Outstanding wood collectors. Mine has 770 weight and can carry 3K wood plus rider. Holds wood at 1/5 weight and can be used as mobile smithy. This teamed with a doed can construct a base in minutes. Must have.
To empty a Beaver dam(always completely empty to allow more to spawn), open Iventory of dam, then immediately close it and jump on a semi quick tame(preferably a bird). The beavers will now follow u anywhere. Lead them far away, or over a ledge then return and empty tha dam. *this has to be done for each individual dam.
Do not raid their dams unless u have:
1. Strong dinos (preferably flyers)
2. Strong ranged and melee (EG: rifle, crossbow, pike)
3: increadible weight
I learned from experence when i raided a giant dam and nearly died.
Don't break the dam because the Beavers will attack. One time I was trying to tame a Beaver and I found the dam. I broke the dam and my poor pachy didn't know what hit him. At least ten Beavers attacked us.
