Dragon Codex

From Dragon Mania Legends Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Dragon Codex is a major story and gameplay element in Dragon Mania Legends. After being unlocked, the Codex can be found and accessed by tapping the Dragon Codex Icon.png button in the upper-right corner of the screen when viewing the Archipelago. The main feature of the Dragon Codex is to give up-to-date information on Dragons. There are three aspects to the Dragon Codex, namely the Book of Dragons, Collections, and Codex entries.

The Dragon Codex provides the ability to purchase additional Dragon eggs at any time for any Dragon that a player currently has on their islands, including any Limited-Time Dragon previously obtained, as long as these Dragons can be purchased in exchange for Gold or Gems. Boss Dragons and regular Dragons that can be bred normally or within a limited-time period, along with the active VIP Dragons, can always be purchased, regardless if the player has them on their islands or not. Boss Dragons can only be purchased once, unless exceptions occur, and only if they have been unlocked through defeating them in Normal Mode.

Story[edit | edit source]

The Dragon Codex was first created by Professor Hogwin to record all information about Dragons. Shortly after its creation, Dunkelviking and his followers attacked the Archipelago hoping to steal the Codex. Professor Hogwin gives the Codex to his son, Ned, to protect it and sends him into the Mystic Cave to hide. Realizing that the Codex has been hidden, the Vikings kidnap Professor Hogwin in order to force him into giving up the Codex.

Thus, the game begins leading from these events into the tutorial. After collecting enough experience to reach Level 10, the opening to the Mystic Cave can be cleared and rebuilt. It can then be searched, using a team of Dragons, to find Ned and gain access to the Codex.

Book of Dragons[edit | edit source]

Book of Dragons Filtering & Sorting.png

The Book of Dragons is a major feature that has an overall count of Dragons that can be obtained and Dragons that have been obtained along with an individual count showing for multiples of obtained Dragons. There is an image slot for every Dragon in the game (excluding Chronos and Clan Dragons). Images will show in color for all Dragons that have been obtained (including any Limited-Time Dragon). Grayed out images will appear for Dragons that are available, but not yet obtained. Though slots are shown for each Limited-Time Dragon in the Book of Dragons, no image is shown and their basic information (Level 1 Codex entries) can only be viewed while they are available in the game, such as when they are Dragon of the Week or Dragon of the Month. Basic information for all other Dragons can be viewed by selecting their image.

The player can choose to toggle between two options: the All Tab.png tab, which will show all the Dragons, whether the player has them or not (Dragons will be hidden and/or grayed when suitable), and the Collected Dragons Tab.png tab which shows the obtained Dragons following the game's Elemental order. On the latter tab, the current number of unique Dragons the player has is shown on the left while the total number of unique Dragons (excluding Clan Dragons) in the game is shown on the right.

The Dragons can be filtered through the Search Button.png option. From here, the player can filter them by: a specific Dragon using the Filter Bar.png, a specific Element (which shows any Dragon with that Element), Boss Dragons, all Dragons, Limited-Time Dragons, Arena Dragons, Card Dragons, VIP Dragons, Enchantment Dragons, Dungeon Dragons, Card Dragons obtained from The Great Dragon Race, and Reward Dragons. The filtered view can also be sorted by "rarity", which will sort them by classification/type or by "unlock". When selecting the order by "unlock", all Dragons are sorted according to their highest Element where Limited-Time Dragons are shown first, followed by the others.

In addition, the player can also compare their collection of obtained Dragons to that of any of their in-game friends through the Compare Button 3.png button. Pressing this lists all the player's friends, sorted by the amount of Dragons they own, from highest to lowest (except Toby who is always shown at the bottom). By their name, there is a Compare Button.png button, which will display both the player's Dragons (in the top row) and their friend's collection of Dragons (in the bottom row). Players can also access the feature of comparing Dragons when visiting their friend's islands by pressing the Compare Button 2.png button at the bottom right.

Collections[edit | edit source]

The collections are made up of different groups of Dragons that are collected for rewards consisting of Gems (ranging from 5 to 35). These collections are grouped into categories such as early-game Dragons, all Common/Uncommon Normally-Breedable Dragons of an Element, Dragons required to breed Legendaries, Dungeon-Exclusive Dragon, VIP-Exclusive Dragon, and so on and so forth. The collections are listed in their complete form under the Collections Tab.png tab and in the form of a list under the List Tab.png tab. Whenever a new Dragon is hatched and it has an entry in a collection, the Collections menu will appear and it will highlight its snapshot.

Codex Entries[edit | edit source]

See Codex entry images for all the currently-available Codex entries

Codex Entry Information.jpg

A Dragon's Codex entry can be viewed by pressing the Information Button.png button when visiting the Dragon in their Habitat or selecting their image in the Book of Dragons. Depending from where it is accessed, the Codex entry will show different information. Codex entries for Boss Dragons can only be accessed through the latter option.

