Me and my tribe progressed roughly like this: start in fertile lake, tame good ravagers and a paracer and some other tames, we moved to the entrance of the northeast surface in the green biome (lots of metal and keratin), tamed a crab and moved down to the blue biome, got rock drakes and now we use the drakes to get all the ascendant loot from the surface.
