So what did you do in ARK today?

Recommended Posts

First i did some grinding for my crossbow bp with 700 damage, then i went looking for some Allos. Got a level 80 female and level 108 (wild levels) male and did some breeding (only got one egg), but i didnt hatch it, because I found a lvl 84 Thylacoleo and tamed it. Then i had to do some reorganizing in my workshop, because i have too much weapons. So i built some large storage boxes for new weapons. Then i went looking for a Yuty and found a male and a female, seperated from each other. Unfortunately the male drowned and i killed the female accidently. But then i found a lvl96 Megatherium an tamed it. Then i turned of my console and did some studying for my math test on wednesday.

Xbox - Unofficial Nitrado Server - The Island 

Did a bit of organising about the base, repaired my ascendant chainsaw and did a bit of farming on obsidian mountain. Spotted a titanosaur near spino river so went back to base for my giga and walked to the titan. Killed the titan and harvested it up for hide. Later on I noticed a measly level 20 wild giga on the east side of obsidian mountain. Decided I could take it. Got on my giga, transfered my male giga from extinction for a mate boost and went out to take on the giga. Went well only lost about 10k health on my giga and I got the giga heart. 

Transfered across my snow owls across from extinction and continued my snow owl project. Combined 2 snow owl colours I had and got the colours I wanted into a male bird. Now I just need to breed the male with the female I have which has all the stats I need. At the same time I raised up an anky and fully imprinted on it. Been putting that off for ages but decided it was about time I had an imprited anky for farming.

Went back out to obsidian mountain and farmed up the metal and obsidian. Went well with my new anky, really should have done it sooner. Decided I should make a move on beginning to craft up some boss theri saddles so I filled up the replicator with enough resources to craft 4 ascendant theri saddles. Respeced fully into crafting skill and crafted up the saddles. Got 3 of the saddles with a 40% bonus which was great, the last one was barely boosted in armour. Only problem now is I now need to go back out and farm up all the resources again.

So it begins :) Tonight if I get on ill make a few more saddles. 

 

Forgot to add; Last night after I posted my story I fleshed out most of my boat to metal, nothing special but by accident figured out the old ceiling foundation extension trick while converting from Thatch to Metal. My next boat will be better designed with this in mind, the current one will work as a mobile taming pen / Gunship to clear out the rivers' extreme Ptera overpopulation. 

After that I combined all 60 element we had in dust form, then crafted up another Tek Gen for our water base teleporter, then a few Tek Bridges for giggles. Just one more teleporter to make, last I checked before I logged with the 3k ingots I farmed we still had enough poly and ingots to craft it. Just need more element!

 

Getting close to bosses. I know we have our 16-19 Theriz, were missing roughly 12 ascendant saddles though :P Probably beta brood / monkey (maybe Alpha monkey too) next weekend, depending on how much we can farm this week :)

I hope I left enough metal after I crafted the saddles. Left alot smelting up in the forge when I logged. Also nicked some poly in the fabby for the asc chainsaw but I am sure I replaced it later. Killed a few alpha raptor so theres some element dust.  So 4 saddles crafted 15 to go lol Thats alot of metal, hide, wood and fiber.

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 into the possibility of taming a high lvl bear ready for a cave run (would be my first run so it may not go well).

I also put a Ballista on the back of a one of Dinos so that might be a laugh to go on later.

Other than that, Ill be hopping on later with some friends and will put a few hrs into just socialising and doing a few little chores.

Today i breeded again my gigas and tex rex in extinction :)

The goal last night: Make a few theri saddles and that 2nd Tek Teleport. Started off with a metal run, then took the mammoth & theri out and slotcapped the mammoth. Got back and filled the wood vault, took my anky and teleported to blue, got more metal and obsidian. While the metal was cooking went on a huge hide run. Came back to the base with 40k hide and started sorting everything before i mindwiped.

 

Turned on the replicator and made an extra cryofridge for breeding projects, about 40 cryoballs and a Tek teleporter! Got my ingots together and had enough for 3 saddles. Mindwipe, only one saddle came with good % i.e: 136 arm roughly 47% craft. Also made some spare flak, after a small hide run had enough for another theriz saddle and then some but didnt want to do another 2 metal runs so I crafted this asc spino saddle we got from swamp cave. Ridiculous thing..151 armour naturally like 19k hide 2k paste and 2k pearls. Got lucky and it came out 199.8 armour! 

I now have 4 saddled Boss theriz, with an extra saddle for my personal.

 

After speccing back I finished off my boat about 95% , threw some turrets and for the first time used a keypad, great for turning on/off lights and turrets! 

