Once you’ve setup camp in the Rotten Vale, you will attempt to take the Airship deeper inside. On the flight, you will run into Legiana, a large, flying Wyvern who won’t let you pass. In order to continue search for Zorah Magdaros, you will need to kill Legiana. To track this beast, look for Gashes and Footprints it leaves around the map.

Storyline Quest: Legiana: The Embodiment of Elegance.

Hunting Quest Text: “You already know how I feel about that intolerable creature. As long as it controls the skies in the highlands, we’ll never be able to make our descent. Do take care of it, won’t you?”

Characteristics: The apex monster of the Coral Highlands whose diet primarily consists of Raphinos. It emits a chilling wind from its body, which dulls its prey’s ability to escape.

Useful Information: The membrane that covers its entire body enables Legiana to move with incredible speed. Damaging this membrane should help with slowing it down. Poison attacks have also been known to be effective.

Legiana Fight Guide

Main Fight Mechanic: Iceblight + Roar

Iceblight: Legiana can deal ice elemental damage which causes Iceblight. Iceblight increases the Stamina cost of performing certain actions. You can tell you are effected by Iceblight, as your stamina bar will turn light blue and ice crystals appear of above the hunters health bar. To heal this status effect, consume a Nullberry.

Roar: Large monsters have the ability to roar. This ability disrupts whatever action the hunter was doing (stun locks you briefly). There’s not much you can do about it in the early game (you’ll get better armor perks later).


Legiana likes to deal ice damage and also attack from the air. Here are the attacks this monster likes using:

*I attempted to grab all the attacks I saw. Let me know if I missed some in The Pit.

  • Ice Blast (Ice) – While in the air while launch a large blast of ice towards the hunter which coats the ground.
  • Tailwhip (Ice) – While flying, whips its tail around
  • Tail smash (Ice) – Flips in the air, smashing its tail into the ground. Causes ice to appear on the ground.
  • Claw Strike – While in the air, Legiana has a claw attack it uses for close proximity strikes.
  • Dive – Dives towards to hunter while in flight.
  • Bite (on ground) – On the ground, Legiana has a bite attack it uses if close to its head.
  • Charge (on ground) – Can charge towards you on the ground.
  • Tailwhip (on ground) – has a tailwhip move on the ground

Fight Tips:

Legiana can be a pretty tough fight, but is one of the easier flying wyverns you will face in your play through. The big thing is dealing with the ice attacks it does. Here’s are a few tips to make the fight easier.

  • Eat up – Head into the fight having eaten a meal from the Canteen (do this for every fight to make life easier).
  • Bring Nullberry and Healing – Make sure you have Nullberry and healing on you when heading into this fight. Going into the fight without them makes it way harder.
  • Wear Ice Resistant Armor: If you have access to it, wear some armor that has good ice resistance into this fight (Jyura is good).
  • Weaken Body Membrane – Attacking Legiana’s body covering membrane can result in slowing down. This can be pretty beneficial.
  • Exploit Elemental Weakness:  As noted above, Legiana is especially weak to thunder elemental damage.
  • SOS – If you need to, send out an SOS and get some extra help from the MHW community.

Note: share your tips in the comments and I will add them here.
