What is Gigantophis? Gigantophis is an extinct species of constrictor, living around 40 million years ago, it was the largest snake discovered until Titanoboa was found. Gigantophis was roughly around 35 feet long putting it near Whale Shark sized! Gigantophis were believed to of fed on the early relatives of elephants called Moeritherium. More Information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigantophis Gigantophis Dossier Wild: Gigantophis Comprimens unlike Titanoboa exornantur prefers to spend its days basking in the sunlight waiting for its next meal. This immensely large snake prefers to constrict its prey crushing every single bone in its body, once it has its coils wrapped around you, there is no way of escape, just death. This creature is regularly seen preying upon the likes of Paraceratherium, Stegosaurus and even Triceratops but it won't pass up the opportunity to grab a nearby survivor. Tamed: Whilst tamed Gigantophis is a viable asset, I have seen survivors using it as sort of upgraded chain bola which holds creatures in place but due to Gigantophis constrictor nature, it slowly crushes the creature. Personally I have been using mine as a sort of make-do tent protecting me from the elements, it is a terrifying thought but the babies are so cute with their little goofy smiles, you will get immediately attached to them. (Working on Dossier) Behaviour Due to Gigantophis being a predator, it is highly aggressive, and relentless. It will attack any survivor or tame which is within reach of its thick coils. They are mainly found in marshlands and open plains (when nesting). A nesting mother will not attack unless you are very close to it. Appearance Gigantophis looks like a modern day Anaconda but super sized, they tend to be solitary and ambush their prey with thick coils which disable prey, if the prey is larger than it, they bite it with their rows of needle teeth preventing the prey from moving. Taming Gigantophis is a passive tame and requires special precaution. It is advised to bring tames with high hp which you don't mind losing for example Moschops'. You must first find a mother Gigantophis coiled around its nest, the level of the mother represents the level of eggs inside the nest. Whistle your Moschops towards the mother, the mother will agro to the Moschops and start to coil then kill it, you must keep sending Moschops until the mother's taming effectiveness is at 100%. Once it is at 100%, the mother will spawn an egg and you must send one more Moschops to distract the mother from the egg. Gigantophis mother go up to level 225. Combat It is advised to use high ground against Gigantophis with a decent shotgun or use a large tame which deals a lot of damage, so you do not get constricted by Gigantophis. Attacks Primary: Is a bite attack which deals bleed damage similar to the Deinonychus. Secondary: Coil attack which coils around creatures and hold it in place, you must press the button again to start constricting, inhibiting their movement whilst giving a bone break effect after a while and slowly increases in damage as time passes. Tertiary: Latch attack, only for large creatures, you bite and latch onto the creature then press the coil button to start constricting the creature. You can also just use it to slow down your target. Abilities - PvP Soaker counter: Gigantophis can hold soaker in place preventing their movement so you can kill them more easily. Whilst constricting, if Gigantophis is damaged, it will let go and leave the tame with a bone break effect. Movement restrict: Gigantophis can latch on to large creatures like gigas and slow/prevent their movement allowing you to kill them easier. Unaffected by picking: Due to Gigantophis being so low to the ground and the position of the rider, you are immune to creatures like Desmodus picking you off your mount. Tank: Due to Gigantophis' girth, it has a large hp value and can take quite a lot of hits, this is especially useful against hard hitting tames. Abilities - PvE Make-do Shelter: Ever had that horrible feeling of not being able to get back to your base in time when servers are about to update, well Gigantophis acts as a shelter and bed, all you have to do is access its option wheel and choose the shelter option, whilst in this mode Gigantophis gains the apex buff meaning you will be mostly safe. Egg Collector: Gigantophis is a necessity for breeders who aren't at base, Gigantophis will collect your fertilized eggs while you're away and keep them safe until you need them. Boss Fighter: Due to Gigantophis hp stat and its decent damage, it is a viable candidate for any boss fight. Underwater Mount: When Gigantophis is in the water it gains a significant speed buff and it does not lose oxygen. Meatrunner: Gigantophis is a reliable meat runner being able to carry a lot of meat without getting encumbered! Tame Helper: Using Gigantophis coil attack, you can reliably hold most creatures down so you can tranq them out. Snake Bridge: Acts as a bridge between 2 rock faces, for easier traversal with other creatures.
