The Royal Griffin or simply Griffin is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

Wild

Gryphon magnificum is undoubtedly a sight to behold. Many ancient myths tell of various depictions of the Griffin over the ages, but what is never disputed is its majestic and mysterious nature. With the front half of an eagle and the back half of a lion, it is as if these two creatures somehow fused together to form a superior land and air predator.

While one's first instinct might be to approach the creature and marvel at its beauty, that would be a very poor decision. Its range of attacks makes it one of the more versatile predators I've witnessed. If its presence alone isn't enough to intimidate potential hunters, it has the ability to dive from the sky to the ground with such force that it inflicts damage to anyone unfortunate enough to be below it, or carry its momentum back into a rapid uplift.

Domesticated

The idea of pacifying such a beast is nothing to scoff at. Its highly independent nature and disinterest with interacting with humans combined with its power and strength make the Griffin a challenge to domesticate. However, there have been those who are fearless enough to attempt and succeed at this miraculous feat. Once tamed, riding atop a Griffin along with a tribemate passenger, dashing through the air at high speed, is a prize in and of itself.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Many fly around Far's Peak awaiting a respectable survivor.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

It is a hybrid with a lion's body, tail and two hind legs, and with the wings, head, and talons on the two front legs of an Eagle. The females are noticeably larger.




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Royal Griffin's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Royal Griffin. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Royal Griffin will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Royal Griffin's "wings and main body" magenta.

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.[1]

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.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight a Royal Griffin.

General[edit | edit source]

They fly around the mountain, occasionally landing. Most of the time they can be found at the base of the mountain, usually with several partners, but they can be found alone as well.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Probably the best way to tame or kill a Griffin is by building a trap out of 5 dinosaur gateways and 2 gates at each end. From there, it can be tranquilized or killed.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Ranged weapons such as Simple Pistol.png Guns or Bow.png Bows work nicely. They can do a good amount of damage, if the survivor is not respected by them.

Danger[edit | edit source]

They do lots of damage to survivors that aren’t respected by them.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

If the survivor is respected, the Royal Griffin cannot deal damage to the survivor. Using a quick flying mount works good too.

Taming[edit | edit source]

Note that the values are for optimal cases, always bring extra supplies!
For a level-dependent count of resources needed, try an external taming calculator.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Royal Griffin, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • Royal Griffins can only breed with Royal Griffins of the same house. Houses can be distinguished by the last 3 letter of the name.
  • To ride a Royal Griffin, one must be respected. This can be achieved in 3 different ways:
    • Having the survivor leveled over 85.
    • Wearing a Gold Crown Skin (Mobile).png Gold Crown.
    • Sharing the same surname as the Royal Griffin as well as having the survivor leveled over 40.
