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.
Direbear have little health compared to torpor. Keep a few tamed dodos at your ramp trap. When you've shot the bear enough for it to be bloody, throw in a dodo. It will instantly kill and eat it and start regenerating health. Give it a moment or two and continue darting. Happy hunting!
Best utility mount after theri can gather meat and berries also this guy can get 1k weight and almost 900 melee with enough lvls I know this because my bear ( name is teddy the bear) is stronger than my 209 Rex
To reduce chance of killing it while trying to knock it out is by shooting with a primitive crossbow without delay until it starts to show blood then switch to a regular bow and then space shots 7 seconds apart - works every time for me no matter the level
Craft 2 Stone Foundations Then Craft 6 Stone Doorframes And Craft 2 Wood Ramps (You Can Make Stone Ramps If You Want To) Boom You Made Your Trap Now Lead It In To The Trap Iguanodons Are A Good Pick To Lead It Into The Trap Or On Foot But I Would Recommended Make A Sleeping Bag If Your Doing It On Foot Just In Case Because They Pack A Huge Punch Then Don't Use Crossbows Or You Have A Huge Chance To Kill It! Saddle Is Crafted In Your Inventory
This was a challenging tame. You either outrun the bear and he stops chasing you before you get in the dino trap or he catches you and eats you. I definitely recommend shooting it from far distance then running. I also recommend getting a friend to help you as they can be bait. It's a tame I recommend though!
Dire bears have the same base torpor and torpor gain per level as an allosaurus, meaning darts are almost a requirement (unless of course narco traps are utilised). To put this in perspective, Allos have 63% more base health than a dire bear and gain more health per level, and even with a lvl 150 allo there is still a 1.5% chance that they’ll die for a 100% damage Crossbow. In summary, use darts, it makes it a hell of a lot easier.
