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

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.

I always find this one of the most interesting posts to read. What did you do on *ARK* today? I for one tamed a few scorpions, filled my troughs full of berries and meat and then decided to look

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

Spent most of the night breeding. I have too many stats stacking up from tames so needed to combine some to free up some space. Bred a bunch of spinos, combined my stats to a 227 baby, then got a purple/blue hp mut. Still have to combine my new tames' higher melee now, should push my spinos over 230. Really need to find some high hp tames.

Also worked on Ravagers. Finally combined all my current stats (9th gen now) and got a 259 born, kept trying to get a female of the same stats and got a red stam mut and a green body health mut. Puts my hp to 4000 exactly and now I have pure green ravagers. Once i combine the hp ill be pushing 262 hatch.

Found out last night while breeding spinos that things you kill with melee seem to be giving shoulder pets exp. Took a fresh bulbdog on my shoulder and killed spino babies to test while finding stats and got it over 30 levels. Finally a way to level em up!

Instead of killing all my high level ravageds I bred trying to get stats I took 8 of them (254-259 born) and made a tame group, just to mess about with a ravager pack. Saddled em all up and went to have some fun. Also found Saltire's blue base, ironically right near where i built before for metal, keeps me motivated to find a nice place in blue, going to try to get near the entrance to the path down to drakes.

Today after work im going to transfer my extra crab to Rag and build up a few behe gates there, thatch sucks on Ab right now :P

Well I spent way too much time the last couple days looking for a Phoenix on Scorched. Heatwaves came, and I searched everywhere. No luck. So I said Ark It!, and I spawned one in. I have to say, I'm really not too impressed with it. slow, doesn't land, and aside from the nice fact that it cooks meat, I think it will just spend a lot of time sitting in my base as a nightlight.

I then transferred to Ragnarok, and promptly found and tamed a level 156 Tek Raptor male.  I'll breed him with the 174 feel I tamed last week. I also tamed a red on red level 145 Hyenadon, that was right outside my base as well. Got lucky twice with those tames.

Then I decided it was time to watch some Robot Chicken on the PS Vue.

Went yuty hunting , couldn't find one I love . Saw a really nice event saber at lvl 150 so I bolad her and filled her up with tranq,  then the bola wore off a crazy girl jumped off the cliff , I popped her once when she was midair,  homegirl was asleep by the time she hit the ground..named her trinity cause it reminded me of the matrix, and caught a event red tappy low level but looks g

Xbox - Nitrado Unofficial Server - Aberration 

Started off the night breeding up the shinehorns again. Honestly cant get enough of shinehorns, they are that cute. Bred up and kept a few and cullled some which I didnt want to keep. Was attempting to get a decent coloured male with the charge capacity mutation I got last night. Eventually popped a pair of gorgeous twin males with the mutation. Pure white body, black stripes and golden horns. So now I have a breeding male and now my main lightpet ! Sir Lightsalot is finally a thing ! Also threw down some of the 2nd gen megalo eggs I saved up in an attempt to get a breeding pair of megalos with the good hp and melee stats. Got a good high level male with all the stats, but the Ark Gods refused to hatch a female with the stats, all the good ones were male. Culled the rest appart from 3 others, two of which I kept because they hatched out mutated magenta but not with the stats, but kept them because I might as well start raising some megalos for my drake trench squad.

Then went to my metal out post to do a bit of farming. Decided that I might as well install the industrial forge I had saved up after all so I replaced the regular forges. Raised the roof to accomodate the new forge. Only thing now is it is a bit cramped in the build so I might need to build an extension but thats a problem for another day.

Bred ravagers when I got on again, got my all green 259 and just need to get a female to guarantee it (also got to get that 4k hp mut to pass)

Got my final gen together for spinos, 237 hatch now, the 5.6k hp all other stats and 331 melee

 

Tamed a 135 doed i found, then transferred my extra crab, some spinos and an extra doed back to Ragnarok. Got there and did a huge metal / poly / paste run and made up an industrial forge / cooker and plan to make a chem bench tonight.

 

I was sitting in my Rag base, minding my own buisness and breeding some eggs up when I hear stomping. I look out my breeding area to a wild giga head trying to clip into my base! I jump on a griffin to try and lead it away but its chomping my gates. My griff gets chomped and stunlocked then dead. Hopped on another griff and led it away off a ledge.

Tonight im going to bring all my premades back, set up a blue FOB for drake eggs and start working towards drakes.

