The Lightning Flight is one of the 11 Elemental Flights in Flight Rising.

Its reigning deity is The Stormcatcher, and its members reside in the Shifting Expanse. Lightning dragons' eyes come in shades of cyan. It is the 5th largest flight as of December 2nd, 2018.

AboutEdit

Stormcatcher Icon

The Lightning dragons of the Shifting Expanse are engineers. They prefer to be quick and intuitive, to better harness the power of the tempest under which they make their home. Of all the dragons, Lightning dragons are the most ambitious, changing the world to adapt to them, rather than adapting to the world. Copper wire, tools, and reactors are their favored treasures.

RegionEdit

Region Lightning

The Lightning Flight is centralized in the Shifting Expanse. The land is separated into four regions: Highland Scrub, Carrion Canyon, the Lightning Farm and Tempest Spire. The Expanse is bordered by the Fire, Light, and Water Flight territories.

Two associated locations—Thunderhead Savanna and Golem Workshop—can be visited in the Coliseum.



Region Image Description
Lightning 0

Highland Scrub

An arid stretch of land that can be considered the region's most docile area. Low shrubbery clings to life in a place where moisture is precious, and hundreds of species of lizards and carrion birds clamor for supremacy in the wind and heat. Cactus plants provide well-wandering dragons with water enough to find the next shady spot.
Lightning 1

Carrion Canyon

On the edge of a crackling thunderstorm, this great canyon carves the region in two, providing a natural defense for the clans that live among the mesas to the east. This large divide is nearly devoid of life, with only the bones and corpses of creatures long dead to remind travelers that the cross is plenty dangerous.
Lightning 2

The Lightning Farm

An impressive array of rods and spires, thrust into the static-charged, superheated air. Atop these flats, lightning strikes these coils thousands of times an hour, providing energy to machines unseen. Hundreds of cables drape from mesa to mesa, like a vibrant, deadly spiderweb of concentrated energy.
Lightning 3

Tempest Spire

A large, central tower scraping the bottom of the stormclouds that scream and roar overhead. The air is deadly up here, torrents of powerful lightning clapping the metallic framework that holds this feat of technology together. It is from this conductor that the Stormcatcher bellows instructions to his employees below.
