Introducing Tropeognathus!

Dossier_Tropeognathus.jpg

Common Name: Tropeo
Species: Tropeognathus mesembrinus
Time: Cretaceous
Diet: Piscivore
Temperament: Neutral


Wild
Up close, Tropeognathus mesembrinus is easily recognized by the keeled crests on its snout, but with wingspans of up to twenty-seven feet, you’re sure to spot it before then. 

These large wings are not only ideal for catching air currents over its ocean hunting grounds, but they also let Tropeognathus draft off of other flying creatures by flying behind them. While not the fastest flyer on the Isles, when combined with its remarkable stamina, this makes Tropeognathus well suited for long distance flight.

Because it’s on the wing so much, Tropeognathus is best snared by those riding another flier. I've noticed the more clever tribespeople using chain bolas to capture them while airborne.

Domesticated
Once tamed, Tropeognathus has proven quite useful to the people of the Isles beyond mere transportation. For example, its toothed beak can grind down many common goods to their base components, which is a great way to recycle items and gear! Well, so long as you have a rag handy to wipe off the spit...

That bite is punishing enough to crack armor and grind through it over time, and Tropeognathus can blow away flora and fauna alike with a gust from its wings. Air-to-air combat is where this creature really shines, though. And with the right tools, some survivors have managed to fit them with a saddle-mounted flak cannon and jet engine for maximum lethality. 

Trust me, you haven't lived until you've ridden a jet-powered pterosaur into a dogfight. Saddle one up and see for yourself - you can be my wingman anytime!

Calling it now. This will be way too good for PvP combat and PvE players will suffer for it. It'll be nerfed into the ground, becoming another quite useless creature in the large catalog of creatures

When do we get it, when crystal isles comes out or now?

With Crystal Isles as it is exclusive with that map on PC Steam.

It comes to console at the same time, but spawning on other maps until Crystal Isles is released on console.

If you don't mind, do you know where this was explicitly stated? I know it's been heavily hinted, but I remember the original post where it was teased and nowhere could I find that it said this dino was the Crystal Isles exclusive one, only that Crystal Isles would have an exclusive dino. As far as I've heard, Crystal Isles already have a few unique dinos so theoretically, it could be one of them that end up being the exclusive one.

Haven't heard that about console, did it say that in the teaser announcement? I've read it a few times, but play on PC so might've not paid enough attention to console specific things.

Just to provide some clarity surrounding the new creature. It'll be found on Crystal Isles on PC, and on Console it will be available on the other maps (list TBD). Once we've released Crystal Isles on Consoles, we'll be adjusting its spawn so it's found there instead. Whilst the map needs some additional time to get it ready on console, the creature will be ready and we didn't want to hold it back. Plus with the launch of CI, we'll still get some new Wyvern variants which'll be fresh at the time.
