  1. Congratulations, it must be nice getting your first bosses down. I went and completed an Ice Cave run on my bear with my tribe mate. Nice and smooth but as usual - my loot drops sucked! I have no luck at the moment with any drops! Maybe Ill have better luck later!
  2. 3x taming etc for the weekend - too good an opportunity to miss. I don't usually do the raising of our babies but my tribe mate said this is as good as any to imprint so I might as well have a go with a Rex. We had a pair of fertilized eggs ready to hatch and they were from a pair of 145 and 150 Rexes. We didnt expect anything too major so just thought we would hatch both eggs and keep the best one. My albino hatched and it had a cool green underbelly so I grabbed and imprinted instantly. A few seconds later the other egg hatched and it was TRIPLETS! It was hilarious, my tribe mate was running around trying to imprint on them all. Mine came out as a 243 and his 3 were 221's so nothing too special. We ended up killing two and then he and I imprinted our babies to 78% over the weekend - quite happy for my first Rex upbringing. Stats were roughly 11k hp, 425 melee at 92 maturation last night when I logged off, Ill check it later - but I was happy with my new Rex. My 2 other ventures were quite fun too... I hadnt got a red beacon I dont think on my 2nd time round of playing but there was one over the sea so jumped on 'Dash' our 299 Ptera and off I went. I managed to get there and grab the contents before a Troodon and a Theri tore me up. Industrial Forge BP and a Journeyman Bronto saddle BP - not too bad. My final venture was a run on my bear where I spotted an A Raptor on my return from the beacon. I found the Alpha and he had a pair of Theris close by. I took out the Alpha easily enough (145) and then both Theris attacked soon after. This is where I learnt riding naked wasnt a good plan. I usually ride naked as I live in the jungles and hate overheating and usually I have no issues killing things when on my bear. However, in this case the second Theri managed to knock me out and off my bear (luckily bear was on neutral). The bear killed the Theri but I had a 30 second wait close to death before I woke up and could remount my bear. next time, Ill wear an armour
  3. What a great weekend - I do love the 2x events. We managed to get a 3rd Bee and a new high lvl Doed as we needed a lot of stone for our new pillared outhouse (being built especially to house our large carnivorous dinos) and the current lvl 70 doed just wasn’t cutting the standard for our needs. My tribemate and I had some plans for the weekend but don't you find that best laid plans always go to pot? The idea was to go and get some high lvl bears so we could breed it with our mutated blue bears but we just never got round to it. We did manage to get a lvl 150 Female Rex that just happened to wander over to our base, right by the taming pen. So we now have a 150 female and 2 145 males – breed plans are now devised. We lost our 150 megalodon and dolphin recently as something managed to glitch in and kill them (can’t remember what the tribe log said it was now) but we weren’t too bothered as water dinos aren’t our priority at the moment. So, the idea was to get our 2 spare blue bears (bred from mummy and daddy blue bears) and get them up to the frozen biome so we could house them by our base by the ice cave – we had a little run on wolves in there but they didn’t seem a viable choice. We took the bears over the jungles mid area to the beach facing the swamp and lay out a raft. Jumped aboard and navigated our raft close to (but not too close) to the swamp and praying a Leeds didn’t appear out of nowhere. We made it… landed safely on the snow biome and was heartily welcomed by a pack of wolves. It was quite wonderful having a different biome to look at rather than just jungles and beach where our main base is currently situated. So we checked in our base right by the snow cave, dropped off some resources, equipped ourselves and went on a first proper run to see how our Bears would fare against the Yeti’s. On first glance, there were many of the buggers, wolves, sabres, yeti’s and spiders. The cave was huge and I had a feeling that our 5k hp and 550 melee bears weren’t going to be enough and that we would have to return to bring our Rex’s. Oh, how I got that wrong – the Bears were the perfect answer for the caves. Took out a trio of wolves and my tribemate and I took on a pair of lvl 90 yetis – we only lost like 300 hp so we were happy. We found 3 yellow loot crates and typically the one I opened had nothing important in – an apprentice hide boot bp – serious! I did get the Artifact of the Skylord though as my tribemate managed to get a nice MC Carno Saddle (possibly bp – cant remember) and a nice journeyman longbow bp from his two yellow loot crates. So we ambled around and killed some more in search of the way out – saw a frozen (literally trapped in the ice) Rex and a wolf which was quite a nice look and then headed back to base. We were thoroughly happy ourselves… the Ice Cave is probably solo with our nice bears but for the next few times we will probably do it together just to be safe – and knowing me, I’d get lost anyway… it’s a great habit of mine when playing ARK. So, as far as I am aware now, the artefacts we have are Cunning, Immune and now Skylord. Not sure how many others there are on the Centre but one by one we will tick them off. I think for the rest of this week we will endeavour to finish off one of the buildings (either the snow biome base or the new outbuilding back at the main base).
