Anarki

So what did you do in ARK today?

Recommended Posts

Did my first cave run (island swamp cave). Used 4 lvl ~230 wolves, took 2 sets skuba/ghilly with me.

Things went pretty good, untill i got very deep into the cave, jumped off my wolf to get a drop, but i didnt think about the 20 leeches in the water... I got stuck and they killed me in seconds.

Didnt have gear/sleeping bag at the cave, so i spawned back at base, took some gear, an argy and another wolf and hurried back to the cave. Unfortunately the critters already spawned back, so i went back to get a second wolf with my argy.

By the time i got back to the wolf pack, my stuff despawned.

Didnt have anything important on me, but lost the stuff i got from the drops. I did get the artifact and 2 more drops on the way out. 

All 6 wolves survived and i got the artifact, so i guess it was a succesfull first run :D

After that was done, i went to get some silica pearls and found this 120 Yuti. So i finally tamed my first Yuti :)wiz092qclo.jpg

Found a 135 Thyla on my way back to base, not that far from my trap. Never tamed one before. I had enough titanoboa kibble though, so its mine now. Thats ANOTHER first for today!

Xbox - Nitrado Unofficial Server - Ragnarok and Aberration 

Seem to spend most of the time today transferring more supplies across to Aberattion from Ragnarok. Tamed up a high level dire bear, doed and anky, and transfered them across. Crafted up and installed the rest of the behomoth gateways and all of the required gates, so my base on Aberation is now fully enclosed. Built the hatchery extention off the main build and installed the incubator.

Spent most of the day yesterday breeding my two 130 tamed spinos. Since the hatch and maturation is boosted here I was able to hatch a butt load of eggs. Got two melee mutations, weight mutation, health mutation, blue belly, pink main, orange main and even a yellow one I killed. I mustve hatched almost 100 eggs over a span of the whole day. Subsequently that brought me up to level 88. Ended up getting all stats and muts onto a red pair and an orange pair. Not the greatest stats but its a start; 5.3k hp 30greates need to tame more stock, brought over Argentavis kibble.

While doing all that I got some base work done aswell. Added a few more fridges, ACs, a fence along a back side and finished off my side-yard taming facility area, ramp and all. Just need to add a second medium taming pen. My friend logged on and we found a 150 roll rat event coloured and lured it to our spino trap to tame. We made a quick transmitter trip for our doed and some supplies.

I took a short break to real life a bit and while I was gone my buddy built a crab trap and tamed a 145 crab and 145 Ravager.

When I got back on I tamed a 145 bulbdog, did a metal run with the crab and made a few vaults. I went to bed after raising a few spinos for battle.

 

This morning I tamed a 125 crab as soon as I logged in, went on killing spree and tamed a 125 red bulbdog to mate with my 145. After that I went down to blue for awhile looking for a shine horn. Tamed a dung beetle and after awhile found a 135 Mega. Tried to get it inna taming pen but that didnt pan out, ended up chasing it all around blue and finally knocked it out. Tamed up after finding an ovis (145 red unfortunatly :( ) then took it back to base whilist killing everything in sight. More to come about the rest of my day tomorrow!

Xbox - Nitrado Unofficial Server - Aberration 

 

Just a quick one tonight. Had all the essential resource gathering dinos now but the roll rat. So I grabbed the dire bear and harvested up some honey from a bee hive located within my perimeter wall. Went out and had a quick look for a roll rat and decided to tame up a low level 80, the rest were lower. Tamed it up but mucked up one of the honey throws so lost a bit of taming efficiency. 

Of course to craft the saddle for the rat I needed to be level 58, so I took the spino out for a run and went up and down the river system murdering everything. Oh my word the kill message spam lol thats a lot of fish. Got to level 60 without an issue. Then I realised that I needed 400 metal and I still hadnt sorted out the metal situation. I couldnt be bothered transfering it across fron Ragnarok and I couldnt be bothered to reallocate brain power to think out a solution tonight after a day at work so I called it a night lol. I'll work it out tommorow, just trying to work out if I want to build a wee outpost near one of the metal spawns by the glow tail cave, and run the metal back to base.

Xbox Nitrado Private Server - Ragnarok (PVP/PVE mix)

Spent the day looking for a good place to fish on Ragnarok.. no luck.

Finished up with hatching a few tek rex eggs... no mutations...

Anyone know any good fishing spots on Ragnarok?

Any tips for getting more mutations or am I just having horrible luck?

No idea about the fishing but with mutations its just a numbers game really. Some times you get lucky and get some quickly, other times you go for ages with nothing. Hatch lots and hope, what I wouldnt give for the S+ egg incubator/collector for breeding, would make getting masses of eggs down bearable lol.

Bred my bulbdogs to get some backups for drake runs. Kept looking for tames for hours. Mass killing sprees of both Fertile forest area, river and blue zone looking for some nice tames but turned up nothing. Only found a level 115 male Ravager. Took it home and tamed it.

Farmed up a bunch of mats, built a small extension for storage, a greenhouse (after a few tries.. damn Ab sky) and bred some dimorphs for base defence and general tomfoolery. Went on a big metal run and then bred my Ravagers to get a few to tie me over.

