Ark: Survival Evolved is an action-adventure survival game set in an open world environment with a dynamic day-night cycle and played either from a third-person or first-person perspective. To survive, players must establish a base, with a fire and weapons; additional activities, such as taming and feeding dinosaurs, require more resources. 
The game is played from either a third-person or first-person perspective and its open world is navigated on foot or by riding a prehistoric animal. Players can use firearms and improvised weapons to defend against hostile humans and creatures, with the ability to build bases as defense on the ground and on some creatures. The game has both single-player and multiplayer options. Multiplayer allows the option to form tribes of members in a server. The max number of tribe mates varies from each server. In this mode all tamed dinosaurs and building structures are usually shared between the members. There is a PVE mode where players cannot fight each other.

Hey, human beings, welcome back to another video here on the channel today, we're back on the how to tame series where I'll show you how to tame every creature how to trap them how to tame them and all that good stuff, today's episode I'm going to be talking about the manta.

We haven't covered many sea creatures.

The manta are a pretty decent team.

Uh for early game-ish.

I mean, mid-game probably not early game more of a mid-game team and what you'll need to try and tame.

This guy is it'd be good.

If you had a full scuba kit, but it is not necessary.

I mean, you can do this very scuba kit.

But the scuba kit makes this a lot easier.

You also need angler gel because that's, the only way to tame them is passively with the angle of jealousy, drag drag the angler gel to the bottom to get angler gel.

You kill angler fish or death worms.

And they would normally be quite egg.

The fish will be quite low to the floor.

So this should be easy to get.

Um, really on genesis.

It's, probably the easiest way to get them, you could do this by swimming or by using an dolphin, which I showed you a video before had to get a dolphin, entertainment dolphin, uh, these guys, you just get, uh feed spoiled meat.

But as you can see, there is a stingray down there, um, or a manta sorry.

And the manta is extremely fast.

So what you want to do is because it's a passive tape, it's going to keep swimming away.

So you want to try and lure it to shallow waters.

Now you can do this two ways, um, both ways revolve around.

You shooting it.

But the idea is that you shoot it lower it towards you because it's quite a passive creature until you get too close.

Or this is what I'm saying get this guy and try and lower it to the edge.

Now, you'll find man to pretty much all over the sea.

But probably one of the easier ways let me just hit this guy right now.

One of the easy ways is if you see a basilo, they will always be around the basilos.

And also they attack you in packs, which I probably should have mentioned beforehand.

But if there was multiple manta around, did you attack one manta or try and tame one manta all the mantas will come after you? Okay, that makes sense.

So what I gotta do is we'll, try and learn them to shallower waters because they're so fast you don't want them to get away now like this, you could technically put a few gates up here and sort of try and trap them here.

But the idea is you want them to keep following you until you get some shallow waters.

If you want to use gates that is completely up to you make sure that you like let them hit you a few times.

So they stay aggroed.

So we're going to carry on to it, keep getting them to follow us and I'm saying in a moment, these shallow waters over this lip will probably be one of the better places to drag it we'll, try and get attention again, like say, it is passive until you go right in front of it.

And then it gets mad at you so let's, keep trying to learn it this way.

Okay, I think this would be perfect.

This is like quite a shallow area, um there's, only a few ways that it can go.

So what we're going to do right now is we're going to chuck it there.

And this guy's going to get attacked by piranha, but that's fine, while he deals with that we're going to go up and just feed it.

Some angler gel now, depending on your rates.

And depending on the level.

This may take longer you can somewhat run it in the shallow waters.

And if you need to you can escape onto shore, like there, we've got a few, uh, piranhas attacking us, which we don't want actually it's swimming off.

This is where flippers come real in handy, because you you definitely need those flippers to catch up with it.

But this is why we're in shallow waters we're, hoping that it sort of turns around in a moment, or at least, you know, doesn't, well, run straight for where it's going, which is the ocean? Okay, luckily, it's got stuck.

So hopefully it's ready for another feed in a moment, it's, not right yet.

So if you stay behind it, this guy can't attack you so that's, one of the tips if you can stay behind it, where like the the tail end is, you can definitely just stay behind it and not get attacked at all, um it's, not quite hard to get there.

And it also will spin around in circles, which is great.

And basically we just gotta wait until this guy needs to feed again.

So you see at the moment, it's been in circles it's trying to attack me, but because we're like right next to it in shallow waters.

It can't go up and down we're, right behind it with the uh snorkel and all that.

So we could just stay here.

I mean, we've got ages.

We've got until the snorkel break so plenty of time unless it turns on us like that, but it doesn't got to hit on us yet.

So this is not too bad like I said, another method for this.

If you could not be bothered with this, you get into shallow waters.

And then you can sort of trap it in a like, just put gates in the water with uh doors on just like normal gates and just trap it.

And then it can't get out, and you can just keep going back and forth whenever you need to and that's practically this technique you just you got to swim on one of the fins right behind it.

It won't run away because it's trying to aggro on you, but it can't agree on you because the turn radius and you're like right on it.

And then you just keep doing this until you can tame it up until it's hungry again, you can force feed it again.


So once you take this guy, you can craft the saddle now you get the saddle at level 28, and it doesn't cost too much resources.

So it's, quite like, I said, it's quite an early game, but you need to be mid game really to effectively have it.

Once you've got yourself the manta this guy as you can see already is incredibly fast.

It has faster base speed than the dolphins.

So dolphins are quite quick in themselves.

But these guys, these guys are really fast for example, trying to attack a megalodon as such you.

So just like poke it and then run away.

So like pokemon, it's, fantastic because of how fast these guys are.

And you can also level up the movement speed, which would be fantastic to make these even faster going down and up extremely fast, which makes some really good mounts for the sea for getting like sea loot and all that and especially going for the rivers as well, because as you can see they're like incredibly fast, the only ability slash attack that they have is the left click, which is sort of like this attack and they're, not the strongest that you saw on the megalodon.

This is a level.

It was a level, 40s, it's, a level, 173 right now with that tamed it's, a perfect team and effectiveness.

This guy does about 90 or damage to, uh, megalodon.

So it's, not the strongest.

But I mean, the speed makes up for it for traveling around the water.

I would pick this guy over anything any day.

I mean, I feel like it's super fast.

The other thing that you can do is, you can actually breach the water.

So if you get close to the edge of the water and press the jump button, you can sort of glide through the water.

So you sort of breach the water, which is really cool.

It just looks amazing.

Oh cool that looks.

I mean, it looks amazing.

So the bad two is it's, a really basic creature, it's, not super strong.

But honestly, the main reason I would get one of these is for the speed.

I mean, we're just traveling around so fast.

I'd say it's fast, the majority of land creatures.

It is amazingly fast.

Stats wise has a decent amount of weight.

So you can you can try and put a bunch of stuff in here and try and like, you know, while traversing the waters or like the low c areas, you can try and get some oil and stuff really easily.

If you press c on the keyboard, you will like slowly drift down as you can see, uh, you can just do this by looking down and pressing shift as well.

And that will take you down.

But you can hold c.

I honestly can't say, much more about the manta.

I mean, it's just incredibly fast tame for getting sea loot, and maybe some sea resources such as oil and stuff because it has a decent amount of weight.

If you imprint these guys, uh, maybe mutate them.

A few times they're, very good, like.

I said, not the best to attack it.

But you can't do sort of attacks where you just like nibble on them like that see that 100 damage.

I mean against everything it's, not the best, but it's still really doable all right guys.

I mean, that's, the manta video it's, super super quick.

I hope you've enjoyed it.
