You must download the new update - version 1.2.1 from itunes - for the arena work.

The Arena is open for business!!! (For all players level 17 & up.) I believe the timer started at 5 days:12 hours:30 minutes from a minute before this post (2:30PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time). Win all 30 rounds and your prize is a Nightmare - super rare fire-dark hybrid with a 19 hour incubation time (egg is placed in your inventory upon completion, to hatch in your nest whenever you feel like it.)

Super Rare
habitats- Dark or Fire

You can only battle once an hour for free. Hurrying the timer costs 1 gem per 15 minutes, rounded up. Healing time for your animal after a lost battle is 10 minutes. Unlike the battlegrounds, you can SEE what your opponent will be before choosing your champion to battle it.

To maximize your chances of getting a critical hit, choose an animal that has the element listed under "Strong Attack(s)" and attack with that element. The rarer the better, and the higher its level the better.

Round 1 of 30: level 1 pandaffodil, price for entry: 1250 coins. Rewards: 300 apples, 2000 coins.
My level 15 daredevil's strong fireattack did almost nothing, even though it's only a level 1 panda. But a critical hit finished him off. So once again, strategy matters little if at all. It's all about getting critical hits.

The animals I used that won:
Daredevil (15), fire attack
Glacial Griffin (10), alternating water & earth attacks
Planther (15), nature attack
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Rampage (15), fire attack
Frostfang (15), water attack
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Daredevil (15), electric attack
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Ancient Sloth (15), earth attack
Daredevil (15), fire attack
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Eagle Beagle (11), electric attack
Thunder Mammoth (12), electric attack
Daredevil (15), fire attack
Daredevil (15), fire attack
Rampage (15), earth attack
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Glacial Griffin (10), earth attack
Daredevil (15), electric attack (after many tries)
Daredevil (15), fire attack
Chameneon (15), dark attack
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Chameneon (15), dark attack (after many tries)
Ancient Sloth (15), nature attack
Ancient Sloth (15), earth attack

GOOD LUCK, everyone!

Level 10 Pegasus failed. At least there are rewards and no healing.

It's going to be too much battling here and on DS. One after the other. Takes the fun away from special events. Though with DS I'm almost at max habitats so may have to stop playing soon. Can't afford to upgrade with gold.

No healing? Doesn't your animal get exhausted if it loses? I imagine it would self-heal within an hour; but what if you speed the 1-hour gate? Won't the defeated animal be down?

Thanks SAND. Will have to see how it goes. Last two DS tournaments I didn't get past levels 20 and 25. More on principal of not wanting to use ultimate, when others can breeze right through the same dragons. Plus running out of room, so losing those was not terrible. Really like this reward though. Will have to see how the gems go. Though with an album missing 16, if I don't get this guy, plenty more to keep trying for. Except Emerald. Just can't go there. ;)

Not sure as I won't use gems to speed....at the beginning. My defeated Pegasus is available to fight in the Battlegrounds (which I am slowly meandering through.) We'll have to see how TL plays this over the next few days. Expect the unexpected. Or the usual. :D:D:D

Second time around beat the cute little sitting Panda (some of these are really, really cute when babies) with Vinotaur, using fire. Took two hits. Thanks for the chart Z. Going to make use of it since my games are not the ones programmed to win without angst.

And I was able to use my defeated Pegasus, in the Battlefields, before the hour was up to do the Arena again. So it looks like no healing in the Arena......so far.

You must have read my mind. I was JUST about to ask if anyone had checked that.

Though it is possible they do require healing time, it is under an hour if so. The only way to find our for sure is for someone to spend 4 gems to hurry to the next battle as soon as one is over. But... not me! lol

Remember, they normally heal in 10 minutes; so unless you speed battles, there's no way to know whether they get exhausted. I will test it as soon as I lose my first battle.

I was hoping they modified the battling where 3 strong attacks would beat an opponent but that doesn't seem to be the case. This brings a level of complete randomness into play that will make winning 30 battles in a limited amount of time quite difficult, if you aren't around to battle every hour.

Unless the chemo is playing havoc with my brain (been known to happen) I'm sure I looked at the Pegasus right after it lost the first round, and there was no healing happening. I'm sure I'll be able to check easily enough, as I always lose at least 2-3 battles in the first 10. I can't imagine FS will be any different than DS. :D

So... I actually tried to lose the second battle, using a Level 3 Thunderhawk, knowing both its elements would be weak against Armordillo. But the darn little bird went and rolled a Critical Hit on the second attack so he won on the third. They just won't cooperate.

LMFAO! That is hilarious! The "strong" / "weak" really means nothing. It's a shame. Like brandonu, I had really been hoping this would require more strategy than the battlegrounds. Ah well.

ETA: Actually, I think my strong attacks won with only 2 hits (strong, then critical). So it may matter a little. That or it's the level difference is what mattered (I used a level 15 planther).

Well, since I bought $100 worth of gems to buy an Emerald Dragon because I gave up ever being able to breed one, then decided I needed another fail first so I would have enough explosives to expand while I waited for my planned purchased egg to hatch, and although I bred for a fail but by a miracle of fate my fail was the Emerald Dragon I had coveted for so long, I have been sitting on a hoard of gems, some which I have used to expand a bit and some to fatten up my Pegasi Air Force.

But I have a pretty good nest egg left so to speak. Enough that 4 gems is barely a sneeze, whereas before I dropped the hundred dollars into this I might have been a bit nervous.

Yeah, the combatants get bigger and their "Level" goes up, but I just wiped out the first ten of them, mostly with my Level 15 single elementals and my Level 10 Pegasi. Like the other battles, I am either once again lucky or more likely dense, and I have had about the same kill rate, never needing more than two combatants of mine to one of the enemy, and it seems to make no difference whatsoever what I choose to hit with, because I have never figured out what beats what, but it seems so random to me that I suppose I am randomly lucky. I didn't bother keeping a list of who took out what and what element I picked, but the only difference I have seen between these and the other battles is that a single early critical hit doesn't always knock even the babies down. I won every time when I managed a critical hit, but it might have taken a strong or weak hit to finish them off.

I have never had a battle strategy, because until now I don't remember knowing who the opponent would be, but I have noticed a few things having completed the first ten rounds of this Battle.

First, The level of the opponent seemed to matter not a bit. The strength they had all were at least equal to any Level 10 I have fought in previous battles. The Level 1 cute baby Panda wiped out my Level 15 Multicolored Panda who only managed strong or weak strikes. Two seconds and four gems later it's tiny cute panda butt evaporated at a breath from a critical hit out of the gate with my Level 15 Pony.

Second, the level of my animal didn't seem to matter either. I admit I haven't tried any animal at a level less than 10 because I have a Full Album of 10 or greater so since the opponents seem to all be stronger to start with than would be expected by taking their size, cuteness, or level into consideration, I didn't. I am fighting as if the opponents are not cute, weak little opponents to start with because they arent. Trojan Horses, the lot of them!

