Capcom have shared a new monster bio from Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. This time, it’s the Great Wroggi, the leader of the Wroggi bird wyverns, who can spit poisonous gas.
Official name: Great Wroggi
Type: Bird Wyvern
If you’ve played any of the previous Monster Hunter games, you have certainly come across some smaller monsters that resemble raptors. There was the Velociprey, Genprey and a few others in the first few titles, and in Monster Hunter Tri, we saw the addition of the Jaggi and the Baggi. As with previous games, these Bird Wyverns always had a pack leader that occasionally showed up to spice things up. Now, there’s also the Wroggi and the leader of the pack… the Great Wroggi!
Once you set out to hunt the Great Wroggi, you can except that it will call upon smaller members of its pack to increase its chances of survival. But, the unique feature of this monster is the ability to spit a poisonous mist that will poison hunters and other small monsters upon contact. The poison effect is quite painful, as it slowly drains your health for a short amount of time. So, make sure you bring some Antidotes or an armor set that prevents you from getting poisoned.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe.
