We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: End of Week.
In ARK Survival Evolved everything you craft has durability and will wear-out from extended use if not repaired, and when you leave the game, your Character remains sleeping in the persistent world. Your Inventory physically exists in boxes or on your character in the world. Everything can be looted & stolen, so to achieve security you must build-up, team-up, or have Pets to guard your stash. Death is permanent, and you can even knock out, capture, and force-feed other players to use them for your own purposes, such as extracting their blood for transfusions, harvesting their fecal matter to use as fertilizer, or using them as food for your carnivorous pets!
