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

Ark Electrophorus

The Electrophorus Beluadomitois an underwater carnivore with a reactive temperament from the Holocene period.

Electrophorus are a large species of an eel that is capable of generating electricity which it uses to shock its prey.

These creatures survive most of the time since they do not provide that much meat for predators and because its ability to shock can be quite painful.

Electrophorus do not initially chase after survivors or tames unless they get too close but once within range, these creatures will turn aggressive and attempt to shock and kill their prey.

Tribes that have tamed Electrophorus have used these creatures to guard their underwater creatures and convoys while also breeding them later on for assaulting other underwater tribes and their tames.

Dossier

Dossier Summary

The Electrophorus is actually considered to be a knifefish rather than an eel and has the ability to create an electrical current that it can use for both defending itself and attacking other creatures or survivors.

These creatures tend to use their electrical shock to paralyze enemies, making it capable of killing smaller creatures alone but when in groups, Electrophorus are capable of taking out larger creatures with ease.

Tribes employ Electrophorus to disable wild creatures or tames of other tribes to make use of the advantage gained which explains why other tribes tend to tame and breed schools of these creatures.

How to Tame Electrophorus?

Electrophorus are passive tames and require a certain approach when they are to be tamed which involves removing their charge before you can feed them.

Approach the Electrophorus on a tame and allow it to shock your tame which will consume its current charge.

Once the charge has been consumed it will visually appear to have no electricity flowing around it the option to feed it will appear.

You may attempt to tame multiple Electrophorus at the same time but be sure to take care as this can be quite deadly and the wild ones will start targeting any others that you have tamed.

Feed the creature its preferred food until the taming bar is full.
