If you’re like me and don’t feel like collecting resources for an AC, then just try and tame these
A lot of people say that ACs are way better than dimetrodons, but really if you level its melee damage up a ton they are way better than any AC.
The first one I tried to tame I killed on accident so try and do this:
-Use a crossbow and tranq arrows
-have a lot of narcotics or bio toxins (preferably bio toxins because they raise torpidity by 80, and no it doesn’t harm them)
-repeatedly shoot it in the head WATCH THE HEALTH
-I used prime meat. Around 4-5 pieces of it. Don’t use regular meat it’s not worth it (kibble would be the best though)
My dimetrodon was level 19 and it went down rather quickly
Knock it out, load it up on narcotics, and while taming it use fence foundation plus walls to build it a little shelter very, very fast. Then run back to your base and request it! It’s too hard to keep alive otherwise.
People say they arent nearly as good as air cons but if you have the right stats they can be much better. I believe on average you would need 8-12 air cons to hatch a wyvern egg, but my 4 dimetrodons with 350-400% melee can easily incubate wyvern eggs with no problem. I dont like working with electricity so its a nice alternative. (Plus theyre portable!) melee damage affects how well they act as air cons, so make sure you pump melee damage into them if you wish to incubate eggs. Theyre hard to tame but are worth it imo
