One of the easiest ways to get past most caves, is to take in a high lvl DireWolf and just slap those pests into the walls. It makes it so much easier when you use the dire wolf’s knock back to counter those pesky bats. Personally, I suggest a lvl 230 Eerie DireWolf, coz that allows you like 20-40 to level health and melee, and pretty good base stats to begin with.
I go to center caves, 2 in redwoods and floating island are best. Full ghillie, bug repellant, sacrificial sheep, chainsaw, sleeping bags, preserving salt. Use wyvern wing flap your target to safe area make sure bat is just above character level. Kill that ovis with chainsaw! Place sleeping bag just in case.. Put taming mutton in inventory with half stack of salt. Rest of salt and mutton into wyvern. Ghillie up! Bug spray! Walk slow! Stand under feed, do not move. Stand there for 5 mins(might be shorter but dang its long) it goes faster after that first bite. Keep track of repellent back away slow and reapply if needed! Perfect tame every time!
My fiance and I started calling mega rabies the corona virus. It wouldn't go away until we stayed so far apart from each. So, if you get this "corona virus", remember to social distance from your tribemates to stand a chance against it.
On Raganorok I had just tamed a pteradon at the Viking bay, I flew over the mountain with my pteradon to the castle I landed on the top of it and all of a sudden I get swarmed by onycs and since my pteradon had no stam we got swarmed and my pteradon “Perry” was killed and I tried to avenge him with my crossbow but was killed! RIP Perry
Things to bring
1.) Bug repellant
2.) Flak/Chitin Armor (or higher)
3.) Spiked walls (wood or metal is fine)
4.) A handy ranged weapon (Rifle, SG, Fab. Pistol, AR, etc.)
5.) Narcotics (If ur looking into taming something)
6.) A durable pike (Doesn’t have to be apprentice or higher)
7.) Food and Water (duh)
8.) Tames that allow knock back (not needed btw)
9.) Your confidence to face these annoying fu-
If you have all of these then you’re set to explore the lava caves. And whatever you do, don’t fricken die.
Honestly, they are not good tames (my opinion), they are a passive tame that is a "shoulder animal" but u cant put them on or shoulder, they just follow you, so they easily get stuck and u lose them.
Some people say that they are good for defending bases, hum.... They can be, but i think there are loads of other animals that are much better at doing this.
They dont farm sh#t.
They dont have any special atk ou abilitys.
They are small so u cant mount, but big enough so u cant put them on your shoulder, etc.
For me they dont serve any porpouse besides pissing u off in caves.
Iffff they got a buff, maybe it will be a nice tame, especialy if u can put it on your shoulder and have the ability to make the other cave creatures not agro on u, like the spider, arthro, etc.
But the way it is now, i think its useless
(Sorry for grammar mistakes)
I have 8 very high level bats protecting my Dino pen and during an offline raid on me the bats swarmed the three raiders and managed to kill all three of them. The had journeyman Flak and mastercraft weaponry. So in the near future I will be taming many more of them
