# Stat Calculator

## How This Ark Stat Calculator Works

Dododex's stat calculator will calculate how a wild creature's stats were distributed in *Ark: Survival Evolved*.

### How Stats Are Distributed in Ark

In Ark: Survival Evolved, a creature is given a **stat point** for each level. Each of these points are assigned to a random stat. With every level, a creature has a 1/7 (14.3%) chance of upgrading each stat. A creature at level 120 will have 119 stat points (starting from level 1).

The **Torpor** stat is increased with *every* level.

### * Movement Speed & "Wasted" Points

For some creatures, a stat may be ineligible for upgrade. For example, wild creatures cannot have their Movement Speed upgraded, so any stats assigned to it will be "**wasted**" and discarded. For swimming creatures, Oxygen is not applicable, so these stats will also be discarded. Even for creatures where Oxygen is upgradable, many players still consider Oxygen stats a waste since it is the least valuable stat.

### How To Use A Stat Calculator

To use this ARK stat calculator, you'll need to first knock out a wild creature. Once it is knocked out, strategic players will look at the creature's stats and determine if it is worth taming. Using this Ark Stat Calculator can help you determine if the creature has increased its stats for a specific stat you're interested in.

Once you've knocked out a creature, simply open its inventory to view its stats. Enter each of the stats into Dododex's Stat Calculator and it will calculate how its stats were distributed. Use the results to determine how many points it received for stats you care about and how many were "wasted."

Ark Stat Calculators should only be used *before* taming a creature. Once a creature has been tamed, it gains more stats randomly (in addition to bonus stats), and it's impossible to 100% accurately calculate how those stats were distributed.
