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.

Always put a tracking device on your ichthy. I once had an ichthy called mini on mobile, mini was a good tame, she never failed when I needed her, she was the first way I got to herbivore island, she could take me to all the best hunting beaches, but then one day I thought 'hey mini's such a good tame let's see if I can go around the whole island on her' so I tried I was doing well, I'd already got from my home in the footpaw to the sandspit near the red obelisk, but then mini started to get hungry, I went and looked for food for her and found a moschops, but it didn't give me much meat so I decided to go after a gallimimus it escaped, but when I got back to where I left mini she was gone, no death message no gap in my tame list just gone, for months I searched that sandspit for mini, but to no avail, one day a year after I'd lost her I was running low on tame slots, I knew I had to unclaim her, even now when I visit that sandspit I think I see her but I never do. RIP Mini 🐬💗
I tamed one of these named Diana. She was super fast but kind of stupid: always getting stuck on something. Diana and I formed somewhat of a relationship as time went on. Our bond strengthened she was able to beach a shark for me to kill it. Diana soon became one of my best friends... but nothing lasts forever. As I was leading her back to base via SS Dodo, I noticed a large figure swimming rapidly towards us. Diana made the fatal mistake of not paying attention to her surroundings. I helplessly fire arrow after arrow at it, but it was so filled with rage that they had no affect. I had to watch as MY Diana was ripped to shreds by an oversized fish. That is why my base is now called Fort Diana in honor of the brave soul. Thank you for your time.
Not true. Icthys on mobile still are not attacked by anything in the ocean(unless u attack it). I tested it while taming a lv 80 mosa. Swam right next to it before I attacked. I still think icthys are the best underwater tame. Their fast, they have rider weaponry, and r perfect for taming plesiosaurs and mosas. Tamed easily, as they swim right up to u. They eat dodo kibble, and if u have 3-5 kibble, u can easily get one fast. (-like if this helps😁)
Best for killing scorpions on bottom of ocean floor since they don't take torpor. Scorpions down there will knock any other animals out. Once you kill it, hit it with a pickaxe to gather black pearls. Very useful for the next update with tek gear.
