So what did you do in ARK today?


Recommended Posts

So this morning I went into the blue zone on my bred and imprinted Spino and tamed myself a lvl 68 female Megalosaurus! Really quick tame, but for some reason aggros ravagers, raptors, scorpions... ugh! That is really frustrating. Spinos don't aggro those, even though they have worse stats...

So tonight I think I'll tame an at least 100+ male and maybe a higher level female to go get a Drake egg, because that was the reason I wanted a Megalo in the first place! But now that I realize that they aggro small things like ravagers, and more importantly other megalos (because from the wiki and watching videos I've noticed a lot of Megalos down in the red zone. If I can't find a 100+ male and female tonight, I'll probably go down on my Spino.

Well I logged in and lagged out for about 5 minutes, then rubber-banded all over the place so I quit and went to work where it's less stressful.

PS4 - Private Server - Ragnarok   No new color mutations on the ravagers last night, so all those babies got killed. I then was flying around, and I saw a whole group of high level even

My (and the parents') first gigantopithecus baby. Parents tamed on lvl 204 and 216, baby came out 228. Lucky day for me and the parents. You can see them in the background watching over their daughter

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

My guess is that you were either knocked off by a flying Thyla or Purlovia. Hate those things.

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! :)

 

Update on my last post.

I found the lvl 170 Lightning Wyvern egg! Then it only got better! I also found a lvl 150 fire and a lvl 190 poison :) The wife got on after I found them and we hatched the lightning for me and the fire for her. Went to go get milk and got lucky again. Found a low lvl Alpha Wyvern! We have plenty of milk.

Also tranqed a 140 pink female Parcer that wondered up to my base for the giggles. All in all a good day. Hopefully my lucky streak continues!

ArkCrossCluster1 - Ragnarok

 

Last night wasn't super productive. I ended up showing a new tribe mate a few places around Ragnarok to start a solo base, surveyed the dozen or so Spinos at the Grand Canyon and tossed up a few more turrets at my base. I also didn't realize that there were Wyverns anywhere other than the Volcano trench near the Highlands. But apparently there are more on the South West end of the map. Which means I may be able to find another way to securely get eggs with an Argy or Griffen. Exciting! 

 

I think i'll spend my few hours tonight throwing up some Behemoth Gates near my Castle for a large dino storage yard, but won't actually fill it with anything until I've built a few more pillboxes. Because you know, the streets ain't safe :)

PS4 - Private Server - Ragnarok

 

Last week I decided I wanted some Ravagers, but since I have no way to tranport my Ravagers on the AB map, (because I cannot survive the surface where the OBs are, plus AB map sucks, and I refuse to play it any more.) So I spawned in some wild random Ravagers. I managed to take the two best females and male, and killed the rest. I then built a breeding pen, and have been breeding the ravagers non stop hoping for color mutations.  On Monday I got a red body,  a green spine, a gold/yellow spine mutations. Then last night I fly over to check on the breeding pen, and I see a bright blue body as well as twin blue spine mutations.  So I begin to land in the pen, but before I can freaking flying pego steals from me, and my ravagers go crazy. Somehow this agros the non-claimed ravagers in the pen, and my claimed ravagers kill all of the unclaimed ones before I can even claim them. Gone are the blue mutated ones, and who knows what other ones were in there. ??

Frustrated, I took off on meat runs and to check on the dinos on all my bases/outposts, and then logged off.

Just a quick word of warning about the sourthern wyvern area. While the wyverns are in the area, the eggs only spawn inside the crystal cave. In my opinion anyway, its not a really ideal place to be nicking eggs especially with a griffin, not enough space to maneuver with the griffin and get the dive you need to gain speed.  Maybe I am wrong and its easier than I think, but I much prefer nicking the eggs out the highlands.

Ohhh thank you. That's good to know so I don't have to lose a dino getting trapped in the trench haha.

I agree .. unless you have an OP dino like a full grown Battle Wyvern, I would not try to steal eggs inside the actual cave where the eggs are. Hard to get in/out, but very easy to get trapped and killed.

Since you react to basically all of my posts, how do I react to one? I'm on PC and there doesn't seem to be any option to do so.

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.

If you’re willing to put in the effort, you might be able to make it into more of a Italian villa by raising the roof and making it to some points. However, if you want to leave it as it is, you could make a wonderful kitchen and living room downstairs/workshop downstairs. As for the second story, you could cut out a portion of the room and make a landing pad for some flyers. The rest could be a living space with a bathroom and maybe a few bedrooms. However, the opportunities of the space are endless.

Or you know.. a microraptor, which naturally fly

I dont know about that haha. You seen thylas ambusing out of trees ? I have had to pull of some crazy maneuvers to avoid thylas which had apparantly developed the ability of powered flight. Also microraptors technicallly shouldnt fly ? More of gliding no ? But then again I have seen microraptors do more than glide lol.

Reminds me of the drake trench in Aberration, very confined spaces and angry drakes/wyverns.

I'll probably leave it as is at the moment. With plans to do more maybe and expand at some point. Kinda of planning to have a workshop and kitchen (fridges and cooker) downstairs and a spawnpoint/bedroom and storage for various bps and what not up the stairs. Plan to have the flyers separate in a purpose built tower avery close by. Thanks for the advice :)

That looks awesome man! Many people might not realize but he's on Xbox so its a lot harder to do complex builds (even excluding mods, which we dont get) 

Ill have to come by and visit next time im able to get some time to come back to Ark :) (and you know.. actually join the server..)

