After the last dragon tales I have been feeding my infinity metal and glasswing trying to level them up... So I am absolutely low on food. Will wait for it to auto start .
Also I don't know how far I will go as this weekend is Diwali festival and will bee busy in the festivities.

Happy Diwali everyone..

I will be skipping this Tales because I have zero interest in any of these dragons. Ugh.
It came at a good time, at least- I'm completely burnt out on events and need a break.

I'm not starting until it makes me, even then, I need to see the to do list to see if I'm going to do it or feed my champs up. At least this time I'm starting at 177k of food - last time it was 86k. Either way, lots of food to feed dragons that I don't want at that level.

Not crazy about these dragons. Would have loved to continue the theme of the Dark One and his minions instead!

What's the easiest dragon to breed that can be traded for a small onyx? You need it to craft a Wandering Spirit.

JDanil07
10-28-16, 02:06 PM
It's likely I won't be able to finish the first task of Day 1 til the current tournament ends (my next battle opponent is Corrupt Stalwart), so I'll wait and build up my food supply, and try to get a Luck egg ready on the spare nest.

Happy Diwali everyone..
I'm with you guys. Too many events back-to-back, and even simultaneously, so I have a lot of new dragons to hatch and feed. I'm sitting this one out. Good luck to those that take part - they are fabulous looking dragons!

Any black type dragon that is Rare and not Super Rare (those give large onyx gems when traded). The problem is that there are no "Common" black dragons, not even Night :(

The funny thing is in the spell shop when you click for information on the black onyx, it says you get it from trading common black hybrids! (FYI- that spider dragon we just won is rare... may be an idea for those of us who already have one...)

Had the same problem this afternoon. Force closed, updated the app, rebooted my device, didn't work. Then I uninstalled Dragon Story, and reinstalled it, and it worked. Hope this will fix things for you too. Don't be scared you'll loose your game, as long as you have your account-name and password (same you use for this site), you'll be fine.

That's going to be a problem. I bred Night once by accident (had to sell it because I didn't have a habitat) and once again on purpose, but most of the time when I'm trying for a black hybrid, the colors split. I hate to trade any of my blacks, but I hate more to spend gold to complete the Tales.

Since Storm 8 has chosen in its infinite wisdom not to listen to high level players about needing a way to get food for tales and because the dragons are of zero interest I and my fellow seniors with four accounts won't be participating.

I would like to see an opt out button for events. I don't think I should have to be reminded of events I'm not interested in six times a day.

I love that idea of an opt out button - it could not only remove the splash screen reminders of the event, but also the icon on the right of the screen. Often it gets so crowded over there lately that I don't even realise there is an offer or a spin wheel or something that I hadn't seen before.

As for this event, while it appears more achievable than some I have seen, it eats way too much food, ties up the nests, and doesn't allow any chance to level up some of the beautiful dragons from previous events. There needs to be a balance, and an opt out button would help us achieve that.

wookiee77
10-28-16, 05:46 PM
I'm with most here, so many events and bingos and I'm burnt out... Very little food, being locked in to plant and harvest specific things really takes its toll and not too fussed with these dragons, so it's good timing...

Also think an opt out would be a great idea, but of course won't happen as it drives away business and chance to get gold off players!

anaghasaki
10-28-16, 05:57 PM
I like the fact that S8 is now giving more food as prize for higher levels.. 26000 food seems nice..
My plan: start tomorrow and complete till day 2, since I am not participating, I have nothing to loose if I start early.. I can craft the first dragon and then trade it.. No loss on food there but will gain 6000 food as prize for day 2..

I don't think you can trade tales dragons. I just looked at some of mine and they can't be traded.

I'm gonna skip this tales because I don't like the first 2 dragons and don't want to waste the food on dragons I don't like, let alone raise them to high levels. Such a shame because I like the grand prize dragon. I'm just gonna play normally.

How in the world do y'all build up your food in between Tales?? Also is it me, or are they coming about every 10 days to 2 weeks now with tournaments and leaderboards running simultaneously? I could have sworn they were once a month when I first started playing about 6-7 months ago. I don't have room on my island for more habitats, and I don't have the coins to clear the 800,000 coin trees that I have expanded to due to trying to build up some food to complete the Tales. Now that I have to do the high level Tales (level 96) it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, for me to complete without spending a lot of gold on trying to get more food. :( I think I'm out on this one (and the next one if I can't build up my food stores). I can't even raise up my other dragons at all due to the extreme food shortages.

