Updated info for Mehaten – Mythic Warrior

Okay, so we have some updated info for Mehaten here. Specifically more on what his abilities do. Though we haven’t seen Mehaten in action, he sounds pretty damn awesome. One important thing to note is that he has regular rage activated abilities as well as Solar Energy.

Massive new update for 2.50

Well, half of this is live for now as there are now systems in place for towers to go all the way up to level 40! The rest of the updates are due between September 13th – September 16th, and if we know PG at all we would expect it to be closer to the 16th!

At the time of writing, totems, fire turrets and ice turrets are still limited to level 35. Also, new builder hut levels, storage hut levels and farms/mills also get a few more levels to 29.

The most exciting new features of 2.50 though are the introduction of new dragons in a tier called Sapphire tier. These come complete with a number of special abilities exclusive to Sapphire, but what is new is a new level of dragon – The Mythic Dragon.

Sapphire tier will include 2 Legendary Hunters, 2 Legendary Sorcerers and 2 Legendary Warriors, plus a single Mythic Warrior.

2 more Sapphire tier dragons are in the works, with an unknown release date.

Mythic Warrior

This dragons will feature a unique, complex spell set and new mechanics: One passive, one conditional, one defensive, and one offensive ability.

His normal attack as well as his defensive and offensive abilities allow him to build up a resource called Solar Energy. When Solar Energy is full, he can activate his Radiance Ability.

Activating Radiance transforms this dragon into his upgraded form with empowered abilities for the remainder of the battle.

The information we got was unclear, but these are the new Mythic Abilities:

Nocturnal Fissure:  Opens a swirling vortex in front of him for 2 seconds which destroys projectiles and channels a portion of that damage to health to himself.

Crumble to Dust: Turns the earth at the base of the island’s towers into swirling sand that creeps up the sides of each tower. Affected towers deal reduced damage and take increased damage.

 

Now accepting donations

If you are avid users of the site, you would have noticed that we have had a little downtime recently. This is purely down to the increased bandwidth being used by an increasing umber of users.

To cover these costs, we have had to purchase a costlier plan to help keep the site up at all times – and to cover the costs just needs just a few dollars a month from just a few users to keep us up. If you think the site is worth keeping up, I’d be delighted for the support.

Dawn of the Runes

15/01/2016 Update

Check out Twitch – Pixxel on Thursday 21st at 3pm for the exclusive first look at the rune system!

We have no idea what is in store for War Dragons over the coming month with the recent announcement of the Dawn of the Runes.

An ancient power has awakened. Runes from the Age of Order are sparking with long lost magic. Dragons are growing restless, as archaic magic surges throughout the land. Could this be the power Gustav’s army has been tapping into?

This month introduces a brand new feature ready for you to harness – Runes! Keep an eye out for Runes that will be dropping throughout the game. As January unfolds, your most clever scholars will be studying how to harness this power to make your dragons and base more formidable than ever before. Prepare yourself this month as:

  • Starting with our War of Infinite Battles event, Runes will start dropping from treasure chests as prizes.
  • Runes will be dropping at an increased rate for this month’s events to celebrate the Dawn of Runes.
  • We will be releasing a set of Runes exclusive to this event.

What will these Runes do?

Will they be permanent or temporary in use?

Things could start getting quite complex in achieving the base defense of your dreams or fine tuning your dragon to be even more effective against certain base types. We certainly welcome an extra layer of strategy in choosing how to use runes effectively, though we have concerns that it may increase the gap between players on the fremium model vs the cash players.
