Wow. Sorry to say but this looks an impossible task with the numbers required to finish this one. The number of parts/hatchings required are way too high and it costs far too much gold to get both. I think i'll pass on this one.

260 pieces. That is what I have Been asked to collect in 10 days.

In the last summoning I had to collect 105 and I hardly could do it. How is it supposed that I Will get 180 pieces of harvesting, 50 hatches and 30 quests in ten days?


If they dont want we do it, they should not offer the summoning

Lol TL is going crazy.. How should we get 260 parts in 10 days? With the drop rates last time i was only able to collect 70 parts in the last summoning.. I think i wont try very hard for this because its impossible ^^

I guess it depends a lot on the drop rates. I just got 2 gifts for selling an egg off the nest..

I had eggs on the nest and received 2 and 3 respectfully

I just harvested the 5 hour/800 food crop and received 1 from each.

Quest uses Forest dragon, 5 hours to complete

Got my first 24 harvest food, from the scalpears (4 food from each farm), I planted the food in advance and collected them as soon as the summoning starts.

If this runs like previous ones..... it is such a joke. The engineers claimed there was nothing wrong with the last one even though people on this forum complained for six days about it.

Can you say money grab??? I am not buying any gold for this task. thanks but no thanks

5706 gold to complete. Wow.

12-20-13, 10:49 AM
I received 4 candy canes from harvesting 1 crop of Scalypear and only 1 candy cane from a Diamondate. The candy canes is possible if you plant Scalypears, the Quest using a Forest dragon only is only 5 hours long very doable, but the hatching requirements is ridiculous, I haven't hatched anything yet so it might give multiple items depending on length.

Mine says 5667 to complete but I have the same targetsas shown in the pic above. NOt that I have 5000 gold, nor would I spend 5000 gold either!

It's never the same for all players. Maybe some of your required items costs less? But yeah, not that it makes a much difference if you want to complete it right away lol.

Well the only thing this changes for me is that I hatched a baby forest dragon to send on the quests, I was planting 20 hour crops on half and rushrooms on half anyway to feeding all those hungry dragons. I doubt I will make it, but I didn't think I would beat the tourney this time either and I got earlier than the last one.

I am noticing that this started 11 hours ago however the summoning icon just showed up on my device. Interestedly I harvested six diamond dates 6 hours ago and I did not get any parts for that. So this again is a classic example where we get the icon and the first 12 hours of the game have passed and we are not getting drops. TL can be so LAME.

I planted 6 scalypears about 4-5 days ago, and saved them for collection when the summoning starts, got 24 in total, 4 from each farm.

It seems that there is no difference between the pears and dates. 5 hours x 4 = 20

Same here. I knew this was going to start soon and I've been watching for the update, saw it this morning and the quest was not there until just now. I've been playing every hour because of the tournament, thanks for shorting us 12 hrs, TL! And, wow, some high numbers there. Blah

All my dragons are fed to level 4 or below, with the exception of clockwork at level 7, my island contains only young dragons, the summoning is like 2 times a month, so I can keep my farm with food, not in a rush for food here.

12-20-13, 11:15 AM
I would like to give TL a chance to show that they fixed the problems in past summonings. They have tried fixes - perhaps the repairs have worked! I will give this a try.... :)

I do find it a bit annoying that "10 days" really only means 9 days 13 hours - for my summoning, as with other's, also only appeared 11 hours into a 10 day period......

After being having Steampunk more or less stolen from me in last ill functioning Summoning i've planned to not bother much with next one anyway, instead see how it goes and watch player feedback, and maybe join a later one instead. There's massproduction of new dragons going on constantly so missing out on these two (which i do find quite funny though) won't matter much, there'll be new ones soon incoming!

Besides, i respect my loved ones too much to be babysitting DS over christmas, i just wonder how many families that will roll eyes or grumble when their *insert any type of family member here* constantly disappears off into dragon land! I have 2 sisters that probably would throw my iPad out rofl! :D

I do like the idea, the concept, of this type of event, so it'll be interesting reading on forum about this It, to see if TL learnt something from last one! And if it's possible to finish it without buying gold ofc! ;)

People posted before I could post my comment lol, but yeah that's a change in multiple drop rates for hatching, most i've received was 2 from the previous summoning. Your correct on the harvesting, but I think I seen someone that didn't get a candy cane from the dates.

