As well as the set bonus, you’ll also gain additional perks per Bone evolution on your shark, including:

- Bone Head: Additional ramming damage, boat crew knockback resistance, boat crew damage resistance, ram force, and damage resistance;
- Bone Body: Gain access to the Bone Crusher ability;
- Bone Fins: Inflict damage when you perform an evade;
- Bone Tail: Strengthened tailwhip, ramming, splash radius, and additional damage resistance.
The effects and abilities granted by each Bone evolution improve as you upgrade them from Tier 1 to Tier 5.
How to use the Bone Shark
The above image shows the ratings parameters of a Mega bull shark that has all five evolutions within the Bone Set equipped and upgraded to Tier 5.
The Bone Set offers some of the most powerful boosts to your physical attacks. The Bone Fins inflict damage when you evade; the Bone Tail makes your tailwhip much stronger; and the Bone Crusher ability allows you to do tremendous amounts of damage when you lunge.
Just having a few parts of the Bone Set equipped can make your shark much more powerful. If you prefer to battle your foes head-on, lunging in to then bite or tailwhip, the Bone Set is the best evolution line to follow.
While a bone-covered bull shark does lack in speed, its incredible mass, health, and defence bars mean that you become nearly unstoppable when attacking from close range or in the air.
