Dragon Training 101








Class: Sharp


Length: 60 feet (average) 


Weight: 900 lbs (average)


Wingspan: 48 feet


Diet: Fish, Sea Slugs, Young Razorwhips (males)




There is no better sight than seeing a fully grown Razorwhip

soar through the skies without a care in the world. As wild as

they are, razorwhips make for one of the most loyal

companions in the Archipelago. It may be hard to bond with

one of these dragons, at first, but with a little try-harding and a

lot of protection, you'll be able to tame yourself your very own

Razorwhip. My name is Jyharri and I will explain the basis of

dragon training, the Changewing.


Somewhat a cross between an armored swordsman and its

horse, the stocky yet powerful Razorwhip is one of the few

dragons that can produce bright fire that can appear either blue

or white. Not only that, they are able to fling their spines just

like the Deadly Nadder or Whispering Death with ease. I've

enjoyed training up all 5 of my Razorwhips because of their

accountability, loyalness to the rider, and much more.


Disclaimer: A majority, but not all information on the Razorwhip can

be summed up from my experience with Razorwhips (raising them,

training, etc), so take these words with a grain of salt.


Step 1: Location


A rare sight in Berk's Archipelago, Razorwhips are more

commonly seen in forests and woodlands rather than out for a

morning flight. However, they are still recoperating from their

near extinction within the last millennia so it takes a stroke of

luck to find a wild one raised by the Wingmaidens of

Wingmaiden Island.


Step 2: Preparations


Like many dragons, the Razorwhip is aggressive when it first

sets it sights on you, maybe even to the point of laceration

unlike the Deadly Nadder or Gronckle. The best way to

approached a fully grown Razorwhip is to slolwy speak to it

whilst holding a pair of sea slugs in each hand as an offering. If

the Razorwhip accepts, then you'll be able to aid in washing out

its armored scales. If not, then don't fret. It normally takes a

few days for the dragons to get used to human presences, and

it takes extreme luck to bond on the first try.


Step 3: Fair Flight


After a week or so for washing out and feeding the Razorwhip,

you'll finally be able to stroke its nose and introduce yourself as

a helpful friend. Once you position yourself on its neck or back,

make sure to lather the spot with your spit, similar to getting a

Deadly Nadder used to riding. There are some spots that are

especially sensitive to the dragon, this is why I recommend this

before flights. Once you are flying, both you and your dragon

must be able to predict what the other is thinking in order to

coordinately fly. This can be done by commands, or by lightly

tapping the Razorwhip in the direction you want to go with your

boot. I have faith that you'll be able to outflank even the most

persistent ships by this point!


Step 4: Combat Training


In comparison to a Deadly Nadder, the trianing process is about

the same. Whenever your dragon does a counter move or block

succesfully, feed it its favorite food right after to encourage it to

hone these skills. I recommend throwing shields into the air for

the Razorwhip to blast to bits - Note: Keep a sturdy shield with

you at all times lest you are in a position to be spiked. I've

found out that providing a gated sharpener for the Razorwhip to

keep its tail sharp will aid greatly in combat and in battlefield



Step 5: Racing


The Razorwhip is a rather tricky dragon to race with, having not

the best responses to turning in the Archipelago. In order to

counteract this issue, use a sturdy pair of boots (metal

recommended) in order to make a sound that tunes the

Razorwhip to turn on time, similar to how once trains a Triple

Stryke. Also, make sure that your dragon is able to flow

through the race tracks first before going out into the

competition - practice always makes perfect. One final note is

to make sure your dragon is lightly hungry before racing,

meaning that there is no excess weight between both dragon

and riders. Feed well after each race, and you'll become best

friends with your dragon!


Extras: Titan Razorwhips


When any dragon becomes a titan, it does becomes twice as

strong and aggressive than its broad wing stage, which is much

more prevalent in a Razorwhip than with most dragons. I

recommend keeping your dragon close to you during the

transformation process in order to keep the bond between you

strong, then later try racing with your drgaon to keep the flow

of biochemical energy stable. It has worked so far with two of

my Razorwhips, Sprint and Azural, so I'm sure it will work for

yours too.

Wowie, I wish Peppermint and I had a bond that good; he's so vain and arrogant, I don't even think I can call him my dragon anymore! Still, something makes him come back to the stables. . .probably for the free food, shelter, and hoard of mirrors. I would've never bothered with a Razorwhip again if Midori hadn't come along and showed me they could be great dragons so maybe I'll use these tips to bond with another Razorwhip!


Aliases: Kas or Kasane

Main Dragon: Papa Moon the Titan Stormcutter

Glad to be of Service

Oof, I can understand a dragon being vain and aggrogant. Hopefully these tips will be of great use to your next Razorwhip, hopefully!
