Behemoths and Ancient Behemoths are level 7 creatures of Stronghold town. They are recruited from the Behemoth Lair (while the external dwelling is Behemoth Crag).

"The attack of these giant creatures is so overwhelming it reduces their target's ability to mount further defenses. The attack of the behemoth reduces target defense value by 40%. Ancient behemoth attacks reduce it by 80%." RoE manual

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

Tactics and info[edit]

This section contains a general opinion over the subject! However, that doesn't mean it's necessarily untrue.

The defense is reduced only for the Behemoth's attack, and is returned to normal immediately after that.

An Ancient Behemoth is among the few recruitable level 7 creatures that can defeat an Archangel in one-on-one combat, another example being the Haspid from Horn of the Abyss expansion. (A Titan can also defeat an Archangel one-on-one by defending 4 times and then attacking).

Analysis of the specialty ability[edit]

They ignore 40%/80% of the opponents defense. Depending on their attack value to the opponents defense Value, there are two scenarios:

  • Scenario I: The Behemoths have more attack than the defending creature's defense (then, every attack the Behemoths have more than the defending creatures defense increases their damage by 5%)
  • Scenario II: The Behemoths have less attack than the defending creature's defense (then, every defense the defending creature has more then the Behemoths attack decreases the damage taken by 2.5%)

Below, you see how much this is for some attack/defense values. As can be seen, this ability is becoming more and more useful in the late-game. Increase your hero's attack as much as possible for maximum effect.
