The Daeodon (dee-o-don) is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena Walker, the author of the dossiers, has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creature.

NoteHelena.png
Wild

Daeodon comedentis is the largest known species of Entelodont, an omnivorous family of ancient mammals that are sometimes referred to as "Hell Pigs." Even though Daeodon has as many similarities to modern Hippopotamidae as it does to Suina, I've found that to be a suitable nickname.

Daeodon is as mean as it looks, and any survivor who wanders too close will find that out the hard way.

As an omnivore with a voracious appetite, Daeodon scavenges, forages, and hunts to survive. It has little qualms when it comes to its diet, and that has helped it thrive on the Island's harsh tundra.

Its temper hasn't hurt either, as many would be predators would rather seek out less vicious prey.

Domesticated

Many tribes have made excellent use of Daeodon packs within their war parties, not only because of its fierce nature, but due to its extraordinary ability to rapidly heal itself. I've theorized that this healing factor is why it seems to have such a high metabolism, though what is particularly extraordinary is its capability to share this benefit with nearby creatures.

I have even heard some survivors mention that the Daeodon also has a unique ability to root out Rare Mushrooms as well!

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Travelers of the Ark will typically find Daeodon travelling in packs, devouring anything and everything that gets within sight. Once combat is initiated one or sometimes all of the pack will produce a pheromone effect to buff the health regeneration of friendly creatures. This, boosted by the other wild Daeodon's passive health boost, can make a pack of these creatures a very deadly opponent. It does appear however, if a traveler happens upon a lonely Daeodon, at least upon the traveler hitting the creature, it will run from the fight rather than stick around. The Daeodon is very useful in Boss Arenas to heal your tames.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Daeodon is a large mammal with hunched shoulders and cloven hooves. It has a massive head and long jaws with fearsome tusk like front teeth for tearing both meat and plant matter and rows of molars at the back of the mouth for grinding. With its massive size and nightmarish teeth, it is easy to forget this animal is part of the pig family.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]




This section displays the Daeodon's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Daeodon. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Daeodon will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

This information can be used to alter the Daeodon's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Daeodon's "underside" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

Daeodon

The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Combat[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

Daeodon very rarely travel alone. Groups typically consist of 2-4 individuals with an equal ratio of male to females, making the mate buff a very realistic threat to the survivor. In addition, it is a common sight to see half of the group being a higher level than the other half (i.e. Level 60 male and a Level 10 female).

The winter tundra contains large, and often deadly prey such as Mammoth. This means that Daeodon will often take advantage of their healing abilities to soak up damage in order to stay alive.

Take these key points into consideration when tackling any Daeodon.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Ensure you note the total number of Daeodons in a group before attacking, as well as any other threats that may be lingering nearby (e.g. Direwolf).

If attempting to kill, simply stand on a high position and shoot at it, or use a bola to keep it still and attack it with a sword or pike.

When fighting a group of Daeodon, be sure to kill the weaker ones first in order to reduce the efficiency of the healing buff. This will ultimately make fighting against the higher levels a lot easier.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Use shields if attempting to attack it with melee weapons, while crossbows can be used for long range, aiming for its lower jaw counts as a headshot.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

As they often appear in groups, the player can be very quickly overwhelmed. Furthermore, a larger group means a larger mate and healing buff, resulting in a very quick and inescapable death.

These creatures are also capable of fast speeds.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Long range attacks render the Daeodon harmless, particularly if they are alone.

Taming[edit | edit source]

For general infos about domesticating a wild creature see Taming.

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Daeodon is an aggressive creature; keep your distance when shooting, Longneck or crossbow is preferred. It can be grabbed by an Argentavis so one player can grab it while the other one at the ground shoots it. If playing solo, trap it inside a small house with the help of an Argentavis or using ramps. It cannot fit through doors so you can stand outside while shooting it safely.

