Ghost Coins and Voting Rewards tutorial
Ghost Coin is our official community token. GC can be spent on both voting rewards and trades between the players.
You can earn GC by voting for the tree servers listed on the forum main page.
Voting for different servers than the ones listed on the forum's main page will not give you coins.
For every vote you will receive 3GC, so you can earn 9GC daily - voting is possible every 24 hours.
Voting links are on the forum main page:
Make sure that your voting account and forum account are connected to the same Steam account.
The GC are paid automatically, usually it takes up to a few hours.
When they are added to your account, you can see the number of your GC in top right corner of the website and in your profile description.
After you've earned a certain amount of GC, you can purchase a voting reward. The reward list is linked below:
After you have gathered 100+ Ghost Coins, you can exchange them to the ingame currency. It's easy!
First craft a Reward Vault and place it on a wall. Here you will access your ingame account. It looks like this:
Then open a support ticket, name it "Exchange Ghost Coins - ARc Bars" and provide your ingame name, map you play on and the amount of GC you want to exchange. It will be added to your ingame account as soon as possible. The exchange rate is 1:1 (100GC to 100ARc Bars). Note that you can only exchange 100GC or more.
After the transfer is done, access the Reward Vault (press E) and click "Reward menu":
Here you can buy fancy stuff with your ARc Bars. There are a few categories to let you find your reward faster. You can choose an item or dino to buy, or get your ARc Bars to physical items. Click on the item's category, then choose an item from the list (make sure the number next to it is correct) and click "Purchase". It will appear in the vault's inventory.
If you purchase a dino, it will appear as a summon ticket.
If you purchase ARc Bars, the desired amount will be taken from your account and transfered to physical item. They will appear in the vault's inventory. You can use it to trade with other players (just like you use metal etc.) or as a payment in the Auction House. To add them back to your account, just consume them.
It's much more convenient to use ARc Bars than Ghost Coins - once exchanged, you can use them as you wish and buy voting rewards without switching to forum and waiting for delivery.
For details, please read: Big PVE Cluster Update: Ingame-Currency & Shop & Dino Preview
The Dino-Summon tickets have a spoil timer of 15mins. So use the ticket right after the purchase!
Before using the Dino Summon ticket, make sure that you have your Tribe tame limit free - otherwise you may lose the dinosaur.
Dino Summon tickets may not be traded in the Auction House (uploading to the Auction House will break the Dino Summon Ticket and the Dino cant be spawned).
Dinos/items lost through bugs/server crashes will not be replaced - these include the ARC BARS.
The maximum amount of ARK BARS per account/player is 10.000. All ARK BARS consumed beyond that limit will be lost.
Alternate way - eg. if there are issues with the rewards mod:
To receive the reward, please contact a teammember in game, create a support ticket or open a new thread in the Voting Rewards forum section.
When you choose the ticket/ thread option, please provide us the following information:
- player name
- tribe name
- server on which you want to have the reward delivered
- base coords - with this info we can deliver the reward even when you are offline, so it's recommended to provide it; if you prepare a storage for the reward - please take a screenshot of it while holding a GPS in your hand so an admin can find it faster
- reward of your choice
The Ghost Coins will be withdrawn from your account by a teammember.
