I've seen the black boxes a lot on my iPad. It's an iPad Pro and fully up to date so I know it's not the iPad. I was on the verge of writing BFS.
I decided to search for a possible solution before writing BFS. "RAM is full" and "update graphics card" were the common responses. DV is a RAM intensive game. It uses a LOT. So does your browser in storing your history. I had to clear my browser history for an unrelated reason. When I opened DV next all the special Rift effects were working.
So, something to consider if having trouble with special effects or your game is running slow. Clear your browser history.

Best wishes,

Just a comment on the Portent dragon:

If you want to generate lots of cash, stockpile Portent dragons. Portent dragons are really easy to breed once you get 2 of them. I have 68 portent dragons for generating income. Yeah, large dream habitats are expensive, but you'll make plenty. My park income is over 150 million coins per day.

Also November is coming up, Topaz is the easiest gemstone dragon to breed due to the short failure times. I bred 10 Topaz dragons in Nov 2014. Did not regret spending a month breeding Topaz dragons. That's been a huge gem boast for the last couple years.

Current Goal: All level 20 dragons
Progress: 405/405 dragons, Level 100
Recent Success: Singularity

Sent y'all an email of something found on the DragonVale Pro Board. Please forward.
Will check into feeding dragons transferred to the vale and see if it's less than feeding them while in the Rift.

Nope, same skyrocketed feeding cost for Rift dragons. I didn't transfer one. Instead I tapped a Rift already in the vale. What a huge huge cost increase! (Why BFS?!) However, so far, they can be leveled up with Bahamut or Tiamat.

I saw on Facebook someone bred it with Sun and Solarflare. Also mentioned, it's being gifted to players reaching level 100. No word on how long BFS will be gifting it.

It is also possible that breeding rift dragons will result in regular dragons. There's no guarantee that breeding Rift + Rift = Rift, even in the Rift breeding cave. However, to get a Rift dragon you must use the Rift cave.

To move dragons to or from the Rift takes 2 hours. This can be sped up with etherium (E) only. Kairos has no effect. It takes a lot of E. to upgrade habitats. To save space, consider moving a dragon in each direction, swapping them out.

With DV and DVW both being drastically changed at the same time, I'm going to have to cut back somewhere. This is way too much to manage in 7 DV parks and 3 DVW. I've decided to discontinue playing DVW. Thank you all for the gems and for your help in playing Dragon Vale World.

For DragonVale, I'm only going to be playing the main iPad and main Android parks. The others are going to be stored. It will take a bit longer to rotate gifts since I will be playing both parks on the iPad instead of using my phone for Facebook friends and iPad for Game Center friends.

To move one of your Rift dragons from the vale to the Rift tap on the Rift gate. Select the "move dragon" icon. It has 2 arrows pointing opposite directions. A selection box will open. Tap the top one for "To Rift". Tap on the dragon you wish to move. Tap "select" and then "yes". It takes 2 hours but can be sped up using Etherium.

Moving a dragon from the Rift to the vale follows the same steps, just tap "To Park" instead.

You can move one from the Rift to vale and one from the vale to Rift at the same time.

Like this game wasn't fun enough and we didn't have enough to do... :-( This is gonna take even more time...don't know if I'll wanna put in the extra time...they may have lost a player...

I was wondering WTH you were gonna do with all of your different games until I read your post...

I don't know if I'll ever have all the Dragons again or let alone get all the Peds...

Feeding up these Rifters is 10x as expensive as a regular...thanks BFS (a little sarcasm there) Glad I got all the Rifters when I did an fed 'em up to at least Level 17.

Still haven't figured out what the object of this "upgrade" is all about?????

