Story Time (I don’t know if this is the right category but watch ever)
Tapejaras are hard to find, hard to tame and hard to protect while taming, I discovered that in the hard way.
During my entire time playing Ark(mobile) I only seen 3 Tapejaras , I tried taming all of them.
The first one escaped because I ran out of food and narcotics.
The second one I tamed, and then he got killed by a Spino seconds later.
Due to luck and previous experience I managed to tame the third one , I named him Jack, and he still alive and I hope it keep on going like that .
Sooo, I hope this was useful, or at least entertaining, so what are you waiting? Go tame one! They really nice if they survive the tame they can survive almost everything I guess
Always spawn on the Island near Green Ob, and near to Red Ob. Use bola, and full gillie suit to approach. Make sure you are crouching when you approach one. I've had Taps on official and unofficial. Great multi purpose tame for tribes. Not so good for solo players unless you get the tek engram for the saddle
Fly really high in the air and then if you have a tribemate and a flyer grapple hook to the flyer and then bola it just make sure you shoot it at least once while its in the air so just in case the bola breaks you dont need to shoot it that much so it knocks also level speed weight and health for a nice speedy flyer with good weight and if you get attacked you wont die unless its like turrets if your on a pvp server or pvx and in the pvp area
On the island map they are uncommon spawns in many places although the best place to find them is in the south east jungle and obelisk area. They can be used to tame solo tame a quetzal. Kill a few ducks to get some ghille (2-3 pieces will do) then shoot it in the head and afterwards just hit it with a few body shot and it’s will ko. Never go to close on your mount when you find one. Flying mount reccomended. if it is in the air follow it from far away and wait patiently for it to come down. If it only ascends then don’t bother and if it’s on the ground land a little far away then equip ghille and shoot. I hope this helped!
Well after *years of searching and watching one die when i knocked it out due to the vicious man eating comopys* finally got one back to base its a lvl 6 but does the job. What i used is a lvl 64 bear with 260 something speed and 800 stamina. Master longneck rifle and chased it,soothing balm is handy.
Glad this one didn't die had 2 Raptors get near low level less then 10 and a alpha raptor in the distance i would have died
