The Island - Eve of the Tek Cave Event

Finished up preparations for the attempt at the Tek cave. Loaded up the replicator full of wood, hide, fiber and metal and respeced into crafting. Crafted up the final 4 theri saddles and 2 rex saddles and then a spare giga saddle. My squad consists of 11 theris and 5 rexes, all with ascendant saddles and one (a female) of which has been saddled up with a tek saddle. Had to grab that one from the Center as I seemed to have assembled a squad of pure males. I know d1nk has a couple of females but I wanted the variety. Treated all the boss dinos to a dyed saddle, got to show off my blue, cyan and yellow scheme  I am still deciding on if I should bring the giga and the yuty. 

Finished off and respeced into a tek cave stat build, basically pumped everything into health and fortitude with a bit of weight. Didnt see the point wasting levels into speed, melee damage or even stamina. I'll just need to kit up tommorow when I get home after work.

Theres been a contamination issue with the gacha crystal vault. Cracked opened some for the tek saddle and got a fair few silica pearls out of them lol

We're all so dead 😂

Yuty will be essential to our success

I believe that dinos found in caves are untameable. So you might be out of luck with that cave bear.

 

Thanks....only wasted 120 Narc darts, 40 Honey and 128 Mutton but lesson learnt. :)

Started Mining again to finish the roof on my home and collected rare flowers for my hive. After the patch things stopped working at home so had to re do my Water to get it working, looked like it was working but if I drank from the taps nothing happened. Re did them and boom it worked. But all my crops died. Also my green house now has random plots that are at 300% and then the one next to it has 0%. Not sure how to fix that yet.

Got on for a bit last night. Went to Island first to finish a few last minute things. Did a metal run, killed a Titan and grabbed some drops. A server member wanted to borrow our rex saddle for a few of his rexs, arranged that then I brought the guy through a swamp cave run. 

Hopped over to Rag to go on a spino taming spree to mix it up. Tamed a 145 spino and after much looking a 130 and 135. Brought all my spinos back to base, tamed 7x 130-145 already! Combed through my stats and picked the two best to make eggs. Threw the eggs in a fridge then went to bed.

Tek Cave today, ill be logging in about an hour and a half from now to get prepped!

Well this evening has been rather disheartening. Was planning a Tek cave event for the community on The Island before it switches to Scorched Earth next month, and typically the server crashes 2 hours before we start with no sign of it restarting.

Nothing worse then getting your hopes up for something only for outside forces to prevent you from succeeding. Spent a fair few hours prepping for it earlier today too. Damn you Nitrado :(

Since the Tek Cave wasnt going I spent some time breeding all my spinos ive been taming to get some combined stats. Out of 7 spinos 3 had good stats to combine. Two gens later got them into 224 babies M & F. Also got a HP mut ill keep seperate for now.

Made a bunch more Exceptional Kibble and transferred it to my trap. Did another round and tamed 2x 145 spinos. The first one oddly enough had the EXACT same HP, stam and Melee as my combined ones I bred at home. The second one had the best pretame stats ive seen yet and luckily came out with a slight melee boost. My current stats are an abysmal 5.1k hp (5.4 w mut) 1.6k stam 2.6k oxy 308 melee. The new tame is 325 melee so a tad boost.

Other guys wanted to use my trap so I let em and headed off to make dinner then head out for the night.

Had a day or so off, grinded today on the base, it’s a massive cylinder now. Got some crops going in a nearby water vein, got a few more tames, wanted to get some backup equus just in case and a flier. My first attempt, I went up to tame what I thought was an Eq, but it was a lvl 140 unicorn, didn’t realize it until after the taming started lol, that has been my main mount since I got it, I also tamed a 195 eq, and mistakenly tamed a lvl 85, So now I have 3 eq’s as back up mounts just in case. For a flier I went and tamed a lvl 120 ptera.

Went ahead and made some rifles, and got around 100 bullets for now. I have a crap ton of charcoal but need more spark powder.

Overall, pretty solid, productive day. These giga’s and allo’s are gonna make me have a heart attack tho. All of a sudden it seems like they’re out in numbers. Lol

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

After a long day of yardwork I hopped on ARK to relax.

The other day I tamed a 150 spino and got a crazy oxy roll, 3.6k all my others are 2-2.6k figure itd be handy.

Made good progress on my spino line today! Tamed 3x more spinos, 2 150s and a 140. The 140 had the highest pretame melee ive seen yet on a spino and it paid off, 355% compared to my 308 and newly 325. The others were okay, one of the 150s came out with good stam and weight.

