(Please, once again, if you disagree, please speak kindly. And please, take your time to read the whole thing)


You know that useless health bar your character has? What if that had a use?

What if you could really have an advantage over one of your friends if you trained your dragon properly, what if every dragon started off with higher stats that others?


First off, theres 4 stats: Firepower, speed, strength and endurance. HP is your viking, so it doesn't apply here.


Firepower is the amount of damage your dragon does with each fireball. This also effects how much you slow someone down in a race. Fireballs do not home in jousts, but they also recharge faster.

Speed is how fast your dragon is while flying, this also effects your dragon out of battle or out of games. If you are fast enough, you can escape fireballs or avoid melee attacks from claws or wings.

Endurance is how much of a beating your dragon can take for you, and it lowers the amount of HP that you lose when hit. This also effects how much you slow down when you take a hit in a race.

Strength effects a dragons melee power in a joust. It also effects how fast a dragon runs while grounded.


Starting stats:

Each dragon has its own starting stats, these stats do not set in stone how good a dragon will be, however. For instance, though a Nadder has low endurance at first, it could be trained to have better endurance than that of a Gronckle, or if a Gronckle were to train its speed high enough, it could be faster than any Nadder. Also, the stats would be bars on the dragons profile similiar to the current ones.

Here are the initial stats:

Deadly Nadders would have: Medium firepower, high speed, low endurance, high strength.

Gronckles would have: High firepower, low speed, high endurance, medium strength.

Hideous Zipplebacks would have: Medium firepower, medium speed, high endurance, high strength.

Monstrous Nightmares would have: High firepower, High speed, low endurance, medium strength.

Whispering Deaths would have: High firepower, medium speed, low endurance, high strength.

Thunderdrums would have:  Medium firepower, low speed, high endurance, high strength.

(feel free to fix whatever things you think seem overpowered or underpowered)



Each game would increase a stat by a little (it gets harder as the stat progresses), and sometimes it wont go higher if your dragons level isn't high enough (though at level 15-20 you can train all you want without having to level up):

Fireball Frenzy: Increases firepower and perhaps strength.

Flight School: Increases speed by quite a bit.

Races: Increases speed, but not as well as in flight school.

Eel roasting: Increases strength and endurance.

(Perhaps new training games should be implimented?)

In case you want to redo your stats, Hiccup can reset your dragon's stats for either gems or coins (I'm not sure, leaning towards gems).

Special abilities:

Each dragon has a special attack they can use, they have different effects, a hotkey can be used to switch in between attacks or a button on screen can switch them. They are:

Deadly Nadder: If you press the button to switch you can use sharp spines, which deal low initial damage, but damages the enemy over time.

Gronckle: If you hold down the fire button or hotkey, the Gronckle will charge up a shot that is much harder to avoid and does a lot more damage, it takes a little longer to reload than normal shots however.

Hideous Zippleback: If the special button is pressed, one of the heads latches onto the enemy and keeps them from escaping while the other head attacks visously, after a few seconds they are released and the attack can't be used for another 30 seconds.

Monstrous Nighmare: If the special button is pressed, the nightmare will set itself on fire for 10 seconds, which will cause damage if nearby the other dragon and will also absorb 50% of all fireballs thrown at them.

Whispering Deaths: When the special button is pressed, their teeth begin to spin very rapidly, and if you come in contact with the other dragon it will do very heavy damage, during this time they can also go faster.

Thunderdrum: Can stun enemies with normal attack 20% of the time, making them vunerable for a time.




After training, you and your dragon can engage in friendly (or not friendly) battles and use fireballs and melee attacks to fight the other viking until their health is depleted. Melee attacks automatically activate when you get close enough. You can also use obsticles to block fireballs. Whoever depletes the opposing vikings heath first wins.


Targeting recticle: You can also set it so you use the mouse to fire fireballs.


Thank you for reading this, it means a lot because it took so long to write it. If you haven't read it, please do, its only the paragraphs that make it look big...


If you want this in the game, please show your support! It would make me happy and get it closer to being in the game.

I know that nadders have the hottest fire, but I have to balance the dragons, you know? Also, since most people have deadly nadders, it wouldn't be fair for them to have the greatest stats.

Thanks for the feedback!

This is very similar to the How to train your dragon game for Xbox 360, Wii or Ps3. But it would be awesome if that will be included in SoD. I support this idea, even if I'm not so pleased with the fact that the vikings from Berk will fight each other. What if we could fight wild dragons, or other tribes to defend Berk? Anyways, I support this idea.

That was yet another idea I considered, being able to defend berk in singleplayer or more advanced, longer waves in the normal areas.

Thanks for the reply, and nice suggestion.

Dragon Jousting and dragon combat

Hey guys,


(please read this full throuh before you reply)


I like the idea of dragon jousting but I have an idea of my own! Ever seen the old TV show called Dragon Booster? It was one of my favorite shows before it was cancled. They had this game called "drag ball" which was kind of like a combination of soccer and football with dragons involved in teams of two. the object of the game was to get the ball into a goal without getting it stollen from you by the opposing team. you could fight hand to hand combat style or have the dragons duke it out themselves. (keep in mind these were dinosaur like dragons with no wings and no fire-breath). for what i have in mind for the useless life bar is this: a dragon sport I like to call dragon bash! It's similar to drag ball in a lot of ways: two dragons per team with a mix of abilities - for example nadders with night furies, monstrus nightmares with skrill and so on. players use a leather ball (which hiccup will have to fireproof somehow) with the dragon riders mounted on their dragons. this will be more like horse polo than a dragon booster style drag ball game since the riders will not be allowed to dismount  - this game will be played mid air after all! they have to keep the ball in the air unless they are going for a goal post similar to that seen in the Harry Potter movies on the quidditch pitch. either the dragons or their human riders can make a goal - as long as the nadders don't puncture the ball of course! Also, dragon stats will be the same no matter what: basically whatever stats u have when you go into the game are what you have when you play. there will be powerups like speed boosts and the usual racing boosts of course but those are the only ways to change your stats! No cheaters allowed!


Let me know what you think of this game and if it might work!
