Dragon’s Peak And Sunburn Details


With the Dragon’s Peak Adventure Pack on its way to store shelves, details are starting to emerge for this final expansion pack, and we’ve go them right here, as well as a collection of incredible Dragon’s Peak and Sunburn images, as seen below. The adventure pack will come with the Dragon’s Peak expansion level, the Sunburn Skylander, the Winged Boots, and the Sparx Dragonfly.

Winged Boots – An incredible speed boost that lasts around thirty seconds.

Sparx Dragonfly – Sparx will flutter around your Skylander, attacking nearby enemies with here fire breath, and will last for about two minutes.

Dragon’s Peak – When placed on the portal, The Dragon’s Peak level will be activated in The Ruins. Dragon’s Peak is a very challenging level for low-level Skylanders. You start your adventure rescuing the Dragon King, and then the level will last an average half an hour, of which you will be faced against many dangerous enemies with relentless attacks.

Sunburn – The elusive phoenix dragon, Sunburn, will take down enemies with his thrashing fiery breath, a quick and dangerous teleport, or even the explosive phoenix dash! Sunburn will only be available in the Dragon’s Peak Adventure Pack, so keep your eyes zoned on those store shelves!

Note: Along with Sunburn, Lightning Rod and Zook are also planned to hit store shelves by the beginning of April. For more information on Skylanders release dates, check out our Skylanders Schedule.

Skylanders Secrets and Speculations

In an interview with FGTV, Toys for Bob studio founder, Paul Reiche, proclaimed his habit of hiding secrets and unlockables within games, and a few certainly have been discovered in Skylanders, so we’ve made a list of secrets you can look for throughout your adventure! I’ve also spent some time speculating certain factors in the game that could be expresssed later in the future, so we will cover that too! Enjoy, spread the word, and if you have any of your own Skylander secrets or speculations, leave them in the comments below!

Secrets:

– While in the Ruins, sheep will flock to either Drill Sergeant or Boomer.

– In Battle Mode, Skylanders of certain elements have stat boosts against Skylanders of the opposing element. For example, water has stat boosts when fighting against the fire element.

– In the Ruins, you will sometimes find a group of molekin camped out beachside, and if you light their camp fire with a fire attack, you will receive a healthy reward!

– If you head to the Ruins and talk to General Robot after receiving the Tech Source, he will gladly summon a fireworks display for you!

– If you are having trouble reaching the Enemy Goal in any particular level, place Sonic Boom on the Portal of Power and summon her babies. Every baby killed is rewarded as a fallen enemy!

– While floating on the water with your Stump Smash (You have to obtain his Soul Gem to float), press the attack button to spit a stream of water.

– All Earth element Skylanders can destroy rocks without the mining pick, and both Prism Break and Whirlwind can destroy the purple diamonds, located in some levels and Heroic Challenges.

– Occasionally, you can catch a glimpse of a Bark Demon from the Darklight Crypt Adventure Pack munching on come chompies!

Speculations:

-In the trailer for Skylanders Giants, Flameslinger removes his Red Bandana, only to show he has a yellow one underneath. Im guessing and hoping that when the new pose Skylanders are released with Giants, the Flameslinger will feature a yellow bandana!

– One of the Story Scrolls located within the Adventure states that at one time there were hundreds of Skylanders, and hints that one day they may all make their return!

– Upon completing the Adventure, you and your friends freeze Chaos and send him flying for Earth. I’ve been wondering if a Chaos Figure will one day be released, that may serve as an alternate ending or a boss fight expansion level of sorts; basically like a Chaos Adventure Pack!

Keep in mind that the three speculations I made above are in no way confirmed and should not be taken as fact. What are some speculations you may have discovered in Skylanders? Post your ideas in the comments below, and check back soon for some exciting news!
