Dragon Rider Explained

Summer 2021 Sneak Peek #3 - New Troop - Dragon Rider

Dragon Rider is a defensive target flying troop that can be purchased and upgraded using Elixir.

It uses 25 housing spaces, which is a bit more than the regular Dragon (20 housing spaces) and a bit less than the Electro Dragon (30 housing spaces). Overall, the Dragon Rider is a mix of those Dragons.

However, differently from the other Dragons, the Dragon Rider can only target a single target at a time.

A huge benefit from the other Dragons is that the Dragon Rider targets defensive building only (like Balloons), making him more effective in battles.

A downside of targeting defensive buildings is that it won't attack defensive units, like Clan Castle troops, until it destroys all defenses, the same problem of Hog Riders and Balloons.

Special Abilities: Damage When Destroyed

When destroyed the Dragon Rider produces a final explosion when hits the ground, similar to Balloons.

Unlocking the Dragon Rider

The Dragon Rider is unlocked by upgrading a Barrack to level 15, which requires a Town Hall level 13.

This troop was added in the Summer 2021 update.

Upgrading the Dragon Rider

Unlocked on Town Hall 13, you can also upgrade to level 2 on this level. To keep upgrading Dragon Rider, you must upgrade your Town Hall level.

Upgrading the Dragon Rider improves troop overall stats: damage per second, damage when destroyed, and hitpoints.
