Being very timid creatures, they will generally flee when attacked. However, they will occasionally fight back with slams and tail slaps. These however are not strong and they are easily brought down.
They will swim around underwater and occasionally come to the surface. They only occasionally stop, allowing hunters to attack.
- Epioth, if unthreatened, will occasionally come to the surface for air.
- When a large monster is in the same zone, they will swim corkscrews rapidly, sometimes causing an obstruction.
- Epioth closely resemble the real world plesiosaurs; they sport long necks and tails, small heads, and four fingered flippers.
- Strangely, in the demo, this creature can be carved to obtain Ludroth items.
