THRILLED. It took long enough for the old one to go >.

Had 25 bombs stocked. Have 49 pieces from them.

Like an idiot, I had my nano on the nest, ready to come off for more bombs (36 hr dragon means 36 hrs worth of them) and took it off the temple before I had used my bombs. Heck, before this dragon was available! So I am out all of them :/ My cherry blossom is on the evo temple now, so I will have 26 hours worth of them tomorrow evening. That sort of makes up for it but not really :/

Either way, I am happy with the headway I am making.

Hey guys!

I miss out the fire opal dragon because I didn't have enough things from mining, can you guys please give me some tips on mining, apparently I suck at this.

Thanks!

Not thrilled about this because Ive had the fire opal for ages and it means I'm not getting the food bonus I desperately need, but I'll grit my teeth and bare it if it helps out the Android brethren!

:-( Ive got two fire opals already and looks like now a third??? Would rather have food... or at least an option to choose which past items I can get as bonuses (eg I have 196 amber pieces, or 132 geode fragments...)..

How long will the mine give out fire opal eggs as a bonus? I was able to craft one already and have 20 pieces for the next one but there's no way I can get a 180 extra eggs. So honestly I would just like the food or coin bonuses. I hope they stop dropping them soon.

The Fire Opal Dragon has been extended to Friday. Fire Opals will drop as bonus loot in the Mine and the craft is now available in the Spell Shop.

And for IOS also, many players have parts from old mining dragon in storage, and they are useless.

Yeah I don't like it but if it helps out others then I'll just suck it up. Ends Friday but I wish they could drop food too. On another note my game crashed when mining & lost 2 sandstone pieces. I had 26 and when I went back I have 24. So not cool.

Fire opal eggs will drop until Friday. ( When Fire opal dragon crafting option is removed)

01-28-15, 06:27 PM
Thanks for the reply Kooky. I'm just going to save my bombs until Friday then. I had 24 saved up when the new dragon dropped so I have a good start. Already have 30 pieces so I can wait a few days. I'm glad others are getting a chance to get extra eggs if they're only a few away.

Honestly, I'm not even going for this one. I really need this game to come up with dragons from some different elements. No more red/yellow, green/yellow, purple/green, blue/purple, etc. They've got all these unusual colors and elements. On the rare times they use them they're for dragons that are impossible to breed due to splitting. I wish they'd use the other colors for either mining or crafting. Or at least mix the colors more. Where are the Amber (black/red/yellow) or Platinum (metal/white) type dragons? Where are the Thunderbirds (white/purple/red)? When's the last time we had something in the arena that wasn't either a champ or another dragon of a combo that has 8 billion other dragons with that same combo already? Get with it TL. You're game creators. Be creative.

I updated yesterday (update 1.9.9) and i found that mining changed in something i don't like : everything went smaller !
Mining area became smaller, the space between 2 bombs went smaller !
Before update, mining area is about 75-80% of the screen, now mining area is not even half the screen ! (I got iPad mini)
Now i can't see where are mining area limit, and when i tap, it bombs next where i wanted to bomb ! :mad:
Anyone experienced same problem after update ?

I would like suggest that TL put some grid , so we can see the mining limits

Does anyone know what the significance of the "whistle" is? I usually play with the sound off, but turned it on for the last few times I have been mining. At first I thought it's another sign that I am close. The whistle doesn't appear to be consistent, I have heard it when I got "near" and today I heard it on 'too far'.

Totally agree with you. Don't know why I am still trying to collect it, must be that marketing ploy of 'limited' that's gotten to me, lol. I've got 140 so far.

I'm also on an iPad and the mining area has definitely gotten a lot smaller.

I went to my storage to find out how many pieces I have, so I can post it here. Turns out I had 201 and didn't even notice. It is crafting now.

I'm not really that good at mining, I sometimes loose focus and get only 1 piece from mining. But I usually keep Evolution Temple busy around the clock.


132.... a few of my mining ended up with nothing....

I usually break the area up into 4 pieces and go from there. Once you find a piece, the whole thing resets so just because you weren't close to a piece originally, the 2nd piece may be right next to where you already looked.

Are you familiar with this usefull mining guide (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?72394-Dragon-Story-Mining-Guide)? It helped me a lot.

Yeeeep. Seems this has happened to a number of players.

I have enough pieces to begin crafting, but I'm going to wait and see if I can get out a Lighthouse first. I might not like that one, but its better to craft than have the pieces sitting around in storage forever.

Glad I am not the only one being affected by a dysfunctional mine, used to enjoy mining, now it so frustrating you have to tap where the game wants you to. Have you also noticed bombs now make smaller sizes, only get 1 piece if I am lucky per bomb now, could get 4 if I was really lucky😱

This limited range thing has been happening to me also. I haven't come to a conclusion as to whether it is now designed to be helpful or not.

With that amount of parts left that you need to collect, I'd advise you to just let this one go. There's only 68 hours left so that's 17 bombs if you evolve non-stop... so unless you can gather 145 pieces in that amount of bombs, I think you're better off saving your bombs for the next mining dragon. You could have 25 bombs by the time it appears (a few hours after Sandstorm leaves) and that will give you a huge head start! :)

That does sound better than being stuck with 100 rocks. Is there a cap on the amount of bombs you can collect or is it unlimited?

Nope, no use for the extra mining pieces. They'll just sit in your storage. Better hold off using your bombs for the next one.

You can only store 25 bombs max, if you continue taking dragons out of the evolution temple while your bombs are at max, you won't receive them anymore. So if you decide to save your bombs and you get to 25 before the new mining dragon shows up, take a break from evolving dragons first so you won't lose those precious bombs.
