DO NOT ENGAGE OR YOU WILL DIE! I was hunting araneos when this thing came out of nowhere and three shot me! All my dimorphs were literally devoured when I came back. It is like centipedes in real life but instead of killing you slowly with poison it kills you with bites quickly. Do not equip anything lower than Chitin or you will get one shot. Make the up arrow green so people can know 🙏🏻
A fun way to defend your house if you live in a radiation zone is to keep theses things around and enable turret mode on them. They will destroy the hazard armour of anyone who tried to raid you so they will die of radiation poisoning.
How to get insane loot!
Step 1. Tame arthropleura
Step 2. Run cave of the strong (NOTHING will attack you)
Step 3. Tribute and repeat steps for infinite resources
BONUS: use industrial grinder for Insane resources
So, as far as I can tell, arthropluera deal more torpor damage for their melee stat than scorpions. I dont know if scorpions somehow scale better but this is what I have so far
My data so far:
Lvl 23 arthro - 202% melee ~ 170 torpor over a little under 10 seconds
Lvl 21 pulmino - 226% melee ~ 106 torpor over 10 seconds
Both were done in a single hit on a lvl 23 trike. Data is from mobile on easy
