ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Trapping them in a building never worked for me. Even when not aggro i could not feed it. If taming in the desert use a flying combat mount. Use bug spray on the mount and yourself so you can land,dismount,feed and fly off clearing nearby dinos until next feed. This stops it aggroing on your mount and helps you avoid chasing it around on foot losing food/water
More Mantis Taming & KO Tips
These should have something else to tame them with besides horns. Like a kibble, spoiled meat, etc. don’t you agree?
They can tame fast with rhino horns. Up so Dododex can change the info please and thank you
Do not be me and knock out a 150 after searching 3 hours coming to realize it's a passive tame.
How to Tame a Mantis:
1. Absolutely obliterate some Deathworms because you’re a gigachad and don’t feel fear..or you can kill some Woolly Rhinos, that works too.
2. Prepare, get a full suit of ghillie armor and maybe some bug repellent just to be sure. Get your deathworm horns and make it to the desert or wherever you’re taming it
3. Find a nice Mantis, probably 145-150, sneak up on it and shove the horns right up it’s ass
4. Name your Mantis, they can hold a variety of tools, pickaxes, hatchets, swords and pikes, they also have a jump attack that’ll drain stamina but does quite a lot of damage
On Fjordur, you can find rocks in the volcano area that resemble fossilized Death Worms, which can be harvested for Death Worm Horns, making taming them much easier there, if you have the rest of the necessary equipment
Please don’t listen to the boy who said with bug repellant, ghille and cactus broth that the aggro range is “literally zero” cause it’s not.. you can get super duper close without aggravating it but you can’t get too close so still be careful and try not to stand so close you can touch it or it will STILL AGGRO.
If you have a wyvern and you’re on a map with an ocean you can pick the mantis and drop it in water, it won’t agro you and you can tame it without needing any ghillie armour or bug repellent.
