DFL’S GUIDE TO ABBERATION CREATURES PART 1: The Rock Drake
Location: the Rock Drake can be found wandering the map, mostly around the blue zone and the red zone, they rarely make their way up to the green zone
How to Tame: you can’t tame a Drake like you tame any other creature, you need to steal the Drake eggs from the nests, much like a wyvern. Make your way to the Drake trench, the deepest part of Abberation, there is where the eggs will be. After finding the eggs equip climbing picks, and climb down to the nest, this is the most dangerous part. If a deal doesn’t spot you, the will when you grab the egg. After you grab it, run back to the spino or karkinos you came down on, and start killing the drakes that are chasing you, and then run, if you can’t get away fast enough then you will probably die. Drakes are fast and deadly and will kill you quite fast in large groups.
Raising: After successfully escaping from the trench, just hope you built twenty air cons before hand. I had an otter and leveled it up by killing baby spinos, and that helped so I only built twelve. While the egg is incubating go out and leave your light pet at home, grab some nameless venom from the nameless, that is what your Drake eats. Make sure you imprint it, and now you have your very own Rock Drake!
Encountering - Drake Cave is hidden in one of the purple forests in Asgard, beware of radiation! It’s situated in one of the corners of the biome I believe.
Egg Stealing - Bring a strong mount, drakes pack a punch! 10k hp tame and 500 base damage recommended for higher level drakes. Andrewsarchus’ protection from radiation and raw power is recommended.
Egg Hatching - Eggs need around 2k hypothermic insulation (very cold) so use a dimetrodon with high melee (found in balheimr) or use air cons.
Raising - Baby drakes only eat nameless venom, mine this from orange cracked rocks in the aberration cave, purple geode cave in the southeastern Vannaland beaches. Drakes also imprint with the venom. Remember to grab some red gems in the cave for the next step!
Saddle - The saddle requires 225 fiber, 350 hide, 125 metal ingots and 85 red gems (remember the last step?) They also have an expensive TEK saddle for those end game players.
Congrats! You now have the perfect traveling/combat/stealth tame! The drake can be used for stealing Wyvern eggs under invisibility mode, and to escape in a pinch. Thanks for reading this ARK Guide!
They lose 1 point of food every 15 seconds, so to time how long until they start starving, multiply their current amount of food by 15 and then divide by 60 twice. This will give you the number of hours left untill the food stat reaches 0.
When taming these, be sure to have enough nameless venom on you. Once you steal the egg, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE. YOU BETTER HOPE YOU HAVE SOMETHING FAST SO YOU CAN ESCAPE OR YOU WILL GET RIPPED APART BY ALL THE MOMMIES AND DADDIES. Back to the point. Once you have the egg, make sure that once you get back to your base you have PLENTY of AC’s ready. Once hatched and raised you will unlock the saddle at level 75 for 26 engram points. These guys can glide, jump super high, boost while flying so you can grab walls, and turn invisible. If this was helpful, please up.
Something sus is happening in Fjourd. These creatures spawn in the Aberrant zones dotted around the map, what’s more alarming is that there are skin coloured rocks that when harvested produce NAMELESS VENOM!!! Please can someone add to wikis or put a tab on here if you find any rock drake nests in Fjourd…
I usually use the Upgrade Station Mod, farm resources like an idiot, upgrade my Armor to the Max, for close combat fights, get sword and do the same.If you don't wanna get to close, upgrade another Weapon of your choice. Then go and slay them and afterwards comfortably steal the eggs.
Hazard Suit (Maxed)
Other Weapon of choice (Maxed)
Enough Ammo (I recommend atleast 100-200)
Friends (If you, unlike me have some playing Ark)
If you didn't level you Melee DMG, I wouldn't recommend close Combat
Obtaining this creature will require you to enter the tek trench where puprle liquid and the nests of these creatures lay past the bioluminescent chamber, there you must steal an egg and raise in a cold environment feeding it nameless venom you can get by killing nameless