12-20-13, 11:26 AM
But with gold, two dragons which give a very small quantity of money (both of them) are much more expensive than a diamond... (More than 5000 gold, ridiculous)


I really expect they give mor? than a piece for each harvesting

12-20-13, 11:29 AM
Here the summoning icon has just popped up about 1/2 hour ago. Starting time is 9 days and 13 hrs.
Compared to other summonings in the past the requirements seem ridiculous.

My harvesting so far:

6x Rushrooms (300 food / 1hr) granted 1 candy
6x Upgrapes (100 food / 10 min) granted no candy
makes 1 candy for me so far.

So this looks like Scalypears is again the way to go.

Good luck to you all!

Would anyone mind sharing what their breeding strategy is during a summoning? Do you still try to breed dragons you really want or do you change to a combination that gives reasonable breeding/hatching times? I know I got caught with a Virtue and also Sunrise a couple of times in the last summoning.

[S8] Elsa
12-20-13, 11:36 AM
The Caretakers have been feeding the drop rates their wheaties and drop rates are now better than ever before! You need to collect more parts, but you also have much, much better chances.

12-20-13, 11:37 AM
It seems that getting the candy canes is doable ....if you plant 6 x 20 hour crops a day collect 24 canes a day x 9 days left = 216 canes, I need 180 canes

Do you have one nest or multiple nests and lots of coins? I have 3 nests and buy light dragon to fill the nests ... I usually stick to breeding what I want to go for.

12-20-13, 11:44 AM
I collected my diamond dates just now and got 6 total, one from each farm. Maybe we don't have to plant only scalypears to finish the summoning? Because I really need food to feed my dragons right now. Hatched a tinsel for 2 gifts and a super for 3 gifts BTW.

Yes.. There seems to be no difference between dates or pears. They have the same drop rate.

Has anyone planted an 8 hour crop? ... What is the drop rate like for those?

I have 2 nests and hover around 10mill coins so that's definitely an option. I did that twice in the last hours of the last summoning, didn't think about it as a general strategy. I shall definitely consider it, thanks!

I buy water dragons to fill my nests, they are cheaper than light eggs and in the past the drop rates were better for 12 hours than 9 hours in my experience.

Well my game icon changed as well and I lost a post. I have now harvested 12 crops of diamonds and I got 6 candies. So if I do 24 crops a day I am on average to only get 12 candies a day at 9 1/2 days I don't see me getting anywhere near 180 candies that I need for this summoning.

Mine got very confused earlier during a battle - lots of lagging, didn't register any effect for a strike, then when I eventually lost and tried to heal the dragon it told me it didn't need healing, then when I went back to the habitat, the dragon was exhausted and I could heal it that way.

Sooooo... what should I breed? I need 50 gifts total/9 days remaining = you need 5 gifts a day. 2 hr egg didn't give any gifts, 10 hr only gives 2 gifts (according to people).... is there anything under 10 hours that will even give boxes??

Sooooo... what should I breed? I need 50 gifts total/9 days remaining = you need 5 gifts a day. 2 hr egg didn't give any gifts, 10 hr only gives 2 gifts (according to people).... is there anything under 10 hours that will even give boxes??

I bought 2 air dragons and got a gift from 1 of them

I got two gifts from hatching a Coral dragon (10 hours)

I got the same thing: 2 gifts for my 10 hr honeybee. So, if i can keep my 2nd nest full with Waters the whole I should be able to average 6 gifts per day for 9 days which will be enough. It does look like TL actually did try to fix the issues with the prior summoning.

See...if we could get random drops of each from collecting coins from our habs...that would actually be way more doable but still not a guarantee....and yes that is a suggestion haha. I probably want this one the MOST out of any of the summoning. But truly I wish we ALL had both options, summoning and breeding because neither are a for sure guarantee and both are challenging.

50 Hatches in 10 days.

How is this achievable?

Stop spamming the game with rubbish quests, it's already plenty frustrating enough.
It's achievable because for longer breed times you get multiple gifts..... Do you have only 1 nest or multiple nests, if you have multiple nests buy eggs with coins to keep your nests full

Exactly! That's where I got my numbers earlier. If proportionally longer hatch times give proportionally larger drops then the numbers we're seeing so far help make this do-able, at least in theory. But only if you have 2 nests. The trick is to keep your nests as full as possible. Right now, I'm hatching a 24 hr Sunrise and I've got a 15 hr Laserlight in the breeding den. So I bought a 12 hr Water to put on my 2nd nest. By this time tomorrow I will hopefully have gotten 2 gifts from the water, 4 gifts from the Sunrise, plus whatever I get from the Laserlight. If I can even come close to keeping that up, then the hatching part should go just fine.

