Can craft Lassos in Equus's inventory which can be used to reposition smaller conscious and unconscious tames into your base. Just target the KO'd Dino and ride it back to safety. Also acts as a mobile mortar and pestle.
Equus's also has a very high melee torpor modifier on right click attacks, seems to be 3-5x listed damage as torpor. A mate boosted and melee leveled Equus's can KO targets extremely quickly. I keep a male and female near my taking pen at all times.
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.
