Where do they spawn on lost island? Sky arrow if spawn deep in the desert
Ok the creature you kill to tame the mantis are endgame but mantises are mid game that makes no sense
Be warned that they have a fairly long range pounce, and do good damage. Don't fight these unless you're truly prepared.
Gillie suit cactus broth and bug repellent..kill all other creatures near and around the mantis feed from behind.
I got jumpscared by one of the mantis and I lost my wyvern I was crying
Using a deinonychus will get you a really good amount of organic polymer from these guys. This is whay I do in asgard in Fjordur.
They aren’t in mobile so for all those people out there who plays only mobile don’t waste time trying to find them
Mantis are one of the best sources of organic polymer.
Kill em and chop em up with a chainsaw for best results.
Really wish you could tame them on crystal isles
