Listen here boys and girls, for it is story time. Once upon a time on my early game raft with my raptor, I was sailing towards my allies base. Keep in mind this was a modded unofficial server. So I turn around and see two of these chasing me! So, when they attacked us...
My raptor jumped off to fight them. Bless him. I had enough time to sail away, but the raptor never was seen again. Yet, I never got the death message..
Sooo I was going to the desert on lost island after a successful mining trip, with my max level anky on a raft with me, close to the shore, when a leed spawns right behind me so I’m like “oh #@$# but I think I’m to shallow.” NOT! 3 seconds later, my Ankys drowning, I’m dieing to megs, a kapro TWO sarco and some mega pharinas. This ligit happend to me, I had 3700 plus metal!!! One up equals 1 prayer for my metal
P.s I had a high weigh anky and storage box’s on the boat if your wondering how I transported it all.
I was in the middle of the open ocean the first time I encountered these. One started chomping on my raft as I was going to the Herbivore Island. I had no clue what it was so I just kept plowing through the water. In the end, I made it to the island and the Leedsichthys didn't destroy the raft entirely. I hopped in the water to get a look at it and it just sat there. They don't mind people, only boats.
I was cassually just taking a flight to herbivore island WHEN I SAW ONE OF THESE MFS ALMOST COMPLETELY OUT OF THE WATER RIGHT BY THE SHORE! I TOOK PICTURES!! LIKE ONLY THEIR HEAD WAS IN THE WATER THE REST OUT IN THE AIR! It was a shocking and slightly traumatizing experience for me… please up!
9am: I decide to make a raft base so I'm not met with a death screen everytime I log in.
11am: I've finally finished the structure, I go to work.
5 pm: I log into the server, to my joy i'm not met with a respawn screen, I have some fun sailing my raft around and decide to extend it for storage space.
5:30 pm: I've finished the extension, it looks good, I knockout a raptor from inside my raft, while that's taming I fend off argentavis from the raft; from my home.
6 pm: I decide that I need metal, I saw a cave on the south of the island earlier so I decide to bring my raft down there, I stick close to the shore so I don't encounter any leedsichthys, eventually, I come to a large gulf, I decide to save time by sailing across.
This was the worst decision I've ever made
6:30 pm: I begin crossing the gulf, all is well, then I hear it, a loud sound, coming from underneath me, I look down and there it is; the biggest creature I've ever seen, all I can see is A head bigger then my raft, and a pale white colour, I panick, I desperately try to make it back to the shore but I've come too far, there's no going back now, with another great roar the beast's large dorsal fin rises above the water and it hits my raft, shattering it into splinters with a single blow, the last thing I see as Megalodon feast upon me, is a giant white tail, wreathed in the red glow of death.
I was just on my raft going over to herbivore island, and I probably guessed it. He killed me and all my games on the boat. It was regular one, but 5 ark days later I came back with another ark boat and you wouldn’t believe what imma bouta say, but there were 2 circling herbivore island. 1 was an alpha and the other was the same on the killed. Long story short, I died trying to escape.
I was coming back from herbivore island with two newly tamed ankys hank anchorman and Andy when out of nowhere this guy attacks our raft and then hank anchorman fell in and was attack by it and a bunch of megalodons. But he survived by swimming to the shore from the middle of the ocean!
So I just got my raft 2 wood foundation a smithy an a furnace with like 125 metal ore cooking on my way to make my base at herbivore island an then….. here comes a leedsich attacks raft doing 5,230 damage to it an guess what here comes another one an I’m getting close to island but before I get there they destroy my raft an here I am in shock I all ways thought they where docile BUT THEY ARE aggressive towards rafts I had no clue till it was to late
So I was doing my daily commute to get metal, footpaw to herb Island and back,on my way back right in front of the southern shores area. This f***** attacked my raft, and killed it. REMOVING ALL MY PROGRESS and my ankylo. RIP smash rocc v.2
When I was a noob I had like a bunch of dodos from a friend and two out of 13 were females so the whole odd tribe counted on them to survive so I made a Dodo cruise all I did was make a newbie raft and put a pretty cool little dodo pen and we went from one half of the island to the other I was in a port at my friends base and I was going to my private shack/dock and off I went then DUN DUN DUN! This leed came out of nowhere and took a literal chunk off the dodo pen taking 5 dodo lives with em and it just happened to be the one spot I put all my crates so I had nothing but useless dodos and then a Meg followed by two others killed 2 dodos from destroying the railing making the dodos fall off from me still driving the raft all the dead dodos were males so I only had 4 males and 2 females left if they survive then I might be able so save the dodos ( also no I don’t want to just tame more dodos I want to make mutated huge dodos so shush ) so my raft away until I got attacked by a sarco :/
Okay this is less of a tip and more of a story, so me and my cousin were rafting around in the center and some kind of fin came out the water. I was like “yo it’s an alpha meg” and the some giant fish bumped the boat and we started sinking and then shortly after died!
So i was on my raft with my meglodon following me, I see THIS IN THE WATER and i stay on the raft cause i think its okay. Big mistake, it starts to shake my raft and I’m like “what was that??” It was pretty quick for my raft to break and after it broke i was like “ NOOOOOO” cause guess what my meglodon didn’t have a saddle, we were far in the ocean and shortly BAM! I got killed by some manta pack
