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
I would recommend one for player vs player gameplay because these guys can tank hits like it's nothing. these guys are very useful for travel to but maybe use for a mobile base for maybe taming in single player. I would put health, weight, food , and speed mostly. I hope this is useful for you ❤
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 really useful tame, but they don't do any damage unless they push you off a cliff. Their attacks are all pushing, no damage. Awesome giant walking prime meat machines to kill and harvest when you are taming something useful. Or tame one and name it the Magic School Bus and drive you and your entire tribe off a cliff into the Volcano.
They are probably the best pack animal in the game, for its size and carry weight it moves super fast allowing it to quickly transport huge quantities of supplies over long distances. It's recommended to pair it up with some other animals as guards as it can't do much in a fight and even though it has a massive health pool it regens health pretty slowly.
A long time ago, I tamed a diplo while my tribe was f*cking around and I brought him up to the main part of the base and they were like wtf then I was like all aboard the diplo bus and I only leveled speed weeee
