The Achatina is a Knock-Out tame, using the expensive resource of Sweet Vegetable Cake. Using a taming pen is the most suitable strategy, due to the Achatina being found in the Swamps and Redwood Forests, some of the more dangerous areas of the ARK. Plus, because of the size of the Achatina, it is easily able to be carried by all ridable flying mounts, expressing the fact that a taming pen would be the best way to tame this critter.
if you want a lot of cementing paste but don't have veggie cakes, call up your argeventis and swing by the swamp. use the argy to pick up a wild achatina and carry it home. drop it into an enclosure and boom! free paste, no taming required. just make sure nothing gets in and kills it
They worth the veggie cake. It gives 100 paste and organic polymer. Just level up their food so they won't be hungry fast.
I have 2 bee hives and 7 tree sap taps (important to make veggie cakes). I can produce more cakes than what my 2 achatina can consume at a time. Now, I never run out of paste and have a lot of veggie cakes (I needed separate refrigerator just for my cakes)
