Shadow Fight Wiki

A Hard-Won Lesson is the name of a special quest in Shadow Fight 3, available to be played as the part of Dragon Lesson event.

There was a martial arts school known as the Frozen Dragon School, which taught the pure-blooded children of the Dynasty to become the military elite. As time changed, the school's tactics became obsolete, and the school's mentor retired to the mountains to find a new, effective fighting style. This caused the school to stop teaching martial arts anymore. The player is asked to fight the school mentor in order to help him develop his new technique.

Galen return and informs the player about the Frozen Dragon School. Galen tells that the school's mentor heard an ominous voices during his meditations. He is confident that the world is about to face a horrible evil. The mentor asked Galen to train his pupils, and he asked the players for help with it, as they are experienced warrior.

The Ominous Voice appear during the training. It said that humans are most peculiar creatures, a true treasure which would be an excellent addition to it's collection. Galen, however, was surprised to hear the voice. He said not to be afraid and panic, and they should continue the training.

Dangerous Show Ticket.png

There are two modes available: Regular and Grand. Grand yields higher rewards and carries random rules in each stage, making it much harder. It can be played by paying 1 ticket. The ticket can be obtained from the Marathon or bought from the shop for 300 gems. Regular does not have random rules like in Grand, but yields lower rewards instead. It can be played by paying coins (the price depends on the player's progress in the story).

The players will face the school disciples wielding various weapons. A single disciple appears for only one stage per run, while their teacher, Dragon Mentor, appears in fixed stages. Each round is timed 99 seconds, and the players must defeat the Dragon disciples before the timer ends, otherwise they will lose.
