On Sept 29 I noticed something unusual about these dragons. They have become completely glitched. Most of the time they are invisible especially when they attack including mine. Another is that they turn upside down, sideways and face in the opposite direction. Also I've seen them fly upside down, sideways and backwards to a different space. I tried different tactics levels and found that only Whoolly Howls are affected by this glitch. They're even affected when my dragons attack them. It was quite amusing to watch my Skrill fire a bolt of lighting and the Whoolly Howl just flips over backwards as if overreacting to the hit. Not only that, but they hover outside the blue circle, some a few spaces where they are supposed to be. I wonder if other people have experienced this glitch. To clarify this only happens in Dragon Tactics. It wasn't like this before the glowing algae update so I assume it might have something to do with it.

Main Viking: Victor


Viking Age: As old as our chief Hiccup (Which I believe is twenty. Even though the game doesn't age up our avatars. In the last season of Race to the Edge the gang's age was disclosed as nineteen years. So in the second movie it's safe to assume they're twenty.)


Title: the Fierce


Rank: 50


Training Title: Senior Dragon Trainer


Clan: None. I prefer to be a lone rider.


Tin Trophies: 93, Lumber ate the others


Dragon Army Size: 77, one dragon per species although there are some doubles.


Dragon Species Adopted: All of them; except Toothless.


Battle Dragon: Any. I train them with a keen eye and steady aim.


Dragon Tactics Gear and Strategy: All T3 Bewilderbeast armor (fully upgraded) except the helmet (Exquisite Groncicle, fully upgraded) and the shield (Exquisite Boulder, fully upgraded). Armed with T3 Intense Defender Axe (fully upgraded), Frozen Sword of Winter (fully upgraded) and Volatile Mace of Winter. My role is tank and healer. I lure the hunters and wild dragons and keep their attention on me while my dragon buddies fight from a safe distance. I'm also a crazy dodger!


Dragon Tactics Team: It depends on the situation. When I'm Biting Bruises or there's a Snowy Strife I can always count on Surge (Titan Skrill), Icebound (Titan Snow Wraith) or Squall (Titan Woolly Howl) and which ever dragon I'm training, to watch my back. But if we find ourselves amongst a Winter Brawl or a Shivering Scrap, Surge and Icebound will team up with the explosive Titan Hideous Zippleback Vent and Flare!


Currently Training: Murk (Smothering Smokebreath)




Fierce is a nice title. It strikes a hint of dread and warning to those who intend to do harm to the people of Berk. When I was young and lanky I was called by the less flattering title Victor the Frail.


I was born into the world at the worst time possible. On the coldest night of the season during a dragon raid. My father was killed protecting my mother and I. He fought bravely defending the village. A determined Monstrous Nightmare would have destroyed us all if it hadn't been for the valiant Vikings guarding those injured seeking refuge in the Great Hall.


Due to the cold I caught an illness. No one expected me to survive through the first winter. My mother did not give in to despair but persevered to nurture her newborn.


At the age of five I was beginning to understand the world around me. I also harbored an intense hatred for the creature's responsible for our constant losses especially that of my father. It became my ambition to be a heroic dragon fighter. But my body was too weak even for my age. I occasionally would catch illnesses which required my mother to frequently hike all the way to Gothi's hut to treat my ailments. This was a regular occurrence year after year. My mother did not allow me to go anywhere too far from our hut for fear I might perish from exposure of short change of temperature.


After suffering for five more years I got fed up with my frailty. I still couldn't lift a hammer or swing an axe. People were starting to call me "the Frail". Not anymore. I will not go down in my family's history as a weakling. So my training began. I made a exercise routine that strengthened both body and mind. Eat a healthy diet, no matter how tough and tasteless the food is. Running up to and from Gothi's hut got the blood pumping, mostly because I had to transport her medical supplies. Astrid was a good sparring partner, she taught me several combat techniques with Snotlout as the target dummy. Playing pranks with the Thorston twins sharpened my mind as well as studying the Book of Dragons and other books with Fishlegs. If I ever was going to fight those fire fuming beasts I needed to know about what armor and weapons to use. Gobber's smithy was a good place to learn. He and Hiccup taught me some valuable skills of the trade before my mother dragged me back to the hut.


By the time of my fifteenth birthday I noticed I've grown a considerable amount of toned muscle. My ailments seemed to disappear too. My mother was more relaxed and didn't fret when I left the hut. I was permitted to apply for Dragon Training. It was rigorous. Some of us almost got blasted by a clumsy Gronkle. I'd like to say I trained with Hiccup and the gang but no; I was with a different group of teens. Valery the Bright was a dragon nerd. She had spent more time studying the Book of Dragons than any of us would care to. Her face is innocent but her hammer is best to be avoided. Dirk the Daring was one of the most promising students in class. He was tall, strong and a bit bossy. Actually, a lot bossy. He saw me as a rival and challenged to fight when the opportunity presented itself. Kira Courageous. A strange girl from... she doesn't recall. Perhaps an island somewhere in the archipelago. She is a very strong and knowledgeable person who can be easily underestimated.


We almost graduated that year. Hiccup befriended a dragon, a Night Fury, the rarest of them all. And not only that. He discovered the Dragon's Nest and defeated what was causing our misery. I heard it was a gigantic mountain sized beast called the Red Death. Since then we had made peace with the dragons. However, my ambitions were crushed. At first, I never joined along with the village when they adopted dragons of their own. The death of my father and the lingering grudge was hard to let go.


One day I decided to join the school. The goal was to drown the bad memories and the hatred of dragons by understanding them for more than their destructive capabilities. The dragon I adopted was a Monstrous Nightmare. This one hatchling set my destiny. One that I would be most crucial to.

And another concern about Dragon Tactics

I also like to add that the Shivering Scrap level seems to have missing barriers (rock piles, fire pits). The shadows are there but nothing blocking. My dragons and enemies can pass through them. I used a Snow Wraith to attack a Hunter on the other side of the nonexistent rock pile near the top of the map. It immediately froze the game. Then the screen turned white. I knew it was the game because I could still turn it off without rebooting my computer. And there is supposed to be a nest too but there isn't. All I see is the flag when there's an objective for it. I enjoy these levels alot. It's fun to be with more than one dragon at a time so they can all gain xp. Hope there are more game modes like this coming in the future.

I honestly have no idea how to deal with this. But Sod has so many glitches now, that I can't even enter the game to see the new updates. But welcome to the forums, Victor!


Hi! Welcome to my signature!

I'm Racer, a beserker. I am from the clan, The Gaurdians of Dragon Cove. I am an experienced dragon rider, as me and my Slithersong Melody, Sword Stealer Spear, and Terrible Terror Dizzy,  have teamed up with Valka to find and save injured dragons.


I often am found at battles, as I would do anything to save dragons. I am most like heather, astrid, tuffnut and valka mixed up. My double axe is just like heathers, only it has some improvments inspired by hiccups dragon sword, and Valka's staff. I would describe myself as brave, secretive, calm, quiet, independent and clever. 


Me! ( real life )


Cyber saftey issues with that...
