Behemoth is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW). ベヒーモス (Behīmosu) in Japanese. It was added as a special free DLC in summer 2018 (August 2nd) for a Final Fantasy XIV collaboration event. 

 

 A powerful beast from another world. Its large horns and muscular frame defy nature. Unique strategies are required to battle it.  

Behemoth Details & Locations

Talk to the Serious Handler in Astera after defeating the main story to add the new special mission “A Visitor From Another World”. Players will go to Wildspire Wastes and follow the Cactuars. The Cactuars can be caught and are worth 85 points. This will lead the players to slay a powered up Kulu-Ya-Ku. Afterwards, players will enjoy a cutscene leading them to Elder’s Recess to undertake another Special Assignment.

Notes: Monster can  be mounted, but is immune to traps. If it lands on the player it will deal heavy damage. It will be a guaranteed giant crown. Several moves, such as the standard meteor and charybdis attacks, can be interrupted by a flash pod. Temporal mantle is recommended as many attacks are unblockable and others result in heavy chip damage, even with guard level 4. 

Polar Behemoth Event Quest
A Visitor from Eorzea (Extreme)”

  • Player must slay a Tempered Behemoth
  • Players will obtain Behemoth Ticket to forge the new Drachen/Dragoon Layered Armor.

Behemoth Combat Info

  • Deals mhw-thunder-damageThunder and fireblight Fire Element Damage, and is resistant to both
  • A Tank or Evasion Tank is absolutely essential to the run
  • Lance, IG and shield users should tank the monster: Let the tank start to get aggro first. Do not engage until the tank has enmity confirmed by the combat text.
  • Weak to mhw-dragon-damageDragonmhw-water-elemental-damageWater and mhw-ice-damage_sIce.
  • Status weak to paralysis Paralysis and Sleep (gunners should have these two elements)
  • The Horns and Tail, and claws can be broken
  • Ecliptic meteor can be avoided by using the Dragoon Jump emote given to you, count 1 second as soon as behemoth twitches from finalizing it's EM summon. Note however, that timing varies slightly depending on your distance from EM's epicenter. In general however, the above rule should provide enough leeway for you to time it right for medium distance (between 4 rolls to 10 rolls distance from epicenter)
  • Ecliptic meteor CAN be avoided via farcaster, but beware, as item usage of any kind is locked as soon as behemoth casts EM. It is possible to use a farcaster before the items lock and still be invincible as the EM hits.
  • Bring healing items to help your teammates such as Lifepowder. 3 on hand and 10 combination reserves will ensure everyone stays alive.
  • Bring Mega Barrel Bombs to place when it falls asleep.
  • The boss summons COMETS. Your team should drop them in accessible areas of the arena.
  • When the large meteor AOE comes, put the COMET between you and the middle of the arena where the large meteor will land. The floor turns red and the boss glows red as a signal.
  • When Charybdis is cast, a player will be selected with a gust of wind similar to the starting of a Kushala Tornado. Move closer to a wall if possible to ensure that the team isn't affected during combat. 
    • If you are playing with randoms and your teammates are dropping tornados everywhere, you can use a Flashpod to stop the cast.
    • Be aware that flashpods reset Enemity (aggro), so they should be used sparingly
  • If you have played FF14 before you will notice that Behemoth has distinct skills that have areas to position your team in. - For example the Thunderbolt, standing either on the side, behind or in the spaces between his head and arm are the safest places to stand. If you are his target it is better to stand in the spaces between his hand and arm or you risk wiping your team if he turns around suddenly on a teammate.
  • Similar with Thundaga, his Eruption is the same 3 directions however it is telegraphed more clearly and is not used more than once at a time.
  • Meteor can be blocked but chunks for a lot, it is better to super man dive or avoid completely.
  • The player with Enmity should move Behemoth away from any tornadoes and comet.
  • If it stumbles, everyone focuses the same weak point they focused before, repeat until broken. If it sleeps, sleep bomb and have your range special shot the barrel if no GS/Hammer is present.

