    One of our most notable helpers, RaptorClaus, will be back to drop off holiday gifts filled with loot, event items, mistletoe, and lumps of coal for all those naughty survivors.  You'll be able to catch RaptorClaus flying across the skies at midnight (game time) on all maps.

    GachaClaus is also returning to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer!  GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in holiday garb and sporting holiday-themed colors. He will be accepting your coal and in exchange will gift you holiday themed items, or you can trade in your mistletoe and coal for a chance at event items. weapons, armor and a brand new event item, Chibis!

    While Winter Wonderland is active, you'll have a chance to collect over 50 ARK chibi petsARK chibi pets are cute miniaturized versions of the creatures you have become familiar with in your travels across the ARK universe.  Chibi's pets can be leveled up by killing specific alpha creatures and in return, you'll be granted additional player levels .  Some chibi pets may be harder to find so you'll have to visit GachaClaus and RaptorClaus to find all the chibi pets!  Can you collect them all?

    AT THE TIME OF THIS POST, TAMING WASN'T PART OF THE EVENT!

    Why no 2x taming? At least for this one event. I love the 2x breeding don’t get me wrong but I’d love to tame my favorite creatures without wasting half of my day.

    Increased rates to 2X Breeding (mating interval, egg hatch speed, and maturation)
        Increased rates to 2X Player XP
        Increased rates to 2X Harvesting
        Increased rated to 2X Taming

    yes taming is not ...oh it is in the event boost ...

    What do they raptor Claus drops look like? I just updated and we got the notification of raptor Claus, but I'm not sure where to find them or tell which is the gift drops. Halloween had candy corn and an orange beam of light, is this one holiday theme and beam color also?

    Do we get to keep the pets or the emotes?..  Really hated events that you work for the fun stuff and then lose them

    when the event is over.

    So long as they don't pull an Atlas on us again and turn what should be a dlc into a different game.

    Like when they added extinction n changed the game from surviving with dinosaurs to star wars

    The problem was that people were not reading the whole thread and were just instantly quoting the posts from the first page. I've edited those posts earlier, so hopefully people stop about it. 🤪

    So a Chibi is what?

    It seems as if all my dinos I spent weeks breeding for colors have lost their color. Is this something that's going to be fixed or are they just gone for good?

    As a former PlayStation Ark player and now a full time Nintendo Switch user I have to say that all these events and new DLCs are quite disappointing. 
     

    the Nintendo fan base has been ignored. Over a year and no word from the company on our version getting any new DLC and the maps that have been out for years. 
     

    at the price it’s listed for on #Nintendo E store it’s a rip off that this game was even released if they had no intention of completing it. 
     

    we need to group together and file a petition or a mass Law suit against  Wild Card studio for false Advertising.

    I'm sorry, but an event that's been done many times before should NOT run into this many problems. Ark shouldn't be running this terrible for as long as it's been out and the price. Wildcard just keeps digging the whole deeper every update.

    1, Will chibis still be obtainable after the event?

    2, Will obtained chibis still exist after the event?

    3, If so, will we still be able to increase max level with obtained chibis after the event?

    I'm a bit confused about the Chibi thingy ... I'm currently lvl 113 and I haven't done alpha rockwell yet so my max lvl is lvl 115 or 116. If I hit all Chibi bonus xp I can lvl to 120 / 121. But what if I do alpha rockwell later on? Will my max lvl still be 135 or 140 then?
