To the people who “say be well prepared”, or, “they are a nightmare”, well they are annoying but cmon they ain’t that bad like fr, all you need is leather armer or flak and have a Baryonyx or a kangaroo or even if your that low level just get a dang spider because they don’t get aggro by other the cave creaturess and in land by most of the creatures so just have a gun or a pike just in case, good luck but I don’t think you will need it unless your going in the lava cave well you need lots of luck.
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 ...
It says these are 'non - violent' but my god! They are not! I found 6 of them inside a cave. These started attacking me on sight, I'm a beginner so I fled the cave and outside was my ptera on attack target mode and they began to fight and they took my ptera so high in the sky that it couldn't hear my whistles and finally they killed my lvl 60 ptera while I stood down helplessly and watched ptera getting killed.
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
