Argy is one of the best tools to acquire in ark. And will make your taming and overall base work easier.
So you have a Argy area close by. How to get it without dying? There is a few ways but simplest is doing a pen. This pen can be used on other big flyers so recommend to built this where you have a mix of flyers around.
It's basically a 6*2 pen. And to be able to fit let's say a griffin as well make it 4 high as well. Double door frames or doorframe to make the walls. Out dino gates in both ends. But in the middle you put a two doorframe high wall as well. This stops at least the griff and an Argy if he flies low enough. You can set one more and just remove it if you going for something else.
Anyway once set you use a Pteradon, make the Argy fallow you. Fly in and close gates. Sometimes it can take a few tries but it's just how it is. And tada, there is your new best buddy.
To tame one easy all you have to do is kill something so the argent Avis can eat, and while it’s healing you must knock it out with tranq arrows or darts. If it is knocked out while healing it’ll starve immediately and it’ll tame in seconds no matter what level!
I tamed a level 20 by accidentally starve taming it. I had shot it with all the tranqs needed, but I was running, so by the time it went out it was on top of a big rock, forcing me to build a that structure and a ton of ladder up to it. Lol it tamed real fast once I got to it because I had a vulture filled with mutton on follow.
Jack of all trades really just depends what you want and how you build them. A bird for battle? You got it! Perhaps a super high stamina and weight to carry your anky or just be a mobile flying storage box/smithy with talons. Easy to tame 4 wooden dine gateways 2 doors, even a max lvl ain't breaking that. Just make sure you line the doorways up right and keep enough space to run out the side after closing the door but not enough for it to escape.
I was taming one of these and a pack of hienadons came running at me. So I led them to a stego waited till they were close and punched the stego. The stego hit them and the two started fighting, so I went back to my argent and finished taming it.
How to Tame an Argy (In or near Artic): First knock it out. Once knocked out, make sure the area is safe and it will not be eaten while unconscious. Then go find some Kaikrus (the penguins) kill there babies and get a ton of prime. Return and feed to you argy. Enjoy!
