Keresdrakon - The Apex Of The Scorching Skies
RaptorRapture19 posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveWhat is Keresdrakon? Keresdrakon is a species of Azhdarchid, it was around the size of a Quetzal, would've been most likely an opportunistic carnivore. It lived during the Cretaceous period with what is now known as Brazil. Why should vote for Keresdrakon in Scorched Earth? Keresdrakon would be a great addition to Scorched, being a new large flyer which can act as a tent during sandstorms and heatwaves, Male Keresdrakon will be the fighters of the species providing a unique flyer experience, whilst the females of the species care for babies whilst also producing a less optimal Wyvern milk for Wyvern babies. More will be explained on the male and female Keresdrakon further into the post. Keresdrakon Dossier Wild: The scorching sands looming hunter, Keresdrakon, as large as the Islands native species Quetzalcoatlus. Unlike the Quetzal, Keresdrakon prizes itself in its adept aerial prowess, while you may be fooled to think its a slow hunter, I’ve seen this creature fight Wyverns and overtake them in aerial combat. Tamed: Keresdrakon is a valuable tame for any tribe on the scorching sands. When there’s a sandstorm or heatwave, Keresdrakon will provide shelter for you and your tribe mates. Most tribes I’ve seen use Keresdrakon to fight Alpha Wyverns to get the milk from within it. Behaviour Whilst not at a nest you can see wild Keresdrakon looming high in the skies, unlike the Quetzal, they are aggressive and will attack if you get too close. When at a nest, you can find pairs of Keresdrakon which normally won't attack unless provoked. Taming To tame Keresdrakon, you must climb to the peaks of Scorched Earth, there you will find pairs trying to finish their nests. At first you will notice its an ordinary nest with nothing special, but that's where you come in, you have to help make the nest, you will need Wyvern talons and Rex arms, as well as plenty of wood. You are first prompted with the female asking for wood, depending on the level of the female depends on the amount of wood. After you have given the female wood, you must give the male your trophies as he will recognise you as a capable hunter, much like itself. After those few things are done, the female will promptly lay an egg, and you can pick up the egg. Combat To fight a Keresdrakon, it is advised to chain bola them due to their lack of ground movement then use a high damaging tame or weapon and start hurting it. Attacks Primary: Beak attack, you can rapidly press it for DPS or hold it down to perform an alternate attack which skewers smaller dinos, instantly killing them, or causes large damage and bleed to anything over a certain carry weight. Secondary: Barrel Roll which causes large damage and knockback. Tertiary: While grounded, this attack will make Keresdrakon slap with its wing causing heavy knockback and a brief stun. While airborne this attack will just be a grab to move players or tames under a certain carry weight. Male and Female Mechanics Male: The male unlike the female is more damaging, with a unique rage mechanic where when you take lots of damage the Keresdrakon will enter a rage mode which does not dismount you but it increases the males damage output as well as its speed, turning it into a power house of a flyer. Female: The female is there to care for your babies, imprinting on them for you whilst you're out of base (this does not work if you are offline), she also likes to collect other species eggs as if they were here own, she organises them into a nice neat pile, if you give the female a Wyvern talon, she produces milk for that species of Wyvern, so fire talon means Fire Milk. Roles Boss Fighter: Due to Keresdrakon's power, using a few for the Manticore fight should make it easier. Taming Mount: Due to the 2 seater saddle, you can have a tribemate shoot from the back to knockout other creatures. Fertilised Egg Collector: Stated above, the female collects eggs. Milk Provider: Stated above, the female produces milk based on what Talon you give it. Travel Mount: Due to its stamina pool and speed, Keresdrakon makes for an excellent travel mount. Boss Tribute Farmer: Due to the males power, hunting down Wyverns and other apex's should be fairly easy. Wyvern Egg Stealer: Being able to out manoeuvre and kill Wyverns, Keresdrakon makes for the ultimate nest raider. Dogfighter: Due to the speed and strength behind Keresdrakon, you can easily fight off multiple Wyverns without much worry. Boss Saddle: The saddle provides a unique take which shows what you need for each boss fight without needing to head to a terminal to constantly check. Mobile Shelter: When there is a Sandstorm or Heatwave, you can land and use make shelter option which make Keresdrakon, cover you with its wings, this provides the shelter buff.

