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.
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.
Careful of their swarm in Lava caves they will gank you and quickly surround you and push u just little on every hit ... Make sure you have wall behind you and stand with your back against it while fighting them ... Or else Lava ...
You can absolutely tame them through a wall still. Just finished a 145 tame with mutton, because kibble does not work. Build a 3x1 hallway with no walls on either end, agro run through place a wall in front of it, run around and wall it off. Barely derender, feed through the wall. 21 mutton for a 150, 4.5% per feed. ♡Hz
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
