Historical Information

The Behemoth first appears in the Book of Job, 40: 15-24, being described as a massive herbivorous creature that lives in swamps, with a tail that moves like a cedar tree and bones as hard as iron and brass. Several contemporary animals have been believed to have been the basis of the Behemoth legend, including the ox, the elephant, and the hippopotamus, though none fit the description perfectly.

It is said in Hebrew legend that, after the end of the world, the Behemoth will engage in a battle with the Leviathan and will kill one another. In alternate tellings of this legend, the Behemoth and the Leviathan will fight eachother, only to both be struck down by God.

A very weak NM. Seen it duoed by a ninja + paladin duo.

On most servers its dominated by RMT who C4H and warp away if they accidently claim KB instead.

Good money if you can claim though. 2-4 hides per kill.

Why is it there is always only one of these poped in game at one time yet in the opening movie we see at least 2 charging at the town. They need to make an aria where these are non nm and pop on a regular bases. But they need to make shure these dont drop items for black belt.

I'm not sure who you were watching... and i'm not saying this to brag, but I could trio Behemoth easily. A party of 6 lvl 75s is overkill... period. King Behemoth though... will require alot more due to him being so much stronger.

I watched a party of 6 level 75's tie into this. The 75 PLD tanked and took constant damage, healed by the WHM. As the battle went on, more people joined the fight until there were 15, all level 75's as far as I could tell. The battle went on for over 1/2 hour and they finally killed it and none of them died. At first, though, the Behemoth was taking little to no damage and it was a gradual weardown. The new Brady Atlas recommends a party of 6 level 70's or better. For King Behemoth, recommendation is 3 parties of level 75. The Behemoth I saw was in the middle of the bowl and did area of effect damage that got me even at the fringe of it, doing 100 pts of damage and binding my 64 BM/32 WM but it didn't happen often. I was not attacking it or part of the party that was.

Taken directly from Wikipedia.com:
note: I did not write this and take no credit for this. I only wish to inform^^


Behemoth (Hebrew בהמות Bəhēmôth, Behemot, B'hemot "Beasts; animals"; Arabic بهيموث Bahīmūth or بهموت Bahamūt) is the untranslated name of an amphibious animal mentioned in the Book of Job, 40:15. Suggestions as to his identity include a hippopotamus, a water buffalo, a crocodile, and a dinosaur.

Most probably, בהמות bəhēmôth is plural for בהמה bəhēmāh, meaning "animal" in Hebrew, this structure indicates that behemoth is the largest and most powerful animal. Behemoth is the primal unconquerable monster of the land, as Leviathan is the primal monster of the waters of the sea, for this is no mere giant hippopotamus but "He is the first [Authorized Version "chief"] of the ways of God." (Job xl:14)

Some readers see a hippopotamus also in Isaiah xxx:6 (bahamot negeb "beasts of the south").

According to midrash recording traditions, it is impossible for anyone to kill a behemoth except for the person who created it, in this case YHWH. A later Jewish haggadic tradition furthermore holds that at the banquet at the end of the world, the behemoth will be served up along with the leviathan and ziz. The Hebrew behemoth is equated with the Persian Hadhayosh, as the leviathan is with the Kar and the ziz with the Simurgh.

The text from the King James Version is as follows.

15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.

16 Lo now, his strength [is] in his loins, and his force [is] in the navel of his belly.

17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.

18 His bones [are as] strong pieces of brass; his bones [are] like bars of iron.

19 He [is] the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach [unto him].

20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.

21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.

22 The shady trees cover him [with] their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.

23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, [and] hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.

24 He taketh it with his eyes: [his] nose pierceth through snares.

Metaphorically, the name has come to be used for any extremely large or powerful creature.

The Title when you kill Behemoth is "Behemoth's Bane" and King Behemoth's title is "Behemoth Dethroner". It should be changed :)

Came here first time today. I was the camerman for my ls on Odin Server hanging around the claimers. Needless to say I came way too early lvl wise. Limit Break got the claim and I stood there like an idiot watching the fight.

After Behemoth went down to about 10% life he spammed Thunderbolt about 6 times in a row and that resulted in the tank immeditaly dying, all my Utsusemi shadows disapearing, and me recording the video on my back. Luckily I got a raise II and limped my way back to Jeuno.
