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.
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.
Direbear have little health compared to torpor. Keep a few tamed dodos at your ramp trap. When you've shot the bear enough for it to be bloody, throw in a dodo. It will instantly kill and eat it and start regenerating health. Give it a moment or two and continue darting. Happy hunting!
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. :)
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 reduce chance of killing it while trying to knock it out is by shooting with a primitive crossbow without delay until it starts to show blood then switch to a regular bow and then space shots 7 seconds apart - works every time for me no matter the level
DONT SHOOT UNTIL IT FALLS!!! Take a careful watch over it’s health and, when it is low STOP shooting. Check the top or number with the telescope, it will continue to increase. Shoot it again only when the meter begins to go down and keep measuring until asleep.
