A dragon claw has a defense against melee of 250 and a defense against ranged of 180. A dragon fire has a defense against melee of 400 and a ranged defense of 470. This makes dragons the powerful non-player being in the game. However it can be defeated without too many losses with mantlets and good tools, and great commander, and powerful units.
The Dragon FortressEdit
This fortress is the hardest in the game. However, as long as you have made your Military hospital to least Level 5, you can heal the troops. Send in no worse that VHC troops, as HC will have severe losses, even with a 90% ranged commander. Imperial Marksmen and Spear Women are best to this mission among heal-able troops, being 15.8%/21.1% more powerful than a VHC, also consider using flank gems, courtyard gems, and also a hero that gives more ranged bonuses to increase the troop strength.
And don't forget, other players may be going to the same place when it opens every 17 hours, so consider using Rubies or Fast Travel Feathers, and have a lot of speed on the commander as well.
