Can be used as a soak. Runs very fast has a crap ton of health and can probably be used to broadside shoot rockets off it's back while soaking turrets. This is assuming you get a health roll and level only health. You should see yourself at at least 37k health when fully leveled.
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.
So you all are saying that the diplo should get a tail whip attack and a platform saddle but someone else said no because it would literally just be a easier to tame bronto which I agree soooo what if the diplo got a… TEK SADDLE!!! With cool lasers because I’m pretty sure we have no herbivore tek saddles! What do you guys think?
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.
