MHFU-Lavasioth Render 001

Physiology

Lavasioth is a bipedal Piscine Wyvern, that reside in lava rather than water. Its body are covered with hard rock scales, glowing magma from its veins, and flaccid underbelly hide. Its head is large and shaped helmet-alike and one of the most strongest part of its body. Its mouth are filled with sharp fangs. Its legs are large with hard rock scales and ended with fins rather than claws. Its forelegs/fins are downgraded, making it small and no use, except for swimming. Its tail are long, large, and slim.

Abilities

Its attacks and movements are vaguely similar to those of a Plesioth and Blos-type wyverns. It can fire huge balls of magma at hunters; when these hit the ground, they scatter into smaller molten rocks which can still do considerable damage. Lavasioth can also jump up and slam itself down on the ground - this attack is very powerful. Another attack is the 'Sliding U Turn'. It will slide bodily across the floor towards hunters, but after missing can turn around and slide at hunters again, with pin-point accuracy.

Lavasioths are featured in Monster Hunter Frontier. It was first introduced in the game on August 8, 2007. They also make an appearance in Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite.

In Monster Hunter Frontier 8.0 Update, HC Lavasioth is introduced, complete with new attacks. It can rear up and fire a spread of fireballs into the air, which fall and damage hunters around it, and it can fire more projectiles from within the lava. It can also use double body-slams.

Behavior

Lavasioth is a rarely seen Piscine Wyvern, living and swimming in lava. It is almost using its body all the time, from body slam to hip-check. Its hard rock scales make Lavasioth able to swim inside lava without burned, also making it hard to slashed by swords, it will need pink sharpness to make it finely slashed without bouncing (Although the slash will leave some bouncing sprinkle).

Habitat

Lavasioth lives and reside in the Volcano area.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Lavasioth Icon A piscine wyvern that resides in magma. Its scales are covered by layers of cooled magma, which makes it one hard nut to crack. It swims around in lava, spewing the molten rock it takes in at its prey… Researchers love to study its peculiar way of life.

Notes


  • Its head and back fins are breakable.
  • Lavasioth is weakest to cutting damage on the stomach, and impact damage on the back.
  • It is easy to notice when it is weak enough to capture; the layer of flowing lava on its body will disappear.
  • Like the Plesioth, its areas are limited. It can only move between areas 9 and 10 in the Volcano.
  • It can chain up to 4 body slams, most often when it is in rage.
  • Lavasioth's Hip Check is blockable, but even if blocked the Hunter will still take minor damage (even if they are using Guard +2).


  • In the video "Magma-Swimming Wyvern", you can see Apceros die when Lavasioth shoot its molten rock, and a Vespoid die when hit by Lavasioth tail swipe; but, when you hunt it, Apceros and Vespoid will not die easily like in the video.


  • In Monster Hunter Frontier Forward.5, two new Lavasioth variants (Aruganosu and Goruganosu) are introduced. They appear in the Tower 3 as a pair, one gold and the other silver. The silver variety favours Ice-element attacks and the gold variety Thunder, and they can combine their moves with deadly effect.
