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
Considering taming this mythological beast? I may have a few ideas how! But first off, everything I say in this tip is of course what I recommend, you can tame this however you want! All I can say is good luck! Now where were we? Yes alright let’s start with the supplies one would need to tame this! First a rifle and some darts, this will be a must have, as it does little to no damage with maximum torpor! Pack at least 50 of them (pack more in case you miss) Next consider bringing a net gun! This will be usefull for keeping them in one place for a easy knockout! And finnaly the kibble and narcotics you will need: depending on the server I would recommend bringing 300/200 just to be safe, as well as 3/7 kibble, they like extraordinary kibble! Next is where to find said beasts! They can be found on; crystal isles, the island, fjordur, raganrok, scorched earth, and lost island! Alright the knockout process is fairly simple; step 1 locate a griffin! Step 2, Shoot it with a none torpor inducing weapon to lure it to you! Step 3, Net it! Step4 make it regret coming to you (aka knock it out with ease) Step 5, feed narcotics, and give it the kibble and bam you got a griffin! What are you supposed to do with said griffin? Well here’s some ability’s the griffin uses! First it has a dive witch can be converted into a swift glide, or used as a massive slam into the ground doing surrounding damaged depending on how fast your decent is! Next is this is the ONLY flying tame you are able to shoot from while riding it, making it a solid choice for aerial warfare in pvp! It also has room for 2 passengers! But griffins are made for both the sky and the ground, making them a versatile mount! Hope my info helped!! Good luck out there!
If you find a high level one, see how slow it is. Generally I've noticed Griffins are pretty slow. I tamed one with my Deinonychus using the normal Argie trap. Recommend using prime meat for taming. You don't need a lot and carry extra narcotics because tranq arrows don't work for very long on these guys.
From my experience on console this thing does not have a head shot hit box so prepare for body shots. Also if it is a lower lvl griffin like 55 and below tranq arrows have a very high chance of killing it.
