How to tame a low lvl (1-8) griffin easy without being high lvl or having a crown. (Having god console makes thigs easier!)
You will need: 4 stone dinosaur gateways, 2 stone dinosaur gates, 200+ bio toxin, a longneck rifle with 40 darts, luck, a chefs station or a female allo, and a name with an ending if the following;
Note: Yes, a griffin can be named...Moron.🙄
Note: If you do not have a name that ended in one of these, you cannot tame a griffin without being lvl 85^, getting a crown, or getting a name change ticket.
Step 1: Gather your stuff. (If you have god console you can skip most of it and spawn it in.) (Bring 7-9 allo kibble.)
Step 2: Get a good Argy with good HP and Stamina.
Step 3: Fly to fars peak.
Step 4: Build the griffin trap. How to: Build the 4 gateways in a straight line BUT leave a small, dilo torso thick (1m) sized gap in between each gateway, and on the FIRST and LAST gateways build the gates. (If you own god console, spawn the resources in and craft them.)
Step 5: If you own god console, turn immortaility ON. Look for a low lvl griffin that respects you.
Step 6 (Optional): If you still can't find a griffin that respects you, kill some random creatures around (Ankys, sabers, etc.) It'll open more spawn slots for griffins.
Step 7: When you find a griffin that respects you, aggro it.
Step 8: Lead the low lvl griffin to your trap. Open the first gate. Walk through it with your Argy. (If you own god console, turn immortality ON.) The griffin will get stuck. Keep walking through until you're totally out. shut the back door.
Step 9: Dismount and shut the front door.
Step 10: Load your longneck with darts, and shoot the griffin with darts. If you own god console, you only need to bring one dart, and turn on infinite ammo.
Step 11: Once it's out, Feed it bio toxin to keep it unconsious. Keep it unconsious until it's hungry. If you own god console, keep spawning bio toxin and feeding it.
Step 12: Once it's hungry, use the soothing balm on it, and give it the allo kibble.
Step 13: Wait with the patience of a saint.
Step 14: WHAMMO! You have a low lvl griffin.😀
Bonus Step (FOR GOD CONSOLE OWNERS ONLY): Level up your griffin to a good level.
Step 15: Please^if this was helpful!

To all who are wanting to tame one: (WARNING! WALL OF TEXT)
If you are level 40+, your surname needs to match that of one of these creatures. For example, if your name in the game is Sasha, but the one you want to tame has the name Morphi’i, you will need to change your name with a name change ticket (100 amber) to Sashai’i. If you are level 95+ or have the gold crown skin on your helmet, then you can disregard needing to change your name.
Next, a trap of a 4x4x4 cube with 4 wooden Dino gates is the best way to trap it. Griffins can damage wood, but I was able to trap & tame 2 with a single of the structure aforementioned. When taming, it is important to note that if you do not have a soothing balm, it is going to take literal hours to tame the griffin. A x10 taming balm is decent, and easily obtained from a dungeon (the southern one near the center is my favored one for gathering these), but a x15 is preferable. Keep in mind even with a x15 it will still probably take 20+ minutes to tame *at best.*
For food, it only accepts prime meat, prime fish meat, either raw or cooked (but raw is better, of course), or allosaurus kibble. To get a griffin to lay eggs, you must have the female mate with a male, and griffins only mate with another griffin of the same surname. Go for a low level, always, unless you are prepared with thousands of narcotics and armed with the patience of a saint.
Once tamed, lead your griffin back home and put it in a safe space to let it passively level up. Once it’s health is at least x3 that of a normal griffin and it’s stamina is at least x2 of its original value, you’re ready to take it out on flights.
Furthermore, breeding griffins will produce better offspring, just like with all other dinos, but again, be armed with the patience of a saint. It takes many real-life days, about 2 weeks is my guess, of nonstop gameplay, for the baby to mature completely. While it is in its baby phase, it must be near its mother to feel secure enough to eat. However, once it is juvenile, it can be moved away from its mother if necessary. Hatching the egg will take at least 5 air conditioners.
TL;DR: Royal griffins are mainly trophy tames, but once trained enough, they are a cross between argentavis for firepower, and tapejaras for flight mobility, with a large aoe attack.
If you’re in single player, Taming these will be much easier, just follow these steps.
1. Select a low lvl griffin, Lead it away from the mountian into a trap where there are no creatures
2. Place down a bed and sleep, this will cause the griffin to be starving when u KO it. (Only works in single player, in Multiplayer just leave it trapped for a few hours and dont let it kill anything)
3. Knock it out, Get soothing balm and give it to the griffin, Then get prime meat or allo kibble and give it to the griffin. Just make sure you have enough so that it tames
4. Get another low lvl griffin with the same last letters in its name that is the opposite gender.
5. Repeat the process, tame up around 2-4 females and 1 male only.
6. Breed them, make griffin kibble.
7. Repeat the process with a high lvl griffin, but use griffin kibble instead.
Quick tip: when i tamed a 290 griffin at 10x balm it needed 4 griffin kibble and at 15x balm it needed 3, if that helps.
