Wyvern Milk - ARK Official Community Wiki

This article is about content exclusively available in the version on Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Epic Games.

Wyvern Milk is an item introduced in Scorched Earth and also available on Ragnarok, Valguero, Genesis: Part 1 and Lost Island. It is used to feed baby Wyverns. It is gathered by collecting it from the inventory of wild unconscious female  Wyvern or dead  Alpha Fire Wyvern of either sex.


  • 1 Usage
  • 2 Gathering
  • 3 Spoil Times
  • 4 Notes


Used to raise baby Wyverns and Imprint upon them. It should be noted that Wyvern milk is the only food a Wyvern will take before the adult stage. Baby, juvenile, and adolescent Wyverns will not eat raw or cooked meat.

It can also be consumed by players to grant the Insulating Warmth buff, which gives 787 hypothermal insulation and immunity to contracting Diseases. It also grants immunity to the damage-over-time from the Enflamed debuff given by fire breath attacks from  Wyvern and Bleed effect from  Allosaurus,  Giganotosaurus and  Carnotaurus . It does not give immunity to the Enflamed debuff given by lava, nor does it affect the damage from the breath attack itself. The buff lasts for 180 seconds from the time of usage.


After knocking out a female Wyvern, 5 Wyvern Milk can be found in its inventory. Wyvern torpor depletes quickly, so you should loot it as soon as possible because once the Wyvern wakes up with the Milk still inside, it will be gone until the refresh period when it is knocked out again.

It's possible to knock out the same female Wyvern multiple times and receive milk if a refresh period of 1hr is allowed. however it is not possible to keep said wyvern contained within a trap as any conscious wyverns immediately "teleport" to the trench when out of render distance

Alternatively, 50 Wyvern Milk can be found in the inventory of an Alpha Wyvern of any sex, but will have the spoil time of a normal inventory since the Wyvern is dead.

  • Tamed female Wyverns do not have milk in their inventory.
    • Female  Wyvern that have been spawned in and forcetamed will have milk in their inventory. This is true even on Official servers such as when a GM or Dev spawns one in. This milk does not refresh again after that.
  • Wyvern milk gives 1200 food to a baby Wyvern.
  • Can not be stored in a Refrigerator (since 246.3).
  • It does not protect you from the  Ember Crystal Wyvern's fire breath or the  Magmasaur's burn.
  • Placing the item inside  Fenrir changes the spoil timer to 2 days and 2 hours, doubled with the presence of  Preserving Salt.

Can Baby wyverns starve?

Wyverns lose 1 good point per 10 seconds, and 360 points per hour. So 1 wyvern milk will sustain a wyvern for 3.33 hours due to it's 1200 food points. If it's a low level, it might not have 1200 points and have to be force fed milk to avoid starvation.

What happens if you don't feed a wyvern milk?

milk is for imprinting only, you don't need to feed the baby... it won't eat anything that you put in it unless it is forcefed, but then whatever fullness goes up from that drops immediately... so it makes no difference.

ARK Survival Evolved

How to Train a Wyvern

Adult wyvern is not tameable! In order to have a tamed Wyvern, it must be grown from an egg. Below we will tell you how to do it.

Wyvern Breeding ARK Survival Evolved

Wyvern is extremely difficult to breed, but worth the effort. Eggs are extremely sensitive to temperatures outside the incubation range (80 - 90 degrees Celsius), which means that the temperature must be constantly maintained. nine0006

Easy ways to control temperature: fire from campfires, standing torches and air conditioners.

Cubs cannot eat Raw Meat, they require Wyvern Milk.

Wyvern Milk provides 1200 food for the hatchling. A growing hatchling consumes 1 Food every 10 seconds (360 Food per hour). One feeding will keep a Wyvern baby alive for approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes. For a child to fully grow, he needs 93 hours + 5 hours of incubation. Using a simple calculation, we find that it takes about 30 bottles of milk to grow one adult tamed Wyvern.

Yellow in the statistics indicates the level of attachment to the character.

A maturing Wyvern has a need for affection - at a certain time, the creature needs to be given attention (walking, feeding, stroking) - what exactly is needed at the moment will be written above it. The time between these actions is 3-4 hours. Each action increases the level of affection by 4%. If you miss this time a couple of times, nothing terrible will happen. Attachment will not decrease, but will simply remain at the level reached until the next action is taken. Upon reaching 100% affection, the creature will receive an increase in all stats by 20% (except oxygen and stamina), as well as a bonus of 30% damage and defense, if the character who paid attention is mounted on it. nine0006

Wyvern Milk

Wyvern Milk is used to feed Wyvern babies. In the inventory of a stunned female Wyvern, you can find 5 bottles of milk (we recommend not trying to stun a creature above level 47). After killing an Alpha Fire Wyvern of any gender, you will find 50 bottles of milk in your inventory.

