New mining dragon. Only got 31 days to get it. Not sure if it is possible when I only evolve at levels 6 and 9

Edit(KP) 36 Hours



The mine is only offered to IOS(apple) devices.

The mine unlocks at level 45.

Assuming you have not saved your bombs, don't speed evolve and evolve around the clock, and get at least one amber per visit, that will total 186 amber pieces. I hope they have a double amber weekend like they did with ingots.

Hmmm...it's really not fair to put such a short time on it when some people (like me) do not evolve from 3 to 4. I am not sure how it's going to be possible for me, because my evolutions will require so much food that it just won't be possible to evolve that much. And I was not one of the people who got a 7th farm either, so I'm constrained there also. Further, I had to use every possible bomb to get Platinum (managed to get 199 ingots, so only had to spend 4 gold to get the last one), so I have none saved up. So for me this is going to be a real challenge.

It would definitely be easier with a 7th farm, although I have just looked at my dragons and most are at level 7 if not at Epic and all bar 4 will need 62,500 to get from 9-10. I am a little demoralised.

I personally got two Platinum dragons and had to use a last small push to get the second. So far I have 18 or so amber parts from a couple bombs I saved up the last two days.

What a pretty dragon!
I have lots of Love and Winter fails from speed breeding for the Egyptian Adventure so now I'm in cleanup mode. Evolving to level 4 and trading them off. Evolution Temple hasn't been idle since the start of the event!

I guess not everyone plays the same. It's working out well for me though.

How many bombs do you get for an evolution? Like if you evolve a dragon that took 5 hours do u get 5 bombs?

Lesimony
03-25-14, 07:36 PM
It's 1 bomb per 4 hours of evolution time.

Now I'm really glad I stockpiled the max of 25 bombs. Got 39 amber pieces from them.

I didn't spare bombs, because I needed the extra food we can obtain from mining.
I have 14 ingot in my storage, totally useless. Really unwise of me.
In 31 days I need to get 6,45 /day amber eggs. Today I got my first 7 pieces and I have my paladin (29 hours) in the evolution temple.
I'll expedite the evolution in the last hours. Hope I'll get at least 7 bombs from it.

Me too, I was excited about trying for a new dragon then, saw the timer and it took all the fun out of it. I too have mostly level 7/epic dragons and they require huge numbers of food as you've quoted above, I used to like only evolving twice but now it's a real problem, why can't bomb drop from hatching instead? that would be fair for everyone. I really liked this feature but now it makes me not want to play

You can only have a max of 25 each. Other than that it is working good for me so far.

Your calculation is ok, except that it is pretty easy to get 2 pieces with every bombs (372 total). I got 55 pieces from 25 bombs. Just mine wisely and you almost get at least 2 pieces, so it is pretty easy to get this dragon for everyone.

I hear you. I have a lot of dragons at 7-8 that take TONS of food. I will have to hope that I hatch a lot of new dragons that I can feed to level 7. However I'm usually not very lucky at breeding. It took more tries than I can even count (even with some speed breeding) to get Carnival and Celtic recently, which are only supposed to be "rare." :(

You can't get bombs or dynamite from harvesting food (in the World Event you could get Egyptian Coins from harvesting but that's a different challenge). You will get dynamite from breeding new dragons (1 dynamite for each four hours of breeding time) and you get bombs from evolving dragons (again, 1 bomb for each four hours of evolution time).

Huh? 1 bomb for each hour of evolution time? That must be incorrect, i've never gotten more than a handful bombs from whatever i've evolved...hmm i'm sure i'd remember getting 15 bombs from the Laserlights i evolved to trade (don't ask me why lol)....or is something changed now...i am confoosed.....:confused:

I was wondering that too, but didn't try water dragon yet. You won't get any with fire or forest. I'll try it with water when I have a free evolution temple. Water dragons are easy to get and require minimal food, so if their evolution drops bombs then that would be really helpful.

If you make sure you always have a dragon evolving you will get 6 bombs a day. 31 days x 6 = 180 bombs.

just keep buying water and then evolve them to lvl 4 and then sell them. Its food requirements are pretty low - scalypears can more than cover the cost.