I can't even raise up my other dragons at all due to the extreme food shortages.

How to build up food: Only feed dragons on Tuesdays and Fridays after the event start time, and do not let your food total dip below 50,000 (unless feeding during a tales). I always have more than 100,000 food at the start day of an event by using this strategy. If the event is not food intensive, I feed whatever dragons I like. If it's a tales, I save my food for the dragons in the tales. During the tales, I boost my food supply by planting 10 minute crops while watching primetime tv.

This allows me to have enough food for tales, and even allows me to feed some of the other dragons on my island. (For those events for which evolving is needed, I only feed on Tuesday/Friday the lower dragons up to evolving age to have as many ready to evolve as possible. I usually have a few from an event that I've forgotten and left at level 4!)

Same. Would like an opt-out button for the Bingo game which holds no interest for me since so many of the tasks are literally impossible at high level (clear a this-or-that? Haven't encountered one that needed clearing in years!) I've tried the renew feature, but always get the same task again. Wish it would just go away.

Sitting out this tales as well after day 2. Just such overload lately, plus the game took 500 gold from me right before the bingo game first came out, and no response at all to my email inquiry. So frustrated lately, may just delete altogether.

I missed out on quite a few of the final prize dragons until I could build up my food supplies.

For me, I don't find 100,000 food to be enough - I need around 200,000 before starting a Tales.
And yes, that is ridiculous :confused:

I only plant Diamondates, but if you can play more often and plant Rushrooms that helps.
But of course that's expensive too!

Not just you, events have gotten bad in the past year. I appreciated the once a month events because we could actually build food up for the tales and still evolve a few select dragons - this was just after 11-15 levels were introduced, which raised food prices for even past dragons prior to level 10. Once a month was just enough to keep things interesting, and we had more than enough time to build food up. Then we had every other week events, alternating between tales and world events. Still doable, but this was when they started reducing our free gold and making tales harder (more food requirements, mostly). But we could still make enough food for tales, and maybe feed one of our battle arena dragons a few times. Then they started the very frequent tales, increasing the levels we needed to get the dragons to (meaning more food) and the past two tales they even increased the skip feeding to level 14 for the first dragon from about 78 gold to 150.
I actually have time during the day to sit there and repeatedly plant, harvest, and replant upgrapes all day and I still barely make enough food to complete the tales (prior to the past two times I skipped feeding to lvl 14 so I could partially level one of my battle arena dragons) and have a bit left over. But the rewards aren't even worth what you spend on feeding the tales dragons even more. 26,000 food (what you get this event) is nothing compared to what you spend to level up the two dragons. The price of gold to skip feeding to level 14 is wayyyy too high now, and we don't even get gold as rewards anymore.
But the easiest way to make the most amount of food is to set timers, and plant depending on your free time. You can make a lot more food in an hour by planting upgrapes repeatedly compared to one round of rushrooms. You can also make a heck of a lot more food by repeatedly planting upgrapes for 5 hours compared to planting one round of diamondates. If you only have time to check once an hour then plant rushrooms, you'll make a bit less than double compared to planting one round of diamondates. Mix and match depending on the free time you have and what time you're actually willing to spend on the game.

How to build up food: Only feed dragons on Tuesdays and Fridays after the event start time, and do not let your food total dip below 50,000 (unless feeding during a tales). I always have more than 100,000 food at the start day of an event by using this strategy. If the event is not food intensive, I feed whatever dragons I like. If it's a tales, I save my food for the dragons in the tales. During the tales, I boost my food supply by planting 10 minute crops while watching primetime tv.

This allows me to have enough food for tales, and even allows me to feed some of the other dragons on my island. (For those events for which evolving is needed, I only feed on Tuesday/Friday the lower dragons up to evolving age to have as many ready to evolve as possible. I usually have a few from an event that I've forgotten and left at level 4!)

I wish it was this easy for me. I have only 3 dragons ready to evolve from 6 to 7, no other dragons on my island are below that besides baby forest dragons for bingo (cheap feeding and quick evolving), and level 3 air, water, olympus, and light dragons ready to evolve for leaderboard events. I am completely unable to level any other dragons unless I deem them battle arena worthy, and only a select number are leveled sufficiently enough (14 or 15) for where I want them. With how the tales are you can't piss away 30,000+ food for even one feeding, and I plant upgrapes all day.

