The Stat Comparison is a table built to compare all the Dragon stats with the indication if the Dragon is below (↓), close to (≈), or above (↑) the average of each stat - this means that a Dragon can have a below average Max. Speed but an above average Ptich Rate. Simply because a dragon's overall (average) stat is below average does not mean it is a "bad racer"; it is commonly accepted that max speed, pitch rate, turn rate and acceleration are a better indication of a dragon's racing ability.
Please be aware that while the following stats are accurate to the information provided in-game, the information provided in-game is not always accurate to a dragon's actual performance. This applies to racing stats and the firepower stat; the Shot Limit and Base Damage are all fully accurate to a dragon's true stats. The best way to test a dragon's Racing stats is to test it out in Thunder Run Racing and the Battle stats in dummies at The School and Training Grounds. Below is a short list of the most popular or useful dragons for racing and battling, for information purpose only.
Always try your dragons on different tracks. While some are great for closed tracks with lots of curves, other are faster in tracks with long straight sections. As the track you are given in MMO is random, choose a dragon that performs well in most of them. The following list is of popular and fast dragons that you will likely meet in racing.
- Sand Wraith
- Light Fury
- Woolly Howl
There are some dragons that performs extremely well consistently, awarding you gold no matter what ship you encounter, and how many other players are battling together with you. (Other dragons might be added in the future).
- Critical Damage wasn't added as it only doubles the Base Damage, therefore, there's no need to track them down;
- Titan Boost is how much the Titan Stage increases the Base Damage, if a Dragon has 11 as Base Damage and the Titan has 13 of Base Damage, it means the Titan boosted the damage by 2;
- Each stat has its own average and it was all calculated in an Excel file - if one wishes to check the Excel file for further check in on the accuraty, feel free to contact a local SoD Wiki Staff;
- Even if Toothless has an Alpha Stage as oppsoed to a Titan, it still counts as Titan Boost;
- Max. Health has been removed due to the difficulty in collecting said resource, which emans only when we get either all the Level 30 stats or the Level 50 cap stats we can add the Combat stats and the Max. Health stats.
Firepower is a stat found in the Stat List when checking a Dragon in the Dragon List, it's represented by a flame but it's determination is rather odd. The Stat is often assumed to be directly associated with Battle Stats, or as recently discovered, as a Level Multiplier for Combat Stats' Firepower but this Firepower has been in the game ever since its release and also changes accordingly whenever Dragons received a Stat Change.
The Firepower was thought to be connected to Battle due to not being mentioned in Racing, and Combat uses a different Firepower represented by , though it presented some inconsistencies. For example, the Fireworm Queen has 10.1 of Firepower, 6 Shots and 15 Base Damage, the Thunderdrum also has the same except it has 8.3 of Firepower. As previously said, it was recently discoverd this Firepower has a strong coincidence as a Level Multiplier for Combat's FPR, though aside from both the Dramillion and Deathgripper giving 0.1 of difference, one Dragon stands out by giving a big irregularity: the Shivertooth with 7.3 of Firepower and 4.6 of Combat FPR Multiplier.
Due to its vague true determination of what the Firepower could be used for, the Firepower is now neither a Battle or a Combat stat and it's now in its own section until further information regarding its use will put an end to its mystery.
