You can use this big ass moth as a lift truck inside your base since it can fit through double doors and is very easy to manoeuvre in closed spaces, unlike the Ptera. You can easily move thousands of metal ingots from and Industrial Forge to a Fabri, or loads of stone from a Doed to a Chen bench, etc etc. Its starting weight is quite shitty but you can allocate every single level on it since it’s the only thing you need. This role works particularly well on unofficial servers in where the weight stat is boosted.
For an easy tame, wait for the Lymantria to land and then place a tent directly where he/she is at. Its stuck until the tents durability dies out, this gives you enough to build a little house around it for a safe, easy tame.
If you cannot make a tent you can bola it, then place a wooden pillar basically in the middle of it. Then you put a thatch roof on the pillar and surround it by thatch door frames. It will be trapped and you can shoot it without it getting away.
The Lymantria is like the Pteranodon on The Island, but it takes way more torpor then the Pteranodon. So easy taming is bola them (or wait until its landing) and place a tent on it ( DONT place the door of the tent in line to the head of the moth! It can really easy escape then. I hope I helped some of u Guys. Sry for my bad English btw.
Sounds unlikely but quite true...I own a high level moth with beautiful scarlet wings. It was following me set to attack target when I encountered 3 raptors & a carno. While I was piking the rappies to death my lymantria actually killed that carno plus harvested its meat & hide. AWESOME little beast❗
I tamed the lymantria in early game valguero and it was actually quite easy. All you need to do is use a bola (I used a normal one) and then keep attacking it with a club and it should get knocked out in couple of hits. However, if your trying to tame a higher level one, bring multiple bolas. The saddle is quite cheap so it can be utilised early game.
With teamwork, it can be used to help tame other animals. One team member on Lymantria, the other ones shooting tranq. The slow effect is 90%, therefore, plenty to slow down any creature enough for a person to type it while shooting tranq shots.
Best place to tame them is the Dragon cave at Floating Islands on Crystal Isles. Just tamed 3 150s stuck in the nooks and crannys. Bring bolas to ensure the snare. Will always break out of the first bola regardless of what tranqs you use (best results come from darts as they're more delicate than arrows) so be prepared to either shoot it again if it gets stuck or bola it if it starts to flee!
Had a lvl 95 with 800+ health and a lvl 10 poison wyvern attacked and the moth was going to town, it didnt kill tge wyvern but it put up a hell of a distraction for me and my boys to get the stuff to kill it .......worth the tame tbh