Some of us don't evolve at level 4 we would have to keep feeding until level 6 that's why it's easier for some than others
Actually Have just checked the feeding costs to see what I would need to evolve at level 6, I would need 1830 , I could get this from 3 farms if using scalypears or even quicker with diamondates. Has anybody evolved a water dragon to see if it drops bombs?

Someone said before that they got a bomb from an air dragon which is only 2 hour evolve time so I would think that a water dragon would drop bombs

If you make sure you always have a dragon evolving you will get 6 bombs a day. 31 days x 6 = 180 bombs.

And very often you get 2 or even 3 hits per bomb used if lucky and keeping a cool head lol...so if evolving 24/7 it definetly should be possible - but don't you dare miss out on planning your evolutions - make sure to set alarm in the middle of night if necessary to switch dragons in evolution temple, and make sure boss at work doesn't see you drop tools and run off to DS to put a new dragon in there, *sigh*...well, can always buy your way to success ofc...

When the mining thing was first launched i was surprised that it was nothing but good for the players lucky enough to get it - you got rewarded for playing a lot, it was simply too nice sort of....well it's fixed now, goldtrapping implemented - check! But that's ok ofc, it is a business after all and without satisfied players paying up there'd be no game att all!

Ah well, if i can't get Amber dragon from playing the way i do - i check in on DS far more than i think i should lol - then i can do without it for sure, i cannot keep up with feeding what dragons i got already anyway! And we're constantly flooded with new dragons so if i miss out on a bunch, oh well...:D

22 bombs, so that's from 88 hours of evolving? Well, this mining goal is definetly piece of cake if using gold to speed up things...myself i'm at 60 pieces after constantly evolving since start - i had a couple bombs saved up from before it started though - and it'll be intersting seeing how it goes, i think i'll be fine without using gold as long as i plan stuff!

Yeah, its easy for those who can evolve at lvl 4. I cannot . I must feed my dragons to lvl 6 then i can evolve them. And i have only 50 pieces so far. I worked pretty hard for them cuz i need to evolve at least a 20+ hrs dragon/ day to get 6 pieces. This mine stuff wasnt think very fair for all players. But... We need to adapt it:)

I don't speed evolve, it's a waste of gold. I evolved my Egyptian type dragons and my carnival dragon. As soon as one is finished evolving I just put another one. Plus, I've been trying to get the Mardi Gras dragon, but keep getting poison dragons as fails. I'll evolve them from level 6 to 7 before trading them, so I get bombs from that too. Like you, I'd like to show that the game can still be played and enjoyed without having to buy and spend gold.

Yes, ure able to do it so fast because u can evolve at lvl 4. It will be a very big waste of food for me to feed all my fails to lvl 6 only to get bombs from them. Its not the same situation.

I'd just like to clarify, I can't evolve from level 3 to 4. That's something I'm actually glad about. I feed my dragons from level 1 to 6 then evolve them. I put Mummy dragon to evolve on Tuesday, Cleopatra on Wednesday, sphinx on Thursday and Carnival on Friday. Those 4 days make up the 88 hours of evolution time I needed. I did not speed evolve, nor did any thing that one could say I had an unfair advantage over any other player. I just put in the time and effort to earn the 97 amber pieces I have now.

So, if you guys want to trade a dragon away you just feed it til lvl 4 and then put it in Trading Portal? Not if non-iOS that is...

Yep, i feed it till 4 then i trade it. But often i sell it directly from the nest because i dont want to waste my food for useless gems. My inv its full with gems and no purpose for them. And i think ill need the whole month to get this Amber. As I said - i put one 20 hrs dragon/ day and i have 50 pieces. Not good but not bad either. Yes, ill need some patience. Anyway i dont like the mine. I find it more annoying than arena.

Totally agree. Mining is boring and I have run out of dragons to evolve to level 7 so they now all need to evolve to 10. This is going to be really hard for me. Very fed up.

Hi belbar no need to feed ur own dragons just feed the fails u got from breeding my limit is till 15 hrs I evolve my mist fail and feed him to come on 4 and it gave me 4 bombs so GUYS USE UR BREEDING FAILS TO GET BOMBS AFTER FEEDING THEM TO LVL 4 SEEL HIM OR TRADE AND DO SAME THING WITH OTHER FAILS SO GUD LUCK ;);)

Are we playing the same game? When I evolve Air dragons, I don't get ANY bombs!


