Aberration - PvE - Official

Built a Teleporter platform in Radiation zone, Made and placed Teleporter and Generator, fired it up.. learned you can't take Ravs to Rad zone.  Brought drake and Megalos as bodyguards, Farmed several thousand red gems, made a 145.6% Rock Drake Saddle. Added some touches to Teleporter platform. Called it a day :D

Did nothing special this week, got to much work to do. But Friday  a lvl 80 Direwolf spawned inside my SE Base. Tranqued him and feeded him Prime Meat whenever i found it. Stood up with Level 109. I will transfer him to The Island. He will be my first Cave Runner. I need to tame a male Carno on Aberration, 3 females now but only 2 eggs in Weeks. I should tame then on the Island too i believe.

Prepared all for Crop Plots and Kibble. Fabricated an Industrial Cooker and metal Water Pipes for The Island.

At the weekend  i was farming fish on Aberration as i saw a 145 Karkinos. Ilas it was Saturday, it was taming day. Grabbed the Boat, shoot the tranq dart to lure the crab into the boat and knocked her out.

Bit by bit my Base is getting to small for all the Tames.

Tamed another 2 female Dilos on The Island which gone for a walk near my base. Level 10 and 90. First Smoke House is full with fertilized Dilo Eggs. Realy need to make Crop Plots and Smoke Meat.

Placed the Crop plots and the Water. Noticed if the Water is 2 Walls higher as the plots, they dont get water. I dont understand that, but placed all Water Pipes 1 wall lower and all is fine now. Uploaded on SE the Sabertooth and 2 DireWolf. Now my Coworker can Explore the Island ( until he run into his first Alpha, they are everywhere on South 2). No time this Week to breed all the Spino Eggs this week again. Was hoping i have time and can crossbreed the Magenta Spinos with the Spino with the Pink Belly. And i have 2 bought Eggs from another tribe with much more Melee.

Did some finishing touches on my breeding area, went for a few runs to see if I can find anything to tame then was AFK cleaning the house. @AngrySaltire stopped by my place and we bred up our Megas, learnt that a) Mega eggs hatch at room temp and b) they only incubate for 3 minutes lol. Went back to a few baby megas running around.

We each got a mega baby, breeding pairs and a few eggs. I mated him a few bulbdogs and gave him one of my extras then he went off on his way. Popped a few eggs and went off for a bit.

Got on later and raised a few more eggs, did some base work and turned around to see a 145 pure red spino, trapped and tranqed it.

After that was done I took my new bred imprinted mega out for a spin. Killed all the spawns then after I was at my base spotted a 135 Red/White crab. Ive been trying to get an event crab so just my luck :) Tamed out nice, parked it at base then logged for the night

Did the usual metal farm (gotta love rolling in those ingots!) and spent a good hour rescuing my tribemates from themselves.  "uhhhh I just downed this quetzal but I have no narcs on me....heyyyyyy... can you bring me some?  In like 5 minutes because I didn't notice until now?  Oh, and it's in the murder snow, so i'll need fur gear too, 'cause I'm dying..."  But yeah, building mostly.

I went after a 145 Event colored female Quetz on Saturday. She was beautiful Red, White and Black.  First spotted her by the Wyvern scar on Ragnarok, and spent the first 10 minutes trying to keep her from flying towards the murder snow, while I kept tranqing her. But eventually, she made a run for the snow, and would not turn back. I got her stuck in the side of a tiny cliff/hill in the snow. I scoped out the area, and there was nothing but pack of wolves in the area. So I killed them, and then went back to the Quetz (still stuck) to finish KO'ing it.

I finally got it knocked out,  I scan the area again, and the coast is clear as far as I can see. So I go over to the Griffin to grab some spike walls to put down, when suddenly I hear a Yuty roar ..... I look around and a Yuty comes out of the woods from far away, but chasing a a dino. The stupid galli runs directly at me and the quetz.,  now I had to make a choice to attack the Yuty, or try to put down the spike walls. I decided I had to divert the Yuty first, so I jump on my Griffin, but just as I do, the Yuty sees me, and roars. Well my Griffin of course freaks out, and it takes me on a wild ride. I gain control again, but I am not sure where I am (still in the murder snow) I circle back to where I thought I had dropped the Quetz, but cannot find either the Q or the Yuty. I then spent the next 25 minutes flying every inch of the snow region, and never found the either.  I was so freaking mad, that I rage quit. ??

