Baby rock drake food

Ark Rock Drake (Abilities, Controls, Taming, Food, Saddle, Breeding & Location)

Draconis Obscurum is a carnivore of strange origin from an unknown time along with its aggressive temperament.

This creature appears to be kind of reptile which is covered with feathers that grant it the ability to glide through the air and it also possess an ability which was derived from creatures such as the chameleon which allows it to camouflage itself.

These creatures are usually found lurking around their nesting area, guarding their eggs and searching for prey that it can sink its teeth into.

The Rock Drake does not initially chase from a far distance but once a survivor or other tame comes near it or steals an egg from its nest, it will begin its assault as soon as possible.

Tribes that have tamed the Rock Drake have the opportunity of having one of the best stealthiest scouts as well as deadly assailants that the Ark has within it.


Dossier Summary

It is shown that the Rock Drake has adapted well to its environment, having claws for climbing, being able to blend itself with the environment and even having developed the ability to glide around caves.

Carnivores that are reckless usually end up getting hurt when attacking the Rock Drake as they are unable to easily kill it and end up getting a heavy hit from its tail.

Its ability to camouflage makes it feared by many survivors and creatures alike as this allows it to stalk its prey.

Due to its excellence when it comes to adaptation, this creature has even found a way to protect itself and those that own its against reapers and the namely as its feathers will begin to glow and stand, showing that the presence of such enemies is nearby.

1) Camouflage

The Rock Drake begins to camouflage itself and its rider, making it harder for enemies to see them and making them completely invisible to wild creatures.

While this ability is active, the Rock Drake will remain camouflaged and its stamina will start to drain over time until the ability is turned off.

Default Controls:

  • C (for PC)
  • Right Stick (for Xbox)
  • Right Stick (for PS4)



With its ability to climb on top of surfaces such as structure or cave walls and ceilings, the Rock Drake may use this at will.

Rock Drakes may toggle between climbing mode and their regular movement but their stamina will be drained as they are climbing or hanging.

Default Controls:

  • RMB (for PC)
  • LT (for Xbox)
  • L2 (for PS4)

3) Glide

Using its large feathers and unique body structure, the Rock Drake is capable of gliding on a whim whenever it pleases to.

Default Controls:

Hold the sprint key while airborne to glide.

  • Left Shift (for PC)
  • Left Stick (for Xbox)
  • Left Stick (for PS4)

4) Pounce

While airborne, gliding or climbing, the Rock Drake may pounce to a surface, damaging enemies and landing quickly to that surface.

If the surface is climbable, the Rock Drake will automatically land there and will be latched on to the wall.

This ability can be used to get to any surface regardless of the angle as long as the surface is within range which is shown when there is a targeting reticle.

Default Controls:

While in the air or climbing a surface, a targeting reticle will be displayed as you destination for the pounce.

  • LMB (for PC)
  • RT (for Xbox)
  • R2 (for PS4)

5) Sense Reaper (Passive)

Rock Drakes can sense the presence of Reapers and will show this by appearing very cautious, having their feathers pointing up and glowing while looking around repeatedly.



The Rock Drake can get around anywhere due to its ability to climb, swim, glide and move very fast while even remaining camouflaged, making it extremely safe to travel on.

Damage Dealer

This creature does provide a good amount of damage and can even be equipped with a Tek Saddle which can cause a lot of damage to both creatures and buildings.


With its ability to camouflage, climb and glide, it can easily get into areas that are heavily protected as they can sneak past defenses with ease.


Being able to be equipped with a Tek Saddle and position itself almost anywhere, the Rock Drake is a very strategic mount to have during raids as it can angle itself while firing projectiles from its Tek Saddle.


The Rock Drake can carry an additional passenger and has a good amount of weight which allows its owners to bring equipment or resources with them and make use of its ability to get around quickly for easy transportation of them.

How to Tame Rock Drake?

Rock Drakes cannot be tamed and instead must be hatched from eggs that have been stolen from wild Rock Drake nests.

