Get a collar, bring it out to a very densely grown part of the woods and let them wander. This is a great way to collect berries, fiber even wood and thatch. Gather a work force of them and you can level a forest.
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.
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
When risen, I like these guys. On a boosted prim server I rode one from Vikings bay to the desert, gathered a ton of meat. Only things what proved troublesome were athropluras and rock assholes...I mean elementals.
Very good for early game harvesting and can hold its own against small predators eg Dilos and Piranhas. Can be hard or easy to tame depending on the taming speed multiplier. Not much utility outside of early game.
These creatures are the best starter dino in ark. I tamed a lvl 90 with 3 mejoberries and it can kill 150 stegos. If you harvest the stego with LT, you can get like 9 prime if u upgrade. Also amazing at getting fiber, better than a therri.And, amazing for thatch!
For organic poly use a high damage dino (spino reaper) to kill crabs and let your moschops farm it. I pumped health and had a basilisk follow me (will work with most dinos you pumped weight on) and transferred the organic poly to it pumped all its levels into poly too
