Oculus

Description

Reminiscent in shape of the terrestrial octopus, this weird mollusc floats at ground level on the Amatheran winds. It can discharge a powerful bolt of electricity, combined with a putrid stench, making it wise to avoid in risk of great discomfort. It feeds on decaying matter, which has given it nicknames like the "Rot Pod" or the "Harvester of Decay".

The Creatures section is currently under construction and this process will take some time to complete. The work is being done by volunteers with limited time, so please bear with us while we add the data. If you can provide any information that is currently missing, please post in the thread to let us know.

While this construction period is ongoing, you will be able to access the old Bestiary section which is archived in a sub-forum of the Creatures section. Each mob thread in Creatures contains a link to the relevant Bestiary thread and to the Entropedia page, so if you are looking for information that isn't yet available in the Creatures thread, please use the links provided at the bottom of the first post in the thread.

Thank you for your patience.

I took a hit from an Alpha and confirmed that Viking does not decay. Since the only damage type that Viking has no protection against is Electric, this means the damage type (at least on Alpha) is 100% Electric.

Is it just me or do these critters only give dodge (and profession related) gains even when being encountered in close combat?

Now that I see that the Tide Water Cavern spawns are not mentioned here:

The cavern is located north east of cape corinth (should be at 62500,89800, but I'm not on calypso atm). There are basically two (untaxed ofc) spawns of ultra fast respawning oculus in there. First is mature-old the other one has provider and a bit upwards.

Just enter the cave and stay left until you reach the cave that is beneath water (sonic squids in there). Swim through that part (it consists of three separate chambers). Again stay left when you leave the flooded chambers.

You will see 2 snarg spawns on your way which can be easily circumvented.

Happy hunting.

Speaking of oculus where is that VR support now that it's out. It would bring us a lot of new players who want to try a VR mmo with their oculus rift

I only found pupugi in that cavern :(
Then you probably just ran in circles or something. There are snargs, oculus and sonic squids down there as well. Was there only a couple weeks ago so would be very surprised if all other mobs are gone except pupugi.

It's a very tricky cave, every time i go there i found a new spawn.

Also Tsk Tsk and Razortooth there.
