It's little kick attack can be used to mine any ore node effectively which is the best for metal seance it can smelt metals four at a time with no other resources, they also need sulfur to eat, can be healed with fire, and poop silica pearls.
Although it doesn't land, the Phoenix regains stamina by flying idle in the air, ridden or not. It craps silica pearls, eats sulphur, and its C gathers like an axe. Hold space for its dash, right click for the fireball, and everything but the C ignites people aflame. It can smelt and cook stuff, but sadly charcoal don't happen when you put wood in it. DISSAPOINTMENT : IMMEASURABLE
It is very useful to snag Wyvern eggs or kill rock golem,if you're putting up with wyverns just hold space on pc,the fire is so aggressive all wyverns rendered will catch on fire even fire Wyverns or Wyvern corpses.and for rock golems the Phoenixes fire burns it for considerable damage.
The weight is CRAP so you will have to either drop all a TON or not cary anything on your character. Also don’t bother leveling weight because it goes up be like 3 lbs per level, my 150 I just tamed has 130 weight
Taming is a pain in the butt. However it is worth it since this thing is a refining forge, camp fire and heat source all in one. It can cook your meat, it can refine raw metal, and it can keep you warm during the nights. (Xbox one version)
