Attack Effects

Attack Type Effect Description
Alt Attack  Enflamed The target will be set on fire, 20% of their highest health will be burnt down more than 10 seconds.

The Firebreath-assault can deal 2000 damage and it can be used over 10 seconds. Melee damage state won’t have an effect on the flame damage, and for that reason, it won’t be developed by level-ups.

Wild Stats Level-up

Input the values of an untamed creature to check on which stats it is stressed. The green values on a creature at a higher level are extremely great to breed. For those creatures that you have already domesticated, you could take back the breeding stats by utilizing the tool called ARK Stats Extractor.

Remember, once being domesticated, the creature will obtain bonuses on several stats based on the taming successfulness. This will cause it to be very difficult to take back the levels on a domesticated one, therefore, this tool is only applied for the untamed ones, but it could be very impressed because of how perfectly the stats are given out.


The Dragon will vanish after 20-40 minutes once being domesticated, so, you must make a good use of it quickly.


Preferred Food

  • Raw Meat
  • Raw Prime Meat


Remember that these values are only for optimum instances, they always carry additional supplies.

Try using an external taming calculator to check out the required level-dependent count of resources.


  • Raw Prime Meat
  • Raw Meat
  • Hide
  • Keratin
  • Chitin


In SotF, the Dragon stays passive forever, and it won’t launch its assault to anything unless it is ridden by someone.

Although the Dragon is not able to swim, it still can walk and fly underwater.


This is the part showing how to battle against The Dragon



You need to keep a good distance away from the Dragon, or keep on moving. If you are riding on an Argentavis, you will be able to get closer to the its rear and try to go behind its tail, or stay at there. You can try to keep a distance away from its bite and flame. But, you need to stay watchful for its range, if you slightly stumble, you may lose your guard due to the range of The Dragon.


You can launch your attack to The Dragon using guns, a sword, strong tamed dinosaurs or even bring a tribe that has 5 to 10 players with you.


The dangers include the fire breathing and being killed in a single bite.


The behind of the dragon (Tail) is a weak spot because of how slow it turns, if it flies try to get on its back and hit it there.



The Dragon is known as the second biggest creature, just right after the Titanosaurus in the game. It’s kind of bigger than other big dinosaurs, like Brontosaurus, DodoRex or even Giganotosaurus.

The Dragon vanishes after 20 minutes once being domesticated.

The purple and orange color scheme of Dragon can be an allusion to the Spyro franchise.
