  1. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, As requested in the comment section, we are going to take a closer look at the Beelzebufo The Beelzebufo is a medium sized amphibian that shows a close resemblance to the modern day toad or bull frog, only far larger in size. It has a quick and lengthy tongue which allows it to kill and harvest insects such as the Meganeura or Titanomyrma almost instantly. Even though the Beelzebufo is a carnivore, it is not aggressive towards survivors or tamed creatures unless attacked. The Beelzebufo can be found in the swamps and marshy area's on the Island, the center and ragnarok. They do however not occur on the Scorched earth map due to a lack of their natural habitat. When attempting to kill a Beelzebufo survivors will have to keep in mind that the swamp is not the safest place to be on foot, there are many other hostile creatures in the area, such as the Kaprosuchus and Titanoboa. Even though the Beelzebufo is mostly a docile creature, its tongue attack can inflict torpor and can knock out a survivor in only a few hits, it is therefor best to make use of ranged weapons from an elevated position where their tongue can't reach you or a strong and powerful mount as the Megatherium. When killed a Beelzebufo can be harvested for raw meat and hide Survivors that want to tame a Beelzebufo are advised to clear out the area first or to lure the Beelzebufo to a safe location out of the swamp before knocking it out with tranquilizer arrows, darts and shocking tranquilizer darts. It is also possible to pick up a Beelzebufo with an Argentavis or Quetzal and drop it into a taming pen on a location of choice. Survivors that don't have access to a flier or play on pve can also make use of bola's and bear traps in order to stop a Beelzebufo in its track before knocking it out. When using a taming pen it is best to build one that is high enough so the Beelzebufo can not escape. When knocked out the Beelzebufo can be given all kinds of meat or fish in order to start the tame, they do however prefer Pulmonoscorpus kibble, raw mutton, raw prime meat and raw prime fish meat An unconscious Beelzebufo's torpor can easily be upheld with a relative small amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin. When tamed a Beelzebufoo can be equipped with a saddle. This saddle allows survivors to make full use of their weapons while mounted and can be crafted in a survivors inventory when they reached level 40. A tamed Beelzebufo is actually a very fast swimmer that doesn't need oxygen when submerged. On land they are fairly slow except when jumping. This jump can cover large distances and can be performed by pressing the A button on your controller. The Beelzebufo will regenerate most of the stamina that is used for jumping while in the air. A Beelzebufo can strike its opponents with its tongue attack. This attack can be preformed by pressing the right trigger on your controller and causes the Beelzebufo to attack horizontally with its tongue from a decent distance. Even though the Beelzebufo's tongue attack inflicts torpor, it is rarely used to knock out creatures due to the frogs low base health. The Beelzebufo can also strike its opponents at close range with a tongue swipe. This attack deals far more damage and torpor then the tongue attack and can be preformed by pressing the left trigger on your controller. Both of the Beelzebufo's attacks can gather decent quantities of Cementing Paste and chitin in a relatively short period of time by attacking insects and harvesting their corpses. It also appears that Leeches will not attack tamed Beezlebufos, this makes them very useful to harvest Leech Blood. When using the Beelzebufo to collect large amounts of cementing paste it is best to do this in the swamp as it has a larger population of Titanomyrma and Meganeura. These insects can usually be found in swarms and are attracted to dead creatures that are within their range. Insects that are scavenging a corpse will become aggressive when disturbed making them easy targets for the Beelzebufo. In my opinion the Beelzebufo can be a very useful tame for starting survivors on both pve and pvp. It's ability to gather large amounts of chitin and cementing paste can be of great use for those who don't have access to beaver dams or an Achatina. The Beelzebufo can also be a great mount when traveling the Island as they are fast swimmers and can cover large distances with their jump without using much stamina. On pvp servers the Beelzebufo can be useful when raiding an enemy base that does not yet have a large amount of defenses as it can jump over walls and tranquilize enemy survivors in quick succession.

