Hello there Osirans,
Some of you may know me as Anya, or DemonFang, a mixture of both of those names together or "That one player that had way too much money from her highschool job and spent it all on dragons". Over the passed year and a half I have been slowly writing a number of guides for our dragon friends, as there has not really been an up-to-date guide for dragons in a while and most of what people learn once they join the game is through other players that have been playing longer. I decided to change that, and set up a website where I would painstakingly and thanklessly write down my findings on each and every dragon family, as well as bucketloads of ideas on how to train them and what their strengths and weaknesses are.
I'll phrase that again: I wrote these guys with my own research and the research of other like-minded individuals. There was no datamining involved and there isn't exactly an official guide anywhere so these guides are not based off of numbers and code - they're based off of the hard-working experience of me and several other dragon trainers like me. So everything here is straight from the heart! Let's get started!
Just a small disclaimer: I am writing these in my spare time and through investing time, research and possibly money into my own builds and of course getting the invaluable assistance of others. Guides can take anything from a day to several months depending on how fresh the build is or how much work it needs until it's ready to test. You might be waiting for a while for me to write a certain build depending on how RNG in the game treats me and for that I can only apologize.
My guides will likely always be WIP and there will always be more for me to write - read below if you want to speed up the process for a specific build!
Custom Guidance: If you have a dragon subject and no idea what to do with it, PM me with its stats and information if you want some general ideas. I'm more than happy to help if my template builds or guides are not what you're looking for. Alternatively, if there is a guide you want to see, feel free to suggest it to me in the comments here. I'm always kinda stuck in what I want to build next anyway.
Current Project: Skytouched Intermediate Builds
These guides are aimed not to be step-by-step instructions on how to build a dragon, but they are more designed to point players in the right direction while still providing them with the creative freedom to design a dragon build that they can easily tailor to their class, play style and tastes. Each guide contains three things: an Overview of the dragon family, the Availability of the dragon family as well as notable members of the family/information on how to get them and last but not least, "Skills to look out for". This section will be a simple compilation of skills that work well on the dragon breed in question, and how these skills fit into specific and/or all builds. The skills are designed to be combined as the player sees fit, and it is my hope that the guides can provide enough of a judgement call that they can decide for themselves what they need within the skill slots that their dragon possesses. If that's not what you're looking for and you simply want builds to copy and paste with no trouble, the Intermediate Guides or my complete templates may be of more interest to you. (Note that both these sections are very much WIP.
The guides that will be listed on this page will aim to help you build a dragon that will not only be tailored to you and your class but will also be able to survive a little longer than usual in some pretty unbelievable situations, such as Endgame dungeons and raids (as long as you're careful). Some of these builds could get quite creative - of course, these builds can be changed in any way by you and you don't have to follow these guides to the letter, but if they can make your life a little bit easier whereas otherwise you would have had no idea, I'll be happy.
Fabled Ancient Intermediate Guides - Currently two
Skytouched Intermediate Guides - Currently one
More to come!
Long story short, this section will be for specialist builds tailored for specific segments of the game such as Battleground and the Dragon Tournament, and other specific situations you might not think you need a dragon for! Currently nothing here yet though.
This guide lists a number of dragons that are not subject to the will of Server Load and don't shrink several inches when summoned by the Player. If you want a more Dragon-sized Dragon, this guide's your guy. Knock yourself out! Click the name above to go to the page. (Warning for 3G users - this guide is quite image-heavy.)
This guide was more for people like me who are severely triggered by not being able to see dragons in their full glory. Since the days when Thadrea was first added, a glitch has existed which has plagued most new in-game dragons, which I simply call the Camera Glitch. I made this guide, and took the comparison images, so people could decide whether or not they felt like dealing with this bug. I know most players probably won't care, but some Dragon Lovers might be irked by this bug, so here's your guide to either avoiding these dragons or just exploring their ranks.
