Hurray! I am SO OVER waiting for the new mining dragon, I thought we'd never see the back of Garnet, lovely as it is, but got it ages ago and all my bombs have been going into the munitions graveyard for weeks!

I can mine again! YAY! :)

Not complaining, but again a black/red combo??

Not complaining, but again a black/red combo??

Last 3 as follows, I believe, were not black/red:

Crystal Super Rare Y Gemstone Purple Blue
Azurite Super Rare Y Black Blue Purple
Garnet Super Rare y Gemstone Red

Black seems to be everywhere lately, but I think that may be in response to the players complaining black has been hard to get.

On the other hand, there has also been a lot of "pretty" dragons lately (Ice Queen, Prime Chroma, Winter Lily, Beauty to name a few)

Not upset to see another black. I am sure I can two and I have an amber waiting to evolve that I plan on trading which between the two will give bpneed the blacks I need for the final black crafting; tigers eye. I didn't do great with my 36 bombs, only scored 76 pieces but at least no misses and I got a lot of food.

Off to a fair start, 54 pieces for 25 bombs.

divanightclub
11-24-15, 05:27 PM
I currently have a total of 64 pieces, ( 52 from the 25 that I saved and 12 more from poison that was already waiting patiently after evolving)

DeeDe99
11-24-15, 10:55 PM
72 pieces with plenty of evolutions looming. Aiming for two of this one so I can trade one for a large onyx.

I come across new bugs everyday, wow.

So I had 25 bombs and the first three rounds went perfectly smooth, but then suddenly the next round showed me a mine that had holes in it from my previous round. I just used my bombs anyway and I could even use my bombs where the old holes were.
26346


The next round showed me the old and new holes.
26347

Then the loading symbol appeared and after some time it resetted everything. I got all my bombs back, but it's still weird because I just started the game.

Never heard of that bug before.

That really sounds like a bad connection, not a bug. The not refreshing display, your bomb count resetting - that's connection. Are you in wi-fi? Did your router spontaneously reset?

I always use Wi-Fi, but I was at the computer during that time and never once did my tabs stop loading or anything. I also just checked my router history and no disconnect there.

I mean it's not that huge of a problem. I got my bombs back and I can use the mine as usual, but I just never saw something like this before :D

It could still be a connection issue with your isp dropping between storm 8. Very unlikely to be a bug or it would have been happening before this on all mining screens. I suppose it could be viral if you are on android but I don't know much about android other than I had one a couple years ago and didn't like it so traded it for a mini lol

Now at 61 shards from 26 bombs and 5 bombs in store.
Also I am going for 2 of these because of the large onyx :)

I agree with you Deedee
Lots of beautiful new dragons. Lots of black hybrids. Now I need to mine hard to get 2 of this beauty. I wanna trade one for a large black gem.

I have a new bug, nothing I do produces bombs!! Since finishing the Garnet dragon I've hatched 5 eggs but I still have only got my left-over 3 bombs from Garnet? I'm playing on an Android if that matters. I sent an email to the address in the FAQs but no response yet (since 3am ).

DeeDe99
11-26-15, 09:47 PM
It is the Evolution Temple that gives bombs.

The Breeding Den gives dynamite.

Hatching eggs gives neither.

Simdiva
11-29-15, 07:58 AM
Doubt I will keep the first one of these as I already gphave lots of black red. If I get two which is like, I will keep the second. I would rather have tge gem to craft tigers eye. I am in the oricess of trading Amber now for the other gem.

DeeDe99
11-29-15, 05:40 PM
I was going for two on the basis of getting the Onyx for a crafting dragon, but now I have two Cursed Rose dragons, so one may go for an Onyx.

Half way to the first anyway, with an Infinity, a Unicorn and heaps of others waiting to be evolved.

It's happened to me a few times and it always resets itself. Luckily, I don't lose bombs. It can be frustrating cuz maybe I collected 10 pieces then it resets and when I do it again maybe I only find 5 pieces :/

When it happens to me eventually the lil Dragon comes up saying "processing" so my dumb WiFi is losing its connection even though I see I am still connected. I take it as a connection issue.

evolution tample gives you bombs.so when you evolve dragons you get bombs. I get only explosives when I breed dragons. I'm on android too.

sorry if this has been asked before, is there a upper limit how many bomb storage can hold?
i see the storage count kept at 25 for a long time, and i have keep evolving dragons all the time but the bomb count did not grow.

