The Element Dust is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

Element Dust can be gathered by killing and harvesting Enforcers or by harvesting Lampposts, Benches and Tables in the Sanctuary. A Doedicurus can harvest Element Dust from Sanctuary's objects such as lamp posts extremely efficiently, automatically destroying and gathering them as it does with stone; carrying one with an Argentavis or Quetzal and letting it hit lamp posts as you fly through the city can be an extremely fast way of gathering large quantities of Element Dust, Crystal, and even Electronics.

Another way of getting large amounts of Element Dust, Element Shards and pure Element, is by finding and defending the Element Nodes spawned around the Wasteland. Element Dust can then be crafted at a City Terminal by breaking down (at an 80% loss) Element and its shards into 200 and 2 dust each, respectively.

Rarely, some Gachas can even produce a moderate quantity of Element dust from their Gacha Crystals as a production option.

Unlike Element, Element Dust can be transferred, and then used to craft Unstable Element Shards and Unstable Element.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Element Dust is used to craft the following items:

It is also used to power the Scout and Enforcer.
