Welcome to your Dragon City. While many features are similar to ones that we are used to there are also some unique ones as well. In this Guide, we will cover your Dragonville City and include all the information you need to know as you work on your setup.
We have heard the Dragon War Dimension called many things. Among the community, it has been known as “the basement,” “Dragonville,” “the Toothless Realm” (if you do not get this reference, go watch How to Train your Dragon… now), and much more. Whatever you choose to call the Dragon War Realm, it has sparked many players’ interest. Therefore, Teamrealtips will work to get guides out to you so that you can be successful as you build your city among the dragons.
A City Walkthrough
For this guide, we will be walking through the city and exploring each building and its functions. Some will be familiar, others may be new, but hopefully we will be able to give you a basic understanding of what is going on in your Dragon City.
The Dragon’s Den is one of the very first buildings you encounter when beginning your Dragonville account. This is where your Dragon will reside. I named mine Ruby, so Ruby lives in her Den in my Dragon City.
One thing that most players have noted is that if you are not currently able to level up your Dragon, it may be better to wait to hatch it. Dragon Level Up Crystals are only available in packs, and the higher levels can be costly.
We talked some about the Dragon’s Den in Enter The Dragon Dimension. More information can be found there, but we will cover some of the basics here as well.
- Leveling up your Dragon Costs Dragon Level Up Crystals.
- Your Dragon has HP (Hit Points), and takes damage like your Troops do.
- As HP decreases in Combat, Attack and Defense boosts will decrease with it.
- Your Dragon’s stats can be customized utilizing a skill tree.
- Your Dragon can join Rallies and Marches and will assist in Combat.
- The Dragon must be at 100% HP to participate in Rallies or Marches.
- You can send up to 9 Dragons per Rally.
- Your Dragon can occupy and defend your Empire, Resource Tiles, Wonder, etc.
- Your Dragon will naturally heal itself over time while it rests in the Dragon’s Den.
- Instant Heal Items can be found in Special Sales.
This building maxes out at Level 2. Benefits provided by this building are:
- Dragon Reinforcement Capacity: 9
- Dragon March Size: 1
- Dragon Rally Size: 10
Every good city needs a dungeon! Where else would the monsters lurk? You certainly do not want them out among the common folks, they frighten easily. The Dungeon is your access point for your Speed Dungeon and your Explorer Dungeon. The Dungeon stays at level 1 and does not go to a higher level.
The Speed Dungeon, we are familiar with. It is where we go to kill our Lightning Shardbeast. This beast will drop not only Speed Up items, but resources, making it a valuable asset to our cities. In addition, there have now been special dungeons added for gems and the black market, so be sure to check out that dungeon as it contains valuable treasures.
The Explorer Dungeon is not yet available. It is there, but is not something we have been able to access at this point. However, if it is similar to the Explorer Dungeon of the past, it will offer very helpful rewards for slaying the monsters that lie within.
The Black Market is new to Dragonville. It needs to be unlocked, but unlike our Black Market in the Demigod Dimension, the Unlock is free. Here, you can buy different items for your Dragon City utilizing Black Market coins. These can be obtained through the Gold Store and by participating in special Black Market Events.
The Portal is where you travel between the Demigod Dimension and the “basement.” It only levels to one and its sole use is to transport you between dimensions.
The Stronghold is the center of your city. The level of your Stronghold determines most of what you are able to do and what buildings you can unlock. In addition, tapping on your Stronghold will also give you an overview of your city’s economy. The Stronghold in Dragonville currently goes to Level 30.
Below, you can see what benefits you receive at each Stronghold Level. Certain buildings that are dependent on your Stronghold Level are listed as well, so that you can see when these open.
|1||1||Alliance Help Max: +1|
March Size: 1K
March Slots: +1
|2||2||March Size: 2K|
|3||3||Alliance Helps Max: +1|
March Size: 3K
|4||4||March Size: 4K|
|5||5||Alliance Help Max: +1|
March Size: 5K
|6||6||March Size: 6K|

|7||7||Alliance Help Max: +1|

|8||8||March Size: 8K|
|9||9||Alliance Help Max: +1|

|10||10||March Size: 10K|
The Academy is where you complete research. Currently, we have four research trees in Dragonville:
- Wall Traps
Upgrading your academy speeds up your research and also allows access to new improvements for your city. Research does add good stats to your setup, but also gives a substantial increase in Power, so if you want to stay low-power, be aware of the power that is being added by your research.

