Nightshade is definitely a great dragon to have in your roster. With excellent abilities and a great resist, it’s hard to pick a fault with this dragon.
Cloak when used by an expert player can allow you to take out a massive portion of a players base and set it up for a follower. The lack of Steal Essence is excused with the addition of Invert. At least 50% of Steal Essence use is surely to aim for Reverse Projectiles and Invert allows you to use it at will for a cheap cost of 1 rage.
Crumble to Dust, although expensive compared to Fireball and Chain Lightning, allows for mass destruction to 5 towers at once, although there are times when aiming it seems tricky.
Finally, Resist Lightning is hugely popular at high level play.
Nightshade is only won during the Season ending December 5th by accumulating enough Sigils on branch 2. You need just over 17,000 Sigils in order to evolve him to Sapphire level.
