Taming Solix requires knowing how to kite at least passably, using [Concussive Shot] and [Ice Trap], then [Deterrence] when taming. It should be noted that Solix has an annoying habit of skirting past traps with his small hit box.
His Blazing Speed buff makes him immune to taming. Hunters must continue to kite him until the buff wears off, then attempt the tame.
If Solix's energy meter (the yellow bar) empties, he will die.
It is suggested that the tame should occur when Solix's energy bar is between 25 and 30.
