Well I was about to link you to a video that helped me 100% when I first got to it but it is seemingly blocked so I'll just say, get the Onslaught Hammer or the HR6 Shogun Ceanataur Hammer. Any armour set will do with strong fire and raw defense.

When it charges at you flash bomb it and when the effect goes away and it shakes its head, triple pound it. Don't stay near its mouth when it does its wind cannon attack. When it roars keep a distance from it and when it finishes roaring Super pound its head.

When it goes underground you will see lava blasts around you and you must avoid it, but count how many they are to know where he is going to resurface. After the 8th blast their will be a 9th Blast where the 8th one was and that is where the Akantor is. When it does its body slam triple pound. When it flinches, triple pound even if you miss one hit. Its all about triple pounding.

When it gets stars, hit its left side of his head (YOUR Left). Make sure you stay your distances and bring Mega Potions and Potions and Flash Bombs. Soon enough you will get used to it. Good luck Wink

Well, the other sets will help you even less.
Your best bet is to go full on raw force with Onslaught Hammer and Reckless Abandon.

yeah...i managed to break his dang claw and danged fangs, but the weird tail swipe has a weird whacked out hit box why cant you evade that underneath him? you even get hit under him holy cow...also do you really have to stand THAT far behind to avoid his tail swipecoz i was aiming for the back legs after he charged me...

The deal is to always stay to the left side of his head. If you do it right, then the only attack that will really threaten you is the charge, which can be dodged by rolling under his leg when he lifts it.

Your left, so Akantor's right. You know, the side the tail swipe doesn't reach to.

Ugh, a tip on the tail swipe (+ since you use hammer), try to stay a little left of his head when he does the attack, time correctly and you have a solid hit on his head.

It's all about being in the right position with Akantor...

You timing out doesn't mean that you need a stronger weapon; you just need to find more openings to own his face at. Like with every monster, it takes some time to figure out his pattern to such an extent, that you can pretty much attack at every opening.

Just use your Onslaught and Cenataur U set and focus on its head. Don't rely on glitches to beat it. When it does its roar keep far away from it and as soon as it brings its head down super pound it. Keep to its left and when it does its tail swipe follow where his head is while charging and super pound it.

Again, Flash bombs are useless like that. They only last 2-3 seconds so you won't get that far raining Flash Bombs on it. Just go all out on him with the hammer to its head.

Yeah but still, Monster Hunter isn't about spamming flash bombs the whole fight, its about getting used to a monster and mastering it by itself, but I guess you have a lead if you've broken that much in a little bit of time :-/

yeah i know...still i know i have to solo the akantor...my friends HR are still low..Im helping them rank up but it seems they have the amazing talent of getting themselves killed (perfect example: killed by vespoids in a map w/o monsters exept genpreys and vespoids..lol..i was so mad, coz i told him to stay off the diablos coz he died twice already, and he died from simple vespoids)..so i just play with them sometimes when im in the mood to do joke runs...

Lol Sounds like my friend. We were fighting Blangonga and he has less than a hits amount of HP and I tell him to heal and he says no he "Got this". Then he ends up dying and blames me for "Jinxing it" -_-

they are so crazy, I swear kut ku is a big threat to them....

..most of the time when we hunt i tell the m to stay at the base or go where the boss is not (that is why i framed the tigrex and low rank rathalos for them, so theyd have auto tracker ahaha also they are my extra sources of traptools and tranqs and pots)

----------

Very Happy
Hullo G-rank....

thanks guys for helping me out
