Ark Chalicotherium Guide (How to Tame, Drops, Food, Location…)

Ark Chalicotherium

A territorial herbivore, Chalicotherium Obsidioeoquus appeared during late Oligocene to early Pliocene.

This beast is very bulky and muscular in form and appears to have a resemblance to a horse.

In the wild, these beasts are quite territorial but not as aggressive as other creatures of the land.

These creatures do not attack right away but if anything in its territory lingers for too long, expect that rocks will be flying at them.

As observed, tribes use these beasts to hurl large boulders at opposing tribes during fights or when defending a location.

How to Tame Chalicotherium?

 A Chalicotherium is tamed passively and you will need a couple of items a Ghillie Suit (Ghillie Armor set) and beer. You can use stimberries instead of beer but it is less efficient and would take much more time.

It would be best to go behind the wild Chalicotherium to give it a beer so that it will not collide with you when it walks since this can trigger aggression.

If you aggro the Chalicotherium or it gets aggroed by wild creatures, this can halt the taming process.

Continue to do this until it’s taming bar is filled.

Haven been playing pc games for as long as I can remember. I am no pro frontline man but when it comes to Support Logistics and base Management that’s where I excel in the games that I play. I usually play RTS, Simulation, Management, MOBA’S, RPG’s and the usual FPS and Survival.
