Barioth is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW). ベリオロス (Beriorosu) in Japanese. It was added with the Iceborne Expansion on Sept 6th 2019. 

 

The snow-white flying wyvern with huge tusks found in the frozen tundra. It uses its forelegs and tail to traverse ice with ease.

Barioth Details & Locations

 

Barioth Combat Info

A returning Flying Wyvern characterized by its powerful and fast attacks. With its potent tail swipes, sharp claws and pouncing, this foe, while tough, can still be beaten either solo or in a group

This fast-moving monster deals both physical damage and elemental damage, shooting out powerful blasts of chilled-wind that can inflict Iceblight.

  • It is advisable to focus on breaking its claws, as this will decrease the monster's mobility and leave it open to attacks for a few seconds.
  • Like any normal wyvern, Barioth is vulnerable to traps, so preparing your Palico with Flashfly Cages can help immensely, along with packing Pitfall Traps.
  • Ice Resistance, Resuscitate and Coldproof decorations are useful for this fight.
  • Hunters should try to stay in close range when fighting this monster, as it has some very long-range attacks.
    • When it does its huge leaping attack, hunters should try to roll to the left.
  • Your weapon should have white sharpness to take on this monster.
  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head
    • Orange: Hindlegs/Body
    • White: Wings
    • Green: Tail
  • Enraged mode: Eyes will glow red instead of its natural blue.
    • Barioth enrages after every flash, once he gains his vision back.
    • Once his rage wears off, he is really weak, taking long pauses after attacks and not even his ice breath will work.
  • It is recommended that hunters bring Flash Pods and Flashbugs, to prevent this wyvern from pinning you down as you're healing, sharpening, or buffing.
  • Partbreaker 3 is good as Barioth's wings and especially the fangs can be very hard to break.

      He keeps you in your toes all the time so you have to be quick and into the game. He hits hard and he hits fast. I already said the skills that I use so I’m not going to mention those. I beat him with DB and LS and I think personally those are really good weapons for him. This is the first really challenging monster in the expansion so if you lose it’s not that bad(It took me 10+ tries lol). Fire and/or blast works against him. I don’t think there are any Fire weapons at this time though so it might not work. If there isn’t I recommend the Defender weapons. These do blast damage which really helps against his massive (at the time) health pool. When it comes to actually fighting him always try to break both wings. It is tricky and it will take patience but it happens eventually. There are falling boulders in zone that he goes to so use those to your advantage. Once you beat him I highly recommend his weapons against the next brute Wyverns. Remember don’t give up!!! Happy hunting and hope this helped!

        If you are stuck on MR3 blizzard blitz, there are a few things that will help you. 2 Ice spikes in sector 9 of the map. So basically, u need shock trap and pitfall traps ready at the same time when boss runs into sector 9. In sector 9, on the ground there are 2 clusters of cockroach-like small monsters, place the trap near them (right beside). So you set up 1 trap, boss trigger it, use kinsect or ranged stuff to hit the ice spike on top and set the other trap at the other cluster. Advisable to avoid attacking boss in sector 9 right after you trigger the 1st ice spike and focus on setting up the 2nd trap due to time constraint. You can start attacking after the 2nd ice spike.

        If that is not enough and you face timeout, it is time to buy large barrel, normal barrel (with timer) and cultivate devil blight mushrooms. Craft Mega barrel using them. You need around 30(min)-50 mega barrels if boss keeps destroying them with ice breath. Also, ensure you craft the bombardier charm 3 and ensure you have like 5 farcaster (you will only use them when boss limps back into the nest). You need to carry 2 large barrel, 2 mega barrel, 1 farcaster, 1 stack of devil mushroom so that you can trigger 4 minimum mega barrels (other 2 by crafting) per trip. Also, it is vital for you to unlock central camp 7 (important) to save travelling time.

        Each time boss is enraged, I will advise you to run back to camp 7, boss will follow you and this makes your subseuqent fight a bit more easier because now your battlefield is reset to the starting area where you 1st encounter barioth and your camp is RIGHT next to that battlefield, which makes restocking of mega barrel easy without farcaster. I will advise you to drop 1 mega barrel after boss uses ice breath and get boss to dive into it to trigger the explosion and then redo the same for remaining 3 barrels or you can do 2 barrels per dive. Take some practice to figure out how to trigger the boss to dive into your barrel (which is why you need 50, I used around 20++ mega barrels).

