Good tanks for raids! Use as a frontline attack in front of Brontos or Gigas etc, can push tames back when attacking so you can use this for defence too. Their high speed allows you to run from turrets when on low health. Worth it when passive tamed as the low kib needed means you can tame more.
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
