When knocking out a Rex be very aware of your surroundings, as they commonly spawn where most of the islands predators are. I recommend using a crossbow for knocking out, as it is the cheapest and most efficient way of doing it. You should also have a flying or fast mount to escape in case things go wrong. Once it's down it's very simple, use this app to determine how much food/narcotics it will need. Also depending on the server, I also recommend placing wooden spike traps around the downed rex so it stays safe. Once it's done taming enjoy your new best friend.
I recommend using a scorpion to tame it, pump all levels into health on the scorpion. Then just attack the Rex but with 10 to 20 seconds in between hits, DO NOT pump anything into dm. Also this is what I use to tame literally everything, and it doesn’t even cost anything. Pls put this up in chat for everyone to go “oh that’s not a bad idea” 👌😄👍
Dudes so sad just checked survivetheark.com and in there new news report they said that this will be the last year for and i qoute "as we enter into ark1 last year of events we will be making each cosmetic item avialible after each event ends...." And later it says "all the event content will be added to the pc game at the end of the years events cycle so they can be opted into for our pc unofficial server owners and players" Sad news right there but talk in the chat shows that the official serrvers will be closing down as well to make way for ark .All ican say is that 2 better be worth it.
spread the word!! one ^ = one pettion to keep official servers up in case they do take it down
If you use the bear trap strategy which is if you lead it into a Dino gateway that is shaped in a triangle and with a bear trap in the middle (Large Beartrap) and when it is stuck you must put a dinogate behind it to trap it and then knock out.
