Yet another "My new Dragon" post! :P

    Just got my first Greater Dragon! Sorry y'all must be getting rather bored of these posts but I'm just so excited! [​IMG]

    I'd like to say a bit thanks to Aevaal Thyrr on Europa for taming it for me. I'd spent all day trying to tame one, and tbh I couldn't manage it [​IMG]. Seems my skill stops at taming Cu's (I have 115/115 so can't use lack of skill as an excuse).

    Anyway I think Aevaal saw me struggling and jumped in, and lead tamed one for me (he made it look way too easy, wish I knew his secret hehe).

    So here he is... don't know if I'll be able to resist the temptation in using him before bonded... [​IMG]

    Thanks for checking that [​IMG]

    Where is the calculator out of interest? The one in the sticky doesn't seems to include Greater Dragons yet...

    Take the Physical resist and subtract 100
    So 100-82=18 (Make this .18)
    Now take the hits and devide by the above number..
    So 776/.18= 4311.111 etc

    Hehe, happy to help you buddy:)
  6. I don't think you can ever accurately rate a pet just by its hp and physical resist.

    my opinion of this pet is that it's not too bad. The HP are sub-par, but the STR is VERY high, which makes a large impact on damage output.

    Physical, Cold and poison resist are all good. Energy resist is acceptable. Fire resist is REAL bad. I don't generally keep dragons with fire resist that low, but it's hard to say with the other resists and the phenominal STR.

    It'll train up to about 123.3 wrestling (assuming it's completely untrianed in this screenshot), which is really good.

    114.3 tactics... That's a moderate tactics value, but still helps. All told, you can gain up to 5 dmg per hit from tactics on these dragons. This one will get about 2 or 3 of that damage buff, so I certainly don't scoff at dragons with 114 or so tactics.

    the magic resist skill cap is high, but I don't generally care about that. MR makes sense if you use the pet for pvp or you expect the pet to get cursed a lot.

    The magery is a little below avg, but I don't think that really matters to much.

    What you have with this pet is a high damage pet with some high resists, but really bad fire resist. Be careful around critters taht deal tons of fire damage and you should be ok.

    Thanks for that Sarphus, good info there [​IMG]
    (Yeah, the screenie was taken immediately after taming, with no training done.)

    I was a bit concerned about the FR myself, but like you say, there are some good points which I think kinda balance it out.

    Not the best for sure, but I'm def. keeping it (have started training already hehe).
  8. it's almost max str... that dragon will hit like a truck
