Be warned these animals are very low on health so use traq darts not arrows. Also try to try to drag them out of the swamp because it's so hard to protect them. Best recommendation is that you bring at least 2000 narcos and you knock it out while having an ally tribe guard you so they don't do damage to your tame. Beware these need to have all eyes on them if you forget or have a moment of hesitation they will wake up and you will waste your expensive quetz kibble. Lower levels are better to tame for eggs cost less kibble but, higher levels are sometimes needed but will cost you dearly if you forget them. Good luck guys and watch your backs in the swamp.
Use narcoberries instead of narcotics. This is very important when taming an animal with high torpor drain. The narcoberries take longer for the torpor to rise, and narcotics take a smaller amount of time to rise. This is useful for a dimetrodon tame because narcotics will not last as long as the narcoberries and you want to have the torpor rising for as long as you can.
These creatures needs alot of narcotics. When knocked out, wait for the torpor to drop. Then force feed narc (1 narc = 40 torpor). The torpor meter will slowly rise and give you time to do other things.
Also remember they need natural water in order to lay eggs. They cannot drown after a patch i belive
Torpor runs out in a minute. Try to wait until just before it wakes up to use all the narcotics needed to get it back to fill torpor. You can the. Relax until the torpor goes back to full. Then it quickly depletes again. Repeat. Starve before you use kibble as its expensive kibble...
These guys have Low health, Be careful if you’re taming it with arrows. You can kill it very easily, when shooting with arrows wait about 10 seconds and then shoot another one. I used tranq darts with a Mastercraft Longneck. Also, Their torpor drops SO QUICK, LIKE A FREAKING GIGANOTOSAURUS! BRING A BUNCH OF BIOTOXIN OR NARCOTICS WITH YOU, NARCOBERRIES WONT CUT IT!
Do not pause between shots instead shoot the required amount of arrows/darts and wait for it to drop. Make sure you have plenty of narcotics as the torpor on these creatures will drop in the blink of an eye. Can be tamed solo but only with kibble due to the torpor time and can also be carried by a Quetzal if you prefer a taming pen.
NEVER FORGET you’ re taming a tiny giganotosaurus . Its torpor falls extremely fast . NEVER use narcoberries,always use bio toxins...Never try to tame lvl 29 or higher lvl dimetrodons.Because you can kill it before knocking out.
Prim+ players!!! I struggled with these until I saw someone else here mention to use a HARPOON GUN and tranq bolts... literally a life saver. I've killed so many before trying bolts. 150 went down still with half his health. Pop yurts down face to face with you and dimet inside then do a little dance around while shooting it in the back (back fin works. Big target) boom. Down. Great idea I love it. Expensive but worth it.
If they wake up after knockout, their food continues to drain. To be more resource efficient when taming, get one trapped, knock it out, set your starve timer, then let it wake up instead of dumping narcotics into it. You can then knock it out for the second time and get an instant tame!
