So using the stats from the School of Dragons wiki, I thought it would be interesting to calculate which dragons have the matematically optimal DPS (Damage Per Second). Below is a full list of every dragon (including Titans) that you can use for Battle Events, ranked. (The number is the approximate amount of points of damage the dragon will average every second.)

 

This list does factor in criticals (both the likelyhood of them and the damage boost they give) as well as fire rate, but it ignores shot limit and long-term recharge speed, as well as range. So it will be way more relevant to people who like to "snipe" the ship from the recharge points rather than fight it traditionally.

 

You'll notice that many of the best dragons for battles (Scauldron, Prickleboggle, Screaming Death) are towards the lower end of this list - that's because in practise, shot limit and recharge time have a huge impact on how much time you can actually spend damaging the ship. I intentionally didn't factor in these things because they've been pretty well established just by people finding the "best" dragons, as well as the fact that the math is much less obvious to calculate there.

 

tl;dr - This is basically how much damage a dragon can do per second if it stayed within range of both its target and the spawn point, so it's somewhat hypothetical.

 

Here's the actual list:

  • 57.75 - Titan Speed Stinger
  • 52.5 - Speed Stinger
  • 34.5 - Moldruffle
  • 29.33 - Shovelhelm
  • 25 - Titan Skrill

  • 20.44 - Titan Gronckle, Smothering Smokebreath
  • 20.4 - Titan Woolly Howl
  • 20.3 - Snafflefang
  • 20.2588 - Toothless
  • 20 - Flame Whipper, Hotburple

  • 19.5 - Titan Crimson Goregutter

  • 15.99 - Hobblegrunt
  • 15.82 - Titan Razorwhip, Sentinel
  • 15.75 - Deathgripper, Titan Flightmare, Hobgobbler, Smitten Hobgobbler, Titan Triple Stryke
  • 15.5375 - Titan Boneknapper

  • 10.4166 - Shockjaw
  • 10.1538 - Titan Whispering Death
  • 9.23 - Whispering Death
  • 9.04 - Prickleboggle

I did a bit of rounding where necessary. If you think there's a mistake (which could be either a miscalculation on my part or an error on the wiki) feel free to point it out, but it seems to line up somewhat logically. I did put it together rather hastily.

 

Hope someone out there finds this interesting/useful!

wow

that's really cool, and very useful, it's also interesting to see that at the top of the list aren't the most "OP" dragons like Toothless and Light Fury,

it's also interesting to see that even the Gronckle is above the Light Fury (okay, maybe that's only interesting to me since the gronckle is often seen as less cool than the other dragons in most of the canon movies) coughcough I love the Gronckle, give it the recognition it deserves DreamWorks coughcough

I am terrible at math, so I can't even begin to imagine how you calculated all of this, so thank you!

Dragons I own and love as if they were my children (Now in all their Hidden World Glory):

(I didn't plan on having this many dragons lmao, so here's the short list and below that is the detailed one if you feel like it. The dragons are the last part of the signature)

Grandcanyon - Male Sandwraith

Firebringer - Female Monstrous Nightmare

Iceberg - Male Groncicle

Grimmer - Female Whispering Death

Shockjaw - Male Skrill

Seafoam - Male Scauldron

Swampdiver - Female Mudraker

Torchnight - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Ironclaw - Female Armorwing

Acidrain - Female Flame Whipper

Goldwing - Female Razorwhip

Sirencall - Male Deathsong

Shiverbeast - Female Stormcutter

Oceaneyes - Female Raincutter

Bonfire - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Bass & Wood - Male Hideous Zippleback

Pinkspark - Female Singetail

Lonquimay - Male Eruptodon

Gildfang - Male Thunderdrum

Solar - Female Skrill

Serpentide - Female Grapple Grounder

Frostsky - Male Shivertooth

Stingbark - Male Triple Stryke

Nibble - Male Hobblegrunt

Moonstone - Female Gronckle (Moonrock in game cause it didnt let me call her Moonstone)

 

Grandcanyon - Male Sand Wraith

Hidden World:

The first dragon that Parakeet owned, since is the one she helped escape from the Hunters. Basically the Dad Friend of the Dragons, endless pacience and loyalty. Loves to bury himself in sand, and often runs around in two legs

 

Firebringer - Female Monstrous Nightmare

Hidden World:

(they did you dirty girl)

Not the brightest Monstrous Nightmare in the bunch, but she tries, she is the first dragon Parakeet ever trained since hatched, she acts like an annoying big sister and likes to bite a lot, an habit that she got from when she was a baby, and Parakeet never corrected. She also saves Parakeet from falling a lot

 

Iceberg - Male Groncicle

Hidden World:

Enjoys Berks climate, doesnt particularly enjoy Firebringer's attention, likes to chill (hehe) with Parakeet rather than do flips in the air, prefers islands with snow, and is a picky adventurer. If dragons can eyeroll, he's doing it all the time. He just doesn't have the patience to deal with his new trainer but still does, cause he appreciates the help she offered him

 