Behemoth Battle

  • Phase 1- The battle will start in the cave with 2 destructible stalactites each doing about 1.7k, this will be the easiest and quickest phase if you manage to get even one of them to hit behemoth, he will only use Meteor and Charybdis in this phase.
  • Phase 2- He will run to the next zone, where the first person who enters with be met with a Charybdis cast or a meteor and most of the Enmity. in this phase he will use his skills more often and sometimes in rapid succession and his meteor will now target all hunters. he gains two new moves Thunderbolt and Comet. Thunderbolt can and usually is used 3 times in a row, but its possible to blind him and stop the triple cast. Once Comet falls you MUST make sure that at least one rock stays up to hide behind when he uses ecliptic meteor at the end of the phase or you will instantly be carted.
  • Phase 3 - He will run again and there you will be met with objects that can be used to mount without an IG (Its not confirmed but I'm almost positive they cannot shield you from ecliptic meteor then even if they manage to stay up). same as phase 2 you must make sure at least one rock is up to have any chance of surviving at the end of the phase.
  • Phase 4 - He will run one last time to the nergi nest, there here will stand waiting for you, both destructible walls are already broken down. similar to phase 2-3. you must survive yet again and this time finally kill him and carve from the remains.
  • It is worth noting that if everyone leaves the zone he is currently in he will begin to regenerate health.
  • He may flee into the zone with heat hazard, so bring cold drinks, if he does run to this zone, he may run back to his previous zone after the 3rd phase.
  • The ecliptic meteor, while not map wide, is far enough to reach all adjacent zones, you will not be able to run from the blast nor can you escape by any conventional means such as fast-traveling to camp (be it via farcaster or wingdrakes). Item usage is locked as soon as Behemoth casts ecliptic meteor, likewise anyone who are foolish enough to try and stay in camp area's tent will be booted out of the tent automatically, rendering any of these options obsolete. It is, however, possible to bypass ecliptic meteor's effect by eating in the canteen should one be close enough to a canteen table.
  • you can control how the behemoth moves while mounted, depending on which section you're clinging to. If you aren't familiar with these patterns, it's highly inadvisable to mount behemoth for prolonged periods of time (ergo infinite mount strategy) as Behemoth will continue to thrash around more erratically the longer it is mounted

  • It is highly recommended to put the Behemoth to sleep under a boulder in Phase 1. The boulder's damage will be doubled as a wake up hit akin to any other source of damage, surpassing several Mega barrel bomb worth of damage combined. Likewise, using both boulders in Phase 1 will essentially allow for a faster run overall.
  • Do not assume any of your random party members will flash to cancel Charybdis; always assume your due diligence/ responsibility of flashing a Charybdis aimed at you personally and be proactive on finding an area's edge to go to in case Behemoth's head clips through a wall thus rendering flash cancelling Charybdis impossible. Sole focus on damage dealing is neither useful nor helpful; do not be "that guy".
  • Always do a head count prior to starting a random hunt; if there is a support tank in there (e.g. barroth lance user with guard up/ guard 5, etc) then let them gain enmity. If and when the system works, this will cause behemoth to cast Charybdis on a much lesser frequency as well as ensuring Behemoth only casting meteor on said tank.

    Any IG or S&S hunters in the midst should always aim to finish mounting as soon as possible, instead of the mythical infinite mount strategy as enmity resets after a few minutes. Wasting enmity active time would only cause more sporadic Charybdis and meteors being cast on the long run. Stay on your lanes.

      Designed so poorly it has no soul, it's just a big pillar that does full-time "RandomBullshitGo" full of only annoying effects. Feels like it has been designed to be the less funny possible.

        Try as I might, it is practically impossible for non-Master-Rank players to solo this guy, even using cheats (without damage boosting). Between countering the Charybdis tornadoes with flash pods, to the nonstop attacks (with potential stunlocking) in Phase 3, the fact this dude has 2x the health of Xeno'Jiiva, and you only have 35 minutes to kill him, it's pretty damn hard without a party when you're only High-Rank.

        It was once I had decent Master-Rank gear and decorations was I able to solo this guy without cheats.

          Look up solo strats for him and Extremoth and boost them up with MR equipment.
          Might save you one or another grey hair since noobs and griefers like to jump on SOS flares.

