  1. I had an Alpha Carno and an Alpha Raptor in my area for a while. I tried my best to take the carno and it destroyed me and my best tames. I tried avoiding them, but they seemed to just wander closer. Finally I took a pteranodon and led the raptor away, staying just a bit out of reach but close enough for it to follow. I had to park and shoot it a couple times, but eventually I turned it loose on some random beach with loads of dinos and just flew away. After that I did something similar with the carno, though a different direction.
  2. Xp from unmounted tame kill? I’m not clear on this, if I tame something and send it to kill, do I get any xp at all? I’m playing a solo survivor/brutal game and as such most of what I kill gives less than 1%. So I’m not sure how to test xp gain for this reasonably. I’m level 7 and managed to loot a couple tranq arrows from some sarcos that I stole the kills on. I was thinking about taming a pteranodon or two because I’m sure I can do it with just a single tranq arrow to the head (low level ones). Obviously I won’t have a saddle for it anytime this... year, so I wondered if I could just have it kill stuff and soak the exp, or if I have to be mounted to see any xp gain from its kills. Killing stuff is prohibitively hard, and though I will get there I would love to be able to tame something (anything) that would help me kill at a more reasonable rate.
