DESCENT OF DRAGONS IS NOW LIVE!
It has come to this. Rafaam and his League of E.V.I.L. have set the final stage of their plan into motion: to resurrect Galakrond, the progenitor of all dragonkind. But the League of Explorers is hot on their heels...and they're bringing a few dragons of their own.
Take to the skies — Descent of Dragons is now live!
Those aligned with E.V.I.L. have the opportunity to resurrect Galakrond, who will manifest into one of five variations based on your class. Best of all, when you go to open your first Descent of Dragons card pack, you’ll recieve all five Galakrond cards for free! Learn more about Galakrond in our Draconic Details blog.
New Keyword: Invoke
A newly awakened proto-dragon is frightening enough on its own, but Galakrond's strength grows as his followers Invoke him.
Playing any card with the Invoke keyword will enhance Galakrond's power and enable even greater devastation.
You may be familiar with quests, which provide rewards for completing specific objectives during your matches. Sidequests follow that tradition, but have shorter, easier-to-complete objectives to allow you to earn victory more quickly — or even complete multiple sidequests in one game.
New Spells: Dragon Breath
The mightiest dragons come with the mightiest dragon breaths. Gain the upper hand over your enemies with these powerful spells that become more powerful if you're holding a dragon.
Login Rewards and Legendary Quests
