So legitimately honey pacifies this whale. If you have a raft base or something and you have honey to spare you can throw honey into the water and it will stop attacking you. Check the wiki if you don’t believe me. Make sure other people see this
In this tutorial I will Show you how to easily trap a Leedsichthy.
Before I start with the tutorial i want to say that there are 2 ways to trap him. The 1st way is that you build a giant square inside the water where he can fit in and the 2nd war is that you leed him inside the "river" of the Red Obelisk and close both entrys to the river. Just follow those steps:
1) surch for a Leedsichthy and remember where he is (they often spawn near Herbivore Island)
2) Go to the Bottom of the ocean and surch for a Ammonite. When you find one let him bite you.
3) go to the leedsichthy and lead him inside your giant square or the river of the Red obelisk and close up all entrys.
4) kill all fishes except the Leedsichthy
5) Enjoy scrabing of his prime fish meat (he wont get aggro as long as you dont hit him)
The leedsichthys is the one of the largest sea creatures out there and takes pride in destroying or damaging player created rafts. However the leedsichthys can also be interacted with and used as a fish meat farm as it overtime generates fish meat that can be collected on the outside of its body, therefore making it useful to keep them in a water pen if tribes wish to store fish meat. If a albino leedsichthys is found and killed the player that killed the beast will revive item skins.
Interestingly, the Leedsichthys in the dev kit had a knock out animation with a knocked out eating animation. There was also a successful tame animation and a failed tame animation. This strongly implies that the Leedsichthys was tameable at first and explains why when forcetamed, it can be ridden.
My entire life was on my raft. It came out of nowhere. The only reason I made it to shallow water, is because I went in a tight circle around it and it missed one of its attacks. That one extra attack would've destroyed everything and sent me back to square one. Do what I did but better and you will also survive.
