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 Troodon taming details, get the taming calculator app.
To tame a Troodon, you must let it kill your tamed creatures. The effectiveness of each creature is determined by how much XP is gained by killing them. Since XP gain scales with a creature's level, higher level creatures are more effective. Babies and adults provide the same amount of XP.
To prevent your sacrifices from killing the Troodon, you can tranquilize it and/or weaken it yourself before feeding it to the Troodon, however, you cannot set it to passive. Taming multipliers do not appear to apply to the Troodon. This calculator is in Beta. Be sure to add a bit of extra XP to compensate for any errors. If your results don't match this calculator, report it.
A level 150 Troodon must be fed 2,072 XP worth of sacrifices during the night.
Their unique ability that separates them from compys is their scouting ability. Basically what it does is search the area for dinos. You can choose what it looks for to. This could be useful for finding hidden reapers when raiding. The only issues are the cool down and and fact the troodon can’t be carried by most animals. Tysm for reading! 🥰
For the best lvl when taming get a male and a female wyvern (both the same type and try to get lower lvl ones) breed them and gat a few eggs. When you hatch the eggs don't feed the babies unless you must. Keep them away from troughs and hope that they starve. For the taming pen make a 6 by 6 square with stone floors then use stone door frames as walls. You only need to go one up with the doorframes but to be safe you might want to turn it into a small room so that if the wyvern can't fly out. Find a troodon and drop it into the pen with an argy or a griffin then get a wyvern and get it down to a low health (40 is probably best) put it in the pen and get the troodon to agro onto it. Make sure the wyvern is on neutral and you are not riding it (lost 5 wyverns while testing things out so don't do those) I've heard that it's best to tame them at night but i haven't tried it yet so i can't say much. When you have your troodon enjoy your new friend!
This is the ultimate combo. Pego, troodons and seagulls
If you want to loot a guy without leaving a trace , here is how you do it.
1: pego problems, send a squadron of pegos to pick pocket your target just to piss them off.
2: seagull stealing, next send your seagull fleet to steal their items while they are chasing the pegos. If you are lucky, the seagulls will take the item they are using or the ammunition for the item
3: troodon terror, lastly, so they don’t know what happened, send your troodons to put them to sleep with their venom attack, they won’t know what hit them and you will walk away with all of their loot, if you are feeling like they have more stuff on them, grab narcotics and put them to sleep even more, then search his body. And boom free loot for the minimal price of lost tames. Hope this helps you pick pocket the alpha tribe!
