You can breed the dragon whose pedestal you need with an epic dragon, unless it's a gem bearing dragon, and still be able to get another dragon or ped.

There are 10 special flag bearing visitors. They're dressed differently than the normal flaggers. If you have all the Elders there are now 20 flaggers to locate. When you've found the regular flaggers the flag will disappear from the visitor icon. When you've found all the special visitors the green border will disappear from the visitor icon. Tap the visitor icon. It will let you know if you have some visitors or elder flaggers remaining. It will reset if all have been found. (Sometimes it takes a bit to reset so I tap on it to double check.) Tap the special visitors for a reward of $20k or a gem. Have fun :-)

Greetings my friends I know it's been a while since I've posted - I have no excuses.

FP!!!!!!!!!! THERE you are! I apologize for not sending you an e-mail - I'm a terrible correspondant! I hope to try to get a good one out to you in the next week or so.
Glad to hear the graduation went well - I empathize with you on all your guests, feeling like a B&B. Two years ago we had EVERYONE from Arkansas up here at some point. All 'my' family so of course I was glad to have them, but it does put a different spin on the normal routine, doesn't it?

GPK - I will try your combo of Heat/Water for Steam. Not burning because of that little bugger! I've been trying Salamander/Coral but to no avail (as well as the Fire/Water combo). Thanks so much for sharing!

DRM - did you notice the 'extra special' visitors in the park??? Noel de Plente (???) gives great advice and a gem - I think I found 3 of him today. And another event!!! Woo-hoo!!!!! Looking forward to it muchly!

Only the same ol' same ol' here folks. The daily grind. Although I am gearing up for a very long month with our Summer Reading Program at the Library. I'm taking on quite the project for the Village/Library (my own doing) and it is a lot of work, a lot of extra (unpaid) hours, and a lot of coordinating with others. I'll be glad to see the end of July, then BOOM visitors in the house. I say 'visitors' but my oldest sister is coming up for a couple of weeks and I always love her visits. We sew and cook, and she plays the piano beautifully - something I haven't even touched in almost a year.

All my ADD's seem to work fine - my tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, onions, and okra are growing well, the remaining guineas are doing well, and we actually had rain here for the first time in a long time. We sure needed it. Although I'm sorry to say those to the south and east of us are getting pummeled with 'severe' weather, we just got the rain. I will say the clouds tonight were magnificent though; lots of mammatus! (Which look really cool, but are usually (though not always) heralds of really bad storms)

Really nothing has been going on but the work here; I have managed to carve out a few hours to re-re-re-read Stephen King's "The Stand"; still my fave novel by him.

All from me tonight; time to get the dogs out and me to bed. You all take care and enjoy the upcoming event!

Noel dePlante is the galaxy dragon wizard. If he showed up in mine I went through too fast to notice. I wonder if the event is going to be galactic themed ? Last year it was Olympic dragons to coincide with the Summer Olympics. This year there is a solar eclipse that is making big news but it's in August.

Seems like I was a day late and a dollar short. The DVW update completely changes the weekend challenges. There are a lot of unhappy people on Facebook. :-(

Here I was all excited to find these helps so I could finish the challenges. Oy!

Dreamn

dreamn10 at gmail dot com

Dreamn's picture

How do you like the new weekend challenge? I've never finished one before but I wasn't planning correctly. I had this one all prepped to go for a "double cash" weekend and was looking forward to an enchanted dragon in at least one of my parks. The update and new challenge blew that to smithereens, lol. I managed to finish the challenge in all 3 parks. (Yes, I know, I have a dragon problem! )
I've hatched Cancia in my main DVW park, the others are still trying. My #2 park has been good to hatch the Zodias, all but Cancia so far. None have an enhanced Zodia. I was able to get the Summer Hieroglyph in parks 2 and 3.

