Quick Links

Dragons are an extremely useful unit type in Tactics Ogre: Reborn. They have very high health, fantastic defensive skills in Dragon's Scale, and powerful ranged and breath weapons that can inflict useful status effects.

If you're trying to work out how to track down Dragons in Tactics Ogre Reborn and tame any or all of the different variants, this guide is here to help.

Recruitable Dragons

Tactics Ogre: Reborn: How To Recruit Every Dragon

Not all the Dragons you encounter in battles are tamable. The following table breaks down which ones you can add to your roster. Mostly the non-recruitable Dragons are only found in endgame Dungeons, so for most of the game, any Dragons you see will be potential recruits.

Recruitable Arc, Cloud, Dark, Earth, Flame, Flood, Frost, Hydra, Thunder
Non-Recruitable Crystal, Onyx, Scylla, Naga

Recruiting Tips

Tactics Ogre: Reborn: How To Recruit Every Dragon

  • Make sure you are using the right skill for the job: Dragons can only be recruited with the Tame skill, which is only available to Beastmasters.
  • Stand as close as possible to your recruiting target. Though the game will let you try the Recruit skill from any range, it is almost only effective from within a square or two.
  • Make sure your target has as low HP as possible. At most, they should be in a Critical state (10% or less health).
  • Ensure they are not afflicted with Status conditions like Sleep, Frighten, or similar. Some of these will completely prevent you from recruiting, and others will significantly lower the success chance.
  • Check their Loyalty to find the easiest ones to recruit. You can see this in the Condition Screen.

Dragons Found In Dungeons

Tactics Ogre: Reborn: How To Recruit Every Dragon

Recruiting Dragons (and any other enemies) in Dungeons is the easiest way to do it, as you do not have to worry about mission pressures while you go about your taming. You can also retreat from maps if they don't have the enemy spawns you want and then re-enter to try again. Finally, when you get the recruit you are looking for, you can retreat from the map without finishing off all the other enemies.

Dragons Location Tips
Cloud, Earth, Flame, Flood, Frost, Thunder Phorampa Wildwood in the Field of Fallen Shadow and Untrodden Marsh maps Field Of Fallen Shadow, in particular, is one of the earliest and most reliable ways to find dragons, as you will get between 3-6 different ones spawning every time you enter this map.
Hydra Fortress of Lhazan, a Shrine Dungeon that opens late in Chapter 4 of the game Opening this dungeon is quite a lengthy process that involves a mini-story, but you will want to do so, as the Shrine battles contain many powerful and unique items. It also potentially allows you to recruit one of the best Beastmasters in the game, Occione.
Dark Found in several levels in the endgame Palace of the Dead Dungeon (5, 35, and 38) and the endgame San Bronsa Ruins Dungeon (8 and 12) Take extra care in these locations that you are not trying to tame the Unrecruitable Dragon types mentioned earlier. They look very similar to your targets and are quite common in the endgame dungeons.
Arc Found in Level 7 and Level 12 of the endgame San Bronsa Ruins Dungeon San Bronsa has a very challenging terrain with many elevation changes. If you have a Winged Beastmaster (Canopus makes a great one), you will find it much easier to Tame here.

Dragons Found In Story Missions
