(Official, Valguero) Sapphire is fully grown and fully imprinted. Saddled her up and went for a bit leveling/meatrun. She's pretty good at killing stuff (no wonder - even pre-imprint her melee was above 300%!), Stamina is good as is, maybe 1-2 points will be put into it. All points gained from hunt went into weight, which got her to a bit over 1500 - worse than Snowy at the moment, but Snowy is an old argent who had many level-ups, so Sapphire will be better than her soon. Much better - if Smart Breeding to be believed, fully leveled in weight she'll have 4284, which is awesome, and even if I do put one or two points into stam instead, the overall result would still be incredible, making her my best weight dino of all.

I have a 4.4k weight argy. You will never be able to farm with anything else ever again ūüėā

In the middle of feeding babies for boss battles when server has crashed and been refreshing to log in desperately to get in and save them. That will be one day of full egg hatching, meat runs and raising rexs that will stuff me up for a week.

 

not to mention all my snow owl babies.

btw this is an official server!

After killing my first boss, I'd already accepted that anything else would be an anticlimax. I did do a lot of work on the base, including adding three trophy wall mounts and fixing some of my badly aligned things. I have the broodmother trophy in the left wall mount (though I'm sure I'll replace it with beta and someday alpha), the right is for the megapithicus when I kill that, and the center is for the dragon, again when I eventually kill it. 

Having a good weight megatheirium (one of the boss crew actually, even when not levled at all it's really good) made the process fairly easy. I also tried to tame a megalainia (I need to fight the broodmother at least twice more, and the Lava Cave is terrifying to do by normal means), but I couldn't find any.

My daeodon handled well in the nearby easy cave while we searched for megalainia (he's done it before and has been leveled up a lot), and he has a sixty-something armor saddle.

I'm wondering, with his saddle, good food stat, and good health, could he be the extra something I need to do the boss on alpha? If I loaded him with meat and basic kibble, the healing might be enough to keep my army alive. But for that I'd also want a yuty, and I can only ride one, so the other would have to be ignoring group whistles and tanking occasional hits. I haven't thought out the plan to much though, and a better saddle blueprint for the megatheirium would still probably be needed.

When I didn't find megalainia, I attempted to do the Lava Cave with my dire wolf. I chickened out after not long, I also couldn't remember which way to go. So then it was just more construction work. I really like the direction my base is going, and I have a plan for a huge extended area. The best way to describe it would be a balcony, but it's not really that either. Whatever it is, I think I'll put the tek replicator there when I make it. 

I'm also adding separate rooms, rather than just one big enclosed area. While I don't use mods (I want to share the pain of console players/official players), at times like this, I wish I did. Not just because S+ is¬†great in general, but¬†because inner and outer walls match in S+.¬†Without it, my inner walls¬†that are also¬†outer ones don't match the other inner ones. Did that make any sense? ūüėÖ

Anyway, I'll mark this off as a good, productive day.

Megalania spawn in the cave on carno island, there's always at least one in there.  Take a good terror bird as your mount, and a LOT of narcotics, they lose torpor like gigas.  Extraordinary kibble.

 

The lava cave is cake if you bring in some stone foundations and ceilings to bridge the lava and standing torches to make the way.

I started a new server on rag with a buddy.  We played a bunch on official valg yesterday and it was generally awful (I'm spoiled by boosted rates) so I ponied up the 14 bucks.

We got some horses, and bred some horses, and now have a ton of horses.

I'm pretty sure there's something to the unicorn passive ability, got twins the first time we tried with the unicorn next to the breeders, and then got two mutations in the first three tries after that.

Crystal Isles, private server, four of us

We now have enough imprinted Crystal Wyverns to do the Wyvern Queen boss.  We raised several of each type (Tropical, Ember, and Blood) just to make sure that all of the bases are covered.  We are aiming for 20K health and 400 melee for each, but we will probably settle for less on some of them if we get too impatient.

I spent yesterday tracking down the rest of the artifacts required for the Gamma Queen.  I got all of them except for one that seems to be in the Wyvern Trench.  There were four Wyvern Hiers flying above the area when I looked, so I will probably wait until a time when I can get some backup from the rest of the gang.

Hopefully, we will be able to coordinate all four of us either this weekend or next to do the Gamma Queen and then we will decide if we want to stay and do the Beta Queen or move on to a new world.

