I got 232 lvl para kill 2 deathworms at once lost only 4k of health still have 8k to spare. There powerful against flesh creature not so good against rock golems can kill 150 rex, 200 lvl dragon haven't vs a poison dragon yet and have large area attack with push back one tip just dont stop attacking and win most of time there stam is out of this world i can run for 15-20 min without refill overall there all round dino good attack powerful large holding weight can climb unlike the rex and alot of health.
I use my paracer as my cargo transport dino for short to mid distance. I use it to go to the redwood nearby and gather MASSIVE amounts of metal. Just hop off, get the metal, load up the paracer, then get back home. They can defend themselves quite effectively
A must tame because they are a mid-game mount and usually platform mounts are mid to late-game. So be sure to tame one but note: They run out of stamina pretty fast so I suggest you pump stamina into it.
