    Swamp Dragon is the preferred mount. If you use an exceptionally crafted Dragon Barding Deed on your swampy you'll get a 20% reduction from physical damage. 10% from non-exceptional, 12% from the Chief Paroxysmus Swamp Dragon.

    How much cost this armor?
    Is there any sense to buy Swamp Dragon if I haven't armor?

    Exceptional deeds made of iron (all ingot types give the same benefits - only difference is color) are around 100k in Luna on Great Lakes.

    If you have a blacksmith, you can craft your own for (I believe) 750 ingots.

    Oh, and a swamp dragon without armor; it's a mount like any others at that point. If you're not going to armor it, I'd get a lesser hiryu (if you have Bushido at 90 or higher) or just any other mount. Although if you're not going to use either a lesser hiryu or a swamp dragon, you may as well get an ethereal mount if your account is old enough, or a Charger of the Fallen if you can afford it.

    Definatly swampy, with armor. For death have an ethy. If you are on origin i can get u a swampy.

    Archery doesnt play into it.

    Lesser hiryu is good if you have a single battle and of course have bushido. I sometimes carry around a hiryu, but swampy is standard.

    I really like lessers in PvP. People under-estimate them severely. If you train them up they can bite for 20 dmg. I use them on my bushy dexers all the time when I dismount.

    They also pack a vicious punch coupled with chain nerve strikes and orc brute hits.

    Two questions about my Swamp Dragon:

    How often should I feed it?
    Should I train it?
     
  8. Feed it initially to get it to bond (feed it then stable it for a week, then feed it again). After that, you never need to feed it.

    Don't train it. You will always be riding it, so there's no reason to train it to fight.

    I always train my pets wrestling and resist to GM. They actually do resist poisons and gives them a bit more of a chance at living if you do get dismounted (Mainly in PvP scenario).

    I have bought a lesser hiryu (I have 0 Taming/Lore). I was interesting how it fights so I dismounted and said "Guard me"/"Kill". It ignored my commands. When I repeated this commands several times it went out of control.

    Is it possible to make a lesser hiryu fight for me without Taming/Lore? (I had hast bought it so it was not bonded)

    I armored a swamp dragon but armor disappiared on the second day. Does it mean I have to buy new armor for it every few days?

    (I was hit by a poison elemental right before armor disappiared).

    Yes, if you hover your cursor over the swamp dragon while it has armor on (dragon barding) it should show you how much durability / damage the armor can take. When it wears out you have to apply using a new deed. The deeds can be insured for 10 gold. If you want to remove the armor you can dbl click a bladed object and target the swamp dragon. However, you should be aware that removing the armor causes it to be destroyed.

    I've never tried a hiryu so I can't offer any insight there.

    I have got 100 bushido.

    p.s. I need 90 bushido to mount a lesser hiryu. Since I was able to mount it I must have got 90+ bushido, right?

    The colored armor has higher resistances (see "Dragon Barding Deed" in UOGuide). Shadow Iron for example adds 40 more resistances over iron for the Swampy. So it's not only more fancy....
    The armor disappears after max amount of damage has been absorbed. If you die less because of the damage absorption the saved insurance might outway the cost for the armor. Paroxysmus' Swampy is a good compromise: Only 12% damage absorption but the armor is unbreakable. You get it from the chief in person (with your Sampire).
