Dragon Shire is a heroes battleground revolving around the Dragon Knight. A player can control the fearsome knight if they secure both shrines and visit his statue. The dragon is quite adept at destroying buildings and a powerful adversary.

This battleground has three main lanes. The dragon statue is located in the middle of the middle of the map, above mid lane, while the moon shrine is located at the top of the map, above top lane, and the sun shrine is located at the bottom of the map, below bottom lane, and next to an ogre camp.

The battleground requires players to work together to secure both shrines and the statue at the same time, as well as keeping the enemy from taking advantage of this.

Battle Ground Objectives[edit]

The main objective of Dragon Shire revolves around capturing the Dragon Statue and using it to level forts.

The Dragon Knight Statue[edit]

Located in the middle of the map, this statue does nothing until the shrines become active and are held by a team, at that time any player from that team may capture them, assuming the form of the Dragon Knight. This is a channeled ability, that can be interrupted.

The Shrines[edit]

Located at the top and bottom of the map, they are quite similar to watchtowers in how they are captured, by standing in a circle around them, that can be contested by the enemy. When both are held by the same team, that team may use the dragon knight statue.

Dragon Form[edit]

The dragon form has a lot of HP, and deals additional damage to buildings. It has four abilities

  • Dragon Breath: Spits fire in a cone, burning his enemies and scorching the ground.
  • Furious Charge: Runs into an enemy and deals damage, flinging them far away in the direction of the charge
  • Exit dragon: Ends the dragon knight effect triggering the explosion effect
  • Explosion: When the dragon knight dies he deals damage to all around him.

Secondary Battlefield Objectives[edit]
