It is very important to be at mid range when fighting Acidic Glavenus. This gives you enough time to run away from its attacks or close in to strike. You will be playing the waiting game a lot against the monster, so patience is the key to defeating it.

Glavenus often chains its tail strikes. Because of this, always expect it to do follow-ups, especially after its frontal tail stab and jumping tail slam. Its tail sweep can be avoided by running away or by doing a superman dive if you are within its range.
