Its attack upgrade bonus is the second highest in the game, a bonus of 9 attack, and only surpassed by the Angel 's upgrade bonus. Since they won't be dying too easily and can also be resurrected, the Green Dragons are worth their gold until the Dragon Cliffs sees an upgrade, but should be bought only in quantities you need, as to be able to upgrade their dwelling later on.
However, even the base dwelling requires much ore and gold to build, together with the fact that it requires all other base creature dwellings to be built except Dwarf Cottage and also a level 2 Mage Guild , makes the recruiting of these dragons something obtainable only in the second or third week from the start of the game, depending on how many resources and mines you find.
The upgraded dwelling for them requires Mage Guild level 3 and also a high amount of ore and gold. Because of the Gold Dragons' level spell immunity, they are suitable to be used in tactics often called dragogeddon. In dragogeddon, a hero with preferably high power skill and Armageddon spell attacks with an army only consisting of creatures immune or very resilient to the Armageddon spell.
The tactics may be used in "hit-and-run" tactic, to advance through wandering creatures or even to slay enemy heroes. However, Armageddon spell is available only in evil alignment towns' Mage Guilds and thus not in Rampart, so make sure there is an Inferno , Necropolis , or Dungeon on the map, which you capture, getting a chance to learn Armageddon you may edit settings of the game so that your enemy plays for an evil town, or, playing for an evil town, set Rampart for your enemy and hire Gold Dragons when conquered.
Note that Conflux won't help in learning Armageddon, even though its creatures are often used for Dragogeddon. Note that Green Dragons are useless for Dragogeddon, since they are immune only to level spells! When using any of these dragons, dealing the highest possible damage by targeting enemy archers or important enemy troops is a crucial thing, which can also be done with the help of Breath attack. A good tactic is to attack a relatively weak enemy stack which stands next to an archer or other enemy troop, allowing the dragons to deal much damage while taking back as little as possible or even none, if the targeted enemy stacks is killed.
Beware of breath attack which may kill your own troops as well. When facing these dragons, one of the highest priority is to get rid of them, especially due to their offensive capabilities and high speed of the upgraded creature. Green Dragons can be killed by 4th level spells , though, and quite easily if the hero has a respectable Spell Power.
While they hit a bit harder and have a higher movement speed than Black Dragons , the Gold Dragons lack the full magical immunity, making them popularly targeted and dispatched by Implosion , a fatal thing for them. It would be great to force Green and Gold Dragons damage their own troops via breath attack, e. Due to the resurrecting part of the Sacrifice spell being actually a regular level 4 Resurrection , Gold Dragons can not be brought back with Sacrifice , despite it being a level 5 spell; but they can be sacrificed while it's almost useless since you wouldn't sacrifice a stronger troop for a weaker one.
While not getting such an immense bonus from skills, like creatures as Titans do, there are still some good skills to take in consideration. Armorer is a very good to choice to keep the dragons' numbers up, while Tactics allows more friendly troops to assist the dragons easily, even if not a necessary skill to have for a Rampart army, due to its high speed. Offense is, as usual, a nice skill to have, especially with the dragons' Breath attack.