I have to say how impressed I am with my iPad Pro. Yesterday I downloaded season 2 of Vikings, the entire season. I still have 4 episodes of season 1 to watch, for a total of 14 episodes. I also have 2 movies downloaded. That being said, after downloading Vikings yesterday, I had a warning pop up of low memory remaining. Oops!! 844 MB of 32GB remaining. :O
I figured I'd have to watch some and delete so I could play my games but then the new DVW challenge showed up and I sort of got wrapped up in it. Dragons, you know? I'm sure you all understand ;-) There was no lag, none, even with switching back and forth between parks as well as Splash and Facebook. Wow!

Is everyone seeing him visiting and tapping for a reward? He seems to be missing from all 7 of my parks. I haven't seen him once, in any of them, since the pre-event began.

DRM - well first - I love the new weekend events in DVW!! I was able to successfully complete it in each of my parks. I like how they change when one is done, but I still had 16 hours to go and finished one yesterday! (Now if they'd just expand the park again!). I was able to get Cancia and Summer Hieroglyph in both parks. I'm trying for the Ench version in both and some Rainbows for my second (lower-level) park.

As to Noel dePlante - I only saw him the first day, haven't seen him since. I think there were three of 'him' and each presented a gem and a sage saying. I'm hoping the event kicks off soon! I wonder if there will be new dragons or just repeats... Seems like the wishing well is back up and soon-to-be operational on the event island!

And congrats on Singulariaty and Steam! I am still missing Steam, but trying in all three breeding areas. I still have a Banner Bud that eludes me everyday, and that one quickly turns into a 'banner - female dog' as the hours progress with no sightings!

It was slow at the library today but perhaps that is good knowing what lies in store for me on Thursday. I am a bit concerned as I only have seven registered children so far! Last year I had 10 that signed up before we started and ended with 18 (which is good for a small rural area like ours). I do hope they show up on Thursday! The Omaha Zoo (Henry Doorly Zoo) has a "Zoo 2 You" program (for which we are paying dearly this year) that I've booked as a surprise for the kids at the end of the month. It would be a shame if more kids can't see that.

AND I'm missing yet another guinea! Either one or two - it seems like with the doors open all the time (and one broody hen that won't get off the nest of eggs that will not hatch) it is harder and harder to get a good head count. When I counted the brown ones tonight I only got 18, I should have 20. But alas, if there is another hen on a nest she won't come in until she's good and ready. Which is surprising in of itself, because guineas are not known for being good parents.

I can look outside right now and see hundreds of fireflies! What a beautiful sight! It is definitely a perk of living out here. Of course, it is also extremely humid tonight - we were supposed to get storms but that chance has piffled down to about 10%. We sure could use the rain. I spend about 30 minutes or so just watering things around here, which is fine, but we sure could use a couple of inches.

My dryer went on the fritz yesterday. I pushed 'start' and something 'popped' and then nothing. Now if I remember correctly, dryers have 110 and 220, so I'm thinking perhaps the 220 went out (that powers the drum) because the displays are still lit. So....another call to an electrician first then to Sears if it's not the power. Because there is a distinct possibility that the electrician can fix the dryer (if that's the problem) but Sears can't fix my electrical problem. If it's not one thing, it's another! Oh well, keeps me on my toes I expect. Which of COURSE means that the laundry will have to be hung out to dry, which is not a bad thing, but we need the rain! Oh the unfairness of it all!!!! :)

Enough from me, I'm headed to the games for awhile before bed. You all take care and I wish you all luck and happy dragons in the upcoming event!

I kinda feel the event will start this Thursday. That's when the gem sale ends and the normal starting day for events. Be sure and watch for the game update if you don't have auto-updates set.
I've hired a caregiver service to help with mom. Thursday is their first day. I'm also watching my oldest grandson Wed-Fri. The first day is the hardest to max out in tickets but hopefully I can squeeze in some dragon time.

Barite dragon for my Android Babies park! (Level 45, 211 dragons, most are babyfied ) Galaxy dragon in 12 days, wish in 10.

Main Android park ( level 86, 302 dragons) hatched a Surge dragon, woohoo!

Grandson was here today. He brought his dads iPad and we played our games, showing each other when we got something new. He liked DV and his dad let him download it. He was so excited that he made it to level 8 after only a few minutes. He's played dragon city so he understands pretty much how things work. There aren't any battles or fighting so we will see how long he stays with it. He's looking forward to the event and the special dragons that come with it. Hopefully he's able to get at least a couple.

