WHAT EVER YOU DO......DONT ATTACK A PACK OF 3 OR MORE. 4 of these things almost killed my lvl 40 sarco. In the day they are neutral but do not go to close to them or you’ll be rip to pieces but in the night dont even to a mile close to them. If you see this thing running towards you.....RUN LIKE HELL. YOU KEEP RUNNING TILL YOU GET TO WATER/
Earlier I went into the jungle to get a supply crate. I saw a Troodon that I thought was alone. I pulled out my sword to kill it. An entire pack came after me. I killed them all but fell unconscious. I got back up and started running away after realizing I risked my life for a water jar blueprint. Another pack of Troodons attacked me. I luckily defeated them, but fell unconscious again. I woke up again with 10 health. I was also overheating, but there was a stream of water just outside of the jungle. After waking up, I limped into the stream where I cooled down, healed up, then left to go back to Herbivore Island. I hate Troodons. I also really dislike blue supply crates now because it gave me a water jar blueprint after nearly dying to two packs of Troodons.
Best way as a beginner or higher up player to survive these guys is to tame a sinamocrops (using chitin), Sina’s sit on ur shoulder and screech at anything small, including troodons, seagulls, dilos, and more. I think Sinas are only on lost island, but they are definitely worth it!
