• Counts as dragon
Made entirely from red crystal and brought to life through magical means, the crystal dragon is literally semi-transparent, lit from the center by its magical heart. Used frequently as a training tool for young dragon slayers, many wizards also create these creatures for the crystal it sheds. Placing Hydras or any living Dragons in the Skeleton Transformer will give you Bone Dragons instead of regular Skeletons.
Crystal Dragons have an AI Value of 39338.
Crystal generation special ability
Crystal Dragons have vaguely phrased special ability called crystal generation. It produces three crystals (3x ) at the beginning of each week, if the player has at least one crystal dragon in any of his armies. The effect is not cumulative, which means that several crystal dragon stacks in a hero's army or several crystal dragon stacks in different heroes' armies does not produce more than the three crystals.
It has been mistakenly stated that Crystal Dragons are non-living creatures (e.g. AOH). Also, the game manual's description (above) suggests that they are made from inorganic material. However, Crystal Dragons are considered not to be non-living creatures like gargoyles nor are they golems.
