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.

      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.

        THANKS JEBUS!!!
        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!

                Not enough HP and jumps too slow, It's too easy and fight ends way too fast which is not fun at all.
                His HP should be around 50k and he should be able to jump around you much more frequently, currently he is slow af

                  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.

                      What if, we added a monster from a previous title to the expansion, and instead of having the players learn it's moves so that way fighting it is fun and rewarding, we just made it ultra aggressive and have it so you have to break a part before the fight becomes fair? Haha... unless?

                        1st time against Barioth and only reading the weakness of it without reading the rest. So frustrating, keep leaping here and there, SOS only 1 people with guardian armor.
                        with 7 minutes left. Finally it ran and falls asleep. Of course i got with capture lol

                          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)

                              Fourth time fighting this monster. For everyone who says he is over powered I respectfully disagree. 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. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Have a great day!

                                Everyone is complaining these monsters have too much hp but they probably don't have master rank gear yet. I had a very nice hr set and even a simple tobi was hard to beat but as soon as I got mr armor and a mr weapon that was easy to obtain I started running through all these mr monsters like I used to in hr

                                  Bring a lance, or gun lance and this guy is a cakewalk (or charge blade with the guard up skill). I didn't even have good armor. Just wait him out in the first encounter and he exhausts himself. You can use poisoned meets on him when he retreats to his cave.

                                    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).
