  • Some of this is just banter between characters. This is all outside the RP. Hence why characters tend to be more relaxed here.

    @Arluna Star If you could talk to your father, Llewas Star, today, what would you say?

    "A Troodon? That little thing? How could that kill me?" "Seriously! The sun's going down! RUN AWAY FROM THEM NOW WHILE YOU CAN!!!" :eek: Size does not matter in Ark :ash:

    I'm doing way better now. I'm off the antibiotics! :yay: I'm just making sure a small sore heals fully now.

    I'm also doing better. I'm pain free now and the antibiotics are doing their job. :u:

  • Phoenix Flaming StarJune 2nd, 2022, 8:50 pm
    More than likely, yes. Nothing happened. I'm in pain but It's a familiar pain. I have a pretty good idea about what's happening to me. Let's just say I have an extremely good feeling as to what I have (not Covid, thankfully. I'll be fine.)
  • Arluna StarJune 2nd, 2022, 8:47 pm

    You know what? I liked it when my forum sections had different skins. It made each section it's own different thing. I'm going to bring that back. :)

    You definitely don't want to know what that is. :evgrin: All I'm going to say is that it hurts men more than women. :wink2:

These could come in handy.

General
Unlock sparkpowder asap.
Don't lay on regular beds and log off. You'll get stuck when you log back on... :stare: Tek sleeping pods are ok, but regular beds, no.
Hatchet gets more wood, stone, and hide.

*Video's were not made by me. I take no credit for them.

Taming Tips
Make sure you're prepared. (it's a lot of time and work, but this is worth it)
  • Tame some jerboa's (just punch them until they get knocked out, then feed them berries) and Dodo's so they can start giving you poop
  • Take that poop and go tame a dung beetle.
  • Tame a Phiomia (When tamed, feed them stimberries and they're super poopers! :lol: But make sure they have food too!)
  • Make yourself a garden, preferably within a green house. (I personally make my green house big enough to house my Phiomia and I let my dung beetle roam around in it too.)
  • grow narcoberries and at least 1 of the four fruits. (I personally grow all berries and fruits in my garden)
  • Make 100+ Narcopots
  • make one longneck rifle,
  • make at least 50 tranq darts.
  • Build the proper trap that's away from your base (search youtube for trap ideas, different trap builds work for different dinos)
  • craft the saddle of the dino you want to tame before you go.
Feeding 25 narcopots to a potential tame, will give them 1,000 torpor (keeps them asleep)

One narcopot gives about 40 torpor.

One narcoberry gives about 7 points of torpor over 3 seconds.

After knocking out a tame, starve them (watch their food get low) while keeping their torpor high. When their food gets low, feed them. They'll tame up quick! Do not let their food run out or they will die!

Easy Otter Taming *You need a Tamed Argy for this
  • Hop on your Argy and find a wild Otter.
  • Pick up the wild Otter in the Argy's beak.
  • Feed the Otter fish to tame it like you normally would.
Boy I feel dumb for not knowing this one. :blank:

Wells are NOT a reliable source of water for your garden! Best just do it the old fashioned way. Put the irrigation pipe in a lake, ocean, or river.

I'm frusterated..... :pissed:

Get tames' health up to 10,000.
Their weight should at the very least match yours.

Crystal wyverns eat crystal. If you are gathering crystal, do NOT put it in the wyverns' inventory! They'll eat it. :blank:

Baby Crystal Rock Drakes eat Prime Crystal from the mod: Crystal Isles Dino Addition. They're crafted on the Crystal Crafter workbench.

Why do I have to join your discord server to learn that, and why is that important information not on the mod page??? :tease: :whatever:

During a taming, MAKE SURE YOUR MOUNT IS PASSIVE BEFORE YOU JUMP OFF IT! Otherwise your mount will go after your potential tame and kill it! X( (Lost a 150 argy :sad: )
