Don't Listen to people who say that they are waste of time. If are probably used they will be the best early game dino ever and in taming you just have to complete hunt Megapirana task and you will get a 10X smoothing balm and then gather 8 to 10 bushes and you will get 2 carrots then just go and tame it.
BEST THINGS ABOUT THEM IS THAT THEY DO A CONTINUOUS TORPOR DAMAGE WITH THEIR KICK NOT LIKE OTHER CREATURES LIKE PACHY AND SCORPION. AND YOU AND EASILY MAKE NARCOTICS IN THEM SO THEY ARE VERY GOOD FOR TAMING.
Since I haven’t seen anyone say this, equus have six ‘classes’ based off of their power on mobile. If it’s power is 1.99 or less its in the lazy ‘class’, if it’s power is 2-3.09 it’s in the ‘normal’ class and will not have a special name when born, if it’s power is 3.10-4.50 it’s in the ‘swift’ class, if it’s power is 4.51-6.64 it’s in the ‘maiden’ class, if it’s power is 6.65-13.32 it’s in the ‘racing’ class, and finally, if it’s power is 13.33 above it’s in the ‘thoroughbred’ role. This is a good way to get a guess on a babies power when it’s born.
These things are honestly the best taming creature. Put alot of levels into DMG and theyre knock-out torpidity increases alot. Its not the fastest method, but its the cheapest. I have knocked out 80% of my tames with a lvl288 equus, fast and easy, and super cheap!
These guys are good starter tames in ark because you dont need a saddle to ride 1 also if it's a high level like level 100 tame it they have good hp, weight, stamina etc. Also if you encumbered you can ride this guy and put your stuff I'm him
These are great to tame. Their a bit hard though because their sensitive. I use the Equus and Unicorn a lot. Gathering but mostly taming. I've tamed T-rexes, Brontos, Thylas and more with them. Just level up the heath, stamina, movement speed, and melee a bit and... There ya go! Perfect taming mount. :)
