The easiest way is to make a small taming boat with a ramp head out let it chase you yp the ramp open the door and bam just hit it with narco arrows every 6 seconds and its out then. Starve it till 50 or 100.
But as for keeping yourself safe just go to an edge of the map and tame it with meat or if u have the kibble inwhich case u should have a farm boat that looks like its been raided but not really
How to tame: Find a low level one. And lead it away from it pack. (This will really only work on scorched earth because they either travel in very small packs, or sometimes solo. The most I have yet seen them in is a pack of three.) Bola it. Then shoot tranqs into face. (Or boomerang) Once it is knocked out, place plant species Y all around it so u won’t be killed if it’s pack comes back or a hostile animal comes by. I recommend starve taking them because you xD n then tame them with regular meat. Hope this helps!
If knocking these things out and you run out of arrows/ darts, don’t worry. It takes about five seconds for a there torpor to be in full effect. So if you hit a dire wolf, the tranq dart torpor would only be 1/5 of the way into the dire wolf. HIT UR HEADSHOTS!!!
I think this creatures are too strong... my friend and me see a group of wolfs (we play on ps4) one lvl 140 another lvl 145 (on ps4 is max level of wild dinos 150) we bola all of the 4 wolfs, kill the lowlevels and tame the good ones. After tame we have a women and a men of wolfs (lvl210 and lvl214) and without more skilling they make 654 damage!!!!!! I think the Direwolfs must be not bolable. they opopopopop fithing dinos and very easy to tame. i hope you learn about this tipp and rate 🔼 this to other players see this (we have over 6 wolfs (breeded) and he are verrry strong) (tip: tame so many you can)
