|Troops: Pack Dragon|
"This unique and loyal breed of dragon is known for its ability to carry heavy loads. While weighted down, they still retain the speed worthy of any Alantean dragon."
With a load capacity of 6,000 and a base speed of 1000, they are more than 6x faster and can carry a larger load than Armored Transports, making them above and beyond the better alternative for transporting large numbers of resources to alliance members, assuming you can manage to get your hands on enough to make it worthwhile.
Compatible Dragons: Great Dragon, Wind Dragon.
One major flaw of the Pack Dragons is they are easily killed off in attack marches that don't include Banshees, Swift Strike dragons, Shadow Stalkers, Sand Striders, or Volt Rangers, as they have a very high Speed stat(below that of a Banshee, but on the same level with the Swift Strike Dragon).
Since they have such a high speed, they end up in front of your ranged troops, and are therefore targeted by enemy troops, often resulting in some, if not all, lost.
For this reason, caution is advised when using these in battles with defending troops, with Armored Transports still the best alternative for taking resources in an all-out battle, as they stay behind your other troops with their low speed.==Training Requirements==
On an event format, it's sometimes possible to queue Pack Dragons to train during a short period.
Those training requirements are:
- Research: Levitation level 9, Rapid Deployment level 9
- Buildings: Garrison level 10, Rookery level 10
- Resources (for each one): Food 1000, Idle pop. 10, Lumber 3000, Metals 700, Stone 500
- Completion Grants needed: 3 (Garrison, Rookery, Fortress)
If you wish to be ready for the next pack dragon event, consider to plan to research and build before the event, as you need the time to upgrade three skills to level 9 (as levitation level 9 requires woodcraft level 9), and to get two completion grants from Fortuna.
