I have a stegosaurus called Strega and she’s a GOD, can kill five giant beavers in a few swings, has very high health, doses decent damage, and helped me and my only tribe mate, my dad to tame our first giant beaver.
Stegosaurus’s spikes at its back gain protection against turret and its spikes have armour. But trikes does it better when it comes to blocking against turrets as it has more armour on the trike’s head than the spikes of a stegosaurus.
They’re great adventuring dinos because Raptors and Kapros can’t knock you off, and they collect tons of berries and thatch. I used mine to collect rare mushrooms and rare flowers in the swamp. Her name is Giratina. She’s awesome.
So I just casually decided to tame a stego no PvP cus we were low on narcos and with one tail whip on them bushes I got like a 100 and when I went back to base I went back with 10000 narcoberries yeah that's right wayyy better then trikes
If you don’t want to run around gathering fiber and wood to quickly build a base last moment before the Allosaurus pack nearby spots you, if you want to tame Argies quickly and effectively, if you want to take out raptor packs quickly, you will need a stegosaurus.
I think its best use is harvesting berries. It is basically the midgame trike, although i like the trike more with combat. The stego has a slow attack, but is has a large hitrange, and so it harvests lots of berries at once. It also has a decent carrying capacity. I suggest to upgrade weight and melee.
These guys are the best starter tame on aberration. They’re tanky and can deal a lot of punishment, also they will get you berries and mushrooms easily in mass. You can confidently live off of mushrooms without ever having to worry about food and water when you have a stego!
