A lot of new players will make mistakes soon or later in Call of Dragons. Those mistakes can drastically impact your progression and gameplay. Call of Dragons is a time-consuming and relatively complex game, so you want to avoid mistakes as much as possible in order to progress faster and create a powerful account.
Leveling Hero without maxing first skill
Each hero in Call of Dragons has five different skills. By leveling a hero, you will unlock skills, but if you are doing that without leveling the first skill to the maximum, you are making a big mistake. Your main goal should be to level up the first hero skill to the max level. The reason is that the first skill is the most powerful for each hero. So level up the first skill to level 5, then you can start leveling your hero and unlocking other skills.
Wrong talent tree
Each hero has his own talent tree that will enhance his skills and overall performance. So it is important that you build the most optimized talent tree for that hero to get the most out of him. If you make a mistake in building a talent tree, you will need the item called “talent reset” to build a new talent tree, but that item is relatively expensive for free-to-play players and new players. If you are not sure what path and skill you should take in the talent tree, you can check the talent tree build on our site, watch YouTube videos, or ask alliance members to share their build.
“Getting zeroed” is a term that players use when other players attack them and they lose all their troops. There are a few things that you can do in order to avoid getting zeroed. The first thing that you can do is teleport into alliance territory. On alliance territory, other players can’t attack your city. If you are not in alliance territory, you can always use a city shield, but be careful. You can not use city shields or relocation items if you have the War Frenzy buff activated or reinforcements.
Using the wrong artifacts
There are a lot of different artifacts in Call of Dragons that you can use on heroes. Each one of them is different and unique, but a lot of players are making mistakes with them. For example, they are equipping infantry unit artifacts on the cavalry hero. So make sure you read what each artifact does and for what units it is intended. If you’re unsure which one to use or which artifact to equip on which hero, consult our Call of Dragons artifact tier list.
Pairing the wrong heroes
There are a lot of different heroes in Call of Dragons, and each one of them has unique skills, talent trees, troop types, etc. The issue is that some heroes simply cannot be paired together because they will lose some of their abilities and overall value. Like pairing physician heroes and magic heroes. So make sure that you research each hero and pair them correctly, or check out our Call of Dragons heroes pairings guide.
Not linking your account
This is the biggest mistake that players are making. If you do not link your account, there is a high chance that you will lose your account and all your progress. To link your account, you have to go to settings, and in the account section, you will see a link button. There you can link your account so you do not have to worry about losing all your progress. This is also useful if you want to play Call of Dragons on PC.
Not gathering on alliance territory
A lot of players do not gather on alliance territory, and that is a huge mistake. When you gather on alliance territory, other players can not attack you, and you get a 25% increase in gathering speed. So make sure that you always gather on alliance territory.
Not joining the alliance
Not joining an alliance is a huge mistake. There are a lot of benefits, like protection and technology, that you can get from an alliance. Make sure that you join the alliance immediately. Also, do your best to join big alliances that have a lot of active players because they will have max technology, have a lot of behemoths in control, help you with building and researching, donate resources, and so much more.
If you are a free-to-play player or a player who does not have time, you should not create alliances. Leading an alliance in Call of Dragon is time-consuming and hard work. Also, if you are a free-to-play player leading an alliance, you will be a target of other big alliances that have pay-to-win players, and you will also have a hard time convincing players to join your alliance. So it is best to join an existing alliance.
Not completing events and daily quests
Events and daily quests play a big part in your progression and how powerful you will be. There are a lot of events and daily quests in Call of Dragons, and all of them will give you some type of reward. Give your best effort to complete all of them, and with time you will accumulate a lot of rewards that will help you with progression.
Call of Dragons is a complex game, and you will always make some mistakes. With time, you will learn how to avoid them, and you will become better at the game. So do not stress too much about them. The only thing you should try to avoid is getting zeros. That will slow your progression drastically, and it is hard to recover from it. Also, remember to redeem all Call of Dragons codes.
