In the Spectral Hunt event for the Doom Dragon, one of the tasks is to breed a certain type of dragon. I came back to dragon story recently and this is a type of step I do not recall in these kinds of events.
It?s really not a good task to have something so RNG-based as one of your tasks in this event, and making the penalty for skipping it 50 gold is too steep. I don?t understand why you would handicap your players from completing the event with such a burdensome task. I?m sure there are better alternatives than requiring us to luckily breed a certain type of dragon or spend a ton of gold to bypass the task altogether.
