  1. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, Recently our channel has reached 200 subscribers so first of all we would like to thank everyone for all your support on our videos. As requested in the comment section, we are going to take a closer look at Wyverns The Wyvern is a legendary flying creature that has often been confused with a dragon due to the similarities in appearance between them, the key distinction however is that a Wyvern only has two legs, whereas a dragon has four. There are 4 different variations of Wyverns, each with a unique pattern of spikes and fins covering it from head to tail Each type also possesses a different breath attack Fire Wyverns use a short range fire breath which leaves a damage over time effect for 10 seconds on any creature they hit, burning away 20% of the maximum health of that creature. The fire Wyvern is also the only variation that can come in an Alpha form. An Alpha Wyvern is a bigger and stronger version of the normal Fire Wyvern Lightning Wyverns use a concentrated beam of lightning against their targets, this lightening beam can do a devastating amount of damage at a decent range. The Shock coming from this attack will temporarily immobilize a survivor or mount, making melee attacks against a Lightning Wyvern nearly impossible and very dangerous. Poison Wyverns shoot acidic projectiles like the Arthropluera. This projectile of poisonous gas ignores armor and will explode on impact leaving a toxic cloud which deals damage to survivors and their mount simultaneously for 5 seconds. Ice Wyverns use a short range ice breath which deals a decent amount of damage and also will significantly slow down a target's movement speed for a few seconds. This gives the ice Wyvern enough time to attack again making an escape nearly impossible even when on a fast flying mount like a Pteranodon. All 4 variations of Wyverns are highly territorial and aggressive carnivores they will defend their airspace and nests at all costs. Poison, fire and lightning Wyverns can be found in the dragon trench called the world scar on the west side of the scorched earth map and sometimes in mountainous areas, On ragnarok they can be found in the Wyvern trench in the north east region and among the rivers in the south west tropical region. Ice Wyverns can exclusively be found on Ragnarok, they inhabit the snow covered mountain ranges from the highlands al the way west to the green obelisk and back towards viking bay Killing a Wyvern can be a very challenging undertaking. Not only are Wyverns one of the fastest fliers in the game but their ranged attacks can also deal a massive amount of damage, they do however have a rather large turning radius. This makes attacking it with an Argentavis or Griffin that is upgraded in health, stamina and melee possible as long as you can stay close enough to keep out turning it. Survivors that don't want to risk losing their mount or don't have access to a decent flier can also make use of heavy ranged weapons like homing missiles, ballistas or auto turrets. This can be very effective due to the fact that Wyverns are vulnerable to the same ranged damage modifiers as all other flying creatures. When killed a Wyvern can be harvested for hide, raw prime meat, sulfur and a Wyvern talon. Talons from fire, poison and lightning Wyverns are needed in order to be able to summon the Manticore boss in Scorched Earth on all difficulties. At this moment the Ice Wyvren does not drop a talon, this however might change in a future patch or update Wyverns can not be tamed in the wild. In order to get a Wyvern, a survivor must steal a fertilized Wyvern egg from a nest. Stealing an egg is however very dangerous due to the fact that Wyverns are very territorial and protective, they will attack and chase anything that comes to close. In order to get close to a nest a survivor will have to kill or lure away the Wyverns. The safest way to do this is with a kill box containing a generator and at least 2 auto turrets, set to high range and attack wild creatures. This will take care of a group of Wyverns in a few seconds. Once the Wyverns are dead or lured away a survivor can check the nests and collect the fertilized eggs without any risk. Unlike other creatures in the game Wyverns have 38 levels in the wild, giving eggs a maximum level of 190 when a server is set to the maximum difficulty Wyvren Eggs require a lot of heat to incubate properly This can be done with a minimum of 14 campfires or at least 15 air conditioners depending on the location. Once the egg is hatched the Wyvern baby can not be fed raw meat like other carnivores, they require Wyvern Milk as food and may even ask for it while imprinting. Wyvern milk gives 1200 food to a baby Wyvern and will keep it fed for a little more than 3 hours. Keep in mind that Wyvern milk is the only food a Wyvern will eat before it reaches adulthood. 5 Wyvern Milk can be collected from the inventory of a knocked out a female Wyvern. It is possible to trap a female Wyvern in a large closed of pen before tranquilizing it, this can make collecting milk a lot easier due to the fact that female Wyverns generate milk over time. A trapped female Wyvern can be knocked out every hour to collect an additional 5 milk. Keep in mind that a Wyverns torpor depletes very fast, it is therefor recommended that a survivor collects the milk as soon as possible. Killing an Alpha Wyvern will reward a survivor with 50 Wyvern Milk. The spoil timer on milk can be increased by storing it in a preserving bin. Wyvern milk can not be stored in a Refrigerator It's also possible to raise a baby Wyvern without milk, by using a Daeodon and stimulant. Not feeding the baby milk will drop its food to 0, this will cause the baby's health to drop and its torpor to rise. A Daeodon set to passive healing will restore or keep up the baby's health while the gained torpor can be countered by force feeding the baby stimulant or stimberries. Survivors will have to keep in mind that a Daeodon set to passive healing will use an enormous amount of food. Raised Wyverns do not require a