PRO TIP: on 2x taming weekends (Evolution Events) on official servers. You can knock out a level 20 or below elemental, slap some sulfur in it, and call it a day as it will not require narcotics on 2x but WILL still take 4 hours.
For some reason, after the latest update, X-rock elementals (haven't checked other variants) are no longer tameable. Whenever you knock them out, they don't eat and don't have a taming bar. Forcetame also doesn't affect them, so I believe it's a glitch
To tame these turret soakers I’d recommend getting four metal gates 5 pillars 3 ceilings and 3 walls. For the trap and the pillars are supposed to prevent the golems rocks from hitting the cannon. AIM FOR THE HEAD
