DON’T FLY THROUGH THE REDWOODS is not a a joke. I was a fool and thought: ‘hey, if I look around for them I can fly through the forest on my argentavis without getting ambushed by a thyla, right?’. Wrong. You can’t see the kinkajou bears coming, my friend. You’re feeling like master of the forest until a furry torpedo yeets you off your mount at Mach Jesus. I speak from experience. I’ve been made into a piece of bacon by these guys on more than one occasion. Just use a rex.
The redwoods are now basically a no fly zone, I lost a quetz, and a pter to these b******s. They jump out of the tree, rip you off your mount, and then pin you and your mastercraft armor to the ground and murder you.
They will jump on you and murder you even if you're on a fricking wyvern. You are not safe from them no matter what animal you have. Just accept your slow and tender death. I learned it the hard way lmao. Scared the fckng hell out of me
Wanna find one? Simply mind your own business flying through the redwoods and they'll find you! Just make sure you can take some fall damage and that your tame is set to passive so it doesnt kill the thyla. (I know this seems like a joke but this is legit the only way I know how to find them.)
A couple friends and I were starting up on a pve server recently and a majestically bearded man fell from the heavens and delivered a lvl 350 to us for no reason. Needless to say I am now the apex predator of the valley. This jungle cat at a high level will kill damn near any alpha no problem. It also will climb shear mountain cliffs no problem. Definitely look to tame a high level now that it does bleed damage.
The best PvP strategy is to tame one of these then ask your enemy to go to redwood forest. Then follow your enemy when he is at the forest. Then he will sit there in confusion like what?. Then jump down form the tree and OHHHHH RKO OUTTA NOWHERE.pounce on him and he’s dead. Rinse and repeat with other PvP enemies.
