To all the people saying the dinopithecus sucks, or this isn’t a dinosaur blah blah blah..kick rocks. One this isn’t 2017, we have a whole Arsenal of dinos that aren’t dinos, too include dragons and space whales, even baby stealing platapus, so get dumped on. Two, the same old same old two legged reptiles and 4 legged mammals were getting old. People grew tired of using the same whole rexs for bosses and thaylas for caves. This is a breath of fresh air, and it’s a modest one at that. HP and Damage is on par with thyla/shadowmane, but with interesting twists such as helmets instead of saddle(more armor but degrades) and can throw poop and grenades. I tamed my first 145 yesterday and I’ve been completely happy with it in these early days of the new dlc!
It's climbing is fast but wild and hard to control. One of the worst things about it is trying to use the spy glass while riding. His head always blocks the view, no matter which direction you look. I find it's best to use the spyglass while climbing on something. His attacks are easily interrupted and it can be difficult to get off an attack while getting hit repeatedly. Recommend you learn how to do jumping ground pounds. It's their most reliable attack and strongest, but doesn't affect flyers. The attack is stronger the higher your falling from. Don't forget the helmet is left behind when you cryopod it. Need to have extras because they get damaged fast.
Nearly the same base stats as the Shadowmane but more melee.
When in a pack the bleed is applied after you do the battle cry and the mate and pack boost stack, you can imagine the damage. Melee scales very well. The poop slows and drains, making this a very good high damage hit and run animal. The only thing holding it back would be the lack of a saddle but that’s easily remedied with a helmet. If you’re going to using the throwables, throw poop first to slow and then a grenade for efficiency. Could be very good in pvp with a pack and the bleed could potentially shred through high armor targets.
