Ark Kibble

Kibble are food items used to tame creatures more quickly and with higher affinity, allowing players to save time and end up with better stats on their tamed pet.

The Kibble system was reworked with the ARK: Homestead update and is currently available on every platform excluding the Mobile and Nintendo Switch versions. Instead of Kibbles based on eggs, the Kibbles are replaced by quality-based types: Basic Kibble.png BasicSimple Kibble.png SimpleRegular Kibble.pngRegularSuperior Kibble.png SuperiorExceptional Kibble.png Exceptional, and Extraordinary Kibble.png Extraordinary. The egg-based Kibbles are still in the game and are able to be used; however, they are no longer craftable. Additionally they are categorized into one of the 6 quality-based types.

All Dinosaur Egg.png Eggs (excluding Araneo Egg.png Araneo Egg and Moth Egg (Scorched Earth).png Moth Egg) now have a size and can be used to create a corresponding quality-based Kibble.

In the Mobile and Nintendo Switch versions, most Creatures have a preferred egg-based Kibble that tames the Creature with the greatest taming efficiency and effectiveness. However, using a Kibble that is not preferred by the Creature is even worse than taming with Raw Meat or Berries.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Kibble can be used as food when taming a creature. Although all Kibble types will technically work to tame all creatures, certain kibbles will work better for certain creatures. Using the wrong kibble will take longer in the best case, but can also be only 2/3 as effective as using the creature’s regular food and will instead decrease the taming effectiveness.

Creatures prefer at least one specific class of kibble, but accept also kibbles of a higher class, e.g. Argentavis.png Argentavis can most effectively be tamed with Superior Kibble.png Superior Kibble and better, but Basic Kibble.png BasicSimple Kibble.png Simple, and Regular Kibble.png Regular class have worse results than meat.

The order of effectiveness (in terms of taming duration) in food for taming creatures is:

Food Taming Speed 1 Taming Effectiveness
Kibble.png Preferred Kibble class or better 5x Speed ★★★★★
Raw Mutton.png Raw Mutton 3.8x Speed ★★★★☆
Raw Prime Meat.png Raw Prime Meat 3x Speed ★★★☆☆

Kibble.png Other Kibble 0.66x Speed ☆☆☆☆☆

The food value of a Kibble depends on the Creature and the type of food. For Kibble it varies between 20 and 135. Non-favorite kibbles gives only 1/8 of the taming progress than the favorite kibbles.

Kibble is also used for imprinting baby dinos. During care, they may want to be hand fed a randomly selected kibble, including any kibble that is not their species’ preferred food. For this reason, having as many types of kibble as possible will allow the imprinting rate to increase.

Recipes[edit | edit source]

Learning an Engram is not necessary to create kibbles, and there are no Engrams available for them anyways, just recipes are found throughout the world. Follow the same instructions as when cooking with a Cooking Pot.png Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker.png Industrial Cooker.

In addition to the ingredients listed below, all kibble recipes require 5 × Fiber.png Fiber and a Waterskin (Empty).png Waterskin with at least 25% water in it (any other Water-container works, but will be completely used up regardless of capacity).

When creating Kibbles in an Industrial Cooker.png Industrial Cooker which is hooked up to a water irrigation system, no waterskin or other water-container is necessary.

Fertilized eggs can also be used to make Kibble. Breeding creatures is a great way to generate eggs on-demand.

Cooking these kibbles requires a lit Cooking Pot so in addition you need fuel for the fire. It takes 30 seconds to cook 1 kibble in a Cooking Pot.
