Update:


Hello,

I wanted to let you all know we're planning to release the Trading and Crafting features to 100% of iOS players Friday morning.

The only difference is that the Ruby Dragon won't be the only dragon you can craft... :)

As a reminder, these features are only available with the 1.2 version from a few weeks ago. If you got that, you have these features. We just have to turn them on.

Game on,

-Jake.



Greetings Caretakers,

It's my pleasure to introduce the two largest features we've added to Dragon Story since the game's debut: Spell Crafting and Trading.

These features are the two pieces of a brand new experience on the Dragon Isles that we think you'll really enjoy!

Spell Crafting is introduced with a new building, the Spell Shop.

http://i.imgur.com/gu6jl.png

The Spell Shop is a giant, mystical book of spell recipes that lets you craft never-before seen decorations, magical items, and most importantly: new dragons. Gemstone Dragons.

But recipes have ingredients, and I'll bet you're wondering what goes into a mixing bowl that bakes a dragon. That brings us to the second new building: the Trading Portal.

http://i.imgur.com/JT2RO.png

The Trading Portal finally gives players something to do with duplicate or excess dragons. We know space is limited on your Dragon Isles, and sometimes there are a few extra (*ahem* Firestorm *ahem*) dragons that you wish had some other use. Well now they do. Say goodbye and send a dragon through the Trading Portal and it will leave its magic behind in the form of powerful Gemstones and magic items. These are the ingredients you need to craft the new gemstone dragons available in the Spell Shop.

So, send dragons through the Trading Portal, collect the rewards, and use those to craft new dragons in the Spell Shop. Those are the basics. Now, let me dig in a little deeper.

How does the Trading Portal work?
When a dragon is traded, you get Gemstones based on the dragon's color(s) and rarity. I'll let community members break down the math, but basically a Red/Blue dragon will give you Rubies and Sapphires. Those will be Small Rubies and Sapphires if the dragon was Common, but some will be Large Rubies and Sapphires if the dragon was Rare or Super Rare.

What else can I get with the Trading Portal?
Good question, me. In addition to the predetermined Gemstones a dragon leaves behind when it passes through the portal into the Dragon Realm, some uncertain, random things are sometimes left behind. Namely, random chances at other Gems, and sometimes very rare ingredients used to craft the most powerful craftable dragons.

How does the Spell Shop work?
The Spell Shop contains a list of crafting recipies. Crafting recipies outline a set of ingredients required to create the pictured product. The better the product, the harder the recipe. The most powerful crafted dragons might require several Large Gemstones, which are found by trading rarer dragons.

But I don't want to trade my rare dragons! How else can I get Large Gemstones?
Thankfully, the Spell Shop also has recipes for combining multiple Small Gemstones into a Large Gemstone! That means you can trade several easy-to-breed common dragons for Small Gemstones, then combine those into the Large Gemstones needed for the most powerful dragons available in the Spell Shop.

I hope that addresses some of your questions. I'm sure you'll have more - please don't hesitate to ask. Download the update, check out the features, and let me know what you think! I hope you enjoy this massive update as much as we do.

Thanks for playing,

-Jake.

Edit: Dragons must be level 4+ to be traded. Rewards are based only on rarity, not level.

1. Get rid of trading times. Too much gold being used from speeding up breeding, hatching, then trading which is over priced, then crafting. Just get rid of trading times period

2. We need to be able to request blossoms and maps from the same person in one day

3. We need to be able to craft 10 small gems from one large gem

New update sucks. They decreased the crafting items from commons. It used to be 1 gem o each color the dragon was made of to just a random, chance box. That's lame even for TL.

What are requestable items and what are not? Everything in the spell shop has an ask button but as of now only lotus blossoms are able to be requested. Is this by design?

Yes. I'm not sure why they made it to pop up to a blank screen when tapping request. I was confused at first too :)

Update looks great tho. I can't wait to get these new dragons

Questions : Are these crafting dragons breed-able under any circumstances (can i breed a ruby if i use 2 ruby parents)
2. Do they breed as normal pure dragons (will the emerald dragon breed just like the forest dragon)

My biggest question is why have some of these new features (storage, Album, Trading Portal, Spell shop) and goals only in the original DragonStory and not just part of New Dawn? You're making it so people have to use both to get the new features, which is an interesting tactic, but I'm just curious about the rationale.

Gemstones from Trading are not requestable. Certain items like te Lotus Blossoms are. We included those buttons because there will be more such items in upcoming added crafting recipes.

it was done to force people to update the old DS because of the feeding cost. All light dragons feed cost was the same as all dragons feeding cost.

