  1. Something is broken with Lair of the mask water, the underwater cave near blue obelisk. If you fly with a griffin inside the cave, you'll produce annoying water ripples everywhere. Also it's impossible to "land" a pelagornis on the water surface, as it just bounces.
  2. Hey there, since the beginning of Easter event, me and my tribemembers have troubles controlling our griffins (others had the same issue with wyverns as I asked). After we park them they just fly off somewhere into the map as if they were trying to chase something. Has nothing to do with aggression level as mine is usually passive (and so it was this time). I have been killing a ptera mid air and tranqing another dino in a cage. Then again my griffin just went off somewhere into the opposite direction. When it first happened to me I put a tracker on it and let it fly around, thought maybe he was after a body I didn't eat after I was scouting around, but it looked like it was on wandering and started to fly to the parts of the map I didn't even visit recently. Griff flew out of render here: I dragged it back despite it not wanting to listen to my whistles, and it kept trying to get out: Any more people have that problem lately? Any way to fix this?
  3. So I play singleplayer on the ps4 and I’ve tamed multiple griffins on ragnarok and have tamed ones with different colors (reddish color, brown, and the normal tanish orangey color) and whenever I log off and log back on every griffin turns into the regular orangey color so they all look the same. Is there a way to fix this?? My game is fully updated. Any help is greatly appreciated
  4. So I’ve tamed a few griffins that were different shades, one an orangey tan(the basic color they usually spawn as) a brown and tan and a more reddish one, and whenever I log off and log back on they seem to change back into the original orangey color. And it’s pretty disappointing and I really hope there’s a way to fix it or make it aware to people that work on bugs/fixes. BTW: I play on singleplayer and my game is fully updated. And it seems to always happen with whatever griffin I tame.
  5. After the TLC Phase 2 ( Raptor, Spino, Argen ... ) update. I tried to see the new dino skill so i let the Raptor Pounce on my when im riding a Griffin. After that my griffin run away ( its not set to passive flee ) ~ 20 min after that i found him. But when i bring my griffin back home and jump off his back he start to running around again. Here is the clip of that ( This happen on Ragnarok map Official server )
  6. The island is a fairly big map, and having to travel long distances to get metal/obsidian/crystal with only the limited flyers (argy, pteranodon, tapejara, etc) is vert time consuming and kind of a drag. So I think it would be really convenient and helpful if the griffin was added to the map or maybe the ice wyvern, since theyre both better on speed and weight than most of the basic flyers. BTW, I play on the PS4 so I don’t have access to mods and such like the flyers mod.
  7. Hi just another person reporting griffins changing color to default after restarting the game. It always happens no matter how long thew game is off for, and the griffins can naturally spawn with some pretty nifty colors: my favorite being black wings reddish tan body and white covert feathers, his name was Scar... may he rest in peace.
  8. Griffin Colour Glitch

    On the ps4 the griffins always are the same color when i relog. I will tame one, a beautiful black and orange. Log out to do stuff. When i log back in it will be set to an ugly oranga-yellow. This is for all of my griffins they all turn the same color. This bug has been here since Rag came out with the griffin and i know for a fact that im not the only one with this bug/glitch. I really want that to be fixed. It is annoying to have to paint my griffins to hide the hideous color. Admins please try to fix this! (Will add photo when I get the chance)
  9. Dear WC, My game keeps crashing everytime i start flying a flyer. It just makes the resolution go to "Input not available", and i keep losing flyers do to this. Please come up with a solution because im forced to use a mount like a thylacoleo or other fast mounts to get around the map, while flying is 10x easier. - DsQuaReD
  10. Here is another interesting feature I discovered while playing on Ragnarok that has to do with the Griffin. Again, this is for people who don't know this simple fact about Griffins so if you already know this thread isn't for you. The simple fact I learned about Griffins is that you can wield a lance while riding as the driver (couldn't get it to work with the passenger). In retrospect this seems obvious as most weapons can be equipped while riding a griffin but since the Griffin is a flyer there was a chance this feature could have been disabled for balance. But as we can clearly see it is a feature and a very potent feature at that. Not only could a griffin jouster dismount players on land mounts, but could also potentially dismount players on other flyers (this will need to be tested). In the sky being dismounted can mean death if one doesn't have a parachute or grappling hook. I hope everyone found this to be an informative update and hope to see someone confirm if dismount players on flying mounts will be a thing.
