Third time starting from scratch

Starting Dragonvale again. Lost everything twice. (Really should write down my park ID number this time). But hey, this is a really good game. It takes only a couple minutes to collect coins, hatch eggs, etc.... In the last month, I've downloaded so many crappy games that just waste my time, anyway. The only part I really dread doing over is racing for the Kairos pieces. I'm so sick of racing.
Anyway, this time, I won't be in such a hurry since I completed most of my goals the last time. I had 10 perfectly organized islands. This time, I'm just going for the gold shrines, which I never completed in the first two parks I built.

One thing I learned about breeding is that I shouldn't target the crystal dragon, since I will probably breed a hundred of them without wanting to.

Good luck to you! Everyone gave you great ideas. Backflip is always helpful if something bad occurs. I've had my fill of screw-ups, too in the past 3 yrs. i'm glad you're staying with us.

Giggy52

Bru, you aren't connected to Gamecenter or Facebook? You might consider doing that. Making just a game account?

A tip on the park ID: if you click on e-mail support under the options tab it will compose an e-mail with your park ID to Backflip support. But you can change the e-mailadress to your own and save yourself a lot of typing :)

I know what you mean about the crystal dragon. I got my peridot on the last day...after a month of crystal dragons. I was so glad it was out of the picture with sapphire. Then they released cotton and leathery...

And if you need a hand in building up your park make sure to check the Gem Fairies thread.

brunansky's picture

I dont know what gamecenter is. might have to check it out.
Ok my official restart day was Sept 14. I've already got 32 fire dragons earning 120,000 coins every couple of hours on eight large fire habitats. That is the quickest way to earn cash at this stage of the game. Colusiem is built. Gem production is underway. Second island summoned. Got 5 primaries and 4 hybrids. 9 different types of dragons. Not bad for day #4.

Sorry that you have to start all over. Should really check out GameCenter, it's pretty handy :)! Good luck on your collecting again, I know I feel like I'm starting all over after being gone for like six months! So many new dragons!!

GC ID WikidThoughts
Will laugh, love and just live like today is my last.

I made a game account for facebook too. Just for the extra gem you can get for every goal you complete. Looking back that wasn't necessary, because you can cancel the message before it is posted and still get the gem. Same goes for the twitter message, so you can get 2 extra gems for free for every goal :) All without leaving the closet ;)

And by connecting to friends through GameCenter or facebook you can trade gems, which has given my park a steady gemflow. Especially after I got the gem tree.

Good luck with your new park!

I was at level 55 and had almost all the dragons minus a few rare ones and I lost my park when my tablet had issues. I am in process of rebuilding too and found that connecting your park to Facebook does not mean the game will post to your timeline. You can prevent posts if you want.

The dragons I really miss are the ones that can't be bred (Dawn and Dusk and Ovalith).

Good luck with your rebuild.

Actually started collecting egg pedestals out of boredom. 22/208 pedestals. Both breeding centers are upgraded, so now all gems are going to purchase giant habitats. 7 giant habitats so far.
BEB results: Some interesting dragons I got were, Double Rainbow, Sun, Lunar Eclipse, Terradiem, Bloom, Panlong, Light Rift, Apocalypse, Sapphire, Leap Year, Blue Moon and some Epics I already had.
5/8 Silver shrines.

I'm glad you find my monthly updates interesting. My old park crashed shortly after 6 months in, so it will be interesting to see where I'm at after two more months. Last time I focused on getting ten islands and maxing out on levels by lots of racing. This time I focused on upgrading the breeding centers and feeding dragons faster. I miss my tenth island and my level 55

I admire your perseverance. I am afraid that if my game crashed at this point, I would give it up. It is my little unhealthy obsession and I suppose that would be like quitting cold turkey!

can you still collect new dragons at level 60

You can still do everything once you reach level 60. Only difference is you don't get experience points for anything you do :( at least until they add more levels hehe. Which everyone is hoping is soon :)

There's still a lot of common dragons I haven't even got yet, like Blizzard. I bet I can get another 20 in the next month. Seed is incubating.

Vineskm's picture

Welcome back to almost where you were!

brunansky's picture

OK. I estimated that I have now spent an equal amount of days in rebuilding as I spent building my last park which crashed last August. I have a good idea of what my old park had so let's begin the comparison!

KEEP IN MIND THIS WAS A SOLO GAME, NO GEM SHARING OR GIFTING. I EARNED ALL MY GEMS THE HARD WAY!!

Dragon count:
Old Park: 143/192 ---- 74% completion
New Park: 163/216 ---- 75% completion (WIN!!)

Level:
Old Park: Level 55 MAX
New Park: Level 57 (WIN!!) Although I could have pushed it and got to level 65, but what's the point?

Islands:
Old Park: 10 Islands
New Park: 9 Islands (But I've spent over a billion coins feeding dragons to level 15, so WIN!!)

