Rapticor is pretty easy for a named. My 48 druid just cast "Enveloping Roots", "Ensnare", "Drifting Death", "Drones of Doom", and I nuked him repeatedly with Starfire, which did not break the roots.

He never broke the root, never hit me, nothin'.

Root 'n Rot technique is VERY effective on Rapticor, but kiting isn't a good idea considering how many mobs you can't see with all the trees in Wakening Land.

Solo'd him a while back with 52 Ranger and he dropped 2 x Hand of Ixiblat and a Muzzle of Mardu and a Crystal Belt - all summoned Pet Toys. I managed to root'n rot him quite easily with Ranger dot and bow (had a kei so now problemo!). This could be why he's been proving difficult to others as I didn't get involved in melle with him. He did take about 5 times as long as the other raptor to splat but then tolan does provide the arrows!!!

LOL! Whoever updated these items as his Drops really needs to understand that Druids and Enchanters have this ability called Dire Charm that works on Animals level 46 and below.

Since Rapticor has approx 2x the HP of any of the other raptors, my guess is that someone DC'd him for a pet and gave him pet toys... and when they left the zone, Rapticor took his toys and went home. :D

Twinked 46 Ikky Monk with Fungi camping raptor ledge by Skyshrine entrance. Rapticor is fairly rare spawn. He stunned me quite a bit and hits pretty hard compared to others. Doubled for 105 often.

Had to fight him and FD 5 times before I killed him first time. With Fungi and bind wound (170) I healed faster than he did so eventually got him down. No loot first kill.

Tried all sorts of weap combinations and found that he can be stunned so used Sarnak Warhammer in primary and Zekhas in off hand. Resisted proc from either weap about 20%. Only took three FD's with this combo. Second kill had rune of infraction. <sigh>

. . . at least sometimes. He dropped Crushed Jaundice Gem when I killed him, which is used in the Enchanter Kael and Skyshrine armor. I'll echo the other posts that he has a ton of hit points. I fear kited him and it took as much time as fear kiting a giant anaconda in JPF. Fun kill, even as long as it took.

Raptior as pet
# Oct 27 2001 at 6:12 AM Rating: Default
Well hes a mean one.. BUT makes a GREAT pet :) I am a 48th lv bard and used him for HOURS to kill a ton of holgresh while doing the ice forged shackles quest. I killed quite a few holgresh, and Raptiors health was barely even dented. Not only that, but hes rather fast, which is nice and bad at the same time. Went on to use him to kill a few mercinaries and panthers also. Now whenever I run through WL I always check to see if he is up.

Solo the Raticor

I am a 48th Ranger and have soloed this guy several times. The key is to snare at tunnel mouth and run deep into tunnel before zone. Turn and fear before he reaches you. Stay on him to tunnel mouth, then stop and dot. Repeat till dead. With prppper timing can solo easy with only a bub or two of lost health due to mistimed fear or resists.

more hp then you can shake a stick at!
# Oct 03 2001 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent
As a 49 druid with 203 wisdom it took my full bar of mana to kill him, and thats with sitting to med while he's rooted and my dots were eatting away at him.
6 drifting death @650 each = 3900
6 immolate @240 each = 1440
6 engulfing roots @ 157each = 942
Total hp aprox = 6282
He dropped nothing at all and the xp was less then I got for killing a tigersaurus. The only resist I got was on immolate once so his MR isnt too high.
Well thats my 2cp worth, G'luck hunting.

Kill this guy last night with me (46 Ranger) & and lev 44 ranger. Dont think he had anywhere near 6300 hp. I would say more like 4 to 4.5k.

Maybe your dots weren't sticking for the entire duration?

That would appear to be correct daggar. DoTs dont do full damage when a mob is rooted.

Last time I fear kited him he had around 5k hps. It still took a while to do though. He dropped a Crushed Topaz.

"DoTs dont do full damage when a mob is rooted."

WRONG Dots do do full dmg when a mob is rooted, they DONT do full dmg when a mob is moving.
RE: more hp then you can shake a stick at!

