There are lots of things players can do in Ark: Survival Evolved. One is taming and taking care of various creatures, both of which are exciting stuff to experience. However, among these, Breeding Mutations can be more interesting but a little bit difficult. After all, there are tons of confusions and even misinformation surrounding the process. Fortunately, there's a hefty guide worth checking out.
In a Reddit post from user daymeeunhn, he details the necessary steps Ark: Survival Evolved players must undergo in order to acquire a successful Breeding Mutation. The funny thing is, he noted just how the Ark Wiki lacks this kind of information, which could have been helpful for players. Regardless, here's how it goes.
First off, Ark: Survival Evolved players need to ensure that only one parent has the Mutation score of under 20/20. If players are able to acquire both parents with such score, then better -- their chances of mutations can be doubled. Daymeeunhn notes that when it comes to such process, the only enemy is time -- not mutating cap. For instance, if a player is able to mutate T-Rexes over 10 years while hunting for mutations, it is likely for him to have a T-Rex on the official server. Interestingly, this creature may have more than 500 points in Melee.
It's worth noting that Mutation score in Ark: Survival Evolved basically refers to number shown on a player's ancestry tree. This can be seen with a 0-20/20 score as base. It increases overtime or with every concurrent breeding. Whenever a mutation occurs, two things are believed to happen. One is that the stats mutate, adding +2 levels to the overall amount of tame levels of a specific stat. Second is the color mutation. Contrary to popular belief, the aforesaid two happen all at the same time. In the past, many believe that only one of two will occur.
Moving forward with anything related to Ark: Survival Evolved, Studio Wildcard has just recently tweaked the UI menu of the game, as reported by GameSinners. This was done via an update called v256.73. Apart from it, a couple of bugs and/or issues were also fixed. The video game company is definitely on the roll.
