Please Note: These strike events with level 30 dinosaurs are quite hard. Even level 30 common dinosaurs can pose a real challenge for a team of level 20’s if you don’t play your cards right. We aim to give you the best chance to win, but don’t just use our counters because we said they’re good. Be aware of your team strengths and what you’ve invested coins into. At the end of the day, you’ve gotta survive some brutal attacks to pull off the win.

Damage & Health Chart

Indoraptor has a lot of strengths and only one real weakness – a lack of Immunity. It has a cleanse to deal with bleeding and slows. It has a dodge to evade 100% of damage half of the time. It shatters shields and armor. And dang does it hit like a truck. But thank the dino-lords it doesn’t have immunity.

Here’s our chart of the moves, damage, and health of this monsters at level 30.

Dinosaur/Move Health (At Lvl 30) Damage (At Lvl 30)
Indoraptor 4741 1702
Defense Shattering Strike 1702
Cleansing Impact 2553
Defense Shattering Rampage 3404
Evasive Stance

 

Unfortunately, hitting like a truck poses a real problem for a lot of players. But at least you only have to beat 1 level 30 dino to win this match, which as we all know is doable!

So how do you beat this crazy Indoraptor strike?

Strategy

Distraction is out because of cleansing, unless you happen to distract when it doesn’t use cleanse. Shielding is out too for the same reason. Unless you shield when it doesn’t use defense shattering rampage, you’re putting yourself in a bad spot. Having a kit to distract and stun offers a great check, but not everyone has that level of dinosaurs.

But remember, you’re beating one dino with four, so it is plenty possible with lower level teams. You just need to know how to beat the kit.

Dilorachierus and Trykosaurs are the two unique counters to use. Dilorachierus can distract turn one (and usually survive if it isn’t hit critically on the next turn) and it’s FASTER than indo which helps tremendously. And if Indo cloaks on turn one, the green chicken can try for a devastating stun, followed by a devastating hit and run.

Trykosaurus is equally as useful because when played right, you can instant distract a defense shattering rampage and you can instant invincibility a cleansing impact or armor piercing strike. And in both cases, you get to hit indo with counter damage. Open with a defense shattering strike (to try to fish out the cleansing impact) and if you do fish it out, you can alternate your distract, then shield, then distract.

Of course, not a lot of people have uniques like this. So let’s talk lower level counters.

Suchotator can be a really great counter (especially at higher levels around 20 or so). Opening with Nullifying Impact means you get rid of any cloak that might exist. And if you fish out the cleansing impact, you can instant distract to reduce damage. But a better method might be using lethal wound. Being slower means if indoraptor uses its cloak turn one, you get to hit it for potential damage, and give it a nasty damage over time. And if it tries to cleansing impact you on turn one (it’s strongest attack), you get to lay a lethal wound on it that will last three turns and kill it (as long as your Suchotator is level 14 or above). Opening with lethal wound has a second advantage too. Because if indo cloaks turn one, turn two you can still get rid of that cloak. At that point you’ve got a great opening. Anything with a swap in wound or a swap in shattering rampage can lay on even more devastation, and anything above 128 speed will be faster than indo to clean up.

As usual, that darn Suchotator is the low level mvp. But let’s get desperate. How low can we go?

Low Level Counter Guide (NEW)

If you’re a newer player who has a lot of trouble with these level 30 strikes, this section is for you.¬†The rules of the low level counter guide are simple. Can we figure out a way to beat a strike like this one with using only level 15 and lower dinosaurs? And if so, how would someone with a team like that pull it off?

When dealing with dinos with such low levels, we’re really going to rely on bleeding, nullifying and stunning to win matches like this. Here’s my recommended strategy.

  • Level 14 Suchotator
  • Any level Dimorphodon
  • Any level Suchomimus
  • Any level Tanycolagreus

Here’s how this plays out. The goal is to get Indoraptor to use cleansing impact, then swap in your bleeders one after the other. There are two phases to this process. The phase BEFORE indo does cleansing impact, and the phase AFTER it does cleansing impact.

Phase 1: Get Indo to use Cleansing Impact

  • Turn 1: Lead with Suchotator. Use Lethal Wound. Indoraptor goes first and will use some move. You will survive if Indo doesn’t critically hit you with cleansing impact.
  • Turn 2:¬†If indo didn’t use Cleansing Impact – use instant distraction. If it did use cleansing impact — initiate phase 2.
  • Turn 3:¬†If indo STILL hasn’t used Cleansing Impact and you still are sitting there with Suchotator – use whatever you want because you gonna die but it’s gonna die too if it doesn’t use cleansing impact now…
  • Turn 4:¬†At this point if indo still hasn’t used cleansing impact, it’s dead, or it has like 1 health and you can put in Tanycolagreus to kill it with nullifying impact.

Phase 2: Stack Damage Over Time until Indo is going to die and then Drop it.

  • Turn ??: After indo used cleansing impact, you need to swap in Dimorphodon or Suchomimus to activate their swap-in wound. If you lost your Suchotator on turn 1 due to a critical hit, you’re probably screwed unless your Tany is really high level. If you didn’t lose your Suchotator on turn 1 (or turn 2 or 3) swap to dimorphodon or suchomimus. Indo will kill dimorphodon or suchomimus, forcing you to choose a next dino.
  • Next Turn:¬†Choose TANYCOLAGREUS after losing your first bleeder,¬†but don’t use tany unless you can see tany is going to kill Indoraptor with Nullifying Impact.¬†Instead, swap to the other bleeder, either suchomimus or Dimorphodon. It will die but it will hit Indo with another 25% damage over time for 2 turns.
  • Last Turn:¬†Choose Tanycolagreus. At this point Indo will either already be dead or have less than 600 health remaining. Use Nullifying Impact to win.

So the short version that is most likely how this will go for nearly all players –

  • Indo uses cleansing impact. Suchotator uses Lethal wound (and barely survives).
  • Swap Suchotator for Suchomimus or Dimorphodon. Indo uses Defense Shattering Rampage to kill your dino.
  • Bring in Tany and swap to your last bleeder (or just kill indo if tany can do it).
  • Bring in Tany and kill indo with Nullifying Impact.

The only reason you have to wait for that Cleansing Impact to get burned before swapping is because if the robot is smart enough to use armor piercing strike and THEN cleansing impact and you swap – it can clear your 33% damage and your swap in 25% damage all in one smart move. But using this strategy, and holding off on phase 2 until Indo blows its cleansing impact, even a cloak from Indo won’t save it. In fact, a cloak will just help you kill it faster. If it just uses it’s most powerful sledge-hammer moves on your squad, you’ll still come out ahead (so long as it doesn’t crit you on turn 1)!!!

In Conclusion

This strike is totally doable with cleverness from lower level players. The trick here is getting Indoraptor to burn it’s Cleansing Impact, and then getting it with damage over time at lower levels. It’s one of the easier level 30 strike events in terms of difficulty based on the matchups I worked out, and is definitely doable for anyone with Suchotator at level 14, Dimorphodon, Suchomimus, and Tanycolagreus (the last three at any level).

Good luck out there! Let us know how it goes!