You get one per four hours. If it's a five hour, the extra gets carried over so a three hour would add to that to give you a bomb. Same as in the Egyptian event etc where you plant the 10 minute plants - you eventually get enough for an hour's part.

There is no extra carrying over for me. I got only 3 bombs this morning for Laserlight(15hrs) and 4 bombs just now for Lacewing (18hrs). Also, dragons that evolve in less than 4hrs have given me NO bombs. If they did, all those Air dragons we bought and hatched for the Egyptian event would have been handily converted to bombs. No such luck.

Ouch, just used up 4 bombs and despite getting multiple hits per bomb usually i only got one from each this time *pouts*

Edit: well, "usually" might be wrong word, but quite often at least...

Hi belbar no need to feed ur own dragons just feed the fails u got from breeding my limit is till 15 hrs I evolve my mist fail and feed him to come on 4 and it gave me 4 bombs so GUYS USE UR BREEDING FAILS TO GET BOMBS AFTER FEEDING THEM TO LVL 4 SEEL HIM OR TRADE AND DO SAME THING WITH OTHER FAILS SO GUD LUCK ;);)


Agreed!

I agree with LemonadeMouth and MakJulos: usually I got 2, sometimes 3 pieces from each bomb, now 1, maybe two. This way this is another gold-trap from TL.

I started this Amber-mining with 25 bombs (didn't need a third Platinum, so I didn't use them), and am evolving 24/7. I have 86 amber pieces now, don't see how I ever gonna get 200 in time...

All im saying is that its pretty hard to get bombs for those who cannot evolve at lvl 4

Why can't they? Are they on android? I missed something, didn't i?

Im on iOS but i can evolve only on lvl 6 because thats how it was when i started to play. So as u can imagine i cant afford to feed all my fails to lvl 6 only to evolve them. Thats why is pretty hard for me and all the players like myself to get needed bombs. Thats what im trying to explain to all those who wanna give me good advices to evolve at lvl 4 my fails. Well, thx ppl, but i cant evolve at lvl 4!!! Hope i made myself clear this time:)

hi! I just switched from android to ios and I started that mining thing to get amber dragon. The fact is that it seems impossible to get the 200 pieces in time since you get only one or max 2 per bombe! So can anybody tell mewhat will happen to the amber that has been collected? will it be useless once amber dragon is no more available?
thanks :-)

All the other parts from former mining or summonings are useless, so I assume the Amber-parts will become useless too.

The way they set it up does seem to put more pressure on players with older accounts where you only evolve twice, players that has loyally stuck to playing DS, perhaps gotten most dragons already, and leveled them up high also....while noobs like myself have it easier. I think many "veterans" know their dragons and a few tricks so they get around it still, but it does seem unfair rewarding loyalty this way...BUT, as always it's complicated making everyone happy (and surely this setup is what's best for gold sales lol).

I'm not sure i like this model really, it's just another thing i must keep in mind, and makes playing DS even less casual sort of...well, no big deal - i am free to just relax, and skip Amber, so nothing to complain about really!:)

Well i love Amber, idk why but i become pretty crazy when a black hybrid its involved and ill do whatever i can to get it. Thanks to all who wanted to help with an advice or a nice word but i like the fact that i can evolve only twice and i dont want to change it. I think this is my 3 rd yr here on DS and this is the only game i kept so much on my phone. I think this tells everything:)

After having played since last september only, and seeing how new dragons are being constantly implemented 13 by the dozen i really doubt i can ever get such a feeling for some specific dragon or color combo hehe!

And yes, mining Amber or not - i do envy that you only have to evolve twice lol!:)

03-30-14, 10:21 AM
Yes, water dragons work for evolving to receive bombs for the mine. Light dragons also work if you have the extra cash and 9 hours is more convenient for you. I do get a dynamite when I hatch an Air Dragon (I have been breeding Diamond + Air and getting lots of Air fails that give me 1 dynamite); however, I cannot speak for evolving for bombs because I have not evolved the Air Dragons.

