Useful in pvp as it has an ability to alert owner to any nearby enemy players and is signaled with its glowing horns. Also can assist in looking for dinos to tame as it has an ability to alert players to any max level dinos within its render distance.
Appearance: similar too a normal young deer or goat but with hooves more like a horse, has extremely vibrant luminous color patterns and two small glowing antlers. Size: around two feet long and a foot and a half tall. Uses: can see a max level creature or enemy player or tamed creature with its strong vision, burns nameless and reapers weakening them and forcing nameless into the ground too avoid getting burnt, also provides light and are cute little beasts making them good companions for exploring the dark lonely depths of the caves.
If you are raising reapers nearby make sure they are on passive when shinehorns are born. Reapers will eat newborns even after they have grown out of baby stage and are on default "attack target" setting. They dont bother the bulbdogs though for some reason.
They keep nameless away when glowing, but Reapers still tried to attack me. So if you’re going to Bio Luminescence, they’re useful. But be careful while on the Surface. (Bulbdogs will keep both nameless and reapers away)
