So many people say, "Parasaur is the worst tame." They are all lying. With a Weight/Speed focused high level parasaur, you can get away from everything after you, plus have them with you when out gathering resources. They even swim pretty fast.
Great first tame. Saddle is easy to make, Parasaur just needs berries and whatever narco you can find. I tamed a level 50 the other day in 20 minutes or so with mejoberries and like, 2 narcotics. Great for travel. Just tame one!
The parasuar has had its base damage buffed to 12, base weight buffed to 480, and it’s wild weight gain was raised to 9.6 per level. This makes parasaurs carry only slightly less weight than a mammoth. Parasaurs have had a huge buff. Like this so others can see
Make sure to equip the ARK Founder Saddle when you tame it. For the noobs, this how you do it. Place the actual saddle in your inventory and drag the skin on top of it. Then put it on your Parasaur and ride into battle with style!
Good early tame, not fast or particularly good as fighters, but they make a decent pack animal early on and later can serve well as bait Dino’s to protect your more vulnerable animals in convoys. They swim pretty well and make a good quantity of medium feces for farmers.
Newest update gives them the ability to spot enemies on your HUD.
