MJ here comes your event!

Whitbees starts tomorrow. You'll need to update your game. The update also lets Tiamat and Bahamut level dragons that are in the Rift.

Good luck on the event!

GPK....I too have one wish on hold. I always have used my wishes on new islands because they cost so much. This time I am not sure. I have one island right now that is pretty much empty. So. I am not sure ?

Dream.... yes, I am so excited for this event. I see there are four new dragons. Hot dang!
And some new decorations and a new path. It feels like early Xmas.

DG...wish we lived near to each other. My new house has a really neat place that is set up for a garden and I just know nothing about growing food. My grandparents would be ashamed of me because they were farmers in SE Colorado. Guess I will have to look up some gardening books and give it a run in the spring. Yikes!!!

Hey guys, do any of you know what ever became of IPK ? I used to talk with her on this site and I still have her on my friends list but she doesn't play anymore. I miss her.

Happy Dragons
MJ

I miss her as all of you do. I think she is working a job which requires travel and is very busy although for someone who knew so much about Dragonvale and published a book about it and then just abandoned the game without a word...I don't get it. She was very helpful to me a couple of years ago.

IPK does frequently post on various topics on the website Quora under her real name (Quora requires use of your real name). She is one of the smartest people I have ever had the pleasure to know... I just hope that all of her medical problems have been taken care of...

To MJ: my strategy on wishes was the same as yours...use 'em on Islands because of the cost but a while ago, when I was just one Dragon short of having them all (the Ortreat, which wasn't gonna be available again for a few months), I used a wish to get it. I haven't really 'gotten into' this rift business except to get a bunch of Islands, fill 'em up with Dragons and collect E$. When I finally do get my bu++ in gear and get serious about the Rift I'm gonna need an updatable 'crib sheet' with info on how to breed those little 'Rifters'.

No problems here...but now I've got my fingers crossed...can you communicate to other internet apps?

I'm on a cable tv system from which I get cable tv, telephone & Internet. Charter/Spectrum, the network, supplies a cable box, and a modem...I have my own wireless router. Every now and then, I lose contact to one or more of their services and the first thing I do is reboot them (unplug all of them and plug them back in). Doing that often fixes the problem.

Good luck...

Hello to all... quick question (unrelated to DV) for our northern friends. Can someone who’s 19 but has a valid temporary drivers permit (but not a full drivers license) gamble in Canada, specifically in Niagara Falls? Tried to find the answer via internet but no luck. Any help is greatly appreciated!

MJ -yes, I wish we could be DV friends as well! We’ll have to try to figure out something!

GPK love your ending of ‘this rift thing’, lol!

DG , DRM, KL, Carolyn hope you are all well!

It would be best for him to use a passport, not just for proof of age but for crossing back to the US.

Identification requirements for U. S. citizens and permanent residents

"If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you must carry proof of citizenship such as a passport, birth certificate, a certificate of citizenship or naturalization, a U.S. Permanent Resident Card, or a Certificate of Indian Status along with photo identification. If you are a U.S. permanent resident, ensure you carry proof of your status such as a U.S. Permanent Resident Card."

What do you suppose they mean when they are saying "Please Reload While We Try To Handle This"? Do they want us to reload our game?

I have been trying to find this dragon for a couple months now. I actually quit the game for a little bit just because I coundn't find how to breed it. HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!! Any successful combinations i will try thank you!!!!!!

Dreamn's picture

The breeding app suggests Cold Rift and Fire (regular fire, not the Rift version). You'll need to move your Cold Rift dragon to your park and use the cave or the island. If you don't have a Cold Rift have a friend put one in coop for you.

Other options are Fire with any of these: conifer, evergreen, frost flower or lichen.

Try the sandbox at dvbox.bin.sh/about.html for more dragon combos.
There's also the Breeding Guide for DragonVale in the AppStore or Play Store

Good luck!

Sounds like an interesting song choice, especially after Pink Floyd! What does he hope you glean from this one? Do you keep practicing the ‘old’ ones as you learn techniques from the new songs?

