If you want to go and farm up mountains and are in a tribe of 10or more people it is very easy to get resources as you can up their weight a ton. Have at least 2000 stamina and quite high movement speed. It’s also worth having around 1600 health. Picture this. You are up a mountain with ten tribe members on the diplo. They all have... let’s say 2 metal picks. Flak armour, a metal sword and a assault rifle with a lot of bullets. 5 gets Of and starts mining. A Rex pops up and the still boarded 5 people shoot it. I when it gets too close diplodocus shoves it back and it dies of being shot. And you carry on getting metal and other resources.
You will not realize how great of a tame is thing is until you get one with one that is above 10000 HP. I would recommend this as the first thing to tame right after you can get it’s amazing for a early game tank because of its massive health pool and it can out run animals like the Rex and most animals will ignore you if you are riding on one of these. Best thing is this tame has a lot of weight. Overall a amazing tame to have at early and mid game
These dinos are usefull for many things such as tanking if no turtle is around also i understand that you could use a turtle instead but try this in your next raid it could save your life send in the turtles and then bring the diplos make sure you have at least 3 of these guys they have the health and weight of a bronto with much more movement speed also functions as super fast 10 person getaway in case the raid goes wrong this tactic is especially useful if the tribe you are rading is setup on a mountain easy kills because of knockback have like 3 people on the diplo and the rest on rexes and you will be fine make sure the 3 people the diplo have a steady supy of rockets of the diplo dies then you have 2 more to mount knockback is the best part of this tame this dino can knockback rexes and allos very usefull and if u dont see any other use just have your teibe go on a jurrasic world type adventure take good care of these guys they also gather berries mildly so dont rely on them