The only dragon I like is the last one and I haven't recovered from the last event to even think that completing this latest one is feasible. I spent millions in coin planting upgrapes and desperately mining in an attempt to have enough food to finish leveling what I needed and didn't quite make it...I ended up BUYING food. That was absolutely ridiculous. Leveling the dragons seemed even more expensive than usual this time around and I'm not even entirely sure how useful they'll be in tournaments. The leaderboard was a great break and the community event really helped give me time to build up the food stores again, but it wasn't long enough. These back to back timed events are killing me--I don't find it fun.

So I'm sitting this one out.

It'd be nice if the timed events were longer, give people some breathing room. RS and BS get a month for theirs and I can finish those at a leisurely pace without feeling rushed at all...the short timers on Castle Story and Dragon Story are absolutely insane.

If it's like the previous tales, I suppose it roughly costs 340,000 apples in total (to raise the two dragons to level 14 & 13, respectively).

I missed out on quite a few of the final prize dragons until I could build up my food supplies.

For me, I don't find 100,000 food to be enough - I need around 200,000 before starting a Tales.
And yes, that is ridiculous :confused:

I only plant Diamondates, but if you can play more often and plant Rushrooms that helps.
But of course that's expensive too!

I said over 100,000- I usually end up with anywhere between 135,000- 175,000, depending on how busy I've been. I usually plant Diamondates, but during a tournament, I'll take advantage of popping in every hour to battle and plant the Rushrooms (harvesting before battle helps prevent glitches, too).

Don't forget to take advantage of the food you could win in the mines- after a leaderboard and world event, the bombs and dynamite supply should be in good shape!

I like the fact that S8 is now giving more food as prize for higher levels.. 26000 food seems nice..
My plan: start tomorrow and complete till day 2, since I am not participating, I have nothing to loose if I start early.. I can craft the first dragon and then trade it.. No loss on food there but will gain 6000 food as prize for day 2..

I may do the same think too, good idea!

Well it looks like I might be in for this after all.......

I had to breed something with metal for bingo (chose night) - got 17 hours, if it's a luck fail, I'll go ahead and try to complete this. I'm at 99,775 in food, better get planting, upgrapes are on now. I have time this weekend to clean so I'll set the timer and plant too. If it's not a luck, then I'll go as far as that task. I really like the spooky the best, so it's not a total bad thing if that is a luck.

My son loves all three, he's in the mid levels so that's not too bad to do, thank goodness for this forum, it makes things easier.

Well I too want to sit this out but I only play for Tales now an have 370k of food in stock.
The issue I have is that the dragons just do not interest me but it is tales and also Halloween themed so I will give it a go.
IMO I think the designers must be facing the same level of exhaustion as the players as the last few dragons from tourneys, leaderboard and this are not the best work and the designers must be coming up to a level of creative exhaustion.
So S8 please let up the endless events for the sake of your player and designer base.

Not sure how far I'll be able to get (first time on high level) but I gave it a try. Until now I'm on track but not sure that I'll be able to finish. But at least I'll try to get the second dragon. Depending on work and the tournament/wheel I might give up after geting the seond one and not trying for the last one.

But I got a luck fail on the second nest so at least I'm covered there. I'll try for genie as soon as I use luck.

I'm stuck on the battles in Chapter 4 but after that it should be ok for a while. Crypt is almost at level 11 (I have no food right now but that's another story), I have Luck in the nest ready to hatch and prepared to try for genie as soon as I hatch luck.

Maybe try to do one of the two quests and see if you get him in your choices? At least then you'll know if he's still in your island, and remind yourself what he looks like at level 4.

10-31-16, 01:00 PM
For high levels:
If I counted right, you'll need (besides 2 small pearls and 1 small onyx) 14 flying pumpkins and 7 ghosts.
So far I completed one spooky sights, got 3 flying pumpkins, and 2 ghouls! for 1 ghost each. If these numbers are consistent, you'll end up with one spare flying pumpkin. To get rid of this soon-to-become-obsolete crafting part, complete one more spooky sights and two more ghouls! and craft two floating candles. Unlike spare parts, decor can be sold ;)

Luck is on the nest, got it first try with Infinity and Luck.

