Ark Diplodocus Guide (How to Tame, Drops, Food, Location…)

Ark Diplodocus

Diplodocus Insulaprincep is a naive herbivore that first appeared in the Late Jurassic epoch.

These creatures have features that can make them easily be mistaken for the Brontosaurus, having a long tail and even longer neck with an unusually small head relative to its body size.

The Diplodocus, a very friendly creature in the wild that will even try and cuddle creatures that try to attack it or play around with survivors that get close to it.

When the diplodocus spots a human it will start to walk towards the human lightly nudging them in the attempt to make friends with the human.

Once tamed, the Diplodocus is used as a mass transport creature, taking groups of a maximum of 10 humans and their equipment to different locations on the map at a fast pace.

Being one of the largest sauropods, the Diplodocus even though being very large is not slow by any means and is able to flee even from certain predators on land.

A friendly creature is surely a welcome sight on the ark, it is amazing how the diplodocus survives with such a friendly temperament in this cruel land.

Due to its speed, Diplodocus cannot be fitted with a platform saddle unlike other sauropods, instead it is equipped with a 10 seater saddle with 1 seat just behind its neck for the driver.

Overview

Diplodocus are naive and careless creatures in the wild and would  often nudge creatures off cliffs or into other dangerous situations while trying to get close to their new potential friend.

The Diplodocus is able to withstand getting attacked by smaller creatures and can easily get away from them due to its large size and fast speed.

Once the Diplodocus is tamed, they are mainly used for transporting groups of humans across land as well as items or resources as they have a larger weight capacity than most creatures.

Haven been playing pc games for as long as I can remember. I am no pro frontline man but when it comes to Support Logistics and base Management that’s where I excel in the games that I play. I usually play RTS, Simulation, Management, MOBA’S, RPG’s and the usual FPS and Survival.
