While we have many different raptors such as our iconic “raptor” and deinonychus. We don’t really have what is a larger apex raptor on the size capacity of our apex carnivores such as the Allosaurus, Rexes and Spino. While it would still be the smallest of the Apex dinosaur category. I still believe it will be a fun addition to add to our list of main boss dinosaurs. Common Name: Utahraptor Species: (Utahraptor Ostrommaysi) Time: Cretaceous Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressive Basic description: The Utahraptor (utahraptor ostrommaysi) was one of the largest Dromaeosaurids that lived in North America during the Early Cretaceous period ranging around 16-23ft (4.8-7 metres). Utahraptor Dossier: Wild: When I thought outrunning and surviving attacks of raptors was hard enough… it wasn’t long til I stumbled into something far larger… deadlier… and just as smart. A pack of utahraptors is a challenge in itself. Further study shows how fascinating and how intimidating such creatures are both in broad daylight and nighttime. They often roam in packs of 3-4. Capable of tackling prey 3-4 times their size with confidence and finesse. With their calls echoing through the air, they are capable to holding their own with the apex carnivores in the region. The more they are challenged the harder they are to take down. Making them either a very deadly threat or a capable ally. Taming: Utahraptors being highly intelligent they have also a very interesting method of taming. To gain a Utahraptor’s trust you need to provide it with food in the form of corpses (like the Carcha or Fjordhawk). This can be done with a pack of Utahs or a single individual. For a pack, the alpha Utah will sniff with a curious bark and eye you and the body that you are dragging. (Same if it’s only one). The alpha will eat the body and gain trust depending on the type of dino it’s been given. Larger animals give more trust. Once the trust is full, the Utahs form an alliance hunt. If the alpha approves the rest obey. As you will be given the opportunity to go on a pack hunt for a certain time limit allowing you to tame the alpha Utah. Over this course you are to lead a certain amount of creatures to the utahraptors in which they will kill. However, you are not allowed to have any other tames next to the Utahs. Any apex animal (rex, giga, Spino) will startle and break the trust. Any lower tier dinosaur will be deemed potential prey and be attacked (lower tier carnivores like Carnos, herbivores). Being one of the pack you must be able to provide the group meals yourself. This will mean you will often have to run on foot and lure prey to the Utahs. Putting trust in them is the same as them putting trust in you. After the alpha Utah is tamed. Should there be more pack members, the next in command will allow you time to do the same method and continues. (Initial tamed Utahs will not break the trust of other wild Utahs of the pack until they are podded or within a certain range away from the rest). Domesticated: Utahraptors are diverse and being intelligent. They will provide both utility and power to your arsenal. They have two different stances. “Assault Mode” and “Tactical Mode” (Can be swapped like how the Desmodus can turn on and off heat vision) Passive: “Apex Adrenaline” when faced against apex predators or animals much larger than itself. Utahraptors gain a slight personal movement speed boost and receives less damage. This includes when fighting against bosses. Assault mode: This stance makes the Utah a deadly weapon focussed on attack. It has its initial bite, primary attack. It’s secondary is a jump back kick which also sends it backwards slightly. This ability causes a “Dazed” debuff and causes the target to be slowed. It’s third skill is a call which doesn’t affect many creatures except for those categorised under medium tier dinosaurs like Carnos, Trikes, etc. This causes “Intimidation” which reduces the target’s melee by a certain percentage. Tactical Mode: The stance causes Utahraptor to use more supportive and strategic. Similar to how it has the initial bite. This bite will be significantly weaker. Except this one now has “Weakening” the bites cause the dino to lose stamina and while this debuff is active, the target has less stamina recovery out of battle and also when exhausted it will also prevent the target from using attacks. (E.g if a giga person was to spam the bite over and over. This debuff prevents them from being able to do so should they run out of stamina.) A balance for pvp. It’s secondary is now a grab. This ability allows the raptor to pick up smaller target in its mouth. While in the Utah’s mouth, players can either bite to hurt the target in their jaws or press the secondary skill again to throw them a certain distance. The third skill which was the call now changes to a “Call to Arms” any tame within the roar radius now gains a new buff. This skill now gives allies reduced stamina consumption and increased health regeneration. (This won’t heal like the owl or daedon, more increases their natural healing). Anything classified within the dromaesaurid family such as raptors, deinonychus will also gain the Utah’s passive. Wild raptors and deinonychus hearing this call will become your allies temporarily like how yuty can ally Carnos. Utahraptor also has the ability to jump significantly high. Capable of reaching the height of a giga’s head or slightly higher. Strategy: For PVE, the Utahraptor is a late-game dinosaur tame that boosts both power to the tribe’s arsenal and tactical ability. Utahs are made to fight dinosaurs significantly more challenging. Meaning a beneficial tame to use against bosses and a tame able to hold their own decently against the apex carnivores which can ruin a person’s day. Utahraptors rank potentially at the lowest or mid among the apex carnivores. Being slightly smaller than an allosaurus when it comes to size, but it would be faster than all of them. Having the speed slightly faster than a yutyrannus, and against bosses and other larger carnivores this speed increases. However, their utilities rank them among Rexes, Spinos and Yutys being the second apex carnivore to hunt intentionally in a pack. Pvp: Utahraptors are specialised for being teamwork assets. Having an assault mode to slow enemies. Used for both offense and defence. While the tactical ability allows people who can time their skill right, to potentially grab or ambush people off their dino saddles. Kidnapping and making a quick getaway, or positioning them a more favourable way in a battle. Such debuffs like “Weakening” also keeps players in mind to play carefully. Since it reduces stamina and prevents the target to become so exhausted they are unable to move. This can balance ways where many people often take advantage of the exhaustion trade off to torpor like giga bites. Making people think twice before taking on a Utahraptor. (Personal note: While I do know this isn’t a dinosaur that is “Unique” in terms of concept. I think that there isn’t really a dromaesaurid that has an aura like our other carnivores. While Deinonychus has proven its worth among boss fights. It lacks the size to display an absolute presence on the battlefield. Let me know what you think)
