Koshai is one of the Behemoths in the world of Dauntless.

Journal Entry

”You're looking at a Koshai, cap. Or the Sovereign of Thorns, if you ask Admiral Zai."

Every Behemoth has the potential to devastate settlements, spread chaos across the frontier, and kill the Slayers pursuing it. Any Slayer worth their archonite knows that taking a hunt for granted is a recipe for a painful demise. But few Behemoths can more effectively wield the power of terra aether more effectively than the mighty Koshai, Sovereign of Thorns.

A relatively new Behemoth to the skies over Ramsgate, the Koshai is believed to have first emerged in the hinterlands of Ostian territory. Ostian Slayers and military officers alike told of massive beasts that rode churning terra-infused aether storms out of the Maelstrom and into populated regions. Admiral Janek Zai lost his command chasing a Koshai when a storm surge—assisted, he has always believed, by the Behemoth itself—send a wall of rock slamming into his ironclad airship. Forced to crash-land in Ramsgate, the Ostian admiral swore to stay in the city and aid its Slayers until the Koshai threat was dealt with. He’s still there to this day.

Unlike most every other Behemoth known to science, the Koshai's body really does seem to be composed of at least fifty percent plant matter. When it loses a limb in a fight, a Koshai will grow a replacement almost instantly from the vines and branches that make up parts of its own body. How the Koshai came to be such a bizarre hybrid of two distinct kingdoms of biological life is a puzzle that Dr. Priyani and the School of Behemoth Studies will likely working out for years to come. Assuming, of course, it is a recent evolutionary emergence and not a rare Behemoth species that had been hibernating en masse for a thousand years.


Kat's Hunting Tips:

-Destroy the vine pods at the center of a Koshai’s thorn fields to quickly bring down the surrounding thorns.

-Broken thorn fields will regenerate quickly if central vine pod is not destroyed.

-However, breaking the Koshai’s horns also severs the terra—fueled connection to its pods—instantly destroying all thorns on the field.

-A Koshai can be interrupted during its leap attack and when it is spawning its pod-bombs.

-When enraged, a Koshai calls forth an terra storm that protects the Behemoth from attack and forces Slayers to move through without regenerating stamina. Dissipate the storm by staggering the Koshai or by buffeting the storm itself with ranged attacks.

Koshai

From the heart of the Maelstrom came the mighty Koshai, Sovereign of Thorns. After tearing a swath of destruction through distant Ostia, this singularly powerful Behemoth set its sights on Ramsgate. And now the Sovereign has spawned others of its kind, an entire species of Koshais. A Koshai uses its aetheric control of vines, bramble, and thorns to devastating effect against Slayers, rooting its foes in place and demanding new tactics.

Trivia

  • The name was first mentioned in a preview on dualshockers.com
  • Koshai's sounds were developed by rubbing a squeegee against wet glass[1]

Interrupting

Koshai can be interrupted if you do enough damage when he is twirled up in a vine charging for his aerial attack.

Koshai can be interrupted if hit with a full charged axe swing, primed hammer hit or aerial slice with the sword but only if hit when he leaps to head down.

Koshai can be interrupted if hit with saboteur grip's mine while he is in the air after coming out of the ground leap (mine tossed directly, not primed).
