Thylas are the best dinos to take for artifact hunting above ground & Basilos for underwater. B.C(Before cryopods) tribes would breed a pair of them outside the ice cave & then have the baby follow inside the cave & raise Thylas there. Compared to Sabers & Baryonyx, Thylas have more utility & have both overpowered stat wise.
Thylas are good travel dinos, and they have the ability to climb on trees (only the redwood trees sadly) and mountains. They also have a high jump. They also take reduced fall damage. They are also good scouting dinos due that they can climb tress as I said before.
Hey, don’t you guys think there should be a thyla tek saddle? I think there should be more tek saddles, bc there’s only 5 rn when there could be a lot more. Plus, imagine what the ark devs could think of with a thyla tek saddle!
Climb the large Redwood tree with your tamed Thylo. You can turn and face toward the ground (just like the wild ones!) You will get crosshairs. If a smaller wild creature is below, you can aim, pounce, and it will chew on the prey for a few seconds (just like the wild ones!) Enjoy.
Thylacoleo are capable of pinning down flyers in mid-flight (anything but the Quetz and Wyvern, I believe), other Thylacoleo, and even Therizinos. You can also jump from object to object by holding down the jump button while pouncing from a tree or cliff (have to hit it at the right angle, however).
Absolutely brilliant and really useful. Would definitely recommend taming one of these. They have great attack damage, health is also great and they are soooo useful for getting around the island (really fast and really fun to ride)
