[UPDATE (6/4/13 - 8 PM PDT): The Quest Outpost is now available for all iOS players with Dragon Story 1.3 and above!]
I'd like to introduce you to the landmark feature included in Dragon Story 1.3: Dragon Quests!
With the Trading Portal and Spell Shop, we gave players a fun way to utilize duplicate dragons and work towards new ones. With Dragon Quests, we invite your favorite dragons to embark on unique adventures in search of fortune and glory!
How it works...
- After you update your game to Dragon Story 1.3, if your account is in the beta test, you'll notice a new building connected to the edge of your island. This is the Quest Outpost!
The Quest Outpost
- Players levels 11+ can head into the Quest Outpost for a list of available Dragon Quests. Each quest requires a specific dragon and offers a chance at a specific reward.
Dragon Quest: Mapping the Island
- Select a dragon of the required species and send it on its way! The dragon will return after the allotted time with treasure from its journey!
- You'll always get a reward from the Dragon Quest, but each quest offers a specific rare reward. For example, if you send an Island Dragon on the quest "Mapping The Island", you have a chance at finding a Mystic Map, but you might find Food or Coins a few times instead, before you get the reward displayed on the Dragon Quest.
Pretty easy, right? Get the dragon required for a quest, send it out into the world, then it comes back with treasure--hopefully the treasure you were seeking!
But wait... there's more! Dragon Questing also introduces a brand new, unique dragon reward: The Samurai Dragon!
Dragon Quest Reward: Samurai Dragon
You'll notice two Dragon Quests (if you are high enough level) that require harder-to-breed dragons offering "Pieces of the Samurai Dragon" as rewards. Collect enough of these parts at the Quest Outpost and you can combine them at the Spell Shop to craft your own Samurai Dragon!

Let me know what you think of our new feature! I'm sure you'll enjoy tracking down adventure-hungry dragons and collecting quest rewards! I'll be editing this post with answers to the most frequently asked questions below, so check back!
When will this feature be available on Android/Kindle?
All I can say at this time is that it will be available on Android/Kindle, along with all of the backlogged features. We're working on a way to catch things up and keep them caught up. Your patience is appreciated.
I updated and I don't see the Quest Outpost, AHHHH!
During this testing period, we're only releasing to a small group of players. Stay tuned for the larger release!
Where do my dragons go when they are on Dragon Quests? Will they come back?
They go on magical quests.... off camera. Yes, your dragons will come back! This is the Quest Outpost, not the Trading Portal!
What level does a dragon have to be in order to go on Dragon Quests?
Dragons of any level can go on dragon quests so long as they are the right species for the quest. Each Dragon Quest requires a different dragon.
Do I have to expand to the Quest Outpost in order to go on Dragon Quests?
Nope! You do not have to expand to the Quest Outpost in order to access it. You might want to anyway though, to surround it with hedges and flowers of all colors, in celebration of your dragon's accomplishments.
