Green and Gold Dragons are level 7 creatures of Rampart town. They are recruited from the Dragon Cliffs.

"Green and gold dragons deliver devastating damage in the form of poisonous or sulfurous breath. Green dragons are immune to spells below the fourth level and gold dragons are only affected by spells of level five." RoE manual

Both dragons are affected by Dispel though.

Placing Green or Gold Dragons (as well as any living Dragons) in the Skeleton Transformer will give you Bone Dragons instead of regular Skeletons.

Tactics and info[edit]

Indirectly damaging Green or Gold Dragons via magic is possible by either buffing the own groups with Slayer (which yields +8 attack against giants) or other buff spells or summoning a creature with any of Summon Air Elemental, Summon Water Elemental, Summon Fire Elemental, Summon Earth Elemental. While they hit a bit harder and have a higher movement speed than Black Dragons, they have 20% less health and lack the signature full magical immunity, making them populary targeted and dispatched by implosion, while having pretty much the same cost.

Due to the resurrecting part of the Sacrifice spell being actually a regular level 4 Resurrection, Gold Dragons can not be brought back with Sacrifice, despite it being a level 5 spell; but they can be sacrificed.
