Hands down one of the most under rated tames. Once past level 100 they are pretty useful for almost everything. They are fast and can nip in and out of things quickly and have the poison to get you out of sticky situation - one of my go to land running creatures
These things are the bane of my existence. I was doing a perfect 150 allo tame in the redwoods, and I was off gathering prime. I get the notification, “You have tamed Allosaurus, level 150!” Two seconds later I get another notification. “Your Allosaurus level 150 was killed by a 120 Pulminoscorpius.” I run back to the taming spot, and sure enough, there is 4 Pulminos staring at me. I bola’d them and put campfires beneath them, and then lit the campfires. I ensured that they died a slow, painful death.
I tamed my eerie male scorpion on ark mobile during the eerie server event inside the poison cave. It was the best choice I ever made as he is now guarding my hatchery.
On mobile I recommend the following for stats if you plan to use a scorpion as a guard.
Speed is good at 230%
Melee at about 500% (just to keep those nasty wild Dinos spawning in your base in line)
Health about 5k (scorpions can be very easily killed if they don’t have good health in them.)
