  1. I had a similar problem, but instead of me being removed from tribe, all my buildings in my snow base left my tribe somehow, while my other base is still in my tribe, excluding my behe gates( which all left the tribe also).

  2. I did it regularly in the past with a average bred basilo with average hp, stam and melee, with apprentice saddle and most points into speed, few into stam. Then i just sprint pass the creatures there all the way to the artifact, kill any that managed to enter the artifact chamber with me, and sprint out after taking it.

  3. What is this "ab" you speak of? I'm still trying to beat The Island. Doesn't help that I regularly reset my data for some reason.
    I just can't wait to have all of the DLCs beaten.

    Just know that it hasnt been the same ever since the date when the second paid dlc for ark been released.

    QUESTION. Let's say I transfer from scorched with the chainsaw engram learned, to Extinction. Will I still own the LEARNED chainsaw engram along with any unlearned scorched engrams ON Extinction? Then will I get the Extinction engrams along with that? (Not immediately of course, I still have to unlock them) Then what if I MINDWIPE, will I still be able to unlock the Scorched engrams, even if I'm on another map, or do I need BPs?

    Any engrams u learnt will stay, only disappears when u mindwipe.
    Once u are on ext u can learn the engrams exclusive to that map.
    If u mindwipe u need to go to the specific map to learn their exclusive engrams again.

  4. I swear at one point in time it was a guaranteed drop to get 2 per kill, and I'd have oodles of em.
    Eh, I restarted my data again and I'd have no use for them anyways. Very discouraged with my progression in all of my playthroughs. Can't even beat the first boss- The caves intimidate me and I never wan't to go for artifacts lmao
    I noticed that it was no longer guaranteed 2 per kill ever since aber was released. I used to farm them as part of my meat runs regularly before and after aber release. Before aber it was dropping 2 each regularly. My guess was it had something related to nameless venom which is not supposed to drop regularly.
  5. Here's it is [mention=1298574]Castlerock[/mention] and [mention=926688]TinyHippo[/mention]
    "I suspect Nerva knew that he would not fare well in battle. After taking a couple blows from my sword, he dashed off into the darkness. However, I know he was deeply wounded. His blood cannot lie. I suspect this command center was created by something with technology far beyond most normal comprehension.
    In the distance I can see several worlds, one that is clearly a place I've been. I am now sure that there are more of these worlds. That scoundrel Nerva must have escaped before he could meet his death. Little does he know, I won't give up that easily, I will find him in whatever realm he travels to.
    There is a terminal that sits upon a platform near the end of the command center. Surely, through some combination of codes, that must unlock travel to other worlds. But it does not. It only adds another foe to be slain by the Beast Queen."
    We also know that the survivors take on the Alpha variants of bosses, as Rockwell in Scorched Earth mentions back on The Island you needed 8 artifacts to summon a boss, but he only needed 3 for access to the manticore. (Definitely gamma manticore then.)
    I have all the notes on ARK except for the HLNA and mobile ones printed out in a gigantic sheet that I read ritually- I'd recommend you guys do the same, as that's how I get all of my little details for theorizing. There's some good stuffs in there!
    Yes i read have read that before. It clearly says it is after Nerva lost his men and beasts to kill the overseer before Mei Yin got to him, otherwise she would have to fight his army as well. Mei Yin only fought Nerva, not the overseer.
  6. Because it was times four for pc crystal isles console has times two. The summer Evo was times four. We now enjoy times two, 2 and 4 are very different in terms of rates
    Pc never had times 4. It was times 2 for a long time before the recent rate change, where current 1x is same as the previous 2x so pc and console had same rates for CI.

  7. Fun fact: Mei Yin defeated the Alpha Overseer solo with just a sword.

    Im more curious as to where u got this from. Based on the island explorer notes, it was Nerva who defeated the overseer but he lost his men and beasts to defeat it, then Mei Yin shows up for her revenge.

