This creature has the more utilities than any other shoulder pet:
5.It has reduced weight meaning you can carry it and carry less weight on your shoulders.
4.It can carry multiple of each artifact unlike you or any other creature.
3.It can be used to find prime fish meat and pearls, allowing you to get food while on expeditions.
2.It keeps your body temperature stable, allowing longer expeditions into hot or cold areas.
1. It is the cutest creature in Ark!!! Just find a pirate hat skin or a cloth hat and put it on It’s head and be dazzled by cuteness!!
If you start to overheat or freeze to much tame
one of these guys. Because they can control
your temp if you press E to pick it up! Best
shoulder mount ever!
Helpful Tip: Did you know you can hatch eggs using these mfs? First, tame 3 otters, place them in a triangular shape with the egg in the center, then BOOM!! u got yourself a baby dino. Nature's incubator.
Already said but worth saying again - upgrade its melee damage for more cold resistance!
The otter can be very useful for gathering fish meat — it will harvest fish on demand. You can also use it to forage for Silica Pearls, and it will occasionally find Black Pearls.
I’ve read many of the comments and I just want to clarify that the otter insulates you. Meaning yes it will protect you from the cold, however it also helps keep you cool from heat.
Fun fact: If your on mobile, you can just tap on tames and you’ll be able to summon your lost companions.
To the person that lost Otty, I’m not sure if you knew this but if he’s alive, you’ll be able to get him back, he won’t have his inventory items though
Dear owner of Henry otter, he is fine you dont need to worry abput him. He was simply accepted into Woghorts and the disappering you saw was simply him entering fish #13 3/4.
it's really important to feed your otter raw fish meat or it will starve! They don't eat normal meat. Learned the hard way. Never again. RIP Nugget.
Increasing melee damage increases the hypothermic and hyperthermic insulations on the carrier.
