    Hammer cost of Abashi and Eurabatres: 360 Each
    Hammer cost of Stir from Slumber (for Drifa): 900

    Really?

    I know Drifa is a second hero on top Wilboman and that the Illians already get the Priests of Winter, but 900 hammers for Drifa when its peers cost almost 2/3rds less? Really?

    Not to mention that Abashi and Eurabatres can be created as soon as you get the tech, while to get Drifa someone needs to be killed first. Even more hammers spent on an invading army.

    It is my belief that Drifa has a bigger reputation and a bigger list of great deeds than all the other dragons:p

    Seriously, the difference is that Drifa increases his strength by 50% when he is on the ice.

    If Drifa comes alive and you hit The Deepening, unstoppable will be the cold cold nightmare!
    - acknowledge this fact and bow and shiver before the mighty Drifa!


    Btw, if you go to late game with the Ilians, you will probably want to get the Celestial Compass to have plus 50% production speed for most of your rituals anyway.

    Drifa has a bigger reputation that Eurabatres, who has been named the most powerful being ever created (excluding those made by The One himself, but presumably including the current God of Nature who started out as an archangel name by Sucellus)?

    That’s like comparing Chuck Norris with Bruce Lee. Obviously Lee was always stronger, but Norris was the one with the badass rep. Norris's armor of back hair didn't save him in Return of the Dragon.

    It's the Illians, aka the Overpriced Hoop-Jumpers. What else would you expect?

    It was his chest hair that Lee ripped off :p His back is still intact.
