Dimetraxia- new troop, or one I missed?


#1

I just bought a 15-pack of Magic keys, and one of them drew this guy:

I’m pretty sure I never missed this guy, but it’s too early for a new event, so…what’s going on here? Not that I’m complaining, mind you. :smiley:


#2

New Kingdom. Really ought to have a pop-up in game, I barely figured out it was live when I saw the blog post.


#3

Yeah, I checked which kingdom he was from after I posted, and I was like “Darkstone? Wait a minute…” Sure enough, there it was. Turns out I also got another troop from there (the Hag) that I didn’t even notice when opening the chests. Plus I finally got the Crimson Bat (YAY!) and an extra Jarl Firemantle, plus at least 4-5 other epics. A really good haul for 15 magic keys. And this will mark the first time I could potentially use the “hero” of the kingdom before beating all the quests. lol

It’s also not a guy, but a lady Dragon. :wink:


#5

Guess I haven’t gotten far enough to figure that out… Is it just me, or are all the “good” dragons female (Celestasia, Emperina), and all the “bad” ones male/undisclosed (Shadow Dragon, Bone Dragon, Venoxia)? Sheggra is the only exception to that rule I can think of, but I might have missed a hint about some others.


#7

Guess I missed/forgot that one too. lol Are there ANY dragons that are confirmed male???


#8

The bone dragon


#9

Venoxia is male. The flavour text says “his friends”

Bone Dragon is confirmed male.

Celestasia and Sheggra are confirmed female.

As Venoxia is male with a name ending on A, unless the storylines specify that Emperina and Dimetraxia are female, their cards and names do not, even though they appear to be female.


#10

Emperina at least has a female voice and I think in the story she is said to be female. Don’t know about Dimetraxia. I haven’t played her story yet. Leveling the new kingdom is more important ^^


#11

I seem to remember the story confirming Emperina as female, too.


#12

Emperina and Dimetraxia are both female. Rather than male dragons being bad (which is purely coincidence), I like to think about how most of the male dragons are Epic Bosses and therefore cooler :sunglasses:.


#13

All this focus on the gender of characters, makes me question whether there should be a gender based team bonus?? :grin:


#14

Perhaps a way to incentivise use of the hero:

For an all male team including hero: +1 attack & +1 armour
For an all female team including hero: + 1 magic


#15

So anyone have a fun team with Dimetraxia?

My current team with her is kind of lame: 2x Soothsayer, Dimetraxia, Sunweaver.

It does Ok, but just doesn’t feel like a fun team.

So far Hydra feels so much more dragon like than Dim.

Bone Dragon is confirmed male.

Indubitably.