In order to get a Rock Drake, you must steal a Fertilized Rock Drake Egg from one of the nests that are lying around and hatch them later on.

Beware that if you take a Rock Drake egg, they will respond aggressively and attempt to kill you so be sure that you are ready.

Once the Fertilized Rock Drake egg has been taken back to your base or hatching area, you may then hatch the Rock Drake from the egg and later on raise it from being a Baby until it is a full grown Rock Drake.


The Rock Drake cannot be tamed by knockout and a certain kind of food and once a baby is hatched or a fully grown one is owned by a tribe, it will normally eat any kind of meat provided.

The Rock Drake is probably one of the most versatile mounts that are out there, being able to catch up to anything that it is chasing by means of climbing, gliding or simply outrunning them.

Many questions the origin of this creature but behold its beauty and amazing ability to blend in with the environment which other tribes make use of when in war or special raids.

Having a Rock Drake provides any tribe with a large benefit due to its ability to get around quickly and partake in raids and battles due to its unique abilities.

ARK Aberration Guide: How to Tame a Rock Drake

Where to find Rock Drake eggs and how to hatch them and tame the baby in ARK Aberration.

The Rock Drake is a crazy new creature in the Aberration expansion for ARK: Survival Evolved. It can climb, it can glide, and it can camouflage itself and its rider. With the craggy landscape of Aberration, this is the perfect all-around mount for getting around and staying safe.

However, this bad boy is not easy to tame. In fact, you can't even tame wild ones; you must instead steal a Rock Drake egg and hatch it, much like Wyverns in Scorched Earth, but with their own twist.

In this guide, we'll go over everything from finding a suitable Rock Drake egg to incubating and hatching it to raising and feeding the baby until it's ready to be saddled and ridden. It's a lengthy process, but it's well worth it. Let's dive in!

Rock Drake Egg Locations in ARK Aberration

Rock Drake eggs are found in a rather dangerous location on the map, so before you even attempt to snag one, you need to make sure you're prepared. Radiation is the main concern, which means you'll need a Hazard Suit in order to deal with the environment. That engram won't even unlock until you are around level 60, so be patient and bide your time rather than risking your life trying to snag an egg.

Once you're equipped with a Hazard Suit, head to around 56/57 on the map, and you'll find a ravine with glowing pink eggs scattered along the cliff walls. These are the Rock Drake eggs you're looking for. Simply grab an egg that's around the level you want and jet out of there before the angry momma Rock Drake finds out what you've done.

How to Incubate and Hatch a Rock Drake Egg in ARK Aberration

Once you and your Rock Drake egg are safely back at base, it's time to incubate it so it can hatch. Rather than requiring a warm environment to incubate in, however, Rock Drakes need a cooler environment. The best way to achieve this is to create a square of Air Conditioners all blasting cold air into a 2x2 space.

The egg will need some time to incubate between all those air conditioners, but the baby needs food when it hatches, so be sure to spend this time collecting it. Since babies can't eat solid meat, you'll need to hunt down something a little more special.

How to Raise a Baby Rock Drake in ARK Aberration

Baby Rock Drakes need a good helping of Nameless Venom in order to grow into adulthood. This is a rare drop found by killing the Nameless creatures that pop out of the ground and attack you. The amount you'll need varies depending on your server settings, but pick up about a dozen to be on the safe side. You can always go out and get more if you think you'll run out before the baby matures. Remember that it can be stored in the Preserving Bin but not in the Refridgerator.

Once the Rock Drake hatches, place some Nameless Venom in its inventory. If it refuses to eat initially, you can force feed it similarly to how you can force feed a baby Wyvern. Then, simply give it time, make sure it has plenty of room to grow, and keep it safe from harm as it slowly matures into adulthood.

Once it finally becomes an adult, you can slap a saddle on it and ride around the map on your new, terrifying Rock Drake. It can scale walls simply by walking up them, glide by leaping from cliff faces and high places, and cloak itself and its rider by pressing the crouch button.

