For the person who is asking about smoothing balm, it is exclusive for mobile only and you need to buy the smoothing balm with amber. There are three types of smoothing balm, small balm which speeds the taming process by 3x, medium balm which you can’t buy with amber, you can get it by watching advertisements or doing the pursuit piranha hunt. it speeds by 10x. and the last, large balm which you can buy and it speeds by 15x. I hope this helped you :)
Person who cant make kibble: Are you sure there’s water in your pot? I make that mistake all the time. Are you on mobile? Mobile uses a different kibble system. If neither is the problem try using a different creature’s egg.
Easiest way I found is get yourself a nice crossbow and a bunch of tranq arrows and tame up a couple low level(10-25) Broncos and get a nice farm going. Set an forgot tames on the low lvl brontos. By the time you know it you’ll be swimming in all the Kibble!