25 is the limit. You need to use some if you want to save any more from your temple.

Now crafting, this is the final piece I need to do my final black dragon, Tigers Eye, not keeping the first one as I don't need another red black, however will likely end up with a second and have nothing to trade it for. Have already sold off the second garnet and the second sweet tooth, I just do not need duplicates!

DeeDe99

Congrats! I still have 2 hours and 45 minutes of crafting to go.

Are you going for 2? I have two Sweet Tooth and will have to sell one, they are rather useless really. About to get a second Night Imp, hope they can be traded.

I like this Abyss dragon, could even keep two of this.

I'll probably have another one, because I already have 23 bombs, but I hope that, this time I get mostly more than one piece.

Good luck DeeDee if you go as you gather for another one!

thank you for answering.
guess i have been missing out on at least two mining dragons then.

since other material in storage seemed to have upper limit of 99, i thought it was the same for bomb and dynamite as well. :p

Don't worry there will be another, I'm already up to 36 arts again I always get two of the mining dragons and could likely get three if I tried but I don't like to sit and do two hour breeding of air and evolve them all. I ditch most of my fails lol.

Up to 134 pieces now, mainly thanks to my pretty new Unicorn :D

Simdiva
12-11-15, 01:33 AM
Just traded off the first one and my final black dragon tigers eye is now crafting, glad to get that over with. For some reason been getting gobs of bombs so will have a second in no tie. Still not done my first night imp as I took a bit of a battle break but need to get busy on redoing my Color chart to make it reflect what I am using and be a bit more extensive than what usually posted. Hope to include magic and possibly rarity factors although my rarity beliefs are different from mist as I feel team lava changed the rules or game with the ultras.

12-19-15, 06:01 AM
I already have nearly 100 pieces for a second one, just because I don't want to waste any bombs (Sunrise fails are giving me quite a few bombs). I'm considering to go for a second Abyss dragon and to trade it... I just wish we knew for sure how long we'll have D:

Thanks Persezabar! Crafting now! This one is to be traded for the black onyx. As soon as this is on the nest, Jade starts crafting. I will need one more large black stone for the Onyx Dragon and two more for the other hybrid. Had to choose: Tiger's Eye, Onyx or Jade first......

I actually thought we would get the notification on Friday, but nope. Thank God because that means I can finish my second one in time :D (15 pieces missing)
I can't say for sure, but I think we'll get the pop up next week. So I guess it'll end next Friday or on 4th January.

12-27-15, 06:38 PM
I've crafted 2 dragons and have 44 pieces towards a third. Plus 20 bombs left to use. I'm past ready for this one to expire. Hopefully we'll get a notification about it soon. Then I'll put in my 48 hour evolving of Prime Eternal right before the new one hits! Give me a head start on the next one.... Even though I probably won't need a head start.

DeeDe99
12-27-15, 06:40 PM
If I'd known it was going to be around this long, I'd have gone for three. Infinity is about to finish evolving and those bombs are going into the great black cyber sky.

My avarage is about 2,2 pieces per bomb (and dynamite, too).
Just put my second Abyss in the trading portal, now one more large Emerald (spare Devil is evolving) and a Nether Dust and I can craft Jade :)
Abyss is now #1 in my pieces-found-per-dragon-list with 457 shards. That will be even more because I've got 16 bombs waiting and this dragon will expire next friday at earliest, I don't want to miss any possible food income.

Simdiva
12-28-15, 01:51 PM
I traded my Firestone to craft tigers eye, all the gemstones done now except for quarts just need one large pink or evolve the endless virtues I got recently NOT. the send is now crafting and will keep of course. Hoping it stays long enough that I can get 25 bombs stored and one of my diamonds cooked lol.

hiabarara
12-29-15, 03:19 AM
And I'm crafting my second one :o I have one or two other duplicates of mining dragons and I kept them (because they were Gemstone dragons and I don't have many of them yet), but I'm seriously considering to trade this one... I can use that large Onyx just as much as everyone else.

I'd need 57 more for a third, got a real good bomb boost from evolving 9 treasure dragons to level 7 :)
That would mean (theoratically) 26 bombs, if this dragon expires next tuesday that's going to be very tight. Not that I really need a third, but wouldn't mind that large onyx either. I still need to craft Tiger's Eye...

