What creatures would you like to see on the ARK?

Recommended Posts

I want to see more creatures for night raids, in particular i'd like to see a huge bat much larger than an onyc. Maybe a little bigger than ptera, about the same as a tapajara. It will allow you to see at night using echolocation, it could pick up players with an attack similar to the tuso by draining blood to heal rapidly.

Not any new dinos specifically but I do think it would be interesting to have 'alternate' dinos which are essentially less known species that function identically to pre-existing species but sometimes replace all the spawns of a certain dino when the map is first launched (e.g. a different, less well known ceratops instead of trikes). There could be alternate ways of spawning the other variants at higher levels without overwriting the associated spawns, so players could have the dinos they preferred regardless of the initial spawn. This would allow more dinos to be added without overcrowding the map with too much variation.

Chimera, and Hydra should be two creatures that should be added as mythical creatures for sure. Npc humans on single, Octopuss, quicksand,torpor flyer, floods, and hurricanes that blow thatch away would be cool. Also fire should burn down thatch it just should. So many things that are left that could continue and I assume will make this game continue to grow and stay amazing.

fire doing fire things would be AWESOME! Being able to torch thatch / wooden things would be dope AF! :D

Drepanosaurus - Arboreal Tree Dwelling Lizard found in Coastal Forests. Could be used to gather Sap, Chitin, and possibly Honey/Queen Bees. Drepanosaurus would be a Shoulder Mounted Pet like a Monkey Chameleon that can assist you in collecting High Up Resources with a Chameleon/Rock Drake like Camouflage technique to keep them from being attacked by the Bees coming out of the Bee Hive, who would in fact not detect it. Just an Idea... but there are honestly a million ways you could go with this Dino... Probably a lot more useful ways to use it as well, pertaining to certain maps and how you traverse them. I would just love to see this thing in Ark... and as it's skull is yet to be discovered(o.O) you can get a little more artistic with the head and face. Making it look more like a chameleon in the face would be awesome.

Thought I'd have some fun and suggest some suitable cave dwellers in honor of Aberration.

 

Rattus caniniformus "Wolf Rats"

Wild: The ever adaptable common rat has always faired well in harsh environments, and this truly shines through in Aberration. Lacking larger competition, they evolved into cunning, ferocious, and alarmingly agile predators, utilizing their powerful jaws to swiftly bring down their prey. 

Tamed: When tamed, these slinking monsters are excellent companions. Their powerful incisors bypass most armors, and while it rapidly tires them to do so they are capable of climbing most walls. Agile, fast, and ferocious fighters, few animals to strike with the shocking swiftness of the wolf rats. However, their comparatively frail build leaves them considerably more delicate than their surface world analogues.

The wolf rats would be a new, small rideable predator in the caverns. They would be acquired at roughly the same point as a raptor, however their climbing ability allows them to prove somewhat more useful in the more vertically oriented world. However, unlike other climbers, it rapidly exhausts their stamina. Their bites ignore most armor, and their attack speed is extremely fast. They have poor carry weight, and fairly low health. They're fast, they're scrappy, and they can breed like, well, rats. 

------------------------------------------

Gigantophis garstini "Mega Pythons"

Wild: Far more conventional serpents than the unusual Titanoboa of other regions, Gigantophis is very similar to modern pythons albeit on a massive scale. Gigantophis is fairly slow, yet relentless and incredibly physically powerful, easily crushing most available prey.

Tamed: Lacking the poison immunity of Titanoboa, Gigantophis can be tamed more conventionally. When tamed, it can restrain many animals within it's incredibly powerful coils. While physically far stronger than it's cousin, it's sluggishness limits it's utility.

The Gigantophis can function as a sort of living chain bola on larger animals while functioning more similarly to the Tuso on smaller ones. It is immensely physically powerful, but is unrideable and extremely slow.

----------------------------------------

Inostrancevia alexandri "Gorgons"

Wild: One of the apex predators of the underground, their resiliency during the end of the Permian has well adapted them to this new hardship. Nearly identical to their fossil counterparts, Gorgons are short tempered, fast, and incredibly powerful. Solitary animals, they subdue their prey by brutally charging into them.

Tamed: Gorgons gain a buff when in solitude, unlike most other animals. While they are somewhat cumbersome animals, a lone gorgon in full charge is an extremely formidable animal.

As stated, Gorgons solitary nature gives them a buff only when alone (not counting their rider), and they are the only gendered animals to lack a mate boost. Instead, they get the "Loner" status when sufficiently seperated from other tames. "Loner" provides an incredible buff nearly entirely across the board at the expense of requiring you to go into combat without support. The Gorgon is capable of tackling into prey and pinning it once it has a full charge meter, similarly to the Thyla yet including larger animals like Stegos.

----------------------------------------------

Blattella gigax "Giant Roaches"

Wild: Cockroaches the size of a cow, these animals are actually remarkably docile and flee from predators when given the chance. Immune to radiation, poison, fire, electricity, etc, these insects are totally immune to any debilitating status effects and are capable of climbing most walls, eating anything remotely edible, and even flight. Extremely slow, poorly coordinated flight, but just enough for these giants to escape more earthbound dangers.

Tamed: Their resiliency, comparative agility, and respectable weight capacity makes them extremely useful in any early to mid game caravan or small exploration party. However, their incredibly weak attacks necessitates an escort to ensure truly safe passage.

