Dire Bears are honestly my favorite Dino in ark. It is all around amazing for anything you need. It can get meat, prime meat, berries, and even fiber. It's good for fights due to the amazing amounts of damage it can do. This thing is also great for transporting over long distances because of how extremely fast it is. I have about 10 Dire Bears because of how helpful they are to me as my tribe. This is a must have
Probably the most versatile land creature. Can eat berries and meat. Hard to tame unless you use DARTS or a SNOW OWL to heal it during tranq arrow-ing it with a x-bow.
Probably best to put HP>Dmg. These things are trucks but don't get to cocky.
