MH Rise Aurora Somnacanth Characteristics & Locations

Light illuminates the dust scattered around this subspecies, making their fantastical appearance shimmer softly.

They use the permanent cold emanating from their bodies to freeze the vicinity, and then the frozen surface to move around swiftly.

  • Hunting Information: This subspecies slides and circles around more often than the normal Somnacanth. Keep focused on their position when they have all four legs on the ground. The ice breath is very powerful, causing near-fatal freezing. You can escape up in the air, but focus on circling behind and keeping your distance.

 

Quick Combat Tips

  • Aurora Somnacanth is weakest at its head but note that it is also where most of its attacks will come from. It may be difficult to reach its head when it is standing on its tail. In such cases, focus your attacks on its tail instead.
  • Take advantage of Aurora Somnacanth's long animations and recovery times for certain attacks as it is left vulnerable for long periods.
  • Different from regular Somnacanth, it cannot put you to sleep, but its most dangerous attack is the frost beam which can reach long distances. Its beam can be dodged by jumping high in the opposite direction the beam is swinging at.
  • Come equipped to resist Ice damage and perform fire damage. Blunt weapons are also recommended.

Slam - Aurora Somnacanth stands on its tail, twisting and rotating until jumps on a target doing a frontflip and hits the ground.

Ice Breath - Aurora Somnacanth stands on its tail and fires a beam of frost through its mouth pointing to the ground inflicting Ice damage to closeby targets around the monster. 

Sweeping Ice Breath - Aurora Somnacanth raises its head facing either to the left or the right as it makes a hissing noise. It then breathes out a beam of frost in a slow, sweeping motion to the opposite side that covers a long distance. When Aurora Somnacanth postures for the attack, dash towards its side or back and begin attacking as the breath animation is very long, leaving the monster vulnerable. Take care not to get in the breath's path. You can use a vertical Wiredash to leap over the breath in case getting to the monster's side is not an option.

Tail Untwist - Twists its body, and then untwists to whip its targets with its tail.

Tail Whip - Jumps to a target and quickly makes a spin to to hit the target with its tail.

Frost Charge - It stands on its tail and moves awkwardly to the side while perfermoing a bit of melee damage to anything on its way and then suddenly attacks a charging its mouth exploding the frost charge to the ground. 

Ground Dash - Aurora Somnacanth lowers its head while making a snarling noise and then dashes sliding along the ground in a movement like a snake moving quickly and turning around to then perform another attack as it finishes dashing around.

Ice Blast - Aurora Somnacanth stands on its tail waving its head with its mouth opened upwards and charges Frost energy for a short moment and then suddenly shots the ground in front of it causing 3 lines of frost explosions.
