Anarki

So what did you do in ARK today?

Recommended Posts

PS4 - Private Server - Ragnarok

Logged in, and I was still at my Southern Island outpost. I took my shark out to gather some fish for my pelican, and I came across a event blue level 90 Basil ... so I started taming him up, only to be attacked by a herd of mantas that were not with it when I first swam up to it. Luckily my shark is a badazz, and we quickly killed them all. Then I spotted a bright blue level 150 dolphin, and since I had time before the next feeding of the Basil, I figured I would tame up the dolphin too. 

Then all heck broke loose, out of seemingly nowhere 6-8 sharks were attacking us from all directions. We were fighting them off, and then another round of mantas joined the party. Now I am getting worried, as the HP level is dropping fast on my shark. Finally I get us loose, and we race back to the outpost water pen. I happen to have another shark there, so I swap sharks and head back out, we finish off the remaining sharks and mantas,  but the blue Basil   and dolphin are nowhere to be found. After about 5 minutes of searching I find the Basil swimming right next to another Basil (level 60). This was the first time I've ever seen two so close to each other. But I finally finished taming the blue basil, threw a saddle on it, and rode it back to the water pen at the outpost.

Not far from the pen was a lone level 140 female shark, and she was in some shallow water, so I quickly tamed her up.

I had brought along a teleporter, so I took all of the land dinos from this outpost, and teleported them back to my green OB base. Leaving just the 3 sharks and Basil at the outpost.

Then I stopped by my breeding pen that I built after spawning in 4 random ravagers. I tamed and kept the level 100 and 145, and killed the other two. I've since been keep them in perpetual breeding mode, trying to get some color mutations. Thus far, only a minor color mutation, but the pack has risen to around 20, as I keep anyfemales that are born with a high level. Hopefully they kick out a few colored ones soon, as they are going thru so much meat, it is hard to keep their food bins full.

Then I hoped over to my SE single player map, and took my best Wyvern out for an egg run in the scar. I ended up with about 11 eggs, but only 4 above level 100. the rest were junk. But I decided to keep them to tame my first ever titanboas. Using the junk eggs, plus some I'd kept from previous scar trips, I ended up taming 3 boas.

I then flew the majority of the map, but did not see any Tek Rexes. :(

Refilled the food bins for everyone, and logged off.

I started the LONG process of smelting all of the metal I have. I managed to craft eight air conditioners and a generator with electrical cables connecting them. I then built a ramp from the second floor of my base (where all of my crafting and work stuff will be going on, including incubation and hatching.) to the outside of my base where my dinos are. My next order of business will be to load the forges back up with more metal and to build a dino breeding pen.

Started of by taking the new poison wyvern round for a spin in order to level it up (all into weight and stamina at this point, so it can become my heavy weiggt hauler) at the same time looking for high level thylos and barys. Eventually found a 135 male bary in the mud flats so got it back to base and knocked it out. Grabbed the Ichyornis and went up to one of the pools where the coel gather to fish them for prime fish meat. Theres something satisfying about fishing with an ichyornis, I know alot of people hate them (well the wild ones anyway) but i do have a soft spot for them. Farmed up enough prime fish and tamed up the bary.

Went back out on the wyvern again and after a round or two more in the south decided that I should really suck it up and look for thylos in the redwood forest, been trying to avoid that as I usually end up dying alot hunting thylos this way. Didnt die once but I didnt find any high level thylos either. Went back to base and picked up the anky as the poison had more than enough weight in it by now and did a quick metal run and filled up the forge.

Swapped out to the new lightning wyvern to level it up and did another circuit looking for thylos and barys. No luck, I did see a 130 female bary but decided to find something higher but didnt luck out. Found another 156 stego, this time a male and took it back to the taming pen and knocked it out. Filled it up with berries and logged off for the night, the stego should be fine to tame up.

I did a bit of scouting around around Red Peak in preparation for getting an Argentavis. Not a sucessful outing.

I saw my first untamed Rex (s) and a whole host of other creatures. Magnificent scenery on the mountain.

Next I decided to fly around the swamp for something to do and saw an odd looking creature below me. I flew in close to get a better look and was knocked off of my Ptera by a flying creature. Then a Titanaboa appeared out of nowhere and you can guess the rest. I returned to the area on a spare Ptera but there was no sign of my other one.

