  1. what is a most useless item in ark

    Probably all those items that do something you can do a better way anyway. Like DarthaNyan mentioned, Flashlight is awesome. Except, you can just turn up the gamma, so why use it? The ability to take screenshots with a camera and then paint them on to a canvas would be amazing, except you don't need the in-game camera to do this. The recipes for making consumables seem like they would be really useful. Except you can just look up the recipe on the wiki. And, you probably will even if you use the recipes, since the in-game recipes use 'dollop' instead of just saying how many you need, and so you need to figure out how to decipher them. The walkie-talkie is probably the most obvious example.
  2. Good spotting Joebl0w13. I guess the patch notes will be updated eventually.....
  3. Apparently, Wildcard recently changed it so you can no longer claim other tribes' dinos that expire. The patch notes mention a 'fix' for auto-decay, so I guess that dinos being claimable was just a bug this whole time? See this thread for more info and a quote from Eli about it:
  4. The point of high lvl giga trades on pve?

    Rexes can kill rock elementals. We had some excess rexes and sent them to battle a rock elemental so they would slowly die. But they won...
  5. If you can, kite diplos over to push all their dinos around. This sometimes works better than kiting aggro dinos since they don't kill them, so they won't get a message with what happened. And it's reversable by them so no long-term damage done. Find their body and drag it to a really out of the way place with no fast way to kill themselves. Build a crazy maze and drag them to the centre of it when they are offline. Put signs up saying there is a reward if you make it to the end. Then make it so when they finally get to the exit it's a trap and they just fall down to the start again.
  6. How to make pillars last?

    Also if you place the pillar so it 'snaps' adjacent to another pillar, then that counts as being attached to that pillar even though they're not touching. So as long as one of the pillars has a ladder on it you can line up a whole bunch of them.
  7. You can't breed Griffins, so this is unrealistically high for an official server. Even if you could breed them its almost unobtainably high. Compare with Ankys, for eg. How many 900% ankys have you seen around? And how much work went in to them?
  8. Dinosaur Life Span (Because Caps Suck)

    Life span could work OK if the tame/raise/level rates were higher. But I think implementing a better dino-sink would have the same effect but be less punishing to players, and more fun. Currently the only obvious dino-sinks are ascending, and taming a troodon. There should be more 'caves of no return' where you can take dinos to get some benefit, or like a dino trader you can sell them to via supply drops, or something.
  9. You can use a rifle on a griffin. Shoot the Wyvern rider directly. If you are good at aiming and they don't suspect you you could probably kill them before they even realise what is attacking them.
  10. If your first tame is not a ptera or raptor or something, then I would definitely suggest investing in movement speed. A bunch of movement speed will make kiting things on foot significantly easier. I agree with what others have said about Yutyrannus being one of the highest risk, lowest reward tames you could choose for your first tame. But I also think that makes it an awesome challenge - so, go for it!
  11. Who's in the wrong?

    Once you notice someone is shooting the giga you trapped, that is the time to act in pve. Ask them (in global) to stop shooting the giga you trapped. If they don't respond, wait until they are in a juicy position, stow your gear somewhere safe, then let the giga out of the trap. PS: I don't know the details of the story, but if it matches with your description of events then personally I hope their giga stays trapped until it dies.
  12. How do you deal with leeds?

    Structure resistance is a multiplier. If you set structure resistance to 3 it means they'll be taking 3x normal damage. If Leeds are doing 10% of a raft damage at 3, then set it to 1 and they'll do like 3-4%. Or set it to 0.3 and they will do 1%.
  13. Fastest Sea Creature?

    Other than Alphas, it looks like mosasaurus is the only wild sea creature that can outrun a tamed Angler based on Baton's link.
  14. In my experience, quetzal is easy to tame using griffin. You can fire from the griffin's back, and the griffin is faster than a quetz. Just fly right up to the quetz, follow it, and shoot it until it goes down. Easiest with a rifle but you can use a crossbow too if you are average at aiming. No need to much around with movement commands or anything like that. (Of course once it lands, you need to stop wild dinos eating it, but that's the same with most other quetz taming methods anyway. Also, be careful not to accidentally dive-bomb it either!) PS: For me, hardest enemy I have successfully solo-tamed would be a tapejara. Because I am terrible at aiming with a bola, and always walk too close.
  15. Starting over so you can ovis-tame a bunch of carnivores to server tame cap in a month, and then get your server wiped a couple months later because nobody logs in except to feed their dinos...
