Ark Lost Island is all about gathering resources for crafting and upgrades in a bid to survive the harsh conditions on the island. The higher the tier is, the rarer the materials required for any upgrades.

One of the most valuable resources for any player of Ark is oil. It can be gathered in numerous ways: by mining ocean oil, underwater cave oil, and mining the oil veins on the surface.

The Lost Island is the latest map made available to users. It is a non-canonical map community-made and is free to download. The map has added new biomes and challenges with over 150 sq kilometers and three new creatures.