Yeah, things can obviously go very wrong. But I'm not going to begin complaining until that happens.

While there are more parts required, the drop rates are higher than ever before!

Thanks so much for working in this game feature. I'm okay with the trade off as odds are much improved with the better drop rates. Game time dedication will be needed, but since there's a tourney players are probably on more frequently anyway.

Good luck to everyone!

My game just got extremely laggy. I have tried turning my device, an ipad, off and back on again but it did not help. Ever since this latest release, it seems to take awhile for the program to catch up to what I've done. Am I alone, or are others experiencing same with this release?

The only lag I've noticed is on article isle. When I harvest the amount of food doesn't increase unless I log out and back into the game. Also the game seems to restart and not run in the background as effectively as it used to. I can look at my photo folder (not venture onto the internet) come back to the game and see the flash screen and the game is restarting.

Hadn't really complained much or at least not loudly as I'm impressed overall that so much has been released and I've only had minimal or at least tolerable issues. ;)

Yeah I realized after my initial post that if you get multiple gifts, or you buy rubbish low incubation dragons, then its possible.

I have 2 nests and my 7 millionth Mist dragon in the oven.

Not sure whether to waste 10 days just to come close to another reward, Ill see what I get from these 3.

What is the best egg people are buying - water, fire, or just breed normally and get the multiple gifts?

12-20-13, 07:57 PM
Would TL like to explain how we missed out on 12 hours? It is NOT 10 days. It's 9 1/2.

It's because whenever TL has a timer for anything, like a summoning or tournament, they round up to the next number of days. So even if it's 9 days 5 minutes, it will say 10 days until it hits 8 days 23 hours 59 minutes. It's misleading, but that's the way it always is, not just for this event.

This Summoning is very doable, drops for harvest have increased. You can chose four, 5 hr harvest a day or one, 20 hour each day and still have a good chance to get all or most of your drops.

The Water dragon was best for me, 4-5 drops each hatching. I tried fire, forest and air and got zero. Light yielded 4 but I felt was too costly if water yields the same or better result.

You can breed normally and just keep your nests filled with water, that way your nests are never empty and you'll have a good chance for drops.

1 candy for each Diamond date so far

0 candies for beets or Rushrooms so far.
Scaleypears planted, TBA

Quest has given 1 ornament each time so far. I speeded up w gold to see if that mattered, still only got one.

I finished my gifts on the first day, trying for gingerbread.(Got it!) I got gifts for every hatched egg except fire, even multiple 3 hour fails. Didn't matter if I sold or placed in nest once hatched.
I got 9 gifts for a crusader fail.
At this rate (knock on wood) I hope to finish within the time slotted this time, if I don't have any new problems.

Got enough fails to get 50 presents in the summoning (9 from crusader), but they were all low hour. Most were Landworm, fuzzy, Love or Life with a few fire thrown in. Only fire gave no gifts. Even 3 hour fails gave me 1 gift, and 5 hour fails gave me 2-3 each. Much better consistency than last time.

If time allows you can plant 4 dates in a day so it doesn't matter which crop you plant, if you want lots of food for feeding dragons dates is the way to go.... If you can't plant crops during the day probably the 20 hour crop is best

Would anyone mind sharing what their breeding strategy is during a summoning? Do you still try to breed dragons you really want or do you change to a combination that gives reasonable breeding/hatching times? I know I got caught with a Virtue and also Sunrise a couple of times in the last summoning.

I don't change my breeding targets. Longer breeding times results in more items being dropped. What empty nests I have I stock with bought eggs (water, light or air). I've never had problems getting close to the targets

JustKay
12-21-13, 10:22 PM
The Caretakers have been feeding the drop rates their wheaties and drop rates are now better than ever before! You need to collect more parts, but you also have much, much better chances.

Thanks, PonyRoar. It's still early days, but I think this is a summoning that everyone can enjoy! Even though there's more items to collect, it's more fun being able to watch your tally go up a healthy amount day by day :)

I planted 8 hrs on 2 farms and got 2 candy canes. Diamondates give 1 candy cane for sure. I don't know if 8 hrs always give 2 candy canes. Anyone can confirm this?

5 hrs is not too long for me, but in overnight I waste time like 3 hrs or so to harvest it in the morning, but I'll give it try and plant 1 hrs and I'll see how much do I get.

