How do I tame a griffin? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a griffin.
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
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
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!
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.
For a trap go look up Captain Fatdog on YouTube, it’s a really cheap trap and it works!
General Argentavis taming pens will work, it is a knockout game that is not narcotic heavy. Will require quite a lot of tranqs. Have fun taming it everyone!
I tamed one by cageing myself and hitting it with my fist
Just build a 2x4 or 2x6 pen with a dino gate on one side, placing stone pillars on the outer edges all along it. Make it near the green obelisk! Then fly the griffin into it thru the door with a pteranodon, fly out thru other end thru the pillars, land your mount, run to the other side, close the door, boom. Trapped griffin. Then tame with roughly 150 tranq arrows. Use mutton or prime meat as they are easiest to come by.
Please stop saying allo kibble or name requirements here. This is a PC Griffin page and I have been confused cause of this. Please restrict that to royal griffin page. Also this is a regular knockout tame, just use the 4 dinosaur gateways with 2 gates and u are good.
You find them at 22,44 in ragnorak by the mountains and forests
How to tame a Griffin:
1. Find a flat area for the trap.
2. Set up 6 Stone Dinosaur Gateframes in a row with a Reinforced Dinosaur Gate on the 1st and the 6th Gateframe.
3. Make the Griffin follow you by either coming near it or shooting at it.
4. Make it follow you inside the trap and quickly run out and close the Gate.
5. Shoot the Griffin with Tranq Darts (Arrows are only going to kill it).
6. Feed the beast meat.
And you tamed a Griffin. It doesn't require a saddle so you can use it instantly after taming it.
I'll use a tranq dart or two to get their attention and to lure them to a place I can build.
When I stop and turn to face them, I will use the harpoon gun/net projectile to drop them at my feet.
Then I'll put a 3 to 5 dino gate trap around them, with a door on each of the outer gates.
Then I start shooting tranqs at them and don't have to worry about roaming random dinos or argies killing them while I'm taming.
*Bonus: since I can use an exo mek, I pick up my trap when I'm done.
Starve timer is waaaaaaaayyyy off.
You have to use a net or it will fly away
I have a way that doesn’t require dino gates but does require something else: Get 10 stone pillars, one stone ceiling, a stone stair, a flyer (pteranodon is preferable), darts and meat. Set 5 pillars in a U shape and double stack them and put ceiling on middle pillar. Lure Griffin into trap and place a stone stair behind so can’t move. Dart it and BOOM! You got a Griffin!
Actually pretty nice and easy tame! (If ya know what your doing and have the requirements but what dinosaur do you not have to plan to catch??) so just search up ‘cheapest griffin taming’ on YouTube and boom griffin. Also making them breedable please imagine a baby griffin 🤭🥰!!!
Pretty stupid if I am being honest. These things are really dumb and pathetic. They take literally hundreds of tranqs. Don’t waste your time on these worthless things. Get a pterodon instead because their attack is spot on and they are faster. And also guess what, you can bola said pterodon AND knock it out with a fist! WOW I know! Also Griffins are disappointing. They make look so fast and cool, BUT they are really slow, slower than a peleganornis, they waste your time, and 100% of the time you will die or you will kill it trying to tame it.
