Barioth - Tips & Tricks
With fangs as long as swords, Barioth is a ruthless predator that has thrived in the cold grounds of Hoarfrost Reach. An extremely agile monster, it deals ice damage with its ice breath & can summon mini tornadoes from the ground.
Found In Hoarfrost Reach
The Barioth can be found wandering around Hoarfrost Reach which is only accessible if you have the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion.
Preparing For Barioth
Bring A Fire Element Weapon
As an ice-elemental monster, Barioth's biggest weakness is fire. Bring along a fire element weapon to do the most damage with every hit.
Gear Up With Ice Resistance
Although not all of Barioth's attacks have Ice Damage, his Ice Breath lingers and can easily hit players as they try to dodge other attacks. Having Ice Resistance will at least lessen its damage.
Break Arms To Stop From Wall Climbing
When in icy caves, the Barioth will climb walls and jump to attack. If you want to prevent this, break the extruding bones on its forelimbs so it won't have anything to grapple the walls with.
Barioth - Weakness & Effective Damage Type
The Barioth has 3 weak spots: Its head, forelimbs, and tail. All these areas can also be broken.

Flash Monster While In The Air
While in the air, you can flash the Barioth to make it fall down to the ground and incapacitate it. This will also cancel any of its attacks while airborne.
Keep Moving Away in Closed Spaces
The Barioth will grab on to walls and jump behind to attack. It's important for hunters to keep track of its position at all times and move away immediately when it changes positions.