        I am using beotodus alpha with earplug and most importantly, 3 resistor jewel for blight immunity to help in escaping boss when he is enraged.

        When boss limps back to nest ( Boss limps back to nest before my 10 mins countdown starts so I think this strategy is viable):
        This is the most important part because you are maximising your damage before timer runs out. Do the following:
        1. Set up 2 mega barrels near the head of the boss.
        2. Set up 1 trap near the barrel.
        3. Craft back the 2 mega barrels.
        4. Place the timed normal barrel to trigger explosion and move back a bit.
        5. Boss will wake up and move a bit before getting trapped again.
        6. Quickly, place 2 crafted mega barrels and timed barrel to trigger the 2nd explosion.
        7. Once done, DO NOT run back to camp 7, use farcaster to travel back because you want the boss to stay in the resting place so that when you exit the zone, the boss will go back to sleep again for you to trigger sleep-bombing again. If you run back to camp and boss follows you, he may not sleep because he is now in a new area.
        8. Once back in camp, restock mega barrels, large barrel and traps. Repeat step 1 to 7 until boss is dead. I think it took me 1 to 2 restocking trips this way to end his remaining hp.

          I fought him with paralysis CB with some MR armor with focus and artilery. I have to say surviving the first minutes of the fight was a real challenge to me, but eventually I wore him down. Palico was the mvp with sleep allowing me to magabomb + SAED his face. Paralysis kicked in a few times allowing for good damage or tenderizing. He got knocked back a few times from the block discharge too, which never really happened before. All in all fun fight, took about 30 min.

            So guys I just came to give some tips even they aren’t good. So…Ice resistance helps and so does defense boost. Divine blessing will help against his hard hits. The best skill is probably evade window. Constitution helps. I always take health boost in every fight. That’s all I have to say! Remember don’t give up!! That’s the hardest part!! Happy hunting!!

              Facing off this bastard again after you finally have some strong gear is so damn satisfying

              Breaking both of his wings in the first two minutes of combat, tail following soon and at this point you are merely dealing with a cripple

                I was so close to beating him on my second try. I did so much damage but ran out of time, but honestly I dont get why everyone hates this monster. in my opinion it was really fun fighting him and I was sweating so hard.

                  I don't understand the hate towards the pseudo-wyverns family. They bring a different challenge to the game. True wyverns, like Rath and Legi, fly way too much and flash pods render them useless. The brute wyverns are too predictable, maybe except for Glavenus and Deviljho just because they are so big. Fanged wyverns are boring. And we only got second-grade Plesioth for the piscine wyverns.

                  For people that are having problems hunting pseudo-wyverns (Tigrex, Narga, and Barioth family), maybe change your strategy a bit. Treat them like a flash-invincible Rathalos, best fought in wide and open areas. You don't chase a flying Rath around, you wait for an opportunity to throw flash pods.

                  Just because pseudo-wyverns are always on the ground, doesn't mean that you should always chase them around too. Engaging a charging Tigrex? Death sentence. Bring dungs to force them out of inconvenient areas. Since they stay on the ground, you'll have such a little window to do anything, so don't get greedy. And most importantly, they're much more aggressive than their flying brethren, so let them come to you instead, dodge, counter, rinse and repeat. Staying on the aggressive at all times like when you're hunting true wyverns doesn't work here.

                    I am currently on shrieking legiana and this fight was the least fun I’ve ever had in this game, the only fun part was it ending.

                      Just fought this dude for the first time a few minutes ago, typing this as I'm stocking up all of my used potions, and decided to give heads up for our new hunters.
                      I was using a full Beotodus set because of full Earplugs (best decision of my life lol), with a maxed out Defender Dual Blades. 5 minutes in and had to swap for hammer to abuse the slopes and edges. If you can't fight it properly in flat terrains or small areas, force it out either by Dungs or lure it when it's enraged, then use environmental damage by the frozen pillars, use the slopes for your weapons sliding attacks or just wall-slam it. Just go in with Master Rank armor, still seeing other people using Gaurdian Armors so late in the game, I nearly got 2-shotted even with my boosted 700 defense armor.
                      Hope y'all stay healthy and, happy Hunting!

