ClanBanner dragon.png



The Clan of the Dragon. The most outlandish of all clans, the Dragons follow ancient customs and embrace freakish traditions. They use sacrifice and slavery to further their goals, often earning the other clans' distrust.

Provided proper population management, the clan possess the capacity to grow very strong as the game goes on while early expansion is also facilitated. The ability to recruit Dragonkin.png Dragonkin makes the draconic warband one of the fiercest. To sustain this costly army, Thrall.png Slaves can either be used as an economic advantage or feed the dragon gauge by sacrificing them. The essence gauge grants constant and increasing bonuses as Fame.png fame rises.