  8. Because we had 4x for weeks. Not everyone follows these forums and just know what they experienced in game... not necessarily caring much what the reason for the 4x was.
    EDIT: and yes I know the base rates have now increased and what we considered 4x for those weeks would now be called 2x. 2x what the rates are today.
    We never had 4x. The rates from the recent evo events were 2x of the old rates, which is 4x of the even older rates back in 2015. Now that the old 2x is the new permanent 1x, the rates are still the same like what@GP said.
  9. This would be a very handy feature. I have an index card system going.
    Of course, if you give it away to someone, or you're gifted a dino, then there is no way to know its base stats. Also, I believe that imprinting bonus does not form part of the base stat when it comes to breeding. So if you're looking to buy a dino, yet to be levelled, but 100% imprint, the stats you see before you buy will not be what you will breed with.
    Just use ark smart breeding.
  10. I didn't read the whole thread, so i dunno if its been suggested, but for us who play SP, why not give us an option to turn off nerfs for EVERYTHING? I mean, if i wanna go around one shotting everything with a Giga, or traveling the across the map in 30 seconds with a Wyvern or Mana, that should be for me to decide, since im only playing by myself. 
    Then why not u just spawn a very high lvl tame like lvl 10000 and do what u want in sp?
  11. So.... It's too confusing... Now Rates are x2 because of Evo event... They will become permanent.... Then where did x4 come from? x1 will be equal x2 now Isn't it? Why is it stated that 1x will be equal x4? Even if you check rates on wiki, niw is x2. I don't know what rates you compare. Write it so that everyone could understand... Not only you with some rates in some developer's folder no one knows...
    So. Can someone tell me... Will the rates be as they R now or will be doubled? Because what I see in this article - they will be x4 - doubled. 
    The x4 is with comparison to ark rates when it was released in 2015. At that time x1 rates are half of our current x1 rates, so when current x2 becomes default x1, it will be x4 of the original in 2015.
  12. BTW [mention=180634]StudioWildcard[/mention]
    I got a quick maths lesson it appears someone on the team cant add up.
    - Boss Fight timer on Valguero has increased from 20 minutes to 30 minutes.

    When u increase the timer from 20min to 30min its 20+10=30 you know not 20+2 at the moment its 22min and not 30min how is it even possible to get a simple maths wrong?

    22min is the old timer, it just means they havent increased it yet.
  13. Sounds like I should just work on leveling then, shame. I was hoping this was a good method. The electronic I get from it is nice though so I guess I won't abandon this method completely. Farming silica pearls is worse.
    Since u are on the island, farming silica pearls is easy. All u need is to tame a dolphin and have a scuba tank then just swim to the underwater resources caves, they have plenty of pearls, some even have oil rocks and crystal too.

  14. I can't see anything good for PVP player...i can undesrtand that the develop team need to implement also for PVE players, but in PVP we lost tons of dinos in fight...and you will increase RHINOS maturation...Giga need 7 days to growth...so for 7 days i have to put clock alarm every 8h...

    Make this game...like a game, not a work. 

    Gigas still takes 14 days to raise not 7.
  15. more like "debuff". lio magic has never worked. it actually nerfs the loot. 30min timer wasn't the only quirk why noone got/used them. 
    It has for me during the winter wonderland 2 where all players got the lio buff after midnight. Just lucky i guess, but first loot crate in caverns of lost faith before encountering any cave creatures gave me asc rex saddle bp with about 110 armor.

  16. Mantis needs a Update on Taming as well because taming high level ones are bugged

    What's the issue? I tamed a 150 on rag desert with no issue on current 2x.

    I love all of this news, but there is one issue I wanted to ask about that I don’t see anyone else asking. Is there a way to make the underwater goggle effect work on every map and not just on the island? I keep missing out on underwater event coloring because I can’t see any of the creatures clearly and the effect doesn’t work on either the goggles or the tek helmet outside of the island map.

    Use a gas mask in fpv, can see very clearly.

    When i use 19 carnos will they give 95% dmg now? Or can only the first carno make 5%dmg and after 10 sec the next. Work this whitout rider?

    It doesnt stack, just refreshes the timer on the bleed with each secondary attack.
