Flak Armor

Flak Armor (4/5)



  1. kapros are easy to sort out and heres my, have your tame on follow and nuetral, and it can kill the kapro, kapros dont have much health. i have an asc pistol and shotty which can kill a 150 in 3 shots of the pistol, and one shot of the shotty. as for swarms, a torch will easily take care of swarms, that and a capable tame, raptors and their AOE pounce attack are great for swarms. as for the arctic. it really depends on your luck in whats around you when you spawn. i tend to build in high places where stuff cant get me, worse i had to fear was yutys, but without their carnos they are not that dangerous. i tend to just lead it to a theriz and it dies soon after.
  2. my friend, some people like a challenge, and dont just wanna sit and cower on a sea stack until they get to metal tier. i love a challenge, one of the reasons why i play ark. yes the artic is not easy, for most, but experienced players can easily survive in the artic when starting off.
  3. nah, i find artic to be the easiest and funnest biome to live in, bog after that.
  4. this is gonna be a doozy. so i finally managed to get genesis on my PS4, even tho fate seemed determine to prove otherwise. i loaded in the map for the first time, crashed. This happened 4 more times before i finally loaded into the bog, i died and decided to respawn in the arctic, crashed. so i reset my world, made a ne character and started again. i spawned in the bog and made my way to the dodoball mission, there i slowly made a makeshift wooden base surrounded by spikes. i tamed a raptor, it got kaproed, tamed another, it got kaproed, this went of for some time. i'd tame a raptor, and it'd just get grabbed by a kapro and run off with it. i finally managed to tame 4 decent lvl raptors, 150, 150, 145. the 130 had no good stats and was a nice blue, so i made it my main. after spending a good hour leveling it, i managed to get it to 300 weight and just over 2000HP, hopefully it'd survive a trek through the bog. while out, i came across a pack of 3 high lvled parasaurs. tamed em all up and i made them pack mules. i found a good metal spot nearby. took the paras and the raptor out to get some, came back with all tames just able to move. after i got to flak armor and primitive guns. i prepped for a trek to the arctic. i planned to establish a base there. i plan to do that next time i play. my plan is to tame a saber or something more viable for long distance travel. something that can carry a decent amount, can handle itself without nearly dying, and fight back. might go for a bear if i find a good one.
  5. ummm, the image showing the new creature is a bit freaky, kind of unexpected from WC. to make an image like that. new brown undies affect monster incoming.
  6. i suggest playing unofficial server, great servers and much better than official ones. however im assuming the pillar issue was because you were playing on official.
  7. i've heard that the mining tool from gen is good at collecting element dust, but i have not seen heard or tried it myself. from what a friend claims. its the best way to gather element dust from the tables, chairs and what not on extinction.
  8. so the day of reckoning came. whether it was for me and my deino army or the dodorex. i had tamed a quetzal and spent a few hours building a pen that i could carry my deinos on, the maximum was about 30ish. the plan was i would ride on the queztal which also had some turrets on it, whistle the deinos at the dodorex and they would charge off of the platform and attack. well about 10 minutes later and he is already dead. only a few died in the process and the rest were fairly fine, a few were badly hurt, but other than that we were unscathed. i decided to bring a deadon along on the next battle hoping this might make the deinos less likely to die, i also considered bringing a yuty along but that would have been too much of a hassle. after about 10 more nights of killed the dodorex i figured this was getting too easy, the rate at which i was loosing the deinos was much slower than the rate i could produce them at. i was talking to a friend on discord when he suggested i summon in a few dodorexes at once to battle, it seemed that the least amount of deinos i can use and succeed in a battle against the dodorex was 10, so i figured for every 10 deinos i would spawn in one dodorex. so the battle would be 100 deinos against 10 dodorexes. holy sh*t was it an amazing fight. i used whistle groups to whistle each group onto a different dodorex, the deaths were insane, but somehow my deinos won, granted i had lost much more than i had anticipated. but i won. i kept none of the spoils i got from the dodrexes i had spawned in. but now im wondering what i should fight next. maybe a titan or one of the bosses. on a side note after the announcement of bugs being breedable in the upcoming update, i spent a few hours taming mantis and arthros, hunting for the best stats. i feel like arthros are about to become way more OP than WC had thought they would be.
  9. when you have done as much breeding as i have it become as easy as taming something. also since i was on single player i done what i usually do to make it as fast as breeding on servers. i used slomo and players only. ik it sounds like cheating but when you play offline it gets annoying.
  10. so i decided to return to ark and give it another go. first thing i considered doing was making my way through to beat all the bosses first. then i realized the fear event would be around the corner, so i decided to plan on ways i could defeat the dodorex. as i was talking to a friend he suggested using creatures that have bleed effects, my first thought was allos or carnos, but my friend suggested deinos, then being smaller and potentially harder to hit and over all easier to breed. i figured sure why not. so i spent 2 whole days grinding wild deino nests, using a method i commonly use when hunting for OP stat deinos. by the end of it i had really OP stats for all the needed stats. health, melee, stam and weight. i then bred all the stats into one good pair, i also grinded lvl 5 deinos until i got the worst oxygen possible, i'd never spent so much time in my life looking for such a low stat. i put in the oxygen to to make sure the final pairs level was lower, meaning more mutations to be put in before lvl cap. i then made 4 breeding pools. health, stam, melee and wieght. all with 20 females and 4 males each. this would allow for a sufficient mount of eggs produced meaning mutation occuring more commonly. when i got the first male with the desired mutation for that pool, i would swap it out with the dad, and continue this process repeatedly, after hours apon hours of breeding, eg collecting, mass genocide on babies and cutting up their maimed bodies i had the final results of 40 health, 40 melee, 30 stam and 20 weight mutations. combining them all into one amazingly OP deino breeding pair. i then proceeded to breed a total of 100 deinos all fully imprinted and fitted with the best deino saddles i could obtain. i also bred a decent yuty which i plan to have on the side lines and boost the deinos even more. to test them out i took them out to fight a giga on ragnarok. about 20 died but the giga was killed. so i now have a goal of making 200 fully imprinted saddled deinos. hopefully i can get it done before fear launches, if worse comes to worse i can always use some mutated carnos i bred on the side as extra force. im debating on whether i should ride a deino or fight the dodorex in a mek.
