I know they like to wait to tell us when they expire but since they are trying something new it would be nice if they could let us know?

Edit: Going for Stalactite first, I like him more :)

Wow! We need 300 pieces to craft both! That's hard, very hard work for those without a Bomb-dragon!

And they're both cute! Atleast, as babies...

I hope they give us twice as long for these ones, we'll need it.

What a coincidence that there is a new bomb producing dragon on sale. ;-)

This is an easy choice for me: I'll craft stalagmite first and go for the other one if there's time.

As long as we have the same amount of time as the last few I should be able to get both. I'm never not evolving so I've been able to get two each of the last few mining dragons even without a bomb producing dragon. Def want the blue one first :D

I hope so too!!! Without a bomb producing dragon, and being a lousy miner, I only just manage to get one crafting dragon before time's up. I'm going to struggle to get these two in the usual timeframe.

Is the mine not open for anyone else? The dragons are in the craft shop but the mine isn't open.

Another vote for Stalagmite. I like the body style of Stalagtite, but those horns hanging down on its head are, well, fugly.

Won't have any problems crafting both, even without BPD. Which one to craft first? Doesn't matter. They're both nice :)

That's what I told my sister. I'm getting both, it doesn't matter which is first.

I've never collected enough to craft more than one dragon. In fact, I often struggle at the end to get enough for one. I'm going to try since I like them both but I'll go for Stalactite first...he's a different looking dragon. :)

06-15-16, 12:58 AM
Definitely going for both.... Which one first don't matter. Don't have a BPD.. But no matter .... Ahh the evolution temple is going to be working overtime. Have a long queue of dragons waiting to be evolved.
Wish they could give us another evolution temple.
Sorry if this is common knowledge but does evolving Arctic isle Dragons give you bombs?

BlackKat9
06-15-16, 02:52 AM
Going for both. 300 pieces should be possible. It's nice to get the chance for two dragons this time, great change! I'm going for Stalactite first.

As far as I know only the main island evolution temple will give you bombs. I haven't seen an increase during the leaderboard event, the only time I use the Arctic isles rift now.

Niire
06-15-16, 03:05 AM
I like both, but will do stalactite first. The horns...actually, I think they're perfect for that dragon. Stalactites drip and form stalagmites, his horns drooping like that is so fitting. :)

hiabarara
06-15-16, 04:40 AM
I'll go for Stalactite first. Stalagmite has a really normal form, so I find Stalactite more interesting.

I actually never considered such an idea - To be able to choose between two dragons. It's a nice and new idea. I think 300 should be possible, even without BPD. I managed to get multiple of the 200 pieces dragons (now I'm not doing that anymore; I'm way too lazy for that :D), so it should be doable.
I'm only worried how much they'll increase the amount of pieces. Many people write they have hundreds of bombs ready, so maybe that's the plan all along and soon we'll need 300 pieces for one dragon and they have two or three available in the mine :rolleyes:

Niire
06-15-16, 04:49 AM
Yea, I don't have any BPD's, and pretty certain I can get both. I have sooo many dragons that need evolving, lol.

Wanted to edit...and add that this is a great idea, gives those of us who are hardcore evolvers, or folks who have BPD's, we can get 2 different dragons either way. Pretty much anyone with enough time and determination can get em. :)

31aug2002
06-15-16, 04:54 AM
Hope they increase the time required to get them both . As for number of pieces they have reduced it per dragon.
I remember collecting 200 for the cursed idol.. Which was my first mining dragon I crafted.
The last one, the Trinket dragon , had to collect 170 only .
Even in the battle arena the number of pieces required has been reduced from 99 to 70 if I remember correctly

How nice of u to think of me lol

But yea, they usually stay around a month or so, so you're fine

I no longer worry about the time available as I can easily get enough pieces within minutes. The time when I had to plan carefully with my bombs is long over, as well as the time I worry about the availability time is also over.

52 pieces from my first 23 bombs, lost 2 bombs to crashes. Only way for me to get both is to keep the evolution temple running full-time and preventing crashes and bomb overflows.

Kennedward
06-21-16, 06:50 AM
I used around 100 bombs to get my 300 pieces required, which on average that's 3 pieces per bomb, and that's much better than before i had 5 Demolition dragons, and also I was tapping randomly, unlike before where I was planning carefully.

