MHW-Lavasioth Render 001

Lavasioth are Piscine Wyverns that appear in Monster Hunter: World. These monsters utilize molten lava as armor. They are extremely aggressive and will attack without prejudice until the threat has been eliminated. They can be found in the Elder's Recess. Their materials can be used to craft the Lavasioth Armor Set.

Behavior and Abilities

Lavasioth has been overhauled, with new moves, new behavior, new animations, and a new armor mechanic in Monster Hunter: World. Lavasioth's lava shell will cool as it stays out of magma, similarly to Agnaktor. When the lava cools, attacks will bounce off and elements become less effective. The lava shell can be forcefully softened by using a Torch Pod or a fire element attack.

The weakspots of the Lavasioth include the head and underbelly.
