In this guide I am going to be teaching you all you need to know about Dragonrider which is a class that everyone will have to use at one point. It is one of the most versatile classes, both aesthetically and gameplay-wise due to many things such as being colour custom, having egg skills and even primals(which are pretty similar to trinkets except that they can only be changed via Elysia, in Book 1 Celestia or via DA interface).

All players can use a fully trained DragonRider armour (without a primal for some of these) in the quest Titans of BattleOn, Full Darkness, Extreme Full Darkness and The Merge.
Free players are able to use the untrained DragonRider skill set in the following quests:
CyseRedux, We now return to your show! and Garden of Good and Ebil.
Verified Guardians are able to use their full DragonRider skill set without training in The Guardian Dragon.

This will help you navigate through the guide. To use this simply hold control+f (command+f for a mac) and then a small search bar should appear. After it appears type in one of the below numbers.

How to Obtain and Train DragonRider

First of all to be able to obtain the class from Elysia/ Lady Celestia you need a Dragon Amulet.

1.Do the Dragon Egg saga.
2.Travel to 'Sunbreeze Grove'.
3.Click 'DragonRider'.
4.Click 'Dragon Training'.
5.Do the quest 14 times.
6.Everytime you complete the quest you should gain a new skill.

How to get Primal Skills:
1.Do the Fire Orb Saga
2.Go to Sunbreeze Grove.
3.Do the Primal Dragon Skills quest.
4.Choose an element and click primal via the DA interface.(look at 002 for this).
5.Note: If you want to primalize your dragon to a certain element you have to have done the corresponding orb saga.

Quick finisher
Note:This strategy only works if you are using one of the offensive Primals.





4.If possible Strike, If not then use Rend

5.If possible Strike, If not then use Bite

6.If possible Strike, If not Primal

7.If you used Strike instead of Primal use Primal now.

This has to be pretty damaging so it follows a lot of the same steps as Quick Finisher







7.Mana Regen

8.If possible Strike, If not Primal

9.If you used Strike instead of Primal use Primal now.

Strategies Without Primal

Quick Finisher






6.Spam Breath till you win








7.Mana Regen

Specialised Strategies

Super.Mega.Ultra.Destroyer.Dracholich Strategy:
Battle No.1:

1.Bacon Primal



Battle no.2:

Same as above but whichever skill you didn't use as part 3 shall become part 3. This is due to their health being pretty low. If that doesn't kill it just spam attack.

Battle no.3:
Use Mana Regen or Coil when needed

1.Bacon Primal







8.Light Primal

Battle no.4:
Use Mana Regen or Coil when needed

1.Bacon Primal







8.Light Primal




Battle no.5:
Use Strike when possible and Mana Regen when needed.This guy is pretty weak offensively. So take him out with offensive hits.

1.Bacon Primal







8.Light Primal




Kathool Strategy:
One of the main things to do here is to stop him attacking you for as long as possible. So this strategy involves a lot of dazes,stuns etc. Use Mana Regen or Coil whenever needed.

1.Set Primal to Bacon



4.Set Primal to Wind



7.Mana Regen


Okay now you essentially repeat with some edits which you should look below for.













Repeat 10-20 until he is dead.

Titan Wargoth Strategy:
Ok the main trick to this is to try and avoid his randomness and make sure you focused. Because of the nature of this battle I can't help you step by step but I can give tips.

1. The best order to attack is: Left hand, right hand then body.

2.Don't wait to see the animations.

3.Keep the primal as ice.

4. The main skills you use should be: Primal, Daze, Bite, Roar, Scale, Strike, Mana Regen and Coil.

Dragon Drakath:
Okay this guy is kinda of fun to fight. The main concept is to support Sepulchre, Conserve health and Mana.To do this set your element to primal energy.






6.Constantly repeat till dead.If needed replace a skill with Mana Regeneration or Coil.

Titan Chickencow:
Use Mana Regen or Coil when needed.

1. Bite

2. Scale

3. Rend

4. Primal

5. Daze

6. Dragon Eye

7. Bite

8. Roar

9. Burn

10. MegaBurn

11. Primal

Pros And Cons

It has a lot of custom features such as: primals, egg skills, colour.

Some of the hardest bosses in the game have to be fought with this.


Q. I didn't chose a good egg skill, can I change it ?
A. As if now no. However in the future you might be able to.

Q. Will we get Fire,Nature and Water primals?
A. No one but the staff knows.

Q.Will DragonRider ever have a revamp?
A. It is on the S.O.O.N list.

Q. I don't like the colour of my dragon, can I change it?
A. Yes. Go to Sunbreeze Grove and click customize.

Q.Can I use my dragon in normal quests?
A. No ; the game would become so easy.

Q. Do my stat points affect my dragon?
A. Yeah but they are pretty insignificant.

Q. I have a 10,000 health, is it a glitch?
A. No. DragonRider is meant to have a lot of health to be able to fight titans.
