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.
To tame one of these creatures, you would need berries or crops. The best is just Rockarrot. Approach one with the feeding item on the last item slot. Feed it and ride it. You'll need to press the action button (E for PC players) for everytime they stopped moving or the icon on the right flashes, prompting you to use it.
To get a 100% taming efficiency on this creature, avoid spamming the buttons and carefully timing your action button. Make sure that your surroundings are clear and there are not too many threats. They often run off into random areas that tends to be near a Giga territory.
They often spawn in large open fields so that is best to look for one. Good luck and have a good one.
I would not recommend taming a high lvl. If you have the resources, by no means go ahead and get him but I found out recently that it takes an absolute butt load of Rockarrots (100 for a lvl 95) to tame him. It took a very long time and in the long run, I didn’t even get him. Not to mention, you have to have extreme focus not to let him buck you off and lose taming progress for that long of a time.
