A good idea on Ragnarok is to drop one in the desert temple and block the exits with wyverns. The put on ghillie and bug repellent. If it goes aggro run over and get on a wyvern. Tamed 2 level 150s like this. Best way to easily get them. Another thing is avoid taking in open desert because if a death worm shows up you are screwed and so is your mantis. Good luck taming!!!
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, Use Bug Repellant, Cactus Broth and Ghillie Armour for easy taming. The Mantis’ aggro range is crazy massive but if you have these buffs they will not see you coming, if you can, feed your mount cactus broth and bug repellant if you’re really paranoid. Happy Taming Survivors!
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.
