Ride dolphin or manta, water creature won't attack you while riding a water dino, then go near basilo feed it, Don't unride or you'll see your self dying, put food on your hot bar then click it when near basilo u can feed basilo without unriding. Up! So no noobs will be eaten by manta or megalodon lol
Basilosaurus are found in the oceans surrounding herbivore Island
Basilosaurus are passive tames that arent aggressive towards you at all and they are carnivores so feed them meat.
Basilosaurus are surrounded by mantas and they will attack you when you feed or attack the Basilosaurus, there are plesiosaurs,megalodons,leedsicthis and tusothuthis where the Basilosaurus are,
Basilosaurus are slow so you're underwater mount can keep up with it.
Abilities when tamed:
Basilosaurus are immune to jellyfish stings and eel shocks and cannot be grabbed by squid, they produce oil in there inventory but it spoils, they regenerate health fast near the surrface, they can shoot rainbows out of their blowhole using one of their attacks
Disabilities when tamed:
Basilosaurus lose health when they are in deep water
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
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.
HUGE TIP: Have a sinomacrops on your back when taming these. Auto scream on. The sinomacrops will SCARE OFF THE MANTAS! Time your feeds with the scream cooldown. You can probably get 2 feeds per scream after the first feed. Just make sure they’re gone or you have a raft close. If you have a raft close you can just fly straight out of the water by bumping into your raft and holding x. ^^^