  2. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, As requested in the comment section, we are going to take a closer look at the Megalosaurus The Megalosaurus is a medium sized theropod that shows some similarities in appearance to other predators like the Carnotaurus, its back, head and tail however are covered with a thin layer of feathers. Even Though the Megalosaurus is considered to be in the same category as other aggressive carnivores its behavior is more similar to the Troodon as they are both nocturnal creatures. The Megalosaurus can be found in some caves on The Island, The Center and Scorched Earth, On Ragnarok however they can be found above ground east of Viking Bay. The Lower south cave on the Island can be considered the easiest location to find a Megalosaurus due to its location, relative small size and accessibility with a mount. Survivors will have to keep in mind that a wild Megalosaurus can only be found in a limited amount on a server at a time similar to the Megalania. A Megalosaurus that is found during the day is usually sleeping in a curled up position and can be approached in relative safety. When touched or attacked the Megalosaurus will wake up and pursue a survivor for a short distance, however because of its sleep deprivation during the day it will move very sluggish and its attacks will be relatively weak. As soon as the night falls the Megalosaurus wakes up and becomes a dangerous predator with glowing eyes similar to the Troodon. In this awoken state the Megalosaurus is no longer held back by sleep deprivation. This turns the Megalosaurus into a hunter that can outrun most creatures. The attack of a Megalosaurus during the night will have approximately double the normal the damage output. Survivors that are attempting to kill a Megalosaurus are highly advised to do this during the day when the creature is at it's weakest. Even though a Megalosaurus can be stopped in its tracks by a large bear trap it is still best to use ranged weapons from a safe location to avoid its grab attack. Survivors can also make use of grappling hooks or a mount like a Megalania in order to shoot the Megalosaurus while hanging from a wall or ceiling. When killed a Megalosaurus can be harvested for raw meat, hide, raw prime meat and keratin. When trying to tame a Megalosaurus survivors will have to keep in mind that cave systems can be very dangerous as they are inhabited by creatures such as the Arthropluera, it is therefor best to clear out the area or to lure the Megalosaurus to a safe location before knocking it out with tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts. Even though a Megalosaurus can be picked up by a Quetzal most servers do not allow fliers in caves. Luring a Megalosaurus to a safe location can best be done during the day as the Megalosaurus will be so slow that a survivor can walk backwards while shooting it. It is also possible that a Megalosaurus will pass out without using a single tranquilizer due to the fact that it will rapidly gain torpor as soon as its sleep deprivation meter is full. When unconscious the Megalosaurus can be given all kinds of meat or fish in order to start the tame, they do however prefer Oviraptor kibble, raw mutton, raw prime meat and raw prime fish meat. Taming a Megalosaurus can become a bit confusing as they will wake up each night at approximately 8:30pm regardless of their torpidity. When a Megalosaurus wakes up during the tame all items that were placed in its inventory will be lost, taming progress and food depletion however are paused and will resume as soon as the Megalosaurus is knocked out again. Survivors will have to keep in mind that knocking out a Megalosaurus multiple times will have a negative effect on its health and therefor taming efficiency, it is recommended to use normal or shocking tranquilizer darts as they deal less damage than tranquilizer arrows. Only a small amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin is required to keep a Megalosaurus unconscious during the tame due to the fact that a survivor will have to knock out the Megalosaurus again after it awakes at 8:30 pm regardless of its torpor. A saddle to ride the Megalosaurus can be crafted in the smithy when a survivor reaches level 57 this saddle does not allow survivors to use their weapons while mounted. When tamed, Survivors will have to keep in mind that the Megalosaurus is ussually asleep between 5.15am and 8.30pm. It is posible to wake up a Megalosaurus during the day in its radial menu or by pressing the y button on your controller when near the Megalosaurus. When awoken during the day your Megalosaurus will build up sleep deprivation which causes it to move very sluggish. As soon as its sleep deprivation meter is full the Megalosaurus will go back to sleep or rapidly gain torpor. The Megalosaurus is also not the best battle mount during the day as it receives 20% more damage when attacked and deal only half the damage compared to the same attack at night. A Megalosaurus is actually a strong mount during the night ,it's bite attack which can be performed by pressing the right trigger on your controller is very fast and can be devastating for your opponents as it does double the damage. During the day the same attack is very slow and will cost significantly more stamina. On pvp servers a tamed Megalosaurus is also able to pick up small to medium sized creatures including fliers as the Argentavis and Pteranodon by pressing the left trigger on your controller without drawing agro from the creature. When carrying a creature in its jaws the Megalosaurus can bite down and shake its prey by pressing the right trigger on your controller. This attack costs significantly less stamina during the night. On pve servers however the Megalosaurus is unable to pick up wild creatures. It is also possible to make your Megalosaurus roar by pressing the right joystick on your controller when mounted, this roar however has no real purpose in the game. In my opinion the Megalosaurus only has a real use on pvp servers where it is able to carry small to medium sized creatures, this might be useful when attempting to knock out one of these creatures or when transporting them to a taming pen. Even though the Megalosaurus is a decent battle mount during the night there is hardly any use for it during the day because of its sleep deprivation. That concludes our spotlight on the Megalosaurus 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.

