      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

Found 60 results

  1. So tonight I put my dimes on wander in a small 3x3 pen made of stone fence foundations and stone railings. I was afk, planning on coming back for the eggs in a moment. When I turned back to the pen there was a fertilized giga egg in the pen. I picked it up, but it says egg health is 0%. Out of curiosity, I tossed it down on my ACs and it's now incubating. I've no idea what I expect to come out of it (if anything) when it finishes, but I wanted to know if anyone else had run into any similar situations. As a side note, I don't have a giga on this server so I've really no idea how this could have happened.
  2. Hi, Im from "EU-PVE-OFFICIAL-Ragnarok389". I found that my giga stuck on the ground and there are nothing nearby. I cant get it out even I use the "follow","attack" command. Also, we are not able to ride on it. What can we do? The coordinate is (23.2, 72.4) in Ragnarok. Hope someone could help us. Thanks.
  3. Giga Raising

    I’m looking for advice on raising gigas on official PVE.
  4. Giga Tlc

    I "really" want the Giga to be remodeled hopefully made a bit smaller change the stats and make it span in scorched earth. I want it to gain new abilities such as when it roars it causes creatures to take 2% damage as a trauma affect. It should spawn on scorched earth because it's fossils were found in a dessert like are like the spino. It should get a new model because it feels rubber like and needs better color regions and it needs to be faster and it's walking animation should be redone like the rexes showing the weight of the creature.
  5. My tribemate and I have been breeding squids and gigas since legacy and up to now in new servers and always hit 100% on all of them. We play in official PVE so no boosters and such. Now with the imprint timer change a few months ago, my tribemate was excited to hatch a squid, get it to 100% imprint without losing sleep. He hatched it right when the imprint timer changed to 8 hours, but despite always been on time, coming online 15 mins before care and bringing all imprint kibble with him, the imprint always gets lower than the growth. As in the imprint is 3% for 3 cares and for 4th care its only 2%. The imprint gets higher than growth for the 3rd care but on 4th care its lower than growth again. After accepting the fact that this squid won't hit 100%, a few days later they release a patch claiming to fix the imprint since some dinos can't hit 100%. Our squid was about half grown by then but still after being always on time the imprint per care was the same 3% then 2% on 4th care. The squid ended up with only 97% imprint. You can see the disappointment and frustration with investing 2 weeks time and not hitting 100%. Thinking it was only because the patch was released when squid was half grown, we hatched another but still same thing happened and only hit 97% before full grown. THIS IS AFTER THE PATCH THAT CLAIMS TO FIX THIS. Now I wanted to test it on gigas since i'm the one who breeds gigas. I hatched 4 gigas YESTERDAY (AS IN AFTER THE PATCH), and same as squid it was 3% imprint for the 1st 3 cares. but on the 4th care, when it was 11.6% maturity, my imprint only gave 2%, so my imprint was 11% while growth was 11.6%. So I already know that it will just be the same as the squid and they won't hit 100%. People might say that they are op anyway and 97% is practically 100% but we do not waste our time always doing care on time just so we get 97%. if we knew it was always 97% i just wouldnt go on time anymore since i can waste 8 hours since it wont count on the last care. Should we just accept this bug and always just get 97% on the biggest dinos where the imprint counts the most? Please fix this since its been going on since the imprint timer patch release @Jatheish @Jen @Chris tagging admins too and hopefully you let the higher ups know as well @GP @invincibleqc
  6. Recently on my private server my friends and I built a base near the lighthouse in the highlands on ragnarok. At first there were Gigas spawning like normal in the area, but recently we have stopped seeing them and we've even searched their other spawns pretty thoroughly. Have they stopped spawning because of our base near their spawn in the highlands? And if so, is there a way for us to increase the number of gigas that spawn?

  8. Can I kill this giga?

    So my friend's base/tames are being harassed by a wild Giga in the area. I suspect this is a lv. 4 Giga that I've seen roaming the area, but I could be wrong as the place my friend reported seeing the dino is pretty far from where this particular Giga is. My question is: do you think I can kill it? I have 2 gigas of my own, but they're wild tames and have no imprinting on them. They are mate boosted, but one is around lv. 140 and the other is approaching lv. 100, and they both have primitive saddles and around 110-117.5% melee damage. I also have a rather OP argy that I've been raising that has over 1000% melee damage, 8000 health, and can easily solo alpha rexes without problems as well as several good ocean tames, a strong couple of wolf packs, and a rex that can help also. I'm pretty sure all that can beat it, but I've seen the stats of wild Gigas as well as read the unsuccessful attempts of people far better than me try and beat "weak" wild gigas and get curbstomped. What do you guys think? EDIT: Also, first time on the forums. Hello everyone!
  9. Ragnarok Giga spawns

