Ahh, thank you for the info, fellas.

S how about it, @DJRone89; Mind if I join your server? I'm not a prick, nor do I grief. I've never played PvE but i've got just over 2.5k hours in PvP, and have been playing since EA 2015. 

I’d hate to derail this topic any further. DM me.

Building traps on my no tame server. The life of a troll is not to be taking lightly.

Ragnarok

Tamed another Dilo, now I have 5 females and 1 male. I really need more eggs from them. Cause no one on my Aberration Server trades Ankylos. And my best has only 250 damage at birth. Most of the other player use normal Ankylos and not the Aberration variants. So I need kibble to tame them myself. Finally no level cap and I can mate them. 5 eggs every 2 days. Better then nothing. I should tame  a Oviraptor for more eggs. Sadly I am most the time on Aberration. When I play with my coworker on The Island again I will tame Dilos too. U can have not enough of them.

Aberration

Mated the 233 Tek Stego with the level 12 and level 6 female I have. I hope I can breed them at the weekend. The Stego has 5900 HP, not the worst I hope.

PS4 - Private Server - Ragnarok

 

So I played a bunch on Monday night, and managed to find an tame another tek raptor it was a level 168 pre-tame. I also tamed another Event colored tek Stego, all red body, with red and blue spikes. very cool looking. I tamed a level 60 event Griffin, I normally don't tame things under level 100, but I had been looking for a event griffin since it started, so I couldn't pass it up. It took FOREVER to tame it, it would not kite correctly to my trap, and everytime I got close to the trap, the server would lag for just a second, causing my approach to the dino gate to be off. I ended up going after it on griffin, and it still took frustratingly long. When I finally dropped it in the valley near the green OB, it lands in the creek. luckily not deep enough to drown. Then I fly over and attack a "lone" bronto for prime. Well How I missed the other two Bronts, I have no clue, but I am feed the griffin the prime, and I hear heavy foot steps, and look up and I have two P.O'd Brontos bearing down on me. I kite them away from the griffin, and managed to kill them. 

Finally the red event Griffin is tamed, and I take it out for a flight, with my other griffin following. We fly over by the green OB, and to my amazement, another Giga has spawned, and it is another RED one! This one is a level 150! I can't believe my luck. I already had a trap in the area I had built months ago, so I fly the griffins back to central base, grab a ton of narcs, darts, kibble etc and jump on my Fire Wyvern. After a few failings, we finally get the giga kited into the trap. I then proceed to put more tranq darts into 1 dino than I ever have before. I literally lost count of the darts it took to put this beast down. I was even starting to think it was glitched, because it just would not go down. But  finally it drops and when after what seemed like forever, it stands up. I throw a saddle on it, and we make our way back to the base leveling up on stegos and trikes as we go. This thing is a beast, and I name it Big Red Machine, to go along the previously tamed "Kane" giga. I put it in the pen with the other giga, and log off after staying up way too late taming that giga.

Xbox - Nitrado Unofficial Server - Ragnarok

Started of by going out and harvesting some resources. Really needed to stock up on metal and crystal. So took out the poison wyvern and the anky and farmed up the metal nodes in the central canyon and filled up the industrial forge and let it cook up. Then went to my favourite crystal spawn near the desert and farmed up all the crystal.

Then moved on to the fun stuff. Went out on the fire wyvern into the snow cave to hit up the drops without much luck. Then decided to hit up some ice wyvern eggs. Again not much luck only found 2 eggs in total one of which spoiled instantly. Annoyingly I found a 175 wild wyvern but not the egg, the nest being occupied by a low level egg (the one which spoiled). Tried losing it in the trees and came back later but still no luck. Moved onto the desert drops and had more luck. Mostly junk realy but found a new ascendant crossbow blueprint which is much bettet than my old bp and better than the premade one I found on the last trip round the desert. Then flew back to base making a slight detour past a few of the ice wyvern nest in the hope some had spawned but nothing again.

I have had TERRIBLE luc kthe last few weeks looking for Ice Wyvern eggs ..... I too am seeing high level wyverns, but the few nests that render are always low level. Lately, just finding a SINGLE nest is a chore. I have all the coordinates, and GPS, but they just are not there on a regular basis.  The Desert loot drops are another problem area for me. I spend 30 minutes flying all over the desert (more like skimming the desert surface) and I never find the loot drops.  I'm on a PS4 - private Nitrado server.

I know the feeling. While I do have all the ice wyvern egg locations I dont nessesarily know where the nest is precisely because I dont hunt them that often. I guess its a case of constantly trying to clear the nests and wyverns.

Thankfully I have no difficulty with the desert drops, I have all the locations on my mini map and more conviently other people on the server have built small spawn points right next to the drops so if i find the huts I find the drops if they have spawned. Takes me about 5 minutes to go around them all.

A small trick you may or may not know. Works for all dragonoids (drakes, wyverns, ice wyverns) 

Say you want the egg nest above frozen lake to spawn, keeps giving low eggs. Kill that wyvern, find a suitable high level ice wyv (doesnt have to be female, tested this) and drag it to around that nest. Leave render, come back and there ahould be an egg from that wyvern in that nest. If not, derender, wait (30 min~) and check again. When you steal the egg try not to lure the wyv too far then just check back 15-30 mins later.. voila. Exact same egg. Same stats etc. Repeat as long as you want. It works in scar too but theres a lot more wyverns and possible nest spawns.