 

Took them all home and bred my new melee one with my breeders, after about 20 eggs got a 241 hatch with all the stats. Ill do a bit of breeding tonight to queue up the eggs for combining the new stam and weight into it, then the oxy. My rough calculations should be about 280 hatch by then.

Made up 20 more exceptional kibble for more spinos in the future. 

 

The last bit of my night I spent collaberating mats onto The Island to make my Mek and Mek Shield attachment. Over 9500 ingots, 500 b. Pearls, 500 element, 3500 crystal and 5200 poly combined. Did a quick megapethicus for some element. Brought my daedon this time, was kind of fun.

Crafted the Mek and Shield and got 2.2% on Mek, 51% on shield. Tested the mek out, 340 melee. Rolled great hp and melee on it. Each sword swipe is over 1000 damage, pistol is 200-400 each hit (3 round burst) the only downside is the shield degrades durability at a high rate passivley. I threw it out once and it barely consumed 100 dura, went around pistoling and swording stuff for about 10 minutes and the shield dura drained about 1/3 from just being equipped (not even deployed!) 

This will be fun on Extinction. Our gigas do 1600-2000 a bite so its actually a viable option for OSD, given its not too squish. Enemies seem to take extra damage when within the deployed shield (from 1000 to 1400 per swipe)

Going to breed some spino eggs and preincubate them then head to bed

Had a DISASTROUS WEEKEND!!!

Trying to Tame a Trike to clear out some old wooden buildings so I can build there.

1st. Tamed a Trike in the area. Great. Set it on attack my target and was happily hacking away at a foundation with my trike helping.

After a minute got the message your Trike was killed by your tribe. What??

I was catching my trike with my hatchet and hadn't realised.

2. Later while at old base saw 2 trikes so tamed them both. Ok, put one on a basic raft to get to new location. Passing the swamp and a Crocodile ate my Trike. 

3. Put other trike in my armoured raft so crocodile proof. Was sticking what I thought was close to the shore when a  Leedsichthys one hit destroyed my raft. Me and trike made it to shore but alpha raptor came out of nowhere. My low level Trike put up a valiant fight but ran out of stamina and we both got killed. Went back to get my stuff and quit for the weekend. :(

I did a lot this weekend, possibly the most productive for the last 6 months. I finished my 277 100% imp Yuty only to be given an egg between 303 and 313 haha - i hate raising Yutys. I also got another Daeodon baby out and came out at 259 (only started a few weeks back so progressing really well). I then realised I'm missing a big Melee stat, and Stam stat so should be breeding out close to 280 in the next week or so.

I had no further progress on my Pteras - so many eggs now and nothing new to show for it. oh well, Ill keep on trying.

Then I had some good news... out of the blue, Alpha Tek cave run - starting in 15 mins. (It was midnight so I was debating whether to go or not... damn it, lets do it!) 

So quickly grabbed some Asc Flak, an Asc Shotgun and Ammo, a few canteens and some Prime Jerky, podded a pair of my 100% imp high level Rexes (30k hp and 1700 MD) and went off to Island. Met up with everyone at the lava entrance in the volcano and 19 of us proceeded to work our way through the caverns. Giga after Giga and we make it through to the first 'bubble'. Upon entering, I lost 90% of my HP and had a broken bone icon - quickly ate some jerky and nothing... jerky is not good for replenishing HP - I had rushed my preparation, but luckily 2 friends dropped me some burgers and medical brew. 

Entered the final cavern, 5 of my tribemates (across server tribes) were all around me and we worked as a unit jumping on each boss and then working on adds as and when we could... it was going rally smooth and then I got kncoked off my Rex and were separated for what seemed like an hr (possibly 45 seconds) running in and out of adds until someone pointed out a standalone Rex on the other side. Managed to jump on just in time before a defender clobbed me from behind.

We were just getting the last boss down when some tribemates were knocked from their Rexes and a tribemate made a few shots with his shotgun to finish off the boss as it was nearly dead... a slight lag and another tribemate walked in front of the shotgun... 4 of the 5 tribemates ascended from the ARK on Alpha... one died valiantly and sacrificed himself for the greater good.

1900hrs in and I have ascended off the ARK at Alpha. Thanks WC

Adjusted respawn of resources on Xbox. Set the timer to respawn faster 2 days since last saw metal at certain spot. Now I made it worse it spawns as soon as it's mined. 8 argies plus a full anky later it looks like I was never there. Have to wait for husband to fix it to correct settings last time I adjusted something it took days to raise a baby rex. I should stop doing that. 

Culled approximately 20 rexes from previous breeding line and about 15 argies. 

Preparing for ragnarok boss. Hopefully will get last of the spino sails today.

