  1. I think the game tries to justify the 75 percent of redundant tames by using the excuse of "Early game tames", but thats funny because other than maybe your first time roleplaying nobody sits at low levels and even if you don't powergrind right away you can just buy the saddles you need from other tribes. Its not like there is a level mechanic blocking you from buying high level saddles, hell, the game even promotes it since primitive saddles are absolute trash compared to blueprint saddles. I just consider the redundant Dinos as RP flavor.
  2. You can cheese it’s ai by kiting it towards one of the cliffs with a flyer and just standing there, the forest Titan just goes brain dead half the time and you can just lay into it.
  3. They do drop from osds, but they are ungodly expensive and extremely unpractical since the mek modules take durability damage every time you cryopod meks or take the saddle off. Anything other than primitive is a waste of resources.
  4. Either in the snow dome or on the east side of the city, but they are rare spawns. Here is the spawn map for reference. https://ark.gamepedia.com/Spawn_Map_(Extinction)
  5. All the saddle platform creatures need a buff, the saddle platform structure limit is pathetic on vanilla settings. All you can pull off are some pretty unappealing looking boxes on their back with maybe a work bench and a fridge. These platform creatures should actually be able to be small mobile bases for the time and kibble it takes to tame them, especially since there is no mutton equivalent for herbivores.
  6. Farm up a bunch of narcotics, catch a ovis, and use the narcotics and the mutton to tame a Giga as quickly as you can. Gigas are the best tames on this map, they can traverse all the caves, fight Titans, and farm OSDs solo up to red. Putting your energy into getting a Giga will let you speed farm OSD loot, and if you get a grinder you can get massive amounts of materials from said loot.
  7. I think Extinction is the best, its the easiest map to progress to tek tier and farm high level equipment and resources on solo. Bosses are fought in the overworld so you don't have to worry about this games horrible coding killing an entire army of rexes with a bad teleport and Gigas can be used in all the caves for easy access. Extinction also has perma day outside of the domes, which is great. I use Extinction as my single player hub.
  8. The old trick is to use a Daedon or Snow Owl to heal your Wyvern every time it near death from starvation.
  9. Rex for most island bosses, though the dragon will shred them on any difficulty. 30K Hp 500-600 Melee with 70ish armor saddles is doable for most the gamma bosses. Like I said before though, expect to take losses on the Dragon. Bring a Yutyrannus for you to ride and buff the rexes with the courage roar.
  10. The only way to tame them without taking tremendous penalty to effectiveness is with the shoulder pet exploit. Throw a shoulder pet on the ground near a basilisk and before it aggros on the pet cover the shoulder pet with a foundation. Drop the eggs and just get ready to wait for it to tame up as it stays aggroed on the shoulder pet stuck in the foundation. If you don’t do this the snake will run off or burrow and lose effectiveness.
  11. Sorry for the late response, but no, they never fixed it. As usual they ignore known issues. I've cleared them all before and the still eventually respawn underground.
  12. They spawned inside the map mesh, admin command ghost and grab the glitched eggs and hopefully they will spawn at a better nest.
  13. You can transfer drake eggs or magmasaur eggs into the map, so technically they are tamable on crystal isles, but if you are on a no transfer server you are poop out of luck
  14. You guys do realize the nooblets method of starving them by getting them to low health is an exploit right? Don’t use that as an excuse for the normal method of taming being broken.
