The Featherlight is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved's Aberration expansion.

Basic Info[]


This section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena Walker, the author of the dossiers, has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creature.



Microluminis alectryon








A floating beacon of light often found in the deepest pits of these caverns, Microluminis alectryon's appearance can seem almost heavenly. Its colorful plumage doesn't hurt either. Even without the charged light it emits, it would give any modern bird on Earth a run for its money in terms of pure spectacle. Although its feathery eyebrows might give one of the impression that it is related to owls, it is not a bird of prey. It is entirely docile, and shows no aggression towards survivors or other creatures.


Microluminis alectryon's ability to fly and the ease with which it perches upon a survivor's shoulder has made it a favored pet among many. Some consider it the most refined of its glowing brethren, but I think they just want to look like a pirate. Not that I blame them...

~ Helena


A passive creature. Flies away when attacked.


The Featherlight bears resembalance to a falcon or a pheasant and is a small bird-like creature with dragonfly-like, glowing flight feathers on its head, wings, and tail as well as smaller insulatory feathers. There is a prominent v-shaped head crest diverging at the upper jaw and extending behind the head, adorned with glowing feathers as well as having a crest on the forehead. (Note: Region 3 IS actually used for forehead light)

Color Scheme and Regions[]

This section displays the Featherlight's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Featherlight. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Featherlight will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

This information can be used to alter the Featherlight's regions by entering in the cheat console. For instance, would color the Featherlight's "main body" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding stats with an external tool.[1]


The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.



Not a threat by itself. Like all passive creatures, lack of awareness is your biggest threat.


Any hunting strategy is effective, especially long ranged weapons.


If you want the safest of safe, use ranged weapons as to not attract anything to your location, however this is almost always a waste of resources. You really shouldn't be killing these unless you are desperate for a quick meal or exp.


Like other Charge light-giving dino, Featherlight does not fight back when hurt, and only flies off. However, its charge light might attract other predators such as Raptor and  Ravager towards itself and thus possibly creating a situation of dangerous predators to be drawn closer than optimal.


It is passive, and won't attack you.


The Featherlight is unable to be tamed through the standard tranquilize-and-feed methods, and must be tamed non-violently.

To feed it, place preferred food on the last slot of your hotbar, then when approached press use (default , Y, Triangle) to feed it. You cannot feed them all the food required for taming at one time, you must wait every couple of minutes until it is hungry again to feed it more until its taming meter is filled.

Taming Strategy: Since they spawn in dangerous areas, where either you or the Featherlight could be killed, and because they have a tendency to fly away, it is best to box them in. When the Featherlight lands, place a stone foundation on it and quickly surround it with walls and a ceiling. Then replace one of the walls with a door and tame it in the stone hut. This will protect you and the tame from the creatures outside and will prevent it from flying away during the tame. If you're having trouble securing the Featherlight inside your box you can use a grapple hook on it while it is landed (you cannot grapple a flying Featherlight). This will not damage the creature and will allow you to "reel it in". This allows you to either simply tame it while attached to the grapple, or allows you extra time to build your box before it flies away again.

An even easier method would be to bring a wooden cage and honey. Wait till the featherlight lands, then drop the honey about 10 feet away from it. As it walks towards the honey, put the cage over the honey and open the door. Close the door when the featherlight enters. There's no need to open the door to feed it-it can be fed through the bars of the cage. Don't try to put the cage directly over the featherlight, it will not work (without disabled collision).

Another alternative is to wait for the Featherlight to land, then put the wooden cage on top of it to easily trap it.

Not listed but a taming method that works as well is to place a tent on top of the Featherlight as it lands, and feed it will it and you are in the tent together.

Charge Lantern: Another Method would be to use a Charge Lantern to forcefully ground the featherlight. The stun from the Charge Lantern forces fliers to land, allowing you to get close. As it does no damage, this method won't hurt Taming Efficiency and it wont chase the featherlight away. Be wary of other Dangers however. You cannot shoot a grounded Featherlight, so only fire when it takes flight.

Note that the values are for optimal cases, always bring extra supplies!
For a level-dependent count of resources needed, try an external taming calculator.

Ark: Survival Evolved – Aberration | How To Find And Tame Featherlight

Ark: Survival Evolved, developed by Studio  Wildcard, is an action-adventure survival video game. Players are tossed into an island that is filled with all sorts of hazards such as other human players to free roaming dinosaurs.

The overall goal is simple, yet a difficult one within this game world, as players are tasked with surviving in the hostile environment while completing challenges and taming the free roaming beasts.During the journey, players will scavenge resources, craft weapons, fight off the various hazards and build a base. Recently, the video game received its latest DLC known as Aberration.

Within Aberration players will find themselves on a damaged ARK which results in a slew of new hazards, environments, and of course, creatures to tame. Likewise, developers have introduced new items to craft along with challenges to master.

In this particular guide, we’re going to showcase just how to locate and tame a Featherlight. Furthermore, we’ve included some noteworthy info for the creature down below.

  • Name: Featherlight
  • Species: Microluminis Alectryon
  • Diet: Herbivore
  • Temperament: Passive




The Featherlight can be found within either The Spine or the Lost Roads.

How To Tame

Taming the Featherlight is pretty standard, but it does come with some of its own difficulties. For starters, the Featherlight can fly away likewise, you may find that the creature is located in a rather hostile environment. Because of this, not only are you in danger of being killed but so is the Featherlight you’re trying to tame.

As a result, players should try to create a surrounding for it and trap the creature inside. If you manage to create wall around it along with a door, you can easily feed the Featherlight to tame it. Furthermore, with this structure securing the animal, you’ll keep it away from any other hostile dangers around the area.

Of course, there are other means of securing creatures, so if you prefer, go with your own methods such as grappling the Featherlight.

Ark Featherlight

The Microluminous Alectryon is a small herbivore from an unknown time period with a passive temperament.

These beautiful bird-like creatures can be seen flying around, minding their own business and shining brightly as they explore areas.

Featherlight will not attack its aggressors and will instead attempt to fly away the slightest chance it gets.

A human can freely approach these beautiful creatures and tame them easily by feeding them food which they will accept calmly.

Although the Featherlight is incapable of dealing a lot of damage, it does provide protection from certain creatures like the Nameless and Reapers which tribes utilize when traveling.


Dossier Summary

Many survivors consider the Featherlight to be one of the most beautiful creatures they have seen due to the beautiful light that it gives off.

Some would consider this creature to be related to a species of owls but they would be mistaken as this creature is a herbivore and a very docile one as a matter of fact.

Its sheer beauty and ability to illuminate places around its owner have made it a favorite pet for those who go exploring into dark areas.

2) Detect Enemies/Max Level Creatures

In the Presence of higher level creatures and enemies that can be a threat, the Featherlight will alert its master.

This can be shown by an icon on the survivors HUD which glows yellow for max level creatures and red for enemies.

Featherlight Spawn Location:

The following are spawn maps where the Featherlight can be found



A base illuminated by a Featherlight is quite the sight to see and pretty much better than nothing which makes it a good starting pet for new survivors.

Featherlights share the same role with other charge light creatures and can help against the threats that lurk within Aberration.

They may not be fighters or have the survival of most creatures but these beautiful birds can come in handy when Reapers or Nameless are on your tail and can give you and your other tames a fighting chance against them.
