Doedicurus take "defense form" when HP is lower than 2/3, so even if this calculator say you can... plz don't use a crossbow, or you will lose all the effort. Take your time to make darts, especially if you want a high level one. Its one of the first "annoying" tames of the game, but its very worth to have one. Definitelly A MUST HAVE.
In ark mobile Dodecirus can be found in large numbers at the redwood forests at the top left of the map or the mountains.
Dodecirus are knockout tames and they eat berries
They have armour on the top where they take less torpor so shoot their underside and if you damage it to much it will curl into a ball and it will be hard to knock them out and if you hit a Dodecirus all nearby Dodecirus will attack you
Dodecirus are slow so you dont need a mount to outrun them and you wont need a trap because it might not catch up to you.
Abilities when tamed:
Dodecirus will turn into a ball and roll really fast also they can destroy rocks,bushes and trees and gather their resources and they have a weight reduction on stone abd the saddle is unlocked at level 34 and made in the smithy.
⭐ yes, tranq him in the face and if they chase you, back peddle and keep aiming for the face, if they turn and flee, try to run along side it and aim for the underbelly... if it curls into a ball, crouch in a bush or something and wait for it to uncurl... definitely a necessary mid game creature to capture for building with stone...
