ARK: Survival Evolved Patch 252.8 & 252.82


Requires Server Update.


  • Veg cakes should no longer be auto-consumed for Food by any dino except Achatina
  • Veg cakes WILL be auto-consumed by any Dino for Health if their HP is below 85% (yes, even Carnivores, though to minimal benefit on them). The Dino will consume one Veg cake every 10 seconds until it has above 85% Health again.
  • Chitin / Keratin can be placed in Feeding Troughs
  • Sauropod Tamed Health gain (leveled-up portion) reduced by 30%
  • Doedicurus and Carbonemys no longer gain Herbivore-healing from Veg Cakes
  • Veg Cake max healing amount limited to 3000 HP over 10 seconds (otherwise 15% of max HP), in addition to instant +500 (edited)
  • Herbivore Explosion Damage multiplier changed to 40% rather than 55%

Fixes & Improvements

  • You can no longer erroneously shimmy up sheer landscapes on dinos.
  • Fixed a client-side chat crash.


  • Veggie Cakes now have 10% healing of Herbis between 500 and 2500 HP over a 30 second duration, with 50% spoiling lifetime, and no longer are effective on Titanosaurus. Requires Server Update.
  • Likely fix for client-side Health Meter getting stuck at zero.
