One of the key game elements in Dragon City is called “Elements”. It influences many different aspects of the game like breeding and combat.
So, what are all the elements in Dragon City?
A total of 20 different elements were added to Dragon City.
Dragons have four attacks and every attack is associated with a single element.
Depending on the defending element (first element of the dragon) of the opponent dragon, the attack will deal critical damage (double damage), weak damage (half damage) or have no effect (zero damage) towards the defending dragon. All other unmentioned elements will fare well against this attack.
A dragon can have 1 or more elements. The first element is its defending element and dictates its weaknesses towards other attacking elements, resistance and immunity.
All other elements are considered secondary and only come into play when used during combat (most of the time).
Opposite elements are not directly breedable and will interact differently in combat.
Performs weak attack and defense towards its opposite element (Terra, Ice, War)
Performs strong attack and defense towards its opposite element (Metal, Flame, Sea)
Performs strong attack, but weak defense towards its opposite element (Dark, Light)
Performs no special attack or defense effect towards its opposite element (Nature, Electric)
Info About Elements
Although dragons can have a maximum of 4 elements, only the element that appears first indicates its vulnerability. The strength of each element corresponds to a move and represents what type of dragon an individual has. For this reason, it is optimal to have 4 elements as they correspond with 4 types of moves.
Primary elements are the first elements a dragon can have. The first element of a dragon indicates which type of moves it will be weak to, while the other elements indicate what moves it learns.
Can’t Breed Some Elements Together…
Some elements are designed to not mix. These are called opposite elements. One example of this is fire and ice – they don’t mix at all.
Some elements have an opposite element, and because of this single-element dragons of these types cannot be bred directly. Dragons with multiple elements can breed in combinations of these elements, though.
When you play some dragon city events, or even open your daily calendar, you will eventually receive some Element tokens which can be used to upgrade your habitats past level 2.
