Edit: Added two new sections and updated the iOS section. Added download links and info regarding Google Chrome. Added new update links to threads.
1. What is Battle Dragons?
Battle Dragons is the next Spacetime Game available to download on android right now. It is a real time strategy game in which you build up your very own dragon village and train up dragons in which to attack other players dragon villages. There are two playable modes, build and battle. Build mode gives you six different categories. Battle mode has three different sub modes.
2. What is the main aim/objective for Battle Dragons?
Your main goal for BD is to create a dragon village which is set for other players to attack. You can kit out your village by building lots of different structures, including builders, gold mines, hoards, sheep barns and corrals, Dojos, camps and special powered sheep! (More on this). As well as building using gold, you can battle other players in PVP, and complete the story mode. There is also a sparring mode, which allows you to test your village without losing dragons (Your main source of attacking). You command your army of dragons to victory and gather resources from production.
3. What are the build mode items?
There are lots of different build mode essentials to build. I have chosen the main build mode essentials.
Builders - Builders are used to strenghen up your fortress and make it the best it can be//!
Gold Mine - Used to gather gold, which can then be used to buy other items.
Gold Hoard - Basically your gold storage. The more you upgrade this the more gold you can gather. The amount of gold you can store is shown at the top of your screen.
Sheep Barn - The sheep barn is extremely important, as it produces sheep. Gold and Sheep are used to upgrade your dragon hall, camps, gold mines and Dojos. The more you upgrade, the better your resource gathering! More sheep can be raised if the barn is upgraded.
Sheep Corral - The sheep corral allows you can expand your sheep production and storage, meaning you can unlock access to more dragons!
Dojos - Dojos is your dragon production item. It is always best to have a couple of these, as you can produce more and more dragons, making PVP, Sparring and story missions far easier.
Wall - Walls are used as a defense mechanism that other players need to get around to gain access into your fortress. They protect sheep and gold production and keep your villagers safe from attack! Try to place walls around all objects that are easy to reach, like villager homes and gold production.
Camp - Camps are for storing your dragons. When you have enough resources, upgrade and build more of them, as your village will be able to hold more dragons.
Special sheep - Special sheep, like blast sheep, megablast sheep and skyblast sheep are used and placed around your village to defend your fortress. They are quite expensive too.
4. What Dragons can you buy?
There are eight dragon varieties you can buy in the build menu. These are:
Fire Dragon - Breathing fire on attackers. Really damaging. 250 gold each.
Lightning Dragon - Shock and awe attacks. Strikes against invading throngs and repel attacks if lucky. 1000 gold each.
Acid Dragon - Attacks using acid. Make sure your acid dragons are at a far enough distance. 8000 gold each.
Ice Dragon - Slows down enemy attackers using ice breath! 180000 gold each.
Copper Dragon - Copper Dragons hone in on flying attackers. 22500 gold each.
Silver Dragon - Honor quickens ability to act. Fast, Ferocious damage defending your fortress. 3000000 gold each.
Gold Dragon - Heavy hitting dragon, dealing good damage. 3000000 gold each.
Shadow Dragon - Invisible dragon. Place near an inviting location. 1000000 gold each.
5. What are guardians?
Guardians are used to protect your fortress for "x" amount of days. You are given a starting guardian for free. You can buy one day, two day and one week guardians, protecting your fortress for that amount of time.
H2N posted this in the change log recently. Thought I'd reiterate what he posted.
Dragon Guardians will now automatically protect your Fortress after you have been attacked! If your enemy scores a one-Star victory, you will get a free eight (8) hour shield. For a two-Star victory over your Fortress you receive a free twelve (12) hour shield. And, after yielding a three-Star victory to your enemy your base will be protected by the Guardians for sixteen (16) hours.
One day is 100 pearls.
Two days is 150 pearls.
One week is 250 pearls.
6. What are pearls?
Pearls is your purchasable currency with real money which allows you to speed through training dragons and upgrading. They can be bought in packs of 500, up to 16,000.
