You can't tame these guys by knocking them out. Instead, you need to steal their fertilised eggs (just like wyverns and rock drakes), hatch them and raise them, just a bit harder than knocking them out. The eggs can, of course, be found in their nests and do be careful while trying to steal one as the Deinonychus is very territorial. Hope this helps :)
Here's how to steal one early game: If you spawn in at chalk hills 3 and spawn next to a pond walk opposite to the pond. There are some nests right there. Snatch one quickly and run off the cliff next to the pond. Be careful and make sure to fall into the water. From there make a left and you should get to a beach area. From there it should be easy to find your base.
1. Tame a kangaroos 2. Have a tribe mate with a whip in the pouch 3. Quickly jump on a nest and have your tribe mate whip the egg into his inventory 4. Jump away! No one has to dismount so there’s basically no risk
Deinonychus eggs can only be gotten like the rock Drake or wyverns, you just steal a fertilized egg from their nest. Normally I would use a snow owl to freeze it while my tribe mate grabs the eggs. Or you can have a gun and a dinosaur with good melee. (The gun to shoot it if it latches on your mount). And kill them and grab the eggs.
For all I know they are only found in the white cliffs in packs. There is a set of ruins with bridges. The nests that I know of are near the bridges guarded by rock elementals as well as the new fluffy raptor
This new guy is pretty much like a raptor. There are 4 imprints 8 hour apart from each other. The egg incubation is 5 hours (like a Wyv). The baby stage is roughly 4 hours and the baby will be a Juvy at 10% (like any normal baby). Be careful though if hatching low level guys as they eat 3 meat per sitting so they go through it fast, and if leaving overnight there is a chance of starvation. Mine was a 140 and it’s food value is 3800. We hatched them Sunday morning at 10:30am (Juvy by 2:30pm) and my final Imprint is Monday evening at 6:30. He is now an Adolecent. Saddles unlock at lvl 32. Hopefully this helps you all because we had to test it in order to get the proper information. (R.I.P Lvl 100). GoodLuck !
They are super easy to get do not fear to just get them right away all you need is a bird. They nest bottom right and they take one standing torch to incubate be ready with food because they get hungry quick when they hatch. They are really fast and i think they might turn around this disgusting mana meta.
Only obtained by searching for eggs, just like wyverns and drakes. Watch out for the pack though. They protect the nest and with their latching and bleeding abilities, they can be quite formidable. Either be quick about sneaking in and grabbing eggs, or kill them all. There is no in between...
My partner and I took our flyers and while one distracted the group by the nest the other collected eggs. No kill no muss no fuss. To hatch just build a fireplace and place eggs near. This was very successfulI in that we had six hatch within 30 game minutes.