Tried to tame another 145 crab but it wouldnt get into the trap and took too much damage. It died right when it shouldve knocked out. I modifed the trap slightly to try and avoid this in the future

Did a bit of exploring around, built a zipline to the huge area above my base. We're thinking of keeping our spinos and extra tames up there if we can figure out how to build a ramp there or get a teleporter. 

Went to the surface cave for the first time, the one in Fertile near blue. I might make a metal outpost there and build a ramp up for the public. Good for quick surface runs on ravagers or whatnot. Gonna log and watch a movie then catch up on some sleep! Been arking too hard this weekend :P

What did i do in ark today? Oh just logged onto all of my fridge demoed, all of the fert eggs that I collected and got from trades all gone like that, all kibble, all kibble eggs, pretty much everything I had, the thing that annoys me the most is that it doesn't even say what demoed the fridges.

Hatched eggs for the first time. I was feeling confident because it wasn’t the hectic nightmare I read about; it was kinda laid back and easy. I threw two dimo eggs in and both were twins.... so, this is what they mean! Then my 2 yr old wants to come over and jack with my controller, because that’s fun for her....

Ran into a Rex for the first time while looking for the South cave. Wouldn’t you know it had a mate... handled the first with minimal losses, but we got separated when the second showed up. Cleaned me out. One animal made it out: that dang parasaur. It’s a survivor man. Was able to get my loot (that I could find because of the undergrowth), most saddles and what not, limped home to recoup. 

Decided to explore the other side of the islet. There’s a ton of raptors over there, among other things. Got wiped again. Died 3 times before I went home and made a set of armor, and a shotgun. While I was doing that a theriz started going ape on my building. I had only made one shell by then and he took it in the face, a couple pokes with a pile, then I set the dimos on him. I let the alpha female keep the claw trophy. 

Reclaimed my stuff and tamed a raptor and a higher lvl trike. I owed it to the parasaur to 1) reclaim his stuff 2) get revenge on the spino that killed him. Note: wooden spike barricade will not stop a spino. That thing charged right through the defenses. I had everything on passive, maybe that’s why they all lived? Anyway, that was just a weird fight. It looked like it was just going crazy, not killing anything, just running around scaring the daylights out of me. It’s death was pretty sweet though. It had went behind a boulder and out of vision/ SG range. But it came charging back, seemed to go airborne over the rock, lunging at me and I blasted it with buckshot! It’s momentum carried it into the water and piranhas got on it.

Hah well.. the rush to endgame is what I enjoy the most. You could say im a meta ark player, my base looks like poop but its efficient. The good thing is we're allied and i looooove to help! Some time when we actually get some time online together we will mic up and catch you up.

A good crab will easily boost your Aberration game! Do you want me to tame you one? I love taming crabs. Got a 130 purple one knocked out right now! Ill keep an eye out for a decent level one and if I do find one I dont want to tame but is high level ill grab it incase you want :)

Lol I am just to laid back to rush anywhere in Ark, love taking my time. I love helping too but I feel like your doing all the heavy lifting haha. Been busy recently. Yeah definatly need to mic up. Only problem is your going to get me stuffed full of a late summer cold lol. 

I wont say no to a crab, not a big fan of invertebrates like crabs as animals but their utility is just too good to pass up. Your too kind :), need to try and pay you back at somepoint ?

Ps4 - Private Nitrado server - Ragnarok

 

Got a few new color mutations and or desired mutation combinations in my Ravager pens over the weekend. Got a nice Navy blue body, and also a dark brown body. I finally got my all lavender ravager, with the spine, body and belly all purple.  I'm now trying to decide what other color combos I want to make.

Tamed a level 150 Griffin ... vanilla colors, but you can never have too many Griffins, to use for wyvern egg runs.

Tamed a few more event colored dinos, including a 140 female raptor in all red and Red and White Sloth that is a lower level, but just too cool looking to not tame.

tamed a level 150 red on red Sabretooth.

and finished off my weekend by taming a level 174 male Tek Raptor.   Amazingly, I did not tame any Tek Stegos over the weekend. Even passing on a level 114, as its colors didn't do much for me.

Bred up some of my pterdons, and got some nice color combos. All of the parents were level 135 or high pre-tame. I got a female that has good melee stats, and another with good weight stats.  Just need to find some good Ptera saddle BPs.

It has been over 2 weeks, since I've seen a Tek Rex on the map. I've cleared out many areas during meat runs, and still no new Teks. I may just have to breed up my best Tek Rexs instead.

 

Oh yeah, Last night I noticed a Red with white Shark near my water base in Viking Bay.... it was a level 130, so I tamed it up and added it to the "navy".  I have never bred sharks before... I think that might be my next breeding project.

Also farmed up enough Chitin and poly in the desert, to craft up some of my ASC & MC Ghillie and Chitin armor outfits.

Last but not least, I tried and failed to tame 3 different event colored Tapejaras all level 130-150. They are beautiful and high level, but even wearing Ghillie , I can't get close enough to bola and tranq them. Never had such a tough time with Tapejars before. Oh well...I'll keep trying.

First week of NFL football, so will be busy this week with a FFL draft (my league's 25th year) and hanging out with my buddy who flies back from California each year for the draft.
