Welcome, fellow Beta Players! In the top-level of your Steam Apps\common\Dragon Commander Dragon Commander directory is a manual that tells you what all the upgrades do, and what your Dragon Skills are.

There isn't any way to see these in-game as far as I know at the moment, and understanding how best to use your Dragon is important.

There are three different types of Dragons, each with it's own skill loadout:

Sabre Dragon
  • 1) Acid Blaze - The Dragon's glands add acid to its fireballs, which do extra damage on impact and damage over time.
  • 2) Call of Valour - The Dragon roars defiantly around him, causing all friendly units to gain an increase in damage output and armour for a limited amount of time.
  • 3) Mass Restoration - The Dragon replenishes the health of target allied units and all friendly units in its vicinity.
  • 4) Bastion - The Dragon casts a defensive shield around itself, increasing the amount of punishment it can take for a limited amount of time.
  • 5) Unveil - Allows the Dragon to see through enemiesí disguises, revealing cloaked units in an area around it.
  • 6) Berserker Roar - The Dragon roars ferociously in an area around him, causing all friendly units to gain a huge increase to attack speed, but taking increased damage in return.
  • 7) Salvation - The Dragon heals a portion of its health over a small period of time.
  • 8) Aegis - The Dragon casts a protective spell around an allied unit, significantly increasing its defence for a set amount of time.



Mountain Dragon
  • 1) Breaching Fire - The Dragon overheats its breath, dealing increased damage to medium and heavy units, such as Devastators or Armours.
  • 2) Advance! - The Dragon invigorates those around him, significantly increasing all friendly unitsí movement speed.
  • 3) Dragon Heart/Eye of the Patriarch - Unleashes a single, massive fireball dealing extreme punishment in an area of effect.
  • 4) Pillar of Flame - The Dragon casts a column of consuming fire that deals damage to units within its vicinity for its duration.
  • 5) Dread Roar - The Dragon strikes fear into the hearts of many, paralyzing them in place and stopping them from acting for a limited amount of time.
  • 6) Friends with Benefits - The Dragon casts a protective shield on a friendly unit, which reduces damage taken and, in turn, the Dragon receives healing whenever the unit deals damage.
  • 7) Sabotage - The Dragon fires a burst of energy that disables the primary function of an enemy building or unit. This will stop the building from being able to construct or research for a limited amount of time. It will also stop enemy units from being able to attack or use skills.
  • 8) Ray of Power - A ray is created between the Dragon and an allied unit, giving the unit a huge damage increase as long as the link between both remains.



Zephyr Dragon
  • 1) Purifying Flames - The Dragon invokes a healing breath, infusing its fireballs with a restorative power capable of mending the wounds of friendly units.
  • 2) Crippling Roar - The Dragon roars powerfully in an area around him, rendering all enemies incapable of attacking or using skills for a limited amount of time.
  • 3) Charm - The Dragon casts a domination spell upon an enemy unit, gaining total control over it for a limited amount of time.
  • 4) Pillar of Restoration - The Dragon casts a pillar of restoring energy that reaches skyward and heals all the units in its vicinity for its duration.
  • 5) Cleansing Charge - Cleanses friendly units within the Dragonís area of effect from negative effects such as Fear, Sabotage, etc.
  • 6) Unveil - Allows the Dragon to see through enemiesí disguises, revealing cloaked units in an area around it.
  • 7) Chameleon Hide - The dragon almost completely disappears from sight for a limited amount of time.
  • 8) Inspire - The Dragon inspires a friendly unit to increase its attack speed and movement speed significantly.

Before anyone makes a Steam guide out of this: as this is beta, all this stuff may change. One of the reasons for beta is not only find bugs and gather opinions, but also collect data for balancing smile

Yes, I know it's not final. I had to take screenshots of each of the Dragon's skills and then match the icons to the manual to figure them all out myself, so I thought I'd put this information here so the other testers didn't have to.
