You need two people, one for feeding the black pearls and the other to feed the turtle that is in the grasp of the Tusoteuthis, with sweet vegetable cake for the health and to feed it stimulates berries as well
Listen clostly, dont lure them to the surrface or they wont want to be tamed. Second, it takes one 50 black pearl feeding. Third, they have to be holding onto something. DO NOT BRING PLATFORM SADDLES NEAR THE SQUID IT WILL GLITCH OUT.
Just tamed a 150 on an official server. Building a trap high off the ocean floor works great just trap it and rotate out 150 tamed turtles hp pumped. Took about 2 hours with pearls for the tame. Took 50 pearls every 5-10 min. Happy taming!
OK so for those of you actually looking for tips.
1: it can eat 50 at a time so take 50 with you each time.
2: it hold mounts only for a little bit so if you can, just hop back on the turtle quickly and swim away till the next feeding
3: once you tame it beware manta s and anglers as the tuso cannot hit them while they glitch into the head of the squid. It's not that hard if you prepare to lose everything and keep trying. It's worth it once you do but you will need escorts to help with mantis and anglers such as megaladons.
Don't bother wasting sweet veg cakes and risking high level dinos. Get it to grapple your mount, feed it, swim away with your mount on passive and follow, squid will let go after a while, wait above the squids aggro level until the feeding interval is up and then go back to feed it again. Rinse and repeat until tamed. You don't need to stay in the squids grasp for the whole time, affinity won't drop whilst you wait above it.
The Tusoteuthis is a massive, aggressive squid found in the depths of the oceans. In battle, the Tusoteuthis can grab its prey and knock it unconcious, siphoning its blood to gain health. Once tamed, the ink from a Tusoteuthis can be used as a constant Oil source. Some survivors choose to hunt the Tusoteuthis for its Oil.
