  1. Welcome to ARK and congratulations to losing your sleep ins and early nights Firstly, what map are you playing on, I guess it is Island? If so there is a herbivore island which you can get to, and it will be perfect as there are no carnivores and you can start a base and then tame your first flyer more easily (Pteras can be bola'd and these are great starter birds). Once this is done, build some taming pens to catch the larger carnivores and once you have one of these you can go round killing most things you see, and you will level up sufficiently quicker than by grinding resources. Once you get comfortable on your local non-dedicated server, I would suggest moving onto an Official PvE server as being part of a community will open you up to great new adventures. Feel free to ask any further questions, I think the posts above have answered nearly everything you originally asked
  2. Not if you trade for the Fridge and Pods you dont.
  3. I didnt get up to much last night. Hatched 12 Allo eggs, only one was a keeper, and hatched 30 Pteranadon eggs, again, no keepers. Giga is pretty much complete (spare one for meat harvesting) and my Yutys made it to 10% without dying this time! Whohoo!!! Tonight I am going to attempt my 190 Holiday Rock Drake Egg and then tomorrow, Ill be attempting the Wyverns Roll on Friday so I can get home and play some more ARK
  4. I guess for the week, this topic may be more along the lines of 'what dinos have you bred'. Last night I had a little luck, my Allos (stats are pretty average so wasnt expecting a good level) came out at 246 and a few stats still to go just to move it over the 250 mark, Im fairly happy as wasnt expecting them to get that high, I can no go tame new ones looking for much better stats. Pteras didnt do a lot last night, nothing new, killed off about 10. Yutys, raising 2 at the moment, my nice 258 11k HP and 385MD and my nice Green Mutated 224 as a back up - my aim for this event was to get these raised and imprinted and then do a Rock Drake and Wyvern too. Had a nice surprise when a friend from another tribe said they had me a present, a 190 Fire event egg so looking forward to raising it Had another suprise when she came and dropped 2 nice Spinos are my feet - Abberant versions but one with 520MD and one with 8k HP. Baby popped out 310 so happily taming them both up and will have a breeding pair by the time I get home - I hope (as long as they dont starve). Wife must be getting annoyed with the amount of time Im running upstairs in the evening and perhaps tonight I will have to back off, but I have had some good days so far. Long may it continue.
  5. Last night I raised an Allo pack. Wasnt the intended plan but my eggs hatched unexpectedly. Tonight will be the start of the Yuty I want to get imprinted, also, finish off my spare Giga for meat runs on other servers and then Friday I will start my Rock Drake. Wyverns over the weekend and then I am set
  6. Thats your issue... dont tame a parasaur. It wont win you anything. Try PvE if you dont have the time for PvP. Many game modes, find ones that suit you. WC dont make a game that a particular mode will work for everyone. They wont make a game suited to 'your' needs but to the majority. Many people have succeeded at ARK, but what are your objectives, once you have these you can start to work towards it to succeed. Dont hate the game, hate the players, and find a server where you fit in.
  7. Valentines is what I did last night, but maybe a little noobish the way I went about it. I laid down about 30 eggs as I couldnt see the timers being impacted. I went away for a meat run and when I came back, the hatchery was filled with Gigas, Tappys, Pteras, Rexes, Spinos, Allos... it was truly mayhem. I panicked a bit and started trying to claim and pod and accidentally threw some pods back down, cryosickness dino babies everywhere. I thought I had got it under control, so went to put the pods away only to find that another 10 dinos were sliding across the floor after me... yes, a change I wasnt aware of with the update is that they now follow you when unpodded including when they have cryosickness. Whistle commands didnt work so I slid them down to my raising barn and sat there for an hr until they were awake and ready to be taken off 'follow'. I then had the opportunity to go through all my pods and start killing off the babies which I didnt need. I ended up killing 33 dinos, what a waste of time. I bred out a load more, put eggs down and timers said 1,39hrs so i was like cool, Ill head off and do some bits like tame an event Ptera or Allo. Came back 40 mins later and there were about 20 dinos wandering in the corner. Pfffft. It was only when a tribemate logged in later that he could see the timers properly as my Yuty egg said 4hrs, but to him it was 40 mins. Logged off, logged back in and it was fixed... if only I knew about that before putting up with a panic stricken evening. No muts on my Pteras, Allos got another so food is 15100 now and a blue underbelly which was nice. Nothing else. Ive another 345 Giga thats ready so might as well make the most of it and get another bred out. I have my new Yuty to raise so I will start that later and hopefully this weekend my 190 holiday rock drake and 190 Fire Wyvern will get done too... happy days. What a stressful night that turned out to be.
  8. Either my holiday 190 Rock Drake and if that seems like hard work, Ill hatch out 3 or 4 190 Wyverns and raise those instead. I'd like to go with the Rock Drake but don't play on Ab much these days as it runs like 'dung'.