And one other thing: I HATE (sorry for shouting, but I REALLY HATE) planting/harvesting Firapples and Pumpwings. I still don't see why we have to do these low food yielding crops while we need a mountain (make that a Mount Everest :rolleyes:) of food.
I understand that planning is part of dragon tales, so I don't mind the time it takes. IMO best thing S8 could do here is give us the choice between Firapples or Rushrooms and Pumpwings or Diamondates... Guess I'll have to submit this in the suggestions thread ;)

Well I too want to sit this out but I only play for Tales now an have 370k of food in stock.
The issue I have is that the dragons just do not interest me but it is tales and also Halloween themed so I will give it a go.
IMO I think the designers must be facing the same level of exhaustion as the players as the last few dragons from tourneys, leaderboard and this are not the best work and the designers must be coming up to a level of creative exhaustion.
So S8 please let up the endless events for the sake of your player and designer base.


I was going to sit this one out completely, but what do you know; two fails in breeding have given me a luck and a genie egg in the nests! Maybe I should work through some of it.
On the bad side, I have been trying for 3 days to place another habitat but keep being thrown out of the game. Might be the thing that stops this tales.

I've also been thinking about the designers having to come up with so many new things....just between DS and FFS there must be enough to keep them busy 24/7 with all the constant events these days.

And I also get kicked from the game every time I try to purchase a habitat.

Can someone please explain, when the game calls to " Breed a Luck dragon" & " Breed with a Luck dragon", what's the difference between the two? Cause I have done both and the game will not advance me forward.
Help please.

Help please.

Breed a luck dragon (in all past Tales) means that you will need to hatch the luck dragon from the egg - that is why many of us try breeding it early and let it sit on our nests until the task pops up. Then we hatch/place in the habitat it to get credit. I'm paranoid to sell it off the nest, other do and are successful. You can do this one in advance.

Breed with a luck dragon (in all past DT) means to put a luck dragon and something else on your breeding den (just like the task for breed with an air dragon), once the bar pops up to give you the breeding time, the task usually finishes. You cannot start this one in advance.

Hopes that helps and if I'm wrong and something has changed this time, please let us all know.

Getting VERY frustrated with the battle requirement - it seems like my battles are super HARD right now, worse than tournaments. I've lost once with a dragon that had a 75% chance of winning. Got past it, then LOST again two more times with dragons that have 60%+ chance of winning. I'm NOT spending one ounce of gold to speed up the battle component or skip them. I can only imagine how hard the battles will be on the last day when I need to win 5 of them. These dragons aren't that important to me, nice to have but not life changing.

The same thing is happening to me. The battles are really frustrating but I'm not spending one piece of gold. This last battle was 75% chance but of course I lost and I've been losing at least once almost every round!

At least it's not just me, not that it makes me feel any better.

I would much rather prefer how they did it last time - tie the battles into the tournament, then I could complete them as I had time to reach the required number of rounds versus having to cram them in while I'm at work. And the way day 10 is setup, there is no room for many loses like this with the way the tasks are ordered.

So we need a small black gemstone to craft the watering thing. How do we get that? I don't have any duplicate blacks to trade that will give a small black stone. So if that is needed I am going to stop this tale now and save my food.

For some reason, both breed with goals are not registering at first. Force close your game, then reopen it. It should give you the congratulations window after that.

After I raised my Crypt dragon to level 8, chapter 5 completed and said that I received the apple prize. But the prize didn't register - I had 499,xxx apples before completing chapter 5, and I still have that same amount. Have force closed multiple times, and it still has not registered.

Add me to the group of extra hard battles right now. Been that way since the Tales was first advertised, but before I began it.

I was at least going to try for the second dragon but just getting the crypt dragon evolved from level nine to level eleven is 60k food. Then on top of that I have to evolve it once more to level 14 for the last spooky favor. To me that just seems like a ludacris amount of apples it's like tl' s trying to make it impossible to advance in time without buying gems for food. I give up on this one

That was my original goal too. Still stuck on the battle - I'm just about giving up on this one. I raised it to an 8 and am now regretting it. Oh well, I'll keep battling and whatever I get, I get. Not stressed on this one. Rather feed up my metal to a 15 anyway - he deserves it after saving my butt last tournament.

I love Halloween and wld love to have these in my Halloween dragon collection. Hoping to buy a Halloween habitat as well, wish they wld leave them for sale longer as I haven't had the money lately. I've sat a lot of the other tales out so luckily I have food stored up. With the changing of dragons to level 15 and all the tales and stuff I wish there was a way to get more food. I still only have 1 level 15 dragon and it's my forest dragon. I don't get to play all the time like I used to. It's sad to not be able to level up dragons and collect them like I used to. I guess that's part of the game, we're all not supposed to have every dragon. It used to be a lot easier to atleast try and get all of them.