You all mentioned IPK...sure miss her too, her stories of her pond friends, her cheeriness as she shared things with us! I too hope she’s well and will come back sometime soon. (IPK if you ever read these, DWTS isn’t the same without you!)

Wow - I missed an entire page of posts! Shame On Me.

Lovin’ the new event - I had problems logging in today, too - but they did seem to fix themselves. New dragons, new decorations, and a bone path - nice..... :)

GPK - we had our first freeze night before last - the garden is officially dead and I didn’t have to do anything! Pity, that, because I still have green tomatoes on the vine. With the weather outlook for the next 10 days I may as well let the rabbits have them. Your Rutgers short-version story was still pretty cool. Four years, eh? Did I miss your major in the post?

DRM - dilly, dilly right back atcha!!! You do delve into all subjects don’t you? Travel, passports, DV, etc...what a smart DRM cookie you are! And busy, busy, busy I imagine! How’s your mom doing?

FP - oh my dear - I still have your e-mail in the inbox just waiting for me to answer it. I’m heading to Arkansas in two days - don’t hold your breath (oh, like you were really doing that anyway, right? :) ). My new kitchen floor is AWESOME and when I get back I’ll be ready to start working on the rest of it. The contractor has some trim work (unrelated to the floor) to do in the kitchen before I start but I’ll be ready to start cracking on it. With the library done I feel good about heading south for a week or so, but of course the stress comes back in when I realize my hubby will be trying to take care of all the animals - something he’s not done before - well, at least in a very long time and that was before guineas. We did a night routine at the Ghetto tonight; I mean it’s not hard it just has to be done. Breaks up his routine and he really doesn’t like that!

MJ - I can only echo the others’ comments about IPK - I do miss her and haven’t had any contact with her now in well over a year. And let us not forget our Boo 91!!!! They just disappeared from the forum....I’m so excited for you about your house. I did a lot of research on plants and growing (since I’m a southern gal) in this Zone 4/5 climate of ours in NE. I have successfully grown: potatoes, onions, carrots, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, lettuce, tomatoes, okra, radishes, green beans, zucchini, asparagus sweet corn and summer squash. What zone are you in? Get a Farmer’s Almanac - I learned a lot from that little book. Planting by lunar cycles, organic pest control, companion planting, when to plant what in your area, etc. I get one every year and also go on their website for additional information. I truly can’t say enough about companion planting! My tomatoes and asparagus both really took off this year. I was harvesting (and I am not exaggerating here) over 100 cherry tomatoes A DAY from two plants during the warm weather - they just kept growing and growing and growing. And even today when I went out, I still have green ones on the larger tomato plants I haven’t pulled up yet. Give it a go, find out what works for you and oh - fertilizer really helps!

DRM - I can’t keep track of the hurricanes/tropical storms (I think we’re at 10 now this year?) but have you been impacted at all? I know you’re in TX but you seem to get more of the tornado stuff, right?

So it’s been in the 40’s here (and some in the 30’s ) at night with 60’s in the daytime...I looked at the forecast for AR next week and it’s still in the 80’s and 90’s there during the day. I’m going to fry....

OK - off to the Vale before bed; thought I’d stop in and say ‘hey’. You all take care - enjoy the event and get those new dragons!!! KKDB!!

Thank you. She wasn't technically asking me but I can't help myself. I have to research it, I just have to! I LOVE doing online research. I've been to Canada but it was in the 90's, back when it was reasonably easy to go either direction at the border with only a driver license. Now it's more sensible to have a passport.

Mom is ok physically but I never know what's going to happen. Each day has its own challenges. You really have to think ahead and try to second guess the reactions and results of everything you do and say as well as where to put everything. Sometimes creativity is a must, something I'm not that good with. I try though, it's all I can do. Prayers are always welcome and much appreciated.

We are north enough that we rarely get anything serious from hurricanes. The spring storms are our biggest pain. Especially when you're as scared of them as I am. My iPad and phone are loaded with weather apps lol.

