MHW Iceborne Monsters Guide – Barioth

Barioth Weakness

  • Fire

Barioth is another returning monster in MHW Iceborne. This cat-like wyvern utilize the Hoarfrost Environment to unleash powerful ice shards attacks

Iceborne Barioth Quest

Similar to Glavenus, Barioth will be introduced when you progress through the story of Iceborne. The monster first appearance is in the quest Blizzard Blitz.

Unlike other subspecies fights you already completed at this point. Barioth provides a nice challenge when you first fight him.

Iceborne Barioth Guide

As a cat and fanged wyvern, Barioth is very fast and can jump to your place in just a blink of an eye. Despite the long teeth, I rarely see him bite.

Again, you are safe with a Fire Weapon or a Blast one.

The most dangerous attack of Barioth is when he jump up and perform a big slam on the ground. This can take ~50% of your HP if you are still mixing up armor from High Rank.

Occasionally, he will jump to the wall and shoot out Ice Shards.

He can also inflict Ice Blight, which will increase the stamina consumption and reduce stamina recovery rate. This is a big no-no if you plan to use the Clutch Claw, make sure you have some nullberry to counter this.

Finally, don’t forget your Clutch Claw! Check out my Clutch Claw guide on how to flinch shot the monster!
