Welcome to Dragonfable!
I hope this guide will help you like the game as much as I do.
What is Dragonfable?
Dragonfable is a flashgame made by Artix Entertainment.
You don’t have to download, just click, make an account and play!
It has a lot of humour and a great community (the forums).
What is a Dragon amulet?
A dragon amulet (DA for short) means you are a paid member of the game.
You can buy one for a one time fee of $19,95 or 6 for a one time fee of $29,95 here
What are the benefits?
There are a lot of benefits for a Dragon Amulet holder:
You can access DA only areas.
You can use stronger weapons, Capes/wings, helmets, rings, necklaces, trinkets, belts and pets.
You can customize your dragon.
You can change the colour of your base armor and some armors you acquire later in game.
You help the game develop and making it even more awesome!
*Note* For $5 extra you get 2000 Dragon coins for each character you bought a Dragon Amulet for!
What are Dragoncoins?
So you noticed Dragoncoins? You must like shiny things!
Dragoncoins are a special currency in DragonFable.
You can buy special weapons, pets , accessories and even classes for your character.
Dragoncoins require real money to get.
For more information about the prices go here and scroll down.
Where do I start?
A lot of beginners have this problem and wander around aimlessly but have no fear! This will help to prevent that!
I will describe the first stages of the game which includes:
Your first quest.
New players will start with a choice, Book 1&2 or Book 3. I recommend starting with Book 1&2 since book 3 requires knowledge from the previous chapters.
The choice will keep appearing untill you set your hometown for the first time.
With that out of the way, lets begin!
First of enjoy the little scene.
After the scene ended, it’s time to walk around by clicking on the place you want to go to.
In the next frame you’ll see a bag of gold, Get it!
Next frame, a little scene will occur, the little red guy named “Twilly” will be kicked in your direction and you get the choice to punt him back or help him defeat the monster.
If you choose to help him he will join you as a temporary pet.
*Note* Pets are a kind of equipment that will attack a monster after you attack it.
If you choose to punt him back you’ll still have to fight the monster but without help.
After you defeated the Gorrilaphant you talk to the priestess, she goes her own way and you can finish your quest!
Congratulations you finished your first quest and you leveled up!
Your first quest for a weapon
From the place where you start. (if you have a Dragon Amulet talk to Rolith -the guy on the right- first and invite him as a guest)
Go left and talk to the guy standing next to the catapult and choose “Sir Jing’s Weapons”.
Keep clicking next and Start Quest.
Defeat all the monsters here and go up the stairs, defeat the monsters here and open the chest.
Choose the weapon that fits your base class. (Staf= Mage, Dagger = Rogue, Sword = Warrior)
Congratulations, you just got your first weapon!
To equip the weapon you can select the bag right of your HP/MP bar, select the weapon you want to equip and click “equip”.
*Note*If you have trouble beating this quest, try using potions, the health potions (the red potion on the left of your skill bar) heals 100 HP each. The mana potions (the blue potions on the right of your skill bar) heals 100 MP each.
Weapons are important in Dragonfable, they provide an Element and extra stats to your character!
Most of the time the higher level the weapon is the higher the stats and damage output are.
This is not true for Dragon Amulet weapons and Dragon Coin weapons.
For the best weapons for your level and class look here.
Now for the importance of elements and Resistances…
Most monsters have a weakness and/or resistance to certain elements.
You can see them by clicking on the “?” next to the monster’s HP/MP.
If a monster has “-100” water, that means attacks with a water element will do double damage!
But if a monster has “100 water” your attacks with a water element will do NO damage at all.
*Note* Anything above the 100 resist will heal your enemy!
The resists also count for things like “stun/sleep/daze” and “heal/health”
How higher the resist in stun is, how harder it will be to stun an enemy.
How lower the resist in Heal/health is , how more the self healing skills will heal you.
If all the everything went the way I described in the guide you should be level 5 or higher.
Every level you rise you earn 5 stat points.
Rolith can train stat points for you and later on you can also train them in Falconreach (one screen down from starting screen ,go into the right building and talk to the man in the room.)
The more stat points you put into a certain attributes the better you’ll be.
For information on where to put your stat points, look here.
The priestess’ message
Before you can leave Oaklore you have to finish the “the priestess’ message” quest.
Go to Rolith once again and select the quest (second from the top).
*Note* Dragon Amulet holders if you don’t have Rolith in your party anymore, invite him again.
Defeat Drakath and the bandits, it’s possible at level 5 and your new energy weapon but you can do a few other quests and buy a few weapons in Oaklore if you want.
Click here to go to the Oaklore page to find out what kind of quests and weapons there are.
*Note* Its handy to defeat the bandits because they only have 6 HP and like that reduce the damage that will be dealt against you. Don’t forget to use your potions!
After you defeated them, watch the cutscene and finish the quest.
You can now leave Oaklore and go to Falconreach.
The way to Falconreach
Let’s get out of here!
First go down from the main screen in Oaklore now go right and follow the road.
Go into the forest, and continue the path now y-AMBUSH! Defeat the bandits one by one.
Keep pressing on. Try to get past the bear, Defeat the bear, hate the Blue Moglin Rat and follow the road again.
Ignore the man trying to give you a quest and pass the bridge.(Unless you have a DA, then you can try this quest)
Use your energy weapon to defeat the hydra heads and continue following the road again.
*Note* Defeat the outer hydra heads first since they have very little HP.
*Note2* you can also use a (fire) weapon you may have bought in Oaklore
After following the road pass through the gate,
Welcome in Falconreach!
The thing you want to do now is save Falconreach as your hometown.
From the gate go right once and enter the left building, talk to the blond girl there, select “select hometown” and click “yes”.
Congratulations you set your first hometown!
Getting your dragon
I’m not going to say much about this, talk to Twilly (The red rabbit like thing on the tree stump) to start looking for the Dragon Egg.
This guide will help with finding it.
What can I do in Falconreach?
In falconreach you can:
Train mana and health potions so they heal more.
Travel to other towns by clicking on the sign and choosing “Travel” Map with names.
Do lots of other quests!
Dragon Amulet holders can unlock the Archknight character by talking to ash.

