How to develop your dragons to make them powerful?

Evony Sacred Dragon Norway Ridge on Dragon Cliff
In Evony, a Dragon can be selected to follow a General to enhance the Troops’ Buff, and the higher the Dragon’s level is, the more attributes and power will be brought to the Monarch. As the level of the Scared Dragon (on the Dragon Cliff) increases, the corresponding Dragon Decoration will be unlocked, which will make your castle look more magnificent.
There are three methods to increase the power of the Dragon. You can enhance your Dragons by Feeding Dragons, Refining Dragons, and awakening their talents. This article will explain how to enhance Dragons in these three ways.

Feed Dragons

Feeding Dragons can increase the EXP of Dragons and upgrade their level. After their level has been increased, the benefits brought to Generals will be improved, and the buffs brought to Troops will also be improved.
There are many items that could be the food of Dragons, such as Excellent Dragon Coin, Gold, Equipment Material, Research Stone, Source of Life, Resources, Refining Stone, Badge, Gem, Revival Stone, Medal, and so on. And it is cost-effective to consume Excellent Dragon Coin to feed Dragons during the Super Feeding event.
You can feed Dragons 30 times and refresh recipes 10 times per day.
In practice, it can be found that different Dragons need different experience points to upgrade, and the Dragons in the Pasture eat less than the Sacred Dragons in the Dragon Cliff.

Refine Dragons

You can use either Gem and Refining Stone, or Badge and Refining Stone to refine your Dragons. Use Dragon Crystal to lock refining attributes.
The attribute will turn to purple when it reaches 50% to 69% of the upper limit, turn to orange when it reaches 70% to 84%, and turn to gold when it reaches 85% or more. You can check/uncheck the color and attribute options to show/hide notifications.
Refining Stone can be obtained from the Black Market, Store – Items – Special, event bosses, Activity rewards, All-Star Shop, Battle of Chalons, and so on. Badges can be obtained from the Battle of Constantinople, the Battle of Chalons, packages, and so on. And Dragon Crystal can be obtained from the Battle of Gaugamela, Black Market, and so on.
Refining can make Dragons get more attributes. For example, the Attack, HP, Defense of the Ground Troops, Mounted Troops, Ranged Troops, and Siege Machine.

Awaken Dragons’ Talent

The Dragons and Sacred Dragons can awaken Talents when they reach a certain level, and their power will be increased greatly after awakening Talents.
The first 2 Talents of each Dragon or Sacred Dragon only apply to the troops led by the General who equipped that dragon. The third Talent of each Dragon or Sacred Dragon is an Active Talent. Select and use the corresponding Talent in the “Active Skill” interface to gain the buff. The buff takes effect in any case, lasts for a certain period, and has the cooldown. In order to understand them in detail, we will analyze the three Talents separately.
Talent Awakening means upgrading your Dragon’s Talent, and the max level of Talent is Lv40.
  • Upgrading the Talent of a Dragon in Pasture needs to consume Gem, Dragon Crystal, and Dragon Source Fragment.
  • Upgrading the Talent of a Sacred Dragon on Dragon Cliff needs to consuming Gem, Badge, and Dragon Source Fragment.

You can use Dragon Source Fragment to awaken Talents. And the Dragon Source Fragment can be obtained from Server War ranking rewards, Battle of Constantinople, All-Star Shop, and so on.
Active Skill has a time limit and cooldown time. The time limit in the table above means how long this Active Skill can affect after you use it. And the cooldown time of each Active Skill is 24 hours.
Note: The release of an Active Skill does not affect the upgrading of the corresponding Talent.


In order to get the most out of your Dragons, you need to not only feed them to level up but also improve their attributes in certain troop classes through refining. Besides, awakening and using talents also can not be ignored. If you are a whale player, please gain and develop Nidhogg, Ladon, Amaterasu Dragon, and Colchian Dragon as much as you can. But if you are a minnow or dolphin player, you can focus on the Celtic Demon, Fafnir, Norway Ridge, and The Dragon of Thebes. Let’s go to get Dragons and develop them.
