As the new season is approaching, and more details are released on the new divine dragons, every player is trying to figure out what dragons will be winners, and which ones are perch-warmers. We all have seen dragons which have turned out to be amazing, and others which have been total lemons.
For the most part, it comes down to the dragon’s spell set. Some spells are incredibly efficiant, while others are prohibitively expensive in rage costs, or just pretty much useless. However, even the strongest spells in the game do not always make a great dragon. Summon dodo is a really powerful spell, but Necryx would be a terrible dragon if you swapped his elemental barrier for this spell. A similar problem would result if Kinnarus’s invincibility shield was exchanged for elemental barrier. It just would not be the same.
So, I propose that we get together as a community and try to find out what makes a dragon tick. What spells make a great sorcerer? Multiple AoEs? A form of invincibility? A summon guardian? What about warrior? Is better to have fewer active spells, and more resists? Is a damage boost like heated breath required to make a it great? Are there multiple styles of good hunters or warriors? Is a cloaking spell a must for all great hunters? I would like to look at not only what spells have worked together, but hopefully get down to why these spells work well together.
There are so many unanswered questions, but loads of data. Can we find a specific role that is best filled by each dragon? Is there any spell set that would allow a warrior or a sorcerer to actually be a lead? Perhaps along the way we could come up with good ideas for brand new spells. So many new spells are almost carbon copies of older spells. There must be some new ideas out there for original spells that would balance well with the game.
Thank you for your feedback on this idea,
PS. I would like to make this a constructive thread, so for those who just want to say “I hate PG” or “So-and-so is a blankety-blank,” there a plenty of other threads for you to choose from. Thanks!