Read "Spies and all the rest" - Danil Koretsky - Page 13

- Wow! You didn't even know the name before! Pole put in. - I jammed one vodyaru and did not compost anyone's brains!

– Did I not compost? Bruno was surprised. - P ... breathe! Can't be! I always compost! Especially like you! And why, guess? BUT?

Bruno paused.

- Because I'm fourteen times smarter than you!

And he laughed loudly, heartily.

Underground expedition

Everyone's heart was pounding right under their throats: they hadn't gone down to "minus" for a long time, trained organisms had lost the habit of the inhuman conditions of the underground. In addition, at any moment they expected tricks. At first they didn’t burn the lanterns, they were afraid. They moved almost by touch.

- What to do if they start shooting? Rusty asked. - Lie down on the ground? So there's mud up to the ankles.

“Okay, not waist-deep shit,” snapped Finger. Who will shoot at you?

“In war, a sniper always chooses a commander,” Zarembo said. - And who is the most elegant among us? Rusty!

Indeed, they were wearing ordinary fishing overalls, while Seredov was wearing special “underground” attire similar to that used by the “tunnel workers”.

- They don't give offensive nicknames to the commander! Seredov objected. And he complained: “My legs don’t go anymore ... And it seems that someone is watching ...

- This is the usual fear of a “minus”, - said the experienced Zarembo.

When we went out into the tunnel of the transport narrow-gauge railway and found no one there either - not a sentry, not even an old watchman - after that we got a little bolder. Soon the rails began to show through the debris, and there they stumbled upon the first grate. Plain steel grating welded to old tubing fittings. She didn’t even reach the very top, there was a ten-centimeter hole left there. Cut in a couple of minutes. The battery "Bulgarian" squealed so that it was probably heard in the underworld. But everything worked out, no one ran away. Here they already turned on the foreheads at full power, spoke out loud, they stopped being afraid at all. Although no, Seredov was still somehow strangely twitching, sweating and looking around all the time.

– What are you worried about, Rusty? Zarembo asked cheerfully.

- I don't know... Unusual... You, of course, are seasoned underground wolves... But I have less experience. Do you know how pilots are distinguished? On the fly of the clock! One has a thousand hours in the sky, and the other has a hundred. Here we have the same difference.

- Pilots are distinguished differently: who flies and who just sits in the cockpit. You won't have to go down below Buchenwald. You will be bored there and wait for us. Did you get an inflatable pillow?

- Which cushion? Seredov was offended. “Do you think I’m going to sleep there?”

Pylchenko could not resist, he also quipped:

- What's wrong with that? You sit, there is nothing to do ... He inflated the mattress, spread out the pillow, you look - the time will pass faster. Especially if a dwarf beauty comes out wearing only a loincloth...

He was against taking Rusty: he was always in the second squad and was not distinguished by professionalism. But Zarembo insisted. Either the three of us, he says, or go alone. The third is insurance just in case. Unlearned, apparently, Zarembo to take risks in private security. But how will Rusty help them? There is no communication with the surface, besides, neither the Ministry of Emergency Situations, nor the ambulance, nor the sappers at "minus two hundred" simply physically will not go down. So it's just complacency. And Zarembo does not take into account one more thing: in the event of an emergency, even if his life is saved, then he will live it not in an apartment on Sokol, cozy restaurants, not on a hippodrome, but in a multi-seat barracks, in a colony ...

Well, Rusty has always been used in supporting roles. I walked in conjunction with more experienced ones, did not show initiative, did not rush to lay routes. He doesn’t really know the “Minus”, he has never been in serious alterations, and he was of little use in ordinary descents: he carried out commands for secondary tasks - and nothing more. But there are simply no other people. The special detachment "Tunnel" has long been disbanded, the fighters scattered in all directions. Striped died, Rudin became isolated after that catastrophe, did not want to talk to him, they quarreled with Leshy ...

