There’s an epic strike event afoot, and it’s one that almost ANYONE can beat — if you follow the right strategy that is!!!

Disclaimer: Low level players CAN beat this strike IF they have bleeding dinosaurs and a single dinosaur with Instant Distraction (at almost any level). We’ll cover the low level guide below. While it isn’t a guarantee (because a low enough level instant distraction dino may still die to a monster critical hit), it’s about as close as you can get to a free Epic incubator using our strategy below!

Let’s dive in!

You are facing a very powerful creature! Luckily for us, Damage Over Time Dinosaurs have gained a lot in usefulness and popularity, so many of you already have some options to take it down very easily.

If you’re lucky enough to have Spinotasuchus, open with it, use Lethal Wound, followed by anything that will be able to sustain three turns (which shouldn’t be too difficult to find). Something with Instant Distract would work well, or any distraction moves that’ll delay things for you.

Otherwise, you can use any other Dinosaur that will have Lethal Wound. Among the Epics, your choice should be Spinosaurus Gen 2. Simply follow up with anything that will be able to sustain three turns (which shouldn’t be too difficult to find).

Do not have these two? Worry not, as Suchotator, a very easily obtainable Rare Dinosaur has Lethal Wound as well. Simply follow up with anything that will be able to sustain three turns (which shouldn’t be too difficult to find).

Do not have any of these three Dinosaurs? Then bring any Dinosaurs with Damage Over Time moves. Allow two of them to die (after using your bleeding move), and follow up with anything that will be able to sustain three turns (which shouldn’t be too difficult to find).

If you do not have any bleeders, then your only option is to rely on fast creatures with a damage debuff. However, know that most Raptors, even if they inflict a debuff on T-Rex, will die regardless of the debuff if T-Rex uses Defense shattering Rampage (considering that most Raptors are around level 20). Therefore, your best bet truly is with bleeders!

Low Level Guide

Even if you’re a brand new player, we’ve got a way to beat this that’s tricky. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Two dinosaurs with swap in bleed or lethal wound at ANY LEVEL.
  • One dinosaur with Instant Distraction at ANY LEVEL.
  • One extra dinosaur (doesn’t matter what it is).

Some examples of swap in bleed or lethal wound dinosaurs that are commons and easily obtainable are Suchomimus, Dimorphodon, Suchotator, Dimodactylus, Spinosaurus, Spinosaurus Gen 2.

Some examples of dinosaurs with instant distract are Wuerhosaurus, Suchotator, Diplocaulus Gen 2, Kentrosaurus, Koolasuchus Gen 2, Ornithomimus.

Here’s how you do this.

Because bleeding damage stacks, you need to get your two bleeds off and then use your distraction to make those two bleeds last for one more turn. So if you’re using two swap-in-bleeding dinosaurs you do this –

  • Open with any dino.
  • DO NOT attack. Instead, swap in bleed. That dino will die.
  • Put out any NON BLEEDING dino – and repeat the above step. DO NOT attack. Swap into your swap-in bleeder.
  • Put in your dinosaur with instant distract and use instant distract.

This will make the level 30 t-rex take 25% damage on turn one and kill your first dino. It’ll take 50% damage on turn 2 and kill your second dino. And it’ll take 25% damage on turn 3 (dying) and won’t kill your third dino if you used instant distract.

If you’re using a lethal wound dinosaur, you do essentially the same thing, only you use lethal wound instead of swapping to a bleeder. So lead with your lethal wound dino (Suchotator), use lethal wound, and let Suchotator die. Then lead any non-bleeder, and swap into a swap in bleeder.

So basically, even a team of all level 1 and 6 dinosaurs can beat this epic strike and get a free Epic incubator with the right lineup of low-level dinosaurs!

The Reward
