Get the turtle in open water if possible by aggroing it to avoid it getting caught on reef or land. If it stops moving the salmon make quick work of your parakeet taming school of fish, and game over...Clear any big nasties, reset aggro on the parakeet fish by getting out of render distance and then kite them (dismounted) onto the turrle. Once the parakeet fish are on the turtle, swim around behind , rotating to face it as it circles. Position yourself between any coelocanth or salmon that spawn, facing them as they try to munch through your taming school of fish. Make sure you face AWAY from the turtle, and stab away with a pike. Only way i tried that worked solo.....
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!!!!!!!
I don't know if it will help but I lured a swarm near a 130 turtle and got killed by an eel. When I got back it was tamed and came out 195 so... Either I got lucky or it's a mechanic that could be used? 👀
When taming, make sure not to trap it. When it comes in contact with a barrier of any kind, sabertooth salmon are spawned in behind it. The salmon will bite it an reset its taming. If you tame it in the open water with no barriers it will tame pretty easy. You can not put berries into your hot bar and passive it or honey. You can not knock it out to tame either.
