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

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

@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.

Galore's Glorious Gifts
May 20, 2019, 09:40:57

Galore’s Glorious Gifts is now live and will be used as the primary system for supporting sitewide gift items in the future. To celebrate the launch of the feature, you can log in for the next week and pick up several free items!

Galore’s Glorious Gifts

As we announced in our last Dev Update, we are changing the way we distribute limited event items (“gifts”). Rather than being deposited into the hoard of all open Flight Rising accounts (a time-intensive and system-intensive task for our team), these gifts will be safeguarded by Galore, Sornieth’s resident relic-keeper, for one week (7 days). Any open Flight Rising account is eligible to log in and collect their free gifts from him during this timeframe.

Why the change?

Galore introduces a streamlined automated system that allows us to continue providing players with limited event items (or gifts) without requiring our engineers to work late night/early morning hours or on off-days.

You can learn more about the reasoning behind the change by reading our Developer Update about it here.

Today’s Gifts

To debut the system, we are awarding free gifts, which are now available to pick up at Galore’s plot at the Trading Post. Remember: He will hold onto these items for the next 7 days, so if you can’t grab them today, that’s okay!

You have until Monday, May 27th at 10:00 server time to collect the following items from Galore:

  • 2 x Eliminate
  • 2 x Clanbound Vial of Horizontal Sight

Whoa, Hold Up, is that a Goat Eye Type Vial?


Natural Eye Type Releases

We’ve had some time as a team to discuss the community’s feedback and our approach to releasing new natural eye types in to the ecosystem of the game.

Natural eye types, by design, appear at random when hatching any new dragon in Flight Rising. This allows all players to have a chance at hatching really unique dragons that can have significant value. However, we understand that there is another side to this system. We realize that it feels frustrating when a natural eye type is released: It’s a new visual attribute you can’t interact with right away and it can’t be applied to dragons that already exist. So we’re going to do something about that.

  • Today, as part of the grand opening of Galore’s Glorious Gifts, players can collect two (2) Clanbound Vials of Horizontal Sight. This item can be used to apply the Goat eye type (our most recent natural eye type release) to any dragon.
  • Going forward, all newly-released natural eye types will also be accompanied by two (2) matching clanbound eye type vials available at Galore’s Glorious Gifts.

Our goal with this change is to ensure that we provide everyone equal & assured opportunities to apply future natural eye types to a couple of their existing dragons every time one is introduced into the system.

Item Tooltip Revamp

We're making steady progress on revamping / refactoring the codebase of the site, and it was about time for the item tooltip to receive a bit of love.

You'll find that mousing over items will now produce a tooltip that has a few new modifications:

  • The tooltip size has been slightly increased.
  • The font size of information in the tooltip has been increased to allow for better readability.
  • Items are now not only classified by a star count, but their title bar has been color-coded to indicate their rarity. (Gray, Green, Blue, Purple, Orange, Red)
  • The item icon has been added to the tooltip to hopefully help with visual clarity when mousing over items that might be linked in large volumes on the forums.
  • Many places that contained text strings have been replaced by icons (sell value, food points).


Alerts & Notifications

Alongside the launch of Galore's Glorious Gifts, we've also added a few new notification settings to the site.
  • Whenever a new gift becomes available at Galore's Glorious Gifts, you will receive an alert. This is similar to the alert that is generated when your Baldwin brews are ready.

  • We have added badge notifications to several Trading Post hub buttons to let you know if there are activities you can participate in. Such as: grabbing your daily item from Pinkerton's Plundered Pile, or how many offers are awaiting you at Crim's Collection Cart.


The latter options can be toggled off within your Account Settings.
