ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
For those end game items in Scorched Earth, a high weight Thorny Dragon is a must, smithys just don't have the room. It's the only way to be able to build some of the Ascended saddles, for example, a Paracer platform saddle. You'll need near 3000 weight for the job. One may even want to breed out the weight statistic so these items can be crafted easily.

I have 12 on platforms 4 pillars high scattered around my base. I have an issuse with dino spawns in the base. So they act as a long range needle launcher. Weigh down with sand because its weight isnt affected by the dragons buff. Set all to long range aggressive and u have a protected base. Add a few plant X for added assurance. I no longer have spawn problems. Found a ready to tame terror bird today too pretty neat.