Geez, getting "used to be" stuff on the same day we released it.

The reason for that change is because Fire and Forest Dragons are part of the tutorial, their feeding amounts and Evolution times are super low, to help teach new players how the game works. Unfortunately, this would mean players could take advantage of this with Trading and produce gemstones super fast, which devalues the entire feature. So, we made some changes to how common dragons Trade. The only alternative was to make the recipe for gemstone dragons require way more gems, but that would punish players who didn't realize they could "farm" the basic dragons.

Personally, I think the best choice was super obvious. Open to feedback on the issue.

I'm really sorry but disappointed with new buildings. Waited all week and finally off we go. I have a full album all level 10, and now I'm expected to trade them to get the ones that missing. I can buy one more habitat to house what I need to breed, but then have to sell to house the next, because I can no longer store a habitat.

This is why I think selling eggs for gems is needed

On Android however, we just released New Dawn on December 1st.

Now we can trade dragons! Yay.. I finally found something to do with all the dragons i do not need!

But can we have an option to switch language back to english??:confused:

Your habitats are capped and all upgraded and you have no duplicates from breeding new dragons around?

We only had two options:

1) Don't release the dragons on Android until we release Crafting.

2) Release the dragons on Android for those who want them, and those who can't get them can craft them when we get the feature moved over.

Pros and Cons to each. Either "Why release them at all?" or "Why not just release them?"

We decided to make them available.

I know, but that's my best option now. I have all lvl 10s. I just think we should be able to trade eggs for half the amount of gems. I would never sell any of my dragons for a mist dragon to get to lvl 4 then trade it for a mostest box for a small gem. I'm going to wait for a rare or super rare

Haha...for me I choose (1) since the dragon can't breed with other dragons
(First, I think it can breed with my forest and make me get 21 hrs... but it can't and just for "decoration" , it's all OK now 3:p )

TL,

I was part of the 10% of users testing the buildings. I noticed that now you only receive 1 gem for every common dragon that you trade - when the rate before was 2 gems.

What is the logic behind this decision?

Thanks.

I just got sent 8 blossoms. Thank you dear neighbors ;D but here comes the tricky part: managing whom we ask blossoms to, and who ae send maps to. Yikes!
Also, really? Six hours for trading a dragon? Dayumn. That's a long time...two hours would be nicer.

Anyway: thanks for all the stuff and info, Jake! Pretty cool. Still some sharp edges to trim IMHO,but if ya'll heed to our feedback (well, the part that is doable) then we'll all be peachy. :p

So they can milk money from DROID users to use in the development of iOS features lol... its kinda funny if you ask me there just trying to confuse DROID users... I Can garentee there's going to be a lot of people trying to breed them and I know it's going to confuse the younger crowd to...

Can't you move one of your diamond hybrids and sell off that habitat, put the hybrid in its color habitat and 2 new dragons there?
I'm just asking...i dont think i know your island, or i can't remember which one it is. Lol.

Well the update is dank for those of us that have maxed out habs and are full. Since I have 4 diamonds, a couple angels and a couple infinity so i was gonna trade in a couple diamonds to make room but of course I can't trade diamonds.
Storage of dragons is paramount now that extra drags are in. If TL doesn't want to increase habs then at least give us the ability to store dragons away that we don't wish to display. I mean how hard is it to accomplish since you already have storage capacity for decor (which is useless) btw. I still have dragons in storage that I haven't put on the board so obviously there is the Bility to hold dragons. We have only been asking for it for 9+ months

Geez, getting "used to be" stuff on the same day we released it.


The reason for that change is because Fire and Forest Dragons are part of the tutorial, their feeding amounts and Evolution times are super low, to help teach new players how the game works. Unfortunately, this would mean players could take advantage of this with Trading and produce gemstones super fast, which devalues the entire feature. So, we made some changes to how common dragons Trade. The only alternative was to make the recipe for gemstone dragons require way more gems, but that would punish players who didn't realize they could "farm" the basic dragons.

Personally, I think the best choice was super obvious. Open to feedback on the issue.

Why not just make it impossible to trade the basic colored dragons? Fire, air, water, forest - unable to trade those, just like diamond. So we won't have to cross your fingers to get a rare or super rare in order to get gems. Lol. I donno, just my idea. Would that make it "too easy" too? And the trading time , six hours.,. What, a whole day just for one gem? x) gonna take forever, especially with the rate of 5 gold bars per hour! Oh well....

