Monster Hunter World Deviljho - How to Track and Kill the Deviljho in Monster Hunter World

Here's how you can go about tracking down and slaying the powerful Deviljho in Monster Hunter World.

Back when Monster Hunter World first launched, the Deviljho was the first beast to be added to the game as a DLC creature. In this Monster Hunter World Deviljho guide, we'll be walking you through how and where you can find the Deviljho, as well as how you can go about killing the beast in combat.

If you instead need anything else on Monster Hunter World, including a list of all the weapon tiers in the game as voted on by the players, as well as detailed guide on how to capture every monster in the game, head over to our Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Deviljho Guide

Back near the beginning of 2018, the Deviljho was the very first creature that Capcom introduced after Monster Hunter World first launched. It's far from the last new beast to hit the game, and if you want a walkthrough of additional creatures that have arrived after launch, including the Kulve Taroth and Lunastra, you'll want to head over to our Monster Hunter World events guide.

How to Find the Deviljho in Monster Hunter World

To find the Deviljho, you're going to want to have completed the Pink Rathian quest, that sees you tracking the '???' monster. Your ability to find the Deviljho is actually down to chance. If you load into a high rank quest of expedition and find '???' marks while exploring the map, you'll know that the Deviljho is in your current region. If you don't come across any of these unique markings, you'll know that the Deviljho is not currently in the same map area as you.

First of all, you’re going to want to take some armor with you that’s not only got an incredibly high defence rating for fighting the Deviljho, but also one that protects against the Dragon element. The Deviljho has an attack that sprays a Dragon element vapour from its mouth, so you’ll want to be full protected against this devastating barrage.

We’d also recommend taking a fairly quick weapon with you for taking down the Deviljho. The monster is deceptively quick, as although it’s roughly the size of an Anjanath, is has the movement speed of a Tobi-Kadachi. Speaking of the Tobi Kadachi, the Deviljho can scoop up both it and the Great Jagras in its wide mouth, whenever it encounters either of these lesser monster in the Ancient Forest region.

The Deviljho acts as a lot like the Bazelgeuse, and you’re going to find it in the Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, and Elder’s Recess areas of Monster Hunter World. If it and the Bazelgeuse encounter one another out in the wilds, and turf war will immediately begin between the pair of monsters, so you can use this to your advantage if you want to pit the powerful monsters against one another.

If you do manage to trap the Deviljho in either a vine or pitfall trap, it’s actually going to fight back while ensnared, unlike other creatures in Monster Hunter World that’ll just stay relatively still while trapped. Although you can still lay into the Deviljho while it’s trapped for maximum damage, you’re going to want to try and get behind the monster so as not to get hit by an attack from its head.

The Deviljho in MHW is weak to thunder, so make sure to take a weapon with you that, when charged, deals out thunder damage to temporarily stun the monster. Once the Deviljho is eventually downed, you'll be rewarded with the Dragonproof Mantle for your efforts, which works perfectly if you're using any of the brand new Deviljho-based weapons.

We might have gone over the upcoming Deviljho in great detail, but we have a wealth of additional Monster Hunter World guides here at USgamer, including how to kill Xeno'jiiva, as well as our guide on the best Monster Hunter World armor.
