Took a run though the swamp. I got bitten by a titanaboa. I died, respawned and saw, you otter (lvl 3) killed a titanaboa (lvl 30). Do not underestimate. Unfortunately, 2 seconds later I see, your otter (lvl 3) was killed by a titanaboa (lvl 10) one up for my harry otter?
Otters are one of the most useful creatures in the game. I’m actually not exaggerating. Either it’s intentional or a bug, but the otter can carry MULTIPLE artifacts. This means, if you are careful enough, you can bring an otter, filled to the brim with artifacts, to an obelisk, allowing you to get a lot of blueprints, but best of all, tons of soothing balm. This means you can make SOOTHING BALM literally EXPENDABLE. Now you won’t ever have to worry about taming creatures!
P.S: They also keep you really warm. With hide armor you can enter the frozen plains.
Once I went out to tame Raptors, or... try to shoot one from the safety of my raft... but then I saw a lil otter, my heart melted!!! Then I realized, the OTHER things that were in the area included: A baryonyx, a pack of 7 Raptors, A theri, and sum other aggressive friggin things, and the otter STILL LIVES THERE. Soooo many trikes and parasaurs died to the pack of FREAKING 10 RAPTORS! But the otter. Just lives. How.
Mobile player, I was doing dodo hunt (kill 250 dodos. Not as easy as it sounds) with my Griffin and my otter, and my otter FELL OFF MY SHOULDER and landed in water full of mega. Then I start getting messages, "your Harry otter (otter lvl 57) killed a megalodon (lvl 30)" I got at least 5 of these. Go OTTERS!
These little guys are so much easier to tame in mobile, but harder to find. You still need to kill a megipirahna, but you don’t need to grab its corpse to feed the otter. After harvesting its meat you can easily walk up to it and feed it until it’s tamed. It doesn’t run away in mobile, and I’m sure you can use any fish meat.
