Meet your new favorite creature! These things are awesome, they scale similarly to thylas and are bigger than them, they both can turn invisible but the female can also turn teammates invisible, when they attack they fill a meter which when filled lets you perform a more powerful attack by holding down the attack button, the can also do a dash attack that zooms through a bunch of creatures stunning them but not dealing alot of damage,the males can do a roar that makes things stronger and stuff, they can charge a jump that ZOOOMS over everything, if they are in the air long enough they’ll do a cool animation which looks even cooler with the particles from having full meter, these guys also have some awesome natural color regions, i just got one that looks like spider man, these guys also move slow enough that the game can load but fast enough to not feel slow, these guys have some of the best animations in the game and they just feel alive, oh and these guys get a pack boost and a hydration buff that occurs when they go in water, overall, one of the best dinos in the game and definitely one of the coolest.
Since Shadowmanes have eight attacks/abilities, let me walk you through how to use them on a Playstation!
Primary attack: this one’s easy, press the right trigger.
Teleport/lightning attack: double click the left trigger near a creature.
Teleport attack (with radar ability): hold the left trigger down until a target is found, then press it again.
High jump: hold down X until crosshairs appear. The longer you hold the higher and further the jump.
Camouflage: click the right joystick.
Charged attack: hold down the right trigger. (You can only use this attack when the bar at the bottom of the screen is full and the shadowmane’s eyes are glowing. If you deal the final blow with the attack, it will automatically recharge.)
Roar pack bonus (male): double click the right joystick.
All tame cloak (female): double click the right joystick.
This creature is the crown jewel of ark creatures, as it is fast, strong, has good weight, can take a hit, and cloaks and swims incredibly fast. As well as everything listed above, they have a dash attack that hits multiple targets, and gets a crazy mate boost. There more, but I’m tired of typing how good shadowmanes are🙂
Both male and female can cloak themselves, but female can also cloak all dinos in an area around it, while the males cannot. The males can instead give a courage effect I imagine is similar to Yutys, but I don’t know for sure. Both male and female also have a powerful charged jump, and a dash attack where they teleport between a group of creatures and damage them, and also stun them for a couple seconds
