They're like raptors, but 5x more deadly, and here's why: 1- They deal bleed effect, so if are running from one and he bites you, your chances of escaping are reduced to 0% because you won't have enough speed to outrun them. 2- They deal WAY more damage than a raptor, like 2-3 times more damage. 3- They're stronger in packs. 4- Because they're native of aberration, they DO NOT glow in the dark, which makes ravager attacks harder to avoid during night time on aberration. 5- They can foking climb on zip lines to get you. 6- They can jump, so keep in mind that climbing on a rock to escape from them probably won't work. 7- Luring them to a stronger wild creature like a roll rat and make them fight also won't work, I saw a pack of 4 ravagers annihilate a paracer and then send me to the shadow realm.
To say this from my personal experience, the ravager or properly named cave wolf is an absolutely massive pain in the rear. They're basically a significantly upgraded raptor that is surprisingly more annoying to deal with. Aside from the use of a Bola, many of the techniques used to get rid of raptors simply do not work on the ravager, as leading them to large herbivores may lead to bigger problems since they can heal from a kill. Since they have more than twice the health, it can be difficult to pick them off from a distance, and their ability to jump and climb ziplines and vines makes them a real threat to escape from. Thankfully the Parasaur is capable of scaring them off, and I have even seen wild parasur scaring away ravagers with their calls. Just like the raptor, the ravager is a challenging enemy that can become an equally viable attack animal. The best advice I can give to anyone about preparing for taking on or attempting to rid there yard of ravagers, is to treat them like the threat they are
They always seem to be at places at the worse time, not to mention that they hunt in packs of 3 to 5. Escaping is almost impossible due to there bleed bite in packs which slowly turns you into a snack. And you don’t find them, they find you! Once tamed, they become very useful mounts. They are able to climb up zip lines, even if wild. They jump up to 3 walls high. And even have a pack boost as earlier mentioned. Best of all, they don’t glow in the dark, making it easier for them to kill you in the barren mushroom forest.
HOW TO TAME
You will need, 1 Megalosaurus, 1 2 x 2 x 3 stone doorframe trap with ramps leading to the ground, 1 crossbow/longneck, Tranq Arrows/Darts, and taming food of choice (Mutton is recommended)
First, Let the pack find you, wait it the mushroom forest
Oh Goodness. These things are on crystal aisles and It was my first te encountering them EVER. I thought they'd be a piece of cake to kill. After getting killed 4 times back to back my mind was changed. I'd rather encounter 2 Gigas and 5 rexes than deal woth them. They're like Haeyandadons on steroids and super aggressive
If you are stuck in the starting areas because ravagers and raptors are literally everywhere, I suggest a handy mount called the iguanadon, they are very fast and can run for a long time since while running they don’t lose stamina, I do not recommend fighting a ravager on an iguanadon tho, they can kill a raptor but can’t handle being overwhelmed by packs
