I was looking for a Tapejara and I have been for the past five days and I came across one. Then all the sudden I look to my right and I see a Alpha Carno charging at me. R.I.P my poor Pterodactyl whom I had just tamed that day. Never got the Tapejara any tips for my terrible luck?
I had been searching for this guy for a whole week. Finally came across one. Bola, Tranq, unconscious. My last Bola finally worked and I put some spiked walls around this dude bc I was NOT about to loose him. I got bored whilst waited and killed a few raptors for more meat and tamed a pachy. Then flew on my pteranodon to look for a stego for prime meat. Saw one pretty close to my tapejara. Then I saw 3 allos….. went back to my tapejara ready to fight and they came at me. I shot them and killed all 3…but my tapejara didn’t make it. 1 up=1 prayer for my tapejara:(
I tried to bola one and missed and it started flying away when it saw me so I got on my pterodactyl and started chasing after it, once I got close I ate a rare flower then landed and knocked it out. While I was waiting I decided to make a house and while gathering materials I got encumbered and I heard something getting attacked. A dilo was attacking my tapajeria and killed it before I could get there. : (
I found a max level tapajara across the map from where my base was, so I spent 45 minutes just flying after it and scaring it towards my base. I finally got it there with rare flowers and right before I bola it, the only Dilo within a mile spat on it and it flew away and I still haven't found it to this day :(
“Is it a good idea for her to be going out alone?” Samuel asked her. Aurora rolled her eyes.
“She’ll be fine, but if you insist,” Aurora turned to Neddy, “You. Half-naked guy. You go with her.”
“O-Okay,” Neddy replied, getting up from the ground and scuttling away.
With the two gone, it was just Samuel, Aurora, and the dodo bird left. Samuel looked at Aurora, who had an authoritative and stern look on her face. Her face was covered with even more grime and dirt than he would’ve thought. Aurora looked at Samuel and glared.
“What do you want? What’s with that look on your face?” she asked.
“Nothing,” Samuel replied, looking away. Samuel remembered he used to go about his life, doing things as he was told, and not having a care in the world. But then that day… He should have seen the signs.
“That’s why, I couldn’t let anything pass by my sight,” Samuel thought, “Get every detail, little and small. Put the pieces together. I won’t let another situation like that happen again.”
Samuel turned to Aurora and asked her a question.
“Why do you act so bossy?” Samuel asked, “Is it because that gem in your wrist lets you chart the place we’re in with the stars, or because you were the valedictorian?”
Aurora closed her eyes and grumbled.
“Because no one else stepped up to the job, that’s why. And I’m surprised you figured it out,” Aurora stated, “What the gems in our wrists do.”
Samuel ignored Aurora and continued.
“Well you don’t have to be so mean. A little kindness won’t hurt you,” Samuel said, as he rubbed his smooth, empty left wrist. The dodo squawked in agreement, resting its head on Samuel’s leg complacently. Aurora looked at the dodo and then back at Samuel with a scowl.
Samuel, Neddy, Aurora, Ruby, and the dodo bird. The five of them were sitting on the cliff’s edge and looking out at the lands below them. They had traveled as far and quickly away from the site where the raptors tried to attack Samuel and Neddy, so now they were at rest. Samuel took a look at his surroundings on the way to this site. The plains of the hill had transformed into a forest of giant, towering trees that were as large as buildings. Along the way nothing tried to attack them, luckily, except for those weird venom spitter creatures. But fortunately for Samuel with Aurora and Ruby’s weapons they were nothing more than pests.
“Making allies was a good idea,” Samuel thought, his legs crossed and his hand brushing and petting the feathers of the dodo. Below the cliff’s edge was a treacherous-looking swamp. The water was murky and filled with algae, and the trees covered everything beneath it, stopping Samuel from seeing any further. Samuel could smell the swamp’s stench from where he was sitting.
“Night’s falling,” Aurora noted as she looked up at the stars, “Let’s set up camp now.”
“Huh? Why?” Neddy asked dumbfounded, “But wouldn’t it be a good idea if we’re getting as far away from those raptors as possible? What if they find us-”
“We’re not going into the swamp, especially not during the night,” Aurora shot back, “We don’t know what could be in there. Besides, I’ve traced our steps with the stars. The path we took is twisting and full of random turns, the raptors couldn’t trace us.”