Of course they can be beaten, at least the first ten. I didn't keep track in the heat of battle because I am an elderly Berserker and but it seems as if I won slightly more the first time than those needing a second go at them. It seems your prizes increase as you fight the higher numbered opponents. There seems to be some heavy hinting that you should feed your animals for the coming battles. But I noticed from the previous round of battles where I had the same five Level 15 animals I still have, that they performed no better in battle than my Level 10's did. Actually, I noticed the Red Pony, Blue Fang and the Rhino did either poorly and lost so badly you wanted to pity them, or their first hit was a Critical and they were proud of it. Those three have performed like that consistently for me since I began playing FFS.

If this Battle follows along the lines of previous ones, with a bit of flair thrown in with the special battleground and fanfare and Golden Trophy and all, I expect we are going to find that even those who aren't gem speeding and don't have an Air Force or a Full Album or even very many level 10 or higher animals will have little trouble finishing this Challenge within the time allotted. The first ten did not get progressively more difficult for me as I had expected. They started out in disguise with the baby pat me on the head and I will blow you up panda, but they didn't get worse. I think this might be slightly more challenging psychologically more than in actuality, because it takes some work to get past the idea that you are not fighting a baby panda, you are fighting it all grown up standing behind it's baby picture.

When I looked at the others like that, they were no more difficult to beat than opponents in previous battles. TL pulled an excellent battle strategy on their side. They changed the battleground and made it appear that the little guys and gals are super strong, which could cause us to worry that we might not be able to fight this unless we have everything I happen to have (purely by luck).

After having fought the first ten, I suggest that by taking each battle as a single battle, forgetting the previous win or lose, and not worrying about the next one to come, you will do just fine. Yes, as in other battles there is healing which takes time. It seems to be roughly as I remember it was in prior battles so unless you are speeding, don't sweat it. Your prize fighter will be all rested in an hour I am assuming unless there are some unknown surprises. If you have a strong army, it needn't be that large and you will win plenty of food to feed your soldiers. If you have a strategy that works for you or you follow someone's strategy which works for them, follow it! If like me you go Berserk and assume it is all random anyway go for it your own way!

This looks like a lot of fun and what a prize! I think it might have thrown some of us like me for a loop when there was apparently a big battle going on and no instructions, and then I would wager more than half of us lost that first fight with the baby panda and assumed that if a baby was that strong we could never win. I think that is the enemy's strategy in this battle folks. Call out your best Generals who will be posting here and win! Don't be fooled by the panda baby picture trick.

I expect we will hit roadblocks like we did in the regular battles, and I suggest we concentrate on getting past those, the ones that hold up a lot of people, rather than trying to figure out what to use to fight every single opponent, unless that is your preferred battle strategy. I think much of this is random and we will see that if we start charting every opponent, because we will find that what worked for me on the eighth one doesn't work for the next one who tries it. That is why I neither kept track and had I done so I would not have posted it because I think I might have wasted some of your chances to win with your choice but make you lose using my choice first. I am already wearing Thunderhawk egg yolk for breeding my Emerald Dragon as a fail!

But I think if we hit a level that we can't get past after two or three tries, it could be a TL trap, and then we will likely benefit by comparing notes.

Good Luck strong warriors! We will win that awesome Prize! (anyone know where they will put it or what it will do yet?)

My wifi was down all day yesterday so I didn't see the update with the new battles until I got home from work tonight. There's no way in h-e-double hockey sticks that I'll be able to finish the battles in 5 days, especially since you have to wait an hour between each one. Oh I could use gems to hurry it along but I never spend real money on these games. Too bad for me :o So good luck to all and be sure to post pics when you're done! Can't wait to see the Nightmare ;)

It was no more difficult to vaporize the tenth than it was the first. Might have been easier. That panda might have been on something, like a ladder.

Updated OP with levels 1-10, thanks sukyee & bluefoxcrystal.

I really do wish that at level 40 you don't have to pay more than the reward you might receive. The coins AND food amounts should go up for higher levels (at higher levels you need a LOT more food to level even 1 crittter once a day than you do at low levels to get that same critter from level 1-10. Especially since the entry fee goes up with your level!!! Why do we have to pay more and get (relatively) LESS?????

I mean, a lower level player gets a net gain of 1,250 per battle won plus enough food to level a rare dark hybrid from level 1 to 6.
A level 40 player gets a net LOSS of 500 coins per battle won, and only 8% of the food it costs to get a rare dark hybrid from level 10 to 11.
Does that seem right? Our fees our increased for leveling, and the flat prize structure means a net LOSS of coins, and almost nothing to help level our critters which are usually at a higher level than lower lever players.

The opponents from level 15-29 are around lvls 15-19 while nightmare is 20. Round 15, and 20 have lvl 18 creatures and round 25 has a lvl 20... If I remember correctly... And then rounds 26-29 have lvl 19 creatures. I used around 10$ in gold (using ultimate only once and on 2nd unicorn). I have no real idea how many times. I do know it was a few!

So Rounds 15, 20 & 25 are bonus rounds, as it is with Dragon Story, but where DS offers us Gold bars for the bonus, we don't get the equivalent gems here. Just a wee bit more coins and fruits thrown in. Pity. I was looking forward to gems. Gosh, even the regular Battlegrounds award gems in certain levels. What's up with this?

I'm not concerned with prizes being offset or exceeded by entry fees. I guess my DS experience got me used to paying for nothing but the win or some dragon part (of which I would need to collect 100 to make a new creature), so these little coin-n-food tidbits meant nothing really. But seriously, they need to throw in some gems for those bonus balonus rounds.


I've got Round 13 coming up, so I'm happy with this pace so far. I'm still experimenting with weak fighters and they are still conspiring to bomb my experiments with their lucky Crit Hits. Babies are the funniest fighters. The way some of them throw themselves onto the ground or make faces. Hilarious.

Thanks zenobia for the awesome chart, and bluefoxcrystal for speeding through to get data for the rest of us! That should come in handy for future battles as well if the strengths stay the same.

I did well until I hit level 25, rarely losing at all after level 10 by attacking with any Level 15 single element animal that was not included in the element list of my opponent. At Level 25 when I began hitting opponents with levels higher than any of my animals, I also got a migraine, and figured that I would give each one one try and if I failed, spend the 30 gems to be done with it. I think I had to use the Ultimate three times, but it was worth it because I am finished and can sit back and watch the way real warriors fight these things.

I think I am going to love this Nightmare. So pretty and I like the horses.