Getting an Amber Dragon in 30 days is easy as far as I'm concerned... it might be hard if you are low level AND cannot evolve from 3 to 4, because that would be expensive, but a high level can easily buy and evolve lights, waters, or airs. The only way I can see it being a problem is if you are maxed out on dragons & habitats and have no room to buy and evolve a water. And as far as getting that many bombs in 30 days... this also seems easy to me... it's been going on less than a week, and I am already about halfway there. Also, I am still usually getting 2 hits per bomb, rarely I get 1, and rarely I get 3, so those probably even out. Extremely rarely, I get 4 or even 5. One time I even got 6, but that was a while ago, and I think they've lowered the success rate and/or the number of attempts per bomb since then.

Now that I've said all that... I have a question for y'all, if you don't mind answering. I've tried searching the forum for the answer and haven't had luck. I remember reading before that if you acquired the 10th expansion from the mine, that it shuts down the right side of the mine. Is that still the case?

Thanks.

I don't know why you are saying that TL have done anything to the drop rate (there are no random drops in the mine) It is the same set up that it has always been -1 piece available and it's just a matter of where you click and depends on luck until you get near, then more luck and a bit of skill to hone in on the piece.

Perhaps you're correct, or not - we'll never get a straight answer about it anyway :D Myself i don't know, i do get fewer drops in mines lately- that is a fact - but i may just be extra unlucky. But, if wanting to make players possibly buy more gold it would be a good idea to have random number of rewards in mines, and let some players get good drops so they can post on forum about getting 4 pieces per Bomb, while other get fewer rewards in their mine and exit disappointed....but no, that's ofc yet another conspiracy theory :eek:

I think there would be even more whining if it was more random - and you would be getting fewer amber pieces because you are just more unlucky about not clicking near the amber pieces....... pieces do not "drop" it's all about luck as to where that piece is. Sometimes I can click 6 times before I even get near and then sometimes I'm very close on the first click. Just luck.

What I find is that once I've got the first piece a lot of the times the next piece is very close to where the first piece is.

It's not the cost that is the problem. I plant diamond dates as in have ?250 million coins. But if you use apples to level up waters to 6 which I have done a couple of times, then it takes even longer to evolve my other dragons. Really hacked off with the limited time element of this.

I have noticed that once you have discovered your first prize, the mine randomly places the prizes again. For instance, I will place a bomb and it will say "too far". When I find the prize in 3 or 4 more moves, I place a bomb next to the "too far" place and discover that I am now very close or have hit a prize again. This has happened on multiple occasions for me.

Wah. Not evolving at 4 is a major plus. Plus diamondates are the one of the absolute LOWEST food producers at 160/hr. Upgrapes are 600 per hour, almost 4 times faster! if you really need food, plant a better crop/

I totally agree with this, knowing when event finishes from the start is good...but then if the set duration is ok or too short, that's another matter. I don't like the way they set it up, i understand it's just another type of goldtrap, but when the evolving is so different on old/new accounts...yes ofc you can succeed with the event no matter what account you have, no matter what level you are - just spend enough time or gold on it, but...well, i wish it was arranged in some other way.

Your expectations are extremely unrealistic. Maybe for an hour in the evening (if I don't have something else to do), I could plant crops every ten minutes. But the rest of the day I have stuff to, you know, DO. If I planted upgrapes every 10 minutes I'd do nothing but play Dragon story all day long! Planting Diamondates 3x/day plus one or two crops of Rushrooms is generally the best I can do.

I still say TL is making it extremely hard for those of us who don't evolve from 3 to 4 (normally a plus, yes!! But not at all fair when it comes to receiving bombs--we should get double bombs, or TL should give bombs for some other activity instead of evolving) and don't get a 7th farm.

While I agree with the first part of your post, I have to wholeheartedly disagree with this. If you do the math on how big of an advantage not having to evolve from 3 to 4 is, I think you will find that it is MONTHS of evolution that you do not have to do. That advantage puts you MONTHS ahead of the rest of us, and that disparity only grows with every new dragon we acquire. A new 24 hour dragon? Another 24 hour advantage for you guys. So if you ask me if I feel sorry for y'all that you have to buy and feed water dragons to level 7 just so that you can MORE QUICKLY get this month's mined dragon (you might get it even if you don't take this the extra step), then my answer is absolutely not.

I recently acquired 5 ultra rares, averaging about 40 hours per dragon. 200 hours is over a week of evolving that you wouldn't have had to do. A week, with just 5 dragons. Like I said, you have an advantage of MONTHS over the rest of us. To hear you complain about this advantage because of a minor inconvenience really irks me, and probably a lot of others.

