Cool pvp battle stance:
Setting: redwoods, large portion of enemy tribe coming through in a few seconds
Creature 1: deinonychus (ridden by human, clinging high up to redwood tree, preferably at least 10
Creature 2: thylacoleo (ridden by human, clinging high up to tree, ready for pounce, preferable at least 3)
Creature 3: griffin (ridden by human, flying high in the sky, human on back with RPG, at least two)
Procedure: when the enemy comes close, use the thylacoleos to pounce smaller creatures or humans, and use the deinonychuses to kill the larger ones. The griffins go into dive and, when close to ground, passenger fires rocket. Griffin does slam, then rises back into sky and repeats. You have the enemy down in a matter of minutes with few casualties, and you have struck a major blow against an enemy tribe.
Up if you want more!
Tame them by getting their eggs. Use a whip while you're grappled to a flyer. They need five fireplaces to hatch. It doesn't take that long for them to grow, but to hatch them it's thirty minutes. They can be found easily on the white cliffs along with their eggs. I don't care if you like this or not I just wanna give tips.
These are probably the best overall animal on Valguero, it can be a pain to get a good level egg (250 or above) but they can climb up stuff, they can slightly glide, and they do bleed damage (they are also fast) you just need about 10 torches in a hotish area and you can hatch it
Allo bleed is 5% per alpha attack, Deinon bleed is 1% per 5 attacks. The bleed status effect in the corner of you screen stacks up to 5 I think, and all five together do 1% of your total hp. People were getting confused about the bleeds.
I had managed to snatch an egg that had level 140 parents had was excited to hatch my first Deinonychus and took it back to my house and then put down a bunch of standing torches to warm the egg. I went to drop the egg in the middle of the torches and looked and saw the egg had not been dropped. Then I heard a heart dropping munching sound and realized that I had eaten the egg! Moral of the story: make sure you press Left trigger and not Right trigger on console when dropping eggs you plan to hatch!
If you have a deinonychus, it can make taming awkward flyers like argies and quetzals much easier. If you don’t want to make a trap You can latch onto the flyer from quite a distance and then pull out your tranq gun/bow. The creature will try and get away (in the case of a quetz) or attack you (in the case of and Argie, idk if they can latch onto griffins or snow owls, but both of those would attack too) but if you’re latched on, there will be no escape. Once your deinonychus runs out of stam or your targeted flyer drops, the deinonychus won’t take any fall damage. I also think it may work on a mana, but don’t be too disappointed if it doesn’t. I knocked out a 150 Argie with my deinonychus and no trap, but then again, I have a 281% dmg longneck.
There’s this bug with creatures that can jump up walls (the ferox and deinonychus) where if a yuty fear roars you and you jump onto a wall and latch, your camera angle will be super weird and sideways. The only way I know of to fix this is logging out/restarting your game. Or just don’t jump onto stuff if you’re fear roared.
