tamed replacement ptera and accidentally fed myself 10 narcotics instead of the ptera and because of this fell asleep for what felt like years.

At least I'm not the only one lol

Unofficial ragnarok 

Kinda a rough day , went bear hunting again and idk why I dont just bring some dino gates a protecc my bear while taming because once again my plan was screwed up by wild dino lol. First a tek rex so I lost some levels , then 2 sets of scorpions..now hes at 12% and not much life left so I can restart the bear . So I roasted it lol

Messed around with spinos for a bit, didnt like any of the levels saw a few gorgeous ones but trash levels , so I dino wiped the area cause john wick was hungry 

Then went allo hunting,  found the most beautiful female allo , orange red and purple such a sick combo.  But a raptor tried to catch me on the slip I bolad her just in time,  usually a raptor only takes a few tranqs so a bola works fine....unless it's a level 240 , homegirl tried to swim on me . Had to lure her on water by walking on foot waiting for bola #2 she fell for it and I kibble tamed her at 98% making her 340 , my second strongest raptor now , back to ms allo she been starving this whole time, so when I filled her up with primes she bounced to 80% in a minute, brought her home at 321 

Now my allo breeding has begun lol

Xbox - Single Player - The Island

Decided I needed a change of pace on Ark the past few days from the breeding and the grinding on the online server of Rag and Aberration, so I wiped and started again on single player. Wamted to experience the island again.

So I spawned in on the south eastern shores (funnily enough where I first ever started) and ground up the levels till I hit the raft engram. Wanted to get out to Herb Island to work up to a few teirs including getting to metal tools. Took the raft and made a beeline for the island. Predictably a leeds targeted me but it somehow missed its one chance and I got to the Island. The rafts stuck there now as theres a leeds and an alpha leeds hanging around lol.

So I threw down a base, tamed up a parasaur and trike and worked on getting narcs and metal tools together. Eventually tamed up a pterandon and got a saddle on it. Funny story, killed an anky for keratin l and I turned round to fin my self face to face with a unicorn stuck between two rocks. Need to come back for that at some point. Also tek parasaurs everywhere, thought they were supposed to be rare, common as muck lol

Took the ptera out on a scouting mission for a good base location. I am so indecisive about these things, so spent ages convincing myself about different areas to settle down in. Eventually settle down on the west coast ontop of one of the main hills overlooking towards the north and blue ob. Got a 3x3 base down and kitted out the essentials. Had to do a metal run on the ptera for metal for a new smithy and a supppy of metal to keep my equipment topped up. Tamed up a new trike and a couple of dilos including an event blue one, for the new base. Not getting the dinos I tamed up on herb island to the new location anytime soon, with the leeds hanging around and no ability to upload and download at beacons.

Unofficial ragnarok,  

Was a pretty quiet night,  made a few trades and stocked up on ammo and tranq . Lined up 2 more trades for a mutated thyla and a Griffin that'll be sick

Then I found where megalania spawn, man they're jerks ! Either they die cause of the low health but once you do put em out the torpor drain is absolutely ridiculous and it took soooo much narco . But I named him ralphie and hes at lvl 355 , using ralphie to tranq rexies from the side of a cliff is gonna be fun lol

I want to tame a thyla and I'm wondering if there's anything I should consider bringing besides a couple rexes for protection and dino gates to protect the thyla because I tried it and carnos started falling off the cliff and ate the thyla.

An Argentavis so you can pick it and fly it to a safer location before you KO to tame?

Logged in, checked dino's  and went metal grinding to find someone had beaten me to my main mining place. Returned, mined some local metal and logged off.

Tonight... will hopefully get some metal mined, feed a few things and try and whip up some banter on the server... Im the usual one who starts the conversations server wide.

I have some 135+ tamed therezinos on my ragnarok server. They were used previously for breeding top dinos. I need elem for my tek gen soon, so I decided to do gamma boss with them. 

So i took 1 yuty, 15 theriz with 5 cakes each, 2 boss rexes and 2 tamed tek rexes.

Killed boss, but there was no element at all in any dino. Theriz were full health, they spent only 2-3 cakes each. Boss Rexes were almost dead oO

I decided to repeat next morning.

Started boss fight and found that all my whistles keys were not working. Almost died from dimorfs and pteras, but managed to change settings for whistles.

