ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
How do I kill a rock elemental? rock elemental battling strategies in ARK: Survival Evolved.
On Scorched Earth, in the desert, THESE GUYS CAN RUN.
Yeah here's a tip don't try and get flint from this thing with your anky lemme tell ya
Direwolves can sniff them out. Up so more can see
If you are unsure if a rock is a disguised golem or not, a spyglass shows their name and level even when disguised. Also, when disguised, the rocks often move slightly as you get close, re settling onto the terrain.
"aah why are you shooting me with cannonballs noooooooo"
If you see a rock 🪨 fall frome the sky it was a golem spawning so be carefull ! Hope this was help full
REX & TAPEJARA TEK SADDLES CAN EFFECTIVELY KILL ROCK GOLEMS UPDOOT SO BOBS AND NOT BOBS KNOW HOW TO KILL THES E DOUCHEBAGS
Don’t get them mixed up with a rock.
What will happen will not be good
There’s a lava golem !you can find lava golems in volcano caves
Rock Elementals hate spike walls. They will get stuck on them and destroy your entire base.
fjordur players! cant find one? well you can actually find a R rock elemental (lava like rock elemental) in the magmasaur pit. if you dont know where that it its at the south end of the fire wyvern trench. it should spawn not in the lava but the trail you used to get in here in the magmasaur part. idk but i think they spawn in the 3 sections before you get in the actual magmasaur pit part. be wary about the onyc or magmasaurs!
Oh a rock, I'll hit that with my pick for some stone. Oh hello mr rock element.........
There is a smaller version of these guys called the Rubble Golem in scorched earth caves. Unfortunately they are not tameable, they would made a really good tame though.
Unless you are unmounted (rock throw can OHKO unarmored survivors), the Rock Elemental is really easy to run away from, it’s incredibly slow and loses interest in the survivor quickly once you get away a good distance.
Killing one is a bit tricky without a Giga (which ignores the Elemental’s armor). You have a few options however…
1. Bleed. Thylas, Carnos, etc… Bleed ignores HP and armor and can kill the elemental, just be aware you probably won’t get any XP this way unless you kill the Elemental with regular (non bleed) damage from an attack.
2. Explosives. I wouldn’t advise this without a crap ton of resources or a high quality RPG. Elemental’s take full damage from explosives but their massive base HP pool means this will still take a while.
DO NOT USE A TAMED ROCK ELEMENTAL. Like the Giga, tamed Elementals are weaker than their wild counterparts even when saddled. Unless your Elemental is a much higher lvl with a very strong saddle, do not even think about fighting fire with fire.
I had a mob of 8 scorpions kill a golem by having the golem walk over them and get suspended in the air above them since there were so many scorpions, he eventually died, he could not attack.
All rock elementals have the same rock skin when disguised. It is a bright yellow boulder and is very noticeable against dark mountains. Keep your distance, as they can aggro on to you when you get close.
First time I saw one of these I was looking in my inventory and suddenly it just stepped on me and squished me
If you kill them using a thyla’s gnashed ability then you can harvest their body with an anky. Killed a level 95 and just got 198 stone, 114 Crystal, 134 obsidian, 123 oil, and 78 metal from it. Hope this is useful to someone!! Have a nice day!!! :)
I lost my wyvern to these guys :(
How to spot them:
If you go to the mountains on SE, were golems spawn more frequently, you can easily tell golems apart from rocks as they look SANDY compared to the grey or shiny metal rocks.
In the dunes or else where the golems have better camouflage, apart from being more textured, either use a Parasaur or spyglass to confirm your suspicions.
Also if you see a rock on the horizon ‘Fall’ like creatures spawn, then take it as red it’s a golem.
