Engrams are crucial for learning new recipes in Ark: Survival Ascended. Like in many other survival games where you are required to learn recipes/blueprints before you get to craft them, Engrams play the same role in Ark: Survival Ascended. So, if you are trying to get your character some clothes or the starting tools, you must learn Engrams.
In this guide, we’ll go over how to learn Engrams in Ark: Survival Ascended.
How to Get Engrams in Ark: Survival Ascended
Engram’s mechanic is the same as the previous title of the series, tied to the leveling of your character in Ark: Survival Ascended. To learn the Engrams in Ark: Survival Ascended, you need to level up your character continuously to get Engram Points unlocking a new level of Engram including various recipes.
There are several levels of Engram and each of them requires certain Engram Points. By reaching the specified amount required for the next level of Engram, you will unlock the recipes available in that level of Engram. Each recipe in the unlocked Engram Level will require a certain number of Engram Points to learn its recipe. Once you have enough Engram Points to learn a certain recipe from the Engram Level, you need to select the recipe and then select the ‘Learn’ option at the bottom of the screen to unlock the recipe in the Crafting Tab from where you will be able to craft it.
You can learn Engrams automatically every time you level up your character but it is only possible if the server has enabled the option for learning Engram on each level-up. If the server has the settings of the base game, you might have to level up your character 2-3 times to learn a new Engram which greatly slows down the progression.
If you are playing solo and have hosted a server of your own, you can enable the settings for learning Engram automatically to unlock crafting recipes more quickly to speed up the overall progression.