Yea i could do that too, but i like having 1 of each. Agh! Decisions, decisions....

But getting the commons is much easier than those absolutely awesome diamonds and infinities you have. ;) you can get the others in the snap of a finger :D

Your habitats are capped and all upgraded and you have no duplicates from breeding new dragons around?

i never bothered to breed any, what was the point? they cost money to breed and feed and would have taken up valuable space in habitats. i would have to sell them to make room for new dragons as they were released.

Not the basic dragon , but the common ones. I guess I should have said common hybrids instead, I apologize for the confusion. The common hybrids went from a basic gem made of their respective colors to a random chance box. It's disappointing to say the least.

Gotcha, those most common hybrids don't trade for the same mystery box as rarer dragons, but for a random gem of one of the colors attributed to the dragon - just in case that wasn't clear.

After testing, gems were just too easy to get to make the feature worthwhile for us, so we would either have to up the recipe or do what we did. It's a free to play game, so I hope you guys understand that business and game design have to make some compromises to support all that goes into the game. That's why we test with 10% first, so the majority of people get a feature that we can all support, without major adjustments.

Not at all, alpha - not much to add to that, we look at a lot of information and make decisions about how long it should take average players to craft a dragon, how many dragons they would have to trade, how much time is invested, how many play sessions per day to get enough gems the fastest, etc. What's "fair" is pretty subjective, but we made an informed data-backed decision about how this should be balanced to make it fun and engaging for players, and also worthwhile for our jobs :)

Really appreciate the feedback. I am listening, so please keep it coming :)

My biggest question is why have some of these new features (storage, Album, Trading Portal, Spell shop) and goals only in the original DragonStory and not just part of New Dawn? You're making it so people have to use both to get the new features, which is an interesting tactic, but I'm just curious about the rationale.
The regular Dragon game is the most current version of the game to be playing.


Thank you.

So has anyone gotten lotus blossoms from a request back yet? I sent out six requests as a tester but nothing back yet. Hope my bulk maps requests from yesterday isn't clogging me up.

I would say yes, if you requested maps yesterday or today, your nbrs will need to return these to you first before they will get your request for the lotus blossoms.
The maps and the constructible requests are together so you can only receive a total of 20 per day of maps and constructible items per day.

That's right, the 1.2.1 update on New Dawn is from November 8th...

On Android however, we just released New Dawn on December 1st.

Ok, but if all the work is really being done in the original Dragon Story (on iOS at least) It doesn't make much sense to use New Dawn on Android...Though it does fix my intermittent scrolling bug that happens on the regular DS. I will continue to wait patiently for the Android updates (yes, I'm at patiently waiting now, LOL) and use the new features on my iPhone.

I do have some suggestions for you that would greatly help both platforms in the game, I think anyway. Will post in a new thread a bit later.

I'm so unhappy they changed the rewards for the portal. :mad: It used to be if you traded say, a Life Dragon, you would get one small red gem and one small green gem. Now you just get one random small gem. That makes it sooooo much harder to get the new gemstone dragons. Even with the old way, it'd still take a minimum of 156 hours to get a Ruby, which I thought was insanely difficult enough. But now it's so much worse. There's no way of knowing how long it will take. I was so close to getting my ruby too, only 5 small red gems away... >_<

You can always try to let your nbrs know to DECLINE your map request. That way they may get your lotus request sooner, and also by not sending the map it will not take up one of your 20 max slots.

Feel sadden that not only didn't all platforms get the updates but had to come to the forum to find out that the new dragons are un breedable and then to also find out the not only was my time and money wasted to get nothing but it was spent going to another platform along with whole New Dawn which Kindle never got either. I just got pop up to leave feed back on Amazon too. Boy I have to really think hard on this one. Glad and hope you all are enjoying the updates it's a early Christmas for you all and I guess the rest of us get coal??? Thank you anyway for the little fun I was able to have with DS

As with most of these updates I will say it again - awesome idea but poorly executed. On a daily basis people complain about habitat cap and month after month it gets bypassed for something else. This time it's bypassed for something that again calls the habitat cap into question with players not wanting to sell their hard work in food/breeding to throw away lesser entities. I'm sure 90% of the issues could be resolved and ACTUALLY MAKE PLAYERS HAPPY by either lifting the habitat cap or providing a storage feature that would allow players to move around dragons so we have room for these additional features. This would also allow players to obtain all dragons in the game and display their favorites in-game while storing away lame dragons like the SnowPig, the TL dragon (oops meant clown dragon), and hiding holiday limited dragons unless it's that time of year. Come on TL have you really not thought of any of this?

