  1. After almost 2 years of constant breeding, every larger group now has incredibly mutated dinos that are nowhere close to what the game was originally balanced around. This means that dinos like Rhinos or Therizinosaurs deal much more damage and are much harder to kill than they were 1.5 years ago when the game released. Politically, the game is currently very stale, with alliances constant, no big conflicts and many people leaving the main cluster for others clusters or other games for a fresher and more exciting experience. A wipe would easily reset breeding back to its original state and bring these dinos back down to what they were originally, and bring back many players that have left over the last year. edit: im talking (mostly) about the Official PvP network, non-legacy, main cluster)

  2. Well, eventually they would run into the 254 level limit per stat (well technically 255, but then you can't do XP upgrades). On official there are already creatures hitting that limit for one stat. Though I suppose eggs hatching at 1,779 with every stat maxed out would be monsters. That much melee, health and O2 would let you run Moedar with rexes, lol.

  3. I found a gold Rex saddle BP in a regular drop (purple I think?). I do find it ironic that the regular red drops, even with the gold ring, seem to have the worst loot in them (always some sort of metal sign BP or similar)

  4. Holy crap, I didn't even think of that.....Good lord, no wonder the dev's decided to put level caps in place. Could you imagine making super rex's then redoing them over and over again like this?......levels was limited only by time and if someone stuck it out for years, they would be unstoppable! X.X

  5. PVE official Island Finished building the base on the sandy beach just west of the Red Obelisk. Then made several trips back to Ragnarok to fetch key members of the breeding and boss teams. Also took over several useful tames for caves and all the appropriate gear. I have triplet baby rexes ( 1 M and 2 F) that I am raising to be the start of a fresh Rex boss team. I have also started a breeding program on some yuties and megatheriums. My therizino line is good but will probably raise up some more just to have back ups. The last few weeks feel like they have taken forever to get the Island base started with nothing but 1x rates since the holiday event ended, but it is what it is. (I won't complain if the Devs finally decide to toss us some 2x rates this weekend though ) I have beaten the Island before on single player but ran into a real toxic environment and a poor performing server when I first started on PVE. Unfortunately, I had to leave before I could tackle the bosses. After experiencing life on Ragnarok and Crystal Isles for awhile I am very happy to finally return and pick up where I left off... and take care of some unfinished business.

  6. (Official, Valguero) Fed dinos, unpodded wyverns for rising. Thought for a bit and decided to unpod the gigas, too - if I stick to just raising them on events, I might never finish them at all - so I filled a maewing with meat and put the two baby gigas near it. Bred my adult gigas, as well as mantises, sinos and dodos. Didn't keep any eggs - AB-SO-LU-TE-LY nothing good in them. No new mutations, and I already have plenty of female fail gigas in case something happens to the current two, so one of the eggs being female changed precisely nothing about its fate. Did a nice cement run, fed gachas a ton of arrows, cracked the resulting crystals for obsidian and made a lot of poly. Wyverns got hungry enough, so I went on a milk run. It was pretty uneventful, aside from me trapping whole six wyverns at the same time. Grabbed a 95 egg, too. Returned home, fed the wyverns, put the egg into the incubator - it's male, highest stat melee (26 points), colors seem to be okay. It stays. Decided to give the bees more flowers and that's where things went wrong: as usual, I took a repellant and two stacks of flowers out of the fridge, used the repellant, and opened the first of my two hives. It was full, so I took out one honey to fit the flowers. That was okay. Then I opened the second one, also full, took out one honey, put in the flowers, decided to eat the honey I took out and... The game froze so hard, that I couldn't even kill it in Task Manager. As if ARK decided that nope, today it says "No, thanks" to death. Had to reboot the computer. After that I started ARK up again and continued my day by wandering around randomly on my current favorite wyvern, Topaz Thorn. Ended up in the swamp, and saw a male sarco. I don't particularly care about sarcos, but that one looked nice (which basically means he looked black. Later it turned out he was actually black/gray/brown/green, but that's still pleasantly dark) and I had my rifle and some darts with me, so I tranqed him and went to grab some narcotics and kibble. Returned to the sarco, and decided to look around to see if there's maybe a high-level female for him, but no such luck. Tamed the sarco, named him Wiggles, brought him home and made him a saddle (I have a nice BP for that). Got a decent bonus on the saddle, too, it's a bit over 100 armor - BP's own is 85. Took Wiggles out to see how good he is... Well. Thanks to the saddle I didn't lose him then and there to some random raptor pair, but still he's not exactly usable by my standards. Low damage, slow on land, too fast in the water (hard to hit anything that doesn't just stay in front of his maw). He'll stay, but in a pod, not as something I'll actually use. Podded the babies (older giga almost 10%!), and that's all for today.

  7. Official pve I left the game for a while due to irl stuff however around christmas I restarted. I'd left my character on gen 2 and so he was there available to redownload. But otherwise everything I had decayed, so it was almost starting from scratch. I've made a smallish base on gen 2, tamed up a storm of things I wanted and traded a few more tricky tames (I enjoy taming) for good eggs etc. Whilst I've "beaten" the game in single player, I've never done the bosses on official. So the past 2 weeks I have been focussing on that. Made a small outpost on an island server and went through each boss, first gamma to refresh the memory and get an idea of how my tames perform then alpha for each. Shadowmanes and deino's for each one, except dragon where I used just a couple of deinos. I had to rerun alpha dragon as it glitched and credited me for the kill but no trophy. So today I did that first and then prepped for gamma tek cave. Two mate boosted rexs, (wild tames but levelled up well), a yuty, 12 shadows and a few deinos. Conga line organised, we got in the cave with 10 seconds to spare ( I hate having that lava outside the cave, wish that area was just a flat surface to prep on). I took the rexs forward to start clearing out and on the second group of cave dwellers it started to lag a bit, got control just in time to see myself being purlovia'd off my rex and into the lava, rip that run and all my stuff. Have I mentioned I hate lava in this game? Feeling abit bummed out I limped back to retrieve my wyvern with the stuff I hadn't taken in with me. Pretty much everything was replaceable except the deino saddles, I haven't found a bp yet, gotten some alright ones from drops etc though. I also have spare dinos back at base. I took my spares and did each of the gamma fights back to back just to get the trophies quickly. Then heading back to my outpost I noticed a shadowmane I thought had been ark'd. He'd just disappeared a couple of days ago and there he was on the beach near the red ob. He was my rider so that and getting the gamma fights done quick cheered me up. Busy day on the ark for me, I'm focussing on breeding and imprinting for the next couple days before another run at that awful tek cave.
