Crystal’s Abilities

Say hello to the only female dragon in the game (so far). Crystal is one stone-cold killer. Her overall strength in attack and defense make her one of the toughest dragons in Haypi Dragon, and also make her one of the top picks for players to use. While you might not find Crystal to be the best dragon to use in all situations, her ability to freeze her opponents places her in a good position to get an edge on opponents in PVP. But, you may find that freezing your opponents isn’t always a good thing! When you team up with other players to beat a boss, freezing an enemy may mean that your teammates can’t do any damage to the frozen enemy—unless they can use a fire ability to melt the ice! Crystal’s two main abilities in the game are Ice Rain and Ice Cube, and both can be recklessly destructive . Crystal is likely to see a third ability appear for use in game upon release of future updates (either “Earthquake?” or “Ice Storm?” — both are seen in use in Crystal’s boss level 3-30).

For now, players have two very useful abilities to choose from. Ice-Rain can be supremely effective in dispatching your enemies at close range and can also prove to be effective in getting around tight corners and hitting opponents who may be hiding in places that are otherwise safe from attack. Ice Cube, when used in combination with Rage and Power Up, can be a one-shot killer on PVP opponents. Both abilities can also land you a second turn free from attack when they successfully freeze your opponent. This has often been the only way for lower-level opponents to defeat a tough adversary in PVP, and it frustrates the hell out of your opponent :). Continue reading

Lava’s Abilities

Lava is one of the most sought after and highly-favored dragons in Haypi Dragon. His versatility is what in part makes him so appealing to use. Additionally, Lava’s higher-than-normal Hit Point level makes him that much harder to take down in PVP, though his attack is not nearly as strong as that of Crystal. If you can master the ability of Grenade, then you are often more likely to win in certain PVP and in-game levels than you would be using another dragon. Also to unique to Lava is his very low angle of attack. While other dragon’s might struggle to get their bombs past low-hanging objects, Lava can do so with relative ease as his trajectory angle is about 10-15° lower than other dragons. This can be a big advantage, especially when making use of grenades, and flaming rocks.

Both of Lava’s special abilities have a chance of resulting in extra damage created when you opponent is lit afire. With higher level abilities, this extra damage can last up to three turns and deal over 20% of your attack strength in damage to your opponent before he/she even gets to take their turn. In situations where all you need is a few more damage points to kill your enemy, this extra boost in damage can mean the difference in winning or losing a close match. Continue reading

Leshy’s Abilities

Leshy may just be the most under-rated dragon in the entire game. And it’s likely that people shy away from using him simply because he is scrawny, low on defense, and his attacks don’t pack quite the wallop that other dragons do—or so it may seem. Leshy’s two main abilities: Corpse Flower and Vine. What many people don’t know is that Vine is one of the deadliest attacks in the game. Early on, it’s unlikely that you would see much use in it when it does less than 100% damage and reduces your enemy’s defense by 10-50%. But once you raise that skill to higher levels, the effects become very destructive when you can reduce your enemy’s defense by 200%…for two full turns! This alone can decide the outcome of a match. Combine that with the Corpse Flower ability, which has a very wide range of damaging force (meaning you don’t have to be 100% accurate), you’re odds of winning may just tip dramatically in your favor.

High Scores & Criteria

I’m not going to list every high score for each level since that will undoubtedly change over time, but I will tell you what goes into a high score and how best to achieve high scores.

Haypi Dragon Stones & Magic Matrix Guide

In Haypi Dragon v1.2, there are seven different types of stones that can be collected and embedded in the magic matrix. Each stone type has five different levels (gray, green, blue, purple, orange), and there are also four different levels of synthesis stones available to increase the level of stones that you have collected (gray, green, blue, purple).

