When velkana ices your feet, HOW are you supposed to get out of it??? It's a guaranteed death by stabbing.
Git gud lol
Asking for one simple thing and all we get is this brainless moron. Gee, does anyone know or do people just take it without question?
Thats the thing you can't. You get stabbed to death if it happens
OK. I'm starting to wonder if a slinger torch on the ground will melt the ice, if not then staying away from the head is the only way to not get caught by it.
STab isn't a guaranteed death, you clearly just have poopy armor.
Just ignore the git gud *, it's a waste of time. To tackle Velkhana, I'd suggest Legiana Set +, it got ice resistsnce and divine blessing, which is pretty handy against it.
So I have to do this on single player since I cant hold a connection well enough, for Iceborn wyvern quest I have to carve through about 23k health just to slay it?
The game's difficulty is based on if you play solo or in multiplayer. Solo difficulty has the least HP. Multiplayer increases the monster's HP depending on if you are playing with 2 or more players. 2 player difficulty has less HP than 4 player difficulty. There is no 3 player difficulty. If there is more than 2 players then it will be 4 player difficulty.
by how much does the monsters HP increase with each player. like for example Velkhana will have 22600 hp when solo. So how much does it go up when there's four people? I ask mainly cause I've failed the Iceborn Wyvern quest 6 times already with a group of four people.
Partbreaker and dragonblight helps. Shattering his armor completely will send him crashing down.
Why is Velkhana’s “special attack” just it using all it’s moves at once? No use of armor, no special ice storm, just all of it’s normal ice attacks at once with maybe some range increase; but it benefits you to stay down if you’re hit! The other specials are terrifying, potential one-shots thats are great at invoking frenzy and evasion, but Velkhana, the FLAGSHIP, has a special that’s kinda just “Oh, it’s using the special. I got hit? Meh, Imma just stay down. And it’s over. Aight.” Yeesh... Compare that to Nergi’s dive bomb and you’ll see the issue.
Don’t get me wrong, Velkhana themself is pretty darn awesome, but the special felt anticlimatic.
I need help. I'm trying to fight Velkhana with my Lance/ Gunlance and Velkhana's beam attacks just go through my block entirely. How can I fight it?
So use guard up+ironbreaker or chese him by staying in the air with the insect glave the whole fight cus he can't hit you.
There is a charm that allows you to block normally unblockable attacks
Uragaan 2-set bonus lets you block it
Use the Uragaan set bonus.

I also used to be a gunlance and lance main but now i use the insect glave
Vaal Hazak that actually flies and his high on Ice
some of its moves, one sound effect and its general model are rather similar to (if not completely the same) kushala daora, which makes me think velkhana is a substitute to (possibly the original pitched idea) a kushala daora with ice control, but im just a rando on the net
Thinking about this, it’s entirely possible that a kushala daora did get lost in the hinterlands and had to adapt. That’s actually a really good hypothesis. Guys I think I like this one.
Hit boxes on the ground ice are just as bad as the Nergigante dive.
I think the Locations notes need to be looked at again. I’ve run Investigations where I’ve hunted Velkhana in Hoarfrost Reach, Elders Recess, and Wildspire Wastes. I’ve also gotten Investigations for Velkhana Hunts in Coral Highlands, Ancient Forest, and even Rotting Vale (did not run those since meh rewards). These are from PC
can't get anywhere near it without getting stabbed to look like a block of swiss cheese. then if i try to maintain distance, the damn sweep beam attack gets me.
git gud
evade extender to dodge through the sweeping beam with ease
*Emmentaler. Learn your cheeses.
Rath glaive with cold res jewls works fine
Evade window is your best friend.
