  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. What's the best weapon to use for these bosses? Fab pistol, Fab Sniper, AR, or Compound Bow? I have all 3 in Ascendant BP form now ranging from 250-270% weapon damage, but they vary in durability and damage so much its hard to figure out which weapon is worth the time spent to make them and use. We can easily make ammo and arrows for them and it would take a bit to make the weapons themselves, but totally doable. Any help would be much appreciated thanks!
  4. Anyone beaten the Megapithecus on hard recently with newest patch out? I've watched a few videos, and seen their strats but most involve almost all the dinos dyeing(typically Rex's of course). I'd like to know what the community has found to be the most effective way to take him down with minimal losses.
  5. Please Fix The Center Bosses!

    So Tek Tier has been out for a while now, but it's still VERY hard to get anywhere with it on The Center. On the Island you get a good amount of Element from defeating the bosses, especially if you fight them on a higher difficulty. On The Center however, there are NO DIFFICULTIES and you only get 12 Element from beating 2 Bosses at once! Not to mention you DO NOT LEARN ANY Tekgrams! Another issue having to do with the bosses is you cannot spawn any variant of bosses other than gorilla_bp_c and spiderL_bp_c. This is a problem for particularly me because I host a server that does special events involving bosses. It would also be nice to spawn the Manticore and the Dodo bosses on all the maps(If you own Scorched Earth and all the time not just holiday events). So to sum it up, please fix the ability to spawn bosses, and fix Tek Tier on The Center.
  6. Megapithecus arena brightness Hello everyone, Has anyone been experiencing the issue of entering Megapithecus arena and seeing all the textures inside (floor,rocks, etc.) in super bright white colour? I basicaly cannot see anything when i enter, it happens arround 50% of the times (recently more like 80% of the time). I have tryed starting the game in normal mode, in low ram mode doesnt seem to matter. My lightshafts and bloom quality are turned off aswell. Anyone else experienced that or maybe found a fix?
  7. Boss Tactic?

    Hi looking for best way to do the dragon boss and the megapithecus boss ? we done the broodmother and had no problem with it , 10 rex's medium was v easy , all 15-20k health 450-600 melee
  8. Hello survivors, My allies and I already did all island bosses on easy and medium. Are there any differences when it comes to mastering them on hard? Have to add we did Broodmother with rexes + shooting metal arrows at her, Ape: we went in there with 10 people and simply shoot him with metal arrows, and Dragon we had one turtle who was tanking the boss and 8 people shooting him. Thanks, Lucy
  9. Ok so I just brought this to the Megapithecus: 15 rexes, 5 theris. Each having 25-35k life and 500-700 melee. Each having ascendant saddles. I was trying to do this alone (since I'm playing solo on this server), and I was wearing 1500 armor. What happened: I spawned in the megapithecus arena, set all dinos on aggressive and follow, and rushed towards the gorilla on my best rex. Once I reached him, I got somewhat close to him before the other dinos attacked, where I probably draw aggro. Within the blink of an eye I was oneshotted (still sitting on the rex), and all the dinos, saddles and stuff was lost. So how is it that I can take damage while beeing mounted? Is this a bug? If not, would this mean this boss cannot be done solo/is not supposed to be done solo? I agree this is endgame, and meant for tribes, not solo players. But as you all might know the tek tier is hidden behind all the bosses, and I really don't want to believe all this shall not be available to solo players. I actually like challenges, and all I did so far was done alone. And I would not bother failing on bosses multiple times when doing solo - the only problem here is, that everything is instantly lost, without a chance to flee or something. Re-Breeding all of them will take maybe a week or two, and bringing them to this level again will take another one or two weeks. So all in all this just feels like a real disappointment, and reminds me of all those funny youtube videos where players one-shot dragon on hard because of their cheated damage - except the boss just did that with me. I mean I was easily able to do the broodmother alone, and people even do manticore on medium alone, so why is this so brutal? How is your opinions on this?
  10. Do not open Boss Dossier for Megapithecus After the victory on boss arena, can not open dossier for Megapithecus. Achieving Steam opens but dossier not opens in user profile. We won Megapithecus, in the arenas of all three levels of difficulty. Map: TheCenter ver. 255.23
  11. New Boss Levels