 

One stipulation i would try to meet.. its best if the wyvern egg you want to spawn actually spawns there naturally instead of dragged over (so keep killing until you get a high lvl spawn) i have done it both ways but the dragged wyv seems to despawn randomly so its not as effective.

I did try this with the 175 but its hard to unagrro it once you steal an egg. Thought I managed to lose it in the vicinity of the nest and went back a few times to check for the egg and nothing :(

I'll have to try this.  Last night I flew the whole frozen area looking for nests and eggs. Killed a 160 Ice Wyvern, but the nest it was next to had a level 20 egg! :(

I then went thru the Wyvern scar on Rag, and using my tank wyvern, I cleared out nearly all the wyverns, including some GORGEOUS event colored Lightning & Fire Wyverns that were level 170-190. I checked every nest, and none of those high level wyverns had eggs! the highest level I found was a level 60. So frustrating to do so much work, come so close to death, and get crappy eggs as a result. I can't even breed in the event colors to my high level wyverns because you can't breed the wyverns on console.

At least I have more eggs to use if I want to tame snakes, or level up other dinos.

Also last night, guess what?  I tamed up another Tek Stego! I know, surprise, surprise! lol. I think I have 30 of them now...... I really have a problem.

Haven't been able to play since Sunday, works too busy and I'm going out of town this weekend, and will be staying in a hotel for three days starting Monday for work *sigh*. 

The wife has been working on the water base a bit, but she doesn't like playing without me.

Tamed 2 more Tek Stegos and a Tek Raptor .... I am addicted to TEK

 

Flew the whole Rag map, saw zero Tek Rexs, and got no new color mutations in my ravager breeding pens.

Tamed a level 145 All red female Ptera, with good Melee, and will add to the breeding pool.

 

not much else last night. Seeing a bunch of event colored Spinos, but always low low level.

Started of by farming up more metal, taking the wyvern and anky in to the central canyon and then onto the metal cave on the west coast and filled up the indy forge. Going to need a lot of metal as I have started to build metal structures in anticipation of the season server on the cluster changing from Scorched to Aberation. 

Then did a little bit of drop hunting with no luck. Also dropped by where I saw the 175 Ice wyvern a few nights ago on the off chance there was an egg but not even a nest.

Then did a little bit of breeding, which I didnt mean to take up the entire night but of course it did lol. Started of by hatching up some of the eggs I got from when me and @d1nk did some theri breeding. No real luck but got a male with the good hp and melee stat so I kept that just in case. Also hatched an egg of triplets with the good melee stat and an acceptable colour combo. So I kept the triplets together and fully imprinted them fir general use. Now I have Theri, Zino and Saur :D Two shall be used for harvesting with one leveled in delicate harvesting and the other leveled in power harvesting. The third shall be used for general badassery. 

Then I started on the rexs.... which is what took most of the night. All I needed to do was hatch the male with the good melee stat but that took some time, I was also aiming for a higher level male to have all of the stats. Got a few colour mutations which was cool but didnt keep any, even including a cool neon green belly contrasting nicely with the blue which pained me to kill it. Hatched up a pair of high level triplets which for sure had a male with the stats... but no all three were female but I kept them as the new females for breeding as they were a higher level than the current female. Finally got a highish level male with the high melee stats. I kept going for a bit longer incase of anything higher then of course Ark throws the spanner in the works to my breeding plans and throws me a health mutation... lol. My current health is 9.2k and with this mutation I am now up to 9.6K. I guess if I cant find a wild rex with higher stats than I have at least I have started to stack mutations lol. I just wasnt planning on doing it this soon. I just wanted a clean base breeding pair and to keep taming to see if I couldnt find one higher. 

Then I had an attempt to find a high level male spino near the spino trap in the central canyons, to go with my female. I killed a few 130 and 140 females but no luck with any males. Maybe next time.

Lol I think I might have killed a few high level red/black ones ooppss. The trap is kind of in the centre of the canyons, cant miss it. Same design as the green ob one. Only thing is I cant necessarily remeber unlocking the gate, it was an eventful build...

I would love a few eggs :)

I'll have to post a pic of that 911 spino i hatched. Black with white trim along the sail with red eyes and belly. Spinos are one dino that are imo gorgeous with black and white or black and red. ?

Started of by collecting up the last of the resources need to craft up a motorboat. Had to take the bary out to collect the black pearls of the west coast but had the rest of the resources. So I crafted up the boat and took it out to the coast. Launched H.M.S Its A Trap II, and as the name implies it shall be my next taming raft, an upgrade from the stone one I made ages ago. Plan is to make it completely out of metal. All I need to do now is build on the raft but not tonight.

Went on the hunt for a high level male spino and a high level rex but no luck again. Was even on the look out for a female oviraptor for kibble but all I could find was males. Did find a level 162 tek raptor so tamed that up to go with the lower level one. Love the red and golden colours on it.

rps20180825_220708.thumb.jpg.b916d5d6ab4fc25a39ecbd5420add6d5.jpg

 

Also found what I think is an event level 135 griffin near my griffin trap, so I tamed it up. Again the highlands seemed devoid of ovis so I had to resort to prime meat tame it. Its the second time the highlands has failed me recently for ovis. After taking it back to base for a better look I still cant tell if the griffins a natural colour or not. The more I look at it the more it looks like a natural colour, doesnt seem very red lol
