What makes a raptor deadly is it’s pounce attack, which renders the target similar to torpor unconcious for a few seconds( you will not gain torpor, but you will be helpless). During this timeframe a raptor can use its biting attacks while in the pounce stage to inflict serious damage to you and your armor. However, if you ride a medium/large mount, you can negate the pounce, making the raptor a nuisance rather than a killing machine.