From a business standpoint it makes no sense not to. I used to spend cash on the game weekly but haven't spent a cent for a couple months now becuase the habs are full. You want revenue? Give the players something we have asked for month after month to actually seek out speed breeding in your new feature-set

It's more sensitive than you might think. Namely, if there's no habitat cap, there's no control on the number of coins players have, and we support the free game by selling coins, amongst other things. Also, it becomes difficult to price foliage clearing and expanding - with an income control, we can price things out more intentionally.

That said, we recognize that it sucks, and that in general players wanting more dragons and not being able to house them is counter to the game's values, or at least my values for the game. We've never had a situation where players can't have every dragon (and we never will allow that situation), and we're exploring the best ways to increase habitat caps or relieve population while maintaining a thriving economy.

Stay tuned. Relief is coming - that's a promise.

PS you're a clown dragon.

The only people who have habitat problems are those who want 3,4 and 5 of the same dragons. There is more then enough room for one of each dragon and to have doubles of a few. If you want your island all pimped out with diamonds everywhere thats cool but thats a decision you choose to make. You are not required to have 8 Infinities,9 diamonds and 3 of each diamond hybrid, that is your choice. If it were impossible to maintain all the dragons in the allotted habitats i would get all the crying but that is not the case. There are consequences for your decisions deal with them.

Picture someone having 10 of each common dragon and then complaining about how they don't have room for the diamond they just bred. We would simply call a shrink for them and tell them to get rid of one of the commons. No one told you that you had to horde all those Firestorms thats the choice you made. It works both ways.

TL upgraded the original game, I think, to get everyone on the same feeding amounts for light dragons. eons ago, lights were feed alot less to evolve. Some players never updated their original game and the feeding amount never changed. TL wants them too...so this release is an incentive to get them to.

Just a suggestion, but I would be more inclined to use gold (and thus, to purchase gold) if the trading portal had a one gold per hour speed up rate, as it does with the breeding and food. I just couldn't ever see myself using or spending the 20+ gold to speed it up. Same goes for the crafting house, if it's high there as well (I haven't tried it yet).

One more thing, and sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but I don't have the attention span to go through 15 pages of threads - is the 6 hour time for the trading portal the same with all dragons, or does it change with each dragon like with the breeding times?

Thanks!

I notice today that there are two new dragons the ruby and emerald dragons. As I understand it they fan only be bought or crafted. I went to get the craft building and noticed that I song have the pleasure to buy it and start crafting. When will kindle fire have the ability

12-14-12, 07:46 PM
Hah! I realized that those 2 dragons are unbreedable and android users have no way to get them but spend golds to buy. So, can you TL stop showing the announcement about them in the game? The pop up always appear when I open my game, I feel uncomfortable. I was annoyed by pop up for 3 weeks: Super Dragon pop up, Snowman dragon pop up and now Ruby-Emerald

nylear13
12-14-12, 08:18 PM
Hi, is there any way to announce in-game that the gemstone dragons are non-breedable? Because reading the dragon info on the Ruby dragon from the market, its a little misleading and seems to imply that they can be bred. I understand this issue has been clearly explained here, but I'm sure there are players who do not come on the forums and just keep breeding firexfire in vain :/

It's six hours for any dragon, I think.

No. These features are, for the time being, only available for iOS. Let's hope they get things going for android sometime soon.

Yep, I also think it's too much gold to speed up, for six hours!! Yikes.

one more thing:
In the items' descritptions, there is an incorrection! You forgot to change the rarity of the dragons to obtain a certain gem. Small gems can't be gained through common dragons and large gems can't be gained through rares, but rares and super-rares respectively.

This game gets impossible.
I trade one fruitful and one firestorm dragons to see what happens... I had two.. I repeat TWO yellow stones.
Not only the time for trading is horribly long (5 hours / speed up for 30 gems !!), but the requested gems to get the ruby or emerald dragons are just too much !!! 2 large gems = 20 little ones. Plus the scrolls... A year will pass before I could have those dragons...
I must add that you must trade at least 4lvl and two colors dragons (it would be too easy !!).
It will get too much time, too much time... I give up.

It's more sensitive than you might think. Namely, if there's no habitat cap, there's no control on the number of coins players have, and we support the free game by selling coins, amongst other things. Also, it becomes difficult to price foliage clearing and expanding - with an income control, we can price things out more intentionally.

