Kingtusk is the biggest Kemono you will face off against in the early hours of Wild Hearts. This massive boar is large and possesses many moves that can defeat you in one shot. It causes mud and roots to erupt from the ground, and he grows grass and trees with each stomp he takes. It’s an aggressive creature and will make short work of you if you aren’t familiar with the Karakuri. This guide will detail how to take down a Kingtusk in Wild Hearts.

Kingtusk’s weaknesses and rewards in Wild Hearts

The Kingtusk can move very quickly. It features two massive tusks that can make short work of your health and promptly destroy Karakuri structures. We suggest going into this fight with the Karakuri Katana, as this boar’s primary weakness is slashing damage. Wild Hearts rates each stat and weakness from one to five stars. For example, Kingtusk has a five-star weakness to fire, so using a fire weapon will significantly damage it.

Here are all of Kingtusks’ elemental, ailment, and weapon weaknesses.

Kingtusk Material Drops in Wild Hearts

This creature has several frontal attacks, so we suggest you flank and attack its rear legs instead. If you’re attacking its flank, it will try to slam into you with its body. If you stand near the tail, it will swing the tail twice. You can dodge both attacks with a well-timed slide or dodge. Use a Bulwark wall to stop its signature charging attack and leave it vulnerable to your strongest abilities.
