 I have the choice of getting a Raincutter or Skrill. I want to get the best racer or at least a racer that can stand up against expensive and fast dragons. I don't see many skrill or raincutter racers around, so I don't have a chance to ask them. What's everybody's opinion?

Imo, I'd go with the Skrill. The Skrill is one of the fastest dragons you can get, though it lacks acceleration.

Skrill

Both dragons look ver amazing and I would love to have both (this is hard to decide) but I have a skrill of my own and he races very well. I would recomend him.

They are actually one of the fastest dragons.

My Dragons!

 

 

(You should read the info underneath each one, it's interesting!)

 

1st dragon: Sherbert, Female, Deady Nadder

She's the big sis, the leader of the team. You've never met quite a Nadder like her! She's the oldest, and she knows it too. She keeps all my other dragons in check, while also training them with me. She speaks dragon of course, so she communucates what she knows with the others to make my job as a trainer a lot easier. She's my best friend and my dragon soul. I've never had a more dependable friend. 

 

2nd dragon: Black Cloud, Male, Skrill

Black Cloud is determined to the end. Ever since Yohann started selling skrills, I knew I wanted one, and after I saved for a LONG time, I knew that was the right choice. He's my most powerful and trusted of the team. He was also turning into a promised racer, until a recent search-and-rescue accident, where he lost his tail to one of Drago's forgotten traps. He's recovering, but he may never be able to fly again. 

 

3rd dragon: Pebble Tooth, Male, Whispering Death

Pebble Tooth is a good friend. He's a weird little dude, and he spends most of his time, that's right, in the water. For some reason, my dragon only is in the dirt when he has to be and the rest of the time he's getting the dirt off. He's the nutball of the group, and he thinks it's so funny to tunnel underground then pop up and scare my other dragons. Now I have to teach him to mind...

 

4th dragon: Bean, Male, Gronckle

Now, Gronckles aren't my favorite. I really only got him to complete the dumb quest. (don't tell him that). But I've actually come to love his undying loyalty and his constant need to either snuggle, eat, or take a nap. He reminds me a lot of myself. Natually, he's the glue of the crew, his love and caring for others only getting stronger as days go by. 

 

5th dragon: Kaya, Female, Sand Wraith 

Kaya is the newest recruit. She is quite the character! I didn't know what to expect when I bought her, Sand Wraith's are so rare. But she has grown to love my other dragons as they have grown to love her. She is known as the baby of the team, but she is quickly losing her softness, and she is determined to lose the title of baby. She's determined, and my best racer. She's still young, and has a lot to learn, but she really looks up to Sherbert. I know with Shebert as her mentor, Kaya will be a great dragon!

 

She will probably be my last dragon, unless an amazing species comes out. I'd personally rather have a small team of great dragons than train so many dragons I don't remember their names!

My adorable adopted baby Gronckle Pedro! by catiedragons
 

Name: Una (White Wave)

Species: Titain Wing Tide Glider X Sliquifier

Gender: Female

Personality: Shy

Bio: Out pops this cute little girl! She isn't quite sure of her position with you, and fires her

icey cold water all over you, making you laugh. She then edges closer to you making sure

that you aren't going to harm her. She jumps right into your arms and finds a comfortable

spot sleeping in your hands.

Bio and Dragon by Scoubidous. 

 

Meet Santa:      

And Christmas:  

Credit goes to toothless572

 

Read below it's very interesting! 

Santa (male) and Christmas (female) are brother and sister, and I adopted them from 

Sirenemoon. They are both super sweet, and I decided they should put their amazing personalities to good use! 

Santa is a really steady flyer and is amazing with kids, adults, teenagers, and every other

form of viking you can find. So I talked to Hiccup, and now Santa's job is to teach new

members of the school how to fly a dragon! (He loves his new job and is very good at it!) 

Christmas is so compassionate and loving! You can never catch her in a bad mood, and she

has a talent of overlooking the differences we have and finding the good in all of us. So, I

decided she would best serve our injured vikings as one of the very first therapy dragons!

She spends her time in the infirmary, whether she is playing catch, chasing lights, or

curling up and snoozing.

(She is very good at her job too!) 

This is Acid, my Arizontia.

This is adopted Nighty Fury, Eden.

My Celestial Soul, a new dragon species created by kimbenoso . Thanks!

