Took a run though the swamp. I got bitten by a titanaboa. I died, respawned and saw, you otter (lvl 3) killed a titanaboa (lvl 30). Do not underestimate. Unfortunately, 2 seconds later I see, your otter (lvl 3) was killed by a titanaboa (lvl 10) one up for my harry otter?
Otters are one of the most useful creatures in the game. I’m actually not exaggerating. Either it’s intentional or a bug, but the otter can carry MULTIPLE artifacts. This means, if you are careful enough, you can bring an otter, filled to the brim with artifacts, to an obelisk, allowing you to get a lot of blueprints, but best of all, tons of soothing balm. This means you can make SOOTHING BALM literally EXPENDABLE. Now you won’t ever have to worry about taming creatures!
P.S: They also keep you really warm. With hide armor you can enter the frozen plains.
