Spawned on the smaller island, around -9375 +1862. Must be quite a rare spawn because I have cleared the islands many, many times and only saw him once.

Level 47, not flagged as rare, can be charmed with druid animal charm.
135 max hit, with the charm nerf it hits for 107 while charmed. Makes an excellent charm pet to clear the other raptors with, didn't seem to break charm any more than a regular raptor.
He is Lv 47, 8405hp

Lv 47
HP 8405 (according to GamParse)


Dropped nothing.

I pumped 7200 dmg into him before he fell. Always seems to spawn in place of Viscious Raptor. Killed him 3 times, twice in 2 consecutive days, and he never dropped loot.

I checked one Viscious Raptor and it took 5400 dmg.

(hmmm, 5400 and 7200, sounds like hard drive speeds to me)

Raptors have maybe 4800 HP. They vary a little, but not much.

He just spawned for me on the island with druid rings. I nuke of rend and 2 of draught of fire and he was only at 80%. Servers came down so i gated and camped before killing him. He hits like a ***** though. First time he spawned in 3 days of quadding raps on large and small island.

He's a softy :)

Made friends with him last night. He popped while I was quading and wanted to come play, so I charmed him and sent him in... Saved me an AOE actually, once they were low I just backed away and let him clean things up. That left him at half which would have been perfect except that charm didn't break for 4 more minutes, which was when that area was respawning! So, what the hell, I charmed him again and made him my slave for another quad. Pure candy, what can I say.

He probably would have been a real nuisance if I didn't have charm, but my wizzy is only 15 so it'll be awhile before I get to test that out.

Just started quadding at the small island today...Been pulling 3 raptors from the south side and a vicious raptor at the east end of the isle. Dinus just popped in this guy's spot. I quadded normally but was freekin out cuz there was a named (did /who dinus cuz i thought i targeted a player at first lol). Didnt have an increased resist because i landed everything (54 wizard). Normally if i didnt get resists, one raptor would fall first, then 2 after it, then the vicious would stop and id give him one 658 dmg nuke to kill him. With Dinus the first 3 fell like normal then i had to give him the one 658 plus 3 more to finish him. Luckily i had enough mana :D

Dropped a Rune of Frost used to make Ice Comet. All the raptors have been dropping higher lvl research ingredients, but not often.

how hard does he hit?
# May 25 2001 at 10:53 AM Rating: Default
I was soloing on the island and the thing is much more harder than the others. He have around 2000 hp more than the others. The others take me root + 4 dots (800 lifetap + 1150darkness + 1200 + 1700) and this one 6 (another 800 + 1150) and a little blast to finish.

Dinus coned blue to me at 47. Had a hard time taking him down, and was rewarded with nothing for my effort.

This guy has TONS of health. Normally, it take me (lvl 51 mage) about 2 1/2 - 3 bubbles of mana to kill raptors. My pet may go down to 1/2 at most. This guy, on the other hand, takes all of my mana and my lvl 51 earth pet with lava shield and burnout III cast on it went down to a sliver of health. Dropped jack squat. :(
Dinus Upped to 47

And yet I have not received any loot from him out of the 30 or 40 times I've killed him. He seems to be around 1/20 spawn, maybe less.

Dinus can spawn at any of the 3 vicious spawns, one of which is *not* on the druid ruins island :) Since they itemized Timorous and made raptors aggro/social, Dinus was made MUCH harder. He still hits for less than a normal raptor, but he has tons more hps and he is EXTREMELY aggro to pcs. I usually solo there and to kill him I have to kite and let my pet hit because it is nearly impossible to keep him engaged on the pet. Two times I have been with a partner here against Dinus and both times the partner didn't even cast on Dinus, but Dinus kept following my partner til he died (with me nuking it the whole time)
