I'm taking advantage of our ability to communicate to ask where you stand on prizes. Mine are simple enough, the two new dragons and maybe their pedestals. Since I only collect one of each dragon, I currently have four Galaxy spots available so the fifth island is lower on the list. I can buy the more expensive of the dragons, Glimmerwing, to get it into coop if you want to get the less expensive one in your parks.
Oops, I didn't notice your message until now Seriously, apologies. Did you buy Glimmerwing then? I had hoped you were lucky enough to breed it. I was able to breed Starlight and I'm trying to remember to keep him as my coop dragon. Glimmerwing seems to have six elements, so I think your strategy of buying Glimmerwing was a good one. Thanks for putting your Glimmerwing in coop. I'm breeding with your Glimmerwing now, but having no success so far. I've decided that I really want the habitats, although I may wind up having to buy Glimmerwing.
I bought Glimmerwing and had success breeding a pedestal when Smiley put one in coop. After days of trying to get the Starlight, I finally broke down and bought the dragon then the pedestal yesterday. This is the first time in a long time I have not been able to get all the new content.
It would be surprise if the fifth and sixth Galaxy islands don't end up in the Market. At this point space is not an issue for me anywhere. I had planned on getting the 24th island with my wish a couple weeks ago and the 23rd with coin this past weekend. With two totally empty islands right now, I decided to just wait until the next island sale. By then I could easily have another wish and at least 35-40B DC which would be plenty even if BFS decides to add several more at one time.
With the new year and the addition of the Sugar Shack, I'm trying to go figure out a direction to go with gem and treat friends. I was already down 2 gem friends and now one of my gem/treat friends is just sending gems. Because everyone was added through Game Center, it is frustrating we can't communicate so I have no clue what is up.
Is your TinyGamer park getting the Sugar Shack? If so, do you have friends designated for treats yet? I will be getting mine, but will hold off until the end of the event in case of another pesky limited dragon. Instead of adding 3 new people right away, if any gem only friends want to add treats it will be easier. If TG can't, I will still have the one gem only slot for that game.
Sorry I didn’t see this earlier, Seriously, but unfortunately my games glitched yesterday. Yours is one of the accounts that disappeared from my Social menu in both my theoct and TinyGamer accounts. People can give me gifts in both games, but I can’t return them. I’ll check my son’s game - I think Catguy can get the Sugar Shack so he could start exchanging treats and gems too. So stop giving me gems till this is worked out. :(
I just posted on the thread. I am not actively pursuing new friends until after the event. I still haven't bought the Sugar Shack, just in case of a stupid 3 day limited. Gems are available for Tiny as always so if they bank and you can collect them later great, it won't be hurting me any. Maybe after you get your games fixed and the event is over, we can revisit the gems and/or treats. I would like to get straight with current friends before recruiting any new ones. Especially you because you love the game as much as me and are not going anywhere:-)
Hey Seriously, you're back in all my games! Not all of my friends have returned, but most have so I was able to return a gem to you today. I can't deal with trying to recruit friends through Facebook at all - DV is kind of my escape from real life and I don't want to mix the two. So I'll stick with Game Center friends for now.
I thought about doing that but then I'd have to log in and out of FB on my phone and that sounds more complicated than I want to deal with - I already log in and out of DV accounts. So if you recruit friends through FB, let me know how that goes, maybe it's not as much trouble as I think, beyond having to remember login emails and passwords...
I'm thinking it would just be a matter of connecting DV to the new account then logging in within the game. I don't see any reason to keep logging in and out of FB there. It seems if you did the same you would only need to log in and out of your Dragonvale accounts which you do anyway. On the rare occasions I look at FB it is either on my laptop or through the app on my phone and tablet. The app would just remain connected to my regular account although I do have to figure out how to connect DV to the new account.
Thank you. In the meantime I've been using a Teidian with my Loot trying to get pedestals for both. That's working real well, not. Waiting on a Bronze to hatch and just got a 48 hour fail started this morning.
I will regret this, but I started a new park the other day after the update. At Level 10 it is so boring it makes me wonder why I ever stuck with this the first time, LOL.
Got Wyrmwood, so Elysium is back up in Catgy's game.
