During the end of Monster Hunter: World x The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Geralt will have to face a superpowered Leshen. While in CD Projekt RED’s game this creature was easily disposed of here it’s much more powerful due to the rich earth and control over the monsters. Here’s how to beat it.

Use your favorite weapon, there’s no wrong weapon here. However, the Leshen requires Geralt’s Igni fire attack to defense its defensive. The Leshen will constantly use birds as a barrier to prevent Geralt from attacking, it’s annoying due to the spell’s charge but to maximize damage you need to use Igni.

The Leshen has 2 primary attacks, a swing and summoning roots. During the first phase, it’ll summon roots around its body and towards Geralt. After using Igni the Leshen will swing its mighty arms at you within 6 seconds after being burnt, if it makes contact you have a chance to take bleeding damage. It’ll also summon adds to defeat itself but these are weak cannon fodder enemies.

The Leshen will teleport 3 times before the final battle, using the same tactics until the finale. During the final battle, which takes place in the starting area of the Ancient Forest it’ll start to direct the birds at Geralt and use them to cause consistent damage. Igni is paramount here or you will die, in addition, use the vitality flowers to regain health if you don’t have any recovery items.

Monster Hunter: World is now available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
