X mark.svg

The Manticore always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.

This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Manticore's natural spawn colors.

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]

Manticore (Gamma) (Easy)

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.

Combat[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

The floor of the arena is teeming with Deathworms. The Manticore will primarily fly about the arena shooting purple bolts in different directions at once while using its tail to inflict torpor. Near the end of the battle Rock Elementals start spawning along with Deathworms and can easily trap and kill your creatures.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • It is best to not leave the platform so you can avoid the Deathworms.
  • Kill the Deathworms in the arena first. Keep to ranged combat to avoid the worst of torpor damage. Try to run away from the Rock Elementals or bring a lot of explosive power.

Recommended Tames[edit | edit source]

NOTE that I used creatures that came from that map the boss was released on to make fair suggestions.

If you feel like adding creatures that's fair enough however don't add any that are exclusive to a Expansion Pack if those creatures aren't on the same corresponding map the boss is on or any free maps released with the base game. (ex. Velonasaur on The Island should not be suggested since you have to buy the Extinction expansion pack to get them and not everyone will be able to afford that Expansion Pack).

Unique creatures from maps like Ragnarok and Valguero and Expansion creatures that were used on that map (ex. Karkinos used on Valguero) however are exceptions since the players have instant access to them for free.

  • Wyvern Rushing can be used as a substitute to rush the Manticore instead of Rex Rushing, ontop of that due to their ability to fly they can more easily avoid the Deathworms and Rock Elementals that spawn.
  • A Yutyrannus or 2 (preferably mate boosted) should always be brought into any arena as it's one of if not the most valuable creature for Boss fights due to its courage roar ability and good stats making them a jack of all trades mount.
  • The Common strategy of Rex Rushing is almost always a good strategy for almost any boss due to their high health and damage.
  • If players are willing to put the effort into micromanaging their food the Daeodon can also be valuable due to their healing ability.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

  • Improper preparation of your tames can lead to disaster such as trying to mix fliers and land tames.
  • The Manticore can inflict large amounts of torpor with its tail, from which it can also shoot spikes like a Thorny Dragon. Be Careful! Torpor gained from these spikes can't be lowered with stimulant like normal torpor inflicting attacks unless it's on a human. Bring Stimulant and water for yourself.
  • The Manticore's slam attack can potentially damage a human, even if he/she is on a dino. Care must be taken when its landing.
  • The Deathworms in the arena will swarm any player or creature on the ground, which is especially dangerous to those that are unconscious from the Manticore's attacks.
  • The Rock Elementals can spring up for damage if a creature or player is close enough and that will trap a creature inside of it and it will be doomed.
  • The Deathworms' attacks have a large area of effect that can quickly drain the health of many of your creatures if they are close together.
  • Upon start of the encounter the Manticore can glitch in the air. For this reason, It's worth always bringing an Assault Rifle or a Pump Action Shotgun with some ammo to shoot the Manticore with. This seems to cause it to aggro you and un-glitch. However, be cautious when shooting unmounted as you may be targeted with a torpor attack.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

  • Though it is supposedly patched, it may still be possible to pin down the manticore with a pack of rexes. It also doesn't have one specific thing to be afraid of, unlike most bosses (The dragon with its bite, the Broodmother Lysrix with the spider summons, the Overseers transformations and ect.)
  • The Manticore has very low health and can go down very fast, but enough space must be available for it to land or it will spend a lot of time floating in the air. Ensure your tames are grouped and assign locations for them to move when they are not attacking, to give space for the Manticore to land.

Spotlight[edit | edit source]

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Manticore, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • The Manticore is a creature from Persian mythology.
  • The Manticore is a chimera, traditionally consisting of the body of a lion, the wings of a bat, the tail of a scorpion and a human face, although ARK's Manticore does not seem to have this last feature..
  • The name 'Manticore' roughly translates to 'Man-Eater'.
  • Since release of v294 Beta Manticore will unlock the Tek Dedicated Storage
  • A force tamed Manticore does not and will not obey whistles.
  • If spawned in the Manticore will be broken and not work well however it's not as bad as the Dragon.
