What Dino gets the most flint?

Answered by Frank Schwing

When it comes to gathering flint in Ark, there are a few dinosaurs that excel in this task. However, in my experience, the Ankylosaurus and Mantis stand out as the best options. Let me explain why.

1. Ankylosaurus: This dinosaur is a true workhorse when it comes to gathering resources. Not only does it have a high base gathering rate for flint, but it also has a large carrying capacity. This means that you can gather a significant amount of flint before needing to offload it. Additionally, the Ankylosaurus has a wide attack range, allowing it to hit multiple resource nodes at once. This makes it incredibly efficient at collecting flint in large quantities.

2. Mantis: While the Mantis may not have the same carrying capacity as the Ankylosaurus, it compensates with its versatility and speed. The Mantis can equip a pick in its secondary attack slot, which significantly increases its flint gathering rate. Moreover, the Mantis has the ability to jump and climb, making it easier to navigate rocky terrain and reach resource nodes in hard-to-reach places. Its agility and quick attack speed make it an excellent choice for gathering flint in areas where the Ankylosaurus may struggle.

In my opinion, the Ankylosaurus is the top pick for gathering flint due to its high carrying capacity and wide attack range. However, the Mantis is a close second, offering speed and agility that can be invaluable in certain situations.

To optimize your flint gathering efficiency, here are a few additional tips:

– Focus on areas with a high density of rocks. Flint is typically found in abundance around rocky areas, so prioritize these locations when searching for resources.
– Use a high-quality pick. The quality of your tool affects the amount of flint you gather per hit, so using a high-quality pick will maximize your efficiency.
– Consider using a tamed dinosaur with a high melee damage stat. This will further increase the amount of flint you gather with each swing, making your resource gathering even more effective.

With the right dinosaur and tools, gathering flint in Ark can be a breeze. So, grab your Ankylosaurus or Mantis, equip a quality pick, and head out to the rocky areas to stock up on flint for all your crafting needs. Happy hunting!
