Use an argy to grab wild ones and drop in an area close to your base. I have an area with over 20 wild ones roaming free. They will build dams even far inland. No need to fence them in.
Who else thinks that these should be able to build wooden spike walls and dams when tamed?
They know longer cut the weight of wood by 1/4. They reduced it to 1/2.
If you carry a wild Castoroides and put it in your waters it will make its own dam. Easy materials in bulk!
To get stuff frot their dams place a sleeping bag, transfer the whole dam inventory then let them kill you. After respawning retake your stuff again, they dont attack you anymore.
Thumb up pls,for help.
The most versatile tame I can think of. Personally I have used the Castoroides for the following things:
-raid wild beaver dams (cuz they have weight reduction for wood found in the dams)
-explore the oceans
-gather underwater oil (by swimming down to them and holding a pickaxe without dismounting)
-run the lower south cave (for chitin, metal, obsidian, crystal, and the artifact)
Not about the beaver
Who else thinks that there should be a giant platypus In ark
This creature has a bonus where all wood placed on him will way significantly less. So Pitt all your wood on him
Seems to harvest more wood per hit than a mammoth, but the mammoth has better weight reduction, so just get your hairy-elephant to follow your splinter-mouse. Now admire the open plain where a proud forest once stood and laugh uncomfortably.
Wild castoroides sometimes build dams which can contain cementing paste, wood, silica pearls, rare flowers and mushrooms. But accessing the inventory of a dam will make the beavers angry so watch out!
