Before you can access your Dragon, you need to construct the Dragon Stone - the Building where every action affecting your Dragon is carried out. After it has been built, you can begin to interact with your Dragon.
In the Dragon Stone window you will find three tabs: Dragon, Battle, and Dragon Arts.
In the Dragon tab, you can select the Dragon Art Bonuses you wish to activate. You will receive the benefits of your chosen Dragon Arts for as long as the selected Dragon Bonuses are active. In the Info tab, you can also change the name of your Dragon.
In the Battle tab, you can slay Monsters with your Dragon and receive Dragon Points. Each successful attack and victory over a Monster will earn you Dragon Points.
The Dragon Arts tab contains the Dragon Arts tree. Discover and upgrade Dragon Arts to receive a wide variety of bonuses.
Studying Dragon Arts allows you to receive a variety of bonuses, such as an increased Resource production rates, accelerated Unit Training and Movement Speeds, Offense and Defense Boosts, and much more.
In order to discover and upgrade Dragon Arts, you will require Dragon Points. Dragon Points alone will be sufficient to discover the 1st and 2nd "Additional Slot" Dragon Arts. However, the discovery of the 3rd Additional Slot requires Dragon Marks and Dragon Points, while 4th and 5th Additional Slots require Sapphires to be discovered.
Dragon Arts are divided into two major groups - Conventional and Arcane Dragon Arts. The main difference between the two is as follows: the Bonuses from Conventional Dragon Arts can be activated without Dragon Marks, while Arcane Dragon Art Bonuses require Dragon Marks to activate. Arcane Dragon Arts will give you more powerful magical bonuses than Conventional ones.
Activating Dragon Bonuses
Each player starts with one unlocked slot for selecting and activating Dragon Arts. In order to increase the number of slots available to you, you must discover the Dragon Arts of Additional Slots. This increases the amount of Dragon Arts that you can activate and receive Bonuses from at any one time. There are 5 Arts of this kind; discovering each of them will unlock an Additional Slot in the Dragon Bonuses section of the Info tab.
Remember! Only Dragon Points are required to discover the 1st and 2nd Additional Slots. However, the Discovery of the 3rd Additional Slot requires Dragon Marks and Dragon Points, while 4th and 5th Additional Slots require Sapphires to be discovered
Dragon Points and Dragon Marks
Dragon Points are used for discovering and upgrading Dragon Arts. Fighting and slaying Monsters in the Battle tab of the Dragon Stone will earn you Dragon Points. After the battle, you can check how many Points you have earned by visiting the Info tab.
In order to earn more Dragon Points for fighting Monsters, you need to discover and upgrade the "Master of Monsters" Dragon Art.
Please note: If you select this Dragon Art and activate its Bonus while still fighting a Monster, the Bonus will not become active until after that Monster has been slain. However, the bonus will be applied to the next Monster you defeat.
Dragon Marks are Resources that are required for activating the Dragon Bonuses of Arcane Dragon Arts, and can be earned during Tournaments.
How do I fight Monsters?
In the Battle tab, you can fight Monsters with your Dragon. In order to attack the Monster, you need click on it. The HP bar above the Monster will show how much damage you have dealt, but if your attack attempt was unsuccessful, you will see the word "Miss!" on your screen. Meanwhile, the Mana bar at the bottom of the screen shows how many attempts at hitting the Monster are remaining. Attacks require Mana, regardless of whether you hit the Monster or not.
Once all Mana has been exhausted, your Dragon will be unable to continue fighting. If this happens, you will have two options: you can either wait for your Mana to replenish itself, or refresh your Mana instantly in exchange for Sapphires. The number of Monsters you can fight each day is limited; once this limit has been reached, you will see a message with a timer, which counts down the time until new Monsters appear.
