These guys are pretty easy to tame. I normally find them by the swamps and it’s quite dangerous there so get a club and hit it in the direction out of the swamp then try to corner it into some rocks or something then knock it out and feed it tinto berries, tamed pretty quick for me. Get a LOT of berries if you are planning on taming one of these guys.
Here's a fun thing to do (also important if you want fertiliser).
Put 500+ stimberries in a phio's inventory and force feed them really fast. I would recommend an autocliccker. You will get an epic amount of poop. I also remember some trollers did this on servers to cause alot of lag lol
Super East to tame, I just cornered it and clubbed it till it was unconscious. Then I feed it, that was the hardest part. I had to harvest berries while taming, so be preped if you want to tame one of these suckers, or just knockout near lots of bushes.
u can find them at beaches and swamp bola it or build a trap make sure u bring alot of mejoberries bring narcotics if u want knock it out then feed it mejoberries when tamed feed it stimberries for poop use the poop for fertilizer for ur farm
Since I use these things for fertilizer I didn't know what to upgrade so I just went with speed. Now this phioma has 300% movement speed and is faster than raptors. It's so fun to see a pig run this fast.
Here's how to tame a Phiomia, multiple steps, with Argentavis and without:
•Have a Bola ready
•Get a club or slingshot, tranq arrows do just fine as well
•Gather PLENTY of crops and/or berries
•Search in the redwoods or swamps, they mostly hang around in those areas, but BEWARE! It's dangerous! If you're lucky, you might find one at the edge of a beach.
•If you found one, wrap it with a Bola
•Use whatever you have to knock it out with
•Guard it, everything will want to eat it
•Have a saddle ready
•Use whatever KO tool(tranq arrows or club recommended)
•Mount the Argentavis
•Search redwoods or swamps
•Pick it up
•Place it in a pen or a safer, secluded area
•Wrap it if not in a pen
•Use tranq arrows or darts for quick KO
•Guard it with your Argentavis
These aren't very good choices as mounts, but can be very useful for farming! When feeding stimberries to them, it acts as a laxative, so you can get fertilizer more frequently! Just be sure to have plenty of stimberries, and enjoy your Phiomia!
