      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. breeding Breeding and mutations

    Ideally you want to do this at the start so you wont have to re-create your clean 0/0 stock of females (to avoid re-introducing higher stats) once you start approaching threshold. But it is also worth noting that babies born at levels 379+ are safe, unless you manually level them up all the way to 450.
  2. breeding Breeding and mutations

    Theory (and practice) goes like this: once your babies start to pop at level close to 378 - it is about time to think about downgrading some of less important stats (for example, oxygen and wasted speed) by mating with low level specimens. It wont hurt your dino's performance (downgrading oxy may hurt performance of amphibious species), but will free room for more mutations.
  3. breeding Breeding and mutations

    Level 5 dino means there is only 4 stat points distributed among its 7 stats which leaves room for breeding it down to level 1 (or 2) by mating with another level 5 with different stat distribution. This means that the maximum mutations one can have is 188.
  4. Boss Mammoths?

    Since zone of boss teleportation is a sphere around the terminal, how about: trapping a drop mid-air on a platform and position mammoths around it in 3D. The concern is that mammoths below the drop may end up below the boss arena. Or build some sort of ramp(s) to position some mammoths just above obi terminal.
  5. megatribes cheaters prosper!

    i remember that early early access, when a glitch with RPGs allowed for "infinity" ammo and WC resorted to server wipe back then (except characters). Fun times.
  6. delete NO!!! OC Scorched Earth legacy Servers!!!

    dev quote: Nowhere is says "per region". On contrary "in some capacity" implies some sort of limitation. Situation as you described it may make going to SE server(s) inconvenient but not impossible. As i see it "1 server of each map per region" may be desirable by players, but not practical for WC.
  7. delete NO!!! OC Scorched Earth legacy Servers!!!

    as you said it yourself which means that at least one IS available to you. And latency isnt much of an issue if you are there just to tame a couple of things.
  8. Cant gather meat with carnivorous

    "resource gathering" because "corpse gathering" may refer to corpse loot gathering which is entirely different thing.
  9. i believe all you have to do is override tamed dino exp curve. https://ark.gamepedia.com/Server_Configuration#Game.ini
  10. Pre tame stats question.

    Technically that "jerk" wasnt wrong. Creatures get bonus wild/base levels that are allocated between stats randomly upon taming and amount of bonus levels depends on TE.
  11. Pre tame stats question.

    Theoretically and statistically it would be better, BUT thats only if you have unlimited supply of high level dinos readily available to tame. In reality you want to take all the chances you can get because the supply is very unsteady: it may take sometimes days until you find that elusive max level (quetz for example), then roll a dice on its pre-tame stats, then roll a dice on its post-tame stats.
  12. ideally you want something with 50+ points in a single stat post-tame, but those are very rare. 45+ points are a good start and easier to find.
  13. Bred dino increased level without mutation?

    wasted points refer to points wild dinos spent into speed. When you breed for stats the first thing you should learn is to go away from the concept of "level". Difference in overall level can be explained with a different combination of stats from its parents that yields higher total amount of points spent into stats (aka level). If you include screenshots of parents and baby - i'm pretty sure it would become clear where those 5 levels came from.
  14. A Survivors Thoughts on the Raptor TLC Pass

    there are several reasons why "early game players" cried rivers about Troodons until they have been nerfed into oblivion. One of which is "they can be found easily on the beaches". Another one is that they could easily immobilize and kill unmounted player. Raptors are readily available and will be able to immobilize players. Fast? maybe. Strong? definitely not. ...flew away into the forest. The end. or ...flew away, then turned around and picked you up from the raptor or the raptor or you on the raptor and threw somewhere in the middle of nowhere from great height. or ...turned around and one-shot your raptor with a shotgun.
  15. Can I transfer online to single player

    You cant. All official servers are in a cluster thus all transfers stored in and limited to the cluster.
