Greetings,

I am fairly adept at fighting lynels by now. I wear the Champions Tuni, Hateno Soldiers helm & greaves - ALL fully upgraded to Level 4....

So, anyways I obviously use a mighty meal and savage lynel bow to take them down quickly, the problem is that the G.Lynel in the N. Tabantha Snowfield does Waaaaay more damage to me than any other lynel (one hit kills when I have 24 hearts with his explosion thingy), I have died twice there now Im in Master Mode and I literally have almost gotten everything except for finiahing trail of sword, finding another 600 Korok Seeds, and /7 shrines remaining plus all four beasts are conquered.

Anyone know why this huge descrepancy in damage??? Is it a RNG??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Damage is never RNG.Its simply doing more damage because of its weapon.

Enemy weapons with modifiers for damage will do more damage to you than other enemies that have the same weapon.

So a Lynel with a Savage Crusher with the highest possible attack mod for that weapon will demolish even a max heart player compared to a Lynel with just a durability up or long throw Savage Crusher. Same for Lynels that have a max attack sword or max attack spear vs durability/throw swords/spears. And, of course, crushers will basically always do more damage than sword or spear variants. The moves they use also make a difference with the damage they do.
