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.
Taming this bear can be fairly low stress depending on how safe the area is and how prepared you are. I would recommend bringing a cross bow with narcotic arrows, and a LARGE BEAR TRAP. I was able to tame one by placing a large bear trap in front of me, and shooting the bear from a distance until it got stuck in the trap. Make sure you keep shooting the bear with narcotic arrows as it approaches as it does take a little to knock it out, and they can break free from the trap, mine broke free from the trap before it fell unconscious. I would advise to place another trap either infront or directly behind the bear, as they tend to run away once they have been hit with about half the arrows they need to fall unconscious. Unless you want the extra levels, you don't necessarily need kibble, mutton, or prime, as I tamed a level 30 with around 10 pieces of raw meat. Honey is by far the best taming food, but chances are, your taming the beat so you can get the honey
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.
