I died My griffin right next to giga. My stone structures next to giga. Giga’s Brain: I rather eat stone than griffin. I get my stuff that’s right near giga. Back away. Tamed it while eating stone. SUCCESS. Now I have a lvl 170 giga that murders everything and my griffin still alive. Thanks to gigas Favoring stone over food
Person who said they wanted a platform saddle.
Firstly, oh, sure, it's soooo balanced to have a F*CKING 17K HEALTH AT LEVEL ONE, INCREDIBLY HIGH DAMAGE TAME WITH AN ARMY OF RAPTORS ON TOP,
Secondly, these things will eat you over a bit of fall damage, imagine what they'd think of a platform saddle.
Thirdly, look at them, to they look like they could hold up a platform? Do they? Really? I mean, seriously.
While a absolute BEAST of a tame, the giga has some factors you have to consider.
1. Enraging. The giga will enrage and attack EVERYTHING if it enraged. Its eyes will turn a luminous yellow colour and it will be angry.
2. Feeding. The giga will enrage (see above) if there is no meat available too it, whether in a trough or in its inventory. This will stop once it has acquired enough meat to keep its hunger away. (This does not apply to babies. They will just starve)
3. Imprinting. If you have a giga, breed it and get 100 percent imprint. If you don't, the giga will enrage permanently until death when its health drops below a certain amount. (I think 40 percent).
4. Using your giga. These things have a nasty bite and would be perfect for pvp except for the fact you have to factor in the above and that you are a sitting duck for any sniper while mounted. Besides that, it is perfect for pvp.
Hope this helps. But remember, these things can still be countered with varying difficulty.
