How do I tame a tusoteuthis? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a tusoteuthis.
How to tame tuso
1 get a tame. I don’t see why turtles are so good at taming, meg worked fine but either will work. lvl up heath
2 search deep sea, I found 3 on brutal from the bottom left corner of the map to the top left corner of the map.
3 if you have soothing balm use it but I didn’t need it. use black pearls takes 50 at a time but if you did use balm you can use cooked prime meat takes 30 at a time I think.
4 go on a killing spree in the sea to open spawn spots for tuso.
5 when you find it, kill all eels, mantas, and any other hostile Dino’s near it.
6 tame by letting it grab your tame, then feeding it the pearls or prime meat.
U can only feed it black pearls and it must be grabbed on something to feed it, up so new players can see
Found out today that when taming one you can have it grab wild dinos instead of your own tames, I had a beached one grab a wild trike and tamed it with that
The note that the taming is non-violent is entirely on your part. The squid however, can be as violent as i danm wants
I tamed one of these and immediately died, of course my reaction was like with most other tames of oh god dammit now it’s gonna die, I zipped over on a dolphin and found it sitting innocently in a ball of about 50 meg carcasses with 2 plesiosaurs in the mix
Will not grab mosas in mobile!!!!
You need two people, one for feeding the black pearls and the other to feed the turtle that is in the grasp of the Tusoteuthis, with sweet vegetable cake for the health and to feed it stimulates berries as well
Read this, it might help you:
1: The best place to encounter tuso is 90-91 lat and cover all longitude from red ob to the end of herb Island.
2: Don't solo search, make a party and cover full bottom of the map.
3: Don't search in shallow water and surface, go for mid and deep sea.
4: They need to grab your tame then only can they be tamed.(Take Carbonemys with health and speed pumped)
5: They take 50 black pearls per serving.
6: They only agro in deep sea.
7: Last and the most important, the server must be brutal or their chance of spawning is not that much. Put server to brutal and for one day atleast go killingspree in ocean to open spawn spots for tuso.
8: Pump only melee and health to tuso.
Honestly the best place to find a Tuso is the western part of Ragnarok, at roughly 50,10. There is a medium sized trench that houses at least a dozen. Here's an easy way to tame.
1) Grab something to breathe underwater. (Scuba or a tek helmet)
2) Grab a beefed up tame with good hp. (I use a Shadowmane because they breathe underwater and have insane natural armor)
3) Let the Tuso Grab your tame and while it's latched, swim up and feed it one stack of 50 black pearls. It has to be 50. Any type of meat will take you 3 hours compared to a couple minutes.
4) Rinse and repeat. Be prepared to die, taming a Tuso for the first time isn't super easy but remember not to panic. Clear the area out around the Tuso you want to tame first and then try.
Use a Dunkleosteus instead, get 100 or 200 black pearls in your inventory (consumes 50 black pearls per feed)
Basilosaurus (whale dino) is immune to the squids grabs. Its also immune to jellyfish stings. :)
Let it attach to turtles that you are riding
Swim up to its mouth and feed black Pearl's to tame
I’ve feared the ark ocean for a while now and this just brings a inky cherry on top
For the person who said they only eat black pearls:they also eat meat.
If your scared of the ocean just get a dolphin nothing will attack it I killed a alpha mosa with just a dolphin this is sponsored by dolphin number 9756
Use a Mosa to tame this beast. Let the Mosa get grabbed wait a couple seconds get off feed it black pearls. Have your mosa on follow lowest, swim a bit away from the Tuso after feeding it, when the Tuso lets go the Mosa will swim to you. Repeat until Tuso it tamed. Super easy!
Get a water Dino with a lot of health get grabbed go to its mouth and feed it black pearls go back on the Dino and wait until it’s hungry again and feed repeat until it’s done
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!
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.
All you have to do to tame one of these is search the deep ocean find a open space and go on a killing spree until you find one. After you find one you just let it grab your mount (Many suggest turtles) then go to its mouth and feed it meat or black pearls (more than 50).