Since our two newest members have only been on Crystal Isles, we might go to The Island next so that they can get lots of achievements and explorer notes.  In addition, Flont and I moved from The Island (actually restarting from scratch) without successfully beating the Gamma Overseer.  We must go back and redeem our past failure.

(Official, Valguero) Leveled Sapphire more, raised Deimos more and imprinted him again, he's over 50% grown at this point. Didn't do much else. Oh, and got a mastercraft tropeo BP from a red drop. Not exactly useful, since I'm not planning on ever getting a tropeo, but I'll keep it anyway.

I didn't do much, but I added some paintings (just stuck my RL initials on them, didn't make them into anything much) and an alpha rex trophy to my base. Still working on the upgrades. Tommorrow I might take a break from them and do the Swamp Cave or something.

Today I went to the Swamp Cave with a megatheirium. Now for once, it wasn't to level it up, but to just look for loot. Two red drops and a blue drop yielded some not great stuff. I had time to play a bit more, but didn't feel like more of The Island. Instead, I went to play more with my other character. For anyone who doesn't know, that character lost everything in a transfer (I should have made a backup first) and I was really annoyed and stopped playing with it for a while. I use him to play on the non-story ARKs, since I don't want to mix story and non-story.

I made some new armor (just plain hide), a new pick, a hatchet, a spyglass, and crossbow. This all happened on The Center. It's pretty dangerous there, and I have to be careful. The challenge of having to rebuild from such a rough patch is fun though, I'll admit. I think I might go to Ragnarok tomorrow, and I'll be sure to make a backup of the map first. 

Edit: Do I want to backup the map I'm leaving or going to?

Today: Boss Fights Consummately on My Terms.

So, today, after long hiatuses on Genesis and midway a proper establishment on Crystal Isles, I found myself called back home on Extinction to continue my ongoing quest to finally tame my desert titan.

I have most everything in place, but I found that before I go ahead with 50,000 assault rifle bullets, a selection of decent ascendant assault rifles from my pre-nerf gachas and a loose notion of the strategy, I wanted to actually defeat the titans and unlock the Tek suit as the last piece of what I felt I’d need. And in my mind there was really just one approach I could realistically hope to succeed with.

 I don’t keep rexes or gigas in large enough numbers to constitute a proper boss hoard, and I only keep fire wyverns in regard to tackling desert. But there was one thing that I do keep in huge numbers, and have sunk a huge amount of time into breeding, and, as it happens, has always played to my approach to Ark’s challenges: If you throw enough birds at it, the problem tends to go away.

And so I packed up my a-team of thirty monster dimorphodons, and my mounts of choice - my basilisk for ice and forest, and my eagle for desert, and set about my first ever Ark boss fights.

In the interests of full disclosure I should mention these were birds bred from my allotment of creatures I spawn on every map as my favorites, in this case a pair of level 750 dimorphodons, whose lineage was originally meant to be my answer to OSDs.

And I am so pleased to report than the OP dimorphodon flock I’d spent months breeding was more than sufficient to deal with the titans, with them facing the biggest challenge - or at least longest TTK - on desert because they kept getting pulled off by the flocks. The ice Titan’s frost aura also generated a technical challenge, but he was happy to focus me down while I pelted him with my basilisk from range until the birds were unfrozen.

It was an elating, if not entirely fair victory, and now I’m ready to go ahead with my plan to at long last tame my titan.

750 ? u play private serv K

 

I play exclusively single player, actually, lol. And I tend to give myself a pair of my favorite pets for hobby breeding, dimorphodons, microraptors, wyverns and basilisks...the later two bred with the S+ mutator. I spawn them at 500 so they forcetame 750.

Since I‚Äôm just single player and I play Ark explicitly for the good of my mental health, I take a very ‚Äúchoose your challenges‚ÄĚ approach. As legit as possible, but I like my little luxuries. ūüėÖ

(Official, Scorched Earth) Built the base a bit more. Tamed a low-level argent solely for the purpose of carrying the doed around because doing that with a crystal wyvern is kinda awkward due to the speed. Looked for a phoenix during the heat wave, didn't find it, built the base a bit more, another heatwave hit, looked for a phoenix again, the game lagged in the "you can move fine, can't attack, stam and everything else stay the same, by the end you'll be about where you were when the lag started" way, so when it ended I had all the damage accumulated from the heat hit me at once, killing me instantly, and then spent a while searching for my wyvern (found her hovering about half-way to the location that I was-but-actually-wasn't-because-of-lag at the moment of death). Built base a bit more. Logged off.

