The Monster Hunter World Legiana is one of our favorite beasts in the entire game, and it's definitely one of the more elegant creatures. In this Monster Hunter World Legiana guide, we'll be walking you through how to kill a Legiana, pointing out and detailing the various Legiana weaknesses, so you know exactly how to fight the monster when you're face to face with it.

But if you instead need anything else at all on Monster Hunter World, including how to quickly hunt down monsters using the Scout Flies, as well as how to easily capture a monster, head over to our Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Legiana Guide

The Legiana can frequently be found in the upper reaches of the Coral Highlands, most often in areas 12, 13, and 15, the last location of which is the actual lair of the monster. You can sometimes find traces of the Legiana as soon as area 8 on the Coral Highlands map, most of which will be scratches, gashes, and footprints, all of which will always lead you up the nearby vine, and to area 12.

Oddly enough, whereas other monsters will usually fight each other on sight, the Legiana will nearly always ignore other monsters in favor of attacking you. This doesn’t actually happen that often however, as other monsters in the map like the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku will never come as high as area 12, so the monsters it’s most likely to encounter is the Paolumu. Still, the Legiana will often flee from battle as soon as the going gets tough, retreating to higher ground in area 13 or 15, or going to the lower ground in area 8.

How to Kill a Legiana in Monster Hunter World

The Legiana can actually be one of the more difficult enemies to engage in Monster Hunter World, since it quite often hovers just above the ground and rains down Ice attacks on you and your Palico. Keeping this in mind, you’ll want to take weapons with you that have a decent reach, and not short weapons like the Dual Blades. A Switch Axe or Long Sword are effective weapons to use, as are weapons like the Insect Glaive and the Bow, since they all have decent attack values and range.

Monster Hunter World Legiana Weaknesses

Since the Legiana is an Ice-based monster, Fire is a great element to use against the beast. Although the tail of the Legiana can’t actually be chopped off by a bladed weapon, you can still deal massive amounts of damage to the monster by aiming for the beginning of the tail/legs area, especially when the Legiana is temporarily stunned and lying on the ground.

Although you can disable the Legiana’s flying ability by dealing enough damage to one of its wings, the monster moves around so quickly that you’ll have trouble landing a few solid hits on the wings of the beast. A good tactic is to try and aim for its head to stun it with a heavy weapon, or circling around the monster, letting your Palico draw its attention while you land a few quick hits to its legs. As long as you keep your distance and avoid the Ice attacks of the Legiana while it’s in the air, this monster shouldn’t pose too much trouble to the seasoned Monster Hunter World player.

Now that we’re all done with our guide on how to take down the Legiana, why not check out our other Monster Hunter World guides, including our complete armor guide, as well as our guide to killing an Odogaron.

    I feel so lucky that I got odogaron during my first hunt. I am new to MH and I was really intimidated with this monster. I always run away when he is close by, as I play solo right now. He is the ugliest monster for me and the most brutal (as a low rank hunter). I main Insect Glaive, Pulsar Rod III, and I mixed and matched Legiana Armor and Hornetaur Armor for him. I trapped him and oh thanked god I got him! Astera jerky is a must have too!

    Deviljho has no habitat, it's just like bazelguese and wanders killing anything that moves or is meaty, it will even eat it's own tail.

    These are the most unhelpful reviews on the Web. Eat a meal. Avoid attacks. It's the exact same how to for every monster. Try to do damage when possible. I mean really. Your advice is simply to play the game. No tips. No strategy. No nothing. Just try to hit it and not get hit. Thanks for the really great advice.

    Loving some one all your life and finding them changing sure does hurts like hell. My husband was once loving and caring but to a point he stopped and totally forsake me, he wasn't having time for me, all he was having time for was his work and cell phone, i was so devastated that i didn't know what to do. I did love him so much, even when he was still not caring i couldn't leave cause i still loved him, i sought for help from every where i could to have my husband back, i luckily found help from a man who was helping people out on relationship and marriage issues. I went on and contacted him, i explained what i was going through in my marriage, then he assured me that he would help me, i did all that he instructed me to do and then he told me that my husband would return to me after some days, i waited patiently and after some days passed my husband came home one evening and started apologizing to me to forgive him for how he had been treating me, i was so surprised beyond words that i can't thank this man enough. If you need his assistance you can contact him on: DR_MACK@YAHOO.COM
