Key Attacks

Body Slam - If the Plesioth turns side on then rams its whole body towards the Hunter. This attack has a massive danger zone.

Slither - The Plesioth lays itself on the ground and then slides forward. This is also used to return to the water, so make sure you’ve rolled away in advance.

Water Stream - The Plesioth opens its fin and lowers its head launching a massive burst of water at the hunter (this is also used from the water if a hunter remains on the shore). when underwater this stream can be fired in a sweeping motion.

Backflip - A favourite of the Plesioth when it is underwater, it flicks its tail upwards at the Hunter while doing a backflip. You can see this attack early as the Plesioth moves its tail into position, so try and move early.

Recommended Strategy

As with other Wyverns it’s a good idea to get under the Green Plesioth and attack its legs, but always move away because the Green Plesioth has a number of attacks that can easily wipe you away from such a position. Simply move close, hit him a few times and then roll away.

As long as you stay in close proximity to the Green Plesioth then his projectile attacks won’t be a problem, so try and give chase if he moves away and especially if he dives into the water.

When submerged the Green Plesioth shows its most significant difference; its water beam can be fired in a sweeping motion. As such you’ll want to stay both abreast and elevated of the Plesioth, approaching from an elevated side-on angle so that his Water Beams don’t catch you completely off guard.

As with all water monsters the Green Plesioth becomes fast underwater, so movement and cautious attacks become paramount.

Notes :

  • The Green Pesioth can be fished out of the ocean if you have a Frog.
  • The Green Plesioth lowers its fins when low on Stamina - use this as a sign to attack.