Edit: Granted, I will admit that this advantage will probably eventually even out as I finally get all of my dragons past level 3 and food becomes the limiting factor to evolution. But as of now, I have a queue of many weeks worth of dragons that need to be evolved, and food is not the limiting factor. And I have been playing almost a year, I believe.

I have to evolve them from lvl 4 - lucky you. I have a very long list of dragons waiting to be evolved. If you have 250million in coins just evolve them other dragons. If you run out of dragons to evolve just put in water/light and evolve to lvl6. Good luck in mining.

I have 51 amber pieces. I will need at least 6/7 amber pieces per day to get to the goal.
Therefore I keep evolving dragons with a long evolving time (16/24 hours) - egyptians are a plus on this.
With 6 bombs usually I get at least 8 pieces. It will, take time and patience, but I don't see how I could fail. ;o)

One of the things that I particularly like about this forum is that people are allowed to express different views in a spirit of tolerance. I think it is incredibly sad that you should be irked by the fact that those of us who only evolve twice are highlighting that this makes it nigh on impossible to get 200 pieces in 31 days. Yes, I may be lucky to only have to evolve twice, but I have never been able to breed a diamond and after almost 2 years of play eventually saved up enough gold to buy one. I never felt it was unfair that other people seemed to breed a diamond so much more easily than me, I was happy for them, if a little sad for me. I have also really struggled to breed new dragons and most of the ones I have are from tournaments and summoning these days, yet others seem to breed new dragons with relative ease. Once again, I am happy for them. TL has always operated a system of game play which can be unequal, however I am not sure why I should be disadvantaged for something which I have no control over. It is not my choice that I only evolve twice, that is TLs decision, based I am sure on the fact that I started playing this game not long after it started. I play Castle Story also and joined after last years valentine edition, so I never got a love shack and have not therefore been able to get an energy giving dragon which can be a huge advantage to those players who are lucky enough to have one. Does this irk me? Not at all, I am happy for them.

You, like everyone else on the forum is of course entitled to express their opinion, however please don't be irked when others express theirs.:)

I don't like how mining for Amber is set up, but it does bring one good thing, at least the way i see it - the desperate evolving of dragons to get Bombs has made me level up dragons that i might not have leveled up otherwise...usually i prioritize dragons which can be useful - at least in theory lol - in the lottery arena, and a bunch of my dragons have stalled at low or mid level, but now i see an actual practical reason to evolve some weaker ones too. Since i want all my dragons to become epic even if they're not of much use in arena or produce loads of coins more good can come out of this for me than just Amber :)

I don't know if that is happening or not but I have had a "Too Far" spot and just adjacent to it I hit a very close which is strange. Luckily, I tend to hit two eggs for every bomb most of the time so getting 200 of theses in 31 days should not be an issue for me. I have so many dragons at lvl 3, 6, and 9 that my evolution temple is running 24/7 non stop. I get 6 bombs a day every day.

That's very nice - i think i'll manage to get the 200 also, but work and sleep does barge in a lot already - luckily i'm really not that fuzzed about it, it's not like there's a lack of new dragons being implemented in game lol, i'll survive missing out on Amber if that happens :D

I think we should be able to choose from 3 different dragons through the mining process. Maybe like roulette.... when you hit 200 you can select from a random choice of 3 super rare or maybe even an ultra rare one as well that you get to choose based on what you currently already own.

however I am not sure why I should be disadvantaged for something which I have no control over. It is not my choice that I only evolve twice, that is TLs decision, based I am sure on the fact that I started playing this game not long after it started.

The irony of that statement is that we are all also being disadvantaged by something which we have no control over, which is when we started playing the game. When I started playing the game, which is something I had no control over, meant that I was doomed to do three evolutions instead of two, which meant that now that I have already started months behind other people, I also have a disadvantage of months worth of evolutions, and that disadvantage grows greater with every new dragon that we acquire, as stated earlier. So you have an advantage that perpetually gets better, at the slight annoyance of having to buy and feed water dragons up to level 7 if you want this months' mined dragon, which you will most assuredly get if you stick with it, despite your claim that is makes it nigh impossible to get in 31 days, which I do not believe.

