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.

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 :)

Quite tough, but killable by a 45 necromancer. Fear seemed to last a little less than normal against it. Dropped only a chunk of meat and raptor meat for me.

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
#Blaizon, Posted: Feb 15 2002 at 7:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wow, are you on crack? SoS? Scars of Sigil? Thats a 54 spell. Maybe Char you were referring to? Oh wait that is a 660 DD and is also 52. mmm, maybe lava bolt? Oh nope.. That's 810.... Lets see.. LIAR

hmm, real intelligent flame there. SoS = Shock of Swords, which is a 600hp DD.

Do us all a favour. Dont post.
