    So what did you do in ARK today?

    Thank you. Ill just do 3k stam, rest hp and see where that gets me Last night and today were pretty boreing. I cranked up xp to 5x and gathering to 3x to make leveling the rex and grinding for the saddles not so horrible. Last night my brothers joined my wife and I in leveling rexes and hide gathering. We just went around the island killing everything in site while hitting explorer notes. Even at 5x xp we hit a wall at about 33k hp and 700 melee where it started taking forever to increase levels. Today we started the day by building an indy forge and putting it on the blue obelisk and then we did a metal run. After that it was more leveling, lol. By the end of today we had enough metal and fiber for the saddles and 65k/100k hide. This week we are going to continue leveling rex, and look for a male yutty. We actually found a lvl 195 male today just as he went off a cliff and into deep ocean I think im going to increase xp to 10x till we get all of the rex leveled. With just my wife and I doing most of the leveling its getting pretty boring, lol.

    So what did you do in ARK today?

    Today's main goal was to find a yutty pair while also leveling some rex. Before we headed to the snow biome with the rex I hopped on my argent to get eyes on a giga we saw a few days before so we knew where he was and where to avoid. I found it and made a mental note. Then we hop on the rex and go. After about an hour we were starting to get bored and the rex were taking longer and longer to increase level (i bumped xp up to 2x to help) So far we only ran into low level yutties. Both our rex were up to 30k hp and 700 melee and we decided to head back and grab argies to continue the search. About the time we got back it was dark so we did a metal run at blue obelisk till morning. We had a good haul though, my wife got a 210% ascendent xbow from an alpha carno and we ended up with over 6k hide for the saddle grind As soon as it got light we set off looking again with argents. Again we were only finding/killing low lvls. I then tell my wife lets do one more pass and call it a day. I was at about as far north as you can get and still be on land and I spotted a 180 female yutty fighting some pigs. I start scoping out spots to trap her and she follows a pig into the ocean...great I thought, its all over now. But it wasnt, the ocean was shallow and she ends up in a narrow cove with high side, so i start dropping dino gates and gateways to block her in, but get to close and fall off my bird into the -30F water. I whistle follow and passive and start swimming to a rock while being chased by carnos. I manage to get on a rock and back on my bird, and finally get the yutty trapped. We get on the cliff and tranq the yutty...but she goes down under water. I dive off the cliff to check on her and we were in luck, it was shallow enough that she wasnt drowning. I throw up a few more gates to make sure she was safe while my wife grabs mutton and a saddle. While my wife was away I delt with the yutties carno possie with my sword as well as cooking up some meat The yutty tames out with 10800 hp and 2100 stam, so about average according to dododex. We get her back to base and decide to look one more time for a male but have no luck so we call it a day. We may get on later tonight. But our next plan is more rex leveling and looking for a male yutty while also gathering hide/metal. On question, once we get a male yutty and breed them, how should a yutty be leveled for bosses? I know stam is most important but I assume it should have some points into hp too

    To feed dinos in the baby stage you just put meat/berries in their inventory and the will eat it as they need it. They can only hold a few at a time at first. Its also important to stay in rendering at first as they wont eat in stasis and could die

    Played a little destiny 2 this morning before hopping on ark. We didn't have a ton of time but we did some gathering for the rex saddles. I also sat down and figured out how much I need for 20 mc rex saddles (i know I only need 19, but if Im doing a wipe to make them, might as well make an extra) Total mats would be 59,000 fiber, 112,000 hide, and 14,720 ingots. Right now we have 17,000 fiber, 8000 ingots, and only 8500 hide, but after we get a couple of yutty tomorrow we are going focus on gathering and leveling rex.

    So what did you do in ARK today?

