So many people say, "Parasaur is the worst tame." They are all lying. With a Weight/Speed focused high level parasaur, you can get away from everything after you, plus have them with you when out gathering resources. They even swim pretty fast.
Since I’m at level 85, I only tame the parasaurolophus for one reason: sheer boredom. However, I don’t just feed them to some random Sarco or Titanoboa soon after. I just carry them to a predator-free area with other parasaurs and unclaimed it, no harm there. No, seriously, that’s exactly what I do.
In my opinion the best starter dinosaur you can get.
Decent movement speed with good stamina, an overall okay berry farmer with good weight and highly mobile. And this dinosaur has got very low saddle requierments and you can also shoot from it‘s back.
The parasuar has had its base damage buffed to 12, base weight buffed to 480, and it’s wild weight gain was raised to 9.6 per level. This makes parasaurs carry only slightly less weight than a mammoth. Parasaurs have had a huge buff.
