The Dragon is one of the Bosses in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

The Dragon in its Boss Arena
SotF:

The Dragon will appear on the center platform about halfway through the match and will be available for taming. The Dragon will only be rideable for a short time before it will turn on its master.[1]

Ark Survival Evolved:

The dragon is one of the four boss creatures which can be fought in their respective boss arenas, accessible from supply crates and obelisks. In the main game, it is not tamable.




Color Scheme and Regions

The Dragon used to spawn with an extremely diverse range of colorization, however this was changed during the development of the Dragon's Boss Arena.

 

The Dragon always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.

This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Dragon's natural spawn colors.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[2]

Dragon
The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed. The firebreath-attack yields up to 2000 damage (probably depending on the amount of flames the target is covered with) and is applied over a time of 10s. The flame-damage is not affected by the Melee Damage-Stat and thus cannot be increased by level-ups.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dragon is the second largest creature in the game (the largest being is the Titanosaurus), even larger than most of the large creatures such as a Brontosaurus, a DodoRex or a Giganotosaurus.
  • Admin spawned dragons despawn 20 minutes after taming.
  • Its purple and orange color scheme may be a reference to the Spyro franchise.
  • In the Creatures its dossier looks bigger than the Titanosaur although the Titan is the largest.
