Ah yes… while lookin like a endgame creature! It is infact a starter creature! It’s strong but slow. With also a large health pool. I think slowness is worth it! But you can pair them with many creatures like argentavis!
I recommend using Mejoberries if you are just starting playing on the map. I recommend if you can do regular kibble!
Slingshots possible! But not recommended! Use tranq darts or arrows! But use darts if it’s high level! Do not use darts on low levels!
First of all, let’s talk about the utilities of a Anky. They are amazing metal gatherers! It also has a weight reduction to metal. So any time you run out of metal, (which for me i run out of metal all the time) use an anky!
Now here is what you need to tame one:
- 10-20 Tranq arrows and a bow/crossbow (varies on the level)
-Berries and/or kibble
A couple notes about taming:
You won’t need any bolas, but if you want you could bring a big bear trap. Even though it’s unnecessary.
Also It’s torpor drops really slowly. So narcotics aren’t usually needed.
Now you maybe be wondering, where do I find this dude? One spot is on herbivore island. It’s way on the right side of the island. On your map it sticks out in the ocean. Another place is the Red Woods. And only go there if you are DESPERATE. It is near the area where the swamps and red woods meet. There are tons of other spots and you can find them on YouTube
Now how do you tame a anky?
Well once you have gathered all of your items you will need need to find your anky, shoot it and walk backward while shooting your tranqs. It won’t take very many tranqs, depending on the level. But then its knocked out! Now feed the berries or kibble of your choice and boom! You have a anky!!
My name is Etheral and my last tip was on the Carno!
Find a good level ≥ Trap it (just to be safe) ≥ Knock it out ≥ Place spikes for protection ≥ Fully Starve it ≥ do other things while waiting for it to starve ≥ Chuck narco berries if torpor gets low to slowly increase torpor giving more time for it to starve ≥ once fully starved feed it ≥ watch it insta tame.