Grimmer - Female Whispering Death

Hidden World:

When Valka gave Parakeet a Whispering Death egg, she wasnt very sure to be able to train her properly, since Whispering Deaths are terrifying. Now she thinks her Nightmare Eyes are endearing and even climbs into her mouth to show how gentle she can be. Although Grimmer is prone to jealousy she has a soft spot for Seafoam, whom, alongside Parakeet, she saved from a sinking Outcast ship as an egg

 

Shockjaw - Male Skrill

Hidden World:

A very hard to read guy, Parakeet isnt sure of his personality, since he doesnt seem to show any, even tho he got him as an egg. He loves to fly and do tricks, but outside it, he's a mystery. If there's anything Parakeet learned from him, is that he is competitive, and enjoys racing, so Shockjaw is her main go to dragon from when she wants to race

 

Seafoam - Male Scauldron

Hidden World:

He likes to spit his boiling hot water at people when he's happy. Look out. Parakeet has her shield in hand at all times because of this. He's learning to just create bubbles, but it's a work in progress. Considers Grimmer his mom, mostly because she doesn't let other dragons aproach him much

 

Swampdiver - Female Mudraker

Hidden World:

Loves to swim around, with all of her family members, and sleep on her trainer's chest (wich was cute when she was small...) she probably believes Parakeet is another small dragon since she always tries to drag her into the water and not let her go. That or she's trying to drown her... Let's hope for the first one

 

Torchnight - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Hidden World:

(look how they massacred my boy)

Altho not the first Monstrous Nightmare she trained, Torchnight prooved to be a very hard case to work with, since the dragon would just not listen to her and go off to his own business, often hitting her with his tail without realizing. The only command he seems to understand on land is when Parakeet hits her chest to call him, wich is when he just launches himself towards her. It was cute when he was younger and it worked, now it's coming back to haunt her and pin her to the ground 

 

Ironclaw - Female Armorwing

Hidden World:

Because of the abuse of the Hunters, Ironclaw is very shy and defensive, but with care and the other dragons help she's coming to be a very curious girl. She loves to watch Parakeet work and will often try to take her helmet off to put into her armor

 

Acidrain - Female Flame Whipper

Hidden World:

A mischievious prankster who loves to play hide and seek with her trainer, she always cheats by hiding in places Parakeet can't access on her own. Likes to surprise and scare dragons and people alike, as well as sleep on the job. Loses her tail all the time whenever she gets scared

 

Goldwing - Female Razorwhip

Hidden World:

Responsible and serious, almost doesnt like to play, only when she's sure Parakeet is done with any quests she has, talk about the mom of the group. Rarely plays with the other dragons, gets along the best with Grandcanyon, silently judges the rest, come on girl, you gotta have more fun.

 

Sirencall - Male Death Song

Hidden World:

A sweet, sweet boy. Playful and kind, like a little brother for the rest of the dragons, also a little prankster, he likes to sing to lure other dragons, and then just flies around with a flock of dragons behind him. Kind of hard to explain to other trainers that he's a bit excentric, to not say otherwise. If fed up Parakeet will start to sing real loud to shut him up, wich  offends him but succesfully gets the point across

 

Shiverbeast - Female Stormcutter

Hidden World:

Surprisingly gets scared of storms, she can't fly through one, Parakeet learned this the hard way, loves to swim and "fly" underwater, a great explorer of the great seas. Well, the sea during storms is scary, perhaps that's the reason. Rather small for her breed, but she's also young, so it's to be expected, she eats as much as the others after all

 

Oceaneyes - Female Raincutter

 

Hidden World:

Like most Raincutters, Oceaneyes loves to fly through rain (looking at you Shiverbeast), and do tricks, the only problem is that in the rain she becomes more slick and it gets hard to get a good grip on her, so no tricks allowed until we get a saddle for you girl, she gets moody if the weather isn't optimal for her, if there's high winds, or too much sun she rather sleep. Loves to fly off in the morning dew, and Parakeet would love to join her, if she was a morning gal. "Also, hehe, duck feet" Parakeet, probably

 

Bonfire - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Hidden World:

(oh god why)

Much younger than the other Monstrous Nightmare, he is like the spoiled little brother. A master at playing victim, likes to sleep on top of Firebringer and Torchnight, even when neither of them like it most of the time he gets his way. Likes adventuring but gets scared really easily, so Parakeet can't fly with him through the night. When he lights himself on fire his flames are weaker than most other Nightmares, Parakeet still doesnt understand why. His smaller size, once tought by Parakeet to be because he was younger, is actually due to him being a runt, same reason why his flames are weaker

 

Bass & Wood - Male Hideous Zippleback

Hidden World:

Bass is the gas, Wood is the spark, they hate each other and are constantly snapping and trying to bite the other, Parakeet has to pet both at the same time if she wants to have peace. They barely get anything done, including flying, except when they're practicing with Astrid and Parakeet, that's the only time they'll work together

 

Pinkspark - Female Singetail

Hidden World:

She's more wild than trained, absolutely refuses to get a saddle on her, so Parakeet has given up on that. Sometimes sleeps in the stables, sometimes flies away for entire weeks before coming back to Parakeet, needless to say she was terrified at first and didnt sleep right until she knew Pinkspark was safe. Equal times playful and serious, gets reasonably along with the other dragons.

