I'm a fairly new player (several months) and I've been enjoying it but what turns me off is it seems impossible to win the event dragons (milestone in the leaderboard, chapters 7 & 10 of the storybook, the last 2 in community events) without the use of gold. To get that many community or leaderboard points seems impossible, and the storyboard is ridiculously difficult (if not impossible) to breed the needed "common" dragon.
I'm lvl 82 - does it become possible when you're a high level? I'm frustrated as it seems even with constant breeding, evolving and hatching I have no way of winning these dragons! I haven't been able to get a monthly dragon yet either. Wondering if it gets easier :/