  11. wrf wc, only 2 creatures, i can name at least 5 creatures which direly need a tlc megalodon mosasaur plesiosaur carno bronto quetzal pteranodon mammoth spider onyc dilo icthy with such a large roster of creatures that NEED a freakin tlc, you only chose 2. i bet ya they are not even ones that need a tlc.
  12. not complaining, just stating the truth, but now that we have access to flyers with mounted firearms, alphatribes will leave ground tames and reach to the skys, thankyou WC, thank you.
  13. anyone else see the gun on its back, well, here comes another pvp destroying flyer, this time, with guns on its back.
  14. ok so the last few days have been hectic on the server. our tribe is at war with another tribe (nothing toxic) because i accidentally killed one of their people and a bloodstalker. in my defense they were near our base and i was a bit worried so i took care of him. so after the first attempted attack on our main base we realized we needed more defenses. yes we have a lot of turrets as is. but we do not want to loose our base. so Riley and i went out to tame some turtles. holy crap does it take forever, the 180 turtle we found which had very high hp (using HLN-A) it would be constantly attacked by sharks and the swarms would occasionally hit it. i was sitting on a sea stack hauling any fish out of the water and shotgunning the occasional shark, at one point some turd decided to shoot our turtle as he was nearly tamed. after a while i left to get a snack. came back to see Riley had tamed it up. Riley went back and got the breeding pair we had used before. we added the health into a new pair and began breeding them. we saved a few mutation we ended up with and combined them into triplets 2 females and 1 male. we bred them a few more and ended up with 10 turtles ready to be used as turret tanks. when back at base we killed about 50 rexes each with the turtles (yes we have that many rex eggs) pumped all into HP. we then made some acs saddles that had around 100 armor which i dont remember us getting. they were super expensive but worth it. i spent forever killing bugs in the bog with a frog and sloth and riley was smashing rocks like mad lad. Skull and Joe both grinded bullets. each turtle had about 20-30 heavy turrets on their back as well as one mounted miningun and one mounted rocket turret. we called in a few favors and managed to get another tribe of 4 to join us. we devised a plan to attack their base as TIB had scouted it out earlier and found a weakness, they supply their turrets with 2 main generators. and each can be easily destroyed with a well placed rocket. the plan was to use well placed rockets to destroy the generators and then use magmasaurs to brake down the metal walls. the turtles would act as defense for our group as they would quickly kill off any hostiles with their turrets, as well a tanking a few hit along the way. we had enabled fliers for the first 24 hours of the war to allow for scouting and possibly resource transferring to be done easily, we used this to our advantage as we had tamed some argents and tapejars. btw we used a tek teleporter to transfer the stuff, we aint spending forever walking 10 turtles across a biome. we sent 3 turtles in to tank the bullets and draw fire while Riley while holding my in the argents talons flew from another way. i had 3 rocket in case of missed shots. we came across a problem, when i blew up the generator room the turrets did not turn off, so we figured they had more gens around the base. we improvised and used some turtles and magmasaurs with high HP to tank the hit. we had a bunch of pigs sitting on some turtles and 2 yuty's courage roaring, we used ambergris on the magmas to heal them fast. while the rest of us shot at the gate. we eventually made a hole into their base. but we still had turrets firing. so we shot a few magma balls and managed to brake most, we sent in a trio of magmasaurs ridden by me, Riley and skull. a lot of their tames must have been in cryos as their were barely any in the base. we spewed magmaballs everywhere destroying their base. the tribe eventually realized they were being raided when someone spotted us attacking their base. we eventually flattened the base to the ground and took what resources we felt we had earned for the raid. all in all we took a lot of their resources like metal, gun powder, polymer and paste as well as about 1k element. we left the rest of their stuff in some vaults that were code locked. i messaged them the code and they got their stuff back. i think that will be the last we see of them for a while. again this is not a toxic war. we done it for a but of fun and they accepted to the terms that either tribe can attempt to wipe the others base. btw i have been typing this over the past 3 days when i have had the chance. a bit of an update. we have had complaints from small tribes about us wiping the other big tribe as they are now worried we will wipe them for fun. i reassured them as technically the supervisors of the server we dont wipe small tribes, if they desire pvp raiding with us there are restrictions in place for both sides. the other alpha tribe still play but they have moved off of gen back to rag. i got word from allies on other maps that they are pretty salty about our win and planning a full scale raid on some of our other bases. again its part of the server rules that they can go this so long as the targets accept. we are deciding on whether we will accept or not. anyway over the past few days i have been working on a magmasaur breeding base. its not done yet but hopefully it will work for what i plan to do. also really cant wait for crystal isles this winter
  15. ok well message me and i can invite you to our discord server.
