What are you Hiding from us Wild Card? So I came across something very interesting. I've discovered that you have 2 different types of X Sabertooth Salmon, a common type and a "Rare" type, in the Lunar Biome Aberration caves. So I grabbed my fishing rod and bait to go fishing. However I found out I was unable to cast my rod, i tried chair, bench and being on an Unofficial server i grabbed a Pelagornis, still nothing. So I want to know what you guys/gals are hiding from us, i want that sweet sweet loot from those "Rare" Salmon. Please fix this.
I cracked open 3000 Chibi eggs. Here's what I found Since the Eggcellent event started, I've been cracking Dodo eggs trying to complete the full set of 66 Chibis. Currently am on 65, and just missing 1! After breaking open several thousand of the things, I really started to notice some were far more common than others, so I cracked open exactly 3000 eggs, noting the numbers of particular Chibis that were found, as a way to try and work out rarity. Here's what I got. 28 - Parasaur 28 - Paracer 26 - Raptor 25 - Carno 23 - Doedicurus 23 - Allosaurus 22 - Kentrosaurus 21 - Sarco 21 - Rollrat 20 - Spino 20 - Mammoth 19 - Rex 19 - Phiomia 19 - Moschops 19 - Megatherium 19 - Beelzebufo 18 - Stego 18 - Pulmonoscorpius 18 - Pteranodon 18 - Iguanodon 18 - Direbear 17 - Megalodon 16 - Trike 15 - Terror Bird 15 - Megalania 14 - Megaloceros 14 - Daeodon 13 - Thylacoleo 11 - Karkinos 11 - Baryonyx 10 - Ankylosaurus 06 - Tapejara 06 - Giga 05 - Procoptodon 05 - Ovus 05 - Carbonemys 04 - Teeny Tiny Titano 04 - Rock Golem 03 - Yutyrannus 03 - Oviraptor 03 - Castroides 03 - Argentavis 02 - Troodon 02 - Rock Drake 02 - Rhino 02 - Reaper 02 - Quetzel 02 - Pair o Saurs 02 - Equus 02 - Direwolf 01 - Therazino 01 - Shapeshifter (sm) 01 - Phoenix 01 - Gigantopithecus 01 - Gasbag 01 - Cherufre 01 - Bronto 01 - Basilisk Missing: Sabertooth, Wyvern, Snow Owl, Griffin, Bog Spider, Bunny, Seeker, Shapeshifter (large) While it's pretty clear everything numbering 10 and over is pretty common, 3000 isn't enough to properly work out the rarity of the ones numbering 1 or 2. From what I've seen though, the rarest ones which you could potentially go days and thousands of eggs without seeing are: Bog Spider, Phoenix, Cherufe, Wyvern, Snow Owl, Griffin, Bunny, Rock Drake, Seeker, Pair o Saurs, Shapeshifter (small / large). Some of them are proving super elusive however, and after cracking what I estimate to be well over 20,000 eggs, I'm still missing the Chibi Shapeshifter (Large), and only have 2 Snow Owls. (In comparison with other rare ones, over the whole event I've found a total of 8 phoenixes, 8 bunnies, 6 wyverns, 5 shapeshifter (small), 7 griffins and 3 cherufe) Some other notes Even though there were 2 Rock Drakes within this lot of 3000 eggs, this must've been some sort of fluke, because on this particular day I picked up a total 3 of them, while I have only seen 1 other Rock Drake chibi on a different day of the event. After picking up 2500 eggs and not seeing any Yutyrannus and Troodons from a group of about 8 Dodos, I switched to another group of Dodos and almost immediately started picking up these guys. Perhaps only certain Dodos drop eggs for rarer chibis? Some chibis seem far more common than this selection makes them seem. Gasbags and Brontos, for example. Interested to know other players' findings with the chibis, especially those ultra-rare ones!
