Before going into fight the Maneater, there is a spot in the fog before entering where you can fire arrows through and hit him. The spot is on the right side of the fog. This can only be done with a bow and a crap load of arrows. Its better to have the White Bow or the Sticky Composite Longbow because of their long range and high power. Don't use the short bow because of its short range and low power or the Lava Bow because it has too much power and will push the Maneater out of range. Now this will only work for the first Maneater, you'll be on your own for the second. When fighting the second Maneater, the first thing you should do is try to cut its tail off because that's where most of its power lies.