I have to say I would not be so laid back about this if I had not had so many extra gems begging to be used or lost in gem traps, because nearly every battle was engineered to be a net loss, some small, some larger, and that is assuming a win every time. This battle is costly even if you don't speed through or never use the Ultimate, something I had never done in the other battles but since I had the gems and wanted to move on it worked for me. Had I not been sitting on those gems I would not be on the done side of this although I still haven't hatched the Nightmare. I would probably not be nearly as satisfied as I am with this since I could afford to finish it off on my terms.

I was willing to buy $100 worth of gems to stop the gambling losses from trying and failing for the Emerald Dragon, but I expect that to be a one time deal, as was the awesome luck of winning the Emerald seconds before I was planning to buy it. Those things don't happen twice. So I was able to enjoy flying through this battle pretty stress free once I realized that the baby panda was a fake because if it had been a Level 1 anything, a Level 15 animal should have smashed it without a thought, but there is no way a true Level 1 Panda would wipe out my Level 15 Panda and not break a sweat.

That was unexpected. The second battle was not. It was handy that we could see what our next opponent would be, because once I got by the shock of being beaten on my first try by a cute little panda baby that particular TL tactic failed to work on me again. It is difficult even in a game like this, to throw everything you have at the cute cuddly babies, but once I got past that tactic it was like any other battle until I hit level 25. So close to the end, but I had no more tolerance at that point and I did have plenty of gems. I would be interested in seeing how others fought the really big Level 18 and higher opponents ;) I admit, I took the cowardly way out and hit them with the Ultimate for the most part. I was surprised at how well my Lightening Leopard fought in these battles, because in the last one it was a disappointment. I still can't help the feeling that most of these battles are not based on strategy, but random luck because there are still instances where a low level youngling will pull off a critical hit on a much higher level experienced older animal. Then again, we each have our own theories and most of us manage to make it through these challenges if we keep playing no matter what technique we use. I would hate to think anyone would lose the Nightmare though. Such a wonderful prize!

Does anyone know if the Nightmare has to be hatched or simply placed on the nest before the five days are up to earn the three gems and small experience prize for participating? I know that being done with the battle doesn't do it. Mine is sitting in storage right now and I haven't cleared the reward by finishing the battle. Depending upon the hatch time if the egg has to be hatched to get the reward, those who play without buying gems might have to set alarms to finish early to make sure their Prize hatches, or lose the three gems. I hope that it is awarded when the egg is placed on the nest, but what if someone has a really long queue combination with a long hatch time egg on the nest and another waiting? I suppose you can place an egg from storage on the nest even if you have an egg waiting to be placed from the breeding ground? I hope so but even then, I can envision some losing because they are waiting for a sixteen hour fail to hatch when they win their Nightmare egg and they don't gem speed. Seems an unfair loophole for a few unlucky to have their timing off a bit.

TL, why make the Prize being placed on the nest or hatching, something that depends on factors entirely divorced from the Battle, part of the requirement for getting the reward for the Battle? That seems to be unfair to some and it has nothing at all to do with their Battle performance.

I am sure someone has mentioned the hatch time for Nightmare, but I still have my migraine and rather than trying to go back and read all of the previous pages where it seems I missed it if it was mentioned, could someone list it again? Thanks!

Anybody else REALLY want a gem sale??? I haven't seen a single gem sale on FS since I started playing, but if they were to have one now, I think purchases would go *way* up!! ***hint, hint, hint***

I do love the look of the prize, though not its name. I see the thread title & think "Oh, no. What now?" ;-)

Also, I highly recommend for anyone seeking Emerald & participating in the tournament to do both at once. Battle & breed every hour. I started this yesterday, got lucky & got Emerald on my second try!!!

Good luck, everyone!!

As for the goal "on hallowed ground" I think we just have to win the tournament, not place *or* hatch the Nightmare egg.

It says: "Win and hatch a nightmare! Win the tournament before the time expires!"

I interpret the second sentence tells us how to complete the goal.
The first sentence tells us why we WANT to complete the goal. "Get and hatch this really cool thing!!!"

TL, can you confirm? :-)

I think it's the opposite. If you win the Tournament you will have the egg. No question about that. But the goal has a counter of 0/1 next to Nightmare's icon, and the goal will only be satisfied when you have in fact HATCHED the egg and the animal is in a habitat, bringing your Nightmare count to 1. It needs to show up in your album for it to count. You can of course do this long after the Tournament is over and gone.

I know this to be true because my Troll egg has been in storage so Trolling In The Deep remains incomplete.

"Win and hatch a Nightmare" tells you what you must do to complete the goal and earn the reward of 3 gems & 15 XP.

"Win the Tournament before the time expires" tells you what you absolutely MUST do if you're going to even have an egg to hatch.

I'm gonna strangle that little red pony if it rolls back my battles one more time!

This time around, I opened the battle screen to Level 13 against Aquatter, which was where I should be. Pony praces across the screen, then when I hit the BATTLE NOW button, I find myself face to face with Dream Bat again. Sure enough, the battle screen on the inside now says Round 12.

I'm made sure I pinged the server before I went to the arena too. Blasted pony. I'm not liking the pony.

Anybody else REALLY want a gem sale??? I haven't seen a single gem sale on FS since I started playing, but if they were to have one now, I think purchases would go *way* up!! ***hint, hint, hint***

I do love the look of the prize, though not its name. I see the thread title & think "Oh, no. What now?" ;-)

Also, I highly recommend for anyone seeking Emerald & participating in the tournament to do both at once. Battle & breed every hour. I started this yesterday, got lucky & got Emerald on my second try!!!

Good luck, everyone!!

I saw and purchased a small number of gems in a gem sale that popped up when I first played FFS, and it was there less than half an hour because I went to put money in my account and when I returned it was gone. It appeared as I was playing that one time and I have seen no gem sales here since. I agree, I would stockpile gems as I did in Castle Story, jumping on the usual once a week sale there. No such thing here I am afraid and somehow I doubt there will be. I suspect the one sale I caught that time might have been a programming check to set it up in case the decision is ever made to have sales, but since I have never seen one since apparently TL is making all the money they want from this game by charging exorbitant prices for everything in multiple layers, like a million coins to expand, then when you get to where I am expanding now, it costs at least a million if not more to clear the rubble left behind after a day and a half or more wait once you again raise the million coins to clear after you raised and spent a fortune to expand. I don't play DS so this concept of waiting for days between steps to accomplish things that take days to raise the coins to pay for is foreign and annoying to me, but apparently the way this type of game is played, using geologic time scales as opposed to modern clocks ;)

I would love to see weekly or even twice weekly gem sales here in FFS. I would feel there was some effort on the part of TL to allow those of us who buy gems to feel like we are getting at least a bit more for our money since they don't seem to be in any hurry to make the prices themselves reasonable. I wish I saw some sign that they were going to do either, but I see no hint of price equalization for value received. FFS is like playing games in a Carnival at a county fair. You know that if you do win something which is less than more likely, you will spend ten to hundreds of times winning it than what the prize is worth. You give your money to an entity for the honor of playing to lose it.

