  1. New Boss

    Someone has already offered underwater bosses? The water dino, I think, is not particularly useful, you need to somehow develop them so that people know the underwater world.
  2. I've played ark for about 700 hours, and 99.99% of that time I've played singleplayer. And for the entire time I've only attempted a cave once or twice and have never even touched the bosses. Farming for hours in order to get an army of rexes just to lose them all to a boss has just never appealed to me. However, I've been very bored with the game lately and have wanted to give bosses a try. So, as a noob to bosses, i want to know some tips on preparing for, and fighting bosses, especially as a solo player. 1. Would an army of rexes be enough to kill an alpha boss. Also, would the rexes have to be bred and have high quality saddles or can one or both of those be ignored (In other words: what's a General, reliable way to take down bosses)? 2. How hard is it to even be able to attempt a boss fight. How difficult will it be to get the requirements in order to summon the boss? 3. What are some tips for a solo player in a boss fight? 4. How painful are bossfights? Will they give me crippling anxiety as I watch my rexes get killed one by one? 5. Should I even use rexes? I've heard that megatheriums are good against the broodmother since its a spider, so I wonder if there are better alternatives for rexes. 6. Does ragnarok allow you to fight the bosses one at a time or do you have to fight multiple bosses in the same arena at the same time? 7. Do your dinos teleport back with you after you defeat the boss? Or do all your tames, no matter What, vanish after the fight? 8. What is the general process for breeding super rexes (or any dino for that matter). And should you breed the babies with their parents or should you only breed the parents? Tell me if I'm right: you find and perfect tame 2 lvl 150 rexes. Then I assume you breed them non-stop and only keep the ones with the better of the two stats.
  3. Me and my two friends have played ark a long time but we are much slower on progress because we play on mostly default settings (default difficulty, stats, resource gathering, etc) i tend to play in my own world a lot which is very similar say for a few increased options like spoil time, taming speed (not instantaneous still), and some utility stuff like cave building and flyers. We play on Xbox, single player and non-dedicated host sessions. So ive been looking at the bosses stats on the wiki (which btw severely needs updating) and looking at the numbers i dont see how even high level rexes and such can last against these bosses, my friend went on a test world to spawn some in and see, and the broodmother was dealing 20k damage in under a minute... So basically the question is has anyone beaten the bosses without changing any settings?
  4. When you go into arena, the dragon will fly away. This ensures you can not finish the bossfight, and you will lose all tames/items you took inside, nor will you keep any element! Tested on unofficial fresh server. We made a video to show you what happens:
  5. Boss arena broken?

    Hello! Me and my tribe just tried to do the bosses on ragnarok on our usual unofficial server, we got in to the arena just fine but only the Manticore spawned, we killed it and thought that the dragon would spawn in later but we just ended up waiting 17 minutes until the timer ran out and everything died, we couldn't do anything about it. Has anyone else had this problem? We want to do the bosses but we don't want a bug to take everything we have, is there a fix for this?
  6. Okay, Not everyone plays on the official servers, as not everyone is in the mood to deal with the atrocious rates, trolling, or likes to use mods and different setups, or just play in private with friends. Due the way the arena's, achievements etc are setup, you pretty much have no choice but to play the island. If you want to play the other maps, and get the boss fights to ascend etc, you're simply out of luck. So why not make it so, that regardless of the Ark, you can summon any of the bosses. The requirements can all remain the same, as every ark has all trophies etc. It just makes end-game way more viable for small servers/tribes regardless on the server/map they are playing. I mean not everyone has the ability to run 4 servers or more for every DLC in a cluster.
  7. Coordinates for Cool Places

