Anarki

So what did you do in ARK today?

Recommended Posts

I tamed a 145 Giga that I've had my eye on for a while.

I used the metal gateframe method since I'm all by myself. First run I didn't get the final gate placed right and she got out. (Almost lost my argy!) Second time I was prepared for her to pop out, so she didn't bite me when she did. I decided to relocate my trap to flatter ground hoping that would help, but then I had to keep running her in because she kept coming in crooked and missing the trap.
After several tries, I got her in and was shooting her with tranqs, and the SERVER CRASHED. When I got back on, it had reset back to before I trapped her, so I had to do it all again. Such a mess, but I got her!

I named her Bertha.

Muddled around the base a bit today, found a Velonsaur egg in my fridge so I hatched it, put a few imprints on it and went for a fun run. I like these, id like to get one fully leveled. 

Uncryo'd my newest enforcer to take it for a run, my previous MC one I made has been dubbed a speed one (if you havent.. make a speed Enforcer.. wow.).but even as a hlvl craft came out with 1.2k hp.. they are extremely squishy so my new one I leveled mostly hp, some weight stam and a little speed

Went for a run about and my first pack.of raptors I encountered almost killed the enforcer. Hightailed it back to base with 100 hp left, recryo'd and set in fridge.

 

Cloned one of my 150 griffins, forgot it had real nice stats! Had to go so logged off for awhile.

Got on later and went on a swamp cave run, got some paste and a few nice blueprints: 150 arm theriz saddle bp (lol 3 nice ones now) 85~ arm MC Hyena meatpack bp and a few random assorteds. 

Logged off for the night

Wife and I logged in to find our base had been raided, all turrets destroyed and all tames slaughtered by a mana. Tribe called sif/ill/us or something equally as teenage like. So three weeks is the new record it seems. 

Such a shame because we had achieved a lot for a two person team in such a short period of time. Just now contemplating whether to start a new somewhere, recruit others in a different time zone or just have a prolonged absence and enjoy not playing for a bit.

Dont let it defeat you guys! I enjoyed your stories. Maybe its time for some revenge ops against this childish tribe? Someone around here has to play the same cluster and can supply you with some stuff to get on your feet!

Continued the managrmr breeding project, now that I have two breeding part stats females hopefully itll speed up the process a bit. Struck gold on the first batch. The first popped out the perfect stats white male, while the second popped out the perfect stats white and red female, so I now have my final breeders. This means I can now breed up personal use manas and have an option of colours, could be tommorows plan and means I can open up the breeding barn again. 

While I waited for the manas to mature I bred up some beelzebufo for swamp cave runs. I kidnapped d1nks frog at the swamp cave out post and also the other one at the waterbase. Bred up a three eggs at the waterbase in the makeshift pen, never bred frogs before so it was a new experience. Noticed the first had a mutation but it was only a food stat mut by the look of it. Fully imprinted all three and returned the orginal frogs to where they belonged, shhhhhh d1nk'll never know. Crafted up three ascendant saddles and cryopoded 2 of the frogs for safe keeping. As the new managrmr breeders had finished maturing I nuked the two mid stats breeding females with my lightning wyvern and kept the wild tames cryoed for safekeeping. 

Finished off by converting alot of the chitin we have stored in a vault into cementing paste, ate a mindwipe tonic to respec into crafting skill and crafted three ascendant megatherium saddles. Now I need to go on a cementing paste run at somepoint for more of those saddles lol.

Missed a giga egg. Didn't even find a body. Sad, because it was not from my gigas, but I can get a new one when my ally's female is ready again. Started breeding tons of animals. This does excite me a lot, but also terrifies me because I know how much I need to do in order to extract 5 different stats and like 3 colours from a pack of 6 dinos into one or two. Started breeding otters, they're the most adorable things!

Last but not least, my ally paid me a visit with his op wolfie, and now I have 18 females pregnant. Expecting it to be really hectic in like 40 min. Hope none will die. All hail cryopods and daeodon's ability to heal.

