The Legendary Beast Information
- Conditions: HR 16 or higher
- Failure Conditions: Time expires, Faint 9 times.
- This quest becomes available once the quest A Visitor From Another World is completed.
Once you have completed A Visitor From Another World, talk to the Serious Handler and initiate this quest from the Quest Board. Upon arriving to Elder's Recess, you will be shown the introductory cutscene of the Behemoth and then you'll be able to fire an SOS flare.
This is a very challenging monster so make sure to prepare by visiting the Behemoth page. You only need to damage it until the Behemoth runs away (after summoning a rather deadly comet!)
When you return to Astera, talk to the Serious Handler to trigger a cutscene and obtain the gesture "Final Fantasy XIV Jump".
Talk to the Serious Handler again after the cutscene for a Behemoth quest: He Taketh It with His Eyes.
