The only ‘free’ way to get more Dragon Armor is to complete the Grodz base battles. You can’t get it by beating any Anthropus Camps unlike in the desktop version of Dragons of Atlantis. Your other alternative is to buy the Great Dragon chests in the store using rubies, which can be expensive, but worth it if you want to unlock the Dragon much more quickly.
Don’t attack an Anthropus Base, a player or a Grodz Base unless you know for certain that you’ll win because if you lose, then your troops will all be gone and will all have to be retrained. Figure out what you are up against using spy missions or by sending a very small army (1 troop is sufficient) to attack, and then read the battle report to see what troops that they have. Ignore the warnings about how “The enemy is legion!”.
When you’re scouting Wilds and Anthropus Camps, they’ll use different troop types than other players will, which will seem mostly unfamiliar. Available Anthropus troops include Brats, Cannibals, Stenches, She-Devils, Clubbers, Hurlers, Shredders, Chieftains and Bloods. Advance your Clairvoyance and send in huge armies of scouts to find out more about their stats but in general, think of Brats and Cannibals like Conscripts, Stenches and She-devils like Halberdiers, Clubbers as Minotaurs, Hurlers as Longbowmen, Shredders as Battle Dragons, Chieftains like Giants and Bloods like Fire Mirrors. Add a little more strength to your estimations for each, though.
Keep your Storage Vault upgraded in order to hide resources from other players, and make them immune to getting stolen. This should be one of the first things that you use a Completion Scroll on, since it’s so important. With a fully-leveled vault, you’ll be able to set your troops on evade at all times because it won’t be all that important to defend what few resources you have past 500,000 apiece.
You can get Dragon Eggs by “exploring around Atlantis”, which means beating high level wilds, usually. The higher the level of the wild, the more likely you are to earn a Dragon Egg.
