Sounds unlikely but quite true...I own a high level moth with beautiful scarlet wings. It was following me set to attack target when I encountered 3 raptors & a carno. While I was piking the rappies to death my lymantria actually killed that carno plus harvested its meat & hide. AWESOME little beast❗
With teamwork, it can be used to help tame other animals. One team member on Lymantria, the other ones shooting tranq. The slow effect is 90%, therefore, plenty to slow down any creature enough for a person to type it while shooting tranq shots.
Had a lvl 95 with 800+ health and a lvl 10 poison wyvern attacked and the moth was going to town, it didnt kill tge wyvern but it put up a hell of a distraction for me and my boys to get the stuff to kill it .......worth the tame tbh
Tamed Lymantrias make excellent base buddies. They are slow and agile - making them ideal for offloading dinos and building tall bases. They can also easily land on a target 1x1 square, and usually stay on that square if you need to turn while landed. This particularly is useful for reloading turrets or placing that last ceiling. For low level base buddies, level weight and stamina. For high level base buddies, only level weight.
Little lymantria fact, if it isnt urgent, do not fast fly. Dont waste your stamina because its fast fly isnt crazy, but it's slow fly is faster than most flying mounts slow fly, making them long distance shuttles early game
Get one with over 10k HP, through some cake in it and soak a couple of bases, if they go online, fly high and away. They can also slow other dinos so you can hop off and take them, or others can tame the dinos that are slowed down.
