        You should put a recommendation on what weapon to use... I recommend the hammer, it kicks this things ass, especially on the arms.

            No matter how many times I kill Barroth it does NOT drop the Ridge, and I need this item for crafting. Is it my level or something? I didn't want to proceed with the game until I got a stronger weapon, for which I need Barroth parts and the RIDGE! Why am I not getting it. I've kill 7 barroth so far! Starting to feel kinda bad about it.
            And for the record, they do NOT attack when you get close. At least they dont attack me. So long as I don't hit them, Barroth are peaceful creatures and I love them. I just need this freaking item.

              I suggest the Magda Floga (Hammer). You miss out on the tail sever but make up for it by the head ridge bashed off. So in multiplayer bring a friend with sever.

                Weaknesses are the wrong way around according to the image. He is resistant to fire when covered in mud, and weak when he is not.
