ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
How do I tame a angler? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a angler.
If you only have access to a crossbow, trap it get it low but if it isn’t knocked out but bleeding bad, bring a dead fish to heal it then keep tranqing it with cross bow. It works without harpoon
THESE ARE ALSO FOUND IN THE LOST ISLAND MAP, IT WON'T SHOW UP ON DODO DEX SO UP THIS TO SPREAD THE WORD.
DO NOT use a crossbow for knocking out! Not for all shots anyway.
Use half to 60% of what Dododex recommends for crossbow, then finish the rest with harpoon tranq to avoid killing these guys.
I feel like Dododex is way off with their approximation of a 19% chance of death with a crossbow tranq. I'd say it's more of a 80%+ chance you will kill these with tranq only.
Up so more people don't accidentally kill a lvl150...
- Main use for this tame is using the Angler as a "lure" for other anglers kill anglers for their gel. The gel is the longest burning fuel in the game at approx. 6 minutes per 1 gel
- secondly use is a light source underwater
Pro tip! Anglerfish can be caught in a fish basket!
Sister and I found one max level in the aberation area in Valguero.
We began darting it to tame it.
It did not want to be tamed.
It literally beached itself and died.
I caught the whole thing on clip.
I was laughing but my sister was pissed.
Be really care when knocking these things out from a distance! Unfortunately they don't look knocked out when they are so continuing to shoot darts at them can be an easy an unfortunate mistake to make.
You don’t need a saddle to ride them.
Can be used to pick up 60ish pearls instead of 6 or so by hand. Awesome tame now since the update added this.
Classic knockout tame.
Eats Kairuku Kibble,Raw meat, Raw prime meat etc.
Doesn't need a saddle to ride 'em.
Directly harvests silica pearls.
Bonus : Put points into melee and movement speed.
Other creatures do aggro on you unlike
Hope its helpful.
Easy tame on Fjordur next to swamp island
Use an dolphin to tame because you can shoot off the back and nothing will agro it 👍
You tame it by knocking it out with tranq arrows what more is there to say other than WATCH OUT FOR THAT HUGE SQUID
They are usually aggressive, but once hurt, they will become skittish and try swim away from you.
In crystal islesyou can tames them in the bubble. Stand outside and shoot them with your longneck when they come close to the edge. Easy tame. You can passively tame the eels in the bubble too
many can be found in pearl cave!
but watch out for bears.. and yetis...
They have a LOT of torpor. I tamed a level 10 and it had 1500 torpor
They are easy to get on valguero in the aberration cave. There is a lot of them spawning in the shallow rivers. Just clear out the spinos and crabs. Then just stand next to the river and tranq it. Just be careful. In some of the rivers there's a lot of electric eels also
It's a good idea to trap them if you can then they can't swim away, making the taming process alot easier.
29 70 in val they are in the 1st abrent area in waste high water easiest way to get them.
