The Tek Cloning Chamber is an end-game tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is used to duplicate creatures.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Cloning Chamber is powered by the Tek Generator. Additionally, Element Shards are needed to clone creatures. The amount of Shards needed for cloning a creature depends on the creature type and creature level.

Cloning time ranges from a minimum of 40 minutes to a maximum of 4 days (times are approximate). Cloning time also depends on the type and level of the creature you want to clone. The cloning process is fully automatic and does not require any player actions during any part of the process, except at the start. You just need to place the creature on the platform. The "Clone..." options show the required amount of Element Shards. Once the shards are placed in the cloner's inventory you can start the process with the same option.

The inventory holds up to 48000 Element Shards, allowing Dinos up to level 450 to be cloned.

Formulas[edit | edit source]

The global multipliers can be found in the blueprint /Game/PrimalEarth/Structures/TekTier/TekCloningChamber.TekCloningChamber_C, the values per creature are located in their blueprint (..._Character_BP_C).

Cloning Costs[edit | edit source]

The Cloning Cost is calculated the following way:

Variables Description Value
ElementCostPerLevel Multiplier different for each creature
ElementCostPerLevelGlobalMultiplier constant global multiplier 5500
CharacterLevel current level of the creature whatever your current creature level is
BaseElementCostGlobalMultiplier constant global multiplier 2500
BaseElementCost Multiplier different for each creature

Cloning Time[edit | edit source]

The Cloning Time is calculated the following way:

Variables Description Value
Clone Cost Result of the previous formula different for each creature
TimePerElementShard constant global multiplier 7
BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier Higher number decreases (by percentage) time needed for baby dino to mature 1 (on official without events running)

Calculator[edit | edit source]

You can check the cost and time you will need to clone your creature with the following table:

Element Cost Per Level
Base Element Cost
Clone Cost Element Shards
Clone Time seconds =
*) BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier can be configured in the Server configuration.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • When the generator powering the Tek Cloning Chamber has both Element and Element shards within it there is a bug that will cut the power for a split second when the generator switches between Element and Element Shards. This will cause your cloning process to stop. Avoid this by using one or the other in the generator, not both.
  • If you change your tribe name during the cloning process the cloning will stop
