How to beat the Barroth

As suggested by its tiny front legs and huge, very solid head, the Barroth is like a walking hammer. It will spend its time charging you or headbutting you. It may also seek to lift you like a bull in a series of head movements.

When he is coated in mud, some of his attacks release projectiles that can inflict the Water state alteration on you. You can attack the pockets of mud on his body to prevent him from using it in combat, but the Barroth will become stronger. Pay attention to the sharpness of your weapons.

With such a hard head, it is not advisable to hit it unless you really want to break its skull. The Barroth's weaknesses are mainly in its front legs and the tip of its tail.
