SummerKai Season Structure

  • The dragons and riders are based around the Island Nations, tribes of seafaring elves and humans.
  • The egg token boost is 3.15K sigils for 100% and 6.3K for 125%.
  • Anything connected to the mythics will have a key. The Egg Token Boost and Festive Dragon won’t have keys.
  • The structure is largely staying the same, other than the base boost being available at the start (see its section below in Week 1) and something that isn’t a branch detailed next week in the Tuesday blog. There’ll be a defensive dragon rider first on release; the second one will be an offensive dragon rider.

Week 1/On Launch (facebook, YouTube)

  • These are listed in the order seen in the season structure starting from the upper left to right, then going down a row. Mythic dragons don’t have portraits.
  • Week 1 doesn’t include the Legendary Warrior, second rider, or Festive Dragon.
  • Lore & Portraits have their own section at the end.

Namaka - Mythic Empyrean+ (future tier) Ice Invoker


  • Cresting Wave is a red spell but pink on-screen just to save your eyes.
  • Invoke: Freeze - when activated, performs like a breath attack (don’t need to separately tap a spell to activate) that has a freeze effect (impacted by stun, as it disables the breath attack, but not mages)
  • Deflecting Gale - like a combination of Dodge and Flash, though multiple ticks of damage, and reloads ammo (mentioned verbally, not in on-screen notes); protects from the same things as Flash (only vulnerable to lightning, storm, ice turret, fire turret super shot)
  • Havok will be disabled on Namaka, not necessarily all Invokers.
  • Future Invokers will be available as legendaries and future lineage tiers as well, but Invokers won’t be retroactively added.
  • Remember Ryuu will be temporarily replaced with Namaka, detailed here in the last section, “Take Flight with the New Invoker”.
  • There was also a twitch stream detailing Invokers.

Meglok - Mythic Empyrean+ (future tier) Earth Warrior


  • Apex Predator - cycles between Primordial Breath (boosts breath power) and Primal Shield (“super powerful white explosive shield”)
  • Tangling Kelp - similar to Jorm’s Flash Freeze

Dreth, Legendary Earth Empyrean Sorceror (Discount)

  • Hydrostrike has no rage cost.

Scorpa, Legendary Fire Empyrean Hunter

  • Caustic Spines: The increased damage bonus doesn’t carryover to the next dragon.

Leilani - Defensive Dragon Rider

  • Skills will affect: Increased Tower HP, Increased Tower Attack, Increased Mill Production, Increased Food Production, Decreased Building Upgrade Time
  • Elemental Crafting Shard Options: Earth, Ice, Fire
  • from the Island Nations

Base Boost

  • The SummerKai boost will be available on the first day of the season and functions the same as in Springblossom, other than duration, which will just last for the SummerKai season.
  • Max stackable boost: 22%
    • Anyone who claimed the full Springblossom boost will see no additional benefit, just won’t have any drop in the boost, assuming that the SummerKai boost is fully claimed before expiration of the Springblossom boost on July 3. Those who only claimed partial boosts would be able to boost up to 22%.

Lore & Portraits

Portraits will continue to have no background options (same claim as the background), outside of animated ones that are only available with a background.

Week 6: Legendary Warrior & Second Dragon Rider (warrior on twitch, rider on fb)

Click to Show

twitch covered the warrior, while facebook (tomorrow, 2 PM PT - check the timezone conversion link in the stream section above) will cover the offensive rider.

Chelonoth, Coral Behemoth, Legendary Empyrean Wind Warrior

  • Reef Familiar is similar to Apophet’s Shadow and other effectively permanent summons. Lawson notes that it doesn’t improve rage regain, unlike the other summons, though is “more aggressive” (fs note: maybe more damage then? but details in the Tuesday blog).
  • Vapor Shield is free to cast.
  • Note the lack of resist; they’re trying out the familiar and shield as ways to reduce damage.

