  • Grants title: Behemoth's Bane

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.

Ok. I think the only job that would be able to solo this would be RDM. I did get super lucky after maintenance today and duo'd it with a RDM friend though. The fight took about an hour. Behemoth will hit very fast without Slow on it, and he can double attack and triple attack. Wild Horn and Thunderbolt were the worst attacks because Wild Horn could do 200+ damage and Thunderbolt would stun me. Drop was only Thundercloud and Behemoth Hide -_-

deoderize and sneak and i went to the end of the dominion. right there was the King Behemoth. i got about 20 snapshots of it, it saw me then used meteor
for 3000 damage. then a whm came up to raise me and he got killed right away.

very common reason Behemoth is soloable is because hes a normal NM. King Behemoth is however a HNM thats how people can manage to solo this one and not the other. and a PLD/NIN with all that gear is possiable to kill behemoth solo keeping a ton of shehei and backup potions and ethers he shouldnt have that much trouble if hes a skilled enough player.

Incorrect.

Behemoth is an HNM, King Behemoth is the king version of that HNM (like Adamantoise > Aspidochelone and Fafnir > Nidhogg). Try to actually know what the hell you're talking about next time instead of sounding a complete moron.

Ok I just bought a stack of silence, invisible, and deodorizers and was wondering when this dude spawns. I made it to the domain and where he should be but I see nothing. Is that Cermet Headstone for anything? If I had to guess its probably for the king behemoth. Anyways I hope I see him, and like you DarknessAvenger I just went to get a good screenshot :). And I am a 25War/15Mnk soon to be 24War probably after I see the behemoth.

As i can recal, Killing Behemoth gives you the title "Behemoth's Bane" Killing King Behemoth grats the title "Behemoth Dethroner". Might want to fix that.

And you my friend are wrong. Mithrankittycat on Ragnarok has solo'd him. Vulcan on Midgardsormr has held him for hours with his back turned to him blink tanking him without getting hit once. If he were to actually face it and fight it, he could easily solo.

I call Bull$#^t. JP or not to have all that gear is insane. Most 75 PLD, JP or NOT, are lucky to have koenig MUCH LESS Kaiser, which requires 100+ Goldsmithing on full moons AND GET UBER LUCKY to get the Cursed Items-1 THEN consider how rare of a from each Abjuration is. THEN consider THE AMOUNT OF TIME AND EFFORT it would take to get the excalibur. EVEN IF this guy started playing JP day one and had his own LS to back him on it... There is no way that guy had that much uber grears. I'd beleive excalibur and I'd believe Full Koenig--maybe even Kaiser. But all of that is rediculous.

BUT to play along with your fantasy world, it wouldn't matter if he had 2 STR 1ATK or 99STR 999ATK, Knights of Round is a W/s that @300% does Damage Equal to current HP which WITH full kaiser would push around 1500-1800 Depending on race and other gear. (Knights of Round is a WS similar to Spirits Within) But with /nin and a kraken, that PLD could easily keep HP high and spam Knights of Round for a rather fast solo.

Only way I would believe that PLD exits is if i saw a pic.

It's very possible for someone to have all that. Sagaxxxx on Diabolos has gil in excess of 600 million. Simply because you can't fathom someone having lots of gil/success does'nt mean that it is impossible.

To state something that I've seen and do know, some JP Linkshells (unlike some, not all NA) strive to help all their members and also share items between their members by mutual consent.

I've joined JP parties and asked people (I use a JP client)how they managed to get such items at a low level. EG, Rank2 NIN having a Scorpion Harness doesn't make sense. It could be that he changed nations, but anyways, just pointing this out.

Granted some of this stuff is R/ex, I would be envious of him receiving all that too, if I had seen it.

He's probably farming elementals. Not sure the difference between the King and the standard version, suffice to say though that if the normal one is anyway near as good as the king then a full party would get owned. Watched the king get taken down over 2 hours by a full alliance of lvl 75's, that dont even include the full set of RDM and WHM backup they had healing, raising, refreshing etc. That was a special battle.

But to answer your question i would have to say a resounding..... NO, never, not a chance, he'll die and quickly.

A 75RNG/37NIN with very good equip and a mage side kick could probably duo a normal Behemoth. The King Behemoth is like the +1 form and takes 18 people or more to kill. He's a lottery pop off of behemoths. Behemoths are a one day spawn and King Behemoth is about a 7 day spawn.

The thing is, although utsusemi would absorb the damage, he has an AoE that stuns. This could be deadly without someone healing. And no, Behemoths do not have meteor.

EDIT: a PLD, even with the best weapons, wouldn't do enough damage to kill this before he ran out of mp.

There's a new 99 kindred seal BCNM that allows for 18 people where you fight a Behemoth. It's pretty much a watered down version of King Behemoth. I believe its a lvl 70 lvl cap? That kinda kills blink tanking it with sub ninja.

All the Kindred Seals are no-cap battles. They're called BCNM70s, but the name is misleading. Should be called BCNM-- or something to that effect.

Solo huh
# Jul 05 2004 at 4:52 PM Rating: Default
Can you solo Behemoth? yes you can, but the only problem is CLAIMING HIM! you have around 3-4 ls's there. It is very difficult to solo him if you dont have him claimed. Thats why not many people try to solo him. And then the question is, did King Behemoth spawn with the regular Behemoth. You dont want to claim King B, or you are dead.

I was healing at that spot where he spawns. He seemed to want to spawn at that moment because the next thing I knew I couldn't even see myself, I ran for my life but still died. That thing is damn fast.

Its really sad that I was sitting there in that very spot healing when he appeared, I almost pissed myself as I saw my Mithra being covered. I didn't happen to take a picture before I ran for my life.

21 - 24 hours from last kill.

Best way to find him, since the area rarely has anyone in it most of the time, is to keep doing a search in the area. If you see a lot of anon players or High level guys you know he's about to spawn, or has spawned. The King Behemoth takes about an hour or more to kill. The regular Behemoth takes a little less time. So if you see those high level/anon players there, chances are good you will get a chance to see it.

But...

Usually there are multiple groups trying to get thier chance to fight. And if this is the case, you might not get a chance to get it to hit you, because it generally pops up on your screen claimed.

In the event of a King Behemoth, it will pop up on your screen claimed and before you know it, the entire area is suddenly filled with dead players... So one knows exactly when, or what will spawn in the area, so no one bothers to put up protect and shell before the fight...

I can tell you this: I have only seen the King, twice. Once as a lvl 27ish thief, it did 600 damage to me with a regular hit, and again as a lvl 45 Thief where it Horn thrusted me for almost the exact same damage. Then cast Meteor on me, I deleveled...

I was deleveled and somone asked my why somone sow low was up here trying to fight the Behemoth, especially being so close to my level as to be in danger of a level down. My response: "I was lvl 75, until it hit me. Hit me so damn hard I am 44 now!"

...they believed me.

riiiiiiiiight...

I don't think there is anything to charm up there. Maybe bats?

Bat vs. Behemoth?! I think I know who would win.... If you go that route the other people waiting the 6 hours it woud take to kill him with just bats, might get sick of you and go kill your amunition, and you might be a little screwed.

Amusing post though, I know you were kidding, for making me laugh I rate you up.