You have a great strategy there on playing on all fronts, and not abandoning the slow and steady for the heat of battle, but to play on all fronts. Congratulations on getting that Emerald Dragon! That is an awesome accomplishment! I am thrilled for you!

I see you also got lucky with Emerald after buying gems to purchase it. Congrats!

I really do hope they decide to roll out a gem sale. Everybody spends their money differently, but personally I LOVE to 'get a deal' and frankly, I would give more cash to TL if they had sales. Now, for them, that's the trade off - Will they make up in volume what they 'lose' from discounting purchases people wouod have made regardless? I imagine they have some (in-hous) stats on this (for their other games, at least), but they have to also factor in 'customer satisfaction' as that will ensure their long-term success. *** Gem-sale, please?? ***. ;)

Any word yet, on the hatch-time for Nightmare?

infinitelove19
09-17-14, 12:34 PM
I think it's the opposite. If you win the Tournament you will have the egg. No question about that. But the goal has a counter of 0/1 next to Nightmare's icon, and the goal will only be satisfied when you have in fact HATCHED the egg and the animal is in a habitat, bringing your Nightmare count to 1. It needs to show up in your album for it to count. You can of course do this long after the Tournament is over and gone.

I know this to be true because my Troll egg has been in storage so Trolling In The Deep remains incomplete.

"Win and hatch a Nightmare" tells you what you must do to complete the goal and earn the reward of 3 gems & 15 XP.

"Win the Tournament before the time expires" tells you what you absolutely MUST do if you're going to even have an egg to hatch.

You might be right, but this goal is written differently than trolling in the deep. I still have that one & it had two separate parts. First to defeat the troll. Second, to hatch it.

The current goal for nightmare does have "0/1" on top of the picture of nightmare, but I'm still hoping that just requires us to *acquire* nightmare, not hatch it.

Has anyone completed the tournament yet? Did their goal disappear???

I think you hit the nail on the head Sand, thanks! That makes sense, and as long as that gem prize will stay there until the Nightmare is hatched, separating the prize of three gems for hatching the egg from the prize of the Nightmare for winning the battle, this works for me!

I don't think TL needs to confirm infinitelove19 unless you are calling me a liar which I don't believe that is your intent. I think maybe I didn't make myself clear about what I was asking, sorry.

I have completed the Battle. I have the Nightmare egg in storage where it goes when you win the game. For me, the battle is over. I have not hatched the egg though. So yes, I did win the Nightmare, which is maybe where I didn't make it clear. I won that part and I have the egg. I didn't win the 3 gems nor is the challenge removed from my challenge list. TL doesn't need to confirm that. I assure you that is the situation In which I currently find myself. I have an unhatched Nightmare egg sitting in my storage. I am concerned about the necessity, or if there even is one, about the need to rush to hatch my egg now that I have won the Battle. That is why I asked the question.

I have plenty of time to hatch out my eggs both in the breeding ground, and I assume unless the hatch time of the Nightmare is many days, I will have it sitting happily in a Habitat by the time the five days run out.

What my concern was is what if someone is lucky like you were infinitelove19 but instead of today, on the last day of the battle, shortly before beating the Nightmare in battle, someone breeds a 45 hour egg? I was concerned about the "what if". Would you give up your Emerald Dragon or your Nightmare that you won a few minutes later? Would such a decision need to be contemplated? Fortunately Sand has answered that there is a positive solution already in place to address such a situation and fortunately both animals would be perfectly safe and no decision would need to be made.

Sand answered the question. The challenge remains in your list until you have hatched the prize and placed it in your Forest, but there need be no rush for that and no decisions or choices to make. You do win the Nightmare as a prize for winning the 30 battles and I believe that was the point you were making infinitelove19 and you are absolutely correct.

But my poorly worded question concerned the outcome of hatching the egg and if you would still get the three gems plus the small experience if you failed to finish the entire sequence of both winning and hatching the egg within the five days because 1. I got the impression somewhere that it takes quite some time to hatch this awesome horse from the egg once you win it. And 2. I wondered what would happen if you were unable to both win the Battles and hatch the Nightmare within five days.

Sand has made it clear, based on experience with sitting on a previously won egg, that the result is that if you win the Battles you will indeed, as you state infinitelove19, win the Nightmare as the prize.

But there is no rush to hurry to hatch the egg. I can leave the egg in my storage indefinitely, and hatch it at my leisure, and I simply will not win the three gems and the experience points until I have completed the challenge, at which time it will then be awarded and cleared from my challenge list. This is what I had hoped, but not actually expected, would happen.

I am thrilled that both infinitelove19 and Sand had the right of it, even though the answers are in fact the answers to two different questions.

I apologize infinitelove19 for not clarifying which question I was asking. I think that may be where the confusion came in. I had meant to ask if the egg had to be hatched within the five day limit to win the three gems. Apparently I failed to clarify that I already knew that the Nightmare itself was the prize for winning the Battles. I should have clarified that I had moved past the question of what the prize was for winning all 30 Battles. I somehow got two different issues tied together in my original question. My mistake, forgive me please?

Again Congratulations on getting that Emerald Dragon infinitelove19!

:D :D ;) :rolleyes: :D

Yes, I finished the Tournament.

I won the egg. For me the Tournament is done. I cannot get back in and fight any more battles.

I have not hatched the egg. Sand answered my original question. I do not have to hatch the egg to win the Tournament. The egg is the prize for winning the Tournament. I possess it. I won.

I do not have to hatch the egg within the five days to win the Gems and Experience in the challenge or quest list or whatever it is called. That still exists. From Sand's answer, it will exist until I get around to hatching the egg and placing it in a habitat. Once I do that, I will have completed the challenge which is slightly different than winning the Tournament. As soon as I place the baby Nightmare in it's habitat I expect the challenge to disappear. I can do that today or tomorrow or next week. I have won the Tournament.

Had I failed, at the end of five days, to win the Tournament and receive the prize which is the Nightmare Egg, I could never finish the challenge and could therefore never have a chance to finish the challenge, hatch the egg, and place it in a habitat.

I hope you believe me. I can't understand why you would not believe me when I state that I have finished, won, got the prize. What do I need to do to prove it to you? Why should I need to. Isn't my word on it enough?

I came to fantasy forest as a reprieve from DragonStory. Sigh.

Now they are the same. Double sigh.

Guess this one is a no go, too. I "finished" MonsterStory. DragonStory finished itself with no more room, no possibility to breed dragons much anymore, no hope of getting a diamond in a new game, too many dragons, way too many battles. I truly dislike arena battles.

Bah. Fantasy Forest is worthless, now.

