It you put them on aggressive and perch em on your shoulder, they warn you of any danger with a scream. Usually it’s a diplo or a compy. If it weren’t for my dimo I would’ve died hundreds of times, he once yelled so I left and the next day i went back and say a giga killing a pack of raptors.
Tame every one of these you see regardless of level. Up only melee and maybe some health. Once you have 20-30 whistle for them to follow you and attack your target. Hit a rex, bronto, or literally anything that can die once and watch as your hurricane of teeth tears it apart.
I tamed a lvl 15 female one and named it Nova and she was really good. She killed a whole pack of lvl 20 carbonemys without taking any damage and I didn’t do anything except stand there and watch in shock and awe. This is a MUST tame for everyone who reads this. I was only lvl 10 at the time I tamed it and now I’m lvl 40 and this creature has never failed to impress me.
If you are wondering whether to get these just know they are in my opinion one of the best in the game, I dont normally do reviews but these guys are insane, I was with 4 of these, all level 230s and encountered an alpha rex, these guys demolished it in a matter of minutes, all having around 2k health and 500 melee, they are incredible for cave runs especially swamp cave on rag, overall an amazing dino, best shoulder mount
If you get stuck by an raptor ,the dimorphon will kill the raptor fast. My dimorphon Danny saved my live seven times. Don’t go in a cave solo without an dimorphon. If you get nocked out your dimo will protect you.
Best tame for the time and narcotics. I have about 20 of these above lvl 200 defend my base.. They shred people along with my turrets. I also raid with 10+ of them. They make shooting at me impossible as they swarm people not their mounts. Use the spyglass to scope dinos or people and whistle attack target. It is an invaluable sniper tool.
P.S. Keep them close to your fabricator and smithy to level faster.
So it turns out that if you set this thing to aggressive and have it perch on your shoulder, it can shout at you to warn of incoming danger, which the Mesopithecus(Monkey) is also capable of, but will instead go “TAH! OOH- OOH!”. This is pretty useful in case you are near an animal that you won’t be able to survive an encounter with and don’t realize it. Dimorphodon will also throw a rather hard bite at your enemy to give you a fair hand in escaping, and may kill other creatures looking to prevent you returning home, however Mesopithecus is a better guardian because your monkey will throw balls of poop that slow the predator down, giving you the upper hand should it be that you should stand no chance should you decide to kill the predator. Either way both are quite effective at vocally warning you of danger ahead of time so you have time to correct your position to a safer location.