            This monster is pure garbage, fighing it solo is nigh-impossible, it is marked as a High Rank monster, i brought rarity 12 Master Rank weapons with Dragon element (glaive) to fight it and still, after 25 mins, it only down to 50% HP. Whoever designed this dumb*** monster need to be put in jail !!!

              Best contender for worst monster of the year. But this is what you get when Capcon merge several Kushala Daora into one monster that ends up filling the entire map with tornados. Oh and you can only attack him from the front since your weapon even with purple sharpness gets bounced off his body and do no dmg casue reasons only a brain less idiot would tell.

              And everyone who later on comes to tell me to git gud. Not eveyone plays this game 12hours a days like you job less morons do.

              • I did this back in the day and it was definitely harder without MR gear. Now that my friend had started playing again, I came back to this fight with him and, maining lance since day one, I never had a problem tanking him while my friend used GS. I'll admit that isn't much in terms of praise or ire, but this thing is no longer as bad as I once remember. That being said, we duo'd the regular one in 20 mins but with his HR gear, I advised him, and he agreed that he'd need better stuff before taking on the tempered version. In the one experience we just had fighting this with my MR gear, having a bleed resist charm meant I was never ever in much danger as I could tank on a health booster or w/ temporal mantle and there is enough time in between certain attacks to heal myself so I can't realistically see us having too much problem with the tempered behemoth when we return for that fight, provided we have 1-2 randoms with us that somewhat know what they're doing.

                      Charybdis. Meteor. More Charybdis. A Few more meteors. Melee attacks. Do you want some more meteors? No? Well, take one more Charybdis instead and few more melee attacks. And now a few comets and a few thunderbolts, some more Charybdis and... oh, my... did I shatter the comets? What a shame... pardon me, what time is it? Oh, it's f**k you o' clock. Here's my parting gift: an Eclipitc Meteor for you and your friends, think you can dodge it? Then try and jump as high as possible. And there you have it: Duty Failed. Again. Until next time, hunter.

                                You have proven to be difficult, irritating, and hard to solo (also counting in the temperd version) but alas as time goes bye your fights became dull, with master rank equipment your damage is laughable, and you soon became forgotten. we appreciate the monster and the crossover game devs but when Iceborne came out the behemoth is no more.... but he will forever be....in my heart.. the hardest quest in world.

                                  Question: I hear this guy's really hard/ impossible to solo, but how does he stack up against other monsters? Is it just the bad attacks? Health? Idk it just seems weird to have one that you NEED a team to beat when the rest of the game can be played solo pretty easily.

                                    If you guys are high rank and trying to finish him off in extreme version than I feel your pain. BUT if your a master rank and try to do it again well you would be surprised. He doesn't do alot of damage when your master rank even in Eorzea (extreme)!

                                      tried this solo with mr gear. casts eclipse meteor. only meteorite piece is surrounded by a f*king twister... instantly killed... with a rocksteady mantle behemoth attacks me with some spell: I get "instakilled" (not really since if I didn't have rocksteady on I would have been knocked back and propably would have survived). i had about 1200 armor and still that one spell killed me faster than I could react... once again deal damage to behemoth: behemoth kastst eclipse again... Only F*king piece of meteor is too far a way to reach since we are in a giant f*king room... F*king piece of **** rng wether I survive or fail a mission...

                                        Enmity: Attacking the Behemoth's head is the main way to gain Enmity (aggro). If you're not comfortable/able to tank Behemoth, try to avoid attacking the head so you don't gain Enmity. You usually need to deal several hundred damage to the head to gain Enmity.
                                        The other way to gain Enmity is to be caught by the Behemoth's grab attack (the throw that inflicts bleed), being hit grants Enmity to the victim.
                                        Enmity causes the Behemoth to stop casting Charybdis entirely, and his attention will be squarely focused on whoever has Enmity. If you have a stationary tank with Guard/GuardUp who has Enmity, they can reduce the Behemoth's mobility hugely as he will not charge around as much if whoever has Enmity is within melee range. This will reduce the amount of movement required by your DPS party members, allowing them to focus more on actually dealing damage. The removal of Charybdis is a huge factor, as this means your group no longer needs to focus on Flash Pods, or ducking out to drop tornados around the edges of the arena.
                                        The Behemoth is still dangerous to others whilst someone has Enmity, as he can still use AoE attacks like his spin, ground explosion, Thunder, and Meteor, so your other party members aren't entirely out of danger and will still need to be vigilant.
                                        Stunning the Behemoth with a Flash Pod will reset Enmity. If someone gains Emnity and they cannot handle the Behemoth's attention being focused on them, Flashing the Behemoth will get them out of danger.
                                        Enmity will naturally drop after 1~2 minutes if whoever has Enmity does not attack the head again. You can slightly increase how long Enmity lasts by continuing to attack the head whilst you already have Enmity.