So was going to just let everything we had uploaded to the obelisk decay and take an extended break from ark after recently being wiped. After pondering on it throughout the day though I couldn't just let it decay. I had to get back to our base but the only tame I had left was a crypod argie with no saddle so ran around on blue island for over an hour gathering enough chitin for an argie saddle. Ended up grabbing my left over c4 from the obelisk and blowing into bases to try and find some. Unfortunately after expending all my c4 i had a massive amount of gunpowder I'd robbed and about 20 chitin. At this point the decay timers had about an hour left so all i could do was kill as many bugs as possible. Ended up getting it sorted with half an hour to spare after originally having over two hours. 

Flew to the base and discovered we actually have quite a few turrets still up so I hid all our gear and logged. I think we'll probably end up taking a few nights off and should then come back to the game with a fresh perspective, just hoping my bed is still there when I do. Cant get to our location without a flyer.

The night started off slow, just slummin around the base, grabbed some drops while letting the gachas work, nabbed a 117 arm baryonyx saddle BP! Well.. gotta make that now! Went about organizing the mats, hatched some Megas for future bosses and gathered the mats into the replicator. I had enough for two saddles and a megatherium saddle (sorry Hide!)

Went to make some mindwipes, made more narcs, stims, cakes, made a couple thousand paste from chitin then mindwiped and crafted. All 3 saddles got good % and popped a bary saddle into Saltires vault, we were right out of paste now so i did a large swamp cave run, also got to level the new mega for bosses.

Got back with 8k paste and a few goodies. Decided I was going to restock artifacts for Brood, had a thought earlier in the day and planned to execute it; Transmitters at the pain artifacts. Crafted two transmitters then went on a huge metal run, filled both forges right up.

After that went and ran the Hunter, placed a transmitter, vault and bed down there for easy bed-run artifacts (works like a charm btw) Only problem.is  I placed the trans poorly by accident and no pick up :( Oh well. Still.works

 

Nabbed 3 artifacts, also a couple clever and devourer. Got my tames together and threw them at blue, loaded up 10 theri with 5 megas and a yuty and slammed out gamma brood, easy (as expected) (btw saltire - 500 element)

Did another Hunter run and then decided to kill brood again, for fun. Did that then loaded up more and knocked out Easy ape just for the trophy. All were easily doable, I could probably get away with only yuty + 5 mega ans a few theriz for farming easy brood. Brought a velonsaur on turret mode for all bosses, just cause :P 

 

Got back and made a whack of poly, and a few pieces of tek. Gathered up some tames and items and went to Extinction. Decided to find some OSD,want those quality tek bps.. Flew the wastelands on my owl for hours... not a single osd or vein spotted then called it a night.

I believe alpha brood is in order this weekend, all our megas plus 9 or 10 theriz should do it.

Thanks for the bary saddle ! Will be good for my cave bary :) Sounds like youve been busy. 

lol you beat me to soloing the gamma brood. I shall try the same when I mcraft up a few more saddles. Guess I should start preping for the alpha run.

Should team up on Extinction to do a red OSD drop at some point !

I agree! Might be worth tribing there solely for farming Res OSD / Titans 

The only thing I really want is some quality tek armour blueprints. I wore my tek helmet through all the caves and its the best! Even has built in night vision :P Also ran the devourer with just tek armour... fun!!

Decided that it would be best to use the same character across the three servers, so I started off by overighting my extinction character with my main character and had the admin add me back to my tribe. Going to be so much simpliar now to jump between servers and make the imprint situation much better.

Hoped back to the Island and bred up my manas for personal use. Bred up four with the perfect combation of colours. A pure white male and female, and a red and white male and female. Imprinted all four and cryoed all but one. Two of these shall be going across to Extinction.

Spotted a titan while mucking around with my new mana, so grabbed the giga and chainsaw and went and took out the titan. The hide situation is much better now lol. Cooked up some veggies cakes at which point my internet seemed to start hiccuping so I called it a night.

Awesome! We will do that then. The merger will be when an admin is around cause.. yeah. So glitchy. Will make things a lot easier, start slowly setting stuff to personal owned, tribe ridden (set personal, unclaim reclaim dinos on Ext)  Illdo the same

Speaking of which: @SaltyMonkey I accidently stumbed across your Extinction base last night, didnt realize you were pretty much above me :P It is BEAUTIFUL. I love the symetry and how you used the natural ground to shape it. (Was amazed at the perfectly straight back fence lines too lol)

I used the poles of the thatch foundations (build mode view) to line up with the outside of the pool, leaving a perfect 14 foundation gap across the water. I also never thought it would line up perfectly with the outer part of the building. The greenhouse isn’t technically snapped to the rest of the building either.

