Pachyrhinosaurus Gas/Pheromone/Essence ability[edit source]

Hey playing my solo file on ark well I just learned something. While when you press the c button or for the Raging Essence to make other animals attack the Dimetrodon just ignored me and my Pachyrhio. Also when I used the Raging Essence on a Trilobite and a Coleacanth it made them run away. But the Calming Essence made the Trilobite and Coleacanth stop running.

And even though the the Raging Essence didn't enrage the Triceratops When I attacked the the Calming Essence made them stop attacking. Also the Calming Essence didn't stop the Dimetrodon and the Carbonemys from attacking me after I attacked them. I think that players need to know what creatures you can and can't enrage with the Raging Essence. I also think that players need to know what creatures you can and can't not calm with the Calming Essence. User:JamesEdwardFrank (talk), 2:07 February 7 2019.

I'll see about adding that info tomorrow. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 02:30, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

You replied to me about a message that I left for someone else[edit source]

You replied to me on Flachdachs wall when the message was for that user well I want to tell you some info that I have gathered and am still gathering on the Sabertooth Salmon. The Oncorhynchus is a Pacific Salmon and the only time the Wikipedia page of the Oncorhynchus mentionsthe name Sabertooth Salmon is with a link that takes people to page of the Oncorhynchus rastrosus. The Oncorhynchus rastrosus AKA the Sabertooth Salmon is extinct it lived in the Late Miocene to the Early Pliocene. The Sabertooth Salmon's Dossier mentions the Miocene and Wikipedia says that the Pliocene happens in between the Miocene and the Pleistocene. Also the Sabertooth Salmon's Dossier mentions the Pleistocene which happened after the Pliocene.

So the Oncorhynchus isn't the extinct Oncorhynchus rastrosus. JamesEdwardFrank (talk), 4:49 February 4 2019 (UTC)

Ok, I was kinda speed reading that message but I wanted to help Flachdachs out since he was getting a lot of messages. I didn't know that Oncorhynchus rastrosus was a completely different creature from Oncorhynchus. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 21:59, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
The Oncorhynchus is still alive if I am reading things correctly on Wikipedia while the Oncorhynchus rastrosus is extinct. So like many other creatures in the game the Sabertooth Salmon is based on an extinct animal. Not living one like the Oncorhynchus AKA the Pacific Salmon. Sorry if I probably gonna overboard with the hole thkng. But I would like to say thank you if this mistake gets fixed.
Also it's good that you decided to help Flachdachs. Thanks and I am sorry if I went overboard with the hole thing.JamesEdwardFrank (talk) 5:13 February 4 2019 (UTC)
Sure thing, feel free to message me too. I may not be around at times but I'll notice if someone messages me now. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 23:12, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Alright sure no problem that's ok. Hey let me know in the future when the link on the Sabertooth Salmon page is corrected to Oncorhynchus rastrosus ok let me know. Until then take care and I wait for message on that whenever someone gets around to it. Also hope that you have better days then what I have been having. JamesEdwardFrank (talk) 6:48, February 4 2019
Oh, I didn't notice that the link hadn't been fixed. It's fixed now. Feel better. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 23:48, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks also truly sorry if I feel like I was nagging about it. I am nice guy but must of the time comments like the one's that I left led to someone butting heads with me. Thank you for that and thank you for not getting into a fight with me like most people after messages like these. JamesEdwardFrank (talk) 8:08, February 4 2019

I Learned Something New[edit source]

So as I was playing Ark and even though I know Trilobite's can only be tamed using a Fish Basket. I decided to test to see if I could tranq one I put enough tranquilizer arrows in that thing to tranq an Allosaurus and the thing wouldn't get knocked out. The Trilobite was level 36 and earlier I knocked out a Titanoboa level 32 so would be ok if I or it doesn't have to be me to add info mentioning that a Trilobite can't be knocked out with tranquilizers. JamesEdwardFrank, (talk) 7:27 December, 20 2018 (UTC)

Categories[edit source]

I just want to mention and point out something that I just found on here I found Giant Queen Bee listed in untameable creatures category. But the Giant Queen Bee can be tamed so I was wondering if that can be fixed. X-Mutant (talk) 1:33, December 9, 2018 (UTC)

