In Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, Yian Garuga, a bird wyvern, returns. In this guide, we will tell you how to beat Yian Garuga with the help of your trusted Monsties in Monster Hunter Stories 2.
Monster Hunter Stories 2 Yian Garuga Location and Strategy
Yian Garuga is going to be a difficult boss due to its toxic attacks. To fight and defeat it, you need to focus on getting healing goods, but mostly antidotes that will help you if your party members are poisoned. Once you have agitated Yian Garuga, its head will enter a breakable state and you can slash its head and tail area.
One of the annoying things in this fight is the poisonous attacks that the monster can inflict on your party members. Since they remain persistent, it is difficult to maintain health. If you are poisoned, you need to use an antidote quickly so that you can heal and continue the fight.
Some of the recommended Monsties to take into the fight are Pukei-Pukei, Leia, Alwin, and Shaulk. You can use the speed attacks of Pukei-Pukei, power attacks of Leia and Shaulk, charge attacks, and healing of Alwin.
You will encounter this monster through a cutscene after heading into its den. Avoid the venomous tail of the monster and try to inflict a double head-on attack with Pukei-Pukei and Shaulk. You need to target the head and use all your Monsties to their benefit.
It is quite common to end up with poison during the fight, so you can resort to defense and use herbs and antidotes. Try to keep the attacks coming while doing a tailspin attack from Pukei-Pukei. Use the power shot attack of Alvin to stagger the monster. You can let Leia mount Pukei-Pukei to do a toxic rain attack. If you do enough damage, it will start to get agitated exposing the head. You can focus your attacks here to temporarily bind Garuga. Once it is on the ground, you can concentrate your attacks on its tail.
Most likely, the monster will use a powerful poison attack against you, forcing you to rely on herbs and antidotes at the start of the next turn. Do a technical attack with Alvin and then follow it up with a Shaulk strike. Pukei-Pukei will then do a tailspin attack.
Once you end up defeating its tail and head, the monster is pretty much done by then. You can continue to attack it until the monster ends up lying dead and you get rewarded with loot and other items.
That’s everything you need to know about Yian Garuga in Monster Hunter Stories 2.
