Dragons are a primary species in War Dragons. See Master List of Dragons
Typically dragons are four-legged creatures with four claws on each foot and a pair of giant wings. Their appendages are typically scaly; the wings are batlike and allow most dragons to be able to fly. Dragons usually also have long tails for aerial balance, and horns on their head that they could possibly use as terrestrial weapons (however, dragons are almost always in flight in-game). Certain dragons lack some of these basic parts, or even have extra. They come in a variety of colors.
Most dragons will shoot fire, though some will shoot some other sort of breath weapon. Their claws and wings would probably deal serious full-force damage if they were at any point on ground, but they only fight in the air. There are several different moves that dragons can use in battle.
A compendium of the moves that dragons can perform can be found here.
Sorting Dragons Edit
Dragons have three types of classifications that can set them apart.
Dragons can be classified by what fighting class they are in. This consists of three different class types.
Sorcerer dragons are magic-based and can deal serious damage when used properly. Their fire is click-and-drag activated, and will shoot multiple fireballs at a time.
The first Sorcerer dragon you will get is Leviathan.
Hunter dragons are speed-based and rely on stealth and quick attacks to deal blows of energy fast enough to create mass harm in short amounts of time. Their fire has to be tapped onto a target; holding your finger down on the screen will not work, so you will have to keep tapping defenses at a fast pace to deliver lots of damage. These dragons also have a flame bar. Each time you tap the flame bar decreases. However, it will recharge over time. Here's a trick: try to put three fingers down at a time while using a Hunter. A lot of people don't know this, but you can shoot three blows of energy at the same time!
The first Hunter dragon you will get is Frigg (shown in the picture above).
Warrior dragons are attack-based and deliver damage through long jets of breath, which can be held down over buildings in order to destroy them. They're a very straightforward class with easy-to-use controls, only rivaled by Hunters.
The first Warrior dragon you will get is Draco.
In the breeding castle, dragons are classified by the color of the egg from which they hatched (lineage). There are nine different egg lineages that dragons can be sorted into:
- Red Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a red egg.
- Purple Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a purple egg.
- Blue Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a blue egg.
- Orange Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from an orange egg.
- Green Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a green egg.
- Gold Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a gold egg.
- Platinum Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a platinum egg.
- Sapphire Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a sapphire egg.
- Garnet Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a garnet egg.
- Emerald Egg
This lineage includes dragons that come from a emerald egg.
Dragons also come in different rarities.
Common dragons are usually very easy to hatch and don't take very many tries to breed.
Some dragons are Rare. These dragons are harder to hatch and may have to be bred a certain number of times.
Some dragons are Epic. These dragons have to have their combination bred a certain number of times in order to make up just one egg. The breeding outcome comes in fragments that are be put together to form an egg. (The game will piece them together for you.)
Some dragons are Legendary. These dragons have to have their combination bred a high number of times (around 200 or so) in order to make up just one egg, but it's worth the egg tokens. The breeding outcome comes in fragments that are be put together to form an egg. You can also get them from events of gold chests, like Kinnarakku.
Some dragons are Mythic. These dragons have to have their combination bred an extremely high number of times (around 500 or so) in order to make up just one egg, but it's definitely worth it. The breeding outcome comes in fragments that are put together to form an egg. You can also get them from seasonal events, like Phasmos.
Dragons have the ability to crossbreed and produce unique eggs through combinations that are often accomplished by chance, depending on rarity. Dragon eggs have to be bred inside the breeding castle. Once the pattern necessary to breed a dragon is correct, a breeding session (which, unlike many freemium games, does not require a long amount of time) will require 20 egg tokens, a currency achieved by completing Dragon Guard missions, or through events to initiate. Once successfully bred, an egg may be placed in the incubator and take a certain amount of time to hatch depending on the species. It is worth noting that some dragons have to be breed more than once to obtain an egg.
