Kibble Test[edit source]

On a lvl 31 trike, it took 7 kibble (using a 3x taming rate) --208.100.174.203 04:09, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Recent Trike stat buffs?[edit source]

I heard the Trikes were made faster and more dangerous recently. I did some testing on wild Trikes and my tamed ones and this is proving to be true. I didn't catch the changes in any patch notes. Hmmm. I got a 37.1% gain increase on Melee%. Not sure if the base damage got buffed or not. ---KazarSanaga (talk) 23:01, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Edit 1: I should mention I was testing in single player, not SoTF. ---KazarSanaga (talk) 23:02, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
Another tamed trike of mine had a 31.4 increase in melee%. Very strange. The numbers don't seem static anymore. ---KazarSanaga (talk)
Edit 1: So one Trike gains 37.1% and another gains 31.4% in melee. Perhaps they added hidden values? Genetic potential perhaps. Not sure, but this is interesting. I'll probably have to test this more later. ---KazarSanaga (talk)
Edit 2: One of my oldest Trikes, tamed many patches ago, only gains 25.2% melee increase. This is starting to get confusing, but even more interesting. ---KazarSanaga (talk)
It sounds to me like you're a bit confused about how that percentage works. It's not an increase of 10%, it's an increase of 10% of its natural amount - the value once it's tamed and taming effectiveness is applied. If it had 227% attack damage after you tamed it, each level-up would give 10% of that, which would be 22.7%.

Well, wow. That does make a big difference. Thanks for that. Kinda sucks even more though now that I lost that strong Trike (37.1%) in an accident during testing... ---KazarSanaga (talk)

I may have been uninformed about the stat percentages. But the topic is still very much alive as it appears the Trikes have received buffs to their base running speed and stamina consumption. They used to run out of stamina extremely fast and it wasn't really worth sprinting with them as they were still slow. I just need more people to confirm this, because if true, it could drastically change the taming strategy as Trikes would prove more dangerous. ---KazarSanaga (talk) 01:58, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