  4. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, As requested in the comment section, we are going to take a closer look at the Direwolf The Direwolf is a medium sized mammal that shows a large resemblance to the modern day wolf. They are very aggressive carnivorous hunters and can usually be found roaming the cold snow covered regions of the island. Direwolves on the Island usually hunt in large packs varying in size from 4 to 8 members, On Scorched Earth however direwolves spawn as single wolves due to the fact that their pack boost would otherwise make them to strong opponents. Similar to Hyenadons the highest level Direwolf will be the pack's alpha and has a glowing red aura surrounding it. If the pack's alpha dies or get's separated, another Direwolf will take its place and become alpha. When attempting to kill a Direwolf survivors will have to keep in mind that the snow biome is not the safest place to be on foot, there are many other hostile creatures in the area, such as the Yutyrannus, Daeodon and Sabretooth. Wild Direwolves are almost always found in packs and can easily swarm and kill even larger and more powerful mounts. Their pack also provides them with a damage and mate bonus which makes them opponents that should not be underestimated. Direwolves are however vulnerable to attacks from creatures that deal knock back such as the Spinosaurus. A Survivor that encounters a pack of Direwolves on foot is best of shooting them with ranged weapons from an elevated position where the pack can not reach you or from an ice shelf where the wolf will have to swim to get to you. When killed a Direwolfs corpse can be harvested for raw meat hide and pelt. In order to tame a Direwolf safely a survivor will have to separate it from its pack, this can be done by picking up the Direwolf with an Argentavis or Quetzal and dropping it in a taming pen on a location of choice. Survivors that play on pve or don't have access to an Argentavis or Quetzal can also make use of bola's and bear traps to stop a single Direwolf in its tracks. A taming pen made out of door frames will prevent a trapped Direwolf from escaping and can be very useful when knocking out the wolf with tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts without getting hit. Direwolves are carnivores and can be tamed with all kinds of meat or fish, they do however prefer Carno kibble, raw mutton, raw prime meat and raw prime fish meat. When knocked out a Direwolf only requires a relatively small amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin to keep their torpor up while taming. Once tamed a Direwolf does not require a saddle to be ridden, it does however allow survivors to make full use of their weapons while mounted. To compensate for the lack of armor that is normally provided by a saddle, a tamed direwolf has a natural damage reduction of 40%. Tamed Direwolves also receive a bonus when they are in a pack, each wolf in the pack will add a 5 % damage bonus with a maximum of 20% these bonuses stack with mate and imprint boost if available. The highest level wolf or alpha will get an additional 50% damage bonus. Direwolves are quite fast while running and have a low stamina drain, they also have the ability to jump over obstacles by pressing the A button on your controller. Survivors will have to keep in mind that jumping from high obstacles can result in fall damage. A Direwolf is actually a surprisingly strong mount, it's bite attack which can be performed by pressing the right trigger on your controller is very fast and can be devastating for your opponents especially when your Direwolf has a pack and mate bonus. This bite attack can be used while running and will harvest large amounts of chitin, pelt, hide, leech blood and angler gel from creatures that drop these resources, it can also be used to harvest decent amounts of raw prime meat and organic polymer. It is also possible to make your Direwolf howl by pressing the left trigger on your controller when mounted, this howl however has no real purpose in the game. In my opinion the Direwolf is a very useful mount with a wide variety of uses in both pve and pvp, It's decent movement speed and low stamina drain make it a mount suited for scouting and traveling, while its relative small size even allows it to enter most caves. A single Direwolf is already very powerful by itself, a pack of wolves however can take down larger and stronger creatures in seconds and are a great addition to any base defense. Even though Direwolves can be very useful to gather materials such as chitin and pelt they lack the capacity to carry large amounts of these resources, it is therefor advised to upgrade a wolfs weight before using it for this purpose. That concludes our spotlight on the Direwolf 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.
