An ankylo (leveled in melee) and a quetz or argy (leveled in weight) is the single best way to farm metal. Just pick the anky with your bird and drop it on metal rocks. Then get on the anky and hit the metal rocks. The ankylo’s weight does not matter since the bird carries all
Everyone knows that these are great for metal but they can also harvest berries very well with the alternate attack button. They are also the best around for harvesting flint, so are great when you’re looking to make a lot of gunpowder.
So a lvl 30 anky can fight and alpha raptor! Mine has killed 3 due to it hitting hard and knocking them back, the raptors can't hit them! Ankylosaurs aren't just for metal, but they are also for alpha raptor killing machines! These things are my favorite herbivore because of this.
With the recent update Ankylo can hold four times the metal because it weighs less as long as it's in ankylo 's inventory. So 100 metal will weigh 25lbs instead of 100. Also tamed Anky will have more speed than usual. Happy farming ^__^ -Geo
The Ankylosaurus is, in my opinion, one of the best dinos to tame as a low level. Not only is it the best dino to gether metal, it is also a great taming mount, because it can collect berries and can kill little things like Raptors easy. This will be one of your most used dinos when you get into the higher levels and taming an Anky as soon as you can make the saddle (lvl 40) is highly recommended.
