Azure Dragons are neutral creatures that can be recruited from Frozen Cliffs, which can only be located on the Adventure Map. Like all the neutral creatures, they cannot be upgraded. Azure Dragon have the highest attack, defense, damage and health values of all the creatures making them arguably the strongest units in the game. Additionally, their ability to spread Fear among the enemies, causing them to freeze and lose their combat round action, can turn the tide of the battle. Placing Hydras or any living Dragons in the Skeleton Transformer will give you Bone Dragons instead of regular Skeletons.

Azure Dragons have the highest AI Value of any creature, with 78845.

Fear special ability[edit]

Azure Dragon's fear special ability is a passive ability, which means it does not require any specific action from the stack. The fear may occur only at the beginning of enemy stack's turn, causing them freeze in fear of the Azure Dragons and effectively lose their chance to act that combat round. The working principle is very similar to bad morale.
