Let me tell you something. Parasaurs are very smart and even though they are week they NEVER GIVE UP. WHY? It's because I have story with my parasaur. So in the wild I was taking a parasaur and in the wild they are not smart and do GIVE up. One hit on it, and the parasaur goes coocoo crashing into rocks and ALWAYS running to dangerous places. AND this was my first time playing ARK and I was so happy I tamed one(named him Pary) and so 9 seconds later a dilophosaur appeared! For me that was a big deal cause it was my first time playing so it killed me. I was thinking it will be over cause its night, my parasaur is probably gonna die and I lost all my stuff. So I decided to just carry on. So the next day, I wanted to look for some hide. Then I saw a parasaur on the beach and I'm happy that there is hide si right when I'm about to throw the spear at its head. I NOTICED IT WAS PARRY AND HE WAS CARRYING ALL MY STUFF! That's when I started to call every parasaur-Parry! For what he did!-Sasha
1. Long Range Scout. Paras have naturally high stamina, so they can cover distance without needing to rest. Plus their turret mode gives you alerts for nearby enemies (level Movement Speed to ensure you can outrun any threats you come across...RIP my very first Para)
2. Pack Mule. Paras have very high weight for the early game. Even low level Paras can carry a lot of stuff. Just jump on it's back when you're overencumbered and it will take care of the rest. (level weight to make sure your mount doesn't get overencumbered as well)
3. Turret. As mentioned, Paras have an in-built turret mode to root out enemies. It has a pretty long range too so if your out exploring it can come in handy. (level Health and Melee Damage in case your Para gets jumped)
4. Berry Harvester. By far the easiest way to get berries is to use a Para. Need Narcoberries to make Narcotics? Use a Para! Need Mejoberries for tames? Use a Para! (level weight to carry as much berries as you can!)
My name is ShinyChimchar01 and if you like my tip, please up to let me know! I've done the same tips on the Trike and Raptor and my next tip will be on the Carbonemys.
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.
