For full Phoenix taming details, get the taming calculator app.
To tame a Phoenix, shoot it with a flame arrow, flamethrower or Fire Wyvern. Weapon quality impacts taming speed; a 200% damage bow will be twice as fast as a 100% bow. Please ignore taming effectiveness and taming times as the Phoenix has unique calculations. Have a good taming technique idea? Share a tip!
You can get it to spawn next to your base because of the following: It always respawns at it's last location, so if the heatwave ends while you are following it you will know where it is for the next heatwave. It also chases you when you eat flowers... hint hint
Really the thing that’s hard with them is finding them as they can be anywhere on the map and that only around three spawn and the fact they only spawn during heat wave. If you find one don’t lose it when it falls to the ground build a six foot high cage around it. If you hav le actually trapped it use a fire wyvern as they are the most effective but arrows and flamethrowers work as well