Ano, Offensive (as in to attack) Dragon Rider

  • Pictures are in Lore & Portraits below to save space.
  • Dragon HP increase, Dragon Attack increase, Flak Tower Resistance improvement, Rage Regeneration increase - no class-specific boosts, all generic, so it also works on Namaka
  • Shard element options: Earth, Ice, and Wind

Week 8: :firefin: Festive Dragon (twitch)

Click to Show
  • won’t have a key to be used to unlock mythics
  • “a really fun friend for Axi and Chunk” ~Arelyna



  • The fireball is estimated to two or three shot three, maybe four, towers at a time. The name was more just for amusement on a spell name.
  • Underwhelming Fireball was strongly hinted as being one rage but wait for the Tuesday blog for final details :stuck_out_tongue:

Miscellaneous

Click to Show
  • There’s a new event hopefully coming out during the summer season.
  • You’d have to get Kharnyx fired for a dragon to be named Bob.
  • Kharnyx said that there would be something vampire-adjacent in fall.
  • PGJared rider with a pan and “fabulous beard” -Arelyna/Lawson
  • They didn’t bring ice cream to share with the stream :sob:
  • Stack Up (bit.ly/DonatetoStackUp): Due to clearing $10,000 quickly, they’ll match up to an additional +$5,000 for $15,000 USD total. The full amount goes to Stack Up, and portraits will be added to your account in approximately one or two business weeks.
    • During the breeding event next week, July 24, if players exceed a threshold of 22B event points, PG will donate another $10,000 USD.

When Abyssal tier releases, remember to go back and claim the Abyssal stone for Namaka/Meglok.

Edit: A more detailed PG Response

Legendary Abyssal: First Three (twitch)

  • going back to a more foundational building block (based upon monsters) instead of Atlas region-based
  • Three waves, one of each class (may/may not include invoker), two months apart between waves
  • Wave 1: 3 Legendary, Wave 2: 3 Remaining Legendary, Wave 3: 3 Mythic
    • reason they gave was information overload in earlier release methods and to allow for streamlining and future planning
  • Legendary: 1,400 fragments; Mythic: 2,600 fragments
    • If they maintain the 200 eggs per fragment, that’s 280K for Legendary and 520K for Mythic.
  • Mythic Empyrean will be used as a parent of the same class in Abyssal Wave 1, which will then be one of two parents for the Mythic Abyssal (e.g. Lusian + x? -> Oculex + y? -> one of two for Mythic Abyssal Hunter).
  • There was a bit near the beginning talking about endgame players having too many tokens. Tier-based discounting (through the end of vanguard) and research
    (through Sapphire) will follow. (:wave: to Empyrean/near-endgame players who don’t have the stockpiles and miss all discounting); there wasn’t mention about timing, around the time of Abyssal. More details to follow in the blog.

Cordys, Legendary Dark Warrior

  • breath leaves a trail of mushroom and fungus

  • toggle mechanics work like on Lusian’s Corruption of the Void

Oculex, Legendary Earth Hunter

image

  • Lightning Surge: more damage than Chain Lightning, fewer bounces

Orthoptar, Legendary Wind Sorcerer



image

  • All four are new spells, though conceptually exist. Summon Swarm is a weak but spammable summon warrior. Locust Cloud is similar to Deflecting Blast on Namaka. Acid Spit is similar to weaker Umbral Spike-type spells that don’t necessarily destroy the tower.

Love this aquatic theme. Hopefully we get some more deep-sea-esque dragons later on in the season.

While true, I won’t be flying him for another year and a half probably. :joy: Heard the festive is “scary but adorable” so I’m holding out for that.

Dragons nowadays have freeze genes in their DNA :snowflake::snowflake::snowflake:

They didn’t show the wave 2 non-mythic warrior. :slightly_frowning_face:

I actually think the mythic warrior has potential, from the description. However, I am disappointed to see that it’s another earth warrior, since we’re due for a fire or air mythic warrior, not another earth.

I guess I’ll focus on base boost and egg token boost this season. And maybe the festive. :disappointed:

I knew that there might be a vampire or something related to those bloodsuckers in the fall season. Maybe that season will be my chance to get a replacement for Zotz?

Im pretty disappointed with Meglok. I’ve been waiting to get a good warrior for so long. I missed out on UVS because they waited so long to change his spell and was really hoping this one would be good.

No way to avoid rage drain (if Kelp has a long cool down), no way to recover rage and only dark flak resist? This feels like a legendary dragon, not a mythic. Can we please get Dark Flak resist changed to either Adaptive Flak Resist or Elemental Resist? This kind of feels like a lamer version of Huitzil. Unless the stats end up being really good, I may just get the discount and the defensive and sit it out. Very disappointing

I thought they’d have a super amazing mythic hunter to make people want to spend to get the new shiny as well as a great mythic but I’m glad it was a warrior. I’m saving for Fall mythics and I didn’t want to be tempted.

One things for sure. I’m probably only getting Dreth or Scorpa. Maybe I’ll just get the egg token bonus and save all the chests and rubies for the fall season

It’s up now :slight_smile:
