Update 1: With the addition of the dossier, we now have a better idea of how this thing will be tamed. It appears to be a mix of a “heavy” knockout tame (think kark, titano, rock golem) and a “riding” tame (like equus and ESPECIALLY voidwyrm). The dossier states that you must “soften it up with explosives,” before hopping on and steering it into a rock. Based on this, it appears that the taming process involves using explosive weapons to damage it to a certain threshold, allowing us to hop on its back and ride it for some time. We will then have to seek out a solid obstacle (like the aforementioned rock) to crash it into, likely inflicting torpor on it (it’s immune or heavily resistant to tranqs from what the dossier says). This process will likely have to be repeated until the big gator is downed, at which point it will likely be the standard “feed while it’s down” process. The dossier makes no mention about sacrificing armored tames to it, so this part of the original concept was likely scrapped.
Thank you for reading! Keep in mind that this probably won’t be entirely accurate to its actual release, but it should give a general idea on what to expect.
Seen a few people question the taming process, no it shouldn’t be as bad as the carchar you have to use explosives to knock it out or weaken it or whatever, then you have to ride it and make it crash into a rock. It sounds fun to me
Not sure how it will be ingame yet, but according to the submission, it will live in Scorched Earth (and likely desert regions of other maps) and be similar to the bloodstalker in terms of sacrificing tames for effectiveness. The fasolasuchus takes great joy in crunching up armored creatures, so you must sacrifice tames such as carbonemys, stego, kentro (the fasola won’t be damaged) and rock elemental (it’s the most effective). It will be waiting with its jaws open in the sand, so send your tame over and watch it get thrashed. You get more effectiveness for more durable creatures, so investing health points and strong saddles will help. You can sacrifice more creatures for better taming effectiveness. Once you’re happy with the taming effectiveness, simply knock it out and feed (I’m assuming it won’t lose effectiveness when being tranqed). Thank you for reading 😁
I can’t wait for this to come to ASA. Btw I think the fasola is ASA exclusive so I don’t think it will come into ASE or so I heard (ASA = ark survival ascended and ASE = ark survival evolved) Hope you are all excited too.