Xbox - Nitrado Unofficial Server - Ragnarok and Aberration 

Started of on Ragnarok. Went hunting gold and red drops in an attempt to get a half decent megalosaurus saddle bp for Aberration, but no luck.

Then ended up on Aberration breeding up the megalos. Threw down a batch of eggs. Finally got the female I needed with the good melee and hp stats, so that one takes over the role of breedong female. Got lucky with the rest and had a good mixture of males and females with the good stats so I kept those 7 too, culling the 3 that didnt make the cut. Raised and imprinted the 7 for my drake trench squad. Got all but two up to 88% imprinting, the two wanted rock drake egg and featherlight kibble and I ran out of the time to get the rest to 100%. Thankfully I had transfered some appropriate kibble from Ragnarok for some kibble requests. Quiet nice to have the 88%ers sitting at 10k health. Cant wait to saddle them all up with a decent saddle, level them up and get into the trench to get some drake eggs. Still got a bit of prep to do though.

Popped a few more shinehorns because I was bored. Got another white and black one which was great. Also got a mutated blue socks one too but no good stats but I kept it all tge same.

Xbox - Unofficial Nitrado server - Ragnarok

 

Before I take an extended break without base maintenance, there’s a couple things I need to do first.

So last night, I took @Demerus‘s advise from another thread and am now storing my giant bee’s as beehives so not worry about feeding them. Went on to load up my water pen so it’s saturated with fish - mainly for the exclusive fish eaters. Loaded the Daedon, Gigas, and Quetzals with kibble - so much better than using meat ;)

The only thing left is admin stuff but I won’t go into details there.

As we reach closer to Extinction, I’m definitely looking forward to the prospect of playing Ark more regularly again. A break is/was needed.

Early/Mid October I’ll be back. I may do some stories as my new character progresses on The Center map - the map rotation before Extinction.

Watch out! Even on SP alpha brood is magnitudes harder than med brood and alpha ape

 

@AngrySaltire if I can get on soon want to breed some Megas? :) We can get some working dps eggs until we find some highlvls

Done it! Managed to find a wild lvl96 Yuti to help witht he fight, and he ended up at lvl 160+ before I took him into the battle. I lost a low level rex but my others(mostly around the 150 mark, other than my 215) survived well!

I'm about to face the Gamma Dragon, but I know it won't go well.

Spent a lot of time on Rag. Crafted up an industrial forge, cooker and chem bench. Made 20+ each of dilo, turtle, raptor and anky kibble (for abb imprints) and over 10 behe gate sets.

Went to Ab and placed my blue base just past spores (opposite side of Saltires, basically. Across the way) also tamed a 145 red abb bear and a 150 spino. Spino had 6k hp base so another addition to my line. Placed all my indy items, placed forge at base and ill make another for blue.

 

Was out leveling my all red crab, a few times I got stunlocked and almost died. Spino knockback isnt anything to mess with. Be careful! 

Probably did a bit more but im trying to keep it short :)

I didn't do anything anymore for the last few days because I'm bored with the game now. It's always like this, starting fresh, playing all days long for 1 or 2 months with full spirit, then get bored and feel everything is like chores after that, donate all dinoes/base to newcomers or old players, rinse and repeat. 

 

I wish I can just freeze my progress especially my dinoes and blueprints, export them in a cloud somewhere, then comeback some other time. If only WC works with Steam and provide a home map for everyone to store their dinoes and stuffs, that would be awesome, can just jump in the public game world/server anytime with old dinoes.

Xbox - Nitrado Unofficial Server - Aberration and Ragnarok.

Started of by trading with @d1nk. Got access to his megalo saddle bp and crafted up a bunch. Also got some ravagers and even got round to taming a crab for me too. In return I traded megalo eggs with the good stats (unless I mucked up somehow) and a female shinehorn to with his male. Might have been more but cant remeber

Was then across to Ragnarok with d1nk to craft up a tek transmitter using his glorious tek replicator and craft up a bunch of element from the shards I had gathered from killling alphas. By which point I was half zombified so I wasnt really sure what was going on but we got there in the end. 'No Saltire we're building a transmitter not a teleporter...'

*Sigh* Been a while since I stayed up very late playing Ark, try not to do that to much these days, not like back when I played official, silly times. Hello bed my friend... Anyway thanks again d1nk for the trade, help and advice. Much appreciated. Good to finally mic up.