Live and learn

I continued the process of smelting up  twenty-five thousand metal ingots using refining forges. I destroyed my camp fires and made an industrial grill. I hatched and raised a female T.rex names Princess. (Question: Her Mom is a 273 and her dad is a 267. She hatched at 204, but that seems incredibly low. Am I right about that?) She’s got mostly orange skin with a white underbelly. She was about 60% finished developing when I logged off. (Question: I checked and maturation speed is not cranked for my game, yet for some reason Princess matured very quickly. I only needed to care for her once and she was at 100% imprinting. This was not the case many months ago when I had a baby carnotaurs to take care if. Have the devs changed something for single player and if so how do I change it back?) I also started building up the third floor. I decided to let Princess roam around the base, but once she’s all grown up I’m gonna need to go on an obsidian run, because lots of the tech I need requires Polymer.

Tamed 3 sabertoots, one died on the way back (they weren't very high lvl)

Then went looking for a good frog, best i could find was a lvl 115.

So i tamed that one while killing all the aggresive dinos in the area. (Pve so cant pick him up before taming)

Its my first beelzebufo, now lvl 171 and so much fun to ride :D

ABSOLUTELY FUMING. Had a bad day on ark after a bad day in general.

Went out on the hunt for high level female thyla and baryonyx again tonight. Lucked out quickly on the thyla, found a 150 female in the south so got it back to base and tamed it up.

Went back out on the hunt for the bary. Had a few hiccups, killing a 140 bary in a skirmish with an alpha raptor for example, but I finally found a 145 female blue event coloured bary in the central canyons and took it back to base to tame all pleased with myself. BUT OF COURSE Ark had other ideas and dashboarded me right outside my base, just beyond the perimeter wall. By the time I logged back in, the game finally decided where I was (I could see the bary attacking the wild trikes before it teleported me to where I actually was) and finnaly got back to where the bary was the trikes had of course killed the bary. I of course went on a bit of a murder rampage on the local wildlife with my ascendant pump shot gun, the trikes were the first to go, no animal was safe ! before logging of in a rage. I had had enough for the night.

ABSOULTLY RAGING !! :Melee_Damage:

Build a trap raft, went looking for baryonix, didnt find any.

Sailed all the way from the south east coast to the north west coast at the snow border.

Tamed a lvl 130 Sabertooth, luckily there was a lvl 10 alpha Raptor nearby that helped with some premium meat. Left my raft there and flew the saber back with my argy.

After that, upgraded my dino gates and 2 lvl of the walls to stone and build another floor below my bird house to park my 3 sabers, doed and frog :)

Finally ! Success ! After last nights baryoynx taming antics I went on the hunt again for a high level female bary. After moving between the mud plains and the central canyons trying to force a spawn, I finally plucked a 140 female out of a brawl with what looked like some stegos and maybe a spino with my wyvern. Managed to get it back to the taming pen without the game crashing on me this time. Grabbed the ichyornis and went fishing for some prime fish meat and tamed up the bary. Now I can breed up some barys and thylos for doing stupid and reckless things with lol

When breeding, ARk only counts the level your dino parents where at after taming, So my guess is the parents of your rex tamed out at around 202-206, and that is why they had a baby at level 204

Tried to find some cool event color dinos, didnt find any good ones.

Took my sabers on a meat run and took a ride on my frog.

Found a purple monkey right next to my base, tried to tame it, it ran away every time.

Put on my ghilly suit but got disturbed by an alpha raptor. Got my therizo out and killed the alpha, but couldnt find the monkey anymore.

My brothers have been on a State of Decay kick, so it's just been myself and the wife. Anyway, decided I wanted to redo some things on our Ragnarok base, so I talked the plans over with the wife when I was at work, and when I got home we went to it. 

Moved all shoulder tames to the breeding/incubation building, destroyed our old community house, while the wife (I'll call her R from now on) used the supplies to build up materials for our new community house. 

We connected our community house to the breeding/incubation building for easier access, and made a bottom floor with a war room for planning the days events (Neebs Gaming gave me the idea on one of there recent videos). Top floor is four bedrooms for each of us to store our own items in and our own beds. 

Made a fire pit outside (R likes things to be homey) and moved everyone's stuff to their respective rooms. We have plans to build a new armory/workshop soon, but decided to go taming instead. Jumped on a couple of Wyverns, and right as we located a 165 Tek Rex I crashed... Took me three attempts to log back in, and then R crashes. 

