The Monest is an organic hive that acts as both a spawning source and a home for the Mothmants, both thought to be native to the Forest Area. Immobile and stationary on its own, its own swarm of Mothmants need to carry it in order to move to different locations. The base has a bag-looking structure (the top being where Mothmants leave and enter the Monest), with a fleshy purple skin texture; the "legs" it has to support and balance its base seem to be of vegetal composition. The color of the base is shared with the body color of the Mothmants, possibly meaning that a Monest's color could indicate what species of Mothmant it carries.
Monests are helpless creatures by themselves. They have no method of attacking the player besides their constant spawning of Mothmant drones, which makes downing them rather simple. Merely attack with your strongest weapon, ranged or melee, or use fire element attacks, such as Rafoie, in order to wipe out the drones and the hive altogether. In the off-chance that the party is underlevelled, it is recommended that you focus attacks on the Monest first and then pick off the Mothmants one by one with ranged attacks.
