How to tame a tapeajara
Step 1 get grilling
Step 2 lay behind it and throw bola
Step 3 put three small gates on tape Amara
Step 4 tranq it out
Step 5 put meat in to it
(KEEP GATE AROUND IT EVEN IF KNOCKED OUT)
boom its yours
If you try to bola the Tapejara but miss, it’ll fly into the skies... and will stay in the skies! Bring Rare Flowers before trying to tame one just in case.
The way I tame Tapejaras is I bola it, and then I build a row of 5 Dino Gateways with gaps in between over the Tapejara, and then I close off the entrances with Dino Gates. Then, I’ll tranq it out.
If I miss the bola and the Tapejara takes off, then I’ll build the trap anyways, and leave the doors open. Then, I’ll fly up to the Tapejara, eat a rare flower, and lure the now aggressive Tapejara into the trap. I’ll dismount my flier (and leave my flier in the trap), quickly exit the trap and close the doors, and then wait for the Tapejara to stop attacking my mount. Then I’ll knock out the Tapejara.
These are the easiest methods I know of to tame a Tapejara. I hope this helps!
ARRRRRRRGH I just had THE WORST taming experience! Pro tip: DON'T try taming a high level one by dangling from an argy by a grappling hook... You'll end up dying TWICE and losing your argy, guns, and 80 narcotics... >:( :(
Extremely difficult to tame. Best options are to bola it, and then use a longneck rifle with tranq darts. Otherwise trying to get it to fly into the side of a cliff and get stuff is the other option for a solo tame.
I tamed 6 of these guys in a little over an hour. (Have 14 now because I absolutely love them) They’re not that difficult after you learn how to use the bola. On crystal isles, far right side of map in the middle, there is a valley of floating islands that has tiers on each side and waterfalls/rainbows at the back. (I’m new so don’t know the regions yet) Land a pteranodon a little ways away once the tapejara lands (I say this because these are the easiest bird to tame- also with a bola).. once I got better at the bola, I just run up on them and bola them before they take off. Then tranq it 3-4 times in head (depending on level). It goes down before bola breaks.. feed it kibble/ mutton for quickest results but regular raw meat will do fine, just slower. The majority of this area is non predators (as long as you’re not at the top near the water and giant jumping spider crabs try to eat you lol)- your Tappy will be safe
Since the new update, rare flowers make dinos aggro on to you, you can use this on a tapejara and it will follow you to a trap you've built. Just remember that each flower gives only 10 seconds of that debuff so if the bird is far away from your trap, you have to use it frequently while coming back. Also, if you need it to follow you after you've gotten off your dino, you need to eat another rare flower so that it can agro on to you once again.
On ark Mobile around the green Obelisk, I have never seen so many In my life. I’ve seen many cool / pretty colors of the Tapejaras. Around the green Obelisk on mobile, I have estimated I have seen 15 around the green Obelisk. I have found one by the river of the obelisk, and 100 meters away ANOTHER right in the entrance of the small jungle, MORE by the swampy, cross redwood and swamp areas. I managed to tame this the hard way. I used a pteranodon and brought and Tranq long neck rifle, keep fleeing. Finally managed to land in safe place, now I figured out it could’ve been easier ALOT with ghille, a bola, and some rare flowers that Argo it. I don’t know why but I tamed it easily the hard way, but wow, I have never realized there are so many and so easy to tame once you understand the concept of taming these, absolutely easy to tame and mutate it, breed it a crud ton and get a overpowered Tapejara With either high melee, speed, stamina, weight, whatever. Hope you learned from here, bye...
At laaast tamed one of these bois really colourful and pretty rare I searched for a week and discovered the whole map they are usually found in redwoods what you gotta do is kill lots of things in the redwoods and wait for them to spawn then be ready with a bola if you feed it raw meet and starve tame it would tame about 20-30 mins so be ready to defend them.
