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.
These are really great for trips around the ark. Justgrab your bird and then use your bird to grab the para and you can detect players and their tames. I always keep one around my base set on player and tame detection.
Parasaur is the best starting mount. With their decent weight capacity and alarm ability makes it great for any gathering journey, especially for those with realistic settings. Set its alarm to detect creatures and into turret mode. It is a traveling trip alarm pinpointing the dangerous creatures at a distance. You can also activate its ability while mounted.
