Ok... I have not tried a dragon..I'll let Aladan answer that question, but I can answer the dragons cant wear armor or use weps, but obviously have inate abilities of their own. Leveling has not been to fast or to slow really, although I am still a low lvl, and I'm sure it takes longer at higher lvls. Xp depends on the lvl of the mob you are fighting compared to yourself. I believe there isn't a 'limit' on lvls. I read it goes into the hundreds I believe. i believe each race can be any class. I have seen the normal kill things or see this person. There are longer more in-depth quests, I am still too low lvl. Ok, Please try to follow this. The muti-classing is easier to use then explain. When you are a certain class, such as a monk, you only get monk xp increasing you monk abilities and the stats that increase by being a monk. Now at any time you can CHANGE classes. You keep all your stats, but you can not use all your monk abilities while you are a cleric for ex. If you go back to being a monk, you get them all back. A reason this is good(these are for ex purposes)say I would like my mage to have more hitpoints. A warrior receives extra hit points with each level gain. I switch over to a warrior, level up 10 levels, and receive larger hit point gains then I would have received while leveling as a mage! When I go back to mage. I get all my abilities back along with the now increased stats. Now, this CAN NOT lead to a super UBER player. What stops someone from being a lvl 50 mage/ lvl 50 cleric/ lvl 50 warrior--first is time. Next, when that person has mage class selected, he/she loses their high level warrior and cleric abilities. The last reason, follow me please, is that those extra levels increase a number called 'adventuring level'. This is the lvl compared to monsters level that gains you the xp. Each lvl is a point, while 10 extra lvls (or so) in the alternate levels also gives you a point. So this person would have to fight something that is like 30 levels above him just to get decent xp! WHEW!
