King Behemoth Special Attacks

  • Meteor: Strong AoE non-elemental Spell. (Circle of effect originates from spell target.)

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.

Drops Wrong

We killed this guy today on Titan. Was a fun fight. Our first of the 3 kings. We had never actually killed a normal behemoth before.

Anyway the Abjuractions listed are wrong. They are:
Crimson Mask
Adaman Legs
Koenig Legs

claim was juggled, stolen, lost, reclaimed and all today on alexander, until everyone wiped but a lone black mage. who finished off the remaining 1%, and gave the tongue (only notable drop) to the people who deserved it most.

Defiance got the claim after the first party to claim wiped and stopped. it was stolen from defiance, however they reclaimed. it was stolen again i believe, but in the end the blm did the trick.

Kinb B. pops on the Gaurda sever tonight and 2 HNMLS where fighting over the claim for it because the one that got pull wipped and the other got claim afterwards, but then the other HNMLS recovered and got claim back.

OK, but the best part was when KB went unclaimed and a BLM that wasn't apart of any HNMLS stuns it and then calls for help!!!!!!!!

KB went for 1hr+ running around and killing anyone with hate. No one was gonna touch it because they wanted to claim it once it finally went off unclaimed. Finally a few of the HNMLS aggreed to just kill it beacuse it could go all night. King B went from full to nothing in 5 mins with the amount of people there.

King Behemoth was a fun fight the one and only time I got to fight him. One his meteor isn't all its cracked up to be...it's not as devastating even with a person without blink | stoneskin, etc.

It doesn't help though....
The most meteor does is around 250 - 600 hp thats if he doesn't cast back to back which he did a couple of times. Also how much damage you take from meteor depends on how close your are to KB when he does it. The closer you are the more damage, and vice versa.

I dont if this has been stated already but I didn't see anything stated about KB's meteor attack and it's potentcy.

Killed him in about 2 hrs and 30 minutes...
When fighting him it's not necessary but good to have at least 30 people to kill him from lvl.60 - 75. With a party solely of whms accompanied by 2 rdms for refresh purposes. Makes raising and healing much more efficient...

His AOE stun lasts about a minute or two.
Kiting his *** is always fun...

Good luck. Hopefully this helps whoever is camping him...

once i was in HNMLS as 54whm lol, but whenever i helped them camp behemoth, we actually got claim 2 time while i was in it before it disbanded, but both of them were KB with like 10 person alliance, of lv60-75 and i bet u can guess what happens next XD lol
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 11 2005 at 9:00 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I dont really believe Vrtra is the hardest mob. I just think it's the hardest battling him because he spawns in a room FILLED with aggressive monsters that a level 70+ party would normally EXP off of.

Actually, hes right though. Thats the main reason Vrtra is hard because the room is filled with lvl 80 mobs.

Just wondering, is this like, the strongest mob in the game? Or at least one of them?
RE: strong

If you wanted to know why he doesn't spawn much it is because he is too busy cleaning my mog house.


When King Behe is off duty the Shadow Lord comes by to fill in for him.

Ya this is possible to do by just going into the game file and changing the moogle picture. I believe it is in folder 3... anyways just so you guys know only SOME monsters work sometimes the game will just boot you off till you change it. Also if you try to change your Wyvern to a full size one the game will detect that extreamly quickly and boot you off. Gl ^^
Vrtra is better

Just run up as a bst and use Gauge, it will tell you whether you can charm them or not. Of course by then you'll be in range and die for sure... but at least we'll know :D

Want to see meteor?

That's a picture of King Behemoth doing meteor. The image size and brightness suck cuz I had to use the in game screenshot instead of a program but I fixed it enough that you can see KB and his meteor. Now if you don't know the range this is, imagine having clipping on full and the entire area around you that you can see is able to be hit with Meteor. That's about the size of his AoE and let me tell you, it can hurt. I got hit 2 or 3 times for about 700 damage a piece as my 61 samurai. Also he has a big AoE Bind that is a whole lot of fun. I wasn't in the party I was just an observer.

Me and a friend went into Behemoth's Dominion a few days back to see if we would be fortunate enough to get even a glimpse of Behemoth. No show.

As soon as I logged in yesterday, I checked the area and sure enough, there were about 30 level 75s there. Being in Jeuno at the time, I try and get there as fast as I can. When I finally do arrive, I see King Behemoth lying dead on the ground! Only just managed to get a screenshot (with my menus and stuff on, not pleased) before it disappeared.

There were only 33 people in the area, counting me, so these guys must be used to killing King Behemoth. From their speech afterwards, a lot of them spoke English. I'm pleased I got to see it - the King no less - but I only wish I'd been that little bit faster.

So to let people on Garuda know - I saw it dead at 4:15pm GMT, Sunday. Say a couple of hours before that, there's the time you want to be waiting for it. Good luck fellow Behemoth-watchers!

Just wondering, how do 30+ people fight the same monster? An alliance can only have up to 18 unless they've changed that.

If you're cycling people in and out, isn't that unfair to the people that aren't in it when the monster finally goes down? I know if I went to fight one of these I damn well would went to have a pick of the loot after contributing to the battle.

How do you handle such things?

It's usually 1 LS that does it. All members of that LS that were there get a split of the loot whatever it might be. You just have to trust your LS mates.