I'm not going to even try for spooky. Not interested in investing close to 280k in food before getting him. Just realized that crypt needed to be a 14 before we get spooky. Not committing all that food to a dragon I don't even like. I'm mad that I already fed him to an 8, I will eventually trade the ugly thing for gems. I'll keep going and getting the daily rewards until he needs to be fed more, then I'm out.

The battles in chapter 5 drove me crazy. especially since I got 3 not 2 as stated on page 2. The result is that I am now behind, I have to plant Firapples to get runestones and I already lost at least half a day of bingo and have no way to shorten the line at the spa. I think that poor Forest is there for a week or so. and he is not alone.
I think that I'll go as far as to ger Spooky and that's it. Maybe finish day 8 since I have Genie on the nest and I'll get spooky at least to 4 at some point anyway so the 8k apple at the end of Day 8 would be nice. But Day 9 and 10 seem ridiculous, not to mention that it makes no sense to go for day 9 when there is no change to finish day 10.

Not sure if this has been raised before but I was a little surprised. I completed the "hatch a luck dragon" task as soon as I finished breeding and had the luck dragon egg appear on the nest!
Saved 17 hours of hatching time before moving onto the next task :D

Just accidentally fed my Crypt dragon 3 more times than I had to after getting to Level 14, and now I'm down to 74K in food. I don't think I'm going to have enough to raise Spooky to Level 13 without spending gold on food. UGH. Decisions, decisions.

I am so pissed at the moment this stupid game and all glitches. About an hour ago I sent Crypt out on a quest to get Ghost since we are going to need so many of them for crafting. I watched him leave.. now I come back an hour later to collect and send him back out again and he's not even questing somehow someway Atlantis is questing. How on Earth did this happen. Specially since it's a 20-hour quest. This is going to completely screw up my story. Any advice

depends on what chapter you are,and if you need to do any quest for today/tomorow chapter,it would be easer to advice you correctly.because you actually don't need that much to craft,and atlantis will be back by then if you don't want to use any gold.even if you start tomorows chapter a fue houers later you can do any chapter buy now in less than half a day. so don't panic you can do it.

To add to lenasdinner's point; if you miss a day, you can still catch up because the next chapter will start after the current one is complete. For example, in Castle Story this week I totally forgot about my event all day on Monday. When I realized <headdesk> on Tuesday, I completed all of Monday's tasks and then Tuesday's started right away.

I stopped at Ch6 also, I had over 500,000 food so that wasn't an issue.
Though instead of getting and feeding dragons that aren't needed, I was able to feed my Quetzal (Diamond hybrid) to Lvl15.
Still got over 200,000 food to start building a stockpile again to give to my other Diamond and Champion dragons.

Thank you so much! Guess I can go ahead and sell this luck and work on the genie! Usually the chapters and acts are listed on here for all level players but they weren't this time. Oh well I just hit level 91 so guess this is the last time I will have it easy on a tales lol

It is very frustrating to have maintenance stuff going on during a timed event.

"Our games will be down for maintenance on Sunday, November 6th at 1:50 AM PDT. Expected downtime is ~2 hours.

Thank you for your patience!"

Just copied thie above from main storm 8 announcement page and moderators reply on post 67 for any people like me in Europe who now will have real trouble finishing the last day of the events and tournaments currently on DS and FFS.

Yep I saw the notification and tried to get a battle and harvest in before the converted time for me, but it looks like the servers are down before the posted time, unless the day light savings changes have not been calculated in.:confused::mad:
Oh I really think that it is not appropriate to have a scheduled maintenance while there is a time event/tournament going on. It is a simple solution to this S8, give a break in the events so the maintenance can be done while no events are going on rather than this tiring back to back evens on your games.

I'm pretty sure Spooky dragon was 6,000 each feeding both level 10 and 11, for 30,000 each of those levels, and 7,000 each feeding on level 12 for 35,000 that level...

That is good to know means a little less food to level spooky to the required level.

Thanks now, but that's why I asked at the beginning of the week so that people, especially ones who haven't been playing long, and don't live in the USA, could decide not to waste all their food stores etc on an event they may not be able to finish.
It really would be nice if storm8 could be a bit more considerate to their world wide fan base and not base everything around their own time zone.

