I still have no idea why this pet is so popular. This is one of the least impressive dragons available. The Ancient Blessing heal available in the second slot is not as good as Cauterize, Tranquility or Emerald Dream. If you don't want to take the heal, you are then left with conflicting weather options with Arcane Storm to Moonfire/Starfall. The slot 1 basic attacks aren't even buffed by the weather. If there is a worse dragon in game, please show me.
This trainer is extremely soloable with a flayer youngling. The critter obviously has no chance against the flayer (start with Reflect and then Rampage). By the time the elemental comes out and whirlpool is about to hit, cast reflect again. The water damage of whirlpool reflects and is strong against the elemental and will kill him. Same goes for geyser with the fish pet. It's awesome. Or swap in a lowbie to get the last killing blow for a sweet 3100xp.
Just use a rabbit. It's not sexy. It's not cute. But a fast rabbit is one of the most important pets in any pet collector's arsenal. Against the elemental, a Rabbit is absolutely amazing. You avoid all of his stuns and big attacks while slowly wearing him down. Elemental damage is also naturally weak against critters. Sometimes people just get too cute for their own good.