After a slow start with harvesting, everything is providing a part for me. I was doing really good 3 days in on the last one before TL changes the drop rates and everything went to hell. Let's see if the drop rates stay good all the way through and lets see if they end the game earlier again.

For the quests the decoration is a guaranteed drop, are you not able to do 4 quests a day? You seem to be only sending 2 quests on average a day. You have 23 more to get in 6 and half days, to do that you will need to send 4 a day.

If you can keep the rate going you should finish or be very close to it... 6 and half days to go. (3 full days gone)

The quests is the one that needs a work

12-23-13, 03:41 PM
Well, I think the summoning should serve the purpose of keeping players playing. TL is trying to monetise something that isn't their core money spinner. Back before Battle Arena and summoning, you could log into DS once a day (or maybe twice), pop a fresh egg on the nest and then forget it until your next visit. There was no real motivation to level up your dragons so even planting farms was low priority. Fewer active logons = fewer chances to sell gold (& fewer gold traps), and it becomes quite easy for people to disconnect altogether. I remember a whole host of once regular neighbours giving up. Now with Battle Arena & Summoning I log on at least once an hour! (except when I'm sleeping)

Just to add to this, I have an Android account which doesn't have summoning & battle arena, and I just login and play twice a day. Install apps for gold, gift gold, breed and hatch eggs. I have a mountain of food, and not a dragon above level 4. Never hit a gold trap and now I have enough gold for an infinity. Pretty boring really but with persistence I have bred a diamond there too, and actually have more diamond hybrids than in my main account! Sometimes it's nice not having distractions :)

Agreed!! I think it's good that there is a variety of different features for active/very active players. If someone feels that they only have time for the basic breeding that's fine too.

Sorry if my post was confusing, but I was actually commenting on how this Xmas Summoning is how I've always felt it should be. It's an event that is well defined and attainable (with dedicated effort) with the main purpose of keeping players coming back with stuff to do in game. It's isn't as much about trying to get us to spend gold. I was using the Android comparison to say how boring it used to be. That said, the jury is still out since we still have more than half the time to go :)

Thanks amber. I just transfered to IOS the other night. i then threw atlantis (if i am not mistaken) for a gemstone quest as i dont know about summoning things.

ahm is there any other way to get quest gifts for summoning other than sending off the forest dragon. I kept getting 1 gift everytime it finishes.

No, there is no other way and the idea is everyone gets one gift. You need to send it 3 times a day for 10 days to complete the summoning.

I would suggest you plant 5 hour food or greater...... the drop rates are :- 0-1 for 1 hour, 1 per farm for 5 hour, 1-2 per farm 8 hour, 4 per farm for 20 hour.... When I've planted rush rooms to fill in time I generally get 0, maybe 1, the odds are not that great.

I plant 5 hour during the day and 8 hour over night

How many nests do you have? If I were you I would buy air, water eggs to put in empty nests

For the quests if you send 4 a day in 5.5 days you will get another 21 decorations, you will probably be about 5 short.

With work I would say that you could come very close to getting both dragons...... Good luck!!

I'm very happy that the summoning this time around seems to have been implemented correctly. By my calculations I should be able to finish this one in time, the only thing I might have to spend some gold on is the quest part which has only yielded me 1 piece each time so far. Either way, I'm glad TL listened to us and made the summoning doable.:)

This may be the first Summoning where I get enough items. So, firstly thanks TL and forum posters for making that possible -_-
Can someone explain or link how it works - ;)
i.e. if I get all 260 items do i choose one between the 2 dragons or what?
I just want to be ready because I think its going to be close and from my experience on tournaments knowing what you want to do in advance of it expiring is crucial.

I think you get the first dragon if you hit the smaller number and the second additionally if you get everything. I transferred to iOS in the middle of the last summoning, so this is my first time around too. Initially I was horrified at the high requirements but it looks like I'll naturally get everything but the ornaments without speeding.

doop01
12-25-13, 06:43 PM
There are two different numbers of items required. When you reach the lower number you will automatically be awarded the first egg. Then when collection of all items is complete you will get the second one. It is automatic when you reach the required number of items for each dragon. :)

For those who need gifts to complete this, use air. Every two hrs you get one gift. So in twelve, you get 6 gifts not 4 as you would if you used water.

I even got a drop on a 3 hour dragon hatching. As long as the drops are consistent this is doable for both dragons. It is when they make changes in the middle of the summoning and the drop rate changes that customers tend to have a problem.
