ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Troodons use a unique flavor of Passive Taming. Instead of putting a Food item in your last Inventory Slot, you have to instead allow the Troodon to kill your tames. Troodons gain Taming Affinity by earning Combat Experience, with the amount required reduced to 40% at night. Taming Affinity will only be credited to a player if the creature killed belonged to you or your tribe. A singular tame is capable of providing experience to multiple Troodons. Tests have shown this is unreliable, but can be reproduced.
Experience required: 343 + (32 x Troodon's level)
Experience required at night: 137 + (13 x Troodon's level)
Creatures must not be set as Passive and must be unmounted by a player.
Creatures can be unconscious or pre-damaged (i.e. at 1 Health remaining).
Babies and adults provide the same amount of experience.
Pheromone darts may be utilized to make the Troodon attack a chosen dino, but be careful that other wild dinos do not enter the fight.
There is a "Feeding Interval" of sorts, wherein no Taming Affinity will be gained for subsequent kills. It is not yet known how this is calculated, but 90 seconds was sufficient for a level 1 Troodon.
Taming Affinity will not reset nor is Taming Effectiveness reduced when a wild Troodon takes damage.
In fact, Troodons will always tame with 100% Taming Effectiveness (i.e. 50% bonus levels).
Taming and Experience Multipliers do not seem to affect the Troodon. That said, the table below utilizes the v253.0 hard-coded 2x experience values (although even if the actual amount of experience required and earned is still on the previous 1x values, the taming requirements are the same.
Troodons will not readily aggro onto most creatures that provide a substantial amount of experience. To circumvent this, have the Troodon aggro to the player while standing on top of the creature
More Troodon Taming & KO Tips
This is for all Mobile users so please up because I had to figure it's taming myself and get past a certain problem everyone faces
Okay so listen up,make a small cage with Stone windows and the second layer just walls,you can crouch through the window frame,wear ghillie armor and crouch he won't detect you at all unless ur in his face,now get your tame and lower its health by unclaiming it, once its below 100 (careful not to kill it) claim it back put the saddle and walk it inside (DONT FORGET TO PUT IT AT NEUTRAL) now let the troodon lower its health and before it does the last 2 hits get off (you have to get off because if it kills ur tame while ur on it won't count it) you get off and the troodon will get the kill and get a taming bar,it's recommended at night because they tame faster
Now the easier way to do it,drop baby's in there because baby's won't fight back just make sure it's at neutral and don't worry about its tame bar it drops 0.1 every 1.5 seconds (remember you can crouch through the window frame)
Tames are friends, not food.
up to be able to feed you tribe mates to them for taming
Don’t use gigas or rex to defence your base from players use these smal Bois I swear they are greatest that is not a joke
And sorry for my bad English but hope that was useful 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
My dodo killed the troodon..
Pro tip, do not use lvl 160 dodo to tame.
It is recommended to only tame troodon during the night, as this will double the taming output it gets from killing creatures. (Dododex correction: taming at night is 2.5x rather than 2x.)
Step 1: make a taming pen.
Step 2: put a lvl 80+ baby wyvern into the pen. Knock it out if you want to and lower its health down to almost 0.
Step 3: Drop troodon inside while its eyes are glowing.
Step 4: Enjoy your tamed troodon
My favorite thing about Troodons
Me: All right. On to crafting a Troodon Pen for my Troodon.
*hears squawking sound*
Me: Troodon, what'd I tell you about eating my pets? TAMES ARE FRIENDS, NOT FOOD!
30 secs later
Your lvl 6 trike was killed by your Troodon
Me: Stop Eating My Pets!!!!!
I use these to attack people who attack my base because they are so small they won’t see them if they are on a large tame plus they do torpor and if you have a bunch of them on auto walk they can shred through players if good levels that is I highly advise doing some mutations with them - A.L.N.A