                        Did you ever hear about the hunter who used fire element duel blades and master mount skill to become faster and more aggressive than the beast it's self? He was spinning like a tornado on the ground and leaping off ledges and swinging from wedge beetles to mount the beast over and over until finally under a whirlwind of relentless blade slashes the Barioth lay dead?

                        Well sadly he got eaten by a deviljo while sleeping but the point is he could take down a Barioth no problem and so can you hunter. May the sapphire star guide you.

                          I FINALLY DEFEATED HIM!!
                          I first took a bow on him and lost a crap ton. But in the end I decided I would blow the dust off my ol’ long sword ( and will probably get some smack talk from some lowly Hunters who feel good about berating such an awesome weapon).
                          But I digress. I pulled out Old Faithful ( Defender Katana V ) and used the scoot-n-slash tactic and only had faint.Also I used the full MR Rathian armor. I also clutch clawed him multiple times for the slinger pods. And if you clutch claw him be sure to blast him in the face to be sure to do loads of damage. I didn’t bring a bunch of health stuff ( very foolish of me). All I took was herbs, potions, and mega potions. As for other equipment I took the gilie mantle and health booster ( all I ever use in the game). At about forty-eight minutes left, I got a little reckless and threw my shock trap on the floor and hopped for the best and miraculously captured him. This probably took me no more than five or six tries ( I had lost count). But all in all I was the victor after a long and frustrating battle. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Have a great day!

                              The real hard thing about his Assigned quest are the hosts running it: you join them to farm the monster and get some multiplayer bonus rewards, and they cart like meteors 10 minutes in the fight and pop the "Quest Failed" message, making you lose time. So, if you want to farm this guy, break what you need early in the run and then witness the "dance of (the host's) death" with your heart in peace.

                                ok this story TRUE so once i started iceborne i thought these guys are gonna be HARD its master rank right?
                                but they where not hard at all i went trough beo banbaro viper tobi night shade paul and coral puki in less than a day but this guy was just WOW so, i am a noob and i have beo armor i have a level 7 great sowrd from the original game monster hunter but i before i even got icebore i was curious so i looked up top 10 hardest monsters and it said this guy was number 5 but i beat him with all the gear i told you was noob gear was this guy supposed to be hard? huh i wander how easy it will be to slay alteron ( HA! i know how hard alteron is ive seen the videos )

                                • Hello my fellow hunters, mortals seem to be having a problem with this monster so I thought I could shed some light on some forbidden tips. This is the toughest monster in Iceborne up to this point. Partbreaker 3 is a must. Coral Pukei Pukei´s armor bits have Partbreaker on them. Blunt weapons also work really well on his wings so if you can use hammer realtively well (Or other blunt weapons) and have partbreaker 3 you should use it. (I broke his wings with a hammer in the first 5 minutes of the fight). Also GET MASTER RANK ARMOR, some people think that don´t need it but they absoulty do. Aim for is wings and tail (Don´t focus on the tail if you have a blunt weapon) because after the partbreaks he is crippled for the rest of the fight. Anyway dads yelling at me to go to sleep so good luck my fellow hunters

                                    Most annoying Monster I ever fought, he'll lunge at you multiple times while you run after him and exhaust your stamina, then whack you with his insanely long reaching Tail and probably lunge or just Ice tornado the crap out of you, escape out of your shock traps insanely fast and sometimes just bellyflop onto you after running rounds around you as if it's making fun of your slow stubby legs. With that said he's not the strongest, although he can easily stun and kill you if you have less than half your health left so constant healing is important. Died the first time I went against him with my IG, changed to Greatsword and spent 40 minutes blocking, running and a few times hitting his wings and head in so it does benefit you if you take the more careful route and don't just rush it, good luck with this annoying bastard!

                                          if you guys are doing 50 shades of white where you have to defeat a huge barioth. DO NOT PANIC! If you guys can face your fear of his size then all you need is well timed attacks and wall. For me i was using furious Rajang armor set and his damage was lower than normal barioth! believe me I tested. But he is pretty hard since his size doesn't really affect his speed so hitting him is kinda a problem. So trust me you will have an easier time fighting 50 shades of white than normal barioth.

Haha... unless?

                                                  So what I do every time I hunt a Barioth is cut off its tail. Makes everything so much easier. Doing this I’ve never killed a Barioth without breaking every part of its body. And breaking its forearms after cutting off the tail makes everything even easier. At the start though? F*cker won’t ever stop moving. Use flash-pods when it starts flying.

