So, AT Xeno is pretty much the hardest AT Monster in the game…..or he can be ridiculously easy. A few things to keep in mind;
Heat Guard is your best friend in this fight. It comes easily from the Clearmind Charm or the AT Kulve Taroth Y Legs (I recommend the Legs) and it completely negates the Lava Floor effect and the Fireblight, making the fight much easier and giving you more room to run around.
You can block most of his moves, including the AoE explosion from stamping his foot, though it will knock your ass back. Just don't try to block his big-ass laser – instead dodge it and use it for the free DPS window that it is.
The fight is supposed to take some time, so you don't need to rush it.
Now, I suppose you want to know what makes him the easiest AT fight, maybe the easiest Elder in the entire game?
Airborne Dragon Ele Insect Glaive
Xeno's weakpoints are his wings, back and head and the Dragon Element…but those are out of reach of most weapons, forcing you to deal with his feet and chest mostly. But IG can spend almost the entire fight airborne, slapping his 3 weakest points the entire time, avoiding 95% of his fight mechanics, able to attack him while in the air. The ONLY move he has that is a danger at this point is the AoE explosion….and you can use the IG to cheese the shit out of it by dodging the first explosion, then dodging back at Xeno and continuing to slap his ass while ignoring the rest of the move.
Here are a couple basic examples of builds that you can use vs. AT Xeno for this (obviously not optimized or best, as I tried to avoid suggesting using other AT or KT items except for the AT KT pants which are easy to get by leeching);
Empty Deco Slots Assume you have something you want to put there personally, not recommended to leave empty.
Drachen 4-Piece with Devil IG (Master's Touch with both Airborne and Ele Airborne) http://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?226,118,107,107,105,118,2,0,0,0,0,0,0,90,30,0,0,0,0,90,90,0,0,0,0,0,5,0,3
Xeno 3-Piece with Catastrophe's Light (Razor Sharp, assumes you have both of the "Freebie" Attack Decos you can get in-game) http://honeyhunterworld.com/mhwb/?208,95,88,87,76,87,87,0,0,0,5,0,0,33,0,0,5,0,0,0,0,0,90,0,0,0,0,0,1
I have a personal build for when I feel like slapping Xeno around;
It isn't the most optimal (C.Light isn't the best Dragon IG, but I like how it looks) but definitely hurts and gets the job done.
