This thing is a miniature Rex, to say the least. I advise this Dino before a Rex. Just as strong. Can carry just as much weight. Has more speed and stamina. Has the speed of a Galli, but is also more controllable when sprinting. Also suitable for caves, unlike the Rex, because the Dire bear is smaller. It is also omnivorous, so you can feed it meat, fruit, or veggies. Great tame if you ask me.
Faster than a giga, strong as a rex, with some levels can get to 1k carry, can gather and eat both berries and meat,can even gather fiber, if you tame a high level one you have a super gathering and combat mount. Unmatched in utility.
I'm not going to repeat their gathering abilities etc. BUT i will talk about some stats.
Wild Dire bears have low HP but it goes up very fast once tamed(+300hp per level) and they do extreme damage for such a small mount wich actually makes them a perfect mount for caving! More reliable than Barionyxes in my opinion.(i don't like the water)
Hits like a Mac truck, more damage than a rex, easily 8k hp, super fast, LOTS of weight, awesome stam, great attack speed, gathers meat, berries, and fiber, super easy to tame, cheap saddle, pretty much a cheap theri that hits like a rex, fast as a galli, and has quetz weight. I’m pretty much just waiting for a nerf.
