So iv got 3 equus now but i went though an encounter no one has mentioned. Someone was trying to tame a equus lvl 120 but they messed up a few times and didnt want the equus anymore for the bonus lvls was depleted for the most part and it was taking awhile with carrots. So a friend of mine on the server and i went to go get it and tame it but it wouldnt prompt the e feed or ride. We left and came but still nothing so my idea was force tame it to tranq it. Found out crossbow does to much damage almost killed it so we waited for it to heal and used darts that worked great but took a lot of them. So be aware for ppl on pvp servers they cant steal jump on the equus if you already have the only way for them to take it is to tanq it. Need to do some more testing to see about other methods.
I usually build a simple fence foundation and railing pen to use for passive tames. Then I’ll just take an Argy or a Dino able to carry them and drop them into the pen. That way they cant run half way across the map.
As of 12/23/23 if you are on console trying to tame these in Ark Ascended it’s bugged. During the taming process when you get prompted to feed the button to do so on console doesn’t work it’ll just buck you or you dismount it.
When you try to tame these guys, go up to the back and bring at least 2 stacks of mejoberries. Also if you see one near an allo just get away from it, it has a 0% chance of living. Hope this helped and thanks for having the time to read my tip
This stinking thing!!! So annoying!!! I was taming it on a cliff and I was a bit slow and it knocked me off. RIGHT INTO A SWAMP. I swear, while everything was eating me, sarcophagus, titanoboa and mega parana, I saw it laughing at me.