Good luck with your new park! When I started the TinyGamer game, I wanted to see how it was for a new player at the time. When I started in 2012, I didn't know what I was doing, didn't know how to get friends and even once I found the wiki and the Friends page, there were a lot of trolls then so you'd add someone and they'd take your gem and never give one back. With TinyGamer, I knew enough to spend a couple of bucks on the beginner's pack so I could get 4 nursery slots right away and kick-start the game, and I had an idea what dragons would be good to go for early on to get the next month's dragons for gem breeding. And it's HUGE to have the coop cave right from the get-go. You'll be stepping up levels pretty quickly, I'm sure! Want to tell me your new park's name and I'll send friend requests from all my games? Having a nice big stable of coop friends has been really helpful in Tiny's game.
I don't know how it works with the new park. Mine is not like yours, using two different GameCenter accounts. It is all the same so I see my current friends list for everything and have no idea what anyone else would see. With the demise of GC, So far I have not updated my iPad and still have GC there because it looks like once it is gone FB may be our only way to add friends.
If you haven't updated your iPad yet, then you can use your old GC to start start a new GC account. You'll need a different email address than the one you use for your Seriously account. Then you could link that second account to your second GC. I'm guessing that although Backflip has figured out way for your second park not to be the dreaded local park that disappears if you delete the app, you may not be getting gems on the second park. But I dunno, friend gems on the second account may not actually be worth the hassle of logging in and out of GC if you can use your coop cave now in both accounts. I can only see your main game and I assume my gems are going to your main game. It's a fun thing to be able to play alt accounts so easily, though. Oh, and did I tell you I have Elysium up in Catguy's game? Awful luck so far, so I suspect I'll have Elysium up for quite a while!
I'm using the Sulfur dragon you have up in one of your parks in an attempt to get Mesolite. This event may not be all that great for me since a Double Rainbow fail is in my breeding island and an attempt to breed Ruby/Pearl resulted in a 24 hour fail.
While visiting your parks I noticed you were still missing some pedestals. As of now I am up to 272 dragons so only 17 short. Basically that means I now have a lot that may be able to help you, unlike a year ago when we started:-)
Hey, Seriously! The only park I care about for pedestals is my theoct game. I'm not sure this event will be great for me either since I'm still trying for Nether in two games and now there's a new Crystalline dragon and they usually take me half the month to get. But thanks for noticing that - it looks like we can breed gemstone/crystalline dragons so if I get Labradorite, maybe I can go for pedestals I'm missing. I'm trying for a twin Nether in coop with that Sulfur. No luck so far and now I'm waiting on a Forge, so I expect that Sulfur will be up for A While. I'll try to remember to leave it up. Good luck - I hope you're able to get some of the dragons you're missing! Great work to get so many dragons in such a short time!
I have been putting Nether up in coop so keep that in mind, especially if you get one and want the pedestal or a second. The odds look much better for Nether/Nether than any of the other combos.
Naturally luck has had a lot to do with getting so many. Another trick was successful for me. Instead of picking combos with the least fails, my choices were always combos with the highest number of useful fails. In other words, a lot have been dragons I wasn't even trying for at the time.
Just an FYI. I'm noticing most of my friends have gone straight to the Chrysalis Dragon. I changed up my strategy to skip Chrysalis and Darkwing in order to get Lacewing & Swallowtail although it will be toward the end of the event for one and during the last week for the second. It will knock me out from breeding during the event, but I'm assuming after the event coop breeding will go back to needing one in the pair to be the target dragon.
That's a good strategy, Seriously. I thought about your strategy but went for the Chrysalis dragon like thousandds of others, hoping to use it to breed other dragons since i was having no luck with Ire/ Chrysalis. After 6 days of breeding my Chrysalis with a friend's Marbletail (I assume that person has lots of disposable income to spend on a game), I finally got the Swallowtail time this morning in Tiny's game. Nothing still in my main game. I'll probably use gems to get the Swallowtail out of Tiny's coop and then lotso gems to hatch it, and then I can use the Chrysalis again if there's a friend with a Lacewing to go for a Duskwing. I'll put Swallowtail in coop then so people can use it. The Sandbox is updated now with the new dragons, and I see that Ire is also a good dragon to use with Swallowtail. Interestingly, the Sandbox estimates a 5% chance of getting a Swallowtail when breeding Swallowtail/ Ire and only a 3% chance of getting a Swallowtail when using Chrysalis/ Marbletail.