saddle in order to be ridden. A raised Wyvern has 2 main attacks. Its signature breath attack can be executed by pressing the left trigger on your controller, this attack will however rapidly drain the stamina of the Wyvern and can damage tribe-mates and tamed creatures.Wyverns can also bite their opponents by pressing the right trigger on your controller. Both main attacks can be used by a Wyvern when on the ground or when airborne. Wyverns are also capable of carrying small and medium sized creatures. This can be done by pressing the right joystick on your controller while flying or hovering over a creature. When grounded a Wyvern can use its wings to perform a knock back, by pressing the right joystick on your controller. When using the knock back near a tree the Wyvern will collect thatch and small amounts of wood, when performed near a Joshua tree on scorched earth and in the future on Ragnarok a Wyvern will also collect cactus sap. A raised Wyvern can also be turned into a turret in its behavior options in the radial menu, this will make the Wyvern use it's signature breath attack to anything that comes into it's line of sight when its stance is set to aggressive. Keep in mind that this will only work on wild creatures in pve. In my opinion the Wyvern has its weaknesses however they are extremely fun to ride Wyverns are very powerful mounts on pve, their high movement speed and decent health will allow you to kill almost any other wild creature with ease. On pvp however there is hardly any use for a Wyvern because they are very vulnerable to any type of ranged weapons. The fact that a Wyverns breath attack uses a large portion of its already low stamina and its large turning radius make it a mount that is hardly suitable for aerial combat. Aiming a Wyverns breath attack can be very challenging for inexperienced riders and may require some practice at first. All variations of the Wyverns breath attack can also harm allies in both pvp and pve, survivors will have to keep an eye on their tribe mates and tames when using the Wyvern in combat to prevent their accidental deaths. When set to turret mode a Wyvern is not much of a defense due to the fact that their aim currently only hits the ground right in front of them, this may require some attention from the devs. That concludes our spotlight on Wyverns.

  2. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Otter The Otter is a very small mammal with an appearance that shows great resemblance to the modern day Otter. It has a narrow stretched body and a long tail that is covered in a thin but insulating layer of fur. Otters are mostly aquatic animals, they have short limbs that are equipped with powerful webbed feet to propel them trough the water. The Otter is a friendly creature that poses no threat to survivors or tames unless provoked. Otters can be extremely hard to spot due to their small size, they are mostly found in shallow parts of the rivers in the south east region and in the rivers surrounding the Islands redwoods. The Otter has a very low health and can be killed fairly easy by using any melee or ranged weapon. When killed the Otter can be harvested for raw meat, hide and pelt Survivors will have to keep in mind that the area the Otter lives in is also the home of predators like the Baryonyx and Piranha, This can make taming an Otter in the wild extremely dangerous, it is therefor recommended to make use of a taming pen. Due to the Otters small size it can be picked up by all fliers and dropped in a taming pen on a location of choice. Players that don't have access to a flier or play pve can also make the Otter follow you into a pen by punching it once. Keep in mind that the Otter has low health so it is not recommended to use any weapons. Because of its small size the Otter will fit through a normal door frame, make sure to close the door as soon as it is in the pen. The Otter can only be tamed passively in a manner similar to the Hesperornis. Fish must be killed, and their corpses dragged to the otter. While still holding the fish, press the y button on your controller to feed the fish to the otter. Feeding the Otter larger fish can be somewhat tricky due to game mechanics, A taming pen situated in water might prove very useful in order to approach the Otter without the dragged fish blocking the feeding option Larger fish, and fish killed by the Ichthyornis, provide a higher taming percentage per fish Once tamed an Otter can be equipped with a hat and carried on a survivors shoulder. While carrying an Otter it will provide a survivor with extra insulation. Leveling the Otter's Melee Damage increases the amount of insulation provided, hypothermic insulation or protection against the cold is about 75 to 82% of the Otters melee damage while hyperthermic insulation or protection against heat is about 34 to 38%. This will allow survivors to travel to colder regions that otherwise would be hard to reach without freezing. Otters can also be used to collect small amounts of silica pearls and sometimes even black pearls from fish that they kill Hold the left bumper and press up on the d-pad while looking at a fish to make the Otter attack it. It is possible to make use of ranged weapons when cross hairs are enabled on a server for better targeting. Survivors will have to keep in mind that the Otter uses oxygen. Using the Otter to hunt fish in area's with large fish spawns or area's with obstacles that prevent it from surfacing can cause the Otter to drown. In my opinion the Otter is a very useful companion for starting survivors. It's ability to gather silica and even black pearls can be of great value for survivors that don't have access to aquatic mounts. The Otters insulation bonus can be very helpful in area's on the Island where a survivor would normally freeze, however when playing on Ragnarok temperatures can be so extreme that survivors will still freeze even when carrying an otter with high melee damage. Attacking larger groups of Piranhas or Sabertooth salmons is not advised due to the Otters low health. That concludes our spotlight on the Otter.