(Official, Valguero) Today I took Sapphire for another meatrun. It was successful, and I filled both carnivore-only troughs. Then I decided to take her on another meatrun so that I could fill the troughs in the raising corner and unpod Deimos. The game froze. I died. I took one of the wyverns and went to retrieve Sapphire and my death inventory. After that I put the wyvern back in the base, took Sapphire again and went to continue the meatrun. After some successful kills the game froze. I didn't die. Upon logging back on I remounted Sapphire and decided to go back to the base since clearly I can't continue like that and it's safer to stay home if the game is going to behave like that. The game froze. I died. I took the same wyvern and went again to retrieve Sapphire. The game froze.

Certainly an eventful day, but in an entirely wrong way.

Okay. So now I have my best argent hopefully hovering and not sitting in the area where rock elementals spawn, one of my favorite wyverns above the lake (definitely hovering -  I was flying too high for him to start seeking ground for landing), and now my favorite lymantria is in the same situation (unless I survived). The gear I was wearing while riding Sapphire is definitely lost at this point. Of course, I will have to make attempt at retrieving all those flyers, but with the way things are going, I think it's better to unpack some less favorite ones for the task.

Flyer retrieval status: Sunset (lymantria) set to follow Rose. Rose: near Mojito (not close enough to set him to follow). Game: frozen again. Me: probably going to die. Again.

Flyer retrieval status 2: Sunset and Mojito on follow. Sapphire not found, but alive since the tribe log doesn't say she's dead. Game frozen yet again despite using the low memory setting this time.

Flyer retrieval status 3: Mojito almost at the base, Sunset on follow but due to difference in speed I don't know WHERE he is - only that he's alive and following Rose. Game frozen again. Sapphire's location unknown.

Flyer retrieval status 4: Mojito safely within the base's borders. Sunset located. Sapphire still not found. Game frozen.

Flyer retrieval status 5 and final: Sapphire, Sunset and Rose returned to the base, Rose podded again, the game seems to be behaving nicely now, but after such an experience I feel like that's more than enough ARK for today. If it wanted me to play, it should have behaved nicely BEFORE I got tired.

Hey, gang. Wow, many of you have been busy since I last checked in.  I have mostly been building and grinding out materials the last week or two... I lose track of time.  Anyway I am building a large warehouse type structure that will hold and hopefully protect many of our dinos as we seem to get many spawns for raptor and rex in the area.  

I logged in once earlier this week to two raptors having their way with our tames. Somehow they spawned inside our base.  One of them was an alpha.  I was able to jump on an argy and kill them but not before they killed 4 of our dinos.  One of the victims was our only anky and that put a halt on the building project. Silly us for having all tames on passive.  I should have known better. I have since tamed another anky.

I found out the tribe leader really hasn't spent much time on the island and has never done any of the caves.  So, last weekend we took a break from grinding and had fun.  I took him to the lower south cave, the central chitin cave, and the cave on carno island.  We both died a few times along the way from rabies but had fun nonetheless.  He wants to do more but I asked him to pump the brakes because they only get harder from there.  We need better gear before attempting the others. 

I hope to have the warehouse finished either tonight or tomorrow (at least to the point where we can move the dinos inside).  It is roughly 25 floors long by 12 wide and 12 high.  It does however have some dimension as one end is 16 wide and has an upper floor with roof top access for the flyers.  I hate the basic box look so I tried to add windows and angles where I could to break up the otherwise boring structure. I will probably try to add texture and general improvements for some time yet, but the thing should be conceptually done soon. Thank god!

The tribe leader in his adventures on Rag was able to acquire a couple Rexes and Wyverns among other things, so we are starting to put together a nice team.  I had previously tamed a 145 male direwolf before I joined the tribe and the other day I found a 145 female.  I couldn't pass that up.  She ended up with the superior health, weight, and damage. He has better stamina.  I might try to breed them this weekend if I get a chance.  

Anyway, happy adventures to you all. I will try to check in a little more often again.

