Pachy' don't deal large amounts of damage but their attacks will deal torpor. When fighting in the wild don't engage packs large then 3 if you only have basic weapons because they will knock you out quickly then have their way with you.
The first time I heard one of these little critters, I thought, hey is that a goat?! Anyways, they are fun to have around and tamed, as they knock things out and run pretty fast while charging. However, they have considerably low health and stamina, so they can be quite troublesome when low lvl. But who cares, they make goat noises. If only they could eat anything
Lat 65.4 long 40.8 you'll find it's dossier. I actually found it by acident I was walking along with my allo on a hunting trip then I stumbled on it with out even knowing any thing was there an was really surprised. Good luck and may the ARK gods be good to you.
While not the best fighters pachy's make decent early travel mounts. Their base speed isn't all to high but using the alternative attack will cause the pachy to charge forwards are decent speeds and dealing a fair amount of torpor to what ever they hit. Pumping movement speed and stamina will have you moving around the map with ease.
Its charge attack is significantly faster than its sprint- I can easily leave my tamed carno in the dust with it.
Just keep in mind that you can't turn, and easily get hung up on even small rock-piles when charging.
Pachycephalosaurus are small, slow dinosaurs that at first glance may seem lacking in the use department. However leveling one of these Cretaceous critters, especially a high level one, in Melee, Stamina and Health can turn them into the ultimate living taming mount only rivaled by a high Melee Mantis equipped with clubs, knocking out Parasaurs, Trikes, Dilos, Raptors, Pteras and more in one or two charge attacks that can down creatures far more quickly and efficiently then the average Beelzebufo or Pulmonoscorpius. Not only that but there eggs can be used to make the preferred kibble of the Paraceratherium. Meaning taming Pachys for eggs is also quite worthwhile
Tamed my pachy on craggs island, called it slappy. They are quite slow but the charge adds some speed in short bursts, I charge until out of stam and them set him to follow while he gets stam back and charge again, knocked out a couple of dodos while charging.
