    Ohhh today my legendary peacer kept a greater dragon still for 1.5 seconds! I was so elated that I almost fell out of my chair! I had to compose myself quickly because I knew a triple cast was coming my way and I had to get some distance.

    The same people posting (whining) over and over about how they are feel greater dragons are overpowered isn't going to get anything done. It's just a waste of time and space.

    Oh I have given up on complaining about this...what you see here is bitter resignation to the fact that the dragons will not be brought into line with the other "weapons". If anything,the Dev's will keep adding even more and more powerful pets into the game to the point where tamers wont even have to leave the bank area. They will give a simple command to the pet saying "[greater dragon] go hunt in [dungeon] for [x-hours] and search for [kryss with high ssi]"

    How many times is it necessary to mention that EA have said they're aware and plan to balance greater dragons, before it sinks in with you guys? You'd have to live on the moon to not hear the anti-GD whining here - THEY KNOW!

    Much as I agree that tamers need looking at, and greaters too, I'm rapidly getting to the point where I don't care how badly you're ganked anymore. You aren't doing yourselves or your "cause" any favours by spamming "nerf GDs" everywhere. Reasonable balanced discussion is one thing, crying like a stuck pig is entirely different.

    Har Har.

    How many times have you been mortaled by a GD? How many times do they lower your defenses? Attacks? Do they deadly poison you? Perhaps they spam armor ignore on you? Disarm?

    Oh they bleed you. GASP! Those fiends.

    A greater dragons' power (not speed) is a needed boost for a tamer being on foot. It is easily killed by an archer and leaves the tamer defenseless at most times.

    Those incomponent about dealing with a tamer/GD are the ones who are bitter because they just don't get the mechanics of the game.

    How many times has a non-tamer been able to cast 3 spells on you AND teleport/bleed you in under 2 seconds? Thats poison,2 ebolts or an ebolt/FS combo. I know 4/6 is fast but it isn't that fast.

    Oddly enough it's not the greater dragons that annoy me the most. It's all the other pets a tamer can ride.

    They have those 'Get off ride-Use Dismount-Get back on' scripts. If they fail they're instantly riding again, if not they send in their pet. And guess what. They are ARCHERS! Supwise!

    Even last night there were a couple of them in Europa and were ruining the day for a lot of guys.

    Just for starters, town hall report... Scroll down to the second part and you'll see it mentioned. I'm sure WRR still has the sound file somewhere, and there are other mentions, I just can't remember specifics to find them in search.

    Jeremy has also mentioned pet damage balancing several times, but I'm sure you could find those posts yourself without too much trouble.

    Either way, they know. They will act, possibly just to get some peace lol.

    lets see..a GD can take out 2 or 3 people at at time..


    a gank squad at a champ with at least 10 people who know what they are doing can take out a 5 person doing the champ spawn.

    K if ya complaining about pvp and how suddenly your uber suit and skills dont matter to anything then maybe you should just continuing doing the gank squads at the champs...

    seriously..move on....soon pvp will have its over balance again..oo wait it has for years on end..and no one complains about it...gank squards..my bad...

    What??? GD's can take out 2-3 people at a time? I need to go beat mine into being smarter.. against a smart pvp'r he can't even take out 1! He's great as a tank against mobs... but god he's a pain in the arse during pvp.. I've sworn off every using my tamer/greater in pvp again

    I have a question...
    An actual genuine question, with only trace amounts of snark...

    As I understand the case against greater dragons; they are terribly overpowered.
    Does this mean that, as a relative PvP newbie, I could go to Fel with my greater dragon, and do some significant damage?

    Bearing in mind, I'm talking production shards, and not Siege.
    I can see them being a much bigger problem on Siege, almost without a shadow of doubt.

    you'd get kills but you'd probably die a lot.

    the problem is there are good PvP'ers using them so you have like 3 good casting mages with taming and a greater dragon. i saw one group that had 5 greater dragons and all the tamers were good casters.

    Tamers have been geting run over for years. This is the tamers time to shine in pvp they have a strong pet. My suggestion your on a mount they are on foot run or lead the greater dragon off and kill it before its pet balled. You know what the dragons are far less worrysome then the days of 4/6 mages be greatfull we are not going back to that. "spamming lighting while running full speed is" unfair these dragons are just annoying besides its a dragon it should be able to own you. Dragons are meant to be very strong welcome to the RP world.
