Arthropluera – official ark survival evolved wiki k electric bill payment online


The fact that this creature exists is enough to give me nightmares. Like the island’s other Arthropods, Arthropluera Felsanguis has become much larger than I might have believed possible. It’s a very aggressive hunter, but prefers to eat meat after it has rotted for some time, and will voraciously seek out such delicacies.

Arthropleura’s blood has a very low pH, to the point that it can dissolve many materials. This acidic blood splashes back on anything that directly attacks it, weakening the durability of weapons and hurting attackers. Many creatures thusly refuse to prey on Arthropleura, fearing this unique defense. If that wasn’t enough, Arthropleura also keeps a small reservoir of blood ready to spit at its prey.

Like most of the arthropods on the island, Arthropleura is simple minded and relatively easy to tame. It is an almost entirely military mount, useful mostly for attacking at a distance. Thanks to its unique defenses, whether hunting or warring, Arthropleura is generally safe from all but the largest of creatures.

The Arthropleura felsanguis is one of the island’s most nightmarish native invertebrates – a predatory, heavily armored centipede longer than three men tall. Preferring carrion over live prey, these huge arthropods inhabit the deeper caves of the island, devouring bats and other invertebrates. Their greenish blood has an unusually low pH, a trait that, by self-rupturing delicate vessels in its head, the Arthropleura can use as a rather gruesome defense mechanism.

Arthropluera is tamed non-violently, rather than through the use of tranquilizers. Since it is a naturally aggressive creature, you must first apply Bug Repellant in order to keep it from attacking you on sight. The Arthro will not be tameable if it is trying to attack another creature or is feeding on a corpse, so you must remove any such distractions from the area, or lure the Arthro to a more secluded area.

Once you have the repellent applied and distractions dealt with, place the food you wish to feed it in the right-most slot of your hotbar. Then, carefully approach the Arthro until the button prompt to feed it appears – it will eat the piece of food you give it and a taming bar will appear. You must then wait until it becomes hungry enough to be fed again, and repeat the process.

If you accidentally get too close and touch the Arthro, it will become aggressive and attack, despite the repellant. In order to continue taming it, you must get far enough away for it to lose interest in you. If you go away from it for too long and aren’t using broth of enlightenment to tame it; it’s taming bar will go down faster than you can feed it, making it untameable. Be careful of its spit attack when fleeing, as it will deal significant damage to your armor if it hits.

Arthropleura appear in caves, so wandering above ground will keep any player safe. However, in caves, they become a very deadly adversary. Melee weaponry and armor simply vanish in any battle with the creature due to its corrosive and acidic blood.

To avoid the loss of your armor and melee weapons, stay as far away from it as possible, but keep in mind it can still launch acidic projectiles. Be alert at all times when in a battle, as the cave ecosystems often bring other hazards. One risky fighting method is to keep backing away while using a ranged weapon that won’t kill you. Back jump when it is about to bite and side jump to avoid spit attacks. If you are mobile enough, you will dodge his attacks.

Melee attacks against the Arthropluera will significantly reduce weapon durability and cause damage to the player. One well-aimed shot from the creature will strip a player of his/her armor(or bring it very close to breaking point). Make sure you spot them in advance, so they do not get the first hit in. Their spit can also hit you while riding a mount and can still break your armor, the spit does a good bit more damage without armor on.

Base defender: During a raid, Arthroplurera can hold off unmounted raiders before they begin planting explosives. With the armor corroding acid against unmounted players, Arthropluera will play a vital role in raid defense. (Level up Melee Damage and Movement Speed).

• Arthropleura tamed in the Lower South Cave are unable to exit due to the invisible wall at the entrance/exit. If you wish to tame one to bring back with you, find one elsewhere. (This is outdated information as of Testing on 03/09/2017. The Arthropleura can be taken out of the Lower South Cave now, however it does take some time and effort to guide it out. Setting to lowest follow distance helps with this. Also there is a crystal formation near the exit hanging from the ceiling that must be broken to allow them to exit the cave.)

• The Dossier says that Arthropluera is "…An almost entirely military mount…" But next to the icon that represents it as being rideable there are question marks. – These question marks might represent the writers query as to whether or not the Arthropluera is capable of being saddled, not necessarily the capability of one being ridden.

• It can be picked up by Argentavis, so you can lure it outside the caves and move it to a safer spot. Most of the time it doesn’t move while taming (like the Dung Beetle,) but some times it will. To prevent this, put it in a box made of dino doors with 4 wood floors
