Before the new season kicks off, you’ll want to use up any remaining resources. If you have any CP recovery items, use them to level up your pets.
Also, consider leveling up your artifacts to unlock special bundles. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself later.
Building Marches for Season 2
Now, let’s dive into the core of this guide—the hero, artifact, and pet combos.
#1 March: Mages
As for the pet, the Sapphire Faedrake is a no-brainer. It’s a magic powerhouse that complements your mages perfectly.
If you don’t have a Sapphire Faedrake, don’t sweat it. You’ve got other solid options like the Thunder Lizard and the Ice Lizard. These pets are also great for magic-based marches.
#2 March: Marksmen
As for the artifact, the Rattle-spear is a perfect match, and for the pet, go for the Snowpeak Roc.
Here’s why this combo works so well: both Nico and Canara have defense-breaking skills. When you add the Rattle-spear and Snowpeak Roc to the mix, you get a march that not only breaks defense but also penetrates it.
It’s a double whammy that your enemies won’t see coming.
#3 March: Marksmen
For your third march, let’s stick with marksmen but switch things up a bit.
This time, consider using Syndrion and Frfaegar. The Gold Crest artifact is a must-have for this combo. It’s a game-changer that boosts your marksmen to a whole new level.
If you don’t have the Gold Crest, you still have options. Shadowblades are a fantastic alternative, and they won’t cost you a dime.
Another good pick is the Heartpiercer, especially if you’re looking for a defense break.
You might be surprised, but the Sand Lizard is an excellent pet for this combo. It provides healing to up to four targets every six seconds, which is invaluable in group fights. Trust me, this pet is a hidden gem.
#4 March: Infantry
Let’s shift gears and talk about infantry.
My top pick for an infantry march is Madeline paired with Nika.
The Dragonscale Armor artifact is a must-have for this combo. It turns your infantry into a formidable meat shield that can hold its ground.
For the pet, the Frostbear is a no-brainer. Its synergy with the Dragon Scale Armor is too good to pass up. It triggers damage to the target legion when you gain a shield, making it a perfect match for your infantry march.
#5 March: Cavalry
Last but not least, let’s talk about cavalry. Now, I know Cavalry isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but hear me out. The new legendary flying cavalry hero, Forondil, paired with Theia, offers a unique combo. The Springblades artifact is a good match for this march.
You might be wondering why Thea? Well, she offers shielding, which is crucial for cavalry since they often get focused in battles. Plus, she can fly, making her a versatile choice for later in the season.
For the pet, you could start with the Berserk Faedrake. However, if you can catch a Golden Rock with a special talent, that would be ideal. It synergizes well with the Spring Blades artifact, making your cavalry march even more potent.
Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Starting Season 2
Misusing CP Recovery Items
The first mistake is all about CP, or Command Points. Many players start using their CP recovery items right at the beginning of the season.
While it might seem like a good idea, it’s not the most efficient way to level up your heroes.
The trick is to hold onto these items until higher-level Darklings or Dwarvens appear. These higher-level enemies offer more experience points, making your CP recovery items much more valuable later on.
Targeting the Wrong Enemies
The second mistake is targeting the wrong enemies. Many players spend their CP on Dark creatures, but that’s not the best strategy.
Instead, focus on Dwarven patrols or darklings. These enemies give you experience, which is crucial for leveling up your heroes. The more you level up, the more troops, talents, and skills you unlock.
So, save your CP for these enemies and maximize your gains.
Also, keep an eye on your Policies and alliance technology, as they can boost your experience gains.
MisLeveling Up Too Many or Too Few Heroes
The third mistake is about hero management.
Some players either level up too many heroes or too few. The sweet spot? Aim for five complete pairs of heroes, each representing a different troop type.
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Utilize all troop types by having a diverse set of heroes. This not only allows you to take advantage of all your troop types but also prepares you for the Dragon Trail, where you’ll need multiple combinations of troops.
This strategy allows you to take advantage of all your troop types and prepares you for the Dragon Trail, where you’ll need multiple combinations of troops.
Ignoring the Dragon Trail
The fourth mistake is not pushing far enough in the Dragon Trail.
This trail is a goldmine for gaining Prestige, which you can then use to unlock Policies. These policies, in turn, help you expand your march size, allowing you to push even further in the Dragon Trail.
It’s a cycle of growth that you don’t want to miss out on.
Misallocating Tactic Manuals
The fifth mistake is about Tactic Manuals. These valuable items should be used wisely.
The best strategy is to use them to level up your primary heroes to at least level 20. This unlocks an additional skill and allows you to bring in a secondary hero, giving you a significant boost in the Dragon Trail.
Also, don’t forget to allocate some experience to your gathering heroes. A small investment can yield big returns in the form of daily experience gains.
Not Joining an Alliance Before the Season Starts
The final mistake is not joining an alliance before the season starts. Being part of an alliance not only makes the game more enjoyable but also helps you avoid the cost of resurging to switch zones.
So, make sure to join an alliance that fits your play style before the season kicks off.
So there you have it, folks! These are my top picks for hero, artifact, and pet combos as you gear up for Season 2 in Call of Dragons. Remember, the key is to make economical choices. Focus on leveling up five marches to maximize your troop types.
