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.
You never know what you've got until it's gone. Actually I knew exactly what I had and that was my mega. The BEST at gathering chitlin or keratin. I'd take him to a spot with a lot of bugs and after 2 mins I'd have stacks and stacks of chit/keratin. I left him on a boat while I took my argys to get some obsidian real fast and ended up running into 3 spinos. Took a while to kill 2 and tame the 3rd while fending off tickle chickens then on the way back I found a gigantithicus or whatever the sasquatch is and followed him around shoving berries in his ass until he was tamed and by the time I got back to my raft base with the spino and harry my mega was dead..... I've spent 2 days looking for another and can't find one. I saw them ALL THE TIME until I'm looking for one lol.
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
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!
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
I would highly recommend getting one of these big boys. Me and one of my boys got a 140 earlier today and I must say he is quite the Dino. His name is Pablo and he is a beast. Got his health to 10k and his melee to 350 then took him down to the swamp cave on the island. Pablo single handedly wiped the entire big population in that cave and in the process got me from level 96-100. Most importantly you can sit these guys which is what really sold me. Anyways I’d highly recommend getting one of these sloths.
