Okay, in my opinion, rexes are overhyped and is a bit of a pushover. I will explain why, and you don’t have to agree with me, I’m personally saying why I don’t really like them and what dinos are better in my opinion.
A - Rexes have abysmal dps. Generally, wild ones(not sure about tamed ones, haven’t used one) bite approximately once every 1-2.5 seconds, which is very low. Scorpions, raptors, therizino and heck, even a gallimimus has better dps than that and I didn’t even include the majority of dinos that have better dps than rexes.
B - Slowness. They are far to slow to escape any danger when low and can be easily shot down or just chased down by just about anything faster than a triceratops.
C - Not tanky enough for its dps and slowness. It just doesn’t have the hp to back up its low dps and speed and can be taken down by just about anything with around 600 hp and high dps(2-4 bites per second) with 20 damage or more. Dinos that can actually pull off this play style and have enough hp for it are ankylosaurus, basilosaurus, mosasaurus, doedicurus, woolly rhino and more.
D - Very low versatility. It’s only viable against low dps land tanks, swarms of low attack dinos and just about nothing else. It can’t swim well at all, it can’t fly and has no range attack, it’s too slow to be a rush down dino, doesn’t have enough damage to take down the toughest of tanks and just overall, not very good against anything else. Dinos that are more versatile than the Rex, similar size and have better matchups are the spinosaurus, therizinosaur, mammoth(sort of), woolly rhino and probably more I forgot about.
E - Not very useful for anything other than PVP/PVE. It doesn’t gather any materials particularly well other than meat and hide, isn’t a good travel tame due to its speed and very low agility due to size, can’t carry anything so it can’t be a transport tame and so on.
Okay, that concludes my reasons on why I personally do not like the Rex. I could very well be wrong about all of this, as it’s just based on my own observations and experience. I would personally recommend therizinosaur, spinosaur, woolly rhino, arthropluera, allosaurus, baryonyx and dimetrodons(plural, as they are best in swarms) as replacements of sorts instead of a Rex. That’s just my opinion though, so you don’t have to listen to me.
When breeding two max level rexes to have a super baby, DON'T EAT THE EGG!!!! I've done this twice on accident(meaning to drop it) and each time it takes me a couple seconds to register wtf I just did and then I have to wait to mate again. Sad day. Weekend ruined. Great way to start off the new year! Lol
The reason rexes have a tek saddle is that rexes are famous. Same with megalodons and all the other things that have tek saddles. But really, let's be honest, almost nobody has tek saddles. You have to complete a hard dungeon to get a blueprint, or pay big bucks! At least those are the two ways i know of. Im on mobile btw. Really, argy's and spino's should get tek saddles, (you can find more info on argy tek saddle idea in argy, somebody left a tip about it, it has lots of likes so it's at the top too.) Because they're REALLY useful tames to have, in my opinion. I actully on two of each. Im going to put this tip in argy, spino and rex, so you will see it there. Please ^ if you want argy's and spino's to get tek saddles!
Rex baby consumes meat at about 1 meat per 50 seconds. Each meat gives about 50 food, with a food drain of 1 food point per second. So.. 1 meat = 50 seconds of feed. 1 stack of meat is 1000 seconds/16 min. A stack of meat takes 12hrs to full spoil. So.. on 1x, at 6% maturity, a baby rex can be left to fend its own till juvi... this is even with a 2 hr safeguard to be very safe. Honestly... 5% would work also. Hope these statistics help!
The T.Rex should be able to break stone. I don't see why it can damage only wood and thatch (The same as a carnotaurus) but a chalicotherium Wich is smaller and weaker can break stone ( I don't know if it's only from the throw attack which could make sense).Ūp vōte if agree so devs can see aswell
Since rexs are the second best land carnivore (behind giga) I would recommend just leveling it for PvP. Like on all my 150 kibble tame rexs I go for 10k health then 500 melee damage and then put the rest of my levels back and forth between health and damage.
PS: A good 2nd-5th gen Rex can and will kill tamed gigas
