The Beasts of Old Valyria – ‘Covet the Strength of Dragons’ Event Preview

 |  By 

Dynasties rise and fall at the whims of those who control a dragon. Thus it is little wonder that any with wisdom know that the strength of a dragon is one to be both coveted and feared. What shall you do, with such fearsome power at your command?

The fifth Dragon event arc, ‘Covet the Strength of Dragons’, starts on September 19th and we’re introducing another set of Banner Sigils for your customization needs as well as new heroes. Let’s get to all of the information!

New Banner Sigil Customizations – Set #2!

The second set of new Banner Sigil Customizations will be available in-game starting on September 19th! You don’t have to do much to use them. Simply tap on your Banner Maker button while visiting your keep and begin customizing! Here are the new options you’ll see:

Dragon-Themed Sigils

  • Dragon Claw
  • Firebreath Charge
  • Dragon Roar
  • Velaryon

While this is the last set of new Banner Sigils for our Dragon celebration, we’re always listening to what you’d like to see in the future. Sound off in our Discord server or social media pages!

The wait is over as two new heroes will be joining the Game of Thrones: Conquest hero roster on September 19th during the next Hero Training event, ‘The Dragon’s Fall’!

Dragon Showcase

Since the release of our new Dragon Customizations, we’ve seen some awesome makeovers with the new color, pattern, and horn options! To show them off, we’re here to highlight one of your Dragons for this week’s Dragon Showcase!

Trained by Κ Θ Λ Ł Λ from Kingdom 832, please meet Staunch! As described by its dragonrider, Staunch only breathes KOALATY fire breath. We also think he looks great with the new Deep Scarlet body color. It really displays his personality!