Teratophoneus - Monstrous Murderor
akeef posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveThe teratophoneus lived during the Cretaceous period. They were recently discovered and has the name of the ‘Monstrous Murderor’. Ability 1: As the dinosaur had strong jaws for a harder bite, the dinosaur could have a bleed or stun attack on opposing dinosaurs. Ability 2: Coming from the same family of the yutyrannus and tyrannosaurus rex, the dinosaur could have a fear roar or a team boosting raur as they hunted in packs. Ability 3: From the nickname ‘Monstrous Murderor’, there could be a rage buff or meter to increase the damage corresponding to the number of dinosaurs killed. Taming and saddling: For the taming, it should be a knockout tame and should feed on prime meat but after tamed, the taming effectiveness could be like that of a carcharodontosaurus by riding the dinosaur and killing dinosaurs. For the saddling, it should be at level 70+ as the dinosaur should be stronger than an allosaurus.
The Albertosaurus Mini boss of the ARK
jayday222 posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveWILD The Albertosaurus can often be found surrounded by a pack of troodons these two have a symbiotic relationship with the Albertosaurus fighting off larger predators and the troodons defending the Albert while it sleeps at night. ABILITIES The Albertosaurus can compress and expand its spinal chord ranging from the size of a bary to the size of an allo in its small form the Albertosaurus can jump long distances sprint at high speeds and has a stealth that reduces the aggro of other dinos and gives a small damage reduction, however this form has rather lackluster weight and health with only average melee. In its large form the Albertosaurus has a bleed effect on its attacks as well as a stomp attack that will slow down nearby creatures once this form will also have a super attack similar to a shadowmane. This form lacks stamina and speed but has great melee and health as well as an average weight. TAMING To tame the Albertosaurus you have to sneak up on it while it is sleeping killing the entire troodon pack then you access the Albert's inventory placing an artifact inside upon doing this the Albertosaurus will go into a rage changing into its large form then chasing the survivor then to finish the taming the survivor has to drop hunter trophies as the Albertosaurus gives chase then the Albertosaurus is yours.
Crocodylus Imperator (Saltwater Apex)
Shinohebi posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveGiant Saltwater Crocodile thought of to give people a reason to explore and brave the dangers of the oceans on maps where there may be less reasons. I imagine somewhere between Sarcosuchus and Kaprosuchus in stance (Less like a dog, but not quite lying flat) with more well developed front and back limbs than a traditional Croc. I envision the size to compete with Mosasaurus. This is not exclusively accurate to Prehistoric Crocs, being much larger and having added functionality, but I really do think that more reasons to explore Ark's oceans would be a welcome addition. Croc is based on The largest species of Crocodile to exist (Sarcosuchus Imperator) And the common genus for the Saltwater Crocs (Crocodylus porosus) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saltwater_crocodile / https://www.britannica.com/animal/Sarcosuchus-imperator Left click (basic attack) will cause the Croc to swipe with its front forelimbs, however holding the button down will charge a poweful bite. Releasing left click after 20% charge will cause the Croc to clamp down, either causing a massive shockwave and bleeding, or allowing the Croc to grapple a target, thrashing it to inflict heavy damage. Right click will be a charged slide on ground (Similar to a Maewing's slide animation) or a burst of forward momentum in water. C key will be a tail spin, stunning large ocean predators like Mosa and Tuso, but just inflicting damage to smaller ocean creatures. It can use this to escape a Tuso's grapple. Eggs of Croc will be used like Gacha crystals, after it lays one, collect it and consume to grant a random selection of rare deep sea materials (Organic Polymer, Angler Gel, Black Pearls etc) Warning will still display on fertilised eggs. Must be hatched in water. Baby Crocs will 'pew' when distressed (The noise Baby Crocs make in real life that sounds like a space gun) Which will cause nearby Crocs you have tamed to automatically attack the source of the Baby's distress, regardless of it's set Behaviour. It can be found both in deep and shallow water but only spawns far away from land and can aggro you at any depth. Taming method would either be a deep ocean Egg tame or a standard knockout tame.