  3. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Woolly Rhino The Woolly Rhino is a large sized mammal with an appearance and shape that shows a close resemblance to its modern day descendant the rhinoceros. It has a sturdy body covered in a thick layer of fur and a skull that is equipped with two intimidating horns. The Woolly Rhino is a friendly herbivore that tends to live in small groups however when attacked the Woolly Rhino can be a devastating opponent Woolly Rhino's can be found grazing in the islands snow biome and the cold area around it. Killing a Woolly Rhino can be a very dangerous undertaking, not only is the rhino a very powerful opponent but the area it lives in can be very unforgiving due to the temperature and other creatures in the area like the Yutyrannus and Direwolf. When under attack a Woolly Rhino will start charging towards its opponent. If a Rhino gets enough room to charge it will build up momentum to deliver a powerful blow that can kill even the largest animals in one hit. Survivors are therefor advised to use ranged weapons from higher ground or a strong and maneuverable mount that can stay clear from its devastating charges. It is also possible to stop a Woolly rhino in its tracks with a chain bola or a large bear trap however survivors will have to keep in mind that the Woolly Rhino's horns can still do considerable damage even when trapped. When killed a Woolly Rhino can be harvested for raw meat, hide, keratin, fur and Woolly Rhino horns. Woolly Rhino horns can be used as an ingredient to craft broth of enlightenment and lesser antidote. A Woolly Rhino can be stopped in its tracks by a large bear trap or a chain bola, however this is only for a short period of time as it will break free before it can be knocked out. It is also possible to pick up a Woolly Rhino with a Quetzal and drop it in a taming pen on a location of choice. Survivors that don't have access to a Quetzal or play on pve can use Giant bee Honey to lure a Woolly Rhino into a taming pen. Keep in mind that the Woolly Rhino is a large creature and will only fit trough a dinosaur gateway when it is not equipped with a dinosaur gate. Survivors can use ramps or leave the taming pen open on one side and close it off when the rhino is inside the pen. It is best to build a taming pen out of stone due to the high damage output of the Woolly Rhino. When trapped the Woolly Rhino can be knocked out fairly easy with tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts A Woolly Rhino being a herbivore can be tamed with vegetables and berries however it prefers Terror Bird kibble to speed up the taming process. Only a small amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin is needed to keep a Rhino unconscious during the tame. A saddle to ride the Woolly Rhino can be crafted in the smithy when a survivor reaches level 53 this saddle will allow survivors to make full use of their weapons while mounted on the Rhino. Woolly Rhino's have a decent carry weight and can harvest large amounts of thatch and small amounts of wood by pressing the right trigger on your controller when near a tree, they also gather decent amounts of berries when the same attack is used on bushes. The Woolly Rhino is often ignored by survivors due to their rather large turning radius and the fact that they can get stuck on even the smallest rock they can however knock down trees while running without even slowing down. Despite being a herbivore the Woolly Rhino is well equipped for a fight, it has a decent health and high base damage that combined with its large knock back can already be deadly for most creatures. When running a Rhino will gain momentum indicated by a charge meter. A fully charged Rhino can do up to 12,5 times it's normal damage by pressing the right trigger on your controller when running into an opponent. In my opinion the Woolly rhino is an extremely useful mount in both on pve and pvp. Their high damage output when fully charged can be devastating for even the largest predators. A Woolly Rhino comes equipped with a decent carry weight and health, survivors are however advised to upgrade stamina in order to do multiple charge attacks without resting. Because the Woolly Rhino is a herbivore it might be useful to bring sweet vegetable cakes in order to keep up the rhino's health when attacking large predators. That concludes our spotlight on the Woolly Rhino. Don't forget to leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and comment to tell us which creature you would like to see in the next episode.

    hold the A button on your controller while walking against a cliff or wall
  5. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Moschops. The Moschops is a small to medium size omnivore that in a way resembles a modern day komodo dragon. It has a wide stance like a pittbull with fat upper body and a relative short tail. The Moschops has a short thick neck with a head that is small compared to its body. A Moschops is a friendly creature that poses no threat to survivors or other creatures, they are extremely cowardly and will flee at any sign of a fight. Survivors can find the Moschops almost anywhere on the island with the exception of the snow biome, mountain areas and both carno and herbivore island. Killing a Moschops is not as easy as it seems as they will instantly flee when attacked. Chasing them down can be dangerous due to predators roaming the area. It is however possible to use a bola or large bear trap to stop the Moschops from fleeing, you can then use a weapon of choice to kill it. When killed a Moschops can be harvested for hide and meat. The Moschops can only be tamed passively. It is possible to tame a Moschops in an uncontrolled environment however this can be difficult due to its food wishes and predators that might be in the area. If a Moschops gets attacked or is scared you won't be able to feed it, in order to resume the tame a Moschops needs to be in a calm state. The Moschops can be picked up by an Argentavis or Quetzel and dropped in a taming pen on a location of choice. If you don't have access to a flier or play on pve u can trap the Moschops with a bola or bear trap and build a simple taming pen with fence foundations and door frames to keep it from wandering off. A storage box, preserving bin, fridge or even an animals inventory filled with all food types the Moschops might ask for during the tame will be of great value because many of these resources can spoil. When approached the Moschops will randomly ask for one of the following types of food. Mejoberry, Tintoberry, Rare Flowers, Rare Mushrooms, Giant Bee Honey, Cooked Lamb Chop, Cooked Prime Meat, Cooked Prime Fish Meat, Prime Meat Jerky or Raw Prime Fish Meat. Put the food that the Moschops desires in the last slot of your hotbar and press the y button on you're controller to feed it. When tamed a Moschops can be trained to harvest a larger amount of a specific item. Every time your Moschops levels up you can add a point to increase the harvested amount of Sap, raw prime meat, raw prime fish meat, rare flowers, rare mushrooms, leech blood or organic polymer in the radial menu under view harvesting levels. The more points you put in to a certain item the higher the harvested amount of that resource you will get. keep in mind that the animal harvested by the Moschops needs to drop the wanted resource in order to collect it The Moschops is a cowardly creature by nature. It will even flee when ordered to attack