Tips on how to beat Behemoth King in Final Fantasy 16

The Masterless Marauder, AKA Behemoth King, is a Level 47 S Rank Notorious Mark who uses multiple AOE (Area of Effect) attacks, making it one of the hardest Hunts in Final Fantasy 16. Before you face it, we recommend fully upgrading your potion potency and inventory capacity, and levelling Clive up to at least the mid 40's.

For more help, here's some tips on how to beat Behemoth King (The Masterless Marauder) in Final Fantasy 16:

  • Stagger Behemoth King as often as possible - On top of Shiva's Diamond Dust and Garuda's Gouge and Aerial Blast skills, use some of the abilities you would usually save for damage, like Gigaflare, to help stagger Behemoth King quicker. This limits the amount of 'Apocalypse' attacks Behemoth King can do during the fight, which can kill Clive in just one or two hits.
  • Stay in the air during Apocalypse - This move can kill Clive almost instantly, so we recommend switching between the Phoenix's dash and Garuda's jump, along with using normal jumping to help dodge the deadly meteors during Apocalypse.
  • Use Will-o'-the-Wykes for some protection - This fire ability creates a shield for Clive, offering some protection against a projectile or two during Behemoth King's Apocalypse. We wouldn't rely on it completely though, as it acts like more of a back-up protection skill while you're jumping and shifting in the air to avoid Apocalypse damage.

  • Activate Clive's Limit Break, then unleash abilities when Behemoth King is fully staggered - This means you're causing even more damage with Clive's most powerful abilities. Start with the best ones, as the Limit Break gauge continues to lower even when in the ability animation, so you don't get much time. We like using Bahamut's Gigaflare and either Titan's Windup or the Phoenix's Rising Flames during this time.
  • You can equip abilities on other Eikons - If you like more than two of an Eikon's abilities, you can equip it on another Eikon as long as you've mastered the ability, so remember that...
  • Respecing is free - You can refund any of your Ability Points for free and put those points into mastering another ability if you think it will help you more in the Behemoth King fight.

The rewards for defeating Behemoth King (The Masterless Marauder) are:

  • x1 Behemoth Shackle
  • x1 Orichalcum
  • 20,000 EXP
  • 200 Ability Points
  • 55 Renown
  • 20,000 Gil

Good luck facing Behemoth King in Final Fantasy 16!
