Short answer, there ARE more than just those 2 water ability elder dragons. long answer has 2 other elders with 1 water ability like amatsu. Long answer, It's interesting to call certain monsters a specific type. Looked up amatsu and it does have a water attack, but otherwise uses primarily wind. where as daora only uses wind, has no blights, yet all it's gear has ice to it. elemental Merphistophelin has a water mode to it. And Shantien have homing water beams at a later level.

think he's talking about canon monsters because if he was talking about any water monster... then yes you are absolutely correct there are many other elder dragons that can use water element.

i wonder if hes an actual underwaterfight and a testrun for something like a water DLC after iceborne. it would make sense to test the waters (pun intended) for watercombat fith a single fight and look how it goes before rolling out a DLC about watercombat

They've done water combat before. If they bring back water combat, hopefully it won't be as painful as tri. Hopefully they have a better understanding of how dodging underwater works by now.

Alot of people didnt like water combat, but I did...I had alot of fun with it infact. There was only like what 3-4 water fights? just use lagiacrus armor and it was simple.Wish they would bring it back.

15 water resistance, 5 lightning resistance. Level 1 or 2 vitality. (3 is okay but not needed) Rarity 10, 11, or 12 armor set upgraded to at least +3. That's literally all you need to be able to take very little damage from most of it's attack, and not die from being hit by it's strongest attack which it only does once or twice per entire mission. There are so many people dying in an SOS for this one and I think it's because people are neglecting their resistances.

Made it through with Blackveil Hazak's Beta Set, every piece fully upgraded, a few defense decorations, vitality and protection too. Took a few hits here and there but nothing that Vaal Soulvein couldn't fix.

100% this is the original form of Vaal Hazak. I mean sure Kushala Daora was similar but this takes the cake. From movements and attack patterns it’s too similar to ignore. There’s a reason Vaal Hazak looks fishy and this monster is the reason why.

Such a stunning monster. No cheap roar or chip damage tactics, just a fun and engaging fight that’s as much a spectacle as it is a battle. I could write a whole essay on why I love this monster. Simply incredible, no other way to say it.

Agreed. She much reminds me of Nergi. In the sense as of how engaging she is. Rather than some cheap nonsense stun/windproof combo bs that Lunastra pulls off. I guess shes one of the few Elder Dragons that doesn't have some annoying gimmick is what I'm trying to say.

Indeed, even when it took me a whole 30 minutes to kill it for the first time, I enjoyed every single minute of it, one of the few monsters I really love to fight, and one of the most original they've made in the whole series. Not comparable to the other bs monsters that really enforce one playing style, she has a really wide moveset and fight transitions seamlessly between the different phases, leaving enough openings to all weapons and styles, but mixing different attacks so you're forced to be flexible as well, truly the best.
