General Notes

  • Stonefist Hermitaur has an improved water blast attack that covers a wider area.
  • Weapons will bounce off its big pincer. Shots will reflect, hitting the attacker and flinching them but doing no damage.
    • Tripping it will however make this pincer vulnerable, letting off steam making it soft enough to damage.
  • Its legs are now breakable.
    • Breaking its legs doesn't give any extra reward after completing a quest.
  • When not enraged, Stonefist Hermitaur can dig out of Pitfall Traps.
  • Stonefist Hermitaur may fall down for an extended period of time and drop a shiny if its face is staggered.
  • G-Rank Stonefist Hermitaur can perform an outwards sweep with its big pincer.
