Ark Survial Evolved Guide: How To Cure Swamp Fever And Imprint

Maximize and optimize your ARK character.

Posted By | On 05th, Sep. 2017

ARK: Survival Evolved is a survival game, which means just about everything in the world is out to kill you- including the environment and your own body, if it gets the chance. You can get disease, and that disease can be debilitating and even kill you.

On the flip side, you get to tame dinosaurs (which often involves a step called ‘imprinting’), which, you know- you win some, you lose some. In this guide, we talk about both of these steps.

CURING SWAMP FEVER

You can catch this disease because of a Diseased Leech, and requires a Lesser Antidote to be cured. You can craft a Lesser Antidote with the following ingredients:

  • Rare Flowers x 10
  • Rare Mushrooms x 10
  • Leech Blood OR Whooly Rhino Horl OR Deathworm Horn x 3
  • Pain Reliever x 1

IMPRINTING

Imprinting is a simple process for dinosaurs  where you can get them an up to 97% stats boost before they reach maturity- effectively making them capable of going toe to toe with beasts double their level.

Every three to four hours during a dinosaur’s maturation process, once the timer runs out, you will get a prompt- performing these simple actions will help you ‘imprint’.

  1. Wants a random kibble: feed the dinosaur whatever it seems to want
  2. Wants a cuddle: cuddle the dinosaur
  3. Wants to walk with player: walk back and forth with the dinosaur

The full imprinting process can take 27-34 hours- that is a lot of dedication. But it is necessary for the boost we were talking about.