The game definitely needs roaches in some capacity, and this map is perfect for such a notoriously radiation resistant animal. When I say that it is capable of flight, I do want to emphasize that compared to the roaches, the Lymantria is a fighter jet.

-----------------------------------

Chlamydosaurus velodromeus "Frillies"

Wild: These extremely skittish massive lizards are one of the fastest ways to travel through these regions. Swift, powerful runners and jumpers easily capable of carrying a rider and three passengers, they are physically resilient but combatively nearly useless. However, utilizing their frill in combination with an ear splitting shriek, they can frighten off most threats.

Tamed: An excellent means for a crew of people to traverse this environment in relative safety and speed, or for a single rider to take advantage of it's respectable carrying capacity. It possesses the same intimidation ability as the Yuti, however it lacks the complimentary buff roar and is also drastically less capable in a physical conflict, relying far more on bark than bite.

I thought it would be really interesting to give another animal the intimidation ability, but to be far more reliant on it. Frillies can be used in PvP but in a far more support oriented role. Their multi person saddle with a well equipped crew can make them quite dangerous, but the animal itself has very low damage despite being roughly the size of a Carno.

 

----------------------------------

 

These are all just some quick ideas, but they seemed fun for the new map.

I would have said phoenix until recently.

As for what I want now? Since you've begun to add mythical creatures, the only thing that comes to mind is a Kelpie. A kelpie is a creature that disguises itself as a beautiful horse near bodies of water in order to lure humans to them, where it then tries to drown and/or devour them. This game has plenty of water and could use something scary (like horror scary, rather than "oh god I'm gonna get eaten" scary) especially now that you have horses which it could imitate. With aberration coming out, a little bit of horror seems like something that's possible where it wasn't before.

I don't see it being something that would be tameable since their purpose is to impersonate something you COULD ride and then drag you down to a watery grave; they'd basically be the mimics of this game. For those who don't know what a mimic is, it's a creature that disguises itself as a treasure chest and attacks unwary adventurers. They most famously have a presence in Dark Souls. Maybe make the Kelpie a unicorn instead of a regular horse so people are drawn to them even more.

As for how it would behave in game? There's many possibilities here. They could behave in a manner where they'd slowly approach you (like a horse that wants to be pet), but once you realize what it is and either run away or attack it, it'll become aggressive. Once it reaches you through either being aggressive or pretending to be a friendly horse, it'll begin attacking you. Its attacks will inflict torpor. If it succeeds in knocking you out, it'll slowly drag you into the water to drown you. If you have friends or friendly dinos nearby, they'll at least have a window to save you before you enter the water. I imagine they'd behave similarly to a spino where they'd lose interest if you ran far enough from the water. To really mess with people, you could give a few normal horses this "slow and friendly approach" behavior too.

Since it can't be tamed, it of course has to have its uses elsewhere. Mythology says that when a horse breeds with a kelpie, the offspring can't drown or has other abilities in water. Maybe if you manage to trap your horse with a kelpie and lose aggro of it, they can mate and create offspring, a special sort of horse that you CAN ride. Maybe let it walk/run on water or something. Maybe a dead kelpie can be another source of black pearls, since I imagine kelpies would be rare, especially if they're imitating a unicorn.

They should fix the game to where flyer can go into water but are extremely sluggish, a birds eat fish so how do they get fish? Water. I try to escape someone or thing hit the water and it throws me off, it should have water slow flyer like a stamina drain, but still allow them to manage to get up and fly out while I'm on its back. Also having more natural disasters would be cool, hurricanes , quicksand and such. The squid is cool but giant Octopuss would be amazing. I am loving the new mythical creatures coming out. I cannot wait for Aberration. How about adding Pegasus, or the seahorse.

Pelagiarctos thomasi a species of extinct walrus. This would be a cool creature to see on the coastal shores of the snow biomes.

With the recent introduction of many mythical creatures, to that I would love to see would be the Hydra and Chimera. The hydra could be an awesome Giga status creature, and the chimera could a creature with versatile abilities, such as a torpor attack, and fire breathing.

Smallest Raptor - Microraptor

microraptor
Microraptor (Emily Willoughby).

 

With its feathers and four, count 'em, four primitive wings (one pair each on its forearms and hind legs), the early Cretaceous Microraptor might easily have been mistaken for a bizarrely mutated pigeon. This was, however, a genuine raptor, in the same family as Velociraptor and Deinonychus, albeit one that only measured about two feet from head to tail and weighed a few pounds soaking wet. Befitting its tiny size, paleontologists believe that Microraptor subsisted on a diet of insects.

use: insects herder we cant tame insects but herding them for defends wood be cool

I hear what you're saying, the dragon is definitely not why I bought the game. I was just going off the Phoenix idea.  Some new Dino's would be great or even just an overhaul of the old ones to give them more life would be good

Not saying your idea was bad. I'm sure there are many others who would agree with your suggestions. After all, with the announcement of Aberration, it opens up new possibilities across the board. I'd like to see them add in prehistoric creatures that actually existed to Aberration, but maybe they are somehow specially adapted for the underground areas like many of the other fictional creatures already showcased are.

Microraptor is already in the game. It was added when the game was still in Early Access. You can find it on all current maps.
