    Can anyone please help me out here ...first off what am I looking for when purchasing a dragons (resists?, stats?, intel?) Secondly, does anyone have a super dragon that qualifies as beastly? Obviously this is for PvM.

    Thanks,

    My personal requirements are max wrestling first, max phys/fire resist second.

    Everything else is pretty meh. Max HP is nice, but only postpones the inevitable. Wres/resists increase survivability.

    I agree

    you want 940 plus hps (firebreath damage)

    nice to have over 600 str and int

    120 Plus wrest is a must

    80/80/45/55/60 resists are ok!

    I think i have a beast in my stable hit me up on icq and you can take a look..not playing siege atm but i'll meet ya.

    woot!

    High resists is the first thing I look at when shopping, if they are good, then I'll look at the other stats.

    90% Physical and fire resist means more than super high HP with 80% resists.

    Taking 10 damage per 100 dealt will let you last longer than taking 20 damage per 100 dealt. You could take 400 HP damage totaling 40 damage received with 90% resists, and can heal it with one casting.

    I dont use my dragon for PvP, so I wouldn't know what to tell you for that. Obviously players will attack the dragon more intelligently than the AI, so different stats may be more important.

    I was under the impression that the fire breath was based on percentage of health remaining, not based on its max.

    When wild, I know this is the case, you beat the dragon down and its damage output drops to nearly nothing.

    So the next question is... does higher Strength increase the max damage at full health?

    It seems the answer is an implied 'yes'.