Fixed. If it doesn't show up in the category, it's because of a caching issue. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 20:08, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. The reason why I brought that up because I remember when I tamed a Giant Queen Bee I tried to knock out the drone bees then when that failed I tried to tame them by placing the Rare Flower in the last box to try passive tame but that didn't. Then after tamed the Queen Bee then the drones counted as being tamed. So thank for fixing that to let people know that the queen can be tamed. Oh yes speaking queen insects and taming since the drone bees are only tamed when taming the queen bee. Would that work if or when the Titanomyma Queen is added to the game. Because I see the Titanomyma Queen mentioned in Helena Walker's dossier's and notes/Trivia for the Titanomyma page and the Giant Bee page.
Helena Walker said that the Titanomyma can't be tamed because of their hive mind and I believe that. Because I can't tame the drone woker bees but when I tamed the Queen Bee the workers counted as being tamed. The Titanomyma are only untameable because no queen has been found the Titanomyma Queen has mentioned a few times on here and what want to know is has anyone tried to convince Wildcard into finally get around to releasing the Titanomyma Queen. It's been something that they have been leaving fans in the dark about for to long. X-Mutant (talk) 4:13, December 9, 2018 (UTC)

Need help editing Infoboxes[edit source]

Hey I was wondering how can passive tame be added to the Giant Bee Infobox because I don't know how to do that. The Troodon Infobox says live creatures in the preferred food section of the Infobox and when people click on it the words live creature take the user to the Troodon's taming content. Well I was wondering if that can be done with the Otter and Hesperornis. Have their Infoboxes say preferred food dead fish and then when a person clicks on the words dead fish it takes them to the Otter and Hesperornis taming. Let know about those because I think that information would be good for the Infoboxesand make them more complete. X-Mutant (talk) 6:10, November 7 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't see your message. For the creature infoboxes, just let me do those because they are special and can get messed up. For other infoboxes, go to the infobox template page and check what parameters are available, then add those. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 12:54, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you oh yes when do you think Passive Tame will be added to the Giant Bee Infobox. Also I know that adult Wyverns, adult Rock Drakes and adult Reapers can not be tamed. The taming page says raise tame does it count as a passive tame or would it be better to have raising listed as taming method in the their Infoboxes. Again thank you for the advice and for helping with the Otter and Hesperornis I just want to know if you can add more useful info to other boxes. X-Mutant (talk) 11:33, November 11, 2018 (UTC)
It has been added. As for the raise tames, we do not add anything there since raising does not count as taming in the game data.The Wayward Wolf (talk) 17:58, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you also I was wondering if I could bring up more information about the Otter and Hesperornis I know that it is mentioned that the bigger the fish the faster and better the tame is. Well when I tamed a level five Otter with a big fish it was tamed really quickly. But when I have been trying to tame a level 60 Hephaestus and level 50 and level 25 and level 100 with big fish the taming was taking so long that another creature or my own tames would kill the Hephaestus. So do you think if possible somewhere or sometime in the future you could add Feeding Interval Time for the different levels of Otters and Hesperornis. Because knowing long it takes to tame different creatures with different levels is really handy and helpful. It has been making me so upset that wild animals keep coming along and killing the Hesperornis before I can tame them all because the taming is taking far to long. Sorry I know that this doesn't have anything to do with Infoboxes but I'm getting really angry that I haven't had the luck of taming a Hesperornis. X-Mutant (talk) 9:34, November 11, 2018 (UTC)

Crushing Amber[edit source]

Can you address crushing of the amber when it produces "potent dust" ? I dont know what it's used for — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.30.21.0 (talkcontribs) at 09:14, 22 June 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Potent dust is used to level up, there should be an option to “absorb” the dust — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.91.181.192 (talkcontribs) at 09:52, 22 June 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Yo, you've removed one of my adds on the torch[edit source]

I see you have fully removed my torch addit. However I can see you find this unlikely. Just try it yourself before claiming its impossible. I've been hatching eggs this way for ages. Especially seeing they last long enough to hatch a wyvern egg. I never really looked at how long a torch could last and if it matters what durability it has. However a torch does go into a standing torch. I can even show you a picture oe video of it working on them. However I don't know if it would be possible in this chat. So yeah, just check it yourself before judging if it's true or false. Because I have been seeing it work for even longer times. I just don't know how much longer it lasts. To play safe I posted 3 Ingame days. Because somewhere else in the wiki it falsely states 4 minutes. However if I maneged to hatch wyvern eggs with one in them, how does a 4 minute last on an offal server wyvern egg?

I believe you were thinking of the Standing Torch, because an item cannot be its own fuel source. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 20:49, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Hey I understood their note. I narrowed the information regarding using the handheld Torch.png Torch as fuel for the Standing Torch.png Standing Torch. And with this being an old comment I think the issue is resolved and this whole comment section can be removed if you want to clean-up some insignificant issues on the page.Terronscibe (talk) 02:21, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Undoing revisions on Taming Bonus[edit source]

Hi there,

Noticed you removed taming bonus statistics on numerous pages even though they are still being used, why is that?--— Preceding unsigned comment added by Maedean (talkcontribs) at 16:36, 16 July 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Sorry about that as well as the delayed reply, but I don't seem to remember why I did that. --The Wayward Wolf (talk) 15:16, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Now I remember. I deleted those statistics because those creatures aren't tameable, they are raisable though and therefore do not receive bonus stats. If this isn't the case then I'll leave it.--The Wayward Wolf (talk) 19:54, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Tek cave ( inventory ascession )[edit source]

Hi Wolf! There are some contrast in the note. plz fix it :) thx

1 When you ascend, all the tames you brought in the caves will teleport to the entrance of the Cave (Make sure you take out anything valuable before ascending because anything left inside their inventories will be lost).

