Cloth Armor (2/5)



  1. I play on Xbox. Lost my single player game about 2 years ago. Just woke up one morning and everything was gone. Sorry, but welcome to Ark. I switched to PVE after that... for the reason mentioned above... Devs might be able to help you get it back in PVE / PVP should something like that again.
  2. Limited down-load servers are probably for people that like the challenges of starting with very little and be surrounded by people that relate to your struggles. I am one of them. You can transfer your survivor but cannot take any tames from other servers with you. It forces you to tame as you go, to experience life on foot for awhile again. I try to do this whenever I explore a new map, JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT. Sometimes I give it a week, sometimes a month before tapping into resources and dinos from other arks. It's pretty refreshing in my opinion. And now on LDL, any tames you see running around you'll know they were home grown on that map. If you are one of the players that race to tek tier, enjoy the toys and conveniences they offer, and never want to look back... then LDL servers are probably not for you. I would imagine, on PVE servers at least, that it would promote a healthy community of players that work together through trade and cooperation to overcome the challenges. Players might be more willing to lend a helping hand again. In a normal world these days Max stat boss dinos are a dime a dozen on some servers it seems like. Everybody has them. In LDL servers, perspective will change where level 150 tamed dinos with good stats would be coveted and celebrated again. There are also many people that don't like playing next to dino factories. You know what I'm talking about... the walmart looking bases with herds of rexes and gigas standing around the cloning chambers. Yes, eventually LDL servers will have them too. But not until somebody actually puts in the time to tame and breed a line good enough that warrants / justifies a clone. On official servers....wow...it will be awhile.
  3. Official PVE Hey gang. It's been awhile since my last post. Spent most of the summer just treading water and maintaining bases while my tribe-mates and myself take turns going on vacation and enjoying things outside of the game. Good to take a break once in awhile I think. But recently I did start an alt survivor on Lost Island and have been exploring mostly by raft in my free time. I purposely have not tamed anything there. I've been doing everything by hand, foot, and boat. But the other day I did tame a mid-level sinomacrops and found a pretty little spot for a house perched high up on a cliff above the beach. So I started building. Spent the better part of two days flying back and forth with supplies. My little friend was a real work horse. However, before I could put down a bed (which was in my inventory)... we died.... to a troodon of all things . And now I can't get back to my house until I tame another flyer. I should have thought that through a little better.
  4. As far as I know (but could be wrong)...the 1 hour timer that begins at the time you open the cave door is to START the fight with the Overseer. I've seen some videos say you only have to teleport up to the terminal before it runs out. IDK for sure on that. But either way, I've never heard of anyone getting booted from the fight once it starts unless you die. Hope that helps a little.
  5. Time saving tip. Just ride on the giga or use a couple of rexes to clear the path. Leave all others in pods so you don't have to worry about the train. Unpod the team on the ledge you mentioned. You will even have time to walk them down to the cold zone in smaller groups by making a couple trips...and avoid losing some to the lava. I think the timer is to start the fight with the Overseer. Don't worry about the timer after the fight has begun. The fight itself can take as long as you need.
  6. I think @Medasin is talking about the bug where the pick axe engram disappears and there is no way to craft one. It happens to me sometimes when I visit a new server. If I remember right, I think all you have to do is move that survivor from one server to another (and back again) and is should come back for you.
  7. Just curious if anyone else is suddenly having trouble transferring themselves or items with a transmitter on PVE XBox official servers? Me and my tribe mate are both having trouble uploading and downloading items and our survivors. When we try it acts like it is thinking about it then it gives us a timed out message.
  8. Event rates ended, but I think we get colors for whole month.
  9. PVE official Island: Moschops have been spawning on my beach at a high rate, and since I noticed recently that I am low on superior kibble I said what the heck... and now have a small army of moschops in pods. I take them out every other day and get a new set of eggs for kibble. easy peasy. Took new tribemate to fight beta dragon last night. Always fun. Crystal Isles: I don't know if it normal for wyvern eggs to spawn this high or if it's just from the birthday event, but I found a 210 blood egg and a 215 ember egg this weekend. Very happy with that. Gave the 215 to my new tribemate. Ragnarok: Raised wyverns.
  10. This translates to... I have now downloaded Ark via the GamePass from the xBox app to the Pc and wanted to cheerfully play and craft. The problem is that I can't click the button, it's not evoked like the other buttons with the bluish background. Can someone help me so that I can gamble? Friends of mine have the same problem. Sorry, some words might not have translated perfectly and, I don't know the answer to this. Anyone able to help here?
  11. Thanks. I forgot you can run them on shards. I don't have a stryder so it will just take a little more time to gather. All good though.
  12. I like it for single player, but not for PVE. They'd all be taken by other players and you'd never get to see or enjoy them on a multiplayer game for what they are...ruins.
  13. PVE Official Crystal Isles Been working on new base. Finally got it move-in ready and now just need to do some finishing touches and start moving stuff over. In the process of placing things this weekend, like lights and fridges, I realized just how much I hate wires and it is a little bit of an art to keep things hidden. I have never really played with batteries before but decided to make a few and try them out. I was very happy with the wireless system until I discovered batteries didn't even last more than 8 hours in a fridge. Disappointed, I went back to generator power for now. I will likely switch to tek power once I beat the wyvern queen a couple times. Took a break from building and explored Eldritch Isle in the NE corner of Crystal Isles. I had done some fly overs before but never really spent any time there. I never realized there are Aberrant creatures there and now have plans to go back and do some taming. I did tame my first featherlight while I was there, which is pretty cool. On the way back to base I stopped in the floating island and grabbed the artifact of the pack. Found a pair of female 145 glowtails and couldn't pass them up. Later, I tamed a 145 ravager in the desert. Good weekend.
  14. Question 1. My guess it those are not the breeding stats for Giga Two and that's why you're not getting the health you want after 100 eggs. Was that giga levelled or imprinted? If so, then the breeding stats are less that what you see in many stat categories. Question 2. I don't see the issue. You bred spinos (One and Six) and got the better Melee and Health from One...and the best Stamina from Six. Whenever you breed you will have a chance of getting some stats from Female and some stats from Male with a slightly better chance of getting the higher stat. Looks pretty normal to me.
  15. Frank or Bob will work. Let me know if you need any more name ideas. I have lots.
