So with the new update we are no longer at the mercy of Ludia’s rotation. We are now capable of picking which sDNA we wish to earn.
As simple as it seems I think there are definitely a few things to consider with this.
Looking for others thoughts and share my own.
My thoughts for now…
So I have all the sHybrids, 10 lvl 1 Indo’s, 9 or so Mono’s, 2 lvl 20’s, 7 or so Tape’s, 2 lvl 20’s, 4 lvl 10 Spino’s and maybe 10 lvl 10 Diplo’s and 4 lvl 10 Dime’s
Priorities certainly change in this game as you progress and sHybrids have the worst stat for lvl/fusion increases in the game which is something to consider.
I really like Spino and Dime but after you add indoraptors they are kind of meh and of no importance. With their short cool downs, keeping them in the lvl 1-10 range for tournaments (depending on your strat) is currently where i find them most useful but not needed by any means. Spino can be useful for me still with it’s high attack but i have 4, so don’t need more right now as they are used very infrequently for pve
With that being said I will not be farming sDNA for Dime or spino anytime soon despite how much I like Spinotasuchus
Diplo, the weakest of all the sHybrids and only amphib. I use this thing a good bit for tournaments and on d1’s game as she is pre indoraptor. On my game after indoraptor my lvl 10’s are pretty much strictly tournament duty and occasional rare pve. Even at lvl 20 they are not all that impressive but eventually i would like a few lvl 20’s. They are also the least expensive so getting copies of them from just random sarco sDNA prizes isn’t all that difficult. Not going to put this in rotation currently.
Brings us to mono and tape, I think these are pretty solid choices to go with and will stick with how the game had it prior to the update. I could use more lvl20’s and the lvl 10’s are still useful even with lvl 1 indoraptors. These dino’s are super useful on both D1 and D2’s games as well and will probably keep theirs the same. After I win a few more spinoraptors on D2’s game i will eventually farm some kapro s dna for some spino’s, they are awesome at lvl 10 in the 4-6k ferocity team range.
Last thought is the raptor sDNA, i think it is going to be tempting for most mid/early players to cycle this out of the event sDNA prizes and I would urge against it. As useless as it seems at times there will be a time when you will be glad to have 25k + raptor sDNA. It’s kind of like some kind of high yield penny investment. Seems pointless but after a while you will be glad.
I’ll keep the mono and raptor sDNA in the pve mission prizes and the tape in the code 19’s for now. New sHybrid coming might shake things up a bit will have to wait and see.
Those are my thoughts, curious what other players are doing and why.