2 You will want to store ALL your player items in a dino so you will not lose them on Ascension. All the items you place into a dino's inventory before Ascension will guarantee no items lost. Ideal for players using Tek gear and do not want to craft them again after Ascension. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.229.3.83 (talkcontribs) at 14:13, 25 September 2018. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Ok, I removed the part saying that the tame's inventory would be deleted. As far as I know, this is not the case --The Wayward Wolf (talk) 17:01, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Unicorn rarity[edit source]

You mention in the dossier for the unicorn that the rule that theres only one unicorn per server (wild or tamed) is not longer the case. Could you please provide me a link where u found that information or explain it. Me and my tribe we are not sure what to believe since we never find a wild one on official and it would be nice to know for sure whats the case now. Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anmei222 (talkcontribs) at 09:30, 29 September 2018. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

What I know about Unicorns is that on official, once a Unicorn has been tamed, another one will spawn. Only one can be tamed per tribe though. This can be changed on unofficial/singleplayer. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 11:30, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
But could u provide a link please? The latest information i have was the tweet from Jen where she confirmed that there can only be one, wild or tamed, and another one will only spawn if the tamed one is transfered or killed. And I didnt find any information where it says they changed that rule and i'm realy curious about it. So if you could tell me where u found it i'd highly appreciate it. (Sry to bother u with unicorns so much xD)— Preceding unsigned comment added by Anmei222 (talkcontribs) at 13:22, 29 September 2018. Please sign your posts with ~~~~
I don't have a link but does she specify official servers? The Wayward Wolf (talk) 13:48, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
She didnt and I cant find any information that it got changed. I know on unofficial you can increase the rate, I even saw a post where somebody said the file would be broken on private. But i'm pretty sure its not the case on official and I never saw a wild unicorn thats why I think what Jen said is still the rule.
I cant provide you the link here but enter "Ark unicorn spawn rule" in google and you will find her tweet in the survivetheark forums, somebody posted it Anmei222 (talk) 14:54, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
I honestly don't know, I've seen the tweet. If no changes have been mentioned, then I guess there can only be one per official server. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 15:00, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

extinction info[edit source]

oi stop just deleeting my changes an help me flesh it out so it fits better in the wiki?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jadeplaysgames (talkcontribs) at 12:00, 21 October 2018‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

There is no "king kaiju titan" or whatever confirmed to be coming to Extinction.The Wayward Wolf (talk) 12:05, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I looked at the source and it is in no way reliable. If that was coming to Extinction, it would have been found in survivetheark or by a source tweeted out from the devs.The Wayward Wolf (talk) 12:09, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
Kaiju is just another name for Titan because it is in Japanese. The main Kaiju they speak about is the boss, not another titan.The Wayward Wolf (talk) 12:11, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Pursuits[edit source]

Would it be worth adding the level at which a pursuit becomes available? While this might be a pain to collect, but I think it would be useful. I have been working toward the hunt:argentus, wondering what level was required, 71 by the way. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.45.45.233 (talkcontribs) at 04:56, 28 October 2018. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Of course, if I had known there was a required level I would have inserted it on the template. I'll add it right now. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 12:22, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

(Mek) appearence[edit source]

How do I edit appearence images? I can’t seem to find the place to edit those things. For example the Mek page says region 4 is not used. In the discussion page I already told that I found it, and where it is placed. So, how do I edit those formats? Disguised Koala (talk) 10:13, 19 November 2018 (UTC) Disguised Koala (talk) 10:13, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

The images are changed by uploading to File:Creature PaintRegion0.jpg. As for the Mek page saying region 4 isn't used, someone else is verifying it in-game. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 11:58, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Looking for direction[edit source]

My edits so far have been based on things I personally noticed missing and wanted to fill out, but I’m looking to contribute more in the way of mobile testing and content. Is there a roadmap or place where we have things that need doing? How do you go about selecting a stub to focus on? Realizing I get the most enjoyment out of the game by helping people here and in game and want to get more involved. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thekiltedbean (talkcontribs) at 05:13, 26 November 2018.