The geek in me can't say anything bad about the iPad Pencil. I get so sad when the battery goes that I wish I had two of them. Thankfully they charge fast. The precision is awesome, especially in the games where things like to hide. I may be asking Santa for one unless something else comes up more awesome or cool.

The event runs through November 2.
The free gifts end on October 31.
On day 10 you get a choice between the Trick and Ortreat dragons.
Day 20: choice of Bone, Ghost, Nosferatu, Lycan, Spectre, Bog, Thicket, Garden, or Decay. ( Something to keep in mind before purchasing the dragons or peds from the prizes.)
Prizes are available to purchase through November 4. Leftover candy will be converted to coins on November 5 at a rate of 1000 coins per candy.

This event has an even smaller banking window of 2 days. However, Om-of-Noms is coming up so some extra coins might come in handy for growing treats.

Enjoy the event :-)

I was "undeclared" for the first year but took Finance courses. Then, after attending a lecture given by Michael Shaara, the author of "Killer Angels", a great novel about Robert E. Lee, James Longstreet and Josuaha Chamberlain at Gettysburg, I declared History and from then on, I took a History course and a Computer course each semester...I could have & might have declared in Computer Science/Information Processing if I had finished...

Yes indeed, today is the Navy's birthday.

"The U.S. Navy turns 242 years-old today. On October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress commissioned two ships, each with eighty sailors, “for intercepting such transports as may be laden with warlike stores and other supplies for our enemies.” The foe at the time was Great Britain, whose navy ruled the seas. By the end of the Revolutionary War, the Continental Navy had grown to about fifty ships. In 1789, the U.S. Constitution guaranteed the navy’s future by granting Congress the power “To provide and maintain a navy.” "

The Business/Finance/Accounting/Banking courses gave me the knowledge of how the business world worked. Without that, just knowing a programming language wasn't worth much. The greatest programming language was COBOL (COmmon Business Oriented Language). Programming in COBOL was like telling the computer what to do in English! e.g.
READ-ACCOUNT-FILE.
READ ACCOUNT-FILE AT END GO TO WRAP-UP.
IF ACCOUNT-BALANCE IS GREATER THAN 5000 THEN
MULTIPLY ACCOUNT-BALANCE BY 0.075 GIVING INTEREST-EARNED
WRITE ACCOUNT-RECORD.
GO TO READ-ACCOUNT-FILE.
WRAP-UP.
(perform end of job routines)
STOP RUN.
The invention of the COBOL programming language is primarily credited to Grace Hopper, Admiral, USN, sometime in the late 1950's.

I didn't make it to COBOL. Basic was the programming class I started with, then life happened. Loved, loved, loved writing the programs! When I went back, 30 years later, I was fortunate enough to take digital programming. I couldn't get enough. It was fun and challenging. I took accounting in high school and it was my secondary choice for a degree. History wasn't required for my electronics program, but it was a favorite in high shool. Algebra and trig with electronics based problems plus physics. I was on cloud 9. I had to change jobs which meant changing schools and finishing my associates online. I started with DeVry who doesn't have a very good rep any more. Their financial aide department was not easy to work with . The instructors were top notch and really knew their subject. I wish I could have finished there. It's so much better learning in person than going online and practically teaching yourself.

DRM so you really ARE a spy! I didn’t even mention male or female and you said ‘him’ ;-) I’m so glad I saw DG’s message that mentioned you searching passport stuff or I would’ve completely missed your message. How sweet, thank you so much for trying to find an answer for us! We knew you had to have a passport/passport card to get into Canada but I wasn’t sure if that or a temp license would be accepted as ID specifically to be able to go in a ca-sino. Kudos to you and GPK for all your technie knowledge that we also benefit from! If you ever had need of knowledge related to kids/preschoolers I’d be your girl, that’s where my passion and training are with a minor in organization! Love it!

DG what’d you think about yesterday’s game; Bucks v Huskers? Have a great time and stay under the shade while in Arkansas! Lol, oh gosh, it is rather brave of you to leave all
the critters in your husband’s care although I’m sure he’ll step up since it’s pretty much life and death on the line here! Right?! And I agree, mustn’t forget Boo91 (or Lynn, Sandie and Sandy).

