How do you capture monsters?
I am on the Great Jaggi capture and I got it to start limping and threw the different items at it. All that happended was that an electric shock kept it from moving for a minute. How do you actually capture it? GoldenSun22 - 7 years ago

When the great jaggi is limping, make sure you are positive that it is weak. After placing a shock trap, get the great jaggi to get trapped. Throwing two tranq bombs while it is trapped should complete the quest. If it doesnt, And you still struggle always bring extra traps and if not bring extra tranq bombs. wiimaster2151 - 7 years ago
When a monster is limping or swimming very slow and funny looking (if in water) then you can use a shock trap, (works underwater too) or a pitfall trap (land only) when you have the monster trapped inside either one throw 2 tranqualizer bombs at his FACE. Anywhere else and you would just be wasting them. For just in case purposes bring a couple of extra tranq. bombs. You can also make them with a tranqualizer + bomb casing. dunn_dolo_4life (Expert) - 7 years ago
You can throw tranq bombs at him ANYWHERE. Even up his rectum. As long as no little jaggi or jaggia jump in front to block the hit, you will cap it.
The capture rule: Let it limp, follow him to next area, lay trap, throw tranqs.
If you have a set with capture guru (Bone armor set) while having him paintballed, you will see his icon flash red and white, it means he can now be safely captured. Limping does not mean only then can you capture it, it means he's about to die if you continue swinging at it. You are able to capture monsters before they limp. majsephiro - 7 years ago
To capture, you have to weaken the monster by dealing damage.
To tell when the monster is weak enough, most noticable is when the monster begins limping, seen from when it attempts to escape the current zone, it'll have a different walk/run animation than usual.
If you have the perception skill, it'll inform you when the monster is capturable.
Once you know it is capturable, set either a Shock Trap or a Pitfall Trap. Once caught, throw a couple or few Tranq Bombs at it, hitting anywhere on it's body. Be aware to not miss or have anything else, such as another monster, to get intercept the tranq bomb.
Voila, gotta catch em all. ObLiViOn418 - 7 years ago
When It starts limping, you lay down the trap and lure the monster into it, then you need to biff a whole bunch of tranquilizer bombs at it. And don't forget to bring extra traps and tranq : ) mosterslayer22 - 7 years ago
After doing everything you said, while it is caught in the trap, throw two tranq bombs at it. You can make tranq bombs by combining tranquilizers and bomb casings. You can make bomb casings from other materials (more than one way), but you must purchase tranquilizers (same as you must purchase trap tools to make traps.) Number43 - 7 years ago
