pve NEW server Manticore discussion

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

So I've breeded a rex line quite fast which I multiplied in a group with a yuty which should be able to take down manticore without too much problems. Little did I know that Manticore had a unpdate (not in the patch notes, no communication about it). So before you attempt manticore on the new server and lose 18 rex's and yuty like me here's some things to take note of:

- Manticore can no longer be trapped 

- Manticore doesn't land as often as it used too (in the 20 minutes we were in there it landed about 4 times) 

- Manticore was hit by a rock golem on the head and now he flies into a wall and keeps flying up and down there (vid will be online soon) 

 

When you have a group of rex's that have legacy amounts of melee (1000%+) you should be able to do manticore in the same manner, it will just take you 8x as long as it used to. I still need to test if you are able to trap manticore with more people (like for the dragon you need 6+ people to trap it). If you have any other suggestions/idea's on how to do the manticore, feel free to share experiences and ideas

Colisions for dragon & Manticore were turned off in the latest update, you can't trap it.

We have killed beta Manticore several times recently (about 5 times).  You are correct, you cannot pin it.  It takes much longer than it used to and we have only tried with 6 experienced rex riders.  The Rex's were not particularly talented ~500 melee.  On a couple of occasions (but not each time) we have had one survivor firing guns at the manticore while in the air.  It seems to land much more often in the last 5 minutes of arena time than it does early in the match.  I know at the halfway point we never have it halfway killed seemingly.  Somehow we always catch up.

Maybe it lands more because it ends up running out of stam at the end?

Anyway like Jobo said, it's stressful but ends up working. For alpha it would probably be beneficial to specifically only level melee on the boss rexes, as the manticore does very poor damage and your greatest enemy is time, and legacy-tier damage at the detriment of health would be useful.

i didn't, i used to farm it with rexs in hard solo before they made it land almost never, and back when i was in PvE.

Now im in PvP so i have 0 need to farm this easy boss, even tho its a nice pile of elements.

Here is a pic of my friend who still plays PvE and did it about 3days ago. (End, if you see this, hey mate :D)

Seems most of the wyvs were hatched lvl 150.

Manticore is the buggiest fight. We farm it quite regularly and normally we can get it to land by firing a few shots into it or spreading out thin and not move. It lets him pick a target and usually land. God forbid you have an unmounted spectator which will cause him to ping pong around wildly as he tries to aggro you or the spectator or have a dino on the obelisk platform that someone left there, which causes a similar to the unmounted spectator.

what is the best strategy for Ragnarok arena and what stat dinoes do I need to do that with just 2 people in a tribe (I have ascendant saddles for them tho)?!

I doubt you can do it with just 2, but maybe in easy yeah.

How to take Wyvern to manticore? What status is good?

Same way you would take rex to manticore. have them next to the obelisk when u start it.

Stats, i wouldnt really know, but i guess at least 10k hp, maybe 15k if you care about them, rest in damage. Maybe some stam if youre going to ride them, if you dont ride them you wont need stam. you could also take a yuty and/or a daeodon, 8 lightning wyvs should still be fine for the fight in Hard.
