When the Hidden World came out/was close to coming out (here in the States at least), I had a surge of ideas for things I wanted to do on the forums. One such idea was doing a review of all the Titan Wings in the game so far! However, I put "Dragon" instead of "Titan Wing" in the event I cover non-Titan dragons (which knowing me, I probably will in the near future). Feel free to leave your own opinions about the Titans! ^^

Somehow interested in my opinion on dragons? I made a Dragon Review Here: My Dragon Review

 

Itching for a request or two? Maybe even 3? I have some art threads open!

 

Interested in Shiny Hunting? I've made a whole thread dedicated to it here!

 

Dragon Gallery!

 

Probably my most favorite screenshot that I ever took of Papa. <3

 

Just another flight with the big guy himself!

 

My first School of Dragons GIF. . .dedicated to Papa. Sounds about right!

 

"How are you all holding up over there?"

 

Zzzzzzz. . .

 

"eme [this is a face by the way] Is this where you've been this whole time?" (He came swimming up to me while I was at the Training Grounds)

 

 

Raito and Doctor Alex, both drawn by me!

 

 

Sorry Dagur but I don't think the General agress with that "clever as a Skrill" statement. . .

 

 

. . .it's a bit difficult watching for danger when you can't get near the telescope.

 

He checked on the gigantic Hobblegrunt babies a billion times before finally moving forward. -_- Those Hobblegrunt parents were NOT happy.

 

A very happy General Moonlight. . .or angry. No one can say for sure.

 

Papa no, don't--aaannd it's too late.

 

 

 

Requests From Others!

"*Banshee screech* You look so cute!" - Comet Burst

-Insert Wise dying on the inside here-

 

Drawn by the terrific TosiLohi!

 

 

Sometimes Papa's ego becomes as big as Jupiter. . .screenshot edited by Zeezur!

 

 

Happy wife, happy life. Made by Snowflake12298!

 

 

The main character for my story made into a beautiful Snowy Griffin. Made by LissaFish!

A cute Papa headshot made by HoneyCloudy!

 

As much as I love the big guy, it's fun to occasionally spite him. ewe Made/edited by SilverNight!

 

       

 

Drago once said the strength of will over others is true strength. . .and Hiccup says friendship is true strength. . .but they're both wrong. Cuteness is the one and only true strength! These faces will be the death of evil, I'm telling you. Made all by Zitka!

 

 

Yikes! Ezra looks angry! Made by AndreaEaston!

 

Hobbleslicer, the male Tingecutter made my AndreaEaston!

 

 

A truly fuzzy Moon made/edited by HoneyCloudy!

 

You read all that? Wowie, thanks! Here's two Hugh Jackman and Hiccup gifs to represent my face.

Format, Rating System and Schedule

Schedule

I'll be doing 1-2 Titans a week minimum. One week I might want to do a dozen but the following week, I might only do just the one. If I decide to do the non-Titan versions, they'll sort of just be a filler for the week and won't have a set schedule; just whenever I want to do a review but hold off on the Titans. I'm not doing any of the dragons in a particular order at the moment.

My Overall Opinion:

What I Like:

What I Don't Like:

Changes That Can Be Made to Make it Better:

Recommendation (as in, if you should get it or not):

 

Rating System

Titans and non-Titans alike will be rated on the following things:

 

  • Usefulness - This is what the dragon is good for. Some dragons are better for stable missions than others while some dragons are best suited as "trophy dragons", dragons that aren't really useful in. . .anything but are still nice to have.
  • Color Options - This covers how you can color the dragon. The more liberty you have over coloring your companion, the better the score.
  • Animations
  • Fire Animation -  Not to be confused with the firing animation. This covers the dragon's fireball.
  • Design
  • Final Score

And finally, dragons will be scored using. . .happy Papa Moons (my main Stormcutter). This will be done on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the worst (and might as well be a sad Papa) and 10 being the best. The final score is determined by adding the Happy Papa Moons a dragon has earned and dividing it by 50 (the maximum amount of Happy Papas a dragon can earn). So if a dragon earns 30 out of 50 Happy Papas, 30 / 50 = .8 which will be translated as 8 out of 10 Happy Papas. Of course, if you decide to add your own reviews on here, you're not obligated to use the format or rating system. ^^

 

Keep in mind, these are all my personal opinions on the dragons so there will be a lot of bias; you're more than welcome to disagree with them! If anything, I'd like to hear why someone dislikes a dragon I love and vice versa. ovo

I know it says Squiid invited you, ssh pretend I did, yeah, she's cool, but ssh I invited you..

'Bout me:

Name: Goldenwolfmidna; Goldenwolf; Golden; Midna; etc.

Name IRL: Call me Dave, I respond

Gender/pronouns: Dysphoria, so much dysphoria. Pangender/agender/not cis.  They/them

Favorite Dragon: Skrill, my dear children. Lightning breath and a bad attitude? It's me, dragon-fied!

Favorite color: Orange, probably, then blues

What I'm like: I'm a tired, oftentimes snippy and sarcastic, human. I enjoy art and playing video games. I am extremely passionate about genders and se.xualities, so if you want a long-winded rant about how I'm a human too, PM me and tell me! I'm always happy to explain what it's like being pangendered/agendered and panromantic/ase.xual!

Other crap: I am: panromantic, meaning I can be attracted to people of any and all genders in a romantic sense; I am ase.xual, meaning I am not attracted to people in a se.xual way.

I like to draw, so if you have a request of a dragon for an artist, PM me a picture of a dragon, its backstory, and what you want. If I feel so inclned, I will complete your request.

I am a huge nerd and proud of it. I play D&D soon-to-be three times a week, as a DM one time, a Drow Swashbucker, and a Dragonborn Paladin named Ajoke in the last. Fun fact; Ameme, Ajoke's father, was posessed by Bahamut one time. Bahamut is the D&D Dragon God of Good. 

 

Adopts and OCs:

Flikrr, made by the AMAZING Chamishida!

I looked around, nose in the air. It told me there was boar near. I, fire burning hotly within myself, looked around. Sure enough, fifty paces off, more or less, was a full-grown boar. I was getting rather hungry, and a boar makes a nice meal. I stealthily approched it, thinking of the feast I'd have today.

The boar's head jerked up- great. I must have been too loud. And then I heard it as well: crunching leaves beneath a foot. It was leaf-fall, so this was no big surprise. I lunged at the boar, and it gave a shrill whine of terror before I rammed into it, scorching the fur. Within seconds, it was d'ead. I tore into it, hunger stopping all other thought until I saw a shadow and heard the hushed voices: "Is it real?" "Is that a Coalskin?" "How are we not in Valhalla yet?"

I turned. There was a group of Viking children, watching me. They speak in whispers among themselves, but I hear. I turn to look at them, and the voices fall silent. They look scared, except one. I give a ROAR and the group scatters. Not one, though. She approaches me, and says quitely, "They're not going to hurt you." I look at the Viking. She's nothing special, really. She's just braver than the rest. I like that.

I look at the girl, and think about what I'm doing. I then dip my head, slightly. A respectful bow. I respect bravery, and this child, no less, has stood to a Coalskin. In my opinion, we are the most scary dragons out there. The girl returns the bow, and she begins to walk off, and I follow. 

"You need a name." Her voice cuts the silence of the forest. I look at her. I have a name, but nothing she can pronounce. It's 'Hrrrrr', all long and dragged out, and low, very low, until the end, where it flares up into a high pitch. But this girl doesn't know that. "Flicker? Nah, too generic. Flickrr." I like this new human-name. It cuts the 'e' sound, leaving you with a harsh 'rrr' sound. We walk back, both content walking in silence.

And that's how it's been ever since. Once Holly foud her island, I have stayed to keep it save from all who wish her harm.  I am a guardian, one who will keep this land I call my home. The other dragons, like Birchbark, all accept me as a protecter, and know better than to cross me. I am kept 'in check' by Holly's Groncicles, who I do adore, as they let me run free, so long as no fires start in my wake. Dragons come and go, taken to great beyonds, and although I cannot go on adventures 'round the world, I keep my own world safe, for myself, for Holly, and for the other dragons. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brichbark, made by, again, the amazing Chamishida! Thank you so much, Chamishida!

 Birch was found by Lightning, Holly's Skrill, on a stormy day. The small Sinisterous Woodreaper, being about two months old and having a broken leg, snuggled up with the large Skrill. Holly found them some time later, and saw the leg. She quickly bound it and took the dragon home. A few months later, the small dragon was healed and had the name of Birchbark. Holly set the dragon free but the dragon wouldn't leave. Holly relented and kep the dragon, letting her roam free on the island Holly and her dragons called home. Birchbark si all grown up now, and helps to protect the island.

~~~~~~~~~

Drym, made by the wonderful KasaneLover!

How Holly managed to tame this dragon is beyone her. After Drym had eaten enough of Holly's food, they just decided to follow along after her, and now is one of the dragons of her island.

~~~~~~~~

If you're down here, then know this is a WIP. And it shall continue to be for quite a while.

Also, PM me 'wer aunel di vi darastrix' and you'll get a special dergon art!

Week #1: Titan Stormcutter

Starting off strong with my favorite Titan!

 

Titan Stormcutter

Overall Opinion: The Titan Stormcutter is my favorite Titan in the game so far, primarily because I love Stormcutters so much already. While it's not as big as I'd like it to be (a grain of salt rests on my shoulder whenever I see Cloudjumper and look back at my Titan Stormcutter), it still looks great and is pretty high on the "Useful Titan" list.

 

Likes

  • The wings of the dragon - I love the design overall but the wings stand out to me the most; the wing tips remind of bird wings!
  • The color options
  • Its excellent turn and pitch rate - Thanks to its four mighty wings, this dragon is a breeze to ride in racing. While not the fastest, it can surely make tight turns that much faster dragons like the Skrill or Snow Wraith struggle to make.
  • The breaking animation - I love how the dragon looks when it's breaking/stopping in the air because the way it essentially spreads all of its limbs make it look like its trying to be intimidating, a force to be reckoned with.
  • The idle animations - When it's standing, it looks incredibly curious. When it's sitting, it barfs up an invisible fish; it's nice to see a scene from a movie be turned into an animation. xD

Dislikes

  • Size - I understand that the Stormcutter (Titan or not) can't be made bigger because it'll cause the game to lag but I think it could at least be as big as the Titan Woolly Howl, a Titan that's bigger than the Titan Stormcutter. And considering there's quite a few of those flying around. . .I think it can be done.
  • Over a year since the accessory's release and this Titan still can't wear its red racing paint (I believe they're the Racing Stripes) because it'll have its adult look/textures when wearing it. On mobile, the dragon's textures become blurry in conjunction with this, regardless of what quality you're playing the game in.
  • There's no side-gliding animations for the dragon so it'll occasionally freeze when doing so. Prior to the removal of the ground firing animations when the dragon is flying, when you fired while side gliding, the dragon would spazz out (there's a gif of it on the Wikia if you want to see it).
  • Fireball - I have a mixed relationship with the fireball. I don't hate how it looks but compared to some of the more recent Titans (and even older ones like the Whispering Death), it looks lackluster.

Changes I'd Make

  • Make the Titan Stormcutter as big as the Titan Woolly Howl (at the very least; I'd love it to be much bigger but again, they can't do that without the game lagging).
  • Fix the red racing paint and side-gliding animation issue
  • Make the fireball bigger and/or brighter
  • Make the dragon slightly faster; I know they're not Night Fury fast but Cloudjumper wasn't too far behind when Toothless swooped in to save Hiccup from crashing into something (again).

Recommended?: 100% yes! It looks great and it's a pretty useful Titan.

 

Rating

Utility: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

​The Titan Stormcutter is a solid battler, though better battle dragons exist. It's excellent at turning and diving in racing but its speed leaves much to be desired, though it does have saddles. The Titan Stormcutter really shines in stable missions: It's good for missions that require Tough dragons (most notably "The Long Patrol") and is one of the few dragons that give a pretty nice boost for the "Nest Mess" mission if you happen to be down a Zippleback or two. There's even a quest dedicated to this Titan ("Cavern Hunt")! It's also a pretty good Dragon Tactics dragon, being able to restore it's own health and having a really powerful long ranged attack in its arsenal.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The color options of this Titan are great; you can make the dragon as bright or as dark as you want and there's not so much blending to the point where the color of one part drastically effects how the other part will look (It seems the belly is the only part that's really like that). You can color this entire Titan too! *glares at the Titan Dramillion*

 

Animations: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Stormcutter, like a majority of Titans, has the same animations as a normal Stormcutter. The only fault with the animations is the side gliding issue, which prevents this dragon from getting a perfect score. The idle animations make it look as inquisitive as it did in the movie and it looks great while flying, especially when you're breaking (or more specifically, when you're holding down the acceleration and brake buttons at the same time).

 

Fireball: 7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Stormcutter's fire doesn't look that bad, though it's one of my least favorite Titan fireballs. Compared to quite a few other Titans, the fireball for this lovable owl dragon is just lackluster and could really use a touch up.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Stormcutter looks amazing! The best part about this Titan is the edges of its wings. Considering owls are one of the Stormcutter's inspiration, the feather-like edges are perfect! In addition to looking more intimidating, it also has a "wiser" feel to it.

 

Final Score: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Stormcutter is perfect the perfect addition to any dragon family and a must have for Stormcutter fans. While the size is a bit underwhelming, the Titan's design and colors outshine that.

 

That's all I have in store for the Titan Stormcutter! I honestly thought I'd have a lot more to write down for my favorite Titan. . .oh well. How do you all feel about this Titan?

Week #2: Titan Zippleback

With today being April Fool's, I figured the next dragon should be the finest prankster of them all:

 

Titan Hideous Zippleback

Overall Opinion: The Titan Zippleback is a solid Titan, with nice color options, very high accessibility, and, like the Stormcutter, it's very high on the "Useful Titan" list.

  • The fact that both heads will follow you when you're in the water; the only other dragon that does this is the Thunderdrum.
  • Ease of Access - The fact there's so many ways to get this dragon is both great and bad, the latter of which I'll get into later. You can choose it as your starter dragon, buy it from the store with both gems and coins (the latter of which you need a certain amount of UDT first), find it in any of the sparkling chests lying around the Archipelago (if you're really lucky. . .or unlucky if you find it in the gem chests), battle events, Stable Missions that give Mystery Egg Chests, and even from racing (after you collect 1000 sheep in ThunderRun Racing, you'll get an egg chest)!
  • Idle Animation - While it still lacks sitting idle animations, the one that plays while it's standing is nice; the heads stare at each other a bit! It's not much but it's always amusing to see it.

Dislikes

  • Stiff/outdated animations - The Zippleback's animations are pretty outdated and it becomes evident when you look at dragons like the Stormcutter and the Light Fury, both of which have much more lively animations. However, it does have really good animations in Dragon Tactics that I think should be applied outside of the minigame as well.
  • Fireball - Like the Titan Stormcutter, the Titan Zippleback's fireball is lackluster compared to the other Titans (and even some non-Titans like the Goregutter).
  • If you look under the Titan Zippleback's wings, it'll revert to normal Zippleback wings. I'm not sure why it does that but I really like the dragon's wing edges so to see them disappear is both weird and disappointing. . .actually, the disappointment stems more from the fact that this was one of the first TItans released and it still has this problem.
  • Some of the more recent paints released for this dragon aren't Titan friendly, most notably the ugly Snoggletog sweaters and the Dreadfall Skin. The wing edges looks wonky since it's trying to apply normal Zipplback textures onto a Titan Zippleback.

Changes I'd Make

  • Give it Fire-in-Flight Animations (FiFA); this animation would be one head firing the gas and the other sparking it. If not, at least both heads should be together when the fireball is being produced.
  • Make the fireball more vibrant and bigger.
  • Make all of its paints Titan friendly; ironically enough, the warpaint makes regular Zipplebacks looks like Titan Zipplebacks but unlike the reverse scenario, it actually looks pretty good.

Recommended?: Yes! Even though there's quite a few things I dislike about the Titan, its utility and good looks make it a tough Titan to pass up.

 

Rating

Utility: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Zippleback is a mediocre battler and racer, though saddles can help it out if you know how to race with it. This dragon truly shines in stable missions and Dragon Tactics. Two quests in particular--Loki's Maze and Nest Mess--require Titan Zipplebacks for the highest chance of success (the former of which I believe can have its success rate boosted even further with Rank 30 dragons) and offer excellent prizes: A big sack of gems and a mystery egg chest respectively. There's also a quest called Lost Zippleback, though that request only gives the usual prizes (coins, dragon experience, and UDT) and it's a members-only quest. In Dragon Tactics, it can boost its damage output and has a powerful long range attack and a solid mid-range attack; the only thing preventing this dragon from getting a 9 or higher is its lackluster performance in both racing and battle events.

 

Color Options: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Zippleback's color options are pretty great! The only thing I don't like is the main color of the dragon effects the color of the spikes and a set of spots (I think it's the "Details" of the dragon but I can't remember). For example, one of my Zipplebacks is red, green, and light blue but because of the red, the light blue isn't nearly as bright and, if anything, looks washed out.

 

Animations: 6 Happy Papas out of 10

The only thing preventing the Titan Zippleback from getting a lower score on this is the heads watching you while you're swimming; I really like that feature and hope it gets applied to more dragons. The animations are just outdated and stiff compared to some of the other dragons like the Deathgripper or even the Deadly Nadder, a dragon release at the same time as it and yet, has better, more lively animations that still look great alongside ones like the aforementioned Deathgripper and Stormcutter. Not having any FiFA doesn't help its case either.

 

Fireball: 5.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Zippleback's fireball is currently my least favorite Titan fireball because of how lackluster it is compared to so many other Titans; the Titan Nadder has such a big, bright fireball, why couldn't the poor Titan Zippleback get a big fireball at least?

 

Design: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Zippleback looks really good and still retains that Zippleback charm. It just looks more. . .mischevious. Like, "heh, we're bigger and better now, time to pull even more devious pranks."  My favorite part of this Titan is its spines; they remind me of leaves and considering this dragon is all about stealth, having leaf-like appendages suits it perfectly. The only thing stopping this thing from getting a perfect 10 is the wing thing I mentioned early.

 

Final Score: 7.8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Zippleback, while having quite a few shortcomings, is still a good dragon to add to any dragon family, especially if you love your Zipplebacks. Its strong points are Stable Missions and Dragon Tactics, where it excels for providing high success rates and being a heavy hitter respectively.

 

That's all for the Titan Zippleback! Happy April Fool's Day everyone!

Week #2: Hideous Zippleback

Hideous Zippleback

Overall Opinion: The Hideous Zippleback is the least popular of the main starter dragons but having started with one when the new opening came out in 2016, I developed a soft spot for this two headed dragon. It's pretty nice to have around; it'll help you stand out more since it's not picked very often!

 

Likes

  • If you're trying to stand out from the crowd, this is the dragon to pick; a lot of people tend to pick Nadders and Nightmares more than the Gronckle and ZIppleback (and that's not taking the member starter dragons into consideration, which gives this poor Mystery Class dragon even more competition).
  • Like the Titan stage, when you're in the water, the heads follow you around.
  • Ease of access - As a starter dragon, there's a number of ways to get this dragon (refer to the Titan Zippleback review for more information).
  • Idle animations

Dislikes

  • Fireball - The Zippleback's fireball isn't all that great compared to ones like the Shockjaw or the Gronckle.
  • Stiff/outdated animations (refer to the Titan Zippleback review for more information)

Changes I'd Make

  • Change the fireball; I'd make it look like a standard fireball (since that's the result you get when a Zippleback ignites its gas anyways) or a bright fireball with a trail of green gas behind it.
  • Update the animations; just adding the flying animations in Dragon Tactics would do this dragon justice. This would also include giving it FiFA.

Recommended?: Yes! It'll help you stand out more and the Titan makes it a solid choice in the long run.

 

Rating

Utility: 7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Zippleback doesn't strive in stable missions as much as its Titan stage does but it's still an excellent choice for Dragon Tactics and can earn you gems through the Loki's Maze quest.

 

Color Options: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Zippleback's color options are like the Titan's: The only drawback is main color of the dragon can make certain colors look washed out.

