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?🤦
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.
5 minute tame.
Trap it, Chain Bola it, Shoot it with a gun 2 times. 1 time for low lvl
Once the bola comes off it’s food will drop to heal itself.
When food is about half (use magnifying glass), Bola it again and feed kibble. It will take 1 kibble each 10 seconds. Tamed in mins
U can ride these without the saddle but u won’t get the jet boosts and missiles. They are also the biological version of a grinder. Use chain bolas on them and passive tame. Keep them bolaed bc they will kill u.
When trapping, once using the chain bola the first time DO NOT FEED IT. Shoot it with a couple arrows to get it’s health below half. Once it escapes from the chain bola, re-bola it And you should be able to feed it multiple times within the bola duration. Tried today on small tribes, level 120 and 140
just tamed a lvl 65 with 4 behemoth gates and multiple ballistas. It will take 26min and 30 seconds until it takes the second kibble (exceptional kibble) be sure u dont have any openings because its like stealing gems from rollrats. It will never forgive u.
Make sure to exhaust this thing before you feed and bola it. You can damage it do decrease it's food before you feed it and it wont decrease taming effectiveness. Share this to not have to wait 1.5 hrs next to a trap.
The best way to tame one is to bola it cage it in stone dinosaur gates with ceilings over the top, or a standard arge trap with a stone pillars at the end, when it escapes. Bola it again and wait in 5 mins it'll starve and then you can insta tame a 150 like I did.
After hitting it with a Bola don't give kibble, place a trap around it and keep hitting with Bola, it will starve the trope faster, if you give kibble and the taming bar starts running it will starve ridiculously slow
A 150 took 35 mins between bolas and kibble feed. Don’t get too close - you need to punch to get away which resets the taming bar. Also only keeping it caught under a ceiling with 2 columns seemed to work. If it can fly up and flee even in a larger trap. taming % plummeted quickly.
To quickly tame this thing shoot it with chain bola and don’t feed it right away. Watch it’s food and take your best guess when to feed it based on food stat. I did this with a 130 and tamed it with kibble in 2 minutes
