These things have absolutely RIDICULOUS amounts of stamina. Ridiculous. Level it a few times, and you'll be fine for any long distance travel. The rest of your points should go into melee dmg, health, or weight.
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).
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!
If you manage to tame one of these they are an awesome ground mount. They can climb sheer cliffs in a heart beat and have a 3 story vertical leap. They are fast, and durable. Mine is lvl 82 at the moment. I killed a lvl 14 alpha carno and only lost a third of my health. I feel safe on this guy and he can take me anywhere. Just look out for them in the redwoods. They are very tough to tame without a trap. One you have one they will become one of your favorites. They are great in the water too. Dump levels in health and damage.
Thylo's and R- Thylo's are in Fjordur. Both prowling around in the redwoods. I love these things. Anytime I want hide, which is often cause saddles need a ton, I hop on a Thylo and wreck all the carnivores in the area. I'm on the plains and this thing takes out packs of feathery raptors and rexes with ease. If I get in a tricky spot I just climb up the nearest cliff face or jump and run away. They are amazing and I recommend everyone have a few of them.
