I’m pretty excited about this Dragon Dimension so far. It’s very similar to Game of War from July 2013 launch date. However, I’ve noticed a few differences to look out for.
Buildings provide different boosts than in Demigod Dimension. For instance, Barracks provide training speed and queue only while Villas provide defense stats. Hospitals provide no additional HP.
The best way to start Game of War Dragon Dimension is by achieving as many quests as possible in a chain. This provides the necessary rewards to keep going. You also obtain Hero XP to level up that hero. However, the hero skill tree is significantly different as well. Its much simpler than Demigod or the even the early days of Game of War.
Ten of each type of building Empire quest line
The trick to starting out any Game of War account, unless you plan to load it up with packs from the gate, is to build 10 of each type of building: Barracks, Hospital, Villas, Farm, Mine, Logging Camp, and Quarry. Be sure to end each series of 10 with the building you want the most of.
So, if you’re going to stack Barracks in your city then build 10 Barracks last. The reason for doing all this is for the quest rewards from building 10 of each building. This rewards resources and Hero XP. So, yes you will build then tear down some of those buildings. Don’t worry it will be worth it.

More Quests! Daily, Alliance, VIP
Second thing you want to do when starting is get those quests going. The timed quests provide additional resources and XP as well.
So far, I’ve reach level 8 Stronghold with just a $5.00 pack. I probably didn’t even need that, but I wanted to finished the “unlock Dragon Dimension Portal” quest. This quest also provides linked reward to the Demigod Dimension, which I’ll jump into now.
Linked Demigod and Dragon Dimension Questing
When porting between dimensions you have to restart GoW application each time. If you have two devices its possible, I think, to be logged into each dimension at the same time.
Also, just before you port through, look closely for your “Linked Rewards”. Depending which side of the portal you are on, you could be earning a little boost for the other side.
The Importance of Alliance Loyalty
Alliance loyalty is important for early dragon dimension. Shields CANNOT be purchased with gold in the Dragon Dimension. Instead, you must use alliance funds.
Peace Shield Costs
Purchase peace shields with alliance loyalty starting with 8 hours for 50,000 up to 3-day Peace Shield for 750,000.
Accumulate Alliance Loyalty
The best and nearly only way to gain loyalty is by completing alliance quests. I think you receive some in alliance gifts as well. Peace shield DO appear in gold packs on the second purchase tier. However, I don’t see alliance funds in the gold store yet or the packs offered in-game.
So ghost rally is your safest bet if on a tight entertainment budget.
Ghost or Fake Rally to Save Troops
If you can’t afford a shield then you must be a little creative in your approach to saving troops and resources. First, keep your storehouse leveled up.
Your storehouse provides some insurance if you are attacked.
Hero Tip: The storehouse in Dragon Dimension saves Silver in addition to the other resources.
Ghost rally is pretty simple. Once you’ve built a Hall of War you can set a rally on some abandoned level 10. Send your troops on a rally and they won’t be harmed should you get attacked.
Set the timer to 8 hours to a place that marches through the forest for maximum march time. If you do it right you can keep your troops safe for most of the day.
The remaining troops you can send to a friends shielded embassy. Whatever troops remain must be covered by hospital capacity.
Another option that I don’t recommend but could help you in a fight is to send troops to an encampment. I’ll leave this for another guide.
I hope you enjoy the Dragon Dimension! It’s been a joy reconnecting with so many players recently from our half-decade journey in Game of War.
Good luck and have fun!
