The Fightin’ Fugu Firefin Flies into the Fray!
Firefin: The premiere pufferfish, pound per pound, preferred pretty pervasively. This persistent pet perpetrates perennial punishing performances in perpetuity. Perplexed? Point your pupil periscope at this publication and ponder the power of this personification of perilous perfection.
Facing fierce enemies can be fun with the right Festive Dragon! Firefin is this Summer’s latest and greatest angry ball of power, and it’s flying into War Dragons to finish off the Season as the Festive Branch. This week, the Dragons community team will be flying Firefin live on our weekly livestreams. Catch the show on Twitch this Wednesday (7/24) at 3pm PT and Facebook Live this Thursday (7/25) at 2pm PT.
A prickly little fellow with a big attitude!
As a fledgling Dragon, Firefin struggled to compete for territory against their more traditionally-proportioned brethren. Despite their rotundness and overall lack of grace, Firefin never gave up. The determined Fugu searched long and hard for an edge in battle, and, after many years, they finally discovered their niche. Firefin is currently Atlas’ most renowned Fireball Master, and none have been able to match the Dragon’s pure, destructive force. Nowadays, the blackened skeletons of any would-be trespassers serve as markers for Firefin’s territory. The Dragon does not seem keen to share the knowledge behind its pyrotechnic prowess.

Design Intent and Strategy:
Firefin is a spell-spamming Sorcerer who wants to fill the air with fireballs. The Dragon’s main ability is Underwhelming Fireball, but make no mistake, the AOE nuke packs quite the punch! Firefin’s play pattern revolves around casting as many Underwhelming Fireballs as possible, while managing the Dragon’s Rage resources and dodging mage-drain supershots. Firefin fuels its fireball frenzy with Get Angry!. While active, Firefin’s Rage generation is massively increased, and the Dragon will heal itself for each tower destroyed. Get Angry! provides Firefin with the Rage needed to maintain the fireball volley, but Firefin fliers must be careful to avoid Red and Blue Mage supershots, as Get Angry!’s increased Rage generation won’t work while Firefin’s Rage bar is frozen. Fortunately, Firefin has access to Absorb Magic. Absorb Magic can be activated to block a portion of incoming damage, convert any incoming Red or Blue Mage Tower Supershot into bonus Rage, and block the Rage freeze effect. Protecting Firefin’s Rage resources is essential to the Dragon’s success. The fireball master will struggle to succeed without its torrent of fiery death.
