What's crazy is that apparently according to ark logic I can build a steel ballista turret AND a high tech heat dispersing ghilly suit 10 levels before I learn how to craft a leather saddle for one of these things? lol up vote this so somebody important fixes that. That's horrible lol
NEVER call it speedy! I tamed one and called it speedy, then logged off. When I came back it was gone. I tamed another (called it speedy 2) and went to the red woods, when I came back and it had disappeared... AGAIN!
I had one of these and it had been set on passive flee for god knows why and my friend was knocked off of it by a raptor and It flew away. We had it for five minutes. Moral of the story is don’t set it to passive flee.
When your out of Stamina while airborn, don't spam the roll Button! My Bird bugged, Threw me Off an warped away with lightningh Speed...Yeah eh bugged out of The map...think it got patched.
And when you land and jump Off your Bird quickly...turn around. Often Flyers will keep walking in that direction, they're facing. Lost birds like that. Or they Flyer away random, like they don't give a fuck that you spent 2 hours or more taming them....RIP stupid Qutzal that flew off, Killed all Dinos on his platform and came back 1 week later...
So be careful!