I keep changing up my strategy since the cap on banking came to light. Now I probably will go with Duskwing and Swallowtail. If not for that I was on track to get four event dragons and stil be able to purchase Ovalith if breeding it fails. I need to get at least one event dragon and get on breeding ASAP or face the same thing I did after Frostival when everyone moved to breeding other things in coop.
That last issue is part of why I went ahead and got the Chrysalis. During events, if you have lots of friends, every dragon you could possibly want is up there. There were people who must have spent lots of money (and good for them) because they had all five dragons at the first double weekend. After events, they've moved on and those dragons aren't up for coop anymore. My son has spring break after Easter and we'll be on a trip, so I'm trying to save enough extra eggs in my social menu to be able to draw eggs while we're on the trip and I don't have lots of time for the game. After I have a couple of days saved up, I'm looking forward to being able to leave the fifth challenge in there to collect it at the beginning of the next day.
It still sucks that BFS puts us in the position to need friends for so much yet we have no guaranteed way to communicate. I have tried your idea of posting in Game Center, but I don't think anyone else ever reads it.
Enjoy your trip. At least the banking cap will allow you relax;-)
I agree about the communicating! I understand that BFS did that to honor players' privacy, and when my son was 7 and started the game, I was very comforted that predators couldn't contact him At All through this game. For wikians, at least we can leave messages on each others' walls, if we can remember which wikian goes with which Game Center name. Good luck getting your dragons, and let me know what you need. I just got Marbletail as a fail for Swallowtail and put that up. You can take your Mono 6 down unless others are using it - I give up on being able to breed any Monolith dragons. I am probably just going to buy the pedestals. Less frustrating.
I meant to tell you two things. First, after a couple weeks of steady breeding I was able to get the Ornamental you left up in the retired game. When the frenzy here dies down I may go for the pedestal before working on Lace and Verglace. Your help is much appreciated. Second, the fails for Serenity/Chrysalis are not bad at all. Only six and the longest fail is 22 hours. I've been looking at shorter fails as much as anything. Since Ovalith has long fails it will cut into magic eggs to risk a lot of longer ones with the cave and coop. In fact, in my cave I've been working strictly on pedestals to avoid the 48 to 60 hour fails. My luck seems to come from being like a dog with a bone:-) I just keep breeding the same pair over and over until they hit. Without keeping track it seems most happen within two weeks. The exceptions have been Leaf, Ruby and a couple of Crystalline dragons. Ruby took the better part of July and the others were outright fails.
I meant to ask if you still needed Ornamental up, thanks for letting me know. If you're not working on it now, I may switch to Lace because one of Catguy's friends has a message up about needing Lace (they probably won't be looking for lace anytime soon either). I got Ruby when it first came out and kept track because I just knew it would be hard. Took me 75 tries to get the first one. I got a second one at 78 tries. I think it would be worthwhile just to buy Ovalith since there's so much else going on. With Chrysalis, Duskwing and the Marbletail we'll get for free you can breed the other ones. Serenity is a pretty dragon, so at least you have a pretty dragon to look at!
I was only going to use the Ornamental to get a pedestal later if you didn't feel like changing it out. With one of my own it can be done later so Lace would be even better. Out of the five I always had Verglace as last on the list. Poor guy is cute, he just adds the least to the habitati, LOL. Panlong and Bloom are breeding on the island so coop can be saved. The only other limited I'm missing for this month is Quartz. Since I'm already so behind with those and any new ones will just go to the hibernation cave, it is not a priority. I have already designated enough eggs for Ovalith if breeding doesn't pan out. Better to let one or two Chrysalis go than that one;-)
Let me know what you want me to put in coop over the next couple of weeks or however long you need. By tomorrow I should have all available except Swallowtail which is breeding right now and will be available by Wednesday. With not much going in coop, I'm going to be breeding my Bloom with a Panlong someone has designated. I bred one Ovalith and bought one so my banked eggs can buy a third if breeding doesn't pan out this week. The event hasn't been to bad for me since the only thing being left is the Monolith Reward Habitat. It just would have gone in storage anyway, so no big deal.