Hall of War
The Hall of War comes with its own set of abilities. This is where your rallies gather and leave from within your city, and we all love a good rally. The War is led by the Hero of the Player who initiated the Rally. By increasing the level of your Hall of War, you can increase the number of troops you can send in a given Rally at a time.
Hall of War Details
The Embassy allows you to get reinforcements from your fellow Alliance members. The owners of reinforcment Troops pay for their own upkeep. This is an important building that helps you to defend against attacks! Increasing the level of this building will allow you to get more reinforcements from your fellow Alliance members.
|Level||Troop Capacity||Level||Troop Capacity|
The Prison does not open until Stronghold Level 15. At this point, your Hero is now able to be captured and you can capture the Heroes of your Attackers. Upgrading your Prison will decrease the amount of time you need to hold your enemies heroes before being able to execute. In addition, by holding Heroes in your prison, you are able to gain additional Attack benefits based off the Level of the Prisoner. You receive these benefits at Prison Level 30.
- Highest Prisoner Level 1~19- All Troop Attack 1%
- Highest Prisoner Level 20~24- All Troop Attack 2%
- Highest Prisoner Level 25-29- All Troop Attack 4%
- Highest Prisoner Level 30~34- All Troop Attack 7%
- Highest Prisoner Level 35~39- All Troop Attack 11%
- Highest Prisoner Level 40~44- All Troop Attack 16%
- Highest Prisoner Level 45~49- All Troop Attack 22%
- Highest Prisoner Level 50+- All Troop Attack 30%
The Altar opens at Stronghold 20. This building works hand-in-hand with your Prison, as you cannot execute the Heroes in your Prison until you have an Altar. In addition, the Altar provides some great benefits when your Altar Boost is active.
|Level||Attack (%)||Troop Defense Bonus (%)||Health (%)||Speed (%)|
The Gymnos is all about your Hero. The purpose of this building is to give your Hero an XP Bonus and to retain XP for descendant Heroes. The higher the level of this building, the better your Hero XP modifier. If you are looking for XP for your Hero leveling, this building is super important.
|Level||Hero XP Modifier (%)||Hero XP Retention (%)||Level||Hero XP Modifier (%)||Hero XP Retention (%)|
Our next building is the Marketplace. This building will allow you to send resources to other Alliance Members. By leveling up your Marketplace, you can increase the amount of help you can send your fellow Alliance Member and decrease the tax that you pay when sending Help. If you like to share in the wealth, this building will be a huge help.
Cinder’s Sneaky Tip: One of the reasons I love the marketplace is that if I am looking for an Alliance Mate, and they are not online, I can simply send a march of resources to them and follow the march! This could also be used for other… ummmm… covert missions.
The Storehouse protects a portion of your resources from enemy attacks. A higher-level Storehouse will protect more resources. So if you want to keep your resources safe when you are being attacked, be sure to upgrade this building.
Let’s be honest, this is my favorite building. Here is where you will combine materials and craft gear. You can also combine Gems here or collectibles. Leveling up the Forge will give you benefits as well, including Normal Equipment Crafting Cost Reduction, and at Level 21 you unlock your second accessory slot for gear.
The Watchtower warns you of all incoming marches targeting your city and your city’s encampments. Leveling up this building will give you further details as you progress.
|1||Warns of incoming marches on your Empire, resource tiles you occupy, or Wonders under your control.|
|5||Tells you the purpose of the March (Attack, Trade, etc)|
|10||Tells you the name of the player sending the March and provides coordinates to the player.|
|15||Tells you the arrival time of a March.|
|20||Tells you the Guild of the Player sending the March.|
|25||Gives an estimate of the total troops in the March.|
|30||Tells you the troop types in an incoming attack.|
Barracks, Hospitals, and Villas, oh my!
Traditionally we are used to our Barracks, Hospitals, and Villas offering set stats. However, in Dragonville, this is different. Barracks are where we train our troops, but here they no longer offer Health or Defense. Barracks give bonuses for training. By increasing the number of Barracks and the level, you can increase the number of troops you can train at once and decrease the cost.
The Hospital no longer gives Health or Defense benefits, either. The level and number of hospitals you have, however, does control how many beds you have. If you want to set up so that more troops go to the hospital than die, you will want to build more hospitals and level them up.
Finally, we have Villas. The Villas are still for production of Silver, but they also offer a Troop Defense Bonus. This benefit starts at Level 10 and increases with the number of Villas you have.
|Level||Troop Defense Bonus (%)||Level||Troop Defense Bonus (%)|
Farms, Logging Camps, Quarry, and Mine
These are where you create the rest of your resources needed to complete functions within the Dragon Realm. By increasing the level of these buildings, you can increase the amount of resources that you produce. In addition, by increasing the level of these buildings, you can increase your holding capacity for these resources. If you have more resources than your Empire Capacity, your RSS buildings will stop producing.
There are so many more features in Dragonville that Teamrealtips is working to find out more about so we can continue to bring you the best information possible. As buildings are added and we continue to learn more, we will keep this guide updated with the latest information possible.