DeeDe99
01-01-16, 12:33 PM

I dont know if anyone has this Problem.
My game always breaks down after one time clearing the mine. Sometimes when i try for the second one and while i am bombing, my game breaks down and i lost a bomb with or without a stone or land.
Maybe u can imagine how many bombs i lost without a win coz my game broke Down.
i have the normal version of dragon story (android for galaxy tab) Special versions are always slow slower the slowest game ever and with only half of thr graphics.
i hope someone understood me

It's a known problem with this game. Restarting the device often helps for a while, ranging from a few hours to a few days. It definitely doesn't solve it but I can usually use five bombs until I have to force close and reload the app.
(but we all know that issues like these shouldn't actually be happening unless you're playing on something really old like my mum's Galaxy Fame)

The game updates on Tuesdays and Fridays. I can't recall ever seeing a Saturday update. But I'm sure someone will correct me if it has happened. But in my experience, if the game updates on a Tuesday and says the Dragon expires it will be on that Friday, in approximately 72 hours. But when the Dragon expires on a Tuesday, like the Azurite and Garnet Dragons just did, it tells you on the Friday update and it shows about 96 hours in the mines.

Bastiaan0
01-02-16, 03:31 PM
Guess I must have missed that 96 hour timer :confused:
But it definetly looks like I'm going to make it to the third without spending gold, incredible :cool:

01-02-16, 06:45 PM
Dang it, really could've gone for a third had I known this will be available for so long! I've been wasting bombs after having crafted my second for about 2+ weeks now because I didn't want extra pieces in my storage... but now I'm pulling my hair out. Don't really need black gems anymore but it's nice to have a couple extras just in case they introduce a new one in the future. Oh well..

Do you seriously stop evolving your dragons to save bombs? But that seems like such a waste :eek: I always have so many dragons in my Evolution Temple queue that I simply can't afford it to let it be idle.

Ditto!!! The bomb supply is endless on my island. 67 waiting at level 3 and another 24 waiting at level 6 plus 5 waiting at level 9.

most of my dragons are lvl 10 , those who are still lvl 7-9 need to much food to lvl10 and i want to save the food for the dragons i want to lvl15
i don't have much luck with breeding dragons recently : lots of common dragons and i don't trade them, only rare or super rare so i need to spare the bombs to the future mining dragons.
some dragons won't never evolve because i really dislike the epic form (thankgiving, boo, spider,...) when their baby form is so lovely
so my waiting list for evolution is getting shorter after each mining dragon :D

i don't need gems, spell scrolls, nether dust because i got already all the crafting dragons (remember gemstone dragons can not be traded) and i can craft scrolls and dust whenever i want : lots of small and large gems of all colors :D
besides max food you get from the mining dragons is 500 apples when mining for island part can give 1000 apples

this is an idea i like ! you can submit to TL/s8, though i don't think they will ever let us do LOL
but i totally understand your feelings about evolution temple : i remember the time when i got lots of dragons waiting for the temple LOL
with time you are becoming patient LOL

251 unique dragons minus 179 epics equals 72 dragons which are not epic...
11 gold givers at level 7, not to be fed very soon;
4 at level 3;
2 at level 6 (one is evolving);
1 hatching and
53 at level 9 waiting for apples and temple time.
Since I started this list (long time ago ;)), it is always growing...

Back to Abyss: Still no sign of expiration. Looks like TL/S8 either forgot or skipped changing this dragon in december :D
Anyway, I'm crafting my third Abyss right now :) And if we actually get double time on this I can make it to the fourth, I still need one more large Onyx...

As for me, I say, let the next dragon be a super rare pink hybrid. Quartz is the last gemstone dragon after Tiger's Eye for my island ;)

Oh God, you're right. I was waiting for a new Tournament or something and totally forgot about the mining dragon. So it'll still be there until at least next Tuesday, ughh.
But a new pink dragon would be amazing! I'm currently breeding for new pink dragons because I rarely get any.

01-05-16, 05:34 PM
Yeah when are they gonna end this? I've held back on evolving as I don't want to do it while just bombing for extra food and parts and then when I need more bombs for the new dragon I have none ready to evolve. It's been 6 weeks. Time for a new one.

