Very easy to find, easy to tame, get the saddle at level 9, so first ride collects just as good as trike if you up Meele Damage and moves much faster than trike. Good idea to tame if you are new/noob to Ark.
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.
Super easy to breed. It will take a while to breed em, but when u get the egg put 4 camp fires around each other light em put the egg in the middle and in about 5 minutes. Good berry picker and easy to raise. Good luck with ur para 😉
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.
