With the right rigs it makes the best gathering tame. Now I don't need 20 different tames for different things. But my heart is empty, and now I need to tame dinos just to make my heart full. All that aside. Highly recommend the mining rig with sadle bag attachments. There are other set ups on the map, but for the ones just getting started this is the one you want. It moves real slow when you ride it. So patience is a virtue here.
