Knowing Lunagaron’s elemental weaknesses gives you a massive edge when fighting the Fanged Wyvern in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Hunting this new monster in the game will also provide you with one of the strongest elemental weapons in the game.
Lunagaron is one of the newest monsters to be added in Monster Hunter Rise with the latest Sunbreak expansion. The Fanged Wyvern features various kinds of attacks depending on the large monster’s contemporary stance.
Given that the Lunagaron drops some very rare materials when dropped, farming this monster repeatedly is definitely worth investing your time in. Our guide dives into many of the need-to-knows — including the weaknesses as well as the rewards claimed from defeating Lunagaron in the game.
Lunagaron is weak against a variety of elements including Fire, Thunder, and Dragon in that specific order. This means that the Fanged Wyvern is weakest against the Fire elemental weapons, followed by Thunder the second most, and Dragon as the third. Additionally, you should also avoid carrying Water or Ice elemental weapons as they have negligible to no effect on the monster.
Similar to most monsters in the game, the Lunagaron’s weakest part is its head. For this reason, you should be looking to attack this area whenever you get the chance. However, Lunagaron is incredibly agile, which can make it extremely difficult for Hunters to continuously strike the monster’s weak part.
In order to keep Lunagaron from moving, be sure to strike the monster whenever ice covers its body. This will shatter after a set amount of damage has been done, giving you a few precious seconds to hit its weak points when it has toppled over.
You can find the Lunagaron across multiple locations on the map. Here’s a list of the confirmed locations where the Fanged Wyvern has been spotted in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.
- Shrine Ruins
- Frost Islands
Before heading any further, you should note that this specific monster is only available in Master Rank quests, meaning that you will have to purchase the Sunbreak expansion to hunt it in the game.
