Thorny dragons are deadly to tame bc they spawn in groups of 2 and have tranquilizing venom in their needles. I recommend building a trap or placing some bear traps to then easily knock out and tame the large carnivore. Once tamed they act as good fighters, have a smithy saddle, tranq ballista of sorts, and most importantly: wood gatherer’s next I will be doing one of the following: reaper, rock drake, ravager, roll rat, karkinos
I think they should be stronger as tames. Not their stats but what if their bite attack would decrease the targets speed so a Morreallatops couldn't just run away and their torpor damage is to low I'd say. Please make Thorny Dragon viable.
Gathers wood fast and carries it at 1/5 weight stone is 1/2. Weak on the sides so if you really like this dino to patrol keep another dino with it to aid. Excellent at killing mantis to gathering organic polymer and chitin.
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.
No longer carries wood at 1/5 weight, now carries at 1/2 but can now be carried by argentavis and can farm wood similar to farming metal with an argentavis and anky, upgrade melee damage to get the most wood possible.