Food - 100

Health - 100

Milk spoils quickly: in inventory - 9 minutes, for a tamed creature - 36 minutes, in a heating cabinet - 90 minutes. The time can be increased by 2 times with the help of Canning Salt (in inventory and in the oven).

Milk can be used by players to gain Hypothermia Protection, Immunity to Infectious Diseases, Wyvern Breath Bonus Damage Immunity, but does not affect the one-time breath damage and lava damage.

Read more about how to get milk below.

To get milk, you need to stun a female Wyvern, or kill an Alpha Wyvern of any gender.


Tranquilizer Arrow

The stun function only applies to milk collection!

Wild Wyverns, once unconscious, cannot be force-fed drugs. You can keep the creature unconscious for a while by using more tranquilizers or darts, but this will eventually kill it. nine0006

Tranquilizer arrows are used to stun.

In order to have time to stun the Wyvern, it must be caught in a cage. To do this, build a cage with 6 * 6 with a large entrance gate at the decreasing height of the walls to the opposite wall (the place where your flying creature will fly out. The width of the cells should be no more than 2 * 2. The wyvern can only fly through huge gates. Find a target and make it chase you.Fly into the cage through the gate and fly through.After the dangerous creature flew in, close the door of the cage (preferably on the remote control) and start jamming it with arrows.

After the stun, take the milk from inventory.

Wyvern Egg ARK

There are four variations of the Wyvern Egg: Fire Egg, Lightning Egg, Poison Egg, and Ice Egg.

Food - 35

Health - 35

Endurance - 35

decomposes in 8 days

- 50

STAC- 100

The only way to get an ARK-ARK-ARK-ARKS egg pick up an egg dropped by a wild creature. Trying to grab the egg will cause the wyvern to become angry and aggressive. nine0044 Wyvern cannot be bred.

Ark Wyvern Eggs can be eaten by themselves or used to make Extraordinary Food to tame Astrocyte, Griffin, Megalania, Stone Elemental, Thylacoleo and Yutyrannus.

Wyverns have 38 levels in the wild, giving eggs a maximum level of 190 on official difficulty 5.

Eggs obtained via spawn commands will disappear as soon as they are reset and therefore cannot be hatched. This is due to the fact that the egg has almost no health; if thrown into an area where it can incubate before reaching 0 health, it may hatch. A Wyvern hatched this way will always be level 1. nine0006

One egg can hatch more than 1 Wyvern.

How do I get a Wyvern egg?

An egg can be obtained using well-pumped flying creatures that can carry you away from angry creatures.

  1. + flying creature.
    Oviraptors do steal Wyvern eggs from nests when they are close enough to do so. When the oviraptor grabs the egg, just take it from the oviraptor. Get on a flying creature and fly away. This avoids the punishment for angering every Wyvern in a large radius, since technically you yourself did not steal the egg from the nest according to the game. This is probably the safest method. nine0044 Make sure you take the egg from the Oviraptor and don't take it away while it's still holding the egg.
  2. Wyvern use.
    If you already have a tamed Wyvern, feel free to use it to get more eggs. It is the only flying creature other than the gryphon (on Rangarok) that can outrun a wild Wyvern.
  3. Usage .
    Pteranodon is the fastest alternate flyer, its speed is comparable to the speed of wild Wyverns. However, the Pteranodon has low health. When flying away from pursuers, try to fly low, through arches, around rocks, so that obstacles prevent angry creatures from catching up with you. nine0120
  4. With the help of Tapejar
    Tapejars are very agile and maneuverable. They can lean to the side to avoid attacks. High health and good carrying capacity allow you to collect several eggs in one run. They develop about the same speed as the Pteranodon.
  5. Using Argentavis.
    Medium airspeed can prevent you from safely flying away from the Wyverns. So if you decide to steal Wyvern eggs on Argentavis, choose the nest with the fewest Wyverns. It is better that it be a poisonous species - its attacks are the easiest to dodge. nine0120
  6. With the help of the Griffin.
    High base speed, dual passenger seat and easy maneuverability make the gryphon an ideal creature for collecting eggs (pump stamina and health).
  7. Stone Elemental Use
    The Elemental's high health, attack range, natural melee damage reduction, and immunity to Wyvern breath attacks make it a dangerous opponent for Wyverns. Watch out for the poisonous breath attack - it can't hurt the golem, but it will damage the player sitting on it. nine0006

    Where can I find Ice Wyvern eggs (Rangarok)?

