Rock drake saddles (BP)
carbonark replied to SunsetErosion's topic in GeneralIf you aren’t limited to Aberration, you can try farming OSD’s on ext or red loot crates on genesis. Those also have bp’s in the loot table and can be easier to farm consistently since you don’t have to wait on drops respawning or night time on the surface
Honestly it's generally best to avoid transferring during events (at least on officials) since server crashes are way more common and frequent. If you absolutely need to transfer, only take gear that you're willing to lose because if the server you join crashes and rolls back you'll lose anything you had on you
The Island - Edge of Map killed me, all is lost
carbonark replied to Helios1's topic in General DiscussionSeems anti-mesh is still working as intended. Screwing over legit players, while doing almost nothing to cut down on the exact thing it was meant to solve
Happy to help, to be fair racers tend to only find use towards the endgame side of ark content so it's easy to understand how you could miss it. That and the fact that people intentionally try to keep some of that quiet when it comes to certain builds since it's technically illegal to use some of those types of builds and if people don't know about it exploiters can get away with it longer.
The reason the paracer structure limit is so low is because of how good they are in pvp, people already have builds that basically block most incoming damage as it is. With a higher structure limit you'll be seeing much worse builds. Keep in mind that in pvp you aren't talking about tamed paracers, but bred up lines with 100k+ hp that can soak for days with no risk to the rider who can be safely tucked away in a metal box up top. Giving them the ability to break turrets and metal structures would be one of the worst possible balance changes you could make. You said you wanted them to be "siege brontos" and that's essentially what they are in pvp clusters. That being said the only thing I want from TLC 4 is breedable rock drakes.
Sounds like business as usual for official servers.
Did you try joining the server? Seeing day 1 on the server list doesn’t mean anything was wiped
The answer is a bit complicated, as there are a lot of factors involved. To some extent your experience may be in part to the server you spend most of your time on, some servers are more stable than others. Generally paid DLC maps (Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, Genesis) tend to be a bit more stable but, again a certain server could just be in bad shape regardless of the map. Keep in mind that at each server save, which happens about every 15 minutes (this is the same as the timer on transferring or uploading), there will be lag spikes which will can be much longer if there's a lot built up on the server. There is also the winter event going on, and any event will usually take a toll on official servers. Between more people active and especially if there's a lot of breeding/raising going on. The disconnects do happen occasionally, but since the mega boosted rates for the charity event and TLC patch they seem to be much more frequent on pretty much all official servers. There could be a bug causing it, but honestly no players would really know whats going on with it. Finally as you're on pvp, it's worth noting that there are... reasons... why some players or tribes may want to purposely induce lag/crashes. I'll leave it at that
