Who is she? Only one way to find out.
Hey Dragon Lords!
A few weeks ago, we hosted a special Twitch stream with Dragons artist Johannes to design a slick new Dragon Rider for the upcoming Springblossom Season. During the stream, viewers could vote on various aesthetic aspects of the Dragon Rider that Johannes incorporated into the design. We also had a preliminary voting phase to determine the Rider’s gender, weapon of choice, and portrait background.
Take a look at the archived stream where we drew this Dragon Rider together:

When the stream ended, Johannes took a few days to tweak the design and make sure it was spotless. Here’s the final version of the new Dragon Rider:
This Rider Needs a Name and Backstory!
This Dragon Rider was forged by the Dragons community, so it’s only right to continue the trend for the Rider’s name and lore. That’s why we’re opening up submissions to the community to enter your name and lore for this Rider! We heard lots of creative ideas on stream, and we can’t wait to hear what you come up with. Was she guarding an honorable shrine atop the misty mountain? Perhaps attacking a group of bandits on the steps down to a local village? It’s time for you to decide!
Here’s some initial information to know about this Dragon:
Available in the Springblossom Season as the second Dragon Rider (coming later in the Season)
The Rider’s intended element for her Gear is Wind, although there won’t be Gear associated with her based on upcoming Season updates. We just used the Wind element as a basis for her look, so feel free to use it in your naming and lore submissions.
Here are the winning choices for basic information about the Rider from the votes that occurred a few months ago:
Weapon: Shuriken (hidden knife / throwing dagger / etc.)
- Background: In the Misty Mountains
Here are the winning choices for features that were voted on during the stream:
Hair Length: Long
Hair Color: Silver
Accent Color: Purple
Mask / Face Paint: Face Paint
Cape or No Cape: No Cape
- Time of Day: Evening
Submit your Name and Lore
Here’s how the contest will work:
From now until the end of Monday, March 11th, you’ll have the chance to submit considerations for the Twitch Dragon Rider’s name and lore.
The open naming portion of this contest will end of the 11th, at which time the Dragons team will deliberate on which names should go to a final community vote.
We’ll post the top 10 names and lore for this Dragon on Friday, March 15th, and you’ll have until Friday, March 22nd to vote for your favorite name and lore out of the 10.
Once the votes are in and the scores are tallied, we’ll announce the name of our community-created Dragon Rider later in the month!
For those names that end up making it into the final vote, their creators will receive a War Dragons Swag Bag from the team for their submission, which includes a War Dragons lanyard, Dragon pins, and a t-shirt! The player who ultimately submits the winning name will get an even bigger prize, so stay tuned for more details! We will send digital prizes directly to your War Dragons account shortly after the contest has ended, and physical prizes will be shipped soon after.
