just grow rockarrots. I took about 100 from a large crop box and hopped on my flying mount to search for a high lvl one. it was easy leading it back as well considering it was only 3km away. leave the turtles in the past and keep a stock farm of crops and narcoberries.
Don’t know if this helps but there’s unlike the others in western zone a 3.000 percent chance of finding a Eques if I spelled it right and that’s 3% if you didnt know and like a 25% chance in the island 70% in south zone The island 0.0001% in red woods hope it helped?!!!
You can feed it then use a bola (which doesn’t lower effectiveness) and after that use fence foundations and walls to keep it in place and ride it for the duration of the tame. No need for it to run around randomly.