PS4 – we were supposed to be doing the alpha dragon at the weekend but got sidetracked doing some giga and yuty raising. Got some great colour mutations on both. I was looking at the newly acquired zino saddle bp in the vault and set mycontroller down, accidently dropping the bp. By the time I realised it was gone forever! So, my mate spawned in about 200 BPs and we found the one that was closest. Needs an extra 5k hide per saddle so we have some extra grinding to do. oops…

PC with my daughter - Unlike PS4, where we have time between mating set to 0.001, I have it set to 0.5 here for more longevity. Been having issues on Herby island where we’re doing our breeding. Dinos forever sinking into the ground, which isn’t the end of the world, I can pick them out with an Argie. Anyway, I had a new breeder male Ank that I’d lost sight of. Took out the S+ euthanizer gun to kill some unwanted young and it turns out my breeder male had sunk under the map exactly where my young were. The gun targeted him instead and he died. Happy days! So, I set the time between mating to 0.01 and spammed out 100 eggs. Got a load of fantastic colour mutations for my troubles. Then set the timer back. Spent a few days farming and farming metal and crystal to finish off our Carno island base, which is now operational other than some of the finer detail. Spent yesterday afternoon there with my daughter. Tamed a bunch of scorpions and she solo tamed her first male and female rex which was sweet. So we will have the eggs for a Quetz tame next weekend. Got a kibble tame on a 145 saber as well with decent stats, just need a mate for it now and we can breed them up so she can do her first cave soon. Hopefully the ark gods will spawn in some high level rexes on carno now. Other than the 115 alpha that is currently roaming around. Need to take some disposable argies into battle with that tonight.

Just jumped on briefly tonight to check all was good and noone had destroyed the multiple beds I put down out of spite. Got to start work at 1am so had to make it a quick one.  Logged onto the wife's character as she's on extinction 65 currently and just had a run around sunken forest to look for gachas. It's crazy between tonight and two or three times I've flown round there I have not found a single wild gacha. Mental.

This weekend I was definitely back to my usual. We had 3 Rexes, 3 Gigas, a Thyla, a Ptera, a Spino and an Allo all being raised. Tribemate and I tried out the new imprint timer with cryo - happy days! I have my Giga ta 50.9% raise and 49% imprint so with this I should bet a 97% imprinted Giga but hopefully a lot quicker than its taken me to get to 50%.

New Rex line is already started and these are replacing the old 702MD line we had only just bred up. We will still keep Alpha team as its a mix of Red, Yellow, Cyan, White, Grey and Orange Rexes - I just love the colours, but want to find a blue one now haha

I took over my spare 72% imprinted Giga (lvl292) over to Extinction and tribemates and I took on a 50k ele vein.. smashed it and was over the moon with the 230+ element we gathered from it. 

This week will now be about raising the above dinos and I will probably work hard on the Allo and Ptera lines for the next few weeks as I havent managed to get any new Pteras stats in ages... still hatching clean 310s but I cant get my latest clean stamina on there (only a difference from 487 to 495).

Allo popped out at 231 but I havent really tamed many, but its got a Black Body with golden scales so looks really mean - I will need to improve upon the 349 melee but its a start.

Overall, a good weekend :)

Logged in, unfreeze Gigas and baby velos( got nice pair in exchange for rock drake eggs :) ). Unfreeze rest of babies so now i have gigas, velos, theriz, ankys, argis, wyverns, rock drakes, rexes and one purple mighty flying pego! So much mouths to feed so i go out and happy slaughter everything at river. :D

Together with friend we dance for ARK gods, they hear our prayand finally send us a light. When drop land we did one beta BM and alpha ape. Only beta BM because after visiting at dragon lair we lost 5 rexes.

Refilled bins with dragon milk and venom so my and ally young drakes and wyverns don't starve. 

Jumped at EX for dust farming so i can finally finish another deal, also crafted rest structures wchich are part of trading after that i reloged to AB. :) In last days got 180 lvl rock drake egg so my friend can try raise his own at AB. In meantime our IS server crashed so we do little reorganization in our AB base. 

Rest of the day i spend on farming, hunting, taking care of babies, thinking about improvementes in my base and future projects. Not bad weekend. ;D