My brain clearly is not functioning today!! I believe you, Lee. For sure!
I have some cognitive difficulties, especially with reading, so that nugget of information just didn't register.

Congratulatiins on the Nightmare. And since the goal is still there it seems I was wrong, but so it goes sometimes.
The quest seems to expire in 5 days - it has a timer on it. So I think unless you hatch it before then, the goal will disappear with no gem rewards to be received. The goal disappears when the time is up, but the Nightmare is definitely yours to keep!

The troll goal stuck around because it had no timer on the goal. ;-)

No problem. My brain does that too!

When I went back from posting here there was no more timer and when I try to get to either the arena or the place we just went for this Tournament, I get a pop up notice. If I click on either it tells me that I have finished all Tournaments and to check back later for the next release or something to that effect.

There is still the goal left to win and hatch the Nightmare in my quest list. It has no timer on it. I am just guessing because I am not familiar with these types of games, but I would suspect that if there was a time limit on the hatch as well, somewhere I would still see a timer. I lose way more than 3 gems a day to gem traps, but I buy gems and have an entertainment budget that most players probably don't have, so three gems may mean a lot more to those who don't buy gems than they mean to me.

Also! I have discovered that for every apparently silly question that I am sure everyone but I already know the answer to, there are some too shy to ask the same silly question, and many of them value 3 gems more in the long run than I do. What I worried about was some who might find themselves down to minutes a few days from now, have just bred a surprise Emerald Dragon, win the Nightmare in a last epic battle, and worry about what to do, if anything, to save those 3 gems. I was curious about what would happen, and what a person finding themselves in a situation like this should/could do if they obviously wouldn't want to have to sell either. I am pretty sure that there would not be an issue after reading Sand's post. I am even more sure that I can keep my Nightmare in storage and still earn those gems if I don't hatch her for a week, based on the fact that the timer has disappeared along with any indication that I am still playing in a Tournament. The goal however, still exists in my list.

We will know for sure of course when someone else's timer runs out, assuming that I don't already have her hatched and a mommy herself by then.

But whatever, it seems obvious that it won't be a big deal either way. The most that could happen would be that 3 gems would be lost.

This was a fun Tournament with a sneaky Trojan Horse strategy by the enemy and I agree that the faces of those super babies sending those whopper hits against an animal supposedly fifteen levels stronger than they was quite funny...once.

Then when I figured it out it was a pretty good group of battles. I think TL should be given credit for changing things around a bit, so that everything was not as predictable as I at least expected. Maybe this type of variety is common in DS but looking back to the beginning when we didn't have very clear instructions and it appeared that a Level 1 Panda was taking down our best fighters with what looked like little baby panda sneezes, all looked lost before we took down that first "baby"!

Nightmare is a pretty prize. The Tournament is not over for most, but at least a few of us have finished successfully. Zenobia's chart appears to have a good list of winners and people have succeeded using it which should give those with limited time and money hope that they can still succeed.

Thanks everyone, for working so well together, and zenobia for the chart! Thanks infinitelove16 and Sand for answering my question! After the start and stop way this game began I expected to hate it and I am still not sure why I kept coming back, but I am glad I did. At first it was boring, then way over priced, but now it is still way over priced in my opinion, but not boring! I like it!

Okay, so the timer on this quest is not like the timer on actual timed quests. This is a fake quest timer that disappears when you are done in the arena. I really do not understand TL's logic on this. WHY is there a timer on the QUEST... then that timer disappears? Shouldn't the timer be on the arena ONLY if the arena is the only thing timed?????

Entered the Arena. Imagine my surprise when, at the bottom of the fighter list is a Level 1 Leopard! I had JUST started the Lightning expansion, which won't be ready for another few hours.
Curious (of course), I selected the not-yet-freed Leopard cub to fight cuddly Panda cub. Blank (neutral) hits on first two attacks, then ... You guessed it -- she put the Crits on baby bear like nobody's business. POPPED that panda! LOL Mind you, she's still trapped up in that rear corner of the Ice Shelf.

Anyone with Nightmare egg in storage whose timer has disappeared, keep an eye on it to see whether the timer reappears by Sunday. Animals who are being retired often get a timer put on their associated goals about 3 days ahead of their leaving. If the 3 gems matter to you, watch for any change in the Nightmare goal between Friday and Sunday.

However, I'm sure if the goal disappears by Monday and your egg is still tucked away, Support@TeamLava.com can make it right with your reward. I'm sure it won't be a problem. Players often win the last round of a tournament with minutes left on the clock. I know I have in Dragon Story. Heck, I've seen cases over there where the tournament goal REFUSES to go away. LOL. No worries, people.

Some advice for battling, which is predicated on DS experience:

When selecting your critter for battle, try to either match or go one up on the rarity level for your opponent. For example, if you're battling a rare, pick a rare or super rare. Super rare, try to pick another super rare.

How far up your critter is leveled up should also help; for example, a level 10 in DS is more effective than a level 1. Since the game is relatively young, I only have one that is at level 15 (pyro pony), but I've got a pretty good distribution of level 10 animals.

There's an advantage in FF that even if you lose a battle, your animal is ready to go again at the next battle, so take note if your choice had strong attacks, because odds are pretty good that it may work the next time. Don't be discouraged by losses; I've spent 1.5 days battling just one dragon numerous times on DS tournaments and have still won the tournament without using ultimate, so don't be impatient to win. My rule of thumb is generally that if you're holding a good pace, save the ultimate for battles that aren't won after 12 tries. If I hold this pace:

round 8-9 by Tuesday,
round 16-17 by Wednesday,
round 22-23 by Thursday,

then from my experience, I'm usually done by Saturday night or Sunday morning. Although, I have waited to ultimate until the last hour on Sunday night before, so there are always exceptions, lol.

Hear! Hear! It's so not us, but you TL. We too sync first before doing anything important. It's hard enough to win battles here without problems. Having battles reset is ruining the game. We use the internet for school and have to connect to certain programs that require a great connection. We have that. Your servers are messed up. Please fix!

I just finished the tournament & Nightmare is on my nest. Since I am breeding Emerald Dragon right now and have an empty nest, I wanted to get nightmare today so it can hatch. This way, I also don't have to spend the next few days obsessing about it. ;-)

I did find the last few rounds needed ultimate to win. I think the odds go way down for those later opponents, just like on DS tournaments. Or similar, at least. I'm sure if you were willing to spend the whole tournament playing & maybe speed it up a few times, the ultimate attack would probably not be necessary.

On another note, my timer is still there. The timer is not visible inside the goal, it is on the left hand side when you open the goals menu & says 5 days (currently). I took a picture, but don't know how to post it.

I beat Round 15 a SECOND time, beat Round 16 an hour later, then an hour after that lost Round 17.
But when I sped up to try Round 17 again, I'm back at 16 now.
Come on!
I'm supposed to beat 30 opponents; not freakin 60! An occasional reversal I can handle, but this is beyond bearable now.