    There are 5 Ice Wyvern nests on the map, all of them in very cold and snowy areas. Therefore, fur armor is a must have. You can also greatly increase your resistance to cold by wearing an otter pet. Where there are Wyvern eggs, there are Wyverns. Your best bet for outrunning them is the high stamina Pteranodon or Griffin. Taking an egg from the nest will cause the wrath of all nearby Wyverns. nine0006

    Nests are located at the following GPS coordinates:

    A - 37.7 / 65.0 - in a circle of trees
    B - 44.4 / 58.9 - open ground
    C - 47.0 / 51.7 - cliff edge
    D - 33.5 / 68.8 - hidden ledge
    E - 42.8 / 55.2 - rocky ledge

    If you don't find nests in these places, it's because there are no ice wyverns there. Nests (and eggs) only spawn when an Ice Wyvern is nearby.

    Reproduction, breeding of baby dinosaurs ARK Survival Evolved | ARK: Survival Evolved

    So, let's figure out how to breed dinosaurs in ARK Survival Evolved and how the process of their reproduction, birth, and growing up of dinosaur cubs works in ARK Survival Evolved! But keep in mind that this is the very first implementation of the dinosaur breeding system in the game ARK: Survival Evolved, it is still quite “raw” and will improve over time and will become perfect by the time the game is released, so do not judge it harshly. nine0006

    Let's look at the algorithm of reproduction, birth and development of dinosaur cubs in the Ark.

    Mating Period

    The first thing to note is that all of your stored eggs will only be good for food. They are not fertilized properly. For an egg to be fertilized, you need two tamed dinos of the same species. After the introduction of Patch 219, not all dinosaurs will have access to breeding, but most. about the possibility of your tamed dinosaurs to have offspring - you can understand by their indicator: "Enable Wandering to Mate". All you have to do is put two tamed dinosaurs in one place and let them roam freely ("Enable Wandering") - you can, just in case, close them in a confined space, for example, in a paddock. If you did everything right, beating hearts will appear above their heads, and the current mating information will be shown on a special indicator for the female, and information about their mating partner will also be shown for both dinosaurs. nine0006

    When the mating process is completed, the female dinosaur will lay an egg that is fertilized and ready for the birth of a new dinosaur. After that, the female dinosaur is not able to mate for a certain amount of time, this time will be shown on her indicator. At the same time, males can mate as much as they like, as often as they like, they have no restrictions.

    Incubation Period

    Fertilized Egg will not develop and hatch if it is in the inventory, it must be placed on the ground or in a selected designated area. Fertilized eggs laid in this way will not deteriorate, while its successful incubation will require maintaining a temperature climate that is characteristic and special for each type of dinosaur. If this temperature regime is not observed, the health of the fertilized egg will decrease, and when it reaches zero, the egg will collapse. You will see all this data if you look at this egg, as well as data about the parents of the expected offspring. nine0006

    Birth Period

    When properly incubated, the egg should hatch.

    Baby dinosaurs initially have a very low level of health and are quite vulnerable, therefore, in the first days after they are born, care and feed them, otherwise they will die. Gradually, as they grow older, their stats grow, they have HP. After birth, the babies do not belong to anyone, so you need to manually "Assign" them ("Imprint"), in order for them to be assigned to you. nine0006


    Baby dinosaur's base and initial stats will be randomized and based on the base stats of the dinosaur's parents (at the time they were tamed).

    Now the most important thing for true breeders!

    Since the baby dinosaur randomly adopts the characteristics and stats of its adult parents, it can get more "maximum" characteristics than its parents. For example, you have a Rex dad with a “natural maximum” amount of HP (all the experience gained during the taming process went into HP) and a Rex mom with a “natural maximum” stamina, when they are mated, they can have a cub with a natural maximum characteristics, HP and stamina. Thus, choosing ideal dinos for breeding each time, in the end you will be able to get a cub with maximum stats already at birth (to clarify that the chance of obtaining the maximum characteristics of parents in a cub is 70%). This is a chance to bring out such a dinosaur, which does not exist in nature and which will be legendary on the ARC island! nine0006

    However, you won't be able to see the dinosaur's characteristics before it's born.

    In addition, mating dinosaurs do not need to be owned by the same tribe in order to mate. They just need to be non-aggressive, tame, and close to each other. so "exit mating" and "alimentary dinosaur" will soon come into the lexicon of Preppers.

    Growth stages

    The growth process of small dinosaurs is displayed on special indicators. Dinosaurs will grow in real time. nine0006

    There are three growth stages for baby dinosaurs in ARK Survival Evolved: infancy up to 20%, adolescence up to 50%, and adolescence up to 100%. After these stages, reaching 100%, the baby becomes a full-fledged adult dinosaur. To grow a truly excellent dinosaur will require a lot of effort.

    ARK Survival Evolved Patch 242 introduced the ARK Survival Evolved Imprinting system, a baby care and courtesy system that allows you to raise a baby Dino with increased stats for its owner. nine0006

    This is where stops, we can only add that in the future the dinosaur breeding and breeding system will be multi-level, including random mutations and pedigrees, as well as other remarkable features that will open the ARK Survival Evolved game from one more side for which there are connoisseurs. Enjoy the game and successful breeding!