  4. Ive been away DH mountain biking in the french Alps. I returned to the game last night to find my tribemate had got to perfect tame Spino's and another 145 Rex. He had been busy. As I entered our main building, our twin bears (blue) had multiplied by 3 and there were now 6 bears. He logged on shortly after I and explained his exploits. He had done well, I had only been gone a week. We play on the Center and he had found a little cave (which we must have passed many times before but never saw). It is jungles mid region and in that cave spawn 2 bears. Basically, he’s put a pen outside, checks out the lvls of the bears, if he likes the look of one, kites it to the pen and tames, if he doenst like the lvls, he kills them off, leaves the area and returns to 2 new bears. It seems a wonderful little trick to max out some super bears. After he showed me his new little place, we hopped on the doed and anky and collected stone. As weve some bigger dinos now (2 rex, 2 Spinos and Allosaur) we have decided that the building isn’t big enough. It appears that people on our server only build with pillars so weve decided to do the same which will allow us to build further out and slightly above the sea (we have run out of decent space). I then spot an Alpha Raptor and a standard Rex. I run in (naked), hop on my 262 Blue Bear and off I jog to take them on. Rex died pretty much instantly, and then Im taking out the Alpha Raptor – got it down fairly easily before realising an Alpha Carno was speeding in my direction from behind (how I didn’t see that bugger I wont know). I took some hits, realised I was already a ¼ down on hp and decided I wasn’t sure if this was a good idea. I ran. The Carno got distracted by some brontos so I got my tribemate to jump on his bear and we returned and took out the Carno with ease. I really am liking the extra Alphas that are spawning now, but I do need to be a little careful as I never checked the lvl of either the Rex, A Raptor or A Carno. Tonight will be more stone grinding, bear trapping and possibly trekking a pair of bears up to our snow base ready for the Cave. I do hope that no Leeds spawn by the swamp area as I need to get my bears over using a raft.
  5. It wasnt today but it was my weekends fun. We started off with the idea of making a second base up in the frozen area not far from the redwood biome (just by the land bridge). We carted a load of mats in our two Argies and with a 3rd Argy on follow. We found a nice flat area and proceeded to lay down foundations and walls. A lovely pack of wolves were passing by when the Alpha was a lovely black 145 male. I cant remember the stats now but we tamed it in our half built chateau by kiting it through the dino gate whilst running out the other gate. We were running out of mats so flew back to our base over on the coast of Jungles Mid and on the way came across as 145 male Rex which seemed odd as we have only seen low lvls spawn in this area. I quickly returned to base and brought of my blue bear so I could kite the beast back to the taming pen my tribemate had built the previous night - he only made it to test his theory. Luckily for us the Rex fell in and couldnt escape, plunged a load of tranq arrows into and we ended up with a nice Rex - nothing too great on stats but still a decent tame - around 8.5k hp I think with 365 melee. So what was just going to be a couple of hrs session building up our frozen chateau ended up with a pair of nice 145 tames but also about 3hrs more time than I expected haha
  6. That's a lot of Ptera's, any particular nice stats from them?
  7. OK, so I will try to keep this succinct but there is so much to tell. I basically shoved the wife and daughter off for the day and I used the 2 x weekend to really learn about ARK and breeding. My tribepartner and I bred our Pteras and out popped a 244 baby with 500 stam, 375 melee, 260 weight and 1200 hp - I was amazed. No mutations colourwise but I can always breed something in later on down the line. Went and tamed a nice Argy as my battle bird - now running 600 melee so was quite pumped after the Ptera result too. Was in need of an Anky and managed to get a 140 so that was helpful too. So. the best bit. Before we went afk on the server we were known to have some nice Bears (just the two but nice enough) and we promised a baby to someone on the server in trade for a Ptera. As the bear dropped out - it was blue!! Anyway as good as our word, we gave up our blue bear and off it went with its new owner. I was messaged yesterday by that same person as to whether I would like a bear in return for our kindness months ago and of course I said yes. They brought the pregnant mother to our base and my tribemate and I watched in anticipation. Yay a Blue 217 bear - TWINS!! We had too, one each, it was awesome, male and female. We managed to imprint 87% on both bears and final stats were 3k hp, 2210 stam, 390 melee and 230 speed. I remember the weight being good too but cant think what it was - possibly 1100. So, we had a pair of wonderful bears, a 244 Ptera, a new high lvl Anky and an Argy... what a great weekend. I know most of you will have better dino's but for my first efforts I was a happy breeder. The battle Argy also had fun with 2 Alpha Carnos, and 3 Alpa Raptors that day - they seem to be spawning close to our base in jungles mid (Centre).
