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)
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!
They're useful for escaping places and getting food but when you get a Megalania then these guys just get left behind
Also to all the mobile users, STOP ASKING, THEY'RE NOT ADDING THEM BECAUSE OF HOW COMPLEX THE CONTROLS FOR THE THYLA ARE
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).
Cool pvp battle stance:
Setting: redwoods, large portion of enemy tribe coming through in a few seconds
Creature 1: deinonychus (ridden by human, clinging high up to redwood tree, preferably at least 10
Creature 2: thylacoleo (ridden by human, clinging high up to tree, ready for pounce, preferable at least 3)
Creature 3: griffin (ridden by human, flying high in the sky, human on back with RPG, at least two)
Procedure: when the enemy comes close, use the thylacoleos to pounce smaller creatures or humans, and use the deinonychuses to kill the larger ones. The griffins go into dive and, when close to ground, passenger fires rocket. Griffin does slam, then rises back into sky and repeats. You have the enemy down in a matter of minutes with few casualties, and you have struck a major blow against an enemy tribe.
Up if you want more!
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.
Now, this was a given tame to me, so I know literally nothing about wild ones. I've never encountered one. Also take this with a grain of salt as the given one was a raised thylacoleo, so I could over exaggerate normal thylacoleo.
If you need some hide or meat, this guy is great. One of the best hunters in my opinion, as it's very fast, and it can climb up walls. Not even kidding.
It's jumps are huge (nothing compared to deinonychus a.k.a Raptor chicken)
Abilities that I know: Climbing (hold jump maybe? It's A for Xbox.) Growl (not sure if it does anything, press down right joystick for Xbox.)
And the normal attack. That's all I know for abilities.
Hope all of this is helpful, and remember to take it with a grain of salt, I'm decently newish (few weeks - a month new) and also this tame was a raised thylacoleo (100% Imprinted) that was as GIVEN to me, so I know nothing about wild ones or how hard it is to tame.
These Things are Awesome!! Be sure to Level their Damage , Stamina , Health. I got one with 1440 Stamina and it can run almost forever , it regenerates stamina Pretty fast , great fighter and when Heavily injured can escape easily
These guys have tons of stamina and are the best dino for exploring and they are pretty good fighters as well just be careful on island as they will jump on your mount and kill em as well as you also they have a high torpidity drain so keep that in mind while taming
One of the best mounts in the game. Can Run, Jump, Climb, and with a little lag it can even fly. In all seriousness, this is my favorite mount and always one of my first tamed. It’s an amazing combat mount that can easily run from anything it can’t kill.
