    It's very nice, but I think phys can be 90, not 85. Not much of a difference really though. Great HP, good magery, nice wrestle. I'd never look for another one if I had that one.

    Very, very nice drag. If I could tweak anything, it would be more strength, but that is an absolute keeper in any book. Congrats.

    Hrm wonder why i had 90 stuck in my head. My memory is just awful... :)
     
  6. Errmmm... not a very good dragon at all. Looks bad to me... very bad. I would do you the favor of taking it off your hands, if you wouldn't mind transferring it to LS. Bad dragon... very bad.

    Pet Power Calculator calls him a 4.5 (4.6 when fully trained). He's a beast. Very nicely done.

    Dibs if he shows up for sell on Atlantic. :D

    Thank you very much.

    Its the fourth greater Dragon i train up and i have to say this is the best one at all. You dont have to watch its HP when its fighting even when its fighting champions or champion spawns. Dont know if it will work good in pvp, but i will try too, when it is completly trained.

    :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Is it worth the 750k being asked for it? To be honest, I'm too new to the profession to know...la

    If you're too lazy or don't know a tamer to help get you one... or 750k is chump change. It's not a bad GD. Pretty good wrestle/magery, mediocre tactics though.

    I am lazy, lol.

    I will eventually get one myself, but want one that i can use while i'm still training...la

    For doing Peerless and such... or champion spawns it might suck due to low resists which means a lot more healing...

    But I dunno how the market is for pets on Siege and how easy it is to farm gold. But then again you just steal everything, just steal the GD :thumbsup:

    Actually, i just found that even with my current jewelry, I can't control the beast to even get it into the stable. Oh well...la

    For 99% control you need 110/110 I believe. I never had issues w/that skill set.

    Dunno what it's worth on Siege, but on Atlantic, I've seen 4.2s sell for 75 mil. On the other hand, I've bought a trained 4.1 for 3 mil. Regardless, a 4.6 + the right buyer, you'd be talking quite a chunk of money.

    nice thing nowadays, let it be transfered. recall to a stable, log out and back in. This works great for some more pain in the but pets.
     
  18. Where is this calculator that gives the 4.2's and such?

    That seems very high. The OP's dragon is definitely worth tens of millions, but 75mil for a 4.2 is slightly insane.

    Note: I said I bought a 4.1 for 3 mil. Catch that? It all depends on who you sell it to. I have a guild mate, ASHLEY, who did sell a 4.2 for 75 mil. Want to ask him about it, let me know. Personally, I stick with the 3-5 mil range.
     
  22. At its very best, a 4.2 could be worth tens of millions of gp, or could be worthless (to me), depending on WHICH of its stats provide the bulk of the high score.

    That's why I've always seen the Pet Power Calculator as a sort of "ballpark" at best - too much of what makes each type of pet great isn't fully accounted for in the generalized formula used.

    No, I believe you. It just seems high to me. I mean, there's no question that a good greater is worth a bunch -- it's the most important "item" to a tamer (well a tamer that relies on a greater anyway), and a 4.2 is definitely a "good" dragon (mine's only a 4.0)...just saying that 75 mil seems like a lot of money for anything less than a "stellar" greater.

    I saw the craziest dragon the other day. Another guild mate, Ashe (aka Seraph Montaire), tamed a 4.8. o_O The thing is a monster. He was already offered 200 mil for it untrained (wanna talk about pricey, lol).

    I see what you're saying, though. I wouldn't have paid 75 mil either. I gave the 4.1 I bought to my wife (I paid 3 mil for it), and last night it beat ASHLEY's (guy who sold the 75 mil dragon) prize dragon. Just depends on how desperate the buyer is, I 'spose.

    A 4.8? Yeah, that's probably worth 200 mil. ;) I didn't know 4.8s actually existed. That's got to be like the best greater in UO, or pretty close to it.

    Hehe, Cal was the guy who tamed the 4.8. He's earned half, I think.
