ARK Genesis Resource Map Guide

An essential element of the Ark: Genesis gameplay is the effective location and collection of the various resources. We understand that finding resources can be a hefty task and quite tiresome, so we have compiled about sufficient resource locations in our this Ark: Genesis Resource Map.

Resources are scattered in chunks and bits all over the map in different biomes.

Nodes are at these coordinates right next to a glitch. This is also a cave down below.

Location #10: 31°, 76°
