I rock both depending on which boss and how many people are there. If I need to play a pure dps role, I use dragon. It's by far the best dps pet for yourself. I use Phoenix a lot because it helps the clans dps overall so it's technically doing more damage if you think about it because of the debuff. Seed also technically does more damage if you have a lot of melee around you. If you're in a highly contested server like mine used to be, dragons your best best no matter what class you are. It can get tricky if you're a caster and there's no one with Phoenix's but drags best single dps by far.
^This about sums it up; rough overveiw:
If it's not a competitive server and you have a lot of melees in your clan: seed,
If caster wanting extra lure: pheonix,
Tanks also like phoenices,
If none of the above or just in doubt: dragon
But some people have particular preferences based on build, so it depends.
When in doubt pick the one that looks best with your fash/mount (kidding)mostly
