Sooo lately i've been trying race more for clan and i need some tips cause I suck. What do you guys do to earn trophies faster or to race quicker? 

 

Here's my situation: 

1) I have a titan woolly, a titan sand wraith, a normal skrill, and a normal snow wraith. Which ones best? (our of all of them and even titan, ps i have a saddle on all expect the snow wraith) 

2) How can i get better at racing? ie: faster, shortcuts for routes, etc 

3) Other ways to earn trophies? 

4) I also can't buy member so i don't have like Toothless, the light furies, or the night lights. 

5) Any other tips or tricks? 

 

Please help a fellow player out

Favorite Dragon: My Woolly Howl, Spirit. Still love my other dragons tho 

More about my Forum Viking Name: Kari Vali is the name of my forum Viking. She is a strong female who fights for her friends and family. She disappeared while she was quite young age. When she got older, she wanted to find him. She traveled by boat and ended up on an island where she saw a woolly howl that was distant from the others. Within days, she tamed the woolly and saw a boat of Hunters coming to the island. She defended the island, gaining the trust of all the woollys. Kari finds out from of the hunters that her dad died whilst protecting the dragons too. She left her younger brother to protect the woolly island. From then on, Kari made it her mission to travel the world to protect the dragons (or at least till it was her job to be in charge). She ends up finding Hiccup and the others at Dragon's Edge and stays with them till she gets a letter saying that their woolly island is under attack from hunters. After defending them, she finds that another group were attacking the village. Her mom unfortunately gets hurt in battle but recovers. Kari then takes over as chief whilst her mom is healing. She remains allies and friends with Hiccup and Berk. She helps them with their fight against Viggo, Grimmel, etc. Overall, Kari is a strong, brave, smart, and kind viking who is best friends with her dragon and friends with those around her.

I don't really play SoD anymore, but when I did I raced with a Sand Wraith, in my opinion there the best non toothless non event racers.

extra info

Looking at the stats, it says that skrill and snow wraith are the two best dragons that are non-member. Snow wraith has better stats technically but i have a good saddle of the skrill which improves it.

 

Would titan-ing my snow wraith make it better or should i titan my skrill  cause the saddle improves it and it could be better then the skrill? 

 

Im conflicted.

the skrill and snow wriath, while they are fast the sand wraith I felt the turn rate is better and it is much easier to fly on and control. Plus a lot of older and really good racers with over 300000 trophies who are apart of the highest clans *I forgot the names of the tops clans though lol* use it *I'm not one of them though, I only had 10000 trophies before I quit XD*. That's just my opinion though, if you disagree that's fine :3

for 3) you can also earn

for 3) you can also earn trophies by doing challenges that friends send you which gives 5 trophies, doing head to head in fireball frenzy which gives you 15 but lose 15 if you lose (almost no one does this anymore) , or do achievements for your clan

1) Sand Wraith. Definitely. I

1) Sand Wraith. Definitely. I raced better on my normal Sand Wraith than my titan Wooly, really. Max speed might be important, but so is turn rate.
2) Well, I only know two shortcuts, on two racetracks. Geyser maze and trench dive. When you see the map of the track at the up-right of your screen, as you fly, you notice two ways to go on that map. Go upwards. You will see another way.
3) Eh, fireball frenzy.
5) Dive at the beggining of the race. It helps you accelerate. And dont shoot others unless you were shot. Brake for sharp turns.

Yeah, well, thats all I know for now.

Your acceleration drops.... which is bad.

I thought shooting others made their acceleration drop, not yours. If it makes your acceleration drop, what is the point?

Swirlfire burned my subject again....(Stop it!!)

Hmm... there are many reasons why one doesn't shoot. 

 

1. Im a good sport.

2. I dont want my acceleration to drop. 

3. I can't focus on shooting- I need to focus on racing

4. If I shoot then the other player will shoot me back.

 

Yeah, those are MY reasons. Of course, you can shoot if you want to, I have nothing against that.

Hmm. Aha! A list!

1) I've never raced with any of those dragons, but in my opion, Gronckles and Groncicles are very good racers.

2) Practice in single player

3) Fireball Frenzy, Clan achivements

5) Practice, remember the stats lie, Gronckles, and more practice

Eh? I've never raced with a Gronckle or Groncicle before, so I dunno if they're good, but are you sure? Even if they are good, isn't Sand Wraith better? (This reply was not meant to criticize)

For me they are, but maybe

For me they are, but maybe Sandwraths are better. I never really figured out how to steer them. I prefer to race with the okay dragons and relay on shortcuts and power ups.

Thank you for nothing, you useless reptile.

Here are some tips XD

1) Always dive at the start, but be careful not to crash into the ground

2) Use dragons with higher turn rates (like your sand wraith), as they are more forgiving than let's say a Woolly Howl, but if you still want the howl as your main racer, go for it, the turn rate is just something to get used to

Just saying, the Sand Wraith is one of the best dragons out there, I get beaten by Great Heights racers with them, as they are easy to race with.

3) There are shortcuts in Woolly Canyon, Poison Valley, Geyser Maze, and others but it's really hard to describe them without a demonstration

4) Fireball Frenzy is an option

5) Buy your main racing dragon a saddle, and buy racing gear (like Alpha Toothless gear), to slightly speed yourself up

6) Play in single player to familiarize yourself with all the tracks

7) Buy speed boosts just in case someone boosts, or use them to overtake the lead

8) This is kind of preference but you can use traps and gas, as they are part of the game's mechanics

Thank you all for the help! So using my sand wraith is the way to go? I think the current outfit my viking has tives added speed plus the saddle. 

 

i found my snow wraith was the best cause it has like high speed and decent acceleration. and i think like 5-5 for the other stats (not firepower, the other two) 

 

but sand wraith is better then the snow wraith?
