8 man party getting owned by raptors and such 4-5 levels higher because they link. Wiped party about 10 times in 5 different camps. Is there something I'm missing?

Time to find new hunting grounds, carve our own paths! When XI finally hit American/European soil the XP grind camps had already been established from a years worth of JP players trial/error and experience.

It is now time for us to find our own in this new world! (^.^)b

I see you bolded the 4-5 part, but that 4 levels up is the target range this patch. 5 levels is just fine (especially raptors) in a full party.

Your party was indeed missing something: good players. I grinded up raptors five levels up last night and it was brilliant exp, four links were godlike.

You serious?

My 38 cnj could solo 44 doblyns.

In fact partied with another 38 thm we could beat a 44 link + 43.

How can an 8 man party lose to 2-3 raptors 5 levels above them? a not-naked gladiator can take 3-4 of those mobs with one healer while the others AoE.

There's a large difference between fighting Raptor and fighting Doblyns, pre and post patch. Despite the changes, Raptor is still harder than Doblyns by a large margin but they are relatively easy to kill if you got a full party. It's most likely that your party is using outdated gear/under optimal or that you have never fought something seriously before (like Grass Raptor pre 1.17? One breathe KO mage.). Seriously Raptor is weaker now, lvl 42 Raptor failed to OHKO my lvl 31/33 THM.

Here's a few things you can do:
Stoneskin + Shockspike
Run out of Breathe range when it starts casting
Don't stay behind it to eat Tail whip
Have someone tank
Lure them together and AoE
Refresh Stoneskin whenever possible
