Phoenix Revealed And Some Ark Official Servers Will Be Wiped August 29th


Among the most mys­te­ri­ous of all fly­ing crea­tures, much of what is known about the Phoenix exists in leg­ends which have been told through gen­er­a­tions. These myths have often changed through the pass­ing of time, but one con­stant is the belief that fire rep­re­sents cleans­ing and renew­al. The Phoenix embod­ies this process through its ever­last­ing cycle of death and renewal.

Extreme heat-waves in the desert seem to ini­ti­ate the rise of the Phoenix, while the end of this so-called “Super Heat” pre­cip­i­tates the crea­ture’s rever­sion into ash­es. While the Phoenix seems ambiva­lent to most wildlife, if pro­voked, its feroc­i­ty is evi­dent in its abil­i­ty to set tar­gets aflame with a sin­gle bite.


Attempt­ing to paci­fy a Phoenix is, quite lit­er­al­ly, play­ing with fire. The Phoenix must be con­tin­u­al­ly set ablaze in order to be tamed. I’ve seen many turned into dust and ash in the attempt. After it has been paci­fied, the Phoenix will regain its vital­i­ty when it is aflame! Although its com­pact size pre­vents the Phoenix from being rid­den, its aggres­sive enflam­ing has proved to be invalu­able in bat­tle. Plus, it can quick­ly roast up tasty cooked meat and refine raw ores at any time, as a liv­ing furnace!

This weeks com­mu­ni­ty crunch com­bined with Ark digest #48, includ­ing a Q&A with Wild­card co-founder and co-cre­ative direc­tor Jere­my Stieglitz, the full Q&A can be found here. Here are a few standouts

Sur­vivor Rai­fu­For­Lai­fu, asks “Can we get a dam­age reduc­tion on The Drag­on’s fire breath pret­ty please with extra sprin­kles on top? 25% feels a tad ridicu­lous. Thank you”

It shall be done!” — Jeremy

Sur­vivor Pal­adinKong asks, “Will those who have the game now in ear­ly access be able to get the phys­i­cal items that come with the col­lec­tors edi­tion, like the dossier book, with­out hav­ing to buy anoth­er copy of the game?”

The com­pa­ny that man­u­fac­tures & dis­trib­utes the Collector’s Edi­tions (which is not us direct­ly) has told us that when they sell out, they can man­u­fac­ture more that are CE-only (and thus cheap­er) with­out the game includ­ed. I think we’re close to sell­ing out, so we’ll bug them about it now.” — Jeremy

Survivor legendaryc4 asks, “can console players get the option to hold back the left stick to slow flyers down? Very big here for me as building high up can be a pain.”

Yes, we’ll add this. Been on the todo list for a while but darn the limited buttons available on gamepad. What you suggest seems like a good way to go” with it. — Jeremy

As August 29th approach­es, many peo­ple are wor­ry­ing about the lega­cy servers they play on. Stu­dio Wild­card announced they will have a list of all the lega­cy servers that will be wiped on the 29th and re-pur­posed. We will also post the list the day it comes out. At least you get a lit­tle bit of time to move if you would like to stay on lega­cy servers.
