even if these guys didn't have utility, they are monkes and that's enough
These things should wear full body armor and weild weapons!
Gigantopithecus is great at gathering fiber when set to wander and has a good decent damage the gigantopithecus is also ridden at all times can be found on redwoods walking around just read it hope it helps :p
These guys gather fiber when they walk over bushes, put on wander in a forest and you have a passive fiber farm. But you’ll have to find em
Would be awesome if Gigantopithecus could ride two-seated mounts with you, even if just for us singleplayers to feel like we have company!
On mobile, you can actually harvest fiber with them. Just get off of your ape in a bush and they will squat down and gather a good amount of fiber.
These guys should be able to climb trees like some
People do and should wear full body armor and should be able to collect wood and thatch and stone with the right weapons
TLC patch to be added in March 2018 to add armor degrading attack, jump ability, and aiming system for throw. Like for people to see!
To the people saying that these things should be able to wield swords:
Imagine being on a pvp server, and then someone with a fully imprinted and mutated big monke with 1.5K% melee shows up and pulls out an ascendent sword that does 400 base damage...
Sounds pretty balanced and fun
Situation described above will result in 6000 damage per hit btw, aka enough to kill tamed giga (without saddle) in 3 hits
