The Flame Stalker (also known as the Fire Dragon from the alpha) is the third largest dragon in the game. Its element is fire. It has a relatively medium build body with a slim tail and wide, narrow wings and spikes running down it’s body and tail with Particularly large ridges of horns frame the edges of its faces . The Flame Stalker can be identified by its resemblance to a common European Dragon: a wondrous and dangerous hunter of the skies that burns its opponents with its destructive fire breath. It is a powerful creature whose capabilities should not be underestimated.

Flame Stalker is one of the three free playable creatures to be released in Genesis 1.0 update along with the Shadow Scale, Inferno Ravager and Fire Elemental. It was the first creature to receive a new custom appearance by Jia Hao for Day of Dragons.

Special Ability[]

The Flame Stalker's special ability is a thermal sense, which allows it to see all warm-blooded creatures within the surrounding area. This includes AI creatures and other dragons, even invisible Shadow Scales. It has been implied that the only drawback of thermal sense ability may be hot environments, which might obscure other creatures' heat signatures.


The Flame Stalker is carnivorous, and therefore it must hunt AI creatures or other dragons for food. Their natural environment the Lava Lands biome. Flame Stalkers are relatively fast and slightly more powerful in terms of damage than the Inferno Ravager. Their primary ability is a fire breath that can ignite other dragons from a medium distance, which will inflict fire damage on the target over time. Flame Stalkers have a natural resistance against fire and do not take as much fire damage from other fire-based creatures. When fighting or hunting other creatures with the fire element, Flame Stalkers rely on melee-based abilities such as the bite attack to inflict damage.

The Flame Stalker's special ability is used to detect other dragon's heat signatures within a nearby radius. It is currently one of the two known ways to counter the Shadow Scale's cloaking ability. Thermal sense can also be used to detect prey in dense vegetation, or to track enemies through dimly lit areas.


All skins can be used in-game by being nested in by parents that have them. Kickstarter and lifetime Patreon skins can have a shimmer effect added on top of them. This will change the name of the skin in the information menu, but the skin acts as its non-shimmer counterpart when nesting.

Base Skins[]

The base skins can be selected when first spawning into the world. Depending on the skin, you may be required to do something to unlock it, get lucky with a random spawn, or posses a DLC key.