Thanks Seriously! I wound up playing Catguy's game quite a lot for a retired game, and am now trying to coop breed Chrysalis dragons for him. I'll give up this Friday (going out of town for the weekend). Do you want me to put Lace up then? One of that game's stranger friends lacks a Surprise dragon, so if you're not going for Lace right away, I may put his Surprise dragon up for the stranger friend to see (the poor guy has almost every other dragon).
You can put up two. Start breeding with one then go to the second, open it up and tap the heart icon. My latest Ovalith try ended up at 48 hours so after it is done Lace would be a great one for me to work on. But if you don't want the Catguy park breeding anything, just stick with the Surprise and I can catch Lace later.
I might as well buy that 3rd Ovalith instead of leaving 7,000 eggs. My gift was a Dark Rift so I was going to ask for that one because the only outcome of Dark and Dark should be another for the pedestal. The problem is we have Motley floating around right now so my breed once and done could end up taking weeks:-)
Thanks anyway. I guess what confused me is that I rely on Breeding Sandbox to give me reliable times and in looking at garland and panlong there wasn't anything in between that and a rainbow as a fail but then when I went back and unchecked the quicker breeding times I realized you are right. Anyhoo I think I have one breeding now.
I got the Treatery last week and Dragonsai Tree yesterday. With those I picked up two new "friends" who allegedly will gift both gems and treats daily, we will see if it actually happens. That still leaves me with an extra gem slot. I'm waiting to see if the two new ones pan out and which of my old friends can gift treats regularly before pursuing anyone else. For now it has left me an extra gem to give and since I can't stand seeing them go to waste it has been going to TinyGamer. If the two new folks don't reciprocate any extras will also be divvied up among your parks for now. Don't feel obligated to send back. I know you have a lot of friends who predate me and giving extras to your parks is a big old thanks for your help and advice over the last few month. Can your Catguy game do treats and gems regularly or would you prefer it just be gems?
The potential with the Treatery is especially exciting. Less DC going out for treats and more coming in as everyone gets leveled up. Too cool:-)
Hey Seriously, I think that Catguy's game has enough friends gifting him that I can't reliably gift back both a treat and gem. I'm fine, though with your giving Catguy whichever one is handiest to give, treats or gems.
Then please don't worry about sending anything back. You are the only person I know with multiple parks and like I said, it pains me to see gems or treats leftover when they could go to someone.
Right now I have one long time gem friend who will probably start sending treats regularly and another who is gem only. I just added someone I believe will be very reliable for gems/treats based on their participation here and am getting more proactive about finding new people to add so all the slots are filled. Two people I added over the weekend have been disappointing. Surprisingly enough, one is also a friend of yours although I didn't know until after my request was accepted. As soon as I have a handle on how many gem/treat and how many gem only friends are still needed I will be posting on the friends page.
It's kind of weird how people will send a friend request to someone who's said they're looking for a gem friend, and then that person doesn't send gems reliably. But if you keep looking around, you'll get a good reliable group of gem and treat givers.
Hey Seriously, I've decided to "retire" the Catguy game. It's too time-consuming trying to keep up with 3 games during events. Do you want to switch to giving gems to TinyGamer, or do you have enough other gem friends?
Right now I have 2 other consistant gem friends and 3 gem/treat friends although I'm waiting to see what is up with one who has been missing some days. He may have been too busy, which I get, so as long as there is no pattern like dropping to every other day it will all be good. I've had some good luck with the friends page here and could really use all 7 slots filled with folks who can gift daily. Now the event is over I really need to stop spending and start saving.
I am curious about what "retire" will mean. Will you just delete the account? Honestly, there have been a couple times when I thought it might be fun to have second park, then yet another event comes along. It amazes me you have kept up with three for as long as you have.
TinyGamer is pretty full, I just hate not to exchange gems with you since you're such a faithful player. I'll play Catguy's game at least through the weekend, which hopefully will give you time to replace him. All my games are linked through Game Center, so they'll remain out there. I have a friend who didn't play the game for 3 years and recently started giving gems again - must have re-downloaded the game and started back. The extra parks are fun except when the events are going. The social aspects of the game (collecting party hats, giving gems, collecting twins from the social menu and even putting dragons in coop) tend to make the games crash on all but my iPhone 6. Playing 3 games on 3 different devices at once is kind of challenging (go to Settings/ Game Center/ log out, then log in a different account), but playing 3 games sequentially on one device makes me stay up too late way too often. But the Catguy game will be out there if I want to play it in the future.
