If you have trouble with fall damage whwn you dismount your bronto, i learned a way to avoid dying when you jump off:
Park bronto near base
Tame a tall rideable creature (parac, diplo, mammoth, etc.)
Park tall dino close to brontos tail
If you position the second dino correctly, you can dismount your bronto, walk down its back & tail, and walk onto the second dino. You can then drop down from this dino and take greatly reduced damage, if any. Hope this helps 🙃
Amazing protectors. Loud as can be and shake the earth so much you almost can't see straight, but goodness, they can kill pretty much anything attacking you! Had a level 5 or 6 that took on a theri that had taken out my Diplodocus (I have the immersive taming mod, makes life easy). Killed it in seconds. Oh, added bonus, they can carry a LOT mine carries a house's-worth of supplies pretty much all the time. Slow, bit SO worth it!!!
Bronto's are a beast! Make a platform saddle, have mortar and pestles on it, carry spoiled meat and you will make thousands of narcotics in no time! Also a great thatch gatherer, would definitely recommend taming the Bronto.
Build a platform with furnaces and storage on it's back, take it out to a metal filled area, gather metal all whilst dumping it into it's inventory. When your done put all the metal into the massive amount of furnaces you have on it and smelt it up, then store it!
Mobil Command Dino. (MCD) this high Health powered Dino is great when taking Journeys to other servers and quickly need a place to build on that could give you an instant advantage over the noobs on the beach and threats on scorched earth. The higher the health, the more useful your MCD. Carry on, Explorers!!
As a vet ark player I have learned of the most valuable use for the bronto is its raiding capability. The ability to tank multiple turrets and species x wile still doing massive amounts of damage to plants and bases is one of the most valuable things in the game right now. High level bronto can reach 70-80,000 hp and cannot be enraged as a gigga can mix that with a few well placed mountable turrets, a decent saddle and it becomes even more of a raid tool Other then the Titan and turtles this is the most valuable raid Dino. Upgrade health only for raid status Brontos! Happy hunting.
This works with all platform saddle dinos, but if you want to load dinos (rexes and other big dinos included) you can build a open elevator up to the height of a titanosaur's platform and have a ladder up the back. You could even stack a quetzal on a paracer on a bronto on a titanosaur if the elevator is big enough
Make a step for when u are getting down from the saddle. I died getting of my bronto’s platform saddle. I had heaps of rare mushrooms on me, and lost them all... u dont want to learn this the hard way like i did...
We use this creature as a mobile hunting/taming base.
Just a platform saddle, then some other platforms for Argys and other birds to land on, some crates to carry berries, kibble or material for a quick taming pen.
If taming smaller Dinos, also build ramps for them to get up or set the bronto on follow and carry your tame home with a Quetz.
If taming taming bigger creatures, ride them home with the bronto on follow or set your tame on follow and ride the bronto home.
