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.

Taming Calculator (Passive)

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.