    When the Boss Arenas came out, I thought it was a cool concept, but handled poorly. You had a limited time to kill the Boss, and an even shorter time to get your crap and leave. A disappointment with that is you don't really get to explore the Arena all that much. I searched online and found coordinates to the Island Boss Arenas, but couldn't find any for The Center or Scorched Earth. So, I decided to find them myself and put them here! Here's the Island Boss Arenas: Broodmother: -261227 239562 -70990 Megapithecus: -195200 -196800 -119300 Dragon: 233000 35000 -102300 The Center: Broodmother & Megapithecus: -205481 573754 101000 Scorched Earth: Manticore: -3560 7468 -148362 Use the setplayerpos command with these coordinates, and you can use the Arenas for whatever you like! Building bases, fighting Dinos, Roleplaying, anything to your heart's content! If you have any cool places for people to check out, why not add them to this post?
  8. -picks up jaw- Wow. Just wow. Now that is how you do a boss fight! Stages, evasion, minions, etc. Unlike the tank and spank of the other four bosses we had so far. I know my boss battles, I played World of Warcraft for years I have no idea how players will normally do it. I cheated my way through, but it looked like it would result in many deaths. As for the ending, I noticed that my jaw actually had dropped. It was amazing. I love it. Thank you WC for making this game. I posted before about the spectacular story told through the explorer notes. Now I found the last two. I just want a novel or movie of this stuff! Have that write make the script and you guys do the CGI. Easy right? lol That website with the countdown has to be the next expansion. Fall of 2017. Calling it. While I would suspect an aquatic theme, I do not think WC would simply just mess with the environment and call it quits. There has to be more. Yes, there are plenty of other biomes available though.
  9. Hello Survivors, For the last 2 months I have been working on breeding megatheriums. When the dossier was released I was starting boss fights with my tribe and the whole 20 rexes or 19 rex/1 yuty kinda felt boring to me. I was happy when they released the dossier as it mentionned their effectiveness towards insect and spiders. Breeding was a long process, the fact that they are mammals with an 8 hour gestation period was certainly a challenge. The 2x and 3x breeding events greatly helped. These Megatheriums have no stat mutation. Base health is 5920(35 points) and damage is 372.8(42 points). Gamma: Beta: I did not try alpha yet, Beta had most of the megas lose 30% health and 1 lost 70% health. I'm waiting on a second set of 19 before i try that one. Hope you enjoy!
  10. Ragnarok Bosses pathetically easy

    Hey all, I hate how easy the boss's are on our Ragnarok server. Its not even a challenge. People go in with rexs with no stat mutations and come out victorious. The most difficult part about a boss now is finding spino sails it would seem. So is there a way or a command line that I can use to crank them up? Any help would be appreciated.
  11. ToughLove Aug 17, 1:29 PM PDT We are playing on the Ragnarok map and we are trying to use the blue obelisk to summon boss's and the icons to select what boss are missing? We have left the area and came back, checked the other obelisks, restarted our games, restarted our server, and even checked to see if there was a server update. Nothing seemed to help. I loaded a single player " The island " and it showed the boss icons. So i decided to load a single player " Ragnarok " no icons. So i assume the problem is with the Ragnarok map in general. How long before this problem will be fixed?
  12. Yesterday (20th Aug 2017) I went in to confront the Alpha Manticore to see how hard it really was in Single Player. I brought 7 low level Wyverns, a Yutyrannus and a Daedon fully expecting not to come back. I was surprised to observe that: There was no timer during the boss fight. It ended in me running out of ammo and rockets and just giving up (100k health left on the beast) My dinos got knocked out regularly but only 1 of them was actually killed by the Manticore. The others by death worms when KO on the ground All Dinos woke up several times to have another go When I cheated 'KILL' 4 of my dinos made it back with me; 3 of them were still knocked out and took a few minutes to wake up! I was sitting on the Daedon most of the time and the Manticore could not, or would not hit me (good old piggy!) Primitive equipment: 1 rocket 600HP off, 1 sniper bullet 100HP, 1 assault rifle 20HP So my questions: Is the lack of a timer intentional for Single Player now? This means that with enough ammo the boss becomes very feasible (a LOT of ammo) Unconscious dinos used to get killed, is this a change for SP, or is this for MP as well? I read that Wyverns couldn't go into the Manticore arena any more; is that a difference between SP and MP? I had fun with this and under these conditions I think I could stand a chance to actually beat the beast with a better set of dinos, the timer was always my main concern when going at it solo.
  13. After patch 265, the summoning option from Ragnarok terminals has been completely removed.\ I contacted the Ragnarok developers regarding this issue, they said the ARK developers had disabled it, so im wondering when its going to be fixed, people have bases running on tek gens......
  14. Underwater Boss fight

