The ghost leviathans are a mixed bag. On one hand there are far far fewer of them than the reapers, and in my expeirience at least they seem to be a little bit less agressive. On the other hand, they are a lot less noisy than the other leviathans and can sneak up on you easily if you arent careful,
Sea dragons are the leviathans you have to worry about. They are very noisy and can be heard a good distance away and there are only 3 of them ( 2 in the inactive lava zone and 1 in the active lava zone), however, they have large pathing areas, and are capable of damage that is unrivaled by any other creature in the game. Their attacks do substantial damage to your submersables so be VERY cautious when going to these zones.
How should we approach these?
I know I've been attacked by a Sea Treader at least once. It rised his front leg, said "moooo" and instead of putting it back down, it hit me. I was totally unprepared for that.
+ Reapers utilizing echolocation to find you is purely flavor text for the scan data. It has an aggro range like anything else and will attack you based on sight. Attraction to noise is only applicable if you're piloting the Cyclops since it utilizes different aggro mechanics. Also, they're attracted to light.
+ Ghosts live in the Dead Zone, Lost River, Grand Reef, and the Northern Blood Kelp Zone due west of the mountain island.
+ In practice, Sea Dragons are actually less threatening than Reapers are due to their aggro range being the same but the Sea Dragon is a lot less inclined to keep up a chase if you escape. I've had Reapers chase me across the map before, even in 1.0. Sea Dragons and Ghosts are nowhere near as aggressive and persistent. The only advantage the Sea Dragon has over the others is easily-dodged projectiles.
No Reapers are anywhere near anything important; they all spawn out of the way.
Well, I mean, except for the Aurora... And if you're not entirely sure of where you're going, you can run into one of the mountains ones when heading out to the Sunbeam island.
Sure, you can run into anything if you stumble across it, though. Including heading out into the Void.
Reaper Leviathan: avoid.
Ghost Leviathan: Ignore.
Sea Dragon Leviathan: Ignore.
Ghost does just chip damage on your vehicles, even on the player itself, and the Sea Dragon is way too passive imo. Only the Reaper seems to be a decent threat to me.
The reapers are fine since they are just made to scare you. You need to strafe further away than compared to ghost since their mouth claws can grab you from a distance.
For the seadragon, run as fast as you can. Use the slingshot maneuver on the prawn to gain speed to be slightly ahead of the dragon.
