SMH ... I just did the same thing again last night.  Was taming a near max level Ptera, and after putting the kibble in, I set the controller down to grab a beverage. When I did, the controller slid down, and it made my wyvern that I was sitting on, make the biting action, and it 1 chomped my sleeping ptera.  I can't even blame the cat this time.

It gets better..... last night, I killed myself TWICE in a 10 minute span, by using my max level Poison Wyvnern too close to a dino, and I got the cloud back in my face, instantly killing me.  I've had more "noob" moments over the last 2 weeks, than the previous 2 years.

The Center

Logged on for the first time this week, havent been on since the failed attempt at attempting the Tek Cave on Saturday, needed a break from Ark for various reasons, been binge playing Halo and catching up with Game of Thrones instead. Also been a bit down aince I didnt get either of the the jobs I was interviewed for including the one I had my heart set on, gutted and heart broken but on to better things hopefully.

Was going to do some more prep for the cave but decided to work on my shoulder pet predicament and try to sort out breeding pairs. Taking the opportunity to work some new blood into the lines while I am at it. Also bred up some pikachu jerboas in anticipation of the The Island server rotating round to Scorched.

Nabbed one of dinks shinehorns from The Island since it was a much needed female and it appears to be part of the lost line anyway. Bred it with one of the surviving males and got a female with the stats, just need to select the colour, going to add the red from dinks shinehorn into the new pair.

Mated the surviving female glowtail with one of the glowtails that d1nk tamed during the Easter event since I had no surviving males. Going to keep the line the same apart from adding in the yellow from the Easter glowtail.

Hatched up the 4 spare featherlight eggs I had in an attempt to get a female as all I had left were males. Thankfully 1 of the eggs hatched out pink female and I kept one of the hatchling gold males and I have a breeding pair of featherlights ready to go again. 

Started my attempt at breeding my cyan blue event coloured otter in with the high levels but no luck apart from a low level test otter to see how it looks like with a cream belly, looks good.

Finished up exploring The Center on my rock drake while I waited for my current raises to finish up. Ok I'll admit it, I was half hoping to maybe run into some of the new bases and see if I could see any familiar looking shoulder pets. I eventually spotted a taming trap next to a beaver pool and looked around. Spotted a cluster of dinos and a base inside one of the ruins and snuck in to have a look. Obit camerad to sneak a peak inside, and boy do those featherlights look familiar. One of the shinehorns looks familiar too. Think I found my theif, not that I like pointing fingers.

Productive breeding day today. Got all my wild stats combined now, 278 hatch spinos. Made a m/f pair for breeding and mutating then hatched about 30 more eggs for mutations. Combined my first melee mutation into a stud male for my first bit of stacking - then hatched 2 more clean 278 females to aide this.

Got a HP mut, stam mut and another (same stat) melee mut, theyre sat aside raising. 

Did a few stone & wood runs and premade a load of behe gates / assorted base building bits. Set off to the desert farm area. Our current base is terrible for big breeds so I plan to make the desert farm our main big breeding area and we'll have a tek gen here soon enough equipped with teleport etc once we allow ourselves :P Set some foundations down, sunk some inline with the interior structure and marked out a teleport pad and breeding barn area for future building.

Tomorrow ill hop back on Tek Cave prep and maybe some more spino taming see if I cant get some better HP

I logged on, traded an old 241 Quetz with 6k weight for 5k ingot and then popped to get a 960MD Rex egg with 27k HP

I flew around a bit, socialised, mocked my allies and then went on my way. Oh, and got some more eggs for hatching this weekend ;)

It was a short visit to the ARK last night but it was worth it for the few things :)

Started mutation stacking the spinos today. Had a few muts ive been holding onto to test - works wonderful. Sorted my clean f's out in a spot in the side yard then imprinted myself a spino from the first mix of stam/melee muts.