Aurora turned to Ruby, and she got up.
“I’m going to gather some resources to create a campfire,” Ruby declared. As she walked off, Samuel looked back at her and then at Aurora.
“Why do you even keep that useless thing around anyway?” Aurora asked, “It’s not doing you any favors.”
Samuel was taken aback by her words.
“What are you even talking about?”
“You seem smart enough to know that a creature like that proves no use to us. So why do you keep it around like some pet?”
Samuel failed to find an answer to her question. Now that he thought about it… Why?
“I guess,” Samuel answered, “Something deep in my heart told me that this dodo would mean a lot to me.”
Aurora rolled her eyes, starting back off and into the lands below the cliff, as if she was trying to figure out where to go next. Samuel stared at her, and suddenly his vision flickered, showing her hunched over crying, but then it went away. Samuel turned away.
“What a grumpy lady,” Samuel thought, “No wonder why Nova doesn’t like her.”
Samuel’s thoughts slowly began to drift to Nova, and he leaned back and rested himself on the soft grass, staring up at the moon that just rose from the horizon. Unlike the night sky back home, this fantastical island’s night sky was filled with stars, and the moon was even larger than it was back home.
“I know you’re somewhere out there, Nova,” Samuel whispered, peering into the moon, “I hope you’re doing okay.”
But deep down, Samuel didn’t feel the need to worry.
“She’s a strong girl, she, she’s going to be okay. She can handle herself,” Samuel thought. He rested his hand on the dodo bird’s feathers, and closed his eyes gently.
“I miss you,” Samuel’s thoughts slowly came to a stop as he fell into a restful slumber.
I was playing on extinction, and I needed a Tapejara to help me build my base, as I was building very high. I went to the southeastern part of the sanctuary, there are a bunch Tapejaras there. I found a level 101 and knocked it out. Then I went to pick up a dodicurus from the desert biome. When I came back, the Tapejara was gone. Was dismayed, because that was the highest level one that I had found, and all of my kibble was on him. I moved on with my life, and after a month and a half, I was taking that same dodicurus from all that time ago to harvest some element dust. I saw a Tapejara chilling on the ground. As I was still looking for one to finish my base, I got a bit closer and pulled out my spyglass. But, I realized that I could see his level from the distance I was at. ‘That’s bizarre.’ I thought. I put on a ghille suit, and walked closer. I pulled out a Bola and snuck behind it. I started to wind up the bola, but then the Tapejara took off and flew right towards me. I was very confused, but I pulled out my tranq rifle. And fired a couple darts into him. He was unfazed, and continued towards me. I put my rifle away and readied my tek sword. Then, as he got close, he stopped, and hovered. I walked up to him, and he just flapped in place. Then I saw the full floating name: Tapejara: Level 149: following: AdmAckbarDS2. That was me. I was shocked. This was that Tapejara! He must have tried to follow me back to base but got left behind. I brought him home, and put a tek saddle on him. He was mine! I named him Starscream, and gunned down several Rexes with him. He was mine! I finished my base and cherished him. Hope you enjoyed the tale.
Flap-Flap was her name, and she... was my greatest tame. Highest level I think too. I took her everywhere, to the highest of mountains, to the most dangerous island. She was also my greatest cargo carrier, as I did not have a quetzal. Metal, obsidian, crystal, and various other things from dinosaurs. She could even kill Alpha Rexes! I remember she lived long enough to see her 200th birthday (level 200). Alas, Flap-Flap's great life came to an end... as I deleted the world she was on... for some reason?
Nonetheless, she was a great tame, and while she may not be alive now, her spirit will live in our memory, and hearts.
I had been chasing a Tapejara in the Red Woods for hours and eventually lost sight of it. I wanted one to have a shot at taming a Quetzal. Later on I went to show my boyfriend where my base was and I had the luckiest find ever! A Tapejara had spawned stuck in a rock. Fortunately the rock was breakable too! So I tranqed it without it being able to escape and when it went down I broke the rock to free it. Luckiest Tapejara find ever!
