  • Community Crunch 239: TLC 3 Update, EVO Event, and More!

    In this edition of the Community Crunch, we’ll be giving you more details on the upcoming TLC 3 patch and taking a look at some amazing community art.

    TLC 3 Update

    Excitement is ramping up and we're anxious to share more details on the creature improvements we've been working on.  In addition to the creature upgrades we'll been sharing, there's more polish, balance, and quality of life updates in store for the upcoming TLC patch.

    Woolly Mammoth

    Recently we gave you a peek at the visual upgrades of the Woolly Mammoth but it’s abilities have also seen an upgrade. The Mammoth comes marching in with new attacks and a buff that’s enabled by war drums.  We have a feeling you will like the sound of that!

    New Abilities
    War Drum Saddle and Buff

    • 1 additional passenger seat on a saddle that comes equipped with a war drum that must be played to maintain an AoE buff that improves stamina regen and makes them immune to fear.

    New Attacks
    Tusk Sweep

    • Sweeps tusks left or right to gather and harvest thatch

    Trunk Trumpet

    • Emits a trunk roar that does an AOE debuff to all enemies within range

    Foot Stomp

    • Mammoth rears up and then puts all of its weight into a forward “slam” with its front legs to directionally knock back enemies and gather wood

    Trunk Grab

    • Similar to the Karkinos’s grab, it is able to grab, hold, and release smaller targets

     


    Stegosaurus

    StegoTLC_Promo.png

    Primarily known as a harvester, the Stegosaurus will be seeing visual upgrades and an expanded toolset that makes it hard to resist. 

    New Abilities

    Backplate Modes

    • Backplate passive buff and can switch between three modes. Different modes will be indicated visually
      • Hardened Plated: Applies a damage reduction buff and prevents riders from being dismounted by enemies; Wood harvesting benefit
      • Heavy Plate Mode: Applies a slow when attacking with the basic tail whip; Thatch harvesting benefit
      • Sharpened Plate Mode: Applies an armor penetration effect when attacking with the tail whip. Also useful for harvesting berries

    New Attacks

    • Impaling Tail Whip
      • Able to impale and immobilize players and smaller creatures

    Also I have a question. 10 mammoths + 10 snow owls  = OP? Ride the passenger seat on mammoths, (u need 15 peoples tho) play drums, mammoths and snow owls keep stam so everyone continues to heal? And just rotate the mammoths in groups of like 3 to be healed?

    I don't understand why we can't pick up wild dinos on pve, when the wild dinos are one of the largest parts of the "e" in pve.

    TLC 3 sounds awesome so far btw

    thx to the prolonged harvesting animation harvesting wood now takes ages.

    the good thing about it: you don't have to move the mammoth as wood respawns faster than you can harvest.

    Maybe you re right.
    It would depend on how dismounting prevent will work with tentacle electroshocking. Enemy dismount prevention maybe just work against purlovia, raptor or thyla.
    If it will prevent from tentacles electro drop, it will be OP for Rockwell.. but notice - Master Controller too. 

    AAND i hope it will affect TEK STEGO too

    I was thinking more of protection from the bubbles in Rockwell.... If you're getting hit with electroshock then you should revisit your strategy. However there isn't a way that I am aware, beside hiding under the bridges, to avoid the electric shock for MC. Good call out.

    The bubbles hit dino + player + lightpet. Maybe damage reduction will add some protection, but i would be count on it.

    I have hosted about 20 successful Alpha Rockwell bossruns so far and we (SandsInPants tribe) do AR fight once wa week. I was never electroshocked. I was thinking that dismount dino protection will give you a new possibility to fight with stego - dont care of electro.

    Its not just hiding under bridge. If stego will prevent you from dismount, no eye laser will drop you off, no reaper will drop you off, and you will be able to use pumpgun without dismount.

    Halloween will be coming up soon. Maybe later on, could the Araneo or Onyc get a tlc? For the spider I think it would be cool to make it a bit more like the bog spider or at least make it a tad bit bigger and climb walls. It's kind out f a tame that is commonly swept under the rug. Also I think it's a bit glitched on the crystal isles because the wild ones soawn up to lvl 300

    It will, Tek Raptors, Trikes, Parasaurs, and Rexes all got their counterparts TLC stuff.

    So far, my only gripe with this TLC pass is that the Stego just became Kentro 2.0. Like, you nerfed the Kentro's damage reflection and wild ones don't seem to use their tail attack against other wild creatures, and know it seems like Stegos have the same thing just without bleed(Atleast I think Kentros cause bleed to picked up targets). 

    Just think something different could have been done for the Stego, like a daytime buff or herding bonus when around other species of herbivores(Stegosaurus and Camptosaurus would herd together to help protect each other from Allosaurus).

    It's to prevent griefing, especially with corrupted creatures and the like.

    Overseer too, if it does prevent boss dismounting. I'm curious how much the abilities will affect health and damage. Since they can eat veggie cakes, I feel like they could become the new boss meta. What does everyone think?

    Im so disappointed in wildcard again. I swear wildcard doesnt listen to us. Mammoth already good, stego ok i guess but pteradon, quetzel, iguanadon, megalania, morellatops and saber need it most. These are dinos nobody cares about anymore. I got 5 yrs of daily playing in game, i know every little thing about game and dinos i named need it more than the rest.

    There's only 2 dinos this time. Sorry bud.

    you know they didn't say all info right just more info so that means there's at least one more creature in store for us in tlc 3 and the past 2 tlcs they gave us at least 3 creatures in them so hopefully it's the quetzal, mosa, bronto, or the allosaurus in my opinion.

    They have previously said there will only be 2 creatures in TLC 3.

    The Mammoth has needed this for a while, and the Stego does deserve a TLC seeing as how the Rex, Raptor, Spino, and Trike all got one and it's around the same age as them. 

    The only creatures on your list that need a TLC are the Pteranodon and Quetz. The Iguanadon is fine for what it is, Megalania just needs better stats, and the Saber already had a TLC.

    I would like the wyverns to have a mount but that it is not mandatory to be able to mount something like the equus and the mount is complicated to manufacture and change the firing mode for example that the poison wyvern instead of throwing a ball throws a jet of acid.

    I find it funny especially because of the possibilities it gives in pvp :)

    Stamina regen sounds meh, Mov speed would've been better even 10% more or something or attack speed increase, or another option add extra dmg on every 3rd hit many choices ... But yeah there it is stamina regen to buff dinos you wont be riding ...
