It depends on where you are. If you're fighting it in the fortress, you should use anti-dragon bombs on it. Also, use ballista s and cannon s on it. You can only use the dragonator once in the fortress.

If you're fighting it in the town, use all of the supplies given to you and more. Find ballista s and cannon s to use on it too. The dragonator can be used every ten minutes, so take advantage of that because it's very powerful.

Now, if you're righting it without a bowgun or bow, attack it's legs until they all turn bright red. I usually attack the legs one at a time. If you attack them one at a time, just cycle through the legs over and over again. Eventually, they will return to normal so that's your chance to make them red again. Quake resistance help a lot, but you don't have to have it.

I hope this all helps. Good luck killing the Shen Gaoren!

The fastest way to beat this monster is with dual swords, take mega juice to stop your stamina dropping and devil dance away!

First pick a leg, wait for it take a step, move in and devil dance. As your attack ends it will step again, move after it and devil dance, continue until the leg turns red, when it does move onto anouther leg.

After all the legs are red, continue the attacks until each leg is flashing red, when they are all flashing the monster falls down, move in and attack it's body, the legs will return to their normal colour.

You will have to do the same thing again to kill him, good luck on the hunt!

Fastest way to Shen Gaoren is with a hamer/axe. Thw Ceanataur Head Axe works great against Shen Gaoren with a minute to spare after you kiil him bt you must use at least 10 shot of Ballista

You can use the Shining Wyvern blade or another fire long sword like the Lunastra "Lion Emperor Saber". Start from town grab bounce bombs, large barrel bombs, and get 10 ballistas. Go to position at the ballista and wait til you see him. Shoot ten ballistas either at his legs or at his body/shell whatever. Get down there and combo one leg until you get your spirit gauge up and use your spirit combo. Wash Rinse Repeat. His leg turns red you Go to another leg. That leg turns red you go to another leg, until all legs are red and you knock him down. Be sure to dodge roll out of the way when necessary, and use your whetstones when your sword is not sharp. When he falls down cut his face and use the same combos with the spirit combo that you've used on the other legs. Use your bombs when you feel like it, they're useful but not absolutely necessary. Dragonate if you get a good moment but if you don't, then focus on those legs. They're his weakness

Use a weapon with over 900 attack(I am using sieglinde)it is better if your weapon is 1000 attack(use mega demon drug,power seed or power pill and power charm)then you attack the legs until all of them is light red will cause it to fall (3 of the legs are light red and 1 of the legs are dark red also can cause him to fall)when it fall,(the legs will change back to normal)whack it's face and do it again and again until it's dead.I hope this helps!

Alright I'm HR9 and I have beaten the game and I can personally say from my experience the BEST way to do this is with a hammer. I personally used the gunhammer and upgraded it so it was more powerful. Basically all you have to do it's attack one leg at a time when the leg turns red move to the next. When all 4 are red keep attacking 1 leg until it turns a brighter shade of red and repeat with the other 3 legs. Once all 4 are bright red pick any leg and keep attackin it eventually it will turn it's normal color and the shen gaoren will fal to the ground from there attack it's head until it gets back up. Just repeat this process till it's dead. I did it in 20 minutes

I was fighting it then Time's up.
I continued attacking it for 1 minute because of objective cleared time limit.
Then after one minute it died Lol I haven't carved anything yet.
I used flaming pair dual swords because of it's dragon attribute.Then full blango set for the quake resistance.

I went through the town and gathered bombs and ballista s. I used the kirin thunder sword. When it comes down just keep whaling on it's legs. When it stands up use the ballista to skewer it. First you hit the lowest joint until it turns red, then the upper joint near it's body. After that it turns bright red. When it falls down, either use the ballista on it's face or hit it until gets back up. Then use the dragonater. Good luck

If you want to kill shen gao ren in state of crisis or
Approching gao ren.

Use any sword that have these elements:


Do not use a weapon that have :


I use any kind of sword cause I'm experimenting how to kill it but I always use duel sword or lang sword

You must bring the following items:

Mega potion
Max potion
Bounce bomb
Small bomb
Large barrel bomb
Large barrel bomb+
Mega juice(if you use duel sword)
Farcaster (to go up easily to use dragonator)
Bomb material 5only
5 exishroom

When you are in the fort if it's leg can be seen don't use barrel bombs you must only use it in the final

First attack the legs one by one you must turn all in to red then redder when you attack agian
If you are allmost the brige go to the grige and wait cause he will attact the brige with pincer chop
After the pincer chop
Go to the middle of the brige when hes shell is so close to you jump then use anti-dragon bomb
And carve when you are down attact the legs agian if all legs are so glowing red it well fall and it's your chance to attact the head

When almost in the fort watch uot cuase hes ganna attact with the charge and stop him by hitting the leg
When in the fort use all of your ballista
When it is going to attack the fort use the barrel bomb+and do it agian untell it die

Hope I help happy huntingSmile

I defeated that crab one time using my bow, my bow is ceanatur bow 2 I strike him in the head with the weapon ballista and the dragonator and it took me 13 minutes to figth him. And it's hard to be a blademaster you need a quake resistance too.... But all you need is solved

Potion 10
Mega potion 10
Mega juice 5 and also the ingredients of it
And the rest are bombs, ballista and canon
And don't forget power berry.

I used the devil slicer and full Kirin armor and beat him first try. Just keep cycling his legs and hit him with a few barrel bombs and he is easy enough.

Yes.... The best way to kill the gaoren is to use the rathalos sword..... I killed it many times using that sword.... However the titernia and the sigliende don't work on that crab.... And don't forget to use the dragonator twice....

I managed to kill it on my second try using centenarian dagger. I just keep attacking all his leg and use everything that can damage him. I just stop for few second to heal if I got damaged and sharpening my weapon. Also use the best armor you got if it got any slot get the sword sharpening skill from jewels
