The whip I used - a Dominax Original Boiga (L) - lost more than half of its TT value during the fight. I also used a Portable Repair Unit (L) to repair my Angel armor regularly for greater comfort. Pygmy Kong has a very high spirit, and it takes time to lower it sufficiently and make an attempt to tame this ape. In my case, two attempts were necessary. Maybe the Artemic Ring (L) I wore helped a bit.
