Confirmation

HJP

High Jupiter's Trial was announced on 23 July, 2019 at 1:00 AM.

Speculation

Speculation

The remaining Advanced Dragon Trials have been awaited since Dragalia Lost launched in September of last year.

So far, three have been revealed:

  • High Midgardsormr-- available at launch (first clear 19 October, 2018)
  • High Brunhilda-- released 16 December 2018 
  • High Mercury-- released 18 April 2019

With one coming out every three months, we expect another High Dragon battle update soon.

Why Jupiter?

New audio files were found in the game's data recently:

ID Numbers

These sound effect files came labeled with the ID number (BaseID) 210041, which sequentially follows the ID of High Mercury. The same sequence is seen with their normal dragon counterparts:
 

Comparing Dragon BaseID
Dragon Normal BaseID High Dragon BaseID
Midgardsormr 210001 210038
Brunhilda 210002 210039
Mercury 210003 210040
Jupiter 210004 Probably 210041
Zodiark 210005 Probably 210042

And of course, this order follows how the UI tends to sort elements, so Jupiter has been expected as the next High Dragon for quite awhile. The confirming factor here is the sounds themselves-- thunderclaps, static and crackling associated with electricity are present. This bit even alludes to a five-hit attack pattern, with the fifth hit being the most powerful: 

A four-hit variant is also present, so these are likely variants of the same attack in different stages of the battle (similar to High Midgardsormr's Trident Tempest).  

It is a bit early to guarantee anything, but game updates are expected tomorrow at  reset time (6:00 AM UST) and possibly on Friday's reset time (July 26th at 6:00 AM UST) when the Dragon Special Summon ends. Stay tuned for teasers or announcements at these times!
