How to Wound Behemoths in Dauntless
What Wound Damage Does
You might already know this, but there are a few damage types in Dauntless that are indicated by different damage colors. Wound damage is indicated by red damage numbers, so if you see the red color popping up when you hit a Behemoth, you’ll know you’re on the right track.
When dealing wound damage, you’ll be able to wound various parts of a Behemoth such as its legs, arms, tail, or head. By doing this, you’ll be able to deal even more damage by striking those wounded parts of the Behemoth.
Slashing weapons will be the most effective when striking wounded parts, followed by blunt weapons and piercing weapons. This can be a great way to inflict tons of damage to a Behemoth in a short period of time, so having a party member focused on dealing wound damage is always a good idea.
Piercing weapons like the War Pike are ideal for dealing wound damage in Dauntless. However, you can also use perks to help with damage such as Acidic, Barbed, Savagery, and Merciless. These will help with your damage multipliers, and if you stack them on a weapon, you can do a lot of damage in a short amount of time.
In general, you’ll want to aim for a Behemoth’s tail or limbs to deal wound damage efficiently. Like we mentioned previously, if you see red damage numbers popping up, that will let you know that you’re on the right track.
