How to Repel Velkhana in Monster Hunter World Iceborne
A Tale of Ice and Fire is the 11th main quest in the story for Iceborne and it has you investigating the Elders Recess locale to find out why Velkhana has made an appearance, which then leads to a surprising fight.
Yes, you will have to face off against Velkhana in the Elders Recess, but you will not have to worry about actually slaying it for the quest to wrap up.
This version of Velkahana that you will be fighting is actually pretty easy to manage, as long as you avoid its ice attacks and get some hits in when you can.
As long as you manage to survive and deal some damage, a cutscene will play out and the quest will be completed in no time.
Once you finish that up, you will see Velkana with a strange and powerful aura surrounding it, showing you that this definitely won’t be the last time you’ll see the majestic elder dragon in the story.
So to sum things up:
- Repel Velkhana by simply surviving the battle and dealing some damage.
- A cutscene will eventually pop up, with the quest completion screen appearing soon after.
That’s all you have to know about how to repel Velkhana in Monster Hunter World Iceborne. Best of luck completing and surviving this early encounter with Velkhana.
