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!
Probably the most versatile land creature. Can eat berries and meat. Hard to tame unless you use DARTS or a SNOW OWL to heal it during tranq arrow-ing it with a x-bow.
Probably best to put HP>Dmg. These things are trucks but don't get to cocky.
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
Step one.get large bear trap
Step two.schoot it with tranq darts till its knocked out
Step three.use honey with smoothing balm
And boom you just got youreself a bear with 1 honey hope this helps all of you good luck
If you have decent armor and decent movement speed, find a hive, grab some honey, drop your butt and run. Tamed a 145 dire bear in no time with just 1 hive. (May have been 2x taming event though) or drop a bed nearby and if you get bee’d to death just spawn back in and grab the honey off your body. I don’t think the bees stay aggro. I wouldn’t use arrows, mr bear got pretty bloody even using darts.
