ARK's base taming speed on PC, PS4, and Xbox is now doubled, meaning 1× is as fast as what 2× was previously. Dododex has been updated to reflect this. Use the "presets" dropdown for common multipliers.
For full Astrocetus taming details, get the taming calculator app.
To tame an Astrocetus, you must first knock it out using a Cannon mounted on a Tek Skiff. Use the Tips feature to share your Astrocetus taming strategy!
This thing is the ultimate warship. Its saddle has three gun turrets that consume element when shooting. It has a bomber mode that drops a cluster of bombs below it, consuming ambergris as the ammo. It can pretty much warp you and your nearby allies instantly. Plus it has a platform where you can build structures, similar to the platform saddles we’ve seen on Quetzals, Paracers, etc. The platform space is really small, but definitely workable.
Don't use mek because the astrocetus takes first the torpor and then the damage. The effectiveness will go down.
We tamed a 130 with mek and Kibble and get a 136 -.-
I think the stronger the weapon the more you loose the effectiveness, so the "best" way is to knock out with rocket launcher.
It's the same effect with rock elementals.
Wildcard should repair that.
