Whether you are just getting started on EliteArk or you are built up and need to fill your tek turrets - getting element quickly is important. On EliteArk there are many ways to get element and this post shares them all.
You can complete in-game quests to kill wild dinosaurs. To start with just killing a couple of each species will reward you with a small amount of element. But as you complete the quests they require you to kill more and more of each species. You can expect between 1 to 15 element per quest. This is the FASTEST method of getting element when you start. A little bit of time in the swamp or a cave killing wild dinos and your tribe should easily have enough element for a Replicator and Transmitter. To view what creatures count for quests you can type /quests in chat.
Your tribe can complete the boss fights on each map to receive element. The boss fights have been boosted on most maps to give much more element than default. For example, the Alpha Ragnarok Arena awards 1500 element rather than the default 90. Boss fights can be started from Obelisks, Supply Drops or the S+ Transmitter. The in-game shop has boss kits available for points or you can farm the tribute items yourself.
Another fast method of obtaining element is to trade for it with another tribe. The Discord has a #ark_trading channel with people advertising Element or you can post an advert there that you are buying it. People normally trade element for points or in-game items like blueprints and lines.
As you raid there is a good chance you will come into element. Every tek turret can contain shards you can craft back into element. The generators will have element. Raiding tek tribes is a very good way to refill your element stocks.
Lootboxes / VIP Boxes
The Lootboxes and VIP Boxes from <a href="https://arkloot.com/">ArkLoot.com</a> both can contain Element. If they have element it will be between 25 to 300 element. These boxes also can contain points, tames, blueprints and much more - element is just one of the many possibilities.
There are quite a few other methods for obtaining element on EliteArk. They're not as fast but you can do them if you prefer:
- Element Veins (Extinction only)
- Element Dust from Lampposts (Extinction only)
- Element Dust Gachas
- Aberration Charge Stations
Quick Tip: There is a mod that allows you to craft element into a version that can be transfered. This allows you to easily take Element with you between maps. Farm element on the map of your choice and take it home with you. Just never use the auto-crafter with the cross travel element engrams as it makes your element unusable.
That concludes this short guide on obtaining Element on EliteArk. Please leave a comment if you have another method you prefer or to share how your tribe does it.
