The dreadnought raptor is a large, distinctly marked bird, with a wingspan twice the height of a giantman.  Glossy black feathers and white markings on its broad wings and rounded tail give the raptor an ominous appearance, and feathers cover its legs to its feet.  A dark ruff borders the dreadnought raptor's bald red head and neck.  Its hooked bill and powerful talons are well suited for hunting.

Hunting strategies

A melee fighter won't be able to hit them until after they swoop to attack. However, once they have attacked, they're within range of a melee weapon. Try to stun them or to sever a limb; either will make them tumble to the ground.
