These guys seem useless at first, but are great tames! They’re found on two maps, in one biome for each map. They’re found on gen 2 and lost island, eden biome on gen 2 and on lost island, the grass platoi areas.
They lay eggs of different qualities, from basic to exceptional! This allows for great and easy taming! They are also the first genderless BUT breed-able creatures, thus being extremely unique! They are mammals, thus they breed with a gestation period after the breeding! They are great tames and can be used for many things! They are the fastest creature you can get on lost island, making it easy to get wyvern eggs if the wyverns are distracted! The taming is pretty simple thankfully! Best way to tame them, is by netting them and then building a trap around them, then nocking them out. They’re saddle is easy to craft and unlocked early, thus this can be a very good early tame! To end this of, I’d like to tell you all that this creature is based of a flying squirrel and a platypus! For now, hope your ride with the colony ship stays steady! And remember! Keep surviving! And for one of these touching on the other genesis creatures, just let me know, by taking this to ten ups!
How to tame on fjorder! (Bc that’s the map I’m on♥️)
items needed: Net gun, Net projectile, Kibble/Berries/Meat and a good Dino for protection (Thylacoleo spawn near and by the Maewing spawn area)
1. There located in the redwoods, North East, Top right corner of the map
2. Go to 21.18 83.3 and you should see a lake and then you should see them/one now it gets tricky..
3. If it’s out of the water you are in luck!! If it’s in the water that’s gonna be harder, if it’s in the water shoot it so it comes out but you will have to chase after it because they won’t come and attack you once you find it net-projectile it and knock it out (preferable weapon: Shotgun). If it’s on land just projectile it and knock it out.
4. Feed it the kibble/Berry/Meat(It’s a omnivore) and watch it’s torpor just incase it doesn’t go down that fast but still.
5. Watch out for predators like: Terror bird, Thylacoleo, Direbear, Troodon all of the dangerous stuff.
6. cryopod the Milker and take it back to base, place it down, name it(if you have a name) and yea! You got a maewing :)
How to use(Nursing)
Items needed: Meat(if carnivore or omnivore)Berrys(If herbivore or omnivore) etc(if diff)inside of the maewings inventory. Proceed to put your baby to the maewing, go into the maewings wheel and press nursing mode and milk will uhh.. *silence* squirt out of its.. tittys yea uhm.. Ignore that😃. Your baby’s will have a trough above there head, that means the maewing is nursing them, it will make them go up so you don’t have to do it by putting food in the baby/trough. But you still have to take part and put food in the maewing. Cryopod your baby’s and turn off nursing for the maewing when logging off unless you have a tribe member who will watch over the baby’s a little and get meat etc for the baby’s to put in the maewing.
Really easy tames, have great weight, and are incredibly fast. To tame a low lvl simply shoot it with your x-bow and tranq arrows. For high lvl i reccomend a trap, but you can just tranq it, hunt it down, and tranq it again, otherwise if you have a high quality x-bow or longneck you can use that. Once KO'd feed pretty much any kind of food, mutton works best but you can use normal meat or mejo berries. Hope you find this useful.
If playing on local/dedicated server, you can just shoot them with a tranq arrow and wait for them to fly out of render distance. They will immediately stop running and you can just run up to them and shoot ‘em again. Repeat this process for an easy tame! I know ark is shutting down official servers soon so this tip should become very relevant.
If u don’t have a net you can shoot fast, you have 6-7 seconds before it ascends to heaven
It prefers meat more than berries but if you don’t have any meat then mejoberies are the next best thing
Once tamed these “milky mamas” -the wise words of syntac, can hold and feed babie Dino’s, mammals, and reptiles. (I recommend having a dimetrodon next to the Maewing to act as a incubater while egg hatches
These guys are found in the redwoods but I've found they're much easier to spot in asgard (North was where I found a bunch) also make sure to net gun them otherwise they're almost impossible to tranq because they glide when shot
These guys are easy to tame, you can either build a trap around it so it doesn’t dart away or you can net it with a net gun. I recommend the net gun, that’s what many people use. You don’t need to waste so many darts on the maewing since it gains torpor easily, but also keep an eye on its health just in case. Since these guys don’t have genders, you can breed them and both maewings will give one egg. They also will nurture your baby tames! Great creature to have, since they are incredibly fast and will take care of your baby dinosaurs, as well as carry them with its saddle. Up this if it helped! :)
EXTREMELY easy to tame as they have very low torpor, do not aggro and eat meat. (Mutton only next to kibble)
Can easily be tamed with the use of a simple trap and/or rare flower if you haven’t unlocked net gun yet (since they do zoom away the moment they take even the slightest damage) or if you’re like me, just chase it run their a$$ down with tranqs caveman style.
They consume very low stamina as they glide through the air, you can pretty much go from one corner of the map to another if you yeet yourself off of a high cliff and barely even use 50% of their stamina.
They can also jump very high if you hold down the jump button for a second or two which enables to glide even when it seems physically impossible.
Overall great starter/mid game tame and dare I say, even a end game tame.
Also, it’s super easy to get wyvern eggs with a maewing, it’s almost a joke as the maewing also swims very fast and doesn’t have an oxygen meter so you can pretty much dive bomb wyvern eggs (I can usually grab 2-3 eggs before things get too dangerous) and immediately glide away safely or directly into water and come out whenever my oxygen is low. (Wyverns don’t follow you into water and easily get distracted by literally any herbivore in their path)
