Droyeuse: To breed or not to breed?

08/01/2016 Edit: The level caps have now been reduced in line with the current den requirements for the respective dragons (Sobek and Droyeuse).

Let’s face it, the last few events have taken their toll and the last thing you want to do is figure out whether all that work was worthwhile or not.

Here are the details:

Droyeuse is breedable with around 69,000 tokens. From all reports, you also get Elixis when you breed him.

If you are level 63 but less than 70

You should be able to breed him in your incubator if it is high enough level. If you are lower level than this, be thankful of Sobek as he seems to be shaping up to be a decent enough dragon.

At around level 63 you will be on your way to breeding gold dragons, if you haven’t already. That means that you will most probably have a few green legendary dragons and Amarok/Durga.

Amarok will be capped at level 24, which means he will have attack power of 73k and health of 791k

If you breed Droyeuse, he will have a starting attack power of 70k and health of 760k, which will be capped until you reach den 16.

This means that by blowing your tokens at level 63, you will end up with 60,000 tokens used on a dragon that is actually worse than Amarok (since Amarok has two resists, explosive shield and cure poison at this time).

If you are level 70+

If you are level 70 you are still going to want to consider if you want Droyeuse or not. By this time you will be well into breeding gold dragons, so by taking 60k tokens out of your pool you will be removing your progress towards any of the other gold dragons like Whalegnawer and Consurgens. At level 70, he only has access to Intimidating Roar, which his breeding buddy Sobek also has. There’s obviously a bit of difference in health/attack when comparing Sobek and Droyeuse at this time, but when you add 60k tokens into the mix you can easily start to regret your move.

If you also consider that with 50k tokens you can get both Yersinu and Bander, you probably start kicking yourself hard.

TL:DR

Don’t get Droyeuse unless you have nothing better to spend your tokens on. Since the den caps are higher than all other dragons in the game, it’s a complete waste of time waiting for him to reach the dizzy heights of the other legendary dragons.

  1. Droy is a hot mess. The archer resist is great, but explosive shield is useless against level 30 towers. You already get two resists with Khrysos, plus the intimidating roar. Go for Khrysos as your backup drag to Con or Whale.

  2. Terrific analysis, couldn’t agree more. Looking forward to joining the ranks of the high leveled and full-armied where it makes sense to breed and level this dragon.

  3. I got yerinsu and firactus for around 44k tokens. Cheaper than droy and I can breed consurgens and khrysos once I get yerinsu to breedable.
    Droy seems to be a good dragon if you could have him expert below level 84. You would think with all the work they require to earn him and even the death penguin, that they’d be able to be expert below the current standard 84 since they are special. Then and only then would droy seem useful. Since like wolves stated, explosive shield is junk vs level 30 towers.

    1. Today, Dragon Punch stated the following:

      We’re still in the process of reviewing the level caps and leveling restrictions for these recently released dragons.

  4. Today, Hext told us that the level caps on Droyeuse and Sobek would be coming down to match the levels of their equivalent tier dragons.
    There was much rejoicing, so let’s consider how this affects the original article:

    Basically, at level 63 to 69, you will want to consider this very carefully. Droyeuse will only be level 1 for you, but the benefit is that by the time you are level 70 he will have accumulated enough XP to level up to the new den caps. You also may have missed out on great dragons like Yersinu and Bander by using the tokens here.

    After level 70, we would assume that you already have Yersinu and Bander, and the road to the legendary dragons will have started. Choosing to go for Droyeuse here is not a bad option, as he will be on equal footing with the other gold legendaries and isn’t half bad. Abombs confirmed tokens cost at a shade under 69k, so you will have to weigh up getting 1 gold legendary earlier as a benefit against getting two gold dragons for 100k.

    We think that going the 100k route and getting the two gold dragons is by far the better option even with the changes!