  8. I was trying to get online after the latest patches but was constantly getting kicked off and timed out. I have logged into the main screen seen PING times at 130+ so decided that Ill wait until the official servers are working properly again. It also said its status was 'upgrading to patch 263' or something like that. Tonight, Ive kicked the wife out with her friends so that I cna get a good 5hr session in, whether that be in ARK - it all depends on the server status.
  9. I had a frustrating time last night. I took out our Carno to harvest some meat and things were going quite nicely when... a Pegomastix took my water jar - which is fine, its just a water jar. I proceeded to chase it down and have a few chomps on its tail. After a few chomps Im thiking this must be a 150 Pego. After a few more chomps Im thinking my Carno must have poor melee (which to be honest is poor at only 310%). I chase this thing chomping for a few more minutes and I run out of Stamina (which is poor at 900). I kept my eye on the little buggar and when my stam had regenerated I went on the offensive again. Chomp, chomp, chomp. Again and again and again. Either my Carno has lost some teeth or there is a bug here? I was not going to let this go without reclaiming my water jar now - its just the principle of the thing. Finally, after what is definitely close to 7 minutes, it finally goes down and I claim a hard fought victory against this Superbred Pegomastix. Has anyone else suffered the same frustrating issue of trying to kill a Pego?
  10. I didnt get on ARK last night as I just want to take it easy and not overdo it like last time. I will get on for a few hrs later, and Ill be attempting to get my first high lvl Ptera since returning. I want a breeding line. On a positive note - its good to see you all being relaxed about the possible wipe. I dont mind starting all over again, as I have just found out now - its quite refreshing even though I had a huge base with nearly every dino I ever needed. I guess I havent properly restarted as I was still lvl 77 and had the tribes new base just to start off in. Oh well, time will tell. But if they do, they do, and I for one will still play the game.
  11. Ok, so I have posted my ‘Im back!’ topic, so I guess I can share a story with you all, now that I have returned. I won’t bore you all with the why, or the what, just about what happened on my return. I logged in on Saturday after a few months out, the base was now over the river from our previous cliff base. I get a ‘Anarki is back’ comment from one of the other players – I liked that! My tribemate has been working hard and we are in a foundation stage but I didn’t want to start off the day getting to know the layout. I wanted to borrow a Raptor and check out the local cave and so, off we went. POW, KABOOM, CLASH, SPANK! Ok, so dino’s don’t make those noises but I do when I’m on my mount attacking things! We worked our way through the cave of the Cunning (I’ve named it this due to the artefact that you get from the chest) farming chitin for our MC saddles we wanted to make for 2 of Pteras. Then we get distracted, a 145 Beetle. We were already wearing our gillies so that’s fine. We forget about the artefact and tame a pair of Beetles and return to base. I then state that the Raptor was fine but I wanted my own Sabre as that is what my tribemate was using in the cave. Off to get a Sabre then… but again we get distracted and head off to the Redwoods in search of Beehive. We spot one, and this is the first attempt at getting a bee. It falls to the ground and my tribemate chases after it trying to feed it. Finally he gets it to feed (he wasn’t sure how it worked) but a Pego comes out of nowhere and upon his wild stab with his pike – he kills the bee, typical! He then chases the Pego off a cliff to his death! Second time around after returning to get more repellent etc we are more successful but it takes an age flying the bee to the base only to discover when we are back that he could have moved it into his inventory – we really haven’t covered ourselves in glory so far today. So, weve a pair of Beetles and a Bee, my tribemate is very happy but I’m not - where is my Sabre! Ok, Ok, he says and he gets on his attack Argy and we fly over to half burnt island. We fly around a few times scanning on ongoing battles between Rexes, Scorpions, Sabres and Argys. After 20 mins we see a 145 male with nice dark colours – ‘he looks a winner’ I say and we drop down to clear the area. My tribemate clears out everything on his Argy and tells me I’m free to do the deed. I drop down, and my tribemate bola’s the beast and I lay a couple of arrows into him using my longbow. ‘NO!’ the beast drops dead and I clench my fists as I realise I hadn’t switched arrows. The pressure of taming a best after a while away from ARK obviously got to me – n00b status already gained. After apologising to my tribemate we spent another hr searching for a high lvl Sabre – nothing. I feel gutted, not only did we not get a good Sabre, I wasted about an hr and half of my tribemates time when he could have been progressing with the base – but at least we got him a pair of Beetles and a Bee.
  12. Hi all, its been a while... basically, just because I needed a break. So yesterday, I logged into Ark for the first time in just over a month. I knew my tribemate had been logging in to feed everything so I decided to help out and fill our troughs up. Everything seemed fine, a few dinos in random places and nothing in tribemanager concerned me. I flew down from our cliff to the beach to jump on one of the spinos so I could harvest a ton of meat. Went out and harvested enough for all my troughs, and flew back up with some meat for the smaller carnos in the huts on the cliff, the wolves, bears and sabres. I then jumped on a bear to clear out some stuck Trikes but all my dinos went ape - including all the fliers - Quetz, Pteras etc. I thought nothing of it, whistelled them all to stop and went out to get some berries on my bear. ABout 3 minutes later - away from the base I get the message 'Xeonai lvl 265 Pteranadon was killed by a 125 Raptor'. WHaaaaatt?! Where and how. I rush back and see no sign of it or the body of my prized tame. Only 2 months ago I was taming all 150s to find one with a nice stam and melee bird. It took me ages to find one with 800 post tame - I was so proud of her, she was rocking about 1400 up until yesterday where I wish I hadnt logged in now. Sulking... will probably be another 4 weeks until I log in now.
  13. if you are not after a high lvl one, then they spawn at the cave entrance in the Jungles South Cave on the Center map. Highest lvl I have come across in there is a 70, but mainly they range between 15-40. They respawn pretty quickly too. Its the cave where you get the Artefact of the Immune. Good luck
  14. I looked at my Steam app to see which of my tribemates were on and I could see none - I was still unwell so went to bed early Tonight, I am determined to log in, even if it is just to fill a trough or two with berries and meat My aim will be to track down a 145/150 Ptera though as I want to find a bird with crazy Stamina
  15. I was ill so in turn my character was obviously ill. Will pop on later to see what my tribe have done in my absence, hoping they got the Plesi and finished the waterpen to put it in. Other than that I will continue looking for 145-150 Pteras
  16. Yes, it will be 'that' plan that wont get done. It happens to me all the time... 'what was I doing again?'
  17. I had a good night. The wife was out with my child so I logged on early. My tribe had inherited a new 230 Spino last night so for the 3 of us who all play the most, we can run around on 230+ Spinos which is fairly decent. The previous night when I was asleep, Hank decided to breed the bears again for some guys in another tribe as a thankyou for letting us claim a Theri as we hadn't got one yet. They were waiting at the base when 'pop' a baby blue Bear came out. They claimed it and took it back to their base. Oh well, maybe we will get a mutation next time - still waiting patiently. Our 4 bears were all bred out so we gave them a rest and decided to see what out black sabre and orange stripey sabre came out as. I didnt know there pre-tame levels as we claimed them both but they wouldnt be very high I can assure you as they are 230 and 140 now. We waited to see if we had any luck and after waiting patiently - TWINS! Just like we had with our first bred bears, we had a pair of twins, no mutations and we orange/black stripes but they were sooo cute. Melee stats were 240% so I think that we might keep them actually. This weekend I think we will go and try and tame a 140-150 and see if we can get some good stats to breed. TM popped on again just as I was logging off (unless I play past midnight I dont get to play with him much through the week) He told me he bred his 150 monkeys last night - he does this wind me up, spending hrs taming his stupid monkey army. His little Mojo monkey currently has 600 melee - yes, 600% melee. Worthless I know! Weve decided that this weekend we will probably try for a third cave that we havent done yet - he called it the Ice Cave and I think its in Jungles north - wish us luck! We also need a high lvl, decent stat male Spino as our 3 are all females. So Spino/Cat taming here we come. So, the evening went well, weve a pair of new cats and tonight I think we might be able to breed the bears again hoping for a colour mutation. Ill keep you updated!