 

I was bored after my boats maiden voyage so I grabbed my ridiculous sword santa gifted me and went out on foot. Made it to green ob and back, had a blast, thanks to my pump shotgun! I was walking through the Redwood daring any thylo to pounce me. Not a single one this time!

 

Logged for the night. Might add something I probably forgot :P Need to go back to my list keeping

Got on quiet late, had a few things I had to do after work. Continued with the snow owl breeding project, need to combined colour with stats. Got a male and a female which I can breed togther to better my chances at a successful hatch of a full stats with my white/blue/cyan colours. Keep hoping for a nice feather mutation to go with the blue and cyan. Did get a green feather mut but it didnt suit the blue. Stockpilled a bunch of eggs from the new breeders for the next time I am on.

Did a metal run on obsidian mountain and a smaller run up redwood mountain and filled up the forage. Did a wood run on my theri not realising d1nk had already filled up the wood vault. Finished off by making a wee dent in the masses of chitin we have in a vault and crafted up a bunch of cementing paste.

Just got on for a short one today, took a bred megatherium and went to the swamp cave on my frog for some paste. About half way through I tossed out the mega for dps support (wow im doing this from now on!) While i lopped up a few flies for paste, then mounted the Mega for the rest. I got unlucky with the last drop, as I hopped off I got spat on by a ceiling Artho, lucky I have lots of HP ans carry custom food. 

On the very last crate got an Ascendant Rex saddle bp! 105 arm!!

Went home, threw the paste in the vaults and logged

Eu Abberation Official

Busy weekend but another quiet one, feel like I got a lot done, mostly alone on the server apart from a couple of visitors probably just logging in to reset timers, I did hear a rock drake gliding above which scared me and kept me inside peeking out the windows until I knew the coast was clear, yeah im that person lol.

Taking advantage of the event, I got all the mats for the new chem bench, industrial cooker and converted all my base to metal, I seem to get much more done when im solo.

I feel im actively being lulled into a false sense of security due to the low population of the server, decided to break out of this and craft 50+ crop plots for species X, gotta say I do miss the old species x animations.

Placed all crop plots and set up an irrigation system and all full to the brim of fert thanks to my trusty beetles, now to journey for the seeds.

Hiked down the river on the trusty new Spino ( not the 145 I had hoped for but a level 100, better than nothing I suppose), this is my first Spino since the TLC so enjoying the new features, my trusty roll rat (Rat Slater) is on follow to get the seeds when we arrive.

We arrive to a pretty uneventful scene, not much wildlife in view, that relaxes me :)so 10/15 mins later I have enough seeds so head back home

A few hours later all plants are in full bloom, I start to think it would look nicer with a mix of species Z and X but that can be for another day, my base is starting to look the part, down side it may start to attract some unwanted attention but hey cant stay in a 4x4 forever, I suppose it looks like im protecting some great loot or high level tames but who ever raids me will be disappointed to find an empty vault haha.

Tonight I will be doing my first aberration cave venture, I love the atmosphere of cave runs, something tells me its not gonna go smooth

but time will tell ....

The center small tribes xbox

Wife and I went cross server raiding again to another ragnarok server. Really want to cross server raid instead of raiding our own. Chose one with a smaller population to try and avoid being raided ourselves by griefers on manas unlike our last attempt. 

Was really disappointing to start with as I transferred from our home server at the same time as the game crashed so it took me three to four attempts to get back on and about ten minutes. This is because every time I got back onto the rag server it would freeze on the upload character screen. Good times. 

After about 20 to 30 minutes of flying from red ob, through the red woods, over the mountain range, through the desert and into the snow we hadn't found a single unraided base. Finally we found a large alpha base with a 15 day timer which had been raided. Flew in and checked the burner, nothing. Checked the smithy, bingo! 3k gunpowder. Thank you sir. 

Blew into the base, found the owner logged and took their journeyman flak and riot gear. 

There was no pvp or even a single other base we could find afterwards so we uploaded all the gunpowder and logged.

I would love to say me... but I would be lying. We have a rag base right on the beach by the lighthouse, absolutely serene it is. Or should I say was. 

Some buggers kited a Giga into the water and around my walls and from the water came into my beachside paradise home and wiped out 3 Wyverns and chomped on much of the woodland chalet that was perfect for feeling like you were in another world. 

So basically we have replaced the many glass windows that were smashed, raised the main walls, and closed off the water with a behemoth gate and further metal walls so nothing can get in. 

The base itself has had nearly every panel replaced with metal - it doesnt look as nice but its a lot more secure - damned griefers.

