i’m a lazy guy, and i don’t usually use traps when i tame things, other than BIG things like a reaper queen or a giga, but THIS IS THE EXCEPTION. unless your dad is apollo, it is impossible to knock one of these guys out without using a trap, for my case anyway. they are ridiculously fast, and they will circle you and attack you. however, the griffin is worth the trouble. it’s one of the fastest fliers, does devastating damage compared to other fliers, other than your typical high-level argy, doesnt need a saddle to ride, can fit two people, and not to mention it looks amazing. however, it can’t pick up many things, it can only pick up smaller creatures. if you carry cryopods around with you though, this shouldn’t be a problem. up this if you found this helpful! -J
Requirements: 4 stone Dino gateways - 2 reinforced Dino gates - 1 net gun and some ammo for it - crossbow or rifle - tranq arrows or tranq darts -
First, you must make a stone trap, I recommend getting four stone Dino gateways and two reinforced gates, this way you can reuse the trap to tame other griffins. This will require around 1,200 stone I think 400~ thatch (maybe) and about 650 wood (approx). I recommend getting a large tame with good weight and using a metal axe and pick instead of using a Dino to harvest :)
Now, you must find a griffin, they usually spawn in either the mountain plain areas on most maps (that they are on) or winter biomes.
Once you find a griffin, make sure there aren’t any other creatures around that could kill you or the griffin.
Now, run up to the griffin and use the net gun to trap it. Place the Dino gateways in a line, make sure the gaps aren’t to big. Place the doors at both sides of the trap, make sure they’re closed ofc.
Now, you can use tranq darts or tranq arrows (with crossbow). Wait a few good seconds before shooting again with the crossbow though, or you may kill it.
Shove some meat in its inventory and you have a griffin! I recommend going to the info section for the best food to get!
warning: if you're playing on ragnarok, make sure you don't go too far from it, and come prepared with some kibble or mutton, i was taming one in the canyon part, then i realized i needed some narcotics (btw my base was on the other side of the map),, long story short i went to my base and got the sleeping medicine, and when i get back thanks to the tracker, and as soon as i get there the griffin was inside the ground,then i decided to be stupid and dismount my flying creature and get killed by a sarco and the alpha raptor that was behind him, AGAIN make sure you come prepared and with food so you don't suffer the same i did