a dodo. Because of this behavior the Moschops harvest ability can only be used on animal corpses. Hold the left bumper and press up on the d-pad of your controller when looking at a corpse to make your Moschops harvest it. The same controls can be used to make your Moschops harvest rare flowers when looking at a bush in the swamp or snow biome and mushrooms from a mangrove tree in the swamp. Sap can only be harvested from Joshua tree's on scorched earth and possibly ragnarok in the future. A Moschops can also gather rare flowers and mushrooms on its own, when set to wander in an area that has the appropriate bushes or trees. Keep in mind that these areas can be very dangerous, it is therefor best to fence of the area before setting the Moschops to wander. A Moschops will also collect small amounts of berries, fiber, thatch and wood when harvesting trees or bushes In my opinion the Moschops has no great value in pve or pvp. It's ability to be trained in harvesting certain items can be usefull but is a time consuming process due to the amount of upgrading that is needed to see a noticeable increase in harvested amounts. It's cowardly nature, difficult taming process and the time spend leveling up the Moschops make it that most tribes prefer other creatures like the Ichtyornis or Direwolf to collect the same resources faster and more efficiently. That concludes our spotlight on the Moschops don't forget to comment, leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and we will see you in the next episode where we will take a closer look at the Woolly Rhino
  6. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Equus The Equus is a medium sized herbivore that looks very similar to a modern day horse, They have long manes and Zebra like stripes. An Equus usually lives in small groups and poses no threat to survivors, they are fairly skittish and generally flee upon contact or when under attack. The Equus can be found grazing on or near the islands riverbanks. The Unicorn is a variant of the Equus and is distinguished by its white color and single spiraling horn on its forehead. Unicorns however are extremely rare and according to the devs only one Unicorn, wild or tamed exists on a server at a time. This makes the use of cross server transfers necessary to breed Unicorns. Due to the fact that a Unicorn can only breed with another Unicorn There are however player reports of multiple Unicorn spawns on a server without the use of cross server transfers. An Equus will generally flee upon contact, it is therefor best to use ranged weapons to kill them. It is also possible to stop an Equus in its tracks by using a bear trap or bola's. When killed an Equus or Unicorn can be harvested for meat, hide and pelt. Taming an Equus or Unicorn is different then other passive tames. Not only does it need to be fed, it needs to be ridden as well. An Equus can be tamed with Troodon kibble, rockarrot, other vegetables, sweet vegetable cake and berries In order to start taming the Equus or Unicorn place the prefered food in the last slot of your hotbar and approach the Equus. Survivors can make use of a ghillie suit to keep a low profile however this is not necessary. Keep in mind that an Equus is only tamable when it's calm and not under attack, clearing out the area before taming might prove useful in this situation. When near the Equus press the y button on your controller to feed it and immediately press the y button again to mount the Equus before it has a chance to flee. The Equus will start running with you on it's back and indicate when it is hungry again by bucking. If you don't feed the Equus again in time it will throw you off it's back and flee. This will cause taming progression and efficiency to drop rapidly. Due to the unpredictable behavior of the Equus during the tame it might prove useful to bring a tribe member or a tame to keep predators away. It is also possible to pick up an Equus with a Quetzal and drop it in a large enough taming pen to keep it safe from predators. Survivors that don't have access to a Quetzal or play pve can also use giant bee honey to lure the Equus to a location of choice. A tamed Equus or Unicorn does not have to be equipped with a saddle to be ridden. There is however a saddle that can be crafted in the smithy when a survivor reaches level 20. This saddle can be used as a mortar and pestle and allows players to craft a lasso. The Lasso can be used to drag around most small and medium sized creatures like the Pteranodon and Argentavis, It can also be used to drag unconscious creatures including the quetzal to a safer location. A lasso can also be used to pick up dropped items and loot bags from a distance by pulling them towards the rider Survivors will have to keep in mind that a lasso can only be used while riding an Equus or unicorn A tamed Equus can be used to gather small amounts of berries by pressing the right trigger on your controller when near a bush. It's carry weight is decent when tamed but can quickly be upgraded in order to make it a real pack mule. The Equus will reduce the inventory weight of cementing pasting by 80% while chitin, keratin and stone are reduced by 50 % On scorched earth the weight of cactus sap, clay and sand is also reduced by 80%. The Equus is a creature that has a decent running speed and a great stamina, they can also jump over obstacles by pressing the a button on your controller even while running. It is also possible to use the Equus to knock out creatures by pressing the left trigger on your controller. This so called buck kick inflicts damage and a decent amount of torpor in a relative short time. When used multiple times on creatures with low health it will almost certainly kill them. In my opinion the Equus is a great tame for starting and more advanced tribes due to its speed and stamina. The fact that it's saddle acts as a mobile mortar and pestle can be very useful to grind materials on farming runs with other creatures like a Doedicurus. Most tribes replace their regular mortar and pestle that has a limited inventory for an Equus with a large carry weight. The use of the lasso is underestimated by most but can in fact be very helpful to drag even an unconscious Quetzal that has landed in water to safety. That concludes our spotlight on the Equus don't forget to comment, leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and we will see you in the next episode where we will take a closer look at the Moschops
