How do I tame a arthropluera? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a arthropluera.
They CANNOT attack you while in the water!!!
Taming an Arthropleura is really simple
Note: there's always a risk of losing your genitals so be careful when taming
Step 1: Spoil meat. Because nobody will waste broth of enlightenment
Step 2: make bug repellent. Ghillie Armor isn't necessary, the bugs pretend you have ghillie
Step 3: Carefully approach Satan (he won't notice you)
Step 4: feed him spoiled meat
Step 5: cyropod it and get the hell out of there as soon as possible because you don't have the saddle.
Step 6: make a saddle
Step 7: realise it can't climb anything on mobile
Step 8: Get Depressed
Step 9: Realise nothing agroes it and that you can easily just speedrun caves
Step 10: Ascendant Long neck.
ARK Community: Too bad a titan is basicly an expensive, end-game raid tame.
Arthropluera: Hold my beer
PICK IT UP WITH A MEGALOSAURUS AND TAME IT FROM THERE IT IS !) TIMES EASIER AS NO CAVE ANIMALS ATTACK IT!!!!!!
Why must the most scariest and violent things be tamed passively?
They can be found in genesis in the magmasaur cave. Make the button green so the app creators can see
Easiest and safest way to tame this is to lure it under water. They stop aggro and you can tame as you please. Just make sure you come up for air every once in a while. Also be sure the water is deep enough.
If you use a crab an grab them, just put them underwater an they wont agro you, boom easy tame
The person pretending to be Schwalbe is not her. Downvote anyone you see pretending to be a content creator, because they wouldn’t announce who they are in a Dododex tip.
Don't wear any armor when around the arthropleura, because it melts any armor
Bye bye flak gear
How to tame
Step one : go into a cave
Step two : find one and lure it into the water( they can’t attack you while you’re in water)
Step three: feed it rotten meat
Step four: give it a name!
Hope this helps:)
Full Ghillisuit, bug repellent, and balls of steel because these are scary to tame! They have the taming slot right behind their head about where the saddle would normally sit. Must approach from behind and only approach when feeding, stay away otherwise
This is my attempt to bring together all the tips that worked for me and explain how things went for me playing on an official pve server on The Center map, and specifically the volcano cave. You can’t be mounted to get into the opening to the entrance tunnel of the cave, and then again at the end of the tunnel as you enter the actual cave. You can’t build in here, but you can place sleeping bags.
Don’t be lazy - make broth of enlightenment. Kill woolly rhinos for their horns and the broth is easy. Your entire goal during taming is to minimize the number of contacts with the arthro. During the winter event in 2022 with 3x taming, a single broth of enlightenment will tame a 150 arthro. My advice: make and bring more than one broth - the chances of encountering multiple high levels worth taming are pretty high. You may as well make the trip worthwhile.
Next, Don’t be lazy - have plenty of bug repellent and the best set of ghillie you can get together. I go ahead and use both during the whole trip (except a max armor ascendant flak helmet), because bug repellent doesn’t work on titanboas, etc., that are likely to be present in the same places as the arthros. Plan for disaster and come prepared for that.
It is absolutely true that theris do not aggro the cave dinos **while you are riding it** so bring one if you’ve got it. Just remember that once you dismount, things can change in a hurry, especially if you aren’t using bug repellent and ghillie, or if you just didn’t see a boa or something. By comparison, a shadowmane aggros everything. Personally, I bring a few standards with me in cryos, including a theri and a megatherium. If push comes to shove and you have to start killing everything that moves, you are literally in the megatherium’s wheelhouse. It’ll be enraged the entire time (and slot cap with chitin if you need it). I also bring a shadowmane for the water, but you’ll be fine without it.
The arthros won’t aggro while your theri kills other stuff right by it (except another arthro), just as long as nothing hits the arthro. So try to clear everything else that is anywhere close to your arthro without hitting it. One time there were two arthros right next to each other, one a 150 and the other a 55, and I couldn’t kill the 55 without drawing aggro from the 150. So I tamed the 150, and the 55 immediately aggro’d the now tamed 224 arthro and then managed to hit me before the 224 killed it. But that bite hurts.
Finally, I suggest you have a plan for what you’ll do if you die in a big nasty snake and bug pile, where all your stuff will be. One time, there were so many araneo shooting webs that Ark crashed, and I was dead when I logged back in - my tame was alive because it was on neutral, but it fell off a ledge and definitely didn’t kill everything that was by my bag. I also couldn’t whistle it back from where it was to the closest sleeping bag I dropped. I was able to run to my tame naked since we had cleared that route, but it was sketchy and not what I would ever want to do again. From then on, I had a box with a bed and a mortar&pestle as close to the cave entrance as I could safely place it. Before going in the cave, I would leave a few things in the mortar&pestle to use if I died / like a megatherium and a flyer in cryos, extra bug repellent, armor/weapons, whatever else you’d want to have on the way back to your bag. Use th flyer to get back to the cave entrance, then ride the mega or whatever beast tame you bring until you get back to your bag. It maybe takes an extra couple minutes, but if you try to just spawn in on sleeping bags in the cave without any gear or tames waiting for you, there’s a good chance you’ll just end up getting killed over and over again as you struggle to get your stuff back.
I hope this narrative proves helpful - good luck!
they CANNOT attack you while in the water!
To tame these you need broth of enlightenment ⬆️ newbies can see
Tip for anyone who thinks these fart wads are easy to tame: they aren't. Before you can even think about going down a cave to tame one, you need at least one Broth of Enlightenment, which you cannot feed to them until they de aggro, which means you also need Bug Repellent. A ghillie suit is recommended but not mandatory. If you wanna try stealing one with a megalosaurus to tame elsewhere, fat chance. The game tends to despawn the arthro the moment you exit the cave. Be prepared, thats all I'm gonna say.
Equip good ghillie equipment, use some bug repellant, this will make the Arthropluera not sense you easier. Crouch down and slowly walk up behind it. With rotted meat on your last hotbar box, feed it until it’s tamed!
Tame these while riding a scorpion! Nothing will aggro unless you attack. Tame with rotten meat in your hotbar so u don’t have to dismount. Works for Dung Beetles/Centipedes/Spiders. Walk in, choose level, tame passively, walk out and request to the surface 👍 good luck
Pick it up with a wyvern drop it in the water it becomes passive