500 - £3.35
1200 - £6.71
2600 - £13.43
7000 - £33.58
16000 - £67.17
You can of course earn free pearls and buy storage upgrades with them. Pearls can also be found in stones and trees when you remove them. Pearls is the equivalent of platinum in the Legends titles.
7. What is battle mode?
Once you have finished building up your village/fortress, you can enter battle mode.
A) PVP - You can attack other people's fortresses and see who attacked yours in the "battle log" page.
B) Story - Progress through the story mode for free. Each level has a maximum of three stars. There are over 20 different story levels in the game.
C) Sparring - Allows you to test your fortress using dragons.
It is worth noting thatCarapace mentioned below that as your base gets considerably larger, the fee you have to pay to PVP and spar gradually increases as well.
8. What is a tribe?
A tribe is the guild equivalent in Battle Dragons. Guilds allow you to privately chat with other players and connect together. You can connect to Facebook to invite friends to download the game and join your tribe. Again, there are members, recruiters, officers and the tribe master. If you find a inappropriate tribe name, you can report it from in game. You can create a tribe for 50,000 gold from the tribe menu. (More on this on question 10.)
NEW: As well as joining a tribe, you can request for other players to leave you donated dragons. Donated dragons will help attack other players when they are trying to take over your village. You need to be in a tribe for this to happen. Just click on your tribe lodge once you are in one, and press request troops. When someone has accepted your request, check your mail, and then they will appear around your tribe lodge.
9. How do I chat to other players?
Chatting to others is currently still in the testing stage. There are two types of chat. (Public and tribe chat). Public allows you to speak to other players. As intended, the players currently online will be able to speak to you publicly. Tribe chat is when you speak to only tribe members online.
To chat, press the "chat" button on the left hand side of your screen when in your dragon village. You can go from public to tribe chat by pressing the tabs on the screen overlay.
10. What happens when I press my name on the top left?
This may not count as a real question, but I thought I'd include this in the FAQ.
When you press your name, you get another overlay with several links to other game options.
Battle History - Shows recent battles that other players have attacked your fortress. You can see who attacked you, when they attacked, and you can watch their replay, and there is a quick button to attack them back. It tells you if your defence lost or won.
Mail - The mail button shows when people send you boosts. You activate the boosts and they help production for your gold mines and sheep production. Each boost lasts 5 minutes. The mail feature may be used to send private messages in the future. You can visit other people's fortresses and send them boosts by clicking on three of their buildings.
Tribe - The tribe button sends you to the tribe menu. You can see who is in the tribe, leave the tribe, donate troops to the tribe and manage pending join requests. You can create a tribe and join an existing one. Tribes cost 50,000 gold to create.
Google Games - Allows you to sign into your Google account. This will allow you to submit your achievements into the google games cloud and allow you to log into more than one android device and access your fortress. (You can't have an iOS game transferred to android).
Friends - Log into Facebook and boost resource production, shorten build times and invite friends into your tribe! This is not required and is optional.
Achievements - Access your achievements and claim rewards!
Settings - Adjust sound, music, notifications and language options. You can contact support too.
11. Will I be able to play on android and iOS and still have my stuff?
Unfortunately, LOJACK commented on another thread about this. Android and iOS will not be sync able and you won't be able to log in on iOS and have your fortress on android. However if you connect through Google and/or gamecenter, you can save your fortress for use on multiple of iOS or android devices.
To do this, you can sign into your google account on android and log into another android device with the same credentials. You can do the same for when the iOS version comes out via gamecenter.
12. When will the iOS version of Battle Dragons come out?
The iOS version of Battle Dragons is out NOW WORLDWIDE! Check it out at:
13. How come public chat does not work properly?
Kaytar started a thread about public chatting earlier, and forum user Futumsh posted this as a comment:
When you log in you're assigned to a particular public channel. It's not one global channel or it would be too spammy to keep up with once the widespread release happens.
So, it seems that you are connected to a public chat channel instead of the global chat. That is how it works for instances in the other titles.
14. Where can I find content updates for Battle Dragons?
