I was in the middle of the open ocean the first time I encountered these. One started chomping on my raft as I was going to the Herbivore Island. I had no clue what it was so I just kept plowing through the water. In the end, I made it to the island and the Leedsichthys didn't destroy the raft entirely. I hopped in the water to get a look at it and it just sat there. They don't mind people, only boats.
Was just travelling in our race with our two newly tamed raptors and this thing came outta no where and bumped our raft knocking a raptor off into deep water. Thankfully whistled all and made a bee like for the shore. We made it with the raft at only 1/5 health left and it swam away. It was only a level 1?! Got the raptor back. Whew!! That was utterly terrifying!
So I had tamed an itchy (named silver), and leveled up its speed a lot. I went for a speed swim down into the deep ocean and found one of these big boys. My tribe mate came to take a pick of it, so did I. So I’m no longer scared of Ark oceans now.
I almost drowned tho becuse I don’t have scuba gear.
I just encountered a leedy and I remembered from YouTube that apparently leedys are the only things that act aggressive towards you raft and attack it. I stayed deathly still on my raft, note this is at herbivore island on mobile I was searching for basils for oil since I think that the population of three or four or five trilos got killed by me for only four oil, and the big ol’ leedy got sort of really close to my raft, but then swam away. I think that it didn’t attack me because I wasn’t moving or getting close to it so i didn’t get in its personal space. I went into my dododex straight away to find out about more about leedies. Don’t move if you see this dude from far away, unless you see it race towards you and you hear the classic battle music. Also, MAKE IT SO PRIME MEAT CAN STACK PLEASE TO IT CAN ROT SLOWER PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! Also, I have a lot of bad past with herbie isle because that’s where I’ve tamed every megalodon I have gotten and they all died to their old friends. That’s all from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I spent 2 whole evenings gathering resources for a large stone base (gateways and everuthing). So I chucked all of this work into a smithy on my raft and as I was sailing there I was suddenly killed and my raft was demolished In ONE bite from this alpha variant. It was right near the shore to. Lesson, be very careful when sailing on a wooden raft!
LOOK OUT FOR THE ALPHA!!! I built a raft and protected it with stone foundations which worked against normal versions (I even tried to go solo in the water in order to make sure that it's safe). When I wanted to move my dinos to the new base, an alpha appeared out of nowhere and destroyed the raft in two hits. Megalodons attacked and everything was dead shortly. So yeah... avoid the big white fish.
So! I went down to herbivore island! Wanted some time to build up to all the things I’ve unlocked. When I get there on my Pelgornis, this Thing is glitched in the bay! Never really grasped the size of these things till now! Lol
