The baby dragons, drakes and dragons, in my mind would be a good idea if u could make them evolve into the next step higher after killing so much, so much time ext. Also the greater dragons would be nice if they could evolve one higher to either a ancient dragon or a shadow dragon. (Pritty much a black dragon with tadered wings) Also the dificulty would be to get to this highest level would need 120 taming and 120 animal lore.
This would help those who are doing big bosses with dragons, like the stygian dragon boss who can take out a greater dragon without much effort.

No way! This would totally screw over PvP!

They've said they are going through all the old dungeons. I'm curious to see what they do with Destard when it rolls around. I expect different and more difficult dragons. The question is, will any of them be tameable?

Pet evolution and revamped taming has been a long standing wish for many. Sadly its gone unnoticed.

Who says PvP is dead? It isn't.

I do really like the evolution idea - enough with creationism in UO :P - but you really have to factor in the game balance. Remember when the greater dragons came out? ninja tamers not quite ruled pvp but made a huge impact. It took quite a while and many subtle changes for the other templates to catch up. Same goes for PvM - for two years every nerfherder and his brother farmed to no end with their dragons.

Again, I like the idea of creatures evolving and interacting (like the void creatures in ter mur). But when it comes to tameables, you have to be really careful. Maybe one can tame them only in certain evolution levels, before they become to powerful to be commanded by a puny human.

But I understand the want of tamers for a new cool pet. Maybe a mountable, flying 4-slot dragon with slightly less stats than a greater but with one or two cool abilities. How about being unable to use weapons or spells while riding the dragon but instead you get to use its firebreath?!

It would be easily solvable by simply capping the abilities and damage levels of high level pets in PvP only.

That way there could be really high end tamables without upsetting the PvP balance.

Actually, I would sort of like to see a proper dragon rearing system, but not simply something that lets you turn your dragon into an ancient wyrm or something.

Every since I started UO, dragons have always seemed to be one of the core tamer pets (I am speaking as a non-tamer), though there was a period where other pets were favoured.

If they implemented a dragon breeding system, I don't think the end result should be any more powerful than a greater dragon really. But what I think it should offer is customizability of your little wyrmling. So as it grows and you train it, you can choose what sort of resists it develops, whether it gets an ice breath or fire breath, some of the main abilities it gets.

Ideally, you shouldn't be able to create a dragon that is good against everything, but the system should offer the ability to breed a dragon to face almost all threats. That way there's a market for bred dragons that are specialized in dealing with certain things.

But it definitely shouldn't just be piling on the HP and damage. =P

My opinion is simple i agree with the whole lil better tamables for the harder monsters and even though i HATE pvp, there has to be something to make them not made at the whole thing i remember bout the crying over the greater dragons and people fighting with them, i just would drag the dragon away and kill it with my chiv/archer, theres always ways to kill monsters, its the people you can't always beat specially now a days most pvpers run script or cheat engine to make themselves faster, thats one the main reason why ill never return to fighting, i gave up on pvp when green latern left and i had a necro/mage the reason being is the pvpers found a way to loot your insured or blessed items which is totally gay! but to avoid the suffering of complaints from all the pvpers cap them like the one person said VS pvp bc really what your asking is more help from a pvm side! but i also agree with the whole the skill needs to be something ridiculous like 120 taming and lore :)

i agree with you there WolFie, i also think that they should make something like your all saying with the dragons i also think they should make dragon eggs where they hatch into drakes, you can get the egg from the Hardest dragon in the game once its dead, it hatches into a drake then the drake grown into a dragon and then greater dragon etc.. you get what i mean, that would be good BUT i dont think any higher that a greater deagon maybe if they brought out a rare hatch where the dragon grows one harder than a greater but i mean like RARE and maybe some different colours of course not bright pink and stuff i mean jsut like the cu colours and things, maybe this would work but maybe it wouldnt who knows?
