I’ve got some challenge and theme team ideas that I’m sure will make fighting more enjoyable. Just trying to brute force your way through every battle gets dull very fast. I love strategy, since I’ve played a lot of rpgs in my life, and I’ve come up with some ways to challenge yourself!
- Go monotype! Use 3 dragons whose primary (defending) elements are the same, like a night wind, durukuru and leviathan (all defend with war.) One dragon can be the demise of your entire team, but use them well and switch when needed, and not even a Yggdrasil can stand in the way of a well- managed light team.
- Elemental trinities (element 1 < element 2 < element 3 < element 1.) They include: terra + electric/dark + metal, flame + ice/nature + war/sea and pure + legend + primal. You can balance out your team, and almost nothing will stand in your way... except having one of your dragons faint, and you lose your coverage.
- Luck. Use dragons with luck based attacks, like high commander (wave may give a second turn), boulder (attack may hit a different amount of times) and ironscales (attack may deal damage to all dragons) and see how much RNG hates you.
- Unbalanced team. Use a heroic and two single elementals (terra, flame, sea, nature, electric, ice, metal). Will opponents not want to face your one powerhouse, or will they see your other two dragons as easy prey?
- Commitment. Use a dragon that you think has unseen potential, and build a team around them, covering each dragons’ weaknesses and considering their moves. You’d be surprised at the wonders that can come out of this! It’s how I use four elementals to beat heroics!
- Family. Use palette swaps (like striking, swamp and dapper or ironheart, movie fanatic and gelatin) or a “group” (fae dragons, VIP twins, war hybrids, etc.) Their similarities mean they share common weaknesses, but are meant to work in synergy.
If you end up using one of these teams, I’d like to hear how using them went. Did you have fun?
Almost forgot to mention-NO HEROICS ON A TEAM OTHER THAN LUCK AND UNBALANCED! Just a thing to kick up the difficulty.
