Don’t Run in a Straight Line

Many of Barroth’s attacks can be avoided by dodging or running to its side. Avoid running away from it in a straight line, as it can easily hit you with its charging attack.

Go for its Legs and Tail

Barroth’s head is very tough and makes most melee weapons bounce off. Unless you are trying to farm for Barroth scalps, there is really no reason to break its head. Focus on its legs and tail instead to do damage.

Bring Nullberries

Barroth’s attacks cause waterblight, causing your stamina to recover at one-third the normal rate for one minute. Use nullberries to cure this. You can get these from gathering points around Wildspire Waste if you run out.

Observe Barroth’s Body

When fighting Barroth in a muddy area, it will roll around and coat itself in mud. When Barroth shakes the mud off, clumps of it will cover the surroundings. Stepping on these will impede movement, making you an easy target for Barroth’s follow-up attacks. Being coated in mud also causes Barroth’s head slam to shoot out mud in addition to the normal damage.

You can wash the mud off Barroth by shooting it with puddle pods from your slinger. The grime will also eventually come off over time, though Barroth can just coat himself with it again.

Barroth’s weakness also depending on its current state. It will be weak to fire when clean and to water when covered in mud.