RT welcome back and congrats on your new dragons!!

KL Happiest of birthdays to you!

GPK so what is your favorite guitar exercise and least favorite? My son is interested in learning piano (had played drums for a bit), much to his dad’s dismay he didn’t want to learn guitar. Figures, but I appreciate that he wants to do his own thing.

Well, safe and sound at my mom’s house in AR. Had a great visit with my only bro last night in Kansas and finished up the trip today. I’m worn out and nerve-wracked from all the traffic/construction around Fayetteville and closer to home as well. I didn’t even get to Vale (or any other games) this morning, but I loved spending time with my brother and his family.

I just went through the vale and guess what??? I FINALLY got Plumewing!!! Air and Plant with Rift set to Air. YAY!!!

I am trying hard not to buy any event dragons or decorations yet; seems they always pull a surprise then I never have enough (candy) to get them! So I’m going to hold off. I’m not seeing a timer on any of the prize categories (please let me know if I missed them!!!). Tomorrow I’m just hanging out with my mom; her heart scare is over - only meaning the blood pressure and pulse rate are now under control - turns out it was a lot of things causing it but they’ve figured it out and she is much better and we may even do some light shopping (close to home) tomorrow. Barring that; I’ll see if my sister is home (I think she only has Thursday’s off) and try to hook up with a school friend while I’m here as well.

Off to bed with me after two long days on the road.

FP - of note, you’re right - it is a life/death situation! But to make matters worse, hubby is sick...I’ve told him over the last two days how much I appreciate him taking care of everything and especially the added responsibility of all the animals - something he’s NOT familiar with at all. He would never do anything to neglect or hurt them, just not care for them the way I would. And as there is nothing I can do about it from down here I choose not to worry about it. Oh hey! BTW - did you see where PBS/Masterpiece is doing a US Downton Abbey exhibition? It starts in NY on 18 Nov and will be travelling the US for quite a while. I don’t know what cities/states will host it but go to the PBS website and take a peek.

I’ll try to catch up on posts later in the week but am not promising anything! You all take care!

The OSU v NU game was what I call 'Child Abuse'. The best game this weekend was the Air Force win over UNLV...AF was down 27-7 at the half and 30-7 in the 3rd qtr.

FP - Actually, I like all the exercises my teacher has given me. The p, ima exercises (ask hubby what these are) have really helped me and I'm sort of experiencing a 'break through'.

Even though I live in Colo, I was born in PA so I have an undieing love for all the Pennsy teams. Wanna have a friendly wager on the PSU v OSU game?

Wow......I am loving having the new event to take my mind off the fact that I can't breed any of the new dragons in the Rift. It is soooooooo agrevating! One of the new ones has to have a plasma dragon from the rift and I can't even breed it.......dang ! !

I was lucky and had one of the Spooky habitats in my storage. I have been putting all the new spooky dragons in it. I have not purchased the new path yet but I saw it in one of my friends park, it so cool so I will be doing that next.

Well......happy Dragons to all of you. If you know a combo from the rift to breed a plasma let me know.

I'm surprised they didn't blame it on the poor Lightning dragon.

Greetings all! Having a wonderful time here in AR with mom. Today we went to get mass-ages (hope that doesn’t get cued) which were wonderful. We spent the evening watching “The Hundred Foot Journey” and episodes of “Endeavor” which she hadn’t seen. Tomorrow is hair cuts for both of us, maybe some baking. I will be sad to leave as the weather is perfect down here right now.

GPK - I bought Oni. I hadn’t spent any candies at all until I got over 10K; then I bought the broom tree, the pumpkin campfire, the bone path, and the Oni dragon. Really should have saved the candies I spent getting the ped because I put in in the coop with another Oni and got two back-to-back peds (but not the twins)

I haven’t watched football all week so thanks for the updates on the games. Mom is indifferent to it, and to be honest we’ve been so busy down here doing other things it hasn’t really crossed my mind.