Sorry to hear that and hope it gets better and here I am complaining about being stuck on R14. So far I have used Fire Glider 2x, Thunderhawk, Pyro Pony, Ocean Owl and Lightning Leopard. Any suggestions would be helpful Ty :)

This tournament is not easy. So far I am at round 16, but lost 10 times from 25 attempts. (15 win, 10 lost). I lost on round 3 one time, round 10,11,13,14 2-2 times. And at round 16 first attempt lost also.
Note I am past 2 nights, I mean I could fight less than most ppl, because where I live, tournaments start at night. I just woke up and continuing fight. Wonder if I can finish without using gems.

Also a note on post 1, to Zenobia: thanks a lot for the post. However, it would be wise to add a plus column, like "avoid use". What do I mean? For example, I am now at round 16, against peamoth (dark nature). Fire element is good against both. But since peamoth is rare, I have to choose a rare-super opponent (simple fox is not good choice). If I choose an opponent, it will have a second color. What should this be? Well it should NOT be earth, because nature is good against it. Also it not should be gem, since dark is good against it (but because there is no gem-fire hybrid atm it is no problem). So what should I choose (as second color)? Nature or dark. And avoid earth. So it would be nice to see an "avoid" column. What do you think?

I'm with you (starts in the night) but worse off. I'm on Round 6 only and lost about 15 times so far. I keep getting 3 strong hits, but no Critical before I'm KO'd. It was really frustrating the 5-6 times (total) I lost rounds 1-2 while using level 15 animals. At this rate it is looking to be impossible. Only a few of the Battle Arenas ever had me lose so much. Why was this made so seemingly ridiculously hard for me?

My advices. Since volcamel is rare,use only rare/super rare against it. Also, since fire is weak against both water and earth, and volcamels other color (earth) are neutral against it, best choice may be (your highest level) any rare or super rare water-earth animal. (rockodille, iciclaw, gracial griffin)

Use rare or super. Do not use earth element. So use fire+dark or fire+nature combo (but hit with fire only).

I'm managing somehow. In spite of the round reversals, I just beat Round 20 (half expecting I'll have to do it again.)
Two steps forward and one step backward is still progress; just at half steam.
The reversals are only affecting my Level 40 forest (Satyr Sanctuary). The Level 17 one (Forest Gump), which started the tournament last night and has beaten 6 rounds, is not experiencing this so far. (Knock on wood.) Both forests are being played on the same iPhone.

Round 16: lvl 10 rampage (fire attack)

Actually, I wont recommend to use rampage here. Earth is weak against nature, this is the worst choice you can choose. Any other fire combo is better. You still can succeed (just like you did), you have a chance with any animal against any other, but the best choice is to use the best one you are having at the moment.
At round 16, any fire-dark, fire-eletric or fire-nature rare or super rare is better.

Yes, indeed, I DID have to beat the Drake of Round 20 a SECOND time (using Daredevil). I am going to finish this tournament with more victories than anybody else. And at the rate this is going, my younger forest that started this thing more than a day later may finish first.

Tell me how this could be an issue with connectivity, hardware, operating system or installation issues when it's only affecting one of two accounts using the same copy of the game, on the same device, via the same Internet connection, playing more or less at the same times. Something stinks.

The Storm8 icon in the upper right corner of your game screen offers a portal between multiple accounts. The portal only operates in certain games (e.g. Restaurant Story, Dragon Story, Bingo, or the Mania games -- Candy Mania, Bubble Mania, Jewel Mania, etc). I use Dragon Story to cross over between 3 different accounts.
If a welcome message with "Account Settings" appears under "More FREE Games!" in your Storm8 menu, then that's a portal.

Also a note on post 1, to Zenobia: thanks a lot for the post. However, it would be wise to add a plus column, like "avoid use". What do I mean? For example, I am now at round 16, against peamoth (dark nature). Fire element is good against both. But since peamoth is rare, I have to choose a rare-super opponent (simple fox is not good choice). If I choose an opponent, it will have a second color. What should this be? Well it should NOT be earth, because nature is good against it. Also it not should be gem, since dark is good against it (but because there is no gem-fire hybrid atm it is no problem). So what should I choose (as second color)? Nature or dark. And avoid earth. So it would be nice to see an "avoid" column. What do you think?
I can add the column, sure. But the thing is, as far as picking animals, so far, I have found that the rarity of the animal you choose to fight with seems to matter more than whether its second element is weak or neutral.

For example, on round 16 (bamboon), I first tried a level 15 planther, a common. It has a strong element (nature) and a neutral element (dark), and is the highest level animal I have that is strong-neutral vs. earth-nature. But he lost. Then I tried my level 15 ancient sloth. He has a strong (nature, which I attacked with), but his second element, earth, is weak to baboon's nature. But he won. So when I avoided the weak element with planther, I lost. When I said nevermind the weak element, I think a super rare is more important, I won. If I added a column saying earth is weak to that chart, people might shy away from the sloth who is a winner.

But my experience could be a fluke. And I have beat rares with strong-neutral commons in this arena. So it's hard to say.

I made a list in the old battlegrounds strategy thread. But maybe this graphic I just made is better for showing strong vs weak:

Gosh - that is SUCH a cool graphic of the single-element relationships. My daughter will LOVE it! Will you marry us? LOL

You raise good points about the second element. We don't know exactly how TeamLava factors it in. What we DO know is that it doesn't affect the rating of the attack unless it is used. We also know it may only SOMETIMES play a defensive role, depending on which counter-attack the opponent uses.

So primary (attacking) element first, rarity second, then level or secondary element third, depending on what fighters you have available. Seems a sound enough approach.

Thanks! *blushing*

Perhaps instead of an "Avoid" column, I could add one with the "best" animals to choose?
The best would always be super rare (or ultra) with at least one strong element, and no weak elements.
For the Bamboon for example, in the "best" column would be Water Yak, Ocean Owl, Twilight Troll, Aurora Pegasus, Crystal Unicorn, Emerald Dragon.
Most would have shorter lists than that one. It just happens that there are 2 each nature-water and nature-dark super rares, and that neither ultra has a weakness to it.

I was thinking of also adding another column with "also good" animals (those with a weak 2nd element instead of neutral, and including rares and commons) but after looking at it, that list would be WAY too long to be practical.

ETA: Hm. Maybe I can add the "weak elements" column AND the "best animals" one? So if people don't have one of the "best" choices at a high level, then they can choose a rare/common of the same elements as the super rares listed, or choose a super rare with a strong element and no weak ones? I am wary of making the table too complex though.

ETA2: Maybe I'll just add the best column and the graphic. That should make it pretty easy for each person to pick their best options.

