If the piranhas they say are some of the most annoying, these bastards are deadly af. Mantas pierce through armour, shred it, while these guys stun you. Include the piranhas, and omae wa mou shindeiru. Best bet is Basilosaurus, or decent levelled mosa ( not recommended as shock attacks are the weakness of the mosa) and tusoteuthis, because of the attack range. I hunt these down to total extinction, then gladly save up the bio toxin they drop for giga, royal griffin ( I play on mobile so...) or taming of other whatnot thingys. If you want to kill these early game, as they are seen on the shore quite easily, just grab a few spears and/or pikes then slaughter these bastards. Lure them by walking until swim mode into the water, then depending on your movement speed go backpedal to the shoreline. This will successfully lure them near you and you can slaughter them as you please without endangering you or your mount.
Very easy to kill. Primitive bow takes 4 or 5 arrows. Instead if grinding narcotic, hunt down this and harvest their bodies. They give you something called bio toxin which is used as a narcotic. Cant make arrows out of it, but its surprisingly BETTER than normal narcotics
I think ark should make it tameable, add a saddle that goes on jellyfish’s head and it will still shock when yourtames low health, all dinos near and you as a last ditch attempt to escape vote up for ark to add
It was the nice old days, back at my lovely peaceful river. Only Coelacanths, and a couple of Trilobites. Ahh the nice days, until a jellyfish came. Go for a swim I thought, it will be fun I thought, maybe I will take my Sarco. And so, I went for a swim with my Sarco and what happened?
P.S. KILL EVERYONE OF THESE I WILL GIVE YOU A NICKEL EVERY ONE YOU KILL
While they are dangerous they are the greatest source of narcotics in the game. They give what’s called bio toxin and this will make torpor rise faster. If you want to kill them safely lure them to a raft and then crossbow them down. They are fairly weak so you won’t need many shots to slay them. Your greatest worry will be the sharks but if you can kite them into these guys you will find it works to your benefit.
Using a quetzal, kill the ones on the surface for easy bio toxin, then use it to make shocking darts, which are better than tranq darts, or use the bio toxin as a better narcotic for being Dino's torpor up
I wouldn’t recommend going after these guys unless you have some kind of bow. Once you do get a bow, shoot them from a distance where they can’t get you and shooting them is easy, you can walk up to their bodies once you kill them, take your arrows back and harvest it, but if there’s more than one I would get them all before taking the arrows/harvesting.
