What I found helpful for if your just starting out look for a level 5 and use a bow not a crossbow b/c a crossbow has a slower reload time. And if you have tribe members online ask them to help, but make sure to change the tribe setting and your tribe member could help. If you are playing on solo just start small with a level 5.
I had a pteradon Named Tital wave. He is the best friend I have❤️. But it came to a end, He and I were flying around the we both ran into a sarcophagus that pull me off and ate him , I survived it. Please one prayer for Tidal wave
If you find a level 5 one of these and gonna tame make sure you have 2 prime meat if it's normal all settings is normal and prime meat gives it 50% taming thing please up this so people who want this can see it
