    Quiting Ark because of Server Cap

    this is the issue obviously - as stated in the OP that they are a pve player - a better response would've been "nothing can be done till WC does it" or something. telling someone that plays pve to play pvp isnt really a solution, as you evidently think. we have plenty of threads about tame cap for sure, and most are hijacked into pvp vs pve. this will not be one. maybe you should read again that is inflammatory, it is baiting the Op into a response and is flaming pve players. i ask that you explain yourself without outright trying to offend those of us that pve. i will again thank you for understanding...

    Quiting Ark because of Server Cap

    this is not a pvp vs pve thread - and @BaldBudgie slow that roll if you please - treat your fellow forum members with respect and kindness...baiting and flaming is bad and adds nothing to the conversation. we all appreciate your understanding in this matter.

    Alpha Dragon Island w Theris?

    how we've been doin' it Official PVE-423 (Legacy) theriz - fight stats - 22-25k health and min 800 melee -- our last group was 25k hp/1.3k melee player - fight stats - min 450hp, high weight and movement speed for the shooters. being level 100, some players may not be able to re-roll. they should do an ascension fight first for extra levels, the last thing you want is players getting one shot by meteors (or killed by first mob) because they didnt come with proper stats. theriz had 115-120 Asc saddles -- we usually give 5 cakes per theriz -- most come out with 2-3 still in their inventory. yuty was 100% imprint 28k hp/4k stam/350ish melee -- 124 Asc saddle -- good tamed yuty is just fine too, i like the extra movement speed from imprinting tho AR's were 290 Asc, 1.5k rounds each player -- make sure they bring the ammo, a shooter with no ammo is uesless and = dead theriz flak or riot min 1300 armor med brew- healing focal chili- faster movement speed shadow steak- reduces recoil cactus broth or calien soup- deals with heat dont use enduro stew, med brews do not heal while the stew buff is in effect take 10 players -- 3 players have a theriz and are guards against the mobs, the others are shooters on foot that run to the guards when the mobs come (dimorphs/pteras). one (yuty) is in control of the hoard. when the dragon is chewing on the hoard all 9 are to be shooting the dragon. once the theriz are "screamed" the yuty driver should also be shooting. the yuty driver should not be the alone in a tribe, there has to be someone else to take the hoard if the yuty driver dies. usually one of my tribemates will try to turn the dragon so when i send the hoard they can attack the rear of the dragon first. you want the hoard to surround the dragon. if they are 3 deep in front of the dragon you will lose theriz. ofc, keep your theriz out of the lava. advice would be to practice on a vanilla dedicated server with no mods, anyone that is going to the fight has to attend 3 winning practice fights. thats basically what worked for us. counting practice and Official fights ive done Alpha Dragon 30+ times, and each fight is different. using this tactic we have never lost, and if done well the fight should be over right at the 2 minute mark. the last 2 fights i didnt follow my own rules by not taking enough players and not making sure all players had been to practice fights. through both fights we lost ttl of 31 theriz (including 16 25k/1.3k) and both yuty. we still won but it was at too great a cost.

    Couple of questions!?

    as @d1nk mentioned above, the wiki is a very good source of info -- and i totally understand how you would assume that pearls would be the best food for them. glad they're not tho, all that time in the ocean farming them just for food i'd be pretty "salty"....

    Couple of questions!?

    they will eat them but only when placed in their inventory, have accidentally left blk pearls on my squid many times after dropping meat for weight and found that they were happily snacking on the pearls. while the pearls are their preferred food for taming it makes no sense to continue to feed them afterwards -- black pearls have a food value of only 30 while raw meat has a food value of 50 -- also, unless you are spawning in the black pearls, raw meat is infinitely easier to acquire.

    [TheIsland] WCIF Scuba Tank?

    you need to be farming the desert loot crates on SE -- if you are getting nothing but junk from those tho it sounds like the admin has the loot tables messed up.

    Alpha Killer

    yes, saddle bp go up to 120 armor -- we have either a 104 or a 106 basil bp taken from what used to be the easy water cave (Cave of Lost Faith)

    Is magnifying glass useless?

    we used it all the time while taming crabs on Aberration -- many a crab were saved from my questionable catapult aiming skillz hahaha

    Tek cave and ascension questions

    we always use a ranged weapon to kite the gigas into lava. as many tames as can be mushed onto the platform will be teleported, up to 50. in practice ive had rex that fell off the platform be teleported anyways, but wouldn't advise trying it. we take 20-25 rex with decent saddles. 2 players drag the majority of the rex (aptly named RexLords - Gnome and Sega, thanks mates) behind the rest of the players as they take turns in lines of 3-4 clearing the cave with a yuty doing both buff and fear screams. cave cleaners wait at the blue room door and spam meat if needed while waiting for the rest of the rex. once regrouped its on to the platform - we group again before starting the fight -- shoot the Overseer with your weapon of choice while he has his force field down and use rex when he spawns into boss form. enjoy the cut scene
  10. and is an intended game mechanic and that means you trekked out to get alot of wood = risk
  11. but once you have a mated pair you have as many of that dino as you want in a pretty short period of time, especially given twins/triplets -- kill all other males (fine, just dont think you should get the same xp for killing a level 224 rex when the 224 rex you killed is a...baby...) and you will have more fert eggs than you know what to do with unless you are mass killing them just for the xp
  12. just sayin im still doin my full day hehehehe -- not implying you have been playing ark all day, but if you were my hats off to ya its my topic and if i want to engage a forum member to make sure there are no hard feelings over a misunderstanding that is my prerogative -- post as you will good sir im saying that killing babies in mass solely for xp gain is unintended. the prep work and whatever for those 100 eggs solely for the xp gained is nothing compared to the work and risk of gaining the same xp otherwise. you disagree?
  13. well you have it easy lmao im at work, moderating here, trying to keep up with this conversation, eating pizza and coordinating the repair of my washing machine that my wife cant seem to put a balanced load in (love you tho honey ) if only i were Arking atm hahahahaha
  14. i have not -- we have no use for them. i am not implying that baby dinos have no use or even that they shouldnt be killed if need be -- my opinion is that hatching 100 giga eggs to reach level 90 almost immediately is an unintended/exploitative game mechanic.
  15. the snarkiness was on my side mate -- all good tho, have fun and hope your tame works out
