Everyone saying the Diplo needs a tail whip attack and platform saddle, seriously if you want that get a bronto, the Diplo has its purpose and so does the bronto, making one into the other makes one redundant and totally useless. Brontos are attackers and portable bases, diplos are a hybrid of speed and capacity, no one would complain about a gallimimus that can carry eleven people and still have space to spare for three tonnes of cargo, but they do complain about a Diplo which is essentially that in terms of functionality.
I feel really bad for these guys.Sometimes I see them getting killed my raptors,terrorbirds,carnos,ect and everytime i see one getting killed i have that strong urge to help the diplo... C'mon terror birds or raptors mess with something your'e own size i feel bad for them i really do😭
I use them as cargo transports! Get two or three in a line and you have a metal carrying convoy. Appoint a Rex or other medium- large Dino and they’re perfectly guarded!
Absolutely wouldn’t trade my diplos for the whole ark. So helpful.
When taming to make it easier stand against a cliff or a good sized rock. I tamed one for my brother and it was a piece of cake with that technique. Also if you find that the place you find the diplodocus isn’t safe just get near it and lead it away. They won’t hurt you they just like to swat you around like they are playing a game of soccer.
Not as useless as you might think! A high-level spino was terrorizing a nearby river. I took my diplo (Dylan) and while the spino was focused on killing Dylan, I was using my crossbow and rifle to do damage to it. Spino ended up dead, while Dylan was at 2000 out of 3000 health, and I was not injured at all.
Love u Dylan
No, it doesn't need a platform saddle. No, it doesn't need to be able to do damage. It has plenty of uses without these, being able to move lots of resources quickly, clear bases of wild dinos without aggroing them, and being among the best for draining turrets, being able to run by them and soak any that hit. If you want a platform saddle and tail whip. Get a bronto.