Farmed up a load more stone for the new base then did a metal run. Loads of metal at obsidian isl, love it. Transferred over 1.5x mats for a transmitter to the island plus some extra for a few tek doors for the new place.  Gathered everything and flew off to the new place.

Did some fiddling around with small builds then started on the breeding pen. I originally planned to do an actual wall around the base but after a few attempts I wasnt happy and started throwing up behe gates instead. Going to continue to work on this a bit currently then might switch it up later by hunting more spinos.

The Island

Didnt get on for long tonight, just focused on a bit of Tek Cave prep for our attemp at it tommorow night. Hopefully the server doesnt go down like last week.

Started off with a quick trip on the basilo round the deep ocean looking for ammonite for the bile. Went into the western sea cave for the loot as well  Didnt get much of note but I did run into a wild dimorphodon in the artifact chamber which I have never seen in all the times I have run the cave and I have run that alot. Found a deepsea crate in the ocean with a nice new ascendant giga saddle and a ascendant shotgun. Shotgun will be nice for the tek cave. Got about 200ish bile from the trip which should be enough for what we need. Going to craft the darts uo fresh before we head into the cave.

Did a bit of narcoberry and tintoberry farming and made up a few stacks of medical brews. Also crafted up some soups and currys just in case. Geared up full of riot with a back up set. Also packed a few peices of ghillie for the tek cave and some fur for the overseer arena. Ill just need to fully kit out tommorow with ammo and medical brews as well as anything else I have forgotten.

Took out my ptera and tamed some raptors, however on the way back both my raptors and Petra died to a mantis swarm after literally slaughtering everything else in their path. Went out and found a pair of 145 ptera’s, tamed them. Took one out so I could tame an argy. Made a 3 gate trap and tamed a 140 argy. Took them back to base and noticed more allos around my base. So I created a trap with door frames and a ramp. Led the allos up the ramp and into the trap, killing the low levels and then taming the highest, only two lvl 60’s blah, but needed some Carnivores. So I have 2 allos almost at lvl 100 so not bad.  Started on the second story of the base as well. Happy Memorial Day weekend to everyone

Busy one today! Grind fest. Ive been picking away at one of our new base spots in the desert. I wanted this base to be the one we finally put TEK into. First, I had to make it a base worthy of some TEK enhancents! 

I chose the abandoned farm in the desert. Walled up the main hut best I could outfit it with all the goodies and even wired it despite future tek plans. Got vaults, crafting stations, cryofridges and all that jazz. Next was the breeding barn. Our current one is lacking space for big tames / loads of tames so thats the theme of this one. 8x10x8 high standard shed, lower level for breeding with a nice staircase up top where the greenhouse is located. Half the top area is enclosed the other open. Despite the ugly behe gate sticking out 6 walls higher (thus inspires my most recent suggestion post; half-height behe gates) it looks pretty good. Got hidden AC's and plenty of fridges. Even boxed in 3 cryofridges.

 

Built a taming pen in one corner, had to perimeter in behe gates because very uneven landscape. I put a small wall mimicing the natural ruin wall in the front giving me a view of the river, behe gates in the back towards desert. Good thing because theres already a giga about 2 renders away lol

After I had it all built, took like 6 hours of multiple trips out to get stone, metal and about 15,000 ingots plus poly, black pearls and element dust transferred to the island for the TEK pieces (im still running 1.5x exchange to myself if I need to cross server craft - so the tek pieces cost a lot.)

At first I only brought over cryofridges, gates, a transmitter and one tek behe for my breeding shed but I kept farming and decidetransmittergoing TEK here, for my 1.5x exchange again. Back to farming. Got up to a Tek Genny, sleeping pods and im currently farming for a teleporter. Also got mats saved for an industrial forge for here - though I might save it and make a public teleport / forge area above Desert metal mountain area. Unsure yet.

Im taking a small break and  might not get on later so I decided to write up now. If I get more time later tonight ill get the last bit done before we tackle tek cave tomorrow

Pretty much had a accidental nap then got back on for a few hours. Sleep schedule is all messed up the wife and I are both sick. Ive been sick for a week and she just got it the other day, go figure.

