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
This creature is so easy to tame. All you need is:
1. An Ichthyosaurus(these guy won't be attack by any water creature, except the jellyfish)
2. Anykind of meat(I suggest using prime meat and don't use fish meat)
3. Find one of these creature
4. Feed it prime meat(It's a long time between the 1st and the 2nd feed, after the 2nd feed it's fast)
And then you get one of these, just be careful of the megalodons, they will attack right after it is tamed. I hope this is useful for you<3
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
Hope this was helpful :)
Use a bary to get rid of the mantas, just shoot one with a crossbow from a distance to aggro them all and you can just stun them and kill them, easiest way to get rid of the mantas, got one tamed without scuba gear
I found that you can use sarcos or itchys to tame these creatures just hit one of the rays and lure them away then after the very long first to second feeding after that it takes like 15 seconds to feed again
Do think of a solid strategy of killing mantas and maybe eels before attempting to tame it. I lost 6 sharks 1 spino 3 dolphins trying to tame it.... Not at the same time tho. If I had gathered all the battle forces it could have worked
I don’t know what everyone else did but In my experience the Icythaurus or whatever the dolphin is called, still gets attacked. Everything is chasing me on it. Sure I can out run everything but the tips here made it sound like you would get ignored.
Also, someone said you could tame it from the saddle you can’t you have to dismount.
Now this is all PS4.
So best bet is to have 2 - 3 people 1 to feed and the others to agro and lure away the mantas and megs.
Icys are fastest in my experience. So best bet to bait away and dart in and out.
For the people who are having a really hard time taming this creature and it’s tame bar resetting when that happens I recommend using some prime meat and kibble anything that can make the taming percentage high I used a smoothing balm 10x in ark mobile got a 10x taming boost I just fed the basilosaures 1thrizinosaures egg kibble and it was tamed
Tame a baryonyx and move close to a basilo with mantas around it. Don't attack but let them aggro on you move away from basilo and tail stun/attack mantas till they are gone. Feed prime meat or mutton and wait forever for second feeding. Once it is hungry again it is only a few seconds between the remaining feedings but it can be 15 minutes between 1st and 2nd.
