The dragon Question - A suggestion
I suggest that you add a series of "end game" quests which would not only serve to introduce the dragon civilization but also provide players with a counter. The main purpose of these quests would be to introduce a new hero to the players which would be based on their race.
Humans on completion of the series of quests would be rewarded with a griffon mounted hero (same stats as regular hero except: loses aoe heal and aoe buff/regen, gains talon smash (aoe pushback/damage) and flight)
Elves on completion would receive a pegasus mounted hero (same stats as regular hero, loses aoe heal and armor buff, gains wing buffet (aoe pushback and damage) and flight)
Orcs on completion would receive drake mounted hero (same stats as regular hero, loses aoe buff and aoe heal, gains tail swipe (aoe pushback and damage) and flight)
Dwarves on completion would receive golem riding dwarf hero ( same stats as regular hero, loses aoe buff and aoe heal, gains Ground smash ( aoe dmg and slow) and jump (can jump large distances))
the orc/human and elf heros would be armed with a long lance, the dwarf a dragon hunting harpoon (short range)
These heros would be the race's dragon hunters, the main purpose would be to track and chase the dragons around the battle field. they should inflict massive damage on dragons when they catch up to them but be less effective against regular ground troops than the regular hero. this would add a hard counter to the dragons and a new dynamic to the battle while keeping the dragons feeling as powerful as they should be and adding instead of subtracting to the game experience.
