just tamed one about level 15 or something with around 20 cooked prime meat, you can find a few around the little island in the south-east corner of the map. they'll usually have a few ichthy and mantas following them, the mantas will all attack you when you feed it, and once you kill them be careful to not accidentally feed your meat to one of the ichthy instead. the maximum depth the basil swims to is about the maximum depth you can safely swim to without drowning, you can swim down by yourself with no mount or scuba gear, feed the basil once with half air left, then swim up and breath right when you're about to start drowning. it's pretty terrifying. please bring a mount that swims faster than you or scuba gear or level up your air or something. don't tame with regular meat or fish if you're trying to tame the stupid way like i did, but if you want to tame it with lots of meat or fish make sure you can stay down there for longer.
This was my 2nd water (as in ocean since I have 8 kapros) tame ever I have 2 of these for me it was easy to tame I grabbed my dolphin and went looking once I found one a swam close and fed it raw meat the mantas did absolutely nothing I ended up with2 of these.
Okay, so I saw one in a river opening on Crystal Isles. I thought the mantas attack you as soon as you go near. So I slowly approached the tail near the river bank. The mantas didn’t agro on me, I thought I was just far enough away. No. Oh no no no noooo. It turns out the mantas ATTACK the second you feed it. Please don’t do what I did haha
A living oil mine and immune to jellyfish and someone who likes to ignore the hug of the Tuso . Yup definitely worth taming and for some of you who don’t know how to tame this kind of Dino then this is how you do it
Step 1: put the item you will use to tame in your hot bar
Step 2: get close to the Dino then tap the item to feed it then keep feeding it until it tame up
I am telling process because I had problems passive taming when I was a beginner
Useless if under lvl 100 no weight health or melee if 115 or above u can get more bang for ur buck. I use mine for cave run on multi maps it’s a must have tame for the water you won’t want anything else just remember their slow but if you can get their speed up to 115 to 125 your good to go. If I had to sum up my experience up in a couple word it would be the king of the sea!
