This is one of the best tames in all of ark! It is the only flyer that can go in caves it has night vision it can go invisible and it has echolocation. It can get blood packs very easily. And it is the only way to craft sanguine elixer which can give an automatic 30% to either taming or imprinting ( note it can only be used once per imprint/tame) it also has a life steal effect and you can shoot while riding. It is also fast and has a dive ability kind of like the snow owl it can land on walls and roofs and also it has decent health and melee. Definitely worth the tame!
Fun fact: if you feed the elixir to a baby, juvenile or adolescent Dino even if it’s not ready for it next imprint go into the baby’s inventory and eat the elixir in your inventory and it will give the Dino a 30+ imprint bonus.
This is one of the best tames you can get, dont lose it!!!
- good stats hp/damage/weight/stamina
- good fly speed
- can get invisible in the night
- can latch on any place even trees (careful, the stamina recover is slow when it is latching and if got attacked they loose the wall)
- collect a lot of blood, meat and spoiled meat
- you can use the blood to make elixirs that increase the taming efficiency in 30%( just 1 elixir per tame)
- can shoot while flying
- fast landing
- fast hp recovery
- collect too much spoiled meat
- they gathering is limited ( dont get hide, prime and other things)
I dont have any real bad thing to say about desmodus, they have a lot of pros (some I dont listed) and even the cons are not bad, are useful and balanced. Desmodus eat meat, but prefer blood and it recover their hp with this. Now I cant live in ark without one!!
Desmodus can be tamed with blood packs, it’s a passive tame, and you can give it smaller tames of yours to make its efficiency go higher for more levels.
The Desmodus can harvest spoiled meat in absurd amounts, the bigger the creature, the more spoiled meat you get, which is good for getting narcotics.
Desmodus can also harvest blood packs from creatures, without killing the creature. If you have 200 blood packs in the Desmoduses inventory, you can craft a sanguine elixir, which is good for taming, as it raises the taming bar by 30. It can also be used for imprinting + passive taming.
At night, you can use echolocation, which turns the Desmodus invisible, meaning you can easily steal Wyvern eggs, Drake eggs, etc.