  5. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, As requested in the comment section, we are going to take a closer look at the Griffin The Griffin is a medium sized creature that has its origin in legends. Their appearance is best described as a hybrid with a body and hind legs of a lion while their wings, head and front talons show large resemblance to an eagle. Griffins are very aggressive predators that can only be found on the Ragnarok map. They are most commonly found on the plains and mountain ridges surrounding the small lake just north of the green obelisk. On occasion Griffins are also reported to spawn on the cliffs near the Beaver sanctuary just east of the Viking bay castle. Griffins are easy to spot due to the cloud of dust they create with there wings while flying close to the ground. Griffins are rather strong opponents and don't appear to take any bonus damage from ranged weapons that other flying creatures do. Fortunately, wild Griffin attacks don't inflict as much damage as other flying creatures. Griffins are also easily distracted, and prone to switch targets. A flying Griffins attack can easily be avoided due to their large turning radius, which makes attacking them with an Argentavis that has a decent melee and stamina possible. Using a flier to kill a griffin can however be a time consuming undertaking due to the Griffins large health. Survivors that don't have access to a decent flier can also use ranged weapons or pikes when a griffin attacks from the ground or circles a survivor at short range. Using a mount with an attack that has a wide area of effect and decent damage output like a T-Rex can be very effective when attempting to kill a Griffin. Survivors will have to keep in mind that there can be other hostile creatures in the area, such as the Allosaurus, Carno or Terror Bird. When killed a Griffin can be harvested for raw meat and hide. The easiest way to tame a Griffin is to make it follow you into a taming pen with a flier or on foot. A simple taming pen made out of door frames or pillars will work as long as it is closed of with ceilings so the Griffin can not escape. When trapped a Survivor can knock out a Griffin with tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts The Griffin being a carnivore can be tamed with al kinds of meat and fish however they prefer Allosaurus kibble, raw mutton, raw prime meat or raw prime fish meat Even though the Griffin needs a lot of tranquilizers to be knocked out, they only require a relatively small amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin to keep their torpor up. When tamed, a Griffin does not require a saddle to be ridden. They do however have the ability to carry a rider and a passenger, both the rider and the passenger will be able to make full use of their weapons when mounted on the Griffin both on land and in the air. The Griffin is a land and air predator. When on the ground a Griffin can do a bite attack by pressing the right trigger on your controller, when airborne this attack will make the Griffin claw its opponent. This attack is not extremely powerful however combined with the Griffins maneuverability it can devastating for your opponent. A Griffin can also pick up survivors and small creatures like Otters and Compy's with its front talons by pressing the left trigger on your controller while flying or hovering over them. Keep in mind that on official pve servers wild animals can not be picked up. Even though the Griffin has a large turning radius they are extremely agile and can easily outmaneuver most creatures in the game. Their ability to escape from danger with a high speed dive can be very useful when fighting a Wyvern or to use during an escape while stealing a Wyverns egg's. This maneuver can be performed by pushing the left joystick forward while looking at the ground. Performing a dive will drain a Griffins stamina. The same maneuver can also be turned into a dive bomb and used to attack land based targets, this can be done by lining up a target right below your griffin, pushing the left joystick forward and diving vertically on top or close to your target. This will cause your Griffin to pound onto its target. When done correctly the impact of a dive bomb can kill smaller creatures in one hit. A dive bomb can be abborted by pressing the left joystick on your controller even while already diving. Survivors will have to keep in mind that the Griffin must be sprinting and that the dive has to be vertical to be turned into a dive bomb, survivors that are using a weapon while mounted can not perform a dive bomb. A Griffin can also perform a diving swipe attack in order to inflict an even higher amount of damage. This can be done by using the claw or right trigger attack when hitting a creature coming from a high speed dive. This dive can be repeated when pulling up after clawing the target and does not have to be vertical as long as you have enough speed. Survivors will have to keep in mind that both the dive bomb and the dive swipe will drain a Griffins stamina rapidly. The Griffins ability to hover or move in any direction also make it a very useful mount to place walls and ceilings in hard to reach places. This ability can also prove very useful when collecting giant bee honey from bee hives. In my opinion the griffin is a very useful mount for both pve and pvp servers. It's ability to carry 2 survivors make the Griffin an essential mount for taming purposes while it's maneuverability and speed make it a mount not to be underestimated. Performing a dive bomb or dive swipe can be devastating for your opponents when executed correctly, they might however take some practice at first. Survivors will have to keep in mind that hitting a tree whilst performing a dive bomb can result in your Griffin taking considerable fall damage.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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
  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

    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.