PS4 - Single Player - The Island

 

After a while, I got back on to ARK, but on a different map. I got on The Island on my single player game. I hadn't been on this character/map for months. Was flying around on a Ptera, when I came upon a building, then I realized it was my Thylacoleo breeding barn.  So I stop in, and took a while to re-acquaint myself with my breeders.  Then I remembered, that I was trying to get an all hot pink Thyla.  I had Pink Spine, and Pink Body, and Pink Belly, but was having trouble getting them all to combine.  Finally got that, but along the way, got multiple other color mutations and after hours of playing, so many Thylas, that my game was lagging. Got many colors and combinations, and am not finished.  Once I get that project done, I will spilt up the Thylas amongst my varies characters and maps, and kill of the remaining ones.

I then switched over to the Ragnarock Nitrado server that I had rage quit earlier in the day.  This time, I loaded up a bunch of my Tek Stegos, and a few other event colored dinos, and switched over to my Rag single player game.  down-loaded those dinos, and will eventually get them all organized into the barn I built last month. But since it is SP, I can leave them in the main yard for now, and they will be safe.

I did find and tame a all Red with grey spikes level 150 female Doed.  I will breed that with my level 145 All white with Red Spikes female, and hope to get all red on red.

Then I had to attend to other business the rest of the evening Saturday, so logged off for the weekend.

Went into the Caverns of Lost Hope with an Aquatic Army at my back,

10 Megalodons all Lvl 300+

10 Sarcos all Lvl 300+

10 Baryonyxs all Level 300+

We murdered everything in that cave.....until we swam around a corner and found ourselves facing a Level 140 Alpha Tuso.

Needlees to say we got rekt by the Alpha Tuso.

But we managed to kill it and retrieve the Artifact of the Cunning.

I left the cave with only 7 survivors. 3 Megalodons and 4 Baryonyxs.

Xbox - Nitrado Unofficial Server  - Aberration 

Went on the hunt in the blue zone.  No luck with any megas or shinehorns. Went back to base.

Decided to transfer across some high level dimorph eggs from Ragnarok. Hatched up the lot, kept 3 aside for breeding more eggs if need be and the other 10 will be my new dimorph attack squad. Want to see if I can use them to help me out in the glowtail cave to get some glowtails and even get to the artifact. Also bred up a few bulbdogs so I had a few disposable ones. Quickly built up a small dino barn to keep the dimorphs in as well as anything else I can fit in there.

Went back out to the blue zone. Still scouting out potential metal outposts but I appear to be a bit picky. Found a few likely contenders but still deciding on ot. On the way out of the blue zone I finally find a 135 female shinehorn, so I tamed it up and took it back to base. Back into the blue zone for more hunting. Wiped out all the shinehorns and megas I could find. Just as I gave up hope, again just before leaving the blue zone I stumbled into a 140 male mega. So I quickly got down the pitfall trap I had been carrying on the spino and lured the mega into the trap, knocked it out and waited for it to tame up with kibble. Took it back to base. Got lucky with the health with 8659.3 which is higher than I have with my current breeding pair. Unfortunatly the melee is only 296 but I guess I cant get lucky with all the stats lol. Now all I need to do is breed my new male with the female I have and get the good hp with the good melee into a new breeding pair. But thats for another night.

Xbox - Private Nitrado server - Ragnarok

 

Spent the last few days breeding some ravagers, therizinosaurus, and Bulldogs. Got some cool ravager mutations but not much else. 

Frustrated since my friend started breeding his mesopithecus and got 4 mutations out the 7 times he bred. 

He proceeded to tell me that I must not have bred much as he thinks that mutations are as common as he just got them. Grrr.

I want a full blue Bulbdog so bad.

I bred my gigas and got 41% imprint on the baby which is good for my first bred giga. I then farmed the snow cave again and got another ascendant pump action shotgun, some ascendant ghille armor and some saddles for creatures I dont have 

I also looted a red supply drop and got an ascendant assault rifle which had less dmg then my other one but more durability so Im using it

Didnt do much yesterday, logged on and sat around base checking out stats on bulbdogs and such, tamed a 145 the other night with 1.2k hp then on a chance, spotted a 150 bulbdog. I always spyglass the spinos and crabs outside my base, spyglassing a nice red low level crab spotted a 150 bulbdog behind it. Hopped on my crab and tamed it. All the stats are worse than mine except a small increase to charge regen.

