Introduction and Infographic
Explorers! Welcome to the Strike Guides, where we cover JWAs most difficult Strike Events! This time, we will be talking about the Epic Purutaurus Strike! This Fierce Hybrid is accompanied by its Hybrid Components, and they challenge you to try and defeat them! Let’s see if we can help you with this! First off, let’s get to know our opponents using an infographic made by our artist Orange Rex!
These three creatures can all pack a serious punch. So first, our usual disclaimer:
These strikes with 3 level 30's are extremely challenging for low level players. If your highest rarity creature is an epic, you are going to really struggle to beat this strike, particularly because any set of three level 30's is going to mean you need to survive a long time to win and teams of lower level creatures generally can't kick out the damage necessary to do so.
All three creatures can damage you with a high damage kit. Two with a Counter that does 33% of your total Health, and one with a Ferocious Impact and another Impact to follow up! Let’s get into all of the creatures and how to counter them!
The Meat-Eating Bull is one of the dinosaurs that got improved in the 1.7 Update. The Greater Rending Counterattack is a dangerous tool, as 33% of your Health is quite a lot. If Carno survives three turns, you won’t. You can reduce the damage Carno will do, but it has access to Cleansing Impact, which cleanses all negative effects and deals a good amount of damage! It also has a Shield to reduce the damage taken, so that it can counterattack more times. This with its 4740 Health pool makes it a dangerous opponent to face!
From other Strike Events we know the move order that it’ll do: Short Defense-Cleansing Impact-Vulnerability Strike. The fact that it doesn’t use Cleansing Impact first can be a bit troublesome, because that way you can’t bleed it the second turn. However, Carnotaurus’ Attack Stat is quite low, so you could take a powerful chomper like Tyrannosaurus Rex to face this creature. Having dealt a good number of hits on it before your chomper dies to Carnotaurus might help you set up another dinosaur to face against the other two dinosaurs!
This crocodile can dish out some major damage in two turns. Ferocious Impact and Lockdown Impact give it two very powerful Impacts. The Ferocious Impact alone will do over 3k damage! What’s worse, is that it’ll most likely use this move first and then Lockdown Impact, giving it a total of nearly 6300 damage in two turns! You’ll need to use either Shields or Invincibility to really survive this assault. The fact that Purussaurus isn’t the slowest either really isn’t useful. Its 112 Speed makes it outspeed all high damage chompers, while it’s high Health and 10% Armor make it quite bulky. Bleeding might be a good tactic to deal with this one, as it doesn’t have access to cleansing.
Purussaurus is the most threatening of the bunch damage-wise. But it can be easily beaten by a Spinotasuchus with over 3119 HP. Lethal Wound+Swoop should make Purussaurus drop in two turns. The perfect way to do this is to make your Spinotasuchus Swoop into an Alanqa/Alankylosaurus because of the Swap-In Invincibility. This way you will get out of the second Impact unscathed and Purussaurus should die. If not, you can finish off the weakened crocodile with your pterosaur, as they are both faster and can deal enough damage. If you haven’t gotten access to a Spinotasuchus yet, you might want to use a DoT strategy here and just let your bleeder die. Suchotator should be able to do this while also taking the Ferocious Impact due to Instant Distraction.
The star of the show, this Epic Hybrid has the high damage output of the Purussaurus and the Rending Counter of the Carnotaurus. It’s Precise Rampage allow it do deal an easy 2674 damage that you cannot dodge, while its Long Protection reduces the damage it takes. Couple that with its good Health stat and it can be a problem. It also has easy access to cleansing in its basic Cleansing Strike. This one can surely be a problem if you don’t work around the counterattack in some way!
Purutaurus is an interesting opponent to face, because we don’t know what the move order is going to be. If he goes Precise Rampage-Long Protection-Precise Rampage you might be able to take your own Purutaurus to fight this one. Instant Distract the Rampages and use a damaging move when he puts up a Long Protection. That way you should win this matchup. If he goes Long Protection-Precise Rampage-Cleansing Strike, you might want to consider a bleeding option with either Suchotator or Dimodactylus. But you need to beware of the Cleansing Strike he’ll use on T3. Otherwise, maybe just chomping him to death is a solid thing to do. Tyrannosaurus Rex and company can deal good amounts of damage this way.
If you beat this Strike Event you’ll be rewarded with a Purutaurus Themed Epic Incubator. In it you’ll find loads of coins, 200 guaranteed Purutaurus DNA and the regular Epic Incubator DNA.
This might be one of the most difficult Themed Strikes we’ve had so far, just because the damage output is so incredibly high. However, if you beat this you will get an Epic Incubator with some free Purutaurus DNA, so you could unlock this monster if you are able to beat it! Were you successful? Let us know!
