It's chitin gathering is just incredible. Took a Lv. 240 Direwolf & a Lv. 90 Megatherium in a cave, the wolf gathered about 30-40 Chitin per Dino (Scorpion, Artho etc.) while the Megatherium gathered 300+!
Pretty sluggish on the other hand side, Direwolf and Megatherium (With primitive saddle) both had about 3k HP, the Megatherium got ripped apart while the wolf tanked the dinos easily.
Think of your favorite tame... that was cute. Introducing you to your new favorite tame, GOD... I mean megatherium. Sorry, with one kill of a bug they are very hard to tell apart. You remember waking up on the beach naked and running away from those drones? Yeah, now they will have nightmares of a big ass sloth frothing at the mouth for their demise. Giga making you worry next door? Nothing a Megatherium or 20 and some bug crack can’t fix. I promise you getting one of these changed my life. Collects Chiton pretty good I guess. If pretty good is you throwing out 16K cause you’re slot capped. Your future daughter will call this tame daddy, if you already have a daughter... you should have had a son.
Good against the broodmother,because of their boost against bugs.(if they kill a bug they get a boost that basically makes them the strongest Dino in ark.)Breeding them is also really easy because they give you a baby instantly and don't drop an egg, which saves a bit of time.
