If you want a bunch of resources but you are really busy, just tame a bunch of moschops and set them on wandering. And you will have stacks of wood, thatch, fiber, and berries. Just make sure you level up their damage, health and weight so that they can protect themselves. If you are worried about losing them, you can just use a tranponder tracker and node. Btw you can do this by just afk
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.
These guys are good for farming,cuz u can upgrade how much they can harvest for a type of thing , and idk why anyone says they are useless, this guys are basicalyy monsters , i got in a fight with a 154 lvl argentavis and my moschops was 60 with 400% dmg , he beat the argentavis and still had more than a half of his hp. So i dont understand why anyone says it s useless. like so more people can see it 😁
The single best early tame! You could basically get them as soon as you leave the character creation. With a little bit of luck berries will be enough to tame one up. Get some mushroms and flowers in the swamp if you want to increase your chances. Less than 5min of work and you got yourself a survivable, decently hard hitting and quick enough mount that doesnt require a sadle. As the cherry on top it can gather every plant and dino recource there is. Use it to get your narcotic production started which is going to xp boost you up to crossbow levels in no time from where you can comfortable tame whatever you like. It is the ultimate kickstarter for your playthrough.
- Gathers fiber
- Gathers LOADS of fiber
- As strong as a raptor
- Good Weight for early game
- Lays large eggs
- Spawns frequently
- Passive Tame
This is THE early game dino, tame one if you can, it'll be worth it.
They’re GREAT for getting wood, thatch, berries, seeds, and fiber! just set to wander and check in every so often and there you go. I have 5 roaming around my base and i never have to cut down trees etc. (this is on mobile btw)
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.
These are the ultimate killer while you ride them if you hop off they lose all confidence and run like a preschooler from a dog.They also gather large amounts of fiber and berry's they are also good for hide meat and thatch! Just rember that if a dilo attacks your dodo you'll never see your precious moschops ever again.
Moschops is a good early resource collecter. Build a wall around resources (ferns, trees, etc. no rocks) then put the Moschops in in the area with the walls (or the resources) and it will be incased in walls collecting lots of resources.
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‘
So I tamed one on my 2nd day on ark. It was a level 90. It is definitely helpful for people just starting out because if you set it to wander it collects a good amount of fiber, berries, wood, and thach. I recommend it to anyone starting out because it can be a great help getting those resources that you need.