Email: rkchurch64_at_gmaildotcom

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

Dreamn's picture

Here's my take...
A lot of players are maxed and seldom have anything to try for unless there's an event or new dragon. They're bored. By making the rift dragons more challenging to breed and feed, BFS is giving them something to do over a long period of time, essentially slowing them down. Just like if you have all twins the dragonarium breathes blue fire, if you have all rifts, it breathes a different color fire. The habitats in the Rift don't count against the limit. This makes it easier to find places for them for the players collecting all rifts. Just think, nearly 1200 dragons if you have all of them: regular, twin, rift. :-)

During the event I had to put DVW on hold. It didn't take long before playing 7 parks in DV became more like a chore than a game. It wasn't much fun. It wasn't any fun at all. I didn't have time to enjoy watching the antics or visit friends. Collect coins, find the flaggers, find aaaaall those gifts, keep track of the prizes I could get in each park, repeat 6 times. I was glad when it was over. I resumed DVW a few days ago. When BFS made huge upgrades in DVW and DV, I thought of dropping both games completely. Decided instead to stop DVW and scale back DV. The main reason being you guys. I love trying to help others and do my best. I can't do that if I'm not playing. :-)

I hope you keep playing. It wouldn't be the same without you. If there's anything I can do to help with the rifts please ask. If I don't know I'll look in the forums, wiki, etc and see if we can figure it out. :-D

dreamn10 at gmail dot com

Grandpa Kenny's picture

...your take makes sense.

Earlier, I got a gift of 2X Experience Points from BFS so, I feed up a bunch of Dragons to Level 20 and quickly got to Level 100 and, sure enough, I got the Solarflare the next time I started the game. I have selected it so you all can use it to breed one :-)

Oh yes, getting to Level 100 gets you D$100,000 :-)

Well, a very (to me) confusing and expensive upgrade to the Vale! GPK, I will keep playing, but I do agree with DRM - they're making us "slow down" a bit. It is very expensive to breed/feed the rift dragons and what is one supposed to do with them? It costs so much "E" to clear the fog, and breeding Rift dragons is a very expensive venture. Yes, slowed us down, but waaaaaaaaay down - don't know if I like having to pay to breed dragons. And waiting two hours to move a dragon? Hmmmm. DRM - how is the best way to play this? The Rift habitats (for use in the Rift only - 40 of which are available to purchase) would seem the best place to hold the new hybrids - like I got a Quicksilver Rift yesterday....I was going to move him to the regular park, but he only earns 12 coins an hour...seems to be more effective to keep the hybrids up in the rift to earn "E". Thoughts?

My gargantuan island is just about filled and I'm almost done clearing the new island as well. Good on them for releasing a new island! I'll need to put Rainbow or Dream dragons there to keep earning cash to keep growing food to feed all the new dragons!!!!! I must say, I'm still enjoying it although they have definitely thrown a wrench in the works with the expense.

It has been just as busy as ever here. Garden is shutting down and I'm painting our little library. That is a lot of books and cases to move and I've been up there every day this week working on that.

Off with me for awhile - have to hit the shower, start some laundry, and head back to the library. I'm going to try to get it finished so I can go home to AR for a week or so - I'm homesick!!! :)

You all take care, and I'll try to catch up later.

I confess I'm struggling with this. I've been playing almost since the beginning...over 5 years, and I'm just confused as all get out over what to do with the rift. I'm actually thinking of giving up DV! It's the only game I play. Sigh. This upgrade was a just a bit too complicated for me....

This is gonna take up waaaay too much time. Just to Move Dragons into the Rift takes 2 hours and then you have to match them to the Rift Alignment to make your Breeding odds better but then, the Alignment only lasts for a day but you can change it for E$4,000 and the Rift Dragons which are breeding targets are on timers...don't know how we'll ever get them all...

Dragon Grower's picture

I'm no expert at all on this (DRM is the person to talk to!). Yes, you can only breed Rift Dragons in the Rift, so you'll have to move dragons to breed them. The "Rift Alignment" will tell you what is 'active' at the time - I moved my Air Dragon today and got Kampos first time out - problem now is where to put him! It is confusing to me, too, and I've only been playing for a couple of years....

How did you breed Kampos? I have spent lots of E moving my dragons back and forth trying to breed something special to no avail :( I keep getting poison, flower, blazing, pepper. A couple have been new rift dragons but I'm also getting normal dragons which I am releasing so I can recover more E. Quite frustrating! I can't understand how to breed. Can anyone help this Aussie in distress :)

Happy to add DV friends but cannot give gems

I found on another website the following combos to breed Kampos. I haven't tried them yet. Light Rift and Water Rift or Water Rift and Current. I am thinking you would probably need to be in the water Rift alignment to breed that. I assume that is the purpose of the different alignments???

