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 :(
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.
I have been trying to tame this creature for a long time now ,I tried to tame it around 5 times and failed all so I thought I’ll take a break and tame something else , so I went to the red woods to tame a dire bear. After that I was returning to my base and I saw a tapi so quickly went to my base , got the supplies I needed and came back to where I saw it. I was just about to bola it but a raptor bit it so it ran , I thought I lost another opportunity but there was a cliff it hit that and could not escape, I thought that this was finally my chance so I threw a bola at it and to my surprise it did not work so I tried agin but this time the Tapi disappeared and then my game crashed, and I opened Dododex and started typing this(and can y’all give me some tips and how to knock it out).
Let me tell you the story of how I tamed my Tapejara. I was searching for a high level Tapejara but was having no luck finding one. My search took my from the south all the way to Fars peak in the northeast. This is when I saw a giga and got sidetracked and started messing with the giga by attacking its tail and getting out of there before it can bite back. After shaving ~15K health off the giga it randomly attacked a wild Tapejara. It survived and flew away. Once a Tapejara is spooked one of the only way to tame it (on mobile at least) is by killing it and reviving it at a revival platform, but you need to retrieve the animal’s implant from its dead body. So I just killed the fleeing Tapejara thinking that it was probably some lvl 20 trash, and that’s when I realised it’s a lvl 150 (max on my world). Its body plummeted into the bottom of a lake where I spotted a baryonyx not long ago and it was getting dark. I was debating whether to try to retrieve its implant or not. I decided to risk it. I landed my pteranodon on a rock and jumped into the lake. It was pitch black underwater and I had to swim back to my pteranodon to reconfirm the position of the body. But all I saw on shore was a wild carno... and then I realised I was swimming in the wrong direction so I turned around and successfully got back to my pteranodon. After reconfirming the position of the body I jumped into the lake again, but soon, bam! The baryonyx stunned me. Luckily I had an ascendent sword and killed it in a few hits. I still couldn’t find the body so I went back to my pteranodon, this time to build a mental map of the lakebed. I jumped in for a third time and in the darkness, I saw the outline of a body. I opened its inventory and retrieve the implant seconds before the body decomposed. I immediately flew back to base. After landing my pteranodon I left the game, turned off my phone, and asked myself: wtf just happened. After a few hours I opened the game again and collected material for the revival platform and the cage I was planning to build around it. The next day I was finally ready to tame the Tapejara. I decided to play it safe and still wear a gillie suit and use a bola to tame it (just like how you would normally tame one) and use the cage around the revival platform as a fail safe (spoilers: best decision of my life). As the Tapejara was being revived and I was charging my bola the behemoth gateway of my cage randomly opened. The Tapejara flew towards the opened gate... I managed to bola it just before it left the cage. After two tranq darts to the face with my ascendent longneck rifle, it was down. I murdered a stego and a rex, stole their prime meat, and tamed up the tapejara. I named him “luckiest man alive”.
Apparently tapejara can attach to cliff stone!.how to tame: bring bola and shoot tranq arrow.the torpor will be so fast to knock it down if you shoot its head. I prefer use kibble..prime meat takes 2 days on ARK time
Greetings survivor. I would tell you about my memorable things with my Tapejara.
First time its really hard to tame tapejara, even to catch it. But one day i planned myself to finding one tapejara withour other gear. First attempt is fail when i wanted to throwing bola, miss the target. But no problem for me, i could find the other one. Second attempt im failed too, because there is one tree that obstruct my progress, but im really wanted to try again. So at third attempt its my lucky day. When Wild Male Tapejara level 38 landed im preparing myself with full power. First i swing the bola, then i sprint toward tapejara and boom. It was direct hit and im shooting some tranq arrow without thinking too much. After he unconscious im glad and puting food tame into tapejara. It was not easy tame, because 2 minutes after i took down him im being attacked by most annoying dinosaur in my history, such as Dilo, Raptor, and Carno. Luckyilly i had sword in my hotbar so i could shredding them easily. It took over 2 days on game and 1 hour in real life and finally its tamed. Im thinking how to escort tapejara without casualities and then i had an idea. I could transfer him into red obelisk(my house is near red obelisk). And after i arrived at my lovely house, im making Tapejara saddle to adventure the island. Finally my dream comes true. I named him Ravager, and until now May 28 2020 im still with Ravager. Adventure, invasion, ambushed by Allo, and defeating Alpha carno and Raptor together. I always press unmount from Ravager without efforts. That was made Ravager dissapointed being his pet. And he helped us a lot to catch Queen Of Sky, Quetzal.
