Why Talent Skills Matter

First things first, let’s talk about why talent skills are crucial. These unique abilities set your war pets apart and dictate which heroes they synergize best with.

Unlike passive skills that you can purchase, talent skills are only acquired when you tame a pet.

So, no, you can’t just throw money at the game to get these skills—well, not yet, anyway.

War Pet Synergies

War pets offer more than just their primary skills.

They come with secondary abilities that can be enhanced to create synergies with your heroes.

For example, the Frost Armor skill can be extended in duration by investing in the Enduring Frost Armor ability. Understanding these synergies can give you an edge in battles.

Your pet’s attributes play a crucial role in maximizing its potential. Whether it’s strength, agility, or intelligence, you need to align these attributes with your gameplay strategy. For instance, if you’re focusing on dealing heavy damage, you might want to invest in strength-based attributes.

Berserk Faedrake & Forondil

If you’re looking for the ideal pet for Forondil, look no further than the Berserk Faedrake. This red dragon is a game-changer, especially when paired with Forondo.

But why is this duo so special? Let’s break it down.

The Berserk Frederick comes with a unique skill called “Arrogance,” which stacks “Fierce Marks” on your enemies. These marks significantly amplify the damage you deal. But wait, there’s more! There’s another skill called “Terrible Arrogance” that takes this to the next level. This skill is activated by a debuff called “Cowardice,” which, as of now, only Forondil can trigger.

Now, here’s where luck comes into play. The “Terrible Arrogance” skill requires a certain amount of luck points to activate additional stacks. The higher the star level of your “Terrible Arrogance” skill, the fewer luck points you’ll need. So, if you’re lucky enough to get a high-star “Terrible Arrogance,” you’re in for a treat!

The Market Impact

As more players realize the power of the Berserk Frederick and Forondo combo, expect the in-game market prices for these characters and their skills to soar. So, if you’re planning to invest, now’s the time!


War pets add an extra layer of strategy and excitement to Call of Dragons. By understanding the importance of talent skills and how to pair them with the right heroes, you can significantly enhance your gameplay.

So go out there, tame some pets, and let the battles begin!
