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.
My dudes I recomend Gillette suit,bola then tranq it. if u have access to allow kibble THEN USE IT! They love allo kibble.if u don't have allo kibble just use prime meat and make sure u have a lot of narcotics at least 50 or 100
just a general tip . In ark mobile, i discoverd that sleeping then knocking will cause more hunger then just knocking and waiting or knocking then sleeping. This is how I got my Anklyo and tapejara, Gallimims’ Therizinosaurus etc...
If your in ark mobile, and you have access to potent dust and dodo feathers, craft some dodo arrows and shoot the particular tapejara your looking for with the dodo arrow to activate agro on it and lure them. If your in normal ark (pc, ps4 or xbox) use rare flowers to lure it into a trap.
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.
If you have any points in Melee dont try to beat it to knock it out, i got so close to taming a beautiful one, but my club killed it (I only had 4 points in) now they don’t spawn at all...any advice on where to find them away from the blue obelisk in the center?
Look it is hard to knock them out because of the fact that if you get close to them they will run. So you are going have to hit a 360 bola trick shot with the bola and hit it then knock it out. One more thing whe you are shooting it with tranqs they have low health so wait 5 seconds to let the narc kick in. Have fun and good luck survivors!
Wear ghillie suit before approaching. Crouch/crawl up to then when it lands and use tranquilizer darts instead of arrows. Arrows have a very high kill chance. Once it goes down circle the tame with spike walls as tapejara are very fragile!
Probably the best flyer on The Ark, while I still think the Wyvern might be better on Scorched earth. Still, I love that you can hang upside down and on sheer cliffs. My absolute favorite flyer. ðŸ˜Š good luck out there!
