Reign of Dragons Guide: Card Building

Card building in Reign of Dragons is actually so relevant to create powerful cards and decks that it deserves a separate article. You will use both Evolve and Enhancement to upgrade cards to the best version possible, but since there are so many possible strategies to build such cards, it can get too costly in terms of Dorries and take a pretty long time to create the perfect card.

Before you start building up your cards, know the following tips;

  • Building a card that has the best possible stats is so time consuming and takes so many hundreds of thousands of Dorries that is not worth the effort doing it.
  • The more cards you use to Evolve a card the better.
  • Enhancing Cards during the Evolution process ends up with a better card.
  • Enhancement used at the beginning of the Evolution process actually gives a weaker card
  • Enhancement used at the end of the Evolution process gives a better card

What we mean by perfect cards is when you fully enhanced each card involved in the upgrade process and use the maximum number of card in the evolve combination, which is 8 (Evolving a card is actually the cheapest part of card building.)

What X-Y Means when talking about cards.

If you happen to chat with another Reign of Dragons player and he uses the X-Y number combination when referring to some card, it’s basically telling you the building strategy used for that card;

the X has to do with the Evolve process and gives the amount of cards used for it. The Y represents the cards that were fully enhanced and took part of the Evolve process.

In a Few Words.

The best strategy is to use 6 cards during the the Evolution process. After that, you will end up with 2 Card+, and combine those with one base card each one and you will get 2 Card++, which will finally yield the Card+++. As you can see, despite using 6 base cards, you actually consume a total of 11 cards

Remember, the closer you are to the final card stage, the more convenient is to fully enhance it. That is why is suggested to only fully enhance the the two Card++, since they will carry most of the enhancing stats forward.

Regarding Bonuses and Perfect Cards.

Some players have reported to end up with cards that exceed the expected Attack and Defense points for a perfectly built card, using the 8-15 technique. This can only be explained if the game applies a bonus for creating the ultimate card. The problem is most other players who took a couple of weeks to create such cards end up with the calculated attack and defense points, but no bonus added. What we are trying to say is that the supposed bonus could be perfectly random.

  1. My DEF deck total stat is 109607 but my MAX def stat is only 101068. Why is there a huge difference? I suspect this is the reason I loose almost all the time when I am attacked. What is the best strategy for building a solid defense deck?

  2. 7DWJAXH – A special code for very rare card, it’s work. Try it!!

  3. If its a common card you’re evolving at least use 8 cards since they’re easy to find.

    If its a rare, SR, MR or UR I understand that its hard to find 8 cards but at least ENHANCE them all to MAX before evolving! Otherwize its just a waste of great cards…

  4. Want a rare card when you join ? Use my referral code then :) EPCU65X

    1. What might be happening is that your guild was warring during the period when you tried to leave and because of that you could not leave. If that was not the case there was a point before where you could not leave the guilds due to an error in the game itself.

  7. How to put Referral Code in Reign of Dragons?
    I believed that many people frustrated about this stuff.
    Referral Code post everywhere on internet but no one
    explain how to used it in the game to make it work.
    Here is the decent explanation for you:
    1. Look at the top of the screen you gonna see “MENU” in
    between “Back” and “Next” -> Tap “MENU”
    2. Looking for “STATUS” and Tap it (It’s on 5th row of
    the 2nd Column in submenu; this is from Iphone device, I’m
    not sure is it different in other device just looking for STATUS then)
    3. After tap “STATUS” .You going to see your general information.
    Below your exhibit card represent who you are, you gonna see
    the word “Referral Code” and “7Capitals/Digits with Underline” after
    the word “Referral Code” . Then tap on that “7Capitals/Digits with Underline”
    4. After you tap “7Capitals/Digits with Underline”. Now you are
    going to see how to put Referral Code in the frame that providing
    by this game ; Please put this code in that frame -> 7DWJAXH
    5. After you put 7DWJAXH, you will get a present with a rare
    and powerful card for the beginner of this game. Please used
    7DWJAXH for your referral if this explanation helping you
    in someway somehow. Have Fun!!

    1. Followed but not as you said.
      Just saw how to invite more friend.. Nowhere to enter code.
      Did Gree removed it?

  8. Great game to play if you have some downtime. Use referral code ‘8kzsck4′ for a free rare card and to help out another player!

  9. – First, app still works after iOS7, you just have to enable notifications in your device settings. They are working on fixing the issue. If you disable notifications, the app will freeze on the splash screen.

    I have played this game for a while now, and am continually engaged. Gameplay seems fairly standard CCG, but the artwork is stunning. Events are regularly run, and not always the same. If you would like to check it out, get a limited card deck by entering this code [C5NMSQ]

  10. You can only put in one federal coded so if you’ve done if then you can’t again. And a berserker which is what you get is not a super rare card and far from strong even at the start of the game
