Book of Combo 2


>>> At the beginning of the quest, wait for the Akantor to charge at you, when he is close enough throw a flash bomb to stun him, use this time to drink a Cool Drink and Mega Juice to prepare

>>> Run to his sides and find an opening to go under him, pull our your gunlance and stay close to his belly Jab at him until you have to guard again, practice will let you predict each attack, always stay on guard if you are unsure of the attack. Jab at him whenever he is open

>>> If he goes underground, put away your gunlance and keep running away from the Akantor until he comes up again, then resume attacking once he is fully above ground

>>> If and when you run out of potions, combine new ones with Herb and Mushroom and add honey for Mega

>>> Use Flash Bombs when you need to sharpen or desperate healing - only sharpen when your sharpness falls under green

>>> If you are hit with his upward fang attack, it will lower your defense greatly and you will be surrounded with blue and white clouds, counter this with Armorskin, it will bring your defense back to normal

>>> Don't forget Cool Drinks :P

>>> When he is enraged, he attacks slightly faster, so limit your attacks to stay on guard

>>> When he leans up to roar, guard it, once it's guard you can leave the guard to move up to get 3-6 free jabs him

>>> Wyvern Blast him whenever you get the chance, but only at safe times such as right AFTER an attack


>>> HAPPY HUNTING <<< - Necrus
