Dauntless Nayzaga - how to kill it

Featured post Nayzaga squaring off against the player.

The Nayzaga in Dauntless is one of the tougher early Behemoths in the game. The shards they shoot out of their backs are electrically charged and unless you manage them, you’ll be overwhelmed by electric balls that shoot out of them after a while. Naturally, you don’t want that, so we’ll give you the tips you need to beat this boss.

Those new to hunting Behemoths should brush up on the basics. Head over to our Dauntless Behemoths guide to find the rest of the bosses, or head back to our Dauntless guide & tips for more tips and tricks.

How to kill the Nayzaga

This one can be a tough lizard to take down if you don’t work together. Make sure you have worked out your roles between your team of four. If you’re able to party up for this one, I’d recommend it as it will save you a few headaches. Two should have weapons that have a good area of effect, such as the Chain Sickles or Sword, while the other two should have weapons that focus on doing as much to the Nayzaga. When you’re hit by any of its electrical attacks, back off and start dodging until the status condition subsides. This is because you won’t be able to heal until it goes away, so mitigate that risk and back off.

So the thing about Nayzaga is that it shoots out shards. These shards will charge up electrical blasts that you can reflect back at the shards by hitting them. The problem is that it fires out multiple shards and they can fire at different time sequences. You’ll ideally want two to focus on clearing these shards away so that the other two can focus on the Nayzaga. Those focusing on the Behemoth should keep an ear out for when the shards fire their charges, so that you can avoid getting hit by them.

Aside from firing shards, the Nayzaga has access to a bunch of attacks that are melee based, such as tail and claw swipes swipes and slams with the fist. One other attack you should definitely be aware of is when it begins to charge up. It’ll swipe with its tail, which also sends some lightning in a straight line and you really don’t want to be hit by that. As long as you have at least a couple of you micromanaging the shards, you should have a relatively easy time.
