How powerful are dragons?

Dragons have evolved, so that the mightiest of those flying "today" in Midkemia are far more powerful than those ridden by the Dragon Lords. As Macros said to Tomas at one point if he tried to subdue a great dragon he might be surprised. Midkemian dragons are huge, about the size of a blue whale, when they're fully mature and powerful. The then go down in size to lesser dragon, wyvern (bascially a small dragon without wings), and firedrake (mini-dragon). They're all somewhat intelligent, though the lesser creatures are on a dog or cat level, while as you saw, the great dragons can talk and use magic.