    Didnt do much today, headed up to blue obelisk with our argy pack to pick up ingots, crystal and obsidian that we had been farming for a few days. Then did another metal, obsidian, and crystal run. Threw the metal in the forges and headed back to base. Decided to craft up several large storage boxes for the fertilizer I have been holding in random dinos. Filled 7 boxes and dropped the rest. Too much fertilizer is a byproduct of dung beetles, lol. I think im going to surround my rex factory is plant x just to use it up. Tomorrow we are going to do another metal run working towards making the saddle. Saturdays main goal is getting a pair of yutty. I'm trying to decide how I want to do it. I have a taming pen in the snow biome so either im going to use a boss rex to lure it to the pen and just tank the yutty while my wife tranqs it, or Ill craft up an ascendent metal shield from a bp I picked up a few days ago and lure it in myself. In the past we used wyvrens to kite them to a pen, but I dont have wyvrens now. Are rock drakes immune to the fear? I do have 4 or 5 on aberration and I can bring 1 over.

    I know what you mean, Im constantly on edge on Aberration, its a pretty dangerous map, especially since things fall from above. I remember the first time a reaper queen popped out in front of me, I jumped out of my chair, lol. All the same I still love it.

    Aberration is a challange to navigate at first, but once you learn some landmarks its not too bad. The obelisk on the surface do suck, so I too spawned a tek transmitter in my aberration base so we can transfer between it and my island server with ease. Once I slow down on my grind to doing bosses on the island Im going to start spending more time on Aberration. I want to get some baslisk (should be easy with all the fert rex eggs I have) and try for a reaper king.

    This was our evening last night Got 13 boss rex from 7 eggs (still no mutations). We now how 20 boss rex, well technically 21 but I added that cool looking one I posted a picture of yesterday to the breeding group, so we have 4 females and 1 male tied up to s+ hitching post to pop out eggs every 18 hrs or so. I still have to hatch 2 or 3 more for my brother to imprint on but that's no big deal. And I've decided rather then breed a bunch of spares, I'm just going to stockpile fertilized eggs for the next few weeks and hatch them as I need replacements since they only take 5 hrs to raise. This morning we just took a pair to start leveling. My plan is to get all of them to 700 melee first then take them out again to pump up the hp. I found something odd but nice, if you run through the swamp chomping trees, for some reason it gives you a lot of xp, gained several levels in just a few minutes and that was without any explorer notes. Tomorrow we may switch gears and focus on gathering for the saddles. We need about 16k ingots and 100k hide to make the 19 MC saddles , although we can get the hide while leveling rex

    That looks awesome, i really need to make an outpost that is focused on looks, most of my bases end up as boring boxes, lol

    Last night we raised 8 rex, and I underestimated how much meat we needed so I had to do a run mid raise, lol. Didnt get any mutation but did get an awesome combo of parent colors on one rex This morning we did a meat run which doubled as a rex leveling run. Killed an alpha rex, alpha carno, and alpha raptor so it was a good run and we got about 6k meat which should be enough for tonights hatch session

    Since your not doing flyers, Kangaroos are great pack mules in SE, they can out run anything and have a great carry weight. When I played SE I had an army of them for picking up oil or metal

    So what did you do in ARK today?

    Wasnt going to have much to talk about today, did a meat run on the rexs and a little dino organizing, but then found this guy while out farming meat. Meet Butt Stallion (name inspired from Borderlands 2) I was just about to chomp him with my rex for meat and hide when I realized it was a unicorn. So we rushed back and grabbed an argent to pick him up and tame him. Its was only lvl 97 pre tame, but it was a unicorn Only the 2nd one I've ever been able to tame in ark. I also downed a 167 female stego outside our base, dropped some mejo berries in it and forgot about it. Remembered an hour later and went to check on it and it was gone. Looked around thinking it woke up and a raptor pins me. So thats what happened to it, i thought. Nbd Im in full flak with 1k armor and 750hp so I wait till he lets me go then introduce him to my ascendent pump shotty, lol So tonight we hatch more rex and tomorrow gather more meat followed by hatching more rex and gathering more meat, lol. This weekends main focus will be taming a pair of yutty, cave running and gathering metal for rex saddles

    Another option is upload all your rex at the drop and download at the obelisk, of course make sure you take the saddles off before hand
