Getting a massive TLC update in March 2018. The saddle will act as a mobile smithy, Argentavis will be able to carry with Talons as well as with its beak, reduced carry weight on obsidian and a few other unannounced resources (similar to the mammoth and wood), and will also gain a Rapid HP Regen upon eating (likely from devouring corpses and not specifically food from inventory). Like so people can see!
Havent played in ark since flyer nerf, last time I saw the argy it was just a cheaper and expendable, worse but faster quetzal. Now it looks like a completely brand new creature, it looks so amazing now, and it has so useful again, and the fact that you regenerate stamina by eating corpse can make you fly forever. Truly a jack of all trades, I loved it before the nerf, now I love it again and I love it even more now
Its saddle is a smithy. And has a 50 % weight reduction for many materials. Can pick up dinos(nothing larger than carno, I beleive) which you can kill with the argent, or bring it back to a taming pen. Much better stam and weight than ptera's.
I didn't put much effort in my bred and flawed lvl 220 Argy but turns out he easily kills a lvl50 Giga while I skilled mainly on stamina and weight. The Statgains per lvl are so strong he still has 6k health and 1000% dmg. There is no challenge anymore when I fly with him through the map. Perfect to get prime meat for taming.
