Overlooked entirely too much! Iv got a level 211 named Jack and he’s my main mount. I take him everywhere.
Even the lower leveled ones can outrun raptors and hit like a truck. An absolute must have. Please don’t go long without one. They’ll be your best friend!
The Iguanadon is a very great all purpose mount, however note its egg size, though the iguanadon takes simple kibble to tame, their eggs can in fact be used to make regular kibble, if gathering a bunch of scorpions seems too challenging, the Iguanadon is an amazing alternative for the early game egg farm, they can be transported easier as well!
Started on a new server and went through the trike tame to start the utility farming. Next day got an iguanadon and explored how it is used and what it can do. 5 minutes later I retired the trike to the egg farm.
The iguanadon is a great ground transportation, berry farming, small Dino killing, maneuverable and an overall great Dino. Jump off a cliff, no damage. Need to chase something to tranquil it, pull out your weapon and shoot while you ride. IMO level weight and speed and you've got a great utility ride!
Gets rare flowers to the point that they don't feel rare. Infinite stamina in run mode along with a good base weight, along with the ability to use tools on its back makes for an all purpose tame that makes the trike feel completely obsolete, cannot recommend enough.
When I was starting the game a saw a iguanadon and wanted to kill it because I needed meat so I ran up to it and poked it with my spear and died, I respawned and saw a rock so I hoped on it and I didn't slip off so I ran up to the iguanadon and poked it again and bolted to the rock and hoped on and started poking, after a while the iguanadon started to run so I hoped of the rock and killed it, the next day I found out that iguanadons have infinite stamina and was so mad at myself for not taming it.
Arguably the best first tame. Why?
- The saddle allows rider weaponry. Run away from something while shooting tranqs at it.
- Can convert berries into seeds.
- Has a four legged mode with infinite stamina. Pump points into movement speed, you'll get a 2% increase each point.
- Collects berries seeds and thatch.
- Easy tame, bola it then shoot in the face with tranq items.
