Try to make them fall into a ravine. Flyers help with this tactic. Or better, look for some that spawned or fell into one. There’s a ravine on my SP game where there are around 11 allos that fell into it. After getting them into a ravine, kill off all but the one you’d like to tame. Proceed in taming as usual.
If you really think about it, these are SOOO underrated. Incredibly high damage and speed. A pack of 10 is easily better than a Giga. 3-4 ballista bolts, (lvl 29 btw) can make a Giga rage, and ballista bolts have a VERY long range, so... you’re dead if you’re riding it. Against a level 30 player. You see 10 Allos coming for you? Run for your ballista? 3-4 Allos dead, still 7 Allos killing you. Even rockets against 10 or so Allos? Crap. You’re still dead. They are so fast and can 20 shot ANY creature in the game if it’s an alpha. Yes, Titantos? Dead in 20 shots. (5% of the creatures health over time.) (Doesn’t work on bosses.) Compared to a Rex, an alpha Allo is arguably equal. Base stats of the Rex are 1100 health and 62 damage. Alpha Allo is 787.5 health and 52.5 damage. They have much faster DPS than Rexes and have better stamina, allowing for more overall damage. Not as much health, but still. To a wild Giga (level 1) with the alpha attack they deal 4000 damage. 4000!!!!!!!!!!
They say beaches are low resource/low threat areas right? WRONG! I used to live in one close to a cold region and some of those decided to run around the beach killing everything there. Fine, I hid from them in my tatch base and once they were far enough I thought I was safe, that until another freaking pack started doing the same. I hid my Dilo (Galinha Punk, my beloved only tame, great companion) inside the base and ran through the ocean to hide on some stones. And this was way before they cold spot me. Result: I had to hold my tears and watch in horror as they destroyed the little base I put on all my effort to build, killed my poor boy and kept going like it was nothing! Their levels were way too high, I couldn't fight them, but I was so sad I tried, died, couldn't respawn there cause I had no bed anymore, and couldn't get my stuff because they were near. Of course i waited until they went away, and of course wild dilos destroyed the rest of my stuff. I shall have my revenge!
Pretty awesome tames... It's the perfect tame between a raptor and a Rex. When I started off in a new server I could get a level 80 allo before my stone base was even enclosed properly! I slapped a saddle on that bad boy and got another level 85 allo. I now also have 3 low level carno's for the heck of it and I can defend my base without any X plants! They are perfect to kill Rex's brontos or anything not stronger than a Giga! It's pretty easy to tame once knocked out. I just fed it biotoxin every ten minutes on mobile. They're very, very, very fast. I have 145 speed and they are fast enough to not just catch up but even attack me. When trying to tame get them running through the forest. That will thin the crowd and takes away the Pack Leader buff from the high level allo. Lure it in a trap and a free Rex raptor mix is yours! Btw. Just two allo's gives you a pack leader buff on the highest level allo you have, so you know which one is gonna be my ride...
If you have a tuso and you have a problem with a pack of these near your home then lure the allos to the river/sea/lake you keep the tuso in and use the tuso to grab the weaker allosaurs of the suffice and drag them under to drown and harvest the meat then when only the pack alpha is left grab it too and hold it over the beach so when it knocks out it falls unconscious on the beach and then you can tame it with the meat of the others! 😁
These things can be a real pain early on. My brother and I had just started on Valgaro and we where doing good. We had a nice house with a great view of the river, a breeding pair of raptors and a bunch of other various animals. Life was good. one day we decided to explore the other side of the river. At first everything seemed fine, but then on our way back we saw them, two allosauruses blocking our home. We tried to sneak past but they saw us and chased us all the way home. Suddenly they turned and we thought we were safe. But then we saw why they turned. They had found our beloved pets and were attacking them. The battle was fierce and it looked like we might when win. But then one by one our pets showed up in the death chat until only our raptors where left, the prize of our position. By now one of the allosaurus had died and there was just one left. But that one was to much and we lost everything. moral of the story run away from your hour not towards.
These guys are everywhere in Valguero. My friend and I were gathering resources when I saw them I ran and remembered Ark's loading screen had a tip that said "You don't have to run faster then the dinos you just have to run faster then your friend" so I used my bola in my hotbar and got my friend. Moral of the story get bolas lots of them
THE best way to tame anything is to use an argy cage, simply use like 5 dinosaur gateways made of stone and keep one gate door open before you find a dino to tame, once you do, lead it to the cage and then run out through one of the gaps between the gateway frames and obviously close the door and, tadaa, one stuck dino to tame
Trap idea: Put a 2by2 stone trap, put a bear trap in the middle, Lure it in, Close it off, Then it’s yours!, And my second idea, Make a 2by2 stone foundation, Place 2-3 high stone pillars, smack the bear trap down, Close it in, Then you’re free to kill it for meat, or tame it.
Make a taming pen with stone gateways, 2/4 on each side, 1 on the front side, and fill the back side with one doorframe with door and the rest walls. Place a large bear trap in the middle. Trap the allo in the pen in the bear trap so that you can safely close the front side gateway (the rest should be closed. If needed, kill the others. Make a foundation with a staircase on the backside. Now easily knock at tame the allo. This probably works for more dinos but only tried with allo.