  11. So as I stated in a previous topic I play on ps4 on a no dedicated server on ps4, We have been collecting wyverns, 2 of each, one male, one female and I have hatched a few ice wyverns and they always look so cool when they are hatched but as I log off and they are fully grown, when I go back on the colour and pattern changes completely, they look nothing like they do on my partners ps4, they look dark blue and black and white and black but on my side they look a similar blue to the ice around the worm cave, the griffin also looks a different colour to her than me, This is ANOTHER bug that needs addressing by the incompetent dev teams over at wildcard, they focus so much on bringing out dlc we have to pay for and neglect the core game that has more bugs than I've experienced on most games put together, Wildcard are proving to be a difficult game developer, they are refusing to listen to any feedback posted in these forums that will improve their game tenfold. I loved the game when it was in early access but slowly starting to loathe it solely because of the devs giving huge update sizes for bug fixes and no bugs actually being fixed, I can provide screenshots to prove the bugs I am experiencing are very real and very annoying.
  12. I'm like 99% positive that there is something that can cause a crash to desktop(for the host) when the griffin lands. My brother and I have been playing using a non-dedicated server and there have been several crashes ever since we tamed some griffins. Each time it happened was when someone was landing a griffin. We have played without using the griffins for many hours with no issues. The crash does not happen everytime the griffin lands, but like 1/20 landings.
  13. Video The Baby flee in fear machanic is activating on all adult flyers. I believe its cause by them detecting a dead dino in the water. It is NOT the idle landing animation. It looks back over it's shoulder while running away. When i find it later it has not landed. This has happened twice now and both times it was because there was a wild dino recently killed floating in the water (not fish). Video description: My tames are being attacked by a wild Spino in the water. I whistle neutral to all and they kill it in the water. When my griffin detects the dead Spino in the water it flees the opposite direction, looking over its shoulder the same way baby wyverns do. It was found floating against a tree and never landed. edit: Second video clearly showing griffin fleeing from raptor that is dead in the water.
  14. Griffin Balance

    I've been engaged in a lot of combat over the last 2 months both big and small and what I've noticed as foot soldier in these raids is that when it comes to air supremacy and taking out ground targets swiftly the Griffin is the go to dino. It seems to have no real weakness. It has a large health pool, its fast, you can shoot from it, you can't be whipped off it and it's attacks are very powerful especially its dive attack. In short it seems to be almost like a pre nerf flyer in many respect. A lot of advantages with few disadvantages. There is no hard counter to this dino like there is for many other dinos. It is a jack of all trades and a master of most. Which brings me up to my final point - is it balanced? I have to say from what I've seen it doesn't seem to be. The fact that you rarely see other flyers in battles these days, (even the mighty wyren is a rare sight) seems to be a good indicator that it definitely needs some tweaking in the balance department. If 90% of players are using one dino over the others then its a pretty good indicator that its not balanced properly.
  15. Official Server- Rag. Picture pretty much says it all, but basically had the glitch where griffin flew off on it's own. Ended up finding it and on the way of getting it back (following, not on it) it ended up getting stuck on the other side of the world border. Calling on WC to help get my boy stepson out of the world border. More than messed up, game breaking glitch. Thanks, Zach.
