Okay, first off, if you want to moan about how terrible the new nerf is, there's another thread for it. I was wondering if anyone was interested in discussing how to continue to get the best (PvM) damage output from a GD? Firstly, there's the template choice. Discord/tamer seems to be an obvious good one, but there are also other variants. Secondly, dragon choice. I've gone for dragons with high wrest/tact/str to maximise combat damage and the fire breath attack, but is this now less important than magery? What would your ideal dragon have? Thirdly, benchmarking. What's a good monster to test out how good a GD is (to compare with other GDs)? Peerless and champ spawns are both out because doing them repeatedly is tough. Suppose Doom is crowded and therefore also out.
