  1. Agree that the ammo is a pain but so is making like 500 shotgun shells for Rockwell so they kinda cancel out. You also need to invest in crafting a high level shotty (which entails finding the BP in the first place) or to get lucky and find a good premade. All in all I think doing Rockwell w an Andrew could actually be less investment up front. Disagree with the notion that you need a bred and imprinted Andrew. A high level tame would do just fine imo because you're not actually relying on the Andrew to fight Rockwell like Rexes would in a normal boss fight, its more of a transportation method while avoiding as much damage as possible. Not sure if animals can eat cactus broth, but if they can it would actually be really easy provided you have met the ammo needs. Really depends on how much ammo you would need though. If you have a bunch of surplus ammo lying around, say from a raid, Andrew might be viable.
  2. This is a game centered around taming dinosaurs. Food drain while riding a mount is very slow. You're not supposed to be running around on foot nonstop.
  3. Its one of the very few aesthetic building items in the game. Overall arks building is much more complex then in Conan, but Conan had tons of cosmetic items to put around your base to make it feel like a unique home. I'm hoping Ark 2 steps up the building interiors a lot.
  4. It is when youre on a PVP server and every magma cave is blocked by the alpha
  5. Agree. Compared to Lost Island its really bad.
  6. I feel like the crappy turning radius kinda ruins the Andrew
  7. To be honest thats kind of the same thing - a bunch of unrealistic or impractical extras that no one is going to bother with just so he can make a click bait title about the sword. Who's gonna do all that just to break tek foundations. Well no one thats who, but it makes a nice click bait title for YT views and here we are talking about it.
  8. Let me guess he spawned in some 1000% damage singleplayer tek sword to do the test then acted like it was official settings.
  9. The desmodus is in a good spot imo Great abilities and really fun to fly around with but you can still lose to an equally skilled player on a griffin, or dragon or pt etc.
  10. Just YouTube a video about the caves
  11. Seems every new map there's always some big oversight with allowing building in a crucial location. Happened with gen 1 tp areas and gen 2 mission areas. I doubt it'll get fixed as they can just say it doesnt block spawn locations so its not against tos.
  12. This one looks very interesting. The roster of viable flyers is deep and maybe the Desmodus can shake things up even further. F'n rock drakes, yes ! Hopefully no manas since they were just in LI. Teleporting was a massive issue in Genesis especially at launch, so I'm hoping WC has learned from past failures. Limiting building in crucial areas will help. Legit game changer with the Fjord hawk. Basically not only do you need to kill a guy now, you also have to skeet shoot his bird out of the sky before it robs the loot. If the Andrew gets respectable DPS from its minigun, I could see it being a good hit and run threat in PvP, with the ability to directly snipe people off mounts. Rushing bases under the protection of the turret dome and an Andrew with beefed up health could allow you to get close enough to dismount with c4 or rockets in hand. Drakes and Bats, this is going to be the map of invisibility and I'm here for it. Bring on launch.
  13. Wow the exact same stuff as the current game from 7 years ago. How exciting. Such imagination
  14. I've always held the view that obelisks and artifact caves should be no build zones. Locking people out of the boss is lame.
  15. Do yourself a favor and look up an island note run (not lost island the original island map) video on YT. You can get to level 70+ in 5 minutes. From there pump your movement speed. At 170 speed you can outrun everything but you can get by with a little less if you prefer more health or weight etc. Sometimes you have to lure predators away first and then race back for your stuff. Dont always try to dive right onto your pack. Hope this helps
  16. Everyone started on the same equal footing in lost island so if you're miles behind other tribes thats on you. I'm at tek level as a solo. Stop complaining and get to work.
  17. Yo WC can I get some retro pay element from the 2 times I already beat the boss.
  18. You dont really need the aim of a 12 year old on mountain dew when the wyverns fly at you in a straight line and are the size of a bus, but whatever works for you.
  19. My server, 209, has been down since yesterday. I'm now missing the 2nd day of a 7 day event. I know there are many many more servers like mine. Surely there will be an extension to compensate those who cant play, right ?
  20. Getting milk is actually really easy. Forget traps just net the Wyv. With a good long neck and shock darts you can ko them before the net breaks. I never raised a Wyv before lost island because I thought it would be a long arduous process but it's actually not hard at all. A high level needs milk maybe twice before it's fully grown.
  21. Its coming in March. Keep your pants on. You can survive a few more weeks without your level 600 super mana
  22. I think LI probably has the best biome transitions imo (geography wise not temperature). It doest feel too abrupt. Some maps feel like they have a literal straight line where one biome ends and another begins. I really like how the red woods is laid out across the map too. It's such a fun map to cruise around on with a Maewing (shoutout to Peppermint). The volcano area is so cool looking at night. Even the desert has a lot of variation in it with black mountains, deep canyons, and open sand. My previous 2 favorite maps are CI and Ab but Lost Island does some things way better than either of them. Still think CI is my overall fav but LI bumps Ab out of the 2 spot.
