The Whale is a tier 10 animal.
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
- Narwhals can evolve into whales.
- 48,000 XP is required for any of those animals to evolve into a whale.
- Whales do not evolve into any other animals, as they are one of the latest animals.
- Whales drop meat upon death.
- As a whale, friendly fire is turned off for pollock and all tier 1 to tier 5 animals, as well as bobbit worms: meaning you cannot damage them nor be damaged by them.
- Despite friendly fire being turned off for jellyfish, if you absorb them they will poison you.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Passive Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Attacks against you do not get increased by speed if you are using your active ability.
- Entering the ocean surface or arctic surface causes you to spit out all animals that you have absorbed.
- When near orcas, attack damage increases (good for killing orcas and other top tier animals except Giant Squid).
Active Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Clicking causes you to suck in all animals and food within a certain distance of you.
- You will absorb all animals that you cannot friendly fire.
- You will damage all animals that you can friendly fire.
Negative Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Your active ability replaces your ability to boost, meaning you cannot boost forward.
- Your active ability can suck in barbs (which damage and poison you) and snowballs (which stun you and make you slower).
- None of the food that you eat by using your active ability will regenerate your boosts.
- You cannot move while using your active ability.
- You cannot suck in cachalots or other whales.
- If you absorb a jellyfish, you will be poisoned until you spit them out or until they leave the game.
Suitable Biomes[edit | edit source]
- The suitable biomes for the whale are the ocean, ocean surface, arctic, and arctic surface.
- If a whale enters the ocean, it will lose oxygen; however it can swim and its oxygen time is long enough for this to not matter.
- If a whale enters the arctic, it will lose oxygen; however it can swim and its oxygen time is long enough for this to not matter.
- If a whale enters the deeeep, it will lose oxygen and pressure.
- If a whale enters the swamp, it will lose oxygen and salinity.
- If a whale enters the swamp surface, it will not regenerate salinity.
Diet[edit | edit source]
This is a complete list of food that whales can eat.
|Name||Can be eaten by||Image||XP||Description|
|Barb||All except for the stonefish who spawned it||0||Spawns behind a stonefish using their active ability. Deals damage upon eating it (7% of max life). Poisons anyone who eats it with a base DPS of 10% that lasts 5 seconds (except poison-immune animals). Despawns after 4 seconds.|
|Bubble||All animals that breathe air||0||Affected by gravity, floats upwards. Spawns out of the window of the shipwreck. Replenishes oxygen to animals that breathe air.|
|Bird Poop||All except for lamprey and seagull||10||Affected by gravity. Automatically spawns below any seagull every 10 seconds.|
|Plankton||All||25||Spawns in the ocean.|
|Ice||All||50||Spawns in the arctic and deeeep.|
|Volcano Food||All except lamprey||125||Affected by gravity, floats upwards. Spawns out of volcanoes, which can be hidden in and are located in the arctic and the deeeep. When eaten as an animal that is not suited to the arctic, it will replenish some of your temperature.|
|Person||Tier 9 to tier 10 except sunfish and stonefish||300||Spawns just above the water. Does not spawn in the arctic.|
|Flappy Duck||Ray to tier 10||675||Spawns in a horizontal line just below the height limit.|
|Meat||All||1000||Spawns where an animal dies (tier 2 to tier 10 animals only). The amount of meat that spawns depends on what animal it was.|
Hiding Places[edit | edit source]
Whales cannot hide anywhere as they are a tier 10 animal.