I switched to Water & Fire (both Level 21), which I originally tried and BINGO! I got a Steam. Then I tried Coral & Salamander and BINGO! I got the Ped.

I'm learning a finger picking version of Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight". I can strum the chords and sing it but the finger picking version is prettier. Boy, did I miss out on Clapton when I was younger (too busy trying to make a living I guess) but now...wow...I was gonna go out to his show in LA this month but I have to have a molar implant and I don't want to spend so much $$$$$ in one month.

I'm with DRM would love to hear you finger pick and play Clapton's song. Is this the same one you told me you were learning a month or two ago or was that a different one. I admire your dedication! Oh, and congrats on Steam :-)

New event looks fun...good luck all!

Grandpa Kenny's picture

The finger picking version of "Wonderful Tonight" is a tough one, much tougher than "Layla Unplugged" but I'm practicing it every night. The chord version with fills of WT is much easier...but I'll let you know. My teacher gives me a new song every couple weeks but it gonna take a while for WT.

Hatching or Selling Eggs will give you +2 Rift Magic Points. If you breed two Plant Dragons they will Breed & Incubate in about 5 seconds each. Then, sell the Egg & you get +2 Rift Magic Points each...repeat the process and you get +2 more points, etc., etc., etc., slowly, but surely you can accumulate Rift Magic Points! :-) :-) :-)

Oh yes and you also get 50D$ & 100xp each time too...

Has anyone else noticed Easter eggs, Christmas presents and stars?!! The time rift surely has ripped!!!

Grandpa Kenny's picture

...I collected 11 Eggs, 3 Stars & 8 Christmas Presents (I guess there could be more but that's what I was able to find in 1 trip through my Park). They varied in value from 5 to 50 Rift Magic Points (RMPs) and only counted towards your daily limit of 1,000 RMPs. I do think they have a bug in the different RMP counters. I've hit my daily limit and both counters are stuck, one at 1,000 & the other at 1,150 (the little starter points they gave) but if I tap my ship and then tap progress, it says I have 1,308 RMPs toward a Dragon??? I dunno.

I've been trying to count the different gifts but it's been very hard. Grandson wants to play my game for me and I had to shoo him away so I could try to understand the wonkyness. He just went tap tap tap and was done, then asks how much magic did you get... while I was still trying to remember what house I was supposed to join...holy moly! So I had the grand idea of him playing Splash. (Slowly shaking my head and wondering what I was thinking.) "Grandma can you send me some Splash bucks?" Now my big macho, hot rod loving son has DV and Splash on his Facebook. Wonder if grandson wants to collect butterflies too... and how long it would take for him to ask me to gift him some Flutter bucks... Should I do that to my son? Muahahahah! He's having fun and son doesn't mind. He said today "Grandma I like staying here". Got me in the feels!!

GPK the 1000 count is your normal daily max. The 1150 is your daily max plus the starting gifts. The 1308 goes to the House account towards a prize dragon for the House members if enough RMPs are accumulated. In previous events players maxed out and then quit for the day. Now we can continue to play and the extra RMPs go towards the House account. If you max out and then collect gifts you keep what's in your gifts, that's yours. We only get to bank 3000 this time. Any RMPs not used for prizes will be turned to COINS instead of treats.

Good luck to everyone :-)

Good hints, thanks guys! Also my son said if you send the ship out a lot (and finish it for two gems) it's another way to max out.

GPK I had to ask my husband what 'chord version with fills' meant and it does sound much easier than finger picking! He said you inspire him because sometimes he feels like he's too old to learn the more complex things but you're still pushing yourself learning new things!

DRM oh my, oh my, lol, now Splash too?! Good diversion! I don't know who's going to need the 12 step DV recovery plan more; you or your grandson!

Question - what did you mean we can only bank 3000 magic this time? Does that mean we only have 3 days (1000 magic per day) after the event ends to collect our gifting magic? So far, I've not been able to collect any of my gifts - I keep maxing out with just going through the vale, hatching eggs and playing the games. What is a Dragon Grower to do???