  7. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Castoroides The Castoroides is a medium sized mammal that looks very similar to the modern day beaver Its has a flat tail for swimming and a body covered in waterproof fur, its head has powerful jaws with chisel shaped teeth that seem perfect to chop down trees. The Castoroides appears to live in small groups and build giant beaver dams near or in water, Beaver dams can contain wood, cementing paste, rare flowers, rare mushrooms, and silica pearls. Survivors will have to keep in mind that Giant beavers dam do not re-fill, they have to be emptied or destroyed before the Castoroides can build a new one. Like most herbivores the Castoroides is not aggressive unless provoked or when it's dam is disturbed. Giant beavers can be found near or in the Islands rivers and ponds. A Castoroides can be killed relatively easy with a decent mount or the use of bola's. It is also possible to walk backwards to avoid damage and kill it with a weapon of choice, however they will eventually catch up to you. The most important thing is not go in the water with an aggressive Giant Beaver. When killed a Castoroides can be harvested for raw meat, hide and pelt The Castoroides can be picked up by an Argentavis or Quetzel and dropped in a taming pen on a location of choice. If you don't have access to a flier or play on pve u can use bola's or a large bear trap to stop a Castoroides in its tracks. Survivors will have to keep in mind that a giant Beavers torpor drops very fast, even when trying to knock one out. It is possible to tranq them with a small amount of tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts when fired in rapid succession. A Castoroides can be tamed with all kinds of Vegetables and berries however it prefers Gallimimus Kibble. A giant beavers torpor drops very fast, Survivors will need a large amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin to keep the Castoroides unconscious while taming. A saddle to ride the Castoroides can be crafted in the smithy when a player reaches level 61. This saddle can be used as a mobile crafting station where you can craft the same items as in a regular smithy. A tamed Castoroides can be used to farm wood, thatch and berries by pressing the right trigger on your controller when near a tree or bush. The Castoroides can gather wood very efficiently due to their weight reduction stone, wood, thatch and fiber placed in its inventory will weigh 50% less than normal. Survivors can take advantage of the wood-gathering ability of the Castoroides when it is set to wander in area with lots of trees, even when not equipped with a saddle. A tamed Castoroides does not make giant beaver dams. It is only possible to make a beaver dam farm whit wild beavers that are placed in an area surrounded by walls in their natural habitat. Giant beavers are actually fairly strong animals and can do a lot of damage both on land and in water, Even though they can defend themselves it is not recommended to use a giant beaver to attack large predators. A Castoroides is surprisingly fast in water and will not use any oxygen or stamina while swimming. In my opinion the Castoroides is a very versatile mount. The ability to use the Giant beaver as a mobile smithy combined with its weight reduction can be of great value to any survivor or tribe. Giant beaver dams are extremely useful to collect large amounts of cementing paste and wood Starting and medium advanced survivors can also hunt the Castoroides to gather fur without going to the snow biome The Castoroides ability to swim without the use of oxygen or stamina is very useful when gathering resources in the oceans surrounding the island. That concludes our spotlight on the Castoroides don't forget to comment, leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and we will see you in the next episode where we will take a closer look at the Equus
  8. video Tapejara + Tek Saddle Spotlight

    Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Tapejara The Tapejara is a medium sized pterosaur that looks somewhat simular to a Pteranodon They have a large peculiar crest on their head that acts as a sail and allows them to manoeuvre with extreme precision. Even though the Tapejara is not as common as the Pteranodon it can be found almost everywhere on the island with the exception of the snow biome, carno island and herbivore island Tapejara's are very skittish, and usually fly away when you approach them. A fast mount like a Pteranodon can be used to chase them down or kill them in the air. It is also possible to use a bola to ground the Tapejara, you can then use a weapon of choice to kill it When killed a Tapejara can be harvested for raw meat and hide There are several different strategies to tame a Tapejara. It is possible to lure a Tapejara into a taming pen or location of choice by consuming rare flowers, however this is not recommended due to the fact that the pheromones released by the rare flowers will make most nearby creatures aggressive towards your survivor and mount. Simply trapping a Tapejara with a bola is possible, however might prove difficult due to the distance needed in order to not scare away the Tapejara. Wearing a ghillie suit while attempting to bola a Tapejara allows you to get closer without it flying away. Survivors that don't have a Ghillie suit can also use Giant bee Honey to lure a Tapejara close enough to trap it with a bola. A trapped Tapejara can be knocked out with a relative small amount of tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts The Tapejara being a carnivore can be tamed with all kinds of meat and fish, however it prefers Allosaurus kibble, raw mutton, raw prime meat and raw prime fish meat. Only a small amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin is needed to uphold a Tapejara's torpor A saddle to ride the Tapejara can be crafted in the smithy when a survivor reaches level 55. The Tapejara can also wear a tek saddle, this engram is unlocked when the dragon boss is defeated on gamma difficulty and can be crafted in the tek replicator. This saddle provides more armor and a laser shooting helmet for the Tapejara. The laser can be activated by pressing the right joystick and fired by pressing the right trigger on your controller. The Tapejara's laser requires element to work, every element will allow you to shoot 25 times. On both of these saddles the Tapejara is capable of carrying a rider and two passengers one facing front and one facing back. Passengers can make use of hand held weapons during flight while the pilot can not. When the Tapejara is latched onto a surface, both the passengers and pilot can make full use of their weapons. The Tapejara can pick up survivors and small creatures like Dodo's and Compy's by pressing the left trigger on you're controller while flying directly above them. A Tapejara can latch on to vertical surfaces such as walls, cliffs and redwood trees by holding the a button on your controller. Survivors will have to keep in mind that The Tapejara currently cannot turn around while latched onto a surface. Flying backworths into the surface while holding the a button will make the Tapejara face down. The Tapejara's ability to hover or move in any direction make it a very usefull mount to place walls and ceilings in hard to reach places. This ability can also prove very usefull when collecting giant bee honey from bee hives. Pressing the right trigger on your controller will make the Tapejara bite your target. This attack is not extremely powerful however when combined with the Tapejara's maneuverability it can devastating for your opponent In my opinion the Tapejara is a very useful mount for both pve and pvp servers. It's ability to carry 2 passengers make the Tapejara an essential mount for taming purposes while it's maneuverability makes it a mount not to be underestimated. The Tapejara's tek saddle also gives it an important role in advanced aerial warfare That concludes our spotlight on the Tapejara don't forget to comment, leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and we will see you in the next episode where we will take a closer look at the Castoroides
  9. video Arthropluera Spotlight

    Thanks for commenting it did take some time to make this spotlight indeed. Yeah i know what you mean lol they do feel like aimbotters sometimes, moving around a lot does help with avoiding their spits. flaming arrows might work however are not available in the base game on the island.

