ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What is a thorny dragon used for? thorny dragon battling strategies in ARK: Survival Evolved.
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
This is the easiest of the wood gatherers to obtain. I'm a solo player on ragnorak. They don't wake up as fast as beavers and don't take as long as mammoths. It's a bit of a distance, but if you have a ptera I'd say find the highest level Thorny Dragon that you can find so it doesn't wake up too fast, then fly to the highlands and kill a sheep or two and mutton tame it.
