Dinosaur of the Day #19 - Charlie

JWA_Profile_Carnotaur

Charlie was one of the Velociraptors that are being trained by Owen Grady that appears in Jurassic World. She meets her end when she gets blown up by an InGen Security Trooper after turning on the humans during the assault on the Indominus Rex.

So, thoughts on this dinosaur? Is it worth including on a team? Tactics and suggestions? What changes would you make and anything else you can think of?

Basically Charlie is a better version of the Utahraptor and at some point in your Arena career she could be worth the time to include on your team but she’ll never beat the basic Velociraptor as a must have dinosaur. As with the other raptors from Owen’s team, I feel that Charlie is there for the fans of the films and for the collectors more than for the game players.

Yes, she is better than Utah, and I see a lot of ppl use Utah for some reason… I always tell them Charlie is faster. I have her at a high level for some reason

Absolutely right. The problem with the “named” Raptors is that they need to better than the default Velociraptor and they aren’t.

The 1.7 update saw Charlie’s damage increased from 1420 to 1490.

Not a big increase but a small step in making her more useful.

It has been nearly a year since the Dinosaur of the Day discussions started and I thought it might be nice to slowly revisit them and see how things have changed.

The only change Charlie has had is a boost to damage. Everything else remains the same. I think my initial thoughts of Charlie have largely remained the same although I might be a bit more generous when comparing to Velociraptor than I was. Even so, I feel she is a stop gap between Velociraptor and a later better hybrids or for those who want to field a Owen’s pack theme team.

What are your thoughts on Charlie these days?

With using blue and echo for indom gen 2 and indo gen 2, i would like to see ludia use charlie and echo for a new epic or legendary hybrid of the JP3 raptors. Lore wise it wouldnt make sense but it would be fun

Cunning Impact.

Other than a reduction in damage and a tiny speed boost, Charlie has not change really with her stats. She has lost critical impact in favour of cunning impact. I’m not sure if this is a boost or not really as it could be seen either way. I think she still remains a slightly better velociraptor but that she will remain a DNA farm for her hybrid, Erikogamma.

I don’t see her as Raid material at all unless we get lower level bosses, and even then there are probably better options.

What are your thoughts on Charlie after the 2.0 update and what is the best way to use her now?

I believe Charlie is nothing more than a Utah version 2.0. more difficult to acquire. I wanted it to have different abilities and so each Raptor had its different ability.

Cunning Strike and Critical Impact wouldn’t be bad!

I would say Charlie is a good raptor, but it got nerfed with the loss of crit impact as she used to hit like a semi. However, she isn’t as good as velociraptor just because of the lower speed and damage. But she is probably the best of the rare raptors
