Fairly easy tame when you use turtles and a decent mosa/shark/squid. Clear out the anglers, plesios, jellyfish around the squid then euip 50 blackpearls in your feeding slot. Have your turtles all follow the mosa/shark/squid and have all of them set to passive. Ride a turtle down to the squid and let the tuso grab it. Jump off the turtle and swim to the beak and feed. Swim back to your other turtles and wait around 14 minutes until the second feeding equiping another 50 b-pearls.after second feeding, you only need to wait about 7 minutes for each additional feeding (use dodorex for amount of feedings). On 2x taming youll only need 200 pearls for a 150. Get insane amounts of fish/meat/prime with your new tuso mount to feed all your carnivorous breeding needs.
Taming with a turtle is such an unnecessary hassle. Just use a passive Spino with good health, a good saddle, and if possible, some movement speed. 1. It’s faster and more manoeuvrable than a turtle. 2. If u die while feeding the Tuso pearls, the spino won’t get killed it’ll just float straight to the top when the squid detaches.
Honestly, mosas are better then turtles, when I tried to tame this with a turtle two of my turtles died, however my ONE mosa could take it on with absolutely no problems, between feeds just feed it fish meat
RAG TIP: Go to 44 10 for squids, let one follow you to 28 6, it's a huge chasm where nothing spawns so nothing will distract you, I've timed 3 squids just by having it grab my turtle and swimming away from it; swimming 10 feet up will cause the squid to lose interest. First feed is instant, second is 25m wait, the next one is 15m on x2. Worked everytime with no issues.
I play on official primitive. And I have tamed 3 of these beasts without loosing a single dino. All you need is a average lvl pleis or Mossi and pump health. Ride the Dino down and stay away from any edges then come to a complete stop and wait until it grabs you. Wait around 2 seconds before jumping off and make sure your dino is set to passive. Swim up to it and feed then swim straight up. Keep going but don't go out of whistle distance. Quick whistle all and watch your dino break free and swim up to you then just jump on and swim up and repeat
Swim your tame next to it and wait for the grab, dismount and feed the pearls then swim up, it will do around 2.5k damage before it lets go of your tame so keep that in mind when deciding what to take.
Rinse and repeat
Don't bother searching for black pearls in Ark Mobile! Feed the squid a stack of cooked prime meat after giving it soothing balm!
(This works well on easy servers, check gamepedia for how many stacks it'll need with soothing balm)