So yes, you are "disadvantaged" by your advantage (slightly), which you had no control over, but we are also disadvantaged by your advantage, which we had no control over, and because our disadvantage is much greater, I believe you should be advocating for the doing away with evolution from 3 to 4 for all players before you are advocating that you should receive another advantage on top of your advantage to prevent your advantage from having a slight disadvantage associated with it. And now my tongue is tied.

And yes, you can express your opinion all you want, and I will tolerate it, of course, but it does not mean that I will agree with it, nor that I will not express my opinion back, nor feel feelings of being "irked," which are all things that you should tolerate back, according to your own statements.

Fyi, I also had a very hard time getting a Diamond dragon. I even spent 300 gold on the boost to make it 6x more likely to get one, spent the entire time trying to get one, and still failed. Finally, after months of trying, I finally got one... and soon after, I was able to breed Crusader (twice), Quetzal, and Infinity, because those are easy once you have a Diamond... which is why I just recently acquired 5 ultra rares.... and fell another week behind you on evolutions.

And also fyi, I play Castle Story and also joined after Valentine's Day, and also cannot get the Alicorn; however, unlike you, I am also irked by it. It is not the fact that they/you have an advantage that irks me... it is the fact that it is an ever-increasing advantage. They can now permanently find more Alicorn parts and craft new Alicorns... an infinite amount of them.. and ultimately have an unlimited supply of energy. There are people out there with an Alicorn for every day of the week already. Shame on TL for creating advantages that produce ever-increasing disparity as time goes on.

Am I happy for you that you don't have to evolve from 3 to 4 and that some people in Castle Story can create more and more Alicorns? Yes. But I am also very disappointed in TL for their decision, and I am also slightly irked when someone takes their huge advantage and complains about a minor inconvenience associated with them, when the rest of us are so greatly and ever-increasingly inconvenienced comparatively.

Please understand that the nature of this method of communication is that my words can sound much harsher than how I mean them, and that when I say "irked," I mean only slightly irked... I am a generally good-natured person and hold no ill will towards you. To be honest, I am expressing my opinion more so that TL, if they are reading this, can see the other side of the argument on this and maybe do something about it that would be fair to ALL players, rather than come up with a solution that only helps the already greatly-advantaged players. Of course, TL's track record is to release new content rather than fix problems, because after all, people BUY new content, and I guess they don't believe us when we say that we would spend more on the games if they would fix the current problems and poor decisions.

You make some fair points and I am glad you are only slightly irked Lol. I have to confess I am more than slightly irked that I don't have a 7th farm, which would go some way to easing my feeding problem. Incidentally I completely get the frustration over evolving from levels 3 to 4 because that is what my daughter has to do and she gets really fed up as it takes so long to evolve her dragons. It would be great if evolving at level 3 to 4 was abolished with immediate effect, however I guess that is never going to happen as TL have never seemed remotely concerned about lack of parity. Time will tell, if I end up getting my amber dragon in the end although I will be really fed up if I don't cos I must play this game about 20 times a day (Hopelessly addicted you see) and feel rightly or wrongly that I should be able to complete challenges if I put the hours in.

Good luck with your collecting and maybe I will strike lucky and they will have a double reward event. :)

This wasnt my intention. And those were the rules when i started to play. So good luck to all on getting needed pieces!Btw bel, ure a great lady:)

You are too kind lemonade. Congrats on your pieces. As of now I have 69 pieces and no bombs left although I will have 4 more bombs tomorrow. I am now working on my Venetian masks and levelling up thunderbird from 9-10 to get my next lot.

Hey, I have around 96 amber pieces now. When I saw limited time on the platinum, I saved up my bombs for 4 days. Combined with the saved bombs and the ones I got by evolving my diamond, crusader, quetzal, cleopatra and other long evolution times dragons, I managed to collect 96 pieces. Will I make it to the amber at this rate? Hope I do. I'm trying hard and haven't sped a single evolution yet.......

I'm so happy that they've added another dragon to mining. I enjoy the little mini-game of mining and wasn't happy that I had no reason to continue once I had the Platinum. Fingers crossed that TL will implement a new dragon each month. I know it's a dream but I think it'd be great if they would add discontinued dragons to the mining rotation. My other high hope for mining/crafting is that TL issues a dragon that will use up all the extra pieces we're left with after crafting a dragon. Like a Mishmash dragon made from 10 pieces of platinum, 10 immortal masks, and so on. A girl can dream, right?

