Avoid staying in front of Arzuros.
Most of Arzuros’ attacks hit targets that are directly in front of it. The monster will miss you most of the time if you keep moving to its side and attacking it before it recovers. Just be careful when you are behind Arzuros as it can perform a hip attack that can knock you down.
Twin Claw Swipe
Arzuros will raise its arms before throwing out both claws in front of it. Dodge behind it or to the side and Arzuros should miss you entirely.
Multiple Claw Swipes
Arzuros will perform a series of claw swipes as he is pursuing you. Simply run away from it to avoid the attack. Note that it is very risky to move to Arzuros’ side or behind him during the move as the swipes somewhat hit wide. Arzuros will continue to swipe even while turning to face your direction.
Arzuros can charge at you from a distance to knock you down when it stands on all fours. Continuously strafing the monster lets you reliably evade the move so keep repositioning yourself after Arzuros has recovered from its attacks. Arzuros can perform the move twice in a row so stay alert after dodging the first one.
Move to the side when you see Arzuros stretch its arms into the air longer than usual as it will do a pounce attack that can bind you.
This attack is usually performed when you stay too long behind Arzuros. The monster will hit you with its behind that will knock you down while dealing considerable damage. Move out of the way when you see Arzuros slightly crouch to wind up the move when you are attacking from behind.