You can buy them if from the main screen of Falconreach you go left twice , up once , talk to the orb and select “*gulp* shop”.
If you want you can give them more power by upgrading them.

For people coming back
Welcome back to dragonfable!
If you left in an early stage I recommend reading the beginners part.
What happened while I was gone?
Well DF updates every week so probably a lot!
You can look at this and this guide
They contain every release Dragonfable has had.
If you have trouble with releases always feel free to use the Dragonfable Q&A forums.
What is this Doomknight stuff I’ve heard about?
Doomknight is the strongest armor in Dragonfable.
You can buy a piece of equipment, every 6 months you had a Dragon Amulet.
Every piece of equipment (Sword, Helm, Cloak and Armor) costs $19,95 and comes with 10000 Dragon coins EACH!
If you wait 2 years you get a discount, instead of $79,80 you pay $65,00.
What is the levelcap?
The current levelcap is 80 this updates once a year most of the times.
If it’s raised I’ll edit it here.
I heard something about special characters?
In Dragonfable you can unlock 2 characters for special storylines.
This can only be done if you have a Dragon Amulet or in The Archknight saga’s case a Verified Guardian
One is the Ash Dragonblade saga called “Arch knight”
You can unlock it by talking to Ash and choosing the “Archknight” button.
You can now choose Ash in the character selection.
For help check the Archknight guide
The other is the Alexander saga.
Go to Swordhaven.
When you are at Swordhaven, you have to go to the burned house. To get there, follow these directions.
Go up -> up -> left -> left -> left -> up through the gate -> left -> up ->right -> right and there is the house. Just enter it and go right. There you will find a book. Open it (by walking towards it) and click on the button.
*Took the quote from Guide to Alexander’s past*
For both of them
Classes for all and free
SoulWeaver: Ravenloss, Tomix (Requires completion of the RavenLoss storyline. Requires 3 shards of the Spirit Loom ) (Recommended) Pedia Link
Powerful. But mana eating. Famed for the ‘Banishment’ skill.
Pirate: Osprey Cove, Captain Rhubarb (Requires the Forged Papers) Pedia Link
A power class. This class, along with Ninja and DeathKnight, has attacks that are only available for each base class.

DragonLord (DA only), SunBreeze Grove, Elysia. (Requires to complete a quest for each skill. They are the same quest though) (Recommended) Guide
Very defensive. Yet very slow in offense. Are you those who have patience? If yes, this class will help you destroy all the bosses
Technomancer, Popsprocket, Yix (Requires lvl 30 and a Charged Cog) (Recommended) Guide
Another offensive class. It’s famed for it’s skills: ‘Debug’ and ‘Mana Grenade’
Paladin/DeathKnight/Necromancer: Necropolis, Artix. (Requires completion of the Necropolis storyline Part One, and for the the junk items to unlock/other requirements). (Recommended) Please read the guide
Paladins for BEATING Undead, of course, Necromancers, you call out minions to fight for you, has a skill that makes the opponent heal you, a skill that has 50/50 chance for either the opponent to attack himself, or gives them a high boost for them to kill you.
DeathKnight is a mixture of both. They can call minions, but their attacks are as ferocious as Paladin’s are.
Ranger: Sandsea, Zhoom (Requires 3 Ancient Treasures) Guide
A class for ROGUES. That’s because nearly every skill uses DEX.
Base Class: Mage/Rogue/Warrior: You get them from the start of the game. To change them, you have to pay 500 DCs though
Guide: A comparison between the base classes
Dragon Coin classes

Gnomish Personal SteamTank (From the weapon shop in Popsprocket)
A near Jack-of-all trades. Has a bit of this, a bit of that
Pyromancer Cysero’s shop of savings (The shop at the furthest left)
An armor that has great durabillity because of its great healing skills, this is a very good armor for tough bosses.

PumpkinLord/Evolved Pumpkin Lord: Mogloween (Requires an amount of candy to train) Guide
Another Jack-of-all trades. Does nearly everything, but not that good
Frost Moglin Armour (Recommended) : Frostval, Act three. (Requires 3 Slay Bells) Guide

Powerhouse. But it’s not finished yet. Only 7 skills. If the other side is just as good, man, it’s gonna be AWESOME
