What’s that rumbling underneath the desert sand? A death worm and if your I’ll prepared your probably dead! So let’s talk about them!
Appearance: Mud brown exoskeleton, with 2 legs on each side of the segmented exoskeleton, it’s face is similar to that of stag Beatles’ mandibles, with large legs dangling underneath them.
Where would you find one?: [MAJOR WARNING: these are extremely dangerous if you aren’t prepared] To find one simply traverse the border of scorched earth.
What do they do?: In lore, they were meant to terminate ANY survivors that try to exit the border, and they do this very efficiently. This is do to their massive health pool, their intimidating size, and the ability to come out of nowhere if your not paying attention. (So basically they’re the Gandalf’s of arks border: “you. SHALL-NOT! PASS!!!”)
Is there a reason to come face to face with one?: If your a low level… definitely not. If your a high level survivor with a fully imprinted tank of a tame, like a wyvern. Then yes there is a reason for killing them. Reason number 1 They are the only source of death worm horns (I know ironic right?). Reason number 2: The XP you gain when killing one.
Of course there’s also reasons not to mess with one: Their massive health pool. On top of being the equivalent to a reaper king Giga hybrid, it’s capable of taking huge chunks of health from your tame. If you run into one on accident without a tame, run while you still can or you can consider your self all sorts of dead.
*Deathworm horns can be used to quickly tame a mantis
*Deathworms can ONLY traverse terrain while underground, while underground they sacrifice the ability to attack you, the same goes for you attacking it.
*deathworms can be detected by the bump of moving sand towards its target, they only attack survivors.
*When deathworms can’t reach the target, it has to go underground to get closer, before then being able to hit the target.
*Deathworms are around 1/4 taller than a giganotasaurus
Thanks for reading!
In order to fight death worms, get a rex with around 10k health and 200% melee damage. This lets you tank it while dealing loads of damage.
My Friend: What Happened?
Me: I DO NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
My Friend: Oh Did All Of Your Tames Get Killed By That Deathworm Again?
Me: NOT JUST MEH TAMES 😟🤕😠
Use the horns to tame mantises for mantis kibble then you can get rock golems
Ur nan is a nice person and I hope u have a good day
The absolute easiest way to fight these is with a megatherium, any level will work just make sure you have a bug buff active and you can chainsaw through even alphas with ease.
On Ragnarok I had the 'best' surprise ever and encountered one not knowing what the heck was happening I was gathering meat from killing animals and noticed some dust following me I stayed to see what it was and a giant worm appeared and killed my pteranodon and me along with it
