Make sure that you do not have your spyglass in your hand when hopping on the Equus. If you do, it will make you auto-look through it and you won't be able to put it away. You won't be able to see the feed prompt and will be kicked off. This just happened to me on a 150 Day is during x2 -_- Please upvote so our fellow survivors know!
PRESS THE SAME BUTTON TO FEED AS YOU DO TO MOUNT, and feed him as soon as you mount! For me on Xbox, it's Y. Then press again all times he tries to buck you off. Lost a unicorn because I didn't know what button would feed him, I thought the mounting button would make me dismount.
The Equus is so majestic, any wild dinosaur crossing your path will become instantly hypnotized as you ride into the sunset like Clint Eastwood. Also, you don't tame the Equus, the Equus tames you if you are worthy enough.
These things are amazing for taming!!!
First they knock things out
Second they gather berries ( for taming and narcotics)
Third they can craft narcotics
And finally they can drag live or unconcous dinos. ; )
When the mounted Equis takes damage there is a chance that the taming progress will be reset.
Getting the Equis trapped in my quetzal's hit box gradually lowered the taming progress - this did not happen when it got stuck in wild creatures.
Once an Equus is spooked it tends to run forever and not allow it's self to be tamed.
You can ko the Equus for another passive tame attempt when it wakes up.
Equus seems to spook easily at night and spawn mostly during the day.
Put carrots in last slot feed equus once from behind then jump on.. there's a icon on the side of the screen that will light up and let you know when to hit Y on Xbox to feed tame you keep doing that until it's yours simple tame..
If you mess up the tame and get bucked off, when you get back on the taming process becomes harder and requires more carrots. The more times you fall, harder it gets. Get a tribe mate to cover you while taming to keep troodons and the like at bay.
They're usually found along the edge of the desert if you circle it you'll find a few. I tamed two on SE there as compared to the island where I found one and couldn't tame it. The map is wrong about the spawn points js.
Get 70+ carrots on 1x or 40+ on 2 times, very easy on ragnarok as both spawn in highlands. Wait for the blue letters inn bottom right of screen to pop up after you habe mounted ONLY WATCH FOR THE TEXT.not the bucking. Tame 130+ and u cam knock out about 80% of things. (I even buck kicked a quetzal stuck in a rock) and have tamed 3 150 trikes with it. HORSES OP!
