    Malefic Breath doesnt belong on a mythic dragon, what a waste

      A far bigger waste is an Archer Resist on an Obsidian Dragon. Do archer towers event exist at that level?

      Archers might see a comeback once you see more and more Necryx's walking over full elemental tower bases.
      (Comeback as in being more popular. They were always a solid source of damage.)

    They look rather underwhelming

      Was there a vote on player generated spell sets? Must have been......cause wow. "No vowels" part 2, 3, 4 and 5 - and no, I'm no where near these drags yet, thank goodness. Artwork doesn't make up for less than useful spell sets, sorry.

        What are the stats on the new spells?
        • Isolation: How much is the targeted tower weakened (both attack and def like Crumble)? How about the nearby towers, and how many (3-5)?
        • Light Speed: How much is the hunter ammo discounted? How much is the hunter's damage reduced?

        It'll be neat to see what the dragons look like in-game art-wise, though. Live vicariously through other people?

        Girasol body work is just 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 i ALWAYS wanted that dragon. But the spells are ewwwww.

        Noc still the king. Let's see how flash and light speed turns out in game.

        Cant be such a disappointment

          Bahahahaha what Tony Said!!!

          And give Gira a white malefic breath 😖

      • #7
        I think everything that needs to be said has already been said.

        1) Noct still best dragon in the tier.
        2) Malefic Breath should not be on a Mythic dragon, period. (It could also be said that it does not belong on Any Dragon)
        3) They look rather underwhelming (spell-wise) High cost dragons should have a little shelf life.

        lastly - Fire Turret Resist on a hunter is pretty terrible as well

        We have gone through this in Garnet and Emerald. Mythics are just expensive breeders for the one new good dragon from the next tier. Hugely disappointing.

        Would have been so awesome to go out of the box on Girasol and make the base attack a two finger, two-stream of fire attack, targeting 2 separate towers at once, at something like 90% of normal warrior attack power. Or combine them for a single stream attack at 150%-180%. But...hey...woohoo. Art is nice, as usual.

          Everytime I reread this idea it gets cooler and cooler. They really missed out on a cool concept right here.

          Currently if you hold down fingers over two towers simultaneously the warrior will switch flames between the two so that they come out in very rapid but erratic staccato bursts. I haven't tried to collect any numbers to see what drop in efficiency there is because of the extremely rapid target switching, though.
          By empiric observation there is a huge drop in damage done, although that may just be a function of the different method of damage application - burn one (mostly) down before moving on, vs wildly spraying flames all over, which I think most would agree is inherently less effective.

          Full on multi-targeting by a multiple headed warrior has my vote for idea of the year - that would be freaking awesome!

          Actually only the left head is really pumping out flames. Regular flame thrower appears to be coming from somewhere in between, but its actually from the left head, lol. Right head is there for... cosmetic purposes lol

        Those dragons look ridiculous ....so now can you or anyone from PG actually respond to all the posts that actually mean something to the game here on forum? Just curious that's all..

          Flash and Light Speed look underwhelming on paper. Neither are white so can't avoid rage drain(?) Reduced dragon speed on Flash reminds me of Dissipating on Xenot (eww). I honestly hope they play out more effectively in the game. Both hunters appear way weaker than Noctua. Really disappointed.

            Maybe the white version will come in a future divine

          I'm super curious how Lumi turns out.

          On paper it tells me that he can't cloak, has a SHITTY resist (I use with expert emeralds let alone with my obisidians fire turrets even super shots to build up rage duh) and can't heal.

          Maybe a clean up dragon for Nec.

          Maf has consume at least and a great resist.

          I'll find out on Wednesday i guess.

            Looks like a bunch of lame breeders.

              So, Flash is a reworked version of evasion, one of the most reviled spells in the game? Granted, it's cheaper and the dragon flies slower instead of faster, which are good changes I suppose. But I'm guessing that Mafic will be the 3rd mythic hunter in a row clearly inferior to a legendary in its tier.

                Flash - 65% chance to dodge attacks...is this projectiles? All damaging attacks? Everything but flaks like elemental mayhem? Mage supers? I forsee a lot of complaints about a spell that works off of rng.

                Light Speed - whats the point of reduced ammo cost if the damage is also reduced? What is the ratio (how does the dmg per sec change if at all)?

                Maybe theyll end up being decent but on paper and without knowing specifics, they are not very alluring, at least to me.

                PGJared

                Oh, and Im really hoping these are crude representations of what the dragons will actually look like, because wow, they are hard to look at.

                  Hmm

                  I have reservations about the new dragons

                  I see very little skill wise that will take down defended lvl 50 farms?

                  Warrior: No way to mitigate rage drain, so bleh
                  No way to regen health - his Isolation spell should work like a shield, but since its blue.....

                  Malefic breath doesn't belong on anything, its junk. Let alone obsidian mythics.

                  The hunters - I've never understood a hunter standing still above towers, you run out of ammo and get slaughtered. I don't understand the dissipate type of spells - look at xenot - they are essentially junk and will get you killed.


                  Surely the highest level dragons should be balanced for war where people are actively defending?


                  Seems like very expensive breeders again - very disappointing

                    Art work: +++++!
                    And there the praise ends. The spells! No white spell on any of them ... not even on the mythics? Malefic breath is completely useless as was dissipate and now we have a clone of that named Flash. As already said, very expensive breeders. I'm very disappointed.

                      Dissipate is a slow cloak + some ammo recharge + aoe blast vs Flash >.> closer to Evasion but moving more slowly instead.