 

Animations: 6 Happy Papas out of 10

The Hideous Zippleback has the 2nd worse/most outdated animations of all the starter dragons (including the member starters). Like its Titan stage, the only thing stopping it from getting a lower score is the heads following you in the water.

 

Fireball: 5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Zippleback's fire could use touch-up and can be disappointing when you look at how great the fireballs have been looking as of late.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

It looks like a Zippleback, it sounds like a Zippleback, ergo it is a Zippleback. However, it looks just a weeeeeee bit cuter in the game than in other media.

 

Final Score: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The score came out to be a lot better than I thought it was gonna be; good! The Hideous Zippleback will help you stand out when you first start your dragon adventures and its Titan stage will prove to be useful later down the line. It is still just as useful as said Titan stage in Dragon Tactics (at the time of writing, Titans don't get any sort of boost in Dragon Tactics) and, most importantly, it's super cute when it watches you when you're swimming around. It's like it's watching out for you!

 

I thought I'd do this dragon next since we started off the week with April Fools; it only seemed right!

Week #3: Titan Rumblehorn

What's that flying over the horizon? Why, it's the next Titan in line to review!

 

Titan Rumblehorn

Overall Opinion: The Titan Rumblehorn (may or may not just say Titan Rumblie from this point onward) was the last starter dragon to get a Titan stage but last doesn't always mean least! While this Titan may not be as useful as the previous ones I've covered so far, it's still a nice dragon to look at and an even nicer dragon to fly on.

 

Likes

  • Color Options - I prefer the coloring options on the Titan Rumblie than I do on the standard Rumblie. It's not as "blendy" and thus, one color doesn't dramatically effect another.
  • Ease of Access - While not as easy to obtain as say a Gronckle or Deadly Nadder, it's still relatively easy to get. If you're lucky, you can rescue one when you first start the game (October 2016 onwards). If you don't rescue one, you have a chance at getting one from mystery egg chests and the egg chest you obtain after collecting 1000 sheep in ThunderRun Racing. I think you have a chance at getting them from battle but I can't remember.

Dislikes

  • Fireball - Of the more recent Titans, the Titan Rumblie's fireball is very lackluster. It's up there as one of my least favorite Titan fireballs.
  • Lack of sitting animations - I can't be the only one who feels a little bad that this dragon can't sit down.
  • Paints - None of the Rumblie's paints are Titan friendly and two of the three reduce the graphics/textures of the dragon on mobile. . .plus, the warpaint kinda forces the Hero Skin on you and I'm not a huge fan of that.

Changes I'd Make

  • Let the poor thing sit. TmT
  • Make the fireball bigger
  • Fix all of its paints

Recomended?: If you like your Rumblies, by all means. It looks great! But that's about as much as it has going for it so if you're trying to get Titans that are useful, this isn't one of them (unless you consider being a trophy dragon useful).

 

Rating

Utility: 3 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Rumblie isn't very useful. It's far from the best battler due to its low shot limit and frequently changing trajectory, it's incredibly short range and lack of long range in Dragon Tactics means it won't do much unless the enemies come to you, it's not a great racing dragon (even with its saddles; it's too slow unless you've stocked up on Speed Boosts), and while it's somewhat useful in Stable Quests, there are dragons that can take its place and do the job much better. All-in-all, not a very useful Titan unfortunately.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

I love the Titan Rumblie's color options. Does it leave quite a bit to be desired? Compared to its promotional image, yes, but I'm still happy with it. I can color most of it independently and the parts I can't color are either small (the little tear drop patterns on the wing membranes, which look really awesome by the way) or something you couldn't color to begin with (the belly).

 

Animations: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Rumblie has pretty nice animations and it probably would've gotten a 9.5 or even a 10 if the poor dragon could actually sit down and have some sitting idle animations. My favorite animation is the flying one; it looks just like how Skullcrusher flew in the 2nd movie!

 

Fireball: 5 Happy Papas out of 10

As I'm going through the Titans and seeing what I like and don't like about'em, I'm starting to realize the Titan Rumblie's fireball is my least favorite of the Titan fireball animations. It looks like they just added a lot more smoke to the fireball and made it brighter. I'm fine with it being brighter, I just wish it was bigger instead of having denser smoke trail behind it. Very underwhelming compared to the other recent Titans.

 

Design: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

I love how this Titan looks! I do wish there was a bit more to it though, like the armor-like scales could have more detail to them or the little spikes running along the Titan Rumblie's back could be made a bit thicker and/or taller; when you look at the normal Rumblie, it's scales do seem a little underwhelming but overall, I still like this thing.

 

Final Score: 7.1 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Rumblie was unfortunately given the short end of the stick in quite a few things but it's still pretty nice to look at and even better to ride.

 

And there goes our precious Titan Rumblie, flying back to which it came. Anyways, I didn't (and still kinda don't) have a set order I'll be doing the Titans and other dragons in but I do have a select few that I plan on doing in the coming days/weeks: The other starter dragons. That being said, which Titan (or standard dragon) do you want to see next? Here are your options:

 

  • Deadly Nadder
  • Monstrous Nightmare
  • Gronckle
  • Flightmare
  • Sand Wraith
  • Shockjaw
  • Skrill
  • Thunderdrum
  • Whispering Death

Voting will remain open until Monday April 15th at 2:30PM Eastern Standard Time; the dragon with the most votes will be done next and I'll work down the list from there. If there aren't enough votes (say 1 vote Deadly Nadder but 0 for the other species), I will assign each dragon a number and use a random number generator to determine which one I'll do next. . .I mean, I could do that now, but the former method is more fun (and give me more time to get pictures of the dragons during their Titan growths *cough*).

Week #4: Titan Deadly Nadder

Voting has officially ended. . .yesterday! Not enough votes were obtained to determine the order of the other starter dragons so I'll be using a RNG for them. But one dragon did get a vote. And that dragon is [the]. . .

 

Titan Deadly Nadder

Overall Opinion: Despite being the most popular non-member starter dragon, you don't see very many Titan Deadly Nadders flying around the School. Nevertheless, they're beautiful to look at and incredible to fly on. It's an amazing dragon to use for stable missions and while it's not the fastest dragon around, it's fairly easy to use in racing. It's a bit difficult to find the right combination of colors but once you find one you're happy with, it looks downright stunning.

 

Likes

  • Color options - You can make your Titan Nadder as vibrant as a macaw or as dark as a crow and it'll look great regardless. The main color of the dragon can greatly influence what I think is under "Details" for this Titan (so in the above picture, everything that's orange), hence why coloring this dragon hasn't been that much of a walk in the park. But I find that once you find a nice color combo, it looks fantastic on this Titan.
  • Animations - The Titan Deadly Nadder is the liveliest of the starters. It preens itself, looks around curiously while you're talking to the Headmaster, and flaps its wings every so often for some reason. It's also quite a fun dragon to ride since it's walk is so. . .bouncy!
  • Fireball - The Titan Deadly Nadder's fireball is a good example of what a Titan's fireball should look like: Bigger and brighter. Granted, the standard Nadder's fireball isn't much to look at anyways so improving it isn't (or shouldn't be at least) that difficult but still; more Titans should follow the Titan Nadder's footsteps.
  • Spike Crown - I love how massive the spike crown is. It doesn't look as ridiculous as a certain Titan's additional spikes/ear things (looking at you, Titan Triple Stryke) and gives it a bit more of a "royal" feel, like a queen or king.
  • Sound effects - A rare trait among Titan dragons, the Titan Deadly Nadder has different sound effects than its standard counterpart; the sounds are overall deeper. A small but appreciated trait.
  • Ease of Access - Like the Zippleback, the fact that it's so easy to get this dragon is both good and bad (I forgot to cover the bad in the Titan Zippleback post so I'll just add it here). You can buy it with coins once you get enough UDT and gems if you can't wait, pick it as your starter dragon after your secondary starter, win it battle events, obtain it from the chests lying around the Archipelago, have a shot in getting one from Mystery Egg Chests, and finally, have a chance to get one after collecting 1000 sheep in Thunder Run Racing.

Dislikes

  • The Hero Stripes aren't Titan friendly.
  • Ease of Access - Like I said before, being incredibly easy to obtain is both good and bad. Because there's so many ways to get this dragon, it's very easy to have too many of them; this isn't a problem if you're as much of a Nadder fan as I am a Stormcutter fan.

Changes I'd Make

  • Fix the Hero Stripes

Recommended?: Yes! They're designed really well and their quite useful in stable missions.

 

Rating

Utility: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deadly Nadder isn't the worst nor the best racer; it's decent but finds itself outclassed by much more speedy and nimble dragons like the Furies and the Sand Wraith. It's a poor dragon to use in battle due to its slow recharge rate and mediocre shot limit; while the damage can be considered compensation, the damage per shot doesn't contribute to your score. It's not a great dragon to use in Dragon Tactics either; again, it's just in the middle. So that leaves only one area for the Titan Nadder to shine in: Stable Missions. This Titan is great for gathering Titan Runes. There's one quest in particular called Ancient Stones that gets you 1 Titan Rune but it's fairly easy to get a 100% success rate; Level 30 dragons and having a Level 30 Titan Nadder makes things that much easier. Additionally, there's The Great Egg Rescue, another quest the Titan Nadder thrives in thanks to its attributes (Razor and Speed). I'm sure there's more missions I missed and/or haven't found yet but those two are the best ones I remember.

 

Color Options: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The only thing stopping this Titan from getting a perfect score is the main color effecting a good portion of the dragon (again, everything orange on the Nadder for this review's picture) and the Hero Stripes giving this dragon its normal look. If I were to make the dragon light blue and the belly red, the red would look faded out and vice versa (but show up really well on the wings). Aside from that, this Titan has very nice color options.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

Sorry Papa Moon, I have to give the Titan Nadder a perfect score on this one; there's no animation issues whatsoever with this dragon! It's almost never stops moving and it's incredibly lively. It's also very entertaining to watch! Fantastic animations overall.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deadly Nadder's fireball is everything a Titan fireball should look like: It's bigger and brighter and easy to distinguish from a standard Nadder's fireball!

 

Design: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deadly Nadder is a beautiful Titan, that I cannot deny. While not on Titan Stormcutter level of beauty, it's still an admireable sight to behold.

 

Final Score: 9.2 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deadly Nadder is an easy-to-access Titan that while not the most useful Titan around, is still a nice one to have. It isn't necessarily really bad at anything except battle but primarily excels in Stable Missions. If you love Deadly Nadders, you'll definitely want to train a Titan Nadder some day.

 

Wow, this Titan managed to get a higher score than the Titan Stormcutter; be proud Titan Deadly Nadder (and Titan Nadder riders), be proud! Anyways, the Random Number Generator has spoken! The next starter Titan is gonna be. . .

 

The Flightmare! Look forward to that!

Week #5: Titan Flightmare

Sorry this one took longer than usual! I wanted to get a picture of the dragon during their Titan growth before I made the post and with little luck getting a Flightmare egg, I just decided to age up one of my other Flightmares. That all being said, give a warm welcome to the next dragon in line. . .

 

Titan Flightmare

Overall Opinion: The Titan Flightmare is a beautiful Titan and was one of the biggest because of its massive wings. It's mystical appearance adds to this species' mysterious and elusive nature.

 

Likes

  • The wings of the dragon - Like the Titan Stormcutter, this Titan earned a special section just for its wings. They're huge and look much better than standard Flightmare wings.
  • Color options - The sky's not even the limit with this dragon. You can make it extremely dark or vibrant like just like my dragons tend to be and it'll look great. You can also color this entire dragon!
  • Fireball - It looks like the Flightmare mist we see in Race to the Edge and Defenders (or Riders I can't remember which season it showed up in) of Berk; this is how the Flightmare's fireball should look like!
  • Solid racing performance
  • Ease of Access - Prior to the Dreadfall update of 2016, you had to hope you could win this dragon from battle or find it in mystery egg chests. Now you have a chance of rescuing one the moment you start your adventure!

Dislikes

  • Bad turn rate - This dragon doesn't have a good turn rate, though it's at least better than some of the faster dragons like the Skrill and Woolly Howl.

Changes I'd Make: N/A

Recommended?: Yes! It looks good, it races pretty nicely, it's pretty good in Dragon Tactics, ergo I say it'd be a fine addition to your collection of Titan Wings.

 

Rating

Utility: 6.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Flightmare is a solid racing dragon, with the main thing holding it back being its poor turn rate. Saddles may help remedy this but not enough to compete with dragons like the Sand Wraith. It's poor shot limit and fast recharge rate make it an awful dragon to use for battle events unless you're firing from the recharge station and even then, it's not the easiest to aim. It's a great dragon to use for Stable Missions, though it's not as useful as the Zippleback or Nadder in that department. This dragon really shines in Dragon Tactics; in fact, if Dragon Tactics didn't become what it is now (a minigame that isn't expansion exclusive and enables you to use your own dragons), the Titan Flightmare would have a lower score in this department. It's main ability can hit mulitple enemies and has a 50% chance to stun enemies! It's kinda frail though so cross your fingers the stun comes into play often.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Flightmare's color options are great! You can make it as vibrant or dark as you want and it'll still look phenomenal. My favorite part to color is the wing edges of the dragon; depending on what colors you choose, it'll look almost as if this dragon's glowing!

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Flightmare has pretty great animations! It's especially great when you remember that like the Stormcutter, it used to have Toothless animations. Unlike the Stormcutter, it has all of its animations intact; no missing animations and thus, no freezing in the air or something.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Flightmare's fireball is stunning. It actually looks like Flightmare mist, more so than the puny mist ball the standard Flightmare produces in the game. It's perhaps one of my favorite Titan fireballs to date and holds up well against the "modern" fireballs.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Flightmare looks amazing! It looks eerie and mystical at the same time, which is perfect for a dragon that has to be at least a litttle inspired by the banshee. It looks a lot better than the one in Rise of Berk, which is interesting considering that game usually has the better Titan designs.

 

Final Score: 9.3 Happy Papas out of 10

What was once a trophy dragon in my book has now rose to be one of the finest Titans in my book. It looks great, it's a useful dragon, and you have a few ways to get this dragon, with the most notable way being the chance you have to rescue one when you first begin your dragon adventure. The first (and currently only) Titan to need no changes be made to it, the Titan Flightmare is a grand addition to any dragon flock.

 

. . .looks like I'll have to take away some of the Titan Nadder's well earned pride because this Titan scored better than it. Not by much, but it did. With the help of a Random Number Generator, the next Titan in line is. . .

Week #5: Titan Whispering Death

To make up for the long delay the Titan Flightmare review had, I decided to work on this one right away! Give a warm welcome to the. . .

 

Titan Whispering Death

Overall Opinion: The Titan Whispering Death is a huge improvement from the Whispering Death and is probably the only reason I'm fine with having over a dozen Whispering Death eggs (literally). A fine, fine Titan indeed.

 

Likes

  • Color Options - The Titan Whispering Death's color options are far better than the standard Whispering Death. It's not nearly as dark unless you want it to be (the only reason it looks dark in the image is because I aged up this guy in the Whispering Death Tunnels) and no one color effects the other.
  • Fireball - Is it even right to call it a fireball? It's literally giant rings of fire. . .and I love it. I was in awe when I got my first Titan Whispering Death and fired with it for the first time! It's one of the older Titan fireballs that hold up very well with the more recent ones.
  • Animations - The Titan Whispering Death has snake-like animations, which is perfect given that the Whispering Death is pretty much a giant snake with tiny wings (at least compared to its body size) and teeth as long as spears. It doesn't have FiFA but for once, it makes sense why it doesn't have them; it's mouth is always open in flight. It's pretty much set.

Dislikes

  • Ease of Access - Normally I consider this a pro but for this dragon in particular, it's primarily a con. There's a non-expansion quest that gives you a Whispering Death egg, you can get one from the chest lying around the Archipelago, you a chance of finding them in battle event or mystery egg chests, and you can get it as a starter dragon. . .if you're a member. Now the trial membership is fairly easy to get but the fact that it's so easy to get in other ways doesn't make it a worthwhile dragon to select as your starter when you're a member; not even incredibly common dragons like the Thunderdrum, Nadder, or Skrill have the honor of being obtainable in a non-expansion quest, let alone any quest in general (unless you include the very first ones you do to pick out your starter and whatnot).

 

Changes I'd Make: N/A

Recommended?: Yes! This is one of the few instances where the Titan makes having too many eggs of the dragon worthwhile.

Utility: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Whispering Death is an excellent Titan. It's a solid racer, especially when you consider that this is a Boulder Class dragon, though like just about every other dragon, it's outclassed by others (even with saddles). In battle events, it's like a bulkier but ultimately worse version of the Prickleboggle: Slow rate of fire but very fast recharge rate. Not only does it fire slower than the Prickleboggle but it also has lower shot limit but I believe it has the highest health in the game at the time of writing. Despite its short range, it's an excellent dragon to use in Dragon Tactics. It's secondary attack is not only long range but leaves the foe burned once it hits, and the burn damage is quite high! Considering the move deals a lot of damage already, your target is bound to be done for before they even get to move. It can also heal itself like the Stormcutter. Finally, this dragon is one of, if not the best dragon to use in Stable Missions. It's good for a number of rune and gems quests, such as Lab AssistantHunk of Burning Runes, and Deep Dark Runes.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Whispering Death's color options are a huge upgrade from its standard stage. Like the Flightmare, not even the sky can limit you when coloring this dragon.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Whispering Death has excellent animations, true to what we've seen in the show. While I'd like for its mouth to close while it's flying, I can see why the move wasn't made and thus, no FiFA was given to this dragon; in fact, this is perhaps the only dragon that is justified when it comes to the lack of having a FiFA.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Whispering Deaths' fireball is, like the Titan Nadder, the perfect example of what a Titan's fireball should be: Bigger, brighter, and substantially better. If the standard Whispering Death's fireball looked more like this or more closely to how it looked in the show, I'd like it more; for now, this is quite similar to the one we see in the show.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Whispering Death is an excellent Titan dragon in terms of design. The best part about this Titan is its horns; it can either look like hair or like a crown!

 

Final Score: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

A perfect score! This is a must have Titan for any dragon rider due to its stylish good looks, amazing fireball, extremely high usefulness, and show-like animations. You'd definitely be missing out if you don't have at least one of these in your arsenal.

 

Wow, of all Titans, I would've never thought the Whispering Death would get a perfect score. Now this Titan has something to be proud of. Now I was going to do a starter dragon next but I have something else in mind. However, I will still use the Random Number Generator to determine the next starter dragon I'll do. That being said, the next starter Titan I'll be doing is. . .

Week #6: Titan Screaming Death

Make room for the next Titan in line!

 

Titan Screaming Death

Overall Opinion: The Titan Screaming Death is a SoD original; to date, it's the only game (that I'm aware of) that has a Titan design for the Screaming Death. I think they pulled it off pretty well! It's huge and intimidating, perfect for something that literally has "death" in its name. This dragon needs more love!

 

Likes

  • Size - While it's still not as huge as the Screaming Death in the series (due to technical limitations), this is still a massive Titan!
  • Fireball - The Titan Screaming Death has a large, bright fireball and the fire flares up a bit around the sides of its head/frills like it does in the series!
  • Color options - You can color your Titan Screaming Death however you want! Dark, bright, contrasting colors, you name it!
  • Animations - It shares animations with the Whispering Death but considering it's a mutated Whispering Death, it makes sense and works really well on this Titan. It also has FiFA!

Dislikes

  • No paints or skins are available for this dragon (at the time of writing at least)
  • The stripes/lines going down the body - I'm not sure why but I'm not the biggest fan of the lines going down the Titan Screaming Death's body. I prefer the "smoother" appearance of the standard Screaming Death.

Changes I'd Make

  • Give this dragon the paints and/or skins it deserves! I wouldn't mind buying my Titan Screaming Deaths some fancy red Racing Stripes!
  • Add it to Dragon Tactics; there's an icon with a Screaming Death on it and alas, you can't use this dragon in said minigame. I do have hope it'll be added in the long run however; the Changewing was in its shoes for a while before being added into the game, alongside other dragons like the Prickleboggle and Tide Glider.

Recommended?: Yes but it's best for people who really like Screaming Deaths or are in need of a good battle dragon; if you don't fall into either category and want a dragon that's useful for things like racing or stable quests, this isn't the Titan for you.