Grandpa Kenny's picture

1) get as many Regular Rift Habitats as you can and Upgrade them to Reputable Rift Habitats so it will hold 2 Dragons...this will cost E$500 per upgrade. Upgrading it to a Revitalized Rift Habitat is another E$1,000 and it will then hold 3 Dragons.
2) Move your new Rift Dragons (the ones you got from the last event) to these Rift Habitats. If you only have a couple of Regular Rift Habitats, then move Dragons from your Main Park to these Rift Habitats in advance of the upcoming change of the Rift Alignment...this is to lower the odds of Breeding your Target Dragon and should keep you from having to scramble around in that 2 hour window (4 hours if you're moving 2 Dragons).

Dreamn's picture

GPK great idea on getting rift habitats and moving the rift dragons to the Rift. I recommend the same. The more dragons you have there the faster you can build up E$. You can speed up the 2 hour move with E$.

Unless you want to collect all 300+ dragons in the Rift variety (not necessary to breath fire) there's really no need to collect the copied hybrid rifts at this time. (Poison, pollen etc), unless of course you don't have the normal hybrid. The Rift version should count in your dragonarium towards the total dragon count, just like twins. Focus on moving the rifts you have into the Rift. The new rift dragons have no time limit.

RAH please hang in there, we can figure this out together. :-)

JAYTEE focus on moving your rift dragons from the Vale to the Rift. Use your E$ for habitats to start off but try to breed at least one of the new ones per day. The first breed attempt is only 1 E$. You can have 40 habitats in the Rift and they don't count towards the Vale habitat limit.

Trade the dragons you don't want for E$ before hatching them. If you hatch them and place in a habitat then you can only sell them for coins, not etherium.

Edit: Oops, forgot to mention, the Swirls containing E$ are sometimes hidden behind habitats or other movable items in the Rift. Be sure and move them to check. :-)

DG thanks for the compliment. *blushes* . It's my honor to help and I really do try hard to find the answers.

I reached level 100! :D woohoo! SolarFlare is in the nest, oh yeah! I did something I've never tried before, speed farming, lol. I had quite a stash of treats, for me anyway. I activated the XP gift from BFS and fed up some top earners. I needed some treats to finish one more dragon to reach level 100. I used gems, 10 at a pop, for beanstalks. :D
I not only got Snowpocalypse to level 20 and my park to 100, but, all that feeding leveled up Kairos and he's now advancing time by 12 hours.

Hang in there everyone. The Coop and galactic dragons were once new concepts and yet they were figured out and now it's like they've always been there. We can do the same with the Rift. :D

I erred in an earlier post when I said that the new target Rift Dragons were on a timer. I mistook the Rift symbol for the Hourglass (which indicates that that Dragon is available for a limited time). Thank you DRMN for pointing that out...and an 'Attagirl' for getting to 100!

The new update has been a complete mystery to me.

I don't post very often but I do follow along with the happenings here.

I was fortunate enough to have already leveled up most of my rift dragons to at least 17 which has made it a little easier to earn E in the Rift.

I have yet to figure out how to breed the new dragons and with the breeding cost so high I have a feeling it is going to be a while before I get the hang of it.

Thank you to all of you who have posted. Your information has been so much help so far. Please know that you are much appreciated!!!

Hi everyone, long time no chat. Glad that you guys have kept this going; real life keeps getting in my way. However let me say "ARRGGG" at Rift. I'm just as confused as many and probably more so than most.. So GPK, what did you use to breed a water rift?? I've been all stressing out bc I got the all hybrid dragons in the event and missed getting 3 of the primary rifts. Thought I'd be able to breed them later in the co-op. Guess that 's what I get for thinking.

...but I can't even remember how I got it! I feel so stupid...I must have bred it somehow... I tried to use the Sandbox to help me figure it out but the Sandbox is kinda Wonky and say it can't be bred now. At the time I got it, I only had Plant Rift, Fire Rift & Earth Rift in the Rift so I can't see how I could have bred it with those combinations but I must have unless I got it as a gift...I did have to feed it up to Level 4 to breed it with the Water Rift I got in the last event...Sorry, I'll try to remember...

