I never really was interested in taming trikes (I’m ADHD and have no patience for slow movement speed), but starting on Ragnarok, I decided I’d give it a go for once. So I tamed a pretty green level ~60 trike thinking, ‘hey, it’ll make an okay early game fleshy suitcase’. I was wrong. She earned my respect very quickly. When moving bases, I was set upon by a large pride of sabertooths. About 10, all higher than level 20. I thought I was going to be a gonner, considering my low level and crap gear. Then my meat suitcase killed a l l o f t h e m with a few agressive head tosses. So yeah, they’re a lot tougher than you’d imagine. A herd of these, with patience for their slow movement, is recommended for ages (and levels) 1-99. Impressive and easy to tame, with more than enough bang for your buck.
I can not stress enough to my friends how useful the trike is. Early game it makes a great pack animal. Late game in groups of three or four it can be used as a decent battle mount. Taming a trike early on can be a great way to start a large base and keep you well fed with berries.
A triceratops is a very special dinosaur in this game. It is easy enough to tame at a low level, yet powerful enough to take on raptors that could kill you easily. It can collect enough berries that you would never go hungry again, and still have some berries leftover to help tame more trikes. They are very slow but it can make up for it if you increase the weight, attack, and stamina stats. It is an extremely good pack animal because it can carry a lot, but still defend itself, especially if it is in a large group. Overall, the triceratops is one of my favorite and most versatile dinosaurs.
The best way to utilize the trike when tamed or untamed when tamed it can gather loads of berries for you or when it's untamed you can use it as a shield for instance like a carno is running after you and there's a trike try to run for the trike to get the carno to fight the trike so you can escape unharmed