That is correct, 3 whole days! I envy you maxing out so fast. I'm barely getting my parks maxed before the next reset. I can't find those darn gifts. :'(

Have you seen the new DVW Origami dragon? Sooo cute! It's a permanent Zen dragon too.

Are you doing well in the Flutter event? I found 3 egg layers in my storage I didn't know I had, plus some wisp helpers that I will level up before the next wisp event. Might be too late for this event but I'll be ready for the next one.

Question: I think I'm a Mountain Sun, but what is a "House Member"? What does the "Progress Towards Rewards" message mean? That I can buy the other Dragons with those rewards?

Your help is always appreciated. How do you find out all your 'Intel'? Do you work for the DVIA (DragonVale Intelligence Agency)? :-)

Dreamn's picture

You're a member of Mountain Sun, the House you chose last summer for the Pentournament that took place during the Olympics. In my main park I'm Iron Blossom. In my other parks I'm either Iron Blossom or Blazing Gale. There's also Hidden Bolt and Icy Torrent. The "progress towards reward" is showing how much magic has been contributed into the House account. Once that meter is full all the House members receive an award dragon.

Mountain Sun - Alpenglow dragon
Blazing Gale - Blightwing dragon
Icy Torrent - Snowsquall dragon
Iron Blossom - Spore dragon
Hidden Bolt - Voltaic dragon

These are Rift dragons that contain the elements of the House dragons. I'm guessing these will be the Day 50 reward if enough magic is accumulated in the House accounts. They can also be purchased with magic in the Prize Pavilion.

Thank you GPK, I really enjoy helping others when I can. :D I've joined some DV groups on Facebook. I also check Wiki DV and the DragonVale Community on proboards.

So, does that mean that when we get enough of the House points we will be given those Dragons? Right now, I have 20,000+ House points & 9,325 regular points. If I tried to buy one of those House Dragons right now, which points would be used?

Email: rkchurch64_at_gmaildotcom

I WAS a Proud Member of the DVFD until they implemented this Rift business...

Dreamn's picture

You would be spending your magic ( the 9325). You can't do anything with the House magic (the 20k). It's the same as when we put a coin in the wishing well. When enough coins were added everyone got a wish and a wishing well decoration. This time, instead of the wishing well, you get a Rift dragon with the same elements as your House. Also, just as donating a coin to the well didn't take away from your dragon cash, contributing magic doesn't reduce any magic you have.

The Light Rift and Dark Rift dragons are no longer sharing the light / dark elements with both going in either habitat. Now they are Light/ Rift, Dark/ Rift. The Light Rift must go in a Light habitat or Omnitat and the Dark Rift must go in a Dark habitat or Omnitat. See the new Plant Rift and Fire Rift? The new "House" Rifts? They haven't introduced only few new special dragons, this is a whole "new" element. I bet many Rift hybrids are on the way.

I know, Light Rift and Dark Rift were technically the first. They came through the Rift when the Light and Dark dragons appeared
So far there is no special Rift habitat. They've always put new habitats in the prize market right away. Unless BFS has something special in mind, I'm betting the Rifts will continue to go in the habitats matching their other elements but have a different appearance from non-Rift dragons.

Don't tell my boss about all this betting. They frown on gambling at the DVI ...errmm... The Company. Whew, almost slipped up there!

You guys crack me up!!! DVIA!!! I love it! Today I worked at the library (garden project) until the storms blew in. We had a couple of funnel clouds reported just to the north of me (about 2 miles) but I haven't seen anything but rain out here (which we desperately needed!!). So, here I am going through the Vale and decided today to collect the 1000 from my gifts instead of my habitats/eggs (the eggs still in my gifts from the twin weekend we had - I have about 40 eggs to hatch!). So I, like you, GPK, have contributed over 20K to the 'House Dragon', but am ITCHING to get that grand island - ONE MORE DAY and I'll have enough to get it (I think). I'm surprised they haven't come out with a limited dragon, yet as in past events. I'm OK with that, though. I have noticed that almost everyone in my 'breeding buds' list already has the new light/fire dragon! I'm so not a very good Dragon Grower anymore. I've just put some into breeding but didn't get the right times for them. Do you two have it yet?

