They're great for acting as bodyguards when you go to possibly dangerous areas, and for hunting since their spit slows animals down. Once I had 2 of mine attack a Carno while I shot at it, both survived and killed the carno.
I love thse little fuzzballs soooooo much! I ahve over 30 of these little guys and they make great guard dogs. Mine are all about level 70 at the moment as i haven't had a chance to level them up but i mostly pump on health, some melee damage as well but I take them out hunting when I'm riding my therzin and they take things out pretty quick. So id reccomed them. Love my little babies <3
If starting out then these dinosaurs seem to be one of the most easiest way's to get raw meat and hide, given they are a reasonable level (I'd stick to about 20 and below for starting out, anything higher could be really dangerous) along side 'Dodo's', 'Coel' and 'Parasaur's' (which are not aggressive) That being said, if tamed, their eggs which are made into kibble can provide most useful in taming more effective 'resource' dinosaurs such as the; Doedicurus (for stone) and the Ankylo (for Flint, Metal, Crystal and Obsidian). Although don't underestimate these small Dinosaurs, they can/will be very aggressive when nearby. What I found best to dealing with them at a lower level was the spear, attacking whilst 'back-peddling' aslong as you keep getting the hit in. Then harvest with a pick for more raw meat or the hatchet for more hide. Whatever your preference.
On their own, Dilophosaurs aren’t really useful, but in packs of 5 or more, they are extremely deadly. Also, their spit doesn’t just blind prey; it drains their stamina and drops their movement speed dramatically.
It's pretty easy to tame
1. Bola it (so it can't chase you)
2. Use a slingshot or a club (I call them beaty sticks) to knock it out
3. Add some meat (it shouldn't take much)
Also, remember to dodge the poison spit
Have a ton of hi-lv Dilos on neutral follow a hi-lv Raptor or similarly sized ride-able Dino on aggressive/wander, the effect is devastating for an opponent. Add Dimorphs for aerial support for PVP raid guard squads. The more the merrier, and breeding Dilos enmass becomes worth it.
Left these roaming on an Island. Send you blind as a fat hairy rat in the light when spat on by one of these. Ran into a tree and got attacked by compy's. Then the flying Ant's. A fascinating game to escape too.
