Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Astrocetus is one of the Creatures that dwell in the Lunar Biome.

The Astrocetus is considered to be a high tier tame because of its unique ability to warp through hyperspace.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Astrocetus is a whale that floats through space.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]


The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

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.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Astrocetus has the ability to warp to its destination, similar to a hyperspace jump. This warp will also take anything within its vicinity with it and can go through Creatures, Structures, and natural formations.

The Astrocetus Saddle provides the rider with three gun turrets as well as having a bomber mode that is powered by its natural space energy that it converts into bombs to destroy enemies below.
