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

I love him. He just kinda works. I would have loved to see acute stun on him but that didn’t end up. He is very useful if you are out classed by your opponent and need more than one Dino to take them down.

I like using him as an opening Dino. He has that swap out and heal which gives him back life and is a gentle move so no counter attack. So I bring him on throw a slow or stun. Then his remove positive. Then swap him out hopefully he is next to a tank. Then that one can battle.

His swap in stun is nice but inconsistent. But with that said all around he is a likable ol chap.

I really want to get this one to team level. I’ve played some friendlies with it and the swap in stun is very unreliable. It plays really well with hit and run dinos and can tank a pretty big hit if you need it to. Then Regen that health right back and get out of there.

It was the first 1.6 hybrid I completed and while it looks nice, it isn’t one that I would want to field.

Bleeder to SIA stun, works great if your opponent not immune and the 60% chance on this girl actually seems like a 60% chance for once.

Only thing I question (and this is for all the 1.6 non-uniques) is the rarity tier. This dino and procerathom seem more like legendary dinos. And that new 1.6 rare bird seems more like an epic then a rare.

The 1.7 update increased Edmontoguanadon’s health from 5100 to 5220.

I’ve encountered this thing a couple of times and I gotta say it’s pretty annoying. Anyone got experience with it in 1.8? Can it be used against rat or Thor?

It is annoying, but the only times ive encountered it are in tourneys. Would say its def not a Thor counter, but more like an “annoy your opponent” thing

I haven’t seen it since 1.8 dropped but you are right that it is annoying when played right.

Mine is level 21 and I love it. Even if it gets a hybrid I have no regrets XD

I see a swap team with this dino looking really fun. If Thor wasn’t so used it could actually happen…

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.

Rarity: Epic.
Metahub Tier: Apex Mid.
Health: 5220.
Damage: 1100.
Speed: 107.
Defence: 0%
Critical chance: 5%

Superiority Strike.
Regenerate and Run.
Nullifying Impact.
Greater Stunning Rampage.
Swap in Stun.

The only change to Edmontoguanadon has been an increase to her health. Everything else has remained the same. I have to be honest that this hybrid is a real pain to face in the Arena. Too much stun, nullification and a run away to heal. While not as bad as Paramoloch I do get frustrated playing against it.

What are your thoughts on this hybrid?

I’ve heard it can stand up to Indo G2 quite well, and with that health stat, Superiority Strike and Nullifying Impact, I’m not surprised. If you can Regen-and-run into a Swap-in Savagery or Swap-in Stunning Strike, then come back in later, you can seriously wear down practically any opponent.

Exactly. I usually see it on a team of swappers. Prior to the Boosts 2.0 it would frequently swap out of Dracoceratops.

Group Cleansing Strike.

Greater Emergency Heal.

Resistant to swap prevention (100%)

Edmontoguanadon seen a large health drop but an increase in damage and speed. This is probably to compensate for the fact that she is now very much a heal based creature. All of those cool abilities that Edmontoguanadon had before, which made her a bit of a nuisance in the Arena, have gone. Although she has resilient impact and group cleansing strike, she is now built around healing others and herself far more than she ever was. Having not face Edmontoguanadon since 2.0 dropped I don’t know whether she will remain as much of a pain or less/more than she was previously. I don’t think she’ll really be Arena material anymore though.

Edmontoguanadon’s new ability set marks her as a good healer choice on teams facing the low end Raid bosses. Having a healer is always a good option and in this regard Edmontoguanadon is likely to do well if the rest of the team can pull their weight.

What are your thoughts on Edmontoguanadon after 2.0 and how would you use her now?
