First when you get to the cavern you can glide down to the red crystal and mine that for the saddle. Then,you can use an ice pic to climb up to the nest. *When you steal the egg the Rock Drakes will agro so as soon as you grab the egg jump off the nest and glide away from the Rock Drakes* Don’t forget a hasmat suit to protect you from the radiation.
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!
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…
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.
