I crafted a 140 ascendant today. 1.1k metal, 10k element dust. Threw it out to run around killing corrupted creatures. It immediately got killed by a 135 corrupted rock drake that was stuck under the ground and unkillable. Didn't even get to ride on it. Thanks Ark.
Bring these to the island and bobs will surround you like paparazzi. Teleport on to a wall and then watch them try to find you. Be careful it can be Bola’d and it uses ele dust to eat. Bring like 1k extra ele dust and a cryopod just in case you run out of dust.
