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 Warming decorations are recommended for this fight.
  • Hunters should try to stay in close range when fighting this beast, 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.
  • Barioth is weak to mhw-fire-damageFire and mhw-thunder-damageThunder, and is resistant to Ice andmhw-water-elemental-damage Water.
  • Inflictsmhw-ice-damage_sIce damage andiceblight-status-effect-mhw_sIceblight.
  • Kinsect Extract:
    • Red: Head
    • Orange: Rear legs / underbelly
    • 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 of, he is really weak, taking long pauses after attacks and not even his ice breath will work.
  • We recommend that hunters bring flash pods and flash bugs, to prevent this wyvern from pinning you down as you're healing, sharpening, or drinking various types of drugs.
  • Partbreaker 3 is good as Barioths wings and especially the fangs can be very hard to break

      Had to farm MR Anjanath over and over to make a Fire Great Sword just to kill this murder weapon on legs. First time I ran out of time, smh

        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.

          He is not as bad as I feared. I used a Kadachi-Soul 1 Defense Jewel 4 and Defense charm 3. Vitality Mantle+ Took me about 40mins. After a while he gets tired and is easy to strike. Love this game. <3 <3 <3

            When I started iceborne finally earlier this week I was immediately floored by how useless my high rank gear felt....even against Banbaro and Beotodus I felt like a joke...and then I get to this guy and it's an almost hour long uphill climb to bring the bastard my head all I can think is that this whole DLC is a mess of bloated health pools and bull*****Well I just got done with quest to take down Fulgur Anjanath.....and after thoroughly enjoying every fight between Barioth and now I can confidently say he has no business being the first major boss. 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 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's woefully out of place as a first major boss.

              The pseudo wyverns in general are all too fast whilst dealing too much damage. MHW was going for a more logical, scientific approach but nothing about the pseudo wyvern is normal. It's absurd.

                Welp, first new monster that I have fainted on in Iceborne. Barely defeated him with gamma armor and a taroth weapon. 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.

                  Totally over the top, huge health, ridiculous damage and mobility.. they should never have put him so early in the story..he should be the final boss or something, the tempered version is absurd :)

                    I'd rather fight 10 gold rathians than one of this son of a *****. So much leaping around, had to trap spam him just to hit him with a melee weapon.

                            lol his health is not that bad people... If you want to complain about something try the tempered version. It does stupid damage, I have 1000 defense and he can cart me in 2 hits.