What you are doing right now is good enough. If you know of any missing Mobile content, please let me know because then I can add it. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 12:12, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Megapithecus[edit source]

No it's not the same for every creature, the Manticore Boss Dermis doesn't work on the Taxidermy Base! Terronscibe (talk) 16:37, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Then note it in the pages of the creatures which don't work. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 16:39, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
Bosses are significant. Fine. Okay, if it doesn't work I'll make a note of it.Terronscibe (talk) 16:46, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Leave my test page alone![edit source]

I know you're the Master Admin. But please keep your mits off my Test Page. Terronscibe (talk) 21:00, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

First off, I'm not an admin. Second off, I'm removing things that add categories. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 21:05, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Is that so? Fine. I hope you will let me continue my experiment on my test page. I want to eliminate individual pages made from individual pieces of a set. And combine them into (1) page. There's no need for a page just for boots~. Terronscibe (talk) 21:19, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
No problem, just be aware of the categories because when you add certain things, the test page can end up categories such as Scorched Earth.The Wayward Wolf (talk) 21:33, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
I see. I'll make a note to avoid making the same mistake twice. Thank-you.Terronscibe (talk) 21:42, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Ragnarok Map Update[edit source]

Is it possible you or one of the other editors could update the Ragnarok resource map? It's very outdated, For example, it shows cactus don't spawn in the SW 1 area when I know they do. I believe oil and crystal spawns are not accurate either. I would update this my self but I do not know how. Modern gamer327 (talk) 22:35, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Parasaur Egg Kibble on Mobile[edit source]

Hey, Just wondering why you've removed my add on the parasaur egg kibble page regarding substituting 1 longrass with 2x rockarrot on the mobile game? I've checked and double checked that it requires 2x rockarrot to make a single parasaur egg kibble. Just trying to save other mobile users the same frustration I faced when thinking something was wrong and I wasn't able to make the kibble. B major 7 (talk) 13:40, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

I didn't remove, just put the info into the infobox. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 16:13, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

Tools in ark mobile[edit source]

Can we get some more of the tools and weapons from PC added like the flaming arrows. Please add flaming arrows — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mikhail7208 (talkcontribs) at 06:13, 10 January 2019‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

I already told you, go to the ARK Mobile Discord and suggest it there. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 11:54, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

New template idea[edit source]

Have you ever considered the addition of an "Orphaned" template? I have a design already in mind, although I'm open to any potential changes...

Human.png Orphaned!
This page has been needing content for quite some time now and it could soon be a candidate for deletion if information continues to be absent

... I'm not sure if this is necessary, but it would probably help with marking pages for deletion, it would also allow people to separate stubs with content from pages without content, as they normally share the stub tag. Personally I think this might act as a step before an article gets marked for deletion... 216.54.120.82 18:34, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Ok, I'll add that. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 19:16, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Kept getting flagged for Vandalism when I tried to add this on Flachdachs talk page.[edit source]

I have the Page mostly decently set up now. I tried to put stuff in Tabbers but realized that it messes with links to the page so I decided not to. so now all it pretty much needs is some text for a few sections,some grammer checks for the sections that we Merged and maybe a few info updates for those also. 160.3.234.202 18:07, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Ok cool. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 18:08, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Cycle through 'wideimage' parameter in infobox[edit source]

How does one go about setting this up? I've tried things that normally work for normal images, but none of them work; they never switch from the first image on the list

Test 2
Ruins of Nosti - Entrance (Scorched Earth) (B).jpg
Location
Test 1

Am I doing something wrong or does it not work for wideimage? 216.54.120.82 12:29, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

No, I have to alter the template so it will work. I'll do it now. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 12:32, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
It looks like it should work, you can look at my main account's test page for an infobox featuring all the images, up to you if we go through with the idea. 216.54.120.82 12:50, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
Looks good to me! Go ahead with it. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 13:01, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

I noticed something on the Biomes page[edit source]

I noticed on all of the Scorched Earth biomes that when I put Desert Cloth in the clothing section that none of them linked to the desert cloth page or had the desert cloth shirt picture. 160.3.234.202 19:10, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

Quick question.[edit source]

Hi its me again sorry if i'm getting annoying by constantly asking you stuff. But do you know if their is a way to make the maps on the Caves page more accurate without having to majorly change the template the maps are using or replacing them with a different template? If not should they be replaced? 160.3.234.202 17:50, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

It's fine to ask me questions. As for your question, what exactly do you mean by more accurate? The Wayward Wolf (talk) 22:35, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
The maps on the Cave page not only have humongous dots that cover up the map but not only that some of them aren't placed very accurately on the map for where the cave actually is (A good example is The Center map on the Caves Page as everything is further left than its supposed to be). I think this is mostly because the maps don't use the in-game map coordinates and instead uses a line of code like this {{Dynamic_coordinate|11|12|green|North West Cave}} that doesn't really display very well for using a map. 160.3.234.202 14:33, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, coordinate system is a bit off, but I'll see about the dot size later. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 15:42, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
