This section describes how to fight against the Ammonite.
The Ammonite is a non-aggressive animal that will not attack the player on sight.
The shell of the Ammonite is tough and resilient against most weapons. Therefore, players should target the tentacled head, which is vulnerable to damage.
A Pike is the best used for close quarters, as the weak area is quite small and hard to aim with a crossbow or rifle. It is also recommended to kill all wild animals nearby, as these will become hostile when you attack the Ammonites.
The Ammonite itself is not a danger, however, when attacked it will release a green substance into the waters, causing nearby wildlife to become aggressive for a whole minute. An Ammonite hunt can quickly become overwhelmed by masses of normally passive animals. Its rage effect will last for 60 seconds. Also, the underwater caverns and depths Ammonites dwell in have their own dangers, such as mass shoals of Cnidaria, as well as many other terrors of the deep.
The Ammonite will not fight back in any way, making for a rather easy kill so long as there are no other animals nearby.
Ever met a cry baby?..This guy will wail if you hit it and will cover you in a type of pheromone gas....causing you to attract every dino, sea or land, to bite your butt. Prepare for war. You only need to survive 80sec.
Very useful for gathering black pearls cuz not only can you get black pearls from them, you can use the rage effect to lure all eurypterids in a fairly large radius out of hiding and kill them for even more black pearls. I recommend using a basilosaurus to do this cuz you will most likely get gangbanged by a bunch of anglers and eels after attacking an ammonite. The wide aoe of the Basilo allows you to hit anything from well in front of its mouth to just behind its butt, so you can kill everything around you by just sitting there and spamming attack. They are also immune to eel and jellyfish stun attacks. Once I was collecting black pearls on my lvl 260 Basilo when I got swarmed by a tuso a mosasaur 4 plesiosaurs 2 dunkleoteus 5 eels 10 anglers a few eurypterids and a few more jellyfish. I killed all of them and only lost 2K out of my 21K health and my Basilo only had a basic primitive saddle.
In this tutorial I will Show you how to easily trap a Leedsichthy.
Before I start with the tutorial i want to say that there are 2 ways to trap him. The 1st way is that you build a giant square inside the water where he can fit in and the 2nd war is that you leed him inside the "river" of the Red Obelisk and close both entrys to the river. Just follow those steps:
1) surch for a Leedsichthy and remember where he is (they often spawn near Herbivore Island)
2) Go to the Bottom of the ocean and surch for a Ammonite. When you find one let him bite you.
3) go to the leedsichthy and lead him inside your giant square or the river of the Red obelisk and close up all entrys.
4) kill all fishes except the Leedsichthy
5) Enjoy scrabing of his prime fish meat (he wont get aggro as long as you dont hit him)
