This is the new Mammoth hybrid for 1.13 and as many people have pointed out, it’s VERY strong. But how strong?
Moveset & Stats:
5% Crit Chance
Persistent Ferocious Strike
This is essentially the same creature as Mammotherium in 1.12, having only exchanged 300 health for 10% armor and distraction immunity, making it much stronger when combined with the zealous nerfing that occurred this patch. But what counters it?
At the moment, VERY little.
It’s best counters so far are Entelomoth and Gorgosuchus. Other notable creatures that can win are Gemini, Tryostronix, and Baryonyx, all at roughly a 50/50 split. One notable Dino that does well against this monster is Dilorach, the scourge of the games early days, which has since fallen out of favor in most teams. While it DOES NOT beat Mammolania, it does survive, severely weaken it, and run, making it one of the VERY few creatures that will live to fight another day. If you don’t have one of these, you should try to use stunning creatures to the best of your ability to keep its attacks down. Nullification doesn’t work well, dodging isn’t effective, Distraction is useless, and tanking is impossible for nearly the entire roster. If you cannot Stun it, your best alternative is to slow it down with one Dino and try to chomp it with the next, but beware of its shields, which can cleanse, heal and speed up, or slow you down for their next Dino. Good luck and I hope you never meet one you can’t beat.
