They are so useful as an all round mount. No saddle, good stats and can jump and throw you. You can even put cool hats on them. They are easy to tame aswell, so give them a try. Also very OP in abberation
Possibly the most useful creature to go caving with as his small size but large health and damage allows him to withstand onycs,spiders and scorpions haven't encountered a arthurplura yet so not sure how effective he is against it
These guys SHOULD work similar to a companion in other games. It should be able to wield a sword along with the ability to wear more than just a helmet. Having a tame that acts as a warrior would be very cool for battle in ARK.
