DNA is obtained by attacking wild dinosaurs or stealing it from other players. The DNA obtained will be the same as the dino attacked. It is possible to get DNA from rare dinos during events or missions, and it behaves in the same way. No Super Rare Dino DNA has been released yet.
In order to regenerate dinos using DNA you need at least 50%. More DNA means a stronger dino, up to 100% regen. The stats are better than the regular dino, of the same level, by a certain percentage. You can find the level stats of each dino on its page. (hopefully, we're still working on it!)
The P value depends on the % regeneration.
Here is an example
- A 75% regen dino has an equivalent normal dino, of the same level, with health of 1200 and an attack of 900
- From the chart, the P value is 1.15
- The regen dino has 1380 HP and 1035 ATK
DNA CollectionsThere are DNA versions of nearly all the dinosaurs in the game (normal Dinosaurs), since there are so many, some people make it a point to collect them all, while some collections range from only 2-10 Dinosaurs, there are still a few players with an impressive collection.
Occasionally, there are tasks where players can defeat rare dinosaurs in the wild and have a chance of obtaining rare DNA. Since the first release of rare DNA tasks, there has been a wide variety including;
And there may still be more to come. Rare DNA is very popular and a lot of players go insane to collect the highest percentage they can. Most of the rares are quite weak such as the Gallimimus and Microraptor, so collecting a higher percentage wouldn't put them on par with stronger rares. However, some of the rare Dinosaurs are decent if not good, such as the Cryolophosaurus, Austroraptor and the Pachycephalosaurus. Collecting 100% DNA from those Rare Dinosaurs will improve it's already good stats by 130%, hence making Rare DNA collection an exciting task.
Super Rare DNA
Upon the release of the second batch of Squad Tasks, SR Mosasaurus DNA was made available. Players who defeated task dinos were able to get 5% of SR DNA. The next SR DNA was Yutyrannus which was available in special Weekend Tasks. Players to recieve 10% instead of 5%. Shadow island Saga allowed players to recieve SR DNA from rare targets at 10%. During the Second Acquisition Special Task, players obtained 15% instead of the 10%. However during the Tasks of Fortune, players once again obtained 10% instead of the 15% from the previous task.
Future SR DNA recieved will either be 10% or 15% in future tasks and events.
