    I tamed one GD on mugen shard yesterday with following resists

    Physical 85% (max)
    Fire 86% (-4, very close to max 90%)
    Cold 55% (max)
    Poison 60% (max)
    Energy 75% (max)

    The hitpoints wasnt that great (just 684)
    Hits 684 (-314, of max 998)
    Int/Mana 614 (-61, of max 675)
    Str 636 (-77, of max 713)

    I forgot to capture the pre-tame skills.
    Maybe I am too excited at that moment.
    Anyone know how to 'reverse' the skills value and get the pretame value
    (I yet to send the GD for intensive training)

    Current tamed skills
    Wrestling 92.1
    Tactics 89.1
    Resisting Spells 89.2
    Anatomy 20.6
    Magery 109.8
    Eval Int 43.6
    Meditation 68.9

    Meanwhile would like to ask what are the criteria for searching the right keeper?
    This is the criteria follow by the ranks
    1. Hit points
    2. magery skill
    3. resist
    4. wreslting/resist

    I think i manage to get the correct 'formula' on the GD Skills.
    Maybe someone can help to confirm on the formula...

    The formula is (with exception of magery skill always at 0.9 of pretame magery)
    Max skills = Pretame skill x 0.9
    Skill right after tame = Max Skills x 0.8

    So my pretame GD should be with skills:-
    Wrestling 121
    Tactics 117
    Resisting Spells 117
    Magery 120

    Me personally I rate dragons after looking at:


    1) resists -Will be the best determining factor in damage your dragon will take.
    2) hit points - high hps will not matter if the damage it will take will be faster than your healing rate.
    3) skills - wrestle/tacts/resist, High skills are pretty much self explanitory.
    4) magery - magery is really not a skill I will overly concern myself with as most things I fight with mine are high end peerless/champs the magery will not last in an extended fight due to lack of mana (even when med is gm'd) and the dragons primary attack will be its skills.