 

Lonquimay - Male Eruptodon

Hidden World:

He likes napping more than he does anything else, and Parakeet can relate to that. He doesnt often do anything else other than sleeping or eating, but Parakeet likes to fly around with him when he feels like it, cause she feels high and mighty on top of the dragon. Other than that, she also enjoys napping with him or just reading some books while resting alongside him.

 

Gildfang - Male Thunderdrum

Hidden World:

Stubborn like any Thunderdrum, Gildfang likes to submerge himself underwater when he doesnt feel like listening to his trainer, prefers to travel through water, and is faster that way. When traveling underwater his higliths become more prominent and help him see around especially at night or at very deep level wich is why Parakeet allows him to keep going deeper underwater (even tho its terrifying). Gets rather well with the other dragons, especially Seafoam and Shiverbeast, whom are his water loving buddies. 

 

Solar - Female Skrill

Hidden World:

Miss new addition to the family, she knows she's perfect and isn't shy to show off, kinda makes Shockjaw jealous, no matter how hard Parakeet tries to show both of them the same amount of love. She is friendlier than Shockjaw so most vikings prefer to deal with her rather than the other Skrill, but one thing that she can't surpass Shockjaw in is racing. But she is a sore loser so don't tell her that

 

Serpentide - Female Grapple Grounder

Hidden World:

Parakeet didn't know about the existence of this dragon, so when she got a Grapple Grounder egg she was really excited, but after reading a bit about them she became more and more doubtful about raising one, thankfully after hatching Serpentide dispelled all fears with her calm personality, one that would only turn stubborn during battle tactics, where the only way you can get her to back down is some good ol fashioned dragon nip to calm her down.

 

Frostsky - Male Shivertooth

Hidden World:

Surprisingly a mature fellow, not as playful as some Shivertooths are, or so Parakeet thought, until she found him and Firebringer playing pranks on a very tired Iceberg, aparently he is more of a play pranks in teams kind of guy, so she and Frostsky often go to the twins to play some good and non malicious pranks to any Berk residents.

 

Stingbark - Male Triple Stryke

Hidden World:

Stingbark definetly has taken a like to Sleuther, Dagur's Triple Stryke, so Parakeet has definetly (and kind of against her own wishes) gone to Dagur to train Stingbark, and altho they both differ in more than a variety of different stances Parakeet does listen to some of Dagur's advice (but she will never admit to it). Stingbark is civil and calm but when paired with Sleuther and his Rider he can get rather into it, Parakeet can say for sure that the days she's trained Stingbark are the days she's felt the most tired afterwards.

 

Nibble - Male Hobblegrunt

Hidden World:

Altho he started being incredibly iperactive as a child, but growing up he calmed down, even to the point of getting lazy, wich Parakeet doesn't appreciate because she loved playing with baby Nibble and now hes like a teenager whos annoyed at his guardian, definetly still likes to set eels on fire (wich Sirencall later eats... I guess the system works for them)

 

Moonstone - Female Gronckle

Hidden World:

Mom Friend, cares for the dragons and definetly enjoys the company of baby dragons specially. Treats Parakeet like another baby because.... well Parakeet. Loves hanging out with Meatlug and Fishlegs (and Fishmeat) and Parakeet has definetly have long chats with Fishlegs about Gronckles.

Formula

If your curious, the formula I used was:

 

Calculate average Damage Per Shot:

((Damage x Critical Chance) + (Damage x 100))/ 100

 

Factor in fire rate:

Damage Per Shot / Fire Rate

 

And then it spits out the number, which is helpful. To calculate a more helpful and practical value that accounts for shot limit and such like is much harder, because then you need to compensate for however long the dragon takes to fly back to the spawn point, and... it just gets too messy. XD

 

What this does tell me, though, is that people who are trying to snipe the ship from afar should really be using Moldruffles. They only have three shots, but do absurd damage.

go by this

even though battle events are calculated by the number of shots you get off, go by this it makes the ship die.

A wild outcast has appeared!

To calculat the DPS, it's ((1+(CriticalDamageChance/100))*Damage)/Cooldown, from the list you've given, some seem to be correct (Armorwing and Goregutter), others aren't (Titan Goregutter and Titan Deadly Nadder) to name a few - I can add the Damage Per Second to the Wiki if such is indeed useful with the proper results. ^^

 

I should also point out that all the Stats are directly ripped from the Game's assets and properly calculated.

Yes please!

I did this in somewhat of a hurry, so I'm not surprised if a few are a bit off. I did double-check the ones that initially felt off, though.

 

And I think it probably would be a useful stat to have on the wiki, seeing as it's probably not to hard to compute in a excel sheet or something (as opposed to doing the whole thing by hand like the bright spark that is me decided to do XD).