When viewing the Dragon's Codex entry through the Book of Dragons, the player will see the name, Elements and rarity of the Dragon, its base (Level 1) stats and skills, the four (grayed out) Enchantment stars if the Dragon can be enchanted, a text showing whether the player already has the Dragon or not on their islands, and some flavorful text that explains the interaction between the Dragon and its trainer. Additionally, in the bottom-left corner of the Dragon's image, the Switch Form (Egg) Button.png button can be pressed to display the egg of that Dragon and the Switch Form (Current) Button.png button to switch back to the current form. In the case of Legendary Dragons, whenever they have any secondary Elements awoken, this Codex entry changes to reflect the new Element as well as the base stats affected by that Element. If the player has the Dragon on their islands, the Go Now! Button.png option is made available and pressing it will take the player directly to that Dragon in its Habitat.

Under the image of the Dragon, depending on its obtaining method, a button might be made available for various purposes:

  • As explained in the beginning of this article, in the case of most owned Dragons, the Dragon of the Week and Dragon of the Month, and Boss Dragons, the player might be given the option to purchase additional egg duplicates through the Buy Button.png button.
  • The Hatch Button 2.png button will always be shown for Card-Segment Dragons for which the player has sufficient Dragon Pieces to hatch, regardless if the player already has the Dragon or not, and for other Dragons that are in the player's inventory inventory.
  • The Get Pieces Button.png button is shown for regular Card Dragons the player does not have on their islands, and pressing it will take the player to the section of the Main Shop where card packs can be purchased.
  • The Find Pieces Button.png button is shown for limited Card Dragons that are obtained from events other than The Great Dragon Race, and pressing it will take the player to that event. The button is only shown if the event is currently ongoing.
  • The Clan Button (Codex Entry).png button is shown for limited Card Dragons that are obtained solely from The Great Dragon Race, and pressing it will take the player to the current active Clan Dragon.
  • In the case of Enchantment Dragons, the 80px button is always shown for Dragons that are obtained via enchanted breeding, and pressing it will take the player to the aforementioned screen (if the Breeding Den is free), while the Visit League Button.png button is shown for Dragons that are obtained from the Enchantment League and the player does not yet have, and pressing it will bring up the Enchantment menu.
  • The View Bundle Button.png button is shown if the Dragon is currently available for purchase through a promotion and the player does not possess it.
  • In the case of VIP-Exclusive Dragons, the Become A VIP Button 2.png button is shown if the player has the necessary VIP level to breed or purchase that Dragon, but their VIP membership is inactive, while the 80px button is shown if the player must become a certain VIP level, which will be indicated on the button, before being able to breed or purchase that Dragon.
  • For Dragons that are currently the prize for an ongoing event, the Visit Event Button.png button will be shown and pressing it will take the player to that event.
  • Dragons that are obtained via the Dragon League will have the Arena Button.png button shown, and pressing it will open the league menu, while Dragons that are obtained from the Clockwork Dungeon will have the Clockwork Dungeon Button.png button shown, and pressing it will take the player to the Clockwork Dungeon.
  • In the case of some Reward-Exclusive Dragons, the 70px button will be shown for Dragons that are obtained from the Totem of Friendship, and pressing it will open the menu of that building. The Recruitment Code Button.png button will be shown for Dragons obtained from recruiting players, and pressing it will take the player to screen showing their recruitment code. Lastly, the Connect Button 2.png button will be shown for Dragons obtained via connecting to Facebook, and pressing it will bring up the window for this purpose.
  • The 70px button is displayed for Dragons that are obtained from defeating certain quests in Heroic Mode, and pressing it will take the player to that mode. The button is also displayed for Boss Dragos that have not yet been defeated in Normal Mode, and pressing it will take the player to that mode.

When accessing the Dragon's Codex entry from their Habitat, the player will see most of the information above, along with the Dragon's given name, its current level, the level of its skill, its Enchantment level, its mastery (if available), and whether the Dragon is trained or not (a curved aura is displayed atop the Dragon's head if it is trained). The stats (Health, Base Attack, and Base Gold per Hour) that are seen are affected by the Dragon's level, its Enchantment level, and whether it is trained or not. The option to go directly to that Dragon's Habitat, as well as the option to buy it (regardless if the player has or does not have the Dragon on their islands in both cases), will not be shown here. If the Dragon has the skill or mastery learned, the skill's icon will be shown in color, and an arrow can be pressed to view more information about the amount of damage it inflicts and what the skill does. If the Dragon has not learned the skill for that Element, the icon will be grayed out. In this same section, the player can choose to send the Dragon to the Academy by using the Academy Button.png button, to rename it with the Rename Button.png option, to move it and relocate it in another Habitat through the Move Button.png option, or to sell it for a determined amount of Gold by choosing the Sell Button 2.png option.

Noteworthy Changes[edit | edit source]

    • All the collections have been replaced with new ones.
    • All collections are now displayed vertically instead of horizontally.

    • The Ranking Tab.png tab has been replaced by the Compare Button 3.png button.
    • The Filter Tab.png tab has been replaced by the Search Button.png button.
    • More filtering options have been added.
    • The player can now switch between the egg and adult form of a Dragon on its Codex entry.

The amount of time it can take will vary between individuals as every breeding has it's own probability and some may be luckier than others. I am on day 125 and only have to breed 11 more dragons to finish (except the Clan Trophies) the codex.