  18. Last night was a busy evening. I had plans you see, but as usual they didn’t progress quite as I had planned. We have a new member of the tribe, very limited experience (even less than me) and he has decided to branch out and make his own little cliff base (similar to ours but on a much smaller scale). From the starter dinos we have claimed from players who have quit; I decided to give them over to our new kid on the block. I took over a train consisting of a 44 Dode, 61 Bear, 121 Argy and 41 Raptor. Nothing great but it gives him a little assistance in gaining the resources for him to build. We helped him tame his first Stego and he built a pen below his cliff for his new friends. Ill try and keep the rest as short as I can… I flew back from new kids base and came across a 150 Tappy and I know the Tribemaster loves these (we have 2 but our best was a 100 I think). I get Hank my tribebuddy and we go up on our Tappy to try and bola the 150. At first we spook the fellah but after a few minutes of flying around, we get into position, ready for the master throw – and what a throw it was. Hank bola’d our own bird! It appears as though I’m floating to the cliffs below me, but in fact I’m hurtling towards my death at a pace akin to a Pastor Maldonado driving an F1 car. I die… its no big deal. New kid comes and collects me using his Argy – he even picks me up first time which Im impressed with, the kid is learning fast. I decide that the 150 Tappy is out of my taming skills just now, and say to the guys Ill take them on a cave run instead. New kid on his 41 Raptor and Hank and I on our 250+ bred bears – I love my bear (probably said that before but I really do). We run over towards the cave and pass a tamed Their which is up for grabs in just over an hr - we don’t own one so we make it our mission to get in and out of the cave and back to claim this within the hr. A mego is lying asleep at the entrance of the cave so I run in and Hank and I spill the first amount of cave blood. A lvl 90 Mego stands no chance against a bear with 5k hp and 595% melee. New kid follows cautiously but I explain that from here he will be ok. We take out everything in the cave; scorpions, spiders, centipedes. Lazarus powder time, but Ive only brought 2 so Hank and I drop down into the depths to claim the artifact. The 3 loot drops were nothing special but its one of the low lvl caves so I don’t expect to get anything decent to be honest but it was nice to take these guys through their first cave run. On the way back we come across a 125 lvl Alpha Raptor and new kid goes rushing in… Hank and I manage to get the aggro from it after new kid takes his first hit and is left with little hp – lesson learned here I think J 36 Prime meat in my bag and we head back to base to cook it all up. I had read earlier about a tribe quitting the server but had initially thought that all decent items/dinos would have already been claimed. We claimed the Theri (only a 101) on the way back seemed happy with the days work. Then I see a tamed but riderless 230 Spino rampaging through the woodland near to our base. I fly over and ask if anyone in global chat had lost their Spino. Apparently this was what the global chat had been talking about. Just above the Spino on the ridge above is another stationery Spino so I fly up and have a little look – a 265!! Now weve already tamed 2 Spinos a 135 and 150 but as there are 4 main active players in our tribe and now the new kid, a new pair wouldn’t go amiss. I ask in global if anyone has first claim on these and one guy stated he was interested. Now I know I wont be online in the 4hrs that this will become available and my tribemates didn’t message me this morning so I don’t know whether or not we got anything as there was a Dimetrodon that we wanted too. So last night was good, I felt I helped our new kid, and we got rid of some of our lesser dinos as we are really looking to tame our own now so we know what stats they had for the breeding programme. Tribemaster logged in just before I headed off, explained he needed to go and claim a few dinos and left him to it.
