  1. Xbox here, since the SE update that just downloaded I can't log on to my server or official. Getting an endless "Joining Session..." screen.
  2. Before the sino I was keen on a dimo project, they are beasts. I don't play pvp but if I did I'd have a few.
  3. We left a giga in the queen arena. You have to wait for it to calculate challengers and start coming towards you to unpod your helper, after that run she will spawn in like normal even if you have a tame already out on her floor area.
  4. Good way to farm prime I guess. I only played LI long enough to tame a couple of sino's but yeah, it should be called Stego Island. One thing I also noticed that I liked, there are also a LOT of rexes, considering how low they spawn on other maps, The Island especially.
  5. Can't wait to find out. Since Archeys and glide suits work I'd be shocked if they don't. Could change the meta for the cave significantly.
  6. When I did my rexes I did mass hatchings on a platform over a bunch of ACs. Same, crazy fast rates. Stacking 10m and 10h mutations took WEEKS. I'm loving the incubator. OP sounds like he has remarkably bad luck. Keep at it.
  7. And watching pro players who specialize in solo play is a great way to get those answers, unless you want to figure it all out thru trial and error. If one has a truly unlimited amount of time to play, sure, figure it out as you go. If one is a grown up with a job and some other time obligations, anything to shorten the grind would likely be appreciated.
  8. Watch Soloing the Ark by Phlinger Phoo or Ultimate Ark by Syntac. Or run up to a dino and punch it.
  9. Regarding the horse, depends on the map. You can get them as a first tame on rag easily, and an early tame on val also. Fairly easy to find on SE and Abberation. Its an absolutely phenomenal early mid game animal, especially if you breed for stats and imprint, and have a small herd of them saddled up in lieu of a chem bench.
  10. You can turn all that stuff up on single player on Xbox...
  11. I agree. For as OP as it is, it should be a pain to get one. Juice is worth the squeeze. I've had a couple that were absolutely nightmarish to tame (my 168, ugh) and got lucky with another one (a trash male so I could breed the PITA 168). If you can get one stuck against a cliff you are in luck. I can't wait to take one into the Tek cave.
  12. High stam lightning wyvern did pretty good too.
  13. Apparently it was a bug and they patched it. Levels aren't rag like, but I got lucky and got a 168 sino early. I play on difficulty 6 obvs.
  14. Yeah in between green ob and redwoods, saw one there I could have tamed on foot because of the elevation. A 'crops and net gun just made the quetz the easiest tame ever.
  15. Where did you spawn? Some of the easy spawns are pretty barren. Did you try a dino wipe admin command?
  16. Exactly what I was thinking. The incredible amount of damage they do is balanced by the fact that you don't get an extra 70 levels when taming.
  17. ...appear to be very similar to the canon maps. I've only looked at about a quarter of the map around blue ob and sucky levels everywhere. BUT, there's also rex's EVERYwhere, which is cool, even in bob spawns there are rexes. So happy to see extinction and genesis dlc engrams and creatures too. Looking forward to exploring legit with my server character and tribe, but we will still be going to Rag and Val for tames, lol.
  18. Hang it on the wall, and hang your guns on it. Pretty simple. They would show color changes and attachments. What do you think?
  19. Couldn't agree more. If dino levels were similar to Rag on the Island, I woulnd't play rag nearly as much. Although, to beat rag you do have to do the carnivorous cavern (big dark cave) which i always get lost in, the jungle dungeon (lots of prep needed for that, lots), the ice worm queen cave (see prior), and lifes labyrinth which is a massive pain in the butt. On the island, you get yourself a good bary and a good basi and you can smash thru all the caves. But the story flow on the Island is magnificent, I just despise the map itself.
  20. Even with crazy boosted mating settings, the rex army I built for my island playthru with 10 health and 10 melee mutations took weeks to get. I kick myself for letting the server subscription lapse, now its back to square one and I don't have the rex saddle bp I found on that playthru either. For fiddling around building stuff creative mode is fine, for playing the official bosses on official settings, build your army the way the game intended.
  21. Good rex, a really good allo, probably any giga. I keep an allo in the cave for the regular ice worms, it's a 330ish, it does fine on the queen.
  22. Wouldn't it take radiation damage and die?
  23. Tamed a bunch of procomptodons. I had forgotten how good of a mount they can be.
  24. I'm going to post what I did yesterday. Yesterday, I found and killed an alpha leeds. Been playing ark for two years and I've never even seen one. I'm on a story mode run thru the canon maps and I needed it to do the alpha tek cave. My tribe mate was trying to breed up a basi male for himself so we could run caves together and I took my female basi out and did a quick spin around herbie island where my water stuff is. Found it almost immediately. Dumb luck is still lucky. Yesterday I also test ran the beta dragon and didn't get the element or trophy because a deino killed it. So I went back for another round and won again, got what I needed, but lost a yuty and it's asc saddle and two rexes, only got one of their saddles back. My rex saddles are from a BP I got in the easier water cave, asc 265 armor. 14k fiber, 27k hide, 3.6k metal. My rexes are 296 base with 10/10 melee and health mutations. I lose one or two when I fight the alpha broodmother and beta dragon, so I'm not looking forward to the alpha. I take 4 260ish deinons in as well and they put in most of the work. Probably going to double that for the alpha Dragon fight.
  25. Turn off tool tips and the cryo crash will stop.