Dragon Levels:
Old Park: Unique dragons were all level 14, very few were above level 14.
New Park: Unique dragons are all level 15, many are already level 16. (WIN!!!)

Shrines:
Old Park: 8/8 Silver, 0/8 Gold
New Park: ALL GOLD!!! (WIN!!!)

Breeding caves and nursery:
Old Park: Had EBI, neither locale was upgraded, 3 nursery nests
New Park: Both EBI and EBC fully upgraded, 4 nursery nests (WIN!!!)

Giant Habitats:
Old Park: Unknown, but I estimate having at least 30 giant habitats (WIN!!)
New Park: 19 Giant habitats, used gems for upgrading Breeding centers and upgrading shrines

Organization?:
Old Park: Neat, well maintained islands, plenty of paths and decorations (WIN!!!!)
New Park: Total train-wreck, habitats clumped together like a Detroit landfill. Wizards refuse to shower, dragon poop everywhere.

Summation:
Old Park: I was surprised at how well I did in my old park looking back
New Park: It was a struggle to get my total dragon completion rate above my old park, but I made it in the last few days.
Breeding 10 Topaz dragons in November definitely gave me an edge in gem production, and was one of the reasons I was quickly able to upgrade my breeding centers.

Some random thoughts:
I have played Dragonvale 3 times: The first two times a Silver dragon was my first Epic, as of tonight I do not have a Silver dragon in my new park (although I think I have one incubating right now)

I have no Snowy Olympus dragons in my new park.

In my first two parks, I never got an Ironwood or a Moon dragon, in my new park, last month I got an Ironwood, followed by back to back Moon dragons.

Dragons I have never had: Day Dream, Nightmare, Arbor, Sprout, Kite, Bearded, Century, Leathery, Sunstruck, Berry, Gourd, Aurora, Monolith1-4, Snowflake 2-4, Emerald, Opal, Victory, Dark Rift, Jet, Coal

According to my last update, I gained 14 Epic dragons in the last 31 days!!! But I guess Epics are about all I have left to collect, so it makes sense. So I spent some money to get the relic...... it's OK. It's a noticeable boost. It's nice to wake up to the little treasure chest on all my Epic habitats. I need to get an accurate count of how many dragoncoins my park earns a day. I'm guessing that I'm making over 50,000,000/day if I log in enough. And I've avoided the Motley!!! (so far)
After 6 straight months of gaining at least 20 new unique dragons, I only netted 15 new dragons this past month. But that's to be expected since it's Epic hunting time.

Eight new dragons gained in the last month. Mostly thanks to the Faire. All but 16 dragons are at level 17. I'm trying to breed duplicate Epics to generate food money. Ragnaroks have been my target. Up to 10 Ragnaroks. I try to keep one breeding location with a Ragnarok/Apocalypse breeding combo. I have gotten a lot of treasure dragons, Ragnarok and Apocalypse dragons with this combo. Even though it says Apocalypse is limited, I've gotten a few out of season, so I don't believe it's really limited like it says it is. If I continue at this current feeding pace, I estimate having all level 18 dragons by January 1. I like the Faire, but the pace at which new dragons are released is too fast for me.

Hey that's awesome, and it's nice to see your update! I know you said at first you were targeting the gold shrines...how did you do with that? I ended up using gems to upgrade some of mine because the food reward was so good, but I waited till I was pretty close, so as not use up tons of gems. And I agree they're releasing new dragons a little bit too quickly.

Progress after one year and five months of building-

246/268 Total
93/110 Epic
113/113 Elemental
65/72S pecial
179/267 Pedestals
22 dragons left to hatch

13 islands, all level 18 dragons, level 72. The game is starting to drag, but I keep on going. Lucky if I log on twice a day to collect coins, set breeds, etc.... Now that the dragons I need are getting scarce, I can keep the breeding locals popping out pedestals I need. Stopped feeding dragons for now, and will save coins until the Thanksgiving event to get the max conversion rate. I have 4 billion coins right now.

Going to be a long boring summer. My slow connection makes this game a real chore.

At least you have some specific goals to work toward. I am topped out with everything, so the only challenges now are newly released dragons and events. That's ok by me though as I don't have internet at home at all and have to play either at work (sssshhhhh!) or other wifi availabilities. Yeah, I'm the one sitting in the Walmart parking lot scavaging free wifi! Lol!

I have sat outside of Lowes!! I have had a new connection/service at this house and I stepped back ten years! :) Nothing to do with my slow connection and sometimes nonexistent service but I have had a long dry spell using the co-op breeding. I mean LONG! :)

Good to see you! I know all the good spots, but didn't know about Lowe's! What are you missing that I might be able to help with? I haven't begged the wizarding geniuses for their magic in quite awhile!

Araheera's picture

I have been trying for Lace and Ornamental with no luck. Going to change the combo on the Lace as soon as the present breeding is done. Hope to get at least one of either before the next event!