  16. Welcome to Unevolved Gaming, As requested in the comment section, we are going to take a closer look at the Griffin The Griffin is a medium sized creature that has its origin in legends. Their appearance is best described as a hybrid with a body and hind legs of a lion while their wings, head and front talons show large resemblance to an eagle. Griffins are very aggressive predators that can only be found on the Ragnarok map. They are most commonly found on the plains and mountain ridges surrounding the small lake just north of the green obelisk. On occasion Griffins are also reported to spawn on the cliffs near the Beaver sanctuary just east of the Viking bay castle. Griffins are easy to spot due to the cloud of dust they create with there wings while flying close to the ground. Griffins are rather strong opponents and don't appear to take any bonus damage from ranged weapons that other flying creatures do. Fortunately, wild Griffin attacks don't inflict as much damage as other flying creatures. Griffins are also easily distracted, and prone to switch targets. A flying Griffins attack can easily be avoided due to their large turning radius, which makes attacking them with an Argentavis that has a decent melee and stamina possible. Using a flier to kill a griffin can however be a time consuming undertaking due to the Griffins large health. Survivors that don't have access to a decent flier can also use ranged weapons or pikes when a griffin attacks from the ground or circles a survivor at short range. Using a mount with an attack that has a wide area of effect and decent damage output like a T-Rex can be very effective when attempting to kill a Griffin. Survivors will have to keep in mind that there can be other hostile creatures in the area, such as the Allosaurus, Carno or Terror Bird. When killed a Griffin can be harvested for raw meat and hide. The easiest way to tame a Griffin is to make it follow you into a taming pen with a flier or on foot. A simple taming pen made out of door frames or pillars will work as long as it is closed of with ceilings so the Griffin can not escape. When trapped a Survivor can knock out a Griffin with tranquilizer arrows, darts or shocking tranquilizer darts The Griffin being a carnivore can be tamed with al kinds of meat and fish however they prefer Allosaurus kibble, raw mutton, raw prime meat or raw prime fish meat Even though the Griffin needs a lot of tranquilizers to be knocked out, they only require a relatively small amount of narcoberries, narcotics or bio toxin to keep their torpor up. When tamed, a Griffin does not require a saddle to be ridden. They do however have the ability to carry a rider and a passenger, both the rider and the passenger will be able to make full use of their weapons when mounted on the Griffin both on land and in the air. The Griffin is a land and air predator. When on the ground a Griffin can do a bite attack by pressing the right trigger on your controller, when airborne this attack will make the Griffin claw its opponent. This attack is not extremely powerful however combined with the Griffins maneuverability it can devastating for your opponent. A Griffin can also pick up survivors and small creatures like Otters and Compy's with its front talons by pressing the left trigger on your controller while flying or hovering over them. Keep in mind that on official pve servers wild animals can not be picked up. Even though the Griffin has a large turning radius they are extremely agile and can easily outmaneuver most creatures in the game. Their ability to escape from danger with a high speed dive can be very useful when fighting a Wyvern or to use during an escape while stealing a Wyverns egg's. This maneuver can be performed by pushing the left joystick forward while looking at the ground. Performing a dive will drain a Griffins stamina. The same maneuver can also be turned into a dive bomb and used to attack land based targets, this can be done by lining up a target right below your griffin, pushing the left joystick forward and diving vertically on top or close to your target. This will cause your Griffin to pound onto its target. When done correctly the impact of a dive bomb can kill smaller creatures in one hit. A dive bomb can be abborted by pressing the left joystick on your controller even while already diving. Survivors will have to keep in mind that the Griffin must be sprinting and that the dive has to be vertical to be turned into a dive bomb, survivors that are using a weapon while mounted can not perform a dive bomb. A Griffin can also perform a diving swipe attack in order to inflict an even higher amount of damage. This can be done by using the claw or right trigger attack when hitting a creature coming from a high speed dive. This dive can be repeated when pulling up after clawing the target and does not have to be vertical as long as you have enough speed. Survivors will have to keep in mind that both the dive bomb and the dive swipe will drain a Griffins stamina rapidly. The Griffins ability to hover or move in any direction also make it a very useful mount to place walls and ceilings in hard to reach places. This ability can also prove very useful when collecting giant bee honey from bee hives. In my opinion the griffin is a very useful mount for both pve and pvp servers. It's ability to carry 2 survivors make the Griffin an essential mount for taming purposes while it's maneuverability and speed make it a mount not to be underestimated. Performing a dive bomb or dive swipe can be devastating for your opponents when executed correctly, they might however take some practice at first. Survivors will have to keep in mind that hitting a tree whilst performing a dive bomb can result in your Griffin taking considerable fall damage. That concludes our spotlight on the Griffin Don't forget to leave a like and subscribe for more ark spotlights and comment to tell us which creature you would like to see in the next episode.