    I've been playing the same Ragnarok single player game for about 6 weeks and in that time I have spent much of it searching for a Giganotosaurus. I've seen a total of one and it was when I started the game, I logged in the green Highlands and one was just about 100 feet away. Sadly as I was levelling I saw the Giga randomly just "die" as it was casually walking around. Nothing attacked it or anything, it just died. Since then I have been unable to find any Gigas (or Titans). I have also seen this random "death" effect on Wyverns and waterlife. I realise Gigas are considered a rare spawn but I have been searching practically six weeks in total now with no results. I have used the command "destroywilddinos" multiple times throughout this search also, on the hopes it would help spawns. I'm wondering if anyone else is having such trouble? I hear most people have 1-2 gigas on the map most of the time and that they may share spawns with Quetzels. I have also tried farm killing Quetzals but again, nothing. I'm tempted just to restart the game from scratch just to see if my singleplayer is bugged. That being said I would like some input from anyone about Gigas and how often they should spawn. I doubt very much that six weeks and no spawns (note I play every day) is a normal thing. Thanks in advance. Azarrahk.
  10. looking for high level giga mutation, and another breeding tribe to work with. We have a server and a good amount of mutated tames. Just looking for colors we might not have.
  11. Rex/Allo/Giga TLC Pass

    Rex First off I want to say that the updated Rex model looks great! Glad to see it finally getting some love. The only Tweak that I might suggest in that department is maybe give him an overbite so that only his upper teeth are visible when his mouth is closed. Not a big deal though. More importantly though, we need to talk about his abilities. Right now he's just not really good at much of anything. Basically he's a mid-tier tank-n-spank who is treated as if he were a top-tier tank-n-spank. Let's go through the jobs that are relevant to him and see who is actually best for each role: Killing stuff quickly: Giga Killing wild Gigas/Titanosaurs: Giga Meat harvesting: Giga Overall Tank-n-Spank: Giga. A good Rex will have a bit more tank than Giga, but not nearly enough to make up for the lack of spank. Tank: Herbivores, Golems, ect... Killing the Spider boss: Megatherium Killing the Ape boss: Rex is probably a decent enough choice for this one, though Theri is probably just as good as him, if not better. Killing the Dragon boss: Theri Wearing a Tek saddle: Right now this is the one thing that actually makes the Rex relevant, and admittedly it is cool. However I hope that his status as the only Tek ground unit is only a temporary band aid and not actually the intended balancing factor. It would do an injustice to Rex because he would be the only one pathetic enough to need a Tek saddle, and it would do an injustice to all other ground units because they would be denied having their own Tek saddles. What I would suggest: What needs to happen is he needs to be the king of tank-n-spank. Giga can still be the walking nuke who kills stuff the quickest and harvests meat most efficiently. Golems and Brontos can still be the tanks. But for overall tank-n-spank a good Rex should be the undisputed king. One way that this could be done if you don't want to boost his base stats could be to activate a 'King of Carnivores' buff when you use his roar. It would buff his damage and resistance for a time, but also come with a long cooldown. Allosaurus You almost got this one right. He has a unique skill which is appropriate for the species and which gives him a unique niche as the sauropod slayer. Well, it would. You know, if Giga weren't a thing. What I would suggest: The answer to this one is simple. Have the bleed do extra damage specifically vs sauropods so that he can take them down faster than a Giga would. Giga Well he's advertised as being the high-risk-high-reward dino, but let's be honest about this. These days there's basically no risk at all to using him. Which I'm fine with, but he will always be in a weird and unbalanced spot if we try to pretend that he's something that he's not. If we don't want the rider to ever actually get killed by their Giga then the mechanic should just be reworked into something else entirely. What I would suggest: As I said, Rex should take the status as the apex 'warrior' who has the tank-n-spank needed for a longer battle. Giga, on the other hand, can be the apex berserker/assassin who comes in, deals devastating burst damage to an unsuspecting foe, then gets out before it's too late. The rage mechanic can be completely reworked to fit this play style. It can be a player-activated skill that temporarily gives the Giga a huge buff to his damage and stamina, but makes him tired and weak after the rage wears off.
  12. [Fixed in v275.4] The silent Giga nerf

    Idk if my previous post got deleted or it just didnt create, but gigas got a huge nerf with rhe abberation update, assault rifles and shotguns now enrage gigas with just a few bullets My ascendant pump action shotgun with 212% weapon samage enraged my giga with an ascendant saddle in 2 shots My friend used an assault rifle with 170 weapon damage and enraged a giga in 7-8 shots These were tested on an official PVP server on xbox, anyone else having issues woth this? Was this supposed to happen? Wildcard you guys got a bit of explaining to do
  13. Rex levels

    Hey I just traded for a Rex that was breeded and it’s base level was 266 with +31 levels ready to go as i am writing this I have used all the levels (and a few more) and my Rex’s stats currently stand at HEALTH: 25k STAMINA:3k Melee:575 I still have more levels to come so what should I invest them in to? And is this a good Rex? (Current lvl 306)
  14. Mutations?

