TEK elements in ARK
When you deeply research on the TEK Tier of ARK, the update of today presents to you some brand new element powered gear and structures:
TEK Megalodon Saddle! With this thing, your sharks are now able to fire lasers! How cool it is, right?
TEK Turret and TEK Grenades! Your combat and defensive skills will be much more improved. The TEK Turret is regarded as an updated and improved clone of the Auto Turret. It helps you fire much stronger laser and will blast at your enemies with modern TEK AI easily, which will enable for more targeting options. The TEK Grenade is an improved version of the Grenade, giving it the skill to stick to a target as well as dish out explosive damage after a short time.
TEK Cloning Chamber! All survivors are now armed with the skill to clone the creatures that they by using their Element Shards. Level, appearance and stats of the creatures will be retained.
TEK Tier content is known as a wave of sci-fi-themed, end-game features rewarding the players that are hard-working and have futuristic gear and guns. The ones who want to get TEK Tier loot need to pick up the newly introduced Element resource, and you will get it once you finish Boss Arenas, or it’s finer version Element Shards, which you can achieve through generating at a TEK Replicator or grinding Element.
Every single boss is armed with three difficulty levels, including Gamma, Beta, and Alpha. As soon as you beat the respective Boss, you will be awarded exclusive TEK knowledge engrams, element, and other general Boss Rewards. You gather the element, and utilize the TEK Replicator for crafting all TEK items!
Apis Lithohermaea, also known as the Giant Bee, will never wander far away from their nests that you can find in the Redwoods of the Island, the rocky Cliffside, as well as unusually in the Canyons of Scorched Earth. You can catch sight of the drones swarming around the nest in groups, however, if you want to look at the Queen Apis, you would have to break open the nest itself. The drones that can’t be tamed are kind of territorial, they will defend the Queen at all costs. A domesticated Queen lays some new drone eggs, and build a hive that survivors can farm for obtaining honey. The honey is truly a sweet and tasty resource that attracts most of the creatures of ARK a lot. The hunters will use the honey to create deadly traps then lure the wild creatures in for killing or taming.
Daeodon Comedentis is the biggest known kind of Entelodont, an omnivorous family of ancient mammals referred to as “Hell Pigs” sometimes. These creatures are kind of territorial and they won’t be hesitant to attack any survivors wandering around their feeding grounds too close. You will often catch sight of these creatures around the dry grasslands and the sandy beaches of the Island. Multiple tribes have made good use of the Daeodon because of its uncommonly high metabolism. The tribes often use these creatures to attack, battle against other bosses as well as hunt down more parties.
Liopleurodon Magicus is a kind of pleasant specimen. Some rumors that circulate the tribes of the Island state that this creature has magical properties, it has been rare to catch sight of these creatures, so it’s very difficult to decode the old tribe tales from the actual truth. But whatever it is, this mythical creature has been said to have the capability to give an award to the adventurous survivors that succeeded in taming it, the special attribute of luck. Treasure hunting tribes, who have come across the beast, have utilized this magic to gain loot beyond their wildest dreams. Maybe you will wonder why these claims are the tales, the magic of the Lucky Liopleurodon is said to be very strong, it’s impossible to be kept under control, and after some time, exploits this strength to get away.
Kentrosaurus Aethiopicus, a kind of herbivore that is way smaller than its close relative, the Stegosaurus Regium. But, it has a nice formidability even though it’s small. Actually, it is argued that this creature is regarded as the pound for the pound champion of not only the Stegosauria, but also when battling in close-knit confrontations, it towers above the herbivorous dinosaurs in general of the Island. It wasn’t easy for the survivors to ride the Kentrosaurus, due to its spike and hot-headed temperament. However, a domesticated herd of Kentrosaurus can protect a compound and take on lots of bigger carnivores. Only just one swing of its lethal tail is able to impale creatures, together with the threats involved in competing such as spikey enemy, are inescapable.
The Volcano Redesign and the TEK Cave
As of Patch 257, the Volcano eventually gets its long overdue, scorching redesign! Once coming to this crucial destination on the island, the survivors will take a look at a dormant volcano, together with the entryway to the TEK Cave. It will be very hard to get through this blisteringly arduous cave where lots of the most dangerous enemies of the ARK are known to live. Once finishing the cave, with its numerous difficulties, survivors will Ascend.
