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 Basilosaurus taming details, get the taming calculator app.
Regens health fast near the surface.
Gradually loses health when deep.
Passive oil generator.
Immune to electrophorus and Cnidaria stun and dismount effects.
Cannot be grabbed by tusoteuthis.
Good fighter, immune to jellies, supernatural healing boost at the surface, produces oil in its inventory, impervious to squid grabs, looks kinda cute too, only one bad thing about it: it gets squashed in the deep! Only slowly but the damage is there!
This creature is so easy to tame. All you need is:
1. An Ichthyosaurus(these guy won't be attack by any water creature, except the jellyfish)
2. Anykind of meat(I suggest using prime meat and don't use fish meat)
3. Find one of these creature
4. Feed it prime meat(It's a long time between the 1st and the 2nd feed, after the 2nd feed it's fast)
And then you get one of these, just be careful of the megalodons, they will attack right after it is tamed. I hope this is useful for you<3
Tame a baryonyx and move close to a basilo with mantas around it. Don't attack but let them aggro on you move away from basilo and tail stun/attack mantas till they are gone. Feed prime meat or mutton and wait forever for second feeding. Once it is hungry again it is only a few seconds between the remaining feedings but it can be 15 minutes between 1st and 2nd.
In real life these were vicious carnivores that would have killed and eaten a human on sight and lived mostly in shallow waters and swam up rivers looking for food they were also twenty metres long, good thing the developers didn't make them more realistic or crossing rivers would be a dream until you have a flyer.