Killed boss at the end and got tek elems this time. Surprisingly all tamed sh*tty therezinos did better in fight than boss rexes and tek rexes. Rexes were died because got extra flame damage from dragon when i was changing settings, and also they stuck in golems. Theriz used 3-4 cakes and were on full health Oo.

Thanks .... Since I don't have any water dinos yet, I was only venturing just a bit off shore, as it was too risky to swim any farther without any protection or scuba.

 

The Wiki showed a few oil nodes in the bay of the Tropical Island South on the far east side of the map. (This is the island I spawned on, and am currently based on)

 

But after venturing into that bay 3-4 times, I've yet to see an Oil node.  I have not swum all the way across it, due to sharks. But I have explored the bay from many sides with no luck.

Once I get a shark, I'll be able to explore much better and I'm sure I'll find some.

the water under the floating island spawns basilos and you can harvest tons of oil from killing them (could also tame some and get oil passively)

Tame the Mosa first and enjoy the ocean.

No way! Squid first for the win! outclasses mosa in every capacity except for speed

so its better to tame mosa better my end game is to be able to farm squid for black pearls and tentacles

squids can grab mosas but not other squids. So if you're going to farm squid I'd recommend again, squid. Also I'm not sure what map you're on but on rag go to Viking bay with your squid and wipe out those eurypterids. You'll get hella black pearls

Hi all,

Really struggling with ARK just now, everything seems so stale... my servers are capped but there is noone really talking - figure that out! 

Anyway, Im not water expert but I tend to use Basis in the ocean as they cant be stunned or grabbed. Where people say use a squid or a Mosa, I tend to disagree as being grabbed by a squid or shocked by eels and jellies is way too much of a hassle. Basis lose hp as they dive deep but they have such a high health pool it really doesnt matter. They can withstand some nasty predators i.e. a good levelled and bred Basi can slowly get to the surface when a 145 A Mosa is ripping into you. You wont kill it and wont outrun it but you can get back from the lowest depths to the surface where he will turn and swim back down without dying. 

For ease and safety, just get a Basi for the sea :)

Anyway, still just harvesting metal at the moment just to help the tribemate extend our main base facility. Other than that, I will try and hatch a dino tomorrow night if I can get a little luck with the tame cap.

Hope you are all doing ok

Unofficial ragnarok-

Another chill night lol, mainly just restocking and a small mish to the mountains , after feeding and stocking up on narco I decided I need to get a war pig line started 

Found one on my islands mountain a event white and red,  she was a pain in the butt tho . Refused to go in the trap even when I lured her in she was like naww imma attack your wyvern . After a few bolas and a game of tag lol I down her . While guarding her in starve mode I got jumped by a lvl 240 yuti and his high level carnos ...and killed them all with a bite and one fire blast...john wick dont play . A pack of wolves thought they were slick too but I tranqd one and ate his pack

So I brought the dao home at 321 and named her strawburrah and the lavender wolf at 333 named him ryo after my moms dog and my wolf hoarding starts again lol

Xbox - Single Player - The Island.

Ended up moving camp to one of my alternative base locations, I just wasnt happy with the location I had chosen. Am now on the cliffs just north of the bay area north of red ob. Definitely more to my liking... atm anyway lol. Got down a basic 3x3 (again lol). Did a bit of scouting about for tames. Tamed up a couple of raptors including a 135 and also a really nice 145 flame red/orange parasuar for its turret mode. I really need to tame some utility dinos such as a doed and a beaver, might even just bypass the beaver and go for a theri, with the rates on the server a berry tame isnt too bad. So I got down a raft and crafted up my usual stone taming raft. Only thing is I really need to be careful of the leeds since they spawn on the map (cant remove on single player). Stocked up on supplies and set sail.

squid can't be grabbed by other squid either, and also have no problems dealing with jellies. Plus no need to run away as a tamed squid can down anything in the ocean including alpha mosa / alpha squid; and when they're hurt you can grab and attack which gives a vampire effect and heals you quickly

Still struggling with scale when trying to make my own ARK map and in a moment of madness or genius last night decided to change my scale references to in-game characters.  Dropping in non AI models of the relevant dinos - stacking where required.

So I now have a "Turtle back slope" or a "5 Giga hill".. an "Alpha Rex" cave height etc.  Who needs real world units of measure when you can have a bridge 4 Diplos long etc.

