  1. Stuff like this makes the game so much more fun than just kill grind die respawn do it again. Bravo for the creativity and dedication to breeding your wolves. I vote you use nothing but wolves. Adding Yutys and pigs kinda defeats the whole purpose. Would make an interesting video
  2. I had a hidden floating house attached to only one pillar on official pvp for a good month. No bans or trouble at all and in that time frame a boat i meshed into a wall got anti-meshed, so I'd say floating structures are safe. One thing you have to keep an eye on is the decay timer, especially if you snap a wooden building piece like a ramp because when you suspend a base if one piece gets destroyed the whole thing comes crashing down.
  3. You can get the whip on Valguero along with some aberration stuff like the glider and climbing picks.
  4. At this point the game was way outgrown dinosaurs. I loved the prehistoric feel of ark back in the day too, but what is adding another variation of a trex or trike really gonna do for the game..? They can get much more creative with stuff like an invisible freakin lion, and honestly I think something like that is simply more interesting than another dinosaur added to the 100 dinos we already have. Again, with the map what are they gonna do add another volcano/snow/desert area ? We've been there done that several times over. I absolutely love the look of the ship and how the bi
  5. I fully understand the business model you're talking about, but I hope we get 99% if not all the creatures in the game on gen 2, considering it's the last hurrah.
  6. Its not really overpowered if everyone has one but I do think it's a major monkey wrench thrown into the game. Who knows maybe the difficulty of the map will be ratcheted up to account for the buff to our characters. I enjoy starting out as a naked box of garbage on a new map and getting killed 100 times while exploring until I get my bearings. That being said, I'm not looking at the instant tek suit as necessarily a bad thing, just much different than what we're used to. Actually as someone who's never beaten a boss, I'm excited the tek barrier is finally being removed.
  7. Now theyve just shown off the loadout mannequin. I LOVE this. My god this livestream has been hype 9000
  8. Wow debbie downer ^^^ Honestly gen 1 sucked. After CI came out I never went back and never will other than to get bloodstalkers. Only good thing to come from gen1. The teleporting and build restrictions killed it. But... Gen 2 looks AWESOME. The hoverboard ! The invisible lion ! The massive robot giraffes ! Biggest map ever ! The new evil mind control shoulder pet ! The incubator! And they've corrected the things that made gen 1 terrible by doing dedicated separate mission areas and eliminating the awful teleportation. I wasnt expecting much after gen 1
  9. Again it comes down to ease of breeding for me, which was the genesis for this whole thread. Allos are stupidly easy to tame as well. All the top tier boss animals take 3+ days while Allos arent even half that.
  10. Thanks for the advice but I'm not going through all that stat hunting and breeding to perfection especially when the random 135-150 allos I bred were more than enough to get the job done.
  11. Well we lost the fight but it wasnt because of the Allos. They actually shredded the dragon quite well when it was landed in its nest. We ran into trouble getting it back onto the ground though. Overall I would conclude that Allos are 100% viable boss animals. If it was a grounded opponent like the monkey or broodmother I have no doubt we would have won with ease. If he had done better with the Wyvern Queen in its flying state we would have definitely breezed through the ground combat. Will possibly try again and this time bring our own dragons.
  12. Update: I have 5 tames and 10 babies, so I'll bringing a total of 15 to the fight. Some of the babies hatched with pretty legit stats but some are a bit lackluster. Hopefully leveling them can get the weaker ones up to snuff. I'm shooting to have a minimum of 12k hp and 400 melee but some might not quite get there. Working on raising now so theoretically they should be done sat night and then I'll let them marinate overnight in cryos to get them leveled a bit. Planning on Sunday morning before football for the big showdown.
  13. So when do full transfers open on console?
  14. Hold X The draft is a game changer. You're instantly the fastest thing in the sky besides maybe a skiff. Haven't tested if you can draft off a skiff but that would be awesome.
  15. I'll be sure to record it but I probably wont be ready til next week. Want to tame a few more females to speed up the egg laying process and try to get all the breeding done in one shot this weekend. I'm aiming to bring a minimum of 15 Allos into the scrap.
  16. How much health do you need ? I tamed a 150 male that came out with over 5k health. Another 140 female I tamed came out with over 4k which I now have over 10k after pumping some levels I got from it sitting in cryo overnight. The female still has a good 30 levels left so I can definitely get it to at least 15k with some levels left over for melee. I know a 67 armor saddle isnt god tier but it aint too shabby either and should help with damage mitigation.
  17. First off I know Rexes, Theris, Rhinos etc are better for bosses. This thread is about the viability of Allos. So I'm working toward my first boss fight and I've decided on Allos since they have a really short breed time and I have a 67 armor journeyman saddle bp thats easy to make (I know some people love breeding but its a chore to me). Of course I'll bring along a Yuty and a pig also. I understand the bleed effect doesnt work on bosses but allos seem decent enough in hp and melee to run at least a gamma boss. So has anyone done the bosses with allos?
  18. Yeah I loved Raptor Claus. By far the best event imo. I thought you could cook chibis in the cooking pot outside of events but I guess I'm wrong. Oh well.
  19. Is there anyway to get chibis now (aside from stealing them from other players) ?
  20. Ark is a mix of both for me. Running around wrecking things with a souped up rex or blasting around the map on a tropie is fun, but some of the tasks you must perform to get the high level animals are boring or downright tedious. This game is a trade off, always has been.
  21. 1280 !!!! I got a level 130 with around 270ish BPs last week
  22. The servers have literally never run "fine" since I started this game like 5 years ago
  23. Getting stun locked by a Bary in the water is one of the most frustrating things in this game as well. There should definitely be a cool down on wild dino status effects.
  24. Consider yourself lucky if your game only crashes on Genesis
