Ark: Survival Evolved is a survival game with various RPG elements. In order to beat the game, you essentially have to ‘Ascend’ from each Ark and travel to the next one. Most Ascensions are replete with mega boss battles and triumphant cutscenes once you beat the bosses. In this game, it is essential to understand the basics of taming and breeding creatures to take on these bosses. In most cases, the bosses are too strong to take on as yourself (player) or with a group of friends, and you will need creatures to help you in the fight. Some of the most memorable bosses in-game are those that have specific weaknesses to certain creatures and the effort to breed and mutate the creatures to defeat them.
Of the many biomes in Ark, some of the most hostile are the oceans. In order to traverse the ocean, you will need a fast and reliable ocean mount that can stand a chance against various creatures. There are creatures like the Teusotethis and the Cnidaria in the ocean that can grab you and stun you, making your life in the ocean miserable. In order to combat this, the most commonly used creature is the Basilosaurus. In this article, we are going to go over how to tame the Basilosaurus and its many uses in-game.
Ark Survival Evolved Basilosaurus Taming Guide: How to tame it?
The Basilosaurus is a marine creature that can be found in almost every ocean biome. It is a gentle-tempered beast, and this makes it a passive tame. This means your tranquilizer arrows or darts will not help you tame this creature. In order to tame this creature, you will have to swim up to it and feed it manually. Luckily, this isn’t the hardest part of the taming method.
Well, everything in the ocean tends to attack the poor Basilosaurus. In order to tame this creature, you will need to defend it. It is usually surrounded by a pack of Mantas that will be aggressive towards you, the player. Once you kill them, you can begin the taming process. Once you start the tame, keep the following in mind:
- Almost everything that is naturally aggressive will attack the Basilosaurus. You will need to defend the big fish since any attacks will reduce the taming effectiveness of the creature.
- Exceptional Kibble is the best food to tame this creature followed closely by Mutton and Raw Prime Fish Meat. Once tamed, you will need a saddle to ride the Basilosaurus.
Some more tips for the tame include;
- Bring a fast mount that can deal and take some damage.
- Defend the Basilosaurus. It may be a good idea to kill all predators in range before starting the taming process.
- Use Kibble for minimum feeds and the highest chances of perfect taming the creature.
Once tamed, you can ride this creature around and be immune to all ocean effects. This is its most basic utility. It is also a strong creature that is capable of dealing and taking a good amount of damage. Be aware of faster swimmers, though, since the Basilosaurus is not the fastest thing in the ocean or the biggest. Anyway, we hope you find this guide helpful.
