Lazarus Chowder is a dish in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be created at a Cooking Pot Cooking Pot or the Industrial Cooker Industrial Cooker.


Consume it to slow your rate of oxygen consumption to 15% of normal and gain a small amount of stamina regeneration (even though the in-game description points toward health regeneration). This effectively allows the player to stay underwater 6.66 times longer than normal, and allows stamina to regenerate without having to leave the water, which is particularly useful to reach underwater caves, especially if you have no points in Oxygen Oxygen and no aquatic mount.

Be sure to include a Waterskin Waterskin, Water Jar Water Jar or Canteen Canteen with at least 25% water in the Cooking Pot Cooking Pot. Lazarus Chowder takes one minute to cook in an ignited Cooking Pot.
