That said, now without any further ado, let’s begin.
This is yet another version of Magnamalo that is much more aggressive than a normal Magnamalo. Scorned Magnamalo is always covered in purple hell fire and even has larger arm blades and harder armor plating. You can find this monster at Shrine Ruins, Flooded Forest, Lava Caverns, and The Citadel.
Main Attacks and Moveset
Chopping tail blade: Magnamalo will strike its tail at anyone who is in front of him, this strike will penetrate the ground and he will be stuck there for a short time, make sure that you make the best use of that time.
Scorned Canon: The monster will move its tail in the air in a circular motion and after gaining enough energy he fires the elemental rays several times.
Ruthless Canon: Once again he will move its tail in the air in a circular motion and will shoot at the targets once he gains enough red glared energy.
Frenzy: This one is definitely the most critical attack of Scorned Magnamalo, he will roar in order to gather energy and will start attacking every target in the arena. The frenzy will automatically end after he attacks the farthest target which will create an explosion.
Sliding Charge: The monster will now use its arm blades, he will lift his arm in order to gain energy and once he has enough he will it to the ground harming everyone in its path.
Weakness and Resistance
While fighting with Scorned Magnamalo, always keep in mind that he is weak to water(3-star), thunder(2-star), and ice(1-star) while on the other hand, he is resistant/immune to fire and dragon.
Beat Scorned Magnamalo
Scorned Magnamalo is quite unpredictable in many of his attacks especially when you are at close range, always make sure that you are not so close to the monster so you can first judge the attack. However, his melee attacks are something that you don’t have to worry about much.
Scorned Magnamalo will also get enraged during the fight and when he’s enraged he can fire quick fatal rays. This attack is quite impossible to dodge if you are way too far from him, a middle to close range is preferable. Riding monsters like Weyren is definitely a good option to go for.
You can also use other monsters to distract Scorned Magnamalo which is one of the most effective ways to beat Scorned Magnamalo and is also one of his weaknesses. Make sure that you take full advantage of his distraction and at the same time always stay ready for his attacks that can come anytime. Riding other monsters to fight Scorned Magnamalo is definitely a good choice here.
His attack Frenzy should always be taken seriously as it’s one of his most crucial attacks. During Frenzy, the monster is up to attacking every target in the arena once he gains enough energy after roaring. Your best option here will be to leave the whole place, move out of his way and stay as far as possible until the Frenzy is over.
Other than all this, make sure that you always keep an eye on his tail since it’s his most used weapon towards its targets. After following all these strategies, you will eventually be able to beat Scorned Magnamalo in Sunbreak.
