I really like this one and am going to go for it, but I have to say that with the added food needs it's really hard to pick which dragons to feed in order to evolve for bombs. I like the fact that hitting level 15 doesn't require evolving, but not getting any bombs for it makes it so difficult.

Thanks :) trying to feed dragons so that I can evolve them for bombs means I'll never get most of my dragons to level 15 :(

Love this dragon but I never have any luck with the mining o only have 25 bombs now and every time that I go to the mine the most I get in a really good day is 2 prizes of every bomb. Normally I just get 1 but there are times when I don't get any. So please share your secret with the mine please! !!! I really will love to have this one but so far I barely have 7 crystals in a week . I know that is how bad luck I have here. I try to follow the rule of where is near move 2 spaces and if it is close 1 space but even like that I never ever will be able to collect more than 30 collectable for a dragon in the mine.

Please help!

Total so far: 74 from 33 bombs

That's 25 I came in with and 4 awaiting in evolution, and 4 more I cleared out so I wouldn't lose them with 25 stored up from the last week. Rate so far is 2.24 fragments per bomb.

About to burn through the 25 mines stored up.

Total so far: 129 from 58 bombs

It felt like those 25 bombs went well but at 55 fragments it was a below expected rate of 2.2 fragments per bomb, ticking my total rate down to 2.22.

Onward!

You're always doing so good in mining, while for me, I always go the wrong directions and end up with mostly 1 per bomb

153 pieces for me, but the game starts processing every time I enter the mine and then disconnects so I've lost a few bombs due to this glitch...ugh!

When do you think this will become limited?

I was abroad and wifi was poor only have like 10 pieces. Think I shall skip this one and wait for the next one. It will be such a waste to get really close and then they pull the dragon.

Oh good....was worried about that since I need to keep the crafting building open for Dragon Tales. I still need about 25 pieces. I have enough bombs but can only mine about 2x per visit...otherwise I crash.

When I'm the one that starts the Mining threads, I not only post the images and info from the dragon, like I also establish a date for us to collect the parts, and I add this on the first day that the dragon is released, if you check there's no more records of me editing the first post xD

Yeah I noticed that's why I said maybe it was a different thread in my previous post. Cos I didn't see any edits. Maybe I got the dragon wrong. Either way I got my answer and don't need to be schooled. I noted my mistake of what I needed to do next time.

No wonder most of the old players left the forum. Shall go back under my rock.

Same here - but that's OK - when we are new we have to build up as we go - can't achieve everything over night! I just hope I'm not stuck forever with these crystal pieces I will be unable to craft this time. I'm concentrating on collecting Jigsaw pieces, even though I don't like the dragon as much as some of the others.

09-15-15, 11:54 AM
The update that just happened didn't mention that the dragon is about to expire on Friday, so we have good reason to believe that next Tuesday is the deadline, which isn't unheard of at all. They usually say if it's expiring soon.

PrincessCouture2014
09-15-15, 01:11 PM
yea I think we'll have a time till Tuesday and the timer will appear on Friday. I still need 60 pieces which means i need 60 bombs coz mostly like 90% of times i get one piece from one bomb and I have 11 bombs right now. will get 5 after 21 hours of first evaluation of Warrior Prince.

D_Raho
09-15-15, 01:27 PM

Question... I have 173 right now. No bombs but a line of dragons that I'm putting thru the evolution temple as fast as I can. Can someone explain how to know how many bombs I'll get depending on which dragon I evolve? How does that work?

It's the number of hours it takes to evolve divided by 4. So a 16 hour dragon would get you 4 bombs. And a 4 hour dragon would get you 1 bomb. It rounds down to the nearest whole number, too, so 19 hours would still only get you 4 bombs and anything less than 4 hours gets you nothing.

I'm not going to stop evolving dragons as to not waste bombs, there's simply too many dragons waiting to use the Temple. 15 unique dragons of which 10 are still at level 3 and a 13 or so dragons I got extra from breeding. That's two weeks of non-stop evolving
