In this guide, you will come to know how to find the Element in ARK Extinction. You have to follow the step-by-step instructions to find it.
The first element that you encounter is element dust; you can find it in two different locations. First, if you harvest lamp posts throughout the city, it will provide you with a small amount of the element dust by crafting it with the pickaxe or hatchet, as shown in the image below.
The second place you need to encounter the element dust from harvesting is from enforcers. When you are in the enforcers, you have to use the pickaxe or hatchet, which will provide you with a small amount of element dust.
There are two craftable forms of the element in the game. The unstable animal shard will unlock at level 55, and the unstable element will unlock at level 58. Each of them is crafted with the element dust. So to make the unstable element shards, you need ten element dust. When you craft it, the unstable element shards will slowly be turned into stable element shards, as shown in the image below.
The unstable element takes a thousand element dust to produce it, it takes sixty seconds to craft and two minutes to spoil out back into a regular piece of the element. The reason for the spoil is to work as a time gate. You can also scrap the element and element shards back into dust, and to do this. You will need to go to the city terminal. If you scrap an element shard, it will scrap back into a whooping two-element as shown in the image below.
If you scrap a full piece of element back into dust, it will scrap into 200 pieces of element dust. If you want to get a lot of element dust, you have to find element nodes that spawn randomly in the Westlands. When you find it, you have to defend them from waves of corrupted dinosaurs, and when you protect them from five waves, then the element vein will be protected, as shown in the image below.
Now you have to harvest all of the nodes of the element, and also, it will provide you element dust, element shard, and element as shown in the image below.