Hm. Since my Thunder Mammoth failed twice, perhaps I will try my Daredevil. Both are rare, and having a weak element in your animal seems to be not mattering at all, as long as you attack with strong. And my Daredevil is level 15 to my level 13 Mammoth.

With the sea drake, magmacore, glacial griffin and now grassquatch... it's taken 3+ tries to defeat. Still working on that pesky OP sasquatch; here's to round four in a few minutes. It's taking all I have not to cave in and use gems to speed up the wait, but maybe after four times, once more won't make a difference. HAH.

On the other hand, some cosmic force must be trying to balance things out for me, because I've been lucky to have beaten that unicorn twice in the first attempt. REVENGE for not letting me be able to breed one yet.

I used the gem attack on magmacore, but although the hits registered and I won, there were no words that popped up to be associated with it? Not sure why that was, so I'm assuming the first two hits were strong, and the third was a critical.

Since I started using the animals that are being suggested, I've been doing MUCH better! Thank you all again, because I REALLY want Nightmare! :D

Took down the crystal unicorn (battle 22) with a lvl 15 Chameneon. First try!!!

lacey, a LOT of us are getting hung up on that Sea Drake. Fourth time was the charm for me and I hope for you too!

Thanks, Zenobia. Though, just lost 4th try using my level 8 beagle. Bummer. Maybe I will try mammoth on 5th try. Running out of electric. Good luck.

Or try Daredevil again. He worked for me on my second try with him. And when I FINALLY got through that sea drake, I won the next batch first try each time. So it's just the sea drake that's the real PITA.

Battle 23 (glacial griffin) won with lvl 15 ancient sloth, nature attack.

I beat battle 24 gargolem with my good ole Ancient Sloth. Like a month ago I decided I needed to get one super rare to level 15 for battles. He has proven himself WELL worth the investment.

Next I will get 2 more super rares to level 15. The first will be whatever super rare I can get with electric in him (so, storm sphinx, gold lion, or terradactyl - whichever of those I manage to breed). Then a super rare of whatever other 2 elements are NOT in the electric-something hybrid or in the sloth. I am only breeding electric + fire + nature + earth (currently trying armordillo + thunderhawk) every time until I get an electric super, or a unicorn. In other words, since I'm clearly NEVER getting a unicorn, until I get that super lol.

Okay, unless someone uses a gem attack and gets a "strong attack" message, this is the new strengths & weaknesses graphic I made:

Zenobia, your chart is Devine. Thanks!

Thanks! I am very glad so many people are finding it useful. It's information I'd been collecting for a while now on strengths and weaknesses that I just applied to the specific opponents. Hopefully we can ALL win the Nightmare. :D

And I think we can all agree the Sea Drake is the toughest opponent at least of the first 24 of 30. It is because the ONLY element that makes a strong attack on it is lightning, and the lightning super rares JUST came out. I really hope in the future they do not do that again - give a super rare opponent that pretty well none of us has the strong super rare that can beat it because it JUST came out.

My level 15 Chameneon got the first unicorn his first try, but so far he is 0-for-2 on the second unicorn. :(

Okay, I'm more than a little insane and I made a new graphic that might be easier to read. Again with the caveat that it may turn out gem has a strong attack on one or more elements that we just haven't found yet. And I personally am unable to test unless the game lets go of the stranglehold it has on the unicorn I have been desperately trying to breed for 2 months.

Fighting with it at the moment. Note it is lvl 18, not an easy opponent. The first one (on round 22) I defeated 4th try. I have a lvl 15 sea drake to fight with.

Until I reached round 25, I won 24 times, lost 18 times, with the following schedule (only losses)
round 3, 1 time
round 10, 2 times
round 11,13,14 2 times
round 16,20,21 1 time
round 22 3 times
round 23 2 times
round 24 1 time

I am fighting with zenobia's first post, choosing opponents that are able to hit "strong", but also avoiding choosing second color a weak one (I always choose a neutral, or a strong if it exists). I only have one lv15 animal (sea drake), one lv12 (lightning leopard), but almost all my supers and rares are lvl10.

Good luck for everyone. Tournament is achievable w/o gems if you started the game early and have some lv10s animals. And time to fight. :)

For example, on round 16 (bamboon), I first tried a level 15 planther, a common. It has a strong element (nature) and a neutral element (dark), and is the highest level animal I have that is strong-neutral vs. earth-nature. But he lost. Then I tried my level 15 ancient sloth. He has a strong (nature, which I attacked with), but his second element, earth, is weak to baboon's nature. But he won. So when I avoided the weak element with planther, I lost. When I said nevermind the weak element, I think a super rare is more important, I won. If I added a column saying earth is weak to that chart, people might shy away from the sloth who is a winner.

Just wanted to mention that nature attacks failed me 3 times vs bamboon but one fire from my level 15 pyro pony took him out.


Second attempt at Sea Drake with Daredevil won! (After 2 fails with Thunder Mammoth.) I hope the rest of the arena doesn't take 4 tries to get past each one! :eek:
There have been levels in Dragon Story tournaments that I've fought 30 times and still not won. I, too, hope these battles are easier.

No kidding! That L18 wretch held me off at Round 25 for over 12 hours as my Phoenix, Gargolem & Pegasus kept pelting her rump with strong Dark blows.
Finally, after I raised the Phoenix to L13, I nailed her.

This is only the 2nd animal I've raised beyond L10. I may take it to L14 because Super Dark-Fire looks to be the go-to gladiator for all of the final rounds.

I posted it somewhere else, maybe it may worth discuss:

Which animals level to 15?

Actually, since your "wounded" animals heal in some minutes, and you can fight only each hour, in this game it is not necessary to lvl up to to as much animals as you can. Theoretically, it would be enough to lvl up four pieces, to have all elements in a lvl 15 animal.

For example, if you lvl up to 15 an emerald dragon, you will have an animal at lvl 15 with "gem" and "nature" element.
Add a sea drake, then "dark" and "water".
Plus an "electric" "fire", and "earth" with anything and you are ready.

But. If you use your lvl 15 against a particular enemy, it may be that one color would be strong, another weak against it. So, it would be better whether you can choose from at least two animals of yours. For example, when you are facing any opponent with fire element, a sea drake is not a very good choice, because dark is weak against fire, while water is strong.

So, what do you think, what to lvl to 15? (for next tournament....)

My thoughts:
- only super rares (or ultra rares); it is wasting your food to lvl up commons or maybe rares over 10.
- covering at least all colors once, maybe several times
- and... there may be more good thoughts.

[/I]...AND if you don't have to beat all of them TWICE![/I]

I've accepted my handicap but, after any tough victory (like Round 25), I speed to the next battle, hoping to move to the next round. It seems to work sometimes, but other times I find myself back to where I was before I sped up.

