Dragons of Atlantis Items
Dragons of Atlantis is a Facebook empire building game where you build
up your city and army to conquer land, join alliances, and wage war on
other alliances. This guide will help you understand the extra Dragons of Atlantis items that will help you on your way to building an unstoppable empire!
Fortuna's Chance is a random "spin" that you get once a day for logging in to Dragons of Atlantis that will give you a random item. Some quests or mystery boxes also contain extra spins on Fortuna's Chance to help you on your way to dominating Dragons of Atlantis.
In Dragons of Atlantis, like many Facebook games, you have the option of spending real money to cut out some of the boring and tedious work of farming for items and can quickly jump to the top of the food chain. Most of the items in Dragons of Atlantis are available through question, gifting, and farming, but if you'd like to skip those steps, all you have to do is pull out your credit card. Below is the pricing structure for buying rubies.

Speed Up Items
Speed up items are in the game to help you build your city and forces more quickly. Each speed up item knocks off a certain amount of time from the construction, research, or training time that is required to build, research, or train your troops. You can purchase these items with rubies (like Farmville cash or Facebook credits that you purchase with real money) or you can find the items in mystery boxes, earn them by completing quests, or obtain them through Fortuna's Chance.
I like to use these items to shorten times on large upgrades when I log in for the first time in a few hours or for the day. That way I have plenty of resources to utilize and I can get a couple quick upgrades in and my timers rolling on a 2nd upgrade in very little time.

- Dragons of Atlantis Start Up Guide
This guide will help you get your city started the right way.
In Dragons of Atlantis, production items or production nanos all you to passively increase your cities production of resources for either 24 hours or for a week. These items can be obtained by purchasing them from the shop for rubies, found when farming camps and wildernesses, by completing quests, and also from chests. These items are especially helpful when you are starting out as you will be constantly building and requiring more resources. They aren't as important later in the game when you can just go farm an Anthropus camp and get a million food, but they definitely don't hurt.
Nano Collectors are a new item in the game and they allow you to automatically transfer your resources from your outpost to your city for the duration of the item. These are very useful as it allows you to protect your resources in your city rather than having to split your troops between your outpost and your city.
Another useful production item is the Double Tax Writ. This allows you to double your income from your population for 24 hours or 7 days.
General items in Dragons of Atlantis are there to help you during the fun part of the game...war. Items like a Dragons Heart, Crimson Bull, Purple Bones, and Glowing Shields are boosts to your troops attack and defense and your dragon's attack and defense. Use these items when you know you'll be attacking and defending a lot during a 24 hour period. Sometimes you can even surprise the players who are attacking you into thinking that you are weaker than you are by applying one of these items and then decimating their forces.
A Water Dragon Egg is a very important item in the game and can be found by farming level 7 or higher Lakes. You need a water dragon egg to start your outpost, which is like having a second city. Check out my Water Dragon Egg guide here.
Dark Warp Device and Outpost Warp items allow you to move the position of your city and outpost to a random location. Sometimes you just get a bad draw and are around a bunch of bullies who have much larger armies than you. If this is the case, just use one of these items to retreat to another location (but write down the coordinates of the bullies so you can go back and hit them when you are strong enough!).
Completion grants are important to the game because you need one to build a building to level 10. These can be found by farming, through quests, bought for rubies, and in chests. On Mother's Day 2011, Dragons of Atlantis staff gave every player one as a gift.
A Cease Fire Treaty is just what it sounds like, if you use one your enemies won't be able to attack you for the duration (12 hours). This is handy if you want to rebuild after an attack or have recently lost a bunch of troops.
You can also buy a Pseudonym Grant to change your avatars name or a Rename Proclamation to rename your city. As far as I know, these can only be purchased for rubies.
Great Dragon Armor and Water Dragon Armor
Great Dragon Armor can be obtain in two ways. You can purchase it for 275 rubies (which would cost you approximately $50 with a few rubies left over) or you can farm it from level 5 and above Anthropus camps. Your Great Dragon Armor allows you to attack with your Great Dragon, which is a big advantage when at war.

Water Dragon Armor
Once you have obtained a Water Dragon Egg and created your outpost, your Water Dragon Armor can be farmed in the same way as your Great Dragon Armor. It is also available for 300 rubies (which will cost you about another $50). A complete set of Water Dragon Armor allows you to attack with your Water Dragon.

As with most Facebook strategy games, new items are released all the time so the best way to stay up on the items is to log in and play the game. Checking the Shop is a great way to see what else is going on in the game and to get an edge on your opponents (and also help your alliance!).