That said, we recognize that it sucks, and that in general players wanting more dragons and not being able to house them is counter to the game's values, or at least my values for the game. We've never had a situation where players can't have every dragon (and we never will allow that situation), and we're exploring the best ways to increase habitat caps or relieve population while maintaining a thriving economy.

Stay tuned. Relief is coming - that's a promise.

PS you're a clown dragon.

I have said anything for quite some time but I felt that i needed to respond to this. I understand the need for capping habitats to maintain the economy of the game. However, as you reach higher and higher levels, the economy is mute. When you reach higher levels, coins are not a restricting factor of the game anymore. I've sold countless super rare and diamond hybrids, but now I have to sell one of my diamonds to get a habitat! Im not thrilled about this. The max number of habitats should be higher at higher levels. I'm level 94 and never fall below 20 million coins. I don't need the habitats to earn coins, I need them to hold dragons!

Hi Jake.

I'm awere this is the wrong thread for my question but i'm hoping you read this and maybe get back. Since the storage and album update my game started to force close on me all the time. It has gotten to the point that i'm thinking about quitting the game but i really don't want to do that. Yesterday when the new features came it took me 58 times to just buy and place the trading building, the spell shop took 42 tries ! I then tried to trade a landworm but i have not manage this untill a coulpe of hours ago.

I have tried to remove and down load the game again but no improvment rather it got worse. The same thing happens in catle story but not that bad, i have no problem in monster story or jewlws or home story. Is it something with those games or is it something with my device? I'm on ipad 1.

The other problem I have is if you don't care to use the new "spell crafting" or "trading post" you can't sell them or get rid of them. Now they are just in the way. What a bad decision on TL's part. Keep things simple and people will be happy!

That's you opinion. I , for one, find it a fun addition to the game. If you didn't want them, why build them? Just to see what it's like? Anyway, just let them sit there as decor. And if they bother you so much, stop playing alltogether. :p

I have deleted Dragon Story. It's fun but like another poster mentioned, as an android user, the updates and announcements made me feel uncomfortable and a bit jealous. Plus I recently came to terms with the fact that I will never be able to play Monster Story. I have tried everything I been told on the forum and in my complaint emails. It been over a month and nothing changed. I have gotten tired of sending help emails.....i have given up on Monster and Dragon Story.

i disagree. i really like the update and it gives me something to do with all the rares and super rares i get instead of just selling them for a measly 100 coins. i like that we can craft new decor and the caretaker's cabin which costs 80 gold if you buy it in the market and craft new dragons.

i have a suggestion for Jake - i would love if at some point we could craft mystic maps. i'm lucky if i get 10 a day and i'm at the point where i need 40 to expand. granted this should be only for us higher level players and not beginners.

12-15-12, 09:29 AM
I really like the update! I don't spend gold often, and I don't really think its necessary, I breed as often as I can to try and pick up the super rares and such and now I have a useful way to be rid of duplicates of the more common dragons. Additionally, it gives us the opportunity to do something besides staring at our breeding den and wish it would go faster. The disappointment of seeing the short breeding times is over! Now I see it as an opportunity to get gems for the neat side quests. Honestly, the food required to get a dragon to level 4 to evolve isn't that much, so what's the clamor for? It's a NEW feature for crying out loud. I'm not trying for a "game first" so I guess that's why I'm not that upset about this.
I agree with the need for additional dens for those that are really high level, and the storage feature would be fantastic for helping us to design our islands, but really people...relax and give this a chance

Geez, getting "used to be" stuff on the same day we released it.

The reason for that change is because Fire and Forest Dragons are part of the tutorial, their feeding amounts and Evolution times are super low, to help teach new players how the game works. Unfortunately, this would mean players could take advantage of this with Trading and produce gemstones super fast, which devalues the entire feature. So, we made some changes to how common dragons Trade. The only alternative was to make the recipe for gemstone dragons require way more gems, but that would punish players who didn't realize they could "farm" the basic dragons.

Personally, I think the best choice was super obvious. Open to feedback on the issue.

But either way it takes 6 hours to trade. Someone could easily get a life dragon.

I love the new update. I don't mind trading in some dragons I'd sold off for pennies and/or have been easy for me to breed again. I'm just not sure ill be easy to let go of my super rare dragons that were a pit to breed. Ill see, because the new items make for a new facet to the game and it could persuade me to trade and just have fun breeding the dragons again.

I just wish things weren't so expensive, but alas, if I found time to collect coins more it would be easy.

I do feel bad for android, because until I got on iOS too, I'd also feel like we were left out. Don't stop playing though, good times come to those who wait. Now my luck would be perfect if I could get a diamond!

