The Daily Grind: What is the best MMO dragon of all time?

Let’s throw down today and have an all-out brawl in the comments, shall we? That should keep Bree busy for a few hours at least!

Today’s topic: dragons! No, not those adorable ones you tame, but the ones that you fight (usually with a whole posse of equally deranged adventurers). They’re a staple of MMORPGs and share top billing in D&D, but not all dragons can be the biggest, baddest, and bestest. One has to emerge as Top Dragon, and the question is… which one?

What is the best MMO dragon of all time? Which dragon has the fiercest of presences, the most diabolical of fight mechanics, the wickedest of looks, and the most iconic of personalities? If all MMO dragons entered an arena to go at it… which one would emerge triumphant?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

I mean, this guy has to AT LEAST get honourable mention on style points alone.

That`s a very easy question, absolutely no other dragon stands on the same level of insanity of Kerafyrm the Sleeper! Second place i would put Mordremoth, no sure about third.

Oh forgot Bahamut, he’s surely ahead of Mordremoth and is the second most awesome dragon of all times. ( also Bahamut has one of the best cg’s i’ve ever seen, and that theme song is a fucking masterpiece). Mord stays third, Niddhogg is worth a mention as well.

Deathwing, Nefarion, Ysera, Istaria Dragons, WoW Dragon Whelps, and AQ3D Drickens.
Also the Planar Dragons from Rift and the Elder Dragons from Guild Wars 2.

I’m disappointed with MMO dragons. They really haven’t felt inspiring. Most of them have come off as emo or comic relief. :(

Easily the Dragon who guards the Vault of Night in DDO, Velah

i vote istaria, or horizons for us old folks. where you are the dragon . only mmo where you can play bi-ped hunan types and a dragon dated game though, but was a ton of fun. even lair building and adult hood let you fly

Thank you for mentioning this. Severely outdated and not that good a game, but surprisingly fun especially as a dragon.

Why are Daily Grinds that require me to post screenshots always made in weekends when I’m not at home and don’t have access to them…
