Looking to tame one of these behemoths of the sauropod variety? Here’s some info to help you get one! :D Alright for this one, it’s a passive tame, depending on what difficulty you are on you will need at least 5 fria curry, I will tell you what it’s for later! Next is good armor, tek works good, flak is good and cheap to make, Also plan on bringing some medical brews! This will be priority in taming one of these! And finnaly your taming foods! These guys are herbivores, like every dinosaur in the ark, they all like a specific kibble on Pc I’m pretty sure this one likes exceptional! And the last thing to pack in your bag is a really good weapon, It’s optional if you want to use ranged or go melee! Not sure? I recommend bringing both a ranged weapon, and a melee weapon! :D Ok now the fun part, but first these guys spawn exclusively on lost island, I find them more common in the very harsh conditions where they thrive, Desert, arctic, volcano, Etc. NOW the fun part, I would bring a flying tame with you, as many problems occur when messing with these guys for the first time, they’re temperament is aggressive, when approached within 20 meters or so! When you spot one (normally 3 but some might have been killed off by other creatures) here’s where the fria curry comes in! Take your flyer and land it out of the amargasaurs way, cryopod it if you don’t want it to die while taming! Sip your fria curry, equip your weapons and armor and put the med brews in a easily accessible hotbar slot, and make your way over to the amargasaur, Since you drank the curry you can walk up to it without it getting aggro! Next as if you were to acces a tame option menu, you will see a bright pink text saying “Sync Tempature” this means you are ready to start taming, click the amargasaur to complete syncing temps with it, it will then follow you arround, herbivores are safe from the amargasaur, carnivores are the primary target for them! The amargasaur you synced temps with will follow you until it detects a close by carnivore, it will then chase it down and this will be your chance to start filling the taming bar, To do this you will need to do as much damage as possible to the amargasaur’s target, without hitting the amargasaur, it’s ok if you accidentally hit it once or twice, but once it’s under 80% health and you hit it the amargasaur will aggro on you regardless of the curry! The more damage you do to the amargasaur’s target, the faster the Amargasaur will get hungry, feed the sauropod and continue fighting, the Dino’s favourite food other than kibble is veggies! The faster you tame the amargasaur the better because the fria curry will wear off eventually, so unless you brought 3/5 you should be good to go! The type or level of carnivore doesn’t effect taming, it’s only the damage you put in, and keeping the amargasaur out of the way of heavy damage, hence the medical brews! Keep fighting and occasionally checking the curry’s timer, when it gets below 20 seconds it’s time to get on your flyer and drink another curry! Continue feeding it and eventually, you tamed the a,argasaurus! For what purpose? Good question, amargasaur’s spikes act as armor, making them less vulnerable, you can also remove one of the spikes, but this will lower the resistance of the spikes with each one removed, they will grow back pretty quick! These spikes you collected can be used for enhancing the speed and amount of sap production! The amargasaur can also can shoot these spikes at a aggressor saddle, or not, when ridden there are three types of spikes you can shoot, (fire, the fire spikes will make a splash zone anything in that zone will continue taking dmg! Ice, ice spikes will also make a splash zone, however this splash zone is slightly bigger than the fire spikes, and it can also freeze anything that continues to stand on the splash zone into a literal ice cube, after about 10 20 seconds the ice will melt! Armor, This one I can’t say what it does, I haven’t tested it yet but this will give you an opportunity to test it out for yourself! :D the amargasaur is a very swift way of traveling as well as transporting goods, as well as being able to effectively defend or escape depending on the circumstances, this makes it a very great tame to have, as it has a variety of attacks quick, does a good amount of damage, and can help with sap production! Thank you guys for the support I really appreciate it, Happy taming, and Take care! :D
To tame one of them beautiful things you need to locate one. After finding one you need to take a fria curry to sync heat with it other wise they will attack you. After syncing heat with it you need to hunt with it first let it attack after wards help it kill it after killing it it will gain taming sometimes when attacking it will get hungry when that happens feed it a berry and continue fighting. Repeat until you gwt these wonderful tames.
I made a trap, lured them in, trap by closing gates, go out of render, eat a soup like calien soup, build another trap ring type area, get an argent and capture a load of oviraptors, consume soup, sync temperature, hunt with it, feed it, repeat this till tamed, boom
Before u go and tame one of these, you need to know how to use insulating soups to sync heat with an amargasaurus. Before I jump into this, know that this is my first ever time sending you a tip on dododex, so pls understand I am not confident at all when sending this tip to millions of ARK players that use dododex and this is one of the first steps i took when taming my amargasaurus. This tip may be trash or make no sense to you, but hey! I'm new here, you can't expect me to make the best tip on the planet. Anyways, without further ado, here's my tip, I guess.
You can sync heat with this amazing creature by using an insulating soup. The type of insulating soup you need is based on where you find the amargasaurus. If you find it in a hot biome, one of the insulating soups you will need to use is calien soup, as it gives you a +50 hyperthermic insulation and gives you a -25% water reduction on the amount of water you use up, therefore, you won't be needing to take constant trips to a water source like a lake or river and you won't need to carry as much waterskins/glass jars.
