What are the best types of dragons to use in battle events? So far I have a monstrous nightmare, a gronkle, a whispering death, and a skrill. Thanks for your help!

I use a Scauldron. They are amazing at battle events, because of their high shot limit, and, what it feels like to me, high strength.

Scauldrons, Prickeboggle,

From the dragons you have, the best to battle with is your Whispering Death and your Monstrous Nightmare :)

This all really depends on what you like. For me a high shot limit that does 9 damage? Yeah no. I much prefer dragons that due a lot of damage(snow wraith, mudraker, nadder) and just switch when they run out of their shots. Hope this is  helpful!

No reason to switch dragons

No reason to switch dragons when you run out of shots. There are two camps in the training grounds, marked with a golden light, that you can fly to and quickly recharge your shots. My rank in battle events went up when I started doing that.



Art of Phoebe done by xXSadieKaneXx


Name: Ogmundr (Icelandic name meaning awe-inspiring, brave, strong)

Gender: male

Backstory/Description: Ogmundr is brave, fierce, and clever, but also just a big lovable dragon who enjoys cuddling up with friends, both human and dragon. I met him when I was out for a flight with Phoebe, my Sand Wraith. We'd landed in a forest because Phoebe's wings were tired, but she began acting strange not too long after landing. She was hopping around and sniffing the ground, seeking out some sort of trail. She took off into the woods without me, and there didn't seem to be anything to do but follow her. She led me to a very small baby Thornridge on the forest floor. It looked like he had broken a leg, and I approached cautiously so as not to scare him. I talked softly to him, and soon he allowed me to pet him. I looked around for any sign of a nest or a mother Thornridge, but he appeared to be alone.


After some deliberation on my part and urging on Pheobe's we took him with us and nursed him back to health. His leg healed really well and he was running around and playing like any normal dragon his age. While taking care of him, I'd often return to the forest where I found him and search for any signs of a family, but never found any. He'd probably been abandoned because of his size. I decided that I was going to keep and train him, and I decided to name him Ogmundr because he lived and grew despite the odds working against him.


Ogmundr has become really good friends with Phoebe and I often find them curled up with each other after a long day. I've even woken up to find him trying to sleep on top of me! He has a tendency to steal my things to use as toys, but he makes sure to return them after, though it doesn't make much difference because they've been destroyed by his rough playing. I've faced Dragon Hunters a few times with Ogmundr, and he's one of the fiercest fighters I know. We've become really great friends, and I'm glad I was able to save him.

I switch dragons because it's

I switch dragons because it's faster (at least for me I have fast loading time) and I always get in the top 6, if I get there on time XD.

Skrills aren't exactly the most effective dragons for battle.I own one myself(see siggy below) and they only have a shot limit of 4 and deal 16 damage on a normal hit and 32 on a critical hit,so I don't recommend the Skrill.But it is good at racing though :)

Skrill's average shot damage total(1 critical+3 normal)=80


A Gronckle isn't exactly effective either since it's kinda slow and if you're gonna recharge your shots fast you need a fast dragon to zoom to the recharge area.Also not to emntion the fact that the Gronckle only has a shot limit of 6 which isn't exactly the best.But never underestimate a Gronckle's affection for you! <3

Gronckle's average shot damage total(2 critical+4 normal)=90


Whispering Deaths are relatively okay battle dragons.They are quick enough to get to the recharge areas within ten seconds or so and they have a shot limit of ten,with each shot dealing an average of 10 damage.Thus,the Whispering Death is your runner-up battle dragon.Just give him/her a try at battles once or twice :)

Whispering Death's average shot damage total(3 critical+7 normal)=130


Monstrous Nightmares are your best bet as battle dragons in your dragon pack.They're fast,which means they can get to the recharge area quick,they have a shot limit of ten,which is great,and each shot deals an average of 14 attack damage.Just give him/her a break occasionally :)

Monstrous Nightmare's average shot damage total(3 critical+7 normal)=182




Best of luck but remember to give each and every one of your dragons a chance in battle :)






Avast Thar,Fellow Vikings!

My full Viking name is Yannied Lepsy,but you can just call me Yannied :)
I own a female Deadly Nadder named Jelsa(First ever dragon) and a male Whispering Death named Dreyar(I got him from a quest),a male Gronckle named Rockgobbler(He has an extremely short attention span and often daydreams),a male Skrill named Elektrikshock(I got him from a Battle Event),a female Shockjaw named Poisonbreath(She's very shy),a female Changewing named Toxic(she's rather vain but she's really sweet) and a male Speed Stinger named Lightning(he might not reach the sky but his dreams do).
I love them all and regularly keep their energy bar and happiness bar full.I love all dragons in existence,even if they don't belong to the HTTYD franchise or books.Basically,I am a huge fan of HTTYD!
My very own Dragon Training License!


My first dragon,Jelsa the Deadly Nadder.She's the oldest and also the wisest.She also takes care of my other dragons when I'm busy adventuring.She's around twenty now,but is still fast and competitive,bless her.



This is my second dragon,Dreyar the Whispering Death.He may seem menacing with his wide-open mouth,but he's just trying to catch the snowflakes.He's always being silly like this,but I love him for it.

This is my third dragon,Rockgobbler the Gronckle.He's the most adventurous and restless of my dragon pack,but when he isn't in 'adventuring mode',he likes to just stand on sea-stacks and admire the view.
This is my fourth dragon,Elektrikshock the Skrill.He's generally quite a chilled out dragon,but he's always ready to do anything that I ask him to do.The thing that he loves to do most?Sleep.
This is my fifth dragon,Poisonbreath the Shockjaw.She actually prefers the company of the narwhals out in the seas around the School to the company of other dragons,but I don't mind,so long as she's happy,I'm happy.
This is my sixth dragon,Toxic the Changewing.She's rather vain but she's still really sweet.She loves night flights and often we go exploring during the night and see the beauty of the night-time world.
This is my seventh dragon,Lightning the Speed Stinger.He may not reach the skies,but his dreams do.With the help of his other six fellow dragons,he was carried to the highest point of Berk to achieve his dream of seeing the world from above.
I'm proud of all my dragons,because they have grown up to be the best dragons I have ever trained.But the dragon that I will always love the most is my dead Deadly Nadder Mixedup.She was the best companion I've had for years,and will always be by my side wherever I go,even though she is gone...
