New players Advice[edit]

  • If you don't see the Engram on your engram list, it means you are not high enough level. You need to be level 40 to learn the engram. But you don't have to ride every dino you tame, they are also quite useful unsaddled.

Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Remember that you need a Smithy to craft the Ankylo Saddle
  • The Ankylo is a relatively slow dino, but can carry quite a lot. Useful for short range transport.


  • The Ankylo has so many spikes so it's hard to visualize where the saddle could go or how the mount could be comfortable to the rider.