 

Edit: Who else thinks "Thumbs Up" reaction shouldn't be "Thank You"?

Abberration
 
It is been 3 weeks since i wrote here. Got Vacation and many things to do with family. But got enough time for Ark. As my Aberration base is nice now i started to make more fertilized Eggs from Carbonemys cause i wanted to tame more Karkinos. I thought about 20 eggs. My kid wants 50. Hatched 9 fert. eggs and breeded them. Got 13 Turtles, but only 5 are female. Now i have too much males. But i dont want  to kill them and they are now blocking the way at the base. Took the low level Rock Drake and got to get the first Rock Drake Egg. The Low Level Drake almost died on the way. Got to kill a few Rock Drakes on the way and spotted a nice 155 egg. As i took it 4 rock drakes instantly were around  me. Luckily no one was higher then 20. But my RD was down to 1k Health. back to base i look around where to breed the egg. My base was 7 x 7 and 8 high at this time. The breeding house was not nearly done. For the Turtles i build a few air conditioner on top of my house. But as it was 2 x breeding and maturing at the time i crafted many other air conditioner and set them on top of my house. I build on top of the 7 x 7 house a 11 x 11 breeding house with a behemoth gate entrance. The House is now ugly as hell but i can safely breed. From the RD Egg i got Twins with nice blue Feathers. As i looked all Predator Movies with my Kid at Vacation i callled the First Drake Dutch and the 2nd Mike. Took Dutch for me Only and made him my Egg Gatherer. He is now at 380 Meele and almost 10 k health. With him i get more Eggs. Many low Eggs. But found  a Level 160, 165, 165, 185 and 185. Didnt know official is now higher then 180 with RD Eggs. Breed all of them and have now a nice little Army. I took my boat and tried to tame a few Karkinos. Cause from the turtles i now get Eggs and can make Kibble. I didnt tame them a few weeks. So i was able to kill 8 Karkinos in a Row. Problem with my boat is that the Catapult is to near to the taming pen. So it is firing a little bit higher asexpected. That and the Karkino always looking in the wrong direction let me kill so many. But finally i was able to tame a few. 120 was the highest i was able to tame. Now i am at 11 Crabs in my base. One for me and one for my kid are standing at the base. The Rest is on top of the breeding house. Cause for fast building i made the breeding house from wood. I have no Roll Rat. So i wanted  a blueprint from a chainsaw. I Found no one on Ragnarok who wants to trade with me. So i take my Low Level 106 Spino from the Base and uploaded him. Searched for a Scorched Earth Map. Started there and was instantly killed by a golem. I needed almost 10 lifes till i got to the green obelisc and could download spino and saddle. Searched a little spot to build. Found it near 55 55 at the dry River. Killed all i could with the spino to get fast levels. Build a 4 x4 hut. Over the the next days i levelled to 70 and opened all Drops i found. A Base near my place was from a nice guild from my Country. They gave me a 220 Venom Wyvern for a  few  Adobe Walls. Traded then a 160 Fire Wyvern with them. Tried to make a wall around my base.  My mistake was to think i have time for that. So i was finished with the wall to 75%. Next day i logged on SE all my Dinos were killed. Someone kited a Rock Golem in my base.  I had all Dinos on Neutral, bad Idea. After that i made the building 8 walls high. On the Side of the Roof i made a Metal Roof with Metal Pillars. Traded with the other Tribe another Venom Wyvern, i am really glad they are so nice players. I was lucky again and found 2 Oil Spots. From the many Drops i had a few Oil pumps, so i placed them on both spots. Transfered 3 Vaults from Aberration to store the Oil. Build on Aberration an industrial Forge and transfered it to SE. Placed it on the Metal Roof. Now i have plenty Oil for all 3 maps. No more hard oil farming on the Rivers of Aberration. But i must thinking of to log on at least every 2 days. The pumps only have a 48 Hour timer. Found a few nice blueprints. Transferred from SE to Abb a yellow Ankylo and Trike Saddle BP. Found an Ascendant Theri Saddle BP. It will be usefull when i play more on Ragnarok.
Back on Aberration i breeded 5 ankylo Eggs. The worst has 216 Meele. The best 265%. This was before imprinting. Could imprint the most to around 70%. It is annoying when an aberration Dino wants Dimetrodon Kibble. Mated my Magenta Spino and have 5 Eggs from him now. 3 more Eggs are from the Spinos with 350% Melee. I hope i can breed them this Weekend. 
Today i found a Level 95 Roll Rat. Tried to lure it near to my base. On the way 3 Ravager attacked the roll rat. As i made the first hit the roll rat dies and the 3 Ravagers attacked me instantly. They got under my Crab and i could not hit. It was floating in the Air. I used my transporter crab, good weight but Only 4k HP. The Crab died so fast. Farewell lovely Donkey, i will miss you. We transported so many Metal from the Northwest Cave to the Base. Now i will level my best self tamed crab. Level 173 with 6k HP and 263% Melee. Gave her 30 Points into weight, the rest will be HP i think. 2500 weight is enough.
