One Time I was traveling on my raft and some jerk on a pteradon picked me up took me a few feet from my raft and dropped me into a megalodon. Never trust a pteradon near you and put a roof on your raft.
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
Ok so, I was up on top of the rock where you can find the giga dossier (near the redwoods) and I was setting up a small base there because it had tons of metal. So I then harvested a metal node and it completely encumbered me so I couldn't jump. But I had to get up a small ledge though and I cant. So I whistled for my dumbass pteranodon named Avion to come to me so I can mount him to fly up, and guess what. He walks off the edge. So my dumbass decided to go after him. I tried to mount him and I failed miserably. I then fall all the way down and died. I respwawn to go and get my trash lower-level bird at my other base and I gotta fly my sorry ass back to the redwoods, because since I'm a dumbass I forgot to put a sleeping bag over there. However once I get back all my stuff is despawned and I gotta start all over. SCREW YOU AVION. (Still kinda my fault but hey, I'm not the one that told him to walk off the edge like a complete retard.
I once had a pteranadon named Nick. He was in level 30 or something. One day we flew to a drop to loot. When we came to the drop there was to high level raptors. I didn’t want to fight, so I tried to fly away. But Nick ran out of stamina and landed right in front of the raptors. We servived the attack, but Nick didn’t have much health left. I left him on the beach so he could get more health. The drop was about ten meters away. Then I heard something and turned around and saw a dilophosaurus attack Nick. I ran to him to save him but it was to late. Just before I killed the dilophosaurus, Nick died. And he died for nothing, because the loot in the drop was worthless. Poor Nick. He was the only flying creature I have.
Okay this isn’t much of a tip it’s more of a story, and a lesson. So when I was a level 14 I wanted one, so I knocked it out and I got to about 90.6 percent with it still almost fully unconscious, then when I was in the final stretch, y dills came over and ate it, if you are taming one, just don’t do it in a full area, just don’t ;-;
So I was trying to tame a theri, and I so happened to knock out a turtle(I got carried away with buck kicking on my level 470 horse) and a pt. Then I was keeping them all knocked out, and the theri woke up though so I killed it in the kill. Then I harvested it’s corpse and tamed the pt. But don’t forget the turtle. I went over and saw it was starving. So I overloaded it with berries and am now keeping those as defenders and taming a 40 stego and 270 raptor
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.
