I can not stress enough to my friends how useful the trike is. Early game it makes a great pack animal. Late game in groups of three or four it can be used as a decent battle mount. Taming a trike early on can be a great way to start a large base and keep you well fed with berries.
A triceratops is a very special dinosaur in this game. It is easy enough to tame at a low level, yet powerful enough to take on raptors that could kill you easily. It can collect enough berries that you would never go hungry again, and still have some berries leftover to help tame more trikes. They are very slow but it can make up for it if you increase the weight, attack, and stamina stats. It is an extremely good pack animal because it can carry a lot, but still defend itself, especially if it is in a large group. Overall, the triceratops is one of my favorite and most versatile dinosaurs.
The best way to utilize the trike when tamed or untamed when tamed it can gather loads of berries for you or when it's untamed you can use it as a shield for instance like a carno is running after you and there's a trike try to run for the trike to get the carno to fight the trike so you can escape unharmed
I strongly recommend everyone to tame this creature and pump stamina weight and a little bit of health and speed as this will turn it into the perfect all around useful mount it's knock back effect , his ability to farm berries and if his weight is high allows him to carry ultimate amounts of resources and survive most predators
Triceratops is one of the best early game tames. Its saddle is only lvl 20. It can harvest berries very efficient and quick. Its attack also has knockback, so even a carno is no match for a tamed trike. Just time your attacks and the carno won't even be able to hit you. But watch out! Knockback doesn't work on big creatures, like a t-rex or a bronto...
One thing I have to give to the trike that not many don't. Yes the berries duh, but it's knock back. When timed right any level trike can kill any level Dino that is effected by it. And someone said but they are completely wrong the knock back does effect the Rex. I swear any level trike can kill a 150 Rex. Practice timing your shots. Make sure you use your stamina for the fight. With each knock back, move your trike back to gain alil more distance from the target. When it's coming back, stop, regain what lil stamina you can. My level 25 killed a 120 Rex. Practice practice practice as if you miss you shot and the Rex hits u. Your in trouble.
I never really was interested in taming trikes (I’m ADHD and have no patience for slow movement speed), but starting on Ragnarok, I decided I’d give it a go for once. So I tamed a pretty green level ~60 trike thinking, ‘hey, it’ll make an okay early game fleshy suitcase’. I was wrong. She earned my respect very quickly. When moving bases, I was set upon by a large pride of sabertooths. About 10, all higher than level 20. I thought I was going to be a gonner, considering my low level and crap gear. Then my meat suitcase killed a l l o f t h e m with a few agressive head tosses. So yeah, they’re a lot tougher than you’d imagine. A herd of these, with patience for their slow movement, is recommended for ages (and levels) 1-99. Impressive and easy to tame, with more than enough bang for your buck.
You should tame a trike first thing early game to get you some narcoberries to make tranqs. You then use those tranqs to tame an argentavis. Hopefully you have a stone base by then and then you can start metal farming with the argent and keep your forges full good luck😉
Tame a 130+ I hope you get lucky and manage to tame one with either, the max 1 or 2 stats being damage or health.
Invest only on those two stats, and you got yourself a Alpha Raptor and Carno killer. Amazing exp farming machine early on!
