Behold the Dragonomicon! This is the complete Players Guide for Dragons of Atlantis.
My intent here is to compile all the best Guides, Tutorials, and Q&As posted here on the forums into one easy to read resource.
This is a collection of posts submitted by players who have donated their time, effort and experience in order to improve the community and help others. If you feel there are other posts which warrant being added to this guide, please contact a Forum Moderator to have your submission reviewed.
I would like to take this opportunity to Thank You All for your selfless contributions. It is my goal to keep the original posts intact and insure the proper people get credit for their works. However, it will be necessary to edit some posts to adjust for changes to the system, out of date information, grammatical errors, format issues, and typos. I will do my best to not allow these changes to ruin the original intent of the authors. Again, Thanks to all of you who have made this Guide possible.