                                          I go against this solo with mr gear... It casts cataclystm... only F*ing rock is inside a twister: I die... I have rocksteady on:behemoth casts a spell that kills me at max hp before I can react... I had around 1200 armor (I propably would have survived had I not had rocksteady on and if I had been knocked back by the attack). deal more damage to behemoth: behemoth casts cataclysm... only F*ing rock is too far to reach because we in a big room: I die and lose the match... thx... wether I survive or get careted is just rnd if the only way to survive a cataclysm just happens to be inside a stupid twister. from what I had heard I thought behemoth would only cast cataclysm when it dies but I guess I can't win unless I get extremely lucky lucky...

                                            This guy is optional. He’s no longer the defining meta. The Final Fantasy theme has FINALLY (pun not intended) left Astera. I can finally pretend like this guy doesn’t even exist. I can ignore him now. I’m not in any squad so I wasn’t able to ever beat him anyway. I can breathe a sigh of relieve because I’ve never enjoyed fighting this guy, and now I don’t have to anymore. And to be honest, after so many f*cking hours of getting back to Astera and having to listen to that despicable FF crossover music I never knew how much I actually like the normal Astera theme. I would’ve paid full price just to get rid of that goddamn FF theme. I can be happy that Monster Hunter is once again Monster Hunter. And lets keep it that way, alright Capcom?

                                                In real life mythology, the name Behemoth is actually the name that belongs to The Beast. Often paired with the number 666. Behemoth is just one of many names that belong to a single being, best known as Satan, or the Devil. The fact that Square Enix based a monster on the literal Devil means that its not a pushover. But where you can become a god in a FF game doesn’t mean that Behemoth will be as easy in another game. Case in point, that one monster that killed all of us so many times it feels as if we were already in hell to begin with. That initial stare that he gives you when he’s chomping on best boi is just pure evil. He looks like he’s actually intelligent, and if you don’t stop him he will destroy everything. A monster based on the Devil himself, its so outlandish but it really works.

                                                          If you don't have enough behemoth manes/behemoth bones, just go solo and have your palico with plunderblade and just whistle for plunderblade/palarang until you get them, the other resources like shearclaws and tails have to be obtained from actually fighting him till the parts break, as for the horn, if you need them, go the the melder with gold wyverian print (just do limited bounties that award it) and exchange it for the horns you need, and the crystals are rewarded from the fight afterwards, and can't be farmed via plunderblade.

                                                            Unfortunately he is one of the toughest fights in the game and all you get is a very powerful high rank insect glaive set that is garbage the moment you enter iceborn with only half of the armor all the masterrank sets offer....... so sad. You will have no issue to fight the first monsters with the set however during the high crit buff leading to solid 100+ damage hits on the weakspots even with the rather weak dragon element attacks (MR Enemys are quite resistant to that element) So you can choose between enough defense to survive their attacks or the buffs that actually will make combat easier. I really hope for an armor update in the future.

                                                                Ok can someone explain to me why I keep failing He Taketh with his Eye? He doesn't kill me, he just brings down the meteor and then Duty Failed. Is there a reason he casts it and I have to kill him beforehand?