Well yesterday I tamed my first Archaeopteryx, on the anniversary of the day the species was discovered in 1861.

In the desert/ mountain cliffs of southern Rag, it's kinda cool to just ride the allo off the cliff and dismount and float down to him.

 

Before that I tamed a nasty allo pack, 135/145/150 (!!!!), and bred up a tamed 150/224 I already had to a 37 so I could figure out his stats, tribemate had started leveling him.

 

Got the best stats from all four good allos bred into a nearly solid black 253, and started collecting eggs, these are going to be boss fighters when I get some more health and damage on them.

 

Went to the desert (base in in the big cave in the highlands) and caught a doed and anky.

 

It was a good day.

Oh well... my last session was a catastrophe. Though only a minor catastrophe... this game can be very unforgiving and when you get tired and keep playing it only gets worse.
So here's an abstract.

I was playing the chaos server/valguero again. When I logged on I noticed that most of my reserves had spoiled. The preservation-chambers had run out of powder. Bad planning. I'm not used to playing on a permanent server. Need to adjust the amount of powder. Set out to look for a Doedi Level 140 or 145 (max Level on this server is 150), that I had seen the other day and failed to tame. Actually I found it ... or very similar one at almost the same location. It's not the easiest location, though. Some corners and some dangerous animals around. I had 4 Pteras with me, all tamed around 140 and leveled a little, but not good. Had good results with the team so far, though. Took down a 140 Carno with little effort when in a pitch recently. So I had some trust in the team.

Noticed a Dire-Bear around the Doedi, that would probably interfere with my taming. It was level 50, so I could dispatch it. No problem. Started taming. Crossbow broke. Went back to repair the crossbow. Came back, started taming again. The Doedi had moved into a small room between a massive tree and some rocks that actually trapped several of the animals of the surrounding. Several female Megaloceros and a Paraceratherium among them. I decided to tame the Para to get it out of the way. Easy. When I got back to the Doedi, the Crossbow broke again. So another trip to my smithy. Came back, the Para was tamed up and unharmed. Only low level though. Nothing important. I started working on the Doedi again. Another bear interfered. This time I attacked immediately. Bad idea. I quickly noticed this one hit hard. Not too hard, though... every one of my guys would be able to tank around 8 or 9 hits from it and all would hit simultaneously. I thought we'd make it. Well... we did. But badly - very badly. From my team of 4 hand-picked Ptera 2 died. The Para died, too. And eventually the bear died, too. Phuh. That was a win I should have done without. Could have left the bear and come back at a better time. Screw the Para. Well... a lesson learned. Set out working on the Doedi again. This time I was attacked by a swarm of Titanomyrma. Not too bad normally, but I had the other Ptera (only one) left somewhere else on passive and was alone and seriously outnumbered and these Titanos were max level. Then I disconnected. poop! When I got back to the place I had died and the Ptera with me. So that's 3 Pteras down and they were all hand-picked over several hours. The level 140ish Pteras are quite rare on this server. Picked up a new Ptera, but only had meat with me, no prime. So this one would be worse. And unleveled. But hey... at least I had some support. I decided that I wouldn't be successful with the Doedi today. It had evaded my attempts so many times - I should do something else.

