Almost tamed a lvl140 in redwoods but a lvl 15 carno came out of nowhere and killed it in 2 hits. It was at a 95% tame, took an hour and a half. 🙃 If you are taming a dino in redwoods wipe every other creature in redwoods off the face of the earth!
If you guys are wanting to have a really strong tank of a Dino, then definitely get a direbear. I have a level 67 bear and she is an absolute unit!!! She has 2,064 hp and she has over 300% melee damage, and she is my beloved baby. I have found a max level male bear in the redwoods and he’s beautiful; black on top and white on bottom. I am really wanting to breed them…but I’m worried about what things it’ll need though. So I gotta hope and pray that it doesn’t want something crazy. Wish me the best of luck everyone!!!
These things are absolute beasts, they do insane damage, grind like a boss, and gain momentum while sprinting, to tame these, get a mount which allows rider weaponry and invest decent amount of health in it. Then let it aggro on you and start tranquilizing them ( rifle advised since x-bow may kill it ).
Its torpor run isn't that annoying so just knock it, feed it, then wreck the island's almost every bit( gigas and titans are exceptions ). Up if this helped.
these guys are one of the best mounts in the game, but don't get fooled, taming one is harder than it looks. they spawn in places where big & small predators are common. it's kinda like taming a Kapro but to a lesser degree, the creature itself is not hard to tame if you are prepared, the hard part is defending yourself and the unconscious creature from other dangerous/annoying creatures.
To tame a lvl 100+ you cannot use tranq arrows as it'll die but still the torpor will not increase fully... you need a lot of tranq darts...say like 50 for a lvl 120 bear... need a soothing balm and some prime or raw meat... I will suggest to put 3 stone pillars on each other and add wooden ladders... lure the bear (or you can also make the structure near the bear, as it only agros if you go too close to it) and get on the pillars...start shooting...This part is easy, but the knockout part is tricky, cuz the bear will run when it's torpor is high and believe me it runs really fast, make sure you don't lose it and keep shooting tranq darts...also make sure you have already killed any carnos and terror birds around...
But all your hardwork will pay...
I have a lvl 200 bear and i wiped the entire population of redwood. :)
To make honey last practically forever, make a fishing rod and equip honey, that is about to spoil, to the fishing rod, then un-equip it. It should refresh the spoil timer. Does not work with leech blood. Tested on PS4.
