0 310

If things seem a little wet, well it’s because the Hydro Dragon has arrived. We are finding ourselves with a fleet (is Fleet the right word? IDK, Google it for me) of Dragons, each with their own purpose. We have taken the time to cover all the Dragon Levels and our Inferno Dragon and if you would like to read more up on our other Fiery friends make sure you follow the links we will be sure to provide. However, today shall be all about our Hydro Dragon and its role in the world of Game of War.

The Details- Enter The Dragon’s Den

Once again our Dragon’s Den looks unchanged from the outside but big changes are happening on the inside. A Third Dragon has joined the ranks and it has its own purpose as well. This Dragon is our Hydro Dragon and it is an interesting looking creature. We now have:

  1. The Original or Reborn Dragon
  2. The Inferno Dragon
  3. The Hydro Dragon

Each of these Dragons have stats that look a little different but you will find all of them in the Den where you are able to level and skill them. 

Hydro Dragon

The Blog introduced our new Hydro Dragon with the following quote: 

The Hydro Dragon wields devastating Attack and Wonder Bonuses. Be a big fish in a small pond with an array of powerful abilities. Watch as it washes away all the competition before you! Take advantage of all of the unique skills that this new Dragon has to offer!

We already know some about this new Dragon however, before we really dive into the particulars we are going to take a minute to look at the skills that it offers. 

The Stats

The Stats on the Hydro Dragon are going to look in some ways very similar to the stats that we saw on our Inferno Dragon. We will discuss this more in-depth as we go on in the article. However, for now we are simply going to cover the different categories, the stats offered, and make sure you know what those stats are. 

Dragon Bond

The Dragon Bond Stats include stats that are specific to your Dragon. So we are going to see Dragon Regeneration, HP and flight. 

  • Dragon Bond: Hydro Dragon Regenerative Tail (Max: 600%)- This helps your Dragon naturally heal more quickly
  • Dragon Bond: Hydro Dragon Growth (Max: 300,000)- This skill increases your Hydro Dragon HP 
  • Dragon Bond: Hydro Dragon Flight (Max: 300%)- This skill increases your Hydro Dragon’s March Speed. 

Dragon Spirit

These are going to be your type stats. Which means they are going to increase your infantry, ranged, and cavalry stats. These are great stats for different types of players. 

  • Dragon Spirit: Type Attack (Max: 10,000%)
  • Dragon Spirit: Type Defense (Max: 16,000%) 
  • Dragon Spirit Type Health (Max: 14,000%) 

Dragon Destruction 

Here is where we really start to delve into specific skills. Here we see stats that are for attackers attacking Strongholds only. Dragon Destruction is going to be an attacker only skill and we will see our Empire Assault Stats here. 

  • Dragon Destruction: Empire Assault Attack (Max: 22,000%) 
  • Dragon Destruction: Empire Assault Defense (Max: 28,000%)
  • Dragon Destruction: Empire Assault Health (Max: 13,000%)

Dragon Courage

With Dragon Courage stats we are going to delve into some general combat stats that will help to strengthen your troop stats in various situations. These are stats that are going to be beneficial in multiple situations. 

  • Dragon Courage: Troop Attack (Max: 18,000%) 
  • Dragon Courage: Troop Defense (Max: 25,000%)
  • Dragon Courage: Troop Health (Max: 9,000%) 

Dragon Carnage

The Dragon Carnage stats are where we will start looking at Wonder Specific Stats. These stats are only applicable in various Wonder Battle Situations. 

  • Dragon Carnage: Wonder Rally Troop Attack (Max: 25,000%) 
  • Dragon Carnage: Wonder Defender Troop Attack (Max: 25,000%) 
  • Dragon Carnage: Wonder Troop Health (Max: 25,000%) 

Dragon Purge

Next up, we have Dragon Purge stats. These stats are quite interesting. What makes these stats interesting is that they mostly strengthen Ranged stats with some dragon stats as well. We have seen Infantry Stats in our Inferno Dragon and next I am sure we will see a Dragon with Cavalry Stats. 

  • Dragon Purge: Ranged Attack vs Battle Marked Target (Max: 20,000%) 
  • Dragon Purge: Ranged Attack (Max: 20,000%)
  • Dragon Purge: Colossal Hydro Dragon Growth (Max: 500,000%)- Once again this is an HP skill

Dragon Ego

Finally, we have Dragon Ego Stats. These are very similar to the Dragon Purge stats in that they strengthen only your Ranged troops. 

  • Dragon Ego: Ranged Attack (Max: 18,000%)
  • Dragon Ego: Ranged Defense (Max: 23,000%)
  • Dragon Ego: Ranged Health (Max: 10,000%)


The Comparison

We already know that the Inferno Dragon is stronger than the Reborn Dragon at lower levels. However, where does the Hydro Dragon fit in? We heard a lot of people in the community saying that the stats were exactly the same except the Hydro was for Ranged instead of Infantry. However, in really looking at the stats and comparing them to that of the Inferno Dragon we do see some slight differences. 

For the majority of the stats offered by the Hydro Dragon, they are exactly the same. However, if we take a closer look at the Dragon Courage and Dragon Spirit Stats we see that these numbers are not the same. This tells us a couple of key ways in which this dragon differs from the Inferno:

  1. The Hydro Dragon does in fact have a Ranged instead of an Infantry Focus
  2. The Hydro Dragon has slightly higher Type Stats than the Inferno Dragon
  3. The Hydro Dragon has slightly higher Overall Troop stats than the Inferno Dragon 

The Costs

Costs are also going to be very similar to your Inferno Dragon. Recall that all of our costs are community gathered and please help us fill in the blanks as you can! 

Hydro Dragon Costs

Hydro Dragon for Defenders

For our defenders, good news! This Dragon is able to defend alongside your other two dragons and even at only level one, it is going to help your results. We did some testing to confirm this and our defender did better with all three dragons defending rather than just two even though the Hydro was only level one. Skills to focus in on for our defenders include: 

  • Dragon Spirit
  • Dragon Ego
  • Dragon Purge (Specifically, the Ranged Attack)

Hydro Dragon for Attackers 

For our Attackers, you are still only able to send one Dragon in a march. The Hydro Dragon does have slightly higher Type Stats and Overall Troop Stats. However, when we look at the Empire Assault Stats or the Dragon Ego or Purge stats they are exactly the same as on the Inferno Dragon except with a Ranged focus. At this time this Dragon is going to offer a little extra attack through your overall troop stats and type stats, however, really the focus of this Dragon should be for Attackers who are using a Ranged march. Skills to focus in on for our attackers include:

  • Dragon Destruction
  • Dragon Spirit
  • Dragon Courage
  • Dragon Ego
  • Dragon Purge

Hydro Dragon for Wonder Players

Last but not least we have our Wonder Players. For this player base you are not going to see an increase in the Dragon Carnage stats but once again you will see the increase in Dragon Spirit and Dragon Courage stats. For these players the stats you are going to focus in on include:

  • Dragon Carnage
  • Dragon Spirit
  • Dragon Courage
  • Dragon Ego
  • Dragon Purge

That is the quick and dirty rundown on our newest Dragon folks! Make sure you unlock that Hydro Level up and get to burning down your Kingdom or leaving your attackers in disgrace.
