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.

Our LS was going to camp Behemoth and didn't know KBs window was open too. So there is only 5 of us. We get claim and it just happens to be KB. Well everyone died in the first 10 seconds of the fight except for me. To make a long story short we no longer had claim after that and I had to raise. >.>

I have helped kill this guy over 25 times now. He is no doubt my favorite King. It took my ls 2 hours to kill. lol Before flame, yes he goes super after 1 hour. We were fighting him for 45mins with 5 people, then for the last 15 we moved up to 6 people, A FULL PT! We got him down to 82% with alot of problems on hate control. We kitted him super for about 10 mins with a very awsome NIN tank on the Unicorn Server, Anuket! He one shotted our PLD only once! Everyone relogged, as I and the NIN kept kitting. Then someone made mistake and rejoined our Alliance, causing everyone to relog again, this time relogged also. Our NIN kitted him for almost 10 minutes SOLO. Solo kite, on Super KB. lol {fun} When we all logged back in, we formed a new alliance and thought if we timmed the NIN's forced death at the right time that we could steal KB from our own LS. lol

I did not get invite to the new alliance. Maybe things were to hecktic, idk, but I rejoined the part with the solo NIN. (Who still did not need a cure. :P) Very shortly after I joined the alliance KB did AOE Stun, then right after he started casting meteor. Since KB was Super ofcourse the Meteor 1 shotted the NIN and many other people stupidly watching. RIGHT AFTER the NIN died, I casted Bio II and started kitting.

Someone raised and cured Anuket, and he started to kite weakened again. Little did we know, when the NIN died, and I casted Bio AFTER the death it reset the super timer. We kitted for another 15minutes while our outside alliance grew to 11 members, and the NIN and I kept duoing.

I was casting thunder III the whole time trying to give constant dmg. Then I casted thunder IV, and drew hate. I got hit for 312!!!!! A 75BLM/WHM getting hit for 312 means he was no longer super! Our 75PLD got hit for 1.2k on super, how could a blm only take 300dmg? lol We quickly rejoined the alliance and quickly killed.

This is the most fun KB fight I have ever had! The 2 hour KB fight. lol I thought I would share my story for all to hear! Hope you all enjoy :P

Viva la Pain!

My Behemoth story started out with me coming just before the 2nd to 3rd window. I am a blm/whm in AbsoluteGenocide. The alliance was full when I got there so I had to wait on the sidelines and hope to get an invite, so I was just sitting there with my flag up. In the linkshell chat they said 30 sec till window, so I got ready to try and stun just for fun. 45 seconds later I saw a giant spawn right in front of me, so I quickly casted Stun. I thought it was just Behemoth, but when I looked at the name it was King Behemoth and it was also RED! I honestly almost shat my pants and then started running as fast as I could spamming, "INVITE ME" in linkshell chat. Everyone thought I was joking so it took about 30 seconds and half of my health until I was finally invited into the alliance, we kept the claim. I don't suggest claiming him on your own, but it sure is exciting :)
Overall the fight wasn't that hard, but it is extremely fun. Our strategy was just kite it while all the blm nuked it for about 25-30 minutes. He fell in about a half hour, but the drops were pretty worthless IMO. Pixie earring, behemoth hide, horn, and an Abj. was what fell, but it was well worth the time. Thx for reading!

was bored one day so i did a /search in BD and what do i see but 70 lvl 70+ ppl or /anoned ppl. i run there as fast as i can and i get there. a crapload of ppl there so it didnt spawn yet. i wait and it spawns! im thinkin, hey this is a behemoth whes its a king behemoth! im like sweets and use stoneskin+phalanx to avoid the most of Meteor. as a lvl 60 rdm/blm, meteor did 400+ dmg with stoneskin and phalanx. i dared to see how much it'd to w/o them on but i was too lazy.

Rakanishu on Unicorn.
i saw lots of ppl in the dominion so i decided to go and see. i wasnt expecting KB to spawn so i freaked out and ran away. ^^ anyways, some linkshell grabbed him and kited him around for about 30 minutes until more showed up. i went afk for like 40 minutes and when i came back, it had like 1% hp left and was surrounded by like a dozen corpses. went unclaimed and pretty much wandered around while he regenerated.
wish i coulda seen the battle but i didnt wanna die.

hahaha, if it got down to literally 1% health left, I would try and kill it by myself o_O idc that I would die, it's the chance you would get to be the one finishing him, and not split anything that drops XD

Hated LS?
# Aug 27 2005 at 3:32 AM Rating: Default
Yesterday on Bahamuth my LS FinalHeaven were fighting KB, at about 50% he went into SSJ or rage mode wich means hes kinda impossible to take down, but after 2,5hr's it look good for us, we kept using spirits within for him with 300TP 400~dam then got one shotted :P
I think all in all we lost several houndered thousands XP all in all, but we didn't really bother KB was going down. I lost about 20k myself and deleveld to 73 ; ;

Then it happend I disconnect at 5% HP and are unable to come back on, I log on today(27/08/05) and find myself dead in the dominion with 15min left, I try a few friends but noone could raise me so I HP... I check LS and see that leader is on, I ask him for the drops of KB but he tell me a JP LS called FantasticImpropuh(sp?) took KB at 4~% HP and wiped him in about a min or 2 >.> Im still not sure if they stole it or not but Im 110% sure we never gave up, so those drops are ours... and not forget the 3hr's wait in camping him AND 2hr+ fighting AND the XP lost. I've heard stories about this LS before some hate them some say its roumurs(sp) but I cant belive we didn't get to kill it =( was my 2nd time on him.

