Barnos Details & Locations


Barnos Combat Info

  • Barnos' are the Wingdrakes of the Elder's Recess, so you're able to cause them to fly down if you hit them with any type of slinger ammo, making it possible for blademasters to attack them. It's recommended to use any Gunner build to farm these as you don't have to rely on slinger ammo to do damage.
  • Barnos will occasionally spit on you from in the air, causing Defense Down.
  • Unlike some other Wingdrakes these cannot be hooked onto to fly to random places if you are in combat with them, however if you manage to sneak up to them and keeping your non-combat status you'll be able to hook onto them. If you're desperate equip your Ghillie Mantle to approach and use them as a transport.

      Most annoying small monster out there. Love to interrupt EVERY combo yout try. Also like knocking you out of clutch claw.

        this is probably a weird thing to say but barnos are the most forgettable windrakes and the only reason its actually known by the community is that you venture into the elders recess so often

          Should be added that they'll chase you to the ends of the earth if aggro'd. Seriously, I always have to kill them during hunts because they just don't go away if in combat.

            These are annoying, like whenever I fight the objective these dudes just swoop in and let’s the target escape! I had to use a dam bow to kill them

              While they do little damage, their swooping attack is highly annoying. At least they don't chain swoop you like the Shamos with their jump attacks.
