I was with a decent size tribe with a bunch of friends.They raised a bunch of rock drakes when i joined them.However, there was one Rock Drake in Particular that was laying in the corner of the dino pen that has been neglected, never being used cause previous owner from the tribe has stopped playing ARK. The tribe decided that i earned the right to claim the Rock Drake as my own. It was only a 140, but i cherished that thing like a real buddy.I named him "Anon Loves me".Because he always had my back in the darkest time. When i first glided through the air with the drake. It showed me a side of ARK i never knew before, and showed me the oppurtunities the world had to give to me.
Unfortunatly the happy moments came to an end. We got attacked by a bigger tribe while i was on. My tribe leader insisted i flee and transfer servers. However, i could not take "Anon loves me" at the time cause of the sudden ambush. The Rock Drake and I looked at each other one last time before parting ways..
They’re like wyverns in many ways, one of which being that most nothing will attack them whilst riding unless provoked. (With the exception of Nameless and Reapers, because they’re bastards). However, something important to note is that if you have a second passenger (since the saddle is a two seater) anything aggressive that wouldn’t agro on you before — now will. Not sure if this is a bug or what, but the passenger can also get hurt, so be careful.
Good luck out there, survivors.
This thing is one of the BEST traveling dinos you can have, it can glide, climb, walk/run, and swim pretty easily! Not to mention it does decent damage, I recommend putting stam, hp, and melee damage on it. Use oxygen if you want to be underwater more often but it isn’t a good aquatic creature.
If you Aim your mouse at surfaces it will show up a blue reticle, pressing left click with charge-glide you towards it. You can use this in any direction, including dive bombing on a creature. If you time your glide arcs, aim straight up, charge-glide and cancel midway you can gain more altitude and continue flying virtually indefinitely (Stam).