 

Rating

Utility: 6.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Screaming Death is a bit at a disadvantage here compared to the other Titans covered so far: It's not available in Dragon Tactics [yet]! So sadly, it loses some points for that. Like most dragons, it's a solid racer but it finds itself outclassed by other dragons. For battle events, it's like a slightly better Prickleboggle: It has a shot limit of 14, recharges very fast, and fires at a somewhat slow pace. However, it's range is very short; if you want a guaranteed hit on the ships, you need to be extra close for the ridicule to appear. It's okay in stable missions but I've only seen it be really useful for one Stable Mission in particular: Anti-Landing Party. A 4 hour quest that if you actually win, you'll get a sack of gems. In short, it's strong point is battle events but even then, you'd be better off using a Prickleboggle or Scauldron, both of which have much longer ranges and are much easier to aim from the recharge station.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

As I said earlier, you can color your Titan Screaming Death however you want. I have yet to see a color combination on this Titan that I don't like.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

This is just a mutated Whispering Death. . .a very scary, giant, mutated Whispering Death. Therefore, the Whispering Death animations are perfect for this Titan! Plus, it gets the extra bonus of having FiFA, something the Whispering Death lacks (with good reason but it lacks it nonetheless).

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The best thing about the Titan Screaming Death's fireball is the flare up that happens on the sides of its mouth or around the frills. It's like a giant flying cannon! Not to mention, it's easy to distinguish from a standard Screaming Death's fireball since it's bigger (not by much) and brighter!

 

Design: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Screaming Death looks pretty neat! The only thing I'm not too fond of are the lines running down its body; I'm not sure why I don't like them to be honest. But it hasn't stopped me from getting more Titan Screaming Deaths!

 

Final Score: 8.9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Screaming Death, while outclassed by its smaller cousin the Titan Whispering Death, is a solid Titan to have. Outside of battle events, this Titan is more of a trophy dragon but it's a scary trophy that's fun to fly around with.

 

That's it for the Titan Screaming Death! Every time I do something with the Whispering Death, Titan or not, I always follow have to follow it with something Screaming Death related; it just seems right.

Week #6: Titan Thunderdrum

You might wanna cover your ears for this one.

 

Titan Thunderdrum

Overall Opinion: The Titan Thunderdrum! A fine, fine Titan indeed. It's bigger than the original and it's fireball (or should I say roar) is substantially better. . .and it's somehow able to roar a lot faster than the original too! This has to be probably one of my top 10 favorite Titans in the game so far.

 

Likes

  • Fireball - The Titan Thunderdrum's fireball is much larger and noticeable than the standard Thunderdrum, which is not only great since it's a Titan but makes it substantially more useful in battle since it's easier to track it down when you're firing from the recharge station. 
  • Patterns - My favorite part about this Titan is the bioluminescent patterns on its back and the top side of its wings. It always looks like it's glowing and gives it more of a deep-sea look! However, it looks much better on the top side of the wings than undernearth them.
  • Animations - The Titan Thunderdrum has great flying and swimming animations. While it's swimming, it bounces in and out of the water like a breaching whale or a bouncy ball and it watches you swim around it! The flight animations also have that bouncy feeling to it and I love how it'll suck in or expand it's belly depending on whether it's accelerating or not.
  • Stubby Legs - It feels like everything about the Thunderdrum grew when it became a Titan. . .except for its legs. Despite that, I think it looks funny; this massive dragon known for having the power of Thor walking around with itty bitty legs. XD

Dislikes

  • Ease of Access - Like the Titan Whispering Death, this proves to be more of a downfall for the Titan Thunderdrum than an upside. Because it's so easy to get--battle events, mystery egg chests, etc.--it's far from a worthwhile member-exclusive starter dragon. However, at least you can't get it in a quest on top of all the other methods like the Whispering Death.
  • Warpaint - Honestly, the paint itself isn't that bad. Just not a huge fan of the colors that were used for it.
  • Tail - The tail looks pretty great on this Titan but because it's so long, it whips up and down in front of the camera and can temporarily block your vision if you're zoomed out while flying. This can especially be problematic during battle events.

Changes I'd Make

  • Change the color of the warpaint
  • Bring back the Rider's Saddle - I don't even know why it was removed to begin with but it was and I miss it.

Recommended?: Yes! If you're like me and primarily battle on mobile, this dragon is the best choice and it's an excellent dragon to use in Dragon Tactics. 

 

Rating

Utility: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Thunderdrum is a below-average racer and the fact that it's Rider's Saddle hasn't shown up in the store since 2017 only makes things worse. For stable missions, there's a few quests this Titan is good for, most Anti-Landing Party and Treasure Hunting. The latter is literally dedicated to Titan Thunderdrums; that is, you need 4 Titan Thunderdrums (level doesn't matter) to get the highest chance of victory, which is 80%. Then there's Dragon Tactics. This dragon can increase the damage it deals and it's primary attack is a mid-ranged one that inflicts damage on multiple enemies; an excellent primary move indeed, this makes it one of the best dragons to use in Dragon Tactics! Finally, there's battle events, where this Titan really shines. It's the only dragon that fires faster than a Scauldron and deals more damage; while it's incredibly fast rate of fire and average shot limit of 6 makes it seem like a bad battler, it makes it the best dragon to use from the recharge station. . .the only problem is it's a great battle dragon on mobile only because it needs to be aimed at the ship, otherwise it'll just fire ahead.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Thunderdrum can be colored everywhere and can be made either vibrant or dark. The bioluminescent patterns pop--and probably look their best--when the main color is dark. It'll look like it's glowing without the algae or the Hidden World effects! I also really like the nasal horn; it makes it look more like a war dragon.

 

Animations: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Thunderdrum has wonderful flying and swimming animations and looks kinda cute when it's walking around. It's firing animation is accurate to what we see in the show but I'm not a big fan of it. . .Thunderdrums only really look good firing when they're flying. And speaking of flying, this dragon lacks FiFA. The Titan Thunderdrum also watches you around while you're swimming but because it has no neck, it looks kinda unnatural. . .and maybe a little creepy at times.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Thunderdrum's fireball--or should I say, sonic blast--is an excellent upgrade to the standard Thunderdrum's sonic blast. It's much bigger and slightly brighter; it's sound so it's no surprise it's not as vibrant as a Titan Deadly Nadder's, nor do I expect it to be brighter in the first place.

 

Design: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Thunderdrum looks great; it looks like a giant deep-sea dragon! The main thing I'm not a fan of is the massive spikes on its tail; I think the ones that run down the tail are unnecessary compared to the ones that run down either side of the tail.

 

Final Score: 8.9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Thunderdrum is a fine addition to anyone's team, even with its flaws. While not the fastest dragon around, it's still a threat to be reckoned with and its good looks make it a Titan to be proud to own and great to admire.

 

And that's it for the lovable Titan Thunderdrum! No ears were damaged in the making of this review. Now, the next starter Titan I'll be covering is. . .

Week #7: Titan Sand Wraith

What's that moving under the sand? Could it be?

 

Titan Sand Wraith

Overall Opinion: The Titan Sand Wraith, a highly requested Titan alongside the Woolly Howl, Speed Stinger, and Scauldron. I'll be honest, I didn't care much for this Titan when I first saw it; if anything, I thought it was over-rated! But as time moved on and I got more of them, it grew on to me, and while it isn't one of my favorites, it's in a much better spot now than it was when it was first released. 

 

Likes

  • Overall racing performance - The Sand Wraith is an excellent racer and being a Titan supposedly makes it even better, albeit incredibly hard to notice. The Titan Sand Wraith is a very easy dragon to race with, being able to do turns and dives almost as well as the Furies. This can be said for most dragons if you know how to use them but the Sand Wraith is definitely a dragon that can beat a Fury in racing, saddles and all, once you know what you're doing.
  • Glossy complexion - On the PC version (or Steam) of the game, quite a few dragons look rather. . .glossy. While it looks really bad on some dragons, the Titan Sand Wraith is one of the dragons that look great with it. 
  • Fireball - Considering the standard Sand Wraith's fireball isn't much to look at (literally), the Titan Sand Wraith's fireball is an excellent upgrade from it. They could've taken the Titan Rumbly route and just add more sand behind it instead it's looks more like a flaming ball of sand.
  • Color options

Dislikes

  • Face - The Titan's Sand Wraith's face looks. . .weird. The normal Sand Wraith's face looks adorable and huggable but the Titan Sand Wraith's face discards those features. Granted, it looks more intimidating, which is great, but it also looks like a derp so it takes away from that added intimidation. . .actually, I have two words to summarize this Titan's face: Grumpy derp.

Changes I'd Make: N/A

Recommended: Yes! Just because it looks like a grumpy derp, doesn't mean it isn't a worthy member of your dragon pack or flock. It's an excellent racer and it's color options are as great as a standard Sand Wraiths (if not slightly better).

 

Rating

Utility: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sand Wraith is a slightly above-average battler because of it's above-average shot limit of 8 but it fires faster than it can recharge, meaning you'll be flying off to charge than firing. Additionally, it's not the best dragon to use from the recharge station. While there's stable missions where this dragon excels, there are dragons that do the job better, primarily the Thunderdrum. In Dragon Tactics, it has access to the ability Camouflage to boost its dodge and it's secondary move has a chance to stun but it's a close range move; all in all, a mediocre, if not below average Dragon Tactics option. This Titan's destiny is to race; racing is what it does best and with the Rider's Saddle, even the Furies may find themselves having trouble beating this Titan if the rider knows what they're doing. It's amazing racing performance is enough to give it 7 and a half Happy Papas.

 

Color Options: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sand Wraith's color options are great. Once again, there isn't anything you can't color and there isn't much limiting you. The only problem is the spots; you can make them whatever color you want but it can be hard to see or take away from the main color of your Titan, though it's not as bad as the Titan Hideous Zippleback.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The TItan Sand Wraith has Skrill and Toothless animations. Perhaps it's because they're both Strike Class dragons but when these animations are put together on a dragon, they always look good; Toothless'. . .everything animations alongside the Skrill's hovering animations make this Titan look excellent in the skies.

 

Fireball: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sand Wraith's fireball is an improvement from the standard Sand Wraith's fireball; it's bigger and brighter! But considering the regular Sand Wraith's fireball isn't much to begin with, just about anything looks better than it. I think if the sand/dust that trails the standard Sand Wraith's fireball would make this fireball look even better than it already does; than it'll really look like a flaming ball of sand!

 

Design: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sand Wraith looks pretty nice but I'm not too fond of its grumpy derp face (at least from the front) and some of the fairly large spikes/spines on its back. This is intended to be a sleek dragon so I feel the spikes take away from that sleekness. I do however love the design of the tail fins; there's little waves on them! Really brings out the Tidal Class in this Titan!

 

Final Score: 8.7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sand Wraith may not look as majestic as a Titan Woolly Howl but looks aren't everything; the finest racers have at least one of these Titans in their arsenal, blazing through the race track against rank 50 Master's Saddle Toothlesses and [saddleless] Light Furies as if they were Night Furies in disguise. It's stellar race performance and excellent animations overshadow its lackluster performance in battle events, stable missions, and Dragon Tactics.

 

And there goes one of the more common Titans, crawling into the sand and waiting silently like a hungry flounder. That's 5 of the starter dragons down, 4 more to go! Up next, we have. . .

Week #7: Titan Monstrous Nightmare

"Coming hot, and blowing out snot!" - Tuffnut from Race to the Edge

 

Titan Monstrous Nightmare

Overall Opinion: The Titan Monstrous Nightmare was among the first Titans to be released and is as rare--if not rarer--than the Titan Deadly Nadder. Additionally, it's one of the few Titans that we actually got to see in the animated series! Unfortunately, it seems like this Titan got worse with time but that doesn't mean it isn't worth investing in or discussing.

 

Likes

  • Color Options
  • Horns
  • Size
  • Ease of Access

Dislikes

  • Awful animations
  • Some paints aren't Titan friendly
  • Spikes/spines coming from the back; they're too big and don't suit this Titan very well.

Changes I'd Make

  • Fix the paints
  • Improve the fireball
  • Update the animations - If I had a choice, this would be the first thing I'd fix.
  • Make the back spikes/spines smaller.

Recommended?: Yes and no. On one hand, it's actually quite useful but it's animations are so bad, I can't even fully suggest it.

 

Rating

Utility: 7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Monstrous Nightmare isn't the best racing dragon, even with a wide array of saddles, but it's at least faster than the other non-member primary starter dragons (according the SilverWillow Wing's most recent video on the top 10 racing dragons; this video was made a little over a month before the Hidden World update). Surprisingly, this Titan is incredibly useful in stable missions; Lab AssistantHunk of Burning Runes, and Fireworm Runes are just some of the stable missions this Titan is good for. I would say it's actually more useful than the Titan Hideous Zippleback in that sense! Finally, it's decent in Dragon Tactics; it can't heal itself or boost its damage output like the Stormcutter or Thunderdrum can but it does have two moves that hit multiple enemies.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Monstrous Nightmare has good color options. . .actually, they're the same as a regular Monstrous Nightmare and I'm quite happy with that. Usually when a dragon becomes a Titan, your options change (be it a different area, one area that was separate is now under one category, or worse, reduce what you can color) but this Titan is one of the few (if not the only one) who's options don't change.

 

Animations: 1 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Monstrous Nightmare has one of the worse animations in the game, if not the worse animations to date. It's sitting idle animations are great, hence why this dragon doesn't have a 0 in this category but the flying and walking animations are so bad, I just can't bring myself to give it anything better than a 1. They're stiff and just look plain awful compared to the other dragons; even the Hideous Zippleback has better animations than this Titan. All in all, I wish they would finally update the animations on this dragon; if the Stormcutter, Snow Wraith, and Razorwhip can get new animations, why not one of the starter dragons?

 

Fireball: 5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Monstrous Nightmare actually had a good fireball compared to its standard counterpart but an update came along and changed all of that; now, the regular Monstrous Nightmare's fireball is better than the Titan's. The only thing this fireball has going for it is size; it's bigger than the standard Monstrous Nightmare's but it's duller and the explosion is very underwhelming compared to said fireball. I'm not sure why the Titan Monstrous Nightmare's fireball didn't get touched up with the regular Monstrous Nightmare's fireball but hopefully it too will get an improvement.

 

Design: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Monstrous Nightmare looks good but the massive spikes protruding from its back look bad; most Titans get bigger spikes and tend to look good with them but sadly, that just isn't the case here. That being said, the horns on this thing look great; it the horns on the Monstrous Nightmare are one of its most prominent features so making them bigger makes sense. And unlike the back spikes, they weren't made so big to the point of riduculousness.

 

Final Score: 6.1 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Monstrous Nightmare has great color options and is great for stable missions but its awful animations and lackluster fireball leaves much to be desired. This Titan is just in dire need of some updates but that doesn't mean it isn't worthy of being in one's pack of dragons; again, it's surprisingly useful and it still look pretty good.

 

One would think that someone who plans on getting so many Titan Nightmares somewhere down the line would give this Titan a better score but sadly this one isn't one of the Titans in that mix. Up next, we have. . .

Say... anyone have a subject I could borrow?

Yay! I finally got around to reading all of these, and I just want to thank you so much! They are so helpful, especially since I'm wanting to level up a dragon very soon and now I have more knowledge about the dragons and their pros and cons so the decision will be so much easier! So I really want to thank you for that! 

 

I've currently only got a Titan Scauldron which I use for battle a lot, but if I'm being honest, I probably preferred the adult. The colouring on the head looks weird and it's quite bloated as well... but it does more damage and since I do a lot of battles it's quite good for me! However, after reading your reviews, I'm leaning more towards getting a Thunderdrum as my battle dragon! I race only on mobile so it should be great! So thank you so much for that recommendation! 

 

Currently my list goes:

1. Thunderdrum

2. Flightmare/Whispering Death (I am still stuck between these two!!)

3. Razorwhip

4. Stormcutter

5. Nadder (I'm hesitant on this one because my girl looks so good in her Adult stage!!)

 

If you could maybe do Razorwhip sometime as well that'd be great but of course, it's up to you!

 

Thanks again! :)

Swoopin' In!

Sure, I can do the Razorwhip once I finish up with the remaining starters! Coincidentally, I just hatched a new Razorwhip so I'll have a picture just in time for the review. ^^

Ah yes, the Titan Scauldron is a broken Titan but I find it a beautiful one nonetheless. ^^ Hopefully they'll fix the poor thing soon, that double neck looks a bit creepy. But the Titan Thunderdrum is just a teensy bit better in terms of appearance and if you can aim it right, it's essentially a Thorspeed ballista. XD I'm glad my reviews are helping you with your Titan decisions. ^^

What you can do for your Nadder dilemma is getting another Nadder, Titaning that one up, and seeing how your main Madder's colors look on it; if it's not your cup of tea, at least you'll have the most useful Titan in the Tracker Class in your arsenal! Alternatively, you can name said Nadder "Titan Stormshear" (sorry if I got her name wrong, I'm trying to remember from the touring events xp) so you'll have a normal and a Titan version of her! That's what I did with the Death Song (then again, I don't like that Titan and I missed my dragon before the dreadful upgrade. . .).

Awesome, thanks!

The Titan Scauldron is beautiful just sad in the way it's broken... :'( 

That's also a great idea for the Nadder problem, I actually want to do it now! It's so smart!! (And don't worry, you got her name right! :D)

Thanks again! I'm looking forward to the next review! :)

Week #8: Titan Gronckle

While we may never see a Titan Gronckle outside of the games, we can always appreciate that the Gronckle did have a decently sized spot light in the 3rd movie thanks to our little Fishmeat (he got even more screentime than his mother. . .actually, I don't recall seeing Meatlug that much until the end. :/)

 

Titan Gronckle

Overall Opinion: The Titan Gronckle was one of the first Titans to be released. . .and another one that is based off (if not the exact same design) the one in Rise of Berk. But considering Ludia's Titans usually look really good, I'm not complaining. And considering a Titan upgrade is either 500 gems or 50 Titan runes, I'm glad they didn't go with the one in the Book of Dragons special. All in all, I'm a big fan of this Titan and for a while, it was my favorite Titan from the Boulder Class.

 

Likes

  • Design - It looks like it popped right out of a volcano! I also really like the tail; definitely looks like something that'll do more than leave a mark if you get it angry.
  • Color Options
  • Turn Rate and Acceleration - I love dragons that can make good turns and this dragon's one of them. Not only that but it also has a really good acceleration, making you feel like a winner for a few moments before an expert Sand Wraith rider overtakes you.

Dislikes

  • Defenders Saddle - I'm not a fan of this saddle in general but it looks worse on some dragons than others. It looks too big on a regular Gronckle and it hasn't changed much here.

Changes I'd Make

  • Remove the Turn Rate decrease from the Rider's Saddle - This dragon is best known for it's ability to make tight turns so the fact that this saddle actually reduces it's ability to do so is a bit ridiculous. Instead of reducing the Turn Rate, just leave it be; considering it has a 10 in that department, there's not really a reason to increase it. That investment can then be placed in Happiness or even Pitch Rate.

Recommended?: Yes unless you're in need of a racing dragon; while it turns really good, it's also really slow so you're better off with the typical racing dragon (Sand Wraith, Furies, maybe even a Skrill).

Utility: 6.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Gronckle has an excellent turn rate and acceleration but it's not very fast, even with saddles, thus making it outclassed by a lot of other dragons. It's an average battler with 6 shots and 16 damage per shot unless you're firing from the recharge station. Even then, it's more difficult to aim now that we finally got FiFA back and it doesn't fire as fast as the Scauldron or Titan Thunderdrum; again, you're better off using other dragons. Same goes for stable missions; it's not exactly useless but it's. . .just meh. It's one of the few dragons that can boost the odds of success for Nest Mess and there are a few quests specifically for Gronckles but the Titan Hideous Zippleback gives you the best odds for that quest and the Gronckle quests don't reward anything good. Finally, we have Dragon Tactics; definitely a solid choice but it's range could be better. However, it's primary attack is a mid-ranged one so that helps compensate for it. Additionally, it can improve its already high defenses and restore a little health over time, essentially making it a living tank.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Gronckle has excellent color options, with the best part being you can color the magma pattern in two different colors. You can make this dragon as light or as dark as you want, though I recommend keeping the main body color dark if you really want that magma pattern to pop. Black was particularly good on this Titan for that reason but sadly, we lost the color black with the UI change some time last year (or was it 2017? I can't remember but either way, it's been too long).

