Explorer Notes are collectible items scattered across the Ark Survival Evolved map. Prior to the launch of Genesis Part 1 dlc, developers released these explorer notes i.e. Genesis Chronicles which players can collect for rewards. This guide will give you info about all the ARK Genesis Genesis Chronicles Locations.
These Genesis Chronicles can be in the form of Dino Dossier or a piece of narrative from actual survivors intended to tell the story behind the Ark.
ARK Genesis Genesis Chronicles Locations
Explorer Notes or Genesis Chronicles can be found on The Island, Scorched Earth, Aberration and Extinction. Collecting an Explorer Note gives you a 100 XP and 2x XP collection for the next 10 minutes.
The double XP effect also extends to the creature that you are riding when you collect the note, giving a double effect both for you and your creature.
Whenever a note has been discovered, HLN-A will radiate with a pulse of light and start to talk. Listed below are all the HLN-A discoveries sorted in the respective biomes they are found in along with their coordinates.
