Run! Run!
The beast is on its way!
From the snowy depths
It comes to find its prey
With its chilling breath
It forms a blade of ice
Then it goes out hunting
For something to excise
One wrong step
And it's too late
The beast hears all
Returns irate

MH Rise Goss Harag Combat Info

  • Elemental iceblightg icon mhr wiki guideIce Damage monster
  • Weak to fireblight icon mhr wiki guideFire (⭐⭐⭐)

Quick Combat Tips

  • Goss Harag's weakspots are its head and arms. However, Goss Harag stands upright for the majority of an encounter, making it difficult to reach its head. Aim for the arms instead but keep in mind that the arms are where all of its attacks will come from.
  • Goss Harag covers its arms in ice when enraged and creates a set of ice weapons which not only increase its damage output, but also its reach.
  • The ice weapons Goss Harag creates can be broken with enough damage. Breaking them will knock the monster down and create a huge opening to attack its head.
  • As Goss Harag's HP dips below a certain threshold, the ice weapons it creates will consist of double arm blades and its moveset will drastically change.
  • Many of Goss Harag's attacks are devastating but slow and have clear telegraphs. Take advantage of this and learn dodge timings to setup counterattacks.

 

Goss Harag Attacks & Moveset

Claw Scrape - Goss Harag stabs one hand into the ground on its side and scratches the ground in an arc in front of it. Dodge backwards or to the opposite arm to avoid this.

Backhand Sweep - Goss Harag raises one arm towards the opposite shoulder and spins 180 degrees as it performs a backhanded sweep. It repeats this move to return to its original orientation. A direct hit deals moderate damage and knocks players away. Dodge backwards to avoid.

Double Slash - Goss Harag raises both arms briefly and then follows up with two quick swipes with each claw. Each swipe comes from a high position and can easily be dodged under, moving towards the monster's sides.

Ground Pound - Goss Harag quickly punches the ground in front of it and then slowly winds up for a second punch, dealing heavy damage and knocking players down. Getting hit by either punch will impose a longer recovery time and it is recommended you Wirefall away to avoid follow-up attacks. Goss Harag will sometimes leap towards hunters during the first punch. Roll towards its side to avoid either hit.

Tackle - Goss Harag postures by lowering its shoulder and performs a short dash forward. Deals light damage and can knock players away.

Charge - Goss Harag postures similarly to a tackle with a slight wind up and then charges towards its target and then powerfully swiping in a 180 degree motion. Has a very soft lock-on and is easily dodged but the claw swipe has a much wider hitbox than it appears. It is best to dodge before the swipe.

Head Butt - Goss Harag shuffles backwards slightly as it lowers its head, and then rams it at players. Deals light damage and can knock players down. Dodge under its arms and to the side.

Fissure - Goss Harag pounds the ground with both hands, sending rocks and debris jutting out of the ground in a straight line towards its target. The attack has a narrow hitbox and can be sidestepped. When enraged, Goss Harag may first disengage by leaping away a good distance and creating the fissure as it lands.

Enrage - When going enraged, Goss Harag lets out a loud roar as its face and limbs turn a bright red color. It will then gain access to its ice weapons and a whole set of new attacks.

Ice Breath - Immediately after enraging, Goss Harag will disengage by leaping away a great distance and then breathing out two long beams of ice. The first breath will follow a vertical pattern going from bottom to top while the second is a very wide horizontal sweep from one side to the other. As a rule of thumb, whenever Goss Harag begins enraging, you should sheathe your weapon and sidestep the vertical beam and then immediately perform a vertical Wiredash to avoid the horizontal beam. You can Wire hang in the air by pressing  a button switch mhr wiki guide in case you of a premature jump. Goss Harag will always follow this move up by breathing onto its arms and creating a set of Ice Weapons. If its Ice Weapons are removed while Goss Harag is still enraged, it may perform the Ice Breath sequence again within one enrage window.

Ice Weapons - Goss Harag breathes onto its arms, creating a set of deadly Ice Weapons, increasing both its damage and reach as well as granting access to new attacks. Goss Harag will always form its Ice Weapons after using its Ice Breath attack, but may also perform a much quicker, standalone version without the Ice Breath if it loses its weapons but remains in the enraged state. It will also perform the standalone version when it switches areas while remaining enraged. Goss Harag's Ice Weapons comes in three configurations depending on its state:

  • Single Ice Blade - This weapon configuration is exclusive to Low Rank hunts. Goss Harag forms a single Ice Blade on its right arm.
  • Ice Blade + Wrecking Ball - This configuration is exclusive to High Rank hunts. Goss Harag forms an Ice Blade on its right arm and encases its left arm in a block of ice which it uses as a wrecking ball. Getting hit with the wrecking ball will cause either a stun or temporary wirebug lock.
  • Double Ice Blade - This weapon configuration is used when the Goss Harag is close to death. Out of desperation, Goss Harag forms Ice Blades on both hands. This gives it considerably more reach than the other two configurations and is used in both Low and High Rank settings.

Ice Weapon Attacks

  • Quick Slashes - Goss Harag swings low diagonally in front of it. When equipped with two weapons, it can perform this up to 3 times in succession. The final hit will have a long recovery time that can be exploited. Goss Harag will occasionally follow this move up with a Meat Cleaver or a leaping Blade Skewer.
  • Blade Skewer - Goss Harag plunges its blade into the ground in front of it, attempting to skewer a hunter. The attack has a small hitbox and long recovery time.
  • Backhand Blade - Similar to its unarmed version, Goss Harag pulls up its sword arm to the opposite shoulder and then does a backhanded sweep while spinning 180 degrees. Unlike the unarmed version, Goss Harag will not follow up with a second swing to return to its original orientation.
  • Whirling Strikes - Goss Harag winds up by bending down and pulling back its weapons to one side and then attacking explosively as it swings its weapons in a whirling motion.
  • Meat Cleaver - Goss Harag raises its Ice Blade arm and sends it crashing straight down in front of it. This attack deals massive damage and knocks the player down with a long recovery time. Goss Harag may leap towards its target if they are a short distance away before landing the strike.
  • Double Meat Cleaver - Similar to the Meat Cleaver attack but exclusive to the Double Ice Blades, Goss Harag performs a large downward chop with one blade and then quickly follows up with the other. The second strike has a long recovery time which players can exploit to get a few hits in. Note that getting hit by either of these strikes can stun the hunter, which Goss Harag will promptly follow up with an Execute attack.
  • Execute - Used exclusively when a hunter is stunned by Double Meat Cleaver. Goss Harag takes on a tall, menacing stance as it slowly walks towards the stunned hunter. When it reaches its target, it executes them with a deliberate downward strike with its left blade. This attack deals massive damage and the hunter should do all they can to get out of the stun animation as soon as possible.
  • Frost Shards - At the cost of its weapons' integrity, Goss Harag swings violently, splintering its weapons and sending shards of ice flying at its target. The shards have a mild homing effect but a slow flight speed and can easily be dodged as soon as you see them. This attack has two variants. The first is two swings sending two sets of shards. The second is a full release of up to 5 swings depending on the monster's current weapon integrity. A full release will destroy the Goss Harag's weapons.