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Gronckle has great animations, with the only problem being its lower jaw glitches into its body when you're firing while flying (more specifically, accelerating). However, you don't really see it unless you're able to turn the camera. My favorite animation is when it walks; the way its tail sways almost gives it a sassy look.

 

Fireball: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Gronckle's fireball is nice but I feel like the regular Gronckle's fireball is just a bit better. Since this is a dragon whose fire is dependant on the rock they eat, I would've imagined it to be more vibrant. Still, it looks like a ball of lava is being fired, which is essentially what Gronckles produce, so I can't complain too much.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Gronckle looks amazing; the increase of spikes and spike length look really good on this Titan, especially the tail. Not to mention the magma pattern looks like it's practically glowing from the inside! Its new and improved massive canines also add to its dog-like appearance and gives you another reason to not approach this thing in the wild unless you know what you're doing and come prepared with a lot of fireproof equipment.

 

Final Score: 8.8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Gronckle is a very nice looking Titan with great animations and a decent fireball but it's kinda average in terms of utility. Far from the fastest racer or the best battler, I'm sure you'll be able to make use of this Titan's bulk and firepower somewhere.

 

That does it for the Titan Gronckle! Next in line, we have. . .

 

The Titan Skrill!

Week #8: Titan Skrill

Don't look away, viewers! The final score might shock you! Okay I'll just excuse myself.

 

Titan Skrill

Overall Opinion: The Titan Skrill is one of my favorite Titans in the game! Like the Titan Gronckle, and a majority of the other Titans, the Titan Skrill's design in School of Dragons mirrors the one in Rise of Berk and considering their designs aren't usually bad, I'm fine with this. Like the Titan Gronckle, it almost has a natural glow to it, which is probably the best part about its overall design. This was also one of my first Titans so I have a soft spot for it.

 

Likes

  • "Glowing" Patterns - The patterns of this Titan almost make it look like it's naturally glowing, primarily if you decide to make the main color of your Skrill a dark color. Even the interior of the mouth and its teeth appear to be glowing (that probably wasn't intentional but oh well)!
  • Animations - The Skrill is general just has really good animations, especially when it's flying. While not as smooth as the Light Fury animations, they're definitely move nicer to look at than Toothless' animations; they just seem a lot more lively to me. The walking animations are funny too! The way it bounces while it's running amuses me a bit.
  • Speed - One of the best things about this Titan is its blazing speed; it takes a while to start up but once it's going, there isn't much stopping it.

Dislikes

  • Poor Turn Rate- The only thing stopping this Titan from being a better racer than the Sand Wraith is its awful turn rate. While it's nowhere near as bad as the Snow Wraith, it's still much worse than the Sand Wraith or slower dragons like the Stormcutter and Gronckle. Considering it used to be much better at turning when it was first released (from what I've seen at least) and how swift it is in the show, it just doesn't make sense that this thing is so awful at turning.
  • Low Shot Limit - I was hoping the Skrill would have a better shot limit but it only has a shot limit of 4. Now, I was expecting it to have a shot limit of 14 like the Scauldron or even 10 like the Whispering Death but maybe it could've had 6 or 8? One could say "Kas, the official stats of the Skrill says it has a shot limit of 4" but the Eruptodon has a shot limit of 7 and the Deathgripper has a shot limit of 8 and in the game, they both have a shot limit of 6. Therefore, I don't see why the Skrill's shot limit could've been improved juuuuuusst a smidge.

Changes I'd Make

  • Improve the turn rate
  • Add FiFA and sitting idle animations
  • Improve the shot limit - At least to 5 or 6.
  • Improve the recharge rate - Despite what we've seen in the show, this dragon's recharge rate isn't the fastest. Then again, there's no storm clouds this dragon can recharge itself with so I suppose it makes sense.

Recommended?: Yes! It's horrendous turn rate may make it a difficult dragon to race with but that doesn't mean it isn't worth investing in.

 

Rating

Utility: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Skrill has the potential to be an amazing racer with its great speed and access to saddles but its inability to make tight turns without needing to slow down or crashing hinder it greatly. However, that doesn't mean it's impossible to race with this dragon; if you turn on time or slow down just before those rings that speed you up, you and your Titan Skrill buddy can win all the trophies in TRR. In battle events, its low shot limit means it doesn't fare well outside of the recharge station, even if there aren't a lot of Scauldrons and Prickleboggles around. For some reason, its trajectory changes every couple of shots, meaning its aim tends to ship up and down; one minute you'll be hitting the ship just fine but in the next, you'll find your Titan Skrill firing too high or too low. If you know how to aim your dragon, this issue can at least be manageable. In stable missions, the Titan Skrill doesn't really do anything special; it can bring in coins but considering you can get coins from racing, Trading Post jobs, Fireball Frenzy, and battle events, it's not really something you'll find yourself needing all that often after you've worked on some of the quests in the game. Finally, in Dragon Tactics, this dragon is a powerful long-ranged attacker. It can't heal itself or increase its speed and dodge but it's a heavy hitter with two long-ranged attacks (one is its primary attack and the other deals double the damage) and a close ranged attack that deals damage to mulitple enemies; the only problem with that short ranged attack is if it misses, your poor Titan Skrill will be vulnerable and they don't have the best defenses so you could lose'em in the first or second turn if you're not careful.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Skrill has great color options; you can color what is essentially two sets of glowing parts/patterns and the main body. While you can make these "glowing" parts a dark color, I wouldn't recommend it; even if the main body is a light color, it doesn't look that good. That being said, the neon patterns still look good against a brightly colored main body and tend to pop no matter what color you choose.

 

Animations: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Skrill has great animations, having top notch flying animations and a funny walking animation. However, it's missing two things: FiFA (a quick refresher, FiFA = Fire in Flight Animations) and sitting idle animations. It does look super cute when it's looking around though. . .once it gets access to these animations, it get the 10 Happy Papas it rightfully deserves.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Skrill has a great fireball! Or should I say electrical ball? My only problem is the way the fire button looks when a Skrill becomes a Titan; it got duller instead of being more vibrant like the Titan's electrical attack! This lightning blast could also always be brighter and bigger, similar to the one we see in the show but it still looks pretty neat!

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Skrill's design looks awesome! It looks like the electricity within is what's causing it so much of it to glow or look neon. Additionally, this Titan has the bonus of being more ferocious and much cuter than its regular counterpart at the same time. Its face just looks super adorable when you're viewing it from the front! It overall just looks a little more derpy, as if it were saying "Hello world, it is I, the Good Boy. You may love and fear me at the same time." Outside of that, the wings are probably my favorite part about this whole Titan; just look at'em. Need I say more?

 

Final Score: 9.3 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Skrill can be a solid racer if you know how to use it but even with all of its saddles, dragons with better turn rates still have the potential to overtake this Titan. It's a great choice for Dragon Tactics and an okay choice for battle if you're an expert Skrill battler. It's stunning design and equally as stunning lightning blast make it a worthy member of your pack and a force to be reckoned with.

 

That does it with the Titan Skrill! Now we only have one more starter dragon to cover! Last but definitely not least, we have. . .

 

The Titan Shockjaw!

Week #8: Titan Shockjaw

Look at lil' ol' me doing 3 Titans in a week! Shocking, isn't it? Hehe. . . ewe

 

Titan Shockjaw

Overall Opinion: The Titan Shockjaw is one of the more recent Titans done so far, being released in the second half of 2018. While far from one of my favorites, it definitely makes for a good Dreadfall Titan, given its eerie appearance; reminds me of an angler fish!

 

Likes

  • Barbels - I like how big these little things got when the Shockjaw became a Titan. I almost wanna the round tips off and play with them but that'd leave me with a very angry Titan Shockjaw.
  • Eyes - The eyes of this Titan is what makes me think of an angler fish. It makes this TItan look like something you'd see in the deepest parts of the ocean, waiting to patiently to strike its next unsuspecting victim.
  • Design - I probably should've just included the other two features here but I like'em so much, they deserve their own spots on the list. The Titan Shockjaw looks pretty good! From the fin on its head to the tip of its tail, this is a solid looking Titan indeed.

Dislikes

  • White Belly Syndrome - White Belly Syndrome (WBS) is when you can't color in a large part of a dragon and to compensate, the developers let you color in a much smaller portion instead. The "White Belly" part of the name stems from how the part you can't color is usually white and is usually the belly. However, it isn't limited to just white, nor is it limited to the belly; it can be in different colors and effect different parts of the body. Alternative names for this include Red Scale Syndrome (RSS) and White Scale Syndrome (WSS). The Titan Shockjaw was one of the Titans released during a time where the SoD developers thought it would be a good idea to restrict our color options so all the parts that are white/white-ish on the Titan can't be colored; instead, you're able to color in a small part of its face. In fact, I think this is the Titan that made me coin the terms I mentioned earlier.
  • No Titan friendly paints

Changes I'd Make

  • Fix the paints and skins
  • Make the fireball bigger
  • Allow the white portions of the Titan to be colored and have the portion of the face you can color currently be part of the main body color.

Recommended?: If you really like your Shockjaws and/or are a fan of dragons that look like they belong in the deep sea, this Titan is for you. However, if you're not a fan of not being able to completely color your Titan Shockjaw like you could with a regular Shockjaw, leave your buddy be.

 

Rating

Utility: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Shockjaw is actually a pretty decent racer. Like quite a few other dragons, the lack of saddles is the main thing holding it back. This isn't a very good dragon for stable missions; there aren't many quests this Titan can be sent on that earn you gems or eggs or can't be done better by another Titan. With a shot limit of 9, the Titan Shockjaw is a decent battler and is a great choice if there aren't any Scauldrons or Prickleboggles around. However, it's awful to use from the recharge station. In Dragon Tactics, it can increase its speed (and by speed, I mean its range, meaning it can move farther on the battlefield) and dodge and has a mid-ranged primary attack. It's secondary attack is close-ranged but it deals more damage and I believe it leaves your opponents injured (reduces the amount of damage your enemies do and dealing a little side damage before they make their move); all in all, a solid choice for Dragon Tactics.

 

Color Options: 7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Shockjaw can be made as dark or as bright as you want it to be but there's such a large portion of the dragon that you can't color. You're no longer able to color the belly of the dragon and you're unable to color its wing bones or the white horns protruding out its head. Considering you could color all of a regular Shockjaw, this is a major let down.

 

Animations: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

Toothless' animations don't look the worst on the Titan Shockjaw but I wish it'd get its own animations. The Stormcutter's animations were reworked (and that dragon had Toothless animations in the beginning I believe) so why not give this dragon similar treatment?

 

Fireball: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Shockjaw's fireball looks pretty cool but I prefer the regular Shockjaw's fireball; it sort of "pops" more it actually has a nice explosion. The Titan Shockjaw's fireball just calls it a day once it hits its target. It looks to be about the same size of the standard Shockjaw's fireball so that only worsens its case; still, somehow I still really like it. Maybe because it reminds me of a Skrill's electrical blast. That being said, making it bigger and giving it an explosion similar to the regular Shockjaw's will do this fireball justice.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The main thing that makes me want more than one of this Titan is how it looks. It screams deep sea, more so than the Titan Thunderdrum. Imagine seeing this thing like scuba diving at night or something, just staring at you with those eerie blue eyes. . .just to say hi. It'd leave you startled but once you get used to it, you'd realize how amazing this Titan truly is.

 

Final Score: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Shockjaw isn't the worst Titan out there but its lackluster color options and reused animations might deter you from getting one. However, it still looks amazing and is a solid choice for battle and Dragon Tactics. It's a good choice for racing as well but without saddles, it'll find itself left in the dust often.

 

And that wraps up not only the Titan Shockjaw but all the starter dragons! Until they decide to add more that is. . .it seems ridiculous but we never expected them to implement secondary starters either and look what happened. We're now back to doing Titans in a random order (sorta, the next one is a requested one!) but you're more than welcome to suggest a Titan you want to see next. ^^

Week #9: Titan Razorwhip

As requested by CZNZ Dragon Rider, up next is our dragon in shining armor!

 

Titan Razorwhip

Overall Opinion: The Titan Razorwhip is a pretty solid Titan. I love the drastically different color options compared to the regular Razorwhip because you still retain the ability to color this dragon completely; no WSS here, folks! And each section you can color stands out more than it does on the regular Razorwhip. A fancy Titan indeed!

 

Likes

  • Color options - They're a substantial improvement from the regular Razorwhip.
  • Armor-like Design - The Razorwhip already looks like it's wearing armor. When it becomes a Titan, it looks like it upgraded said armor.
  • Animations
  • Ease of Access - You can get a free Razorwhip from the Call of the Death Song expansion pack, mystery egg chests, or just buy the egg from the store. However, unlike most dragon eggs, the Razorwhip is only 500 gems (400 if you're a member) and, like the Skrill and Stormcutter, you can get one in a Dragon Tactics bundle!

Dislikes

  • Red Racing Paint - It's not that this paint isn't Titan friendly. The main problem is, on mobile (even if you're playing in highest quality), the paint reduces the quality of the textures/model, making everything look mushy and the paint look awful. Sadly, this seems like a common trait amongst the Sharp Class dragons.

Changes I'd Make

  • Fix the Red Racing Paint
  • Improve the fireball
  • Give it access to the Rider's Saddle - From what I've seen, this is the best type of saddle in the game so if it can only have one saddle, this should be it.

Recommended?: Yes! It's a rare sight around the Archipelago (much to my surprise) and is as useful, if not a little more so, than the Titan Deadly Nadder. Who wouldn't want to hitch a ride on one of these?

 

Rating

Utility: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Razorwhip has the stats for racing but without saddles, it's left eating the dust of its competitors unless they too are saddle-less. It really excels in stable missions, where there's three quests (so far) that it shines in: Ancient Stones, The Lion's Den, and The Spider's Parlor. Most of those missions can get you a minimum of 300 gems if you succeed! Then there's battle: It's not the best battler because of its slow rate of fire and even slower recharge rate. So sadly, not even its relatively high shot limit of 10 could save it unless there's little to no Scauldrons, Prickleboggles, even Monstrous Nightmare or Whispering Deaths around. It's not a good canidate for the recharge station either; it kinda fires all over the place and it's difficult to aim. Finally, it's a force to be reckoned with in Dragon Tactics. It can increase its defense and regenerate a little health over a few turns and has two mid-ranged attacks at its disposal, one of which injures an opponent (which not only reduces how much damage they deal but deals a little bit of damage over x amount of turns). All in all, a great Titan with some untapped potential.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Razorwhip's color options are a good example for other Titans to follow. While most Titans have the same color options are their regular counterparts, the Titan Razorwhip's change greatly. You can't color the belly separately anymore but instead color different parts of its armor; there's literally a whole line of armor-like scales you're able to color now, plus the "outlines" of its scales can be colored as well. On top of that, you can still color all of the dragon; while you can't color the belly separately, you can still color it. It's just whatever the main color of your dragon is. I'd love to see similar changes in color options for future Titans: Change up what you can color while also keeping the dragon completely customizeable (I wouldn't mind the belly of a dragon being the same color as the main body of the dragon if I could color in say the wing membranes separately).

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Razorwhip had FiFA before any other dragon in the game; not even the almighty Toothless had one. We learned this the hard way when the developers decided to stop the Grounded Firing Animations (GFA) from playing when you fire while flying; this change came along with the Rise of Stormheart update. Then the Hidden World update comes around and now a majority of the dragons come equipped with FiFA. So good on ya, Titan Razorwhip, you were practically born ready. Additionally, it has excellent running and flying animations.

 

Fireball: 1 Happy Papa out of 10

Okay, so I don't hate, let alone dislike, the Titan Razorwhip's fireball; in fact, I think it's really nice. But when you compare it to the regular Razorwhip, you can hardly tell the difference. The biggest change is the explosion when it hits something; it's bigger. If the fireball itself was bigger and a different color, like the near-white blue we see in the show (maybe even get crazy with it and make it as white as snow?), it'd have a better score. But alas, because of changes so miniscule, you might as well not have changed it all, it has earned a practically sad Papa.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Razorwhip is a flying piece of art. If it were to not move an inch and had metallic colors, I'm sure someone would mistake it for a statue. My only complaint is the eyes; I think they should've stayed green. But that's nothing compared to the amazing feature this Titan has; it looks fit for a king and his humble knight!

 

Final Score: 7.8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Razorwhip is a durable, speedy Titan that is worthy of any dragon flock. This Titan has an overall regal look and has excellent color options. While it's fireball could definitely be improved and it could really use a saddle, this Titan excels with stable missions and is a great choice for Dragon Tactics.

 

That's it for the Titan Razorwhip! Not only was that the first [directly] requested Titan/dragon but it's also the first "expansion Titan" that I've reviewed thus far. Stay tuned for the next Titan or dragon and always feel free to leave your own opinions on these winged companions or let me know which one you'd like to see next!

​THE ALL POWERFUL ​STORM SPLITTER

 

​This is my first picture that I've made on my computer, I don't know how I would add textures or details, and I'm only really used to drawing by hand (my profile picture was also drawn by me.)

​I drew an ice dragon. I don't think its good. Yes, it has 3 eyes. I have a habit of drawing dragons with lots of eyes.

This is Cyro. Shes a Protogen. She's also my old profile picture.

 

 

​The Plague Doctor (my viking OC lol.)

[Likes: Dragons, wandering around hunter camps and acting like she owns the place, and then promptly blowing them up with her dragons, flying around in the hidden world (oh did I mention she turns into a dragon? Well she does, the picture of her dragon form is below this.), her best friends

​Hates: getting fired at by others in the school.. her enemies..

Her dragon form:

​Backstory

​(I have never written a backstory before so it might be bad.)

​It was normal at the school as always, Hiccup was working on new inventions, and the twins were destroying stuff, Until Astrid flew in from the training grounds saying she saw hunters coming towards the school. Hiccup and the gang along with all of the other students rushed to the Training grounds to stop the ships from getting into the school and hurting dragons. After a few minutes of fighting the ships, there was a roar so loud that it was heard over all of the growling and explosions coming from the dragons in the school. All of a sudden, a white and purple dragon with metal on its forearms, face, and its legs landed  on the crows nest of the ship and started blasting fireballs made of a black smoke like substance at the students and everyone who was firing at the ship, and they all started backing away. Then the white and purple dragon flew up off of the crows nest of the ship, and blasted a ball of smoke at the ship. When the smoke cleared,  There was a giant hole in the side of the ship, yet no debris anywere. Then the dragon flew back away from the ship, and then flew headfirst into the crows nest, tipping the hunter ship sideways and causing the ship to flip over.  The white dragon looked at hiccup and everyone else. Hiccup looked closely at the dragon, trying to see what species it could be, however, he didnt recognize it as anything he had ever seen before. When he blinked, it was suddenly gone. Later that day when the ship was being removed from the school, Fishlegs ran up to Hiccup and said he found something interesting. Hiccup and Toothless followed Fishlegs, and he took them to the hunter ship from earlier that day. It had been flipped so the place where the black smoke hit it was visible. Fishlegs started saying that the fireball wasn't smoke, but it was burning hot ashes, that were hot enough to entirely disintegrate  the materials from the ship within seconds. Then Fishlegs handed hiccup a dragon card with a drawing of the white and purple dragon on it, yet there was no info about it written on the card. Fishlegs was shining with excitement.

"ooh! I cant wait to learn more about it! Can we go search for it?! Pleeease?" 

​Hiccup thought about it for a while, thinking about how dangerous this dragon was, but then he remembered all of the dragons he had faced before. He agreed with fishlegs, and told him to get Astrid and the others. Fishlegs was so happy that he was running around looking for everyone. when he was searching for snotlout, He ran into Plague and Storm Splitter. 

​"Sorry Plague! We are going to search for that white dragon and I'm so excited!!"

​He kept running, but out of the corner of his eye he saw Plague glare at him. He ignored it and found Snotlout, and they all started flying out towards the ocean. 

​"Why are we searching for this dumb dragon?? Nobody even saw where it went!! I could be training right now!" Snotlout yelled.

​"Yes but that dragon could be dangerous, or it could get caught by dragon hunters and used to destroy the School. " Hiccup said.