Data: How to tell if a stat is statistically good. EDIT: There are now multiple statistical data sets in this post, please check whether the data is for 180 max wild tamed to 269, official rates of 150 max wild tamed to 224. or for pre-tame chances for 150 wild or 180 wild. I have looked around and have not seen much information about how to tell if a stat is good based off statistical data. I decided to investigate it myself. Now, before I present my findings I am assuming you know how to do the following: Tame a Dino, and Enter Its Stats Into a Level Calculator. This means you know how many Level Points are distributed into each stat. Most creatures have 7 stats to distribute into (this includes wasted speed distributions). That being said, I originally hypothesized that stats form a bell curve around the average distribution of the tamed level points. I made a computer program to randomly roll stats for 1 million creatures and tally the 7 million stat rolls to see how often they appear. To explain this in detail: My server has a max wild level of 180 that will increase to 269 when tamed assuming 99% taming effectiveness. 269/7 = 38.4 average levels in each stat Now, assuming you want the best stats possible, I suggest taming all high level dinos regardless of pre-tame stats, but if kibble is scarce, I suggest still taming any high levels because you can make more kibble with effort, but you can't make high level dinos appear. Now, onto statistical data to help you decide if you got a good or rare stat roll. Once the program tallied all the stats of the 1 million, level 269 tames, these stats were converted into percents. These percents are as follows and tell how rare it is to get that roll or higher(PERCENTS OVERLAP AND ARE FOR 180 MAX WILD DINO KIBBLE TAMED TO 269): 52 or higher = 1.37% 51 or higher = 2.06% 50 or higher = 3.00% 49 or higher = 4.30% 48 or higher = 6.03% 47 or higher = 8.25% 46 or higher = 11.07% 45 or higher = 14.55% 44 or higher = 18.72% 43 or higher = 23.60% 42 or higher = 29.13% 41 or higher = 35.25% 40 or higher = 41.82% 39 or higher = 48.68% 38 = average for level 269 37 or lower is not something you want to stop at. You can use this info to determine if you want to continue looking for better stat rolls or start breeding. Note: Anything higher than 52 only appeared 0-3 times out of the 7 million stats rolled and anything higher than 60 wasn't even seen. That being said, aim for 48-50 on after tame stats if your servers max wild dino level is 180 because within a few mutations you're at 54-56. That's a jump from 1/20 or 1/33 chance (rare) to a stat that is 1/171 or 1/443 chance (Not impossible, but easier to breed). Thank you for your time. If you have questions, want data for a different max wild dino level, or would like a different format for the data, feel free to leave a comment. Edit: All statistical data was run multiple times to make sure the sample number (1 million dinos, 7 million stats) was large enough to produce consistent data and it was consistent. NOTE: I saw it suggested somewhere that there is a limit on how many points can be distributed into a stat when a dino is tamed. There is no way to prove this exists or what the cap is unless you go into Ark's source code. I will say that statistical improbability puts a sort of soft cap on how high you can get a stat to be without mutations. EDIT: The following is statistical data is about OFFICIAL SERVER RATES. That is a max wild dino level of 150 which can be kibble tamed to 224. Hopefully, this information is useful to the brave souls who play official. The average value for a 224 dino is 224/7 = 32. The chances for different stats on official dinosaurs tamed to 224 are as follows: 46 or higher = 0.67% 45 or higher = 1.08% 44 or higher = 1.69% 43 or higher = 2.57% 42 or higher = 3.83% 41 or higher = 5.57% 40 or higher = 7.90% 39 or higher = 10.92% 38 or higher = 14.72% 37 or higher = 19.34% 36 or higher = 24.80% 35 or higher = 31.04% 34 or higher = 37.93% 33 or higher = 45.30% 32 = average for level 224 31 or lower is not something you want to stop at. Again, shoot for as high of stats as you want, but 40-42 is a good place to stop taming for official servers and start breeding to get better stats. EDIT: Pre-Tame data for those whom it may concern. Sometimes kibble is scarce and people look at pre-tame stats to see if they want to tame an animal. That means knocking out the animal, putting its current stats into a calculator to get the point distribution. They then decide whether or not to tame it based on how 'good' the stats are, but how high is 'good'. For official rates, max dino level is 150. This means the average stat is 150/7 = 21.4. The following data is for UNTAMED level 150 dinos: 33 or higher = 0.70% 32 or higher = 1.23% 31 or higher = 2.07% 30 or higher = 3.39% 29 or higher = 5.37% 28 or higher = 8.18% 27 or higher = 12.01% 26 or higher = 17.02% 25 or higher = 23.27% 24 or higher = 30.70% 23 or higher = 39.15% 22 or higher = 48.25% 21 = average for 150 wild dino stat 20 or lower is not something you want to tame if kibble is scarce. For unofficial rates with a max dino level of 180. The average stat is 180/7 = 25.7. The following data is for UNTAMED level 180 dinos: 38 or higher = 0.82% 37 or higher = 1.37% 36 or higher = 2.21% 35 or higher = 3.46% 34 or higher = 5.26% 33 or higher = 7.76% 32 or higher = 11.10% 31 or higher = 15.39% 30 or higher = 20.73% 29 or higher = 27.09% 28 or higher = 34.38% 27 or higher = 42.39% 26 = average for 180 wild dino stat 25 or lower is not something you want to tame if kibble is scarce. Hopefully, this pre-tame information is useful to you. Happy hunting!
