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.
The scorpions deal torpor over 10 seconds, and while wild ones can stack it so however long they like, tamed scorpions only stack twice to a max of 20 seconds of torpor, so best bet is to hit and run with this thing ir tank whatever you're trying to tame. I'd put damage and health/speed depending on how you plan to tame things with this.
Much better to use since they are also breedable btw, but you can't pick up the eggs from my experience so breed them in very shallow water or near a few air conditioner units since they require a bit of cold temp to hatch.
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
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.)
Scorpions make a great early seafaring mount if you hold the jump key ( space bar by default) a scorpion will float above the water allowing you to get past most Puranas without being attacked, this can be extremely useful for crossing dangerous rivers or even oceans.
Very effective as a battle mount/travelling companion. I mostly play on single player so an effective companion is vital. I tamed my Kopiona when she was level 32...she's at 62 now with 200% melee damage, over 800 health and quite a few surprising kills notched into her tail.
Some noteworthy accomplishments (without my assistance) are:
-1 Carno killed (lvl 30)
-1 Spino (lvls 3)
-1 pack of 4 Raptors (lvls 36, 24, 18, and 50)
-Survived a Rex attack (lvl 24) after I had died with minimal health loss.
Coupled with its torpor inducing attacks, it's also great as a taming mount.