All of a sudden, Stormfly stopped flying and growled.

"Whats wrong girl?"  Astrid pet Stormfly.

​ "Hh whats that over there? Is it a giant bird? CHICKEN IS NOT AMUSED!!!" Tuffnutt yelled. 

​Hiccup got a worried expression on his face when he turned and saw the white and purple dragon staring directly at them.

​Then, the white dragon flew towards them faster than they could all react.

It pushed Hiccup off of toothless and they both started falling. Stormfly blasted a fireball at the white dragon, but the dragon flipped around and fired a ball of ashes at her fireball before it hit her, causing a giant explosion of ashes. Astrid looked around trying to think of a plan, but suddenly a titan Stormcutter grabbed her and Stormfly and started flying away from the others. When she looked back, she saw everybody else being carried by titan stormcutters as well, But the titan stormcutter carrying Hiccup and toothless looked.. familiar.. Storm Splitter. When she turned again to face forwards, she saw the white and purple dragon flying ahead of her. After a couple of hours of flying, they landed on a rock, and the titan stormcutters stayed close. The white and purple dragon walked closer, and Astrid went to grab her axe

​The titan stormcutters growled at her and she instantly dropped it on the ground. The white dragon smacked the axe far away from astrid with its tail, and then it sat down. Hiccup looked at it closely. It just sat there castually. Hiccup looked at Astrid with a confused look, and then everybody looked at each other. "uh... Plague?" Fishlegs said in a confused voice. Hiccup turned to look back at the white dragon, but instead of the dragon.. He saw Plague sitting where the dragon was. He looked at her in a confused way, until he looked at her hands and saw.. the white dragon's hands.. "Wait.. What?" Astrid asked. Then Plague stood up, and flicked around a long white tail with a giant purple fin at the end, and purple spikes.

​"Boo" Plague said

​"WAIT YOURE A DRAGON??" yelled the twins.

​"Can you blow up trees?! I love blowing up trees! You can come with us! LETS GOO" Yelled Tuffnut

​"Nobody is supposed to know about this, so no, I can't help you blow up trees."

"​Youre no fun!" said Ruffnutt.

​"Why cant anybody know?" asked Astrid.

​"Just act like you dont know, Ok??" Plague said in a serious tone.

"We won't tell anyone." said Hiccup. "Right Guys?"

"I still wish we could blow up trees.."  Said the twins in a sad voice.

​Then Plague waved at her titan stormcutters, and they took them all back to berk. To this day, nobody knows that Plague can turn into a dragon, except hiccup and the others. Plague shows up at hunter raids to destroy ships every once and a while in her dragon form, but It still remains a secret.

 

(If you reached the end of my signature and read through my bad character backstory, PM me and I'll make a drawing for ya.) 

 I will add more to this and fix it later.

Thankies!!!

Thank you so so so much for doing the Razorwhip! This really helped, I had no idea that the Razorwhip was so good in Dragon Tactics and especially in Stable Missions!

And... since I love Sharp Class I've made a choice! I WILL TITAN MY RAZORWHIP!!! :D

Now just one little problem... I got the double egg glitch so I got two Razorwhips instead of 1 from the expansion (not that I'm complaining! XD) so if I titan up only one I'd feel really bad for the other... XD I knew the Razorwhip was too good to be true! XD

But regardless, at least I'll have one Adult and one Titan! :D

Once again, thank you so much, you have really helped me make a decision and I can't wait to see your other reviews!

Thanks! :D

Week #10: Titan Buffalord

As requested by Kiki Septic Eye, here comes everyone's favorite explosive meatball!

 

Titan Buffalord

Overall Opinion: The Titan Buffalord marked the end of an era. . .kinda. For a while, all Titans and dragons that came out after this Titan's released had White Scale Syndrome and this wouldn't end until the Hidden World Update rolled in and the Deathgripper came in. . .oh, and this was the first Titan to be released too early (to my current knowledge at least) and had to be removed from the game before being officially released; it was acidentally released alongside the not-so-good Titan Death Song. . .onto my official opinion, I love this Titan and for a while, it had my favorite fire animation in the entire game. It gives an intimidating look to a normally docile creature, giving you another reason to not run up to it and poke it with a stick.

 

Likes

  • Overall design - It looks more intimidating but still retains some of its cuteness. I mean, look at its little footies! The sharpest claws can't make those look scary.
  • Fireball - As I said before, this used to be my favorite fire animation in the game until more Titans and dragons came along and bested it. Maybe it's just me but I feel this fireball paved the way for Titan fireballs because after this one was released, they all looked pretty diddly darn amazing (well, for the most part anyways).
  • Color options
  • Animations - The Buffalord animations are cute. Ergo, the Titan Bufflord looks cute with them too.

Dislikes

  • "Max Happiness Animation" - Some dragons have smoke coming from their nostrils or in the Typhoomerang's case, covered in flames when they're extremely happy. The Buffalord drools when its super happy but the Titan Buffalord's drool doesn't really look like drool. It's all. . .unreasonably pointy and kinda looks like shards dropping from its mouth.

Changes I'd Make

  • Make the saliva the same as the regular Buffalord's. If it absolutely had to be changed, I would make it thicker and/or more green but that's about it.

Recommended?: Yes but only if you love Buffalords. The Titan Buffalord looks great but it's more of a trophy dragon than anything else.

 

Rating

Utility: 3 Happy Papas out of 10

Sadly, the Titan Buffalord isn't useful. It's a slow racer but it has a good turn rate and saddles so you're more than welcome to use speed boosts to get this guy to victory. It's not the best battler with an average shot limit of 6 and a slow RoF and recharge rate. It can do pretty good in stable missions but there are other dragons, like the Titan Razorwhip and Titan Deadly Nadder, that are not only easier to get but can do its job better. To make things worse for the poor flying meatball, it's one of a big handful of dragons that isn't available in Dragon Tactics (yet). All in all, this is primarily a trophy dragon.

 

Color Options: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Buffalord has great color options but the horns and the spots on the dragon are dependent on the main color of the dragon, just like the Titan Zippleback. But since it's on a bigger scale than the Titan Zippleback, this Titan is just short of a perfect score.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Buffalord's animations are unique and [are] just cute to watch. Its sitting idle animations consists of it somehow spooking itself and puffing up a bit. . .and speaking of puffing up, it expands when it fires. Sadly, this wasn't carried over into the FiFA but at least it's one of the many dragons who recieved one with the Hidden World update.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

I can't stress how much of an improvement this fireball is. It's substantially bigger than the standard Buffalord's fireball and so much brighter. . .actually, a better way to put it is it resembles an explosion you'd see in an action movie. This thing produces its own special effects it seems and discards that whole "Cool guys don't look into explosions" idea (or is it "walk" into explosions? Either way). I'm gonna have to take back what I said about the Titan Nadder and apply it to the Titan Buff instead: This is how a Titan fireball should be done.

 

Design: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

A normally cute, docile dragon given a terrifying look. A common trope throughout the Titans but for this one in particular, it makes more sense. The Buffalord doesn't really care about what's going on around it unless it's not on its turf, and even then it doesn't respond right away. With the Titan being extra intimidating, it lessens the chances of it being messed with. A dragon hunter might not even want to set foot near this thing with those massive spikes and horns. And speaking of horns, the only reason this doesn't have a flawless 10 is its horns; they're just a liiiiittle too big and while it adds onto the look, I can't help but feel a little bad for it. They look too heavy and its neck practically non-existent!

 

Final Score: 8.3 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Buffalord sadly doesn't have much going for it in terms of utlity but at least it makes for an awesome Dreadfall dragon. It has great animations and a fireball that a Titan would hidefor. It's color options are great for the most part, with its horns and spots being relying heavily on the main color of your fellow Titan Buff.

 

That's it for the Titan Buffalord! One of my favorite Titans in the game so far, though admittedly it has gone down the list. Feel free to leave your own opinions on the subject or recommend which Titan (or non-Titan) I do next!

Week #10: Titan Deathgripper

One of the more recent dragons with an even more recent Titan release!

 

Titan Deathgripper

Overall Opinion: The Titan Deathgripper is one of my top favorite Titans. An already scary (and *cough* kinda derpy) dragon given an even scarier look! Admittedly, I the forelimbs are a bit to thick but it's one of those situations where it looks good from certain angles and bad from others.

 

Likes

  • Overall design
  • Animations - The Deathgripper has its own top notch animations, with the flying animations being my personal favorite.
  • Size - It's huge compared to a standard Deathgripper!
  • Color options

Dislikes

  • Lackluster speed - Like all dragons that are capable of keeping up with a Night Fury--except the Light Fury--the Titan Deathgripper's speed was nerfed compared to what we see in the Hidden World. In fact, it was dramatically nerfed and is out-speed by a majority of the dragons in the game. A dragon this fast should at least be able to compete against the Skrill or Woolly Howl but instead, it can barely keep up with some of the starter dragons.

Changes I'd Make

  • Improve speed - Sadly it can't be Fury speed for obvious reasons but if it can at least be as fast as a Sand Wraith or even a Skrill, I'd be happy.

Recommended?: Yes! But if you're looking for something swift and viable in stable missions or battle events, this isn't the Titan for you.

 

Rating

Utility: 5.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deathgripper is too slow to be viable in racing unless you have Speed Boosts. However, it does have a fairly good turn rate and it has access to the Rider's Saddle, the best type of saddle in the game so far. It can be used in stable missions but there are dragons that can do its job just as good, if not better. It's a poor battler, with an average shot limit of six and average RoF and recharge rate. It's an awful dragon to use from the recharge rate because of how "bouncy" it is, making this a very difficult dragon to aim. Finally, in Dragon Tactics, it can boost its dodge rate and regenerate a little health over a few turns. It's primary move is a mid-ranged attack that has a chance to burn enemies; once that burn lands, it deals a very high amount of damage and can potentially knock the enemy out in the next turn. It's secondary attack is a close ranged one but not only does it deal more damage but it also poisons the enemy.

 

Color Options: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deathgripper has great color options, with the biggest drawback being you can't make the main color of the dragon white. . .and for some reason, said main color was moved to the "Details" section instead staying under "Skin". The good thing about it though is you can color the wing memberanes separate from the main color of the dragon, something you couldn't do with the standard Deathgripper.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deathgripper's animations are great! They look adorable when they're sleeping or looking around as they wait for you to move too far and look mighty and proud when they're taking to the skies with those giant wings of theirs.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

Like the Titan Razorwhip, I don't necessarily dislike this Titan's fireball. But when you compare it to the standard Deathgripper's fireball, it barely changes. It just changes its color a smidge and the explosion is a little different. The only reason it has a higher score than the Titan Razorwhip is because while the change is small, it's more noticeable. I'd love for the fireball to look more like it did in the movie; the front of it can be orange or white and the rest of it can be green. Additionally, it'd be nice if it was bigger and brighter.

Update: I contemplated removing my old review but instead, I've decided to leave it there. So either the Admins and/or Developers have been secretly reading my reviews or just sheer luck--probably just sheer luck but I feel happier when I think it's the former--but with the 3.1 update came a new fireball for the Titan Deathgripper! This fireball is still green but there's some orange thrown in it and it's bigger; a lot bigger! And it has a glittery effect to it, similar to the Flightmare's fire/mist ball! This is just the change the Titan Deathgripper needed to its fireball and I'm so glad it was actually worked on.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deathgripper's design looks great, so great that it made me rethink my top 10 favorite Titans. It's derpy face with incredibly large tusks puts the "Death" in its name and the tail has gone from a needle of doom to a blade of destruction. And somehow, its little footsies are still cute.

 

Final Score: 8.9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Deathgripper is more of a trophy dragon but it has some potential in Dragon Tactics. It's an intimidating dragon to take to the skies with but its derpy face is enough to make any dragon rider realize this dragon can have a heart if its in the right hands. Originally this Titan's fireball wasn't much to look at when you compared it to the regular version but an update came around and fixed that right up!

 

That's it for the Titan Deathgripper! This was actually going to be one of the first Titans I covered but then I went on a "starter dragon" trend and whatnot. Feel free to leave your own opinions or suggestions for future Titans/non-Titan dragons!

Week #11: Titan Scuttleclaw

Summer has started in my area and time went by so fast (yet so slow at the same time), I forgot to do one last week! To make up for it, I'll probably be doing a few non-Titan dragons alongside the Titans. ^^ Up next, we have a dragon that we've never seen as an adult outside of the games and the first trailer for the Hidden World!

 

Titan Scuttleclaw

Overall Opinion: Probably the closest thing to a Deadly Nadder/Hideous Zippleback hybrid we'll get, the Titan Scuttleclaw is an interesting little fellow. . .or should I say big in this case? At the moment, this is the only Titan I'm aware of that actually gets more color options than its regular counterpart: The belly! You can't change the belly color of a regular Scuttleclaw but the Titan Scuttleclaw wanted a change of pace it seems. Its appearance can take a while to get used to but once you do, you'll find this is quite a nice Titan to have by your side.

 

Likes

  • Color options
  • Fireball (Especially in Dragon Tactics, it's just stunning)
  • Dragon Tactics performance

Dislikes

  • Reused animation - Okay, I don't really dislike the Nadder animations on the Scuttleclaw, I just think it would've been nice if it had its own animations.
  • Red racing stripes reduce the texture of this dragon's skin on mobile.

Changes I'd Make

  • Unique animations - Not even a lot has to be changed because again, I don't have a huge problem with the Scuttleclaw and Nadder sharing animations. But it doesn't really scream. . .Scuttleclaw. I'd love for it to act more hyper and/or be more jumpy like we see in the films!
  • Fix the skin problems in Dragon Tactics - For some reason, the Titan Scuttleclaw has standard Scuttleclaw in Dragon Tactics. 

Recommended?: Yes! The appearance may be a deterrent to some but if you can look past that, this Titan is pretty useful.

 

Rating

Utility: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scuttleclaw is decent in stable missions, though there are dragons that can fill the role and do the job better. It's an okay battler, with great speed and a shot limit of 8 but it may find difficulty winning against dragons with a higher shot limit like the Whispering Death, Monstrous Nightmare, and of course, the Scauldron. Additionally, it can't be used from the recharge station all that well because it fires all over the place--maybe that's its hyperactive nature kicking in. While not the best at turning, it's certainly a lot better than dragons like the Skrill and Snow Wraith and can definitely give a Sand Wraith a run for its money if you're an experienced racer. Fortunately, it has saddles to make your flight just a little bit easier. Finally, it's a great dragon to use in Dragon Tactics. It's primary mid-ranged attack has a 50% chance of leaving a burn on an opponent and, like the Deathgripper, said burn deals a lot of damage and can deal with your enemy in 1-2 turns if it lands. It's secondary close-ranged attack not only deals more damage but also leaves the enemy vulnerable to getting hit for that turn; that means you and your dragons can gang up on said enemy and always land a hit until they're gone. It can also heal itself over a period of turns. All-in-all a very useful Titan.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scuttleclaw is an interesting Titan. It actually adds a new color option to the dragon: You can now color it's belly! Normally when a dragon becomes a Titan, you lose such an ability (*glares at the Titan Triple Stryke*) but this Titan came in and flipped the scipt; and I love it! It has solid color options overall.

 

Animations: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scuttleclaw has the same animations as the Deadly Nadder. They don't look bad, given that it has the body and build as the Deady Nadder but the Scuttleclaw isn't very. . .bird-like outside of appearance, especially the Titan Scuttleclaw. Because the Deadly Nadder was intentionally made to not be so expressive, I feel that takes away from this dragon; they seemed very expressive in the second film as babies. If it had some unique animations--not even all of the animations have to change--this dragon would have a chance at a higher score.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

This is how the Titan Deathgripper's fireball could've looked like. Did the design of the Titan Scuttleclaw's fireball change much from the regular Scuttleclaw? No but it's much bigger and it's a different shade of green, probably my favorite shade of green. And in Dragon Tactics? Pinch me, I must be dreaming, because that fireball looks like the Titan Flightmare's but upgraded. If that was applied outside of the minigame, I wouldn't be able to use the 0 - 10 scale to rate it; it'd go way overboard!

 

Design: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scuttleclaw looks like it's trying to be as cute as a regular Scuttleclaw. . .and it's failing miserably. Yet somehow, I find myself loving this Titan. Even though it's pretty much the same design as the one from Rise of Berk, I like this version a lot more than that one. . .maybe because we can change the color. Either way, the design of this Titan can definitely make it hard to love for some but if you're anything like me, you'll come to love this Titan fairly quickly.

 

Final Score: 8.7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scuttleclaw is tough face to love for many; so may even go on to say that it's a face only a mother could love. But don't let its look deter you! This dragon makes for an excellent racer and Dragon Tactics ally! Not to mention while the dragon itself might not look the best, its fireball is pretty neat!

 

That's about it for the Titan Scuttleclaw. Sorry again for the delay! ^^; Things should remain on schedule from here on out, especially with the ongoing summer break. Stay tuned for more and feel free to leave your own opinions and/or suggestions!

Week #11: Screaming Death

In honor of my brother's birthday, I shall review his favorite dragon this week.

 

Screaming Death

Overall Opinion: Ah, the Screaming Death. . .for someone who doesn't really watch anything HTTYD all that often, I'm [pleasantly] surprised this is my brother's favorite dragon. The Screaming Death is a lot smaller than it is in the show, with good reason of course; this thing is huge and would make the game practically unplayable. Still, it's at least massive compared to the other dragons and it's as intimidating as it is in the show.

 

Likes

  • Color options - Like its Titan form, the sky's the limit when it comes to coloring it.
  • Fireball - While not as bright and cool as it is in the show (and certainly not as cool as the Titan SD's fireball), it still pretty nice.
  • Animations - The snake-like animations of the Whispering Death suit the Screaming Death perfectly. . .which makes sense, given that the Screaming Death is just a mutated Whispering Death.

Dislikes

  • No paints/skins available

Changes I'd Make

  • Give it access to some paints or even a Hero Skin. . .okay, maybe not a Hero Skin; we don't need a repeat of the Crimson Goregutter here. But access to the Red Racing Stripes at least would be good enough for me!

Recommended?: If you're in need of a battle dragon and/or really like Screaming Death, by all means; get one, get a dozen, maybe even a hundred! But if the Screaming Death isn't your cup of tea and you have access to a Scauldron or Prickleboggle (both of which are better battle dragons and can be used in Dragon Tactics), I wouldn't advise getting one.

 

Rating

Utility: 6 Happy Papas out of 10

The Screaming Death is as useful as its Titan variant. There's only one stable mission it really excels in (Anti-Landing Party, and even then, it doesn't perform as well as the Titan) and for stable missions that it could be used in, other dragons can easily take its spot and even do the job better. It still isn't available in Dragon Tactics and it isn't the fastest racer around, though it does have access to saddles. It's far from the worst battler, with a nice shot limit of 14 and a fast recharge rate, but the Prickleboggle and Scauldron have an even faster recharge rate and RoF respectively, making them better choices for battle.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

You can color this dragon however you want; you can make it as dark as a Night Fury or keep its signature white and red colors!

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

As I mentioned eariler, this is just a mutated Whispering Death so it's no surprise these animations look great on the Screaming Death.

 

Fireball: 8.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Screaming Death's fireball is great but I would love for it to have the little "side flares" you see in the show and on the Titan. However, it does have the "clean" look of the fireballs we see in the show. I think it even has a little bit more detail. . .but given how fast that Screaming Death was shooting those fireballs, I'm not surprised not too much detail was put into them; they're gone in a blink of an eye!

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

It looks like a Screaming Death. . .sweet. In all seriousness, the only drawback is the size but that dragon was huge. . .and it wasn't even fully grown. It'd make the game lag too much, and it lags enough as it is, so sacrifices had to be made!

 

Final Score: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Screaming Death only really excels in battle events but even then--just like everything else--it's outclassed by other dragons. However, it has nice fantastic color options and the animations--while reused (again, with good reason)--look great on it.

 

That's it for the Screaming Death! Feel free to leave your own opinions and suggestions!

Week #11: Scauldron

Normally when a dragon has a Titan form, I do that first. . .but I don't have a picture of a Titan Scauldron (at least during the upgrade like I do for the other Titans) yet and I just hatched a Scauldron. So give a warm welcome to this fan favorite!

