They have patched the render range range so ignore any tips that say to leave render as it will no longer. Guess I’m stuck with the turtles I have, I’ve spent three hours trying to take one of these things and had it walk out of the water which reset it taming! It was at 80% that time. Never got it above 20 after that. What he for the saber tooth salmon that spawn to kill the swarm if they bite the turtle it resets to zero and you start over. Extremely frustrating way to tame a creature. I would like to beat whoever came up with this idea.
Lead it into a line of stone behemoth gates and close a gate behind it and it will be trapped or you make a square box of Dino gates and nothing can mess its taming up while it’s being tamed so up this!!!!!!!
Tip for everyone:
Don't get a microbe swarm while on a Mount. Get off to aggro and stay off, the swarm will aggro easier off a Mount, and stay aggrod better. Swimming backwards you'll swim at a similar speed to the microbe swarm. (PC) Use "K" to see where you're going.
Solo player tips:
Step 1. Set dino spawn to 2.0 to find Megachelon and microbe swarms easily. (Also up dino tame speed if you wish)
Step 2. Get full scuba suit, but only use the body piece when you need it as the ocean biome in Genesis GREATLY reduces oxygen consumption underwater.
Step 3. Get night vision goggles to spot microbe swarms very easily. Works best at night.
Step 4. Get an X Basilosaurus.
Step 5. Find a high concentration of Megachelon and then swim down to find a microbe swarm. Bring it back up and use the basilosaurus to defend against sharks, eels, and sabertooth salmon (watch near the microbe swarm around the turtle, they'll spawn nearby the swarm)
Step 6. Start collecting Megachelon to build an army.
