If you’ve been having trouble with Behemoth Quests, it’s time to let the elements help you in battle.

First up, there are four elements in Dragon Project: Fire, Water, Earth and Lightning.

Behemoths with an element have elemental weakness. You can get these information on the Quest screen before you head off for battle.

Behemoth Elements

 

Elemental Attack

If you equip yourself with a Fire weapon, your chances of defeating this Earth-element Behemoth will be higher. And don’t forget to insert a Fire Attack Magi into your weapon too!

Tip: Not all equipment have an element.

Elemental Attack

The two numbers circled shows the damage dealt. Physical damage is shown in white (221 here) and elemental damage is shown in yellow (231 here).

Physical Attack

This bow does not have an element, so the only number shown here is the physical damage dealt.

 

Elemental Defense

The reverse is true for armor. If you are battling an Earth Behemoth, make sure you’re wearing an armor that will help defend against Earth ATKs.

For older Behemoth equipment sets (before Paradise Houran sometime in October 2017), the elemental defense of the armor matches the elemental attack of the weapon. That means if you have an older equipment set such as the Scorcher’s Set, the weapon deals fire elemental ATK and the armor defends against fire attacks.

For the newer Behemoth equipment sets, this has been tweaked so that the armor will be complementary. For instance, the Blackfire Set weapon deals fire ATK while the armor defends against Earth DMG.

 

TL;DR summary

It’s not about whether physical ATK/DEF or elemental ATK/DEF is better. It’s simply about using them to your advantage.

When battling a… Use Elemental ATK Use Elemental DEF
Fire (Behemoth) Water (Weapon & Magi) Fire (Armor)
Water (Behemoth) Lightning (Weapon & Magi) Water (Armor)
Lightning (Behemoth) Earth (Weapon & Magi) Lightning (Armor)
Earth (Behemoth) Fire (Weapon & Magi) Earth (Armor)

 

Tip: If you have upgraded your equipment to its maximum level and it’s time to evolve it, you can sometimes choose between a normal (non-elemental) evolve or an elemental evolve. If you pick the elemental evolve, your equipment will gain an element.

  1. OMG thank you so much Dragon Project for this tip. I sucked at Behemoth battles so hard, that I relied on extremely high leveled players to do that for me. Because of this tip, I will now start getting more armor sets and use better strategies. Thank you so much!

  2. if you were to use water armour defence against a fire behemoth wouldn’t that be better than fire armour for a fire behemoth?

        1. Hi Benson, thanks for this very detailed experiment, and for bringing this to our attention. We’ve revised some points in the article to clarify.

          – For old Behemoth sets (before Paradise Houran), a fire set means you get a weapon that deals fire damage and armor that defends against fire attacks.

          – However, for new Behemoth sets, a fire set means you get a weapon that deals fire damage and armor that defends against earth attacks.

          – That makes it a little confusing, but the main takeaway is that it’s not about whether physical or elemental DEF is better, but more about using the elements to your advantage.

          Thanks again!