Went and killed some stuff with my Mega. Cleared the river and went down to blue to clear some spawns. Found 2 of my ravagers and did a whole loop around the giant tree thingy. As I came back up there was a level 15 alpha crab near my base, so took it on with my Mega until I got grabbed off and killed :( No matter, its literally in front of my base. Jumped on a spino and jumped down, hopped onto my mega ahain and the spino helped me kill the crab..just as my nice personal bulbdog and one of the ravagers I found died..

This time I got element shards (@DJRone89 is this new? Killed two others and didnt get any before?) 

 

Bred a few bulbdogs and got another stat combined, level 255 max now should be able to get 257 before needing some more new blood. The total stats are a combination of over 20 140+ ravagers ive personally tamed (plus two my buddy tamed)

Decided it was about time to make a move to get down a metal farming outpost in the blue zone, so I started prepping for the build. Started off by transfering across some behomoth gates from Ragnarok, didnt fancy crafting up multiple gates with my current set up on Ab, the thatch would have been daunting. Crafted the rest of the structures on Abberation. Nearly lost my iguanodon when farming thatch when I missed (or rather I didnt) the beehive sitting behind a mushroom tree. Thankfully I was right next to base so managed to make it to a spino and whistle the iguanodon passive to get it away just in the nick of time, it was so low on health lol.

Hatched up 4 of the spare megalo eggs I had in the fridges, these are going to be the guard dogs for the metal outpost. Also bred some more bulbdogs for the light to keep the nameless away. Started stockpiling the next gen of megalo eggs to try and get the melee and hp stats I have into a breeding pair, didnt hatch any though, thats a problem for another day.

While I waited the final 20 mins on the megas maturation I went on the hunt for ravagers on the crab, but had trouble finding any at all never mind a high level. Found one pack but all low levels.

Hopefully next time I get on I can make a move on the metal outpost.

Saddled up the 4 megalosaurus and loaded them up and the spino with the structures needed to build my metal outpost in the blue zone. Made the journey to my chosen location without to much of a problem. Seemed safe enough so I put down the building and then the perimeter wall to keep various nastys out. Installed the basic forges and storages boxes and move the megas in to the safety of the build. Tamed a random low level shinehorn which was hanging around my build and its now taken up residence at the outpost.

On the way out of the blue zone I found a 145 anky, so I rushed back to base picked up taming supplies and jumped on the crab. Went back and picked up the anky (its friend didnt seem to concerned that I had abducted its mate) and got it into the nearest taming pen I had, knocked it out and kibbled it up. Took out a few nastys such as 3 rock drakes which were hanging a bit to close for comfort but I really was pushing this mid level crab to the limit with what it could take. Was eyeing up a high level rock drake and megalo when BANG disconect (love my internet at times). Logged back on to find the megalo mauling my face off. Just managed to get a neutral whistle off in time as I had whistled passive to tame the anky, before I died. Respawned, grabbed a spare bulbdog and got on my spino and naked rushed back to the blue zone. The megalo was giving my crab a right beating but I made it in time to save the crab and the othwr bulbdog. At this point the anky tamed up.

Then I took the crab and carried the anky and the spare bulbdog to the new metal outpost. Just as I renedered in the base my bulbdog alerted me to a max level creatures. To my joy a 150 male shinehorn was prancing around outside my perimeter wall. Thankfully I had z seeds on me so I tamed it up. Left the two bulbdogs and the anky at their new home. Hoped back on my crab with my new shinehorn and went back my base picking up my spino on the way back.

Bred the new 150 male shinehorn with the 130 I already had. Love shinehorns deffinatly my favourite lightpet, but my word they are annoying to breed, apparantly a 1x1 is too big a pen for  breeding. Also they all seem to be powered by sugary or caffeine filled drinks, charging around at light speed. Bred up two and the second kid got a charge capacity mutation so I was happy with that. While I waited for them to mature, I took the murder murder flock (i.e my dimorph flock) for a spin with the spino. They seemed to do very well, I just got a bit nervous whenever I targetd a dire bear. Got them all back to base safely and called it a night.

You should check the club from time to time ? All server updates are posted there. And yes I added element shards to the Aberration Alpha loot tables after learning they don’t drop any gear.

I only use the mobile app to copy links into the chat, most of the time it’s through the Xbox.
