For Ark Mobile easy tranq arrows no need for infrastructure.
Tame a ptera and go searching the coast. Either use dilophosaurus bow or terror bird sword with better duds boots to kill and harvest the biotoxin. Then when you have a satisfactory amount of biotoxin go to one of the glacier islands and farm the penguins for polymer. Then comine 5 biotoxin, 2 polymer and an arrow for toxicant arrows. They deal much more torpor and the torpor of the creature rises for 10 second meaning if you tame runs away they most likely will knock out while running! I got 300 arrows in 2-3 hours.
So I started a new ark and saw one of these guys then I was like woah im lucky then it walked into the water and disappeared then the next day I SAW ANOTHER ONE!! Sadly I cant tame it because I just started and I doubt a trike can kill it
Darkwater heard sounds, faint yelling over the rocks.
"Where are they? Dig! Dig!" Mother.
"I'm trying!" Quinter.
They weren't making progress, there was only huge boulders.
"Dad?" Darkwater squeaked. He saw father's face, but he did not know what happened.
"Dad, wake up!"
"DAD, COME ON!"
Vein must have heard him, because she stopped talking.
"Darkwater!" Her amazed, faint voice sounded.
Even though that was mother, what about father?
"DAD! Please wake up, dad."
What had gotten into him? Oh.
'Is he.. Dead?'
Instinctively, Darkwater felt for broken bones and fractures.
His spine was broken near his tail, and several broken bones across his body.
"Dad?" He asked. But.. What was this, a faint breathing?
"Dad! You're going to be OK, dad!"
Pushing and tearing at the rocks, Darkwater heard his mother.
"Is Hurricane alright?"
Making a little hole for him to crawl through, he dug and dug and felt his mother's talons.
"Where is your father?" Vein asked.
Digging more, Darkwater showed his face and pointed to the seemingly lifeless body.
"Oh, no," Vein's horrified face.. He had to do something.
'My powers?' He thought.
Pushing the stone so mother couldn't see, he crawled towards father.
The breathing had stopped. But his heartbeat was still going!
Trying to make use of his powers, he felt a tingling sensation in his wing talons.
They turned a beautiful green and glowed.
Darkwater put his wing talons on his lungs, spine and all the broken bones. A cut ran across his face, he healed that too.
'Was that my power?'
Coughing, Hurricane looked at Darkwater, who no longer had "healing talons".
"You saved me," he thanked, "I'll keep it a secret."
"I'm okay, Vein!"
Why wasn't he more suprised? Well, Darkwater was happy to have his father back either way.
Darkwater awoke and crept outside, glancing to make sure nobody was watching. He picked up a few rocks and set them down, wondering what he could do with these, "powers" and what kind of powers.
Trying to pick the rock up with his mind, it did not budge. OK. Well, something else now.
Darkwater huffed in frustration as he tried to pick up one of the heavier rocks. Not strength.
After trying everything he could think of, he dropped into the snow.
'Am I ever going to even have powers?'
* * *
His mother's voice sounded from the dome. Apparently, Darkwater fell asleep in a little snow-hole thing.
"Yes?" He said.
"We're going for a walk on the mountain. Don't worry, we're just patrolling the territory around here."
"Okay. Let's go."
Grasped in Vein's back talons, Darkwater saw the ground fall away and then move. They headed to the mountains as tropeognathus zoomed by. Blicket and Flame were watching the dome. They had Quinter in Hurricane's talons.
After a lot of flying, they reached the mountains.
"So," Deuvo said, "what's it like here?"
"Dunno," Chroneo and Unnigh shrugged.
"Rocky, dry, cold. We're going to start near the bottom, ish." Father explained as they flew down to a lower-than-middle spot, about half way to the bottom from the middle.
They landed on a swirling path going upwards.
"Quinter can hunt, we can gather crystals on the way."
'That makes me hungry,' Darkwater thought as he was released from his mother's talons.
The seven slowly made their way up the mountain. It was freezing! Hurricane killed several carnos and other threats as they walked, to protect Darkwater, who was stumbling up the slope.
'Maybe my powers will come,' he thought enthusiastically, 'maybe.'
After some walking, Vein suggested that she and the three embers could take a small hunt with Quinter up ahead.
"Sure," Hurricane said, "you can also scout for any ledges or anything dangerous.
"Darkwater, how are you hanging on?"
Father questioned as they left.
"I'm fine, bu-" He was cut off by several icy cold rocks tumbling from the top.
"That's not a good sign," Hurricane cautioned.
Several more fell, booming over the quiet landscape.
"Fly!" His father ran to the ledge, but before he could pick me up, fumbling rocks and snow and ice flew from the peak, pushing Hurricane, who was protecting Darkwater, off the cliff.
The rocks tore Hurricane's wings.
His heart skipped a beat as they neared closer.. And closer.. And then they banged against rocks as a mixture of boulders and ice tumbled down, burying them.
