They are absolute beasts at everything. Jacks of all trades. And more.
They run faster than wolves and sabertooths, they have a weight stat that rivals rexes and mammoths, their health can be pushed higher than any wolf or saber as well, and can gather chitin/keratin at ridiculous amounts per kill, their damage rivals wolves and sabers, can knock down trees in 1-2 hits, they have what seems to be a nearly infinite stamina pool once levelled a few times, can climb any vertical surface in the wild and almost all built structures, can pounce from vertical surfaces to disable/damage mid to small-sized creatures, and can jump vertically, nearly 4 walls high making escapes easy; the list goes on.
70+ pelt per rhino. 70+ chitin per scorpion.
Just .. be careful. Be wary when you walk/fly into the redwoods.
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.
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!
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)
