OK, so we already have the good new, some new dragons are in the game. Now let's talk about the bad news, or nerfs as some of us old-schoolers call them.

1) Non-neighbors can now only play with 3 dragons instead of 5. Neighbors can still play with 6 dragons.
2) Second nests cost 125 gold instead of the 25 gold that it used to. Grats to those who bought at the discounted price.
3) The cost of accelerating land clearing has increased by ten-fold. For example, if you have 4 hours remaining on clearing, it will cost 40 gold now, not 4.
4) Tired dragons appear to be nerfed, too, though I'm still trying to nail down exactly how.

Fell free to post any comments, questions, or additional nerfs below.

My second nest still costs 25, which I'm confused by. Maybe nest prices are random, like some have said?

I don't get the reasoning behind different prices for people. No way am I paying 10 bucks for a second nest (250 gems). What are the chances they'll lower it back down to 25 gems? Slim to nil, especially if people are buying the inflated ones.

And here I thought I was going to welcome some new friends/nerds to the neighborhood! ;)

I don't get the reasoning behind different pricing either. Still not sure if the varied food and coin pricing is a nerf or intentional?

Maybe the people who are being charged a lot of gold for nests are the ppl who buy gold?

Theres always some explaination behind the madness.

I have never purchased gold and my second nest is 25.

I have never purchased gold and my 2nd nest is 50. On a new game i started 2 days ago its 250. When i first started it was 25. I'm thinking the higher level you are the cheaper it is?

Maybe brohim is on to something? I'm level 24 and my second nest was 25 gold.

I think the different price is randomly set. When I started playing, the second nest was 25 gold. Now, I'm lv.20, and my second nest is currently priced at 50. I guess the price 'distribution' is also based on your luck, perhaps?

i dont buy gold nor will ever buy gold but i have third nest at 500 gold...i think those who have it at 25 and 50 should buy it now because i bought my second at 25 gold

Bought my second at 25 gold, the cost quoted in my market for my third if I choose to buy (not likely) is 500 gold.

You don't really need a 3rd nest.... I will save my gold receive to see if I can't breed a diamond I'll buy one with gold saved lol if I ever save enough lol

Having 3 nests is definately an advantage when trying to breed the elusive diamond. I advise those who are still offered them at the lower gold prices to buy them. I doubt there's a link between higher prices and those players who purchase gold. It would be silly for TL to charge these players more. It's not the high priced items that fatten TL's wallet but the lower priced items and ability to speed up breeding/hatching times. Four gold here and six there add up and drain gold reserves far more quickly and quietly than purchasing large ticket items.

Great... I just checked on the price list of the building, and my second nest has jump up from 50 to 250 golds. I was planning to buy some gold in the near future, but seeing how greedy TL is, I am officially not buying any, even if discounted. The gold cost to is too outrageous. I'll keep playing just for the sake of the fun, but I won't spend a single **** penny on anything on this game.

DANG AUTO-CORECT!

Title should read Nerfs,not nerds. Great, now I feel like one.

Want me to edit it? I find it funny! :)

I have purchased some gold, and my third was still 50. The price for a fourth is listed at 100.

Forget I said anything. The option for the fourth nest is now 3200 gold! This is truly quite sad...

The prices on my buildings went way up, and apparently my nest 2nd nest would be 800 gold... I'd upload a pic but not sure how from the iPad... Trying to figure this out

@christalrayn3: the Diamond dragon went up from 1000 to 2000 gold today! Because I was saving for that too!

It's beyond even my budget too. Breeding a Diamond gives the player a challenge & offers a greater amount of satisfaction when bred ;)

My second nest costs 800g... so that's unfair!

Just today food quantities were reduced, though prices stayed the same.

Now instead of 100 Firapples/1hour, you only get 50. Still for $650.
Pumpwings are down to 230/5hours
Eliteleeks are down to 330/8 hours
Scalypears are down to 700/20 hours

I don't remember the quantities for Pumpwings, Eliteleeks and Scalypears from before, but I know they've been reduced. We're getting ripped off.

I was thinking I was seeing things... I notice that yesterday night that instead of 100 fireapples I was only getting 50 but the same price...
I really like the game, but... I don't know if I'm gonna keep playing for too long.

Same here for the third nest. I am so disappointed with TL that they keep changing the "rules" of this game. It is slowly becoming pointless for me to even spend the time playing. You try to complete the goals and the purple habitat increased $100,000. Now the food quantity has been cut in half. What's the point?? Is the diamond dragon that desirable? At this point for me ... I think not. I'm gonna give the game a couple more weeks but will probably only log on twice a day.

Purple habitat is 180,000 now to expand. I don't see a point in playing any more

I have moved my Dragon Story to the back page of my phone (don't want to delete b/c I don't want to get new ads on my primary Story). I guess I am quitting - makes me sad, but oh well. I was only level 15.

Best of luck all!
