War Dragons - Codex Collection

 

 

Coatl

Rainbow Serpent

 
War Dragons Summerflare Season - Coatl

Shimmering feathers reflect the power of the sky.

 

Pronounced: Ko-ah-t

 

Legends speak of a Rainbow Serpent that keeps watch over the Windblown Shroud. Travelers and merchants tell stories of falling victim to bandits or dangerous wasteland predators only to be rescued by a powerful sky-serpent gliding on brilliant wings. While some dismiss these tales as fantasy, they too pray to the skies for Coatl when all hope seems lost.

 

Discount Information: Coatl’s entire Season branch will be discounted by 50% for two weeks from Wednesday, June 6th until Tuesday, June 19th.

Cuauhtli

Wasteland Raptor

 

War Dragons Summerflare Season - Cuauhtli

A desert scavenger that pilfers its treasure from fallen dragons.

 

Pronounced: K-wow-t-lee

 

Many dragons of the Windblown Shroud are adorned with armor and jewelry, given as gifts by the humans the dragons protect. Cuauhtli, however, offers no sanctuary or security. Instead, the vulture-dragon prowls the desert wastes, taking any glittering treasure that catches its eye. Dragons and humans alike avoid the desert whenever possible, not wishing to be added to Cuauhtli’s collection.

Huitzil

Champion of the Wastes

 

War Dragons Summerflare Season - Huitzil

The fanatical vanguard of the Windblown Shroud.

 

Pronounced: Weet-zeel

 

The city of Chitezca is regarded as the most prosperous city throughout the Shroud, thriving from an advanced irrigation system and well-traveled trade lanes. Their wealth is coveted by many raiders who seek to pillage the city, that is until they encounter Chitezca’s draconic champion, Huitzil. With the deafening sound of a thunderclap, Huitzil descends on unsuspecting attackers accompanied by a fury of lightning bolts. Arrows deflect harmlessly off Huitzil’s jade armor as the champion’s furious dragonfire envelopes hopeless raiders. Nobody has attacked Chitezca twice.

 

Mythic Earth Warrior

Summerflare Season Branch Updates

 

Summerflare Season Structure

 

During the Springveil Season, we introduced a new dual-tiered structure for the Season branches. In previous seasons, it was required for all three legendary Dragon branches to be unlocked before the Mythic branch was available. In Springveil, the dual tier structure meant that only two Dragons’ branches needed to be fully completed in order to unlock the Mythic branch. As a new part of the Summerflare Season, we are slightly modifying the way branch structure will work, specifically in regards to how the Legendary Dragon branches will unlock the Mythic Dragon branch. We’re taking things one steps further with our branch structure; completing one branch of either Coatl or Cuauhtli will unlock the first half of Huitzil’s branch up to the Platinum Stone. After that, the rest of Huitzil’s branch can be unlocked by completed the other Dragon’s branch.

 

For example: Let’s say you’re interested in going for Coatl when the Summerflare season begins. Once you’ve fully completed Coatl’s branch through the Harbinger Tier evolution stone, Huitzil’s branch will unlock for you. Huitzil’s branch will only be available up through the Dragon’s Platinum Tier evolution stone. Then, you’ll need to fully complete Cuauhtli’s branch in order to unlock the rest of Huitzil’s branch.

 

The other branch of the Summerflare season will not represent the updates noted above. Similar to the Springveil season, both of the Legendary Dragon branches from the second wave will be needed to be claimed in order to unlock the Veteran Rider branch!