Took us 45 minutes to fly our way back to our base (luckily nothing died) and we logged in frustration. Tried playing today and was greeted by constant dashboarding... Checked here and it seems like the last update has been brutal for numerous other players. 

Will try again tomorrow.

Xbox Player Dedi. Server - Ragnarok

Logged in after turning SP settings off and used destroywilddinos to reset spawns, since no new dinos were spawning (specifically Ice Wyverns) then immediately went looking for Ice Wyverns eggs (the wife REALLY wants one). Found a lvl 45 one, better than nothing. Went back to the Wyvern trench and spotted a lvl 170 Female Lightning Wyvern, but didnt have much time before work, so I went back to my base and crafted some gunpowder/bullets. I am going to go back today and steal her egg if its the last thing I do! :)

I got everything I wanted from the event - replaced some old kibble dinos with high lvl event ones, Thylas, a yuty, several griffins (two of them 150 wilds), wyvern and possibly drake eggs. Only thing I couldn't find was a colored oviraptor.

Also went to the drake trench on AB for the first time, and omg it's sooo satisfying to actually find high lvl eggs. 

We got almost a fridge full of 145+ drake eggs, and it took like 4 hours with 2-3 people. I have found maybe 10 wyvern eggs lvl 150+ during the ARKaeology and extinction chronicles. Never expected good drake eggs to be that easy to find. I wish SE had better wyvern eggs now...

CrossArkCluster1 - Ragnarok

 

This x2 weekend was a good one! I was able to get 50k+ metal ingots from Friday - Saturday. As well as my first Wyvern Egg on this server. I took my Red, White and Blue color mutated 100% imprinted lvl 300 Argy to the Wyvern Trench and had to fight off 7 Wyverns just for a 165 Fire Egg lmao. I was able to kill a few before finally needing to retrograde via getting them stuck on cliffs and mountains while I hauled the ever loving ass outta there. Got back to base at 1.4k HP out of 10k HP. And that's with the 30% dmg reduction from imprint + 79 armor saddle. Additionally, I picked up another 7 Ovis, 2 being females with the Blue event mutation and 1 with purple. Also got a male that's bright orange but that's not based on the event. 

Finally, I had to fight off my first would-be raider since I jumped to Ragnarok. I come back to base and see a Ptera (I didn't bring any pteras to Rag) parked on the top of my Castle, and a guy in full black flak trying to grapple to a lower floor. He SOMEHOW didn't notice me, so I flew low and creeped up to the other side of the ridge, pulled my spyglass and checked who it was (not surprising as I've been warned about this gentleman via the Alphas). Once I knew, I alerted my tribe. I got one of my farmers to bed transfer over to my base and keypad the turrets off. Like clockwork, the guy noticed the turrets shut off and decided to move in. Then, with 4 digits, the turrets went right back on as he approached the dino gate to the main room. He didn't even bring a shield lmfao. I quickly dispatched his Ptera (WHICH WAS ON PASSIVE) and got a MC pump shotty, 40 shells and 22 C4 out of the ordeal. I'm sure he'll be back though, and i'll have some new additions waiting for him!

Questions:

My baby rex, Princess, is only level 204 while her father is level 267 and her mother is level 273. Is it just me or is that absurdly low? Is level 204 reasonable with parents of that caliber or is that as far in the low end as I think it is?

I play on single player PVE without maturation speed cranked yet she grew up so fast that she only needed to be cared for once and she was at 100% imprinting. I went through this process about a year and a half ago with a baby Carno and I took MUCH longer. What’s changed?

So I decided that I wanted to build a wee outpost in the desert biome of Ragnarok, so I set up shop in one of the ruins and incorporated tge ruins into the build attempting to keep the main features of the ruins intact. Never attempted a build quiet like this but I have been wanting to do this on Ragnarok for ages. Ragnarok seems to be full of these ruins which would be great to incorporate builds into. Finally finished the main structure tonight, think it came out ok but not quiet as well I would have liked. Still got some structural decorations to do such as the balcony to do and add railings to the stairs.

Gone for an open plan type of build, but still deciding on if I would like to build in a few rooms especially on the top floor. Just need to furnish the build now.

Havent quite decided what else I should build at this outpost, but at the very least I would like to build my greenhouse out here and maybe some dino stables. Heck maybe even another bird tower but I just hate the effort required to craft up adobe.