  9. I have had this conversation with myself recently (what point do I stop doing melee?). Then I realised, I dont need any extra speed or weight as I generally dont go on a metal run solo. Its either with a tribemate taking me out on an Argy or Quetz and me sitting there swinging away. I totally understand that there is a point where the melee doesnt provide much more benefit but exactly what point this is, nobody really can tell you. I think the consensus here is that possibly 550% is enough, which is fine, and any point spent after that is up to you. Ive 3 Ankys, one for metal runs using Argy/Quetz, one for local runs (so it has speed and weight included) and one I have just bred out at 100% but hadnt decided which was I was going to go with it. Some poeople use a ravager on follow as it has a weight reduction so again you can mass harvest the metal, waste of weight if that is what you have put in your anky. There are many ways to do this. Interesting topic, cheers all.
  10. I feel slighted by this GreenRoc. You are on my official server - Center60 and we as a community are in a really good place. There is good general discussions throughout the day, many offerings of help, eggs trading, helping people find lost mounts and you seem very negative in your comments about the ARK community. Now I am not saying there aren't gamers in which you have quoted but to say many is very much overkill. I think the selfish gamers have double the impact on players feelings but I would say there are some great gamers out there. I think our tribe of just 2 is allied with 9 tribes on our server and all are so helpful and friendly that I can only say good things about them. I can echo that on our Ext and Ab server, possibly not on Rag but for me 4 out of the 5 servers we play on, people are pretty cool.
  11. I went on an Allo hunt last night, couldnt find any in close vacinity so I gave up and bred some more and hatched some more. Nothing new, no mutations or anything but I got another stat merged on my Ptera line so 326 now, definitely need some new blood so will try and tame a few later tonight. Hoping to pick up my Yuty egg tonight so that will be a painful few hrs as I will watch it very carefully get to 10.1% mat before feeling safe to leave it this time. 16k ingots now hidden away from my tribemate in a safe, wanting to fill it completely before he say we need to do a metal run because we have run out... then to hear him once I tell him to check 'Anarki's Personal Stash' vault with 70k ingot sitting there I know he has a plan to rebuild a new greenhouse and some little cliff platform huts to turn into new rooms so he will need a lot of metal for that - he builds, I gather. Its a good relationship. He does all our tactics, I just breed things up... it works. So, another night on Center went by quickly and a little good fortune with a stat here and there. Lets hope my Yuty works out and that I can find some new Allos to start breeding as my current line doesnt look like it will turn out particularly well. Oh, and I donated a 269 born Ptera to a new guy who was struggling with the game. I like to do that
  12. Hatched circa 30 Pteranadon eggs, got no muts, and no further stat merging so still only at 321. This has been a horrible second stint of my breeding line since I have returned. I didnt actually tame any new Pteras this weekend as was far too busy with other babies as starting an Allo and Tappy line.. but last night my Giga finally finished... I missed out on 100% imprint by 34 minutes but really, not bothered. Its done and finished and it came out with 35k hp and 437 melee, so now just to level it up and enjoy her My Yuty died... after i got my 10k hp and 325% melee Yuty breeded out and was raising it, I left it at 7.8% maturation, full of food, and then logged off and my tribemate was going to pod it before he went to bed. I came on the following morning - no sign of Yuty so I guessed he podded it before it hit trough stage but I couldnt find the pod in the fridges. Checked tribelog - starved to death! From 7.8% with full meat in inv how did it starve to death?!! Seriously gutted as loved the colouring. Hopefully an ally is going to give me an egg with slightly better stats - around 260 so will try even harder to raise and imprint on it. Rebuilt my Taming pen and will now try for new Allo stats, and made a huge metal run so we are fine for the next few weeks. So, essentially, I raised 6 Pteras over the weekend, 4 Tappys, 4 Allos, 1 Giga completed, 1 Anky at 94% and tribemate did many Troodons. It hasnt been a bad week, even with losing 3% on my Giga imprint and losing my lovely coloured Yuty. This week will be a little less time spent on ARK but Ill carry on getting some eggs from the Tappys, Pteras, Allos and see if I can increase some of the levels, it looks as though the Tappys may come out in the late 260's with no mutations, but the Allos definitely seem weaker at around 240. Pterandons are working on 2 lines, clean at 321 and Mutated should be 338 if I had of imprinted the babies when i left them to die... must have been 10 seconds too late once they had hatched.
  13. 1. Check game requirements before purchasing - you may have not have a GPU that is good enough. 2. Check videos of people playing ARK and see how smooth the experience can be 3. Yes, its an indie developer, not triple A title from Blizzard. This came out of early access and even with its many flaws its an enjoyable game for most 4. If you dont like, get a refund - dont post on the forums in a petulant little rant like a teenager who just lost at CoD.
