CastleVille Battle for the Portal Quests: Everything you need to know


While the stereotype of dragons being large, scary monsters may hold true elsewhere, we've met quite a few friendly dragons within the world of CastleVille that just want to be our friends. Such is the case with a poor dragon named Blaze, tasked with guarding a magical portal until he's caught by the evil Faugrimm.
