Oil é um recurso de ARK: Survival Evolved. Pode ser adquirido por meio da colheita com uma Pickaxe de pedras escuras perto manchas de óleo no oceano.Ele também pode ser obtido por matar Trilobites bem como água acima depósitos de petróleo encontrados e em torno Whitesky Peak. Outra forma de adquirir petróleo é o Dung Beetle, que produz petróleo e Fertilizer se Feces são colocados em seu inventário.
Oil is also needed to craft the following items:
- Industrial Grill
- Industrial Cooker
- Industrial Forge
- Silencer Attachment
- Spray Painter
- Tripwire Alarm Trap
- Homing Underwater Mine
Oil can be mined with either a Stone Pick or a Metal Pick. The Stone Pick yields 0-1 oil per oil node, while the Metal Pick yields 0-10 oil per oil node. Besides using tools it is also possible to use a Ankylosaurus to mine oil very effectively. Sem resultados
There are 3 main environments where oil nodes spawn: the ocean, Underwater caves and along the beach of the Snow Biome.
Ocean oil mining
Oil nodes can be found all around the map in the oceans. Oil nodes in the ocean are easy to spot as they release a dark stream of oil which floats upwards.
To effectively mine oil nodes in the ocean it's a good idea to tame a underwater dinosaur, such as a powerful Megalodon, or a fast and nimble Ichthy.
While relatively rare, large clusters of oil nodes can also be found in various ocean floor locations. One such cluster can be found at 10.2 latitude and 25.5 longitude.
Underwater cave oil mining
The highest density of oil nodes can be found in underwater caves, it's possible to get 100's of oil from just 1 underwater cave. To get to the underwater caves it's recommendable to use both a underwater dinosaur and some way to hold your breath for extended periods underwater, such as Lazarus Chowder or a SCUBA Tank.
Snow Biome beach mining
If you don't feel confident underwater, it is possible to gather oil above ground. However these above ground oil nodes all spawn in the treacherous Snow Biome and on various icebergs.
A good strategy to gather these oil nodes effectively as a 2 man team, is to use a Quetzal and a Ankylosaurus. Simply pick up the Ankylosaurus (with your teammate on it), and fly past all the oil nodes, letting the Ankylosaurus mine them on the fly. The weight stat of the Ankylosaurus doesn't matter as all is carried by the quetzal.
