Basic Battle Overview

First of all, at the time of writing, there is no defense implemented in the game. All dragons will deal similar amount of damage regardless of their levels. However, the different breeds of dragons will have different skills, weakness and resistance based on their element, and different health. Generally speaking, high attack dragons have low health points, and high health dragons in Dragon City will have low attack.

Inflicted Attack Effects

The effect is based on the weakness and resistance of the element for different Dragon City moves. The damage can be divided into the following categories:

Critical (super effective): 2X damage
Normal: 1X damage
Weak: 1/2 damage
No effect: 0X damage

Hybrid Element Note

The hybrid dragons breeds in Dragon City has the default element that shows first on its stats screen. You should play accordingly based on its element type.

Legendary Dragon Note

Legendary Dragons in Dragon City can be considered as element / weakness-less. They are immune to normal attacks and have no weaknesses against any of the element attacks. The normal moves are shown with a fist and carry normal effects against all dragon types except Legendary dragon class.