Goblin! Who would be useful! No one knows better than his “minus”. He would bring and take. But he is too correct, ideological… Back then, in 2011, in the Vault, when they wanted to share everything honestly, he spoke one against four: “I won’t let you plunder, marauders…” He grabbed the trunk, threatened to overwhelm everyone. And he would have failed - the commander does not throw words into the wind! Only they, all four, turned on the back. True, in the end he allowed to take a bullion ...

Then it seemed to Pylchenko - enough for a lifetime, but it turned out that it was enough only for a "kopeck piece" not in the most elite house and, of course, without a view of the temple or the Kremlin. And appetite, as you know, increases with food. Here we go again. With Rusty. They managed to find him alone, this drake ... In the real estate office on Leninsky, he was chasing something - it seemed that he was keeping some kind of account. Or maybe he went to look at apartments, brainwashed sellers and buyers ... It doesn’t matter. Exactly the same as he was: neat, polite, wedge-shaped muzzle. To put it bluntly: Rzhavy was not happy when he saw his old colleagues.

- In "minus"? In "minus two hundred"?! Why else is this? No, guys, I'm on a different topic now...

But when they talked about gold, my eyes immediately lit up.

- No problem, guys, you have to!

Rusty doesn't know about the five ingots they took two years ago. And good. We decided not to speak yet. In time, perhaps, he will sniff out, but for now it is better to remain silent.

“This is the rift,” said Finger, pointing to a roughly patched hole in the concrete tunnel. - Through it, Leshy fell here when he followed Amir. At the top, the track broke through, and he gasped here along with hot water.

Zarembo looked up.

- How did he not break his own head.

“Maybe he got a little fucked up, who knows,” said Thumb. - As the detachment was disbanded, nothing is heard about him.

“Yes, I saw him once,” Zarembo recalled. - He went into one house on Leningradka, we have a guarded facility there. All business-like, muzzle stone - as always, in short ...

- What does Leshy have to do with it? Seredov asked. Is he in too?

He shone his finger into Zarembo's eyes: don't talk! But he just frowned.

Calm down Rusty. Goblin doesn’t know anything,” said Thumb. And you shouldn't know!

- Wow! Zarembo barked. “We’ll capitalize the rest of the gold without him!”

- What does "remaining" mean? Seredov did not understand. Has anyone already come for him?

A finger imperceptibly slammed a boot on Zarembo's leg.

- No. That is, we hope that it is in place. We can't know for sure, it's been a long time.

– Ah, said Seredov.

This time Zarembo, fortunately, kept silent. It finally arrived.

...Slightly further to the right a narrow adit went. Finger consulted his map, which he once drew from memory. The gallery was not on the map. Maybe I just forgot to tag. Or maybe they pierced it after them and put up a crossbow with a motion sensor there.

- Stop!

They froze in place.

- What? Seredov's anxious whisper.

“Stop and be silent,” Zarembo boomed in response.

Finger picked up a good piece of concrete from the floor, walked along the wall to the entrance to the adit, and threw a stone there. He fell with a thud somewhere in the darkness. Nothing else. So what does it mean? That there is no crossbow? Or that its sensor does not respond to a small object? The finger took a chance, shone inside. The adit ended in a dead end about five meters from the entrance. Maybe it's... what's it called? Zamurovka. But who, besides Leshy, will understand such subtleties?

“Come on,” Zarembo said in a commanding tone. He said confidently, as if everything was clear and understandable to him.

Rails, rails, sleepers, sleepers, a belated train is coming…

They haven't been here for two years. This is a long time - up there, on earth. Moscow changes almost every day. Something is being restored, something is being demolished, new neighborhoods are being built. And everything is still here. Even strange. Or maybe it just seems.

The light of the lanterns slid along the rails, rummaged through the damp concrete, over the heaps of rubbish piled up against the walls. Finger crouched, ran his hand along the surface of the rail.
