This is a big topic to cover so lets tackle it by the types of dragons! By knowing how to fly a certain dragons you will be able to take on bases of all types and styles. So what we need to do is focus on looking at the base set up first, because looking at the base set up will help you determine and choose the appropriate dragon. We all know that each dragon has special abilities that enable the dragon to do different things. They have abilities and spells that they use to take on bases and enemies!
Let's take the most popular type of dragon that most players are using, the Hunter class!! One of my favorites and the one I will use as an example is Aster! Aster has awesome abilities that allow him to function in many different roles. Aster has the ability to cloak which will make him invisible to the towers. This ability allows the hunter to sneak through the base destroying key targets! When aster is used like that you and your back up can actually take bigger basses. Besides his cloaking feature he has the ability to Steal Essence from the towers and get different abilities depending on the type of tower destroyed. This key feature is extremely useful in planning your attack by knowing what towers give you what abilities.
Here is a list of abilities that each tower gives:
Lumber Mill - Cure Poison
Sheep Farm - Rejuvenate
Cannon Tower - Stoneskin Shield
Archer Tower - Fireball
Storm Tower - Invincibility Shield
Ballista - Wind Wall
Red Mage Tower - Reverse Projectiles
Blue Mage Tower - Explosive Shield
Trebuchet - Freeze
Lightning Tower - Chain Lightning
Ice Turret - Havoc
Fire Turret - Spell Flux
Totems - Rejuvenate
Dark Flak Tower - Lock Down
Having a list like this will help you pick your targets when you are flying!! I wanted to have a video to help demonstrate but i think I will have to add it later. One of my favorite was to use aster is on a base where there are a lot of trebuchet's because that allows me to freeze entire sections an pick of the towers without worry of being hit by attacks. That spell gives you the same effect as when flying a sorcerer.
So, by looking at the base layout and seeing what you are up against you will know better what hunter to use and how to go about your attack!! By looking at this screen shot we can see that there are a good amount of trebuchet's and that will give us the ability to freeze entire sections of the base. That alone will give me a good feeling for choosing a dragon like Aster or WhaleGnawer who have the ability to steal essence.