    Our tribe is pretty advanced, 3 or 4 big bases and every kind of farm on all 3 of the official Maps. Tek Teir drops and the the tribe is pretty stoked to go after some tek stuff. We understand that Centre has boss problems at the mo so we are happy to go back to the island. But before we do can anyone give any info about the new boss levels? We would like to do a bit of prep before going in and losing a bunch of stuff. how do the stats on the new "Easy", "Medium" and "Hard" Bosses differ? how much HP are we going to have to grind down and how hard do the new Bosses hit? Where does the old Broodmother sit compared to these new variants of the BM. Any info would be gratefully received Thanks P.
  12. So, as a little back ground, I am on a cluster server that uses quest lines to make the community progress to different islands. Now, to get to Scorched Earth naked with no dinos, we have to defeat the brood mother as a community. Then from there we have to do the Megapithecus and Dragon (maybe, unless they prove to be way too ridiculous then we may come up with other ideas.) People on the server are getting ancy to unlock SE so to start we need to take out the Broodmother. We have some really nice high level bred bears (for the mobs) and probably 150 rockets and a bunch of launchers just within our tribe. I have done the first two arenas before on another server. However! We did this pre-wipe on a server that had been running for damn near a year I think? So we had tons of really high end animals and gear to go in with and no one was afraid about losing poop because we were about to wipe. However this time, no wiping anytime in the foreseeable future. 1) What do we need to take out the brood mother? 2) What do we need to take out the Megapithecus? (No ridden dinos thanks to that overhead swing that kills you in one smack haha.) 3) How hard is that Dragon? Has anyone here defeated it legit? No exploits, regular level dinos, not that level 2000 stuff
  13. Title says it all. We just killed Megapithecus on official hardcore server EU 449 with 2 players. Due to problems with shadowplay we couldn't record the kill but added a screenshot and exhibit flags and trophy in our base on the official hardcore EU 449 server. We used a galli and rocketlaunchers to take down the boss. 61 rockets needed (some misses) and 3 rocket launchers used (damage ranging from 239,9% to 212%). The durability on the launchers needed was below 400. //edit : typos
  14. Attack of the Ape King

    Hey Survivors To celebrate the upcoming release of War of the Planet of the Apes I had an idea for a fun event called Attack of the Ape King. Now the movie doesn't hit the big screen till June or July next year but it is just an idea. Now during this event their with be a wild Megapithecus that with spawn on the Island and The Center haven't thought about what will spawn on Scorched Earth yet. Anyway the Megapithecus that will spawn during the Attack or the Ape King event will be twice as strong as the regular Megapithecus but not only that but all wild Giganto's and Meso's will be aggressive and they will attack you even if you are wearing a Ghillie Suit making them impossible to tame. and to make things worse Yeti will also spawn around the Island and not only that but if you take a tamed Giganto or Meso near the Ape king they two will turn on you. It's this guy's Nightmare So if you guys like this idea or have any feedback on this idea then post in the comment section below it is greatly appreciated. And make sure to check out the trailer for War of the Planet of the Apes. Thank you Bye Bye
  15. Invisible Bosses?

    Did anyone notice that if you forcetame the broodmother and the megaphitecus and if you quit the game, they get invisible? Now you can keep them, but it is no sense that you can see them, btw it is a bug or its a feature that you cant spawn manticore on the island?
  16. I recently thought of something. The color of the three main game bosses is linked directly to the colors of the obelisks. Broodmother Lysrix- Is the green boss (Arena under green obelisk, is green, etc) Megapithecus- Is the blue boss (Arena under blue obelisk, fur is blue tinted, etc) Dragon- Is the red boss (Arena under red obelisk, is red or reddish purple, etc) Those are also the colors of the wyverns. Seeing that the Manticore is red, I wonder what the green and blue bosses are going to be in Scorched Earth. What do you think is the significance of those three colors in the Lore? I would love to hear your opinions. TheWearWolf
  17. I've seen several reports of Dinos not spawning on the Center map after the 243 patch, As a summary i believe the following are not spawning: Megapithecus, Dire Bear, Mosasaurus. Any adds or updates on if this is adressed or worked on? Thanks
  18. Broodmother Arena Mod

    Hey Survivors Has anyone made a mod for the Broodmother boss arena like how some survivors have made a mod for the Megapithecus arena were it allows you to place the things find inside the arena or if there are any survivors out there planning on making a mod like this plz let me know I would do it myself but I would suck at it.
  19. So, we've already seen the DodoRex fight the Dragon, now we see the DodoRex fight the Megapithecus & Broodmother in the Dual Boss Arena on The Center!
