This thing is the ultimate warship. Its saddle has three gun turrets that consume element when shooting. It has a bomber mode that drops a cluster of bombs below it, consuming ambergris as the ammo. It can pretty much warp you and your nearby allies instantly. Plus it has a platform where you can build structures, similar to the platform saddles we’ve seen on Quetzals, Paracers, etc. The platform space is really small, but definitely workable.
Use a mek with canon to tame, 1 rocket to take down any lvl.
Very op in pvp as it can mesh across walls and annihilate TEK, however it is 100% useless in pve as of now, it is too slow and doesn’t have as much weight as a gasbag or a basilisk.
It could have use in pve if it was actually able to produce ambergris, as ambergris comes from whales in the lore, that would make magmasaurus breeding possible across your favorite ARKs.
Producing ambergris passively has to be implemented to give use to this creature in pve...
They also wonder around on their own, not sure it’s a BUG or if it’s intended, so leach or pod it.
The astrocetus builds up momentum and speed (cosmic power) over time while traveling the same direction. Every time it breathes out space dust i guess you could call it, it speeds up. This momentum also affects the distance that it can teleport.
As of writing this tip (Jan. 26, 2020), Genesis isn’t released, meaning we have no idea what it does besides the abilities unveiled by the devs (Bombs, gun turrets, and teleportation/hyperspace), or how much stam each ability uses, what it can and can’t break, etc.
It can swim, it's just unfathomably slow. Flight is also slow but builds up speed to a point comparable to a quetz or Argy. Aside from that, either I'm using hyperspace wrong, or it only teleports you maybe 100' ahead or so.
This tameable space whale is found in the Lunar Biome and can be equiped with a saddle. It has a tractor beam function that can pick up other Dino's, even the Brontosaurus. Additionally, it can be stored in a cryopod.
