We know all dinosaurs are not created equal. We want to upgrade our dinosaur teams either by replacing them with better dinosaurs or upgrading them with hybrids. Upgrading your dinosaurs on your team by making hybrids involves using resources that are limited so you want to be careful in how you use those resources. Some upgrades are amazing and some are just not worth the resources. This is a list post 1.6 in what I think are some of the best and worst hybrid upgrades for the various rarity of dinosaurs.
Edit Note: This is not a ranking system for what is the best dinosaur. This is a ranking system for people who want to do the best with the resources they have. This is for the best bang for your buck type of players.
So in my opinion, here is a list of some of the 3 best hybrids per rarity level.
Suchotator this rare hybrid made from Irritator Gen 2 and Suchomimus is capable of competing with the bigboys and carrying you all the way up to the midlevels of the Aviary.
Einiasuchus this rare hybrid made form Einosaurus and Nundasuchus is can also compete with some of the bigboys for a while. It may do well in the lower levels of the Aviary but eventually you will shed him for something better. Otherwise it is a good teammate on the way there and even in the Lockwood Estates.
Diplotator this rare hybrid made form Diplocaulus and Irritator Gen2 has a decent skill set, and it can also help you go from Lockwood to the Aviary, after that, you might want to look elsewhere for a better replacement.
Honorable mentions: None
This amazing hybrid is made from Triceratops Rare and Stegosaurus Common. It can compete against almost all creatures except poison dealers and immune creatures. This one can carry you high up the Aviary.
Spinotahraptor This is another great hybrid and it is made from the rare Spinosaurus and rare UtahRaptor. This one can get you to the lower levels of the Aviary.
Procerathomimus This new hybrid is made from the rare Ornithommus and rare arena exclusive Proceraosaurus. It has a similar skill set of the former great monomimus but only faster. It does very well in the Aviary
Honorable Mentions: Postimetrodon, Dimodactylus
Spinotasuchus One of the best hybrids comes from the Epic Spinotahraptor and Kaprosuchus. This hybrid can currently go into the top echelons of the Aviary.
Dracoceratops This is another hybrid you will see in the upper echelons of the Aviary. It comes from the common Dracorex Gen2 and Triceratops Gen 2. Some will argue this is one of the best.
Utasinoraptor This hybrid is made from the combination of the Epic Sinoceratops and Utahraptor. It is another high end Aviary warrior.
Honorable Mentions: Indominus Rex, Tryostronix, Monostegotops
Erlidominus This unique hybrid made from the epic Erlikosaurus and the Legendary hybrid Indominus Rex is the top of the food chain dinosaur.
Trykosaurus This unique hybrid is made from the epic Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Legendary Hybrid Ankyntrosaurus. Trykosaurus is another top of the food chain dinosaur and arguably the best tank in the game.
Diloracheirus This unique hybrid is made from the Legendary hybrid Diloranosaurus and the common Deinocheirus. This is another great dinosaur that can carry you to the end.
Honorable Mentions: Indoraptor, Magnapyritor, Thoradolosaur, Tenotorex
Now in some cases you are going to do a hybrid that is not going to help you that much. In some ways it is a step sideways or even backwards.
This is a list of what I think are the worst three hybrids to make for each rarity level based on ability and how much you get for your resources.
Purrolyth This rare hybrid is made from the common Lythronax and common Purrusaurus Gen 2 only build if you are trying to make the unique Grypolyth
Majundasuchus This rare hybrid is made from the common Majungasaurus and common Nundasuchus it is easily outclassed by almost everything it faces.
Ankylocodon This rare hybrid is made from the common Ankylosaurus Gen 2 and common Ophiacodon this dinosaur is passable and can help bring you up to the Jurassic Ruins level, but after that it is more of a liability than an asset if you take it to the Lockwood estates.
Honorable mentions: None
Sarcorixis: This epic hybrid is made from the rare hybrid Einiasuchus and the common Sarcosuchus appears like a good dinosaur that can carry you up to lockwood and maybe lower parts of the Aviary. The reason why it is on this list, is because it is a giant waste of resources. It is nearly identical to the Einiasuchus, except you lose health, you lose armor, and you lose an Adrenaline pulse to cleanse wounds and poison. All of this for a weak armor piercing, a strike that can lock a creature down, and a very weak swap in move.
Nodaptosaurus This epic hybrid is made from the common Apatosaurus and rare nodosaurus. It is basically target practice for your opponent. It is a key ingredient for many powerful tank hybrids.
Amargocephalus This epic hybrid is made from the common Euoplocephalus and the Rare Amargasaurus. This is another target practice dinosaur that is a key ingredient for a powerful tank hybrid.
Honorable mentions: None
Skoolasaurus This Legendary hybrid is made from the Epic Koolasuchus and the common Scolosaurus. This new hybrid seems like it can do well, but a side by side comparison to fellow Legendary Monostegotops shows you it’s short comings, don’t expect to see this at the top of the Aviary.
Monolometrodon This Legendary hybrid is made from the common Dimetrodon Gen 2 and the Monolophosaurus Gen 2 is powerful and in some cases easy to level, because it is made from commons, but don’t expect it to carry you too far into the Aviary
Rajaylosaurus This legendary hybrid is made from TWO epics. It is made from Rajasaurus and Ankylosaurus. For something that is made from two epics it is rather underwhelming compared to other legendary creatures. Not to mention Anklyosaurus is used to make Trykosaurus. You won’t see this too often at the top of the Aviary.
Honorable mention: Paramoloch,
Tuoramoloch: This Unique is made from the Legendary Paramoloch and the Rare Tuojiangosaurus. Like all unique creatures it is powerful, but it just does not stand up well against other unique creatures. You can climb in the Aviary with this unique, but expect to eventually replace Tuoramoloch with something better.
Pterovexus: This new unique creature is made from the epic Darwinopeterus and the legendary and recently nerfed Monomimus. Although fast, and immune, this creature lacks hit points and is designed to swoop in and swoop out. You can still climb far into the Aviary with this creature but in my opinion you want to save that Darwinopeterus for the Stygidaryx build line. Save that Monolophosaurus for the Monostegotops build line.
Utarinex: This unique creature is made from the legendary hybrid Utasinoraptor and the rare Dracorex. Utarinex used to be top tier, but then it had its distracting ability taken down from 1.5 to 2.0 and even though it was given a little more damage and some speed control. It loses head to head matchups to it’s legendary hybrid ingredient Utasinoraptor. Utasinoraptor does have less hitpoints than Utarinex (not sure why considering Dracorex’s hit points), but it has 15% armor, is faster, and does more damage. Utasinoraptor has the same skill set, except instead of a hit and run, it gets a critical strike. You will still see Utarinex on the top teams, but eventually it will be replaced.
Honorable mention: Grypolyph