Sorry for the delay in responding. We have been snowbound for the past two days, and me without any internet! I am sending wizarding magic your way! Come on DV, Araheera needs a Lace and (not or) an Ornamental! XOXO

I am putting up my Lace to help!

Edit: Oh, haha, you just replied today!

Araheera's picture

I have been trying sooo long for Lace and Ornamental and appreciate your wizarding but sadly it is not to be and now the new event starting tomorrow. UGH. The cooperative breeding is not very cooperative!! So breeding has not been exciting. Hoping for a rewarding event, you know where you earn or breed all the dragons. Ha ha. Best of luck.

Hello Kathy. I've been trying to add you as friend but Game Center doesn't seem to be playing nice. You're close to being a target in the Gem Circle and I want to be able to send your gems.
Thank you:-)

I am so sorry! I had 19 FR's that I was unaware of. I must have changed some of my notification settings or something. I have accepted all 19!

Thank you Kathy, your vale is awesome. Game Center is weird. Sometimes I get a notification a FR was accepted but most just show up in my friends list. It makes things interesting for sure. Thank you again, have a great day :-)

Progress after (almost) one year and eight months of building-

260/285 Total
103/123 Epic
116/116 Elemental
67/74 Special
211/284 Pedestals
25 dragons left to hatch

13 islands, all level 18 dragons, level 75. The game continues to drag. Again, they release dragons faster than I can breed them. Now I'm up to 25 dragons needed. I'm not feeding dragons until Thanksgiving, so I just collect coins. I have 12 billion coins saved up right now. I just completed my monolith collection, (big whoop). Mainly focused on pedestals right now. I've given up on galaxy dragons since I don't co-op breed. Might quit the game once I get all the dragons to level 20 and 21.

Update after building for two years.

286/311 Total
122/135 Epic
119/123 Elemental
73/81 Special
256/309 Pedestals
25 dragons left to hatch

Here's where I am after two years of building. Still lacking 25 dragons, mostly because I don't co-op breed. Maybe some day I'll get game center, or add valers to Facebook, but not for now. Still building cash for the anticipated Thanksgiving event. I have 23 billion coins waiting to convert to food. Still have most elemental dragons stuck at level 18 and almost all epics are raised up to level 17. I did get one elder dragon finally. So I guess this is a game I'll just play for life because it never ends.

Bru, I totally understand why you don't want DragonVale posts all over your wall, but there is a very easy way around this. Whenever I post to Facebook to get the bonus gems, I simply change the sharing from "Friends" to "Only Me". That way I get the bonus gems and nobody, but me, sees it. I'm also working on building another category for my friend's list for my DragonVale friends. When I finish this, I can change my posting from "Only Me" to "DragonVale Friends" and then only my DragonVale friends will be able to see my DragonVale posts.

Another tip: When posting to Twitter for the bonus gem, simply hit the "back" key after the Twitter page opens. You will get the gem without actually posting it.

I do hope you will consider trying this. Then you will be able to recover your game if it crashes again (mine has several times and I always got it back) and you will be able to participate in the coop breeding, gem and food exchange, etc.

I have to say that I am extremely impressed with your perseverance after losing your game and the speed in which you rebuilt your park. You're much better at this than I am! LOL!! Good luck to you and happy breeding!! :D

Please send a PM in FB if you would like to add me as a DV friend so I know who you are. Thank you!

Thanks Snoopy!
I do have to save to Facebook for recovery. I'm not in a hurry for co op breeding. Just can't get galaxy dragons. But I have 3 of them. Noggard puts out a fire dragon for co op. I can use co op to get my elemental dragons and eggs. Still need conch and molten.

249/265 Decorations
Only missing Singularity
Missing 4 islands plus Gargantuan
10 Platinum shrines
Over 100 level 20 dragons
Kairos power 10

September 14 will complete my third year on this park. And I'm happy to announce that it's starting to look like endgame soon. I'm closing in on my goals for what I consider 'game completion'. Here's what I consider a completed game of Dragonvale:
All dragons
All pedestals
All decorations
All platinum shrines
All unique dragons at level 20
All islands, including event islands
Max park level
Kairos upgraded to max level

Notice I didn't include twin dragons or twin pedestals to my list. I never liked the twin/co-op angle to this game.

So how close am I? Singularity has been extremely hard to get. I'm not stressing about it, because there is a good chance I could get it through a gift egg. If not I can get it with a wish. I've been using wishes on the expensive islands. Now that I'm not using gems to speed up breeding times I have a stock pile of 700 gems to spend on pedestals and decorations at BEB. I have 28 billion (and growing) coins to convert to food during the Om of Noms event this Thanksgiving. So I'm hoping to have all level 20 dragons by year's end.

So I'm predicting by 2018 I will only be lacking a few islands and a fully maxed out Kairos.
