Purchasing Flowers

Runic Breeding Caves

vid_cave.png

Complete breeds in the new Runic Breeding Caves! The resulting egg from each breed in a Runic Breeding Cave will be exchanged for Flowers.

Longer breed times will award more Flowers than shorter times, and breeding new dragon types will provide an extra bonus of Flowers. All breeds in Runic Breeding Caves are reduced in time and can be sped up with Gems. Please note that the cost to speed up a breed will increase with each use.  

All the dragons you breed in Runic Breeding Caves will be logged in the Egg History, and you can choose ONE of these dragons to keep for each cave that you have activated. You can access your Egg History at any time by tapping on a Runic Breeding Cave, then tapping the "Egg History" icon at the bottom of the screen.

 

Additional Runic Breeding Caves

Every player will have one Runic Breeding Cave to start with and will be given a bonus Runestone to activate a second cave during the tutorial. This bonus cave will be available to use for a period of one week.

On double Flower days, players will be given an additional cave to breed in. On Triple Flower days, each player will have two additional Runic Breeding Caves available to use. Each cave will generate Flowers, and you can claim 1 free egg from each Runic Breeding Cave that was activated in your park.

You can also purchase Runestones in the Market that will allow you to activate more Runic Breeding Caves. These caves will last for a period of one week from the time of activation. It is important to note that reactivating the same cave will not allow you to select more than one egg to keep from that cave. 

 

Choosing a Free Dragon from your Runic Breeding Caves

You can select the eggs you want to keep at any point during the event, but please choose carefully as this choice is final and you will not be able to change your selection. You can choose 1 egg to keep from each Runic Breeding Cave that was activated in your park.

Elemental Playlist

elements.png

Each day a set of elements is chosen that influences the following aspects of the event:

  • Habitat Collection: Habitats that match at least one of the daily elements will have a greater chance of awarding Flowers.
  • Breed Times: Any dragon whose habitat types match at least one of the daily elements will have reduced breeding and incubating times. This applies to normal breeding areas, as well as Runic Breeding Caves. Primary dragons are not affected. 
  • Dragon Dance Floor: Each day the epic element required in dragon dance challenges will change to match the chosen daily element. Choose dragons that match this element to earn the maximum amount of Flowers.  
  • Banner-Bearing Visitors: The color of the banner-bearing visitors in your park will change to match the selected daily elements. 

The first time you log in after the daily reset you will receive a message displaying the elemental playlist for that day. If you miss this notification you can view the elemental playlist at any time by tapping the info button in the event Help menu or News menu.

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.

 

Purchasing New Dragons

Before you can purchase one of the new event dragons you must first collect certain items. The items you need to collect can be found by tapping a locked dragon in the Beachside Bungalow. Once you have collected the required items the dragon will unlock for you to purchase. 

 

 

Spellforms

In addition to having separate day and night forms, new dragons in this event can also be enhanced with Spellforms for an even wilder appearance! Dragons that can be enhanced with Spellforms are indicated by a mask icon in the lower right corner of their info card, and can be found in the "Enhanced" section of the Dragonarium.

 

Obtaining Spellform Pieces

Spellforms for the new event dragons can be purchased with Flowers in the Beachside Bungalow.

 

The Altar of Alteration

You can keep track of your Spellform collection with the Altar of Alteration. If you do not already have this building from the previous event, it will automatically be placed in your gifts menu for you. Once you collect this building from your gifts and place it in your park you can use it to view all the Spellforms you've acquired. This is also where you can apply Spellforms to your dragons. 

 

Applying a Spellform     

Once you've acquired a Spellform for one of the new dragons, you can enhance that dragon using the steps below:

  1. Locate the dragon you wish to enhance. A dragon must be at least level 4 to have a Spellform applied.
  2. Tap the mask icon in the lower right corner of the dragon's info card
  3. Tap the Spellform piece(s) you wish to apply to the dragon. 
  4. Spellforms can be changed at any time by returning to the Altar of Alteration, or by tapping the mask icon in the lower right corner of a dragon's info card

 


Activities & Games

Aquatic Arcade

The Aquatic Arcade contains 2 different mini-games - Wheel of Chance and Dragon Drop. You'll get 5 free plays in the Aquatic Arcade every 12 hours. 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 Flowers the needle lands on.

 Buying More Plays

After you use your last available play at the Aquatic Arcade 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

Sometimes mini-games contain a Golden Chest that will provide special rewards. 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 be able to win the chest.

 

Dragon Dance Floor

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

Why am I not receiving Flowers when I collect from my habitats?

If you are no longer earning any Flowers when you collect from habitats that would indicate that you have reached your habitat limit for the day. It is also important to note that habitats that match at least one of the elements in the elemental playlist will have a higher chance of rewarding Flowers than those that don't. 

 

What does the elemental playlist do?

The elemental playlist influences activities  such as breeding dragons, collecting flowers from habitats, etc. Please see this section for detailed information on the elemental playlist. 

 

What do I do if I missed the daily elemental playlist?

If you miss this notification you can view the elemental playlist at any time by tapping the info button in the event Help menu or News menu.  

 

Why can't I purchase the new dragons from the Beachside Bungalow?

Before you can purchase one of the new event dragons you must first collect certain items. The items you need to collect can be found by tapping a locked dragon in the Beachside Bungalow. Once you have collected the required items the dragon will unlock for you to purchase. 

 

I have the required sun and moon pedestals but I can't purchase the dragons. What's wrong?

You must have 3 actual Sun Dragon pedestals and 3 actual Moon Dragon pedestals specifically, not just pedestals that have a sun or moon element

 

What happens to the eggs I breed in a Runic Breeding Cave?

The resulting egg from each breed in a Runic Breeding Cave will be exchanged for Flowers. All the dragons you breed will be logged in your Egg History, and you can choose ONE of these dragons to keep from each Runic Breeding Cave you have activated. 

 

How many eggs can I claim from my Runic Breeding Caves?

You can choose one egg to keep from each Runic Breeding Cave that was activated in your park. This includes the default cave, the bonus caves on double and triple days, the cave you activated as part of the tutorial, and any other caves you activate with additional Runestones. You can select the eggs you want to keep at any point during the event, but please choose carefully as this choice is final.

 

I forgot to claim my egg from one of my Runic Breeding Caves before it expired. Can I still claim it?

Yes, once you have activated a Runic Breeding Cave you can claim your free egg from that cave at any time during the event, even if the cave is no longer activated.

 

How do I earn more Runestones?

Runestones can be purchased in the Market. Purchasing Runestones will allow you to activate additional Runic Breeding Caves. 

 

Why did I receive the normal amount of Flowers for finding a banner-bearing visitor on a double or triple day?

On double and triple days the banner-bearing wizards will each award the same amount of Flowers, but there will be two or three times as many of them in your park. 

 

How do I acquire Spellforms for the new dragons?

In this event Spellforms can be purchased with Flowers in the Beachside Bungalow.

   

What level does a dragon need to be to have a Spellform applied?

A dragon must be at least level 4 before it can be enhanced with a Spellform. If you have used the Fountain of Youth to make your adult dragon look like a baby you will need to make it an adult or juvenile before you can apply a Spellform.

 

Will I be able to use my Spellforms after the event ends?

Yes, once you collect a Spellform it will be available for you to use indefinitely.

 

Why didn't I win the Golden Chest when I bought an additional play at the Aquatic Arcade?

Buying an additional play guarantees that a Golden Chest will appear as one of the possible prizes in that round, but does not guarantee that you will be able to win it. 

 

When does the Bright Wild Nights event end?

When the party begins to wind down we'll let you know the event is about to come to an end. When the event does end, the Beachside Bungalow will remain open for a few extra days so you can spend any leftover Flowers you may have.

 

What happens to my leftover Flowers at the end of the Bright Wild Nights event?

After the event ends and the Beachside Bungalow closes, we'll turn any leftover Flowers into DragonCash at the rate of 1,000 DragonCash per 1 Flower.
