The recent addition of the ARK Fantastic Tames add-on/DLC has introduced a captivating new creature to the Center Map known as the Pyromane. Resembling a large cat or panther engulfed in flames, akin to Scorched Earth's Phoenix, the Pyromane stands out with its unique appearance and formidable abilities. Far from being a mere gimmick, this creature boasts potent abilities and practical uses, making it a valuable addition to any adventurer's arsenal in The Center.

To begin the taming process for the Pyromane, you'll need a potent damage-dealing weapon, preferably a shotgun, and adequate protection like a Ghillie suit, as you may need to withstand a few fiery hits. Once equipped, venture to the northeastern side of the map, particularly around Lava Island, where wild Pyromanes typically spawn.

Upon encountering a wild Pyromane, initiate the taming process by aggroing it towards you with a few well-placed shotgun rounds. Once provoked, your next step is to extinguish its flames. While waiting for rain is an option, a more proactive approach involves leading the creature to the nearest water source. As it plunges into the water, its flames will be quenched, allowing you to mount it and commence the second phase of taming.

While riding the Pyromane, your objective is to reignite its flames. This can be achieved by locating nearby wild dinos and setting them ablaze through attacks. Once a sufficiently large dino is engulfed in flames, utilize the Pyromane's Flame Absorb ability to siphon the flames from the creature and reignite its own, effectively completing the taming process.

It's crucial to note that when provoking the Pyromane, aim to reduce its health to at least 75% to expedite the taming process. Additionally, after extinguishing its flames and mounting it, you have a limited window of 20 seconds to locate a nearby dino, set it on fire, and absorb the flames.

Failure to do so within the timeframe will result in being thrown from the Pyromane, requiring you to restart the process. However, with careful execution, taming this powerful creature should be a swift and straightforward endeavor.

In conclusion, this guide provides a comprehensive breakdown of locating and taming Pyromanes in the Center map of ARK Survival Ascended.
