Surviving in Ark – Enjoying the scenery while treasure hunting

Recently, I have decided to give Ark another try. So far, I’m very much enjoying myself.

These are my other Ark stories: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

A couple of days ago, we went on a little flying trip. The goal of our trip was to obtain some nice items out of the chests that randomly spawn throughout the island.

The added bonus were the nice places we saw, like this waterfall. We also found a little lake with beautiful blue water.

And we saw a couple of ruines!

These chests we were hunting can contain building materials, but also weapons, dino saddles or blueprints.

With blueprints, you can make the item on the blueprint, without learning to make the item yourself. See, whenever you level up, you gain a couple of points that you can spend on learning to create items. If you want to create something you don’t know yet and you’re out of points, then blueprints are your only other option.

You will eventually have enough points to make plenty of things, but I’m not sure if you’re ever able to learn everything. Either way, the blueprints really help while leveling. The other cool thing is that they might be able to create a better item (more damage, armor, durability, etc.) than you could create without the blueprint.
