 Pale moonlight, barely breaking through the clouds
The creature wanders restlessly through the darkness
Stepping firmly, never dropping its pace
Its entire body honed to perfection
Finally, the clouds split apart and the moon reveals itself
Silver light illuminates the land and the mountains
It dances, it runs, it trembles with unbridled power
And with an entranced roar, it shows its true form


Lunagaron General Info

Lunagaron have an organ that chills the air they inhale, circulating it throughout their body in a unique form of thermoregulation. They can travel long distances and endure environmental changes, allowing them to occupy a wide range of habitats. They usually walk on all fours, but can stand on two legs by shutting down their cooling mechanism, spiking their body temp to expand their muscles.

They also use ice attacks, so raising your ice resistance should give you an edge. Lunagaron are extremely agile when on all fours, so try not to lose track of them. When covered in ice, a continuous assault will not only result in shattering the covering but will also topple the beast. Mind your positioning when powerful attacks are incoming.

      …weak to dragon? Usually monsters that resemble dragons don’t like it, or elder dragons. If that elemental weakness table is true, it’s definitely not weak to dragon, fire and thunder are better, with fire as the true weakness. Infact it seems resistant to dragon, low values = less power.

        So if Odogaron is Clifford, then Lunagaron is [I’m gonna sound dumb but I forgot the name of the dog from Blues Clues and I’m scared to say it’s one of the words in the show title].

          Be sure to bring stun resist when fighting this guy, he has an attack which INSTA stuns you and he can easily combo into another attack for an ez cart back to base you. Dodging and blocking can help of course but when that doesn't work and he hits you with that attack, you really don't have any other options.
