This is my favorite, and perhaps the easiest way to harvest Black Pearls in Ark Survival Evolved. Use a frog (Beelzebufo) to attack and harvest Eurypterids from the bottom of the ocean. The Eurypterids are normally found in some of the deepest areas of water, but on the Ragnarok Map you can find them in the shallow waters of Viking Bay around the shipwreck. On that map I have built a raft to act as a base for my beelzebufo, and I can swim down eat some eurypterids and quickly return to the surface to escape the terrifying ocean creatures, and store any black pearls that I have collected. The pearls are very heavy, so it is great to place them in a storage chest, and then dive back down to get some more black pearls. While the raft strategy works great on Ragnarok, it will also work on other maps where you can reliably find eurypterids.