Superares give large gems. If u want so desperate large black gems breed a virgo with diamond/ leo. It gives u a large black gem.

It has only been available for 7 days and I have 89 pieces so as long as you run the temple 24/7 I think collecting 400 pieces is possible. It depends if you get 1, 2, or 3 with each bomb. I know if varies.

You don't get a gem from breeding. I think what LemonadeMouth tried to say was that breeding diamond/Leo can give you a Virgo, which in turn can be traded for a large black gem. Hope I got that right!
And I'm on 99 Amber Pieces now. I'm gonna get some more in a few hours when sphinx is done evolving! And I haven't sped any evolution yet!

Just used up another 22 bombs and I'm now at 97 pieces. This mining goal is not as hard as one would think. You just have to be patient and pace yourself.

23 more bombs and now I'm at 146 pieces. Slow and steady wins the race. Looking forward to getting this dragon soon.

Also, I've noticed something about the evolution temple. It gives 1 bomb per 4 hours. I evolved a bunch of poison dragons (each at 21 hours), so each would give 5 bombs, plus there would be an extra hour. So when I evolved 4 poison dragons in a row the amount of bombs were as follows: 5, 5, 5 and 6. So it seems the extra hours are tallied and I was given the bombs accordingly. 84 hours in total and 21 bombs received (so I still got 4 per hour).
Not sure if anyone else had spotted it before, but it was worth stating.

Air dragons do give bombs after evolution but I don't think it's because of the bombs being carried over. The evolution time for air dragons is 4 hours, I think, different from the incubation time i.e. 2 hrs. Since the game gives a bombs for every 4 hrs, naturally, an air dragon would give bombs. I might be wrong about this, though, and my air is at epic so I've no way of checking this out. If any one has evolved an air dragon, can you please confirm the evolution time?

Well, I evolved my air dragon, which took 3 hours, because I read here that they give a bomb. I didn't get no bomb. I do recall at one point though, I got a bomb for evolving a life dragon (3 hours). I'm pretty sure there is an invisible bomb containment facility in the background of the game that stores bombs.

I gathered 19 more bombs and managed to reach 183 pieces (A little disappointed with the results, my luck may be decreasing). However, I have a sunrise dragon which should finish evolving in the morning, then I'll put a water dragon afterwards, so hopefully the 9 bombs I get tomorrow will take me to 200 pieces. Then I can start working torwards a second amber dragon.

I'm with you summer. I have started buying waters and evolving to level 7 as that is the least waste of apples. I only have 130 eggs on one account and 136 on the other. There is no way, I can evolve any of my dragons to level 10 as the food costs are just way too high (Not helped by wasting apples on waters and not having a 7th farm).

For me i evolved my dragons which has a longer hours in my evolution temple which means i can get more bomb to use in mining. i think the maximum is 10 bomb. and sometimes i speed up the evolution temple..

i was hoping to get 2 amber dragon my target was to get 1 in 15 days because Amber is here for 30 days..

so far i got 189 eggs. I want 2 amber dragons because i want to trade it for 1 black gem so i can craft my tiger's eye dragon..im behind 1 day now with my schedule..

But, i'd hate if i didn't make it and would end up with loads of leftover Amber parts... So i wonder how many bombs i can save up before i actually use them in mine, maybe i can let bombs pile up and see if it's possible getting a 2nd Amber... Otherwise the bombs might give a nice headstart for future mining dragons, hmm...

Considering how poorly balanced the event is depending on how many times players can evolve dragons on their new/old accounts it ought to be likely that they for fairness prolong the event, but...ah well, decisions decisions.....:rolleyes:

I'm crafting Amber now;) and I also only evolve dragon on lvl 6 and 9.

On the other hand, my other acct that is evolved dragons at lvl 3,6, and 9 still need about 30 pieces more. Oh well, still 12 days left.

So IMO on what lvl you are evolving it don't matter as long as you have food to feed your dragon. No need to evolve until epic if it takes too much food, just feed them on lvl 3 and 6 if you're on 3 steps evolving group. And feed them on lvl 6 if you're on 2 steps evolving group.

