|This article is about burrowing Behemoths in Tyria and The Underworld. For the reptilian Behemoths in Vabbi, see great beast.|
They are huge beasts that live mainly underground, with only a claw-armed head on a serpent-like body above the surface. The actual shape and size of their bodies is unknown. Usually they will be found waiting dormant, with the neck retracted and the head resting on the ground on a collar of spiky rocks, only springing to life when prey comes within range of their powerful ranged attack. This appearance makes them look almost like harmless piles of rocks from a distance.
Behemoths are stationary beings, that don't leave their place under any circumstances, not even to pursuit fleeing foes or to escape from AoE damage, which makes them very vulnerable.
Most Behemoths are ranger or warriors. The warriors are tough defenders and not so easy targets for melee attackers. Also, due to their high level and high armor they can take quite a beating. Nonetheless, the fact that they are immobile makes them quite easy to defeat. Use AoE skills to quickly take them out.
