The humble dodo, this bird is great for attacking other players. You can use it as biological warfare set on wander grab with a pteradon and infect it. Once it's sicker than clinton drop it in the enemy base. Kaboom creative way to infect enemies and douch bags.
FOR WAR DODO BREEDING!!
Ah yes the dodo! Truly a under appreciated tame! Breed them for size! Start out with a regular set of wild tames (usually size .98 or 1.01) ((don’t level them unless you need to, it doesn’t effect the size change)) breed them, hatch em out and raise them. Only keep the ones that go up a size!! Keep doing this! Once they reach around 2.26 they start dropping dodo feathers!! Keep breeding and rotating out the smaller ones!!!once you get to the higher 2s and into the 3s you can start to ride them. Once you hit 3.5 then you can strap on a decimator bit or a cultivator bit and have some fun. ALSO ONCE YOU HIT 3.5 YOU CAN SWIPE DOWN LEFT SIDE (on mobile not sure if it works on others) AND IT WILL DO THE MOVE FROM THE DODO BOSS! THE BUTT SMASH!!
For small shoulder dodos just do the same breeding but only keep the lower numbers so far I’ve had a .06 scale that rides on my shoulder!
Level melee on them once you get the size you like! Raise a army!! Take over!
Easy way for collecting a bunch of meat, hide, keriten, and even so rapid vertebrae! Set a circle of metal spikes on herb island, put a dodo in it and set on wander and agresive. Now, evrything will run towards it cuz dodo can just quack and other things will Argo on it. Now sit back, get popcorn, get Pepsi, and enjoy the show of a dodo causing brontosaurus to die. 🦤
There should be longrass-bread (cornbread) in Ark. Put longrass and oil in a preserving bin and wait, then you have dried longrass. Then grind it up in a mortar and pestle and you have longrass flour. Then mix with water in a campfire and you have cornbread! Should keep a long while and fill a lot of hunger. This would be awesome. Up so Developers can see!
ARK PLAYER'S I FOUND THE MOST INTERESTING THING ABOUT THE DODO if you have a dino that has a saddle you can pick up the dodo and still be able to ride the dino up this if you think that its cool my mind was blown
These guys are not only a good starter tame, they also have 2 more utilities. They are technically the best distraction tame
(tames that are sacrificed to save the owner's life). They can be be used to escape carnivores such as Dilos, Rexes, ecc.
They are the best distraction tames because they are the easiest ones to tame, and they are also common.
Would it be fun if a attached a whole Lotta sticky boom booms to my dodos and go rex hunting? The rex would be like "oh food" and I would be like "yeah, I call them tacos" and he's like "why" and I'm like "cuz they explosive!!!!!" And he gets blown up and I finish him off with a punch. Like so people can see!
Despite what a lot of people will have you believe, dodos are easily one of the most useful and underrated tames in the game. Not only are they quick and easy meat (or prime meat if you have a tamed seagull shoulder pet) but they make basic kibble, which is easy to produce and satisfies all tames hunger. Use them to feed the pigs for the best mass healing. Also, if you are crossbow taming something with low health/torpor, and a high death risk, you can sacrifice a dodo to heal it on the fly. This let'you go much farther without having to waste engram points and resources on a longneck and bullets/tranks.