 

Got all my TEK pieces sorted, spent awhile jumping back and forth from Island to Rag (farming on rag for them) Ill allow a replicator finally after TEK Cave. Made a tele, gen, trough and industrial forge. Decided to do a public teleport area ontop Desert Metal mountain equipped with public forge and chem bench (oil and watet pumps too) Farmed for these on The Center.  Soon enough all this will be back to one - once we take out Rag gamma boss.

 

Got back home, with two teleporters now I got to see there were two other public ones made by another player, one at the furthest desert drop and one near the Scar. Neat! Fiddled around base a bit then logged off. Its nice having Tek pods again. Tomorrow ill start farming for a Replicator and another grinder for the new base after tek cave is done.

Hosted the Tek Cave event on alpha for my community before the server switches to Scorched Earth next month. Failed but still had a lot of fun. We pretty much determined our fate when a load of tames fell into the lava on the way through but the boss fight was hilarious for those of us on foot. Lasted quite a while until the dragon form munched me due to no more dinos drawing aggro. It will be months before The Island comes back into rotation but I’m sure we’ll be prepared to jump straight back into the action next time.

As Salty has already said we attempted the tek cave at Alpha level (Go big or go home right ?) last night. It went not too badly all things considered. Myself, d1nk and Salty formed the core of the army with Salty bringing his rexes and me and d1nk bringing in our boss theri squad with a mated pair of rexes each, I went in on yuty. A few other people joined to reinforce the ridden ranks. I really should have worked out the fear roar sooner but probably wouldn't have made much difference.

Our biggest problem was losing tames into the lava, one of my rexes pretty much went straight in there without seeing any combat. That turning circle... You really need to keep a tight leash on the tames as they either fall into the lava with the pathing or tames chase wild dinos into the lava. Thankfully I managed to keep a hold of 4 or 5 of my theris till the overseer.

The Overseer went not too badly considering our loses in the tek cave. We made it to the second version of the dragon before we were all wiped. The theri line did themselves proud I have to say. For me my yuty eventually succumed to the first dragon I think at which point I hoped onto a surviving theri and continued on with that and three theris on follow. I went down when all the surviving theris died to the second dragon. 

For next time I would maybe bring more theris each with more veggies cakes and try to save the unridden dinos for the overseer, its to risky to let them loose in the tek cave, have ridden dinos try to do most of the munching in the cave. Tbh we probably dont even need extra theris just make sure more survive to make it to the overseer arena. 

What can I say it was a great laugh and loads of fun, a great way to send of the Island server with a bang as it switches to Scorched at the end of the month. Would do it again definitely, Alpha wasnt nearly as bad as I thought. Saying that me and d1nk losing 15 or so imprinted theris between us each with ascendant saddles worth 150k worth of hide and goodness knows hiw much metal intotal is a but of a bummer but hey, good fun. Also RIP Yutyrannitar (my yuty) my main mount for all of our boss fights until now.

As the others said already, most of our day was for not Sunday. We were doomed from the first corner.. next time more prep will go into ensuring the dinos dont get lost into lava.. what a mess.

Other that the TEK cave I spent a lot of time on Ragnarok. Glad I did! Something to look forward to after the dissapointment hahah. Prior to the cave was on Rag, doing some touch ups to the new base. Went for a cactus sap run, I love building in adobe! Looks good and is very clean-cut. Reminded me of building in metal.

Converted most of the main base to adobe. Not sure how much ill keep in stone - I like the mixed stone and adobe we got going on. Added a crafting area to the base - not sure exactly where my final vision is heading with this place, it needs to be tek worthy and high-production worthy as most my bases haha. Looks like ill have most of this upcomming week planned already so (maybe) not much time for ARK! Need a short break anyways heh

Diablo 3 is calling my name, new unique season for this ladder so might pop in to that for a bit still unsure. Love me my grind games.
