POINTS put into melee damage do not increase this creatures gathering efficiency. Speaking as someone who has messed up this way (23 times (have a nice little army going)) a much more useful investment is weight, maybe accompanied by some health.
This guy is my favorite dino to start. It can farm LOTS of fiber, chitin, berries, rare mushrooms, rare flowers, polymer, etc. And it has a considerably good melee and health. But people don't see its value just because its a big coward iguana... Lmao. But for real, they're really one of the best dinos to get at the beginning, if not the best. Give this an up to let people know.
Moschops is literally one of the best chitin and polymer farmers, if not the best. Kill trilobites with it and you'll see how much chitin it gets (and a bit of oil and pearls too). I spent the last hour killing trilobites with Potato (my Moschops) and got two chests full of chitin. Apparently people don't know this so give it an up to let everyone know.
These are very good for starters they are good gatherers and are fun creatures if you level their movement speed they can go really fast! Also you can’t ride them in Ark Mobile. Up so more people can see
Don’t make it listen to group whistles. If you whistle a target it will run off. You’ll have to keep an eye on it. After that, whistle stop on it and/or follow. Oh, and if you see Simon make sure to tell him it’s safe now and come home.
