My favorite thing with anglers
"Hey I'm going on a pearl run, anyone wanna play bodyguard?"
Are you going to bite ammonites this time?"
"Told you it wasn't on purpose"
"Alright alright I'll go lemme get some scuba and I'll hop on the mosa"
Ten minutes later my tribemate is having to save me from two mosas, an alpha mosa, 50 anglers, 20 eels, 7 plesies all in one area
"STOP BITING THE AMMONITES"
"IT WAS AN ACCIDENT! they hide in the reefs and I hit them if they happen to be by a pearl patch! :'( "
Nope, totally biting them on purpose hehehe
SCUBA GEAR OR YOU WILL DIE BECAUSE IT IS TOO DEEP
Pro tip! Anglerfish can be caught in a fish basket!
As of the latest patch they collect pearls when you bite them.
This is kind of horrific amd not the most humane thing, but here goes. You can get a few of these, breeds them, and kill the children for angler gel. Just saying 😶
On mobile if you ride an itchyosaur anglers don't agro on you even if you attack them
Level up melee to collect more pearls. Level up speed to outswim creatures.
People keep saying use angler gel for fuel, but that’s a waste. Use wood so you can then get charcoal for gunpowder, something that you constantly need.
- Main use for this tame is using the Angler as a "lure" for other anglers kill anglers for their gel. The gel is the longest burning fuel in the game at approx. 6 minutes per 1 gel
- secondly use is a light source underwater
P. E. A. R. L. S. That's all you need to know about this amazing creature.
In crystal islesyou can tames them in the bubble. Stand outside and shoot them with your longneck when they come close to the edge. Easy tame. You can passively tame the eels in the bubble too
Be really care when knocking these things out from a distance! Unfortunately they don't look knocked out when they are so continuing to shoot darts at them can be an easy an unfortunate mistake to make.
If only they could lure in other fish with their light.
Want infinite fuel?
1. Get yourself a simple underwater tame like a meg
2. Kill anglers for gel
3. Store and keep burning in standing torches or refinery
( STANDING AND WALL TORCHES BURN BLUE)
I collect this with a plesiosaur and can burn 700 metal with just 30. Lucky I collected 5000
Anglers are pretty useful for getting pearls under water. (You can travel them around in fish baskets or cryo pods) but they also drop angler gel which could be useful
many can be found in pearl cave!
but watch out for bears.. and yetis...
You don’t need a saddle to ride them.
Can be used to pick up 60ish pearls instead of 6 or so by hand. Awesome tame now since the update added this.
Use an dolphin to tame because you can shoot off the back and nothing will agro it 👍
