Absolutely stunning, idol and malachite will fight over her lol. Great work again flatfoot it truly looks like an opal! Ashamed to admit I only got 40 pieces from just under 30 bombs. Not my day today in the mines! Does the walk of shame back to the caves.

02-09-16, 03:56 PM
64 opal stones for me so far...

49 pieces from the 25 bombs stored and the other 7 bombs from Knightmare, which I had waiting patiently after evolving. I'm off to a pretty good start..

Good luck everyone!

I'm pretty floored right now, I got 86 stones with 35 bombs!:eek:
Now it makes getting Blast (my Demolition Dragon) all the more worth it. I hope to have this sweet dragon in no time!

Beautiful dragon, love the colors :)
Too bad the timer isn't there, but I won't miss it as I was always able to craft at least one mining dragon. Guess that half of this thread will consist of questions about when this dragon will expire :rolleyes:
I now have 57 opal stones, out of 26 bombs. Perfectly normal, in my case.

This dragon is great.

Maybe the next mining dragon can be a cosmic hybrid? We can be mining some kind of space rock or something

99 pieces of opal for me,(one short of the half way mark) and with quite a few dragons waiting to be evolved, I'll be able to get the rest that I need!!

Good luck everyone!!!!!

I think the timer feature on the mining page is cool.. please continue to include this feature for this and future mining events. Thank you! :P

Does anyone know when this will end.
I just don't do well with mining. Even using the grid I can't get a better average than about 1.2 per bomb.

roguebee
02-16-16, 03:18 PM
This close to the release of the dragon it would be all speculation. That said, we've never had less than 28 days to mine for a dragon (9 times). The rest of the times we've had a minimum of 31/32 days with one outlier at 49 days. So plan on March 8th to have it done, but hope for another 3 days.

silverybunny
02-16-16, 04:52 PM
Thank you then I may be able to do. Fingers crossed!

Niire
02-16-16, 05:23 PM
Evolve, evolve!! I can always get at least one of these, and luck usually runs for me like for you. :) Just keep something on the evolution chamber at all times, and you're golden (oh, and be sure to mine before you go over 25 bombs! My mom does that all the time, lol!).

Bastiaan0
02-17-16, 01:19 PM
The mine was rather generous today, got 52 opal stones from 21 bombs :)
I now have 156, will be crafting this dragon sometime next week.

02-17-16, 05:00 PM
Gee bastion, you and I are right on par, my mine was good to me today too and guess what I shot right up to 156 lol. I had been on 130 but ten bombs gave me a bunch.

I'm so very slow.I bearly step to half of it,106.I lost so many bombs just because my game shouts down when I get in to mine. I'm so unhappy because of that.

I know it is so frustrating! My does that also but usually when I have about 2 moves left so not only do I loose the bomb but the pieces I had managed to find. :(

02-21-16, 08:38 AM
Mine so far hasn't crashed on me, but it does when I visit neighbors randomly. It's also crashed when I try for quetzal dragon (20 second fail count, as it did when I was trying for crusader). But, came here to say...199/200! 20 hours, and this beautiful dragon shall be on the griddle! :D

I'm sorry your mines are haters...:(

Finally hatched, it's beautiful even as a baby! I'm already up to 50 pieces and sitting on 13 booms guess another is in my future even tho I don't need t be parts. I finally put my final crafting dragon, Quartz on the nest last night. Such a relief! I have tons of spare large gems except pink lol. Even lots of black!what I am a bit shy on now because if the last event is small black gems but could muster some quickly if needed. I still have one left and could get four on short notice. I rarely keep rare dragons so they are just waiting to trade. The only rares I normally keep are non breed ab.es and the ones I really live. Just don't have room for them, heck I trade off some supers if I don't like them! Recently got rid of elements when I finished sweater, felt soon good. How I hated that dragon! Anyhow I know I am off topic!

Anyone know what time (Pacific) on March 1 that Opal mining expires?

And may I request that a timer be placed back in the mine for all mine dragons? It was so helpful.

Thanks so much, Storm8/Team/Lava Programmers & Designers!!!

Yeah, crafted mine and it's on the nest now. I had difficulty with pieces in this one so it took me a long time to get to the 200.

03-04-16, 10:23 PM
Awesome, Hepatu. i don't know how you manage so many dragons (the crafting ones). :) I usually get one, 2 if it's got a large black gem and is tradable, lol...this one? I could get 1 1/2 maybe, heehee. You get 2 here, 4 of the groom (I think), just awesome! :)

Hepatu
03-04-16, 10:54 PM
Yea, but it's getting a bit crowded over here too, so I'll have to trade some dragons soon ☺

03-05-16, 02:18 PM
Only need 15 more opals, but waiting on more bombs. Haven't started the Tales event yet so hopefully I'll be ok crafting my dragon before I need to craft for the event.

Bastiaan0
03-07-16, 01:52 PM
157 Opal Stones, 17 bombs and 25 hours evolving ready before expiration: yes, I can have a second Opal, but I won't. Saving bombs for the new mining dragon, hoping there will be a large quartz in there ;) Besides that I need the spell shop for the tales.

Niire
03-07-16, 03:36 PM
I'm in a similar boat as you Bastiaan, I have 24 bombs saved, my 30 hour silver screen evolving (Aladdin is level 12 already), and over 100 opal pieces, but I already have one, waiting for the next one to come out to mine my heart out. :) Think I may make a treasure hoard on the crafter, since it's a few days till the rug needs to be made, and I think I have all the pieces...I want more deco that I may never use dangit! LOL

Congratulations! You'll soon be aiming for two of each! :)

Thank you! I managed to get 3 Grooms (and I love them and their super-high coin outputs), but battling is a *lot* easier than mining! Even after studying that excellent guide, I still only average maybe 1.75 pieces per attempt. And no Demolition dragon for me! But it's a learning process, I know.

I wonder what the next mining dragon will be? He'll have a lot to live up to, compared to Opal's beauty!

I've got mine evolving to 7 finally. Really want to see it at 10. No Tales evolving for a few days as Aladdin is already 10, so using the down time to evolve a few others. Opal was top of the list.

As far as I know about 4 hours after expiration of the current one. Don't know exactly, usually I'm asleep when the new dragon arrives (about 2:30 pm PST).

I know, right? I have a full storage of bombs, silver screen 30 hour evolve on the nest ready...I actually love to mine, as weird as that sounds.

Opal will be evolving next for sure, probably right after I pull silver screen off the nest in fact. Aladdin is already 14. :D

I'm pretty excited about this one. Looks great. I ran short of getting two opals... when they put up the notice I was far enough away that I started saving bombs for the next dragon.

I could've sworn i had time to craft two abyss dragons. Was opal a short one, or am I making things up?
