Where to Find Ravager
Ravager is a pack hunter so it requires extra care when you go to tame one. They usually move around in a pack of three or four so you need to go prepared. In the pack, one of the Ravagers will be bigger and glowing. This means that this Ravager has the highest level so you should want this one.
Once you tame a glowing one, the remaining ones can also be tamed and they will follow you in a pack. This way you can hunt in a pack to easily take down larger foes. You can find them roaming around the world in many places so finding them is not a problem.
How to Tame Ravager
Just like any other creature, when you want to tame a Ravager, you will need to first bring it down. Once it is down, feed it some meat.
If you do not have enough meat in your inventory, then you must first take down some sheep and collect some meat so that you can feed the Ravager one it is down. Since Ravager will be mostly in packs, you will need to take out the other ones so that you can focus on the glowing one. Once the Ravager is down, keep it unconscious and feed it some food.
Feed it enough meat and it will be tamed. Before you can ride it, you will need a saddle, which becomes available at level 47. Once you are level 47, collect the required items and craft the saddle to ride. Ravagers are good pack hunters.
They have a left click bite attack and a right click slash attack. Slash attack is useful for beginning attacks as it stops the enemy from running away however to strike the enemy, the Ravager stops running so it becomes useless if you are running after an enemy. They also have a high stamina so you can run for longer periods.
The best thing about Ravagers is that they can also walk on the zip lines. Simply aim at the zip line, when the crosshair appears, jump and you will land on the zip line and now can walk on it back and forth. This is a great move and it really gives you the freedom to move around especially if you have a zip line anchor on your crossbow.
You can bait a Ravager away from their pack by using honey. If you’re alone, you shouldn’t really tame more than one at a time.
So, bait them away and knock them down. Do this one by one to get all of them.
Ravagers tend to be quite expensive to train when it comes to food. This is why you will have to have a crossbow with some of those tranq arrows.
Bolas do not last too long, and you don’t really want a Ravager escaping its bola to gnash you. So, to address the expensive need for food, go ahead and harvest a sheep nearby before you start taming. One sheep will be enough for a pack.
Wild Ravagers will be able to apply gash, regardless if they’re alpha or not, and it will deal a percentage of your health as damage over time while slowing you down as well.
This is why you will have to bola them and not get close to them. To tank the hits that you take while you utilize bolas, you should tame a mid-level raptor.
Ravagers will react more fiercely than raptors once you bola them, they tend to run away after become loose. If you bola the alpha, the rest may have an increase chance at escaping once they’ve been bola-ed for long. Eventually, though, they will come at you, which is why you should have enough bolas ready.