  17. So I have read the general idea that when it comes to dog fighting the Griffin is the king of the skies. But in practice I just don't see it. Now it's true that the griffin is faster for short spurts when it has a chance to climb high altitude and swoop down. But in almost ever dog fight I have been practicing in with tribe mates I have learned that if the Wyvern rider is aware of the griffins existence, he can bank hard and initiate a dog fight pattern like this: It starts with the Wyvern and Griffin approaching each other at max speeds. Usually there is an initial attempt to pick which usually fails and then both pilots engage this maneuver (The one circle flow or two circle flow) At that point it transitions to a turn circle geometry. In the below pic, look at it as if you were looking down from the sky towards the ground: And at this point The griffin's initial speed bonus is gone and is starting to get low on stamina. The Wyvern has plenty of stamina and now is gaining on the Griffin in this loop. But the biggest benefit for the Wyvern starts when I put his head to as far as I can over his own shoulder and shoot my fire, ice, or lightening breath. It actually hits the Griffin. Did the same with a Pteranodon. So during the dog fight the Wyvern has a stamina advantage, does damage to the enemy while trying to get in position to pick them, AND eventually is traveling faster than the Griffin after the initial one circle flow maneuver. On top of all of that the, the Wyvern has a larger grab area. He can miss the target more and still get a successful grab connection to the rider. And if being played as a defensive unit, the wyvern, not griffin, can pick up stegos dropped on his own base. What am I missing here? How is the Griffin better than a Wyvern unless its a situation where the Griffin ambushes a Wyvern from higher alt without being seen?
  18. Cannot Upload Certain Animals

    I try to upload my Griffin but it will not work, I have to wait 3 to 5 hours before I can upload it again but once I upload it and bring it out I can see the timer but even when the time runs out I have to wait. This happens for most of my tames and I've tried finding out why but have not found any awnsers on why it's doing this
  19. On my PC Single Player Ragnarok game I tamed the three griffins shown. After logging out and back in their colors reverted to default. Players across all platforms are experiencing this issue. Please fix and bring back our beautiful griffins. @Jatheish
  20. So, recently got a PvP fight with my fire wyvern (grown from lvl 175 egg) which got aprox 430% damage, against Griffin (dunno stats). Have set him in flames about 5-6times, and realised I did NO damage to him. After that we decided to try it with my tribemate on one of ours Griffins, and what was my surprising face, when from Fire breathe right in a face to a griffin I dealt only 900dmg, out of hes 16k HP....(it's 5.625% of hp approx.) So: 1. - Am I missing something? As wiki says it deals 20% damage of hp during 10 seconds, excluding fire resistance...(actually burning it for 5sec. only) So logically to think that Griffins feathers made of steel and have amazing fire resistance??!!? 2. - Where I can find out those resistances if they actually existing? Can someone make it clear for me please???
  21. Griffin (peter) and black pearls

    So I have been trying using great heights and aiming for smallest targets of trilobites to get black pearls amongst other things. It is shown that the griffin is the Number one harvester for black pearls but for the love of god I have not got a single successful attempt. take in to account that the moment a griff touches water you are removed from it as a mount . Has anyone had any success with this and if so how ? sorry if another topic on this exists I have searched and I have found nothing relating the the 2.
  22. Griffin Questions

    Some things I've thought about... Should the Griffin have a saddle for it? Should the Griffin be able to breed? Should we be able to change the speed of the griffin or flyers in general? Why isn't there a two handed option? Tell me in the comments please...
  23. In Single player, the griffins all have the samme color on their wings and Ice Wyverns also have the same color. Its only those those two species who have this bug. When im hatching ice wyverns egg they have their normal different colors, but when i log out and later log in again, it have exactly the samme color as all the others who have this bug.
  24. According to the wiki Griffins are able to be trapped by both Bear Traps and Large Bear Traps. I went into Single Player with PVP and Friendly Fire Enabled to test this theory, and I could not get either bear trap to spring on the Griffin. The following is what I found: Argentavis: Trappable by both Small and Large Bear Traps Lymantria: Trappable by both Small and Large Bear Traps Pelagornis: Trappable by both Small and Large Bear Traps Pteranodon: Trappable by both Small and Large Bear Traps Quetzal: Trappable by both Small and Large Bear Traps Wyvern: Trappable by only Large Bear Traps It seems the only flyer in the game that is not effected by one or both of the bear traps is the Griffin, and this I would assume is a bug. Additionally, it does not seem that the player riding the dino (whether there is a saddle equipped or not) is forced to dismount the dino as it says on the wiki: Once activated, the rider is forced to dismount, and cannot remount until the Dino is freed. What is actually happening is, the player riding is not forced to dismount; however if they do they cannot remount until the trap is removed. This becomes a problem in PVP when players can dive bomb turrets and plant X without worry of being trapped or dismounted by bear traps.