On you way out if you want to designate Ornamental as your coop dragon I wouldn't mind a bit, LOL. I focused on everything but the dragons during Frositval thinking it wouldn't be too bad getting them later. A month and a half later and I still just have Dazzling and Flicker, the same two I finished the event with. SMH.
Don't worry about me and gems. I appreciate you getting me over whatever was preventing me from just asking folks. It seems there are always players looking to replace someone who dropped out so one person for a week or so won't make or break it. Being at Level 75 with over 220 dragons also makes me more valuable:)
I posted on Catguy's Game Center account that the game will be retired as of 2/20, hoping that maybe some of the people who give gems to that game will see it and know to find other gem friends. Trying for a Surprise dragon in his coop until then, but I'll put Ornamental in before I go. It'll be interesting to see if I can actually stay off that game, or if I try to sneak in once a day or so to put dragons back in. If you get gems occasionally from that game, don't encourage me by giving gems back. Lol.
Too funny. DV does seem to be quite the addiction. I never imagined "playing" a game that has very little playing.
If you need me to put up my Surprise dragon, just let me know. For some reason my luck has been incredible the last few weeks. Just since 2/1 I've gotten Amethyst, Jet, Okenite, Love, Rose, Moonstruck, Carnival with a pedestal, Malachite, Plasma and Current!
Happy Monday, Seriously! I just put Ornamental in coop for Catguy, so go for it. When you get Ornamental, let me know if you want me to put a different Ornamental dragon in coop in his game. Or any other dragon.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Lucky you to get all my requests since I can't communicate with any other "friends." I have to share this good news. Since my post three days ago I have managed to get Ironwood and have Shadow incubating right now. My elementals are complete! I am moving on to the three non-limited Epics. Not bad for 11 months;-)
Congrats, Ironwood was more difficult for me to get in TinyGamer's game than Malachite was. You're doing really well for having played less than a year! I like how Backflip makes it possible for people to get all the dragons, even ones that were released long before they started playing. It's a lot of working getting those old dragons and the new ones too, but at least it's possible.
It is cool to be able to get both dragons and previous content. I spent a bunch to buy almost everything during BEB. None of this would have been possible without a great deal of both persistence and luck the last few weeks along with the break in events.
Thought I posted a reply, but it's not showing... no, CatGuy is still retired, but it occurred to me that since it may be hard to get enough eggs for this event, I could go into that game and give away gems and treats and we'd get needed event eggs. I had also told my sister the max yesterday was 1,500 when I knew it was 1,550, so I felt like I owed her some magic eggs. No need to return anything, and I may not go into that game every day, but when I do, I'll give us some gems and treats and magic eggs for this event.
Neat idea. One of my gem/treat friends disappeared on February 23. I gave them 15 days in case of vacation or something then was able to replace them quickly right before the start of the event. With no way to communicate, I felt there was no choice. It really is unusual for people to take vacations longer than even a week these days, so two weeks seemed generous enough.
This event is so much more expensive than the last one. Right now I only have 2 of the prizes. At the start of the last one I only had 3 of them to begin, but I was able to breed Love, Rose and Moonstruck within the first week. The only thing available to be bred is the Monolith before getting into the event dragons. The event dragons cost 36,480 alone which is almost 18,000 more than the Aura Dragons. It is going to take some real coordination between friends to get a chance to breed them before the event is over and the odds go down.
Do you think Wolfie is scared to death there might be one member of this Wiki who doesn't know he hates events? Hahahahaha. Posting it once a while maybe, but as soon as the first hint of one is released it's posted over and over and over and over.......... :-)
Lol, Wolfie is famous for not liking events! I've been dreading the holiday event too - I'm sooo behind on Christmas this year. And I really WOULD like to spend less time with my head down holding my device and more time looking up at my family and friends. But I'm pretty sure I'm going to want a Decorative Habitat all gussied up with Lace on it from the Lace dragon...
You stalking me Wolfie?:D And is that famous or infamous DragOnIn, LOL!
I'm sticking with events can be a good way to break things up. On the other hand, a small break would be welcome so I can catch up. As hard as it for you long time players to keep up with all the new releases, imagine what it's like for a relative newbie like me. I've been missing the same 5 elemental dragons for a few months now. In the past it would work out a needed elemental might be had as a fail for one of the Limited Epics. Not so much anymore.