Servers are dead atm, waiting on Extinction to drop.  A friend booked the day off work but think I'm gonna leave it until Friday before I book a day off to make sure it definitely drops before then.

PS4 - The Center - Prim Plus - Single Player

 

So a couple of days ago, I took an Argy and flew to the snowy area to gather oil, since I remembered oil nodes being there. Along the way, I tried to harvest a bunch of fur, as I did not have any  fur armor yet. I was lucky that I stopped at a pink drop, and got a JM fur helmet, which helped. Upon arriving at a location with Oil nodes, I quickly put together my pre-built stone mini-base and put a bed, storage box with some extra gear down along with a fire. Warmed up,  then harvest as much oil as possible in that area. We then began the trek back to my main base, when night came, and I could no longer handle the cold, within seconds, even with a torch, I went from frosty to ice cube, to dying fast. I tried to make it to a safe spot and warm up, but ended up dying mid flight. 

Now I had a dilemma ... do I re-spawn at the mini base in the cold? or do I try again all the way from my main base?  Well I decided to try it from the mini base. I spawned in, grabbed the spare hide armor, torch and began running as fast as possible while still trying to get down the steep hill without hurting myself. I finally make it to the bottom of the hill, and am running to the area where I died, when I hear the blood curdling howls .... the wolves had seen me. I ran for my life, and just as my Argy spawns into view, I am taken down by the wolves.

Re-spawn back at the main base.... gear up AGAIN, and take my only other argy out to recover my body and oil/fur full Argy. By the time I fly across the map, and when my death beacons finally appear. That is when I see my Argy circling in a battle with a Rex, and other baddies. We swoop in, (the Argy I was on is the better fighter) and we eventually kill off everything. We land, and both Argies are down to about 20% health. Then I hear the howls again. We beeline it home,  and arrive safely.

Last night I take my weight argy out again, and this time we go to the water under the floating island in the Center, as I need pearls, and had not had any luck in the rivers yet.

Well I arrive , and see a lonely shark. low level, but I had earlier found a ASC saddle at a drop, so I decided to tame it up. I then decided to build a raft, I built a stone box base on top of it, and got it all outfitted with fireplace, storage, the works. I figured I would just travel around harvesting pearls and oil. With the new shark on follow and my Argy sitting on top of the raft ceiling, I take off looking for pearls. Finally find some (it was raining and storming NON-STOP) and I take the shark down to the bottom to harvest pearls.  Since this is Prim Plus, I have no Scuba gear, so I am limited in how long I can be under water. We are returning to the surface, when I see bright yellow damage indicators ... That's when I see it and Alpha Leeds is destroying the raft/base  that I had spent over an hour grinding out to make. I had no idea Leeds spawned in "lakes" I thought only oceans. Needless to say, I was crushed to see my raft get destroyed and my time wasted. I use my shark to eventually get my revenge and kill the Leeds. We then scurry to the nearest shore, as I need to unload some of the stuff as my shark is getting over weight. SO I am quickly building a storage rack, when I hear the fight music, and I turn around to see My shark is in battle against 5, yes 5 sharks including an Alpha shark, plus at least 1/2 dozen mantas.  There was nothing in sight when I parked him on the beach edge, but apparently they found him.

You all know how it ended. "He Dead!" I eventually managed to recapture the saddle from his body bag.

I then spent the next hour grinding out 6 dino gates and 1 behemoth gate to build a water pen. I then kited  the closest shark into it, and tamed him up. While he tamed, I get attacked by that gang of sharks again plus another Leeds.   The Alpha shark is damaging the stone gates, so I have no choice but to swim out and try to kill him. But each time I get close, Mantas attack me. 

I decide to just start tranq darting every shark including the alpha, and eventually I KO 4 sharks and the Alpha swims away with the Leeds. Iended up taming all of the other Sharks but lost when is woke up, and aggrod the alpha. the rest I was able to get safely into the water pen, where I hope they can be safe until I can make them some saddles and level them up, and then kill the Alpha.

With 500+ pearls and some obsidian as well, I take my Argy back to the main base. But on the way back, I spot an event red Bary near the edge of the floating Island waterfall. I kite it into the rocks, where it gets stuck, and I proceed to tame it up. Grabbed him with the Argy and flew back to base, where I called it a night.

This weekend, I will make up saddles and start clearing out the water to get all the pearls.  These default rates, really makes it scary, as my dinos are not OP, and so I have to be careful in every battle.
