FOR AN EASY TRAP:
1.build 3 stone foundations, 9-12 stone walls, 6-9 wooden ramps and 5 stone dinosaur gateways
2- place gateways in a rectangle formation(with one ‘end’ missing as you only have 5 gateways)- the below pattern represents the formation required
x represents the side missing
3.place the foundations on the missing side to complete the rectangle
4. Place walls(3 high) on all foundations
5.starting at the top place ramps leading to the ground the tops of all walls
Congratulations, your Rex trap is complete now all is left is to find that juicy high level and bait him up the ramp where he will be trapped.
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
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!
TLC patch to be added in March 2018 to add a terrain bug fix that will allow it to not get stuck on rocks and add a roar that will force players (and maybe creatyres too) to poop themselves. Like so people can see!
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
From my experience my rexes have layed a bunch of eggs I have 2 females and 2 males and I was able to get 120 eggs in the past 2 weeks however you may not have the same luck, however taming 3-4 females and a male should enough to supply you with plenty of red eggs to tame quetzals and plesiosaurs
Definitely a must on pvp servers. Good to have a mix between tanks (20k health) and damage dealers (400+ melee). If you have the means definitely breed them for damage buff/resistance. Working on third gen Rex's now :)
One of the tames most people on pvp servers have. It is a good mount, while still being a fairly easy tame. That's why people stack up on rexes, and they can tank a lot. A group of five rexes can definitely take down a tamed giga.
Good for getting prime because they only will get attacked by the allosaurus Rex and gigas recommend getting a low level first and then moving on to tame a higher level later on rather than taming other dinos for collecting prime
Just having a Rex in your base will encourage people not to mess with you on a pvp server. Regardless of level, Rex are a scary thing to see (and remember, people without telescope have no idea what level it is till they get closer than they want to be, so even a weak rex will scare off anyone yet who's yet to find crystal
My personal favorite dinosaur and travel companion the rex is the best dinosaur for defense and hunting. It is like a ward for smaller predators and has an awesome roar that has a cool down period. They can carry a lot of weight and move very fast even when you're so heavy you can't run anymore. An astounding taming mount. Park one near a tame that's unconscious and most animals will stay away. Can carry alot of meat and prime meat for taming carnivorous animals. Gathers alot of trophies for offerings to the obelisk when you kill the right animals with it.