See you in game dear friends ~ Andy

Hate to be an ***, but SSJ mode was added precisely so you couldn't do zombie tactics and just keep throwing bodies at a mob in order to kill it.

Of course it was also added to prevent linkshells from holding him eternally, but it's also to make the fights more difficult.

It's just a damn shame that when they added SSJ mode that SSJ KB is still a pansy. They should have given him 100% Gravity Resist, 2X Runspeed and massive regen in SSJ mode. You're NOT supposed to be able to beat an SSJ mob. Good luck at trying to kill an SSJ Aspidochelone or Nidhogg.

sorry to hear about that. SE should make it where if a mob is less than 50% hp you get 0 exp and 0 drops. Of course if I was the last one standing I'd call for help so no one gets stuff. guess I'm an *** like that.
# Aug 16 2005 at 8:51 AM Rating: Good
Its a very good idea that SE did this because we'd have LSs try dominating the Kings by sending a few people with bots to get the claim, then work together to "hold" or "stall" the mob while everyone else gets there. I like the idea that it gets harder but the whole going unclaimed thing in a way, bothers me because it just gives others incentive to stick around in attempts to steal it and take all the credit. I don't care what SE or anyone else says... if someone beats this thing down to very little HP and someone else finishes it off and gets the goodies... its not right.

According to the update, this is one of the guys who now grows in power the longer hes been claimed. Guess what? this has been applied to all the Black Belt mobs. I'm guessing Black Belt will become that much rarer.
RE: crap
# Aug 02 2005 at 11:52 PM Rating: Decent
no it wont... its still 100% drop rate... and its after 1 hour it becomes harder... and it mob because unclaimed at any time that 1 hour counter restarts... ppl will always be able to take down the 3 black belt kings although stalling will be suicide

no it wont... its still 100% drop rate...

What he means is that it gets tougher, so then it will be killed less because its now stronger than what it used to be...

Except that it doesn't start getting stronger until about an hour after it's been engaged. All the update did was prevent people from holding KB (and other land HNMs) with a few people while waiting for the rest of the LS to come help. If you hold it like that, it'll get too strong after about an hour. Dawn on Phoenix tried this the other day. They held it with a couple people for 10 minutes, then the fight went smoothly for an hour until it was down to about 5-10%, at which point it went on a rampage.

Just my two cents here on this one. Yea this should be on the Vrtra section, but Vrtra is actualy one of the nastier customers around. The fact that it takes 50-100 people to kill him cause of the links and his summons, the fact that if he gets pissed off enough he Spike Flails for 5000 dam killing 50-100 ppl in one shot, and the fact that you have to fight him with links and summons and his sleepga etc etc for 2-3 hours and if one person pooches anything in that time 50-100 ppl are dead. All it adds up to one unhappy dragon. Some people can take him, but there is a reason there are only a very small percentage of people on any given server comparitve to the whole server population that can say they can actually kil him every week on spawn. He also retains quite the impressive hate list too. If one healer from outside the battle alliance heals the battle alliance, it spreads like a virus to all other healers in the area. This happened to us once where our tanks lost hate and it ran around and killed every healer in the room one at a time till there were no more left standing. Any way you slice him, he is a nasty customer to be sure, but it is not only him you fight, but his entire environment also like Wyrnne said.

I agree that Vrta should be left in the Vrta thread, however, you should be careful when you call people an idiot. You yourself are uninformed about Vrta. Vrta is located with a dozen or so VT undead mobs, and also summons undead while engaged.

Wipe Out
# May 03 2005 at 10:41 PM Rating: Decent
yesterday on Seraph he pops and immediatly starts off w/ a Meteor amd kills 8ppl from the claiming LS then procedes to wipe out around 100ppl total that night and i think there was 5 different LS that claimed and wiped before he was finally brought down by the LS who got the claim in the first place was a horrible day on Seraph.

Japanese bot the crap outta king HNMs. They never came to Behemoth, but on Friday when we went to fight again, JP came and all the sudden I see one use Provoke, 2 sec later, King Behemoth spawns a little to my right claimed. SE really should fix this....
# May 01 2005 at 10:20 PM Rating: Decent
is it true that the most people kill him by kiting? if so wouldnt all melee pretty much be useless if hes always running around?
thanks....just wanted to clear this up for when im high enuf sam (a loonngg time) to go hunt him
RE: kiting
# Jul 28 2005 at 1:42 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, he is fought by kiting. He is killed by melee like yourself by them gaining TP from the surrounding mobs and using Spirit's Within (VERY handy on King HNMs), with the exception of Monks using Chi Blast. Why not straight up tank him? Meteor will do about 1k to everyone who is right next to him. He'd also spam Thunderbolt from all the TP he's gaining from your attacks.
