Overview[edit | edit source]
Crystal Wyvern Eggs are dropped after two Crystal Wyverns have mated. They can be eaten or used to make Extraordinary Kibble for taming Astrocetus, Griffin, Megalania, Rock Elemental, Thylacoleo, and Yutyrannus.
Acquisition[edit | edit source]
On Crystal Isles, in the desert region, nests of ember and blood crystal wyverns can be discovered where fertilized eggs can be found. The nests are located on the plates around the Desert Wyvern Hive. All wyverns around the nest are aggressive towards the player if you get to close to them. By collecting the eggs, all wyverns become aggressive towards the gatherer. While Crystal Wyverns can be tamed or bred for eggs, this is another way of gathering the Wyverns.
However, unlike the wyverns found at Scorched Earth, Valguero and Ragnarok, the crystal wyverns that resides in this area are faster than their main counterpart, making it virtually impossible to outrun them.
Trap[edit | edit source]
Building a trap near the hive to either trap or kill nearby wild Wyverns can take off some of the pressure when getting an egg.
Using an Oviraptor+Pteranodon/Argentavis[edit | edit source]
Oviraptors will, in fact, steal Wyvern eggs from nests when they are positioned close enough to do so, despite some sources claiming otherwise. (Tested working as of 306.89 on official servers) Consider using Nearest Follow settings to aid Oviraptor positioning. When the Oviraptor grabs the egg simply take it from Oviraptor. This avoids the penalty of angering every Wyvern in a huge radius as you technically did not steal the egg from the nest yourself according to the game. This is probably the safest method, but also probably the most labour intensive as taming even a low level Oviraptor can be outright impossible without already established egg production. Make sure you take the egg from the Oviraptor and do not carry it away while it is still holding the egg. This is reported to both erase the egg and break the Oviraptors ability to grab eggs in the future, likely related to the draw distance of the nest that the game may think the egg is still located at.
Using a Wyvern[edit | edit source]
Using a Tropeognathus[edit | edit source]
If there is one tamed, Tropeognathus are very agile with the jetpack boost on the saddle and can maneuver fast to avoid the Crystal Wyverns' attacks. They can have decent health(around 1500) and enough weight to collect multiple eggs in one run.
Using an Argentavis[edit | edit source]
Argentavis has good weight, making it capable of snagging the eggs, but escaping may be difficult due to its speed. It is advised to choose an egg that has as few as possible surrounding Crystal Wyvern Heir. One could increase the health of their Argentavis and try to tank their way out. Alternatively, by putting points into health, stamina and melee, it is possible to kill enough wyverns to escape. This is not recommended if there are many wyverns nearby, multiple alphas, or if you are using a low-level Argentavis.
Using a Pteranodon[edit | edit source]
The Pteranodon is the fastest alternate flyer, although it is NOWHERE faster than wild Crystal Wyverns and has low health. When escaping, try to fly low, through arches, around rocks, or any other maneuvering to put objects between you and the pursuing Crystal Wyverns. They can sometimes get stuck on the rocks, putting more distance between you and them, and allowing more time to escape. If the Pteranodon's stamina pool is high enough, the 'C'-spin maneuver can be used to create more distance between the Pteranodon and the pursuing Crystal Wyvern Heir as the 'C'-spin maneuver provides a small burst of increased speed.
Alternatively, try lure the Heirs into a set trap designed for Pteranodon size to stop them.
Using a Rock Elemental[edit | edit source]
Rock Elemental has decent health, ranged attack and immunity to wyverns' breath attacks, plus its natural melee damage reduction, wyverns are having headache to deal with this golem. Watch out for Poison Wyvern's projectile, it cannot damage the golem but the player sitting on it.
Using a Griffin[edit | edit source]
With its high base speed, dual passenger seat and skydive ability, the Griffin makes an ideal egg picker mount. Level up stamina and health.
Using a Giganotosaurus[edit | edit source]
Giganotosaurus, when fully imprinted, can outmatch pursuing wyverns in term of brute force. If you are not very confident, any buff such as mate-boost, rider-imprinted and Yutyrannus encouragement may be utilized to ensure the victory. It is not native on Scorched Earth, but can be imported via an Obelisk or a Tek Transmitter.
Using a Bloodstalker[edit | edit source]
Using Turrets[edit | edit source]
At a very high cost, a sufficient number of Auto Turret can wipe out a swarm of Wyverns in mere seconds.
Using Tame Turrets[edit | edit source]
Using a bunch of Velonasaurs on turret mode easily gets the trick done. 20 of them will kill them in seconds, though 10 will do fine if they are high level , healing won't be needed if they can't get hit, for example with a cage they can shoot from but stay out of range from wyvern breaths. Otherwise a Snow Owl or Daeodon will do fine. This is a more time consuming alternative to the turret idea seeing taming or breeding takes a lot of time. But at the same time, it doesn't cost any bullets, and meat for food is easy to come by. Expect some lagg with the amount of particles flying compared to turrets.
Host Tethering[edit | edit source]
If playing on a non dedicated server, survivors can abuse the tethering mechanic to get an egg. Have a player that is not the host grab an egg, then have the host player kill themselves and quickly respawn far away. This will force all non-host players to teleport to the host's location.
Self-Sacrificing[edit | edit source]
If not on Hardcore mode, players can cheat death(as they revive as many time as they are dead). You will eventually obtain an egg by following the steps below:
- Tame a flying mount, any level is ok.
- Go to the wyvern nest, pick an egg and run. The flying mount should be at least able to carry you and the egg out the wyvern trench.
- Get killed by the wyvern, respawn, and find your corpse(or item cache).
- Pickup the egg from your corpse or item cache. If it does aggro nearby wyverns, use Gallimimus or go back to step 2. The wyverns will eventually end up attacking other creatures, going back to their nests, or get deleted for being outside their main habitat for too long.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Eggs stolen from Wyvern Nest are laid by Crystal Wyvern Heir along with their species name. However, the hatched eggs will always be regular crystal wyverns based on the variant stolen from.
- the crystal wyvern eggs are the second eggs obtainable via both stealing it from a nest and by breeding two tames parents. The first one being the Deinonychus Egg .
