Dinosaur of the Day #13 - Argentinosaurus

Alankylosaurus

Argentinosaurus is a huge dinosaur that was discovered in Argentina in 1987 by Guillermo Heredia. These gigantic herbivores were about 115 feet long and probably weighed around 73 tons, although some estimates place its weight range around the 85 ton mark. These dinosaurs are believed to have walked the Earth during the Cretaceous period—about 92-100 million years ago.

Although this dinosaur is currently listed as one of the largest herbivores to ever walk the planet, that title is in constant danger of being overturned. That’s because larger and large dinosaurs are constantly being discovered. Currently, dinosaurs being discovered in both India and North America are threatening to take the largest dinosaur title away from the Argentinosaurus.

An interesting fact to note about the Argentinosaurus is how much these dinosaurs had to grow before reaching adulthood. It is estimated that the typical dinosaur egg of the Argentinosaurus was about the size of a beach ball. That means that the chicks from these dinosaurs had to grow 25,000 times their original size before they reached adult hood. It is estimated that it would take about 15 years for them to reach this size, which meant they were vulnerable to predation until they reached adult hood.

So, thoughts on this dinosaur? Is it worth including on a team? Tactics and suggestions? What changes would you make and anything else you can think of?

A bit better than Apatosaurus but still, in my opinion, not worth placing on a team. Then again, I rarely see this animal in the wild so I don’t get to level much to have tested it out.

I really want to see this sauropod get a decent hybrid. It’s the largest sauropod in-game lengthwise, possibly height-wise as well. It was actually the biggest ever discovered up until scientists dug up the remains of an even larger sauropod, named Dreadnoughtus Schranii.

I’m really looking forward to some proper titanosaurs. Hopefully some damage dealing capabilities rather than slow and anti-swap.

Pretty pointless to have on your team. No need to level it up because it doesn’t have a hybrid yet. Sure it can do some decent damage with Extended Critical Strike, but the low damage puts it off.

Dangit, I was going to post that video

It has been nearly a year since the Dinosaur of the Day discussions started and I thought it might be nice to slowly revisit them and see how things have changed.

Since release Argentinosaurus has received a slight boost in damage but nothing else has changed. Ability wise, she is just a better version of Apatosaurus. The Extended Critical Strike has the potential to make her worth a field but as I have said before, sauropods are little more than speed bumps and DNA farms for much better hybrids.

I can’t even remember the last time I faced one of these in the Arena. It must be more than a year ago. Has anyone found Argentinosaurus to be worth a play or is she yet again, a dinosaur that sits on the bench?

Argentinosaurus has seen a tiny damage decrease but her stats remain unchanged. She no longer pins opponents but instead removed dodge effects. Otherwise her abilities are mostly the same following the 2.0 update. Argentinosaurus remains a speed bump but I think she has improved a little bit following the update.

As with anything not of a higher rarity, Argentinosaurus won’t see Raid usage. Not unless we get lower rarity bosses in the future and even then…

What do you think about the changes to Argentinosaurus following 2.0 and what uses does she have now?
