    They can start off wild & neutral, but defensive. You could tame one & fly on it for 2x sprinting speed. A Chinese dragon for the mountains, a Serpent for the seas, an ice breathing blue dragon in snowy biomes, a fire breathing dragon near big pools of lava. They'll live in caves, but aggressive supersized ones will live in abandoned forts surrounded in treasure. They eat cows & horses & pandas & dolphins.

    It would be awesome if you could hatch the ender dragon egg that you get from killing the ender dragon. Right now the egg is pretty much useless except for decoration, aka Grian's lamp...

    DARKELFX has a point, but it can easily be fixed make the dragons neutral mobs, but make them protective of their nests, make them pack animals but the alpha is different from the others like the alpha can be bigger and have horns but the others are slightly smaller and do not have horns, make the chances of taming an alpha extremely hard, add a potion that makes you undetectable to dragons and add a different armour set that can be crafted from different dragon type skins

    that is a very good idea, i want a pet dragon so bad

    good idea yet it could be a little overpowered.

    I disagree with the elemental part. The dragon egg should just hatch into an ender dragon. I support the idea of pet dragons however this can potentially be overpowered. I have some ideas on how to balance this.
    Obviously the pet dragon would have to be made much weaker than the ender dragon and should probably be smaller, but they could also make the egg difficult to hatch to make the process of owning a dragon harder. Maybe the dragon will start out hostile when it first hatches and you must feed it something (maybe something found in the end city?) to tame it. The dragon should also be difficult to keep tamed. They could give the dragon a "happiness" scale that goes up by one every time you feed it. If its happiness is 0 the dragon will be hostile and not tamed, if its happiness is 1 the dragon will be passive towards the player, if its happiness is 2 the dragon can be enabled to follow the player like a wolf, if its happiness is 3 the dragon will attack mobs for the player like a wolf, and if its happiness is 4 it will let you ride it, if a saddle is equipped. Its happiness can be constantly diminishing over time, maybe go down one point every day? So, you must constantly feed it so that it remains tamed. If it reaches 0 then you will have to retame it. When flying on the dragon, it should have a stamina bar that determines how long you can stay in the air. When it runs out the dragon falls to the ground and you will be able to fly again once the stamina bar replenishes. Also I feel that the dragon shouldnt be particularly fast when walking on the land so that the purpose of a horse is not defeated.

    I have been looking for something like this for some time and finally I have found one with some momentum. I seriously hope this is added. The already existent ender dragon model with perhaps some design tweaks other than just the skin and bam! Pet dragons. It would be even better if you could fly using a couple of the larger ones.

    (Part 1) Actually ryan riccio, I think instead of feeding it all the time to keep it tamed, maybe a very large hunger bar may be a good idea. The dragon is ravenous and you have to feed it large amounts of food (meat only) to keep it up to strength. If the hunger bar reaches 0 after a couple of days the dragon will no longer be tamed. If hunger is below half, the dragon will be disobedient and constantly wander off to kill and eat an animal to try and keep it’s hunger bar up. Of course, if you just let it eat and don’t feed it yourself after say, 5 days, the dragon will no longer feel attached to you and will no longer be tamed. Attack damage, healing rate, damage resistance and speed may depend greatly upon the hunger bar. So to keep it at full strength you have to feed it almost constantly. If the dragon is big enough, then you may ride it so long as it is tamed, you can ride medium-ish dragons but they cannot fly as you wheigh them down too much, only larger dragons can carry you.

    (Part 2) Wild dragons can be found but cannot be tamed, you must hatch an egg that you get by stealing from a wild adult dragon (either by killing it or taking the egg while the parent is hunting as the hunger mechanic is still there in wild dragons) then you must raise the dragon. It’s size and stats are dependent on it’s XP level, 1 being infant and 10 full grown. Of course the adult size may vary from species to species but when the dragon’s body is about the size of a horse’s then you may ride it like a horse. Once it is nearly full grown you may fly on it. Back to the hunger mechanic as it is a big part of how the dragon works. Their hunger bar gets bigger as they do for each level, they can get a tiny amount of XP from eating but it it is almost insignificant, you would have to have some serious patience and food supply to grow them by feeding them. They take halved XP from bottles so you will need a lot of them to do much. The main way of getting XP is from killing monsters. The rate at which the hunger bar decreases is reduced slightly as the dragon grows and the max hunger points increase making the dragon a little more manageable. It will kill thins for fun when young even if it is not hungry. It will require most of your attention to keep it fed properly and to level it up. Flying eats through hunger points very quickly and so is very inefficient if fast.

    I think this is a great idea! 100% agreement, Mojang, plz do this! :3

    And it would be cool if you could fly with them. I imagine it would be a faster way of travel than horses or walking

    Always wanted dragons

    Great idea but I will low to have dragons spawn from dragon eggs . That will be obtained By killing dragon boos. Probably ender dragon than to have like dragon DNA around the real world that will mix with ender eg and give him an opportunity to hatch.

    Ender dragon should drop some saddle like thing to ride dragons

  • Avatar

    have the dragon drip a shub of horn from the dragon every 15 minutes if you have tamed it. then you can make dragons into armor and weapons. the armor and weapon must have the same color as the shub. and you can ride it and you can let them mate with each other and there are other species.

    PLEASE!! Caves that hold sleeping dragons you can tame! 

    ADD TAMING SYSTEM!! WHOOT! You can hire a pet whisper and buy a dragon egg to raise your own!

    I'd love to see this happen in Minecraft!  Maybe attaching a saddle would give the ability to ride them and glide through the sky!

    They need to be extremely rare. Some would have to have their own biomes. Taming would have to be hard too. Maybe only baby dragons, so you'd have to steal the egg, or get the mother to give you an egg. For attacking, you should have an advanced dragon saddle, which is harder to find, but will allow you to make them use their element. They should have them similar to fire balls, though if you charge you could have a five second beam attack. The only ones I can think of working well are fire, ice, wind and ender.

    Seeing as how the dragon egg has no purpose at all, this just seems like an obvious use for it. Although it would make sense to get more of them in case the first dragon dies.

    I would love to also see a frost dragon, which will be found in snow biomes or cold climate biomes. Also I would love to see this mod due to Minecraft not having any flyable pets that can be tamed
