    i know this has been said four thousands times and feel free to flame away..

    but super dragons on siege perilous are completely out of control.. there are templates out there that can instantly kill players only because they have an amazing dragon sitting right next to them.. mainly the archer healer tamer

    dismount + all kill realisticly does about 110 damage to a subpar resist character.

    considering its siege not everyone runs 70+ in all resists and when a dragon hits for 42+ per bite (without any spells) and a dismount does 35+ with a spell proc it can easily kill a low str char.

    lets say the dragon casts spells as well or even fireballs.. a 42 bite (with bleed) and a (lets say a low damage fireball) 50 is enough to kill most characters running 80 str for other stats. That is 92 collective damage without spells and without the tamer doing anything at all.. let alone dismounting for 40+ damage..

    flame away but srsly.. its getting crazy.

    You don't run into a lot of dragons outside the luna guardhugging zone.

    Greater dragons were a huge mistake on *every* shard, not just Siege. Tamers already had access to very powerful pet combinations. There was absolutely no reason to let the Greaters be tameable.

    I'm expecting them to roll out tameable Balrons next.

    I except them to roll out tameable shadow wyverns...and maybe ancient dragons. /sarcasm

    I'm a tamer (peacer-tamer)...i admitt..when you have to battle a archer/tamer with a greater...there's very little chance you'll survive...unless you're a fast runner LOL.

    Makes me wonder how many skill they're trying to fit in 720 points...
    120 taming , 120 lore , 115-120 archery , 115-120 tactics...healing...then some skill that allows you to recall.


    I admitt there might be a problem regarding greaters in PvP...

    But i think it's fine in PvM tho..

    There's no way to allow it in PvM while not allowing it in PvP. Even in PvM, tamers are very powerful without Greater Dragons.

    I think the Greaters were a great addition...as prey. They are fun to hunt. Regular old dragons die too easily. Having them as tameables was a huge, huge mistake.

    I've *never* called for nerfs, but this is one time I am going to say they should make a change. Tameable Greater Dragons were a huge mistake.

    i agree completely with this guy

    SIEGE DOES NOT NEED SUPER DRAGONS.

    It also doesnt need guardzones, those have become a problem too.

    Siege doesn't need arties or insurance...if they get rid of that..then a lot of people would come back to play UO the way it used to be.

    arties are so so, but insurance is good as far as dexxers go.. mages can use just about anything and be effective but a dexxer is nothing without a powerful weapon in their hand.

    fyi by insurance ( i mean your personal siege bless *one item* )

    in order to remove siege bless system youd have to completely revamp