  19. Always build some perimeter of sorts in Stone/Brick/Metal Thatch/Wood wont last and as youve experienced, one random spawn can cause a lot of pain. If thsi was SP, you maybe ok but otherwise you are a prime target for greifers too I have actually had 2 nights off ARK; I know, how could I do it you ask! Wife is in recovery after her operation and looking after a 4 yr old, house cleaning, work, visiting my wife etc, I just havent had the energy to log on and play for a few hrs. I am logging in tonight and my Tribemaster has left me steam messages about what he has been up to. Apparently our beachfront dino pen has been extended to allow for our recent tames 145 bronto so I look forward to seeing that later tonight. On the Center, what cave is easy to complete other than the Artifact of the Immune or Cunning as Ive done those religiously for a while now. Thanks story writers
  20. Sounds like a good weekend for you Cymas. I had a good one too - finally. As many of you may have heard, I had been looking for a 150 Ptera to start a new breeding line and see if the new Pteras are better than the pre-nerf Pteras. I left the base on Friday night to go scouting on my lvl 248 Ptera called Mwahahaa (she was a 145) and has 1072 Stamina so I can pretty much sprint most places without too many stops. I spent about 30 mins flying around the center map looking for a 150 - nothing. I returned to my base and was going to take my bear out for some meat and berries and then low and behold - a 150 Male Ptera flying right above my pen! Pew Pew! Bola flew and arrows directly after - somehow the 2 headshots didnt work and ended up having to hit it a 3rd time. Kibble tamed and came out as +73 (223). I was fairly happy with this, stats were ok, HP was above average as was the melee. I will level him up and see what I think of him. Ive decided that I will keep looking for another 145/150 until I find a high level Stam bird as I'd really like to get one with 1200+, so thats my weeks plan. I then completed my res run on my bear - she is now 250 and we came across a 105 Alpha raptor by the base. Hmmm, Im confident I say to myself. Now, Ive history with this bear, she is my first bred bear and is named after my 4yr old daughter so she means a lot to me. She has 5k hp and 530% melee so she can usually take care of herself but I have heard many people asy 'stay away from Alphas, dont solo them'. 'Here we go', I said to myself and to my screen as if Emily could hear me. The fight lasted possibly 20 seconds and 36 prime meat was my reward - off back to the primitive grill and to cook it all up. i continued my res run and filled my troughs, collected some claystone, flint and metal. I made sparkpowder, narcs, brick walls - basically everything the tribe builder would need. We all have roles in our tribe. Tribemaster is the builder, I collect everything for everyone (I enjoy it, and the freedom). I get to place all artifacts and am OCD about our dinos and where they go. Aga is the support player and helps us all with everything. Then an old friend logs into Teamspeak and brings 2 new friends who have recently bought ARK. Tribemaster agrees to allow then to join us so we give them a pair of 223 Pteras, some mats and send them round the corner to build their own base. Now, they are part of our tribe so we make a few changes to the tribe levels to protect ourselves a bit - weve spent months building Cliff City and we explained our reservations - and they were fine with this. We then spent an hr showing them the basics and helped them tame their first dino - a Stego, just for berries. They ahve both said that they want to start slow and small which is good as it would be annoying and ruin their gameplay if they got everything too easily. So we left them to it. TM and I then decide we should take advantage of the 1.5x tame boost for the weekend and decide that maybe a Stego would be good for us too - for eggs and kibble - so we spot a lvl 15 on the beach below our cliff base (right next to our pen) and get to work. Just as we down it, we a 145 Female Bronto! Now we have a Male but have been wanting a female for weeks. Middle of a Stego tame, we half abandon it, go and grab some more arrows, narcs, and I start cooking up the kibble. Roughly 80 shots off the back of our Tappy, but she finally fell. TM has got the metal spikes and starts laying them round her. At this point, Ive totally forgotten about the Stego but TM says its actually doing fine - bonus. I get the kibble made and put them in her inventory whilst TM says he will be back in 5 so asks me to protect her. Now, this is the issue. I usually help tame, but TM does all the 'off the dino' combat stuff. Its getting dark, Im standing there at the entrance of the metal spikes with my Pike - a Troodon I managed to kill it but was looking for its fellow gangmembers and much to my relief there werent any. I wiped the sweat from my brow and then my TM returned. Oh, how I hate looking after a dino mid tame. 20 mins later and we successfully tame the Bronto, and the Stego. Im tired now, its late, we've new Tribe additions in 3 dinos but 2 new players. The Tribe is now up to 6 but its generally TM and I who are on everyday with at least an ave of 2hrs a day on there. All in all, it was good weekend, especially last night where we got the two new Dinos.
