If u are advanced,find a good lvl grab it with a squid and grab it with its tentacles while a friend knocks it out with a crossbow.
THESE ARE ALSO FOUND IN THE LOST ISLAND MAP, IT WON'T SHOW UP ON DODO DEX SO UP THIS TO SPREAD THE WORD.
Pro tip! Anglerfish can be caught in a fish basket!
DO NOT use a crossbow for knocking out! Not for all shots anyway.
Use half to 60% of what Dododex recommends for crossbow, then finish the rest with harpoon tranq to avoid killing these guys.
I feel like Dododex is way off with their approximation of a 19% chance of death with a crossbow tranq. I'd say it's more of a 80%+ chance you will kill these with tranq only.
Be really care when knocking these things out from a distance! Unfortunately they don't look knocked out when they are so continuing to shoot darts at them can be an easy an unfortunate mistake to make.
Sister and I found one max level in the aberation area in Valguero.
We began darting it to tame it.
It did not want to be tamed.
It literally beached itself and died.
I caught the whole thing on clip.
I was laughing but my sister was pissed.
- Main use for this tame is using the Angler as a "lure" for other anglers kill anglers for their gel. The gel is the longest burning fuel in the game at approx. 6 minutes per 1 gel
- secondly use is a light source underwater
You don’t need a saddle to ride them.
Can be used to pick up 60ish pearls instead of 6 or so by hand. Awesome tame now since the update added this.
Use an dolphin to tame because you can shoot off the back and nothing will agro it 👍
Easy tame on Fjordur next to swamp island
