That's good to know, I hope you're right. There are some moves I can't quite predict yet with Hyper Glavenus since they're almost instant or tricks me into thinking they would do something else.

I don't know if I'm just lucky today or if Ultra Lucky cat really helps but on my 2nd run with Ultra Lucky Cat on, I got 3 Hyper Pyroscales. Not bad, just 10 more to go.

Whoa, this is surprising. I just soloed Hellblade Glavenus, he's nothing compared to Hyper Glavenus. Hyper is much much much harder. This is awesome. I hope he's like this on all 10 hunts. I'd say he's much easier than Dreadking Rathalos too.

Pierce Up
Repeat Offender/Criteye+3
Evade Extender
Adept Style

This is the basic HBG set you'll need.

For LBG:
(Probably the Astalos LBG)
Thunder Atk+2
Bonus Shot is a personal choice but usually it is worth getting, especially on monsters as tanky as Akantor/Ukanlos.
True Shot Up (for Thunder lvl2 and Piercing Thunder Azzy LBG gets)
If possible, Elemental Crit, it could also replace Bonus Shot if you want.

And of course, Adept Style for at least defensive reasons.

Elemental Crit with no affinity? Bwah-hahahahahaha!
Go back to recommending pellet, Astrabad.

Pretty sure Astalos Shocker rapid fires Thunder 1, which is ass.
Parasol is the better option.

What is it that makes a hunter great?

When I started subquesting Akantor I just made do with the khezu lbg (not even all the way upgraded, but it shoots P.thunder 1 and 2) and I think an armor with true shot up and thunder +2, possibly with load up because it's easy to add. That took about a min or so. Until I finally got that damned dark piece to make the parasol, and with the parasol... it's about 30-40 seconds solo, roughly 7 or 8 shots (with x4 volleys), very easy to do.

There's no way a blademaster weapon can do it as fast as a gun. Just not possible. The time needed to finish the mount is basically the time a gun needs to finish the subquest.

My times with dazzling shot s are much longer, you often need about 10 shots or so and it's not really that powerful honestly.... I still stick by my parasol set for akantor.

I wouldn't solo the quest though, but if I really had to I would try it with the mountainous roar hbg and possibly a pierce silverwind set. The parasol would definitely run out of p.thunder shots before you kill it.
