More Spinosaurus Utility Tips
These are stronger than the rex, and tame one of these beasts instead of some old rex. 1. they get an underwater buff when up to mid body in the water and farther. 2. on two legs their attacks are faster and stronger then a rexes but they walk slower,and on four legs they are faster, but not as strong. If a tamed one is following you, they will do this automatically, when riding you must do it on your own. 3. They're easier to tame then a rex! So if you're debating on taming one of these bad boys, or the infamous rex, choose this dude. These beasts need more recongition. One like=one spino fan!
I posted a tip on the fact that Spinos are better than rexes, and tbh, they still are. The tip has above 600 likes. I did end up taming a pair of rexes, and breeding them. They had a baby rex that I painted blue and fully imprinted, and pumped all its points into melee. And guess what? I've only pumped a few points into melee on my spino.... AND THE MELEE IS ACTUALLY COMPARABLE! I rest my case. Spinos are also verrry fast. Lol my Spino has WAYYY more damage than my Giga. One like=One respect for Spinos!
Spinos are really, REALLY, good. First, these things can switch between standing on 2 legs(allowing them to turn on the spot, and deal more damage, but be slower, even outdamaging a rex on 2 legs) and 4 legged mode(where they will do leas damage, but be way faster, and have a huge turning radios) you cannot use the 2 legged mode underwater, only on land, underwater u can only be with 4 legged mode. If a spino enteres water(a river, lake, inside an ocean, and so on) it will get a damage buff, health regen buff, and speed buf, making it a lot stronger. The buff is permanent as long as u at least touch the water, and lasts 30 seconds outside of it. The spino is very good at traveling, as most aggresive dinos(raptors, carnos, and so on) will become neutral towards you. The spino also has great speed on all 4, is quite slow on 2 legs, and is even faster with the water buff. It is also extremely powerful.mode. It also attacks faster than a rex. The spino also harvests a ton of meat and hide.
This beast is my preferred alternative to a rex and in all honesty the Spinosaurus seems to be generally better with the only bad stat being weight. This amazing dino excels both on land and in the water and get an increase to attack speed and movement which makes them even more deadly. They also seems to have a higher dps, along with two attacks that can only be used in certain stances, 4 legged stance offers a simple bite, while the 2 leg stance offers claw slaps (or something idk) which are executed faster and are much more powerful; they can also trample smaller creatures. Because of Spinos quick speed they are a pain to tame when they flee which makes a trap viable but not necessary.
10/10 from me, exceptional creature.
TLC patch coming in March 2018 to add the ability to swap between 2 legged mode (faster attacks and ability to attack with claws) and 4 legged mode (Faster movement), as well as increased turning radius, movement speed, damage, and health regen while in water and for a short time after leaving it. Like so people can see!
