One of the most effective ways is to attack the dinosaurs, once you have eliminated them you can take advantage of them to tame them, as they are a great option to use as land mounts. If you are new to the game and are starting to gain experience, you should choose i herbivorous dinosaurs, as they are less lethal enemies than carnivores.

Once you are done with some dinosaurs, you can check the places to find the taps, these are a good option for to gain experience and improve the mount.

If, on the other hand, you want to level up quietly, you can dedicate part of your time to building, so knowing how to do it day or night in ARK is useful for taking advantage of the light that the sun gives you in the game. You can also devote yourself to the collection of food, this will help you gain experience and level up.

What attributes should I level up in ARK: Survival Evolved first?

To level up and gain experience, you need to do things like create, collect and hunt. When you get a sufficient amount of experience to level up, that's when you will receive a certain amount of points. These should be used to improve your player's specific stats.



One of the most important aspects from improving is Health, as it represents your character's state of life. When your health is compromised remember that you can regenerate it by consuming Cooked Meat or Medicinal Drink.

Likewise, the next attribute to level up in ARK is Stamina or Energy, because if this aspect is delayed, your character's actions such as gather resources of any kind, running, swimming and attacking will be compromised.

Also, another aspect as important as knowing the best map in ARK is to level up your skill by combat body to body. In the game, this is the measure of how much damage your character is able to do to other players or enemy creatures.

Is it better to level up violently or peacefully in ARK: Survival Evolved?

Deciding how to go about leveling up may seem complicated, but you have to keep in mind that in both cases it is efficient. However, this may be more relevant to the preferences when playing ARK.


For example, if you decide to start doing level up your player because of the violent way, you should be careful to choose your rivals carefully. Well, alpha creatures would kill you very quickly. Try going for weak or herbivorous dinosaurs like Dodos or Triceratops first. Killing and even taming dinosaurs will give you a great level of experience.

If you decide instead to level up peacefully if you don't want to face large wild creatures you can try activities such as building, gathering food and obtaining minerals such as keratin which carry no risk, in addition to those they already face normally.


You have to keep in mind that this type of business does level up just you and not your pet. However for this you can use a Lystrosaurus in your base.
