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 (see Leviathan Prime) 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.

My assault static defeated Behemoth on floor 20 and dropped Goliard Clogs which went to our lucky RDM Vaahrem.

So far we are 1/4 on drops from floor 20 NMs. Fafnir is no doubt the toughess of the 3 on this floor.