The problem is that food is expensive! :]

I'm up to 194 amber pieces, so I should begin crafting tomorrow after mining one more time. I do evolve from 3 to 4, but also plan my evolutions 'round the clock. Getting so many breeding fails that there's always someone to evolve and trade away.

I found that at lower levels it is good to have as many habitats as possible and higher earning dragons to get income coming in ...once you stock pile coins food costs are not a problem

I did not think about that! I only can evolve at 7 and 9, so it is hard for me to get bombs. I save them indeed for a later dragon. I just needed 7 bombs for the last one..the time was to short for me. Now I got a new plan, now we must hope that TL gives us a new dragon to find/craft.

You must have your evolution temple idle a lot of the time... I keep mine going 24/7 and I still have many, many dragons at level 6 just waiting for a chance to get in.

My first amber has been though the temple once (lvl 3 to 4) he will probably never get passed level 6! and I'm working on my 2nd to trade for a large gem.

I think I would like it better if I could choose which metals I can collect in the mine and do the dragons in my own time frame.

Because for some of us 31 days isn't enough and for some it's too much for one dragon but not enough for 2.
My Amber is crafting now and I have lots of dragons that still need to be evolved. So my evolution temple will still be going non stop and I can't keep more than 25 bombs.

OR maybe we could keep an unlimited number of bombs. :-)

Either I get 1 (rarely) or none at all. I tried 9 hrs. of evolving, And I get 1 or 2 bombs. I got 8 bombs one time only, and I forgot w/c one it was. It's a bit vexing and frustrating :rolleyes: . Right now I have 171 total. I wonder if I'll be able to make it! So, I'm curious to those who finished this game and the ones who's going for the 2nd Amber. How did you guys do it?! :)

There is one bomb for every 4 hours of evolution but there is a maximum of 25 bombs allowed in storage, so if you have 22 bombs you will only get 3 more bombs when you evolve, regardless of how long the dragon has been in for evolution.

I see. So it's just abt. right. Except TL is neglecting to give me my 1 bomb for every 5hrs. Of evolution! Well, let me clarify that... Sometimes I don't, sometimes I do get my 1 bomb. (sigh)... However I know abt. 25 max or limit for the bomb. That's not the issue but thanks for your info. It helped a lot. :o

Wow, I have just started crafting amber on my main account and should be able to craft it on my other account in a couple of days. I never thought I would make it. I have had to hatch about 10 water dragons though so I can evolve them and I only have 4 dragons at level 9 with the rest at level 7. I am going to start saving bombs for the next one so I can be ahead of the game when the next dragon is launched.

My evolution temple is like a busy bee, never stops. Sometimes I speed it up and still I have lots of babies lvl 3 and lvl 6 to evolve.
The reason why I am so far behind is that I reached lvl 45 when there were 18 days left.
So today is 9 days left and in 9 hours I will have Dawntree out of the temple then the Crusader goes in.
I have 75 Amber pieces at the moment
Without the "double your reward" I wouldn't be able to make it.

04-17-14, 10:04 AM
At my current pace, assuming I get an average of 2 pieces per bomb, I should be able to get 200 pieces by the last day, so I can craft a second amber dragon. If there's a double weekend, I'll definitely get it before it's gone.

I have 75 with 6 bombs still to use - I started on my 2nd one with about 14 days to go I think. I'm not speeding up the temple yet but will do that or buy some bombs at the end to get it. It's going to be tight to get this 2nd one!

If you noticed each bomb costs you 8 gold if you buy it at the mine.
In this case it would be better to speed up, 1 bomb will cost you 4 gold
or purchase the balance of Amber pieces, each piece costs 4 gold.

That is why the "double your reward weekend" is highly anticipated...

Yes I did notice individual bombs cost 8 each... I wouldn't do it that way. You can buy 10 bombs for 40 gold which is the same as speeding.

I just used the 23 bombs and got 51 more pieces! What a lucky mining session! 49 pieces remaining. At an average of 2 pieces per bomb, I need at least 25 bombs, which is 100 hours of evolution time. I have a little over 4 days remaining, roughly 100 hours, so I should still be able to make it.

I dont like the system, the time and the whole idea. Arena is 99/ month and this 200/month and we cant evolve at 4 , plus we cant breed so fast new dragons. Is not funny at all and harder than arena. No more dragons to evolve and 7-10 ask a huge amount of food. Not to mention not even a 2x event...