I decided to go for loot-boxes and tried placing my oil-pump I had found the other day. Well, that would be exciting. Never had an oil-pump - never even knew these existed until recently. Well, it wasn't a smooth ride, either. Several loot-boxes disappeared right before my eyes. Got some trash out of some (e.g. wooden structures). Not worth mentioning. So I looked after an oil-vene. Hard to find, those buggers. When I found one, there was a Megalosaur roaming the small plateau of the vein. No chance to evade it. I was in no mood to give up, either. Unfortunately. And I was too tired to think about digging up information about the Megalo first, too. Could have been so easy - wait for daybreak and I could have done everything I wanted. But no...  I decided to lure it down the hill. Set the new Ptera aside on passive and moved towards the Megalo when it was close to the edge. It didn't notice me. One bite and the show was on. Quickly turned around trying to fly off. Didn't work. Was demounted immediately and went down the edge. The fall didn't kill me, but I was injured. And pursued. I couldn't even start moving before I was killed. So now I was alone... my only Flyers and most of my equipment far away at an oil-vene and my playing time far far overstretched. And I was dead-tired. However I had to get my stuff back I wouldn't want to start this all over again. Things would disappear on the server if I just stopped now. No way. So I just crafted a few bolas, took an old bow from the storage and made some tranq-arrows. Luckily found a Bronto that sacrificed itself on my spikes, so there would be some prime-meat for taming. Then I started looking. First I only saw level 20ish Pteras around. They probably wouldn't even be able to carry me naked. So no way. After some searching I found a 135 Ptera over the islands. Well... it wouldn't get any better, so I swam over to the island, arrived safely and sorted through the local Pteras. Found the one I had been looking for. It was actually on it's way to the coast. So I swam back. Searched again. Didn't find it. But then I spotted a 150 Ptera. Yay! Wouldn't get any better than this. Bola'd it, Tranq'd it. Easy. Ran back to my base, collected prime and crafted a saddle, back to the Ptera. It worked. A bit rough, but flawless taming. So I set out for my equipment. Finally arrived at the spot. The Megalo had curled up next to my equipment. Collected the stuff, found the other two Ptera of mine, placed the oil-pump and went home. I was so exhausted. Incredible, what this game can do...

So... bottom line... I lost a lot. Most of my air-force came down this episode. Got some reinfocements, though, too. Hopefully they'll be as useful once they're leveled some. Set up an oil-pump. But it's too far away for easy access. Wonder if it's worth the effort. Didn't manage to tame the Doedi. Wonder if I'm ready for this. Felt exhausted. Learned some things... hope it was worth it.

Have fun everyone.

Eleusius.

(Official, Valguero) Logged on, took Sapphire on a meatrun (near base, in case game starts acting up again), gathered some meat without any accidents, the notification of update in 15 minutes appeared, I gathered more meat, put it into one of the troughs in the raising corner, unpodded Deimos, at 5 minutes notification went for a bit more meat and returned just in time to put it into the trough and go to the greenhouse for a log-off.

Same server, after the update: took Sapphire for her first ever metal run, got a lot. A. Lot. She can carry 3000 weight now, so I got a bit over 2000 anky-reduced metal before deciding that it's enough for today. Very pleased with how things went. No freezing, by the way. Not even lags!

Unpodded the breeder deinons, set them between the rexes on the breeding stand for easier egg gathering. Took a few attempts to get them into a position where male can get to all the females. Bred the tek rexes too. And the featherlights. Waiting for the eggs to hatch. Made some shotgun ammo, too, since can't do breeding without having to shoot a few babies. I mean, I could chainsaw them, I guess, but that'd be too expensive when time comes to repair that chainsaw.

Also, today I traded! Got awesome baby owls (not for serious breeding, since full mutation counters, but two owls better than no owls, plus I can still get a baby from them that I'll be able to imprint) for a tuso BP (the actual trade), and a great sword for one of my tek rex females (spontaneous, the player who bought the tuso BP liked the color on her). Raising one of the owls now, the other one is for later. Got no saddle, but that's a problem to solve later - maybe I'll level my ext character, make primitive saddles and transfer them, or I might buy a decent BP, since I have some stuff I could exchange for one, whatever it'll be, it'll be later - gotta raise the birds first!

Owl's growing fine. Haven't named him yet.

Since I have plenty of metal after today's run, I made some vaults and replaced my old storage boxes with them. Not all - polymer (due to me never accumulating too much of it) and dyes remain in old 45 slot boxes, and miscellaneous got upgraded from small box to 45 box instead. But oil, dust, electronics, crystals, pearls and gasoline all have been moved to big new vaults, and metal has a box (well, vault) now too. No more running out of space in the electronics and oil boxes despite only getting them from tek dinos, no more limiting myself when gathering pearls which are actually fun to gather - I can harvest however much I want now! And the dust... Well, I don't get all that much of it, but better have a bigger box anyway, since judging by the prices I see in the chat, 45 stacks is kind of a meaningless amount.

Oh, also, I missed the featherlight egg hatching. It's dead. But judging by the level in notification, it too after its father anyway, so I probably would have killed it.

