You've basically beaten the game once you've managed to get atleast a decent level ptera with a saddle on. That's is if you don't run out of stamina in mid air above hostile territory and get gangbanged by like 5 carnos at once.
What's crazy is that apparently according to ark logic I can build a steel ballista turret AND a high tech heat dispersing ghilly suit 10 levels before I learn how to craft a leather saddle for one of these things? lol up vote this so somebody important fixes that. That's horrible lol
NEVER call it speedy! I tamed one and called it speedy, then logged off. When I came back it was gone. I tamed another (called it speedy 2) and went to the red woods, when I came back and it had disappeared... AGAIN!
Ok so I had a low level pterodon who’s name was Bendy (like from the ink machine). I rode him everywhere and we were really good friends. Than one day my dad was playing and he died at the bottom of the ocean and lost all his stuff. I went loot crate hunting and found one in the swamp. I tried to get it but a kapro knocked me off of Bendy. I killed it and ran back to Bendy to leave but a baryonx had him and when I saw all of the blood... Bendy was killed I survived and grabbed his stuff after killing an angry mob of swamp creatures. I ran to my base, logged off, then cried for about half an hour. It’s been a few months but I still get really sad thinking about my poor lost Bendy the pteranodon. Now every baryonx I see I kill. I’m currently making an unofficial ARK story about my experience and I hope to publish it soon. My tip is basically this: never take a pteranodon into the swamp (or Wyvern scar).
Spent a while taming one and needed 5 more hide to get a saddle, walk up to a dilo and take a stab with my pike, stupid bitch flies in front and I kill it...
Tame up another one and I’m fighting a paracer I take a shot with my rifle, flies in front and takes the bullet, I take another shot, flies in front and takes the second bullet then proceeds to die. FUCK