                                                    This fight was pretty hard when you start the fight out but it becomes easier as you progess. All i used was banbaro set, All B except the gloves (which was a A) and a fitness charm. Mantle i used was Vitality(+) and Iceproof. Decor you can use is ice res, 2 divine blessing, one vitality, blaze jewel, one destroyer, satiated/expert, steadfast and using the best fire weapon. i am also a bow user so i used anjanath flamebow 1. Just break his wings first then once you do that, he will slow down by a lot. I also use a lot of flash pods and some traps to help me out and this fight took me 34 mins with no faints. hope this helps people who are struggling x)

Everyone’s better at fighting different monsters. I trash Kushala Daora, but my brother loses almost every time. I do agree however that Barioth has a little to much HP.

                                                            took me 1.5 days to take it down. 1.Changes from hammer to bow, didnt work, my beloved dragon piercer just takes too long to charge. 2.changed to bowgun and used piercing ammo...tried about 4 times , didnt work...just bad weapon. 3.farmed 7 hours for upgraiding to rapid shooting lvl 2 piercing rownds "Nightmare's seed", almost took him down. 4.crafted stunning traps and barrels, ran away every time he enraged and went back to refill ammunition, back to beast :trap-wyvernblast-full mag-enrage-run away hit and run tactics, in the end when it crawled back to it's cave and fell asleep i've put all barrels and wyvern blasts and blew this bastard to death. Then i opened a bottle of vodka and got drunk...i'm 35 and this was terrificly satisfying for and old player like me.

                                                                This is actually a really fun fight once you learn his moveset. It does get easier as the fight goes on. Break the wings first and he's crippled the rest of the fight, and once he gets exhausted, the fight becomes a cake walk. Make sure to use the falling rocks in the cave-esque area that he goes into. I used longsword for him and getting the counters was very strange since he was so mobile but once you start baiting his body check, you can maintain the higher levels of spirit gauge real easily. Beat him second try and without nullberries (cuz i'm stupid and i forgot).

                                                                  First hunt, I ran out of time. 1min left > capture range > stunned me while he gets para'd > came out to only one tranq bomb. Absurd as a DB user but I was just dodging and weaving the first time. Decided to man up on second try and chase rather than dodge/weave and took 30mins. Still a ridiculous first fight. I was expecting Tigrex and Narga to be harder because of MHFU ptsd. Also that ice vortex spam is bs.

He’s fast, he hits hard, and he takes a pretty solid amount of punishment to put down. Someone below had pointed out that the fight gets easier as time goes on; this absolutely true - baiting his enrages with flash pods is a great way to neuter his offense once he’s exhausted. Force out his enrages and capitalize, you’ll come out on top.

                                                                        • The bad news: The fight is most difficult right at the start. The Barioth hits ridiculously hard across a wide area and moves like a cat on the freeway, making this fight an absolute nightmare for slower melee builds. Staying on the move is staying alive. The good news: As you damage him the fight gets progressively easier. His arm spurs that he uses to dig into the ice are relatively easy to break, and once they are it significantly impedes the Barioth's mobility. He can be knocked out of the air, but it takes some practice to know when you have enough time or should just dodge. Important note on capturing: his trap hitbox is really wonky, as is the detection for where his head is when you throw your tranqs. Choose your placement with care.

Everything else felt challenging but balanced and doable for the point they were introduced...I could comfortably take each of them down in under 20 minutes with my gear. Barioth is just......too damn much for a first boss. When I fought him the first time it took 47 minutes with a Flammenbeil+....the two kills I did recently for the event weapon took over 30 with an azure rathbringer. This thing has no business being as early in the game as it is, it sets an unbelievably depressing standard for the game going forward that you quickly realize isnt even true after the next few fights. I have no desire to get anywhere near it until I'm vastly overpowered and can bring it down with far less effort...as it stands it needs to lose about 1/3rd of its hp to be remotely balanced for where you fight it and even then it's probably too much. Tldr; Dont let this asshole ruin the game for you like it almost did for me...it's woefully out of place as a first major boss.

Guess it's time to grind out MR gear. Fair warning for ranged folks, he loves to jump and land on you repeatedly, then he will shoulder-side-step bash continiously.
