Arzuros is a large, blue grizzled bear that’s a little too fond of honey; basically a more menacing version of Winnie the Pooh. It’s one the first large monsters that a hunter will encounter during their career and the first one they must capture alive.

Running Charge - The Arzuros will go down on all fours and run towards the hunter before skidding to a halt.
180 Degree Claw - The Arzuros will spin around and claw at a hunter attacking it from behind.
Bear Hug - alongside his fast claw swipes the Arzuros may also hold both arms back and move forward to hug the player, causing constant damage.
Claw Combo - The Arzuros will launch forward, swinging its claws four or even five times.
Backward Charge (High Rank) - The Arzuros will go on all fours and charge backwards at a hunter behind it.
The Arzuros’ belly is armoured so the best place to attack it is its side or flank. On low ranks you can do this only really fearing a few attacks but on high rank fights the backward shuffle is an attack you need to watch out for.
Simply focus on dealing a few attacks to the Arzuros before dodging to either side to avoid his attack and then react successfully against his follow-up, with the main dangers being the Arzuros’ charge-based attacks. The Arzuros isn’t a particularly hard foe as long as you focus on his weak spots.
