Mirthful Market

The Mirthful Market can be found on the event island and contains all the prizes that can be earned in the event. Prizes are divided into several collections and collecting more unique prizes will unlock more prize collections. 

 

Exchanging Iceberries for Prizes

  • Visit the Mirthful Market 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.
  • Collect the required number of unique prizes to unlock higher tiers 

 

Unlocking Higher Prize Collections

Collecting more unique prizes will unlock the higher tiers. The number of unique prizes required to unlock each tier is visible within the Mirthful Market. If you already own an item from one of the prize collections it will count towards unlocking higher tiers. Please note that multiples of the same item do not count towards unlocking higher tiers.

 


Donating Dragons

Sandakloz needs more dragon power to help deliver gifts to everyone's parks. Your donations will help him make sure all the Glacial Gifteries are stocked to the brim! Some requests will ask for a specific dragon, and others will simply require any dragon that possesses the requested element. 

Please note: Dragons that you donate to the Dragon Boat will not be returned, and you can only donate newly-hatched dragons.

To fill a donation:

  1. Tap on the Dragon Boat or the Mirthful Market
  2. Tap the "Donation" icon at the bottom of the screen
  3. Tap a space to view the request and reward for completing that space
  4. Breed the required dragon, then tap the "Donate" icon after hatching the new dragon
  5. If you aren't able to breed a requested dragon, you can use Gems to fill the request instead

You will earn Iceberries for each donation request you fill. Completing a line of requests will provide even more Iceberries, and filling the entire donation request will earn you the most Iceberries. You can complete up to 5 donation cards per day. 

 

 

Evolving Dragons

Certain new dragons can only be obtained by transforming existing dragons in your park. To summon one of these new dragons, you'll need to obtain all 10 unique decorations required for the desired dragon.

More information on how to summon the new event dragons can be found in their breeding hints. If you have the necessary base dragon as indicated in the breeding hint, and have collected all 10 of the required decorations, you can then summon the new dragon to your park. 

Breeding hints can be accessed by tapping on any of the breeding areas in the game, then tapping on the "Breeding Hints" icon. 

 

Obtaining Decorations

The decorations needed to summon new dragons can be acquired from the Toy Chests found within the Mirthful Market. Chests purchased in the Market are guaranteed to contain a decoration you don't already own. 

You can also obtain decorations from the Golden Chests found in Mini Games. A Golden Chest won in a mini-game will contain 3 decorations, but please note that these are not guaranteed to be decorations you don't already own, and you may receive duplicates.

 

Evolving a Dragon

evolve1.jpg     evolve2.jpg

If you've collected all 10 colors of the required decorations, and have the necessary base dragon in your park, you can evolve that dragon using the steps below. The base dragon you need can be found in the in-game breeding hints.

Breeding hints can be accessed by tapping on any of the breeding areas in the game, then tapping on the "Breeding Hints" icon. 

  1. Make sure you've collected all 10 colors of the required decorations
  2. Locate the dragon you wish to evolve and tap on it
  3. Tap the "Evolve" icon at the bottom of the dragon's info card
  4. In the pop up menu, tap to select the type of dragon you wish to evolve to, then tap the confirm button
  5. Tap the "Evolve" button to transform your dragon. Please note that evolving a dragon will cost 1000 Iceberries

It is important to note that when you transform one of your dragons it will evolve into a new dragon, and the original dragon will no longer be available in your park. Please keep this in mind if you only have one of the dragon you wish to evolve. 

 

 

Activities & Games

Fort of Frivolity

wheel.jpg     chest1.jpg

The Fort of Frivolity contains 3 different mini-games. You'll get 5 free plays in the Fort of Frivolity every 12 hours, up to a maximum of 10 plays per day. Please note that these plays are shared between all games.

 

Wheel of Chance - Give the wheel a spin and be rewarded with the number of Iceberries the needle lands on. 

Dragon Drop - A game of chance, Pachinko style! Tap to drop the coin and win Iceberries! 

Magic Tap - Test your reflexes and earn Iceberries with Magic Tap! You'll have 10 seconds to tap as many Iceberries as you can. Watch out for bombs or else it's game over!

Name That Dragon - Recognize that shadowy figure? Guess the dragon correctly to win Iceberries!

Name That Egg - Show off your DragonVale knowledge when you take this multiple choice challenge. Win Iceberries when you guess correctly!

 

Buying More Plays

After you use your last available play at the Fort of Frivolity you will have the option to purchase an additional play for 5 Gems. Purchasing an additional play is entirely optional and you will still receive your 5 free plays every 12 hours as usual.