There is an upside to the timing of this event. I've already managed to get my Mistletoe and pedestal, Turquoise and 9, yes 9, Reindeer dragons. Maybe it's because I've been a very good girl this year, LOL!
I just check the feed and read threads from time to time lol! My main issue with em are how long they take, if every event was like Farie (and not as long as Farie) I would have way fewer issues with them. Congreats on the reindeer dragons!
I'm down for shorter definitely. The Faire was easy and allowed me to get a lot of content, but dang it was neverending. Fingers crossed the FB fans aren't getting their way again so Frostival will be as relaxing as the Om of Noms.
Seriously, that's so cool that you have 9 Reindeer dragons - that's Santa's entire sleigh, including Rudy! I started a new game this year on my old iPhone when I got an iPhone 6, just so I could see what it's like for a new player. And it IS a pain, I only JUST got all the Dark dragons this week, and I haven't had time to try for Dodo/Sandstorm yet. I only have 1 Reindeer dragon in my new game, and 1 Mistletoe. I'm with you three too, I liked the structure of the Faire event, but it was too long. It was a pain to get to the max for the Halloween event, and between my two games and playing my son's game too, it was a serious time suck. If this event is like the Halloween event, I'm going to have to make myself be OK with not putting the time in to get everything.
Can you imagine how shocked I was? The first two Reindeer were fails from the Mistletoe combo which included getting a Mistletoe, all within about 3 or 4 days of them being released. After that I kept breeding that combo on my island and two Reindeer in the cave. It seemed every second or third try was another Reindeer in both. Here's to hoping I didn't burn out my luck before Frostival even starts, LOL.
I've considered starting a second park. Since I was clueless in the beginning, it makes me curious to see what would happen now using some actual strategy from the beginning. OTOH, this one already takes more time than I should be spending on a game:/
I thought you were fairly filled up with gem trading, is that correct? I added someone new a couple of weeks ago so that makes two people who can trade daily so far. It's time I kicked it up, get the Dragonsai tree and focus on filling mine. So my real question is are you rotating giving gems in order to include me? And while I still have one space open which of your parks could use an extra gem every day? I would like to figure out our situation before going on the hunt for more gem traders:-)
Hey Seriously, I've been trying to give you gems when you give gems but get confused now and then. Go ahead and find some friends who can be daily gem friends, really reliable about exchanging gems. Catguy has the fewest friends so that game has the best likelihood, but even there I randomly have people who give a gem or treat and then I have a gem/treat to return. Get a person who can be a daily friend and then once you get the Dragonsai tree, then go back to giving a gem to Catguy. And besides, we have a long weekend coming up and I may not have wifi or time to play the game, so better to get someone now. Thanks for asking! You're doing great with your game!
Cool. I will focus on Catguy for now. When you stop seeing gems from me it will mean I've filled my third slot and will add CG back in after getting a Dragonsai Tree.
Thanks for the props for my park. I'm playing way too much, LOL! Starting this month I wanted to purchase some gems each month. Not a lot, like $1.99 to $4.99 worth which seems a reasonable amount to pay for a game I like so much. I haven't decided if it will be worth buying candy for this event so the gems will probably serve me better.
any chance you can leave an Apocalypse up for coop breeding for awhile? All these new limited dragons have me up against the wall. With 15 minutes to spare (and 600 gems and $9.99) I managed to get the Equinox. Bismuth is still eluding me so Lunar Eclipse and Apocalypse were going to be tough enough.
No worries. I did manage to get an Apocalypse as a fail so 1 out of 4:( I'm beginning to think Bismuth and the Lunar Eclipse just aren't going to happen for me. Lunar is actually the last Sun dragon I need. Attempts for Bismuth have gotten me two, yes two, Double Rainbow fails.
On a lighter note. I finally got my 9th Island which allowed me to make a whole island for the seasonal dragons and habitats, the large for the actual Seasonal Dragon and 4 small for the others. It looks so cool decorated for fall with a bunch of red and yellow trees. Now to get all those habitats filled!
I know what you mean! In Tiny's game, I keep getting more and more dragons that I think, "I'll just have to go for that one in coop later." In my own game, I'm trying for Omen in all 3 locations and I'm getting a lot of long fails. Nothin', nothin', nuthin...
