Phoenix on the other hand doesn’t really have too much going for it past the stats. The small focus bump doesn’t do anything at EG, as any EG mage most likely has more than 2500 focus and is thus past the point of diminishing return. Secondly, the small “lure” “bump “ isn’t drastic enough to help dps, and certainly doesn’t increase dps by more than dragon does dps. Only exception I can think to this is the caustic Phoenix for melee dps like warriors.

Overall how I usually split the difference is if you want to go for top notch dps, nothing beats the dragon in the game atm, it’s the all around best, but if you are more casual of a player or you prefer support roles or even a hybrid split play style, the Phoenix provides good stats and is a decent pet for support and dps play styles.
I personally prefer DPS mage so I would choose dragon, but both are decent options.


I've heard/read quite a few times that the crit skill bump actually has no noticeable 'umph' if someone already has their crit skill ability maxed. My question though is can more than 1 person use the dragon skills of the same type at the same time?

The initial damage yes, but the dot will depend on whoever has the higher skill level - which is not bad considering the dot is only base damage.

On this note as well, the main damage aspect to the dragon is the initial burst, with the dot being more of a convienent side effect.

From my personal expierence and from what i’ve Read and seen, on mobs of your level or higher it can have a decent effect. It isn’t high enough where that attribute makes it the best pet on its own right, but it is still an aspect worth regarding.
The best aspect of the dragon is the skill, with the dot and crit bump being cool extras.

As I said above though, both pets are good, just in different areas of the mage world.
