If your on ark mobile grab a crossbow (a good one) a good underwater tame and the scuba set so you don't drown.i finnaly tamed a plesi with this method and now it's time for taming the dunki (I am coming armoured shark)
It is very easy to tame one of these, all you will need is an icthy and some tranq arrows, crossbow(depends what crossbow is it like ascendant doesn’t have to be) Mostly all sea creatures don’t agro on you while your on your icthy so this makes you able to shoot of your icthy. This method can be used for any tame in the ocean.
on 5x taming server, spot a lvl 25 x-dunkleoteus, set up a trap with 24 stone pillar and 9 stone ceiling, spent 10 minutes to lure it into the trap. then pull out my 154% crossbow, sending 100+ tranq arrows....and kill it. yet sacrificing my lvl 133 dolphin to the eels and megalodon😑
This is like the Argy of the sea. It can hold an outstanding amount of weight and can do a lot of damage. Only issue I have with it is the speed and stamina so focus your level ups on those. Also, bring a lot of tranqs since it took me 175 arrows for a level 125 (don’t aim for the head).
taming a X dunkleosteus is so much harder than taming a normal one. It takes more arrows to knock it down and you will probably kill it before you can knock it down. And yet you have to deal with those stupid eels and megalodons. Be sure set up a trap and bring your friends to deal with those eels and megalodons. Solo tame is ill advised imo. And do not ride basilisaurus when you try to lure it to the trap, for some reason dunkly is afraid of the basil and it will run away from you. A ichthy is a better choice, dunkly will chase you as well as those eels, thats why a friends is needed.
OR just use command "dotame" to save your time and your dolphine.
Very hard to get it to chase you, so you’ll have to chase it. An ichthyosaurus is best because it’s fast and you can shoot from the back of it. Though, I would recommend bring a basi for protection from eels, megs, and jellies, just to be safe. The dunky is slow but it can go far.
Also, don’t take your eyes off of it for too long or you’ll never find it again.
If trying to tame one make like a wyvern trap on the bottom on the ocean and hive someone else shut it. I use a sarco to lead it in the trap. On the center you can make the trap right next to the air bubble to escaped in the Airr away from any attack range and have a keypad to shut it. This will allow you to use any tranq attack
Patrol your coastlines .. you sometims get them on the beaches and make easy tames, throw 3 gates around them and stand on a wyvern and dart it ... Take plenty of darts if you that lucky.. 4exceptional kibble and the jobs done 242 dunkly with very little work .. happy hunting
How should I handle these guys on gen2? To tame these guys is simple, it’s a normal knockout tame but in the water, they are the best for begging (because unlike the basilosaurus they don’t have swarms of many’s attacking them.) they gather resources and a decent leveled one can mostly survive the taming process for a tusotuethes, although I am having trouble taming them in genisis 2
