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!
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!
These guys are great for metal collection. Movement speed 757% is enough to get you from herbivore island to the volcano on the island in about 30secs to a minute, and 9000 weight is about enough to bring back the metal u need for an industrial grinder with the same speed. IK it’s kinda hard to lvl it that much without Ascendant creatures tho XD. Anyway, Quetzals are good for collecting tonnes of the heavier materials even without lvling them into oblivion. I used mine to bring back 5000 metal. Patience is key tho, coz these things are SLOW AS. Took me half an hour to bring it back to my base 😂.
You can use it to start a profitable ARK Airlines business, or parties, or for raiding if you don’t think past necessity, but instead of landing the quetzal you tell the passengers to grab a parachute and that they’ve reached their destination.😂
They usually are not used for fighting unless they have a platform saddle but they are great at fighting even without one. They deal more damage per hit than an argy, and they have incredible knock back, it can even deal a tiny amount of knock back to a Rex if it is on flat ground. They also have a high amount of health and stamina.
