Moschops – official ark survival evolved wiki physical science electricity review worksheet

Moschops Cibumutante in the wild is a lazy, cowardly creature that typically lives in the Island’s forests, primarily making its home among the great redwoods of the western regions. It survives by being extremely flexible in its eating habits and completely averse to fighting. It never starves, since it can eat just about anything. It runs at the slightest provocation but is still often preyed upon.

What makes Moschops particularly interesting is what it can be trained to do with its eating habits. With a versatile palate and tough teeth, Moschops can be tamed for a unique ability: over time it can be accurately taught exactly which things to gnaw, increasing the likelihood of harvesting the specific resource its master desires. For example, teach it to prioritize chewing Prime Meat, and Prime Meat will be easier to harvest from the flesh it consumes. Likewise for rare plants materials, and so forth!

Just don’t expect Moschops to protect you, though! Even after taming, it will quickly flee when enemies are nearby. Regardless of being fed well, increasing its strength, or how much affection, you shower on it, Moschops retains its inherent cowardly nature! Its lack of combat might deter the use of this companion but the ability to ride Moschops while making use of its diverse harvesting is a rare treat.

Despite its appearance, the Moschops is not a dinosaur or even a relative, but much more closely related to mammals as it is a Therapsid, or mammal-like ancestor. It has a barrel-shaped body to hold the large gut necessary for its varied diet with sprawled-out forelimbs and a short tail. Perched on its body is a short, thick neck with a broad head.

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed. Taming [ edit | edit source ]

It seems that Moschops can be tamed both ways. Although the knock-out variant behaves normally (except for the random food) it will not eat when the hunger drops the usual amount. This is maybe due to higher individual food values or the knock-out taming isn’t intended.

Ranged weapons or powerful mounts that can kill the Moschops in one swipe are recommended, as Moschops are very fast runners and keeping up with them is very difficult. Alternatively you could use a fast mount to hound them or shoot from, such as a Raptor or a Parasaur.

The Moschops itself poses little threat, unless if you steal one of their eggs when you are low leveled and surrounded by a group of angry Moschops, but the biggest danger of Moschops is chasing them and encountering more aggressive animals. Beware as when cornered they might occasionally attack you, usually taking players off guard with their huge damage for a "passive" creature.

• Each point invested will increase both the likelihood of gathering a particular resource (relative to other drops, "weight") and the quantity of the resource gathered (e.g. 200% is twice the base yield). It is currently unknown if the bonus from Harvesting Levels stacks additively or multiplicativly with Melee Damage.
