Enemies: Dolls Alters Formers Tames Special Enemies

Enemies such as Dolls and Alters spawn in the field. Note that some enemies have weak points, and others will become stronger under certain conditions.

Dolls

Dolls are enigmatic enemies that ARKS battle against. Some Dolls can change their color to red during battle, or after receiving a certain amount of damage, to increase their attack power and change their behavior.

The yellow core is their weak point, so target it to deal more damage.

Alters

Alters are organic enemies that alter their forms during the night, often growing glowing red blades on various parts of their bodies.

Given these changes in strength, it may be necessary to only take them on during the day, and avoid them at when they're at their toughest.

Each Alter has a yellow eye on their body that acts as a weak point. Some Alters may require destroying armor parts before becoming a weak point.

Enhanced Enemies may spawn as part of a Trial in Combat and Gathering Zones or "escorting" a group of Rare Enemies in Gathering Zones.

Enhanced Enemies have a rare chance to drop Unit (NGS) Vialto Armor: Arga, Unit (NGS) Vialto Armor: Belta, Unit (NGS) Vialto Armor: Sheza, and the 4 Evolcoat Series.
