Steph Flemming writes some tips: "The Obsidian Armor upgrade makes it harder for enemies to hit Dino-Rang AND it changes his look. Use the Stonefist Traps to surprise and defeat aggressive enemies.
In Battle Mode the Boomerang Shield is great for blocking ranged attacks. This is a rare skill in the Skylands. If they are playing with a ranged character use Dino-Rang and his Boomerang Shield to defeat them. Dino-Rang’s Heroic Challenge, Stop, Sheep Thieves, gives you +3 to armor when you beat it."
