Here's my two copper on the matter: I have seriously considered making a return to Wurm since dragons started spawning again. However, after reading forum posts like this, I am glad that I held off on my decision. Imagine how frustrating it would be to sail to the other side of the server to fight a dragon, possibly dying once or twice, and losing skills in the process, only to find out you don't get a title, and you don't even have enough hide to make a single glove. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy hunting for the mere thrill of the hunt as much as anyone. When I played Wurm, I would kill everything on my continent that moved two or three times a day. Being a Fo priest, it didn't matter to me if it was a champion, I could just run off and heal if I had to. But dragons aren't mere champion creatures. They are uniques. Roman and I tried to get a party together to slay a unique back when I played, an Avatar of Magranon in the Southern Steppe on Celebration. Even after making forum posts, and spamming Freedom chat, for a couple of days, the most players we could gather was about five or six. Maybe Wurm's population is temporarily boosted now after advertising for Xanadu, but it's really not much higher than it was when I left. Now I see 1000 players on at a time, whereas it was 800-900 before. Most of those players are going to be on Xanadu. So lets say I go through the ordeal of getting a party of 20-30 fighters on Celebration, which would be rather difficult I imagine. Even then, I will likely not get a title, and not get enough hide to make a glove. That's a pretty raw deal for those of us doing the killing if only the same 1-2 people who have kept dragons penned for years are going to have dragon armor afterward. I can't honestly imagine being able to get hunting parties together to successfully slay dragons over 300 times. Like a previous poster said, that would take years. And a year from now, I don't expect it to be possible to even get a large enough party together to slay a dragon. This Xanadu rush will only last so long. What do I think the devs should do about dragons? Well, for one, they probably need to be made a lot weaker, because it's just too hard to get 40 players together to kill a dragon in this game. A lot of the time you don't even have that many players on a given server. As I am posting this there are 32 players on Celebration. Half of those are probably priest alts with no fighting skill. Also, dragons need to drop enough hide to at least make a glove or boot. I can make a rare glove off a single rare cloth square. I should be able to make at least a common low ql glove off a drake hide.
