Ready to join the new adventure with huge gameplay, combats, and rewards in Call of Dragons? Welcome to the Roots of War event!

Call of Dragons Roots of War Gameplay
- After registering for Roots of War, your Alliance will be matched against an opponent determined by your ranking. Your Matchmaking Rating, number of combatants, and number of recent victories determine your ranking.
- After Alliances have been matched as opponents, one team will play as Lucia’s forces (blue) while the other will play as Yaen’s forces (gold).
- Once the battle begins, players can score personal points by defeating the enemy team’s units. Occupying buildings and gathering from Lunambrite Pools will score points for both you and your Alliance.
- Delivering Lifestone to one of your team’s buildings or a neutral building will score a large number of points for both you and your Alliance.
- Once the match is over, the team with the highest number of Alliance points wins. Players will receive rewards based on their personal point score and whether their team won or lost the match.

How to Get into the Battlefield
When Roots of War begins, players will be transported to a brand-new map.
Before entering the battlefield, please make sure that you do not have any Legions deployed and you are not in War Frenzy mode.
Having severely wounded units in your Hospital does not affect your ability to enter the battlefield. Severely wounded units are transported to the battlefield and deployed in battle.
Start of Battle in War of Roots
As players from both teams enter the battlefield, they have 3 minutes to prepare. During this time, neither team can occupy buildings or deploy Legions, but they can set Alliance Markers.
- Phase 1: Buildings are open. Lucia and Yaen’s forces begin their epic battle.
- Phase 2: Lifestone appears on the Lifestone Pedestal. The battle reaches its apex.
- End Phase: Scores are calculated. The Alliance with the highest total score wins.
By the time registration for Roots of War begins, your Alliance must fulfil the following conditions to qualify for registration:

- Severely wounded units can be healed by selecting either Elixir Healing or Resource Healing.
Field of View
- The battlefield is covered by a fog of war, obscuring your view of the enemy.
- Every Legion has a limited field of view, and can only see enemy Legions within their field of view.
- All members of an Alliance share the same field of view.
- During Roots of War, both Alliances can summon a Behemoth to the battlefield 3 times.
- Only the Beastmaster may summon Behemoths. The Behemoth will appear next to the Beastmaster’s camp. The Behemoth can be controlled by the Beastmaster the same way as in the main game.

Roots of Wars Score System
- Players and Alliances score points the first time they occupy a building, and also score points periodically for continuously occupying buildings. Certain buildings (such as the Tree of Healing or Tree of Courage) also confer buffs.

- When Lifestone appears, you have 15 minutes to deliver it to a destination. When the 15 minute period ends, the Lifestone will disappear. 1 minute later, a new Lifestone will appear at a random Lifestone Pedestal.

Roots of Wars Rewards
Below are the huge rewards you can get from Roots of Wars
Roots of War Map & Buildings
In Roots of War, two teams are locked in fierce battle, taking up roles as followers of either Queen Lucia or High Lord Yaen. Lucia’s forces are rallied under the blue banner on the top half of the battlefield, while Yaen’s forces are rallied under the golden banner on the bottom half.
In Roots of War, there are 3 Lifestone Pedestals placed across the battlefield. Periodically, Lifestone will appear at one of the Pedestals, and both teams must fight to obtain it. Deliver Lifestone to one of your team’s buildings or a neutral building to score a large amount of points.
When Lifestone is delivered, it will respawn shortly afterwards. Each time Lifestone is successfully delivered, the number of points granted by its next successful delivery increases. If you deliver Lifestone to a Lunambrite Pool, it will be dropped there and can be picked up by other players. If you deliver Lifestone to a Safe Zone, it will respawn at its original Lifestone Pedestal shortly afterwards without granting your team points.
The Halls of the Elven Kingdom stand mightily among the forests of the Queenswood, a symbol of the splendor of the holy wellspring of Ffynon. Occupying a Hall grants your Alliance a large number of points.
Tree of Courage
The Tree of Courage grew from the seeds of Pren Hynafol, the Ancient Tree. Neither time nor adversity has weakened its mighty bark. Occupy the Tree of Courage to increase the ATK and DEF of all your team members.
Tree of Healing
The Tree of Healing grew from the seeds of Pren Hynafol, the Ancient Tree. Its delicate leaves, imbued with the mercy of nature, are used to relieve pain. Occupy the Tree of Healing to increase Elixir Production Speed and Legion HP for all members of your team.
Outposts have long stood throughout Elven lands, bearing witness to flowing rivers, migrating birds, rustling leaves, and marching soldiers. As night falls and the moon’s light grows dim, their gentle light guides travelers onward. Occupying an Outpost expands your Alliance’s field of view, as well as granting a small number of points.
Elk can often be found resting by Lunambrite Pools. The pool’s gentle waters nourish nearby vegetation, causing them to grow solid stems which bear Lunambrite instead of flowers. When the moon shines down upon them, Lunambrite Pools shimmer with a gentle blue light, and their waters impart a effect when imbibed.
In Roots of War, deploying Legions to gather from Lunambrite Pools grants points to both you and your Alliance; however, your Legion must return to your camp after gathering in order for these points to be added to your score. Lunambrite Pools can be emptied by gathering from them. Pools are refilled 3 times during the course of the battle.
Roots of Wars Story
After the Night of Burning Stars, the Elven Queen awakened the power of Pren Hynafol—the Ancient Tree which stands mightily upon the banks of the holy wellspring of Ffynon. In the hopes of training warriors who could turn back the tide of darkness, she bade the tree’s roots to reach back into the past, creating a safe yet grueling battleground where the heroes of the future could prove themselves in Elfkind’s greatest struggle.
In the year 700, High Lord Yaen—corrupted by his pursuit of forbidden magic—led his army in an almighty assault against the Queenswood while the Queen lay in a centuries-long slumber. The Lifestone, the Elves’ last hope of reviving her, remained no more than a long-forgotten myth. Could new life bloom once more from the holy wellspring? Or would the flames of Yaen’s fury reduce it to a blasted wasteland?
Assuming their roles as followers of Queen Lucia or High Lord Yaen, the Lords of the realm have the chance to witness one of the greatest battles Tamaris has ever known—and, perhaps, to rewrite history.
