Exploiting Daimyo Hermitaur’s weakness is the key to success.

Daimyo Hermitaur is weak against Thunder, Poison, Blast, and Fire-type weapons and ammo types. This means hunters should take weapons with the above elements to inflict as much damage as possible during the fight. 

Avoid using Dragon elemental types as Daimyo Hermitaur is completely immune, while it also has a strong resistance to Water. We recommend focusing your attacks on Daimyo Hermitaur’s claws as breaking them will cause the creature to topple over, giving you a few precious seconds to hit its head.

Lastly, weapons with piercing damage can focus attacks on Daimyo Hermitaur’s shell, which can be completely removed. This will expose its main weak point, which can be hit for massive amounts of damage.
