Feeding it what you want it to gather has NO EFFECT on its father rates. These are determined by the additional level granted every level to increase your moschops' gathering efficiency of your chosen resource.
Best for if you need fast polymer for crafting. I have used this countless times to make all the industrial equipment. But only level up health and weight and put the gathering levels into polymer. Mines at 530% and I get 50 polymer per penguin. ðŸ‘
Easy Organic Poly method. Build a small pen with an auto turret in, set to short range and wild dinos. Put your Moschops in and then pick up Mantis and drop them in. The turret will kill them and the Moschops will harvest. I got 6000 poly in 30mins.
This is by far the best gatherer of organic polymer. Carry the moschops to a frozen island with penguins. Put it on follow. Create a whisle group and whisle with the (Xbox) Lb down d-pad while looking at a corpse. It will collect the penguin corpse. Do not do this whisle in your base.
These things are freakin cowards. They will run at the first sign of danger. Make sure to carry with argy while using for maximum efficiency. If you trained it for gathering prime, put it in a tame order group of your choice, and whistle attack target on the dead creature while carrying it with argy/quetz, preferably a quetz because you can carry and attack at the same time, and fly close. Then once it harvests, fly home and enjoy the prime!
DO NOT PUT POINTS INTO MELEE DAMAGE
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.
If you set them to wander they will harvest from any bushes or trees they come across, allowing you to passively collect huge quantities of fiber and thatch for crafting, aswell as berries for brews, beer, and keeping your animals fed. Also good for clearing out an area for building.
Now that these guys are rideable they are the ultiment way to level up early game. Simply area attack ( right mouse click ) on some bushes, gather tonnes of fibre, and simply sit in your safe house and make half a quadrilllion primitive cloth hats. If you have tonnes of spoiled meat you can even use all the narcoberrys you probably gathered to make narcotics while you wait. For further XP, get a friend to sit on your moschops while you craft and have a lystrosaurus nearby for the animal XP boost (having a freind sitting on an animal whilst receiving your tribe crafting benifits seem to transfer some XP to the Dino he/she is sitting on. ) the best way early game to tame a moschops is to go around with lots of tino and mejo berries ( and keep some Sabre tooth salmon nearby for easy prime fish meat ), find a whole bunch of them and just follow them around and hope for the best, if you are lucky a moschops may only want one Tinto followed by one mejo. I hope this has been helpful so vote☝️
Don't know why dodex took it off gathering charts but funnel in skills for a single resource and it is still number 1 gather, melee doesn't effect it put on neutral and wonder with victom harvest enabled to gather from corpses on normal days I get 40+ prime from a single stego. Carry with argie for safe harvesting