DRM - I sent you a friend request from my niece, Juliana Moser. She is new to DV and has NO FRIENDS at all. I’ve been working on her Kindle Fire trying to get us connected; got her parent’s permission to establish a FB account so she can start getting some friends for gifting. Poor thing - she’s been playing for about a year now with just Nogard! Only if you wish - and that goes for the rest of you, too! Thanks in advance.

I’m pooped tonight and tomorrow I’m taking care of my sister’s cats so I’m up relatively early to do that, then hair cut appointment at 1000. I’m going to hit the games real quick then go to bed!

Take care all - hope you’re having a great time with the event!

Thank you. I was about to email you and ask if you knew her. Friend request accepted. Welcome to DV, Juliana!

I forwarded an email from the Flutter/Splash people. Flutter event going on now and Splash event starting the 23rd.

Because you bought an Oni & made it available to us, I bought a Spirit and I've made it available to you...and the rest of my friends...just thought I would help share some of the load...

DG please let Juliana know to sign out of Facebook, close Facebook, close DV, then restart her tablet. Log in to Facebook and then to DV to see her new friends added to Facebook. I've added her and done all the above but she's still not showing up. She may also need to link her game to Facebook. She can do that under the social tab by tapping the Facebook login button.

Successfully bred Dracabra in coop with my Fire and Bleedblues Dracabra, in one of my secondary parks. Yay!

I noticed something very interesting, if the app has been updated correctly. Breeding Nosferatu with Wyrmwood has a possibility of getting 11 out of 18 event dragons, including 2 of the brand new dragons, Oni and Spirit. The sandbox confirms the 9 returning dragons:

bone
garden
spectre
trick
nosferatu
ortreat
thicket
ghost
decay

Great info! Does that apply to those 4 new Dragons, Oni, Dracula, Gargoyle & Spirit?

What is the feminine case of Wizard? Wizardess? Wizardette? Whatever, you're it!

Thank you!

Nosferatu x Wyrmwood: Oni , Spirit
Mud x Lycan: Gargoyle, Spirit
Fire x Dracabra: Dracabra ( worked for me in secondary park)
Cold x Spirit: Spirit
Cold x Oni: Oni

These are the combos I'm trying.

So, in breeding hints, it is indeed Fire x Dracabra and Cold x Spirit. Both were Eldrf, and were bred in the Co-Op.

I’ve been working on twins, and working with other Valers as well... I have twins of Trick, Ortreat, Spirit, Oni, Bone, Bog, Lycan, Nosferatu, Decay and Garden that I’ve bred this event!

In addition, I splurged on a Spooky Egg of Mystery... and guess what I got??? Gargoyle!! So now I have all 4!

In terms of the Rift, I hear ya guys! I’ve been trying forever to get Ghast, Viridian, and Zaffer! They’re my last three - well, I guess I have 4 now with Frostfluff.

Catch you guys later! Good luck on the event!

If anyone knows any successful combos for Zaffer, Viridian and Ghast, do tell!

And not like those ones they have in the breeding cave, where it’s just the rift trait and two elements; I mean a tried and true pair of actual dragons.

I’ve been trying over and over with a Shadow (fire trait) and a light rift/dark rift (I’m switching between the two) for Ghast because the breeding hints say “Light + Dark + Fire Trait” but all I’m getting is...

Wait for it...

Primary Dark and Light Drahons! Not even a hybrid, not even the rift versions! Sigh...

No idea on the rift combos. Might try the DV Wiki page to see if anyone has posted a successful combo there.

Is anybody else having an extremely hard time stay logged in to Dragonvale? The game is kicking me out after about 60 seconds. I have to load the game 10 to 15 times just to collect the coins and set the breeds. It started a couple days ago.

Current Goal: All level 20 dragons
Progress: 380/381 dragons, Level 95
Recent Success: Air Rift

No problems here. Have you tried the normal fixes: closing other apps, restarting your device, turning off island themes, collecting twins and gifts ? May also need to free up some storage space: delete apps you no longer need or use, move pictures etc to a memory card or other storage media. Another thing to try is clearing browser history . If none of these help send BFS a trouble ticket. Hope it gets sorted.

