Introduction and Infographic
Explorers! Welcome to the Strike Guides, where we take a look at Jurassic World Alives most difficult Strike Events! This time we’re taking a look at the Spinotahraptor Strike! In this week filled with Epic Strikes, this one is the only one that doesn’t abide to the Halloween theme! However, this Strike Event is still filled with some scary dinosaurs, and our usual disclaimer applies:
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.
With the disclaimer out of the way, let’s take a look at this beautiful infographic made by our artist Orange Rex!
As you can see, these three dinosaur pack quite a versatile moveset: Distraction, Damage over Time and Critical Attacks. If you want to know more about these move effects, check out our Battle Basics articles! But for now, let’s hop into the Strike Guide!
This big bleeder specializes in DoT damage. With two bleeding moves in its arsenal and great Health that allows it to fire them off, Spinosaurus is a big problem for tanks, or anything that doesn’t have Immunity! 122 Speed isn’t bad by any means either, however it does fall onto the slower end of the speed tiers, especially with boosts being around!
Spinosaurus lacks damage. 1033 Attack is quite low for a level 30, so its main damage output is from the DoT. So if you can negate that, Spinosaurus really can’t do much against you. So using anything with either Immunity or Cleansing will help you out. If you’re having trouble getting through its Health pool, you can always choose to give it a taste of their own medicine by using DoT against it. By using our Battle Simulator, we can show you the best counters to these creatures at equal levels. Let’s take a look at what our Battle Sim says how to counter Spinosaurus!
The ‘bandit of Utah’ is here, ready to dish out some big damage! It has a 2x and 1.875 multiplier at its disposal to dish out big damage! Its 128 Speed is also quite fast, even with the new boost system being here! Its Attack stat is also quite high, so those multipliers will hit hard.
However, look at the Health stat and you can be a little relieved. 3058 Health isn’t very high, and almost every good Superiority Strike user can dish out that much damage in a couple of turns. So try and use Superiority Strike users against this one. If you haven’t got good Superiority Strike users, try and use Slowing/Decelerating attacks against it from Sauropods or Ceratopsians. Sauropods have high Health, so they can take some attacks and hit it back quite hard. Ceratopsians can stun Utahraptor to death. And if all else fails, use our loved/hated Dracorex G2 or its hybrid Dracoceratops! I’ll also show you some counters using our Battle Sim!
As the star of this Strike Event, Spinotahraptor will probably be the one you’ll have the most issues with. It’s the most versatile of the bunch, with Distracting, DoT and Critical Attacks in its kit! Its 126 Speed isn’t the fastest, but it allows it to outspeed a lot of creatures in the game, unless they’re boosted though. It’s 1702 damage also allows it to hit quite hard, especially with the Distracting Rampage and Critical Impact. Tanks aren’t safe against it either due to its Gashing Wound attack. So it can deal with a lot of dinosaurs!
What it can’t deal with however, are Immune creatures. Immunity completely ignores the Distraction and DoT effects, which helped Spinotahraptor survive attacks better. 3938 Health, while respectable, isn’t high against a chomper. And seeing how there are plenty of speedboosted chompers running around, depleting that Health shouldn’t be as hard of a thing to do. If you don’t have a speedboosted chomper/heavy hitter, use Slowing moves instead. Decreasing its Speed allows you to attack twice in a row, which will also rack up damage quickly. So in short: Use Immunity to negate Distraction and DoT, use Speedboosted heavy hitters or decrease its Speed! Or use the counters that our Battle Simulator has for you!
