Track it Down

Deviljho appears on various maps and needs to be researched before a special assignment to fight it is unlocked. Pick up clues to fill your research gauge whenever you find them. You can then report the findings to the researcher at Astera to unlock the special assignment.

Stock Up

Before taking it on, stockpile some Nulberries and Adamant Seeds. One of its attacks is dragon breath which inflicts the dragonblight ailment. Using NulberrIes will remove this effect. It also casts Defense Down which can be dealt with by using an Adamant Seed.

Use a Vitality Mantle

Deviljho relies on spraying a vapor that inflicts dragonblight. While having an armor with high defense helps to soften the attacks, a Vitality Mantle offers additional insurance.

Chop off its Tail

Deviljho will often use its tail sweep attack which has a wide range. Severing its tail will reduce the attack’s range.

Dodge its Charge

Sometimes it will unleash a roar which signals that it’s about to charge. If you have dealt with its tail, you can comfortably dodge to the side while it’s lunging. You need to stay mobile to keep up with its attacks.


Phase two commences when Deviljho turns red. You need to channel your attacks on the side of its head or its belly in this state.