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

I've literally killed every other arch tempered elder dragon in the game before I got this monstrosity downed. I soloed him in like 29 minutes and then an hour later that night I joined a party of 3 and killed him in under 17 minutes. So much easier when you don't have his aggro 24/7 and when a sns player is flashing him. My hub music is finally back to normal quick tip, sleep him in phase 1 under the boulders so you can instantly pull a quick 6k dmg on him, speeds up the fight by so much to the point where you can actually skip most of phase 2. I stupidly didn't use this method in my run which is why I had only 6 minutes left before the quest failed

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

Refusing to flash or bait Charybdis, refusing to bait Behemoth AWAY from Comets, actually hiding behind Comets thinking they will block tackles, refusing to use life powders, refusing to use mantles (this one REALLY doesn't make sense), and even attacking the damn thing while he's casting EM. I can't even with this.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

I murdered the special assignment and optional quest with a support build and some good randos, one time was me + a cluster bomber, and the other was me + IG, HH support, and I think an LS dps. Did the mounting strat (stay mounted, don't attack and just wait it out to let allies wail on behe), flashed any charybdis, and pretty much heal-tanked anything with Speed Eating 3, Wide Range 5 mega potions. My build was Kjarr Slicer "Dragon" (this can be any SnS really, it doesn't matter a whole lot.) with all Empress Beta except for the pants which were Alpha, and my charm was the Mushroom Charm II. Jewels were 3x Gobbler, 3x Steadfast, 1x Maintenance, 1x Vitality, 1x Jumping, 1x Fire Res, and 1x Friendship. I simply spammed the mounting attack the whole fight, while occasionally providing buffs and heals when needed. Items were Blue Mushrooms, Toadstools, Nitroshrooms, Parashrooms, Demon Powder, Hardshell Powder, Might Seeds, Adamant Seeds, Flash Pods, and Flashbugs, along with Potions, Mega Potions, and Max Potions. (don't forget powercharm/talon and armorcharm/talon!)

For anyone else, my build is Empress Shell "Styx" with Breaker Charm 2, and Vitality/Temporal Mantles. Armor is Dragonking a, Kaiser B, Zorah a, Uragaan B, and Kirin B. Gems are 2x Attack, 2x Bombadier, and 3x Steadfast. This nets you 3x Stun Resist, 3x Ammo Up, 3x Partbreaker, 3x Bombardier, 2x Attack Boost, 2x Weakness Exploit, 2x Special Ammo Boost, and Spare Shot. Sleep him with Sleep 2 Ammo, and make some on the fly for every sleep. Needed materials are Sleep Herbs, Catalysts, Bitterbugs, and Honey (latter two are for more Catalysts for more sleep 2). Sleep Behe, and then place 3 of your Wyvernblast and 2 Mega Barrel Bombs (craft more on the go with Gunpowder, Large Barrels, Large Barrel Bombs, and Devil's Blight. This should get you a total of 9 bombs.) Shoot his LEFT foot (your right if you're facing him) and repeat. At most you should need to bomb 4 times, but I got it down to 3 every now and then. Don't bother with the falling boulders. They're not going to hit his paw AFAIK.

Like wtf, let it go capcom its not 2007 anymore! Nobody considers raths "iconic" these days. Should've put Jho or even Nergigante for the x-over bonus points in it.

I mean, look at the numbers yourself: Bow is the safest choice if you dont wanna spend too much time with it. I mean that goes for most hunts but it especially counts for this one.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

I kind of have an idea what it feels like to be immortal now, seeing generation after generation of Hunters run to their dooms while I alone live, burdened by dueling emotions of survivor's guilt and seething rage. Please humanity, stop sucking at this fight and let me finish this goddamn quest.

Is it more important for Extremoth? I feel like his target would just die.

I play PS4 and I don’t pay for PS Plus, so I can’t exactly co-op his a$$. I can barely make it through the second stage. I’m only trying to beat him to get rid of the final fantasy music in the hub. It got old pretty fast. But beating this unsightly beast has been a b*tch.

