They are speedy tanks, able to get high health whilst retaining mobility. The downside is that it's very large and it's annoying when random meganuera start attacking it but it's so large you don't know where they are... When they are not an issue this behemoth can clear a forest and have enough capability to carry all the loot and your entire tribe while being mauled by all sorts of beasts and still continue on and are too easy to tame... I suggest specialising stats for their purpose, speed and stamina for transport, health for PvP, weight and stamina for collecting...
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.
These are INCREDIBLY useful tames to have in mobile, and here’s why:
In Raids; In mobile, we don’t have cryopods. Due to this, turret soaking becomes a problem, in that it’s difficult and takes time to get all tames you need to soak to the enemy base. These guys are very fast, very easy to tame, and are tanky health-sinks even at low levels; making them the PERFECT soakers in mobile. need more? Go get some balm and mejoberries, and you’ve got your replacement in under 12 minutes.
Used as a construction tool, they’re the same size as a bronto, meaning you can easily build tall structures & tree platform bases using his sheer height. He has a lot of weight as well, meaning if you have an enormous amount of metal walls/pillars/ what have you, he can hold it for you.
Used for transportation, the same is true; he has SO MUCH WEIGHT! And he’s very fast, with 10 seats in his saddle. If you need to move base, he’s your man.
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.
This bad boi is useful on cliffs cuz you can push danger off just like my diplo a random guy with a giga started raiding us but they failed as they were pushed by my diplo the giga died with the rider lol 😂😂😂
