  1. Just some semi coherent thoughts and ideas about how to improve the Trike, if you have any good ideas please comment below. So currently Triceratops in Ark are fairly easy and early tames in game, they’re very slow, have a subpar stun attack, and are surprisingly small. I’d like to see Ark 2 Trikes on par with some of the later game tames like Rexes and Yutys, being a similar size to both and being a very tanky and powerful fighter. I’d like to see Trikes and possibly even Pachyrhinosaurus that can stand up against predators and do well in a fight, boss fights, PvP fights, pretty much any major combat scenario in Ark. I think the charge attack could be cool if it did more damage to targets, additionally the ability to turn in place would suit an animal like that. Being able to turn on a dime and deal and take more damage would make for an excellent late game tame, additionally it would also be good to have a Trike that is around the same size as a Rex since both animals are fairly comparable in size. This added with a high weight and decent mobility can make it a good pack animal, able to survive attacks from predators easily and effectively cross rough terrain.

  2. That’s an interesting idea but the Titanoceratops is more reminiscent of a Tower shield/Battering ram, it’s more of a medieval weapon of war compared to a tank despite it possibly being quite tanky. I wanted something to kinda fit that medieval/viking theme, also we kinda already got a tank/atv with the Andrewsarchus.
  3. The “Giga killer” was more or less just to gain more attention since a lot of people liked the Giga counter idea, I do however do not want this creature to be tiny like the Trike. I wanted this thing to be on par with the other large dinos like rexes, I don’t want another situation like the Trike or Pachyrhino where it’s small, weak, and can be killed in a few bites. I did also flesh out it’s utility as a slow but powerful tower shield/battering ram with anti bear trap/spike wall capabilities and the ability to deal higher damage towards creatures of a higher drag weight. It has it’s weaknesses like an unarmored backside, slow speed and turn, and high vulnerability to fire.
  4. I like a lot of people really REALLY want a TLC for the sea creatures of Ark and in my personal opinion I think that the new TLC creature should be Liopleurodon, in game it’s essentially a subpar loot booster which is a temporary and extremely rare tame. Most people including me never tame it because it’s kinda useless, it’s far too rare, it’s a very short temporary tame, it’s slow and weak, and it’s loot boosting abilities are meh at best. It’s best use is for hide and meat and even then it’s not worth batting an eye at, I have a comprehensive idea on how to fix this creature and make it a very good tame than many Ark players would regularly seek out to tame. I even have some sketch work on what it could look like with a TLC which I will post below along with a list of it’s abilities and changes, I hope you all enjoy. In the wild Liopleurodon will still be rare however much less rare than it’s current counterpart and even such creatures as Ovis, it is still a passive tame requiring raw meat and or kibble to tame. It is skittish when approached by tames but will be docile towards players. Once tamed it can be ridden either bare back or with a special saddle containing a mounted harpoon gun and a second seat, the harpoon gun can shoot both normal harpoons and tranq harpoons making it a good tamer for undersea dinos. It’s main abilities beyond the saddle are a depth buff that once descended deep enough will gain a higher damage resistance along with a faster healing rate, it’s like the opposite effect of the Basilosaurus minus the damage over time. High agility in the water being able to swim in any direction like a Tapejara making it easy to dodge some of the more powerful predators like Plesiosaurs and Mosasaurs, it is also relatively fast being only slightly slower than a Megalodon. It also has the ability to snatch riders off of mounts when tamed and without a saddle, with a saddle it’s alt attack is a harpoon shot similar in function to the Tropeognathus’s flak cannon. It can also snatch smaller creatures such as the Ichthyosaur, Manta, or Baryonyx. It has modest health and a fairly powerful bite attack which is good for dispatching targets like Megalodon but generally not strong enough to kill dinos like Mosas and Tusos. It doesn’t just have a normal variant and will include a magical variant that acts very similarly to the base game Liopleurodon but greatly enhanced, it appears with a magical aura surrounding it and will feature a prominent Unicorn like horn distinguishing it form the base Liopleurodon. While it will be rarer and a temporary tame it will be speedy in the water and will boost all loot to Ascendent level, It will also increase the rate of drops in a certain area allowing for the collection of more loot. After a certain amount of time it will disappear like the current Liopleurodon, the base TLC variant will be a permanent tame and will be breedable.
  5. Because A. It’s not another trike, B. because both in game ceratopsians are terribly weak especially the Pachyrhinosaurus, and C. because there’s a huge variety of ceratopsians and the one I’m suggesting is anatomically unique compared to both trike and pachyrhino.
  6. I hate to break it to you but Elasmotherium likely did not have the giant horn, it may not have even had a horn at all. Based on a very very recent paper published it had a fairly hollow skull connected to the nasal cavity that was likely used for sound resonation like a Parasaurolophus, so the idea of this creature being a bigger rhino is somewhat out of the question. However the idea of it spraying an icy mist from it’s nostrils and or creating a powerful roar could definitely work for it, it could still have some really unique and cool ideas despite it not having it’s giant horn. It could possibly even produce mini hurricanes with a roar that send dinos flying or possibly even stunning them in the process. https://twitter.com/centralcenozoic/status/1461886873283047427?s=21
  7. We have Coelodonta, Elasmotherium had a single horn while Coelodonta had two large curved horns.
  8. If the bison wins I really don’t care, we still get a giant horned herbivore regardless. I do hope if it does win that Ark devs will add in an actual dinosaur or other prehistoric reptile.
  9. The main point of my suggestion for another ceratopsian is A. the in game ceratopsians are laughably weak and B. because Titanoceratops and similarly related chasmosaurines are unique in that they have insanely tall frills, humped backs, and truly impressive horns and hornlets. They’re just all around cool and Ark could really use some more ceratopsian diversity wether it be Titanoceratops, Psittacosaurus, or Protoceratops.
  10. I’d like that a lot actually, I had suggested it in my Titanoceratops vote. Herd bonuses should’ve been a thing in Ark long ago, the game is heavily predator oriented and it kinda sucks that a lot of powerful animals like Triceratops, Parasaurolophus, and Iguanodon are reduced to weak beach tames.
  11. Mapusaurus is even more Giga like in appearance than Carchar is, in fact they’re extremely closely related and lived only a few million years apart.
  12. Ichthyosaurs seriously need more love and are incredibly diverse, I’d love to see either Cymbospondylus or Temnodontosaurus in game as a fast agile sea mount.
  13. FYI Ulughbegsaurus is smaller than both T. rex and Allosaurus, actually it was probably even smaller than Megalosaurus. https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/636044-an-important-but-off-topic-look-at-ulughbegsaurus/
  14. Megaraptor is not a dromeosaur, it’s actually very closely related to tyrannosaurs and compsognathids. It also never held the signature feature of dromeosaurs, the large recurved killing claw. The massive hand claws of Megaraptor were mistaken for a dromeosaur toe claw until they found the rest of the hand.
  15. Yay I’m a chainsaw! Jokes aside it’s a really neat idea.
