Dire bears are super OP.I was just going to a beaver dam to get some cementing paste for my secondary metal base when I saw a level 25 spino with over a thousand health run from a level 5 dire bear with 680 health.Also the other day I was hunting some dire bears for pelt for my fur armor set but a level 40 dire bear with only 890 health killed me.it killed me so fast that I couldnt even hit it with my ascendant sword that deals 200 damage per hit.i recommend if you hunt with longneck rifle or bow/crossbow when you hunt them,never EVER confront them face to face... that is,unless you have a death wish.
For everyone complaining that bear traps don’t work on this creature, this bear is much larger than a bear today. As the description reads “Immobilizes humans and SMALL creatures” there is a giant bear trap you can use for bigger creatures. - Apollyon
I like the dire bear in the wild. why? It's because it's not crazy and goes and kills everything in its path(raptors/terrorbirds you pests)just dont go near it.They will be mad but overall it's great.Too bad there are no bees is ark mobile:/
