I had one named diamond she was always there for meand help me killed a therizinosaure when it attacked me behind my back. She can distract and attack the creature attacking tout while you kill it. She died because of my stupid cousin who had her in her shoulder and stand on the fire and died burnt so my diamond. I hope she is now in a better place ;-; .
These guys are amazing starting out, get a high to decent level tame it and just pump all into melee and some health( at least like 500-600hp) and these dudes will be ur body gard until u get a bird, if u get jumped by a raptor these dudes will shred its face as its shredding u, and if a Dino gets to close he also does damage at the same time as you, get the little guy some high melee friends and a spy glass and oh boy u can now take down dat dodo dat has been terrorizing u (as well as low level rexes). All and all pretty good game for most of the game, so grab a bola grab a slingshot and happy taming.
Best tame for the time and narcotics. I have about 20 of these above lvl 200 defend my base.. They shred people along with my turrets. I also raid with 10+ of them. They make shooting at me impossible as they swarm people not their mounts. Use the spyglass to scope dinos or people and whistle attack target. It is an invaluable sniper tool.
P.S. Keep them close to your fabricator and smithy to level faster.
These little creatures are amazing for clearing caves just get about 20 of them drag them into a cave and watch them work you need to pay attention to there hp though there strength is in numbers so individuals can die
I had a pack of 15, roughly level 220+ mostly second generation beasts. All at 2500ish health and 300+% melee damage. They'd kill wild 150 rexes and brontos in a couple seconds. They're all now rip when I thought they'd work on a level 15 giga... woops.
So handy while traveling! I got swarmed by a pack of raptors, and one of these guys absolutely shredded through them. They can attack while on your shoulder, so just pump melee and have good armor and you might as well have a portable Rex on your back
These little guys are great for base Defence. The first technique I mostly only use to defend against quetzals is strapping C4 to a low level dimorph, then whistle him to attack the quetz, and trigger the C-4. Just as he's closing in to bite the quetz. You might need four or five of these guys to down the quetz, but if you ask me, 5 10 minute tames are worth it for a game that probably took the opposition a few hours to tame. Another technique like to use to take out rexes gigas, and other tanky dinos, is go around, behind them with a swarm of dimorphs (don't do this against Brontos or any Dino with a huge AoE attack) Then whistle attack (which is ".") on the rider. They will shred through him so fast, he won't know what even happened. After the rider is off, you can easily trap the giga in a large bear trap, kite it off a cliff (or away from your base) or just kill it, when the Dino doesn't have a rider, it sacrifices attack speed which is a very vital part of PvP.
