So I was really excited when I got a shivertooth egg as I wanted this dragon for a long time, mainly beacause of its speed. However, when I tried in TRR, it let me down. It was slower than deadly nadders and groncicles. I'm just wondering if its just me or has anyone else been experiencing this problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

 

P.S. I'm new to the forum so please don't kill me if this is in the wrong place.

It seems like a lot of dragon's speed don't match their stats. The Typhoomerang's stat is something like 9.6, but it a VERY slow flyer. They should definitely fix it.

Eek the Firetamer

Eek is an adventurous viking who has trained many dragons. He has had many adventures and encountered many dragons accross the Archipelago. He is a strategist (because he has needed to rescue friends or dragons numerous times). He has a sense of humor, and is very social. He likes spending his free time at the Training Grounds. He is a skilled fighter, and his weapon of choice is his ice axe. He can take on several Hunters at a time by himself, but on the back of his Triple Stryke, that's another story.

Ballista:

Ballista edit by DuckinaDragon

Ballista is a male Triple Stryke, and is about 3 months old. He has been with Eek ever since he was born. His mother was enslaved by a war cheiftain from accross the sea. Ballista's personality is very similar to that of Sleuther, but more rebellious. He (like his rider) has a sense of humor, and he is very intelligent. He will protect Eek at all costs, and will not hesitate to fight. He is no stranger to combat, as he was once captured and held in dragon fights. This was only briefly, as Eek was captured too, and helped to rescue him. Eek could not ask for a better dragon. If you don't see Eek around Berk or the School, he's probably above the clouds on Ballista's back.

Well, that's not right

This was concerning to me because the Shivertooth is my main racing dragon. I assure you, it has been fast in the past. But I haven't raced in a few months, so I decided to take the Shivertooth and the other top 5 racing dragons, the Flightmare, Sand Wraith, Shockjaw, and Scuttleclaw, as well as the two dragons you mentioned, the Deadly Nadder and Groncicle, through single-player racers in Forbidden Ice just now. And...my results show the Shivertooth is still fast. At least in my game. I don't know what trouble you're having, but my Shivertooth had similar times to the other 4 top racers, and it came in a full second ahead of the Groncicle and a full 4 seconds ahead of the Deadly Nadder.

 

Perhaps you're brushing the walls with your Shivertooth? It is a big dragon and, despite what its written stats say, it isn't the fastest accelerator. The Shivertooth requires precision to manuever through small spaces. If you brush the walls, your dragon automatically slows down and has to re-accelerate, and the Shivertooth is so large that sometimes you can brush the walls without even realizing it.

Maybe that's it

You might have a point, I'll try again and try as hard as i can to not touch the walls. (I'm glad you told me about the slowing down when you touch/brush the walls- I didnt know about it).

 

Thanks