  21. My stories are getting less and less fruitful. I logged in solo again last night as no sign of any of my my 4 tribemates. I got my taming gear and went out for a flight - saw no 150 Pteras. I flew around the Center for around 45 mins and nothing. My current 145 pre tame bird levelled up to 235 just by flying round which was quite nice. I returned to base and jumped on Marcus Aurelius (my 240 Rex) and grinded out some food. Accidentally wrecked a 150 Trike which would have actually been a nice tame and proceeded to fill up troughs. Jumped back on my bird and went looking for my elusive 150 tame. Came across a 150 Ptera (player) and asked if he had seen any 150 Pteras. He hadnt, and was out looking for a 150 Trike for a Tribemate of his. I guiltily explained of my brief encounter of one whilst on my Rex. I felt bad so went off in search of a Trike and said I'd let him know in Server chat. Spent the next 45 mins flying round for a 150 Trike - nothing. I am seeing a pattern here... if anyone wants a 150 tame of any sort, don't ask me to find one for you as they go into hiding and will only return when I am not online. One of my goals last night was to go to the JM cave (Immune artifact) and find some guantlet bps as they are the ones we are sadly lacking in any quality; but failed to do this in the 3 hrs I was on. Tonight I wont be in with any luck as my wife is having major surgery tomorrow so I will be up at 5am to take her to a hospital far far away... oh how selfish she is! Hopefully Ill have luck on Saturday night and come back with a good story to tell on Monday. Until then... save up your stories
  22. Thanks Maze, I knew it was around 70. She was our Tribes first bred animals and we got a pair of 203's. Both Bears are 245 now, 5k hp and 525% melee which seems to work really well. Will attempt to breed again at some point to see if we can score even higher. I've been thinking a lot today about my plans for tonight. I dont think Ill have a long session so I will possibly run over to the MJ cave on the Centre and allow my Bear to annihilate anything that moves.
  23. After the frustration of the other night and forgetting how to tame I went on the look for my 145/150 Ptera. I had my arrows with me this time, narcs, kibble and bola. I spent a good hour flying around in the near vicinity of my base - nothing. I saw a lvl 120 but that was no help to anyone and my question to research whether the pre-nerf bird are better than new tames is still not happening. So, I filled my troughs, went and collected Metal - firstly I went with a Dode before realising I needed my Anky (only a 184 so really need to replace it soon) but came back and made about 1.5k ingots. I took my bear on a little killing spree and lvlled her up to 245 (she was born as a 203 so not sure how many levels she has left). I then took my new Ptera out and lvlled her to 235 before I decided to make some caving armour and added some colour. Ive my MC/EPIC Iron gear which Ive gone Red/Black - this is my pretty gear but I just wanted some black Iron gear that i dont mind losing if I die. I'd been on about 3 hrs by now and had lost interest without any of my tribemates on to have some fun with. The server chat is ok, and they reply to me but they seem mainly to keep themselves to their own little groups. Oh well, perhaps Ill have some better luck tonight when I get home.
  24. I had a noob moment yesterday. I was tired, that was my excuse. I decided to tame another 145 Ptera to continue my research into Old v New Pteras and which are better. Now, I am lvl 74 but am still very much new to this tamin lark as ive levelled up mainly by killing things with my bear and my last Ptera. All our tames generally come when my tribe partner and I have done them together or we have claimed from timed out bases. I saw this 145 Ptera and as usual, no special colourings (never seem to when they are high level). I had 5 bolas, 100 narcs and Dodo Kibble. I threw the bola and saw them wrap around the bird. Then I threw another, nothing happened, and then another, nothing happened. I walked up to it, removed the bola from the Ptera and it flew away and left me somewhat perplexed. For the next 30 mins, I flew around looking for another and not one in sight. An hour later my tribemate logged on and instantly said - oh, there is a 145 Ptera by our base. I looked up and recognised it. Then explained that it might be bugged and proceeded to tell my tale. Tribemate burst into laughter over Teamspeak, 'what's wrong?' I asked. He kindly reminded me to shoot it with tranq arrows - numpty! I was tired and had looked on the dodo calc which another post kindly pointed to and for some reason it was discussing how many bolas I needed for a Ptera. I guess it totally made me forget about tranq'ing the bleeding bird. By then it was too late, I was tired and my bed was calling me. Tonight however, that bird (or if there is a 150) is MIIIIINE!
  25. Cymas, can I also say how much I enjoy reading your replies. I try to keep my daily activities less wholesome but am feeling I need to add a little more to mine now Back on topic - Ive a Sabre too, I think around 241 and I was struggling for a name so I called him Mr Stripes (orange with black stripes), its always hard to name all your dinos but I repeatedly try.