For example, after I beat Round 27, I sped to 28. I beat Round 28 then sped up again, ... and landed back on Round 27. It's as if the handicap program says "Wait a minute now, Miss Speeder. You only beat that Phoenix and Emerald once. You're the double-victory guinea pig, right? Sorry, we need to see you do those previous two rounds again. Your gems? Nope, you don't get em back."

Ever tried putting in for a Support ticket for stuff that goes kooky during a limited event? Hah. By the time they get around to you, the train has left the station.

Finally beat the level 22 Unicorn with a level 9 twilight troll. Had two strong attacks and finally a critical hit. Is it my imagination or is anyone else getting more critical hits by tapping repeatedly (the faster the better) on the element during the battle? If I do a normal tap I seem to lose more battles so I start tapping while the other animal is attacking me. I'm beginning to think this is a crazy idea but I do it anyway. Am I that desperate to get the Nightmare? :o

Nope. It can't be. Three separate accounts are playing Fantasy Forest Story on this SAME iPhone. Two of the forests (Satyr Sanctuary and Forest Gump) are in the tournament. My daughter's forest (Vash-Naroom) is still on L15. ONLY ONE FOREST is having this problem. Satyr Sanctuary.

What's more, it is terribly consistent:
Forest Gump must only beat same opponent/round 1 time: ALWAYS
Satyr Sanctuary must only beat same opponent/round 1 time: NEVER
Satyr Sanctuary must beat same opponent/round 2 times: ALWAYS
Satyr Sanctuary must beat same opponent-/round 3 times: NEVER

If there were some randomness to the pattern, I might be inclined to shrug it off a a glitch. Same pattern of hiccups on just that one account, yet all three are playing on the very same device. Not 2 devices of the same type; ONE device.

I just beat the Nightmare, but sure enough, I will have to repeat it.
In my attempts to bypass the handicap, I spent 8 gems to rush the Armordillo egg off my nest and plopped my Nightmare egg on it. Curious, I went to look at the arena area to see whether it had disappeared. It had a TIMER on it still! Just under an hour left to go? But how? I had just won the blasted tournament!

Nightmare prize egg on nest; but timer still over Arena.

Along came Pony, darkening my screen with her trot of doom. When the screen brightened, my nest was empty. Nightmare egg gone; Armordillo egg gone; 8 gold gone.

I won't speed now. What for? I've come this far on 59 victories. I will wait one more hour.

- covering at least all colors once, maybe several times
- and... there may be more good thoughts.

I think you've hit the nail on the head, it's a big problem that I'm having right now with my battles.

Currently, I only have one animal leveled up to 15, two at 12, but the rest are either 10 or below. I've been getting repeatedly stuck for the past few rounds, taking me 6 or 8 times to win, so my pace is very slow. I spent the first two months only breeding for unicorn, and I was very lucky to get one finally, but I've only begun diversifying my breeding plan over the past few weeks since then. Twice now, when I've been stuck, I've used my lvl 10 unicorn to get past the round, and I may have to rely on him to win the tournament.

If the pattern for DS holds for FFS, then I'm guessing in two weeks another tournament will come around. I'm going to be focusing on raising key animals to level 15, my plan is the troll, hydroyak, and sloth, which are all super rares and cover water, nature, earth and dark. Then I would be missing fire and lightning, of which I have neither as a super rare, but I'm working on breeding lightning combos right now. A gold lion would be ideal, fingers and toes crossed ;) but my daredevil will have to do in a pinch lol

For general knowledge, I think the unicorn (gem) is also effective against another gem, not just dark, because after being stuck against the first unicorn after 8 rounds, I finally used the unicorn and got past him

My plan is this:
To hopefully have 3 super rares covering 6 elements to level 15 by the next tournament.
I plan on covering 6 elements not 7 based on the probably VERY valid assumption that I will still NOT have a unicorn no less emerald by the next time. Or ever at this rate.
I already have a level 15 super rare earth-nature (my ancient sloth - and he has been a superstar this tournament). So I need fire, water, dark and electric.
I have no super rares with the electrical element at all. Yet. I am trying. I am breeding my armordillo and nth thunderhawk 24/7. Trying for unicorn but giving me many possible electric hybrid "fails."
If I get a Gold Lion, I will level it to 15, and then my third super to level to 15 will be my Sea Drake (which I already have). That, with the sloth, would cover all 6 elements.
If a new electric-water super comes out and I get it before the lion, then I level that to 15, and my other level 15 super will be the Nightmare if I win it.
If I continue my dry streak for electric supers, I am kinda screwed every time they throw another sea drake in the mix, and also screwed in that I have to pick which other super to get to 15 blindly, and chances are very high that I will choose wrongly and therefore need to level 4, not 3, supers to 15 to cover my bases.

Update: after I beat this unicorn I popped over here to post my result. Since then I've had trouble getting my game to connect to the TL server. When I did get back on...

Maybe you'll get a 2nd Nightmare egg. I have my level 30 battle in an hour. I just just beat level 29 with a level 10 Cosmic Phoenix (1 hit fire).

OK, so I've been stuck at the round 19 Magmacore for at least 5 battles now with no luck. I saw that someone won the round with a Glacial Griffin, but unfortunately for me, the game doesn't seem to want me to have one of those. I've been using the Ancient Sloth's Earth attack, and I'm getting strong attacks, but no critical ones. Does anyone have any suggestions about an animal besides the Glacial Griffin that they have had win that round?


I beat it with 15th level frostfang

Huh. I beat Round 30 AGAIN. Nightmare egg in storage AGAIN. 1-hour timer is on my Arena AGAIN!!!
So now what? I gotta beat it a THIRD time now? Should I even bother trying to nest this egg after what happened before?


I just closed and restarted my game, did some visits & collections, planted crops and watched the Pony do her prance. Timer is still on the Arena but the Tournament trophy icon is gone from the right side of my screen. Nightmare egg is still in storage. Im not gonna touch it. Let's see what happens 45 minutes from now -- whether I'll have to beat the Nightmare a third time.

Okay, the mysterious one-hour timer expired. Now when I tap on the Arena, it says "You've completed this Tournament." So I guess that's that. I only needed to beat the Nightmare twice; not three times. What a relief! Since this egg has now survived an hour in storage, I guess it's safe and won't vanish like the first one a couple hours ago.

When I said I wanted to have a Nightmare, I didn't mean for TeamLava to take it LITERALLY! This has been the strangest tournament I've encountered in any TL game (except maybe that first derailed Ethereal tournament in DS). I surely hope this must-beat-everything-twice handicap doesn't transfer to my younger forest, which is now a little more than half-way through the rounds.

Can you level the twilight troll to 11? That would be your best bet, since he's a super rare.

Fire is a weak attack vs. the gargolem since he has the earth element. Maybe try a different animal with nature attack? The highest level and rarity you have, no matter what the second element in your animal is.
