Don't tame the squid around the world barrier or the sea floor. If you attempt to tame it, one mastercraft saddle on a 30k turtle should get you through four feedings without force feeding veggie cakes. Drive a raft over and set your turtle to follow you on Passive. Ride the turtle down with your 50 pearls and let the squid come to you, get as close to the max depth for the squid as possible. When the squid grabs your turtle, jump off spam A at its beak. Hold A to ascend quickly upwards and if you had the squid at max depth the turtle should be able to follow you back up without being grabbed again. Set a timer for 10 minutes at the surface and when the timer has about a minute left start your descent to find the squid again. Rinse and repeat. Brought three turtles using this strategy, only one left the raft and all three turtles survived.
Just need a decent plesi with good saddle. Make sure to line up at the same depth of the squid. Plesi on passive and low follow. Jump off the please and stay to the left above it. Wait for the grab. Make sure it is a good grab no glitch. Swim in and feed. Swim up call follow and set 14 min timer. Repeat until tamed.
Idk if anyone else has has this happened to them, but on ragnorok I found about found about 10 of these scary bastards in the top left region, 2 od which were Alphabet, unless you got your self and incredibly overpowered tuso, mosasaurus, or basil, or just an armada of one of them don't go there, the alphas apparently love to fight in packs with about 2 other Tuso's each with a couple of other random ones not too far away,so be DAMN careful!!!!
It does torpor over time while holding onto creatures. Although it does take a while to knock anything out on its own. Sharks and anglers will fall asleep in a few minutes but level 140 Mosa took 47 minutes for me. Would be better to have a tribemember to shoot it while you hold it.
Right analog is the ink/speed boost.
Left trigger is the torpor grab right trigger after for blood siphon heal and right trigger is regular attack. Tamed 10 takes a while to really get the hang of it left trigger them into walls ppl won't see them until its 2 late
