Everyone says this thing is rare, but I ran into two of them with in 10 mins apart off the coast of herb island around 85ish,90ish. Recommend your tames have high health because this thing ripped apart my dinos.
When Ark says that the unicorn is the rarest creature. That’s a lie. At least the unicorn spawns. This thing is supposed to. I have spent the last week living in a pearl cave in their spawn hotspot and have not seen evidence of a single one. Reply to me @Tofuna
When not having this guy yet and you hop on your mosa, there’s a high chance they’ll suddenly spawn a couple yards away from you. What’s scary is that this guy, although should stay only on the Deep Ocean region is able to cross the barrier (on mobile at least, I do not know for the others) and is as fast as an encumbered(not red, not really encumbered, as in not even over 90% encumbered) mosasaurus. Wherein in mobile, the plesiosaurs are the fastest(it seems) with mosas second and this guy. Not even a speed-trained icthy will be able to outrun it. All are as fast or even faster than the giga on land. Scary if you have no plan to tame it. Can grab mosas, nearly every creature except the basilosaurus and some others. Don’t escape up, escape linearly from where you came from. Let it get stuck between every rock you know. I encountered my first tuso a few days ago. Traumatized by the speed, good thing’s I’m on my mosa and ran away. It is way, way bigger than a damn mosa. Seriously scary.
When attacking, use Basilosaurus whales, they cannot be grabbed, be aware that once low health, the squid will flee and emit ink, and debuff you by making all nearby creatures aggro you. I almost lost a 265 basilosaurus to 4 dunkleos and 10 megalos that boxes me into a star formation.
Today, I Lost A Brave Soul. My Itchythosaurus Fought Brave. As the Squid Grabbed Him, I Watched My Dolphin Cry Out. As Soon as the Living Demon Was Done With My Itchy, He grabbed Me. One thing lead to another, I Lost Hard Work On A Pursuit, And My Best Itchy Friend.
For the ones saying they are rare and can’t find them they obviously didn’t actually take the time to look. Whenever I go around the whole ocean for red drops I always encounter at least 3-4 of them. So don’t be one of those guys. Take your time and actually use your eyes. Also if you’re going to fast like on a plesi mosa or ichthy then they could possibly not render in time. So take it slow and never sit still for too long.
Grabby Arms has many arms to grab you with. If you don't have a mount because Grabby Arms has already killed it it will grab you and begin shredding you with its spikey tentacles. If you have a grappling hook you can grab a nearby wall or the ocean floor and pull yourself away. This thing will break primitive scuba gear like a thatch dinosaur gate. Put your riot or flak gear back on before trying to make your escape. Your flippers are broken already.
