Anarki

So what did you do in ARK today?

Recommended Posts

Had a busy couple of days. Yesterday we had some hits and misses. Started off looking for a thorny dragon, but after 20 minutes of looking just started gathering wood by hand. While gathering we saw a 187 morellatops stuck so we decided to tranq it. Threw some mejos in it, set a timer, and continued gathering wood. Went back to it with a few minutes left just in time to see a raptor eat it :(

After that we went in search of a carno. Spotted a 187 not far from our base. Started kiting it to my taming pen and my jerboa started crying about a sandstorm, so I had to kick in my raptors turbo to loose it then get to cover. After the storm the carno had vanished :( We were almost out of time at this point so we decided to build a well and lay down some crop plots. 

Today was a little better of a day. Started by gathering rare mushrooms so we can get some kangas tamed tomorrow. Then we went searching for another carno, but found a 187 sabre instead. Kited it to our pen, got it in and my jerboa started crying about a sandstorm, again. Luckily the sabre was still there after the storm. We tranqed it and threw some meat and salt in it. 

While the sabre was taming we decided to tame a moth, its lvl sucked but i figured we could use it for eggs incase they ever gained a use.

While the moth was taming I gathered some chitin for the saddle, and came across a 150 event anklo(i think it was event, never saw the color before) So i kited it home and tranqed it and threw a tent over it.

We also got some decent drops, best was an ascendent 87% kanga saddle bp :D

Final thing for today I used the moth to get to the red obelisk so we could thow up a 1x1 hut with 2 beds so we could transfer servers quickly, then i went to the island and aberration to feed everyone. Boy do low lvl moths suck, had to land for stam 5 times each way and it wasnt that far away, lol

Plans for this weekend are to tame carnos and a thorny dragon, then find a place to call home with high wind %. Tonight I hope to head to the island and hatch some anky eggs, we have 34 precooked so Im hoping theres a few with mutations

 

Is this an event anky, or normal. Ive tamed a ton of ankys in my career and have never seen this color

The colours seem different but do remember each map has different colour schemes prevalent

Started tonight off by going in search of another griffin. Am trying to build up to my first wyvern and would like a few spare griffins just incase egg stealing goes wrong. Flew across to the canyon where my griffin trap was. Lucked out and found a level 145 along with a level. Lured the 85 away and killed it before returning to lure the 145 back to the trap, took a wee bit of coaxing but finally aggroing it away from the stego and the diplo it was attacking. Downed it with 300hp to spare, thought I would actually kill it as it was kind of bloody before I even got it in the trap. Tamed it up with prime meat and took it back to base.

 

Ended up going on a tour of @DJRone89s base and needless to say I was jealous. Got a long way to go before I get to that point if I ever do. Great hospitality too with some custom recipes for the journey home :D

Started to plan out a few expansions back at base. Now that I have the ramp connecting the two levels of my base I marked out the rough area where the begining of the pier would go. Also trying to find the space to stick a breeding barn (also part of the wyvern plan) on my upper level but I am beginning to run out of space there. Tested out a few areas with thatch foundations but its very tight, trying to avoid building on ceilings and pillars but that might be unavoidable. Might have to build it next to the water or repurpose another building which I would rather avoid. Decided that it was a predicament that would need to be solved for another night.

I played for about 4 hours this evening and achieved absolutely nothing. Instead gave 2 base tours and went on one myself. Picked up a high quality gasmask blueprint though so that will make underwater journeys much better.

Was planning to do boss battle soon so we set out to do pack atifact and hunter artifact

First:It was 3 of us all on 200 plus wolves each 100 medical brews, stack of meat,fur amor, and scuba tank 

it was first very nevre racking in water as wolves had limited oxygen and sarcos and piranas were strong, we finnaly made it and i have no idea how but only died once\

we got 2 and got out safely

Second:my one tribemember had to go so it was only 2 us

thank dodo there was no water 

we started running through when out of nowhere a 145 meg jumped at us

my tribe leader Shouted WING IT

i started running to only look back to see his wolf being picked up

he was killed by other things so i raced back 

but then i saw the meg runing away

apparently my leader with loads of melee damage started hitting it with a club and put up the torpor enough (i still dont understand)

so i passive called his wolf and made it follow me back up we then went back it after healing up this time MUCH easier with no meg

we easily got it and went back up 

we waited quite abit and went it again 

we traided no 1 for the labryth one as that for us is way too hard

so we probbaly gonna do it again but us knowing what to do this time it will be 10 times easier

as if we do it again we can atleast do 2

We didnt get too much accomplished today. Finally tamed a Thorny dragon, only a 105 but stood up with almost 500 weight. Then we spent the rest of the time looking for a sabre, carno and kanga. Struck out on all 3. Before we quit we tamed a 75 Paracer (this time with tranq arrows, lol) Figure we can use it as a pack mule and eventually for golem taming.

