Hunting Tips
・Destroy the spikes on its winged forelegs and it won't be as zippy on the ice anymore! If you really want to slow a Barioth down, aim at those spikes.

Barioth Attack Patterns

Ice Breath Twister

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Ice Breath Twister.gif
Barioth unleashes its icy breath towards the target. If you get hit by this, you become coated in Iceblight which slows wirebug regeneration tremendously.

Leap Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Leap Slam.gif
Barioth is an extremely mobile monster that can attack hunters from any angle and distance. Its Leap Attacks are arguably on par with Nargacuga's — if not better.

Barioth has four variations of this attack:

Leaping Attack Variations
Running Leap Attack Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Running Leap Attack.gif
The most basic variation, Barioth telegraphs this attack with a short hop before commiting to a full-on leap.
Hop Attack Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Hop Attack.gif
A short version of the Running Leap Attack. This attack is mostly used on hunters that are close.
Reckless Dive Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Reckless Dive.gif
This variation covers the most distance and can be used consecutively depending on the state of Barioth's forelegs.
IMPORTANT: Barioth can slip off-balance after performing this attack if at least one of its forelegs is broken.
Leap Slam Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Leap Slam.gif
This variation deals the most damage. Barioth targets a hunter and performs a high leap before slamming back to the ground, dealing high damage and knocking down the target if it connects.
IMPORTANT: You can evade this attack using a well-timed dodge. Stay on the move and wait for Barioth to leap upward before dodging.

Claw Swipe

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Claw Swipe.gif
Barioth uses its massive claws on either foreleg to swipe at its target, dealing high damage and potentially knocking the target down.

Shoulder Check

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Shoulder Check.gif
Using its massive size and arm spikes, Barioth will often shoulder check any hunters attacking from its sides. This attack has a very large hitbox — Make sure you time your dodges well or prepare to block!

Tail Whip

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Tail Whip.gif
Barioth will hop slightly before whipping its tail around from the left or right, similar to Nargacuga. This attack can infict Iceblight and knock its target down if it connects.

Airborne Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Airborne Attacks.gif
Barioth can temporarily fly up to perform airborne versions of two attacks — Always keep an eye out on the sky to dodge or block accordingly!

If you're quick enough, you can even flash it out of the sky using a Flash Bomb.

Possible Airborne Attacks
Ice Breath Twister Reckless Dive (Leap Attack)

How to Beat Barioth

Bring Nulberries

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Bring Nullberries.png
Barioth's Ice Breath Twister and Tail Whip inflict Iceblight to anyone they hit, drastically slowing their wirebug regeneration. You can negate this effect using Nulberries so make sure you bring a full stack into the hunt!

Blunt Weapons are Recommended

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Blunt weapons against Barioth.gif
Barioth is weaker to blunt damage, so use Hammers, Hunting Horns and the like to defeat this beast!

Focus on its Forelegs and Tail!

Foreleg Break Tail Sever
Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Broken Foreleg.gif Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Severed Tail.gif

Focus on Barioth's Forelegs and Tail to greatly reduce its mobility. Broken Forelegs can cause Barioth to slip off-balance after performing any of its Leap Attacks, while a severed tail greatly reduces the danger of its Tail Whip.

Use Fire Element

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Use Fire Element.png
Barioth is generally weak to fire, so use weapons with fire element to make the hunt easier!

Keep Mobile

The Barioth is quick, and will leap around while fighting. Make sure that you either keep moving so you don't get overwhelmed, or block appropriately. It also makes it hard to hit it from range so take note of this when using bowguns and bows.
