Has anyone beat the bosses with Allos ?


Recommended Posts

got a question, when you adjust wild dino health in the .ini does that raise the boss's health as well?

reason that i ask is that i'm doing a story playthrough and so far i've used allos to beat the bosses

my server is 240 max level and i've stacked 20 health mutations and 20 melee mutations into my allos along with crafting skilled saddle BPs

I have wild dino health at 4.5x official, so alphas and everything else are pretty tanky, just don't know if it applies to boss health

Update: 

I have 5 tames and 10 babies, so I'll bringing a total of 15 to the fight. Some of the babies hatched with pretty legit stats but some are a bit lackluster. Hopefully leveling them can get the weaker ones up to snuff.

I'm shooting to have a minimum of 12k hp and 400 melee but some might not quite get there.

Working on raising now so theoretically they should be done sat night and then I'll let them marinate overnight in cryos to get them leveled a bit. Planning on Sunday morning before football for the big showdown.

I know breeding is a chore, but...

 

Breed you wilds until all the best stats from each wild are on one animal, then breed that one back to it's previous generation until you have a breeding pair with exactly the same stats.  Breed those until you have a stud and 4-5 females, all with the same level/stats.  Don't imprint or level and of them.  Save every one that gets taken out of the breeding pool.

 

If you've started off with perfect tame 145/217s and 150/224s your top stat "perfect" breeders will be high 220s to high 230s with all their stats combined, say it's a 234 for example.  If you're breeding pool is five identical 234s, every 236 that comes out has a mutation.  If it's health or melee and it's a male, move him into the stud spot.

 

You could probably hatch out 18 of those 234s and imprint them, then easily level up to 265 or so and be good.  That's why you want several breeding females, lots of eggs.  If you miss an imprint, screw it, unclaim it and kill it with another one that you got 100% imprinting on and get the XP.  Lvl200+ Allo babies are prime food for everything I'm going to level up a bunch because they give a ton of XP and they breed way faster than rexes.

 

Whistle everyone to passive before you unclaim it and kill it though.

Then u should be able to go to val to get some deinos since it is not part of the story, the story order only consists of island, scorched earth, aber, ext and genesis.

Yes but all the mod-turned-official maps have DLC content in them except The Center.. and also yeah, theyre not apart of the story

Thanks for the advice but I'm not going through all that stat hunting and breeding to perfection especially when the random 135-150 allos I bred were more than enough to get the job done.

As long as they worked, that's all that matters!  

 

I've got a crazy Allo pack going but I've decided that I hate them after I took 4 out for a hunting trip and had to babysit them constantly.  Allos are a little derpy out in the wild but a big pack can do a lot of DPS on bosses even without the bleed.  

I still think bossfight dino debates ended with Theris though, and they are crazy useful as utility mounts while building to boss fights.

Again it comes down to ease of breeding for me, which was the genesis for this whole thread. Allos are stupidly easy to tame as well.

All the top tier boss animals take 3+ days while Allos arent even half that.

Pretty much every Dino is viable for Bossfights, I'd say. People are just lazy and use Rexes overall.

I did Gamma and Beta Broodmother with a pack of Hyaenodon, so, yea.

I agree about lazy rexing, but Disagree in regards to viablility vs bosses.   Gamma bosses are a joke, Beta aint much better.   If its not viable vs alpha bosses its not viable.  

That being said there are several different species that are or could be viable but theres also a great many that would only be viable after a ridiculous amount of breeding and mutating.  and possibly even then still not be a legitimate boss fighter
