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.

I went to camp Behemoth, waited about 30mins and he poped only it was King Behemoth.

Big HNM ls got him know as Quickshot and well they killed away. I stayed to watch him and the fight seemed to be going good, a few ppl dyin here and there but thoese are bistanders for you :p

He did Meteo a few times and i got hit and each time put me in yellow health. Got a few pics of him and was pretty neat i guess. He was down to like 1/4 health and then tons of ppl started to die, he spammed meteo a lot more and pppl were dying all over. Then i was getting some ppl raise when i was about to leave and i was far enough from him he did like super meteo and i died :( got a raise.

I saw he was going to die in like 5 mins but then it went to hell, someone stole KB i think, and it killed everyone, Quickshot lost him, they might have got him back i dont know it was kinda confusing but anyways they never killed him cuz KB killed everyone that was there just about.

Then he regained all his health, tons of shouts going around about ppl being thfs for taking him and so on, i loged after that. He was killed but i dont know much

PS. The ls that claimed him at first was full of super ppl, all 75 and they have a REP but still not powerful enough to take the geat KB

I've always wanted to see him, so I asked a LS buddy if he would take me, he agreed. So yesterday I get a tell saying that he is gonna pop soon. I switch to a low lvl job that was in now danger of de-lvling (23 RDM) and head up there. Everybody was wondering why I was up there, and telling me that I would die. I didnt care. I just wanted to see him. So he finally pops, and I start taking photos like mad. I think I lasted about 2 minutes and died. It was fun though, and I some pretty good pics. I can't wait to fight him one day.

So I was bored today and I was heading up to Qufim to do a supply quest from Bastok (it's really rare that Bastok owns something other than Gustaberg on Ramuh). So while in Qufim I decide to check the search for if anyone is in Behemoth's Dominion. There were 35 people 70+ in the Dominion all in pt's.

So, I tell my ls that I'm heading up there to see if Behemoth is there... To make a long stroy short... 3 ls members (me(RDM37) a WAR40 and a BLM32) head up there. There are alot of people waiting around in the Spawn area. After about an hour the KING spawns!! One of the alliances got it and the others left, but a few stayed behind to help with tractor and raising. We stayed ther for the whole fight, about 40 mins maybe.

My pt, the 3 of us, just stayed around to watch and take pics. We ended up dying 2 times each, both times from Meteor, over 1k dmg O_O.

Well, anyway it was pretty cool, and I took a total of 40 pics in there.

I dunno...with the moghancement I lose like 1-1.5k exp? Sometimes you need to sacrifice exp if it saves mp and helps the alliance get up quicker. I take raise Is all the time in Dynamis...
# Jan 25 2005 at 3:47 PM Rating: Default
At level 75 if you HP you lose 4400 exp with no Moghancement.

With raise 1 at 75, and no moghancement you'd lose around 3080 exp.

With raise 2 at 75, and no moghancement you'd lose around 1760 exp.

With raise 3 at 75, and no moghancement you'd lose around 440 exp.

These are just rough calculations to give you an Idea...

Edit- /hurray for ratedowns! Sorry if I **** you guys off, just how it goes I suppose.

Not true, From a certain point on, XP loss is capped at 2800 (from homepoint).

R1 is about 2k loss
R2 is about 600
R3 is about 240

King Behemoth picture

I'll try to keep this pic up, but maybe have to get rid of it. All the information on KB has been posted pretty much. Like most other super HNMs, you need to kite this guy around. SMN works great, Monk's Chi Blast is good, Spiritin Within is good. Still takes a while.

All HNM's are 21-24 hour pops. For some HNM's theres a "super" version of the HNM, i.e. Behemoth - King Behemoth, Fafnir - Nidhogg, Adamantoise - Aspidochelone to name a few. For these versions it seems to happen once or twice a week. Hope this helps some.

actually, There is no super version of Fafnir/Nidhogg, they are two completely differant NM's

Too Hard

This NM is too hard to kill, I leveld all the way up to 55 and its still a no go, and im a Paladin for god sakes i have cure freaken' 3 and i sub Samurai for the TP and i still CANT beat it

RE: Too Hard
# Dec 27 2004 at 4:34 PM Rating: Decent
FOrget alliance, 50 people at Level 55 couldn't even touch this thing. You need a full alliance and reserves of all Level 75 to stand much of a chance. (Maybe 70-75, but still, gotta AT LEAST have that 7 in front heh.)

you may not know this, but this NM is lvl 85 or so. It is not meant to be soloed, and I am also suprised you managed to claim it alone...

Killed it in 40mins with my LS when we got the pop.

we didint use more then 20 people for this either and only had about 5 deaths in the whole time out of all of us.

Not too bad if your PT setup is right and your with abunch of players who know what they are doing, but can still cause alot of problems.

So, every1 who do u feel is the strongest: Kirin or King Behemoth?
RE: Strongest
# Sep 24 2004 at 6:26 PM Rating: Decent

kirin all the way. from what i've heard, kirin's a higher lvl than king behemoth (probably not by much though), and not only that, but he summons FOUR OTHER HNMS to fight with him! byakko, suzaku, seiryu, and genbu are about the same lvl as regular behemoth, so if you're fighting king behemoth, u're fighting like the equivalent of 2 behemoths, but if u're up against kirin, you're fighting like 6 or 7!
RE: Strongest
# Oct 19 2004 at 9:49 AM Rating: Decent
Actually, he summons all 4 Gods. And he still has his two hour. His two hour will be a regular avatar (Shiva, Ramuh, etc) and it will do that 2 hour (Diamond Dust, etc).

Well, if I remember correctly, King Behemoth is around level 85, Kirin is 90. So yes, Kirin is definitely harder. But the Beastgods he summons, also if I remember right, are much much weaker than they're true forms, and summoning one is his 2-hour (meaning he'll only do it once). At least, that's what I remember.

I hear people bring a separate alliance just to call for help on the other god spawns while the first alliance hacks away at Kirin himself ;o

King Behemoth Gives you the title "Behemoth Dethroner". Behemoth's Bane is the title you get from normal Behemoth. Also, you can kill KB with a full alliance lv.75 people. Today, we had 3 PLDs, few RDMs, and various other damage dealers (blms, drks, drgs, etc). I'd say it only took us 3 hours to kill him :P

Well alot of people left from what I saw, not everyone. That chick that rolled 999 lol is actually a guy in my LS. I have no idea why he chose the female build.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 18 2004 at 12:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It wasn't 50+ people. It was about 20 in the group that was fighting; all the others there were competitors left over after it was claimed. One other LS waited to see if the group had enough people there to take it, and the others were members of other LSs that stay for Time of Death. People didn't "leave" after the ****** called for help; well, I don't want to say too much, but let's just say they made it turn yellow again. And, yes, it regens full health...

I'm currently watch at least 50 level 70+ players try to battle this guy. Well all went smoothly, and they got him down to about a quarter of his life left when all of a sudden someone calls for help! Well needless to say everyone started leaving and eventually he respawned with full health and the battle ensued. LoL very funny
