Offline Raid Protection on EliteArk
Raid protections are in-game mechanisms to make it harder for a tribe to be raided while playing on EliteArk. The goal is to encourage online PVP/raiding between tribes and allow new players to build up without fear of being raided.
There are two types of Raid Protection:
- Newbie Protection
- Offline Raid Protection
Both types of raid protection rely on you placing a MAGA ORP structure. This can be crafted in your inventory for 1 thatch. This should be placed centrally in your base. This structure is only as strong as what it is placed on so it is better to place it on the terrain directly rather than a structure.
On EliteArk the Offline Raid Protection is a progressive system based on the time since your last tribe member logged off the map.
While one or more of your tribe is online everything can be damaged normally and turrets do their normal damage.
After your tribe members have all logged off that map your turret damage and structure's damage resistance will slowly increase. This is a gradual process and increases to a maximum of 400% turret damage and 100% structure resistance.
After 8 hours offline ORP provides full immunity for all structures/tames within range of your MAGA ORP structure. During this time your turrets can still be soaked.
After 48 hours a plugin will automatically decay all structures and tames.
Common Issues to be aware of:
- You cannot place your ORP close to another tribe's ORP. Please place your ORP early into building your base to be sure you can benefit from Offline Raid Protection in that location.
- Pickup and replace your ORP when your tribe members change and if you are granted PVE. In rare cases ORP benefits will not take effect if you have changed members since placing it. Once you pickup and replace the ORP it will update with just your current tribe members.
- If you are raiding someone and their structures are taking no damage it is likely they are under PVE and cannot be raided yet.
Offline Raid Protection is one of the many plugins that we run on the EliteArk Unofficial Ark Survival Evolved Servers to encourage online PVP. You might also be interested in how Newbie Protection and Raid Warnings function on EliteArk.