Strange how things happen that way :cool:

I am so far behind :D I always forget about the mine and then my bombs will reach their limit of 25 bombs and I'll lose some :D I only have about ~ 100 pieces for the first dragon. Let's see if I'll get them both :)

moonchild1987
06-28-16, 11:14 AM
I'm doing alright on these two. I have Stalagmite on the nest but still need 110 pieces for Stalactite. I should have enough time, well I hope I have enough time to get them both.

DragonPhoenix6
06-28-16, 04:12 PM
Great work S8! I love the fact that we know can craft 2 different dragons with the same pieces, super clever idea! :D

I will try to craft 2 of each as we only need 150 pieces for each, to get 600 pieces shouldn't be too difficult!

jaymieb2
06-28-16, 05:32 PM
S8 - thank you for reducing the total number of bombs necessary! I usually can craft one dragon at 200 pieces, and then stop trying because I cannot collect another 200 pieces before the mining dragon changes. If I keep on target, I should be able to collect 300 if I really try! :-)

Hi everyone. I crafted the stalagmite dragon. When it was done I tried to place it in a habitat and nothing happened. There were no arrows over available habitats. Nothing. Can't find the dragon anywhere. It's as if it was never crafted. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I wonder how much time we're going to have... I know we are given only a few days notice usually, but I've got one and I'd love to get the other, but I'm still short about a 100 pieces... And for some reason my mining skills have been horrible and I'm just not getting a ton per bomb. :(

We roughly get a month, so should be around until the 14th at least, 39 pieces to go for the 2nd dragon

Lucky you! I always run out of dragons to evolve, and my luck with the mine was always bad in the past, and I ended up missing many mining dragons

But now that I have 5 Demolition dragons, my luck have actually improved greatly and I easily get all required pieces within minutes after its release

Finally have Stalacite on the nest now building up my bomb supply again. I wonder if this idea of a duo of mining dragons is here to stay! Seemed a bit stressful this time round but as a dear neighbour pointed out to me is that we only need to collect 10 parts per day but it is the food resources that worry me.

The players that also have to evolve to level 4, will never run out dragons to evolve! And if we do we can always choose to trade a duplicate... For us the bomb producers are useless. I can even make a 3th dragon already, if I wish...

I must admit, I am a little jealous that you have all dragons @lvl10+ and your only issue seems to be space and have available habitats to spare. I would say that is the only way I could use the term "game completed" in regards to this app. Congrats!

That would be a welcomed issue to most players if that was the only problem they had to deal with, space. That is the one thing I dont seem to be struggling with in this app. Is space an issue due to decorations? What part of the aspect of "space" gives you trouble? Have you fully expanded everything? I am just curious. I still have a good amount of expanding left. I am assuming that since #of habitats not being listed as an issue implies you still have plenty available. I am at 180/182 due to just buying a bunch to make room for more unique dragons as I acquire them. I have a small "farm" area of habitats I use for duplicates where they can be raised to lvl4 then traded for gems. That is also where a lot of my bomb producing comes from. It is still slow though as I have crafted one dragon and 1/3 the way on another. I also have terrible luck with locating pieces per bomb. I consider finding 2 pieces good and any more than that awesome. Something closer to opposite of minesweeper would be amazing where the pieces are all there at once. Having to find peice by peice with location resetting after each peice found is both troublesome and inefficient.

Tales slows down my evolution quite a bit. But that is my choice to make sure its ready for those dragons that need to be raised to lvl12+. Also, TL has been upping time required to evolve. In addition to overall slow speed of gathering food to level the dragons I want (there are a few); but I have to make sure I am keeping a large supply for tales events.

I need to add you sometime and take a look at your islands (regular+artic). The way your islands are described by your posts, they are possibly what every player desires their island(s) to be. Im still crossing my fingers I can get access to dragon album and artic isles at some point and hopefully I get the opportunity to acquire the dragons previously not available to me.

Edit: I have sent you a neighbor request and saw the island name "King Gor", is that correct? Mine is Dragburk. I look forward to seeing your islands. (I hope the game doesn't crash when visiting your Artic Isles as that is a common issue for me). I will post to your wall and/or send you a message once I have taken a look at your isles. If I can help in any way, please ask. Also, please check out my island and let me know if you have any suggestions/comments as well. Thank you and looking forward to further communication and info that we might be able to share and help other users as well!

Again, congratulations on what is the closest thing to completing the objectives of the app. Hopefully that space issue is fixed for you at some point.

