Join DragonVale for the Great Dragon Faire 2018! Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on June 7th, 2018. If you’re above level 11 and the event hasn’t started for you, you may be playing on an older version of DragonVale. Please update to the most recent version through your device's app store. The correct version for the event is 4.6.2.
During this event Tickets can be earned in a variety of ways. Tickets can then be exchanged for fabulous prizes at the Prize Tent!
Ways to Earn Tickets:
- Collecting from habitats
- Breeding dragons
- Incubating dragons
- Hatching dragons
- Selling newly-hatched dragons
- Playing games in the Games Tent
- Competing in challenges at the Challenge Arena
- Finding and tapping flag-bearing visitors in your park
Collecting Tickets After You've Reached the Daily Cap
It is important to note that you can continue to contribute Tickets towards the community rewards after you've reached your daily cap. These additional Tickets are not added to your personal total, but will be added to your community contribution. Once the community collects enough Tickets you'll all be given a prize!
Tickets can also be purchased through the Market. Purchased Tickets do not count against your daily collection limit.
The Prize Tent
The Prize Tent can be found on the event island and contains all the prizes that can be earned in the event. Prizes are divided into several tiers, and new prize collections will unlock as the event progresses.
Exchanging Tickets for Prizes
- Visit the Prize Tent and tap the Prizes icon
- View available prizes by tapping each of the different collections
- A counter on each prize will show you how many of that item you currently own. Please note that dragons that have not yet been hatched will not be counted.
- New collections will unlock as the event progresses
New Prize Collections
As the event progresses, new prize collections will become available. When a new prize collection opens, the previous collection will expire and it will no longer be possible to purchase prizes from that collection.
Activities & Games
The Games Tent contains two different mini games - Wheel of Chance and Dragon Drop. You'll get 5 free plays in The Games Tent every 4 hours, up to a maximum of 30 plays per day. Please note that these plays are shared between both games.
Wheel of Chance - Give the wheel a spin and be rewarded with the number of Tickets or Gems the needle lands on.
Dragon Drop - A game of chance, Pachinko style! Tap to drop the coin and win Tickets or Gems!
Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the Games Tent you will have the option to purchase an additional play for 5 Gems. Purchasing additional plays is entirely optional and you will still receive your 5 free plays every 4 hours as usual.
Please note: If you have already reached your Ticket limit for the day, buying more plays will not allow you to win more Tickets for your personal total. Any Tickets won after reaching the daily limit will be applied to your community contribution only.
Sometimes Dragon Drop and the Wheel of Chance contain a special Golden Chest. This Golden Chest can contain many fabulous prizes, including dragon eggs!
You'll always have a small chance to find a Golden Chest when playing games, but buying another play gives you an even higher chance to find a Golden Chest. Each time you buy another play your chance increases - all the way up to a guaranteed chance to find a chest in the game you're playing.
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Tickets!
- Challenges will last two hours each
- You may complete up to five challenges per day
- Choose the best dragons for the challenge by matching your dragon's elements to the elements of the current challenge
- Tickets collected from the Challenge Arena after your daily limit has been reached will not be added to your personal total, but will be counted towards the community rewards.
Each day there will be flag-bearing visitors in your park and finding them will award Tickets. You will know there are visitors to find when you see the orange border around your visitors icon.
During the Great Dragon Faire, all Tickets you collect count towards earning prizes for everyone in the DragonVale community. You can see how many Tickets you've earned for the community at any time by tapping the Prize Tent, then tapping the "Progress" icon at the bottom of the screen.
The progress bar there represents the actual contributions from all DragonVale players. Once the community has earned enough Tickets, a reward will be given to everyone who contributed. After a reward is given the progress bar will reset and start counting towards the next reward.
It is important to note that you can continue to contribute Tickets towards the community reward after you've reached your daily cap. These additional Tickets are not added to your personal total, but will be added to your community contribution.