Using a single bola will also give you enough time to bring it down if shot in the head (aim right below the chin)

Similar to the Argentavis, Daeodon's rapid healing ability consumes lots of food, meaning that players can start feeding it immediately if they render it unconscious while it is in the middle of using this ability, as its food meter will be depleted considerably. Keep in mind, however, that the Daeodon has an enormous appetite. If you use mutton, it will require much more of it than other creatures typically do, so be sure you have plenty. It is advised to use lots of Raw Mutton and Preserving Salt when applicable to ensure the best possible taming effectiveness and time. It should also be noted that Daeodons have relatively quick torpor drain, so be sure to come equipped appropriately.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

Raid healer: Its AOE pulsating Heal makes it valuable for healing your dinos during a raid on a base! (Level Health and Food) If you want to give it Food faster use prime meat, it gives about 50 Food each and makes the Food go up fast.

Boss Battle Healer: At high levels it can have as much HP as a Rex, with the added bonus of healing, making longer boss battles less stressful when your dinos dip into low amounts of health. (Level Health and Food)

Base Infirmary: The Daeodon's Passive Healing ability will -when turned on- automatically cause the Daeodon to start its healing ability when an injured and allied dino enters its range. When the allied dino is healed, the Daeodon will stop healing again. (Note: There are reports of this ability not working properly)

While healing, the Daeodon's food level will rapidly drain; be sure to bring it well stocked with food to eat. Keep in mind that the amount of dinos being healed by the Daeodon has a direct impact on the amount of food drained - healing many dinos at once can lead to thousands of food level draining every few seconds. It might be useful to carry some cheap kibble (such as dodo) because it provides more food and can be force-fed without cooldown, unlike meat.

The Daeodon recovers food differently than other carnivores. The following table shows its unique food values:

Type Value
Raw Fish Meat 5
Raw Meat 10
Cooked Fish Meat 12.5
Cooked Meat
Cooked Meat Jerky
Raw Prime Fish Meat
Cooked Prime Fish Meat
25
Raw Prime Meat
Cooked Prime Meat
Raw Mutton
Cooked Lamb Chop
50
Kibble* (besides Superior Kibble) 60
Superior Kibble* 120

*Kibble has no feeding cooldown, so entire stacks can be force-fed in a few seconds

The amount of healing gained per tick of the Daeodon's healing aura is directly linked to the maximum health of the dino being healed. Higher HP dinos will heal more HP per tick.

Feces Producer: While in active healing mode Daeodon produces a large amount of feces in a short amount of time. Perfect for those who need a large amount of feces to compost into fertilizer.

Cactus Sap Collector: The Daeodon seems to be a perfect creature to harvest Cactus Sap on Scorched Earth. It can only harvest sap from the low, red-flowered cactus bushes, not the tall saguaro cactus trees.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Daeodon, see the relevant Wikipedia article.

  • Dino Dossier revealed on 10/04/2016.[2]
  • The dossier says that Daeodon has as many similarities to modern Hippopotamidae as it does to Suina, this sentence refers to how many people call this creature "Hell Pig" even though they're a whole different animal, but still closely related to pigs and hippos; both are members of artiodactyl (even-toed ungulate).
  • Although there was mention of multiple Daeodons receiving a pack bonus to their healing aura, there does not currently seem to be any benefit to multiple Daeodons healing at once.
  • The dossier lists Daeodon as an Omnivore, but as of v257 the Daeodon will only eat meat. All berries and crops provide no food value. In addition, Raw Meat provides only 10 food value upon consumption (but cooked meat provides it 25 food value), nowadays the dossier lists it as Carnivore.
  • The Daeodon has a different scale of foods as the rest of carnivores. The order of food value from worst to best: Raw Fish Meat 5; Raw Meat 10; Cooked Fish Meat 12.5; Cooked Meat, Cooked Prime Fish Meat and Cooked Meat Jerky 25; Cooked Prime Meat, Cooked Lamb Chop and Prime Meat Jerky 50; non-Superior Kibbles 60; and Superior Kibble 120.
  • There is a bug with the Daeodon's healing ability that causes it to constantly heal even when there's nothing to heal. If it ever occurs, just remove its food source and let it starve. Once it reaches zero the ability should stop and you can then give its food back. Until the bug is patched up, it is highly advised to NEVER use it. Otherwise you'll have a lot of food wasted. This can be countered if the daeodon has a saddle, as one can jump on and turn off the healing manually. Disabling passive healing may also fix this bug.
  • On ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile, the Eerie Daeodon can only be found in the Dungeons. For use on The Island, it must be killed and revived in order to tame it.
  • Species name means "Eater Dreadful Teeth", that explained its enormous appetite.