Aaaaaaaaaaa!!! Glad I'm not the only one confused by this rift thing. Thank you DRM and GPK for posting some tips. I'm like you GPK and a few others, not sure I'll be sticking with the whole rift thing. It's ridiculously expensive, confusing and daunting to think about starting all over again in collecting all the dragons. Too bad they didn't have two dragonariums so that we could still get all the regular dragons and breathe fire and not play the rift version if we didn't want to. I personally like how relaxing the game is when you're not scrambling to breed a bunch of dragons. My son now doesn't see an end in sight of ever accomplishing his goal of having all the dragons and that's sad.

DG got your forward, thank you, and sent you an email. :-)

Kaleido15's picture

Ditto for me per everyone's comments on the rift. Confusing and expensive. It would have been ok to start an alternate world but this one is too confusing. It looks like some but not all the regular dragons can now have a rift element. Does that mean we need to collect these in addition to the rifts? If so there will not be enough room anywhere without spending real cash. I spend enough now so can't add too much more per my budget. Darn as I was almost there with the other dragons. Feels like a real setback. I hope the intentions were good and they weren't getting greedy for more income on the game. I have deleted many other apps when they set you up where you can't win or progress without a lot of real dollars. I don't mind spending some but not when it gets too much. But I'll try here awhile and see where it goes.

Kaleido15

Dreamn's picture

You do not need a Rift variant of every dragon to breathe fire, only the ones listed in the dragonarium. However, having a Rift of each variety will cause the dragonarium to breathe fire of a different color, just like having all twins causes it to breathe blue fire.

Dreamn

dreamn10 at gmail dot com

Grandpa Kenny's picture

...that each time you breed in the Rift, the cost multiplies for each successive breeding? And if you breed a worthless one and sell it back, you only get E$100 back?

This Rift 'stuff' is expensive and time consuming and if you want to speed things up its really expensive.

And now, on some Dragons in the Vale, they show you a Dragon's earnings in E$ but you can't Move that Dragon into the Rift, so what's the point? AND, you don't know how many regular D$ the Dragon earns until you move it to a Habitat.

Wanna know why they put in this Rift 'stuff'? The same answer you come up with to most "why" questions: "Follow The Money". Now, I admit that, over the years, I have spent some actual $...not a fortune but if everyone who plays this game spent as much as I have, BFS would be bigger than Microsoft!

They took what was a relaxing, fun, easy to understand game, without the stress of competition and ruined it.

Color me DISGUSTED!

Don't feel bad about not remembering water rift combo. Thought maybe I'd get a shot at one of those 3 primaries I missed. I'm sure I'll get it by hook or crook some time (or by spending a bunch of E$ down the road). Have one wish now and another soon; that will help but goin to wait and see how things pan out before I do that though. Thanks and good luck!

I too am very confused on how to breed the NEW dragons in the rift. I keep trying. I am not confused on why they are doing it.......it's all about the money, and I am very sad. I have spent my share of money on DV, but this is ridiculous! DV was my place were I could go to get away and be creative and have fun. Been playing DV since the beginning and always loved it. This new rift is not fun!

Excellent idea - to inundate BFS with emails concerning what a mess the Rift is! I just sent a lengthy email too. C'mon Everybody! It only takes 2 minutes, and it's our only hope of saving Dragonvale!!!!! Think of it like one of the quests - only instead of dragons maybe we could gain a Rift we could actually enjoy.

BFS seems to be making gradual improvements to the Rift . It's probably just a matter of time. We can now win E$ in the quests and races. Kairos is speeding up the Rift habitats so they max out. The real problem is that it's new and a slower process than in the park itself. With all of us working together we will get it sorted.

I just remembered...I got that Water Rift as a gift...it gave me a choice and just by luck I picked Water Rift. Boy, seems like the older I get, the worse my CRS (Can't Remember 'Stuff') gets.

Well, peeps coming out of the woodwork (or the Rift) on this new update! DRM - we can't thank you enough for all the info you provide us - you are so appreciated! And congrats on your Plumewing! I'll be trying that shortly.

FP - got your e-mail; seems I keep apologizing for not writing you back, I'm sure you understand - I did send you a very short one tonight!

