Description[edit | edit source]
The shaleback resembles a hybrid of a gorilla and turtle. While the gorilla determines its pose, movement and behaviour, the turtle provides a thick, shell-like and scaly dermal condition.
Notes[edit | edit source]
The shaleback is territorial of some sort, it will wander around minding its' own business as long as you leave it alone. Step too close and it will try to smash you.
The shaleback is a pretty common creature and one of the first to be encounterd by players. It makes a good sparring partner for training shield blocking and dodging.
Try to kite shalebacks into 1 vs 1 fights, they are good sources of meat and experience for low level exiles.
It builds nests around beaches near the spawn making them one of the first animals the exile runs into. You will usually find 3 shaleback eggs in a nest of a shaleback, which are consumable and very effective, and can be stolen and shaleback babies (mostly 3) can be slain without effort, dropping feral flesh. The breeding behaviour seems to be adapted by the turtle part of the beast, as they do not seem to protect their nests actively. If an adult shaleback is around, it will watch you slay its babies as long as you stay far enough from it.
