Level 7 Wilderness

I just conquered a level 7 Lake with the following army...

My research is at...

Weapons Calibration: 4
Metallurgy: 4
Medicine: 5
Dragonry: 4

I'll try level 8 after I get some more Battle Dragons and Longbowman.


So over the last week or so, I have been focusing on upgrading my city, training troops, and experimenting with attacking camps, wildernesses, and other cities.  I've found that there are plenty of opportunities around my city to farm inactive cities for much needed resources to train up my army.  Training an army takes a ton of time, so I have been very cautious with who I am attacking and haven't moved on passed attacking level 6 wildernesses and level 4 camps.

Currently, my army consists of...

Basically I use my entire army to attack level 4 outposts, the last time I attacked a level 5 I was wiped out.  I have a bunch of training going up for today so tonight or tomorrow I will try attacking a level 5 camp and see if my army is strong enough to start farming for my dragon armor.

I've upgraded my dragon to level 8, which means that soon I can start farming for my pieces of Dragon Armor and use my dragon when I attack new cities.  From what I've read, you need to get the armor for level 5 camps or higher.  I also want to start farming level 8 and higher lakes to try and get my Water Dragon Egg and start my outpost.

This game takes a ton of time to really start growing, but now that I'm farming inactive cities (those not in an alliance and basically having no defenses) I'm starting to see some more exponential growth.

Good luck everyone, feel free to leave comments with suggestions or questions!

Water Dragon Egg

After hitting about 40 level 5 lakes, I did some more digging and found a forum post that said to obtain a Water Dragon Egg in Dragons of Atlantis, you have to hit a level 7 or higher lake.  So, on to the next steps of hitting some camps for a while to build up some resources, then start training some more troops to be able to attack higher level wildernesses. 

Hopefully my next post will be of a picture of a Water Dragon Egg and my new outpost!


Still farming level 5 lakes, right now I have two generals farming two lakes within a 5 minute travel time of my city and have hit them about 20 times and no Water Dragon Egg.  I'm going to keep working and building, I need to get some more troops so I can send out other waves at the same time and farm some of the camps around my city.

Here's a shot of my city currently...

Getting a 2nd City!

Dragons of Atlantis just came out with the availability for you to obtain and create a 2nd outpost.  As I am going somewhat slowly in building my first city, I have yet to attempt to farm the Water Dragon Egg that is required to build an outpost.  From everything that I have read so far, you obtain a Water Dragon Egg by defeating a level 5 or higher lake.

I will post my results as I test this out and see how many runs it will take to farm a Water Dragon Egg.

Currently I have two generals (3 star and 5 star) and have researched lvl 3 weapons calibration and lvl 2 medicine.  With my number of troops, I have enough to conquer and farm level 5 wildernesses.  I found the closes level 5 lake and will be attacking it with this number of troops as much as possible until I get my water dragon egg.  Stay tuned for results...

Dragons of Atlantis Start Up Guide

I've been writing for HubPages off and on for a little while and I decided to make a hub about how I started my new Dragons of Atlantis city today as a start up guide.  You can read it here!

Starting Over

Well it's been a little while since I logged in to my DoA account.  I have quite a bit of free time over the next few days, so I thought I'd hop back in and see how things are going.  Instead of taking over my old account, I decided to hop on a new realm and start over.  I'll be following the strategy and tips that I laid out in this blog to get started and posting on my progress. 


P.S. I'm on the Tempest realm.