GPK - Broncos???? Playing very well and loved the game against the Cowboys last night! (Sorry DRM). But right now I'm not too impressed with the Giants as I'm watching Detroit schwack them, but it's early in the game...

OK - back to the Rift with me - I am finding that I really like the pedestals and will collect those instead of the 'blah, blah something hybrid with a whatever trait". I am going to try for the actual 'new' rift dragons instead of all the hybrids. I just like how the pedestals glow!

I have moved my 'primary' Rift dragons to the Rift and will go from there!

You all take care and I'll keep checking in! Thanks again DRM for all the great info and I agree - everyone hang in there - we'll figure it out!

Thank YOU DG, we will get the hang of it. Anything new takes patience, time, and teamwork. Your park totally impresses me every time I visit!

Rift dragons earn $E equal to their level per hour. At level one, 1 E per hour, level two 2 E per hour, etc. For a less expensive method to level up the rifts move them to the vale and use the Mythics, Tiamat and Bahamut.

Hey my friend Dream.....are you sure you really aren't one of the wizards that lived in the Vale that used a wish to pop out and play with us? Lol.....you know so much information! It boggles my mind. What the heck is a mythic? How do you use them to level up a rift ? Sounds like magic to me.......the kind only a wizard would know. I'm on to you.....a little Wizzling you are. Lol

Lol...maybe ;-)

Tiamat and Bahamut are Mythic dragons. Use them to level up the Rifts instead of treats. The Rift dragons must be in the Vale. Tiamat and Bahamut cannot level up dragons that are in the Rift.

You can now get etherium through racing or quests.

It is now possible to move 2 dragons to/from the Rift in the same time span. Select a dragon then scroll up inside the "to Rift " or "to Park" box to select the next dragon. At this time you can only move 2 dragons as follows: 2 to the Rift, OR 2 to your park , OR 1 to the Rift AND 1 to your park.

Kairos now affects Rift habitats. I tried in 2 parks. In both, the habitats were full, in 1 there were also swirls. He did not affect the move time of the dragons heading to the Rift. Be sure and collect E before / after activating Kairos. :-)

Another one who lurks mostly, just wanted to say thanks to Dreamn and others who put up all this useful information, especially with the rift which has properly bamboozled me! It really helps to have all this extra information!

Once upon a time, I had all the dragons! Will it ever happen again? Goodness knows......!

Glad to help :-)

Please email me and I will send you a helpful guide saved from Facebook. It's too long to post in the forum. I didn't make it but am sharing it with whoever would like a copy.

I emailed you a bit ago. I would love to have this guide. I am not having ANY luck with the new dragons. Im sitting on the same fence as several other long timers. It's putting me off wanting to play.

Wow.....I feel like an armature ! Even though I have played DV since the beginning. The light bulb came on this morning about the mythics. With all that's going on I had forgotten about those two beauties. They are two of my favorites. I just wish that when we finished the stain glass of Bahamut they would of let us put it in our park..Just a thought. It was so beautiful.
But anyway........still having trouble breeding in the rift. Maybe that light bulb will pop on soon too! I hope BF is planning something for Halloween in the main park.

Happy Dragons

I'm sure they will have a Halloween event and soon after that the Om-of-Noms. It's a good idea to be saving coins to take advantage of treat growing season.

"Well! This is not quite what the wizards expected would happen when they attempted to close the Rift. Your contributions during the Roar of the Rift helped to prevent a second Cataclysm, but there's still some chaotic magic at work. Remember Roger from the Department of Magical Storage? Yeah... he, uh, might be stuck on the other side of the Rift right now. But don't worry, we'll get him out! As soon as we figure out how. In the meantime, assuming he hasn't been magically spaghettified, he's probably learning a lot about how the Rift work, so there's that! Hang in there, Roger."

Spaghettified is one of my favorite words. A friend learned of it while reading a book on space and black holes. "In astrophysics, spaghettification (sometimes referred to as the noodle effect) is the vertical stretching and horizontal compression of objects into long thin shapes (rather like spaghetti) in a very strong non-homogeneous gravitational field; it is caused by extreme tidal forces." ~ wiki ~ Squeezed in and stretched up/ down at the same time.

Hopefully Roger is snuggling up with dragons in someone's hibernation cave.
