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 ...
i was with my pterodactyl or pterodan and a swarm attacked me and i was out of stamina, they were all high level and i died along with my mount. i then came with my Sabertooth requis and i killed all but one and right when i killed the last requis died. Rip requis :(
Bats now deserve some new levels of respect. Like their fellow Cave dweller the Megalania, they have a chance to infect you with Mega Rabies (though only a chance rather the 100% like Megalania)
They are easy to spot and avoid using bug repellent. But due to the new Biological weapon element of them. Engage at a distance where possible. Fight them with sword and pike only as a last resort. Make sure you have a stock of Antidotes or Wyvern Milk before any Splunking
I didn't see any tip on fighting these annoying creatures. I would recommend carrying a shot gun on you. Preferably an Apprentice or higher. Many people like the pump action for the bigger clip, but simple shitty does more damage. Way until close for more damage dealt.
Be rly carefull.. in caves these guys are extremly Annoying to encounter, they Will have a 10% chance to infect you, when they did you are Almost guarenteed to die. If you and your tribemate are infected, stay away from eachother. The only way to survive is have lots of healing brews or the antitode.... Screw onycs they destroyed my cave experience...
