I come from Alberta so I figured I would submit this to maybe get a creature dedicated to where I live in Ark.
Design - First picture is of an Allosaurus but I thought that one could fit the design of the Albertosaurus. The 2nd one is an alternative design because I know that Fjordur has a lot of snow so I thought a furry design was good as well.
Passive - Intolerance - This creature has been perfect by the overseers for the ark's for thousands of years they have been developed with an unimaginable amount of endurance when on long trips. The longer the Albertosaurus is walking or sprinting the less amount of stamina it uses. Decrease amount of stamina used by 10% every 30 minute up to a maximum of 50% reduction to the amount of stamina used.
1 - Defensive Position - Activate with C to change your Albertosaurus’s stance to a defensive position exposing the side of the beast and taking 30% reduced damage when in this stance.
2 - Charge - Whenever you are holding your attack the Albertosaurus will start a charging stance running at the same speed as sprinting as well as taking 30% reduced damage if doing this in your defensive stance but reduces your stamina increasing more the longer you are charging. If not holding the Charge attack when in the Defensive stance it will do a smash attack hitting anything in it's way with the side of the creature. Any creatures that are in the way of the Albertosaurus will be delt significant damage and knockback due to the sheer force this beast inflicts upon others.
After hitting a large object while charging the Albertosaurus has a 3 second fatigue where it flips over on it's back, gets up and roars then you will have a 5 second delay before it can charge again.
( This attack fatigue and delay was for balancing out the attack so that this attack could not be spammed during PvP raids. )
3 - Jaw Lock -
a) Whenever attacking a creature slightly smaller than itself or larger than ( A stegosaurus or larger ) it will bite onto the creature making it have the bleed effect and slightly shaking it doing more damage the longer it is held but using up more stamina the longer it is held.
b) When attacking a smaller creature ( Trike sized to a Iguanodon ) it will lock in its jaw and drag the creature doing bled effect as well.
c) If attacking a smaller creature than a iguanodon it grabs the creature up into its mouth shaking rapidly causing the bleed effect, the Albertosaurus will occasionally hit it with it's sharp hand claws inflict double the bleed damage for a short 3 second duration, if a creature of this small size is killed while being held instead of having a corpse it swallows the creature whole.
d) If Jaw locked on a sauropod it will slash at the legs of the sauropod cause it to walk or run slower when being bitten onto.
4 - When using a Jaw Lock on a Creature Iguanodon sized or lower it will grab it in its mouth allowing it to be transported in its mouth without being killed
Saddle Design -
Crafting an Albertosaurus’s saddle can have 1 of 2 designs. The first design is a primitive saddle just like any other but it has a more expensive saddle.
The more expensive metallic saddle requires materials such as obsidian, organic polymer and gunpowder. If you put grenades in the Albertosaurus’s inventory the saddle will be able to shoot out modified grenades with 20% more damage and instantly explode when hitting any form of object.
Size - Slightly bigger than an Allosaurus in Ark :
42 feet long
20 feet tall
Behavior - Would hunt alone or in packs of 2 - 3 each member of the pack gains a 30% buff to everything when the alpha does an alpha roar.
Taming Method: The more creatures you kill around its vicinity will show the Albertosaurus that you could be a valuable ally gaining it’s respect. Although it will attack you if too close. Once you have killed enough creatures it will stay at a 99.9% taming and will keep it’s taming effectiveness until it challenges you to a battle. Don’t worry, attacking the creature won’t make it lose it’s taming effectiveness or percent, just don’t kill it. Once it reaches below 10% of its hp it will join your ranks as it will be yours. It may call off a battle requiring you to kill more creatures until you gain it’s interest again and it will challenge you. It will keep repeating this process until it is tamed.