    thanks
  11. video Arthropluera Spotlight

    Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Arthropluera The Arthropluera is a large invertebrate that somewhat looks like a modern day giant centipede. It's body has a total length of roughly 3 foundations and is composed of 30 jointed segments that are heavily armored with chitin plates. They are very aggressive hunters and are avoided by most creatures, even when outside a cave they are generally safe from all but the largest of predators. The Arthropluera is fairly common in most cave systems on the Island. The Lower south cave can be considered the easiest location to find an Arthropluera due to its location, relative small size and accessibility with a mount. Arthropluera's can be very tough opponents, their bite will inflict damage and torpor to both your survivor and mount. An Arthropluera can also spit its own blood towards a survivor even when mounted. This blood is highly-corrosive and acidic and reduces durability of any type of armor at 35x the normal rate. Hitting the Arthropluera with melee weapons will make its blood splatter on to your weapons and armor causing it to break almost instantly. Blood that hits your armor will also cause damage to your survivor. An Arthropluera's spit attack is very predictable and can be avoided when you are mobile enough, It is therefor recommended to use ranged weapons to kill the Arthropluera, shooting it in the head will give you a 2,5 x damage multiplier. When killed the Arthropleura can be harvested for chitin and raw meat. An Arthropleura can be picked up by an Argentavis, Quetzal, and Megalosaurus, however keep in mind that most servers don't allow fliers in caves, Luring The Arthropluera out of the cave is possible but will prove to be somewhat difficult due to the hostile environment inside a cave. Bear traps or bola's will not stop the Arthropluera in its tracks, they do however inflict some minor damage. Keep in mind that the Arthropluera can not gain torpor rendering the use of venomous creatures, tranquilizer weapons or traps useless When trying to tame an Arthropluera it is best to kill all other creatures in the area or to lure it to a safer location inside the cave. The Arthropleura can only be tamed passively, they are however aggressive creatures so survivors will have to apply Bug Repellent to keep them from attacking you on sight. Keep in mind that the Arthropluera will not be tameable if it is trying to attack another creature or is feeding on a corpse. The Arthropluera can be tamed with spoiled meat, raw meat and raw fish meat however it prefers Broth of Enlightenment which will speed up the taming process significantly Broth of Enlightenment is very expensive to make since it requires ingredients such as black pearls and death worm or woolly rhino horns. It can be consumed by players and provides a 150% experience boost for a duration of 20 minutes. To feed the Arthropluera place it's food in the last slot of your hotbar and press the Y button on your controller to feed it. Be careful not to touch the Arthropluera when feeding it, since it will become aggressive and attack even when using bug repellent. A saddle to ride the Arthropleura can be crafted in the smithy when a survivor reaches level 54. When riding an Arthropluera you can press the left trigger on your controller to perform a spit attack. This attack will destroy enemy armor in a few hits and can also be used against bear traps. Aiming this attack can be somewhat tricky and may require some practice When pressing the right trigger on your controller the Arthropluera will bite your opponent delivering both damage and torpor. The torpor dealt is 3 x the value of the damage done over a period of 10 seconds. A tamed Arthropluera can be turned into a turret in its behavior options, this will make the Arthropluera use it's spit attack to anything that comes into it's line of sight. Keep in mind that this will only work on wild dino's in pve. In my opinion the Arthropluera can only be useful as a base defender in pvp servers, their movement speed and turning radius prevent them from being useful as a mount. Aiming with the spit attack can also be somewhat difficult. The Arthropluera can however be of great use when you're opponent has bear traps placed around their base.

