Introduction and Infographic
Explorers! Welcome to the Strike Guides, where we cover JWAs most difficult Strike Events! One of the best Featured Dinosaurs week continues with another Epic Strike Event! This time, three European Dinosaurs challenge us! How do we beat them? Let’s find out! First off, let’s get to know our opponents with this awesome infographic thanks to our artist Orange Rex!
Unlike the Alanqa Strike earlier this week, this Strike Event has a lot of variety. Shields, Distraction, Rending, Counterattacks; all of them are in here! If you want to know more about these effects, check out our Battle Basics articles!
One of the three Rhinos currently in the game, Elasmotherium offers good bulk and good damage. Its good Health, 30% Armor and 1038 Attack gives it good tanking potential while also dishing out good damage. However, it has a weakness. With Strike Events, we know that the AI prioritizes damage over defense. Therefore, it most likely won’t use the Defensive Stance basic it has. Therefore, you could bleed it out with DoT attacks like Gashing and Lethal Wound. Rending attacks are also a good way of disposing of Elasmotherium. However, don’t let this Rare get you, it’s a formidable opponent to face if not prepared for! Using our Battle Simulator, we present you some great counters to Elasmotherium!
This Spanish dinosaur has a brutal Defense Shattering Counterattack it’ll use after every hit it received! So on top of the regular hit it dishes out, it’ll also do another Defense Shattering Strike as counterattack damage! This can make it tricky to deal with Concavenator, especially after it has put up its Shield. However, due to the lack of Immunities and Cleansing abilities, Concavenator is very weak to Distraction. One Distraction effect applied to it can reduce its damage output by 50%, effectively nullifying the Counterattack! Use Distraction whenever possible! Our Battle Simulator will show you some great counters to Concavenator if you are not sure on what to use!
Thank goodness this thing isn’t actually on fire. This 129 Speed dinosaur has two Distracting moves in Distracting Impact and Pounce, so it can (and will) reduce your second hit on it to 0 damage if you’re slower! Bringing some form of Cleansing/Superiority Strike is mandatory against this one if you ask me. Preferably something with Armor, as the damage comes off from a high Attack stat. Thankfully, it’s Health stat isn’t as large, so it is prone to being twoshot by most higher level creatures. In short: Bring something with Superiority Strike, preferably with some Armor, and you’ll be fine. Our Battle simulator will show you some good counters to Pyroraptor too.
If you defeat this Strike Event you’ll be rewarded with a Europe Themed Incubator! In it you will find loads of coins and DNA from the following DNA pool:
Common: Dimorphodon, Hatzegopteryx, Iguanodon, Miragaia
Rare: Elasmotherium, Megalosaurus, Proceratosaurus
Epic: Baryonyx, Concavenator, Pyroraptor
And that brings an end to one of the best Featured Weeks we’ve had in a while! The pool of dinosaurs was amazing, and this Epic Strike’s pool is also great for some awesome hybrids! How was your week this week? Let us know in our Discord server! We hope to see you on there!