 

Scauldron

Overall Opinion: Initially, I didn't think much of the Scauldron; I just knew they were good battle dragons because I couldn't go to single battle event without seeing at least one. After getting one of my own and rewatching the episode with Scauldy the Scauldron, I liked this sea dragon a lot more and now I have a mini army of them. Once you get a hold of one, you'll quickly see why so many people want them and why so many more have at least one in their arsenal.

 

Likes

  • Color options
  • Stubby limbs - They're especially cute when the Scauldron's a baby!
  • Battle Event performance

Dislikes

  • The Warpaint gives your Scauldron the Hero look. The Hero Skin looks nice but that doesn't mean I want it with my warpaint; fortunately, this isn't a problem with the Titan.
  • Walking Animations - They don't look bad. . .it's more they look ridiculous. The Scauldron's huge belly is being dragged across the ground. I can only imagine how painful it is to be a Scauldron in this game.

Changes I'd Make

  • Fix the Warpaint so it doesn't put the Hero Skin on your Scauldron
  • Belly Protection - I can see this looking similar to the apron Hiccup wore in the 3rd HTTYD movie. . .just on a much bigger scale. Anything to protect one of our precious sea dragons.

Recommended?: Yes! Even if you aren't a huge fan on the Scauldron, this dragon is still quite useful to have.

 

Rating

Utility: 7.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Scauldron doesn't really do good in stable missions (not ones that get you gems, runes, or eggs at least; there's at least one mission dedicated to Scauldrons that gets you coins) and it isn't the best racer around (though like many dragons, it has access to saddles). In Dragon Tactics, it has access to a mid-ranged primary move that can poison your enemy, a close-ranged secondary move that can injure your enemy (just a refresher, Injured is a status condition that reduces your enemy's damage output and deals damage to them for x turns), and to top it all off, it can increase its own damage output. A solid choice for DT! Finally, there's battle events. The Scauldron is the best dragon to use in battle events so far and, unlike the Titan Thunderdrum, it's good no matter what platform you use it on or how you battle. It has a shot limit of 14, a fast rate of fire, and recharge rate fast enough to at least get you 1-3 extra shots before needing to recharge. While its newly acquired FiFA make it just a smidge more difficult to aim from the recharge station, it hasn't changed to the point where it's impossible like some dragons (sorry Triple Stryke). This is perhaps the best thing the Scauldron is known for. . .quite interesting that the Scauldron's strongest points all have to do with combat in some shape or form.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Scauldron has nice color options and you can make it as vibrant as the coral reef or as dark as the deep sea.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Scauldron has nice animations! The only problem is seeing it walk; it's constantly dragging its massive belly against the ground and I can't help but feel terrible for it. Sometimes i'll ride my Scauldron and instead of walking, I'll be hopping around left and right or flying around until there's a body of water for them to swim in. . .and speaking of swimming, I love that they look like sea monsters while they're swimming. Somehow I feel like they think they're hiding. . .even though they're in plain sight.

 

Fireball: 6 Happy Papas out of 10

Once again, I don't dislike this fireball but when you look at the Tide Glider or Windwalker's fireballs (or waterballs in this case), it's pretty. . .meh. If it could look more like the aforementioned Tide Glider or Windwalker, that'd be great! But instead, it has the "generic" or "base" fire turned blue; it reminds me of the Typhoomerang and Stormcutter's fireballs. . .and I'm not a big fan of that.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Scauldron looks great and is even cuter than the ones we've seen in the show. . .then again, most of the time when we saw them in the show, they were going after something. The limbs look just a smidge stubbier and their facial expression looks more derpy.

 

Final Score: 8.7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Scauldron, while lacking in stable missions and the racing department, is an excellent canidate for combat. It's the best battle event dragon in the game (2nd best on mobile, being only bested by the Titan Thunderdrum, and that's only if it's firing from the recharge station), a great choice for Dragon Tactics, and its color options allow more than its personality to be a vibrant as the sea itself.

 

That's it for the Scauldron! Feel free to leave your opinions and/or suggestions!

Like so many others

I just found this thread and those are some really thorough reviews! Love that you took the time to weight pros and cons for each of the dragons and look at the titan and adult forms as semi-different dragons but still compare them with regards to the improvemens or the opposite. OH and I love that each review has an image - though, it's not always that easy to see the features, especially for the titan images.

Just gonna leave this comment so I can find the thread again in the future :)

Week #12: Titan Death Song

As requested by EllaAcademyofBerk, let's give a welcome to the Titan that's more deadly than a group/pack/pod of sirens!

 

Titan Death Song

Overall Opinion: This was the Titan that made me decide that when a new Titan comes out, wait until someone else Titans up their dragon and makes a video on it or goes around the Archipelago with it. Like the Titan Screaming Death, the Titan Death Song is a SoD exclusive. . .sadly, it doesn't look nowhere near as good as that Titan. From the massive frills protruding from the sides of its head to the rather interesting spines/fins (what would you even call them?) on its tail, this Titan is just too over-the-top.

 

Likes

  • Color Options - While not as vibrant as the regular Death Song, the Titan Death Song still has good color options.
  • Eyes - Most Titans don't change their eye color when they become. . .well, a Titan. The Titan Death Song's eye color change looks really cool and is probably the best part of this Titan.
  • Animations

Dislikes

  • Design
  • Fireball

Changes I'd Make

  • Change the design - Reduce the size of those massive frills and back spikes, remove the wing tears, and keep the tail things the same as they are on the regular Death Song. . .just make'em a bit bigger to look good with the size increase of the dragon. If just one of these changes were made (primarily the head frill one), I'd like this Titan so much more.
  • Change the fireball - Make it look like a thicker amber substance and make it a darker/more saturated color. Right now, it looks like an explosive chunk of amber and I'm not too fond of it; it definitely looks like it'll knock a dragon out of the air on contact but it doesn't look like it'll trap one.

Recommended?: If you're a tried-and-true Death Song fan, this could be a good Titan for you but even then, I can't fully recommend it. I just don't like how it looks and unlike the Titan Scuttleclaw, I can't look past them. If you're able to ignore the bad looks, it can be a bit useful so it's definitely not the worst Titan to have in that sense.

 

Rating

Utility: 6.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Death Song has the potential to be a really solid racer but without saddles, it will struggle to keep up with dragons like the Sand Wraith and even the Scuttleclaw. It's an above-average battler with a shot limit of 8 and can be used from the recharge station on mobile; however, it doesn't fire as fast--or is as easy to aim--as a Scauldron. As for stable missions, it isn't as useful as the Titan Zippleback or Stormcutter but it can still snag you a sack of gems: Loki's Maze and The Long Patrol are two such quests with a gem reward but there are better dragons to use in both quests. This Titan is sadly not yet available in Dragon Tactics.

 

Color Options: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Death Song has good color options and you can pretty much color anything you were able to color on the regular Death Song. However, the main body color isn't as vibrant as the regular Death Song. It's primarily evident if you try to make the dragon white; it'll look gray instead. That's the only thing stopping this Titan from getting a 10 in this category.

 

Animations: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Death Song has Skrill animations but it looks good on this dragon. However, it'd be nice if this dragon had its own animations! Maybe it can do something with its cute little arms, something we don't see happen with most stubby armed dragons (if not all stubby armed dragons).

 

Fireball: 4 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan's Death Song fireball is like an explosive chunk of amber. I like the amber-shot of the regular Death Song a lot better and I wish that was applied to the Titan Death Song's fireball. It could have a thicker stream of amber trailing behind it and become a bigger chunk of amber when it reaches its target. Since it's thicker, it can be a darker color! I can't give it a 1 though; it is a big change and when it hits the ground, little pieces of amber fly out. It's kind of small but a very nice attention to detail.

 

Design: 2.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Death Song is on the complete opposite side of the spectrum of the Titan Dramillion: It's too over the top. Unlike the Titan Stormcutter, which obtained wing tears that made the dragon's wings look like bird wings, the tears in the Titan Death Song don't look good on it. The massive head frill clip into the wings when the dragon is flying and look downright ridiculous on the dragon's not-so-massive head. The back spikes are also too big but they don't look as ridiculous. Then there's the tail fins; I'm not a fan of how they curl up at the end and how they're in such close proximity together (or it sinch it's one long fin). All-in-all. . .I just strongly dislike the design.

 

Final Score: 6 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Death Song doesn't look that great but if you really like Death Songs, you'll find this Titan can be quite useful. It's a solid racer, minus the lack of saddles and it can be used in stable missions for acceptable results. It's fireball is definitely different from the regular Death Song's (a much bigger change than the Titan Rumblehorn at least) but it's more an explosive amber chunk than a blast of liquid amber.

 

That's it for the Titan Death Song! Funnily enough, as I was writing this, I began contemplating getting another Titan Death Song. For the longest time, I kept telling myself, "I'll never get another one of these again," and now I'm tempted to get another one. xD Feel free to leave your own opinons and suggestions!

Week #12: Titan Sentinel

Let's give a warm welcome to the next Titan on our list!

 

Titan Sentinel

Overall Opinion: The Titan Sentinel is, in a nutshell, a faster, cooler Elder Sentinel. However, the Elder Sentinel is covered in neon green moss and you can color the entirety of it. The Titan Sentinel's currently the only dragon who's inability to be colored entirely is justified within the lore of the HTTYD universe.

 

Likes

  • Fireball
  • Animations - Normally, stiff animations are bad on a dragon but it works on the Titan Sentinel. This dragon is essentially a living stature so those stiff, rigid movements make sense. At the same time, it has smooth flying animations and it looks adorable while it's roaring at the sky as it waits for you to stray too far.
  • Textures - It looks like a breathing statue.

Dislikes

  • "Beard" - The little beard thing it has going on just doesn't look go on it.
  • Wings don't touch the ground - When the dragon's on land, the wings don't touch the ground. Considering this thing mostly likely walks on its wings, it doesn't make sense that they don't touch the ground but when idle, they just. . .float. It looks unnatural. This could probably be fixed by making the wings longer.
  • Walking animation - As mentioned earlier, this dragon more than likely walks on its wings. Of course, it could be like the Skrill and alternate but the way the wings are held up doesn't look good. In fact, it looks particularly bad on the Titan Sentinel because the wing tips clip into each other more than they do on the regular Sentinel.
  • Moss - I get that the Sentinel is a dragon that is normally motionless for so long, moss makes its home on the dragon's back. But the Titan Sentinel's neon green moss is an eyesore if I'm being completely honest. I know moss can be that color but it doesn't even look like moss on the dragon; just some weird green coating on its back.

Changes I'd Make

  • Make the moss a different color, leave the regular Sentinel's moss untouched, or make the moss section smaller - It could be a darker green or look as it did on the regular Sentinel. I would love for you to be able to change the color of the moss like you can on the regular Sentinel but. . .it's moss. You're not actually supposed to be able to change the color of it (even if, again, that's what I loved about the regular Sentinel). Alternatively, there could be less moss on the dragon in general, though it probably doesn't make sense that it loses moss when it gets older.
  • Make the wings longer so they touch the ground
  • Change the walking animation - When the Deadly Nadder or bipedal Skrill walks, it tucks its wings close to its body. If the Titan Sentinel has to stay bipedal, it should do the same instead of looking like every step is gonna lead into a grand flight. Alternatively, it can walk on its wings like the Monstrous Nightmare or Stormcutter.

Recommended?: Yes! It looks pretty great and it's a solid choice for combat.

 

Rating

Utility: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sentinel, while faster than the Elder Sentinel, is still a pretty slow racer and the lack of saddles only makes its case worse. While not the worst choice for stable missions, there are other dragons that outclass it. It's a slightly-above average battler, with a shot limit of 8, and can be used from the recharge station on mobile. Finally, in Dragon Tactics, it has access to two mid-ranged attacks, one of which hits multiple enemies and has a chance to stun them. It can also heal itself.

 

Color Options: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

You can make your Titan Sentinel blend in with the blue skies or the green forests, though you can't color all of it. Sadly, it has White Scale Syndrome (or Green Scale Syndrome in this case); instead of being able to color in all of its back like before, you can now color in beneath the spikes on its back and head. . .which is hard to notice when the moss over-powers it substantially.

 

Animations: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sentinel's animations are great for the most part. The flying animation is great, the sitting idle animation is kinda cute, and it looks spectacular when its sitting. The real problem is the walking animation, and it's not even the animation as a whole; it's the wings. The Armorwing and Boneknapper look okay when they have their wings spread while running--if anything, it kinda makes'em look funny. But the Titan Sentinel is in that awkward middle ground, in that it has its wings up but they're not spread. And that makes the tips clip into each other, worse than on the regular Sentinel. The wings should either be close to the body like the Nadder or it should walk on its wings like the Stormcutter.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

I'll admit, the blue fire kinda came outta nowhere. Does it make sense on this dragon? No. Does it look awesome? Definitely! It's much bigger than the regular Sentinel's fireball and it's an entirely different color! This is perhaps one of the biggest fireball changes between the regular and Titan stages of a dragon so far.

 

Design: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

Other than the moss and the beard thing, the Titan Sentinel doesn't look half bad! It's huge, it still has the rock-like scales the Sentinel is known for, and it looks like the type of dragon you'd go to during a quest to find out where you have to go to find whatever you're looking for. 

 

Final Score: 8.6 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Sentinel is an excellent dragon for combat and while its moss covered back might be hard to look at and some of its animations could definitely use some work, just about everything else about this Titan is great. From its huge size to its amazing fireball, you'll want this stone guardian watching over your stables.

 

That's it for the Titan Sentinel! Feel free to leave your opinions and suggestions!

Week #13: Titan Speed Stinger

This next Titan was decided after exploring Icestorm Island a lot and levelling up an individual of this species named Nyoom.

 

Titan Speed Stinger

Overall Opinion: Ah, the Titan Speed Stinger. . .the Titan many wanted, alongside the Scauldron, Woolly Howl, Sand Wraith, and Changewing. This speedy little dragon was practically useless until the Dragon Tactics update rolled around and gave it something it can finally participate in alongside the other flying dragons. . .Dragon Tactics. Without it, the Titan Speed Stinger would be hardly anything outside of a trophy dragon. A really fast, flightless, trophy dragon.

 

Likes

  • Fireball - The Speed Stinger doesn't even breathe fire, let alone acid, but here it does. I'm not complaining though; the Titan Speed Stinger's fireball is one of the best ones in the game so far.
  • Design - It has stripes like the Alpha Speed Stinger and cool looking eyebrows.

Dislikes

  • Lack of utility - The greatest drawback to the Titan Speed Stinger is the fact that it's flightless, and to make matters worse, it still can't run across water like the Speed Stingers from Race to the Edge. Try not to get in the water on the back of one of these; they can't jump out of water.
  • Face - This isn't really a "dislike" but it's not something I like either. This dragon has an excellent side profile for its face. . .but when you look at it from the front, it looks like Picture Day gone wrong. It's not cute like the regular Speed Stinger or intimidating like the Titan Deathgripper; it looks too ridiculous in my book.
  • Red Racing stripes reduce the quality of the textures on mobile
  • White Belly Syndrome - You can no longer change the color of the belly of the Titan Speed Stinger. I don't dislike it as much as I do on other dragons but if you were able to change the belly color on the regular Speed Stinger, why couldn't that be carried over to the Titan?

Changes I'd Make

  • Alter the face a little bit so the front view of the Titan Speed Stinger doesn't look so ridiculous.
  • Fix the Red Racing Stripes.
  • Allow the color of the belly to be changed. This can be done by grouping the stripes together with the fins and eyebrows under one color section (Details or Patterns).
  • Make more stable missions exclusively for the Titan Speed Stinger - There's only one mission that falls under this category and it only rewards you coins. If activities for flightless dragons can't be introduced, stable missions that reward gems or even mystery egg chests could be integrated so the Speed Stinger could be more useful.

Recommended?: If you're not looking for a useful Titan and/or love your Speed Stingers, this is the Titan for you. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend investing in it.

 

Rating

Utility: 4 Happy Papas out of 10

Being flightless means there isn't a lot the Titan Speed Stinger can do. Racing is off the table and there's even stable missions it can't partake in. There's no stable mission this dragon can be placed in that another Titan can't do better except for Tunnel Run; that quest is specifically for Speed Stingers but it only rewards coins, something that you don't need as much once you've knocked out the farming and fishing quests. With a shot limit of 1 and the inability to fly to and fro the recharge statio, this dragon can't be used for battle unless you don't mind a bronze or low silver ranking (unless there's no one or other Speed Stingers around; then you're in the clear, though it'll take forever to destroy the ship). So if it's so useless, what's stopping it from getting a 1 or even a 0? Dragon Tactics. It has a close-ranged attack that can stun your target and a powerful mid-ranged attack that leaves your opponent injured (and from what I've gathered, Injured deals the most amount of damage to the enemy when inflicted by this dragon). It can also increase its range and boost its dodge for a couple of turns. Dragon Tactics is certainly the Titan Speed Stinger's saving grace in this department.

 

Color Options: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Speed Stinger has great color options but, like quite a few Titans released in 2018, it has White Belly/Scale Syndrome. It wouldn't be as disappointing if the Speed Stinger already had this going on but you can color its belly however you want. Additionally, the stripes are dark so if you try to make them white, it'll look gray but it's at least easier to pass dark blue as black (since after almost a year of its unnecessary removal, we still can't make anything black).

 

Animations: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Speed Stinger uses Skrill animations with original running and jumping animations. The running animations are great and it looks awesome when its jumping, especially if you happen to jump off of a high area; I just like how its little footies move like its preparing for impact. While the Skrill animations don't look bad on the Titan Speed Stinger, I certainly think it could do without'em; I would love for the Titan Speed Stinger to make use of its stubby arms and stinger instead of its mouth. Maybe it could sting the air or ready its stinger like its about to paralyze someone. Or it could wiggle its little arms around while waving its tail. A missed opportunity indeed but again, the animations look great so it gets a high score.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Speed Stinger came in the start of an era: Titans having really awesome fireballs. So it's no surprise the Titan Speed Stinger got the grand fireball treatment. While it's hard to see if you're just firing straight ahead, there's an orange fireball in the middle of all that blue acid. And when it reaches its target, there's a huge explosion! Not Titan Buffalord huge but definitely close.

 

Design: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Speed Stinger looks awesome, though it'd be even better if it had webbed feet to run across the water with. That being said, the main thing I don't like about this Titan is the front of its face; it's not cute like the regular Speed Stinger and it just downright doesn't look good. Otherwise, it looks fantastic.

 

Final Score: 8.2 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Speed Stinger is primarily good for Dragon Tactics thanks to its inability to flight and the lack of flightless-dragon-friendly activities. Minus its poor looking front profile, the Titan Speed Stinger at least looks really good and it has a stellar fireball to accompany it.

 

And that's it for the Titan Speed Stinger! I actually meant to do this a lot sooner but I accidentally deleted the picture I had for the review so I had to get a new one. Feel free to leave your thoughts and suggestions!

Week #14: Titan Crimson Goregutter

In addition to being able to make dragons black again after 8-10 months and make dragons white (cloud white, not just a very light blue), we got a new Titan!

 

Titan Crimson Goregutter

Overall Opinion: The Titan Crimson Goregutter is another SoD original and it looks great! Another Titan that came in a lot sooner than expected too. Fun fact, the Crimson Goregutter's firepower actually changed drastically with the Armor update, which now that I think about it, could've been a hint for this Titan; originally, it dealt 15 damage and fired as quickly as a Gronckle. Now it's essentially another Quaken, dealing 37 damage but firing very slowly, and the Titan deals 39 damage. An interesting Titan indeed.

  • Medicore color options - You can't color its massive antlers or belly but you can color the little rock things sticking out from its arms. This section is a lot more visible than the regular Crimson Goregutter, which is good.

Changes I'd Make

  • Let the belly be colored - While the antlers are massive and I'd love to be able to color those too, I'd be more than happy just being able to change the color of the belly (or pretty much everything that's whitish-blue on the dragon). It's a much larger protion of the dragon you'd be able to color anyways.

Recommended?: While this Titan looks phenomenal, it's in the same boat as the Titan Deathgripper: If you're in need of a swift racer or a stable mission dragon, this isn't the Titan to invest in. But if you want a new Titan to use in Dragon Tactics or just want to proudly take to the skies with a massive dragon, this'll do just fine.

