  1. Here is the rest of the loot drops, since beacons only drop outside not everything is included there, and these generally have better loot quality as well. https://ark.gamepedia.com/Loot_Crates

    RTX 2080 BSOD in Ark

    Your sense of humor is amazing ..... its the Windows 10 - October update not the Windows - 10 October update ..... i know it was a long shot but you know IT jokes are always kinda lame The Raytracing was already active, otherwise the Experimental DXR SDK would have been useless. Also nothing is using Ray tracing yet, so having it on or off on your OS or hardware for that mater would literally make 0 difference at this point (maybe after 17 Oct when that should start rolling out). Obviously a slightly different story for developers that are working on raytracing projects from the DXR SDK, but for us gamer it makes no difference atm. The issue atm is simply a driver conflict (and ark is not the only game that has it atm, and also games that are not on UE4 are causing it), give it a week or so and it should be fixed, maybe sooner if your lucky.

    How can they try an update from 10 October it's not even 10 October yet ........... 😎 Not sure where you get that the October patch should enable RTX stuff, not seeing anything in the notes from said patch. I think your confusing it with windows now having official support for DX ray-tracing that is no longer in the experimental phase. In general your all just going to have to wait until Nvidia solves what ever driver call is causing this issue, thats the downside of early adoption, stuff wont work properly. If you want to help send you findings to Nvidia so they can resolve the issue faster.

    Broodmother Tips

    With those kinda stats changes, you might just as well walk into the arena alone, and use a admin command to kill it. That is my personal opinion though, im sure those 2 rexes will kill it in just a few hits.
  5. Nice, although i was hoping for it to be a clean line, it kinda makes sense it wasn't, regardless great effort either way ill most likely wont ever have the endurance to do that.

    Best Dinos for tek cave?

    The OP doesn't seem to understand a lot of things tbh, but they have been pointed out enough i would say, though the one part everyone seems to be interested in is how effective they really are in the cave itself.
  7. Who ever manged to tame/breed that line, has got to be filthy rich at this point, if not burned out from the effort of getting it I live in the isolation of solo playing, so i tend to forget that trading is a legit game aspect on servers 🙂 Just out of curiosity though, is that a non-mutated line ?
  8. 71+ points in health will do that, its highly unlikely that your ever going to see a stat roll that high though, but also not entirely impossible. It's more likely he is playing on the old dino stats still (some people prefer the pre-nerf stats), or that he mutated the heck out of that line considering the melee is also off the charts (78+ points). As for why i still play Ark, despite all its flaws, its simple really. Every time i want to play, there is something i can do that i enjoy doing, if i'm not in the mood to grind i don't have to and get to play with met pets all day. Also as many other have mentioned, i get to play it the way i want to play it, so iff i dont have the time to protect my tames for long periods of time i just speed up the taming process to match my time dedication.

    Best Dinos for tek cave?

    Since i had several spawns go into the lava without me even doing anything, id say the odds are quite good on that one tbh. And besides that everyone knew the diplo's are useless in boss fights, since they do 0 dmg, so there push back on cave trash would be there only redeeming value.

    The point of Diplo's would be to ride them in the cave part, and push trash into the lava, something i can see working in certain parts of the cave if the spawns are in your favor.

    Best Dinos for tek cave?

    Allo's are great in the Tek-Cave, and there speed is rather good when having to run down the Overseer at the end of the whole cave part. You really do want to breed dino's for this, even if you are playing in singleplayer with the singleplayer settings (and it sounds like the OP does), dmg output during the fight is rather high depending on the difficulty overseer you are aiming for. If you cant fight the dragon and win, you will not be able to take on the overseer, you might be able to clear the Tek Cave but you will fail on the overseer. I am intrested on how the dilpo's do in the cave part though, i never had decent enough diplo's to try that tactic.

    Is solo beta dragon possible?

    I do fully support the above mentioned Theri approach, still have to try that one myself sometime though. I focused on the (Tek-)Rex approach for all bosses (the lights on the tek-rexes where amazing ), did it with official stats on a LAN server to simulate a Official Server setting on all difficulties. And despite having 55 points in health and melee as a base stat i still had quite a few losses with the Beta and Alpha Dragon(well mostly Alpha though only 2 or 3 on Beta because i failed a bit with shouts and pig healing, food value per item really matters if you want them to keep on healing ). The cakes and smaller size of the Theri's makes a big difference with the dragon, and farming lvl 150's for decent stats is a lot easier on The Island map, compared to the Rex approach. The only potential downside is the cost of the cakes because you going to need a lot of them, and even that isn't that big of a deal to begin with.

    level Getting 150, feasible?

    I would say engram points, but then i realized you dont get much past level 118, so i guess the stats (like extra weight) could be a valid reason to simply want it.

    This giga bugged or...?

    I agree, some people just like to kill things, dunno why but that is how i know it even possible.

    This giga bugged or...?

    Nope you wont have to lose any, dont forget the dragon boss is a lot harder, and you can do Gamma on official stats without losses if you know what your doing. Saddles do make a great impact, but if you have 16 to 18 boss rexes bred up, its very likely your going to have high level saddles laying around anyway
