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.
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.
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.
Absolutely wonderful dino to have when you’re starting out on a new map. Just started Crystal Isles today, caught a high level one and was reminded of how much of a godsend they are. Parasaurs are awesome pack mules and are lifesavers when you have low weight and need to gather a lot of resources. They’re also great for moving around to find better areas for a base but they are a bit slow. They can and will defeat weaker carnivores as well. I had one on the Center that killed a good amount of raptors and a few Carnos and saved my ass plenty of times. The higher level, the better! Very underrated and very useful creature to have. 11/10, a good boi/gurl.
Tek parasaurs are a super important early game tame. Capture and tame at any level to get a breeding pair. You then have harvesters and transportation but more importantly a potentially endless supply of metal, oil and electronics. Keep breeding and hatching eggs early on and it will help you get those early tech pieces before you perhaps establish a more high volume source for same.
They are very good early game games (way better than the patchy), it can gather berry’s like a boss which are used for food and for taming herbivores and they can detect nearby enemy’s and can rotate to scare away medium sized creatures.
