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.
Megatheriums are one of if not the absolute best way to defeat the Brood Mother, for instance it can easily obliterate any and all cave dwellers that guard the artifacts necessary to summon this demonic demigod. It also receives a damage boost when they kill any invertebrates and therefore, it is essential to use in the boss fight. When paired up with a Yuti and Deadon these killing machines are completely unstoppable; although, I’d recommend both high levels and great saddles.
Please like to help those of whom are planning on beating the Brood Mother.
THIS DUDE IS LITERALLY A THERI ON CRACK its attacks have wider area damage then a theri, its faster then a theri, it does more damage then a theri, it collects fiber with the default attack, it excels in collecting thatch, chitin, and it has bug buff
Very good for gathering berries,thatch and fiber and very good for fighting the broodmother because of the buff they get when they kill bugs also these will not get any creatures Agro if you don’t attack them first hope this helps if so up
These creatures are pretty easy to tame (a simple knock out feed) they are brilliant for caves as they have the bug buff ability (makes them 2x stronger when fighting bugs) also these creatures are amazing for the broodmother for the same reason.
Ah yes, the good ol bug eater. But can it eat bugs as much as we expect? Today I will test that out to fight the gamma, beta and alpha broodmothers! By the way the megatheriums aren’t mutated and are level 430-470
Gamma: Set them to aggresive for bug buff. Oh boy, soon they started SHREDDING the big spider. It died in about 1 minute and 30 seconds,
Beta: At about half hp she killed just one of them, but overall she died without any more casualties.
Alpha: Yknow the drill, aggresive. But she was pretty fast so the megatheriums got the bug buff early. But then she killed 3 at the SAME TIME. Things went pretty downhill from there. The megatheriums got her to 1/4th hp, but soon they were all mowed down.
So, what do i think? I think that megatheriums are really good for the broodmother! And keep in mind, these were UNMUTATED megatheriums.
Absolute godsend for meat runs in caves. Only things that'll aggro up on it are Pirhana, Megalania and (presumably) Megalosaurus. Otherwise, everything else (including Arthropleura and Sarcos) won't aggro. Have at 'em!
It's great at collecting berries, fiber and chitin from insects/bugs. He also doesn't collect charcoal from the burnt trees near the volcano in ragnarok anymore. Great for fighting broodmother and doing artifact runs on the island and caves that are filled with insects. Definitely worth taming
In my opinion one of the best land mounts in the game, slow turn radius and sprint speed are its only cons, great base health and damage, amazing base carry weight and good stamina make this my taming mount, at 4K health it can tank a Spino while I tranq it still riding which just sold it for me. It can gather berries well enough and it’s bug killer buff makes it a force to be reckoned with around any area with bugs or scorpions
Go out of your way to tame this thing, a high level mega is my go to land mount now
