Epics are hard to kill due to the combination of their high health score and ability to kill creatures in one-two hits.
It should be noticed that though Epics may follow your Tribesmen back to your tribe, they rarely, if ever, will enter it, most likely due to the large amounts of buildings make it hard for it to move about.
The best way to take down an epic, especially those that move especially slow and lack wings, is to use spears and keep at a distance, especially when one uses one tribesman to lure the beast in circles as his allies continue to pelt it with spears.
Hm, if you're in the creature stage, try moving to a new nest. It may take a few times, but at least you'll get away from the epic until you can evolve. If you have fast feet and spit 5 you can shoot the epic and kill it -- it does take forever though.
If you're in tribe stage, hm, that's a bit harder. Though usually by tribe stage my creatures have maxxed weapons and wings and can take out epics fairly easily with everyone using spears.
This is what I do, when an epic comes near my tribe. *Well, when I was in tribe stage*
I opened up the cheat box, and used the cheat: refillMotives, every time that any of my tribe member's energy got low. Also, if you get all the slots filled with tribe members *12, I think* you can easily take down an Epic, with that cheat.
I took an epic down in each stage, its not that hard with skill, and cheats.
Lots, photography, and machinima... Coming soon
The star maker says, "It ain't so bad"
The dream maker's gonna make you mad;
The spaceman says, "Everybody look down!
Its all in your mind!"
Me too!! 3 in creature stage, two of them at the same time, one killed the other then 2 of my followers, and then i ran away and just afew nests away by the beach was another one!! and it was on easy mode aswell!
there's a tool you can get in the space stage, and you can make an animal an epic.
i dunno how to get it normaly (prob just missions) but if you use the cheat "spacecreate" you get loads of awsome tools.
