This is an absolutely amazing bird.What i use this Quetzal for is metal runs.My tribe in pvp servers will always want to get one of these guys early on.If u have an ankylosaurs,you pick it up and have one person get on the anky.Then you get the anky to hit metal nodes.
Quetzals, one of the best dinos. Quetzals can easily be tamed with a buddy, all you need is a flying dino that can pick up people or has a multi-seat saddle. Load up with the appropriate tranq arrows, narcotics, food and set off across the map to find one. Low levels are brilliant for beginners as they can serve as brilliant carriers due to their high base weight stat. Higher levels however mainly are used as "Battle Quetzals", alongside the high stats it will receive from being tamed, pumping health and melee damage is the way to go. With that being said you'll be able to tank base defences such as PSX and Auto Turrets, aswell as kill dangerous dinos with ease. Maybe either of those don't tickle your fancy, then hey, make a "Party Quetzal"! Strap on some chairs, tables, food and lots more onto the Quetzal's Platform Saddle and hover in the air as you dance to Darude Sandstorm being blasted through someone's mic in game chat. If you can get a quetzal, do consider as they are brilliant!
When you tame your first quetzal, you should make it into a quetz trapper... if you are wanting more... if you don't know what a quetz trap is, go to YouTube! If you can tame a low level one to start! Being able to tame as many quetzals as you want with the trap, is RIDICULOUS!
Ever since the flyer nerf, they don't regain stamina if you dismount and stand on the platform saddle. You can, however, use a grapple hook if you really need to or you're raiding. Just grapple to it until full stam and you're good
Best way to get metal is have 3 people with to the metal run have a chair on the foundation for the quetz when u got like 6k raw metal knock out the player give it the metal u got drag him to the chair and make him sit it doesnt effect the quetz weight
