The Valentines Dino Candy is an item in ARK: Survival Evolved's Valentine's Day 4 Event.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Valentines Dino Candy are a Event Item with the Valentine's day 4 event and can be used to give a tamed dinosaur a random coloring. To do this you need to put this in your tame and force feed. When done they will obtain a random color pattern.

Like with all event Dino Candies like Festive Dino Candy, it will give your tame a unique look. It has a temporary color change with a count down of 20 hours. It gives you the exact color of each 5 regions it will dye.

You can still paint over the candy's effect with the Spray Painter or the Paint Brush by using Paint. So if you like some colors more than others, than you could paint over the unliked colors to make your personalized Dino.

Once the candy effect expires, or if the dino was cryofrozen by Cryopod Extinction Icon.png and released, the dino reverts back to its original color. Offsprings from eggs and gestation will not inherit any color region affected by the candy effect.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

To obtain the candy you will need to breed two dinos. There is a 25% chance of a drop. It is a 50/50 chance of getting:

The most effective way to get them is taming 1 male Dodo and 15 female Dodos in a 2x2 area. Enable wandering or mating, wait a little, then pick up all the Dodos up with a flyer or hands, and gather all the goodies. You will get 1-2 of each with this method. You can always tame more and switch them out.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • There is a bug in the patch 292.100 where the candies will appear all gray and don't say their color. It will still give the colors to the dino.
  • There is a bug where, once used, if the creature is put into a Cryopod and released when in the Broodmother arena the the dino will be untextured.