  14. Last night was a bit of a washout. I think I burnt myself out over the last week. I think I just let my Gigas and Rex mature for a few hrs, bred some of the Allos and readied some eggs for hatching. I may play a bit tonight but tomorrow will definitely be the main appearance for this week as I have a good supply of eggs to hatch... which should allow me to kill off some of the parents (I just hope the babies survive). Currently breeding lines are: Allos, Pteras, Tappys, Barys, Rexes (but only for adding colours to new stats), Yutys, Rhinos, Gigas, Argies, Troodons, Theris, Quetz's, Spinos, Monkeys and Sabers. Its amazing how I start something, then a few weeks later get distracted and then a few weeks later try coming back to it only to find out that I cant remember where I was. I have decided that all my main dinos need to hatch a lvl 300+ and for some its a slow burner but we are already there with: Pteras, Rexes, Thylas, Ankys, Argies and Bears. Its going to be a long slog, and not all the work for the above has been mine as I play on a really good official server with a great community so we share stats etc but its an ambition that gives me something to do. I think the Allos and Yutys will stop at 250 but the others like the Gigas, Barys, Spinos and Tappys should all get to 275 without too much effort. What is everyone else working on?
  15. So I probably played more ARK this weekend than any in 2019 so far, probably an unhealthy amount but that is what happens when you are breeding, hatching, breed hatching, killing, feeding etc. It was fairly decent though. I now have a male and female clean 312 Pteras, and I finally got all my colours onto a decent 317 (slightly muted) bird but the colours were perfect. I am basically creating 4 clean lines, which will go for mutation stacking... just need a few more birds to integrate. Allos are coming along and I think tonight, Ill have 3 breeding pairs to try and move stats over. Very similar story with the Tappys but they are definitely taking longer. As it stands, the Gigas are almost done, the Yuty's are just starting and managed to get one with 10k hp base with 2k stamina, which seems ok as noone on the server seems to have any better. We did an Alpha run on Center for a guy on our server who needed the engrams, and other than getting artifacts... I just bred and bred. Tribemate then laid down the new Rex baby they got.... Black body with White scaled back and underbelly... seriously cool. Tonight will just be getting timers down and imprint when I can, will probably take a day or two off so I can relax a bit more.
  16. Sorry I dont. Tribemates have done the trades with him for the eggs, and they are so worth it. Get posting and soon youll access the trading section. I would suggest not getting them from anyone else who offers as the work is his own and its right for him to get his work recognised. Ill link him here, and maybe he will get in touch - @bertnoobians
  17. Depends on which map you are attempting the bosses. On Center and Rag, we have completed Alpha Brood/Ape and Dragon with 15 Rexes and a Yuty. I ride the Yuty (not imprinted to me) and tribemate rides the lead Rex. With the Yuty buff, Brood/Ape is ridiculously easy. Dragon was a bit more of a challlenge as its a patience game until it lands and then you nuke it. Take out the Golems when they come and rinse and repeat. The Theriz do have the bonus for healing with a veggie cake but again, if you get a decent set of Rexes you wont have any issues (you can get Bert Noobians 702MD eggs cheap from him or even pay for the nice 809MD eggs - just look him up in the trading section). Island I believe is a lot harder and you will want Theriz.
  18. Whahey! Fianlly, moved my Ptera line on - got 3 of the 6 stats so just need to get a further 3 more added to the mutated line - should be coming out 335+ and then I can start mutations on a clean line again and get to the 350 within a few weeks. I worked out 377 I think is the max I can go otherwise they will hot the 450 and have unspent levels which will do my head in - already having that issues with the Boss Rexes we have. Got my first Allo mutation last night, melee went from 343 to 361 (I know it isnt as good as what people are breeding) but I only started my line on Tuesday, currently at 231 but I have 4 stats to add to that. Ill be happy just getting to 275 born and having an Allo pack (x5) to go on a rampage with. So it was breed, breed, incubate, incubate a bit more, hatch, kill, hatch, pod, hatch, feed, meat run, feed, breed, incubate for about 5 hrs last night. Gigas are at 30% and 65% so thats good and new boss Rex is at 30% so Ill have those raised soon too. I had a little scout around and decided I still need to raise my 190 Lightning Wyv, My 190 Rock Drake holiday colour, My high level Basi (Think its 265) and a Yuty of over 245 - all need 100% imprint but where to start when raising so much. So last night was good, stayed up far too late and will probably do some tonight too but wife will be home so wont be on too early as that would be bad wouldnt it ARK'ers Oh and if any of you are on Official PvE servers and have some good Ptera stats - please PM me, Ill happily pay
  19. I logged on the last couple of nights and continued my Ptera line but with no further stat rewards... I will keep on hatching and hope to get some luck even though I seem to have accidentally killed off a nice clean food statted Ptera in the past month or so as its missing and would have helped move my clean line along a little. My Giga is now at 60% with 58% imprint so its slowly getting there - these things take ages when you have a 9-5 job and a family to entertain. Started on a fresh line of Allos - hatched out at 231 and have a 221 with 2 new stats to add into it. Hopefully by the weekend Ill be hatching at 250 which will be nice... Im going to make a nice taming trap over the river so I can trap and tame some more. Tappy line is absolutely weak even though Im sure we have some nice stats in there but they are only hatching out at 219 so I am literally getting one good stat and then all the bad ones with it Other than that, I have fed, bred, incubated, hatched possibly 30 eggs in 2 days. I will try again tonight to see if I can progress
