So not only are they a pain in the ass when wild but yet a pain to tame too, who's idea was it to have boethia as a dino? Sacrifice your own tames to these things and grab them for yourself, sacrifice at night IN A TAMING PEN and set your dino to aggressive or neutral passive WILL NOT tame troodons. Dodos are best bet as they're easily tamed but they give little tame effectiveness and add about as much to the bar as meat does to Rex's. Still, dodos have a very small chance to kill the troodon so stick 10 dodos in a pen of 3 level 10 troodon a and they SHOULD tame.
At lvl 72 with flak armor on, a lvl 5 Troodon knocked me out with one attack at night. Last thing I saw was those glowing eyes before passing out. My Guess is that they attack vital organs. Luckily my Doedicarus was up for a game of baseball and launched that little devil out into the stands.