I checked out your dragon park, and it looks cool!
Awww, thanks. Can you tell I really like decorating my park and trees:) I wrote this on the seasonal thread, it would be so cool if they gave us a seasonal island theme that would change. Themes were not really high on my list until seeing what a difference they can make.
I've been trying to keep up with the limited dragons. Now it seems they throw out so many at one time it's really tough on newbies like me. There was a lot of speculation about an upgraded nursery after this event. That would have been spectacular. I'm not overly impressed with the elder dragons. I also wasn't paying attention to treats after deciding to level up Fire. Getting to 19 took me from 7.5 million down to just over 1 million. Only Fire and Cold are getting leveled up and it will probably delay me getting my 10th island by a month or more.
Hey, I tried to reply on my phone last night but the message wouldn't post. I think a Seasonal island theme would be cool, we'll have to talk that up. Trying to figure out the ins and outs of the new update and it's giving me a headache now. Takes a ton of treats to get a primary dragon from level 20 to Elder level, and the primary dragons haven't been the ones I've been working on to get to level 20. So this will be a slog. Anyway, I was lucky enough to get an Omen dragon as a twin yesterday from someone breeding with my Apocalypse dragon. So my Omen is now in coop. You could pair it with another Epic (like Midday, an 8 hour fail). You have Apocalypse now, but if you want to go with Apocalyypse in coop, I have that in at least one of the other two games, Catguy007 or TinyGamer007.
My coop is tied up with a 48 hour fail. I seem to have more luck by just hitting retry over and over instead of switching up combos. I also had to buy some gems, but after spending $30 in September between gems and tickets, it is time to go easy on spending them. I was loving the extra gems from the wheel of fortune while it lasted.
The reason I brought up the Seasonal theme on that thread was in hopes of some buzz. It seems BFS does incorporate ideas from here.
Woo hoo. I got the Lunar Eclipse last night. Since you put up your Omen I may burn some gems to clear the island and coop so I can breed my own Moon and Apocalypse and try your suggestion of another Epic in coop. Looks like either Dawn, Dusk or Midday have the same fails and I could use the pedestals for all of them.
BTW, I want to thank you for your generosity. I notice whenever we have limited dragons you almost always have some dragons up to help your friends. My first "friend" came from one of Macenstein's pages. She was looking for someone to breed Galaxies. Like you her park is at 70 and she has multiples of many dragons. Since she got her galaxy from me, which was a twin from my breeding, she almost tries not to designate any dragons that might help me. She already has an Omen and is trying for another in her own cave while she has an Antarian up for coop. It is time for me to work toward the Dragonsai tree and some regular gem exchanges to save buying so many. When I do she is getting cut off:/
I can't visit other people's parks on any device but my newest, my iPhone 6. The game crashes on my other devices when I try to visit friends' parks. It may be that your first stranger friend plays on a device where she can't visit other people's pages so she doesn't know what you need. I can't see NOT putting an Omen up for coop though, that's just not nice, so I'm guessing that she has a real-life friend she's trying to help. I do put dragons up that I think will help lower-level friends when there's a new, hard-to-get dragon available. I think I'll be leaving Omen up for a while no matter what comes up next, and hoping that they'll make the odds easier after it leaves the market. I hate getting these dumb Lodestone, Electrum and Silver fails. Congrats on your Lunar Eclipse dragon - I got one in Tiny's game just before it left too! I like the baby form of Lunar Eclipse the most, so I'm going to make mine a baby after I feed her up.
I'm way more cynical than you:) I tried to think that way, but going back to Elysium the same thing happened. When a brand new dragon is introduced it is not exactly rocket science, nobody is going to have it yet. Even then she never put up any of her Dream or Gold Olympus dragons. After reading some threads here it's obvious some people are really competitive about the game. I've never understood why since most of us don't see anyone else's park or know what they have and the leaderboard on Gamecenter is a joke because of all the hackers. For me it's actually just a relaxing diversion, no competition.
I'm not a fan of the Lunar all grown up. She's going to stay an adult for now because my DC reserves are low so no taking a dragon out of service for 12 hours unless it's breeding. At this point I would really like a quiet week or two or even three. It is time for Opal and Autumn and I'm still working on Bismuth. It would also be nice to use one spot to work on my last 6 elementals or just some breeding to sell eggs.
