All Zinogre Weaknesses

Zinogre Elemental Weakness

Zinorgre's main weakness is ice, so make sure to bring along a frosty weapon if you've got one in your catalog of gear. If you lack an ice weapon, bring along water weapons instead, as these are a viable second option, though noticeably weaker than ice. Fire weapons are an effective third weapon, though less effective than water. Dragon weapons should be your last resort, as they don't deal much elemental damage to Zinogre. Avoid using thunder weapons on Zinogre.

If you brought some ice, water, or fire elemental weapons for your fight with Zinogre, be sure to focus your attacks on its Back and Tail Tip for the most damage. Dragon weapons deal the same damage no matter where they hit Zinogre.

Zinogre Resistances and Ailments

Zinogre isn't exceptionally weak to ailments, but Blast and Iceblight deal significant damage to this Fanged Wyvern. Do not use the Paralysis ailment on Zinogre. Zinogre's immunity makes this ailment ineffective. Poison, Stun, Sleep, Exhaust, Fireblight, Waterblight, and Thunderblight will eventually take their toll but are noticeably weaker than Blast and Iceblight.

Zinogre Drop Rates - Carves, Capturing & Breaking

Depending on your quest, you can get different rewards to forge armor and weapons, but each has a drop rate percentage, ultimately RNG. It is pure luck what you receive.

  • There are multiple ways of gaining items
    • You can carving three times once the monster is dead.
    • You can capture the monster instead of killing it.
      • Or carving the broken appendage of said monster.
    • From looting the drops from the monster
    • After successfully compleing your quest

Most monsters have breakable parts, and Zinogre is no different. Zinogre's Head, Foreleg, Torso, and Tail can all be broken with enough force. If you break these parts during the hunt, you will earn extra rewards after completing the quest.

About the Author

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
