Getting a massive TLC update in March 2018. The saddle will act as a mobile smithy, Argentavis will be able to carry with Talons as well as with its beak, reduced carry weight on obsidian and a few other unannounced resources (similar to the mammoth and wood), and will also gain a Rapid HP Regen upon eating (likely from devouring corpses and not specifically food from inventory). Like so people can see!
These guys will change the way you play, they are that good, yes they can be slow but everything else about them is great, it makes taming mid-sized creatures so much easier, i recommend getting one before level 62, that way you can craft a saddle once hit that level.
So I was playing ark two of are pteranodons had died the day before Ea and hooch so I tamed another pteranodon, one of my tribe members said “I’m gonna get another argentavis we need more flying Dino’s” I said ok so when he left I saw like after 20 minutes tribe member was killed so I said HURRY TAKE THE PTERANODON TO GET KFC ( are argentavis) QUICK so he did he got back to them and said “I got kfc I’m gonna get my stuff” not even 5 minutes later I see tribe member was killed by a level 40 raptor then pteranodon was killed by a level 30 alpha carno and I thought oh no and then I saw the message level 179 kfc (argentavis) was killed by -level 40 raptor my heart sank are best Dino killed...this just happend as of writing this we have no flying Dino’s I’ll update you if anything else happens I just wanted to tell this story
My absolute favorite creature in the whole game. I always get an argy as soon as I’m able. High health and damage, great carrying weight (especially for metal/crystal/etc.), looks regal af, and it gets a regen boost from eating corpses (which can restore its stamina in mid air, I’m not kidding, I’ve had it happen). Can carry a good few bigger dinos, too.
My argy is named Bloodwing and I love her to death. Highly recommend.
Argies are REALLY good midgame and somewhat end game every meduim size dino u need to tame can be picked up and knoked out with a friend and it is also a great material dino that helps do quick material runs