Hello everyone and thank you for the bday wishes. I’ve been celebrating a little at a time for a week. My daughter in Austin one weekend then with my son here last weekend and next weekend in Dallas w my stepdaughter. Not bad. My son gave me a book called 342 years of history. It’s all about my dads family for the last 300 years per all that he could find in his research. It’s really neat and was a lot of work I’m sure. Lots of pics of census records, land records, wills, marriage records. Things like that whcih help follow the history. It’s very special. It ends with me and my kids and their kids.
I don’t like the rift at all. I’m doing like GPK. Collecting islands. I try to breed up to the 1000 et each day just to try for the new ones but not much luck. Just more to keep up w. I am looking for a new game as this was my primary. Now that I’m at 100 and can’t possibly ever reach the fire breathing dragon it’s sad. I was sooo close. Only needed a few more dragons when they started the rift. I was doing farmdale but that got old too. I do play Ramsey Dash too but I refuse to spend too much so my times are limited to the amount of food I have. Probably good as it makes me stop. I tried the one where you clean up the mansion grounds but I see where it’s going and not liking that you have to earn stars to fed the dog and those stars are not easy after awhile. Thus they want you to buy boosters. Ugh. Ok well off for me. I’m sorry I’m not posting more but work and family have been keeping me busy. At night I play my games a bit, watch a little tv, and go to bed. Have a nice weekend everyone. I’m going to go try that cold and spirit combo.

What an amazing and special gift! I hope you don't give up on DV. They are always introducing new dragons. I'm not into the rift either. I only breed 2 per day per park in order to save up the E$. If you want another fun dragon game I highly recommend Merge Dragons. Careful tho, it's pretty addictive. ;-)

Did y'all see the new island they snuck in? Yep, #21 available at game level 100 for a cool $16,000,000,000! Weee!

Yep. That's all I do in the Rift...collect E$. The last Dragon I bred in the Rift wasn't even a Rift!

No luck with any of the new, Event Dragons...

I HAVE found another game, Golf Clash. It's a lot of fun, but it's competitive and you have to have good reflexes. It really simulates a round of golf (which I can't play anymore because of the pain I get in my elbows & shoulders). The thing I liked about DV was that it WASN'T competitive.

Yeah, sadly OSU doesn’t play this weekend which usually doesn’t work out well for us the next game. I wonder if it’s tough for them to take a break once they are in a groove? Did you play football? I think you said you played baseball, right? Anyway, win or lose I’ll always be a Buckeyes fan! Bet your PSU Nittany’s will do well against ‘that team up North’. I’ll be cheering for them to win tonight but not next weekend!

I agree with your sentiment about liking DV because it wasn’t competitive.

Grandpa Kenny's picture

When you grow up in a small, rural town in the west, you played every sport :-). I played FB, Baseball & Wrestling...I was best at Baseball.

Yeah, if they are in a good groove, that week off could break their momentum...

Greetings!!! Read the last few posts and here’s one from me that may help...Got Ghast today (quite unexpectedly) with Light and Shadow dragons - yay!

DRM - thanks so much for all the info on the new dragons - alas, I’m packing to leave back to NE tonight and will not have time to try any of them. :(

GPK - I will try one of DRM’s combos when I get back with your Spirit - thanks so much for putting him up.

FP - hello my dear!

OK - here’s the deal. Heading out on a long road trip tomorrow so I probably won’t be gifting tomorrow at all, and if I do it will be late if at all - so apologies up front. Do me a fave? Keep me in your prayers for a safe journey back home.

Night-night all - KKDB!!!

DG - yes, by all means have a safe trip...are you gonna drive the whole thing in one shot?

FP - PSU looked pretty good tonight. They've really upgraded that stadium since I was last there (back in the 80s). A kid I co-ached in Pop Warner played for PS (and later the Patriots)...he gave us tickets every now and then.

Yay! I got the Ghast dragon totally by accident. Used alpenglow and nightshade awhile the alignment is in light. Maybe the dragon gods were feeling sorry for me as I’ve tried so many times to get any of the new rifts.
