So as the title said, I find this boss fight an absolute unfair pain and would like to discuss it. I entered the boss fight with my best pair of flak, a rock drake with 3k+ Stam and 40k hp and an ascendant saddle with 133 armor, 18 megalos each with ascendant saddles 40k hp and each dealing 4k with their primary, and a heavily leveled reaper king. I had a pump action shotgun with 300+ damage on it and just under 2k durability and 800 slugs along with shadow stakes and med brews. So you may be thinking I have everything I could possibly need right? NO, and If I had to guess I wasn't even close. Each tentacle took roughly 3 reloads to take down (14 shots each) and dealth 200-400 damage to my drake even with the great saddle. On top of that, each of the orbs DESTROYED my armor and a good chunk of health leaving me naked before the nameless even started spawning, I later got 2 shot by the orbs as he was roughly half hp and turned of the game. This, in my opinion, is absolute bs. I play solo and can't get other tribe members to help so I'm just screwed unless I can reload to the save I made before the fight and perform a miracle. This could entirely be a skill issue but I don't think I was playing all the bad and it was just a combination of constant orbs, WAY too bulky tentacles, reaper slow, and the stupid electric attack that just made it a migraine followed by a stupid death. Am I the only one who went through this or something similar? I say we scale him down more for singleplayer before abb comes out on ASA to make him less of a hassle, such as making the tentacles weaker as to not survive 15k worth of damage. Tldr: Alpha Rockwell on aberration is too strong and obnoxious and deserves a nerf, sincerely a disgruntled ark player
I wrote up an idea I had, it's basically Rockwell's first few moments after joining the Element Hivemind. The titans speaking to the new, powerful arrival. The Titans and The Madman Just wanted to share and get some people's thoughts on it!
Artist : Lapiz Lazuli This dino came to fruition because I want it to work in Aberration and have it be like Rock Drake really. Rock Drake could have been a real world dino, it's a feather lizard after all. So I went with obviously a real life dino that had adapted to Aberration, the idea behind it is that it used to be a light pet that went radioactive and got bigger and weird abilities to adapt to the environment. It learned to defend itself down there against nameless and reapers but it's not at the top of the food chain and likes to work with rock drakes. Common Name : Ubirajara Species : Ubirajara Ubatus Time : Early Cretaceous Diet : Carnivore Temperament : Curious Wild : Ubirajara is an absolute stunning beast. It is a medium sized theropod with appendices emerging from around its shoulders. It looks like it's either hardened flesh similar to keratin or bones that have some radioactive components to them. Watching Ubirajara in the wild is simply astounding given what it can do with them, it can really manipulate it as it wishes, it looks like it is modulable and can change form based on what it's needing. I've seen some project their radioactive purple fleshed and make sort of ropes with them, catching other species to eat them. Domesticated : They seem to like light, leaving in this secluded dark place might have not changed their instincts, whenever they see light they will rush toward it. This has really made me curious after seeing them enter in contact with one of the light pets they even became luminous themselves, lighting the whole place up even wider and bigger. If you let it play with one of your light pet it seems like it could become interested in joining you, they don't see much light after all down there. I am sure that if you were to tame one they would provide valuable help in lots of different regards. Those ropes thing they seem to make could probably be used as structure, or they could help you catch dinos in a purple net and drag them or even pick some dinos up. Taming : For taming I had the idea of having to throw one of your light pets to it and have it let it play by picking it up with one of its sort of tentacle while keeping it safe from all the dangers in the red zone. Utilities & powers : What I had in mind for this beast is that the thing on their back kind of works like bulbasaur's vines or attack on titan's (warhammer). There are infinite ideas to go from there, as I've stated they could throw them and grow some right back up with the help of congealed gas in its inventory, if it runs out of congealed gas it might not produce them anymore. And then you can create ziplines, glowsticks (you could throw some ball and it'd work just like it), the tentacles could mimic even pickaxe and work a bit like a mantis given that'd you'd have two of them to use, maybe you're picking up a small dino with one and the other is used to hit. And if you use a light pet it could even have the tentacles be charged with electricity and have additionnal effects. The idea is also that light pets are important because they directly buff the Ubirajara. If you have a light pet using its light the Ubirajara will also glow and emit an even bigger light (it won't work unless charged by a light pet) and it'd make also everything it shoots light, light ziplines that glow in the dark etc Even creating like some sort of "traps" I had in mind like if you stuck one of the rope to a rock and then to another rock and then you made this 3 times you could probably block something the size of a parasaur because it won't attack, the structures for balance reason could : not have a lot of them / really small uptime / really easy to destroy it could also even using pickaxes climb the walls with it. Then again I had in mind either it uses the tentacles to mimick the form of a pickaxes or you put pickaxes in its inventory like a mantis and it uses them by holding them. There are multiple ideas that can come up with tentacles like that, possibilities are endless !