Utility: 5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Crimson Goregutter is good at turning but its poor speed and lack of saddles means you won't be getting first place often unless you've some Speed Boosts on hand and/or surrounded by equally as slow dragons. It isn't a good dragon to use in stable missions because, as is the case with most recent-ish dragons, there are dragons that can not only take its role for a higher success rate but in some cases, are even easier to obtain. Prior to the Armor Update, it could have been a good dragon to use from the recharge station during battle events (on mobile) as it would've had the RoF and recharge rate of a Gronckle, if not slightly slower. Not to mention it's relatively easy to aim. But the Armor Update drastically reduced its RoF and recharge rate in exchance for more than double the damage input so it's no longer a viable option. Finally in Dragon Tactics, its primary close ranged attack has a chance to make your target vulnerable, giving teammates a chance to land guaranteed hits for a turn. Its secondary attack is mid-ranged but has no secondary effects. It can also restore its health and regain a little bit of health for a few turns afterward.

 

Color Options: 7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Crimson Goregutter's color options would be great, if it weren't for the fact that there's so many large portions of the dragon you can't color. You can't change the color of its belly/underside, antlers, or the rocky mane. . .thing on its back. Okay, three isn't a lot but those sections are pretty big on the dragon. However, it is an improvement from the standard Goregutter; the little rocky bit on the Titan Goregutter's arm are a lot more prominent and the color pops out a lot more whereas on the regular Goregutter, it's very hard to see.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

Never have I seen such a large, magnificent dragon with such hilariously cute animations. The Titan Crimson Goregutter runs around with its tongue sticking out like it's an oversized dog and it even has it out during the Titan upgrade! The way it runs looks like it's trying to be elegant. . .trying. But it's fun to look at and makes riding this dragon even more fun. Plus, a small and easy to miss detail, its arms kinda tuck in more when it's gliding/soaring through the sky and come forward a little when it flaps its wings again. Small detail but it's very nice nevertheless.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Crimson Goregutter's fireball is breathtaking. Its fireball is literally what the Dramillion's (or Titan Dramillion, though I like its fireball a lot) fireball should look like! Quite a few Titan Goregutter riders have said it and I can't help but agree with them: It looks like a burst or magic or a magical spell of sorts. The fact that it dissipates into a purple mist or smoke when it hits something only adds to the magic feel of this fireball. This currently takes the cake as my favorite fireball in the game so far!

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Crimson Goregutter looks stunning. It's not over-the-top like the Titan Deathsong to the point where it looks awful but it's not too subtle to the point where it's just an overpriced age-up like the Titan Dramillion either. It's juuuuust right. I especially love the antlers; if you look closely, there's like a lava pattern on them, which is cool when you remember that this dragon spits fire/molten lava onto its antlers to add extra damage to its already devastating charge.

 

Final Score: 8.4 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Crimson Goregutter, while not the most useful in the bunch, is still an awesome looking Titan and a worthy addition to any flock of dragons. It's a force to be reckoned with in Dragon Tactics and its magic-like fireball will leave you mesermized. While its color options are lackluster, its quirky animations make up for it and can cheer you up in a heartbeat when you're feeling down or angry.

 

And that does it for the Titan Crimson Goregutter! Another Titan that while it was anticipated, definitely wasn't expected so soon (okay, the Goregutter came out in February but you also gotta remember the Triple Stryke took a year to get a not-so-good Titan and the Scauldron took 2-3, maybe even 4 years to get a Titan stage? So it's pretty quick to me). Feel free to leave your opinons and suggestions!

Week #14: Boneknapper

In honor of my sister's birthday, I've decided to cover her favorite dragon this week!

 

Boneknapper

Overall Opinion: Ah, the Boneknapper; a dragon that's actually not canon according to Richard Hamilton but the fans are allowed to think as they please. Therefore, the Boneknapper is canon in my book. Now I only wish we could see what's under all that armor (outside of a few images). . .the Boneknapper was greatly downsized for the game, again because having it at its regular size would make the game unplayable, but aside from that it looks like the Boneknapper we saw in the HTTYD short.

 

Likes

  • Animations

Dislikes

  • Low utility - I wish this dragon was more useful, primarily in stable missions.
  • Fireball

Changes I'd Make: N/A

Recommended?: If you love Boneknappers and/or just want a dragon to add to your flock, regardless of whether it's viable or not, the Boneknapper's a nice pick; you don't see them around often so you'll definitely stand out from the rest.

 

Rating

Utility: 3 Happy Papas out of 10

Even with saddles, the Boneknapper struggles to keep up with the more swift and agile dragons on the race track. Its medicore shot limit and fast RoF means you'll be flying to the station more than dealing damage to the ship during battle events and it's difficult to aim from the recharge station, making it a poor choice. While there are a few stable missions for the Boneknapper, none of the award gems, Titan Runes, or egg. The other missions that do award such items can have their requirements fulfilled with the Titan Thunderdrum with a higher success rate. Finally, with a relatively small range of movement and no secondary effects on either of its moves, this dragon is bound to take more hits than dish damage out. However, it can boost its defenses and restore a little bit of health over x turns to help it shrug off damage. At the end of the day, you're better off with a Thunderdrum; it's a Sonic dragon that bests the Boneknapper in all categories for this section.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Boneknapper has good color options. While there are dragons with bigger sections you can color, the smaller sections are justified on the Boneknapper: It's bone armor. And it wouldn't make much sense to color in something that if it really wanted to, it could just shake off. You can still make this dragon as bright or dark as you want to, especially now that we finally got black back and have the addition of white.

 

Animations: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Boneknapper's animations look good; they're not too stiff and are quite lively. But the mix of Nadder animations in there don't suit this dragon at all and the fact that it runs with its wings spread out like it's constantly about to fly make it look a bit silly. Like the Titan Sentinel, it should run with its wings tucked or even closed like when it walks. Aside from that, it looks adorable looking around when it's sitting. . .that's probably the only Nadder animation I think is good for this dragon. Again, they don't look bad but they don't suit a dragon that collects the bones of other dragons for armor.

 

Fireball: 5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Boneknapper's fire isn't my cup of tea. Granted, it looks a lot better than the standard Strocmutter, Nadder, and Typhoomerang fire but the Titan Nadder, standard Nightmare, and even Dramillion have better fire. In fact, I think the Boneknapper should have the Dramillion's fire, just on a bigger scale! Still, it has that "layered" effect like the fire we saw in Legend of the Boneknapper [Dragon] so I can't complain too much.

 

Design: 9 Happy Papas out of 10

A lot of the Boneknapper's boney armor doesn't have a lot of depth to it, such as on the chest, hence why it doesn't have a perfect 10. However, it looks cuter here than it does in any form of media (that i've seen at least). Maybe it's because of its dwarfed size or the animations; either way, it's cute.

 

Final Score: 7.3 Happy Papas out of 10

The Boneknapper isn't the most useful of the bunch and some other aspects of it leave much to be desired. However, true to the legend, it's a rare sight so having one in your arsenal wouldn't hurt; it'd definitely help you stand out around the School!

 

And that's it for the Boneknapper! Feel free to leave your opinions and suggestions!

I honestly love the titan Gorecutter. It's design, fireball, animation, colour options... just love it! Only thing I dislike is it's slow firing, it could be a little bit faster (like a Nadder speed) and then I think it would be more accurate. It's definetely one of my favourite titans (I don't like when SoD makes titans look grumpy- Snow Wraith, Sand Wraith- yuck!), not my favourite (it's still the Whispering Death, I love the adult dragon itself, but the titan... It's just PHERFECT). I guess I'll do a top ? favourite titans soon.

Week #15: Titan Triple Stryke

Most Titans are worth getting for the sake of these reviews. . .this isn't one of them.

 

Titan Triple Stryke

Overall Opinion: Oh boy. . .there's not a lotta nice things to say about this one. This is my least favorite Titan released so far and I regret upgrading poor Yorokobi more than I did upgrading Honey. Not being very viable really doesn't help its case either.

 

Likes

  • Fireball - Prior to the release of Titans like the Sentinel and Goregutter, the Titan Triple Stryke's fire was my favorite fireball.
  • Animations

Dislikes

  • Design
  • Hidden World glow isn't Titan-friendly - You'd think this would've been fixed alongside the paint issues this Titan used to have but nope. This Titan's glow isn't. . .well, Titan friendly and the only reason the paint issues were even worked on was for the sake of a bundle (and even then, there's an issue with the orange racing paint; it turns red on the Titan. I really like it though). Money talks loudly, doesn't it?
  • Lackluster racing performance

Changes I'd Make

  • Change the design - This took Titan took some traits from the Rise of Berk design and added some other elements; the little spiky things on its arms are such a case and I'm fine with those, though we could definitely live without'em. But that second pair of horns? Or plates? Ears? Whatever they're called, they don't look good; Rise of Berk had these but they didn't stick out like they do here. If they absolutely had to stay on there, they could've done what Rise of Berk did and put them between the horns/ears/plates instead of. . .this. I also think the teeth should've been left alone; maybe they could've just been made sharper but that's it. The tails, while they're better than the rest of this dragon, were fine as they were before: Each tail being a different color!
  • Fix the Hidden World glow - As a nod to the promotional image for the Titan, the glow can be green instead of yellow.
  • Leave the standard Triple Stryke's color options alone - The regular Triple Stryke's color options are far better than the ones on the Titan Triple Stryke. I'm not sure why it was changed to be honest. . .that being said, the Titan's color options should've been the same as the regular Triple Stryke.
  • Improve its speed - Okay, I'm not saying it should be Fury or even Deathgripper fast but I'd definitely love for it to be faster than it is now. It has a solid turn rate and saddles, all it needs is a speed boost!

Recommended?: No. It doesn't look good, it's not very useful, and the only thing it really has going for it is its fireball. I can't even confidently recommend this to Triple Stryke lovers.

 

Rating

Utility: 2.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Triple Stryke isn't the fastest dragon around and its saddles don't help it much. It can be used in stable missions but there are dragons that are not only easier to get but will give you a greater chance of success. Prior to the re-introduction of FiFA, the Titan Triple Stryke was a solid canidate to use from the recharge station, with its RoF stopping it being as good or better than a Gronckle. But now it can hardly be aimed successfully and with a shot limit of 6, this dragon is no longer a good choice for battle unless there aren't many dragons with a shot limit higher than it. In Dragon Tactcis, it has a close ranged attack that has a chance to poison the enemy but the damage is unlikely to take out any enemies unless they're already low on health. It also has a mid-ranged attack that has a chance to burn the enemy. However, this mid-ranged attack is more close ranged than anything because you can only go one tile further than a close ranged attack. It can also heal itself and regenerate healh over some turns.  Not a very useful dragon.

 

Color Options: 6 Happy Papas out of 10

Fortunately, you can still make your Titan Triple Stryke as dark or bright as you'd like. But it now has White Belly Syndrome and a lot of what could be colored separately (the "armor" of the dragon, underside, and claws) is all now under one section. I think this is the most restricted a dragon has become (in terms of color options) when it becomes a Titan, and as much as I'd like to be wrong, I also don't want to be; a dragon becoming a Titan doesn't mean restrict what you can customize.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Triple Stryke has amazing animations, though they're the same as the regular Triple Stryke (the case with all Titans), hence why I don't consider it the Titan's strong point. The idle animations are adorable, the flight animations are stunning, and the running animation is nice; I don't remember seeing it run too often in the show (I'll have to watch it again at some point) so I can't say if it's accurate but it's a amusing nevertheless; it has a sway and bounce to it.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

As I mentioned before, the Titan Triple Stryke's fireball is awesome. It looks substantially cleaner. it's much brigther, and it has some blue. . .stuff on it. And as you all know, I'm a sucker for blue fire.

 

Design: 2 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Triple Stryke looks kinda bad. Like I said, the extra horns were unnecessary and make the Titan's head look ridiculous. The arm spikes? Decent but it's walking a fine line between that and "bad". The wings and the tails are alright, though I miss the tails being three separate colors. Honestly, I just can't get over the extra horns and sharp, narrowed teeth of this Titan; they're the worst parts of the design and if they weren't the way they were, I would probably love this Titan.

 

Final Score: 6.1 Happy Papas out of 10

An awesome fireball and the standard Triple Stryke's animations couldn't save this Titan. The Titan Triple Stryke's design could use some re-working and it isn't very useful in anything, not even Dragon Tactics (though it's the most useful there out of the other minigames/activities). If it was more like it's promotional image, where it seemingly had the same color options as the regular Triple Stryke, I'm sure it would've been much better. But for now, it's not the best Titan to add to your roster.

 

That's it for the Titan Triple Stryke! Feel free to leave your opinions and suggestions!

Week #15: Triple Stryke

I was originally going to do this before doing the Titan stage but it's like a good news/bad news thing and I like to hear and deliver the bad news first.

 

Triple Stryke

Overall Opinion: Unlike the Titan Triple Stryke, the regular Triple Stryke looks as great as it did in the show. . .in fact, it's actually a little cuter! Especially the baby version of it! I just want a thousand of them to hug and snuggle with for the rest of my days. . .anyways. While it looks stunning, it's no more useful than the Titan Triple Stryke unfortunately.

Changes I'd Make

  • Improve the speed - This dragon could use a speed boost to compete with other good race dragons like the Razorwhip and Dramillion.

Recommended?: Only if you like Triple Strykes; while they look awesome, they're no more useful than the Titan variant and they're more of a trophy dragon than anything.

 

Rating

Utility: 2 Happy Papas out of 10

The Triple Stryke isn't the fastest around, even with its saddles so if you want to win a race with it, you best hope there aren't Sand Wraiths, Furies, and/or Razorwhips around and have a few speed boosts on hand. This used to be a good canidate to use from the recharge station during battle events but the re-introduction of FiFA caused it to be difficult to successfully aim. Like the Titan Triple Stryke, it isn't very useful in stable missions either; dragons like the Whispering Death can provide a higher success rate in the ones that it excels in and more. The only reason it doesn't have the same score as its Titan form is because. . .well, it's a Titan, and Titans [usually] give a little extra boost. Its moves are unchanged from its Titan stage (a close-ranged attack that can inflict low poison damage, a mid-ranged attack that can inflict relatively high burn damage, and a healing move that allows it to recover health for a few turns).

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Triple Stryke has great color options and can be made as dark or light as you'd like it to be, though the "armor" scales (in the image for this review, it's blue) is darker than the other scales; for example, if you try to make it white, it'll show up as gray. You can color in the claws separately too (well, ones that make up its pinchers); a bit random but I love it!

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The animations is what really makes the Triple Stryke much cuter here than it is in say Rise of Berk. . .the only other game with Triple Strykes in it (at this time, to my current knowledge). You can't tell me the little animation of the Triple Stryke cheering (or trying to start a fight, either way) doesn't look adorable, especially when it does it while sitting and/or when it's still a baby. And speaking of sitting, the Triple Stryke looks like it's trying to meditate when it sits; maybe it's something to calm it down after a long day of fighting. The flying animations are accurate to what we see in the show (if anything, the wing flaps just need to be a little faster) and the running animations are great.

 

Fireball: 7 Happy Papas out of 10

The Triple Stryke's fireball is kinda. . .meh. It's a pretty nice fireball, especially when compared to the Typhoomerang or Stormcutter, but the graphics do look a little sloppy. And the fire button is misleading (this applies to the Titan stage too); I can't be the only one who was a little disappointed to click on the green fire button, only to see a orange-yellow fireball. I get it was made green because the dragon is venomous but you don't get the glory of using its tails so. . .I think it should've just been orange-yellow, to match the fire.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

It looks just like Sleuther. . .the only animated Triple Stryke we'll ever see (well, Rescue Riders might finally shed some light on dragons that were one-hit wonders or only saw a single individual of but that show's not even canon so. . .). Even the color options are accurate to the show; the tails are three different colors (though it might be harder to see on Sleuther since he's two different types of yellow).

 

Final Score: 7.8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Triple Stryke is more of a trophy dragon, in terms of utility and design. It looks awesome and even though it's been kinda nerfed with the return of FiFA, it can still make for a worthy member of the flock; it does have a little potential in Dragon Tactics.

 

That's it for the Triple Stryke! Feel free to leave your opinions and suggestions!

Yeah you can call me that; most people tend to. xD And I'm glad it's helping you and other riders out! ^^ Choosing a dragon is one thing but choosing which dragon to make a Titan? That's something else; at least if you buy a dragon egg, you don't have to hatch it right away. A Titan upgrade is irreversible once it's set in stone! So hopefully this thread makes it just a liiiiiitttle bit easier when such questions arise.

Week #16: Snaptrapper

Boy, last week was a bit of an interesting week; sorry for the delay. ^^; I wanted to wait until I got more Titans before doing another review but that's what the non-Titan reviews are for: I'm in the mood to review but want to hold off on the Titans for a bit. So let's cover the next multi-headed dragon the franchise!

 

Snaptrapper

Overall Opinion: The Snaptrapper's a dragon that while cool, never really passes my mind. Maybe this review will change that? They're a very rare sight around the School and fall under the "trophy" category way more than the Triple Stryke or Deathgripper.

 

Likes

  • Color options
  • Animations

Dislikes

  • Low utility

Changes I'd Make

  • Add to Dragon Tactics and/or increase its success rate in Stable Missions

Recommended?: These dragons are more beautiful than they are useful for anything. If you have the extra stable space and looking for a dragon to help you stand out more than a Titan Buffalord, this is an excellent pick.

 

Rating

Utility: 1 Happy Papa out of 10

The Snaptrapper is one of the slowest dragons in the game and with a poor turn rate, Speed Boosts can't even save it. It can be used in Stable Missions but the ones it thrives in are the same ones as the Hideous Zippleback, and they give a better success rate, not to mention they can be upgraded to their Titan stage to further increase your odds. With a shot limit of 4 and a pretty fast RoF, you won't be doing much with this dragon in battle events unless you fire from the recharge station. Even then, it's difficult to aim thanks to the re-introduction of FiFA. Finally, this dragon isn't available in Dragon Tactics (yet) so it doesn't even get the chance to shine there. In short, the only reason this dragon doesn't have a 0 in this category is because it can help with Stable Missions if for some reason you don't have multiple Zipplebacks.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Snaptrapper has excellent color options. It can be made as vibrant as a tropical flower or dark like the night sky. Plus, there isn't a section you can't color on this dragon; the sky's the limit!

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

I'm pleasantly surprised that the Snaptrapper got its own animations (if it does have Zippleback animations, I'm not sure which ones). They're much more lively than the Zippleback and every so often, all of the heads will open their mouths, waiting for something to come by. . .or silently screeching at the sky, they could do that too.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Snaptrapper has a great fireball and I wish the Changewing's fireball looked more like this. If anything, having the Changewing's fireball colored applied to this one would make it even better!

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Snaptrapper looks like what we've seen in the Book of Dragons short. . .so it gets a perfect score here. Though it is missing the little things in the Snaptrapper's mouth that release the alluring chocolate smell it's known for.

 

Final Score: 8.2 Happy Papas out of 10

The Snaptrapper is an excellent trophy dragon, having great color options, solid animations, and very low utility. It's a very rare sight around the School so if you're looking for a new dragon to add to your flock that'll help you stand out even more, this is one of the best canidates.

Week #17: Titan Scauldron

With an expansion on the horizon and armor sets being removed left and right, I've been holding back on getting more Titans and thus, not been able to do as many reviews. But after missing one week and not even doing a Titan last week, I decided to make an exception for one Titan and skip out on the Titan upgrade images for the rest. Now without further a do. . .

 

Titan Scauldron

Overall Opinion: Uhh. . .maybe not its best picture. Certainly the most interesting one I've taken for these reviews. ^^; The Titan Scauldron was one of the most highly anticipated Titans alongside the Speed Stinger, Woolly Howl, and Sand Wraith. It's a pretty awesome looking Titan but I think it's one of the most broken Titans released so far (if not overall, definitely the most broken of 2019 Titans) that doesn't have paint issues.

 

Likes

  • Design
  • Fireball
  • Patterns - Maybe this should just go under design but I like this part of the Titan so much, it deserves its own spot. The little tear drop patterns on the wings and tail fin are just beautiful!
  • Lack of paint issues - If anything, this Titan actually fixed the Scauldron's paint issue(s)! The regular Scauldron can't wear its warpaint without having the Hero Skin forced onto it but the Titan Scauldron can wear it just fine.
  • Color options - Untouched from the regular Scauldron, whose color options are just fine. Perfect.
  • Battle Event performance
  • Stubby limbs - Glad they left those untouched.