Thanks, but I doubt it, I'm always at the edge of expanding my land, and when I do have space it becomes a matter of what dragons I want to bring out and then build the corresponding color habitat

Will you please provide the details to your strategy. I am still struggling and I have read that I am not the only one. Can you bypass the 25 bomb limit? What is the secret to be able to obtain 300 pieces in 10 minutes. I know you have said previously that you dont purchase gold, so I am asking what is the method you use to obtain these 2 dragons in 10 minutes without using real money? If you can write up a guide or provide tips for other players, that would be amazing and extremely helpful to all other players.

Thank you in advance for your help! It will be greatly appreciated, and by others as well.

I dont have any, I just tap randomly and I get 3 to 4, sometimes even 5 or 6 pieces per bomb

I no longer care for bombs as I have around 800 right now, so I don't care even if I get none from 1 bomb, which doesn't even happen anymore lol

From having 5 demolition dragons

So the demolition dragons allow you to bypass the 25 max bomb limit?

Considering they are not breedable and allow a massive advantage over other players.....I don't want to express my opinion of that at this moment......I do, but I like to be able to use the forum...

I need to do some more research into this and find the facts and truth behond this. That is a seriously unfair advantage over those who do not spend real money on an app that is supposed to be for enjoyment. The weight of the straws piling on is compounding on this old camel.

07-06-16, 08:20 AM
People have asked me why I bought 5, and some have said to me they are not considering buying them because they can always get bombs without any problems

But I don't regret buying them. Being able to have hundreds of bombs have allowed me to mine freely without caring how many pieces I get per bomb, that freedom alone is worth it for me.

Granted I don't need hundreds of bombs, but it's better than before when I would struggle to get enough pieces before the deadline. And I have missed quite a lot of mining dragons because I was so bad with mining with only 25 bombs max.

Funny how I earn many more pieces when I no longer play as seriously and no longer care for bombs anymore

Anyways, back on topic, good luck to all still mining, not sure when it'll be expired but I have over 800 bombs waiting for the next one :cool:

Kennedward, or to other who have a BPD, by how much does your bomb cap increase when you have one BPD? Thanks

Will you please provide the details to your strategy. I am still struggling and I have read that I am not the only one. Can you bypass the 25 bomb limit? What is the secret to be able to obtain 300 pieces in 10 minutes. I know you have said previously that you dont purchase gold, so I am asking what is the method you use to obtain these 2 dragons in 10 minutes without using real money? If you can write up a guide or provide tips for other players, that would be amazing and extremely helpful to all other players.

Thank you in advance for your help! It will be greatly appreciated, and by others as well.

I've bought 2 bomb producing dragons in the year I've been playing DS, and when they were introduced, the price was gr8! I also have 5 gold producing dragons that I got @ different major sales, Black Friday, etc. I quickly evolved all of these to lvl 10 to obtain max # daily. I get 25 gold daily & save it to avoid buying more. By having 1 bomb or dynamite PD, the limit of 25 increases immediately! I don't have the mining experience that Kennedward & other longtime players have but have stored 100+ bombs/dynamite. Before I got my 1st BPD, I lost so many bombs as I never ck'd unless needed. Keep an eye on pop-ups & the mkt & try to buy next time on sale. I love the Mining Guide on forum! Great help! Good luck to all! Hope there's at least 7-10 days left on current mining dragons since they started on June 14th.

I have one. You can keep collecting bombs from it, there is no cap that I know of. I usually have 60-70 bombs by the time a new mine dragon comes out. My demolition dragon is only level 7 so I collect 2 bombs a day from it.

I do!

But the original reason why I bought 5 was because I was so bad with mining, with 25 bombs I used to only get 16 to 18 pieces, so I thought earning 25 bombs daily would allow me to be at least on time to get enough pieces to craft the dragon.

Little did I know that after getting 5 of them, I managed to get at least 3 pieces per bomb now, and I only used around 70 to 80 bombs to get all 300 pieces for these 2 dragons.

That is incredible! You have amazing luck and if you are of legal age to buy lottery tickets, I suggest you do, it could work out greatly in your favor. Keep up the good luck and hope you are getting out of this app what you are intending too. It seems like your investments into Dragon Story are certainly paying off for you.

Thx but I asked 2 years ago but got nothing, so I don't have much hopes for it

As a matter of fact, I actually stopped playing for over a year, all I did was plant food and get gold. I only came back to play again because of the bomb dragons.

