There was a Time when my Diplo saved our tribe from a alpha Carno by pushing it off a cliff. Sadly, He also fell with it and we couldn’t save him in time. His sacrifice really saved us from a total wipe. RIP Max
Just today, I was on a mining run at the central volcano and my quetzal was near completely encumbered from the metal, so I was just slow as heck. I tried to whistle follow but it she was just too slow and heavy. I told her to rest so I can eat when lo and behold, there was a diplo egg in the open. Without hesitation, I made it a snack for my long way home. Then I rode my quetzal downhill south when the mother of my meal nudged us forward, accelerating our current speed for a short time before repeating a few more times. Then after a raptor pack halted her progress, it was just the two of us out of there. We proceeded home, very much grateful for the actions a mostly-useless creature provided for our long journey home, as even in the wild they have at least two good used: burst propulsion regardless of weight, and danger- bait.
Thank the ARK gods for this unexpected boost to the conquest of the island,
I was just walking around not far from my base when I see a diplo without noticing the cliff it’s coincidentally standing by. As I’m looking at it I think: why not, I have the food, I’ll just tame it. So I go over to it getting ready to tame it and I notice something...
First, It’s already tamed.
Second, it has a saddle.
Third, there is a player in the saddle.
And fourth, there is this mischievous vibe to the player, as if he sat there on his diplo next to the cliff on purpose just to troll people who were playing ark when they know they should probably be getting some sleep instead. Well... that’s exactly what the case was, I looked up at him pleadingly but he had no mercy and in a second I was yeeted off the cliff. BUT I HIT A TREE AND DIDNT DIE. So naturally since I was close to my base and wasn’t going to stand for that injustice I ran over there, grabbed my army of dimorphodons, and all he heard was a whistle before he got swarmed by my army of flying demons. I laughed evilly as I watched that frekker get ripped to shreds.
Oh and I found his base shortly after, but I wasn’t so cruel as to raid him. I was WAY worse. Instead, I left some of the meat from his diplo on his doorstep, knocked on the door and ran. What? I had already cooked it for him.
I was out Raptor hunting when I came across a Diplo that seemed to have appeared right next to me out of nowhere. For a moment I think it’s a Bronto, but I quickly realise that it’s a little small for that, so I go over to check what it is. “Diplodocus” is what appears, much to my delight. I’m about to let it be and continue my hunt when I notice it walking towards me. A little cautious, as I am with any Dino I haven’t encountered before (I’m a noob) I walk to the side to try and see if it’s following me or if it’s just a coincidence. Nope, definitely locked on. Worried now,I quickly leave the game to check Dododex if, for whatever stupid reason, Diplos are aggressive. When I discovered it was completely the opposite, however, I eagerly returned to the game, then laughed as I let the Diplo yeet me around the beach. I lead her back to my home and wedged myself in the corner of some stone foundations so she could continue to play with me while I tamed her. I wanted to name her something cool, but Dippy just suits her!
I Play on switch but one day I stole a diplo saddle and tamed a level 80 one. My tribe was scattered and unorganized so I got it and picked them all up along with another guy and we moved and built a new strong base
Today sadly my Diplodocus Littlefoot died. (Seriously his name was Littlefoot) I had him always beside my house as a gaurd. Sadly, he died to a couple of raptors. I killed the two raptors with Storm, My own raptor.
I was filled with sadness and rage and proceeded to get onto Storm and kill everything (Except my pets, the trikes, and those therizinos at the canyon near my house)
Here's a story of how a Diplo saved my life, so, one day I was going on a metal run with my parasaur(I was low level) when suddenly my parasaur came under vicious attack from a swarm of angry dragonflies, soon it was devoured alive and I picked up its metal, but then I was too heavy to move, so I sat for a long time dropping things until I saw a huge creature with massive teeth running straight towards me! The creature turned out to just be a Diplo though so I fed him berries and used him to carry the metal back home,
BEGINNERS! For some odd reason I got a girl and a boy and I just heard that you could mate creators SO I MATED DIPLODOCUSES! And guess what I got? TRIPLETS!!! And the hole diplodocus family names were dumpy, lumpy, Shlumpy, Crumpy and Frumpy. I had to kill shlumpy and crumpy cause I ran out of space lol
When i first started ark (easy mode) i had tamed diplo called daisy, she was a smart girl, if me and my tames get attacked by a dilo, she would push them in water and let them drown, but sadly that save glitched and i can no longer get it back, now im playing on hard mode and im trying to get a diplo that looks like her.
Sooooooooooooo when i was taming my second diplo it nudged me to cnidaria filled waters. I escaped unharmed while the diplo was still nudging me like nothing happened. The naiveness of these guys! The ark gamepedia wiki even said its temperment was naive, exclusive to diplos.