  12. video Iguanodon Spotlight

    Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to take a closer look at the Iguanodon The Iguanodon is a medium sized herbivore, It's body shows some similarities to both the Parasaur and the Gallimimus, while it's head looks like that of a Stegosaur. The Iguanodon is a gentle animal that will not attack survivors or animals on sight. However, once attacked, they will fight back using their thumb spikes. Iguanodons live in herds and will help defend other Iguanodons that are under attack. Wild Iguanodons usually walk on their hind legs but they are also capable of running on all fours when they need to. The Iguanodon is fairly common on the Island with the exception of the snow biome and mountain peaks, they are mostly seen near grasslands and forests and on rare occasion they can even be found in the red woods. To kill an Iguanodon it is best to use a bola or bear traps to stop the creature from running away, A trapped Iguanodon can be killed fairly easy with melee or ranged weapons. When killed an Iguanodon can be harvested for raw meat and hide. Iguanodons can be picked up by a Quetzal and a Megalosaurus and dropped in a taming pen on a location of choice. It is also possible to lure an Iguanodon into a taming pen by using giant bee honey or rare flowers. The Iguanodon has low torpor and can be knocked out fairly easy with tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts. Once knocked out it will eat Microraptor kibble, Vegetables and berries, The wiki states that the Iguanodon can also be tamed on sweet vegetables cake however after testing this does not seem to be working at the moment. It's torpor can be upheld very easy with a relatively small amount of narcoberries, narcotic or bio toxin. A saddle to ride the Iguanodon can be crafted in your inventory when you're survivor reaches level 30. When riding an Iguanodon you can press the left trigger on you're controller to make it walk on all 4 legs, this will allow your Iguanodon to run at a decent speed without using any stamina. An Iguanodon can also jump by pressing the a button on your controller, this however is only possible when the Iguanodon is walking on its hind legs. An Iguanodon can also be used to gather berries, thatch and a small amount of wood by pressing the right trigger on your controller. The berries in an Iguanodons inventory can be turned into seeds by holding the y button on your controller and selecting the seed fruit in inventory option. Seeds can be used for farming or as an ingredient in custom recipes when the server you play on has that option selected. Even though the Iguanodon has a decent melee attack and can defend itself against small and medium sized predators, using it as an attack animal is not advised due to the Iguanodons low health. Keep in mind that an Iguanodon uses its thumb spikes to attack. Performing an attack while running is possible but will cause the Iguanodon to exit its four-footed stance. The Iguanodon can also roar by pressing the right joystick on your controller. however, this does not have any function for attacking or harvesting. In my opinion the Iguanodon can be a very useful mount. It has a decent carry weight that can be used to transport materials and scout the Island without using any stamina, this can be of great value for starting and medium advanced tribes. The ability to transform berries in to seeds might seem useful when starting a farm, however there is no real further use for large amounts of seeds, making this ability rather pointless.

  13. video Basilosaurus Spotlight

    Welcome to Unevolved Gaming today we are going to take a closer look at the Basilosaurus The Basilosaurus is a large aquatic mammal that shares some physical similarities with a Humpback or Blue Whale. It has a long stretched slender body with a head that looks like a mixture between an Ichthy and a Mosasaurus. The Basilosaurus can be found in the shallow parts of the ocean surrounding Herbivore island and in the cold northern waters that surround the Islands snow biome. Unlike many other large marine animals, the Basilosaurus is not aggressive towards survivors and their tames unless provoked. However, being cautious around this creature is highly advised due to Megalodons patrolling the waters around them and the fact that they are commonly surrounded by a large group of Manta's and Ichthy's that can swarm survivors and creatures that come to close. To kill a Basilosaurus it is best to use a strong mount or ranged weapons such as a crossbow or a harpoon launcher. A dead Basilosaurus can be harvested for raw prime meat, hide and oil. It's inventory can also contain Basilosaurus Blubber which is needed to summon the Dragon boss on beta and aplha difficulty. Before attempting to tame a Basilosaurus it is best to either use a fast mount like a Manta or Ichthy to lure away all surrounding animals or to use a mount such as a Baryonyx to attack nearby creatures before being swarmed. The Basilosaurus is a passive tame. It can be tamed with all kinds of meat or fish however, it prefers Therizinosaurus kibble, raw mutton, Raw prime meat or raw prime fish meat. To tame a Basilosaurus it is advised to use scuba gear, survivors that don't have access to scuba gear can always use Lazarus chowder or a Diplocaulus to extend their stay underwater. To feed the Basilosaurs place it's food in the last slot of your hotbar and press the Y button on your controller to feed it.The Basilosaurus will have a longer waiting period in between the first and second feeding, after the second feeding this waiting period will be decreased. Survivors will also have to keep in mind that when you feed a Basilosaurus it can create a red bloody cloud around its mouth that can attract other animals near it. A saddle to ride the Basilosaurus can be crafted in the smithy when a survivor reaches level 60. It is not advised to use a Basilosaurus in deep water as they take damage due to high pressure at the bottom of the ocean. The Basilosaurus is therefor better suited to stay in shallow waters where it can regenerate it's health fast. The Basilosaurus also has a unique capability to protect it's rider from extreme temperatures, this might come in handy for survivors with low fortitude and also allows players to partially wear a flak armor to ad protection along with their scuba tank. The Basilosaurus is the only mount that protects itself and it's rider from taking damage from the electric shock given by the Cnidaria and Electrophorus Due to this unique ability the Basilosaurus is an extremely effective mount to gather bio toxin from Cnidaria corpses. The Basilosaurus can also not be grabbed by the tentacles of the Tusoteuthis which makes collecting black pearls a lot easier A Basilosaurus will generate up to 20 oil in it's inventory over time. This oil can be used in the same way as regular oil, the only difference is that the oil generated by the Basilosaurus has a spoil timer. In my opinion the Basilosaurus is one of the best mounts for underwater exploration. Even though fighting alpha predators is not advised, an experienced rider can defeat most other underwater predators depending on their level including the Tusoteuthis. Upgrading stamina and health on the Basilosaurus might prove useful before bringing it to battle. The ability to withstand the Cnidaria's shocks and the Tusoteuthis grapple make the Basilosaurus the safest mount to collect bio toxin and black pearls for any tribe. That concludes our spotlight on the Basilosaurus don't forget to comment, leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and we will see you in the next episode where we will take a closer look at the. Iguanodon.