The main reason you ran out of mana is because you were using engulfing Roots, I still use Ensnaring Roots at 51. A lot less mana, and still lasts through about 2 rounds of DOTs most of the time. Just FYI :)

I tackled this beast this past weekend. Killed a few Green Tigeraptors, one blue Tigersaurus without much trouble, then Rapticor shows up. Never heard of him. He cons blue to me so I attack....OUCH!! I have to root and back up to heal with my Deepwater Helm before he has even lost a bub of health. I cast my Divine Might spell just as the battle started and it wore OFF before the battle was over. 10 more healing events later...going OOM completely (I was at half when I started)...several resisted stuns and roots...and using my Lay Hands, we were down to the last blow. One or two more blows and he turns and walks off. A few more blows on me and I'm down, no more mana for heals, roots, stuns or even a Yaulp II! I am out of tricks.

Unfortunately, I lost. One more root and I would have had him, but he's not to be taken lightly unless you can Snare, Fear Animal and Dot. If you have these abilities like a Ranger or a Druid, or can kite him like a Bard, I'm sure he's cake, if you don't...WATCH OUT!!

Keep in mind my healing was mana free with my DW Helm and he still took me out after a 15+ REAL LIFE minutes in battle!

This guy knows how to lay the spank down. I've gone three rounds with him at level 42 trying fear kiting and chant kiting, but have yet to take him down due to adds. He hits like a ton of bricks, but its a matter of pride now...
51 Mage can solo Rapticor, dropped Crushed Lava Ruby & Tiger
# Aug 14 2001 at 1:04 AM Rating: Decent
Just soloed this today. Usually my pet can solo 2 tigerraptors by itself (along with a DS). Usually my pet can solo 1 tigersaurus by itself (along with DS). This freaking mob my mob could not solo. Made new pet, DS it, sic it on the Rapticor. After 1 min, I find my pet is at 60% HP and the Rapticor is still at like 90%. Ahh, well, I am at 80% mana. Casted SoS for 600dmg each and finally Rapticor goes down. Pet is at 2% HP and I am at 20% mana. Dropped Crushed Lava Ruby and Tigerraptor Hide. Yay

I just soloed him at 49 (ranger) using fear. He has a ton of hps, more than enything I've ever soloed by far. Took me five minutes of DOTS+Fear+melee to kill him. At the end I was at 10% mana and 50% health. He does not run faster than sow, though he runs a bit faster than normal raptors, even snared he's fast.

He dropped.... words and meat :(

I kited him fairly easily (51 bard, chant kite) and he dropped a Rapticor Hide. No idea if the hide is for anything.

I've read he also drops the Strong Raptor Guts used for the Iceforged Shackles quest.

The guts (for the shackles quest) drop off of raptors and sauruses too. If you're in Wake looking for the Strong Raptor Guts, your best bet is to take on the smaller guys. This guys is a freight train.

Special Tailoring

That'd be my guess. Likely some nifty armor can be tailored from it, maybe a Vest or Boots... but since tailoring recipes are a pain to find (not anywhere NEAR as many folks do the high end tailoring game as do smithing... for obvious reasons) it might either A.) still be a closely guarded secret or B.) not been discovered yet.

All tigeraptors can drop tigeraptor pelts. It is used to make the ranger-only studded tigeraptor armour. Some of these pieces are fairly nice, but they are not trivial even at a skill of 250. If you are interested in the recipes, they can be bought from one of the tailoring vendors in Thurgadin.

He said Rapticor hide ... not Tiggeraptor hide. I have soloed him 3 times (rng 52) and he does have alot of hp but not bad for a ranger to kill and gives great exp when you do.

All I got for loot is meat though. =(

I foolishly snared Rapticor while playing my lvl 45 druid. He conned blue to me and I didn't realize he was a"named" raptor. My mistake.

I thought it would be a piece of cake at first. Root stuck and so did Drifting Death. In fact things were great until he was close to half dead.

That's when this fella started resisting roots. And when a root would finally stick, he would break it in about 10-15 sec. I went OOM just trying to root him. Finally zoned into Skyshrine to break aggro.

The one I fought was lower than level 45, but was a tough guy. 4 drifting deaths and about 12 55-damage roots didn't quite drop him to half health.

Faster than sow.
# May 16 2001 at 5:01 PM Rating: Default
Rapticor also seemed faster than sow.
As a lvl 51 sk, I was able to keep him darked and feared through most of the fight
I ran out of mana with him at about 1/4 health, so I hit him with Harmtouch and
that was enough to start him running away.
At one point he dropped Darkness while feared and even with Jboots, I could not catch up to him at all. He seemed like he was much faster than sow.
He dropped a crushed flame emerald. Which is for the Melee Bracer quest.

Good luck with this guy.
