Dauntless Behemoth Breakpart guide: where to find the Protean Fang, Smoldering Bloodhide, Pristine Moonfeather and more

Behemoth Breakparts are an essential part of crafting new gear in Dauntless and some Breakparks are more challenging to get than others.

When battling a Behemoth, you'll use a range of weapons on its various body parts in order to break off a valuable piece of loot. There are usually a few Breakparts per Behemoth and it might take you a few tries until you get them all to drop.

In this guide, we'll be looking at a different Behemoths and what Breakparts they drop to help you craft the best gear. You can also check out our guides on where to find Orbs, how to get Arcstones and where to find various Scales.

If you manage to break a threat level 8 or higher Neutral Behemoth's part in the first two minutes of a fight, there's a chance you'll get a Skull Gem, Tail Gem or Claw Gem, too.

To get an Elemental Tail Gem, the same rules apply except you'll need to be hunting an Elemental Behemoth as opposed to a Neutral one.

Dauntless: Behemoth Breakparts

Breakparts have different rarities, ranging from common to rare. To increase your chances, join a high-level party and equip your best gear to combat a Behemoth of a specific elemental type. It would also be useful to go after the most difficult Behemoth as soon as you log in, as well as joining Heroic hunts.

These Breakparts are the most sought after so far, so here's which Behemoths you can source them from. You'll need to strike a Behemoth's body, head, horns, legs and tails to get these parts, so try and coordinate your party to attack from different sides.


The Valomyr can be found in The Maelstrom in the fifth zone of Dauntless. It's a Radiant Behemoth, so your best bet is to equip Umbral gear in order to defeat it.

It has several drops from its body, including:

  • Valomyr Hide
  • Apocalypse Horn
  • Protean Fang
  • Radiant Dewclaw
  • Unstable Tailspike

You'll want to be at least 300 power before facing the Valomyr, so don't worry if you're not there yet.

Bloodfire Embermane

The Embermane is one of the first Behemoths you'll meet in Dauntless, but it also has a dreaded Bloodfire variety. Its weakness is Frost, obviously, so equip whatever Frost weapons you have before joining a Hunt.

Slaying a Bloodfire Embermane will net you:

  • Smoldering Bloodhide
  • Bloodsoul Shard
  • Emberhorn
  • Savage Hooktooth
  • Smoked Dewclaw
  • Burning Tailspike

To get the Bloodsoul Shard, you'll need to join a Heroic Hunt and the Smoldering Bloodhide is a rare drop.

Dreadfrost Boreus

This Behemoth controls little minions that can overwhelm your party quite easily, so equip Blaze gear and get ready to join another Heroic Hunt

Slaying a Dreadfrost Boreus gets you:

  • Psionic Scale
  • Dreadfrost Shard
  • Horn Fragment
  • Hoof Chip
  • Icy Hindscale

You'll also get the Boreus Hide for attacking its body.

Moonreaver Shrike

This is another Heroic hunt Behemoth that's Neutral, so equip the highest level gear you can before beginning this hunt. It has quite a lot of loot in varying rarities, which is fitting because it's a deceiving difficult challenge.

  • Pristine Moonfeather
  • Pristine Moonbeak
  • Perfect Moonbeak
  • Pristine Moonmantle
  • Perfect Moonmantle
  • Pristine Reaverdown
  • Perfect Reaverdown

You can interrupt its gliding attack if you're lucky enough, which can increase your chances of a rarer drop.

Shockjaw Nayzaga

We're heading back to the Maelstrom for this Behemoth, and it's another Heroic hunt to boot. Again, this Behemoth can drop quite a few items, so here's what to look out for:

  • Charged Shockjaw Hide
  • Conductive Spine
  • Greater Sparkclaw
  • Sparking Claw
  • Charged Tailspike
  • Sparking Tailspike

Equip Terra gear to slay this beast with ease.

Deadeye Quillshot

  • Flawless Spinehide
  • Ferocious Snout
  • Perfect Tusk
  • Deadeye Quill
  • Deadeye Razorquill
  • Spiked Shinplate

  • Static Hide
  • Voltscale

  • Volthoof

  • Aether Thorn
  • Splintered Antler

  • Dull Riftspike
  • Nightbringer Riftspike

Razerwing Kharabak

  • Assassin Soul Shard
  • Deadly Incisor
  • Claw Shell Fragment
  • Deadly Oviposter