  14. Fishing Raft tutorial

    Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, today we are going to show you how to build the fishing boat used in our Pachyrhinosaurus video. First of all we want to thank everyone for all the support on our video's Previous changes to raft building are reverted in xbox patch 759.2 which makes building this fishing boat once again possible in both official and unofficial servers. To build this raft we are going to need some structures, Feel free to pause the video here to write them down or check the description below. 1 x Wooden raft/Motorboat 26 x Stone foundations 13 x Thatch ceilings 9 x Wooden pillars 30 x stone walls 1 x Stone dinosaur gateway 1 x Reinforced wooden Dinosaur gate 2 x Stone fence foundations 2 x Sloped stone wall right 2 x Sloped stone wall left 2 x Stone sloped ceiling 4 x Stone ceiling 4 x Stone doorframe 4 x Reinforced wooden door 3 x Wooden ramp ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Optional 2 x Wooden chair 2 x Preserving bin 2 x Simple bed 2 x Ballista turret 2 x Storage box Step 1 Lowering foundations on your raft Stand behind the rudder of the raft and select a wooden pillar from your hotbar. Press the y button on your controller to enter the drive position. This enables you to place the pillar centered on the front of the raft. Exit the drive position and snap a foundation to the pillar, this will allready lower your first foundation. To lower the foundations deeper in to the raft demolish the pillar and place a new pillar in the center of the foundation. When you snap a new foundation to the pillar it will be lowered a little bit deeper. Demolish the foundation with the pillar and the pillar it self and place a new pillar in the center of the new foundation. Repeat these steps untill your raft is visible through the foundation. Once your foundation is lowered to the right depth simply snap 8 more foundations to the lowered one to enclose the whole raft. Make sure your raft is visible trough the foundations otherwise you won't be able to drive the raft. If foundations won't lower on placement you can cycle through it's snap points by using the y or the select button on your controller. Step 2 Building the Fish trap. Drive the raft to deeper water and place a pillar in the center of a foundation on the back side of the raft where the rudder is located. Jump in to the water and place 3 more pillars under the one you allready placed. Snap a thatch ceiling to the pillar and extend it backworths by placing two thatch ceilings behind it. The thatch ceilings will allow you to place foundations underneath them. The foundations make it possible to snap 2 more thatch ceilings to the allready placed ones. Place foundations under these thatch ceilings so you have a row of 4 foundations. Attach 4 more ceilings on both sides and place foundations underneath them. Once all foundations have been placed we can demolish all the pillars and thatch ceilings. We have now created a floating floor that is 3 wide and 4 long behind the raft. We can now start to close off our fish trap. Place 2 walls on both the left and right side on the back of the platform to create a 2 wide gap. Put 2 stone fence foundations on the edge of the platform between the walls to make the stone dinosaur gateway snap in the correct position. Place the Reinforced Dinosaur Gate and the remaining walls to close off the fish trap completely. Make sure to use the right snap points when placing the walls that connect the raft to the trap. Step 3 Fishing huts and interior By attaching 2 wooden ramps to the back of the raft we create easy acces to both the raft and the fish trap. It also allows us to park the Pachyrhinosaurus on the raft after luring fish in the fish trap. 1 more wooden ramp is placed on the front of the raft to allow acces from both sides. To build a simple fishing hut on the right side of the raft we placed 2 stone doorframes, 1 facing the fish trap and 1 facing the center of the raft. Wall in the rest of the building with normal and sloped walls and close off this structure completly by placing normal and sloped ceilings on top of the building. The sloped ceiling will give you acces to weaponry like the ballista turret placed on top of the building and wil save on building space before reaching the structure limit of 88 on the raft Mirror this fishing hut on the other side of the raft to allow 2 players to have a fishing spot at the same time. Inside both fishing huts we placed a bed, a storage box and a preserving bin to store loot and bait. A wooden chair is placed behind the door facing the fish trap to allow you to fish from the inside of the building. This raft can of course be build in wood, stone and metal and will also work on top of a motor boat. Swim the Pachyrhinosaurus in to the fishing boat through the dinosaur gateway. Use the ramps to park the it in the center of the raft and you are ready to go fishing. It is best to use this fishing boat on river deltas to stay clear of any unwanted Leedsichthys and land animals attracted by the Pachyrhinosaurus's chemical pheromones. If you dont know how to use the Pachyrhinosaurus for fishing you can watch our video explaining you everything you need to know about the Pachyrhinosaurus. That concludes our tutorial about the fishing boat We are looking forward to see pictures of your fishing trips and improvements of the fishing boat on our twitter page! @UnevolvedGaming
