If you only want to use one chain bola and your on a cluster server, tame a reaper, bola the tropeo and then use the reaper's right click attack. Adds 20 seconds to the bola each time you right click and it hits.
Whoever said "it's wingspan is 2.4 meters that's a meter bigger than a tapejara so it will likely be between a tapejara and a quetzal in size" dude 2.4 meters is barely bigger than a person and the tapejara in ark have a wingspan roughly 8 meters the quetzals at least 14. Seriously?🤦
If you get lucky enough to find it walking on the ground you can wing flap it with a wyvern without it aggroing you and push it into your trap. Also if you bola it it pike it close to death and then wait approximately 10 min it works like a starve tame for quicker taming. You can get 3 feedings out of 1 bola this way.
I had one spawn in on Scorched Earth. On the mountain North West on the map just North of the Scar on the right. It is a rare spawn but apparently they do spawn in on other maps. I thought my game was broken when I found one cause I thought they were exclusively for Crystal Isles which I have yet to play so I Googled it and yeah its a rare spawn.
On valq these things are everywhere nearby the castle and the area around it. I’ve seen them above trees and walking on the ground. They only attack u if u attack it first so use this to your advantage. Gl fellow tamers.
First regular bola, then build four pillars around the animal. Place 3 ceilings over it and your pen is made. Use your Argy to hold the chain bola’s you need. Place the ballista, load a chain bola, shoot it and quickly pick up the ballista to never loose it. Starve tame is way faster.
