That’s why the Ark Gacha Claus is special!
Here you find him: The event creature moves around all maps except Aberration. You simply have to be lucky to encounter him somewhere. Once you’ve found him, you may have to be patient, because without Raptor Claus Gacha won’t lift a finger!
This is what he gives you: Gacha Claus, who is roaming the arks for some time with the Ark Winter Wonderland Update (2.44), can give you wonderful gifts in the form of Gacha Crystals! For this you have to feed him and, in the best case, keep him away from other dinosaurs or mammals – he doesn’t like company.
How to feed Gacha Claus & get his Crystals
1. Find Gacha Claus
That’s simple, as mentioned above, you can find Gacha Claus in Ark living anywhere except on the Aberration map. Here he stands out clearly because he doesn’t usually live there. You can also recognize him by his Christmas presentation. Trust me you will discover it.
2. Wait for Raptor Claus
To feed Gacha Claus, you have to put something into his inventory. If you try that, however, you will not be presented with the opportunity to put your items in. (You will find out what items I talk about in a moment.)
That’s because you have to wait for Raptor Claus to get on tour. He only appears between midnight and 2:00 a.m. (server time). Often there is also a big message with a coherent “Ho-Ho-Ho” sound effect.
3. Collect the gifts
Watch out for Raptor Claus and his reindeer sleigh in the sky! He’s dropping gifts that contain the items you need for Gacha Claus in order to get his crystals. Included in the gifts are:
- A weapon or armor piece
- Cryopot (rare)
- Building & Crafting Ingredients
The last two items are particularly important because Gacha Claus wants exactly these two things.
4. Feed Gacha Claus & wait for a little
Now find Gacha Claus again and open his inventory. Now put the coal and mistletoe in it. He will now eat them one by one, growing Gacha Crystals on his back. Most of the time you will get a primitive Gacha Crystal here, but in rare cases it will also drop ascended ones!
Ark Gacha Claus’ open gifts and be amazed
That’s what you get: In the current version of Ark, Gacha Claus drops a maximum of 10 crystals. After that, the giving of presents is over. Now you can open the crystals and get these items:
- Gift box
- Christmas hat
- Festive dino candy in different quality classes
- Other cosmetic content
