For full Otter taming details, get the taming calculator app.
To tame an otter, kill some fish, approach the otter, and then use the action button to feed the fish to it. Level of fish does not impact taming. The Sabertooth Salmon is by far the most effective fish, followed by the Piranha and the Coelacanth. Please ignore timing and effectiveness as calculations are not yet complete.
Once upon a time there was a otter named Otty, he kept me warm the first day we met. I gifted him a helmet as I put him around my shoulder. From going cave hunting to farming oil rocks in the snow. It was a dark and stormy night while we were on the way home from an oil run, suddenly a bright golden light shined upon the red forest and Otty, Argy and I decided to grab it. Alas, we didn't know it was in a pool of water as I was dismounted into a rex by the pond. I ran with argy, expecting to throw otty of my shoulder when we got home. That's when I realized he wasn't on me and found out otters dismount when you enter water. The worst part is we never got a notification that he died. MARK MY WORDS OTTY, I WILL FIND YOU ONE DAY! May we meet again. ~
Fun fact: If your on mobile, you can just tap on tames and you’ll be able to summon your lost companions.
To the person that lost Otty, I’m not sure if you knew this but if he’s alive, you’ll be able to get him back, he won’t have his inventory items though
To tame these cute creatures you'll need to pick it up with a argent and put in a trap. And gather fishes do not harvest the fish just give it the whole fish. And this is what I did and I have two cute otters.
I once had an otter that I named harry otter , he was a great otter he got me all the silica and black pearls I needed, he once saved me from a megalodon , he kept me warm to, he was a great companion I took him almost everywhere,but one day I was farming pearls with him I threw him at a fish to get pearls from it but instead he disappeared I looked and looked for him only to not find him but uneven got a message that he was dead, he's still out there somewhere, I still look for him to this day. #prayforharryotter
