Didn’t see this mentioned so I’ll share so someone else doesn’t panic like I did lol
Always bring some kind of torpor adding substance with you when taming if you don’t have/can’t make the kibble. If you’re taming with crops or berries, you’ll have to add narcotics or narcoberries etc to keep them out because their torpor drains faster than the time they’ll be tamed in. :) I’ve gotten a couple during the summer event now both under level 100 for the neat colors and used over 200 narcotic between the two? 🥴 Don’t remember the first, but used 110 on the level 70 I just tamed while writing this & had 97.5% taming effectiveness. ^_^b
Not sure why everyone discourages taming. I'm pretty sure the game replenishes their numbers every time the server goes through a wild dino wipe, and these little guys are really handy to have around for what little space they require.
The method I used to tame was picking up the beaver with my crystal wyvern and dropping it in a taming pen. Pretty easy knockouts but their torpor drop rate is INSANITY and you can't leave then for more than 3 minutes. Feed them either mejoberries or crops (kibble is really expensive but if you want to do that, go for it).
