Facebook Dragons of Atlantis Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get more resources like food, wood, stone and metals?
Resources replenish based on their hourly production rate. You can increase your production by doing several things:

  • Upgrade your farms, lumber mills, mines, and quarries in you fields.
  • Use production Nanos to increase your production by a day or week. Production Nanos are located in your “Items.” If you run out, you can replenish them by winning them in Fortuna’s Chance, purchasing them from the shop or by receiving a reward in a quest.
  • Conquering wildernesses increases resource production rates as long as they are occupied.
  • Research agriculture, woodcraft, masonry and alloys in your Science Center.

How do I get more gold?
Gold replenishes based on the hourly production rate. You can increase your production by doing several things:

  • Increase your tax rate (in your Fortress)
  • Build homes in your city to increase your population which will increase tax revenue and the hourly production rate of gold.
  • Build a theater in your city for happier citizens.
  • Win gold by trying your luck at Fortuna’s Chance.
  • Plundering other players can win you gold and other resources.
  • Anthropus camps usually have some gold.

Is there a way I can buy more resources?
No – but you can Play Fortuna’s Chance and try your luck at winning those resources. If you don’t win the resources you need there are several things you can do to increase your resource production:

  • Upgrade your farms, lumber mills, mines, and quarries in you fields.
  • Use production Nanos to increase your production by a day or week. Production Nanos are located in your “Items” If you run out, you can replenish them by winning them in Fortuna’s Chance, purchasing them from the shop or by receiving a reward in a quest
  • Conquering wilderness
  • Research agriculture, woodcraft, masonry and alloys in your Science Center

How do I see my friend’s cities?
Currently this is not a feature but it is coming soon!

How do I defend my city or prevent it from being attacked?
The best way to defend and prevent your city from being attacked is by having a powerful city and outnumbering any opponent. In most cases this means more of everything is better. Here are some tips to help protect your city and win your battles:

  • Make sure your troops are set to defend your city by clicking on your Wall and make sure your troops are ordered to defend the city
  • Upgrade your wall to the highest level you possibly can. Higher level walls have higher defense resistance to protect your city
  • Train as many skilled and powerful troops as possible
  • Upgrade your Dragons Keep. The higher the level of your Dragons Keep, the stronger your dragon will be to defend your city
  • Use a Cease Fire Treaty which provides 12 hours of protection. Cease Fire Treaties can purchased from the Shop or won in Fortuna’s Chance.
  • Gain as much power for your city and possible and reach higher levels.

You get a new (better) title for each level you gain. Your level is based on the highest amount of Power you have ever had, and cannot go down. Power is based on the number and level of buildings you have, and the number and type of your troops. High-level buildings and expensive units are worth more Power.

Who can attack my city?
Anyone can attack your city at anytime so be prepared. Build up your troops, upgrade your fortress, fortify your city’s wall and upgrade your Dragon’s Keep.
Note: New players receive 7 days protection from attack to give them enough time to build up their city, resources and troops.

How do I attack another city, wilderness, or Anthropus camp?
Before attacking another city of wilderness you need to:

  • Build an Officers’ Quarters
  • Appoint a General from the Officers’ Quarters
  • Build a Garrison
  • Train troops from within the Garrison or by clicking the “troops” button (waving flag) at the upper left.

To attack another city or wilderness, go to the Map and choose any location. When choosing a location to attack, take note of the “lvl” of the location. The higher the “lvl” the more troops and defenses that location has and will be more difficult to attack, but also the greater the riches you’ll win if you conquer them. If you’re just starting out, the best place to attack is a “lvl” lower than your city’s level.

What is the best way to win a battle when I attack another city, wilderness or Anthropus camp?
The best way to win an attack is by outnumbering and overpowering your opponent. In most cases this means more of everything is better. Here are some tips to help you win your battles:

  • Send Spies first to get spy reports. Spy reports will give you statistics about the city, camp or wilderness you are about to attack. Note: the more clairvoyance your city has the more detailed the reports will be. To improve your clairvoyance, go to the Science Center and research clairvoyance.
  • Attack locations that are a lower level than your city. The higher the “Lvl” the more troops and defenses that location has and will be more difficult to attack, but also the greater the riches you’ll win if you conquer them.
  • Research Rapid Deployment, Weapons Calibration, Metallurgy, Medicine, Dragonry and Levitation
  • Send your most skillful and powerful troops into battle.

How do I ignore a player’s chat messages?
To ignore all of a player’s chat messages, click on the player’s name in the chat window and select “mute”. Muting a player is temporary and will hide all the chat messages from that player until the next time you re-load the game.

How do I report abuse or inappropriate behavior?
If a player is misbehaving or breaking the chat rules, you can report them to us. To report a player for misconduct, click on the player’s name in the chat window and select “report”

Can I block someone from visiting or attacking my city?
You cannot block a specific player from visiting or attacking your city but you can protect your city from attacks by all players by using a Cease Fire Treaty which provides 12 hours of protection.

Is the happiness of my citizens important? 
Yes. Happier citizens use a higher percentage of your population capacity, creating more population and a larger tax base. To create happier citizens build and regularly upgrade a theater, and keep taxes low.

I have run out of empty slots in the fields and cannot build anymore lumber mills, mines, farms or quarries. How do I get more empty slots?
To create empty slots in your field to accommodate more lumber mills, mines, farms or quarries upgrade your Fortress. You can also use a Mass Nullifier to disintegrate an existing building to build something else in that slot.Are there any differences between the 4 tribe u select?
No, thats just storyline. After the initial selection the only result youll see from your choice is what your avatar looks like.

Also, how do u know what server u are on and how do i start on another server?
Click the Change Realm button in the top right corner of the game screen. The Realm with the dot next to it is your current server, check another to change servers.

When should i start building my army & raiding other people?
Start building asap. Start attacking when newbie protection drops.

I’ve read some troop guide so all minos?
To start off dont forget to build the cons and hals the newbie quests recommend, theyre essentially free. But for your real army Id suggest starting with Minos and LBMs. They do rather well on low level wilds and will be a good base to begin building your army. Plus they are rather easy to unlock.

If someone attacks you, what happens if you dont defend?
If you are attacked while your troops are in Sanctuary the attacker wins by just defeating your Great Dragon. They get to loot your resources and gold. But your city doesnt suffer and your troops stay safe. The Vault will help protect some of your resources, but not gold. The Dragon will heal over time.

Is there a combat simulator for DOA?
There are players who have made some really great calculators for measuring battle stats and comparing army strengths as well as troop training and marching time tables and other wonderful features. But as for a true and reliable battle simulator, I havent seen one yet. But here is a link and info for a great companion program for DoA made by Joshua Cox: DoA Helper

Does Rapid Deployment affect dragon movement speed between targets?
Rapid Deployment and Dragonry definitely effect the speed of EVERY troop type even though its doesnt say so in the descriptions. ALL troops benefit from both RD and Dragonry bonuses and can therefore reach double their Base Speed with fully upgraded techs.

What is the max amount you can reduce Battle Dragon training speed down to?
I believe the min is about 35 seconds. At 20 Gars fully upgraded you should be standing at 35-36 seconds per BD depending on if you have level 10s and your Rook level. I never modeled further than that so cant give you exact times past that.

What is the system used for the wall?
Wall Resistance appears to still be a matter of debate. I maintain it is damage mitigation that reduces the Atk Damage of attacking troops by a percentage, meaning the defenders take less damage and therefore live longer which allows them to do more damage to attackers. It has been argued that Resistance is actually a Defense stat modifier just like Glowing Shields, boosting the damage output of the defending army by a percentage without mitigating attack damage.