 

 

 

And this is Spice! He's my special little Terrible Terror. Allthough he is blind, my other

dragons treat him just the same. 

creds to skyleaf

 

And this is Bluestar! She is a little nervous around other vikings because her family was killed

in the dark ages. But I beleive, with a proper reintroduction to vikings, she won't be very

skiddish anymore. Once you get to know her, she is fun and playful.

 

^This is Cobra, my adopted wolf by MidnightMare. He is a strong-hearted, strong-willed,

and strong-souled wolf, which completely contradicts the other side of his personality which is

that he is go-lucky and care-free. He's quite the character.  

 

 

 

 

^Both made by Sleepyraccoon. Thank You!

^This is my amazing legendary Night Fury named Olleander. I won't bore you with the very

long story it took to get her, but she's amazingly fast, dangerous, and commands respect

from all who meet her. Creds to kimbenoso, for the amazing work on her. Her special

talent is this venom-like acid she can inject into her victims like a snake! But she is loyal,

and she will remain that way.

 

And this Nightinggale, a Night Flurence adopted from Wutend Bonfire. Some backround information, they are very happy and over-trusting creatures. They are nocturnal scavengers,

but they are very graceful and are always there when you need them to be. 

 

 

 

 

^This awesome Fluddlebeak was make by GreenCheekedGroot. His name is Bark, mostly

because these things are going fast and I had to thing of a name fast cause I really

wanted him!

    Skrill. The raincutter has

    Skrill. The raincutter has good accelleration, but it's large body size can be a problem.  The skrill is fast, and a good all rounder, not to mention it's considered (generally) one of the best racers before toothless (of course, if you're pro you can win on most dragons of your preference regardless of species). 

     

    So skrill all the way! :D Plus their animations and design is beautiful :3

    Banshee and Catalyst adorably playing together <3 Drawn by toothless572

     

    Drawn by me. Description by the amazing Reiraku.

    A sreech. A howl in the dark. A keening cry in the depths of the night. This was all that could be said about the destruction he left in his wake. A name? He had none. Was it important? A strong opponent. This was what he desired. Perhaps somewhere deep down inside, he simple longed to be stopped. But he yearned, and he fought. For what, it didn't matter. Alone as he had always been, he didn't care what became of those he defeated, only that they ended up dead after his passing. If they could not best him, they did not deserve to live. Even now, he stalked through darkness, tracking his next prey. The blood on his claws would not wash off, but he did not want it to. His soul was a cacophony of chaos, and his body an instrument of death.

    Was it the result of some twisted past? Nay. He enjoyed the killing. He found sport in the shedding of blood. It was he that was twisted, cleaving a path of darkness into the future. He twisted his own past to justify his future. His mother, father, and the rest of the clutch into which he was born had been very caring. As he had grown, he found that, so too, did his resentment of them. When he grew large enough, he attacked his brothers and sisters, tasting their blood for the first time. And he relished the taste. His parents he made quick work of as well. It wasn't enough. He belonged to nothing and no one. He was beholden to none. He was free and he was dangerous.

     

    No dragon was safe from his urges. He took no interest in the lives of others; only in their deaths. In this way he lived, fought, and grew, fighting and killing anything that appeared before him. Growing strong feasting on the thrill of each kill.

     

     

    Storm Chasers are highly energetic speed-loving dragons. They love to swim in fast currents and fly with strong wind of the highlands. Storms are no problem to them. They follow the storm until it subsides, taking any food left from the destruction, which is sometimes from viking villages. Storm Chasers have incredible sensor that they could predict a storm coming and its path. 

    Gender: Male

    Personality: Naturally curious, likes to flick his tongue out when he's unsure of something. Gentle soul, loves belly rubs

    Backstory: While out on a hunt with my dragons for wild forest animals, Catalyst and Banshee was playing as usual, and this time it seems they were play fighting each other. They look like a giant rolling ball of tumbleweed in the distance, if you ignore their playful dragon growls and nips. Shaking my head, I spent the next few hours collecting all the animal feathers and designs I needed, and on the way I caught a rabbit for dinner too. Just as I began walking back to my dragons, I heard a loud, angry growl in the distance that sounded nothing a small animal can make. I quickly rushed to where the sound was coming from, horrified to find that it was in the direction of where I last saw Banshee and Catalyst biting each other's ears (which was kind of cute, and made me stop for a while to watch them). Just as i got to the clearing, I saw Banshee and Catalyst in defensive stance, both growling at a male dragon that's semi-hidden in the bushes with what seem to be a bruised nostrel. They must've rolled into the bushes sometime during their fight and fell onto the dragon's nostrel, waking him up and surprising him! Approaching the dragon slowly, with my hands in front of me, I told my dragons to backdown as I tried to calm him down. After what seems like hours, the male dragon seemed to be calm enough to approach me with curiosity instead. I realized with a start that it was actually a Stormchaser, who seemed to have hurt it's legs somehow as it was slowly limping out of the bush. Carefully taking the shark pieces of rock from his foot (i wonder how he got hurt), the Stormchaser sniffed it's foot and tested it, before happily nudging my hand with it's head. I gave him a good scratch under his chin, and packed everything up ready to move back home when it seemed to follow us and didn't want to leave. Even as i rode Catalyst in the skies, the Stormchaser wasn't far behind, and I ended up adding him into out dragon family, and named him Peach. Design by ScarfyWings