Decided to try and see if I could make a better giga saddle. And succeeded! The new one is 85, colored it and put it into a box, Deimos will wear it later. The one I had stored for him before went to Elisabeth, and her old saddle is now in the grinder. Also, eggs are less than half an hour away from hatching - can't wait to see if I'll get anything good! And the next tek rex breeding will be with Jotunn (wild-tame male), to get a replacement for the female I exchanged for a sword.

...

Eggs all hatched with no mutations. Bred dodos - maybe those would pleasantly surprise me.

Today and yesterday I played on Ragnarok. I want to go back to The Island soon, but my current plans for over there involve a lot of grinding that I wasn't ready for yet. Yesterday, I farmed up some metal and polymer, not a ton of either, and got some incredibly easy loot from the iceworm cave. There's so much easy loot you can get without actually fighting iceworms! The only real work is luring away bears, which is still nothing.

Today, I tamed a level 150 sabertooth that had event colors (all the way from the birthday event, since back in my heyday of Ragnarok that event was going on). Sabers aren't the best (though as a strong sabertooth loyalist, I'll always say they're every bit as good as direwolves), but this one is an awesome red and green one. I also had a ramshackle saddle on a lower level one, so my new one will have to get that soon. Then towards the end, I got more cave loot, including a journeyman longneck blueprint. Not bad!

(Official, Extinction) Built a small base surrounded by metal spikes. Tamed a low-level stego. Lost stego to a level 90 enforcer. Got the enforcer aggroed on the spikes so that it basically killed itself. Got the BP. Pretty okay day so far, I guess. The ext character still not high enough level to become my source of owl saddles, but that's only a matter of time.

Now I'm gonna log on to Valguero, feed the owl, unpod Deimos, log off, check on the bases on Scorched Earth and Crystal Isles, and then back to Valguero.

(Official, Crystal Isles) Logged on, saw that everything's fine and wyverns have plenty of food, logged off.

(Official, Scorched Earth) Logged on, saw that Topaz isn't on the roof where  Ieft her, took Screech and went looking. She wasn't too far, I got her back, used her to get some meat for her and Screech, gathered some berries for Stonebreaker, logged off.

(Official, Valguero) Checked on the giga egg, went into the Abyss, only found 3 crates (one with 90-something araneo BP. Kinda pointless, but keeping it anyway). The Abyss was exceptionally plesiosar-y today which was rather inconvenient as Toriel had already been at only 21000 health from an encounter with an alpha megalodon, but nothing too bad happened, even though most of the two hour wander through the Abyss was spent with her only having about 19000 health due to everything trying to kill us and taking away anything she managed to regenerate above that. Got some pearls (regular and black), some oil, a few stacks of angler gel - don't really need it, but I like it so I always keep it. Maybe I'll put angler gel torches on the balcony I recently added to the house. Podded Toriel, returned to the base, podded Deimos, and logged off.

(Official, Valguero) Grabbed the approximate (didn't remember exact one) amount of mats for that level 90 enforcer, uploaded it together with Horus (old argent I'm not using anymore), Pomegranate (high-level parasaur. Never used. Made a saddle for him specifically for this occasion, around 70 armor), a metal pick (130 or something % damage), and a full canteen.

(Official, Extinction) Retrieved the dinos, canteen, and pick, Went back to the base to check if the amount of mats right. Transferred some more from Valguero because it was wrong. Went to make the Enforcer. Turned out the amount still was wrong - I was whole 3000 dust short! didn't feel like getting the extra dust. Made 3 basic ones instead, and a primitive level 7 one from a BP I got from another enforcer that happened nearby. Uploaded two of the basic ones and the one from BP, kept the third basic one to use on Extinction, got two more BPs (levels 52 and 50) from enforcers killed by wild dinos. 52 somehow requires a bit less mats, so I'll keep it to maybe make later. 50 and 90 went into the unlocked vault one tribe is keeping, where everyone can put things they don't need or take things the DO need (a pretty awesome thing! They also have unlocked crafting stations and an incubator for everyone to use. And a gacha in an unlocked pen for anyone to approach, feed, and get crystals from!).

As for the excess resources - all of the poly, oil and dust was uploaded back for me to retrieve on Valguero, about half metal too, 2 stacks I kept to use on Extinction, and the rest  Ieft in the terminal because I got tired of grabbing some, waiting until it's uploadable, uploading, grabbing, waiting... Plus there were two defense units and they didn't like me. At all. As in, they tried to kill me.