DRM - very interesting about the new Rift set of dragons. Have you noticed the Dark Rift dragon is glowing in this event - very cool. I haven't seen any change to the Light Rift dragon. I almost spent my wishes last year on the Dark Rift and Light Rift habitats in the market, but decided against it as they only can hold one dragon.

I sure hope my guineas made it to the barn or Ghetto before this rain kicked in - it is really pouring outside!!! (Thankfully I still have power!)

Well, I'm depressed about the Vale - itching to start getting the new dragons and island - has anyone posted good breeding info on any of them???

Well, of to DVW for a bit before I have to get cleaned up for work (between storms - there's another whomping system to the west that I'm sure we'll get in a few hours). Oh, I did see the Origami dragon - very cute. I'm trying Fairy/Knarr combo to get it since Knarr has all three elements required for it. Still working on getting an Ench Cancia before time runs out but so far nothing but a BUNCH of Kraken dragons!

Take care - will chat at you later!

Congrats on THE Island. All I can think about when it comes to that island are the hidden gifts and flaggers. Oh what "fun" that's going to be!

Good morning all, well things have finally slowed down here and all guests are gone, at least for now! This sure has been a different event. Thankful DRM that you're keeping it all straight for us! Are you all enjoying it? I'm wondering about the Faire prizes and what those might be and why it's tied to the Pentournament? Any ideas DRM? Got the Infared dragon and ped, just wish the other dragons were breedable! I'm having a hard time deciding between getting the gargantuan island or the two rift dragons. DG I can see where you went for the island- all that space!!! Did you see that the rift habitats are now upgradable? They can hold more than one dragon now!! And my light rift dragon glows too but it doesn't seem like it's as much as the dark rift dragon because of its light color. I bet your gardens were happy to get the rain! GPK are you going for the dragons or the big island?

I think I'm gonna go for the Dragons first...gotta get that fire burnin' again :-)

Thank you FP. :-)
The Faire used to be the Summer event. I wasn't playing then so it will be a surprise as to what's next. Bought the fire and plant rifts for each park and their peds. I'm saving for everything in the 2nd tier. I want those House Rift dragons to go with the original House dragons. :D

Flwrpot's picture

GPK Exactly my thought! Plus as you mentioned to DG they are on a time limit so that's the route I went. Pretty cool the way they 'glow' but I'm wondering if that will continue after the event as well since the original rift dragons didn't do it until this event. So how are you coming along on your song? Last gig my husband's band got was cancelled due to flash flooding. They actually had to rescue a band from off the stage via boat!

DRM You weren't around for the last Faire event?! I'm sure you were playing in your dragon dreams though because it seems like you've been been a 'Vale Pal' for a long time and we're so glad! I remember the Faire was pretty awesome and introduced the Omnitats, Tidal dragon and the Faire rides like the hot air balloon, 'Mikey' on the bouncy mushroom (I think Boo91 or Lynn named him that!) and the Ferris Wheel among other prizes. It's interesting to me that they're going to include the Faire in the prize categories. Can't wait to see if there's something new! I wonder if the house rift dragons will be able to go to Elder status like the original house dragons? Guess I could level one up and see!

Speaking of Boo and Lynn, sure do miss those ladies and of course our IPK, both Sandy and Sandi, Carol, KL, and the rest.....where has everyone gone? :-(

Dreamn's picture

I'm with you there on our missing friends. Hope they are all doing well.

Thank you for the compliment. I wish I had been here a lot sooner. I've read some older posts and missed some really fun and interesting players. With my sister begging me to play from the game's get-go... I probably was playing in my dreams, lol.

I did some background reading on the Faire event and the Pentournament was designed a bit from the Faire. I mentioned there were no Rift habitats but that is incorrect. There are the Light and Dark Rift reward habitats that can now be upgraded. My apologies, I wasn't playing at the time.