However, if you find an amargasaurus in a cold place like the north zone, you will need a different insulating soup. The other insulating soup you will need for a cold place is fria curry. It has a +50 hypothermic insulation and a -25% food consumption on the amount of food you digest, so you will not need to constantly stop for food. The effects of both soups last for 15 minutes.
The amount of soup you need depends on the type of taming food you have. If you don't have exceptional kibble or can't make it for whatever reason, it is going to take longer to tame the amargasaurus, therefore, you will need more soup. If you can make exceptional kibble and have it, then you won't need to take lots of soups, although it is a good idea to come with a few soups, just in case the ones you bought weren't enough.
Additionally, if you want to find out how long your desired number of soups is going to last you, you have to do 15 times the amount of soups you are going to bring to sync heat with the amargasaurus for long enough to successfully tame it. Let's say you are crazy about taming the amargasaurus and decide to bring 15 (calien) soups with you. If you want to find out how many hours 15 soups will last you, do 15 (time) X 15 (soups).
Ideally, you really should have both types of soups ready when exploring the ARK, just in case you accidentally bumped into an amargasaurus. Once I was exploring the north zone with my argy and saw an amargasaurus. The only problem is that I didn't have the right soup to tame it. Don't be like me.
The way you will be able to tane these guys is first: find one second: follow it and third when it gets attacked help it with-out it agroing on you and keep doing that and it will respect you and be tamed.
Maybe for a taming idea you have to shoot it’s spikes off and then have an weapon they can knock it out in the area where the spike was shot off repeat the process until it’s knocked out and it’s preferred kibble will probably be exceptional kibble that’s just an idea that’s all…it probably a bad idea lol
They are a passive tame but have aggressive behavior so you have to be sneaky. These guys will be your best friends for sap. You pluck there spike and it gives you sap. They regenerate all heir spikes too. They provide warmth in water. Can fire explosive spikes and have armor piercing AoE attack -ark.fandom.com
The amargasuarus is a diplo-bronto like creature that has giant spikes
All over its back as armor and a tough opponent for large creatures such as rexs and spinos to damage it. It is still unknown if it is rideable or not or being a utility saddle or multi-passenger saddle. ~Steel Cookie 123
Amargasauraus is the most powerful sauropod in the game(aside from the titanasaur) and has one of the highest movement speeds in the game, especially for its size. It has the ability to shoot three different medium ranges spikes that all have their own aura that they make around them. The first is the ice spikes, which, as the name implies, make an aura of ice around them that slows everything inside of it and anything that is in there for long enough becomes temporarily frozen for 20 seconds or until hit. The second type is armor piercing which negates all armor effects of anything inside of its aura range, however it doesn’t reduce Dino’s natural defenses or any kind of shield that anything might have. The third type is focused completely on damage and DOT(Damage over time) and it is fire. Its aura does damage to anything inside of it and after a short amount of time catches them on fire and does DOT for a short time.
The Amargasauraus’s base health is 1250 which is really putting it at the 27th place for highest base health out of 149 dinos. It has 425 base stamina, putting it at 28th place. It’s only other notable star is its torpor at 2250 putting it at 11th place. All of its other important stats are relatively average with 475 weight and, of course, 100% melee.
This creature is an absolute pain in the ass to tame and it is almost impossible to do on your own so it is strongly advised that you do this in multiplayer. The only sound method to do this in single player is to kite it to the plains just outside of the snow area where they are found. Some supplies you will definitely need will be either flak or fur armor, as good as you can get it, a fabricated shotgun, a longneck rifle with a scope, a spyglass(not required but very useful), fria curry, medical brews, veggie cakes, calen soup(recipes can be found on Dododex), and any taming food you can get, preferably exceptional kibble but any kind of plant will work, however the second best thing is rockarrot which in some maps can only be found by getting the seeds from gathering bushes and then farming them in crop plots. What you need to do is eat your fria curry and calien soup while you are far away from the Amargasauraus and then approach it carefully and press the synch temperature button and it will start following you around. Your first objective needs to be to get it to the grass plains outside of the snow area. Once you are there, run around until you find carnivores that will be auto aggrod by the Amargasauraus and it will run towards them and start attacking. The Amargasauraus’s aggro range is massive so make sure you keep your eyes on it and be careful. Once it spots something you will need to do as much damage to the thing it’s fighting as possible without dying or damaging the Amargasauraus. The most common things to find in the grasslands will be raptors, sabertooths, megalania, and the occasional Rex. The more things you kill, the higher the taming bar goes, but along with that the more damage the Amargasauraus will take. This is what the veggie cakes are for. You will need to put them in the last slot of your hotbar and go up to the dino and then feed them to it. Veggie cakes are very useful in many situations as they will heal any herbivores that you feed them to. Every once in a while the Amargasauraus will get hungry, and, as with all passive tames, you will need to feed it. Taming effectiveness will not drop at all if it takes damage, nor if you damage it. The only way for it to lose taming effectiveness is if you don’t kill anything for an extended period of time(roughly 10 minutes). The medical brews are for you to heal if you take damage, and the weapons are to help kill the stuff. Make sure that you don’t bring any tames with you as the Amargasauraus will automatically attack your tame, even if you are already taming the Amargasauraus. The best way is to just bring a flier and a cryopod and just cryopod your flier once you land and just start taming the Amargasauraus from there.