 

Golden Chests

golden-chest.png

Sometimes mini-games contain a special Golden Chest that will award 3 decorations. A Golden Chest can contain any of the available decorations, but these may be duplicates and are not guaranteed to be a decoration you don't already own.

You'll always have a small chance to find a Golden Chest when playing games, but buying an additional play gives you a 100% chance of finding a Golden Chest on your next turn. Please note that this only guarantees that the chest will appear, and not that you will win the chest.

   

Arctic Amphitheater

Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Iceberries!

amphitheater.png

  • Challenges will last 4 hours each
  • You may complete up to 4 challenges per day
  • Choose the best dragons for the challenge by matching the dragons' elements to the elements of the current challenge 

 

Sandakloz and Hidden Presents

Each day Sandakloz will deliver presents and hide them around your park. He will scatter 4 presents each day and you will know when presents or Sandakloz are in your park when you see snow around the Visitors icon. You'll also have a small chance of receiving a decoration from Sandakloz or hidden presents, so be sure to look for them each day!

  

 

Glacial Giftery

The Glacial Giftery rewards you for each day you play during the event. Earn free Iceberries and other great prizes!   

  • Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises!
  • If you miss a day, don’t worry, you can spend a few gems to catch up. You cannot collect a day’s reward in advance.
  • You only have to login to DragonVale each day to be eligible for the reward. If you login, but forget to visit the Fortuitous Forecastle, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.

 

 

Community Rewards

community-icon.png

During the Winter Saga, all Iceberries you collect in your park count towards earning prizes for everyone in the DragonVale community. You can see how many Iceberries you've earned for the community at any time by tapping the Mirthful Market, then tapping the "Progress" icon at the bottom of the screen. The progress bar there represents the community progress from all DragonVale players.

Once the community has earned enough Iceberries, 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. 

  

 


Frequently Asked Questions 

Why hasn’t the event begun in my park yet?

Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on December 12th, 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 4.12.0 or 4.12.1.

 

What is the daily limit of Iceberries?

You will eventually reach a cap if you manage to collect 10,000 Iceberries in a single day. 

 

What Happens to my dragons after I donate them?

Dragons donated to Sandakloz will accompany him aboard his boat. Dragons that you donate will not be returned to your park. 

 

Can I donate an existing dragon in my park?

Only newly-hatched dragons can be donated to the Dragon Boat.

 

Why did I receive a decoration I already own?

Golden Chests won in mini-games may contain duplicates. However, the Toy Chests purchased in the Mirthful Market are guaranteed to contain a decoration that you do not already own. 

 

What happens to my original dragon after I evolve it into one of the new dragons?

When you transform one of your dragons it will evolve into an entirely new dragon, and the original dragon will be gone from your park forever. Please keep this in mind if you only have one of the dragon you wish to evolve. 

 

How many times can I evolve a dragon?

A single dragon can only be transformed once, however, if you've collected all 10 of the required decorations, and have multiples of the necessary base dragon, you can evolve more than one of them if you wish.

 

Can evolution dragons be bred?

Dragons that can be obtained via evolution can only be bred if both parent dragons are the target dragon. For example, Sugarplum + Sugarplum has a chance of producing another Sugarplum Dragon, but Sugarplum + another dragon does not.  

 

Can I evolve one of the new dragons after the event ends?

As long as you have collected all 10 required decorations, and have the necessary base dragon, you can evolve that dragon at any time. Please note that after the event ends the evolution will cost Gems rather than Iceberries.

 

How many games can I play each day?

You'll get 5 free plays in the Fort of Frivolity every 12 hours. Please note that these plays are shared between all games.  

 

When does the Winter Saga end?

The event runs through January 20th, 2019, and concludes on January 21st at 11am Mountain Time. It will not be possible to earn additional Iceberries after this time, but the Mirthful Market will remain open for two additional days so you can turn in any leftover Iceberries you may have.

 

When does the Mirthful Market close?

The Mirthful Market will close at 11am Mountain Time on January 23rd and event prizes will no longer be available after this time. 

  

What happens to my leftover Iceberries at the end of the event?

After the Mirthful Market closes on January 23rd, we'll turn any leftover Iceberries into DragonCash at the rate of 1,000 DragonCash per 1 Iceberry.

 

When is my last chance to purchase Iceberries if I need a few more?

To prevent any potential issues with purchases being made as the prize market is closing, Iceberry purchasing will be turned off at 8am on January 23rd, 3 hours prior to the closing of the Mirthful Market.
