How to craft silica and black pearls in ARK Extinction

When it comes to Silica and Black Pearls, the best technique you can follow is to craft them using your Gachas. If you don’t have Gachas, you can go to the Forest biome and tame some from there.

Always try to have pairs of Gachas. To craft Silica and Black Pearls using Gachas, go to the radial Wheel and select production. A complete list of resources Gacha can craft will appear in front of you.

From here, you can select Silica and Black Pearls. After that, move food into its inventory, and it will start producing the Pearls or any other resource you choose.

Taking out the corrupted creature in Ark Extinction can also get you some of these resources, but it is not an efficient way.

It is not guaranteed that you will find some Silica and Black Pearls every time you take out a corrupted creature. We recommend using Gachas for crafting these resources, but you can also try corrupted creatures.
