It can get a bit tricky finding resources on the new Ark: Survival Evolved Valguero map. But worry not! Our Ark Valguero Resources Locations Guide will walk you through locations of all resources and collectibles in the new Ark: Survival Evolved map.
Ark Valguero Resources Locations
This is one of the easiest to harvest resources and you can find it in several locations as follows:
- At 38.5/34.9 is the starter area on the river coast where you will find a number of dolphins outside the water. They will spawn there frequently and you can use a chainsaw and get the polymer.
- At 18.7/89.1 in the snow biome on the top right corner of the map, are penguins that spawn there on the ice plates all over the snow biome.
- At 08.7/79.2, in the Wyvern Scar where you can find some additional polymer.
You can also get it from the crabs in the aberration area.
Pearls are found on floors of water bodies. They are inside of seashells that sit on the bottom of lakes and rivers. These shells look like dead fish lying on the floor and are white in color.
At 42.6/53.5, the bottom of the river is abundant with pearls that are lying on the floor waiting to be collected. Follow the trail of pearls as soon as you find one and you will find lots more afterward.
Look for tube-shaped plants in clusters, you will find some pearls nearby.
This is probably one of the most useful resources in Ark: Survival Evolved as it is the main ingredient for building. It is usually found on water bodies and is a grey liquid-ish substance.
You can easily find cementing paste all over the beaver dams. There are a lot of small and big beaver dams scattered across the map along the river coast. Head to any one of them and you will find cementing paste in grey puddles that spawns there.
At 39.2/16.4, is a less popular but easy to utilize cementing paste spawn location. Here you will find beaver dams all across the water channel and cementing paste spawning there in abundance.
The oil will be found in oil pumps and drills where it is being dug out of the ground. Adversely, you can find it on coasts and riversides and inside the lake where it seeps out of the ground.
At 17.9/88.7, in the snow biome where you came for polymer earlier is the location for oil. Here you can find oil on the coast and underwater nearby.
Crystals and Obsidian
Crystals appear in flower-like clusters protruding from the ground while Obsidian is a black solid that is engraved sort of into the ground and you will usually find it at the slope and foot of cliffs and mountains.
At 14.3/81.9, in the snow biome, you will find a cliff at this location, atop which you will find crystal scattered all around. Take your time to get across it and on this slope and its feet, you will find large areas of obsidian lying all over in rock form.
At 81.0/75.1, in the White Cliff area, there are loads of crystals clustered there and obsidian scattered all the way down.
Similarly, in the Red Woods, you will find plenty of crystal and obsidian on a cliff and elevated areas.
Sulfur is black coal-like solid, but not actually solid. You will find it in powder form with sulfur dust in the air around the area. You will most probably find it near volcanoes and in Wyvern locations.
At 08.1/77.1, inside the Wyvern Scar, there is loads of Sulfur littered all around the area just for you to collect.
At 78.1/90.0, is a canyon sort of area, surrounded with steep hills all of whom are covered in salt.
Cactus plants come is small and large sizes. The small ones are almost spherical with flowers on top and the large ones are rods-like erect structures branching out on top.
To find Cactus, you’re going to have to scavenge the White Cliff area or maybe fly over it. What you are going to be looking for are the large cacti, beneath which you may also find small ones.
The thing about White Cliff area is that you can find enough cactus, and even if you still want more, just search a little bit more.
Metals and Gems
Metals are basically the resource that are found in immense abundance and on the map everywhere you go. Thus, there is no specific location for finding metals.
However, at 38.9/57.6 there is an entrance to a cave under a cliff just beside the lake. Enter it and follow the passageway to keep on going under. Once you reach 29.3/62.2, there will be an opening inside the ground.
There you will find different types of gems and metals. The gems will be brightly colored and shining. While the metals are inside of black polished rocks that will be all over the place.
At the Eastern side of the map on 59.5/71.5 coordinates, you will find the first location of the Giant Beaver Dams. Follow along the river towards the Green Obelisk to find more Beaver Dams.
The second location to find them is on the western side of the map at 40.7/14.3 along with the river system. Roam around the area to find the Beaver Dams.
Other resources such as Fiber, Flint, Wood, Fat, and Stone are scattered throughout the map.
- Flint and stones can be harvested as you tread through the map. Just keep looking for stones that might be of use and in them, you will find Flints as well.
- Wood is one of the most abundant resources in the game. You can harvest it by cutting trees. Similarly, Fiber can be harvested by picking plants with hands.
- Fungal woods are found in abundance throughout the passageway of the underground cave that is located 38.9/57.6