We then hopped over to the island and hatched anky eggs. Hatched 15, kept 4 that had mutations and culled the rest. 2 had obvious color morphs, the others I havent found yet nor have I figured out the stats yet. 3 of them had almost 10k hp after imprint so Im going to start s line of battle ankys just for fun, lol

This one got the green spikes 

y4mXHrq2lKQY3A_N2Glt3dM11R0kQAkE1KiCxwoA

 

And this one the metallic pink feet

y4mmsEX3kkmCSdaykc5qansnwlK5kJyRYKlIKGsH

 

We plan on getting on for a few hours and I think we will start looking for a more permanent address before we have too much more to move, somewhat closer to red obi with atleast 85% wind

Not a lot of time so Ill give the short version. Today we got a lot done. We tamed a 175 wolf, 127 thorny dragon, 210 thorny dragon, 3 lvl 3 vultures, 1 lvl 210 vulture and a 225 carno. We also built a fabricator, generator, fridge and ac unit.

We scoped out a spot for a new base, near the red obelisk. Theres a spot with 85% wind and there are tons of resources, especial pearls and crystals, but plenty of wood, thatch, stone and cactus sap to build a good base. Plans for this week are to gather and build enough to get moved down there, so a basic 10x10 structure as well as a dino pen. Plus we plan on taming an argent to help with the move, mainly to carry our squishy gathering dinos there as its a dangerous gauntlet getting there.

Today i continued preparations to get to the Gamma Center Arena. I had taken a two week hiatus from Ark so here’s a rundown of what I had been doing. One of the items necessary in order to get into the arena is a Tusoteuthis Tentacle. I had no idea how much of a threat a Tusoteuthis would be so instead of charging in head fires I came to this thread and asked for advice. At the time I had a Baryonyx, Sarco, Dunkleosteus, and Megalodon. All are over level 200 except for the Bary who is at 160. I was told that hypothetically I could take down a mid-level Tuso if nothing went wrong, I.e no other big scary things showed up.

Naturally Ark never goes according to plan so I basically said ‘screw that I need to tame more things.” I figured I’d try to tame a Mosa but the only ones I could find were an Alpha Mosasaur level 50 and a level 20 right next to each other. I looked around more and found tons of Plesiosaurs, some of which were high level so I decided to settle for a plesiosaur. I tamed up a level 150 and she tamed out at 216. Not bad at all. I then decided to use this Plesiosaur, whom I named Emma, to tame up another Plesiosaur whom I named Nessie. All and all this probably took about five or six hours.

I figured this army would be the one to take on a Tuso: two plesiosaurs level 200+, a Megalodon 200+, a Sarco 200+, a Baryonyx 160, and a Dunkleosteus 200+. I’m gonna have to hope that’s enough.

To end off the day I decided to go and try to find a Tuso, not to kill it, just to make sure I could find it. I took out Nessie and traveled to the edge of the map and dove downwards. Have any of you gone to the ocean edge of the center map? Here’s some advice. Don’t. That place is the poop that nightmares are made of. I was frankly terrified and really wanted to make sure that I didn’t get snuck up on. I never did end up reaching the bottom, but I did end up finding a Tuso. It was an Alpha level 55. Needless to say, after already being terrified of my surroundings, once this thing started coming after me I decided: “Nope. Bye.” And booked it the hell out of there.

so here’s my question, since I went back to base before I could find a regular Tuso: A. Do Alpha Tusoteuthis drop regular Tusoteuthis tentacles? And B. If so can the aquatic army described above kill an Alpha Tusoteuthis level 55?

Today started as a gathering day in preperation for the move. We want to prebuild a 10x10 building as well as a moderate sized pen before we make the move. My wife farmed stone/sand while i got wood and thatch. While gathering we spotted a lvl 30 morellatops stuck on some rocks so I decided to tame it for water storage/cactus sap gathering. For only a lvl 30 it had over 500 weight after being tamed which I was impressed with.

After clearing out all the trees near our base we decide to take a trip with the ankys to the nearby mountain to gather metal to make the ascendent sickle since we needed fiber for adobe as well. We came back with just enough metal for it so we throw it in the forges.

While waiting for the metal to smelt we went on hunt to find a high lvl wolf, sabre or carno to pair with the ones we had. We ended up finding something much better, a 195 Female Albino megatherium :D So i pop a tranq in it to agro it and start kiting it to our taming pen while my wife runs ahead to kill any bugs in the path. I get it almost to the pen and a jug bug appears out of nowhere and the megasloth goes beserk, so we fall back till it calms down and It wipes out all dinos that were around, pigs, wolves, ankys and doeds and even a parcer before it calmed down. 

