These guys don’t need a saddle for you to ride them! Basically the only reason why you should get the saddle is cuz the saddle has a mortar and pestle in it. So for you low-levels, try to tame one of these as soon as you can. All you need is a few rockcarrots or berries(might take a while using berries) and you have an incredibly useful tame that runs fast and is able to carry a decent weight (somewhere around 350-450 kg).
Whoever said mobiles pursuit was a fraud. It pretty much is, on mobile I think the taming is bugged because the first rockaroot gives about 25 taming, BUT THE NEXT ONES ONLY FILL 5-7% taming. The pursuit claims you need 5, but I ended up using around 30. I would highly recommend taming a trike to harvest a booty load of rockaroots in the jungle, that's what I did. Also don't learn the saddle engram if you do the pursuit because the quest rewards you with a journeyman saddle. Thank you and I hope this was helpful, also thank you to whoever said equus taming was bugged as a warning it really helped
Bola it, make a 1x1 square around it with fence foundations and then place doorframes around the horse. Walk up, feed a carrot, and tame without having to run straight into the mouth of an Allosaur. You’re welcome. :)
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.
These things are SUPER easy to tame and here’s how.
1. Get 10 rock carrots and put them in the last slot of your hotbar
2. Crouch and approach slowly only move closer while it’s looking away.
3. When next to it DONT MOVE and feed it the rock carrot
(May take several carrots on a higher level but normally only 1-2)
Also it will run away after you feed it if it takes more than one carrot. But don’t immediately chase it try to wait and see where it goes. Then repeat instructions 1-3. You can also use a ghillie suit if you have one. Go check out my other tips on the yuty and carno. Hope this helped! -a really cool person
1-Bring at least 50-100 rockcarrots, in case the Equus needed a lot of rockcarrots to tame, or if the rockcarrots spoil.
2-Wear full ghillie armor, and go to an area where Equus are located.
3-Sneak up behind it, don’t get very close or touch it, feed it the rockcarrots.(In Ark Survival Evolved Mobile, don’t mount it, because when you’re mounting it and feed it, the taming goes up by 2%, but feeding it while not mounting it, the taming goes up by 20%).
4-Don’t unlock the Equus saddle engram, the game will reward you with one when you’ve finished the pursuit.
And now… you have an Equus, with it’s saddle! Hope this helped!
(wrote my name this time because there’s so many people copying my exact tip, if it’s for inspiration, I understand).
Was harder to tame than a griffin for me!!! You can’t knock it out and its sooo sensitive… I used a minor balm and about 70 ish carrots because of mishaps in order to tame it and a 2x2 stone structure to contain it because this little stubborn Zebra horse prefers to run into allosauruses than be tamed!!! I also used 16 stone door frames around the base then used my Argy named insomnia (Idk why but it fit) to carry it into the cage which takes a lot of aim and is a challenge on mobile… anyways after 8 dilo kibbles and 70 ish carrots it decided to start losing tame progress as it tamed!!!! So annoying!!! Anyways I did finally tame the little beast! I wish you all luck!!! And recommend you have at least 15 dilo kibble on you or 100-130 carrots because they go bad fast on you to tame this little thing…
Make a trap were ever you want it should be a 2×2 trap so it would not move grab it by using argy or bola it and build the trap surrounding it and now just feed it dont get on it feed it like pacife tame it will increas faster and if you are on mobile just do tame equus porsuit and you get high rank better than wasting engram point
Something with EQUUSES is that they tend to appear in areas by shores and in dangerous areas so when you taming them make sure you have at least 65 rockoroots because some EQUUS take longer or shorter to tame and bola it so it doesn’t jump of a cliff and it hells a lot when you have God Consle because when a dangerous animal comes you can kill it Ty for reading have a good day🥰😁
A great travelling companion on many of the Ark maps. The Equus has a unique taming method, where you must walk up to it, feed it(their preferred food is Rockarrots), and ride it. The horse will attempt to buck you off, but when it does, press the prompted button and you will stay on and increase its taming percentage. You cannot control the horse while you are riding a wild one, so be sure to clear out the area you decide to tame it in.
This can be really easy to tame if u have: major balm for higher lvls, High Lvl Trike, Trap items, And a Flyer with Good Amounts of Speed and Stamina, So What ur gonna do is ride the trike and then go to a near mountain and harvest lots of berries, (i got 38 Carrots from this!) Keep Harvesting until u get A lot of carrots, grab the carrots and major balm, hop on ur flyer and fly around looking for a equus, I find them at swamp and near redwoods, Keep Flying until u find a good lvl Equus, Set up a trap near by, kill any nearby predators, Put the carrots and Major balm in Ur Inventory slot, grab the equus with ur flyer and plop the equus into The Trap, wait a bit for it to calm down and then sneak on up on it while crouching, passive feed it the carrot then quickly mount it, feed it the carrot whenever it says to feed it, feed it the balm too! U passive feed it the balm, Wait a bit of feeding and bam u have a equus! Hope this helped^^
These things are a must have for every level!!! I know everyone says this about everything but I mean it. I cannot stress about how good they are. They are great at knock outs with their back attack and can easily knock out a carno before it can really deal damage. But you do need a lot of carrots, but it’s worth it. Keep in mind that if you tap the carrots when it isn’t hungry it will dismount you and run away and you will lose taming progress. Make sure the area is clear because it when you are mounted it doesn’t do anything if it is attacked and just dies.
