    Giant Beetles used to be able to carry 1600 stones with no problems, I just tamed 2 that get fatigued at 700 stones...is this right or did I miss something?

    Mine has always given that msg at more than 500 stones. Guess I am too heavy.

    So I either dismount or don't gallop, that way he moves fine.

    I NEVER had one that didn't get fatigued over 500 stones. I've got 2 from the very beginning. It sucks of course, but what can we do?

    Bout time. Those beetles were unbalancing - carrying as much as a pack horse and ridable. This should put those haxxor mules in their place.

    I was able to ride mine tonight with no trouble while he was loaded up to the max. I would get a message saying he was fatigued if I ran, but I didn't rubber band at all while riding.

    They've been that way the 7 years that I've played. Get them over 500 stone, and they get fatigued when you ride them and try to run.

    Just out of curiosity:-

    Has anyone trained a giant beetle up to 125 dex to see if that has any effect on how much it can carry before becoming fatigued?

    too funny! my best laugh of the day, thanks!

    just tested and confirmed Storm's post - rider weight did not seem to influence stamina drain.

    I fully trained 2 and there's no difference.

    Mine are fully trained as well and no difference when riding. But as long as I don't gallop at full speed, I can always move at normal riding speed even if I get the fatigued message. Same thing with llama form when you have 0 stamina.

    If dismounted though, they do move faster and can follow you more closely. Attacks are similarly faster.

    Many thanks! I always wondered, but never quite enough to train up a beetle myself. :blushing:
