They may have toned their power down, but my 191 rex w/ 520% melee took down a lvl 40 Theriz after it attacked me in about 5-6 bites. Doing barely any damage to the rex or myself. (On an official server) the people that suffered severe loss fighting these maybe left out a lot of detail like if they were trying to tame it and letting it hit their dino. In a strictly combat situation, they don't seem to pose much of a threat.
If you find this thing RUN it took me out in two hits and completely demolished my home and murdered my raptor and my little otter cuddles please like to pay respects to my little cuddles kept me warm on the cold nights
I started on a new server I made a thatch base and tamed a high level parasaur I went offline as soon as I came back on my base was destroyed and my parasaur had been brutally murdered and I was standing face to face with an oversized chicken
In the summer of 2019, I had just finished of my base and was living happily when suddenly one day I heard this beast outside my front door. I was scared cuz I couldn't run anywhere.I was only lvl 39 at that time but only had a raptor and a trike. I watched helplessly as it wandered closer and closer. I had now realized that I can only fight. I equipped my rifle and then...BOOM! I had shot at it! it came running towards me and started smacking my wooden base. My raptor got hit and started fighting and so did the trike, BUT DAT THING RIPPED DEM BOTH APART IN UNDER 30 SECONDS!I shot at it again and the next thing I saw was its massive claws upon me... THE END(press F to pay respects for claw(raptor) and spike(trike)
