Garangolm Elemental weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Garangolm is not the type of monster you want to use elemental weapons on, as it's very resistant to them. Thunder, then Fire, is your best choice—and Ice a distant third. No matter where you hit this beast, it's the same damage. Using Water and Dragon is pointless; it's immune.

All ailments will affect Garangolm over time, but they won't be that effective. Blast is the first thing that should be used on Garangolm, if anything. Getting a helper to inflict Fireblight (constant damage) and Thunderblight (easier to stun) will be advantageous to your long fight.
