There are many creatures that are overrated in the game as of now that are always being asked for nerfs, and some I feel are quite unjustified. So, here are my top 5 overrated creatures for JWA as of now that shouldn’t get nerfs.
5 . This isn’t just 1 spot here, but rather #5 is a 3-way tie between Mortem rex, allosaurus gen 2, and acrocanthosaurus. The reason is they can all cleanse distraction. Let’s first get mortem out of the way by saying it’s an apex, and while it can cleanse distraction, most cunnings can still take care of it decently well. Besides, it’s an apex, so it should be strong. Now let’s cover the epic duo. These 2 are also not broken in any way because well, it’s their basic attack. If they had cleansing impact, then sure that’s pretty darn good. But being their basic move is something different and it’s not like they stomp on cunnings. They are fine.
4 . Next up is a creature that has been getting complaints recently, and I have no idea why, and that is tenontorex. I do not know why people are complaining about this one. Tenontorex is a good creature designed for the endgame, so of course it is strong. It is usually slow and isn’t fully immune to anything which can bite you, but this thing is still very strong. But is it broken? No. There are ways around it that are easy to use.
3 . Next up on the list is another unique that is much more common than tenontorex and that is thoradolosaur. Thor is decently strong and gets stronger when boosted, but there are so many ways to take it down it’s not that hard to do. Even for lower players, there are many easy-to-level options that you have for thor like monolometrodon, procerathomimus, smiloceph, and diplovenator. And then when you get better creatures, there are many who also counter thor while also being relevant like ardentismaxima, geminititan, and erlikospyx. And then you have the apexes, 3 of the 4 of which also crush thor. Thor is fine. Yes, it is easy to level, but there are plenty of ways to deal with it.
2 . Next on the list is sarcorixis. Sarco is in an interesting spot, and that is because the epic meta it’s in favors it too much. Does it need a nerf? No. But rather the creatures around it need buffs to knock it back into line. For some reason, many of the epic hybrids need to be raid-oriented. But is it a broken creature? No. It’s a strong epic, but not one that needs a nerf. In the arena, creatures like grypo, maxima, ankylocodon, and the new ankylodicirus just shut it down.
1 . Finally, we have the overrated king to rule them all: Monolometrodon. I see people saying this thing is better than monolorhino, which is completely false in almost every way. Unboosted, monolometrodon is good, but it doesn’t excel. Heck I dropped it in the last legendary tournament because it just gets outsped by other popular legendaries like eremoceros, smiloceph, and grylenken while slower creatures like diplodocus and mammotherium could tackle it too. It also suffers from something that mags doesn’t (So stop saying they are about equal. Yes they are in the same GP tier, but mags is at the might end while monolometrodon is near the lower end): turn 3. This is the thorn in its side. Yes, it can kill many creatures in 2 hits, but after turn 3, it’s a sitting duck and easy pickings for many things. Then you throw boosts into the mix, and while it get’s stronger, so do the things that take advantage of it. Trykos can hit it into 1-shot range and gems get strong enough to take it in 2. Creatures like spyx will crush it, as will other lower cunnings like erlikogamma and procerathomimus. This thing isn’t broken. It’s a strong legendary, and was probably made that way to stop the thor complaints, but it isn’t OP or broken or anything like that.
