These are definitely one of the best ways to start off a play through, i’d tame a parasaur and farm up a lot of narcotics. you can make a lot of traps for pretty cheap. you will need to be able to craft a large bear trap and some stone pillars you can lookup a full tutorial on youtube. then you basically will be able to harvest all the wood, fiber, and berrys you need to get you deep into mid game. the tame takes a long time but overall i would definitely recommend taming this beast.
