More Griffin Taming & KO Tips
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
You need to use TRANQ DARTS after the griffin nerf.
Like if they should stop being so stubborn when you try to fly them in a trap
Make a tunnel out of dino gates with enough space for you to fit through sides, and put doors only on ends. close one door and lure it to door and stop just outside of doorway since they never stop flying forward, they will run all the way to end of tunnel and you can shut other door and start shooting through the sides.
The easiest way to tame a griffin 😌.
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!
EASY way to TAME. Use harpoon gun and net projectile.
Tranq with Tranquilizer darts or better shocking darts.
It really works. Mutton or Prime meat.
Hi, I’m Apollo. Probably not the Apollo in the previous tip but maybe. I just want to say, if you don’t trap this thing, it’s going to get away. No matter what you do, if you don’t trap it, it’s going to fly away and leave you in its dust.
You CAN tame them with a crossbow.
Wait 5-7 seconds between shots and there is no way you will kill it. Torpor raises over time, arrows/darts are not instant.
You do not "have to have" tanq darts.
You do not need a saddle for griffins
They can fly through open stone dino gates so build a taming pin with that in mind to make it easier to tame otherwise you will be chasing it down alot.
