Antlion not giving warnings

Recommended Posts

Arkhangels    1

After three summers, I can say for sure that of the three times that the antlion spawned, he only gave a warning twice on the first summer.
The other two times he spawned me and my friend were on the base and things simply started crumbling under us.
Also the second and only time he gave a warning on the first summer, the sinkholes appeared in less than 10 seconds, giving us no time to leave the base.


Is this a bug or the antlion doesn't always give warnings? The warning happening less than 10 seconds before the sinkhole is a normal behavior?
Regards

Enable screen shake or listen for audio clues. You shouldn't rely on the character quote because, as you said, doesn't give much time for escape.

Also note that you're meant to kill the Antlion or pay tribute to it, for doing otherwise has big (intended) consequences.

Does anyone know how the timer works? Do all trinkets buy you the same amount of time? It seems like if you give it one every other day you should be ok, but I'm not sure.

Here You are! Copied from DS wiki: http://dontstarve.wikia.com/wiki/Antlion

"For example, if one gives the Antlion a Hardened Rubber Bung, it would delay its attacks for a whole day. One should keep in mind that its rage timer cannot exceed 6 days, so players may need to contribute a hefty amount of items to it at least twice throughout Summer in order to never be attacked."

It is time consuming to fish for trinkets and not very effective, as I see from this chart... I better learn how to wreck this thing..

Question, does anybody have an idea of how much time crumbled ground circles stay before they disappear? Earthquakes happened right in my base once and it freaking stayed there up to mid winter wtf .. Is there like a proximity time counter like with the whales for getting bloated?

Another quote from wiki:

"Sinkholes cannot be removed by the player (as of yet) and will only begin to self-repair after about 20 days since they were formed, taking about 10 days to fully repair."

Hey, good news you guys!

In the latest update, you don't have too feed it it, just kill the darn beast!

If you can't do it yourself, I reccomend you call JimmyJam. He's a handy exterminator who removes pest antlions from any nearby desert. Just point!

Would you happen to have been doing any actions around the time that might have interrupted the warnings?

Well, I probably was, but I cannot be sure.

This is actually very good to know, since I am going into my second summer. Looks like I'm gonna have to kill it day one then :/
