Dunno why anyone would say MHW Lavasioth is better than older ones when they don't have the lava armor gimmick and the Gen/GU one in particular has actually good weak points and is a fairly decent fight in its own right.


I like the unique moves that past Lavasioth had, like its sky-high belly flop and its infamous U-turn ground swim. Not sure why they removed the former and nerfed the latter, but it definitely made him less of a memorable fight than before.

As for the armor gimmick, it gave me a random thought. Why do you suppose Agnaktor could utilize the cooled lava as armor while Lavasioth couldn't, despite both being able to swim through lava? Other than gameplay reasons to keep them distinct, of course.

Lavasioth's blackened shell is already a layer of cooled lava, it just wasn't hard enough to bounce. Lavasioth is basically always armored but it's not as strong, or rather it wasn't as strong until MHW changed it up.

Well, TIL. I've always assumed till now that its blackened shell was its normal hide instead of cooled lava.

I bet lavasioth is the least hunted monster, that's why they chose it for the second event quest xD

...Yes. That's literally what they said.

whoops, didn't check their twitter post, my bad
