Strategy Edit

Despite having high Pierce Armour, Azure Dragons aren't as effective against buildings as they do not deal Crush Damage and their Special Attacks cannot be used against them. However, thanks to their equally high hack armor, high hit points and decent attack, they are very effective against human soldiers. Their special attack actually hits several units at once, thinning out enemy forces and making it easier for the player's army to finish them off. They also have high speed and can accompany cavalry units in late game raids. Their special attack, especially when upgraded, can deal enough damage to instantly kill worker-type units.

On maps such as Midgard or Yellow River, Azure Dragons can also be used to regain or maintain control of the water as they are amphibious and can accompany ships in naval warfare. Should players have food shortage, they can be trained in the place of their naval counterpart, the Dragon Turtle. Actually, players may choose Azure Dragons over Dragon Turtles to harass enemies regardless as they take up less population and can retreat onto land to be healed by a Monk.

Mythology Edit

Original Name -- Qinglong
Size -- 25-35 feet
Diet -- Omnivorous

The Azure Dragon, also known as Qing Long, is a mythological creature which represents the Wood element, spring, and rules over the Eastern direction, which is why it is also sometimes called the Azure Dragon of the East.

Trivia Edit

  • The Azure Dragon is one of only two amphibious Myth Units, the other being the War Salamander.
  • Their stat distribution is identical to the Chimera and White Tiger, aside from the latter's Food price.
