An elder dragon covered with elegant silver scales. It drains the life energy of other living creatures, creeping around at night and attacking its prey from behind. Though Malzeno appears regal at a glance, it takes on a more sinister appearance after draining enough energy.
Malzeno Elemental weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
This Elder Dragon is weak to three elements: Dragon>Fire>Ice. For this fight, Dragon is 100% the way to deal the most damage, significantly if slashing the Head or Forelegs. Ice is the last resort if you do not have Dragon or Fire. Malzeno is immune to Water and Thunder.
Malzeno Weapon location weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
Both Cutting and Blunt are more or less equal in damage dealt. Hammer/Hunting Horn and Bowgun wielders should focus purely on the Head. Those with Blades should concentrate on the Legs and the Tail.
Malzeno Status resistances and ailment effectiveness in MHR Sunbreak
Zero stars mean it is immune to that ailment, while three stars mean it's highly effective against that monster. Malzeno is immune to all status ailments apart from Stun, but alas, is still highly resistant. Blast is great against this Elder Dragon, but other than that, find yourself a Snowbeetle to inflict Iceblight upon it, to inflict temporary slowdown.