Started replacing the wyverns with 4 180s and a 185 Black and White poison so my tribemates will be on new flyers now :)

Nice ! I am dreading looking at the crafting costs lol

About the same as our Theriz saddle, 10k hide 2k ingotz 6k fibre or something. Not bad, really

 

At least we have options if we feel like switching to rexs :)

Single Player Island

 

flew around to some places I hadn’t been before. I’m actually looking for a place to set up a new base. Ideally somewhere I can take all my dinos, rather central so I can go everywhere. At the moment I have most of my stuff on herbivore island, which is fine, but far away from everything. Any suggestions as to where I can settle?

We have our Island base at 50 50. Literally the most central location, all types except snow tames near. I would recommend this spot, theres a few spots you can build at 5050, whether its on the river side cliff plateu (our spot) or across in the redwoods, down a bit towards red ob or many other flat spots along the main river. 

 

Theres a spot in a sort of 'canyon' just towards green on the main river, across from that fallen redwood tree that bridges the river that ive always wanted to build at, beaver dams right outside your gates!  Also another spot towards red, across the river from swamp cave theres a big rock cliff thats raised up along the river, had a base there and loved it. Very close to swamp, redwoods, volcano and even (again) beaver dams just below you in that river bay. Also across from this towards redwoods in arguably the best fishing spot ever, that small deep pool along sandy part by swamp

Newly named and consolidated cluster, Western Canadian ragnarok ranch/island paradise/scorched limited

Been playing alot since then Christmas break. The group decided to ascend the island and write off scorched by the new year. Alot of time was spent running the artifacts and collecting the tributes for each alpha boss. Tribemate had been busy developing the army for each battle prior so we had a good healthy set of mega, theri, and allos that were used for the brood, dragon, and megapith respectively. He did well in raising them and the yutys we rode into battle. Flawless and quick finishes.  

Overseer went a bit different.  We went yuty only with flak and alot of shotty and rifle rounds. The cave was surprisingly easy.  We ran passed the first giga and only killed what we needed to kill. The last giga we ran by and pulled into the lava.  Port up and engage overseer. It took time due to the lack if dps  but we systematically tried to boost, attack, dodge the dismount ray and the cluster of defense units.  We lost one yuty and he was left on foot like mid battle.  I kept  close watch over him and provided support for the other while he focused on attack.  It worked out pretty well and we managed to take it down without further issues. Yay alpha ascension weeeooo. 

Finally done with the island we move our efforts to scorched. We set out simply to get manticore, notes and chronologically move to the next ark...but I'll continue that later.

Didn't get on last night as expected so having just over an hour spare this morning I decided to log on to our unofficial PvE Extinction server and boss the bosses - well 2 of them at least - Ice Titan and Desert Titan.

Logged on, grabbed tributes and headed to the desert cave on my Managmanr - threw out my Giga pokeball (cryopod) and walked the cave on Gina ignoring as much as possible.  Got to the end in only a few minutes, threw out my Managmanr and activated the portal.

Made short work of the Desert Titan kill by using Ice Breath from the highest land point where I just had to avoid the lightning bolts and shoot from the ground.

40 minutes left... a couple of stamina stops later and I'm at the Ice cave entrance.  I decided to head in on my Managmanr... purlovias dismount me but got Tek gear on so jetpack up and out of there quickly whistling the Managmanr to follow me I run (jetpack over) the rest of the cave and activate the portal.

Ice titan spawns in and aggros the rhinos/wolves etc. that are already out there leaving me to avoid any attack and keep my distance to kill it off...... time for work!!

Tonight we will no doubt re-do all Titan kills for the trophies and loot then not sure when but will eventually (possibly weekend?) re-tame them all and have another go on the King Titan - Gamma.

Got on last night for a little bit. Went to log in and I guess The Island was down so I hopped over to Ragnarok. Didnt know what to do, so hopped on the wyvern and went to get some drops from the desert hopefully get some more stuff for rag like giga saddles and some gas masks. 

 

Spent a few hours getting desert drops and desert sky drops hoping for another chainsaw. Decided i should get some Thyla going, since I really didnt know what to do so i went to the highlands with some cakes to get some sheep to tame the thyla. Flew around for over an hour killing everything trying to force spawns. Gave up and did another drop run.

Came back about an hour later and continued killing trying to get one ovis to spawn...no luck. Did some googling and people suggested staying in one spot, so I parked near where I know sheep spawn and went AFK. Flew around again killing, no luck. Tried again to AFK in a different spot, now 2 hours have passed on my second run and I gave up and went home, went to bed. The Island will probably be up next time I play so ill just grab a few sheep babies to keep on ragnarok incase.

If you want a good thyla I could transfer my breeders across ?
