I dont have any idea why the developers made them look so small?ok I like how they look(just like in jurrasic park)but you can add more another version of dilos like raptors.cause in reality they where not this small and never spit venom or had gills.
Had a pack of about 10 of these early game. One day, I saw a therizinosaur wandering near my place and decided I had to kill it before it kills me. The dilos took it out in a flash with like 2 casualties.
I was walking the beach with my trusty and loyal dilo named venom. I left him behind a rock while I went to hunt some dodos for hide I thought that venom might kill the dodos and eat them before I get the hide. So I hunted but when I came back to the rock venom was gone!!! I whistled and whistled for him to come but nothing. He must have run off to kill somthing but it killed him! I was heart broken I kept wandering around the beach when a miracle happened I heard a dilo roar I doughted it was venom but I whistled anyways and it said 2
creatures heard it I over filled with joy but the dilo that came wasn’t venom it was almost better Delila my last dilo that I could have sworn was dead but no then here came venom I saw hearts on both of them then I said no way! There mating!!!!! The moral of the story is to always watch your dolls and to not give up
Either you can create this bond since it can spit poison that will slow your enemies down with a tamed one or kill them and forever wage war on them since they are so annoying your choice. I had this one named Tim and he literally killed Carnos all on his own since he is lvl 250. But one day it came to an end. He and I were just doing our normal raft voyages as usual but when we decided to stop, a bunch of terror birds attacked us. Tim spat at one and started to fight them. I decided to make the run for it to my raft since I was scared and was quite noob at the time. I managed to escape but Tim tried to follow me back onto the raft but the terror birds killed Tim first. Now, I shall exterminate all those terror birds I see.
I am lvl 73 and my base is on a cliff and I still use high lvl dilos (lvl 200ish) and they still are pretty good. Recommend taming this if your base is on a cliff. Put them on aggro and put stone in them and are awesome 😎.
For an egg farm, you need one male and as many female as you can afford, make wooden ramp and have them follow you into them and punch into position. Put them on passive. The eggs will roll down for an easy pick up.
Honestly the only things that I use these little guys for is:
2. Meat grinders (let them loose on any unsuspecting creatures)
3. House pet (I think they are adorable, even if you can’t really do much with them, I usually have 4 on roam in my house)
P.s. I don’t mean to allow “digi-animal” cruelty (it’s just that they are really good distractions if you need to run)
Useful for early game and late game.
Early game: tame a 5-15 leveled 100+ and they'll keep you safe from almost anything. (Easy to tame for beginners too!) Bola them and punch them and feed them raw meat.
Late game: tame as many as you want and put them wherever you want on your base area and put them on turret mode! You immediately got acid spitting turrets.
1. They spit first
2. Their foes is lower level than the dilo (Doesn't matter with passive herbivores)
3. Their foe isnt late game creature such as brontos theriz or carno or something like that.
They can be very useful to kill moschops, parasaurs and such sort since their spit stuns them allowing you to kill it before it can flee. Do tame raptors asap though since raptor pounce can neutralize a single dilo. Unless you have a pack. Dilos have crap stats and health is useless so pump health so that they live till the end of the battle. Good for hide and meat early game but A raptor is just better....
If ur a beginner avoid these but if u r advanced than just taming up an army can serve as a good defense unit because their spit will slow down creatures and then they will charge said slow creature and kill and eat.
