Don't put points into its movement speed if you want to glide faster. It glides as fast you run, so putting points into your movement speed will increase how fast it will glide. Hope this saves you from wasting levels like me : )
Alright, so basically I found one of these in the wild and REALLY wanted one. But with all the fun things in the Redwoods willing to take out anything that looks at them... Well you get the idea. But when I went to a dungeon and saw a Eerie one I wanted it SO bad. So I killed that one took its creature implant, revived it at one of the obelisks and tamed that glory bird up. Now I have a light up parachute!
They are very fast and will only eat chitin. They run away when they see you or you tranq them. Breeding takes chitin too so have lots of chitin. They hide in trees and I have only seen females so Esther males are rare or I’m very bad at finding them
Oh archaeopteryx, you little chicken on steroids. This little guys is just a whole load of fun. They can carry you over vast distances, but also double as a, hey you seem to be falling, lemme help you out. However, getting down can be a bit of a problem. Otherwise... WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO OH YEAH IM RIDING THE SKY USING THE POWER OF A LITTLE CHICKEN THING
In mobile version they don't use stamina while gliding and can glide the player regardless of his weight for example my archaeopteryx has 33kg weight while I had 300kg iron on me , glided just fine from redwood hill to all the way to herbivore island(my base) without any issue... Well there was a problem thou that archaeopteryx would not land as it never ran out of stamina so I had to whistle my Tapejara and get on it to land. This is possibly a bug so use it while u can ;) happy infinite gliding.
P.S. I was not in godmode or infinite stats.
On mobile next to impossible to tame the normal way, I just tamed one by grabbing it from the top of a tree and bringing it very far away from redwoods, then tranq it then tame it. Lots of work, but I love them so it’s worth it.
