The new Monster Hunter: World Iceborne Fulgur Anjanath sees the series' fire breathing T-Rex returns but this time with an electrifying punch. While its fiery cousin relied on flame-based attacks to fry its foes, Iceborne’s cold-loving variant has a more shocking approach to combat. 

The Iceborne Fulgur Anjanath is a brute Wyvern and uses the thunder element to empower its physical attacks, launching explosive volts, and deliver bone-crunching bites that can make short work of even the most experienced hunting parties. As a result, taking down this terrifying T-Rex can prove rather difficult, especially when you’re only familiar with the regular species of Anjanath.

If you find yourself struggling to survive this high voltage fight and want to pull the plug on Fulgur Anjanath thunder, then make sure you follow our monster guide below to discover the tips and tricks you need to survive this electrifying battle.

Fulgur Anjanath empowers its attacks by storing electricity, then unleashing shocking bites and ranged AoE thunder whenever it feels threatened. Just like its fire breathing relation, Fulgur Anjanath are highly aggressive predators that will attack anything that dares to so much as look at them. When enraged, Fulgur Anjanath will flash its bright blue frills to intimidate its foes. While we may not know much about this deadly subspecies, we do know that it appears to be a lot more aggressive than World’s regular Anjanath.

Fulgur Anjanath’s thunder attacks can quickly drop your health bar to zero, especially if you’re unfortunate enough to get caught by one of its many shocking bites. You’ll want to keep well away from this beast’s jaws, so only clobber it round the head when you have a safe window to do so. For example, after Fulgur Anjanath has used its ranged electrical attack be sure to lay down the damage during the animation’s downtime. While it has yet to be confirmed, we speculate that Fulgur’s electrical attacks will inflict the hunter with the Thunderblight ailment. After all, Thunderblight increases the chance of being stunned by monster attacks and is commonly used by beasts that have an affinity to thunder. 

Packing Nulberries will cure this ailment and help reduce those frustrating stuns that lead to an untimely demise. If you’re tired of watching your health melt away, then also consider grabbing an armor set that has good thunder resistance. Fulgur Anjanath’s attacks will become even more explosive when it becomes enraged, so the extra resistance will really help you survive against some of its most devastating attacks. Lastly, make sure to keep your distance when Fulgur bites the ground, as it will unleash a massive blast of electricity that will both shock and send everyone caught within it flying. It’s often best to bring a few traps to stop this monster from rampaging his way through your party.
