This section will give you the basics to the game!
In Dragon Story you must put all eggs in a Nest so they can incubate. The first Nest will already be placed on your island for free when you first download the game. You can buy additional nests in the market for Gems (Link Nest Post here). You can get dragons to hatch in several ways, such as breeding, completing goals, finishing events, or buying them in the market. After breeding, you will be able to put your dragon in a nest by clicking on the "Done" button on top of the Breeding Den.
Alternatively, you can buy a dragon from the Market:
1. Click on the "Market" icon in the right hand corner.
2. Click on the "Dragons" section on the left
3. Tap on the Dragon that you would like to buy. (You'll get a card with more information on the Dragon)
4. Click on the "Buy Now" button
5. Tap on the nest that you want to put the Dragon in.
6. Once it is done hatching, there will be an icon above the egg saying that it is done.
Please note that all dragons in the market display as the Baby form, they will change and look different as you feed them. (All dragons have 4 forms).
In order to place hatch a dragon, you must have an empty spot in a habitat available. The habitat must match with at least one of the elements that you dragon has. (Some habitats may allow two or more types of animals)
To buy a new habitat from the Market, see the following steps:
1. Click on the "Market" icon in the right hand corner.
2. Click on the "Habitats" section on the left
3. Tap on the Habitat that you would like to buy. (You'll get a card with more information on the Habitat)
4. Click on the "Buy Now" button
5. Drag the habitat to where you would like (You can always move it later)
6. Once it is done building, there will be an icon above the habitat saying that it is done.
You can upgrade your habitat over time by clicking on the "Upgrade" button (It will appear after tapping on the habitat you would like to upgrade). Upgrades will allow you to put more dragons in your habitat.
The amount of habitats you can have will depend on your level. You can see how many habitats you can have by clicking on the level icon in the top left corner, or in the item preview card when you are about to buy a habitat.
In Dragon Story, you can level up your dragons up until Level 15 (You need a Noble Crystal to evolve above 10). The amount of food you needed to feed your dragon will depend on the dragon and its level. To upgrade to level 4, level 7, level 10, or level 15 you will need to evolve your dragon. Evolving can be done in the Evolution Temple and will give you more coins per collection.
You can get food from the Food Farms. You can read more information about them here: [INSERT LINK]
There are two types of currency in Dragon Story; Coins and Gold. You can see how much of each currency you have in the top left corner.
Coins are essential to maintaining your island. They are used for buying things in the market, breeding, healing and much more.
To earn coins, simply click on the "Collect" icon above your dragon habitats. Your dragons earn coins every second, but there is a maximum amount of coins you can collect in one habitat before it stops collecting. You can see what the maximum amount of coins by clicking on the "Info" button after selecting the designated habitat. You can also win coins in other ways, such as for completing goals and the "Volcanic Treasures" quest in the Quest Output.
If you would like to buy coins using Gold, click on the counter in the top left counter.
Gold is used to buy premium habitats and Dragons in the market. You can also use it to speed up most timers.
You can collect from Gold dragons or receive it from your neighbors as a gift (They can only gift 3 gold a day). You can also earn gold through promotional features, which you can read more about here. (Coming Soon)
If you would like to buy coins using Gold, click on the counter in the top left counter. Make sure to look out for sales which may appear in your game randomly!
When you do tasks around the Isles, you will earn xp points. By earning enough XP points, you will level up and unlock new features, buildings, dragons, habitats, and more.
You can see your level on top of the star in the top left corner. If you tap on the star, you can see your Island statistics which will let you how much XP points you have in total.
There are 200 levels currently in game.
There are three types of expansions in the game: Regular Expansions, Mining Expansions, and the Marble Island. Buying an expansion will allow you to gain access to new areas of the Isles!
To expand your island, click on one of the "Expand" signs in your Dragon Isles or click on the "Expand" button in the Shop.
Regular Expansions cost Mystic Maps and coins. The amount of money and Mystic Maps that the expansion costs depends on how many previous expansions you have unlocked. To get Mystic Maps, you can request them from your neighbors or buy them using gold. Some events and goals may also give you Mystic Maps. Once you have finished expanding to new locations, you must clear trees or shrubs before you can place habitats or buildings.
You can only expand to one area at a time.
Starting at level 80, players can play the Mining mini-game to find Island Parts, which are used like Mystic Maps to expand on the brand new island to the northwest of the main island, near the Mine. Unlike the normal islands, this new island is built as you expand.
Mining Expansions Discussion Thread:
You can use Raw Marble ad Marble Keys to unlock land in the Marble Island!
Raw MarbleAn abundance of beautiful Raw Marble has risen up from the seafloor with the new island. Baby dragons seem to find them very easily (might have something to do with them being close to the ground). Breeding dragons will help locate these pieces of Raw Marble that can then be used to help explore the new location by turning them into Marble Keys!
Marble KeysIt seems that some archaic magic resides deep within the marble stone of the new island. When formed together and imbuded with magic, the marble seems to help expand the floating bridge and clear the untamed forest from a Caretaker's path. Collect Raw Marble and head over to the Spell Shop to create your own Marble Keys and go claim your Island!
Marble Island Discussion Thread:
The Community is composed of everyone who plays Dragon Story. You can help members of the Community by visiting their islands or writing an encouraging comment on their walls. To find members of the Community, visit the Social page from the Main Menu and tap the Community tab. From here you can view a list of several Community members and go to their islands by tapping the Visit button.
When you visit another player's islands, you can play with the dragons there. This grants those dragons' Caretaker with bonus experience and coins and will increase your Social Rating. Your Social Rating is displayed at the bottom of the island you are visiting and can range from 0 eggs to a full 4 eggs. A higher Social Rating increases your chances of appearing at the top of the Community list when other players are looking for someone to visit. Keep in mind that you can only play with a limited number of dragon habitats at each player you visit per day, so if you want to get a Social Rating of 4, you will need to help several Community members or Neighbors.
You can view your own wall by going to Main Menu>Overview>Wall.
You can become Neighbors with your friends from other Storm8 Studios and Storm8 games or become Neighbors with Community members you've met in Dragon Story. A Neighbor is similar to a Community member but you can send them gifts, and play with more dragons at their islands each visit. To become Neighbors you need to follow these easy steps:
Step 1: select Social from the Main Menu, tap the Invite tab and signup for a Storm8 ID if you haven't already.
Step 2: tap the empty box next to the "Friend's Storm8 ID" text, enter your friend's Storm8 ID, and tap Invite.
You have now invited someone to be your Neighbor. They won't show up as your Neighbor until they accept the invite.
Likewise, other players can invite you to be their Neighbor using your Storm8 ID. To see if someone has invited you to become their Neighbor, select Social and tap the Invite tab. Neighbor Requests that you have received will be displayed and you can either accept or decline them.
To give a Gift to another player, you must first add them as a Neighbor. You can then send a Gift either directly through the Neighbors page by tapping the Gift button next to their name or by visiting a Neighbor's island and then tapping the Gift icon on the right side of the screen. When you send a gift, you are not giving up items you already have, and it doesn't cost anything. It is like buying your friends presents for completely free! Your friends will surely appreciate that and return the favor! You can give up to 3 gold a day. If you pick more than 3 neighbors to give gold to, the game will randomly select 3 people. The gift timer resets at 12 AM PT.
