Ok these things are the fastest creature in ark when mounted by a human. They are great for supply runs, and just generally excellent during events. Christmas event? Can easily get supply drops. Thanksgiving or Halloween events? Can easily fly around the map at light speed and find limited time dinos. They also have less damage reduction with their freeze breath on super turkeys. They are fabulous on every map, and I have found them useful getting around th eclipse of Valguero.
These Creatures can only jump 3 times and a dash (Left Click, R2 or Right Trigger in mid-air) will not count as one. Thei ability to glide in mid-air while freezing their target proves useful to tribes. Like most mammals they have a gestation period which means you dont have to perfect a temperature to breed them. Level pure stam and Health. (The closer you are to the target while freezing it the more damage)
For pve players, yes the nerf changed them completely however they are still very good in my opinion. A leveled up imprinted from 150 wild parents is way faster than wyverns. And if you are playing slightly boosted servers and you’re lucky enough to get your hands a 755 longneck with shocking darts, it only takes a few shots and I didn’t have to trap him at all
