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 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.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Element Dust is used to craft the following items:
Notes[edit | edit source]
- It can be harvested from Tek Creatures, Enforcers, and Defense Unit - Sanctuary.
- It can be harvested from Lampposts, Tables, and Benches in the Sanctuary.
- Element Dust can be freely crafted into Unstable Element in the player's inventory, even on other Arks. This can be utilized as cheap way to get Element without fighting bosses.
- After crafting it into Unstable Element , it spoils into Element, making it the the second added way to craft Element. The first being via the Charge Node with the release of DLC Aberration.