Yikes..... you certainly had one of those ARK days. A couple weeks ago, I tamed a beautiful max level event colored Argy. After it woke up, I needed to take a quick bathroom break, when I returned, the argy is dead, and my 18 year old cat is sitting on the controller. Somehow he must have activated the ASC axe in my hand, and killed the Argy.

PS4 - Ragnarok Unofficial

 

Logged on Friday and went to the Crazy boosted German server. no one else on, and I was bored, so after doing the quick chores, I logged of, and logged onto the Crazy Boosted American Tek server.  Once again, only a couple people on.  This server, is so boosted (element in drops) that I have literally 100,00+ Element in vaults alone.

And since they do have a limit to the # of animals you can have out  when online and offline, I don't feel like taming much nor breeding much, as I don't want all my dinos in cryo storage.

The reality is, as nice as the people are on this server, it is really TOO easy.  I don't mind working at it, so I think I may be quitting this server.  I need to decide soon, and let the Admin know, so he can wipe my base if I do.

 

So by now it is after dinner time on Friday, and I really don't know what to do.  But I decided I wanted to check a server that is clustered. So I find one and once again I'm a Beach bob. This server has a "Rules Center" right at Blue OB, and after decide that this might be a fun one to try. Boosted server, and unlocked engrams, so I am able to tame up a Ptera fairly quickly.  My club broke 1/2 way thru, so I had to punch it out.  On this server, the Level points for dinos and human are about 10% boosted for everything except Weight, which is about 100x Boosted. So needless to day, I never became encumbered.  A little too much, but "I'll allow it". lol

Started hitting the drops, and they are totally random. No TEK except some cryopods , no element, but thru about 12 beacon drops, the cave Ice cave 5 drops and the desert drops, I got kibble, metal building parts, rabies antidote, a few premade recipes items (Focal Chili, Lazerous Chowder, etc.) plus some ASC gear and ASC saddles. 

So after flying around the entire map, I decided to start a base in a different spot that my old favorites. I finally settled on the tiny island with the ruins steps that is on the south edge of the map. Jerboa is off to my left, and the peninsula with all of the megalanias is north of me, and north of the them is the Wyvern cove and cave.

So this island is not very big, but I also got a couple metal cliff platforms in the drops, so I began building my base. I then set off to find some Gachas, as I had seen them during my drop trips. tamed up a pair, and brought them back.  At this point, I noticed that Element was craftable in this server using Black Pearl and Crystal!  holy crap, one of gachas was a crystal and the other was a black pearl dropper! great luck.  So I began breeding them and ended up with 2 more useable pairs. dropping either crystal or black pearl. Except for one that drops organic Poly.

I went out and tamed a few shoulder mounts and tamed my first ever featherlight.   I used a wood cage to trap it.  

I spent all Saturday day grinding, and had a pretty good working base by the end of the night.

 

Despite going to bed very late on Saturday, I woke up earlier than normal on Sunday, and realized my day plans were ruined by the rain that was supposed to have ended the night before. So with another day inside ahead of me, I decided to jump back into the newest server.  

But it was Sunday morning, and that means kids.  HOLY CRAP, the admins were working constantly, as what appeared to be two siblings were fighting over dinos, and filling the chat constantly with their whining and demands.  After about 2 hours of it, I could take no more, so I logged off that server, and was going to travel to the clustered server (Extinction) But upon getting on the clustered map, I was quickly killed.  Turns out the Rag map is PvE, but the Extinction map is PvP. I wasn't aware that a clustered server could have both types on it.  Well, I'm too old for PvP crap, so I transferred back to the  Rag map base, and continues grinding the entire day.  By the end, I had a small Tek base, and I also tamed a colored Allo that was hanging around near the base. I also KO'd a Megalania in event colors, but it dropped into a enough water that it drowned. :(

PS4 Single Player 

ARK ate my Dinos!

A lvl 110 terror bird and a lvl90 saber tooth  both on wander in my dino pen with smaller tames ( microraptors, Dimorphs, etc) on follow.

The Dinos on follow are clustered at a spot in the yard, still on follow and will rush back to the spot if I move them but the Tburd and Saber are nowhere to be seen.

Ragnarok, running on a private server - PC. 

Since I have the day off and the wife doesn't, I decided to do some more egg hatching in Ark. I'm currently breeding Rexes, Spinos, and Gigas, and I had some eggs accumulated.

My Rex line has 4 mutations (x3 HP & x1 stamina). It was the first day of hatching eggs on the new 4th Gen line. Third egg in... DOUBLE MUTATION of HP + Stamina !!! My first useful double mutation. So after only three eggs cracked I'm jumping to a 6th gen line. 

My Giga line also had a Melee Damage mutation the other day. So cracked a few Giga eggs...  got a male breeder for the new mutation.
