How can I take down and tame a dinosaur?
The tamed process in ARK Surival Evolved and other similar games isn't exactly easy and instant, but neither is it very complicated. It is about knowing the process and practicing it well with various creatures. First of all, you have to face the dinosaur and take it down. Each creature has its own predetermined strength and health, so you need to take that into account when using the method.
Weak creatures like the Diplodocus in Dodo o they can be knocked down with the bare fist. However, with the stronger ones with the Rex or the Triceratops you have to equip yourself with weapons. Two recommended with a wide range are the slingshot or tranquilizer dart crossbow, although the latter is somewhat complex to manufacture.
Your stamina and level will also have a lot to do with not dying easily fighting beasts. Once you've done enough damage, the dinosaurs they will fall into a state of unconsciousness.
You can easily check this by approaching them and seeing the purple “Unconscious” bar in their stats. Below that bar is another brown bar called “Taming” which is the one you need to completely fill in order to successfully tame the beast. However, the method of filling this bar will depend on the diets of each dinosaur species.
How do I fill in the Taming bar? - What are the diets of each species?
Now, the key to filling the bar is food in ARK and saving the game without starving. You have to feed the beast while it is unconscious. Each species has its own different food tastes. However, the simplest option is to check whether it is a herbivore or a carnivore. If he is a herbivore, his diet will mainly be berries, if he is a carnivore, you will feed him meat.
However, the pet's unconsciousness will not be permanent and you need to make sure it stays asleep. Otherwise, you will lose your taming process if the dinosaur wakes up. To achieve this, you need to collect special black berries called "narcoberries". These berries or "berries" act as sleeping pills which prolong the unconscious state.
Therefore, you should feed them both these berries and the food in their diet. Once the bar has been filled. THE animal will wake up tame and you will be able to access it with several new options. Among them, access the inventory, ask them to follow you and most importantly, mount it.
How to tame other species? Golems, kangaroos and so on.
The difference in the tastes of each creature is that some prefer only certain types of berries and others only certain types of meat. Likewise, you will learn this little by little as you experience playing ARK, no matter what time or time you prefer to play day or night, adding that this requires some beasts to have more elaborate methods of being tamed.
For example, to tame the famously named "kangaroo", Procoptodon requires another strategy. The animal is very fast, then you'll have to ride another beast quick to drive it out. Equip the crossbow with tranquilizer arrows to get shot while chasing it.
Once returned, to tame it, the food it needs besides narcotics are rare mushrooms or seeds of the special plant X found in swamps. Once you give it these foods, the animal can be easily tamed. Another rare creature to tame is the Golem. This is a huge monster made of stone that you must shoot down using cannonballs.
The golem did moves fast so this is not an easy task. It's better create a metal trap to surround your cannon. This way the golem will not pass and you can give it all the necessary cannon shots. Once knocked down you can proceed to tame it.
