Dire Bears are one of the best mid-size mounts out there. They can harvest berries, fiber, thatch, hide, and meat very well. The swipe attack has a great AOE, which makes them great against swarms of enemies. They also provide a thermal buff that keeps you warm in cold climates. Their relatively small size, strong attacks, and thermal buff make them (in my humble opinion) one of the best mounts for cold caves, especially the large ice cave on the center. A very versatile mount, great for practically any role you want for it.
Super easy to came just bring 10-20 prime meat (depends what level ur Dire is) the beast will get tamed up in less then 30 minutes. This beast gathers hide,fiber,berries,meat like it’s nothing. Hits like a mother trucker. Insane speed. Literally take this beats asap once you unlock its saddle.
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.
FIBER MACHINE I use this guy to gather all the bushes in the area and BAM over 5 stacks of fiber also can wreck alpha raptors and carnos which give decent loot And can get up to the 1000s in weight level that up And you have all the metal any time any where
