    Hey

    I didn't manage to find any clear info about this so I have to ask.
    Hope Cyrus is around and will see this thread sooner or later.

    I see plenty of new animal parts are dropping and soon enough we'll have quite a few new DNA's for some of the arkadian mobs.

    The big question is.....
    Can this DNA be used on other planets? or only in the new LA's that are and will be for sale on Arkadia?

    I know RT has some Calypso mobs but those MA called "shared mobs", that can be used by any planet partner if they choose to.
    The Arkadia mobs are Arkadia Studios creation and I assume they are connected to Arkadia and can ONLY be found on Arkadia.

    It looks to me like most of these animal parts are not related to DNA. The only exception is the oweko part (tail I think), that one specifically says it's a DNA part.

    Hi Tzepu.

    From my understanding planet specific mob DNA can only be placed in a creature terminal on the planet of origin. So this would mean that the DNA will only be usable on Arkadia.

    Like you said, shared mob DNA can be spawned on any planet so it would be possible to bring in mobs from other planets to these LAs.

    Regards,
    Chris

    I really, really hope the upcoming new Landowner will be wise enough to not bring those shared DNA to the islands. Last thing I want to see is Argo, Exa, Trox or such running around here......

    I discovered Kiana Ear yesterday, but it doesn't have DNA type description (also it doesn't fit into refiner). Can anyone from Ark team confirm that it is not a wrong description and that item is indeed another (useless) regular animal part?

    If all that is true, don't You think it would be a good idea to turn off "discovery" HoF's on items like that? I mean after 3+ years of playing and never looting anything with good MU it is a kind of disappointment to discover 0.24 PED TT food :(

    There are some regular animal parts in the loot that has other uses then DNA. All DNA parts does mention in the description that it is used for DNA.

    Unfortunately the system has no check to disable discoveries of new items so any new item will receive a discovery.

    For example, Asi-16A uses one of the new animal parts. (I'll be stocking my shops with this gun tomorrow :D)

    Would be interesting if someone has looted DNA from mobs located only at Sanctuary or 8C. Wondering if this mobs will stay uniqe or if DNA from those is also lootable.

    well I discovered a 0.02ped halix tail. I thought it was global at first, I was happy and disappointed at the same time. The only one lower than me was a CLD.

    Whats the point of putting a arkadia mob in a arkadia LA? I don't get it...?
    Almost all mobs on arkadia have nice dens, and no tax.. can someone explain?

    Well, lets say someone populates they LA with Ubo (not sure if this is one of the DNA mobs or not, haven't been bothered to look yet, but lets assume it is for the sake of my point).

    Someone who wants to grind them for the ACA mission but doesn't want the hassle of running instances and having to find keys, can go to the LA and blast away happily getting what they want and in return, the LA owner gets a cut of the loot to cover the cost of putting it out in the first place.

    Thats the simplest explanation I can think of...

    For my part, I would like that on Arkadia are only Arkadian mobs to find. A mix up with mobs from other planets it's not what I would like to see. Maybe others think different, maybe not.

    The ubo vesicle was not a DNA part. Looks like a rare component to crafted things. The new long reach 3 bp uses them.

    It seems like MA figured out Ark bps were very good and has now started to nerf the hell out of them. First with the crazy rare drop rate, then with the new skill reqs, now with requiring new components to be added in for any new bps dropping.

    I actually think this change is designed by Ark devs to help hunters and to more fully connect all the elements of the economy. However I wonder how this will work out. It will depend on the relative frequency of the parts and the bps as well as demand for the items. eg weapons have higher turnover than attachments. Right now both the supply and demand for these animal parts is low. Very few currently available bps use them and the drop rate for the parts seems very low. I went hunting for parts for Justin's unl bp for Bullseye4 and was unable to obtain any in from a reasonably large hunt.

    My concern is that the hunter will have trouble selling them and will be inclined to TT them. And the crafter will have difficulty obtaining them and may not be able to use the bps much. Plus when they are available, the rarity of the parts will push MU up and therefore push cost and price of crafted items out of eco range.

    Perhaps the order system is the solution. I just wish the auction house order system was less sucky.