It took me two months to get a kill on him and when I finally did I had to hide in the tent to avoid the ecliptic, and it worked in October. The moron whose quest I joined did not have the ER northwestern camp unlocked so when I got carted in stage 4, two comets down, I was halfway across the damn map and had no time to run back. Staying in the tent avoided the meteor. But I was too far away to get back in time to carve before the timer ran out

                                                                                                                • These are a few (extremely opinionated) things that I've found to be true through all my times running/dying to Behemoth (and Ex. Behemoth): - Wait until most of the party is loaded before starting the fight. Behemoth is a marathon hunt, not a dps ~solo supastar~ sprint. Solo starts end in carts (assuming you are, in fact, not doing the hunt solo. Whatever deity you believe in be with you in that case). - Along with the previous statement: Behemoth does not care about your Hunter Rank or how pro your crit build is. I will take a low HR player who knows how to be a team player any day of the week over a solo-only person. That being said, I don’t recommend this hunt to anyone below HR 70. - Always grab the EZ Max Potion at the storage box at camp when you load in. It's a free get-out-of-jail card, why would you not take advantage of it?! (But don’t be that guy who grabs ALL OF THEM. You know who you are.) - I am seriously jaded against Bows, Longswords, and Dual Blades for hunting Behemoth. I have very rarely had any successful runs with people using those weapons. To each their own, but I strongly suggest using a different weapon for this monster. - IG players are in a tricky spot with this fight. On one hand, mounting and keeping Behemoth busy while everyone else dps spams him is great. On the other hand, you are squishy and may get one-hit at the exact moment when there is nothing you could do to avoid it. Play conservatively in this quest. - Lances and Gun Lances are both credits to team. Get enmity -> raise shield and pray. Be aware, though, that during Ex Behemoth you will need to help with DPS in the third area. GL tanks have the upper hand in applying additional DPS with shelling, but my experiences have shown that regular Lances tend to get enmity quicker. - If you can play support (or would like to learn how), this is the quest to do it on. Everyone will love you after a successful run. And if you aren't successful, blame the idiot affinity katana weeaboo and move on. - HBGs: if you’re cluster bombing, aim for areas where your clusters won’t knock any DPS or tanks off their feet. You can be the cause of a full wipe if you’re not watching where you’re clusterf***ing. - Tanks: above all else, you MUST be able to hold your ground once you get enmity. Running around the arena is a no-go since the rest of your team will need to keep up with Behemoth moving. I’ve seen good tanks hold their ground in the middle of each area well, but I prefer backing myself into a wall and just letting Big Puppy whale away at me. And as an added bonus, some of Behemoth’s attacks during a wall tank will go right over your head into the wall. - It can't be said enough times: GET BEHEMOTH AWAY FROM COMETS ONCE THEY COME DOWN. Do NOT tank next to them. Do NOT stand next to them. Always know where they are, always know how to get to them, but NEVER give Behemoth an easy chance to destroy them. - The FFXIV jump emote can be used to avoid Ecliptic meteor...but don’t be that guy who doesn’t make an attempt to get to a safe comet just because you have the emote. - Farcaster is your friend. Have it in your items and on your radial menu. There is absolutely no shame in GTFOing when you’re low health. - For EX Behemoth, you can run to a neighboring area to avoid Ecliptic Meteor (unlike regular Behemoth). Use this technique as a last resort, but before trying to do the Jump emote. - ALWAYS restock after each segment EVEN IF YOU DON’T NEED TO. This goes along with being a team player: you should engage the next part of his fight with EVERYONE ready. - If you’re having trouble learning Behemoth’s movesets and tells, go farm Nergigante for a bit. The two are so alike that I really just consider Behemoth to be a skinned, steroid-cranked Nerg.

Why the hell is false information being spread? Not only is t here no Behemoth, there was no colab event yet. Hell, Devil freaking joe just recently got released

Then just hold on while your party beats it down. Works best when another person has the wide range skill to heal your stamina.

Now I'm not a FF (too much drama) so my opinion is solely based on my MH experience. I've easily played collectively over 2k hours of MHW, 3U, and 4U and this hunt is unlike any other. I think the issue that a lot of people are having is with the role system. That is, that people are under utilizing being a healer, tank, etc. Everyone seems to want to make this a dps fest, which is no ones fault because that's all the game has been up to this point. My point I'm trying to make it that this fight doesn't break the "you can use anything you want rule" because you can use whatever you want, but if the thing you like is good for tanking or healing you should probably do just that. Honestly, taking up a healer role is thrilling because it cuts down on mat usage for your party and makes it harder for your group to fail. If you're a tank you don't have time to heal leaving it up to your healer. Heck just taking up one of these roles can lead to victory (excluding tempered behemoth).
