ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Forget using tames to bait one of these, if you’re on Gen2 just use your tek suit to swim, else use scuba gear using cactus broth (so only the eel goes for you).
This method is probably the easiest way to take one of these and requires next to no mats except a dino to get you there:
1. Make a wooden cage
2. Place it underwater
3. Kite the electro and swim over and on the opposite side if the cage so the eel is following you but swims directly into the open cage
4. Close the cage door
5. Float anywhere where you see the taming bar and not ‘open’
6. Chill out and enjoy your new electro
I did this on gen2 and the eel can not break the cage, easy tame, up this so everyone can see.
Good luck 😁
More Electrophorus Taming & KO Tips
You should ride a Basilo,aggro the eels and then feed them.Usethe basilo cuz it is immune to the shock and is a huge TANK to widstand the tank.
I thought they only eat bio toxin
Some taming info:
A tamed tuso can grab these amd a teammate can then feed it bio toxin.
They deal torpor damage.
They have an electric aoe attack that damages and stuns players. While stunned you can feed it if close enough and temporarely use stims and medical brews.
Even with flippers they will outswim you.
Rush in and feed while stunned(use stims and medical brews)
Their electric aoe slows and renders all creutures unable to attack with the exception of the basilosaurus.
Don't build under water near red on i
Made the mistake now I live under the water permanently as they killed my ichthyosaurs and megoladons and my best friend is a starfish
When a titanboa meets a troodon that meets a Cnidaria. Makes your life hell!!
Dear ark please give us a Faraday suit yours truly ~ a stunned survivor
Riot Gear lowers the torpor hit from the shocks while taming.
Best way to tame these guys if your on mobile first tame a itchysauruas
Do it with quest for free saddle then. Just go up to eel and feed it. The eel won’t aggro to you as long as your on your mount
To tame them just deal torpor or lower there health and they be passive to anything
