Passive tame using fish caught in Fish Basket in your 0-slot.
Larger X value fish seem to giver higher percentage tame per feed.
Fish Basket Tips:
1) Place basket in water and it will take several seconds before it is active. Once active you watch for fish to go near it and press E to catch it in the trap.
2) Fish in basket have a spoil timer. Place basket on hotbar and get in the water to refresh spoil timer.
3) Fish in basket can be released (into protected waters for security) and be “tamed”. You can later come back and put a basket down again to quickly re-catch the fish again. This allows you to have fish on standby for when you happen upon that particular Shadowmane you have been wanting.
4) Waiting on fish to get near basket can be a test in patience. Piranaha however will attack you, and can therefore be kited to a basket, where you will have a split second to catch it in the basket before it destroys the basket.
Taming Shadowman Tips:
1) Where Full Ghillie
2) The Shadowmane will do a few little circles when it is about to goto sleep
3) Crouch when within 30m of them.
4) I seemed to notice that if I had something in my hands, then they would wake just before I got there…so I go in empty handed.
5) If it aggros you, then taming will reset to 0.0%…so dont let it aggro you
6) As soon as you feed it, turn around and run away a good distance.
7) The taming does not wear off unless you get aggro…so be patient.
8) If there, is more than one Shadowmane in the group, it isnt required, but sure is easier if you take the time to split the group (fly high above in tek suit and shoot the unwanted ones with a rifle while they are all sleeping)
Fungal Wood can be found in the swamp on Asgard (purple trees) and in the Aberration caves. It just doesn’t look like the Aberration trees we’re familiar with. Look for small wooden like stalks holding a round white seed like pod. Hack away.
Are you considering taming a shadowmane? I may have some ideas on how you can! But first as with all of these, everything I say in this tip is entirely up to you to decide, however you tackle this beast in however you feel necessary with :D Now let’s get started shall we? Ok this is not a common beginners tame, as it’s a timed passive tame creature! If you have access to a rockdrake, I suggest bringing one to use it’s cloaking ability to scope one out! I also recommend some cactus broth to keep you undercover when things go south (medical brews might be necessary when dealing with these guys for the first time) also I recommend bringing flak/ Tek /or ghillie as you eithor want full taming effectiveness or just simply do not want to die! Now let’s start off with the taming supplies: All you need is tons of fish baskets and determination! Now let’s figure out where to find these guys! I’ve located them in fjordur, they spawn in asgards rockdrake laggoon! They hang out near the shore as well as the little islands within it! And this is where the chaotic taming process begins! Step 1: whip out your fish basket and yoink some fish ( most of the fish will do, as long as they are bigger than 0.5 size however the bigger the fish the faster and better taming and taming effectiveness will be) Step 2: grab your rock drake and use the cloak ability, this will make you invisible to basically anything! Step 3: Find one that’s alone (or go the passive aggressive way of finding a pack of them, single out one and beat the rest up) Why one that’s alone you may be wondering, because packs are harder to sneak up on, and why sneak up on them? Because you tame them while they sleep, they sleep for about 10/15 seconds until they wake up, then they walk arround and if they don’t see anything worth chasing down they will go back to sleep, however they have 2 blind spots and a single one will be a sitting duck to tame, because a pack of them may take advantage of this! They cannot see behind they’re back or they’re tail, to feed them the fish you have to crouch and sneak up to them using said blindspot and feed them, this is another part where the drake steps in, once you feed it the fish, you stealthily yet swiftly make your way to the drake to once again cloak, as the shadowmane will wake up and go invisible to hunt you down! Since the shadowmane cannot see you can simply follow it until it becomes visible once again and goes straight back to bed! Rinse and repeat! Eventually you got yourself a all and all great tame! What can this lion crossbred with a lion fish do? I can explain! Alright this creature is well rounded out, it’s attacks are swift and when attacking a creature will slowly generate a buff making its attacks more and more powerful! Ever seen a rapter attacking something? Pfft this things practically a ninja! It can be ridden without a saddle but if you look in its inventory it has its own natural armor! Also this creature has a pack ability when you tame a male and a few females, the male (when you hold down c and right click) will roar giving every shadowmane in the vicinity another buff, it consists of armor boosting, a damage buff, and not to mention a major speed buff! Also the shadowmane has multiple diffrent ability’s consisting: of a huge leap (doesn’t require mateboost), a flash attack( basically goes top speed and smacks whatever creature is closest) and the cloaking ability, its pretty self explanatory, other than its kinda slow! I hope my info will help you along the way! Good luck!
All you need is 1 stone foundation and 8 walls, hover over top with your tek suit let it teleport to you it will fall into the trap, turn your chest off and poof, you can feed through walls like any other passive tame, no need for all this other stuff.
Wildcard needs to make it to where fish baskets can be placed near enemy structures because everyone on PvE has pillared along every single river and pond and it is near impossible to find a decent spot to catch any fish.
So this is my theory.. Lions are a mammal, the shadow mane looks very similar and it runs as a pride/pack. So therefore it’s babies will be Cubs. If that’s the case, then i think you will have to tame a Maewing, find the lions den and use the Maewing to steal a cub and raise it yourself. Kind of like stealing eggs from wyverns or rock drakes etc. That’s just my thought anyway.
When you catch the fish, throw it back out and cryopod it for later. Build a 4 foundation 16 wall square trap with no roof. Hover over it and shoot the mayne with an arrow. It will teleport into the trap, and then leave render as fast as possible. Come back in at low altitude so it cant see you. From then on you’re good, no need for ghillie. Feed it fish nonstop until it tames, even while invisible! It seems to sleep for longer while in this trap too, currently 21:26 and still sleeping...
If you want to tame a shadowmane I would get fungal wood from the blue orb plants in the shadowmane area then make a trap. Four stone foundations two on both sides to make a square then two stone walls on all sides then ramps up then let it follow you on a flyer and then feed fish through the walls then you have a shadowmane.
These apex predators are the most overpowered creature you can use on genesis part 2! They are tamed with fish baskets, the higher the size of the fish, the better the outcome of the tame! The shadowmanes have three attacks and two special abilities, that being the regular bite/clawing attack, the teleport attack, the ultimate, cloaking and pack roar. The shadowmanes are similarly to real lions, in the way that they are gestation breeders, and are found in packs. Best taming method is to use a gillie suit and sneak up on them, and REMEMBER! You need to crouch in-order to tame them! They are also the singular BEST creatures for fighting Rockwell prime, just bring a massive pack of females and males! The males can use a pack roar, as mentioned earlier, and the females can use a pack cloak. And now, survivors, we’ve reached the end of this log! Stay strong, and keep surviving! And for me to make even more of these logs, going through every part of the genesis creatures abilities and other aspects, get this to ten ups, and you’ll have a big amount to read in front of ya!
They do not sleep at night, and if they see you or your creature, they will attack and go into a sort of hunting state to where they’ll start killing everything in the area. What I did was just leave render distance and come back, the Shadowmanes are usually sleeping when re-rendered into the game. From there you feed it once (you actually don’t need Gillie as long as you’re careful) and just continue the taming like a normal passive tame.
