Scions are the heralds of their respective Guardian Deity. They are extremely strong creatures with unique elemental effects that make taking one down a serious challenge.
Scions are not tameable.
When killed, they drop extremely rare loot.
- Costumes for your creatures reflecting their element. (Winter = Snow Costume, Nature = Jungle Costume, Fire = Fire Costume).
- The treasure boxes always contain a set of each gem as well as some Xeno kibble. The Xeno kibble is a universal taming food that gives high affinity.
It is recommended to use a boss mount when dealing with Scions, but an Alpha Wyvern with a good saddle armor rating along with Blood Vials, Detox, and Wyvern Milk (to feed to your mount).
A titanosaur as a tank and several alpha dinos doing damage under good macro control is possible but it will take a long time having to use a lot of detox and blood vials for the tank.
Other possible strategies are mentioned on each Scion section.
Scion of WinterCan be found in Snow Biomes. They take the form of a Mammoth, Rhino or Chalicotherium. Drains stamina rapidly.
Going against Scion of Winter is a very straightforward encounter. It is probably the easiest to farm with boss tame, as it is possible to do a lot of special attacks before stamina is drained. Boss-tame attacks do not use stamina. The Scion does not inflict high damage, so you will find that this will be a go-to battle to farm element from. Make sure to bring blood vials, as well as wyvern milk for this fight.
Scion of NatureCan be found in Redwood Biome, and very rarely in jungle biomes. They take the form of a Direbear, Terror Bird, or Bigfoot. Inflicts a high amount of torpor.
Method 1: This is not a particularly difficult fight for a good boss-tamed creature, but it is necessary to have a stack of detox, as the torpor values will rack up very fast. Make sure to bring blood vials, as well as wyvern milk for this fight.
Method 2: Possible success of defeating Scion of Nature is using 2 manned high level Phoenixes or 1 high level Alpha Rex with blood vials. Make sure to bring blood vials, as well as wyvern milk for this fight.
Scion of Fire
Can be found in Volcanic Biome or the Jungle Biome. They take the form of an Argentavis, Direwolf, or Saber. Deals fire damage over time based on a percentage of maximum health.
Make sure to bring blood vials, as well as wyvern milk for this fight.