I posted as soon as I got news. You can post in Scheduled Maintenance Sunday 11/6/2016 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?95334-Scheduled-Maintenance-Sunday-11-6-2016) and ask them to give us more advance notice next time. :)

impossible :) 24hrs around the world, in any case some zones wd be disadvantaged... actually, in case of tales, i even think that pst zone is not in good position - tales day start at midnight, many hours lost till morning...

the other thing is that they cd add at least half a day to anything timed if it falls to time switch! (dreams, dreams... lol)))

anycase, everything is back online now. which is good.
and the tales timer shows not 0:00 pst but 0:00 pdt. no even plus one hour... everything for users! :)

I'm so glad I skipped ahead with 50 gold to try and get ahead on chapter 10 with the 5 battle arena matches to probably be stuck on steelflare dragon until the tournament is over! Lol! Any suggestions how to get rid of Steelflare dragon!? 

Edit: Got him with my level 15 Fire dragon finally!

you need 10 and you request them from neighbors. (High Level)

I received the 10 batteries(thanks to my superb neighbors) in less than an hour. The batteries appear in storage so you can check the newsfeed total vs the DT. book total vs the storage total.
At one time, I had 8 in storage but the DT.book total was 7. Looking at the newsfeed, I had 7 batteries sent by neighbors and 1 map(which I haven't requested for 3 days). This means the newsfeed sometimes incorrectly displays maps received when in fact it is batteries.

Interestingly, I now have 25 batteries about 5hr after requesting. Does this indicate the maximum items received has increased to 25 or more? Anyone else have more than 25 in one day?

I started chapter 10 early,( do have a life as well ! ) top level , was lucky in battles and good prior planning but there are an awful lot of runestones to collect , still at it ..... Could be very tight on time if attempted in one day ...... :(

Finished this morning, egg on nest :) Good luck to all playing , hope the top prize dragon is useful :)

Chapter 9, Act 3...Breed with a Genie dragon. I did....Genie and Virtue are in the breeding den now, but it's not moving me on to the next act. :/ Maybe I need to try force closing?

Edit: Force closing and restarting phone did work once I finally managed to get a good connection.

Mine is doing the exact same thing. *sigh* update: I force closed and turned my phone off and back on and it moved me to the next act.

seems this is first time for me win in battle arena was not credited to tales steps.
generally if my game set back , i would have a clear battle arena for me to try battle again, however, not this time.

it should be on my 3rd win at the arena, but after i won and get back to my island, processing screen appear and i can see the timer above arena, just as i thought my win was credited, no, my counter in tales only showed 2/5! how come? if my win was not credited in the game, then why i need to wait for an hour to battle?

Ran out of food while Spooky was at level 11. Managed to scrape together enough to get him to 12, partly by using the scalypears I had set aside for collecting runestones later, but 13 is out of reach without spending gold. It's hard to admit defeat, but at some point you have to reassess priorities and move on.

My son has 1 battle left to win. Been trying to get 4 since 6am, it's now after 3pm. He's faced an Olympus and Helios while I've been helping. I won Olympus, it glitches, set it over and lost with the same dragon. Then I was on Helios, bashed with a diamond, no damage, it glitches, starts all over, bash again massive critical hit. One glitch in our favor, one was not. Fingers crossed this next dragon goes down easy!

Right now I'm pretty upset. Got caught up with real life for a couple days, but I was on the raise the dragon to level 14 to get the last favor for the Spooky Dragon. Then with 10 minutes to go, I'm trying to mine so I can save as much gold as possible. The game freezes, and I manage to get back in with 1 min 30 seconds, so I buy two of the 5200 apple deals, and level up the dragon. I get the prize screen to pop up, immediately followed by the time expired screen, but when I go to craft my Spooky Dragon, I only have 3 favors. :(

It's pretty upsetting to have worked so hard the whole 10 days, only to forget to pick up the last few runestones which would have given me the final dragon. I came in 5 minutes to late this morning, after realizing that I might have forgotten about it, I was so close, and had no problem finishing for a change, and then with the overload of tasks, new leaderboard starting and everything, I forgot about the last runestones ...

3 days later, still no resolution on my ticket. Of course, I can no longer craft the dragon. Very disappointing. I think I'm done spending actual cash on this game. :(
