Community Crunch 316: Fjordhawk Creature Spotlight, EVO Event, and More!


Recommended Posts

Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

Fjordhawk makes its Creature Spotlight debut in the Community Crunch this week!



Fjordhawk can be a useful companion if you're able to forge a bond with one by taming it.  This playful species has made a game of tasks you might find daunting.  If you need to fetch something, Fjordhawk can fly to nearby targets and retrieve them for you!

Fjordhawk makes its appearance when Fjordur releases in June 2022!





The free DLC map, Fjordur, is right around the corner!  Here's a quick summary if you're looking for the dossiers of the new creatures.  Will Andrewsarchus, Desmodus, or Fjordhawk be your first tame on Fjordur?



Serving as the first winner of the Community Creature Vote, Andrewsarchus makes its way to Fjordur packing an arsenal of utility!  Andrewsarchus may seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Once tamed, its saddle will allow you to mount a minigun to the back of it!




Announced as the third creature to land on Fjordur, Desmodus was the second winner of the Community Creature Vote!  The original creature submission garnered a lot of attention and the rest is ARK community history! Desmodus won (39,781 votes) vs. Carcharodontosaurus (24,419 votes) in the 9th and final round!

As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey!  If you're lucky enough to tame one,  you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness.




Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate.  A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you.





There will be an ongoing EVO Event from Friday, May 20th until Monday, May 23rd.  You can find the rates below:

"Happened a couple hours ago, was taming forest titan. 

I begin putting all the tributes into the terminal, throwing out my mek, and activating the teleporter. Fast forwards 5 minutes, all is going well, minimal damage taken from both him to me and me to him. i take the final shot i had left in my cannon module.. direct hit! his arm falls down to the poisonous ground below. He looks at the damage i've caused, and roars. Swinging and swatting left to right at the forest wyverns like mosquitoes on a hot summers night. He takes a swing at me, shooting a large vine of roots and leaves.. my game freezes. I sit there praying i haven't crashed, fast forwards 30 seconds, all is good. I begin the shooting process until his 2nd arm snaps and falls. All that is left is one target. I begin shooting once again and he stops in his tracks, and raises his two hands, (as though he was surrendering) and stands their, allowing me to take down that final node, freezing him from the prison that was forcing him to do cruel and unspeakable things to others. He cried out in pain and freedom as he falls to the ground, unconscious. I look at my own two hands realising that i have finally taken down the forest titan. Solo. I give him a tap on the head, and he awakens, THE FOREST TITAN HAS BEEN TAMED beams onto my screen. Victory. I look at the forest titan, realising it was an alpha tame! 

Next time:

The icy king yeti thingmebobwhateveridkwhattocallit becomes my personal stead into battle against the king of shadows. But will i succeed?"

I bet you were wondering if it's possible to solo tame the Extinction Titans weren't you.  Syntac did our homework for us in his latest video!

An evo weekend with no breeding = a weekend to sleep through. It's so easy to harvest stuff now, especially with a stryder, that evo weekends without breeding events are basically worthless. It's our breeding projects we want to get done and for that we'd like to get the boosted rates for at least the weekend so we can make progress.

I been playing Ark on Nintendo Switch since it launched on it, over 5k hours logged, in all these years these last two evo events are the first we have ever been included in. We have been left out of everything practically and the absolute worse Ark experience to be had on any platform. Lets hope your promises aren't just more lies we were fed when we bought this unsupported version. Keep up the good work.

The Fjordhawk will definitely solve all of my problems xD

I may be an expert on Ark...but I still die...some times a lot and it gets annoying trying to retrieve your stuff, especially when you have good gear and you don't want to lose it...even more so when it has a short time limit like on some servers. This boi will solve all of my problems!!! And I'm sure lots of people feel the same way as I do. Can't wait!!!

Oh! And btw...I can't wait for Carcharodontosaurus to be revealed. All of these guys are awesome, don't get me wrong, but he's the big and final boi I'm waiting for, and is basically going to be one step up from a Rex and one step lower than a Giga...well, maybe one step lower than a Reaper King, but still. I'm excited for Carcharo to be added. One final big carnivore for the win~! ^^

My prediction for how to tame a Fjordhawk based on the difficulty and process of every tame released since Gen 1.

1. You must be wearing a full bunny cost placed over primitive cloth armor, no worries if you didn't get it during Eggcellent Extravaganze, they are for sale in the hexagon store after each event ends (lol).

2. Insert Rockarrot into rectum. Must be placed single and no stacking cause that would be weird.

3. Jump off cliff that Fjordhawk nest is and do bunnyhop emote as you soar past them on the way down. See #1 for how to get bunnyhop emote (lol). You must be within .3 meters of the Fjordhawk for the taming process to take effect.

4. Server save you did it at the wrong time.

5. Must not have any tames uncryo'd within 800^2 meters or otherwise their excellent eyesight will cause them to be on the defensive.

6. Repeat Step #3

7. Gain 0.7% taming effectiveness on a level 10 Fjordhawk.

8. Rockarrot decay timer fades go to step #2 you have lost all taming effectiveness.

my question is why don't you just play the game constantly and get all the updates

Our base is still standing on current season, but there is no one left to fight. Many People enjoy starting fresh every now and then and the boosted rates are better for players that have serious School/work :)