I absolutely love this new update. One more reason I love this game. Just wondering though, I click on the information tab to see about earning things like a small green/yellow/red/blue gem, and it says simply by trading a common dragon with that gem in it. However, when I try to trade a common it doesn't show a small gem as an option. Not a major disappointment but I was really hoping I could let go of some fruitfuls instead of a fairy or parakeet lol

I think this is a really interesting (and potentially useful!) concept... but after looking at everything, I feel that this feature was geared more towards the players who are at levels 50+ and/or who have expanded quite a bit and have numerous duplicates of Dragons and are looking for a way to expand their collection while being able to play something of a minigame.

That said, I'm level 28 and don't really have a 'use' or 'need' for it at the moment as I'm still struggling with expansion, clearing obstacles, and simply breeding some of the basic hybrids.

12-15-12, 05:06 PM
So just for clarification:
(Tell me if any of these are wrong)
1. You can't trade pure dragons such as fire, air, forest, and water.
2. You get LARGE STONE for trading SUPER-RARES, but small stone for trading commons and RARES.
3. You can't trade diamond or inifinity dragons.
4. Can you trade diamond hybrids such as crusader, quetzal, gold, mercury, anubis?
5. All dragons must be level 4 or above in order to be tradable
6. All dragons are traded for 6 hours.

12-15-12, 05:07 PM

I believe 12 hours for ruby and 8 hours for emerald. You can see the time at the spell shop.

I don't think you get small gems for commons, just mystery box stuff. I think this was changed before TL release it to us. Its written I believe on page 9 Item #86 or something like that.

A lot of people are having to get rid of Diamond Hybrids we need the space. I was going to sell a pure Diamond on friday for 100 coins.

I will never, no way under the sun sell my diamond dragons for rare dragons thats 1) unbreedable 2) That eats the most food, 3)Low coin earnings 4)Not as cute as my diamond. I refuse!!!!!:mad:

Well that would be kinda useless and disappointing (for me; since i already have them).

Ya me too. Hopefully I'm wrong. It would be cool if it were a new nether portal. An all black nether portal or orange

Hmm, I'd rather ot be something different. The nether portal is cool as it is, I don't think switching color scheme would be anything revolutionary. Nope, I think they have something else that's pretty cool in stock for us ;D

How about summoning a dragon that was cast into the nether region through the portal? Now that is maximizing the useless portal decoration lol

Wait! That's it! The nether dust will be used to create a dragon from the Other World- as described in the nether portal description

Make commons give something useful, and I'll be happy. A twentieth of a gemstone isn't really a stretch for them to give.

I'm not sure why I don't have the option to purchase these new buildings? No update is available to me, but the gem dragons are shown as available... I must have bred a couple of fire dragons for hours last night trying to get a ruby, obviously without success. How do I get the crafting shop etc?

It's not available on kindle or android. You can only buy the dragons for gold

Have you read the entire thread? Also are you on android or iOS? If you play Android you don't have the option atm. iOS you need to play the Original DS and update to 1.2.1

I realise now this is due to me being an android user. Any idea when this update will be released for us? I love the ruby dragon, and I'm being teased that it's available, when really... you cannot breed it. Thank you, and look forward to the update!

Just a further thought... it would be helpful to have some identification symbol, or dragon info that tells us if dragons can only be crafted (or traded), and not bred. Especially for android users. Might save folk time and frustration trying to breed something they can't.

That's what I was thinking. A lot of android users are going to be left in the dark and not know how to get the gem dragons

Not know that they CAN'T get them, for now. A lot of people are confused! TL needs to create a pop-up to warn the android users, or at least add an information SOMEHERE.

Oh another question

Is the trading time related to how long we bread a dragon or is it fixed for all

By the way aweosome update

However can't help feeling cheated when I saw caretaker cottage in the spell shop after I bought it with 80 gems


Yes!! Me too !! I paid 80 gold for that caretaker cottage. I want them back now. Please credit my account :)

me too... Very unfair that I paid 80g for caretaker cottage. That's a lesson learned. Never pay gold for deco because they will make it craftable

I definitely agree. They also could have openly stated somewhere in the first post of this thread when this thread was created and beta went underway that only 10% of iOS users were given this feature to beta test instead of letting everyone get confused and frustrated... but they didn't.

Extra communication could definitely spare more hurt feelings and further confusion, but that's just my two cents.

I also agree. It's not like most people visit these forums anyway. A lot of Android users probably have no idea what's going on.
