War Dragons Wikia

Dragon abilities are the special skills dragons have. These skills vary per dragon and are usually specific to certain classes. Abilities may be offensive, defensive or passive.

Dragon abilities are classified into color classes. Typically, active abilities' icons immediately tell the color class, while passive abilities' icons have a grey shield surrounding the orange icon.

Red abilities can be cast but will have no effect when it targets a building inside the protection zone of a Red Mage Tower. E.g., Chain Lightning can be cast on a building inside the protection zone of a Red Mage Tower, however the spell will do no damage, there will be a pop up text "Blocked" and the spell will still consume dragon rage. There are exceptions, such as Summon Warrior, where the spell can be cast and the spectral Warrior Dragon will still be summoned despite being inside a Red Mage Tower protection zone or Self Destruct, which still does full damage to buildings outside the protection zone of a Red Mage Tower.

Blue abilities cannot be cast once the dragon enters the protection zone of a Blue Mage Tower (unlike red abilities which can still be cast although they will be blocked by the Red Mage Tower).

Chain Lightning.png

Blue Cloak 1 Dragon becomes invisible and cannot be targeted until it attacks.

Unique properties: spell gains a 3 second cool-down when interrupted by dragon attack. Any shots that are still mid-air when used, will disappear and not damage dragon. Blue Mages cancel the effect and cool-down entirely, enabling skilled hunter flyers to 'blink', disabling a blue mage before cloaking to dodge damage, which gets blocked by the blue mage last second; delay from towers 're-targeting' the dragon allows a small gap before using cloak again, now available again with the blue mage gone.
