UPGRADED to Phoenix!
Create powerful fire tornadoes to burn your enemies alive!
The Phoenix is one of the other 5 penultimate animals in mope.io, and was added into Beta Mope.io on June 2nd, 2018, along with Fire Tornadoes and balancing. It can dive in lava but, and it's Fire Tornadoes die if it goes into a hiding hole.
- Upgrades from Elephant, Blue Whale, Giant Spider, or Mammoth at 1 million XP.
- Upgrades to Black Dragon at 10 Million XP
- Has an ability to forcefully spawn a Fire Tornado (at the cost of some lava) to attack others.
- May be a glitch, but regenerates lava over time
- It is the only animal that is always animated; its feathers ripple with a fiery effect.
If you were to remove the wings and fancy tail, the Phoenix would simply look like an orange circle with a tail and a beak. However, the wings have designs that looks like fire and nothing else, and its tail has a flame decal for extra decoration. Its wings and tail also have a ripple effect to make them seem like they are made of fire.
When you are a Phoenix, unless you are in desperate need of lava, do not go in the volcano, as the many Fire Tornadoes there will burn you. Instead, go around looking for prey, and use your speed to catch your prey. When you hit your prey, they will be set on fire, so that will help you kill them. If the fire kills them, grab the meat before anyone else can.
Avoid dragons. They can burn you, while your fire tornado won't be able to kill them. If you see a dragon, run away as quickly as possible, and avoid entering water, as water will slow you down.
Because Black Dragons can be burnt by fire tornadoes too, shoot a fire tornado at them, and run away. There are many fire tornadoes in the lava, too, so the Black Dragon will probably die in less than 10 minutes. When you see a Black Dragon at low health, shoot a fire tornado at it, and hope it kills. If it does, then you can enjoy about an extra 5 million XP, or maybe enough to level you up to Black Dragon...
If multiple people are teaming on you, summon a fire tornado and allow it to act as a distraction and a form of attack. Always play defensively when being teamed on to prevent yourself from dying too, which means protecting your tail. Fire tornadoes can also be used to make people who are following you go away, and to help you 1v1 other Phoenixes.
When running from a Phoenix, remember that unless you are an Ostrich, you are slower than the Phoenix, so take sharp turns and find the nearest hiding hole. If you are close to water and you have a water buff, use that to your advantage, as the Phoenix is slow in water. If you aren't quick in water, get to a river instead and go with the current, as the Phoenix resists the current, so you will outrun it.
