    You can use this Time Zone Converter to figure out your local time. You can enter "San Francisco" for the TL time zone (PST).

    I would plan on having all your Adventures collected before the quests expire.

    Q. Do I have to do the timed portions?

    Q. What are the chances of getting an egg?

    Quote Originally Posted by glimmergate View Post

    So if you have an unhatched egg of one type it won't prevent you from getting an egg of a different type.

    Quote Originally Posted by glimmergate View Post

We're monitoring feedback to make sure that this is the case. Remember that it's only day 1! There's lots of time left.

    Getting all 3 eggs is a tall order, meant to challenge you lv. 50 players with lots of resources and an advanced game.
    Q. I haven't had any egg drop. Is there something I need to do first?

    Quote Originally Posted by glimmergate View Post

    You only need to chop 1 trove to start getting the chance for the eggs to drop. The eggs will drop from the adventure not the troves.

    Q. How do I get [resource]?

    Quote Originally Posted by glimmergate View Post

    The Large Diamonds from the Treasure Troves can in fact be used to hatch the dragon from the Forgotten Roost... I don't want to give too much away but if you're debating whether or not to use it for that purpose, I'd recommend going for it
    Note: the above bit is for the people who have a dragon egg and are up to the raw materials quest (needs diamond, Golden Fleece and burning ember)

    Quote Originally Posted by glimmergate View Post

    Seeds: conservatories, faerie respite, magic garden, Ivy's hut, goddess tree
    Conservatory: 15 red petals, & 5ish super glue, fancy beams & fancy blocks to build,2 hour collection time

    Quote Originally Posted by claupu View Post

    So building several Jewels may help, chopping down Rocks like mad and crafting will be my choices and -naturally- collecting from the above buildings. Oh I forgot the Treasure Troves!

    - Be sure you are maxed on jewels when you start.
    - Make sure you can collect from your mines all day long for two days.
    - If you can, buy more jewelllers.
    - Remember to collect from Sabinas house.
    - Do adventures to the ancient vault, have it ready to collect when you start the quest. This adventure usually drops jewels.
    - Save your treasure troves until you need them, they contain lots of jewels.
    - Chop all kinds of rocks and deep cave formations.
    - Ask you friends to start sending you jewels, don't collect your gifts for 6/7 days until you start the quest. The system usually saves your incoming gifts for a week or up to a maximum of 20. This alone should give you 18/20 jewels ready to collect.
    - If you have the 4th shard and have allowed your coal supply to build up again, you can craft jewels in the magic forge.
    - You can do exchanges with Belladonna, this usually gives you jewels.
    - Collect from sir piggy and your regular dragon(s).

    All in all I think it's very doable and you don't even need to do everything on the list to get all 200 jewels.
    Q. If I get all the dragons will I still have the adventure?

    Quote Originally Posted by glimmergate View Post

    Q. Can I get more than 1 of each egg?

    You can only hold 1 of each egg in your inventory. It is possible to get another egg once you've hatched a dragon. It is only possible to hatch more than one of the ultramarine dragons (provided you don't complete the water birthing goal, ie don't feed baby dragon)


    Q. Will skipping the egg goals give me the egg?

    Skipping these goals for 200 gems will give you the egg (so you don't have to rely on them randomly dropping from the adventures)

    Q. If I have the egg and the 10 days expires will I still be able to do the quests for the egg?

    Quote Originally Posted by glimmergate View Post
    They will never expire once you have the egg. The timed portions of the quests will expire if you don't complete them in time, but the quests themselves are designed so that even if you miss every timed portion, as long as you have the egg, you will be able to hatch it.
    Q.what are the feed/collect times for the dragons?

    Baby dragons get hungry every hour. It takes them 20 feeds before they grow up. Adult dragons are ready to give their gifts every 22 hours.

    This sounds super amazing. Pity I'll be out most of the day by time the release starts.

    I refuse to be embarrassed for contemplating canceling an appointment today, to be home mid afternoon. o.O

    But I won't. Ill think about it but I won't.