What is Keresdrakon? Keresdrakon is a species of Azhdarchid, it was around the size of a Quetzal, would've been most likely an opportunistic carnivore. It lived during the Cretaceous period with what is now known as Brazil. Why should vote you for Keresdrakon in Ragnarok? Keresdrakon would be a great addition to Ragnarok, Male Keresdrakon will be the fighters of the species providing a unique flyer experience, whilst the females of the species care for babies whilst also producing a less optimal Wyvern milk for Wyvern babies. More will be explained on the male and female Keresdrakon further into the post. Whilst also being a handy safe logging shelter. Keresdrakon Dossier Wild: The looming hunter, Keresdrakon, as large as the Islands native species Quetzalcoatlus. Unlike the Quetzal, Keresdrakon prizes itself in its adept aerial prowess, while you may be fooled to think its a slow hunter, I’ve seen this creature fight Wyverns and overtake them in aerial combat. Tamed: Keresdrakon is a valuable tame for any tribe on the Ragnarok, Keresdrakon will provide shelter for you and your tribe mates. Most tribes I’ve seen use Keresdrakon to fight Alpha Wyverns to get the milk from within it. Behaviour Whilst not at a nest you can see wild Keresdrakon looming high in the skies, unlike the Quetzal, they are aggressive and will attack if you get too close. When at a nest, you can find pairs of Keresdrakon which normally won't attack unless provoked. Taming To tame Keresdrakon, you must climb to the peaks of Ragnarok, there you will find pairs trying to finish their nests. At first you will notice its an ordinary nest with nothing special, but that's where you come in, you have to help make the nest, you will need Wyvern talons and Rex arms, as well as plenty of wood. You are first prompted with the female asking for wood, depending on the level of the female depends on the amount of wood. After you have given the female wood, you must give the male your trophies as he will recognise you as a capable hunter, much like itself. After those few things are done, the female will promptly lay an egg, and you can pick up the egg. Combat To fight a Keresdrakon, it is advised to chain bola them due to their lack of ground movement then use a high damaging tame or weapon and start hurting it. Attacks Primary: Beak attack, you can rapidly press it for DPS or hold it down to perform an alternate attack which skewers smaller dinos, instantly killing them, or causes large damage and bleed to anything over a certain carry weight. Secondary: Barrel Roll which causes large damage and knockback. Tertiary: While grounded, this attack will make Keresdrakon slap with its wing causing heavy knockback and a brief stun. While airborne this attack will just be a grab to move players or tames under a certain carry weight. Flak Saddle Keresdrakon has a unique flak saddle which has 2 mounted mini guns attached to it, as well as the inventory providing insight to what you need for the bosses of the map you are currently on, so you do not need to travel to obelisks just to check if you have everything. This saddle also is a 2 seater. Male and Female Mechanics Male: The male unlike the female is more damaging, with a unique rage mechanic where when you take lots of damage the Keresdrakon will enter a rage mode which does not dismount you but it increases the males damage output as well as its speed, turning it into a power house of a flyer. Female: The female is there to care for your babies, imprinting on them for you whilst you're out of base (this does not work if you are offline), she also likes to collect other species eggs as if they were here own, she organises them into a nice neat pile, if you give the female a Wyvern talon, she produces milk for that species of Wyvern, so fire talon means Fire Milk. Roles Boss Fighter: Due to Keresdrakon's power, using a few for the Manticore fight should make it easier. Taming Mount: Due to the 2 seater saddle, you can have a tribemate shoot from the back to knockout other creatures. Fertilised Egg Collector: Stated above, the female collects eggs. Milk Provider: Stated above, the female produces milk based on what Talon you give it. Travel Mount: Due to its stamina pool and speed, Keresdrakon makes for an excellent travel mount. Boss Tribute Farmer: Due to the males power, hunting down Wyverns and other apex's should be fairly easy. Wyvern Egg Stealer: Being able to out manoeuvre and kill Wyverns, Keresdrakon makes for the ultimate nest raider. Dogfighter: Due to the speed and strength behind Keresdrakon, you can easily fight off multiple Wyverns without much worry. Boss Saddle: The saddle provides a unique take which shows what you need for each boss fight without needing to head to a terminal to constantly check. Mobile Shelter: Keresdrakon will open its wings and close them around you, to secure your safe log. Whilst in this position, it gains the Apex buff, so smaller creatures will not attck you.