When it comes to stones, there is nothing more important than warehouse space. Consider this: you start the game with 8 slots in your warehouse and there are five different kinds of stone, each with five different levels, and four different synth stones. When synthesizing stones, you’ll also need an open slot in your warehouse for it to complete. That means, if you wanted one slot for every type of stone, synth stone, and room to produce a higher level stone that would require 30 total slots. Of course, you probably won’t be storing any L5 stones, so let’s just call it 25 to be realistic. Each time you expand your ware house you get two extra slots. The only way to expand your warehouse is by spending coins, and coins (for the most part) cost real money to get more of.

Slot upgrade costs: 2, 4, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100…

It is my opinion, and best recommendation that all players should spend 16 of their original 30 coins and expand their warehouse by six slots. It just makes it much easier to get higher level stones this way. Anyone who wants to spend more of their money to get coins should be spending it on warehouse slots, not on keys, boxes, or anything else (except possibly for VIP cards). It is just way too difficult to get L4 and L5 stones by simply waiting for them to turn up. It will be much easier for you to synth your stones to higher levels, and having ample warehouse space is the best way to accomplish this goal.

Let’s talk about stones again. They are important in the game, and if you do well in collecting them, you will also be able to synthesize your stones into higher level stones! You will need three (3) of the same type and level of stone plus one (1) synthesis stone of the same level to complete a successful synthesis to create one (1) stone of the next level higher. Since the maximum amount of each warehouse slot is 9, this actually works out pretty well when it comes to synthesizing stones, as you can make 1 stone of two levels higher from 9 stones of two levels lower. You’ll almost certainly need to do this several times in order to get stones of Level 4 or Level 5 (unless you are incredibly lucky). Take a look at this example below of what a complete synthesis arrangement looks like:

Synthesis Example - Level 4

This is an example of a proper synthesis. All stone levels are the same (Level 4 here). The result of this synthesis will be a Level 5 Mana stone!

9 L1 stones + 3 L1 Synths = 3 L2 stones + 1 L2 Synth = 1 L3 stone.

9 L2 stones + 3 L2 Synths = 3 L3 stones + 1 L3 Synth = 1 L4 stone

9 L3 stones + 3 L3 Synths = 3 L4 stones + 1 L4 Synth = 1 L4 stone

Of course, this will not alwasys need to be the case with Haypi Dragon v1.3! In the newest version of the game, players will have the option of rolling the dice and attempting to synthesize stones without a synthesis stone. I’m not certain what the odds are, but you can be certain that it will be 50% or less. If the synthesis should fail when not using a synthesis stone, your precious stones will be destroyed in the process. So, using a synthesis stone will still be the only way to ensure a successful synthesis to a stone of a higher order.

Here is a chart of all currently available stones (as of v1.2). Each level stone is also listed with the value by which it will increase your dragon’s ability. Note that Attack, Defense, Health, and Mana Stones all calculate the increase in level by starting with your base value. This means that if you already have a stone embedded, you will have to work backwards to find your base level and then calculate the new value that will be achieved from the upgraded stone. See the calculation description below the table for more info on how this can be done. CRT, Damage, and Agility all simply add a flat amount to your base value so no such calculation is required.

Synthesis

*To calculate what your new dragons skill level will be use the following calculation:

Current Level ÷ (100 + (100 x Current Stone %)) x 100 = Base Level

Base Level x (1 + New Stone %) = New Dragon Level

Example: You want to embed a L3 Health Stone, and you already have a L2 Health Stone installed. You current HP is 400. Calculate the new value that you will achieve as such:

400 ÷ (121) x 100 = 330 (Base Level) ==>   330 x 1.34 = 442 (New Level)

This calculation is the only way to accurately determine how big of a boost you will receive by embedding a higher level stone into your dragon’s magic matrix. As you can see, Mana stones offer the biggest percentage boost in your dragon’s abilities, though Health stones will result in the biggest numerical boost, simply because HP values are higher to begin with.

Which are the best stones to upgrade? Mana, Health, Attack & Defense stones are likely the most important (in that order too) in terms of how it will affect your gameplay, so it is recommended that you try and upgrade theses stones in your dragon first.

This chart will be updated upon the next update to Haypi Dragon (v1.3), as there will likely be at least one new stone unveiled for use in higher level dragons!