  • Appearance issues - This thing has a double neck, the textures around the end of its tail fins are a little wonky, and--as you can see in Cooldron's lovely photo--the lower jaw expands unreasonably large. Fortunately, that last issue isn't something constantly visible; you'll only see it when your Titan Scauldron is doing the animation where its showing off its jaw (or pretending to spray, I really don't know).
  • Walking animation - Once again, it doesn't look bad, just ridiculous. A sea dragon dragging its large belly across the ground. . .yeah, no.

Changes I'd Make

  • Fix the model - Remove the double neck, fix up the tail fin textures a bit, and reduce how much the lower jaw expands when doing the aforementioned animation.
  • Make the belly bigger - I'm fine with the Titan Scauldron's belly as it is but wouldn't it be nice if it was a huge as it was in the Book of Dragons short? Or just a bit more prominent? Then again, maybe it's good the belly size wasn't increased (much, if at all); I can't help but feel a little bad walking with my Titan Scauldron on land with its belly rubbing against the rough terrain constantly and making the belly bigger would make it worse!
  • Belly protection - I think the poor thing needs it even more since it's bigger.

Recommended?: If you're in need of a new battle Titan, yes! Being a Titan hasn't stopped the Scauldron from being an excellent combatant.

Utility: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scauldron performs no different than the regular Scauldron in most aspects; it's still bad at racing, its stats or abilities don't change in Dragon Tactics (the closest thing to a change you'll see is if you Titan up a Scauldron that wasn't already Rank 20 or higher), and it's still the best battle event dragon in the game (with the Titan Thunderdrum only being better if you use it on mobile). Its higher health means it can stick around longer when firing at the ship and it now deals 10 damage per shot (20 for critical shots); that little damage boost could make those events with fewer fighters go by just a little faster. Additionally, this Titan still isn't a great dragon to use in Stable Missions. So why does it have a higher score than the regular Scaudron? Well, it's a Titan; there are quests that give you a higher success rate if you use a Titan so the Titan Scauldron can try to help if no other options are available.

 

Color Options: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scauldron's color options are the same as the regular Scauldron but that's not even the best part. There's little nubbies (well, spines but because of how small and dull they are, I call them nubbies) running down back that actually change color based on the main color of your Titan! Unfortunately I can't remember all of the color combinations but I do remember two: Black results in black nubbies and white results in blue nubbies. If only more Titans had this; if they have to limit us and not let us color a part of a dragon, a part you can color can determine the color of the uncustomizable section.

 

Animations: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scauldron has the same animations as the regular Scauldron. . .in fact, it even has a few "extras", like the lower jaw expandng a little or getting thinner depending on how it's moving. So why does it have a lower score? The lower jaw; when it does that one particular animation (showing off its jaw or whatever), it expands a lot and it looks terrible. Otherwise, this Titan's good in this department and would have a slightly higher score than the regular Scauldron if I increased the range of the Happy Papa scale.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scauldron's fireball looks great! It kinda looks like a watery fire-cracker. A big improvement from the regular Scauldron, the only change I'd make to it is add steam; this is, well, scalding hot water.

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scauldron borrows its design from the one in Rise of Berk. No surprise there; Rise of Berk has some pretty awesome Titans after all. So it should also be no surprise it's gets a perfect score here! If the tail fin was fixed (it looks wonky around the tips, though it can be a little difficult to see. . .and even more difficult for me to describe) and it got rid of the double neck, it would make this Titan even better.

 

Final Score: 9.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Scauldron is worthy addition to any flock in need of some offensive allies. This Titan is an excellent choice for battle events and a great choice for Dragon Tactics, though it's not very swift. It could definitely use some fixing, with its double neck and over-expansive jaw being around since its release, but don't let that deter you (too much) from getting one. Believe it or not, it's a bit of a rare sight around the Archipelago (well, rare to me; I thought I'd see dozens of them but I don't even see them too often in battle events) so you can help diversify the scenary!

 

And that's it for the Titan Scauldron! Feel free to leave your opinons and suggestions!

Week #17: Hobgobbler

Since this dragon just came out, why not do a review of it?

 

Hobgobbler

Overall Opinion: The Hobgobbler is as cute as it is in the movie, if not a little cuter. But it's incredibly overpriced. . .hence why I'm technically covering the Smitten Hobgobbler (the only differences I'm aware of is the eye color and it has a slightly different Hidden World glow). At least you don't have to Titan it up to ride it. . .though the Hobgobbler looks like it's suffering whenever you fly on it.

 

Likes

  • Fireball - This is how the Stormcutter and Typhoomerang's fireball can look like if they can't look like the tornado like they should.
  • Animations
  • Riding - Does it look ridiculous? Yes. Does it mean I don't like it? Nope! I'm glad I don't have to spend 500 [more] gems or 50 Titan Runes to fly around the Archipelago with this dragon.

Dislikes

  • Overpriced - 880/1100 gems for this puny little dragon? As much as I love the Hobgobbler, it's not even worth 600/750 gems. Prior to be officially released in the game (around the time when the egg was there but the dragon was still being implemented into the game), it was only 400/500 gems; that's a much more suitable price for this dragon. If the Razorwhip, a much more useful expansion dragon (so the reason of "it's an expansion dragon" is invalid"), can be this price, why can't this dragon either?
  • Shading/lighting issues - As you can see in the image, the Smitten Hobgobbler has some lighting issues. . .it's extremely bright in some areas and has a huge shadow over it depending on the camera angle.
  • Limited color options

Changes I'd Make

  • Make the dragon cheaper - If not the optimal 400/500 gems, it can at least be 600/750 gems like the majority of dragons. There's no reason why it should be the most expensive dragon in the game.
  • Fix the lighting/shading issues - They did this with the Light Fury so I'm sure it'll happen in due time.
  • Increase the color options - We can only really color the top half of the dragon and its wings and in the case of the Smitten Hobgobbler, it remains pretty close to white no matter what. If it has to be very pale/dark like the Dramillion, at least let us color the belly.
  • Accomodate the camera for smaller dragons - Let me explain. As we all know, you can adjust the camera: Zoom in, zoom out, turn to the left, all that good stuff. But the zoom feature in particular is what effects the Hobgobbler--and the other tiny dragons of SoD--the most. When you zoom in too much, you can't see them! It'd be nice to see this be fixed already.
  • Increase the shot limit - The Hobgobbler has a shot limit of 28 and in the game it's only 6. Now, I'm not saying it make it 28 or anything but increase it to 10 at least; 14 or even 15 like the Dramillion is more preferable.

Recommended?: Ehh. . .they're cute but not worth 880/1100 gems. It's perfect for Hobgobbler lovers but because of its current price tag, I don't recommend it. Once the price goes down (for good, not just during the "once in a blue moon" discounts), I'd recommend this to those who don't have a Scauldron or Gronckle and/or every Hobgobbler fan.

Utility: 5 Happy Papas out of 10

Unsuprisingly, the Hobgobbler isn't the best racing dragon and you'll only really get first place if you have some speed boosts on ya. It could be a decent dragon to use in stable missions but you're better off using the Whispering Death or Stormcutter, both of which are cheaper and the former being much easier to acquire. It does make for a decent battle dragon though; like quite a few dragons, the Hobgobbler has a shot limit of 6 and deals 15 damage. It has a relatively low aim and much easier to aim than the Gronckle so you can use it from the recharge station on either platform and get gold. However, it doesn't fire as fast as the Gronckle or Scauldron so if you're trying to go for first place specifically, stick to the previously mentioned dragons. In Dragon Tactics, both of its moves are close ranged attacks that have no secondary effect, though it's secondary move does hit mulitple enemies. It can also heal itself and restore a little bit of health for a few turns.

Color Options: 2 Happy Papas out of 10

The Hobgobbler's color options are pretty limited. In fact, they're like the Dramillion's: Regular Hobgobbler colors seem to be dark no matter what and Smitten Hobgobbler colors are pale no matter what. On top of that, you can't change the color of the belly; you can change the color of the spikes, patterns, and the upper half of the body. I can live with not being able to color of the belly but at least don't restrain the colors. If anything, this proves they could've done something like this with the Light Fury instead of making Toothless' girlfriend the only one you can acquire. . .man. I can understand why they did it but will the salt of never being able to ride a customizable Light Fury ever go away? Nope. But again, that's another topic for another day. Back to the Hobblies!

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

Ah yes, onto some good news finally! The Hobgobbler's animations are great, with my favorite being the running animations; they're scurrying around like rats! Although the mouth opens really wide when it's firing while flying. . .but otherwise, I love the way these guys move.

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Hobgobbler has a nice fireball; simple but it's a lot better than what the Typhoomerang and standard Stormcutter have to offer (again, if their fireballs can't look like tornadoes, they can at least look like this).

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

I love the way the Hobgobbler looks; they didn't even adjust the size for riding (at least, it doesn't look like it). It looks super adorable. . .though I do feel a little bad riding for it. It's so tiny and here I am riding it without a care in the world. . .still, at least they stayed true to the what we've seen in the movie (size wise).

 

Final Score: 7.4 Happy Papas out of 10

The most expensive dragon in the game isn't the most useful dragon out there and it has very limited color options. However, the Hobgobbler has great animations, a solid fireball, and looks just like the ones in the Hidden World so it'll at least be an adorable addition to your team.

 

And that's it for the Hobgobbler! Or I guess the Smitten Hobgobbler, I'm trying hard not to buy a regular Hobgobbler because I sense the price'll go down in the near future (and near as in the next 1-3 months) and I know if I get one before that happens, I'll be saltier than the ocean. I recommend seeing SilverWillowWing's video on the Hobgobbler for a better standard Hobgobbler display; that was the only way I could see its color options! That being said, feel free to leave your own opinions and suggestions!

Week #17: [Titan] Dramillion

So this is a very interesting scenario. . .

 

[Titan] Dramillion

Overall Opinion: The Titan Dramillion is so similar to the regular Dramillion, this review will cover both versions of the Dramillion for the most part. The Titan Dramillion is probably the most accurate Titan we'll ever get. . .and also the most over-priced Titan.

 

Likes

  • Fireball (Titan only) - Will either Dramillion's fire ball look half as good as the one in the show? No. But the Titan's large blue fireball is one of my favorites in the game.
  • Design
  • Animations
  • Racing performance

Dislikes

  • Miniscule differences - Some may argue the best part of this Titan is that it's similar to the show and a few may even say more Titans should be like this. But this is something you either have to spend 500 gems on or take the time to get 50 Titan Runes for (and that's a long process even with a bunch of Titans to use); the great part about Titans is they change the dragon enough to where it stands out from the regular version but not changing it too the point where you can't recognize it as said dragon. This isn't a Titan you can see from a mile away by its appearance; the only way you can tell if it was a Titan without looking at the scales on its head is when it fires. That's not 500 gem/50 rune worthy at all.
  • Limited Color Options
  • Poor Battle Event performance - This dragon has the highest shot limit of all dragons and not only was it reduced by roughly 63% (62.5% exactly) but it's bad in battle. It has a shot limit of 15 (the highest of any in the game so far) but it fires very slowly. I had very high hopes for this dragon in Battle Events. . .and SoD just took a hammer and crushed them. T-T

Changes I'd Make

  • Change the fireball - The Titan's fireball is great but if they were willing to make the Titan barely change like it did in the show, they should've gone all the way and give it the same fireball. And the regular Dramillion's fireball looks great but is disappointing for this particular dragon; it can mimic the fire of various dragon species and instead, it has a pretty generic fire. The fire button being purple only worsens things; maybe it could just have a purple fireball and the Titan could have the more detailed purple and yellow one we see in Race to the Edge.
  • Make the Titan stand out more - Make the nasal horns bigger and/or more curved, change up the patterns on the dragon, anything to make this Titan worth the gems and runes. If it has to look like the one from Race to the Edge, go all the way and make it much bigger than the regular Dramillion. Right now it's only a smidge bigger than the regular Dramillion, as if we needed one less way to tell these two apart.
  • Add it to Dragon Tactics - This is a dragon that I thought would've been in the first wave of dragons added to DT, just because of its fire mimicry abilities. But here we are now, and it has yet to make an appearance in the game; I hope it shows up soon!
  • Increase the Rate of Fire - Not Scauldron or Titan Thunderdrum faster but Gronckle fast would be nice. If that's too fast, Monstrous Nightmare or Prickleboggle fast would too; it's better than it's current RoF.
  • Reduce the price of the Titan upgrade - This Titan isn't worth 500 gems/50 Titan runes with so little changes. Now, I'm not saying make it free (even though that'd be awesome) but at least cut the price in half. I'd be okay paying 250 gems or 25 Titan Runes for this Titan, though 100-150 gems/10-15 Runes would be better. 

Recommended?: Even if the Titan were to look different, the Dramillion in general is primarily a trophy dragon. But it's an adorable trophy dragon and it has some racing potential so if you want to spice things up with a different racing dragon, this is a good pick. Upgrading your Dramillion to a Titan on the other hand. . .no. There's too little changes to make it worth investing in. Stick to your regular Dramillion.

 

Rating

Utility: 4.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Dramillion (and subsequently the regular Dramillion) isn't very useful. It has yet to be added in Dragon Tactics, there are much more useful dragons for stable missions, and it's an awful battle dragon due to its slow RoF. Plus, it's difficult to aim from the recharge station so there's no hopes of using it from there either. This dragon only really shines in racing; it has no saddles but, unlike a good chunk of the dragons, it can race pretty well and doesn't rely on speed boosts to succeed. While it's no Sand Wraith, it's definetly has potential; it just needs some saddles.

 

Color Options: 3 Happy Papas out of 10

The Titan Dramillion's color options are hardly any different from the regular Dramillion; the only difference is you can color the previously red scales on its head. It can't really be made all that vibrant, though it's not to the extent of the Hobgobbler; as you can see on my beloved Mystery, the colors don't show up too dark on the dragon but considering this is supposed to be a vibrantly colored species, I'm disappointed.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The only category both stages thrive in. The Titan Dramillion has the same animations as the regular Dramillion; no surprise there. These animations, while not as lively as the Deadly Nadder, are at least unique to this dragon and add to this dragon's cuteness. My favorite animation is the flying animation, though I do wish it was a little faster.

 

Fireball: 9 (Titan) / 7 (RegularHappy Papas out of 10

The Titan Dramillion's fireball is a huge improvement from the standard Dramillion's fireball; it's bigger and it's blue. Y'all know I love blue fire. And the regular Dramillion's fire isn't that bad either but it's disappointing. The only reason neither stage gets a perfect score is because neither of them really reflect what we've seen in the show. Do they look great? Sure! But this is a dragon that is known for replicating the fire of other dragons and it's unique fire looks way cooler than what we have in the game. As mentioned earlier, the regular Dramillion can have purple fire and the Titan Dramillion can have the purple and yellow fire see in the show. Alternatively, the fire of each shot could be a different color out of a set of maybe 3-5 colors and the Titan stage would have a darker or more saturated version of those colors. Overall, good looking fireballs but wasted potential on such an interesting dragon.

 

Design: 10 (Regular) / 0 (Titan) Happy Papas out of 10

Now this was a tough one to score because the Titan doesn't necessarily look bad. . .it's just barely different. But in the end, I decided to give a perfect score to the standard Dramillion because, of course, it looks like what we've seen in the show (in fact, I think it looks even cuter here than it does in the show) and the Titan Dramillion the worst score. It doesn't look bad but the changes are so miniscule, the Titan shouldn't have been added to the game in the first place. Not even the size change is all that different; heck, I can never tell if a Dramillion is a Titan or not during battle events until I see a blue fireball fly out of its mouth. I should be able to tell its a Titan just by looking at it, not by watching what fireball comes out of its mouth. An accurate but disappointing Titan.

 

Final Score: 6.9 (Regular) / 5.3 (Titan) Happy Papas out of 10

The Dramillion is an adorable dragon that can give a Razorwhip a run for its money during races but its Titan stage leaves much to be desired. While the fireball for both stages look nice, it's a missed opportunity for the dragon that can copy the fire of other dragons. The Titan Dramillion isn't worth the normal Titan price tag (even the Titan Triple Stryke is worth 500 gems/50 Runes) and with so little changes compared to the regular Dramillion, it's not worth investing in at all; save your gems and runes and stick to the normal Dramillion. The only thing you're missing out on is a different colored fireball and slightly better battle stats, which doesn't even matter since it's lackluster in battle anyways.

 

And that's it for the [Titan] Dramillion! Feel free to leave your opinions and suggestions!

Week #18: Windwalker

With this week being the last week of summer break in my area, why not kick things off with a dragon from the books?

 

Windwalker

Overall Opinion: The Winderwalker is a dragon you almost never see around the Archipelago. . .minus the one you see in the Hidden World Annex. Other than that, you don't really see them; I've seen more Titan Dramillions than Windwalkers in my adventures. It's a bit of a shame. . .they're such great looking dragons! Trophy dragons maybe but they look awesome.

 

Likes

  • Design
  • Fireball
  • Racing performance

Dislikes: N/A

Changes I'd Make

  • Make it a smidge faster and/or give it saddles - The Windwalker deserves to have some saddles! I bet if it got a hold of the Rider's Saddle, it'd show up on the race track more often. I'd love to ride on my Windwalker and stand a chance against [saddled] Sand Wraiths and their armored riders.

Recommended?: Yes! But I wouldn't put it high on the "Must Get" list if you're in search of a viable dragon. The Windwalker has the great looks but it isn't very useful [yet].

 

Rating

Utility: 5.5 Happy Papas out of 10

The Windwalker is pretty great racer! But, like many dragons, it can't keep up with saddled Sand Wraiths and not having any saddles of its own only hinders it further. It has yet to show up in Dragon Tactics and it's not a good dragon to use in stable missions since so many other--and much better--options are available. It has a slightly above-average shot limit of 8 and deals 16 damage per shot so if there aren't a lot of high shot limit dragons like the Prickleboggle around, you could get gold. It's not a good dragon to use from the recharge station as it's very difficult to aim; you'll be lucky if you hit the ship a few times. I look forward to its eventual release in Dragon Tactics but until then, this dragon's strong suit is racing and it's not even the best in that category.

 

Color Options: 8 Happy Papas out of 10

The Windwalker's colors aren't limited. . .well, the areas you can color at least. You can't color the Windwalker's belly but you can color everything else. While it doesn't get a perfect score, you can still color a pretty large part of the dragon; it's not like the Titan Triple Stryke where you lose the ability to color the underbelly and it's not like the Titan Shockjaw where you color in a tiny area to compensate for not being able to color in such a large part of the dragon. The spots and spikes are pretty prominent on the dragon.

 

Animations: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Windwalker has unique animations and boy, did they do good with this one. The flight animation is, no surprise, my favorite animation for this dragon; I love the long, broad wingflaps it does. When it's standing aorund, it looks like it's ready to bite something. . .fitting for a dragon that's described to be incredibly protective of its offspring. 

 

Fireball: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Windwalker's waterball is something I'd like to see fly out of the Scauldron's and/or Tide Glider's mouth. Despite being a water blast like the aforementioned Tidal Class dragons, it has it's own unique blast. I hope the trend continues for future water spitting dragons!

 

Design: 10 Happy Papas out of 10

The Windwalker looks amazing! I'm particularly fond of the scale detail on this dragon, the customizable spots. The one in Rise of Berk is pretty smooth whereas the one here kinda has a rough texture to it. . .ya know. Like a croc. Well, gators have a rough texture too but I hear "crocodile-like" more than "alligator-like" when people discuss its design so we'll go with that. And it's worth noting that this dragon was released in SoD first; Rise of Berk only recently implemented the species (earlier this year) and prior to that, they only had a Windwalker individual. The more ya know!

 

Final Score: 8.7 Happy Papas out of 10

While the Windwalker falls short in battle events and stable missions and misses out in Dragon Tactics, it shows great potential for racing. It has an excellent design alongside solid color options and a water-blast that would make a Tide Glider envious.

 

That's it for the Windwalker! Feel free to leave your opinions and suggestions!
