    Dragons should not be able to hit you for 70 with Fire Breath....then be able to cast spells on you....all while hitting you with a big punch..especially when your in a corpse proof suit....

    .......oh... not to mention the actual person controlling the pet either spamming flamestrike...or hitting you with with arrows or melee specials?

    1vs1 its not that big of a threat......but if your in a group setting and a group of oh...lets say...2-3 tamers sick their dragon on you......2 fire breaths alone usually kill someone....lets add 3 firebreaths for an average of what....210 HP?
    or 2 firebreaths for a total of 140 hp?

    I'm not saying nerf it period....I'm saying for player vs player action. Maybe make it where the dragon's firebreath is reduced when flagging other players or limit the amount of firebreathing they are allowed to use in a certain given time period?

    How about a nerf for people who want to nerf something they cant handle?

    Like a pacifier...?

    Anyone wanna take bets on how many dead horses we will see beat on this thread?

    Oo, how about a nerf that makes it so a plate of cookies heals you to full health and keeps healing you for 100 pts for 30 minutes, and a cake can make you invulnerable!

    Now thats called a tasty nerf! :D

    Dragons are supposed to be tough and extremely deadly.....Back in the day, when a newbie could solo a dragon, I always felt there was something way off base there.

    The complaining of pvp and tamers. If a player is playing his/her tamer and going against another player, guess what, that's player versus player.....

    The complaining that saying all kill isn't a skill. Taming IS a skill, regardless of ones personal opinion....alot of personal opinions contain the word "should" or "shouldn't"

    The complaining of a tamer having additional skills....that's game mechanics.
    If UO allowed my tamer to pack an uzi, I would.

    I say stratics outta nerf the word nerf.

    later, oh defeated one.

    dragons were fair when you could cast a gate and lure the dragon in and make the tamer go into the gate to rescue them. Nowadays, a mage is NOT going to kill a greater dragon, EVER, if he is fighting even a semi competent pvper. Not everyone should be an archer with a dragon slaying bow (which by the way, an archer is the best at ANY sort of pvm in the game, period), and dragons definitely shouldnt be capable of warping to your position instananeously while casting a firebreath, hitting you for 30-40 with its claws, and casting a double fs, all withing .5 seconds.

    yeah. :(

    perhaps you should stop trying to fight tamers ?
    even better , stop trying to PvP.

    i really wish they would just remove PvP then there would be alot less crying nerf all the time.

    Right and if you stopped pvp, then you would lose 30-35% of your player base because they would quit. And your game would most likely end. It would be hard to take a 35% loss in revenue. Not to mention the revenue they lose to people who buy tokens and exspansions that pvp.
     
  14. What we need to do is get rid of the speed hackers that hang out around just about any fel gates. That way we won't have to listen to these cheaters complain that they are not able to kill EVERY man, woman or child that steps thru to the other side. Or, GOD FORBID, any of these non-hackers attempt to get a powerscroll or two without having to be escorted by his/her dragon.

    This is definitely not a new subject, discussion or set of responses. For brevity's sake could we not just reduce this post to the following from now on:

    Bored at Work: Greater Dragons are too strong in PvP, Nerf Em!
    Lurker 420: Nuh uh! Archers suck in PvP cause they can use moving shot with one of their bows, Nerf Em!
    Veteran_Flamer: We've heard this a million times, would you guys just shut up!?
    Bored at Work: You shut up!
    Lurker 420: You shut up!
     
  16. DOWN WITH GREATER DRAGONS!!

    :cursing: :flame: :gee: :stretcher: :sad2: << THATS ALL THEY CAUSE IS MISERY !!!
