A grumpy old beast

MH Rise Almudron Characteristics & Ecology
As its name implies, Almudron spends a great deal of time lurking in mud—at least until it emerges to smother approaching prey. From its tail oozes a strange golden fluid, which Almudron uses to dissolve the ground beneath its prey, arresting them in a mire so that it can drag them under. When enraged, it produces more fluid, turning the mud golden. When you see gold, watch out!

MH Rise Almudron Combat Info
The mud-covered tail is what makes this species strong; attacking this outer layer will chip away at it, so removing this muddy shroud should be your priority. The gold-glimmering mud is harmful to the touch, so mind the color of your surroundings while hunting these beasts.

Quick Combat Tips:
- Almudron's weakspots are its head and tail. Aim for these to maximize damage and knock the monster down frequently. Its tail can be severed but requires it to be broken beforehand.
- When partially submerged, the gap between its tail and upper body is relatively safe while allowing you to attack its head or tail.
- Avoid mud pockets, especially when it is enraged as they deal strong damage-over-time.
- Focus on breaking the Giant Mud Ball when Almudron creates it for a guaranteed extended knockdown. Alternatively, use a Flash Bomb to make it drop the ball, preventing its damage increase on tail attacks.
- Bring Nulberries or perform 2 Wiredashes to remove Waterblight.
- Use mud constructs and platforms to your advantage. Set up jump attacks and avoid certain moves by traversing these hardened mud structures.
Almudron Attacks & Moveset
Almudron is a ferocious Monster with a very complex moveset. Its basic attacks consist of claw swipes and quick bites but it is most threatening when using its massive tail combined with a plethora of mud attacks. All of its mud attacks will inflict the Waterblight status effect on direct hits, significantly reducing a hunter's stamina recovery rate.
Claw Swipes - Almudron raises one of its forelegs high up and sends its claws slashing down at hunters in a diagonal pattern. It will often follow this up with a second claw swipe from its other claw. Dodge towards and underneath the raised arm or backwards in the opposite diagonal direction to avoid the attack. Another follow-up attack it uses is the Tail Sweep, telegraphed by winding its tail on one side and flinging it in a large arc in the other direction.
Lunge - Almudron pulls its head back briefly and then lunges forward for a quick bite. It often follows up with a second, much quicker bite.
Tail Sweep - Almudron takes up a wind-up stance, turning its back to hunters and pulling its tail to one side and then flings it in a large arc in the other direction, hurling away any hunters that get caught in its path. The long wind-up should give you enough time to dodge away.
Tail Slam - Almudron turns its back towards a hunter and then quickly pushes its entire lower body off the ground, sending its tail slamming down in a straight line towards its target. This attack deals heavy damage on a direct hit and has a very long, but narrow range of impact.
Submerge - Periodically, Almudron will dive into water, mud or soft ground following up with a weaker tail slam and transitioning into is partially submerged stance. In this stance, only Almudron's head, forelegs and tail are exposed and it has significantly less reach. Its upper back is also easier to reach in this stance if you are looking to break it. Dealing enough damage to its head or tail during this stance will force it out into a knockdown state.
- Tail Slap - Almudron can use a combination of very quick tail attacks while partially submerged. This move varies between 1 to 3 very quick slaps with relatively short range. Staying in the gap between its tail and upper body will prevent damage from this attack entirely.
- Whirlpool - If Almudron is not forced out of his submerged stance via knockdown, it will eventually transition back to normal stance by creating a whirlpool with a moderate pull effect which drags hunters into the center. Almudron will then burst out of the whirlpool, dealing significant damage to any hunters caught in the attack.
Mud Attacks - Many of Almudron's attacks revolve around using Mud either directly or as an added effect, flinging patches of mud that persist for a while all over the battlefield whilst it performs its other attacks.
- Mud Fling - Almudron will sometimes fling mud directly by winding its tail on either side and tossing them towards hunters. A direct hit will deal damage and inflict the Waterblight effect. Mud patches will also entrap hunters, significantly reducing their movement speed until they leave the area of effect. When enraged, Almudron's mud have a golden glimmer to them and deal strong damage-over-time while in contact. Damage stops immediately upon leaving the mud pocket.
- Mud Pillars - Rarely, Almudron will summon up to four constructs made of hardened mud. These constructs jut upwards violently and direct hits will deal heavy damage and knock players away. The constructs persist for a while and can be climbed. You can use this to your advantage to set up jumping attacks or avoid some of Almudron's moves.
- Mud Tsunami - Almudron will often reposition and sweep its tail across water, unleashing a tidal wave of mud that gushes towards distant players. This mud wave has a very wide hitbox and will knock players away on hit. Quickly sheathe your weapon and evade with a Wirebug dash or utilize the terrain and mud constructs created by Almudron to avoid the attack.
- Giant Mud Ball - As the fight drags on, Almudron will assume a special coiled stance and then swirl around in place, forming a giant ball made of hardened mud which it affixes to its tail. While Almudron is in possession of this mud ball, all of its tail attacks are amplified and deal significantly higher damage. If left unchecked, it will eventually use its ultimate attack. This is telegraphed by a special coiled stance as the camera pans out. Almudron then leaps into the air and slams the ball down hard, dealing massive damage and destroying the ball in the process. It will often perform this move before it transitions to a new area. You can cause Almudron to drop the ball by using a Flash Bomb, removing this mechanic temporarily. However, aiming for the mud ball and dealing enough damage will break it, causing a guaranteed knockdown where the Monster is vulnerable for an extended period.