     

    Carnage, the Symbiote Night Fury. One of the rare nightfury species, he serves no one and nothing. Though I suspect he holds a much kinder side...

    Drawn by Kyore. PIxel arts by Wutend Bonfire :D

     

    This fiery night fury can summon and control all types of weather. Storm is from the deep south and will submit to no dragon or human. As she can control whether the skies are safe, even the alphas are afraid of her. Drawn by skypeoplephoenix732

     

    "If you get any of what this skrill is dripping on you, you'll start seeing all kinds of things that aren't there." Toxin, the goofball that doesn't realize everybody knows she's stealing food from the pantry because there's pink goo everywhere she goes. Drawn by Reiraku

     

    Tigger, the speed stinger. Not much for brains, but what he lacks in brains he makes it up with a large stomach. Drawn by Reiraku

    Hong Cha (or Red tea in chinese), the chinese dragon. Drawn by Glacecia

     

    Todachi was only a hatchling when his clan was destroyed and killed by humans in front of his eyes. The only survivor of a clan of forest dwellers, he has to fend for himself since a young age. He's nothing special, but he has a desire to survive which drives him forward.  When a viking found him in a cave while wounded in an aereal fight, Todachi helped the human tend to their wounds even though he still harbors hatered for them, because on the inside he has a gentle heart. The human was forced away the day after, and he still refuses to let anyone inside his cave save for the wounded. You would be lucky to see this him with your very eyes, as his natural camuflage makes him blend perfectly to his surrondings. He says he's not currently interested in any SPAM at the moment. Drawn by Reiraku

     

    Carna, the hybid offspring of the Nightfury and Skrill. Likes to eat smores and snuggles in the fireplace. Only appears occationally when hungry, so no one knows where she is most of the time. Drawn by Reiraku

     

    Adopted from Siren-Spirit

    Morvan, the Dark Dragon. No one knows where he came from, and not many wants to know in fear of being brutally mutilated. The crimson blood on his scales is enough to tell even the blind to not mess with him. He never shows weakness no matter the enemy, but they know that he has some extensive history before he became known and the Dark Dragon. The wings along already hold a much more heavier burden to tell...

     

    Crystalis, the rare white nightfury. She had a warm and kindhearted personality, and loves to collect jewels of all kind. Her scars are a mystery that she never tells. Drawn by skrillfan

     

    Skylar, the nightfury born with the lightning mark. Drawn by Scoubidous

     

    Gender: Male

    Personality: Brave, Serious, Loyal, Strong Fighter

    Special Notes: Scar, Take with care

    Name: Kenshin (do you get the reference? :D)

    Bio: Once known as one of the deadly assassins of the old age, now Kenshin is a recluse on the journey to live a peaceful life. However, he encounters a lot of old enemies and rivals that haven't forgotten of his bloody past, but he will not give up the simple life.

    Skrill is an awesome racer -

    Skrill is an awesome racer - but the turning you will have to get accustomed to (not sure which dragon you race with currently - but I would say the Skrills handle similarly to Thunderdrums, Skrills may turn slightly better)

     

    I just know that I had to get used to racing with a Skrill after using my Nadder for so long - their turns are a lot more smooth compared to the Skrills, and you can turn tighter corners.

     

    In all honesty though, once you are used to racing with a Skrill, you just stop noticing their turns and learn to compensate and perhaps begin to turn earlier than you normally would. (careful not to over do it though and run into a wall XD)

     

    I love my Skrill, Gleam Stryker, to pieces though - he was actually my first dragon, but I tended to use my Nadder to race more when I was a new player due to the turns. ^^ Now its the other way around XD