I don't think the rift dragons will go to elder status as they are hybrids. However, we never know what BFS has in store.
By House Rift dragons I meant the ones matching the elements of the Pentournament House dragons. For example, Icy Torrent has the elements cold and water. The matching House Rift is Snowsquall, with the elements of cold, water and rift. You should receive a free Snowsquall as your reward when your House completes its magic goal. The other House Rifts are Alpenglow/ Mountain Sun, Blightwing/ Blazing Gale, Spore/ Iron Blossom, and Voltaic/ Hidden Bolt. Can you imagine tho, how awesome the Rifts would look as elders?

Got it in one of my side parks with Light and Smolder. That has to be one of the weirdest looking dragons. But it makes good $$. :D

I received a Celerulean dragon for a log in reward in my main park. I now have all the galactics, woohoo!

My guess is that when the current Rift Dragons (Fire & Plant) expire in about 44 hrs., they will be replaced by 2 more new Elemental Rift Dragons eg. a Water Rift or Earth Rift etc. so my advice is watch the way you spend your RMPs (Rift Magic Points).

GPK good advice, but ugh, that means another dilemma between the island or the other dragons, lol. Oh well, as my son says, 'first world problems'!

DRM I got what you're saying now about the House dragons, lol, sorry I don't know why I got confused; thank you for explaining it to me! No apologies about the rift habitats, I was just sharing with DG that they were upgradable as I recently found out. :-) I wish BFS would announce that stuff in our News portion of our park. Usually they're so good at announcing new things!

Hi all. I've been out a long time but so busy I barely have time to Ck dv. I did just hit my max 95 thanks to some 2x days I won in races and quests. Now I'm worrried about running out of habitats for all the new or future dragons. So far have plenty but how far can I take it.

Anyone have herald they can put in coop. I don't have it but am thinking I can breed it else I have to sacrifice magic and might miss on another dragon. I messed up a bit and bought a mystery egg and it was Rain which I had so all that magic gone.

GPK thank for putting up the herald. I tried and tried then used magic as I was going to miss it but still looking to get the ped.

So many good prizes in this event I'm stumped. I need that midday and tidal and here for a limited time but I have to have the rifts. I still don't have light ruftbtjough I tried a few dozens times. And oh my! a new island and another omnitat and a weather maker. I am like a kid in a candy store with a limited budget. What's a girl to do ! Well going for the rifts first I think. Must haves.

Good day all!

I think I'm going for the big island this time vs the rift dragons. I think I have enough time to get the rifts before they leave and the double weekend sure helps a lot. I got my 'house' dragon, Snowsquall, yesterday which is cool we get one for free that we don't have to buy with magic, but I can't say it's one of my favorites, lol, it's quite ugly!

KL you do have some good but hard choices to make! I can always put up Tidal or Midday in co-op for you if you'd like to try for either. Did you notice how big the new island is? It's enormous!

Dragon Grower's picture

Greetings, all! Well, FP, I agree the new island is HUGE! Right now I only have some treat farms and some new decor on it, but haven't decided just how I want to set it up. Part of me thinks it would be a great ped island. I got the Earth Rift dragon today thanks to the double magic weekend - it looks really cool! I'm very tempted to use my two wishes on the Rift habitats that are available through the wishing well, BUT I'm waiting to see what comes out in the Faire prizes in 10 days. The habitats (Large Light/Dark rift 'reward' habitats) can hold 5 dragons and max cash is 350K. I think the new rift dragons look very cool, don't you? I like the wings...

Last final push for our library Summer Reading Program. Our last reading day is this coming Thursday, with the reading party on Saturday night and our 'garden' party on Sunday the 30th. I'm glad to see the back of this one - it has been a hard working project and I am SO PROUD of the kids for the hard work they've done this year. I don't know of any other library that actually does manual labor as part of their program but we sure did and our little garden looks great. Notwithstanding, this past Thursday our temps were right at 100 (the kids were able to plant one plant each before I had them back inside). I think it went well - everyone was safe from the heat and they can put their name to a plant when they show the garden to their parents on Sunday. THEN of course, my sister will be up from Arkansas on Saturday night (of the party) so I'm not sure how that is going to work, but she can hang either here at the house or just come to the library and eat pizza with us. She'll be here for two weeks and I'm so glad she's coming this year. Last year she went to Peru as part of a "Doctors w/out Borders" program but I'm glad she's coming back up. We always do a lot of sewing and cooking and just hanging. I'm glad of her company and I always learn something new!

