More Thylacoleo Utility Tips
Thylacoleo has a bleed effect that does % of hp damage over a small amount of time. i killed my first titanosaur with my thyla but attacking and running when it agro’d BUT you can’t let the bleeding deal the finishing blow. This just happened and my thyla and I didn’t get the xp.
Hit the sky button so people don’t make my mistake and miss out on heaps of xp 🤥
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).
Wonderful mount to grab, the best part is the climbing cliffs. Run right up to them and hit and hold the jump button, if you can do it you can climb the mountains. They also have a bleed effect that helps when dealing with large predators or high health dinos.
Yes, they are evil jump and pin guys sometimes they carry you off for a distance, best defence is to always be prepared with a strong spear on hand, when they stun wait till the timer is done and then jab away. I find an easy tame method, hit em from extreme range with a really strong long rifle and electrolized tranq darts or regulars. Keep mounted on a decent health tame and keep shooting till it goes down.
Oh and after taming, you can sit on them and fire your rifle while mounted, so they are great for taming more of their own kind.
