Ferox are amazing for travelling, they take no fall damage, can climb and scale walls, has a jumping boost if you time the jumps right upon landing, do good damage and if you take to extinction they can harvest the lampposts for element dust and are good for farming corrupt nodules, up so people can see!
The best caver. Change my mind. You can have them small to fit through tight gaps, you can put a little miner helmet on them for a light, allowing you to wear a gas mask or fur hat to survive better, they can climb walls and swim, they are super fast, they are super strong, and more. Their only limitation is the addiction and element required, but they’re great for short trips.
I use these guys as guards, I put element in food boxes and trap them in doors, so when a player does a raid and attempts the code ( I put the code on a sign ) when they get it right it releases the feroxs and they eat the element and I have fun watching the person struggle, try and do this on your friends!
If you feed him element, he goes beast mode, and is rideable. But be careful. If you feed him element too many times, he'll be beast mode and agro on everyone, including you and tribe members, as well as on enemies. Once done throwing a tantrum, he will reset his relationship with element, and the process will start all over again. I would advise bringing freshly tamed ones to raids, however, the closer he is to his tantrum, the stronger he is in beast mode. It's a fine balance, so be wary if you do feed him element.
