Summary[edit | edit source]
Behemoths are massive, hulking beasts that spread throughout in The Shattered Isles. They seem to be naturally occurring, though this has always been in question. One thing we do know is that after being defeated they return to become aether. They feed off the land by consuming Aether, and grow increasingly stronger as they consume, unlike the Fauna that inhabits the Shattered Isles.

Enraged[edit | edit source]
Behemoths can become enraged after taking a significant amount of damage from slayers. This is indicated by a quick burst of red aether in a sphere around the behemoth as well as a residual glow from the body and eyes. Once enraged, behemoths will deal more damage and may attack faster or even change their attack patterns.
While behemoths are more dangerous when they are enraged there are perks that can allow you to do deal additional damage to them. Enraged behemoths may still become aether charged. Behemoths also can not flee from battle when they are enraged.
Aether Charged[edit | edit source]
Some behemoths can become aether charged in a similar manner to becoming enraged. The effects of an aether charged state vary between behemoths but are indicated by a temporary change in appearance and attack patterns as well as attaining new attacks.
While behemoths are more dangerous when they are aether charged there are perks that can allow you to do deal additional damage to them. Charged behemoths may still become enraged. Behemoths also can not flee from battle while they are charged.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Terror of the Shattered Isles[edit | edit source]
Behemoths are savage, gigantic beasts that roam the Shattered Isles and threaten our survival. Entire settlements and countless lives have been lost to these beasts. A behemoth will consume every resource and drop of aether in its path, leaving nothing but lifeless husks.
Behemoths draw their deadly power from the earth itself, swallowing up latent aether in the ground. This power fuels their hunger and the deadly elemental blaze, shock, and frost energy they unleash in combat. This aetheric power determines their physiology, appearance, sometimes even their behaviour. There are even rumours from the frontier of beasts harnessing darker energies as well…
Behemoth Style[edit | edit source]
A slayer’s legend is written in their armour and weapons, forged from the trophies they take from the behemoths they defeat. The smiths of Ramsgate can use these tokens of victory to add the Drask scales to a sword's blade or the hide of a mighty Embermane to your breastplate, for example. Improve your weapons and armour with the spoils of the hunt and every slayer will know the challenges you’ve conquered.
A shift in the Aether[edit | edit source]
Behemoths once kept their distance from inhabited islands, but lately? Not so much. Behemoths have been spotted outside their usual territories – dangerously close to human settlements – and they seem to be growing stronger. There have even been reports of strange new Behemoths out past the Monstrous Verge.
What are they doing out there? Where are they coming from? And why this sudden shift in behaviour?
We’ll be waiting for answers from you, Slayer. Good luck.
