Welcome to a new series, JWA Talks! This one will be weekly, not the battle one. I hope. Basically, what we do on this one is select a random topic I think people might enjoy the discussion of.
Today, we talk Monolometrodon, a hybrid completely usurped by Magnapyritor Pre-2.0 that is now actually comparable to the fluffy synapsid.
In terms of full arena, no. Monolometrodon is no threat to the bigger tanks, and even the likes of the Indoraptors, Erlidominus, Spyx, and even Magna, the one it’s meant to clone. But when we begin to actually compare it to Magnapyritor, things become interesting…
First of all, yes, Monolometro is nothing more than a poor man’s Magna. This was the case pre-2.0. After 2.0, lots of people have began to use it along with Magna. So what makes it so special?
First of all, let’s compared the two.
Firstly, Monolo has a better health stat of 4200 over Mag’s 3900, but that’s about it. Every other stat favors Mag’s.
However, not by much.
All that hunting for Dimetrodon, Pyroraptor, and now Irritator for 50 extra attack, 3 extra speed, 15% extra crit.
As far as resistances go, they both have the same, except for Monolo’s 75% rend resistance, compared to Mag’s 50%, a bigger difference than it seems.
Overall, you won’t be losing much if you choose the easy route of Monolometrodon. Two commons that easily spawn via Giga Scent over hunting for 2 rares and and epic?
However, if you choose Magna, remember that it is less likely to be nerfed, meaning your hard work may pay off one day.
Pros Of Choosing Monolo:
-Less hunting (two easily obtained commons)
-Better health and rend resistance
Cons of Choosing Monolo:
-More likely to be nerfed
-Has a hybrid that can always get buffed
Pros Of Choosing Magna
-Less likely to be nerfed
-Overall better stats
-Is a superhybrid
Cons Of Choosing Magna
-More hunting (a rare, another rare, and an epic, all hard to obtain)
-Less health and rend resistance
Hope you like this stuff. I’m not sure if I’ll continue it or not. Leave a comment if you want to continue the discussion, and I’ll catch you here next week, I think.
