New Categories

dragon-city-attack-strength

With the Breeding Dome being opened and the new element dragons available for breeding, 3 new levels of category have been opened up. They can be a bit confusing because they are not a simple progression like category 1 to 5 has been in the past.

Past Category Progression

In the past, the categories were very simple. The higher the category, the more life the dragon would have and the more damage they would do.

  • Category 1: 3200 ATK, 8000 HP
  • Category 2: 3600 ATK, 9000 HP
  • Category 3: 4000 ATK, 10000 HP
  • Category 4: 4800 ATK, 12000 HP
  • Category 5: 5600 ATK, 14000 HP

These are base values, and don’t include any other modifiers like stars, so they don’t match up to what the final values will be. But it gives a clear picture of how the progression was laid out. Higher category = better!

New Category “Progression”

The new categories break the mold. Higher category isn’t always better, and HP and ATK are modified independant of each other.

  • Category 6: 5000 ATK, 9000 HP
  • Category 7: 4500 ATK, 13500 HP
  • Category 8: 3000 ATK, 18000 HP

As you can see, the new categories introduce a tradeoff of ATK and HP.

Category 6 hit harder than Category 8 dragons, almost as hard as Category 5, but have a lot less hitpoints than either. They have the same health as a Category 2 dragon in fact.

Category 8 dragons are the tanks. They have tons of hitpoints, but not that great attacks.

Category 7 dragons are a nice jack of all trades. They do a little less damage than a Category 4, but have a bit more health.

Dragon Master Points

One area where the new categories keep the same trend as the old is in regards to Dragon Master points. Each category level is worth 1 point per dragon level. So a Category 5 dragon at level 40 is worth 200 Dragon Master points.

points = category * dragonLevel

This formula is the same for the new categories, so a Category 8 dragon is worth a whopping 320 Dragon Master points at level 40. 120 more points than a Category 5.

However, until there are habitats that can hold at least 3 Dragons that these new Category 8′s and 7′s (and 4 dragons for 6′s), they don’t make sense for going after Dragon Master points. Because with 2 dragon limits on the habitats, the best you can do is 640 points from a habitat … compared to 800 from 4x Category 5s.

Conclusion

Remember that none of the new dragon elements have any strengths or weaknesses. Category 8 dragons are going to make for long fights!

But in the end, the new categories really aren’t that interesting. Category 5 dragons are still better fighters, even if Category 8 dragons have more health.

Best Ancient Breeding Combos

dragon-city-ancient-breeding

Breeding Ancient dragons in the Breeding Dome functions a lot like regular breeding. Dragons are chosen from a combination of elements. The Ancient element isn’t used at all, because there are no possible dragons with the Ancient element. Each Ancient dragon has a new element (Beauty, Magic, Chaos, Happy, Dream, Soul) and an old element (Terra, Flame, Sea, Nature, etc.). So far there are no breedable dragons that have a new and old element, so what that means is you will either combine the new elements from each parent, or the old elements from each parent.

Since we all want to breed the new dragons with the new elements, that means it’s best if we can minimize the time of the dragons possible from the old elements.

Terra is Best

As is the case in the new style quests, the holy grail is Terra + Terra = Terra, as that results in only 1 possible dragon, with a 15 second breeding time. So basically there’s very little wait to try again. Here are the Ancient Dragons with the Terra element:

So any combination of these 3 dragons is going to fit the bill. The only “miss” will be Terra, and so (if you have an open hatchery slot) even with bad luck you should be able to get one of the new dragons breeding in a few minutes at most. The dragons you can get this way are Prophet, Flawless, and Red Rose:

Fulltune + Ignox = Balloon (16h) or Terra (15s)

Flame is Good Too!

Flame + Flame = Flame (30s) so it’s another great choice for breeding this way. Ancient Dragons with the Flame element are:

This means we have only one Flame + Flame combination:

Rebird + Glowppy = Bride (16h) or Flame (30s)

Coming Soon …

This should help you to be sure to get at least these 3 dragons over the next few days. A breeding calculator will be coming soon to help you pick out the best combos for all the dragons!

Wonderland Island: Alice’s Adventure

Alices Adventure Quest: Wonderland Island

Alice’s Adventure is back on Facebook again. Some slight changes in the quest, but the fight map and rewards are still the same so this walkthrough should still apply in any important regards.

Alice’s Adventure is now on Facebook! Sadly, Cheshire Cat is not a quest reward this time around and neither is the Wonder habitat.

New Element Dragons Unabled to Breed

new-elements-unabled-to-breed

Note, as of April 20 these issues have been resolved. You can fight and train on Facebook with the new Breeding Dome dragons.

Beauty, Magic, Chaos, Happy, Dream, and Soul element dragons appear to not be able to breed in the Breeding Mountain, Ultra Breeding Tree, Breeding Sanctuary, and Deus Breeding Nest.

Problems with Fighting on Facebook

Also note that while they can fight in iOS and Android, they can’t in Facebook. You can select them for your team, but they will not be able to be brought into battle. Likely they will also cause a glitch if selected for your Combat World team, causing problems for anyone who gets matched up against you. So be considerate and don’t leave them on your team on iOS or Android even!

Problems with Training on Facebook

Dragons with the new elements that are sent to the Training Center won’t be able to select any attacks to train. They may get stuck there, as there is no timer. Do not try to train them on Facebook! Training works fine on iOS and Android.
