I don’t know if anyone else has realized but these things are absolute gods for cave explorations. The gigantopithecus is good for all of them but arctic cave explorations. The doedicurus can simply roll over fodder for its xp right into your unfound dossiers and needed artifact. Once I took out an entire cave in under five minutes with one of these badasses. They’re fast, tanky, insane atk, good knockback, and extremely agile. They’re even faster in water just so yall know. These also have high torpor. Mine is level 228 and we went into lava cave and absolutely destroyed EVERYTHING. Every single thing. EVERYTHING. These are medium weight mules high atk and hp tanks and insane racers they’ve got good Stam too. It’s insane how good they are.
Here is a tip for those of us using large rocks for cover, trying to hide out in the forests while playing solo: If you park this little guy by a rock, he will destroy the rock all by himself. If you carry him with an argie and skim over a rock, he will destroy that rock all by himself and you lose your cover (good luck getting refertilizer to re-grow your rocks). The good news is that you can harvest stone with this little guy by simply skimming over rocks, avoiding the chance of getting eaten by a hidden saber tooth or a raptor!
