Proto-Indo-European root meaning "to cover," especially with a roof. It forms all or part of: deck (n.) "covering over part of a ship;" deck (v.) "adorn;" deckle; detect; integument; protect; protection; stegosaurus; tegular; tegument; thatch; thug; tile; Tuileries.
A Yutyrannus fear debuff will cause the stegosaurus to agro the Yutyrannus and will cause it to receive more damage. any weapons or creatures that can penetrate armor are advised. The Net Projectile can dismount the player canceling the Hardened plate buff. Spear Bolt shoot from a Ballista Turret can do a decent amount of damage too and using the Chain Bola you can prevent the stego to getting closer.
Another good strategy is simply taking the stegosaurus away from the battle, using a Quetzal or more effectively a Karkinos since this can throw the stego away, since the stego is slow and Cryopod have cooldown this will make the attacking tribe to lose a lot of time. Ideally you can create a deathpit near your base and throw them in there.
Aiming directly at the small creature or survivor at any mode and right clicking on them will cause Stego to temporarily immobilize and impale them with its tail swing as well as drain all its stamina in the process. This attack can work on creatures with drag weights as high as 550. Anything higher than that will not allow a stegosaurus to use its impale ability. Multiple Stegosaurus can impale a single creature to stack the impale effect and damage, but they have to be on separate ticks to maximize damage. Base points, melee mutations, and level up points factor the effectiveness of the impale ability in having a greater damage output.
A fossil version of the stegosaurus can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being a stegosaurus.
Stegosaurus are able to be tamed in the same way as most other prehistoric creatures. The player simply needs to stay in a 6 block radius of the egg, and the hatchling will be tamed. If the player misses this opportunity, the player must feed the stegosaurus until it is tamed. Alternatively, the player can forcibly tame it with a whip. It can be ordered with a stick, and cannot be ridden due to the large plates on its back. 2b1af7f3a8
