Battle Edit

Behemoths can attack in groups of two. They and counter offensive esper summons with Meteor and most other attacks with Beatdown, which deals massive damage.

Locke can steal Hermes Sandals, a useful Relic, from them.

Strategy Edit

Behemoths are weak to Ice, so Blizzara spells are effective. Strago can also use Lv 4 Flare for heavy damage. A way of providing Vanish, such as the esper Phantom, makes dealing with Behemoths easier, as their normal attack pattern is purely physical.
