    I really do not know much about taming. Ok, I know almost nothing. But I want to buy a tamer mostly to farm, but also to bring out when the enemy has them on the field. I have no intention at this point of doing PvP with the dragon unless there are other dragons on the field.

    So, is this dragon good for PvM?
    Is he good for PvP?

    Stats:
    938 HP,
    125 stam,
    498 Mana,
    651 str,
    125 dex,
    498 Intell

    Resists: 78/87/47/56/74

    Skills All Gms and over except, 94.6 anatomy, 97.8 eval

    This is not currently my dragon, so this is all I know at this point. Can we make a determintation from this information as to his "uber-ness?"

    Its ok Amanda, 498 mana is low some have up to 650, the avergae is 580 I woudl guess.

    That pet is fine but if you like I will giver you a better one when I get on later.

    IMHO for PVM you need high resists, for PVP high Wrestle and Magery.

    I will speak with you in vent when I log!

    one could train him one thinks. Greater dragons have reputation. This thief kills dragons sometimes to gain karma and gold. Is it difficult to kill the greater dragons with melee fighter?

    thinks that that would not work lol.
     
  8. i dont understand

    whats the point of high magery?

    once they can cast flame strike, the only thing more magery does is increase heals, which are pointless

    Not if the dragon is healing itself.

    It's a 4.1 on the pet power calc, actually not bad.

    Mana is low, but the resists are pretty nice.

    It's definitely a keeper for now until you can find one with same or better resists & HP [NO WAY would I go lower], but more mana.
