It's not really cheating, but it's so handy: As soon as an egg hatches, change its name to whatever type it is. That way, all you have to do is tap on the habitat to see all the types living there listed across the bottom, instead of having to tap on each face to see what it is. Makes it so much faster and easier when taking a headcount/typecount, especially if you're like me and constantly forget what you have running around. :D

Ok, good for newbies. But IOS has the album which shows all our dragons.

With time, you'll recognize your dragons, but I agree with kwhales, it's great for new players :)

Well I'm still new-ish lol :P and I also like to know who's in which habitat and where, not just see a list. I'm kinda obsessive about keeping closer track I guess. :D

That's fine. Whatever works best for you. Everyone has there one little tidbits that help them. I use to keep,all my babies that I wanted to trade in what I called daycare-habitats off to one end of my island so I didn't accident sell or trade the wrong ones.

The title is so misleading... I thought you found out how to cancel a breed. :p

Yeah, but it got you here. So any helpful hints for a semi newbie?

I have currently changed the title since cheats/hacks are not allowed on the forum. This will prevent any confusion.

Haha nope, but I am quickly learning the art of being patient playing these games... kinda anyway... I've put BS/RS appliances in storage after accidentally cooking the wrong thing, but that's not an option here. There are ways to make the breeding go faster though, my favorite is taking naps. ;)

I'll put it this way: I'm new enough that I just found this out today: the Easter dragon I bred a few days ago is something special. No clue until I saw a 12 page thread about it. >.<

Sorry Kooky, and thanks. :)

Android doesn't have an album. I do this too,& number them so I have small.ones to breed. I get nothing with 2 epic dragons. It makes it easier to keep track of who to spend food on

I find it easier to use excel/notepad/word to list out the dragons I have, rather than clicking on habitats repeatedly. That said, after playing for a while, you sort of know what you have and what you don't.

I've been doing that since August 2012.

But there's an 8-character limit.

Firestorm is only Firestor.

Laserlight is only Laserlig.

Etc.

I had been doing this as well, but I noticed a couple of days ago that the rename button is no longer there.

Click the little pencil next to the actual name.

I don't have that problem since son many dragons keep alluding me I have only one type of dragon on each of my habitats but that might change since I only have like 10 more to go before the cap.

Definitely supposed to be "so" not "son"

Meh. Doesn't take long to recognize dragon types on sight. Personally, I can't stand duplicate names so I take the time to give each dragon a unique name. I've had up to 125 dragons at a time (number keeps dropping whenever I build a diamond habitat), and keep a roster - including those I've traded.
One exception to this would be my Fire drones - usually not around for long and are instantly renamed "drone."
If your temple and/portal have full function (mine no longer do), they will give you a complete list of your dragons, including those who are not yet eligible for breeding or trading, so no need to micro-manage with a roster like I do.

How do you beat a level 17 when the highest of any level dragon I have is 10???? How does one even acquire a level 17 dragon?

I've been putting breeding time followed by type of dragon that helps me when choosing which dragon to evolve. :o

straycatcafe: you're in the wrong thread. The most simple answer is that you can beat a lvl 20 with a lvl 1 dragon. And you can't have any dragon above lvl 10. Only the dragons in the arena are above that level.

Here you can find some helpfull tips on batteling:
