This bear is extremely good. Very fast, very good damage output, high hp/hp increase, high carry weight/carry weight increase, and comparable easy to tame. And they also fit in caves. I once saw a level 10 dire bear killing 2 level 5 carnotauros.
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.
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.