    I'd like to see an underwater boss fight in the future to give the water tames more value. If you support the idea please comment. If enough people want it the devs world most likely oblige. Thanks
  15. Boss fights

    Hello, does anyone know when the boss fights on PS4 will be or if they already have been fixed. Really need to do the boss. So if anyone knows anything please say thanks
  16. As the title says, doing a normal boss fight farm on medium on the center, do it all the time. Another tribe decided to start the encounter... we got kicked out and all of our dinos died... is it supposed to be like this, or is it a glitch? Really unhappy now, lost our farm team
  17. The engrams for the boss fights are not visible in the transmitter or the obelisks, making boss fights impossible on the Ragnarok map.
  18. Dragon after 67% nerf

    Was sooo excited to read all the island bosses received a 67% nerf across the board. We got 10 people together, 1 yuty, and 12 rexes, all around 30k health and 850+ melee. We did all the things- dodge the fire balls, kills mobs, munch dragon when it landed. To our dismay the dragon ripped all of our tames to dealth. We use to do this boss over and over. Now not so much. Anyone know a good method? We back to compound bows and fab pistols?
  19. Hey guys I've heard it's not safe to do boss battles right now cause of some glitch giving them a buff making easy hard on official ps4 is this true were geared up and ready when we heard this
  20. My tribe did medium monkey twice, once yesterday and once today, the monkey did not drop element either time as it has been in the past week. We ended up getting just the 16 from Brood each time on medium. Two other tribes on our server also mentioned the same issue. 593 The Center.
  21. Boss Info

    the lvl of the broodMother/megapithecus/dragon flows on his stats (HP/Damages...)
  22. LF Boss Nerf confirmation

    I only saw single player was fixed in the patch notes. I was hoping I missed it or they forgot to include it. Can anyone confirm yes or no?
  23. Boss Stuff

    so if you had 3 tribes and if they all had 10 people and 10 rexes. if they each started the same boss at every obi at the same time what would happen?
  24. Hey there everyone. So I figured I'd toss this out here regarding the Allosaurus, my favorite creature in Ark.... Why they gotta be suck for endgame? You have potentially the most awesome Pack-Dino with a Bleeding ability, THOUSANDS times better maneuverability compared to the lumbering Rexes that are almost a necessity for literally everything in this damn game, and then Allos can have some insane DPS when bred right due to Pack Leader Boosts ... but cant gore bosses, which I understand because that would make the fight only 100seconds long (Gore does 1% health per second, and AI Allo Pack leaders spam it). But why not make it just do a percentage of it's damage over time? Or even make it a small amount that stacks up and caps? For example, Say an Allo Pack leader does 300 damage, and uses Gore on a boss. The first stack would deal about 20% of it's base damage, and each consecutive gore will add another stack, ramping up in damage so long as the Gore stacks are maintained. Or even allow non-pack leader Allos to get a Damage bonus when attacking it's Leader's Gore victim (something like 5% per stack)? I'm honestly sick of breeding big ole clumsy rexes for bossfights because they are the only safe thing to bring in. It's really boring and really stale. It'd be okay if you could bring in like 4-5 other creatures other than the Rexes and a Yuty or two, effectively being your dps dinos while the dumbass Rexes are just tanks. And on another note, why do all the creatures need to be spawned in a cluster raptor and keep people from organizing for the fight properly? ugh lol Anyways, just thought I'd throw my 2cents out there. Been breeding Allosaurs for about 300 hours total now and would really like to see them be viable past Beta / Alpha Brood >.>
  25. So I have done some research and am coming up empty handed. Like many others, I have tried to simulate a boss fight in single player mode to gain the experience of the fight before we try live on an official server. What I have come to find out what it was super easy, too easy. I started asking around about it and turns out there is a health reduction for single player bosses, and it's nearly impossible to replicate an official server boss fight. The question I have now is, what is the dragon boss hp on official servers easy and med? What are the mob levels for an easy and med dragon? Has anyone found a way to take this beast down other than a tank and spank? So far my method for successful completion easy is 18- 20k hp rexs with 1000 melee and two yuty. Battle cry until the aura is maxed out and knock him out during the first landing. This seems to work for an easy and med dragon with 432k and 864k hp.