We finally get it in the pen and after what seemed like forever had it tranqed. At this point we were short on time so I hoped over to this island as it was starving and slaughtered one of our sheep for mutton and I made the saddle. She stood up with just shy of 8k hp and a hair over 1200 weight. And now we dont have to make that sickle, lol

Plans for this week are to continue gathering for the move and find a mate for the megasloth so we can breed super sloths. We wont be playing this weekend as its my 5 year wedding anniversy so we are driving up to Bar Harbor, ME for the weekend, so we need to get as much done as we can before Friday

I would make sure you level up and fully heal all of your water dinos before going on the Squid hunt.

 

Its been a while, but I seem to remember that you actually get more tentacles from an alpha, that you do from a regular squid. But of course they are much more dangerous. so Risk vs. Reward.

So I went on another squid hunt today. I don’t think I’m gonna risk taking on an Alpha Tuso. It took me a solid hour and a half, but I did end up finding a Tuso. The only problem is that it’s right next to a Mosasaur. Both of them are fairly low level: 55 and 60. I think my aquatic army should be fine. I’m strategizing the actual poop out of this. I’m going to ride Nessie in and try to make sure that she is the one that the Tuso grabs. I’ll then hop on Bruce, my Megalodon instead of my other Plesi because the turning radius is more manageable for the plesi AI than it is for a player riding it, which is not the case for the Megalodon. I’ll also be bringing a couple hundred stone arrows and three crossbows in case I want to sacrifice my own safety for some extra damage during the fight.

I also may be live-streaming it but that’s tbd.

Congrats on the Sloth! It will be a big help with cactus gathering for adobe.

 

Congrats on your 5th as well! Bring your shorts, should be hot this weekend

Good luck .... IF you have the time, I would suggest taming a few extra sharks prior to going after the Squid.  Let them go in first to get grabbed by the squid, while your heavy hitters beat the snot out of it.

I was thinking about doing that. Might not be a bad idea.

Not much really happened tonight other than a mass gathering of resources and crafting of stone structures in preparation for another crazy build which is sure to get out of hand. As I am still undecided what to do about my breeding barn conundrum, I decided instead to start off building my dock area. Built out the pier to a reasonable length, might make it longer at some point but it will depend on the next stage of the build. The rafts at least are now docked nicely instead of being moored randomly just off shore.

Then started off the outer dock yard wall. I plan to have outer wall circle off the cove around the peir, with a behomoth gateway at the entrance of the docks to allow access for rafts and water dinos, might even have a few lighthouse type towers at either end just to add to the aesthetics of the structure. It was at this point that I remebered why I hate builds like this. Trying to snap pillars off ceilings too close to each other is challenging and infuriating with the way the build system snaps thing. Got the initial foundation down and started off the pillar walls out to the first drop off shelf. Didnt fancy starting the deep water diving required for the next section of the wall tonight as I have yet to unlock scuba gear so its going to be free diving until I get a hold of some.

Oof, so tonight I went off on one more scouting mission to make sure I could find that Tusoteuthis that I had found earlier. If I was able to find it I would get my aquatic squad amen go after it. That’s just not what ended up happening...

it seems like every time I gonna scouting for Tusoteuthis i find a DIFFERENT tuso. The first time I found the alpha, then I found the good level 55 that I’d be  willing to kill, but tonight I found a level 150 which is great if I’m able to find it again I’ll go tame it, but that sucks because there’s non wagbin hell I’m gonna try and kill that thing. Does anybody here have a good strategy for trying to find Tusoteuthis? It’s become a bit of a struggle...

Thank you, I've always loved the mega sloths, surprised I waited this long to tame one this go around. If I can find a mate I'm going to make a sloth army, lol. They will for sure come in handy on the new base, we decided we are going to make some type of pyramid, with crops along the outside as well as plant x and turrets for wild wyvren defense. Never did a pyramid so it will be interesting and fun

The heat here has been horrible, I think we are going to spend a decent amount of time in the pool. Would hit the beach but the ocean temps are still ice cold around here till about mid August.

 

Today we started with some gathering for the new base then we started laying down foundations. Initially its just going to be a 10x10x2 square box just to get moved in, but we will soon change it into a pyramid. Ended up being short on foundations (favorite s+ feature) because I had to stack some due to uneven terrain but we also got the walls up. Ended up building below a cliff, the base is only in 40% wind but on to of the cliff is 85% so I plan on putting a wind generator in both zones.

Tomorrow we plan on finishing the structure and maybe getting started on a pen, but we probably wont have time to actually move in until after we get back from vacation. At this point Im probably going to borrow an argent from our Island server to help with the move then bring it back after the move
