Other Beasts of Bermuda Guides:
When you first spawn in chances are you'll have no idea what you're doing. The best way to start out is to immediately sniff out a water source and go straight to it, rexes have a huge water drain so unless you want to get water every 5 minutes that's the first thing you're going to pump your 5 points into. After you've gotten your 5 minute dose of water I suggest trying to find carcasses nearby, should there be none just keep walking and sniffing until there is one.
If you eat a carcass and there's still some left I suggest camping it, you'll need to milk every second of growth you can if you want to make it to adult. Then, once it's gone it's time to move, don't carry it with you, it'll slow you down and spoil in your mouth eventually.
The "I Keep Getting Killed" Niche
Choose a camouflage skin, choosing a good skin is just as good as getting 3/3 points in "Sneaky", with a colorful skin you will get spotted every single time without fail and at a later point in life rexes have crappy stamina drain so choose a CAMOUFLAGED skin. If you make your skin of good shades of greens you can hide in the grass and literally nobody will know you're there. 3/3 points in Sneaky means nothing if you possess a colorful skin. You are hunting humans, not actual dinosaurs, humans are very observant and can distinguish color much more than any animal can.
Second, steer clear of any dinosaur and run the moment you hear footsteps unless you know that dinosaur is your age or younger, if it's your age run away unless you're hungry and want extra food. Might I also mention flesh grazing pteras are a beast? But here's the thing; if you get in a cave they'll be too fast for such a small space since they're hit n' run they'll likely crash into something so if you're suffering head to cave, if there are none nearby back yourself up against a mountain, if they go for your side and hit they'll crash, if they go for the front of you they will likely crash and no ptera wants to take the risk since it's mainly instant death once they break their wing in front of something big, unless they have good talent points.
Finally, the cold hard truth, you're a rex, you can't escape something if it's faster than you and that's the end of the story best you can do is start running when you see it. Don't trust other rexes that are bigger than you either or rexes that are together they WILL kill you, the most friendly rexes seem to be the ones that are equal your age or smaller and alone. Also, reminds me, beware of any deep looking lakes or watering holes, something is likely lurking there so it's okay to drink out of them but just be observant.
First thing: get water drain to at LEAST 2/3 and hunger consumption to 1. From there, go into damage, health, and intimidation. Water talent points are almost useless, you're slow, weak in the water, and stamina is at cost, should anything be in the water especially if it's bigger than you- it'd be over, the best water talent points could do is help you during a flood so maybe at least try to get some points in swim speed. Overall, it's your choice.
Remember, talent points define you and your playstyle. It's best to shape them off of what you will or won't be doing the most.
Any new rex player may think they are superior "I am strong, stronger than anything, I'm a rex." that is not true, when you hunt you need to be reminded this is not real life, the herbivores will fight back if they're in a herd and you will die because you are ultimately slower than them, don't bother hunting herds unless it's small, as in, 2. Or, you can hunt herds of 3 or 4 if you're a really strong rex in a pack. You can also hunt large herds like paras, lurdus, etc, solo if they're all small in size.
Also, keep in mind of water you can have overconfidence when you go to swim, if you don't have points in any water-related stress relief your comfort WILL drop fast, sometimes you can't make it fully across without losing at least SOME health, that's how rapidly it drops when you swim. I recommend just putting points into swim speed so you don't have to be in there too long. In fact, sometimes you WON'T make it over, more specifically if you're below .5 you can die of stress if the length is long enough.
Oh, Look, More Rexes!
The sentence you'll think moments before your death. Let me break the truth to you; any rex group out there will kill you without hesitation. You'll die. There's nothing you can do. But, yes, there is, don't approach Rexes, don't follow the scent of another Rex, don't take another rexes food if its bigger than you or grouped. However, by the time you see a rex group it's likely already too late.
Yes... Megapacks are in this game too but they're rare. I recommend just logging out if you hear a rex group close by, you're going to die if you run, you're going to die if you stay still. Might as well log out.
The best type of rexes to group with, are, as I said, rexes that are smaller than you or equal age and that are alone, because why let you into their pack? They've already found their buddy and more food couldn't hurt. Also, unless you're bigger than them by 100 or so you're basically dead.
Finding Food and Hunting
Sniff and walk around until you get the pleasing scent of food, the most common ribs that will spawn are very small ribs but every little hunger point does count. Also, try not to move too far from water unless you have some points in water drain. You basically do this until there's nothing left in the area.
Everything needs to migrate eventually, herbis, carnis, everything. Soon, food will run out and your chances of finding more are slim, you'll need to move onto a new lake and eat the spawned carcasses on the way, if you're lucky you'll find a baby herbis or carnis, NEVER hunt something that's bigger than you unless you're in a group. Forget hunting if you're a fresh spawn, unless you're hunting other fresh spawns. Second of hunting, you don't need to stalk unless your prey is far away or it's a fast animal. In that case, stalk until it starts running then go right after it, don't back down because you're out of stamina just follow it while you walk, it's a part of hunting. Time.
Sometimes, you won't be able to find any players and the carcasses you find are too small or you don't find any at all. During tough times like these is why I suggest at least 2/3 in hunger consumption. But don't fret, eventually, soon, you will find something to eat. If the server is barren of players or carcasses you can always log out and try again later.
Adult Life and How to Make It Stay That Way
When you're a young one you should find any other solo rexes out there and band up with as many as possible, this will keep you alive, increase your comfort, open up new creatures you can hunt since you're a pack, and is just overall more fun for you. When all of you are .9s you'll be furious and feared, you can almost hunt anything as a pack of 4-6 not including very large apatos.
Taking on this strategy is a smart approach and a long adult rex life though be wary of a few things. One, never meet with someone unless you group them (highly obvious) and two, never fully trust a rex you just meant. If it's hungry enough, it might turn on you so don't let your guard down. Ever.
I'd also like to mention you will die. Yes, you will die several times as an adult especially if you're new to rex. Just like I die several times as an icthy, what we both, me and you have in common is that we're new to the creature so it's okay and very normal to die loads of times but eventually you will adjust, learn every mistake, recgonize every scenario, and think about how you could've done it better, you'll learn new tricks and how to get out of some situations. It takes time, multiple playthroughs, and dedication and love towards this creature but yes.
Yes. it will happen.
