Sidekicks[edit]

Sidekicks are dragons that can be bought as eggs, through either coins or trophies, in the dragon roost, or obtained by challenging friends to play Everwing.

Dragons are one of five rarities: Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary and Mythic. Common dragons have no special powers, but have high attack damage. Rare dragons have special powers, and medium attack damage. Legendary dragons usually have better special powers, and medium to high attack damage.

Dragons have a different number of stars depending on how evolved they are. A one star dragon can only level up to level 10. It must be evolved to level up further and become a 2-star dragon. A 2-star dragon can only level up to level 20 before it must evolve up to 3 stars. A level 30, 3 star dragon is the highest level a dragon can reach.

In order to evolve a dragon, you need two of the same dragons at their maximum level. If they have the same zodiac sign, the dragon will receive bonus damage of 25% and 30% for each tier.

Dragons can be sold (permanently) for trophies or money. Dragons that are at level 10, 20 or 30 sell for Trophies, whereas at any other level, it is for money.
