Prime Achatina

20181123204357 1

A Prime Achatina next to a normal one for scale.

Prime Achatina is decently defensive, doesn't get a saddle but can wear player helmets. It produces six times the Achatina Paste than the normal Achatina, and holds up to 450. Killing a wild Prime Achatina, a small amount of prime chitin is obtained when harvested.

  • Boss Arena Access = Yes

  • K.O Taming = Yes

  • Passive Tame = No

  • Taming Food = Sweet Veggie Cake

  • Produces : Achatina Paste & Organic Polymer on wander.

Taming Strategy

The Prime Achatina is very easy to tame, with 1 dart being enough (depends on the level), but it is very hard to get them out of the swamp alive. The HP of wild Prime Achatina's is very low (usually around 1000), so finding and knocking one out is easy, but getting it back to your base alive is hard.

Method 1: Pick it up with a Quetzal and bring it back to a taming pen.

Method 2: Clear the area that surrounds where the Achatina is before trying to tame one. 

Prime Archaeopteryx

A Prime Dung Beetle next to a normal one for scale.

High defense and can wear player helmets. Has a LMB, RMB and C (Ranged poison conal attack) attack. Good for Stone gathering. The X key spawns a handful of random level normal dung beetles.

After Tame Abilities

Prime Dung Beetle has a good amount of HP, defense, and has a multiple-poison projectile breath attack which generates torpor. The Right click also deals heavy torpor damage. Can be used without worry of drowning similar to Rock Elemental to farm underwater. Be careful as if you get stuck underwater you cannot get out without walking up a valid path!

Prime Jerboa

20181123204706 1

A Prime Jerboa next to a normal one for scale.

Low HP but can wear player helmets. Can do a decent jump. Produces baby food on wander.

  • Boss Arena Access = Yes
  • K.O Taming = Yes
  • Passive Tame = Level 15 (With the help of Ghillie Armor and/or Cactus Broth )
  • Taming Food = Rockarrots, or Xeno Kibble
  • Produces : Baby Herbivore Food & Baby Carnivore Food

After Tame Abilities

Prime Jerboa produces baby food on wander. However, since Prime Jerboas are breedable, leaving male and female Prime Jerboas on wander will reproduce babies. This is compounded by the issue that the new Prime Jerboa are born with a stack of Herbivore food and on wander. There's a possibility of the server crashing given sufficient time, as say a tribe is away for the weekend. This can make Tribes look like posers for the over population title. It is advisable to only allow wander for a specific gender so it will not reproduce babies. ​Note: Tame one of these early on : some dino, like bosses, will ONLY eat Baby Herbivore Food or Baby Carnivore Food after tame.

Prime Monkey

20181123204752 1

Prime Microraptor

20181123204852 1

A Prime Microraptor next to a normal one for scale.

A Prime Microraptor would normally be quite a scary concept, but seems to lack the ability to knock a player out while in the wild. It flies fast and can carry small creatures.

Prime Troodon

20181123204910 1

A Prime Troodon next to a normal one for scale.

A Prime Troodon is terrifying, have good healthpools, not very noticable, and summons regular Troodons that inflict torpor (server maximum wild level) that have the usual agressive behavior, damage reductions and pack damage bonuses, as well as the huge torpor gain and stamina loss. It is better to keep eyes open for these without having a good defensive mount.

  • Taming Food = N/A

Prime Ant

20181123204419 1

A Prime Titanomyrma next to a normal one for scale.

A Prime Ant is a good source of chitin. It will not have any summons with it, it doesn't have much health, or do very much damage, it does inflict heavy torpor, but you should be fine to take one down with a good-level tame.

  • Boss Arena Access = Manticore only
  • K.O Taming = No
  • Passive Tame = Level 65
  • Taming Food = Spoiled Meat

Prime Titanoboa

20181123204927 1

A Prime Titanoboa next to a normal one for scale.

A Prime Titanoboa is a very difficult challenge as they inflict massive amount of torpor, and they can replace the regular Titanoboas that you might find in caves/dungeons. This makes the caves an even more dangerous place than before, as a Prime Titanoboa will almost always knock you out in one attack if it reaches you with the amount of torpor that they do. They do however take headshot multipliers, so use that to your advantage, grappling to the ceiling is highly reccomended. Be extra careful as it can climb most terrain.

  • Boss Arena Access = Yes
  • K.O Taming = No
  • Passive Tame = Yes
  • Taming Food = Any FERTILIZED  eggs. Bigger eggs give more taming, must be dropped from player inventory
