So these guys have a very specific food restore, that's different from most dinos.cooked meat restores more of it's food than raw, and it will eat out of a trough before it eats out of its own inventory. It will like most dinos, eat raw foods before cooked ones, even though cooked restores more of it's food.
After turning off it’s healing ability, put remove all stacks of normal raw meat but leave the prime meat in the daeodon’s inventory, prime meat will make refilling the daeodon’s hunger a lot faster then normal raw meat.
Idk if it was just mine, but I'm pretty sure their food goes down SUPER fast when tamed. Same goes for when being tamed. Mine died a day after I logged off due to starvation. Rip Bacon. He was so young...😢😢😢😢
Here are 3 tips to maximize heal usage for daeodons:
1: If a daeodon runs out of food, don't force feed it until it's back at full. Instead, leave render distance then go back, and the daeodon will be fully fed so long as it had enough food.
2: Cook any meat with an Industrial Grill before feeding it to a daeodon. Cooked meat give more food, so you won't waste as much meat if it's cooked before eaten.
3: Most medium to large water creatures, such as Manta, Ichthyo, and Megalodon, give rediculous amounts of meat compared to other creatures, use this to your advantage when looking for food for your Daeodon.
So their main shtick is healing, but these guys can be quite powerful as mounts. I’m on an unofficial server with the health gains pumped up high, but I’m sure these guys are tanky regardless! They can certainly hold their own when you’re out and about against many other creatures!
Time for every tribe to build a hospital! These healers are amazing, you can go out on your wyvern getting meat to feed them and when healed up getting meat again because they never stop eating. A never ending cycle, fun!
These guys are really good for boss fights since their heal ability but have like 2 billon meat in it so it won't starve since they also heal when it get attacked by a compy. The next day my daedon starved
