Whirlwind Effects

Effect on Hunters

Hunters that are caught in a Whirlwind will be knocked up into the air, momentarily suspending them and making them vulnerable to further attacks. While in the air, they have the option to either perform an aerial attack, use Wiredash, or perform an aerial dodge. 

Effect on Monsters

Whirlwind does not affect monsters.


Whirlwind Cures/Prevention

How to Cure Whirlwind

After being knocked up in the air, hunters can escape being suspended helplessly in the air using one of three ways. First, hunters can perform an Aerial Attack to escape being suspended and return to the ground more quickly. Hunters can also perform an Aerial Dodge, which allows them to escape being suspended by flipping midair towards a direction of their choice. Finally, hunters can perform a Wiredash to send them flying in a direction of their choice, similar to the Aerial Dodge.

How to Prevent Whirlwind

There is no guaranteed way to prevent Whirlwind.
