The beached tuso on crystal isles can be tamed you just have to hit it on few times while on your tame and stand infront of tentacles. It will put you through the mesh but when you get off youll pop back up feed pearls and repeat until tamed. Your tame will also pop back up when it lets go
Today, I Lost A Brave Soul. My Itchythosaurus Fought Brave. As the Squid Grabbed Him, I Watched My Dolphin Cry Out. As Soon as the Living Demon Was Done With My Itchy, He grabbed Me. One thing lead to another, I Lost Hard Work On A Pursuit, And My Best Itchy Friend.
When attacking, use Basilosaurus whales, they cannot be grabbed, be aware that once low health, the squid will flee and emit ink, and debuff you by making all nearby creatures aggro you. I almost lost a 265 basilosaurus to 4 dunkleos and 10 megalos that boxes me into a star formation.
For the ones saying they are rare and can’t find them they obviously didn’t actually take the time to look. Whenever I go around the whole ocean for red drops I always encounter at least 3-4 of them. So don’t be one of those guys. Take your time and actually use your eyes. Also if you’re going to fast like on a plesi mosa or ichthy then they could possibly not render in time. So take it slow and never sit still for too long.
The tuso is the titan of the sea,the mosa is the giga of the sea(with out rage),the pleaseo is the bronto of the sea,the dolphin is the carnivore type of equus of the sea,the sarco is the kapro of the sea,the dunky is the carnivore turtle of the sea,the fish is the pig of the sea, the piranah is the raptor of the sea and the mega piranah is the alpha raptor of the sea.
Just tamed a 150 on an official server. Building a trap high off the ocean floor works great just trap it and rotate out 150 tamed turtles hp pumped. Took about 2 hours with pearls for the tame. Took 50 pearls every 5-10 min. Happy taming!
OK so for those of you actually looking for tips.
1: it can eat 50 at a time so take 50 with you each time.
2: it hold mounts only for a little bit so if you can, just hop back on the turtle quickly and swim away till the next feeding
3: once you tame it beware manta s and anglers as the tuso cannot hit them while they glitch into the head of the squid. It's not that hard if you prepare to lose everything and keep trying. It's worth it once you do but you will need escorts to help with mantis and anglers such as megaladons.
Don't bother wasting sweet veg cakes and risking high level dinos. Get it to grapple your mount, feed it, swim away with your mount on passive and follow, squid will let go after a while, wait above the squids aggro level until the feeding interval is up and then go back to feed it again. Rinse and repeat until tamed. You don't need to stay in the squids grasp for the whole time, affinity won't drop whilst you wait above it.
Don’t let it grab your tame when near the ocean floor. It’s mechanic while holding your tame makes it tilt in such a way that you are moved underground. Then the game rerenders you and your tame above the water. Lost a lvl 218 mosa instantly. Try and get the squid to go a little higher before trying to tame.
