Explorers! Welcome to the Strike Guides, where we cover JWAs most difficult Strike Events! This time, we've got the weekly Themed Epic Strike on our hands, featuring the mighty Brontolasmus! This Mid-Apex rhino has brought along the other rhinos we have in the game, and we're gonna have a tricky time dealing with them, as they can do a hefty amount of damage, while also taking quite a lot of damage themselves! Let's dive in the Guide part of this article by analyzing our opponents!
Looking at its stats and moves you'll immediately see that Brontotherium can only attack every second turn. That second turn however is a Definite Rampage, meaning that it'll hit its target no matter what. Its basic attack Defensive Stance doesn't do damage, but it does help it survive powerful hits with the Shield. That Shield on top of the high Health and Armor this thing has make it quite bulky. It also has a second set of Shields it can deploy, using its Swap-in Ability. This also means that if you predict the Swap in, you'll get a free hit on it with a Defense Shattering attack! Your best bet will be to go with Defense Shattering dinosaurs like Allosaurus G2 and Tyrannosaurus Rex. You can also go with DoT dinosaurs, as Defensive Stance has Priority. This means that the Cleanse will go before you inflict the DoT on it! Spinosaurus and its G2 version will do fine in that role. Our Battle Simulator has also worked out the best dinosaurs to take on Brontolasmus! Have a look!
Elasmotherium is less defensive due than Brontotherium due to having another damaging move it can use in Rending Attack. This move inflicts 40% of your total Health worth of damage on you if it lands successfully, and combine that with the Definite Rampage it has it can twoshot a lot of dinosaurs at lower levels! Your best bet to take this Rhino on is by using Defense Shatterers or Rending dinosaurs yourself. Marsupial Lion is a great one, although I'd recommend using that one against Brontolasmus due to the Immunity to Deceleration (we'll get to Brontolasmus soon!). DoT creatures are also great against Elasmotherium, but we'll also let our Battle Simulator show some amazing counters to Elasmotherium!
This powerful Rhino is a force to be reckoned with. It can alternate between Decelerating Rampage and Definite Rampage to deal massive amounts of damage while also gaining speed control. This makes Brontolasmus a threat to face to anything without either massive Health stats or something that is Immune to Deceleration. On top of that it has easy Shielding and a Rending Attack if it decides it needs to do that. Do not take this creature lightly! Use DoT on it if you need to, because the Health on this creature is extremely high.This is also a good time to remind you that our Battle Simulator calculates with equal levels, so keep this in mind while selecting counters!
If you manage to beat this Strike Event you'll be rewarded with the Brontolasmus Epic Incubator! In it you'll find the regular Epic Incubator rewards (coins and DNA) and on top of that 200 guaranteed Brontolasmus DNA! This will be enough to unlock it if you don't have it already!
This Strike Event is certainly a tricky one due to the bulk these creatures have and the damage they can dish out. However good planning will help you out, and we hope that this article has helped you out with that! If you manage to beat it, let us know in our Discord server how you did it! We hope to see you on there!