    So I have been breeding giga's non-stop for a few days now (Boosted server) and have finally gotten a mutation... I suspect it is a color mutation because the baby has a white underbelly and a dark purple/blue navy blue back, I just wanted to know all the colors that can be mutated into a giga.... I havent found anything online about what colors are actual mutations so any info will help thanks
  15. Giga question

    Please give info recently been taming gigas. On official. Tamed a 95 male and 140 male. Do all gigas wake up with the same melee? I know the health gets nerfed but if that’s the case how do you ever get to 250 melee gigas? Do you have to breed 1,000 times to get there or can you get decent melee gigas through taming?
  16. rag giga spawns wierd

    i know that they added a spawn at green obby but has anyone else gone a week with out seeing a giga some times the only time i see good spawns is after a dino wipe and then there is almost always 3 on the map i have killed the low lv ones to try to get high lv ones to spawn but it fells like a waste because even then it can take days for another one to spawn i fell like there should always be at least one wild giga on rag it is alittle disheartening to wait days for one to spawn and it be lv 40.
  17. I finally beat the alpha overseer last night in single player. I love that fight. I hate the lave cave part... there are certain areas where you can't choo-choo train more than 6 dinos without them bunching up and falling off a ledge. It takes over an hour just to navigate over 15 rexes to the bottom of the lava cave part... Anyways, everytime I got to the 496 giga at the entrance to the cold tek chamber area - it was never just one giga. It was always multiples of him standing on the exact same spot. It would look like one giga, but once agro'd I would see the different gigas split off and come at me. Half the time they would all just be spinning on the spot because they were stuck together. I would then have to just sit there laser-blasting them with my rex until they all died at the same time in a dramatic giga corpse eruption. SIDE NOTE: my vultures never teleported from the tele pad into the overseer part.
  18. How to re-start server?

    I've recently depleted the iron ore on SE and so I returned to the island for a while and there is a few things off.(these were off before I left actually) Rarely any Rexes spawn(only one on Death Island, and there isn't even always one), the only common apex predators are Carnos and Yutas. I haven't seen a Spino in ages. I've seen a giga ONCE. But since I changed the sever difficulty it's been gone. I'm gunna get some low level Quetzals then I need to reset the server to get the predators to spawn again. I play on Local and I'd like to keep my dinos and buildings, is there a way to reset only dinos and metal ore? I appreciate any advice given.
  19. Alpha giga

    Make an alpha giga and if you manage to kill it you get asc stuff lmao
  20. does anyone know wehn the SE area of rag is coming out on ps4? because its out on PC. also i hope that they are new loading zones so the lag wont be bad over there.
  21. Just wondering if anyone else has had any issues with baby gigas that stop eating from tek troughs while being raised. Last weekend we were raising a bunch of rexes and three gigas from our new tek troughs. All three gigas died of starvation at very different points of their maturation. One about 20%, one about 50% and one about 85% (that really hurt). All troughs were kept a minimum of 50% full at all times. The deaths all occurred when nobody was online on that server, however when we logged back on, saw the death, and checked the status of the troughs they were all almost full. None of the rexes starved. All made it to maturation. There is a remote possibility that somehow something got into the base and attacked the giga, causing it to move out of range of the trough, but none of the rexes ever moved at all, and after the first death we installed several turrets to ensure anything that did get in would be killed immediately. I'm hoping someone can provide some insight.
  22. How do you kite a barn on pve?

    So someone has been greifing me and i want to wipe his base. He has a decent location with all stone, has a barn he keeps his dinos in, but its on a fairly hard to reach location. Its not impossible but i feel like if i try to kite something up it would attack other bases as well. The rag server has no giga spaws and i think only 1 titan spawn, all blocked. Im great at tanking wyverns but idk, if i kite them all the way from the scar to blue ob, how i would get them to agro. Any kiting/wiping techniques or strategies i can get to help?
  23. I have been playing a single player game on the Island map since the game went "full release" and I've yet to see a giga spawn. I did a "DestroyWildDinos" command a week ago to see if something would change... nothing... I see all kinds of dinos. I have dinocount of 2.0 . I see the odd titanosaur/quetz... but no giga. I don't think it should be so hard to find a giga on a single player game...