There was no notice last Friday that the dragons expire on Tuesday, so you have at least 4 full days and 2 partial days to collect more bombs (somewhere between 25 & 30 more bombs?) assuming that they expire next Friday.

No. We always get notice of the mining dragon expiring. The notice comes out at update time that it will expire the next update day. So it is possible that we will get a notice tomorrow that it expires on Tuesday. (That will be 35 days which is common.) If there is no notice, then we'll get until at least next Friday.

I think everyone has gotten the point the spend a ton on of money on this game and someone you never need new dragons and all your dragon arrive fully evolved with a red bow and you just have that space issue because you have expanded everything available and also have conquered the game.
You are in the 1% that have this kind of experience and interaction with the app. There mpre people that struggle with keeping up with the events, tournaments, and just trying to enjoy the app as they see fit. Food storage is a large kssue for many players because they do not have a bottomless storage and/or all of their dragons at epic or above. Please take into consideration that most other users do not experience the app as you. And by the comments you make such as the one quoted here just give off the vibe that you high and mighty and the that the app should cater to your experience and not the experiences of the majority. Especially those who do not spend a lot of money on the app and want to enjoy it as a relaxing app that provides quick entertainment and a sense of accomplishment when completing goals or obtaining a new dragon and allows them to do their "happy dance" in that moment before going back to the grind for the goal.
All I am asking is little more support and a lot less condenscending remarks. Again, this will probably be removed, so what I say doesnt matter anyways.
Good luck to those who are working towards the dragons and congratulations for those who have worked hard to earn them.

Game used to give free gold, most of the time it was 30 gold and then 15 gold, but it doesn't anymore

It appears so. The only time I have been offered gold was when S8 wanted me to download another of their games and you are correct, it went from 30 to 14. But outside of that, very few opportunites to earn gold and it was a miniscule amount. We dont even get gold for defeating champions in tournaments anymore do we? But I will take my ignorance elsewhere. I apologize for bothering you.

Only need 5 more for the second one!! I don't have a bomb producing dragon and I haven't spent any gold either, what I do is I save up all my feed until there is a Tales event and when I finish with that I use the leftover feed to feed my dragons and get as many of them ready to evolve as I can. When I run out I start saving up my feed again until the next Tales event. (so basically the only time my dragons get fed is after a tales event :/) This time, after the last tales event I leveled up and had around 30 dragons ready to evolve and have saved up 499,000 feed for this Tales event.

Yeah I understand you, I was like you who missed quite a lot of mining dragons simply because I didn't get enough pieces from bombs, and add on top of that I didn't have dragons to evolve in order to get bombs PERIOD

I remember suggesting to have another way to get bombs, like the bpd's, luckily S8 listened and introduced them

I evolve during leader boards now, since that gets points, but my answer to collecting bombs has been to buy water dragon eggs and sell them at level 4; they don't require much food to evolve. But I don't often speed breed (since I never seem to breed anything but dupes anyway), so my 2nd nest was usually open for that.

That's not a bad way to get bombs, I actually used to do that in the past, since there's just so many coins but nothing to spend them on

Go for it. You don't HAVE to craft anything in Tales until Day 4. Option to start crafting disappears when mine closes. If started in time, crafting can continue once option disappears.

I evolve during leader boards now, since that gets points, but my answer to collecting bombs has been to buy water dragon eggs and sell them at level 4; they don't require much food to evolve. But I don't often speed breed (since I never seem to breed anything but dupes anyway), so my 2nd nest was usually open for that.
That is a good way to get bombs, but my problem is that I don't get to evolve at level 4. My first evolution is level 7, and there is always a huge food increase for all dragons after level 4 :-(

So I have crafted both stalactite and stalagmite (they are both at level 4) and I have enough parts to craft one more. Which one should I craft?

Thanks to Storm8 double piece weekend my Stalagtite is crafting. I already have the Stalagmite but lost a week of playing thanks to Google. I didn't think I had enough time to get both. Luckily I was wrong. Good luck to all who are still collecting pieces. I think this dragon is available until 10:30am PDT if I'm not mistaken. If I am, feel free to edit.

It was a great help to get 2 pieces at once every time! I managed to get Stalagmite finally (already crafted Stalactite). I'm not sure if I would have made it without this "event" weekend, so it was really, really helpful :)