Well off with me, I'm beat and tomorrow is a long day in my own garden! You all take care and I'll chat at you soon!

Hi all! It has been forever and a day since I logged in! I have been reading post after post...am I to understand that no one has had any luck trying to breed the new dragons? I'm maxing out every day and had all the returning reward dragons. This is looking like a lot of dragons for BEB to me... Best wishes to all!

...as if we don't already have enough stuff going on...

It's Plant & Dark.

Flwrpot's picture

Vineskm-Agreed, looks like BEB for me too, lol, ,too many dragons to get plus who's going to want to pass up the 12,000 gargantuan island?! Not me!

GPK got the new Snapper dragon, with Plant and Fungus in the cave, 4th try. He's very turtley! Now for the ped.

DG I think the new rift dragons are cool too, especially like you said, the wings! I was thinking of making my big new island a ped island as well; kind of a bigger version of my garden and ped island but it's so much work to move all the eggs yet again and the new island is so massive I'd really need to plan it out in my head first to see if it's worth the work. I can't imagine ever needing to move peds again though if I did it so that is a huge perk! Decisions, decisions. I'll have to visit your park to see your earth rift dragon!

Grandpa Kenny's picture

FP, I can't imagine you not having all the Dragons for more than one or two days!!! What is this world coming to?

Thanks for the tip on the Snapper...but how did you get 4 tries so quickly? Speed breeding?

Learning "Is Anybody Out There" by Lead Zeppelin...it's much easier than "Wonderful Tonight", which I still haven't mastered.

Flwrpot's picture

Lol! As Buzz Lightyear said to Woody, 'You're mocking me aren't you!' ;-) It is nice how easily most have come recently but for a good year or so I couldn't get dragons to save my life! I did use gems to speed breed this one. I tend to have better luck getting new dragons within the first hour or two of it coming out so of course that means using up those gems.

I'm not familiar with that Led Zeppelin song. The title instantly reminded me of Pink Floyd's 'Is There Anybody Out There' song of which I am not a fan of either the song or Pink Floyd but it sure gets stuck in your head once you hear it! What made you switch to a new song? Your choice or your instructor's?

LOL x 2! It WAS Pink Floyd! I guess I confused it with "Stairway to Heaven"...my bad...a sign of old age...just keeps getting worse. My teacher gives me the assignments. This song is a good arpeggio exercise. I bet your hubby can play it easily.

That's what Gems are for...and yes, I seem to have better luck right after they release a new Dragon too.

Been mega busy, watching grandson and mom, and answering a thousand times "is the ________ dragon good?" He is loving playing games with grandma and yes, he discovered DVW. We've had fun but I'm exhausted.
He goes home Saturday. :-( I do like his approach on the event. He gets whatever looks cool and shows it off with a smile, no strategy needed, just having fun. He LOVES buying the mystery egg. He keeps getting gemstone or crystalline or epics. :O

I bought the gargantuan island for my main Android park. It's been fun decorating it. I made it into a DV theme park. Set up all the shrines and put their flags next to them, then made a pathway around and through. Lined up the rest of the flags on a walkway to the anniversary statues. After that is the colosseum and racetrack, Farris wheel, bouncy mushroom, and hot air balloon. I also added the dragon inn, olde buffett, water fountains and benches.
Along the top part of the island I put the farms, treatery, storage tower, fountain of youth and the greenhouse. I even had room for the crystal palace. There's plenty of room left for the little touches of plants, flowers, trees etc.

Wishing you all the best,

(Get THE island, lol)

I finally gave in and got the weather station for my main iPad park. I thought each setting would have different music but they are all the same. Is it from the event? It also sounds really weird. I keep the music turned off but turned it on to try out the weather station.

