Wyverns have a resemblance to its relative, the Dragon and appear to have few changes to their appearance making them smaller and different in body structure.
These creatures have different colors and features about them which can help distinguish the projectiles that they breathe out which differ from streams of fire, blasts of lightning, splashes of venom and bursts of frost.
While different by the way their bodies are built, Wyverns have two hind legs and their wings with claws attached make up its front, making its structure closer to other avian creatures.
It is impossible to domesticate a fully grown Wyvern as these are more likely to bite your head off rather than accept food from what it already considers food and instead stealing an egg and raising it from a baby Wyvern until it grows will gain you its loyalty.
Wyverns are considered to be one of the most terrifying creatures to encounter when flying as they can outfly almost any creature around and their bite is just as deadly as the elements that it breathes out.

How to Tame Wyvern?
Wyverns cannot be tamed and the only way for you to obtain one is to head to its nest and steal its egg which will grant you a baby of the same level if you hatch it and nurture it to grow into an adult.
How To get Wyvern Eggs?
In order to obtain a Fertilized Wyvern Egg, you will need to first go to the nesting area where lots of Wyverns may be seen flying.
Be sure to use a flyer that can fly fast or has goo health on it as the Wyverns are very aggressive and deadly which makes a Griffin a top choice for most survivors.
Head into the location where the Wyverns appear to originate and find the nests where eggs may be seen lying in them.
Land and dismount from your flyer and quickly grab the egg then get back on your flyer and get the hell out of there.
Wyverns will begin to chase after you and they will be very aggressive, attempting to kill you for taking the egg.
Quickly fly away from them and try to lose them in trees or bait them to other wild creatures and head back to hatch your future baby Wyvern.
This applies to obtaining the Fire Wyvern, Lightning Wyvern and Poison Wyvern Fertilized Eggs as they are usually all together in one nesting area while the rarer Ice Wyvern has its nest located in very cold areas.

Wyverns come in 4 different main variations and each has their own specific element which they themselves are unaffected by, meaning a Wyvern of a similar type cannot damage the same Wyvern with an Elemental Breath attack.
The Fire Wyverns are usually colored with fiery colors such as mixtures of red, orange and slightly yellow.
These variations breathe out fire in a wide radius in front of them, setting enemies on fire to take damage over time.
Lightning Wyverns come in lighter bluish colors and have a more pointed head which helps distinguish it from the other Wyverns.
The Lightning Wyvern gets its name from its projectile which is a straight beam of lightning which deals continuous damage and inflicts torpor.
The Poison Wyvern appears to be more reptilian than the other variants and has frills on the side of its neck, remaining within a color range of different shades of green.
The Poison Wyvern spits out a projectile that slowly travels forward until it impacts with an enemy or surface, creating a poisonous explosion that damages everything, including survivors on their tames.
The Ice Wyvern appears in whitish to purplish colors and is distinguished by what resembles a crown on its head.
Its Elemental Breath is a blast of ice which is similar to the Fire Wyvern’s animation yet instead of burning enemies, it slows them down greatly and deals damage to them.
Wyvern Eggs may be obtained in locations where there are many Wyverns flying around, mainly in their nesting areas.
Maps where Wyverns spawn:
- Scorched Earth (Fire, Lighting and Poison)

It definitely takes a lot of guts to obtain a Wyvern Egg to be hatched and most survivors end up dying even before getting to the egg which means you should be very ready before attempting to snatch one.
Wyverns can easily take out other tames due to their damage, speed and ability to cause certain status ailments to survivors and tames.
Only few creatures are capable of going head to head with Wyverns due to their mobility and deadly prowess but once you hatch one of your own and raise it, your enemies will surely think twice before flying in your direction.
