Weekly Calendar Explained
Before we dive in to the week, we'll break down how the weekly event calendar works. First, each day is considered started at 10am Eastern on that day. It is possible that wherever you live, it might actually be the previous or next day, so we wanted to help clarify how they determine what day it is. At this time, event creatures & strike towers will be updated as applicable. This information is also noted on the calendar.
Ever wonder why some weeks we’re given 45 attempts on commons and others only 18 or 27? The reason for this is that the volume of attempts is a simple math calculation based on the rarity and number of options. Take the rarity base number and multiply by the number of options and voila, you have your total allowed attempts! Having more variety in the options yields that many more attempts. The flip side is it may be more difficult to find the creature(s) you favor. Below details the number of attempts assigned to each rarity which is used to determine how many attempts you receive (though occasionally, they stray from this math). This is the total you are allotted across all options, so it is important to select your choices wisely.
- Common = 9 per
- Rare = 6 per
- Epic = 3 per
- Legendary/Unique = 1 total
They recently started putting the number of attempts on the calendar again and sometimes stray from the above. Refer to the calendar for the confirmed counts. Each rarity has a different length of time the spawn lasts followed by a different length of time until respawn after despawn. Commons and Rares will last 1 hour with about 5 minutes between. Epics last 2 hours with about 5 minutes in between.
All strikes and trials are represented on the calendar with the level of difficulty along with how long they last (1 day or 2 days). The trials are shown along the very bottom in gray boxes.
Featured Creatures: Commons
Wednesday - Thursday: 36 attempts
- Allosaurus (Global Dawn/Dusk/Night) (Allosinosurus>Thoradolosaur)
- Dilophosaurus Gen 2 (Global Anytime) (Dilophoboa>Spinoconstrictor, Tyrannolophosaur>Tenontorex)
- Dimetrodon Gen 2 (Global Anytime) (Monolometrodon>Monolorhino)
- Parasaurolophus (Local 4 Day/Dawn/Dusk) (Paramoloch,Tragoditis)
The long and short of these two days is 36 is a ton of attempts, and we don't find any of these worth spending extra time to specifically seek out. Putting them in an order of Exclusivity (and accounting a little bit for hybrids), they would go Para, Allo, Diloph, Dime2.
As of writing Tuesday evening, the great majority of those who voted in our Discord poll will be darting whatever crosses their path.
Featured Creatures: Epics
Friday - Saturday: 12 Attempts
- Allosaurus Gen 2 (Event Exclusive) (Alloraptor>Allodrigues)
- Blue (Event Exclusive) (Indoraptor Gen 2)
- Giganotosaurus (Event Exclusive) (Giganyx)
- Lystrosaurus (Local 3 Anytime) (Lystrosuchus)
We are not going to spend the time going over these options in any depth - Giganotosaurus is again the one you want. It is the newest, and it is Event Exclusive. This week may be a little less cut & dry since there are two other Event Exclusive options. We do like Allo2 enough with its fantastic hybrid, Allorodrigues. We would advise one of thes two over the other two, though 12 is a nice lot of attempts, so you might split yours over multiple.
It is no surprise that the extreme majority of those who voted in our Voting Poll will be going for the very new Giganotosaurus. I accidentally left Blue off the poll but doubt it would have made much difference.
Featured Creatures: Legendaries
Sunday: 1 attempt
- Ankylomoloch (Event Exclusive) (Ankylos Lux)
- Indominus Rex (Event Exclusive) (Erlidominus, Indoraptor)
- Rexy (Event Exclusive)
Once again, we would highly recommend you use your one attempt on Rexy. This is one nasty beast, and the only way to obtain her is through events like this or purchases in the shop. If for some reason you are unable to locate a Rexy, Ankylo would be your second best choice. This one does require the Event Exclusive Bumpy to create whereas Indom is fused from Global components.
Rexy is running away with this poll with Ankylomoloch a distant 2nd.
Featured Creatures: Rare
Monday - Tuesday: 24 attempts
- Dreadnoughtus (Local 3 Day/Dawn/Dusk) (Dreadactylus)
- Oviraptor (Global Short Range) (Ovilophosaurus)
- Therizinosaurus (Event Exclusive)
- Tyrannosaurus Rex Gen 2 (Global Day/Dawn/Dusk) (Indominus Rex Gen 2>Indoraptor Gen 2/Indotaurus, Tyrannolophosaur>Tenontorex)
These choices are a little better, and it seems pretty easy to suggest stockpiling the Event Exclusive Therizino for the future. TRex2 isn't an awful choice if you are still working on its many hybrids, but we really think the Event Exclusive is your ideal way to go this week. It's the best way to stay in front of that wall they like to hide so many creatures behind.
Therizino is the leader in our voting poll, as people want to stockpile this event exclusive dna while they can.
Strike Events, Trials, Scents, Treasure Chase, and Hybrid Pursuit!
Strike Events & Trials
Strike Events & Trials will also be JWA Dominion themed and will reward the same Common, Rare, and Epic DNA found at Event Drops. There is a very tiny chance you may be lucky and also receive Legendary in your haul!
We again have FOUR dinosaur specific strikes this week, a TRex2 strike on Wednesday, a Pyroraptor strike on Friday, a Giganotosaurus strike on Sunday, and a Lystrosaurus strike on Tuesday. We've also got the Boost Strikes on Thursday (Attack), Saturday (HP), and Monday (Speed).
We have a Dominion scent strike on both Thursday and Monday. This scent guarantees one Rare spawn and can draw a large variety of creatures. Pop the "i" button to see which ones!
We have a treasure chase spanning three days this week, Friday through Sunday. You can collect up to 25,000 coins and 1 Dominion Scent through each period (Friday will run 11am Eastern to 8pm Eastern, then they will run for 24h each in to Saturday and Sunday, and the final occurrence will go from 8pm Eastern Sunday until 11am Eastern Monday - this allows 4 total chances at the coins and scents!
This week begins the Enteloceros pursuit with Moschops!

If you enjoy our content, please help let others know this is the source of the cash links people just post for the taking all over social media. The same goes for YouTuber Gaming Beaver. All links have a purpose behind them, and that is to promote some kind of media and drive traffic. Most people simply do not know there is actually a purpose behind these links, and we'd like to try to educate as many as we can. Take a moment to politely explain this in these posts. It isn't free money some random stranger on the internet whipped up. Every time these links are shared, it is taking opportunity away from an intended purpose. Please think about that or maybe find some time to visit Gaming Beaver, GamePress JWA, and the Ludia social medias.
*We can not control when Ludia officially deploys these links, but these are the times they are planned to be active.
