Jays Wing Posted September 1, 2021 Share Posted September 1, 2021 You want to tame a beefalo huh? But first, you gotta know the steps... First, the 4 tendencies and what they do Rider beefalo: Ride your beefalo often Once fully tamed, it runs faster than any other tendency Deals 25 damage Great for travelling! Pudgy Beefalo: Overfeed your beefalo Really slow... Sanity gain of 6 sanity per minute Deals 20 damage Not really great... but stacks with other sanity gains! Ornery beefalo: Fight with your beefalo often Good Speed Deals 50 damage (66 with war saddle) Sometimes this beefalo will get fussy and won't allow you to mount it unless you feed it/brush it One of the best beefalo tendencies! Amazing for certain boss fights! Default Beefalo: Balance all stats HOW DO YOU GET THIS??? 34 damage Nice speed! Not the best but certainly not the worst! RECOMMENDED BUT CERTAINLY NOT REQUIRED ITEMS! Beefalo bell (2 flint, 3 gold), name your beefalo! it can also catch up quicker Brush (1 tusk, 1 steel wool, and 2 gold), lowers the time a beefalo is tamed You can only brush a beefalo once a day, otherwise you're just losing durability Food Recommendations: Twigs Cooked bull kelp Berries Dragonpie Cooked cacti Light bulbs, petals, etc.. A beefalo takes 20 days to tame (15 with brush) At first when taming a beefalo, it bucks you off after 15 seconds when mounted, this timer increases as domesticating goes on When fully tamed, the beef bucks you off after 13 minutes of riding. How to feed: Your beefalo will do it's hungry animation until above 200+ hunger (its max is 375) Once it stops, then there is no need to feed it anymore.. But once it farts (Yes this is a thing), stop feeding (unless you're aiming for a pudgy beefalo) Once it pukes, you have gotten yourself a pudgy beef and a sick one : ( What saddle do I recommend for the starting of taming? Just regular saddle, you wouldn't want your special ones losing durability if the beefalo shakes it off Glossamer saddle is great for rider beefalo SOMETHING ABOUT SALT LICKS: A salt lick pauses a beefs domestication when parked, other than that, I wouldn't use them Keep feeding your beefalo and riding it for 20 days (or 15), and once it poofs, you have done it! Your beefalo is yours to keep, have fun! Obedience: Tendency: Minimum Obedience: Default 80% Ornery 45% Pudgy 60% Rider 95% 10%: Beefalo is allowed to be saddled A beefalo's obedience has to be 50% and above in order to ride it Overfeeding a beefalo causes the obedience points to drop by 30% Starving a beef, however, results in losing 100% obedience per day! A beefalo's obedience is gained by riding, brushing, and feeding Some other mechanics: beefalos are great for carrying heavy items (statues and marble pieces), there is no speed penalty When carrying a statue on your own, even when fully tamed, your beefalo will do its hunger animation XD You can dress your beefalo with a grooming station if you have bonded your beefalo with the bell and mix n' match its outfits! just have fun! You can only carry one beefalo bell at a time! With beefalo bell, your beef can follow you ANYWHERE! Including the CAVES You can even harvest/pick things up on your beefalo, I find this very useful Using healing foods on a beef is 2x stronger! (a blue cap gives 40 hp to the player but 80 to the beefalo) Feeding a beefalo raw kelp, raw cacti, cooked/raw green and red caps, will result in hurting the beef, while it does a special animation Beefalos are great for late-game exploration, and the taming process isn't hard, just resource intensive. Ornery beefalos are the best beef around imo, they're great for bosses, though I wouldn't recommend them for fuelweaver, but do whatever klei, where's my Beefalo Expert rank???
