5 different colors, 5 symbols on the stone? Possibly symbols for five new ancient breeds? That's my guess. HYYYYPE!

@Zephyria, only one (1) ancient breed will be released when the system launches on Saturday.

I just saw this and had to physically restrain myself from screaming, does this mean we're getting more than one Ancient breed??

@Midwinter, it does not. Only one (1) ancient breed will be released when the system launches.

Yup! Plague is life and survival, not death and undead.

Plaguebringer and Gladekeeper (Plague and Nature) are two sides of the same coin, with the same goal: Life and survival. It's their method that differs.

Thank you, @eefles

Unfortunately, this is an issue with all dragon tooltips around the entire site. While we're aware of the problem, we have not identified a fix, short of rewriting the dragon tooltip system entirely. There may be a fix in the future, though!

The thorny details:
Tooltips show up when you hover over something. If that tooltip is forced to show up under your mouse curser (because you're near the edge of the screen), then, for that moment, you're hovering over the tooltip, not the original item, so the tooltip goes away... but now you ARE over the original item, so the tooltip comes back... and so we are in a loop, unless your mouse ends up on a spot where the tooltip doesn't show up.

Thanks for catching the bug, @Midgardschlange

The initial cause should now be fixed, and your dragons are now showing up as they should.

While I couldn't move all of them out of the den, I do have good news - you have more free den space than you might have thought! The missing dragons were still taking up den space, even if they weren't showing, so it turns out that even after their return, you have space left.

Thanks again!

Thanks @Midgardschlange

It appears that 7 of your dragons didn't want to go to sleep when they were sent to your Hibernal Den:

As you can see when visiting the URLs above, they say they're in your Den, but I don't actually see them there when viewing your Den tabs. Someone snuck out at night.

Basically, seven dragons tried to fit in 6 beds. Can you tell me which of the dragons above you would like for me to send back to bed? The remaining one will return back to the lair, unless you prefer to free up an extra den space.

@Midgardschlange Please try the following trick and let me know what happens:

1. Go into edit mode
2. Drag your "Fodder & Sales tab" to the front of all our tabs
3. Wait a second for it to finish saving
4. Move the tab back to the normal spot

Does this correct the counter, or does it stick at 7? Also, is this your default tab when receiving new dragons? Thanks!

Hi @DeathPhoenix

A bug matching your description was found and fixed last week on this page:

I now suspect that you were actually using a similar-looking (but actually different) page here:

Both pages should now be fixed.

If you continue to see the error, please reply to this thread with an exact URL of the page where you're seeing the problem. Also include the steps taken to reproduce the error, as it will help pinpoint the cause more accurately.

I did notice that the name seems to have glitched on the skins name though, it’s meant to be “Moth-Eaten” haha. I’m not really sure who I should ping for that? @Aequorin maybe, but I’d love to get that fixed, thank you! <33

@moreii it has been corrected, but it may take a couple hours for the sites internal cache to catch up. Sorry about the mistake!

Scrying workshop Background Revamp
May 23, 2019, 13:48:05
Keep in mind that dragon culture doesn't exist solely in 11 vacuums!

Although water dragons are experts at scrying, it doesn't mean that they are the only ones that do so. It also doesn't meant that they don't do business with, for example, the scholars of the arcane flight, who may or may not be the creators of magical scrolls. There are mages and oracles spread out across the realm.

This wasn't a conversion of a feature to become elementally-themed, despite the color palette used.

(Mostly this was just an opportunity to revamp some art while we did some backend work to accommodate ancient breeds. The scroll was widened to allow for potentially longer-than-normal gene names if we need it in the future)

I think what they mean is you have a week to pick up the eliminates and vials. I don't think they'll be adding more stuff to pick up.

@Matchmaker is correct. Goodness me, please do not spread the misinformation that new gifts are gonna be poppin' off everyday lol

For the tooltips, we actually are doing our own take on a games industry standard employed across lots of different item systems.
PSA : No Scattervials in Roundsey
May 20, 2019, 13:29:23
The problem with the Vials of Scattersight is the hard reality you could need an infinite amount* a very high number of vials (and clicks) to get the desired eye on your dragon(s). That's frustrating, stressful, and not fun. If we had to go back and make the choice again, we wouldn't release the item.

Galore did present a way for us to find a compromise on natural eye type implementation. We agree with you, this could have been implemented better and we're working on that.

Errors in tooltip when collecting items

Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Kaepora
@WingedClaymore - On second thought, the tooltips have been re-updated to work the same as the hoard. It was probably more confusing than it's worth, thanks!

Skins, however, will still show an ID.

In theory, the other issue is fixed now as well, but please let me know if you see any other cases where a price is listed twice.

Thank you @WingedClaymore

I'm looking into the first of those issues. As for the item id#, please let me know if, when you see it again, it's an item that has a listed price in your hoard.

Some items don't have any sale price at all, and so we're listing the item id# there instead. This is mostly for skins, but also a few other things.

Unfortunately, that looks like a browser + zoom related error. Sort of a rounding error. I don't believe there is a quick fix at this time, but it may resolve itself because browsers are always improving how they display - particularly on phones.
