ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Incase you didn't know, rock elementals take headshots. If you hit anywhere else it doesn't count. Don't waste your cannon balls. If you can't get it straight on, aim lower because aiming higher isnt normally within its hit box.

It's a bit silly that kibble tames it a lot better than rocks or sulfur because even in the dossier it says that it lives off of absorbing nearby rocks and minerals. So mabey they should make it so you have to feed them a rare mineral like obsidian what if they made it so you could tame one fast and with high effectiveness by giving one a few hundred or few thousand obsidian . or what if there kibble was made out of a combination of ores and minerals .
They should make the boulder throw able to knock out other rock elementals.
