Explorers! Welcome to the Strike Guides, where we cover JWAs most difficult Strike Events! Today we're facing the North America Epic Strike, featuring some high level American dinosaurs! These dinosaurs all hit incredibly fast and hard, so if you're low level, you're going to struggle with this Strike Event! However, we're going to try and help you out by analyzing our opponents and working on the best counters to them! Let's get started!
Utahraptor is the first on todays coverage, and it's also the easiest to deal with. Its low Health stat makes it very vulnerable to getting twoshot or even oneshot by higher levelled creatures. However, don't be fooled by the low Health. The damage this thing can dish out is enormous, with two big multipliers. Pounce and Critical Impact are all high damage moves, and Pounce also Distracts your dinosaur for a turn! I cannot stress the importance of dealing with this dinosaur quickly! Use High Health, Armored Superiority Strike users like Carbonemys or Stegodeus to deal with this one, or Brachiosaurus and Giraffatitan. We will also show you some simulator counters, but keep in mind that these percentages are for equal levels and everything! If you have something else that will do well that doesn't show up here, for example a boosted dinosaur that can deal lots of damage and is faster, be sure to use it!
The ‘thorny devil from the river Styx’ (wow, that’s quite a name for a dinosaur!) is the second on the list, and probably the trickiest to deal with. It has a lot of versatility with Shields, Stunning and Running all in one kit, along with good Attack and great Speed. The key to beating this one is bringing something that can damage it quickly and hard, or bring Immune Defense Shatterers like Indoraptor. Another method of dealing with Stygimoloch is withstanding the damage it does and whittling it down. Our monthly featured creature Carbonemys does amazing at this with its good Health and amazing 60% Armor stat! However, this method doesn't make it stop from running away into Tyrannosaurus, which destroys Carbonemys or any other Armored creature you have. Surefire way to victory is to bring something faster that can hit extremely hard on T1, like Erlidomimus! If all that fails, try to Distract the damage it dishes out!
Last but certainly not least, it's the Queen of Dinosaurs, Rexy! This powerful creature comes packing with everything a tankbuster needs: Defense Shattering, high Health, and the highest Damage in the game! I cannot stress the importance of using either or both Evasive and Distraction against this creature! If possible, use both against it to really reduce the damage it dishes out, or you'll suffer tremendously against this monster. Erlikosaurus G2, Monomimus, Indoraptor G2 and Erlikospyx are amazing against Rexy due to their high Distraction values and/or Evasive abilities! If you're in a pinch, use a Cloak dinosaur and hit it with a massive 4x damage move! Even with all the Health it has, chances are that you'll take it out with one hit if you've levelled/boosted your creature enough! Take this one on with caution Explorers!
If you beat this Strike Event you’ll be rewarded with a North America Themed Incubator! In it you’ll find loads of coins and DNA from this great dinosaur pool:
- Common – Allosaurus, Brontotherium, Parasaurolophus, Tanycolagreus

This is certainly a difficult Strike Event, but the rewards make up for it! The rewards are amazing, and it's certainly worth a shot! Did you manage to beat it? Let us know in our Discord server! We hope to see you on there!