I am really happy that it is still here...because I haven`t crafted this dragon...I need 30 pieces more to do it... I don`t know how u did it...cause everytime when I evolve my dragons...I should wait 19 hours...just to receive 3 bombs... it is awful :(

If your Evolution Temple is constantly busy, then it should be no problem. You should also take a look from time to time how many bombs you already have because the maximum is 25 bombs. Keep evolving, keep bombing and you should get there. I rarely use gold to speed up evolutions. Maybe you need to find a good mining strategy? I usually get ~ 3 pieces with every bomb (sometimes only 2 pieces, sometimes even 4).
When I started mining for the dragons I had a hard time as well. But with some practice you should easily get them, too :)

I agree! Have 2 & know if I start mining, I'll end up with pcs left in storage with all the others that can't be used.

I just started crafting my second Abyss dragon. This is a first time I have actually managed to craft two mining dragons of the same type.
Good thing! I can use more onyxes to craft a Tiger's Eye dragon.

I wasn't trying for the second - I just keep evolving dragons constantly.
I have 105 dragons level 10-15 out of 435. That means 330 dragons still need to evolve (even if it is just to level 4 for trading).
Once I crafted the current mining dragon, I use enough bombs so I'll have 25 once the currently evolving dragon is done. I get some food, coins or extra crafting pieces in my storage, but what difference does it make if I have 28 or 156 extra pieces - unlike real storage, more pieces take up no more space than less.

Averaging 3? Wow, I'm doing something wrong. I average slightly over 2. Just started crafting my 2nd on my 2nd island this morning, so I'm really happy about that. Any tips you can share?

This is a really, really great post! I never knew this post existed, but that's exactly how I do it. Couldn't have written it better. It does sound pretty difficult to be honest, but it's an incredibly easy strategy.

I read that post ages ago and try really hard but you can guarantee I'll always need the 4.7 hits! Drives me nuts! I usually get two, sometimes 3, rarely 4 and rarely 0. So Nicsdragonisle, you are not alone!

I need to replicate the grid iPad size. That's what I need to do.

DeeDee, make sure if you mine on different devices that you do a grid for each device. The grid does shift.

DeeDe99
01-07-16, 05:10 PM
Thanks Roguebee good point. I usually only mine on the iPad, although sometimes I think the S6 is easier. Of course it isn't really! No spreadsheet for mining, maybe that's my problem! ;)

roguebee
01-07-16, 08:04 PM
I learned the hard way. One would assume that it is the same grid for an iPad and an iPhone... wrong! That's why I posted those pics on the mining thread.

Very helpful! As are the comments, thank you!! Answered a few of my lingering questions. And, I didn't realize iPad grid would be different -- though now that I think about it, I should have. Sometimes I wonder if a smack on the head would improve my thought processes... The one thing I tend to do - for better or worse, is tap a space directly near my prize hit before moving to the 'start' section. I've found about 25-30 % of the time, the 2nd piece is a 'near' or 'very close' to the 1st prize.
Im excited for the next mining dragon! I think I'll shoot for 2 straight away now that I know I can do it. Thanks everyone!!

I just KNEW this would happen! LOL

I got two early on, stayed OUT of the mine so as not to accumulate pieces even though I could do with another Onyx. When it was STILL here earlier this week, I thought why not, mad late dash for a third. And I have Eternal in the evolution temple for another 36 hours and I am sitting on 90-something pieces. Can I get 110 before the 12th? This will be interesting!

This is the first time I've ever been able to craft 2 of the mining dragons! Excited to trade for a large black gem, I don't have Onyx or Jade yet. I just recently crafted Tiger's Eye (chose him over Onyx, I think he's cuter).

Well, did you make it? I managed to find a grand total of 649 pieces, thus crafting 3 Abyss' and trading two for that large Onyx.
Very curious what the next will be, I have 20 bombs waiting.

I ended up making three Abyss Dragons, but spent a little bit of Gold doing so. Not a waste, I suppose, considering I was able to evolve a couple of Dragons that have been waiting a long time for it.I was just too close to the third to not go for it.

I should have started a couple of days earlier - I NEARLY made it, but was SO close in the end I spent 80 gold for 20 bombs - still a very cheap large Onyx! So yes, I got the third.