Next in line is "the island" and more fun decorating. :D

Welcome back! I've missed you on here, my friend. I have noticed the theme music - very 'warp-ed' - I love it! I don't think it's your wx station, I think it's the event. Glad to see you back here - I'm sure it has been a hectic time.

I'll have to visit your park to see what you did with the Gargantuan Island! I don't have anything on mine but some treat farms and the new decor - I'll be excited to see what you have.

I'll be VERY BUSY the next few days finishing up the library project and my sister coming. I do wish all of you what you wish for in the upcoming days! Later!

It has been a hectic month and finally I'm taking a week 'off' to spend with my sister who arrived the night of our first (of two) back to back parties for the summer readers. She has been a trooper with helping me put on the finishing touches and today is a sewing/mowing/organ day. (She plays for her church back home and will be practicing today at one of our local churches). While she's doing that, I'm going to be mowing my garden area (SADLY NEGLECTED OF LATE) and try to get some laundry done. We did manage to pick quite a few green beans and AWESOME cherry tomatoes on Sunday night (after the first bottle of wine). She loves to cook and has really delighted hubby and I with two really good dinners since she's been here. I took her to Fremont yesterday to a new sushi place I'm pretty fond of, and we had a good lunch and did the monthly grocery shopping - I'm sure that's what she really wants to do on her vacation!

The summer reading program was a huge success for the children; we had two great parties, one to celebrate the reading and one to celebrate all the hard work they did in the garden to make the community better. I've never been more proud of a group of readers than I am of this group. I don't know of another library in the US that asks its young participants to perform manual labor in 90 - 100 degree weather! They did a spectacular job and the garden looks great. Now I'm on break for a week and am glad of it. Even though there are MANY things that need to be done around here - I will not have to stop doing any of them to get ready for work.

DRM - BFS really needs to get a move on DVW. I'm stuck. Can't collect DC, can't grow food for 24 hours at a time; can't send off airships without losing lots of DC, no room for more decor/habitats (to spend the money, to collect it). So I'm down to playing dragons once a day in my main park because I can't do anything. I will try "Merge Dragons" but I will totally blame you if it sucks up more time than DV!!!! :)

OK - off to check the guineas and start some laundry. OBTW - any thoughts on spending my wishes to get a Rift habitat (or two) or see what the "Faire" prizes bring???? I've been saving up my magic in hopes they'll put out a new habitat.

Take care, all!

You both need to do the following: Facebook friend each other.
Link your games to Facebook, (Tap the Social icon in DV. If Facebook button is red, tap it and follow instructions to link your game. If it's blue, your game is already linked.)
Sign out of Facebook (use Facebook itself, not the in-game setting) and close DV.
Restart your devices, sign in to Facebook, start DV.
Make sure DV is logged in to Facebook by tapping the Social button. The Facebook button should be blue. If it's red tap it to sign in.
You should now show up in each other's DV friends list. :-)

Time sure does fly by doesn't it?! I can't believe it's already the first week of August, but I must say it's nice not having to worry about all the 'back to school' stuff now! And not too much longer until the end of the event so I'm really glad they gave us another doubles weekend-thank you BFS!

GPK got a good chuckle out of your LOLx2! I'd say you're doing pretty well if mixing up two bands is the worst of your 'old age'! Hubby isn't a fan of PF either but he wants to get back to taking lessons again to improve his Blues playing and also learn more about music theory etc.

DG wow you've been busy! How wonderful to be able to spend time with your sister and take a break from work too! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! So, sadly no new rift habitats but I guess you never know...maybe they'll be available for BEB and you can save your wish!

DRM I keep trying to see your gargantuan island you decorated but the park it sent me to didn't have one. Is this a case of it 'sends me to the park you're currently logged in to'?

I've been working on my new big island too and for now have turned it into a big Seasonal/Gem and Crystalline island. I do wonder what's coming up from BFS though and hope there's not a ton of new habitats and dragons I'll need the space for.

Dreamn's picture

It's in my main Android park but yes, when you visit, you see the park I'm currently playing or the last one played. I wish they would all show up like they do in DVW. In order for you to see my Android parks we need to be Facebook friends, which would be awesome!
