What are Barioth weaknesses, resistances, & drops | Monster Hunter Rise

What big teeth you have, Barioth.

Monster Hunter Rise has plenty of powerful foes for players to take on. Flying Wyverns in Monster Hunter Rise are quite the challenge to take down, and those confronting the Barioth are sure to struggle if they're unaware of how to exploit this monster's weaknesses. Make sure you know this icy foe's weaknesses and are aware of its resistances before fighting it so you can grab some excellent loot.

When fighting this beast, it's good to know what it's weak against or where to inflict that good old damage to slaughter the foe quickly. So here's Barioth's weaknesses, resistances, and drop rates.

All Barioth Weaknesses

Barioth Elemental Weakness

The main weakness of this fanged wyvern is fire, but if you have thunder or ice will still be more effective than using no element at all. Water does very little damage to this beat. Do not use ice, as the Barioth is immune to ice damage. Here are the locations where you should attack Aknosom for extra elemental damage.

It would be best to focus an elemental weapon on its thorns and head, as these are the areas where elemental damage is most effective.

  • If using a cutting weapon focus on the tail first, head second.
  • If using a blunt weapon focus on the head and wings second.
  • If using a bow weapon focus on shooting the head and the tail.

Barioth Resistances and Ailments

The Barioth is resistant to almost every ailment type, and only two ailments impact this wyvern—Blast and Fireblight. If you have weapons with a fast attack, you should quickly inflict Fireblight.

Barioth Drop Rates - Carves, Capturing & Breaking

Depending on your quest, you can get different rewards to forge armor and weapons, but each has a drop rate percentage, ultimately RNG. It is pure luck what you receive.

  • There are multiple ways of gaining items
    • You can carving three times once the monster is dead.
    • You can capture the monster instead of killing it.
      • Or carving the broken appendage of said monster.
    • From looting the drops from the monster
    • After successfully compleing your quest

Most monsters have breakable parts, and Barioth is no different. You can break the following segments of this monster—Fangs, Wing Spikes, and sever its tail. If you break these during the hunt, you will earn extra rewards after completing the quest.
