As War Dragons continues to grow, we’ve taken some time to reflect on the balance between Dragons, their spells, and enemy bases. Coming in 2019 will be a series of updates to spells and how they scale proportionally to a Dragon’s current power. Certain spells work off of the Dragon’s Base HP, not factoring in any runes, research, or other modifiers. This makes battles especially difficult for Sorcerer and Warrior Dragons. As towers get progressively more powerful and Dragon Riders make more of a permanent addition to many bases and Dragons, it’s time for spells to adapt to the new power balance! We’ve spent a large amount of effort to change parts of the spell damage formula so that spells are based on Modified HP instead of Base HP of Dragons, which will help even out the overall balance of spells in the game.
Please note: There has been and will continue to be extensive testing performed on these changes from both the Dragons Team and members of the Gameplay Faction. With the proper modifiers (research, runes, and battle boosts), upcoming spell changes will reflect a fair and balanced gameplay intended to even the playing field!
We’re announcing Spell Scaling before its release in an effort to gather community feedback on the feature and deliver the best possible update to players as possible. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this announcement so we take everyone’s opinions into consideration.
