I feel extremely lucky to have a million quetzal spawnpoints near my base, they are great for transportation, taming and just about everything. They are a must have tame if you can afford the tranks, food, and search time.
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!
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.😂
I played on a server and my tribe had a Quetz, so we decided to have some fun by opening a skydiving business. We slapped some chairs on the platform and a box full of parachutes, then one person would drive, the others would sit in chairs, and everybody would take a parachute. Then we’d fly up super high, have the quetz on follow, and all jump off. It’s a lot of fun, try it
